I absolutely love tent weddings! There is something particularly elegant about the all white interior that really moves me. This blog will give you a few ideas for lighting for Chicago tent weddings.

From a design prospective a tent gives you a completely blank canvas to work with to create the perfect mood for your wedding or special event. A good designer can do so many things with lighting not only to set the mood but also to enhance the décor and create a visually stunning atmosphere for your guests. They can also tie all the elements of your décor together by utilizing lighting elements that correspond with your theme.

Depending on the time of year and the location you may be able to open the sides up to view a magnificent garden or allow your guests access to an outside patio. Galleria Marchetti in Chicago has a gorgeous garden and patio area that is a perfect example. This is one of my favorite Chicago wedding venues.
