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