Amie & Kyle 08.29.09 Hilton

Amie and Kyle’s reception was held in the Chief Illiniwek Ballroom at the Hilton in Champaign. They used the entire room for their 220 guests. This is what their guests saw as they walked in the room..


They had their head table in the center of the room with a backdrop behind it and their cake in front of it. We put their monogram on the center of the dance floor. Our DJ equipment was set up to the left of the head table. They also went with color changing up-lighting. We started out with an amber up-lighting to keep it more formal and elegant at the beginning, and then changed the colors for dancing later on in the night. It was a lot of fun!


For their bridal party introduction, they walked in to the U of I war chant and fight song, and we changed the up-lighting to orange.


Their colors were black, ivory, and gold. They went with neutral linens and flowers and chose to get the pop of color from the up-lighting. We did ivory polyester floor-length tablecloths, ivory polyester chair covers, and black satin sashes. Mark Romine did their photography, and I believe English Hedgerow did their centerpieces.
