Last week MDM Entertainment provided wedding lighting at Room 1520, a great new event space in Chicago.  When the client first described the space to us we were excited to work there as it sounded amazing. We were not disappointed.

As lighting designers we are ecstatic anytime we are given a blank canvas to work with and 1520 is just that. With it’s contemporary design and solid white walls, ceilings and columns throughout the room the space can be transformed into almost anything with a little lighting.

This particular wedding was going for an “urban nature” feel and the client already had a good idea of some of the things he wanted to do with lighting to transform the space.

We used amber uplights throughout the room to give a warm, natural feel.

In the  entryway we projected branch patterns onto the entire wall to grab the guest’s attention as they entered the building and set the theme for the wedding reception.

To highlight the dance floor we projected another style of branch patterns.

The space looked fantastic after the transformation. Thanks to the staff at  1520 for all their help and Style Matter DJ’s for providing the entertainment.
