Many things are made in China, but I’m particularly fond of their lanterns….

Take a look at these pictures and you’ll see why.

Red and Purple Lanterns at Venuti's

Last weekend MDM Entertainment had the pleasure of providing special event lighting for a wedding at Venuti’s in Addison.  Alicia’s vision for her wedding reception decor included the whimsical addition of Chinese lanterns.

When you think of specialty lighting for weddings you would typically think of monogram lights, uplights or pinspots, so Alicia’s lanterns were an enlivening twist on the norm.  The red and purple glowing orbs suspended above the dance floor charmed guests as they entered the grand ballroom.  Lanterns were featured on the cover of an edition of Martha Stewart Weddings and trendsetting brides are now using the decorative element to add a bit more festiveness to their reception’s atmosphere.

The lanterns tied in the color themes of the day and complimented the floral centerpieces that alternated in reds and purples.  Many times in wedding decorating the wedding colors are focused on what is on the tabletops, such as the color of the flowers in the centerpieces or a custom color linen.  Special event lighting, like the lanterns, uplights or color washes, is a great way to incorporate color on a larger scale.

Many Chicagoland weddings are held in reception spaces that can be greatly enhanced with the visual effects of specialty lighting.  Alicia achieved the ambiance she desired with the lanterns and MDM Entertainment would be happy to help you create your custom lighting scheme at your Chicagoland wedding!
