Our weekend was filled with lanterns…over 200 and it couldn’t have been more amazing! What a unique and dramatic effect lanterns of all shapes and sizes can have on your wedding.
Our team at Elegant Event Lighting created 2 beautiful venue transformations this past weekend using hanging lanterns.
At Drury Lane Oak Brook our team transformed both the Ceremony space and the main ballroom utilizing the bride’s color palette of ivory and coral. Steve and his team from Phillips Flowers brought in hot pink rose petals to cover the ceremony aisle runner and gorgeous centerpieces throughout the ballroom to complete the look.
We hung 200 paper lanterns above the gorgeous ivory dance floor that our team provided along with a dramatic coral border. Wow!! Upon entering the ballroom you felt so much warmth and drama which truly reflected the vision our bride and her family wanted to create.
Next stop was The Ivy Room in Chicago…a gorgeous, historic loft space downtown. Our bride Ashley envisioned outdoor lanterns floating thorughout the room above each table and the dance floor. To bring in the “Ivy” theme, we provided pattern projections of ivy and leaves along with amber uplighting around the perimeter of the space. We also created a beautiful drape as an entryway to their photobooth.
