Amazing!

After having trouble with our initial lighting vendor, Kim at Illumination Designs was our savior! Our wedding was at Commander's Mansion in Watertown, MA, which has a tent on site with minimal lighting included. We contracted for bistro lighting with paper lanterns for inside the tent, and also for lighting over the walkway outside between the tent and the mansion. All communication and planning with Kim happened within a week as we had a short time frame to work with as our other vendor did not work out on short notice. Even with only a couple weeks before the wedding, Kim had availability and perfectly executed on our vision, the tent and walkway were gorgeous and KIm was a pleasure to work with :)

We highly recommend Illumination Designs for any event!

Where do I click for 10 stars???

I contacted Kim with half of my wedding planning done (sort of). I was completely overwhelmed and panicking. She patiently listened to me panic, then she calmed me down and offered me a plan. I knew I was in good hands just by the way she calmly walked through many different scenarios and alleviated my fears.

We met three times (there was no need for more). We talked about my ideas, she offered many great ideas and discussed better ways to do what I wanted financially and effectively. Kim did not hesitate to work with us to adjust the project to our needs and means. We signed a contract right away. After that we communicated a lot over the phone, email and through text messages. She sent me lots of pictures to get a feeling of what I liked and to hone in on what my vision was. The next time I saw her was at my wedding.

Kim decorated the venue I had previously picked, provided uplighting and all the flowers. My wedding was perfect! You know how people say “planning a wedding is very stressful”? I don’t know that stressful feeling. Kim was in control of every detail. She worked with vendors that I had picked before meeting her and if there was any stress in that process, I am unaware of it. She only brought me solutions! I don’t have enough words to provide a more positive recommendation for Kim and the Dream Weddings & Events
by Illumination Designs team. She is attentive, caring and an extremely talented professional. Her designs are far beyond what I could have ever imagined and she brings them together so effortlessly. Kim loves what she does and that shows in the beautiful results of her work! We will be forever indebted to her for helping to make our day as unforgettable as every couple wants their wedding day to be.

Kim and her entire team at DREAM WEDDINGS by Illumination Designs were an absolute pleasure to work with. I had been back and forth for a long time whether or not to include drapery into our main reception hall and under a tented courtyard. After talking to Kim back and forth through email and on the phone, (she was always extremely responsive) I knew that she was going to create our dream for both the reception space and tent. I had sent her a couple pictures of what I had in mind and she out did her self with the final out come. They were very timely, as they were the first vendor on the property setting up. Because of the weather, we ended up getting married in the reception room and I am so happy we had the drapes and eucalyptus ring. It looked absolutely stunning! The eucalyptus ring was actually Kim's idea since we were not having a chandelier, she knew it would match the green wraps under the tent and all of our flowers. A month later, I still have gotten comments on how beautiful everything looked and how all the small details tied together perfectly, and a lot of that was because of Kim's hard work and vision. I couldn't recommend DREAM WEDDINGS by Illumination Designs anymore!

Kim really understood my vision and executed it beautifully without me having to micromanage. I didn't see her at all on the day of my wedding because I was too busy and she transformed the space beautifully! Very easy to work with and great value.
