Testimonials

“I would like take a moment to share the most positive experience we had using The Event Company.
I cannot express enough how impressed I was during the almost year long planning of my daughter’s wedding.  
It was just perfect — the tent was beautiful, lighting magical, cloth wraps on the poles added perfect finishing touches, farm tables exactly what my daughter wanted and the weather pristine!
Words cannot express the appreciation I had especially for Missy!  For all of her wonderful help, guidance, patience, detail, suggestions — from the tables to chairs to floor plans to location and decoration options.  She was flexible, accommodating and amazing! 

We even enjoyed the ‘put up day’ and ‘take down day’ of the tent … Special thanks to Taylor for his great work!  What a great guy, working side-by-side with his team during set-up.  He kept all on track and what hard workers all! 

The Event Company exceeded our expectations in every way — their product, Missy’s guidance and even the price!  
So many thanks to the entire team — they have left a lasting impression, I would not hesitate to recommend them and look forward to our next opportunity!”

“Our casual backyard July wedding celebration for our April bride and groom was made beautiful and well-defined by the stunning sailcloth tent set up by The Event Company. Taylor came to the house to discuss details and was able to provide us with everything we wanted: farm tables for a country look for food service and high tops and rounds covered in crisp turquoise tablecloths encircled by white garden chairs. The look was lovely. The dance floor was perfect and encouraged revelers of all ages! Set-up and break-down were professional, easy and done with speed and care to our yard. Missy in the office was fantastic, answering our questions, adjusting our plans as needed, and being friendly and gracious at all times. Will call on The Event Company for future events, and thank them so much for making our special event even more special.”

“For 35 year I have been catering large tented events and have worked with many vendors, but since meeting Taylor 14 years ago, we have used him and the Event Company exclusively.
 In addition to the quality of the products they are an absolute pleasure to work with.  I have asked them to do some very creative tenting, lighting and decor and each time Taylor and his team exceed my expectations !!”

“Taylor Hedges and The Event Company staff are so impressive. Melissa (Missy) Pierce and crew truly works like the well-oiled machine they are. Without exception, they are professional, incredibly hardworking and a pleasure to work with. I have worked with this outfit for many years and look forward to many more at the all new Beauport Hotel Gloucester. Everyone on their team is so responsive, helpful and reassuring, they make event planning remarkably easy.”

“The Event Company had everything we needed for a large outdoor wedding, from the sailcloth tent my daughter had her heart set on, to the onion globe lighting that gave the event the nautical feel she was looking for. Even when we’d loose track of all the minute details needed for the big day, The Event Company never did. It was flawless service for a perfect wedding.”

“I love working with TEC, Missy, and Taylor. They make a point to make sure that we know what we are getting and try to seek out what we need – which might not be something that they have right on hand. They are thorough, responsive and reliable.”

“The Event Company is one of our most trusted event partners when it comes to tents and rentals. Taylor Hedges is extremely knowledgeable and great to work with, especially when it comes to logistics of private home weddings and events.
