If you're looking for lighting products that really enhance the design of your wedding or other special event, the best way to do that is to spotlight certain elements. Your centerpieces, your card table, the cake table, etc. will all benefit from a little accent lighting. But it's important to get the right light for the right area. The key is to make sure you tell us what it is we're lighting, and how big it is.
This is a popular style of floral centerpiece. We use one of our traditional pinspot lights, which as a very narrow beam, so that the light doesn't extend where it isn't wanted. Also in the background are LED uplights and a gobo of the Chicago skyline. The floral design for this wedding was done by Flowers By Jazz.
Here are three tall centerpieces clustered together. To provide a more even light across all three pieces, we used a specialty fixture which has a wider beam than a standard pinspot, and it also allowed us to frame the light to the centerpieces so that the light isn't spilling where it isn't needed. This New Year's wedding also had strings of lights over the dance floor, and uplights, along with many other details. This wedidng is at the ornate, W Hotel City Center in Chicago.
Planning a larger piece? This is a champagne ice sculpture that stood over 8' tall. Ice sculptures require special care in lighting, so they don't melt too fast, and so the light doesn't pass through where it shouldn't. This impressive piece was made by Nadeau's Ice Sculptures.
Special thanks to TVK Orchestra for keeping the crowd jumping, to our friend and colleague, Jessica Pare at the W Hotel City Center, and Moira and Merritt, our fabulous bride and groom!
