American Midwest Bank Grand Opening | August 7th, 2014

American Midwest Bank hosted their St. Charles Branch Grand Opening on Thursday, August 7th, 2014!  Elegant Event Lighting Chicago created a custom lighting and décor design that transformed the bank for the Great Gatsby themed celebration!

Elegant Event Lighting Chicago rolled out the red carpet to welcome all of American Midwest Bank’s guests to the grand opening!  The L-shaped red carpet stretched from the door to the parking lot and was lined with red velour stanchion ropes.

After walking the red carpet, guests made their way to the entrance that was adorned with a red velour drape opening.

Inside, the lobby lighting and décor design began with a black and white fabric starburst ceiling canopy which radiated from the room’s center chandelier.

The Elegant Event Lighting Chicago Team also designed a silver drape wall with three openings in front of the teller windows to create a festive front for the bar.

A crystal chandelier accented the top of each drape opening in front of the bar.  We absolutely love the classic touch of glamour that the chandeliers added to the décor!

The EEL Team illuminated the perimeter lobby walls with soft red uplighting, which perfectly complemented the black, white and silver draping elements.

Pin beam spotlighting enhanced the black and white feather centerpieces on each of the highboy tables in the lobby.

To incorporate the lighting and décor theme in the dessert room, Elegant Event Lighting Chicago created a matching black and white starburst ceiling canopy.

All of the lighting and décor elements were perfectly tied together and enhanced the Great Gatsby theme!  It was an absolute pleasure working with Beth and Kim to bring their lighting and décor vision to life for the American Midwest Bank Grand Opening!  Thank you for trusting Elegant Event Lighting and on behalf of our entire team, congratulations on a successful event!
