Deborah and her team are a one of a kind, amazingly talented company - hire them immediately. From start to finish, working with Deborah was so much fun -- she saw a vision for our day and it was spot on. What she created for us was a sophisticated and intimate ceremony/dining room space that totally wowed us and our guests. The dancing was in a separate section of the venue and in there, using lighting, Deborah created a really fun space for our guests to let loose and dance.

It was beyond perfect and we are so grateful with how beautiful Deborah made our day! She went above and beyond and we can't recommend her enough!

AOI did the lighting, glow bar, and lounge furniture for our loft wedding. We were very happy with their service! Deborah is such a kind lady.

I did notice that the glow bar that was there on the wedding day was not the one that they showed us. It had a completely different shape. Also, we didn't ask for a monogram on the glow bar but, they put one on there that didn't match with the rest of the decor. Guests actually liked the monogram but, if there was gonna be one on there I wish I would've been informed. I actually don't like monograms on bars. If you're into really into design details like me, that might be something you want to keep in mind.

I would also have to mention that AOI does not quickly respond to emails. This can be a problem when you need answers right away while wedding planning. Other than that, I would recommend AOI. They're a talented company with reasonable prices.

Art of Imagination was the preferred vendor for lighting and draping at my venue. I wanted it all, but a lot of it was out of my budget. Deborah, was amazing and she worked with me to give me what she could within my budget and it turned out absolutely beautiful. I wouldn't have changed anything about it! Thank you!

Art of Imagination provided the most beautiful drapes for our wedding venue. They were a little on the pricey side, but the drapes made such a dramatic difference, I'm so happy I used them!

Deborah and her team are great. They transformed the patio at Rivers Restaurant into a beautiful ceremony space. My wedding day was windier than anticipated, causing our drapes to blow and move unexpectedly, but Deborah and her entire staff held up the backdrop throughout the duration of the ceremony to ensure everything went as planned. She was easy to work with and did not try to oversell me on extras that weren't needed. My only advice would be that brides/party planners should use examples from her past events to visually have an idea of the final product. Many times we envision something in our head and although it sounds like everyone is on one accord, something might not translate. I would definitely work with AOI in the future.

The lighting and decorations that Art of Imagination provided were exactly what I was looking for. When I had my initial meeting with Art of Imagination I didn't know how to articulate the vision for my wedding I had. But after talking to them, about the venue (which they were very familiar with) and my ideas, they came up with a design. On the day of the wedding the lighting was perfect and the decorations were even better then I imagined!

Our reception was in the courtyard of a 19th-century mansion, so an extensive amount of extra lighting was a necessity. We added LED uplighting to the standard package, to highlight the architecture of our venue, to great effect. As a whole, the lighting absolutely transformed our outdoor space, and made for a magical evening!

We had our wedding at the Rookery this spring and Deborah's team draped the whole place. Everything looked gorgeous and we're still getting complements on how beautiful the event turned out.

My main issue was the lack of professionalism leading up to the event - we had problems booking with them and the assistant was very unresponsive. As the wedding neared, I never received a phone call or follow-up about their "new fabrics" (as Deborah mentioned were coming out in Jan 2015). This vendor was not my main priority so I didn't press them, but I was disappointed with their communication throughout the planning process.

Deborah, the owner, is great. She provided beautiful drapes and wonderful lighting for our reception (softly 1920s themed) at the Stan Mansion. She didn't try to sell us decorative elements that we didn't want. We told her our budget and she gave us the best features for the money we had to spend. It was all glam.

I loved the results of Art of Imagination's decor at my wedding. They have a ton of options for adding extra decor to a wedding venue. We were on a tight budget. The services weren't inexpensive, but Deborah and her staff were very flexible and came up with a proposal that worked with our budget. The end result was amazing. I walked into our venue and couldn't believe how they had transformed it. It was worth every penny!
