Wedding Reception Lighting Experts
More Than DJs - We Are Event Experts
We had an event this past weekend that was extremely beautiful. The couple originally came to us just for our MC / DJ entertainment. We've been in the wedding entertainment business in Northeast Ohio for over 20 years so...the word is out! What made this meeting different is that the clients did not know we also offer quite a few lighting options for receptions. The problem was, they never budgeted for event lighting. They really never took it into consideration.
They did, however, fall in love with the photos of events we have produced as well as our lighting demonstration room. Once they saw what was possible with our uprights, gobo monograms, feature lighting, pinspots, and lighting design...they knew they needed it. What makes us true experts is that we never create the same look multiple events. Everything we design is custom to the specific needs of our clients. Because lighting was not budgeted, we had a challenge.
Our solution was to create dynamic looks in specific high traffic areas as opposed to spreading out too few lights. If your budget does not allow for the room to be completely washed in light, make sure you focus on these areas:
- Head Table / Sweetheart Table
- Dance Floor
- Cake Table
A strategy we've used is to make sure the cake table is on the dance floor before dancing begins for the ceremonial cutting of the cake. If you place the cake there with the DJ / MC on one end and the head table or sweetheart table on the other end there are a lot of great possibilities. For instance, we could make sure there is a dramatic pinspot light focused on the cake, a gobo monogram behind your head table, while still having a very well lit and exciting dance floor setup.
The possibilities are endless but we want to make sure you realize that we work with your budgets in a way that makes your reception look as beautiful as you envision. Here are a few example of lighting looks that we've worked on with our clients.
