Milestone Event Rental helped turn its client's
vision-a wedding where New York style meets
Iowa heartland-into a stunning reality.
could properly support the center poles
when they installed their own looring, "
says Haas. " The looring itself cost too
much, so the client stained the plywood. "
To make their time worthwhile, the
team from Milestone completed staking
for the tents during that same site
visit. Haas also installed the cabling that
would run throughout the tent by ladder
as the loor was being painted on
that day. Custom tooling was also hung
throughout the pole barn.

Challenges
According to Haas, the chandelier process
was one for the record books.
" Keeping the cables hidden and out of
sight was the goal. "
Tables were set out three days prior
to the wedding so that Haas and his
team could igure out the location of
the drop-down cables and run extension
cords throughout the ceiling. " Even
with a CAD drawing there were some
table adjustments, which normally isn't
a big thing except when you want a
chandelier to hang directly above those
tables, " says Haas.
During the morning of the wedding,
the remaining chandeliers were put up
and leveled. " And then they were taken
down to be moved and slightly re-hung-
which turned out to be a lengthy process, "
says Haas. Greenery was used as the
inishing touch to hide the cables.
Grand fi nale
For the most part, the wedding celebration
went smoothly. However, there was
one close call later in the day: a lashlood
warning. " During the evening, I was
called back on-site to install [tent] walls
and, if needed, have everyone evacuate
the tent. " Luckily, the weather stayed in
check and everything went as planned.
The following day, the team dismantled
the tents in soaking rain. " The ground was
so saturated that just walking on it caused
your feet to get wet. We had a loor to walk
back and forth on, but the Tent OX™ was
of no use to us and would have destroyed
the ground, " says Haas. Stakes and the catering
looring had to be hand carried out.
Booming business
Since the wedding, Haas says that Milestone
Event Rental has seen a dramatic
increase in demand in Iowa. " It's to the
point where we are doing more dollar
volume in Iowa over Minnesota right
now, " he says. " Pictures on Instagram and
Pinterest really sell this wedding, but it's
the chandeliers and cabling system that
we are being asked to replicate. "
