Choose Lighting Rental to create a Stunning Wedding Ambience

When done well, lighting can make everything look better, from your wedding cake to your guests. The right kind of illumination will also get those details you spent hours on noticed, create awesome photo-ops (hello, sparklers!) and allow you to spend less on the rest of the décor.


It really is that impactful. We like to think of lighting as the jewelry of a space—just as a certain mix of accessories can make an outfit, the right lights will make your reception unforgettable. Here's the right way to plan your lighting.


Choosing Your Glow

You love candlelight, but the country club has a strict no open-flame policy. Or you want to string hundreds of twinkle lights over your outdoor tables, but a lack of outlets makes that a very expensive idea.


Your lighting must be a match for both your budget and your wedding venue. Before you have your heart set on a specific style of illumination, talk to a lighting designer.

Here are the types of lighting commonly used at weddings.

Pin spot: A focused beam of light that shines directly onto an object, like a centerpiece or wedding cake, as a highlight effect.

Up Lighting: Basically a blanket of colored light covering an entire area to create a mood or change the look of built-in décor.

Gobos: Circular stencils that are put over a light to project a design or pattern onto a wall, ceiling or floor. Monograms, dates and wedding motifs are popular gobo designs.
