Innovative designers and great service
Illume did a fantastic job creating a sizeable and visually stunning hanging curtain display that served as the altar at our wedding venue. We provided a photo of the idea, and Illume did the rest! Their service and attention to detail were both right up there. - Keith G.Sent on 09/27/2019

Was so easy to work with!
We had heard a lot of great things about Chris and his decorations from our vendor coordinator, and he definitely lived up to the hype! He gave great advice on our phone consultation on what he thought would work well, and gave us options for us to choose from. His invoicing and contracts were all online and super easy to do, and made it very clear what each party’s obligations were.
About a month before, Chris checked in to make sure we wanted to change anything up before the event or had any questions, which was great to make sure we had what we needed.
We wanted our lighting to make the venue seem smaller and more intimate, and it did exactly that. We were really pleased with how it turned out, and got loads of compliments on the set up. It looked great! The best thing a vendor could do for us is give us the feeling we had nothing to worry about leading up to and on our wedding day. Chris did exactly that. Thank you!

Illume made our wedding a dream come true!
Chris and his team at Illume provided a variety of services for my wedding including ceiling drapery, a backdrop for our head tables, drapery for our ceremony structure, illuminated monogram, uplighting, pin spot lighting, etc., all of which made the ballroom absolutely breathtaking. It felt like we were walking into a fairy tale! Chris was so responsive and easy to work with during the whole process. He has great ideas and really works to ensure every design is unique. He even took the time to meet with us at our venue a few months before the wedding to make sure we were all on the same page and to relieve any stress that comes with planning such an event! We couldn't have been happier and our guests are still talking about how beautiful everything was! Thank you Illume!Sent on 10/04/2019

If you're looking for lighting, then go no further - CRU Design is the place to go! Owner, Chris Ubinger is awesome to work with and I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again in the very near future! Not only does he know his stuff, but he is genuinely a very nice person, who cares about his clients needs and goes above and beyond to make them happy. I would highly recommend CRU Design for all your lighting needs. Karen Nottingham Owner/Wedding Coordinator Fab Affairs, LLC
