Lighting

If there is one thing you must factor into your wedding, it is lighting. If neglected, your wedding will be basic. I hate to be blunt, but someone has to tell you! You want to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for your reception, while highlighting the beautiful décor and detracting from anything else. These days, planners and brides are getting creative with how they add illumination to their ceremony and reception space. To compliment a ritzy ranch theme, try using antique lanterns or rustic chandeliers. For a more elegant affair, think candelabras or crystal chandeliers. With options to accommodate all budgets, additional lighting will take your wedding from nice to WOW.

This space would be just a barn if it were not for the string lights. Too high of a ceiling will make any space feel cold and lost. Whereas adding these string lights of varying bulbs and quantities creates warmth and intimacy. Plus, it’s a budget friendly option!

This outdoor reception is a stunner because of these beautiful lanterns! You don’t notice the simplicity of the tablescape because your eye goes directly to the lighting. With rose petals and simple candlesticks, these lanterns bring more than just illumination to this reception.

This bride opted for gobo lights to help add texture and décor to a stark, cement wall. Gobo lights can project any image onto any surface to compliment your room. By accenting the tables with tall, white centerpieces and warm candles, this room is transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland!
