Lighting is the most underused tool when it comes to events but we know how to do it right! We provide state-of-the-art custom lighting packages including customizable monogramming and slideshow options, and photo and video projection options to make your very special day even more memorable.
Lighting can be colorful or white, static or dynamic, focused or fill a room. And it can serve a host of purposes, such as setting the mood and creating a distinct atmosphere, highlighting event features and culinary displays as well as during speakers and presentations.
Here are some of our favorite lighting ideas for events!
Uplighting can add depth and visual interest to any meeting space. Consider using colored uplighting that plays into the event’s theme.
Highlight a beverage display, like our Atrium Sports Bar, by placing it on LED glass. The lighting draws attention to the display and gives it a unique look.
Lighting doesn’t have to be static. Using gobos (precut etched patterns made from glass or metal), you can project dynamic lighting onto the walls of the space to add visual excitement and movement to a celebratory or social gathering.
Use a gobo to display the company or event logo. Putting it in lights is a dramatic way to keep the brand top-of-mind throughout the event.
Shift attendees’ focus to speakers or guests of honor with spotlighting. Spotlights also can be used to light stages, runways, and aisles.
Believe it or not, for the overall effect that it provides, the cost is actually minimal. You can take a bare room and turn it from drab to fab with the flip of a switch. Whether you’re looking to drastically alter the mood of an event or just highlight certain aspects of it, lighting is the way to go.
The best thing about uplighting or pin spotting? The endless color choices and combinations to choose from. From neutral flushes all the way to hot pink or lime green – there is something to fit any theme. Add designs into the mix or a custom monogramming and you’ll be amazed at just how good the space looks!
A lot of our clients opt for less expensive centerpieces and focus more on the lighting, which saturates the linens and makes the entire room glow!
