Elegant Event Lighting Chicago Weekend in Review | August 30th-31st, 2014

We had a busy Labor Day Weekend at Elegant Event Lighting Chicago!

The weekend began with Hamsa Mahendranathan & Alex Brumel’s Wedding Ceremony & Reception on Saturday, August 30th, 2014 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, IL!

Hamsa & Alex’s ceremony décor began with eight gold fabric wrapped flower pedestals that lined the aisle.  Elegant Event Lighting also provided the aisle runner and matching covers for the stage and steps.

The Elegant Event Lighting Team designed the beautiful ivory and gold backdrop that adorned the stage and was illuminated in soft lighting.

Hamsa & Alex said their “I Do’s” underneath a gorgeous, custom Mandap/Chuppah.  We absolutely love how our team incorporated the traditional saris into the design!

For the couple’s reception, the EEL Team repurposed the ceremony backdrop to go behind the band.  The backdrop was softly lit with amber uplighting.

Many thanks to Christine Stone of Tying the Knot.


It was wonderful working with Oilver Vasilopoulos of Entourage Mobile Entertainment on his client’s wedding on Saturday, August 30th, 2014 at Odyssey Country Club in Tinley Park, IL.  We love the pickup design of the air wall!

Anh Lu & Linden Lindquist had a beautiful Wedding Reception on Saturday, August 30th, 2014 at Embassy Suites O’Hare in Rosemont, IL!

Anh & Linden’s lighting and décor design began with draping of the six doorways in the Ballroom.  Each of the ivory drape entrances were accented with hunter green fabric and illuminated with soft amber uplighting.
