We are SO excited that you visited our site because big things are happening. I mean, huge things are happening. Wedding season is about to kick off!!!

Before we talk about all the exciting things we have lined up this year, we should first introduce ourselves – we are ILLUME Lighting + Event Design, and we are here to make your event magical and unique! Our team is here to guide you through the design process and create the PERFECT atmosphere for you and your guests.

If you stumbled across our blog and you have not visited our website (first off, check it out – I promise you will not regret it), here is our mission:

"ILLUME Lighting + Event Design is an event design and production company specializing in lighting, draping, decor, and live production services. We comprise a team with backgrounds ranging from live production to corporations all coming together to produce your event. Though we call Pittsburgh home, we proudly design for clients anywhere their event may call home including nationwide and international destinations."

Sounds awesome, right? We think so – we love building relationships with our clients and doing whatever we can to make their event perfect.

Who We Are

When you reach out to us, you will hear from one of two people – the first being our fearless leader and designer extraordinaire, Chris Ubinger. I am telling you, there is nothing that his guy will not try to pull off for an event. Chris has over 15 years of experience in event lighting and design. He has designed TONS of events around the area, partnering with various organization to provide lighting for some of their big events. Chris spent a good bit of time on the road with touring productions – but he decided that it was time to bring those skills back home to Pittsburgh!  All the work that ILLUME has done is a combination of a client’s vision and Chris’s creativity.

Then there is me, I am Kristin Maher, the Production Manager here at ILLUME. Most often when you call, you will get to talk to me! I got involved in the industry when I met Chris about four years ago. My training is in Human Resources, but my passion is in helping our clients design their dream events. I am a perfectionist with my work, and I specialize in the drapery – so I can promise you that if I am doing a head table backdrop for you, it will be perfectly symmetrical and it will take your breath away!

We will update this blog on the regular, so stop back again soon to check out what we are up to! We will feature each event we design this year so you DEFINITELY do not want to miss out. If you are interested in working with us, send us a message!  Call us! We would love to hear from you!

Until next time…
