Meet The Team!

Teamwork makes the dream work! Get to know some of our staff at EEL in today’s #WeddingWednesday blog post 🙂 Today the spotlight goes to: Susie & Erin!
I am Susie. I am starting my second year with Elegant Event Lighting as the warehouse supervisor. I hold a degree in Stage Management and Technical Theatre from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. For more than ten years, I have worked as a stage manager around Chicago for various theatre, dance, and circus companies.  Though I do enjoy attending events, I am much more comfortable in the preparation that happens behind the scenes. I find that the wedding industry is such a happy industry and I really value helping make your day extra special. When I’m not managing the warehouse, you can find me practicing circus skills on a trapeze and aerial straps.

Hello, I’m Erin, the Assistant Warehouse Manager of EEL! I received my BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago. My focus was large format oil painting, though I explored many other mediums including sculpture and installation art which I incorporate into my work at EEL as much as possible. I got into the wedding field because I look at every wedding as an art instillation and seek to help make the bride’s artistic vision come to life on their special day. My major hobby is oil painting and creating art out of found objects, including the pallets that are thrown out in the EEL dumpster. Fun fact about me? I am obsessed with my animals, mostly my adorable dog Dobby who is amazing and my cat Cupcake, who basically just coexists in the household.  

Thank you for taking the time to get to know them! Stay tuned next week for more introductions. Happy Wedding Wednesday!
