What Our Clients Say
Wedding Client

Chris from Illume was great to work with – responsive and flexible. We had string lights over our dance floor and it turned out great, really added an extra sparkle to our reception.

Wedding Client

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!
