Chris from ILLUME did specialized lighting and drapery for our wedding in June 2019. He created this beautiful bistro lighting to replace the ugly industrial looking lights in our space, as well as this amazing drapery that divided our room in two for ceremony and reception. I could not BELIEVE how spectacular the drapery looked for how little it cost! I was envisioning this little room divider, but it was a whole floor to ceiling luxe extravaganza! Also helped us hang a customized neon sign I had made. Highest recommendation!
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!
