Custom Monogram Gobo

Custom monogram gobo

Your wedding is your day to be a star, so why not put your name in lights? Using a special fixture coupled with a custom made gobo MDM Entertainment can project your names, monogram, wedding date and/or design elements onto a wall or the dance floor. This will add a personal touch to the décor of the day and can be customized to match design elements from your stationery, invitations or the graphic on the bottom of your photo booth strips.

Intelligent Lighting

Intelligent "Nightclub Style" Lighting

Intelligent dance floor lighting takes DJ lighting to a whole new level, giving your event the look and feel of a nightclub or concert. The only limitation of intelligent lighting is your imagination! With the use of a special controller, your lighting technician controls the patterns, speed, color and other functionality of the light fixtures. The colors are brighter, more vivid, and offer more combinations than ordinary lighting. Intelligent lighting also gives you the ability to spotlight your special moments and add a real “wow factor” to your event.

Room Uplighting

Chicago wedding uplighting and special event uplighting

Transform your venue from ordinary to extraordinary with uplighting. You’ll have a near limitless color palette to select from with our modern, LED lighting technology. You can create an ambiance of soft candlelit romance with amber uplighting, or decorate your space in festive colors matching your bridesmaid’s dresses, floral blooms, or linens.

The up-light fixtures are placed strategically throughout the room to create brilliant columns of light that beam up the wall or architectural fixtures. Up-lights are a dazzling way to tie together your design and décor elements.

MDM Entertainment’s LED up-lights are far superior to traditional up-lights used by many other companies.

  • Our LED fixtures consume far less power than the old-fashioned par cans. Many times our lighting can be run off of a single electrical outlet. This is very important in venues with limited power supply.
  • Traditional uplighting fixtures can become very hot and pose a serious risk of burns, especially to small children who like to touch the lights. Our lights remain cool to the touch throughout the entire event.
  • Our lights are “intelligent” and can be programmed to produce millions of colors from a single unit and can be controlled to vary color, intensity, speed of color fade, etc throughout the course of an event.
For more information about uplighting for your event call or contact us today, 773.253.4986.

Color Wash

Color wash and pattern projection.

Picture your event space completely illuminated with color. LED fixtures will bathe your dance floor, ceiling or any selected area in your choice of color. One color wash light will cover an approximately 25’ by 25’ area. By comparison, up-lights make focused columns of light that travels up the wall.

For more information about color wash lighting call or contact us today, 773.253.4986.

Pin Spots

Pin Spot Lighting

A pin spot is like a miniature spot-light focused on your centerpiece, wedding cake or other design element in your room. When your room lights are dimmed, the effect is magnificent and appears to make the target “pop”. Most often seen on centerpieces -whether elaborate or simple- a pin spot on your floral arrangements makes a dramatic statement.

For more information about pin spot lighting call or contact us today, 773.253.4986.

Fabric Backdrops

Uplit backdrop for a wedding reception

Fabric backdrops can be used to create an attractive focal point behind the head table. MDM Entertainment offers backdrops with drapery tiebacks and swagging to provide added drama and look fancier than most backdrops. Backdrops can make substantial improvements in the appearance of a room by covering unsightly room features such as doors or air wall panels. Since you will spend many hours of your wedding reception at the head table, a large portion of your pictures will showcase what is directly behind you (think toasts and speeches), a fabric backdrop can make a world of difference!

For more information about fabric backdrops call or contact us today, 773.253.4986.

Laser Starfield Projector

Hanging paper lanterns at a Chicago wedding

Create a more casual atmosphere with Lanterns, a marvelous way to enliven your event décor. The orb shaped lanterns come in an array of sizes and colors to coordinate with your event theme. Your lanterns will be suspended from the ceiling and set aglow with an LED light. A jubilant atmosphere is achieved using varied sizes and colors.
