Elegant Event Lighting Chicago Weekend in Review | May 16th-18th, 2014

Wedding Season is in full swing with another busy weekend here at Elegant Event Lighting Chicago!  We enjoyed working with our couples to create their custom lighting and décor, and could not be happier with how each design came to life!

The weekend began with the Riordan Rehearsal Dinner on Friday, May 16th, 2014 at Fulton’s on the River in Chicago, IL.  We absolutely love the pleated fabric swags and chandelier design on the veranda!

Rebekah Roberts & Charles Reese said their “I Dos” on Saturday, May 17th, 2014 at the Garfield Park Community Worship Center in Chicago, IL.  The Elegant Event Lighting Team designed the couple’s beautiful white fabric backdrop which we illuminated with malibu blue uplighting.

We also wrapped the perimeter columns in white drape and lit the inner columns in matching malibu blue uplighting.  The column décor perfectly complemented the head table draping and lighting design!

Erica Enstrom & Matt Johnson hosted their Wedding Ceremony and Reception on Saturday, May 17th, 2014 at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, IL.

The couple’s outdoor ceremony took place at the Boat House.  Elegant Event Lighting draped the two railings leading up to the Boat House and hung beautiful crystal jewels from the two trees.

Our team also created a dramatic drape entrance for Erica & Matt’s guests in the lobby.

We added a pop of color by uplighting the perimeter of the Waterfront Room in light lavender.  Erica & Matt chose a gorgeous ivy leaf pattern lighting design that we projected on the ceiling and walls for the reception.

Danielle Miskewitch & Charles Eusswein had their Batman and Catwoman themed Wedding Reception on Saturday, May 17th, 2014 at the Hilton Garden Inn St. Charles in St. Charles, IL.

Our team designed the beautiful white fabric backdrop which welcomed Danielle & Charles’ guests.  Dark blue uplighting added a dramatic pop of color to totally transform the room for the couple’s reception.

The Elegant Event Lighting Team draped the pre-function lobby with soft ivory fabric.  This décor element beautifully highlighted the couple’s photos, wedding flowers and guest place cards.

Our team covered Hotel Arista’s wood dance floor in a soft matte ivory vinyl cover.   The couple chose a gorgeous custom pink monogram which put the finishing touch on the dance floor.
