Labor Day: Part One!

Labor day weekend was an absolute blast for our team at EEL Chicago! There were many amazing weddings we were honored to be a part of. Since we have so many photos we want to share, we’ve split this weekend into two blog posts- here’s number one!

Our weekend started off Friday with Caitlin & John’s Wedding at Morgan Manufacturing! Working with Erica at Estera Events made for a great team. Amber uplighting illuminated the space, marquee letters were placed on the bar for Caitlin & John, and three crystal chandeliers were suspended over the couple’s dance floor.

On Saturday our team headed to Galleria Marchetti to install a white sheer cloud canopy over the pergola, crystal chandeliers, and a single swag backdrop behind James & Roxanne’s sweethearttable.

Next stop: Hotel Arista for Nicole & Rick’s fabulous evening. We had the pleasure of working with Katie Jones at Hotel Arista and Nicole Hensley at Story Book Weddings & Events. The couple’s ceremony was beautifully illuminated in amber uplighting with an ivory fabric backdrop and ivory sheer bridal canopy.

The space was then transformed into a dreamy reception with blush pink uplighting and a matte ivory dance floor with a black border for Nicole & Rick’s cake to be displayed.

We worked with the wonderful Jenna Mostacchio for her couple’s wedding at the Conrad Chicago to create an elegant white fabric swagged backdrop.

Joy & Lloyd’s wedding at Abbington Distinctive Banquets looked great with warm amber uplighting and two ivory fabric backdrops.

Lindsey & John’s ivory fabric backdrop with amber uplighting at Bolingbrook Golf Club looked fantastic behind their sweetheart table!

We loved the colors in their floral centerpieces! Pin beam lighting drew the perfect amount of attention to each floral piece.

Amber uplighting illuminated the walls of the Washington/Kennedy room.

Pin beam lighting also shined on the couple’s wedding cake.

To top if off, an ivory sheer starburst canopy decorated the ceiling to create more depth to the rooms.

Stay tuned for Part Two of our exciting weekend!
