full-service event rental company based in Farmington,
Minn., was contacted by a happy couple who planned
to say their " I-do's " on a picturesque farm in rural Iowa.

to let them know ahead of time what she was envisioning
and looking for. " We had about 20 different Party
CAD drawings with 3D imaging for the clients to see
how things would look, " says Haas. " Everyone was on

Tents and custom creations
The tents selected for the formal farm wedding included
