Uplighting for Weddings
Enhance Your Wedding
Uplighting allows you to paint with light to create a magical background for one of the most beautiful and well planned days of your lives together as a couple.
Wedding uplighting will bring your reception to life creating an inviting and entertaining space.
We will help you pick the perfect type of lighting, where to place the lighting, and use it to enhance and boost the already beautiful aspects of your wedding.
How Uplighting Works
Lights are placed on the ground facing the wall or the element of the room you would like to illuminate. Depending on the effect whether you want a focused beam of light, a diffuse spread of color, “a touch of blue” or lighting entire walls, we will help you pick the appropriate lights for the job.
Most of our clients want to add color to their room, or recreate an effect they’ve seen in a magazine but aren’t sure where to start or how to go about it. If you can provide us pictures of the effect that you are looking for we can help put together a package to meet your needs and brainstorm all the possibilities that fit within your vision and price range.
We use LED lighting almost exclusively for events we provide uplighting. These are the safest and most environmentally friendly lighting options because there are no bulbs to burn out or replace and lights draw very little energy and do not run as hot as typical lighting.
Just understanding what is possible with uplighting is helpful. Here are some basic effects that are achievable with uplighting
Uplighting can work great as an accent lighting piece to provide that one extra step to make a centerpiece of your reception stand out even more.
Washes of Color
The most popular effect is to provide washes of color or colors around the room. They can either be set to a static color or fade through colors at varying speeds.
You may want a static color as guests arrive and through dinner but the lights to slowly fade through the dancing portion of the evening.
Under Table Lighting
This effect can look really great with a bar or the head table. Having white linens surrounding the table and placing a light or lights inside the table can add washes of color to the physical table in the room and look really neat.
Lighting up the exit of the room or venue can be a nice effect for the photos at night time. If you are having a sparkler exit, have a really unique hotel, or otherwise would like to set the mood on the outside of the venue as well as the inside, placing LED lighting outside can be a very dramatic effect.
Lighting In The Big Picture
When coming up with a budget for your wedding think about lighting. For a fraction of the cost of extra flowers, favors, or other types of decorations you can add the elegance and impact of painting with light to your wedding. Lighting not only works well during the entire event but it allows your flowers and other decorations to shine later on in the evening. When you incorporate lighting into your event it allows you to customize the ambience of your venue exactly how you would like it. We have had guests on many occasions tell us how much the lighting contributed to the overall feel of the event they were attending.
