Our COVID-19 Response
We know that things are uncertain right now. As guidelines keep evolving, we want you to know that we’re evolving along with them. Our experienced event planners are available Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM, to provide complimentary estimates and answer questions about existing or future events. We’ve weathered many storms – it’s what we do!
Sometimes your own backyard is the best wedding venue of all. We love backyard weddings because they are all about you: your family, your traditions, your stomping grounds. If you’ve decided to forgo a venue and get married at home, you’ve come to the right place. We provide not only the industry’s most elegant rental tents – the only ones handcrafted out of genuine sailcloth. BUT we also excel at creating outdoor venues from scratch, a feat that involves not just tents but also tent sides, dance floors, stages for live bands, under-tent lighting, and landscape lighting. Then there are more practical concerns like fans, heaters, generators, and outdoor restrooms. Luckily for you, we do it all! And the final result will wow, no matter your guest count.
Maybe you wanted a smaller, more low-key wedding from the start, or maybe you’re just coming around to the idea. Whichever way you got here, we love intimate weddings! From a practical standpoint, they are more easily adaptable to changing health guidelines. From a big-picture perspective, a smaller wedding is a powerful statement about love in challenging times. We have a variety of tent shapes that are perfect for weddings with 10-50 guests.
Micro Now, Macro Later
We love this idea – have a small wedding ceremony and party now; then have a big reception later. It’s the best of both worlds. And the good news is we have a tent size for every need, whether it’s a small, private ceremony for immediate family in 2020 or a full-size reception in 2021. We all know that activities right now are safest outdoors, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need protection from the elements and a beautiful, elegant outdoor space.
We are the original Sperry Tents office, established in 1996, with over 30 years’ experience making outdoor weddings and events in Metro Boston, the South Shore, South Coast, Cape Cod, Rhode Island, and eastern Connecticut as luxurious, elegant, and seamless as possible.
A sailcloth Sperry Tent is the best wedding tent made today: it’s beautifully designed, with a luxurious feel. Renting a Sperry Tent makes any outdoor wedding or event supremely elegant and truly memorable.
We specialize in creating customized venues from scratch – across beautiful Southern New England, in fields and backyards, on farms and beaches, and everywhere in between – with authentic Sperry Tents. When up-close detailing and superior aesthetics are important, Sperry Tents, with our handcrafted sailcloth canopies, amber wood support pools, and waving pennant flags, are a natural choice.
We look forward to working with you on your dream wedding or special occasion. To get started, find the right sailcloth Sperry Tent for you.

Tent Rentals for Weddings: When Elegance Matters
Your wedding tent is not just a practical cover for rain and sun: it is your venue; it needs to impress. You want your rental tent to be as elegant and attractive as possible, holding up to the scrutiny of guests, the flash of a professional camera, and of course your own high standards. It is vital to choose a handcrafted Sperry Tent when aesthetics matter most.
From the picturesque coastal towns of South Shore MA, to the beaches and summer properties of Cape Cod, to the unspoiled coastline of Rhode Island and Eastern Conn., we tent at a variety of top-rated wedding venues and resorts as well as private residences. Whether the setting is a beach, field, farm, historic estate, museum, nature sanctuary, or even your own backyard, our experienced event coordinators are here to walk you through the planning process.
Quality Sailcloth Tents
The Sperry Tent is like no other tent on the market. The first one was designed by sailmaker Steve Sperry using the tools he had on-hand in his sail loft in Marion, Mass. He employed his artistic eye, fabric know-how, and even his own personal sawmill to craft the parts for the first-ever Sperry Tent, unwittingly starting a revolution in the look and feel of event tents. Other manufacturers responded and tried to mimic us, but their versions are still made from vinyl, not sailcloth. Our sailcloth canopies are lyrical, breathable, and translucent, resulting in that unmistakable #sperryglow at night that is so Instagram worthy.
“Our tent was GORGEOUS and Sperry tents was so easy to work with! We compared other tent companies and Sperry came out on top in terms of quality and aesthetics as well as what you get for your dollar. Rob met with us several weeks prior to the event at our venue to map out the tent which was so helpful. He even provided a visual diagram of the space to show how the tent would fit which made planning out the rest of the floor plan so easy. Together, we even created a “sun” and a “rain” plan (and thankfully didn’t need the latter). I am so glad that we chose to work with Sperry Tents and I would choose them again in a heartbeat!”

“So glad I got Sperry Tents for my wedding! Cannot recommend them highly enough. The tents are absolutely gorgeous. Our guests were floored by how classy it made a backyard wedding. Lots of our guests came up to us and said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and the tents were a huge part of that. We also loved how closely Sperry was willing to work with us to get the correct size and layout in a nontraditional hilly New England backyard. Setup and break down went smoothly. We got onion lamps in one tent and the string lights in the other. The string lights were really magical for the dance floor. The onions were good for better lighting during dinner. Communication with Sperry was incredible – my emails were all answered within 24 hours. And so thankful for that last minute flexibility in the last few days before the wedding when the forecast kept switching. Yes, Sperry tents cost a bit more than the cheapest tents out there but it is worth every penny.”
