Event Lighting at Lewis University Library
As mentioned in a previous blog, MDM Entertainment was chosen to provide event lighting for the 2012 Called To Be Brothers conference held at Lewis University. They had so many cool events we had to write another blog to showcase one of the other lighting designs!
Our staff was hard pressed to pick a favorite event lighting set up between the different evenings because each was so unique and cool in it’s own way. It was a close call for our favorite between the first night’s event in the science building and Wednesday night’s event held in the library.
Here are some before and after photos of the transformation that took place.
The event lighting design for the library included a lot of amber and subtle red uplights to compliment the library’s existing colors and to create an elegant and warm atmosphere.
A gorgeous, classic looking bar was provided along with pipe and drape, table decor and linens by the outstanding Classic Party Rentals.
We used pin spotlights on all of the buffet tables to spotlight the table decor and gorgeous centerpieces provided by Phillip’s Flowers.
The jazz trio (which consisted of professor from the university) were spotlighted in the center of the room and we projected a design onto the stage they performed on to give it a unique visual appeal.
All of the lighting and decor elements came together unbelievably well and transformed an ordinary library into a New Orleans style jazz club. The guests and the entire staff at the library were amazed at how beautiful everything was.
To top everything off the chefs at Lewis prepared an amazing selection of New Orleans inspired appetizers (which they kindly let us sample, thanks!) including veal stuffed mushrooms, blue crab frittatas, steak tenderloin au poiure and alligator po’ boy sandwiches!
Thanks to everyone at Lewis for letting us be a part of your conference and thanks to all of the other vendors for all of their hard work in putting together a series of such successful events!
