At French’s Point, we offer our private oceanfront estate with abundant gardens & a variety of settings for weekend festivities, including our beautiful Sail Cloth Tent to host your various weekend festivities (which would cost $40K if you were to rent the same inclusions for your celebration elsewhere).

What lighting is offered as part of the French’s Point Sail Cloth Tent package?

  • Dimmable perimeter lights
  • Dimmable up-casting pole lights that illuminate the canopy 

Do I need to hire a lighting company?

No, you do not. This amenity we offer is plenty of illumination for your celebration. However, some of our couples choose to add event lighting to the tent for the sake of design aesthetics & ambiance.

Who can install event lighting & decor?

Lighting & hanging decor that requires a ladder or lift must be installed by an approved, licensed and insured lighting professional.  We offer options on our Preferred Vendor List.

Our Preferred Lighting Companies

These providers have all worked at our property before, signed our Vendor Code of Conduct & obtains liability insurance. Choosing a lighting provider off our list will make your communications simple & more enjoyable.

Installation Time

We kindly ask that your planner schedule your lighting installation & removal within your rental term & confirm this with our office.

Candle Light

We always find that candles are an affordable lighting option if you are looking to add a nice glow to your table design, especially if you are planning to dine during or after sunset. Just remember that per Maine State Fire Marshal Regulations, all open flames must be enclosed in glass and the height of the flame cannot exceed the height of the glass, so candlesticks are not permitted.  Additionally, the breeze passing through the tent would extinguish an unprotected flame.

If you still have questions about lighting at French’s Point, please feel free to email the Property Manager at nicole.frenchspoint@gmail.com.
