We caught up with Susie Tyler Alofs, CEO and founder of Southwest Teepee and Event Rental, to learn more about how creating a beautiful aesthetic is everything to make a special moment unique and remembered.
Please tell us a little bit about Southwest Teepee and Event Rental, and what is available for weddings
Southwest Teepee & Event Rental is a woman-owned business. Our inspiration comes from a combination of mid century modern and an updated Southwestern aesthetic. Although we do offer southwestern-inspired structures like Teepees, Glamping Tents, and our Modern Lantern Style Tent, we also have a beautiful selection of dining tables, chairs, lounge furniture and the like! Our furniture is not “rental style” but beautiful pieces you would find in a well-appointed home!
How can couples make their wedding unique with décor elements?
Our trademarked “Naked Teepee” Lounge is our signature piece, a lighted 26-foot open structure that seats 30 guests inside. This is the perfect Southwestern Cocktail Lounge where 30 people are all facing one another and can easily dialogue.
Our 16-foot Wedding Tent is not only the tallest stake-free Wedding Tent on the West coast, but also our most popular for wedding ceremonies and sweetheart tables. It is a custom, stake-free structure that can be installed anywhere on any property or inside any venue.
Our glamping Tents are furnished with luxury decor and are used as the On Location Bridal Suite where the bride and her court spend the day together getting ready.
What are some of the most popular teepee styles for weddings?
The most popular teepee for a wedding lounge grouping is the Naked Teepee. They can be furnished with a light gray and white wedding style. For a more southwestern style, chosen especially for Sedona weddings, the saddle sofas and modern rustic accents are the most popular.
