Lavender Ball Room Wedding Reception

Lighting is an incredibly important element of any event, and weddings are no exception. Changing the color or intensity of the lighting in a room is one of the fastest and easiest ways to establish ambience and mood. With the high-tech, state-of-the-art, intelligent lighting available these days, the possibilities are almost endless as to what can be done to a space. Speak with your event-lighting experts about what you envision your celebration looking like and almost certainly they can make it happen.

Go over-the-top or keep your lighting design relatively simple by incorporating the basics: gobos to add patterns to your dance floor or ceiling, pin spotting to highlight important elements like the cake, and uplighting to add depth and design to plain walls. One thing to remember: make sure your event-lighting team takes the time to hide all of the electrical wiring.

Get inspired by the photographs below, which highlight some amazing spaces that we love, made all the more fabulous with incredible lighting effects.
