All About Lighting
All about lighting
Transform your space
Lighting isn’t just another element added to your wedding decor: it enhances, improves and transforms every other element of the room. With lighting we can enhance architecture, illuminate centerpieces, break up the monotony of plain spaces and even wash the entire room with color to create a modern, elegant appeal.
Set the mood
Most importantly, lighting sets the mood. Simply dimming lights at the appropriate time during the event or changing their colors can create the desired vibe and atmosphere more effectively than expensive centerpieces and fancy tablecloths.
When choosing a color palette for your wedding lighting, it is always better to go with soft, beautiful colors that are flattering to the human complexion (amber, blush pink, peach, etc).
While we love bold colors such as greens and blues, their effect on the visual appearance of skin tones is less desirable, making people’s faces look paler than they actually are.
Your photographer and videographer will also appreciate a well-thought lighting design that will showcase you and your guests in the best possible way. Think about how good you will look on camera!
Most people don’t have just one favorite color, so why not choose multiple colors to uplight your event with? Programmable LED uplighting will make it possible to reinvent your space with color throughout your event, by strategically segwaying colors, you can create the desired atmosphere for each of the important segments of your event creating an added excitement to your event.
1) Your guests uests are welcomed into your ballroom uplit in a golden amber glow. They enjoy dinner with this color, which provides not only a beautiful backdrop but also showcases your guests in a flattering soft light.
2) Once dinner concludes, the room gently transitions to a darker, more intimate color like purple, blue or red. Now you and your guests are ready to head to the dancefloor.
3) As the evening progresses, the lights can begin to gently change between colors of your choice, visually reinventing the room every few minutes enhancing the excitement of the dancefloor and overall celebratory mood.
4) As your evening builds to a crescendo, your programmable uplights and intelligent dancefloor lighting can work together in perfect synergy as they are controlled by a lighting technician who is familiar with the music being played and can anticipate breaks in songs and adapt as things wind down, even bring color changing to a halt to conclude the evening on the same color it began with.
String lights | café lights | market lights | bistro lights
Nothing can create a more intimate atmosphere than string lights or as they are also called café lights, market lights or bistro lights suspended just over your head on a warm Florida night. Not only is it beautiful but it’s completely functional as well, draped over tables and food stations and dancefloors to bring them out of the dark when the sun goes down. What a perfect way to dress up an outdoor courtyard or reinvent your backyard for that party you’ve been planning.
Combining string lights with paper lanterns or hanging crystal arrangements are great options as well.
Paper lanterns are one of the most versatile lighting options for your event. Use white or ivory paper lanterns to add a warm glow to your indoor or outdoor space or make a statement and create a stunning decor element with paper lanterns in bold colors.
Whether you are going for a classic or modern look, paper lanterns can be a beautiful addition to your decor scheme.
Add texture or designs to your space by incorporating pattern projections. Pattern projections or “break ups”, as the industry often calls them, can add another layer of sophistication to your uplit walls, dance floor or ceiling. Patterns can cover certain imperfections of the venue or make a boring space into a well-thought focal point in a room’s design.
A pinspot is a focused beam of light that shines directly onto an object and is a perfect solution to enhance specific items such as bars, centerpieces, signage, guestbooks or anything else you would like to draw attention to.
