    Up lighting brings your wedding to life. Dresses, your flowers, and the room will all work to create an inviting, entertaining space.

    How Up Lighting Works:

    Lights placed on the ground facing the wall or the element of the room that 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 rooms or recreate effects they’ve seen in a magazine but aren’t sure where to start or how to go about it. If you can provide us pictures of the effect that 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 that we provide lighting. These are the safest and most environmentally friendly lighting options because there are no bulbs to burn out or replace, and lights draw little energy.

    Types of lighting fixtures include:

    * LED Lighting

    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 the way 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 when combined with different intensities, blend to create just about any color. These lights are also very lightweight enabling them to be used on stands, on the floor, just about anywhere. Almost all events that we light, we use LEDs for up lighting.

    * Traditional PAR Cans

    Traditionally, the industry has used stage lights or PAR cans” to up light weddings. These are bright, white lights that have a gel or colored plastic film placed over the light. These are limited to one color and get hot. If there are children, or there isn’t enough room to put these lights, guests can burn themselves. These lights also draw a lot of energy and can heat up small rooms quickly.

    * Up Lighting Effects

    Just understanding what is possible with up lighting is helpful.

    Here are some basic 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 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 to slowly fade through the dancing portion of the evening.

    * Beams of Light

    A focused beam of color or light on certain aspects of the room may be requested. Having beams of light to add more focus to the cake or drama to columns or dimensions of the room may be a good fit. Focused beams of light to the exits and entrances of the room may be a beautiful detail.

    * Dance Lighting

    LEDs can slowly fade through some colors, quickly change colors, strobe, or change to the beat of the music. Each of these effects may be nice for dancing. With the controller, we can operate and program preset effects ahead of time, so the lighting will be what you expect.

    * Under Table Lighting

    This effect can look great with a bar The cake table or under the head table. Having white linens surrounding the table and placing a light or lights inside the table can add washes of color to the physical table in the room and looks elegant.

    * Table Lighting

    Maybe you would like to add touches of colored light to each of the guests’ tables. With LED lighting, we can raise the lights and project colored light onto your guests’ tables. To create a lounge atmosphere or feel of the room.

    * Architectural Uplighting

    Lighting up the exit of the room or venue can be a beautiful effect for the photos at night time. Placing LED lighting outside can be a very dramatic effect. If you are having a sparkler exit, have a unique hotel, or otherwise would like to set the mood on the outside of the venue as well as the inside,

    * Lighting In The Big Picture

    When coming up with a budget for your wedding, think about lighting. For a fraction of the cost of extra flowers, favors, or other types of decorations, you can add the elegance and impact of painting with light to your wedding. Lighting not only works well during the entire event, but it allows your flowers and other decorations to shine later on in the evening. When it’s dark for the reception, guests always notice the lighting and continually thank us and comment on how much it adds to their event. It looks great in the photos as well, turning ordinary Candids while dancing into the beautiful event that your wedding deserves.
