Absolutely Perfect

Dena and Jeff were so great to work with on the tent and event rentals for my Fall wedding. Dena was extremely responsive and professional - always happy to get on the phone and talk through any questions. Jeff even took the time to go out to the site to measure and make sure that everything that I wanted could be accommodated on my wedding day. The tent, tables, chairs, lighting, dancefloor.. everything looked absolutely perfect and I couldn't have been happier. It was stunning. Thank you

Beautiful tent and service!

We are so glad we used Durkin Tent for our wedding. The tent was absolutely beautiful. We had our wedding in my parent's yard and we weren't certain what size tent we could fit or whether it was a feasible location. The people from Durkin came by and measured and let us know a few options for sizes of tents and gave recommendations of where to put them. When the landscaping of the yard changed, they came by again and reassessed where the tent should go and what size it should be. They gave amazing advice and were thoughtful and professional throughtout the process. The set up and take down of the tent went so smoothly and it looked SO beautiful inside and out. We are so glad we chose to work with them and can't thank them enough!

I would tell you to look no further for a company if you are having your wedding at Candlelight Farms Inn, but I need you to know you should look no further, PERIOD, regardless of the venue. Durkin's is comfortable with Candlelight Farms, knows the set up, goes there frequently. But the truth of the matter is, they are a fantastic rental company no matter the venue. Their sailcloth tent is to DIE for, and the staff, especially Jeff and Dena, are so warm and welcoming. The tent added the perfect touch to our rustic wedding, but working with Jeff was something we were so grateful for. Humbling people make up this company, and their work and their tents, were absolutely top quality. Our wedding on September 16, 2017 at Candlelight Farms was one we won't ever forget. The tent was great!
