Hotel Arista Tasting

Our EEL Chicago team went out on November 19th, 2016 to set up for the wedding tasting at Hotel Arista that would follow the next day. Brides, grooms,  family & friends were able to taste wonderful catering & explore all the decor possibilities for their future weddings at the hotel!

Guests entered through our white entrance draping that was softly illuminated with white uplighting.

The grand entrance was also white drape and uplighting, with the difference of a round entrance as opposed to our traditional straight!

A wall which usually has an uncovered painting was decorated with a beautiful drape wall included an illuminated monogram showing “Eat, Drink, & Be Married!”

Brides were able to see the credenza wall, again usually displaying a painting, with draping and valences to make their place card location pop!

The right half of the room followed a romanic theme, with our ivory drape wall customized with hanging candles. The left half was glitz+glam, and our beautiful turquoise drape with crystal curtains was included in this.

We demonstrated various uplight colors around the room matching with centerpieces and table linen.

Pin beam lighting was installed to make centerpieces from various florists glow, a very important part of receptions!

Our creative dance floors are always a hit, so we decided to show both a striped design and our traditional white vinyl!

This was our first time doing a ceiling canopy design at Hotel Arista and guests loved it! Our shining crystal chandelier hung in the middle over the dance floor.

This was such a fun experience for both our team and all other vendors we were able to work with to make this happen. The room came together and was stunning overall, thank you to all of the wedding coordinators at Hotel Arista for making this possible and letting us be involved in such a great event!
