THE LUNDQUIST WEDDING

With a pandemic in full swing, Megan Lundquist was unsure of whether her fairytale wedding story was truly a possibility. It was up in the air if they would even be able to get married amongst the throes of 2020, let alone host a medium-sized to large-sized wedding. With Megan’s dream of a romantic, timeless wedding and the reality of social distancing, pocket hand sanitizers, and face masks, planning posed a significant challenge. 

How does one conquer the task of curating a timeless event in the midst of such unprecedented circumstances? How does one marry mandates and imagination, shutdowns, and vision?

HOST Rentals was up for the task.

THE GOALS

Simple

Delicate

Romantic

 

Timeless

THE APPROACH

A questionnaire to match the bride’s ‘romantic, delicate’ taste with exceptional rental items.

A mood board crafted by Host, including three design routes for Megan to choose from.*

Sleek, ivory plates, rose gold flatware, mix-matched blue & clear goblets, and a cream, linen tablecloth to host the most stunning tablescape.

THE RESULTS

A stress-free wedding day, with Host in charge of the entire setup and teardown process. 

A fulfilled dream, with Megan’s big day turning out exactly how she had envisioned.

As wedding planning progressed, Megan began exploring rental companies in the area, looking for design help with her table landscape. “I didn’t really want to go with something that was a fad for right now,” the bride relayed. Her coordinator, Gabby Pesetsky, recommended HOST because of their “eclectic” and unique items. Megan loved their social media aesthetic and began filling out the questionnaire online, checking off dishware, glassware, flatware, napkins, and HOST’s mood board. HOST’s Founder, Kenzie Veit, presented three mood boards with different design routes and customized collections. She even included small details (like long, slender candlesticks as seen in Photo ___) that Megan hadn’t asked or thought about, but that matched the vision. 

 

Sleek, ivory plates were accompanied by rose gold flatware. Cream linen tablecloths rested beside groovy, mix-matched goblets. Layered textures of sleek and rugged, delicate and weighted, enveloped the tablescape, entrancing guests with beautiful design. Each item, each grain, each touch reiterated the day’s theme: timeless romance. “The little things really matter, and Host has the most intentional and thoughtful little things,” Gabby said. “As the wedding coordinator, it makes my job more fun when I get to work with Host because I get to work with all the beautiful things.”

 

With Host in charge of the entire setup and teardown process, Megan didn’t have to worry about handing dishes back to the right person or cleaning the linens. The process was incredibly simple. “It was so easy... I didn’t have to think twice about it.” Amidst a global pandemic, Megan was able to have her dream wedding. Thanks to HOST and Kenzie, Megan said, her day “turned out exactly how I wanted it to be.”
