How Many Lights Do I Need?

Bottom line: It’s better to have too many then not enough.

Big guest list? Large venue? Separate cocktail hour area? When it comes to the amount to lights to properly fill a room, it all depends on the size of the reception space.

There’s always a place to put an extra light, whether it be in the entrance way, under a sweetheart table, or behind the cake table — that beam of color instantly amplifies that space. So, if you have one or two extra — they’ll never go unused.

Uplighting Option #1: 16 Light Package

  • Perfect for reception rooms that hold less than 200 guests.
  • Save $300 on this package when you have another service booked with us.

Uplighting Option #2: 32 Light Package

  • Recommended for larger venue rooms that hold more than 200 guests.  
  • Save $500 on this package when you have another service booked with us.

Add On Option: Custom GOBO Monogram Template

What the heck is a GOBO template? It’s technical name for a circular stencil that is put over a light to project a design or pattern onto a wall, ceiling or floor and man, is it cool!

  • Wedding date

Our Uplighting Technology

Don’t think adding uplighting to your wedding reception means adding one more thing to worry about on your big day. Our team has you covered and here’s how….

    1. LED Lights. Our LED lights (Par 64 bulbs) use much less electricity than (and don’t get as hot as) regular incandescent light bulbs. LEDs are great for color changes and vibrant hues.
    2. Beam lights. This style allows us to illuminate only the things that need to be seen and keep light off the things you don’t want lit. Beam lights create a dramatic look without competing with other lights or overpowering the room.
    3. Custom Color(s). We can literally create any color of the rainbow for you to display at your wedding. It’s recommended to feature an accent color around the room;
      1. Bridesmaid dress color
      2. Linen accent
      3. Color from floral arrangements ETC.
    4. Individually powered. Each light will have it’s own power source, which dramatically eliminates the chance of it losing power. You’ll never have to worry about a battery going out or tripping over wires that have to extend around the perimeter of the room
    5. Certified Team. We have a team of certified professionals who know how to properly connect and display uplighting. We have an ‘on-call’ system in place to guarantee setup will be on time and efficient.

3 Steps to Building the Ultimate Wedding Package


1. Pick Your Wedding Photographer(s)

Whether you want ultra-creative or classic photos, our professional wedding photographers can deliver whatever kind of aesthetic you’re looking for. Each photographer offers their own unique professional approach to wedding photography, and you can pick the right one for you. The photography is just the start of the ultimate wedding package.

2. Pick Your Wedding Videographer(s)

One of the biggest regrets we hear from the over 25,000 couples we have served is that they didn’t get a professional wedding video made. Don’t let that be your regret! Like our photographers, our videographers can create cinematic wedding videos that spotlight your love. Whatever you’re looking for, our videographers will deliver a wedding video that you’ll be able to enjoy for years and share with future generations.

3. Pick Your Wedding DJ & MC

In order to capture photos and videos of the touching, hilarious and memorable moments at your wedding reception, you’re going to need the right music at the right time. The final piece of the ultimate wedding package, our DJs will bring your wedding celebration to the next level. Pick the music, don’t pick the music, create a “do not play list”, or give us no list at all, we’ll get to know you and your guests and construct a playlist that fits just right. But our DJs do more than just play songs, they bring energy to your wedding with engaging announcements, introductions and more.
