Lighting is big. No…HUGE when considering the overall design of your wedding space. It’s built into our American minds that when you plan a wedding, flowers are part of the budget. Floral arrangements add both personality and color to your reception space, really centering the overall feel of the room.
Think about how large a floral arrangement is – even smaller than the arrangement are the actual flowers, which are only part of the floral design. Now think about the walls, ceiling and floor in the same space. I would wager that that space is exponentially larger than the flowers.
The impact of one light on the wall has a great “bang-for-buck” impact on the ambience of your wedding reception. Coupled with dozens of uplights, maybe a custom monogram, and some additional lighting design, you can imagine the final result: STUNNING. You know all those bridal magazines and reality shows on TLC that make weddings look so “high-end”? The common theme between all of them is well planned lighting. When done very well, it should ENHANCE your reception, never take away from it.
At Sound Insight Productions, we offer a custom approach to lighting design – as unique as the couple getting married. Here’s two examples from a wedding at the State Botanical Gardens in Athens, GA. I (David Osborne) also was the event host and DJ for the evening.
Thanks to my wife, Rachel Osborne of Rachel Osborne Photography for this detail shot of the Botanical Gardens conservatory.
Thanks to Gene Ho, the official photographer at the wedding, of Gene Ho Photography for this stunning shot of the couple surrounded by our lighting! Gorgeous!
