The best events are always well-lighted events. Uplighting provides a stunningly elegant effect that will enhance practically any reception hall or event center. When your guests enter into the room for your event, visual will play the biggest role in setting the proper tone (or ambiance) over any of the person's senses. It creates an initial impression and, when done properly, it raises the expectations of guests which is key to a successful event. When your guests come in, impressed and expecting a good time, it makes the entire night flow smoother.
Uplighting is useful for adding color and warmth to walls and other architectural structures in your venue. Fixtures are placed close to the area to be illuminated, with the beam shooting straight up. This technique paints a beautiful column of color and light against the space, making it stand out for both photography and videography (i.e. you get better pictures). We use LED par can fixtures exclusively (these won't burn curious children) and generally place them against the wall baseboards, aiming up along the wall. Our lighting system is fully-intelligent, with wireless control and battery power. They can be programmed to gently roll between colors or to stay on a single, static color or sometimes we might alternate between two different colors (one color, one white for example), depending on the feel that the client is after. These are used to accentuate wall space and room architecture and can be dramatic or sub-dued (sparse). Here are some examples from some of our past events.
LIGHTED MONOGRAM (GOBO)
A Monogram/Gobo projector is mostly used to project a monogram or phrase onto either a ceiling, wall, or dance floor. It can be as simple as a single-letter monogram or as elaborate as a full-color photo. Dance floor projection is most common but we can place wherever you choose, such as a wall behind the head table, fireplace or ceiling. The only limit is your imagination.
Cake spotlights, also known as "Pin-Spotting" is used to highlight specific items such as the wedding cakes, ice sculptures, candy tables, table centerpieces, etc. Photographers especially love this as it makes the shot "jump off the page".
These are a stunning addition to any table setup. We supply uplighting pedestals for your centerpiece. For best results, we generally recommend you to use a glass vase with glass stones in the bottom (to let the light pass through). Super gorgeous.
