Elegant Event Lighting Weekend in Review | June 28th & 29th, 2014

It’s the day before a three-day holiday weekend and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than swooning over our couple’s custom lighting and décor designs from their wedding celebrations on Saturday, June 28th and Sunday, June 29th, 2014!

Katherine Murphy & Stephen Cary hosted their wedding reception at the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame in Chicago, IL.  The couple’s lighting and décor design began with vibrant purple uplighting around the perimeter of the room.  We absolutely love how the uplighting beautifully accented the room’s architectural features!

Our team designed a soft ivory fabric drape wall that ran floor to ceiling and was adorned with gorgeous valences.  To complement the perimeter uplighting, the drape wall was also illuminated in purple.

Elegant Event Lighting Chicago also designed the White Lounge Vignette in front of the drape wall which provided a space for Katherine & Stephen’s guests to mingle throughout the evening.

To complete Katherine & Stephen’s lighting and décor design, the EEL Team enhanced the elegant floral centerpieces with Pin Beam Lighting.


Lauren Kubik & Fred Mondt had a beautiful wedding reception at the Marriott Burr Ridge in Burr Ridge, IL!  Lauren & Fred’s guests were welcomed by a beautiful white fabric head table backdrop illuminated in soft blue.  To add the finishing touch to the head table décor, Elegant Event Lighting Chicago shined Lauren & Fred’s personalized monogram in the middle of the backdrop.

Jennifer Borchardt & Jon Nichols celebrated their “I Do’s” with family and friends at Venuti’s in Addison, IL.  Elegant Event Lighting Chicago designed the white fabric backdrop that accented the bridal head table.  Soft white lighting illuminated the backdrop and added a romantic ambiance to the Venezia Ballroom.

Brittany Debrauwere & Andy Wiedor’s wedding reception was in the Nirvana Ballroom at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel in Schaumburg, IL.  Guests were greeted for cocktail hour in the Nirvana Threshold with a soft, flowing white drape wall.  The draping created an inviting entrance for the couple’s family and friends.

The EEL Team covered the Renaissance Schaumburg’s wood dance floor in a brilliant, high gloss ivory cover and overlaid Brittany & Andy’s custom gold vinyl monogram in the center.  To make the high gloss dance floor and monogram pop, Elegant Event Lighting Chicago softly lit the dance floor with downlighting.

To create a beautiful setting for Brittany & Andy’s band, Elegant Event Lighting designed a pleated ivory fabric backdrop.  The backdrop was illuminated with soft lavender.  Amber lighting was also incorporated to complement the perimeter uplighting around the Nirvana Ballroom.

  1. I need to drape 15″ tall walls for an event. I have approximately 300 linear feet to drape. What would you suggest.
