It was another busy wedding weekend at Elegant Event Lighting Chicago!

The weekend started on Friday, August 8th, 2014 for the Christensen Wedding at Hilton Garden Inn St. Charles in St. Charles, IL.  Elegant Event Lighting Chicago designed the gorgeous white fabric head table backdrop.

The gold and amber tones of Kerri & Paul’s design perfectly complimented the other elements of their Great Gatsby themed wedding décor!


Molly Hobbs & Chris Gaynor had a beautiful Wedding Reception on Saturday, August 9th, 2014 at the Belvedere in Elk Grove Village, IL!  Molly & Chris’ custom lighting and décor design began with a beautiful pleated ivory backdrop.  The backdrop ran along the room’s air wall and was illuminated in light blush pink uplighting.

The EEL Team created a decorative drape design in the middle of the backdrop which perfectly framed the head table.  To complete the design, EEL Chicago lit the head table with a blush pink color wash!

Elegant Event Lighting Chicago also covered the Belvedere’s existing wood dance floor with a soft, seamless ivory vinyl cover and overlaid Molly & Chris’ custom pink monogram in the center.
