Gina & Jun’s Wedding at Chicago Marriott O’Hare | May 31st, 2014

Gina & Jun had a gorgeous wedding reception on Saturday, May 31st, 2014 at Chicago Marriott O’Hare in Chicago, IL.  We loved working with them to completely transform the O’Hare Ballroom for their special day!

Gina & Jun’s custom lighting and décor design began with a beautiful pleated ivory sheer head table backdrop that our team accented with fabric valences and swags.  We absolutely love the warm, romantic glow that the fairy lights added to the overall lighting and décor design.

Warm Amber Uplighting accented the perimeter of the O’Hare Ballroom at various points to provide balance and symmetry in Gina & Jun’s lighting design.

To make Gina & Jun’s travel-themed centerpieces ‘pop,’ our team highlighted them with pinspot lighting.

Here is what Gina & Jun had to say about Elegant Event Lighting Chicago:

“After booking our DJ with Something 2 Dance 2, their sister company. We were looking over information from a brochure that was given to us. Communication with Tamara and Jay were always prompt, never waiting long for information we were curious to know! We decided on a monogram light on our dancefloor and some uplighting around the room to give our wedding a little more personal touch. After meeting with Jay for our DJ and lighting plans a month before the wedding, we reviewed what I had wanted from email communication and he was able to show us lighting effects in their showroom. Seeing the effects and color solidified our decision. We changed uplighting from teal to amber to give our room a more romantic feel and to not flood our room with our wedding color. Jay came up with a monogram and we were able to modify it to our liking. We wanted a special twinkle light backdrop for our head table and it did not disappoint!! IT was exactly how I imagined it in my head. During our meeting, Jay showed us how pin lighting would look on our cake and our special travel centerpieces. We also added that last minute too! Wedding day came and we snuck in the ballroom before everyone entered to see the magic come to life!! IT was beautiful and breathtaking. I still remember it clearly in my head. Backdrop perfect, lighting around the room, soft and romantic. Everyone complimenting our cake and topper, and most likely just because it was lit up! Thanks to Jay and the team at Elegant Event Lighting for an amazing setting for our wedding!”


It was an absolute pleasure working with Gina & Jun to transform their wedding lighting and décor vision into a reality!  We cannot thank you enough for your kind words about the EEL Chicago Team and wish you all the best as you begin your married life together!
