Color Transformation

Chez is so easily transformed with colored lighting and lighting pattern. The white brick walls, columns, and ceiling are a blank canvas waiting to be saturated with color to fit the theme of any event. We’ve seen cool blue and purple tones and warmer tones of red, pink, and amber. Clients often select a color to match their company logo or party theme. Chez is connected to a team of talented industry vendors who can easily transform the space to create your event vision.

Melanie & Richard’s Parisian-Themed Chez Wedding

In mid-December last year, Melanie and Richard were joined by family and friends for a spectacular, Parisian-themed wedding celebration at Chez. The team from Kehoe Designs started transforming the space early in the day by suspending ornate crystal and gold chandeliers in front of a 17′ tall chuppah.  The layers of detail continued from there – gold-rimmed glassware, beaded chargers, and vintage china over soft blue linens, delicate draping, mirrored tables, soft white floral arrangements, and gold candelabras. Working with a highly curated team of Chicago wedding vendors, namely Kehoe Designs, LK Events, Entertaining Company, and Elysia Root Cakes, ensured that every single detail was executed with perfection.

After a beautiful ceremony, the couple had some quiet time in the Chez private suite while guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails by Entertaining Company. As guests were seated for dinner, they found the menu presented in the format of an origami fortune teller at the center of their place setting. Dinner was served on colorful, vintage chinaware. Post dinner and speeches, the bride and groom danced with their guests to music by the Bluewater Kings Band and enjoyed a late night treat of French hot chocolate before heading out to the cool December air. Congratulations Melanie and Richard.
