Wedding Reception Event Lighting And Up-lighting (Uplighting) Ideas
I Am Looking For Uplighting At My Wedding Reception
This is the era of TV Wedding planning shows – Platinum Weddings, My Fair Wedding, Say Yes To The Dress, and Four Weddings. There are so many great wedding planning ideas that are presented. One of the biggest wedding trends for 2010 is the use of lighting at your reception.
You can turn an otherwise boring reception hall into an amazing display of light and color to help accentuate your wedding color scheme. You can make your wedding color pallet come to life. Having Red Flowers? Use the complimentary color – green or light green on the walls to make them pop. Bridesmaids’ dresses are eggplant? Use a lighter lavender on the wall to give them more of a 3rd dimension as the bridal party enters. Ugly wall in your facility? You can paint the wall any color you like with up-lighting
Wedding event lighting can also take the form of texture lighting. Custom light patterns or gobos can be made to mimic your cake design, invitation pattern, or to give character to an otherwise boring space. Maybe you want to project stars on the ceiling of your wedding reception venue? With a few theatrical projection lighting fixtures, high output LED uplights or par can event lights, you can transform a low-end facility into a high-end-looking wedding venue.
There are many wedding reception lighting ideas that we can talk about. Using a custom gobo light pattern or “your name in lights”, you can personalize your wedding with your initials, name or wedding date. You can dress up your wedding cake by focusing a wedding gobo on the wall. You can place your name in lights on the dance floor or wall above your head table
You can highlight architectural features with event lighting using LED up-lighting fixtures or conventional par cans as your uplights. Using event lighting at your wedding, you can make columns stand out, fireplaces come alive, lounge areas take on a new feel, dead space becomes artwork, your wedding cake is backlit. Lighting can completely transform your wedding reception.
“Rob Alberti was fantastic from the first email sent to the day of the wedding. He was incredibly detail oriented which made the big day run as smoothly as possible. He coordinated with the String Trio we hired for the ceremony and cocktail hour, our wedding planner at the venue, and the caterer to deliver a seamless day. We hired a drag queen to perform at our wedding and he didn’t miss a beat setting her up with her entry and song choices. We met prior to the wedding to discuss songs choices and he couldn’t have done a better job making both of us happy! The guests had a blast dancing the night away. If you want a true professional who will give you EXACTLY what you want, hire Rob Alberti!”Jack

“Rob Alberti’s DJ, Custom Lighting Design & Photo Booth worked my sister’s wedding many year ago and blew our minds with how fantastic they were. So we most definitely had to hire them for mine and they went above and beyond what we could’ve even dreamed of. DJ Justin from Rob Alberti’s DJ Custom Lighting Design & Photo Booth was more than Victor and I could have ever asked for. He was keen to every detail given to him, Punctual throughout the wedding reception, and kept the positive momentum going throughout the night. He made planning easy and organized and most importantly, stress free. He was accommodating and patient the whole time and open to many requests due to guests needs! He most certainly made our night a night to remember forever.”Mary

“Rob and his team were so easy to work with and I am so happy I found them at the last minute. We had been recommended multiple lighting companies and Rob’s felt the most natural. We even had a change in tent size the day before and he made it happen. The bistro lighting in the tent and under the barn were so beautiful and exactly what I wanted :)”Briann
