Stephanie & Anthony’s Morton Arboretum Wedding | February 20th, 2016

Morton_Arboretum_Gingko_CeremonyWe loved working with Stephanie Lopez & Anthony Dastice to design the custom lighting and decor for their beautiful Wedding Ceremony & Reception on Saturday, February 20th, 2016 at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL!

Elegant Event Lighting lined the aisle with eight white fabric flower pedestals that were illuminated with white lighting. Each pedestal had a glass mirrored top that was accented with white branches.

White sheer fabric was draped down each side of the aisle and swagged from each pedestal.  Our team also provided the matching white fabric aisle runner to coordinate with the other ceremony decor.

The EEL Chicago Team also draped the room’s partition air wall with white fabric that was illuminated in crisp white lighting.


Elegant Event Lighting began Stephanie & Anthony’s custom lighting and decor design by draping the perimeter of the Gingko Room with crisp white draping.  The entire length of drape was bathed in vibrant blue uplighting which coordinated perfectly with the other decor details of their winter themed reception.

The head table was adorned with white fabric pedestals that were illuminated in blue lighting.

EEL Chicago covered Morton Arboretum’s existing wood dance floor with high gloss white vinyl and overlaid Stephanie & Anthony’s custom snowflake monogram in the center!

To make the high gloss and monogram stand out, the dance floor was illuminated with a soft white spotlight.

Here’s what Stephanie & Anthony had to say about Elegant Event Lighting:

“I am so happy we decided to go with Elegant Event Lighting as a vendor for my wedding day. The reception décor and draping were absolutely beautiful! It was everything I envisioned and more!! My guests are still talking about it! The staff was professional and was able to answer all my questions without hesitation and that was satisfying to my husband and I. I couldn’t have chosen a better decorator to beautify my venue and light up the faces of my guests.  I would recommend this vendor hands down. You won’t be disappointed!”

Stephanie & Anthony – thank you again for choosing Elegant Event Lighting to be a part of your special day!  We wish you all the best as you begin your journey as husband and wife!
