Chris from Illume was so nice to work with! He made sure our vision for the reception was completely captured. He had reasonable pricing and his work is EXCELLENT. We had a backdrop for our sweetheart table that was beautiful, an archway for the ballroom entrance, lanterns above the dance floor, and balloons to decorate the cocktail hour and cookie table. We were completely thrilled with how everything turned out! We would HIGHLY recommend Illume for your wedding or event!
Chris totally transformed our church hall (almost like a cafeteria) into a soft romantic space that truly set the tone. He was awesome to work with – he met with us in the hall twice and developed a creative vision – an airwall to cut off the empty space and make an inviting entrance; another airwall to hide the kitchen pass-through & door and ugly switches, etc.; a starburst ceiling with fairy lights He was very sensitive to our budget and really worked with us. The setup was meticulous, too – they made the draping fall just right. The room was breathtaking, no one could believe the transformation. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.
Chris from Illume was great to work with on our daughter’s wedding. We did not need a lot of lighting because our reception venue had a lot of natural light, but we were trying to achieve an Italian garden wedding under the stars and that is exactly what we got! It was amazing! Chris had run strings of twinkle lights over the dance floor and it looked like a sky filled with stars. He also added uplighting to some columns between the windows and bistro lighting out on the patio, which gave the whole thing a very romantic Italian feel. Not too much–just the right amount of lighting. It looked really pretty as the sun was setting, and then the lighting just got more beautiful the darker it got outside. We were extremely happy with it and with Illume. Chris really understood what we were trying to achieve and he totally nailed it! Highly recommend!
