Enhance Your Wedding Up Lighting
Uplighting is the art of painting with light to create a truly magical background for the most beautiful and well planned days of your lives together as a couple. Wedding up lighting.
Uplighting brings your wedding to life; dresses, flowers, and the room will all collaborate to create an inviting entertaining space.
The secret lies in the type of lighting, where to place the light, and using it to enhance and boost the already beautiful aspects of your wedding.
Lights are placed on the ground facing the wall or the element of the room you would like to illuminate. Depending on the effect, whether you want a focused beam of light, a diffuse spread of color, “a touch of blue,” or lighting entire walls, one of our lighting experts will pick the appropriate lights for the job.
Most clients want to add color to their room or recreate an effect they’ve seen in a magazine but aren’t sure where to start or how to go about it. If you can provide us with pictures of the result you are looking for, we can help put together a package to meet your needs and brainstorm all the possibilities that fit within your vision and price range.
We use LED lighting almost exclusively for events. We provide uplighting. These are the safest and most environmentally friendly lighting options because there are no bulbs to burn out or replace and lights draw very little energy.
Types of Lighting Fixtures
LEDs or Light Emitting Diodes are the latest in event lighting. They emit virtually no heat, have very saturated and deep colors, and are easy to customize and control how the light looks. They can recreate just about any color that a TV can.
These lights are made up of red, green, and blue individual LEDs that blend to create just about any color when combined in different intensities. These lights are also very lightweight, enabling them to be used on stands, on the floor just about anywhere. For almost all events we light, we use LEDs for Uplighting.
Traditional PAR Cans
Traditionally the industry has used stage lights or “PAR Cans” to uplight weddings. These are bright white lights with a “gel’ or colored plastic film placed over the light. Unfortunately, these lights are limited to one color and get scorching. If there are children or there isn’t enough room to put these lights on, guests can burn themselves. These lights also draw energy and quickly heat small spaces.
Just understanding what is possible with uplighting is helpful. Here are some primary effects that are achievable with up lighting
Washes of Color
The most popular effect is to provide splashes of color or colors around the room. They can either be set to a static color or fade through colors at varying speeds.
You may want a static color as guests arrive and through dinner, but the lights slowly sink through the dancing portion of the evening.
A focused beam of color or light on certain aspects of the room may be requested. For example, having beams of light add more focus to the cake or drama to columns or dimensions of the space may be a good fit. Focused beams of light to the room’s exits and entrances may be a subtle detail.
LEDs can slowly fade into some colors, quickly change colors, strobe, or switch to the beat of the music. Each of these effects may be nice for dancing. In addition, we can operate and program preset effects ahead of time with the controller, so the lighting will be exactly what you expect.
This effect can look great with a bar or the head table. Having white linens surrounding the table and placing a light or lights on the table can add washes of color to the physical table in the room and make it look elegant.
Maybe you would like to add touches of colored light to each of the guest’s tables. With LED lighting, we can raise the lights and project colored light onto your guest’s tables. This can be nice to create a lounge atmosphere or feel of the room.
Lighting up the exit of the room or venue can be a beautiful effect for the photos at night time. If you have a sparkler exit, have a unique hotel, or would like to set the mood on the outside and inside of the venue, placing LED lighting outside can be a theatrical effect.
When coming up with a budget for your wedding, think about lighting. For a fraction of the cost of extra flowers, favors, or other decorations, you can add the elegance and impact of painting with light to your wedding. Lighting works well during the entire event and allows your flowers and other decorations to shine later in the evening. When it’s dark for the reception, guests always notice the lighting, continually thank us, and comment on how much it adds to their event. It looks great in the photos as well, turning ordinary candid dancing into the beautiful event that your wedding deserves to be.
