EEL Chicago Weekend in Review | October 23rd – 24th, 2015

It was a busy Fall Wedding Weekend at Elegant Event Lighting Chicago!


The weekend began on Friday, October 23rd, 2015 with Jaime Green & Jason Erickson’s beautiful Wedding Ceremony & Reception at Hotel Arista in Naperville, IL!

Jaime & Jason exchanged vows in front of a simple, elegant white fabric drape design. The drape was illuminated in soft white uplighting and provided the perfect backdrop for the ceremony.

After cocktail hour, Jaime & Jason’s guests were welcomed back into the ballroom with pleated white fabric draping that adorned the wall behind the couple’s head table. The entire length of drape was bathed in purple uplighting.

The Elegant Event Lighting Team covered Hotel Arista’s wood dance floor in a brilliant white vinyl cover. The couple’s custom monogram was overlaid in the center and the color coordinated perfectly with the uplighting!


We loved working with Carolyn Flueckiger of Revel Décor on Melanie & Marcell’s Wedding at the Thompson Hotel in Chicago, IL on Saturday, October 24th, 2015!

Elegant Event Lighting Chicago created a gorgeous drape design that transformed the space for the Melanie & Marcell’s ceremony.

A beautiful decorative drape entrance welcomed guests and the draping continued along the walls to create an intimate space for the couple to say their “I Do’s.”

Behind the ceremony altar, the EEL Chicago Team designed a decorative double-layer backdrop that was adorned with top valences and top layer swags.

A canopy of café globe lights ran over the patio off the Sycamore Room. The lights glowed in warm amber and created a wonderful romantic ambiance.

Our team also covered Hotel Arista’s wood dance floor in a high gloss white vinyl cover that created a focal point for the couple’s special dances throughout the evening.
