Tell me a little bit about your business!
ILLUME Lighting + Event Design is a family-owned company that was born out of a passion for design and decorating. We love to bring together lighting, draping, decor, faux florals, and custom fabrication services to create truly unique experiences for each of our clients.
Our team consists of specialists from technical, fabrication, and management backgrounds all coming together to produce your event. Each member has an important role in making sure the project is completed on time with precision and detail.
What makes your work unique?
At ILLUME, we’re committed to providing the highest quality of service. We don’t just sell you a product and walk away; we get involved in your vision from the beginning, and we work with you every step of the way.
We’re not afraid to take on any client, because we know that every event is different – and that every client has different needs. That’s why our team is so passionate about creating truly customized designs that match your vision, theme, and venue. We don’t pitch ideas for generic events; instead, we produce a design that matches your vision exactly.
Most of our draping, structures, signage, and other visual elements are fabricated in-house by our team to the specifications of the client. Our background in large-scale productions and events gives us an edge on installation techniques and site management services that set us apart from other companies in our industry.
What is your ideal client like?
We like working with creatively-minded clients that are not afraid to think outside the box. A client who is looking for something new to make their wedding unique, who understands the creative process, and who is willing to communicate openly about their dream wedding. We want to be able to share your excitement and help you create a day that will stand out in your memory forever!
How do you work with couples to bring their wedding lighting or draping dreams to life?
A lot of communication and collaboration with the couple and the rest of their vendor team. We discuss the wedding details as often as necessary to ensure we understand the couple’s vision and the part we play in bringing it to fruition.
We provide visual representations such as samples, pictures, and drawings of the design concept to help our clients understand our proposal. We also invite our clients to visit our showroom to finalize the design details in person, which is especially helpful if they have trouble visualizing what something will look like. Our team is upfront and honest, offering recommendations and advice to ensure that their dream wedding is produced on time and within budget.
