This is the first in a series of articles featuring some of the greatest locations in the Quad Cities where we have worked over the years. Our first venue is the amazing Waterfront Convention Center located on State Street in Bettendorf Iowa. The Waterfront Center is a big venue, capable of hosting banquet events for up to 650 guests in a wedding setting. The room is very nearly acoustically perfect and has some bold architectural texture that looks great with up-lighting.
Here are some of our favorite photos from past events at the Waterfront:
Red and white uplighting highlighting the main banquet room entrance at the Waterfront Convention Center. The room has a lot of architectural features with texture that are further accentuated with the up-lighting.
For this wedding the dance floor was exactly in the center of the room. Barely noticeable on the stage is one of our BOSE speakers which are very effective at filling the room with amazing and crystal clear sound. This room was designed by Tamara Wendt Design, who supplied the crystals and the teal up-lighting.
Purple, Purple, Purple! Brooke and Ben’s wedding featured the color purple, for which we supplied lots of high powered purple uplighting which bathed the Waterfront Convention Center in the luxurious color!

Another shot of the Sugar Plum Ball. The Waterfront Convention Center features lots of room to dance, which is a good thing, because this crowd always packs the dance floor!
For this peacock themed wedding at the Waterfront Convention Center we furnished uplighting to accent the peacock colors that were found throughout the room.
Nothing beats a fall wedding at the Waterfront Convention Center. To go with the couples’ theme we provided high powered yellow and orange uplighting.
At this wedding reception in the Waterfront Center we installed programmable uplighting, allowing us to change the color theme throughout the night. It made for quite a party!
