The Requirement – quite normal

Goldman Wedding Reception 2006
Goldman Wedding Reception - June 2006

When David Everett at JDK Catering incorporated the use of  Tents, Lighting, Tables and Chairs for a client’s Wedding Reception, it was business as usual for Event Central.  The Reception was planned at the beautiful Lauxmont Farms located on the Susquehanna River in Wrightsville.  With an event as large as this (324 Guests)  there was the usual steps to insure success: Site visit, Scaled Drawings, Planning with the Operations Team, and the execution utilizing 3 large trucks to deliver the product over 2 days.   With our event management skills, we will use Temp Staffing for 2 days to suppliment the busiest weekend, without compromising quality.  If you have your own Midnight Madness requirement and we can help you out.  It’s what we do for a living.

The Challange – quite unusual

The Wedding ends at 11:30 PM Saturday and we have to be clear of the site by 9:00 AM Sunday to make way for a Sunday Wedding!

The Plan – quite efficient and quite SAFE

The A Crew of 15 people converged on the site at Midnight, broken up into 3 teams.  Team 1 focused on interiors knockdown, and truck loading.  Team 2 focused on all the away goods and small tents, while Team 3 concentrated on the main tent, sidewall, lighting, power cords and supervising teams 1 and 2.  The Centerpoles were being pulled at 2:30, and the trucks were pulling into the 24 Hour Diner on Rt 30 at 6:30 with an exhausted crew.

We pride ourselves on running a safe and clean business.  If we are in your back yard for 2 days on a setup, you can be comfortable with the integrety and quality of the staff we use.  When we leave the site,  you can know the tent is installed per the Manufacturers specifications, and that we factored in the unique site conditions before we even set foot on the property with a installation crew.

Event Central has the recources to do any size job, from a Popcorn Machine rental at Commerce Bank to The Grand Opening of the Whitaker Center.

One thought on “Midnight Wedding Tent Take Down at Lauxmont Farms Central PA”

  1. Hi-
    I am an event planner in NY. I just opened my own business and am building a website- only problem is that I do not have any photos to use, as my past events were run through a different company (and I did not receive rights to those photos.)
    I love the picture of the Goldman wedding reception and was wondering if I could use it in my website. I would not say that I planned this event, I just want to use it to show what I CAN do. I would give credit to you.
    Thank you,
