UPLIGHTING - The right lighting makes everything magical!

A Must-Have

Uplighting is quickly becoming a must-have option at most events. With the rapid rise in cool-running LED technology, the fixtures have become economical and most importantly, safe for use around hundreds of guests.


Transform your venue from ordinary to extraordinary with uplighting. You can create an ambiance of soft candlelit romance with amber uplighting, or decorate your space in festive colors to achieve the look and feel you desire.

Uplighting fixtures are placed strategically throughout the room to create brilliant columns of light that beam up the wall or architectural fixtures. Uplights are a dazzling way to tie together your design and décor elements.

ACCENT UPLIGHTING: This look will add interest with uplighting without breaking the bank.  Choose certain areas of your wedding venue to highlight with uplighting, such as your head table (2 - 6 up lights), cake table (1 - 2 up lights), wedding guest book table (1 - 2 up lights), or dance floor (2 - 4 up lights).

MODERATE COVERAGE: This is the option for those who want to set the mood and create an elegant ambiance with uplighting.  Adds a nice overall effect to your venue with moderate coverage. Space lights 10 feet apart around perimeter of room.

MAXIMUM COVERAGE: For the "wow" effect, choose maximum coverage.  Event lighting professionals refer to this as a "color wash."  Basically, every inch of wall will be covered in colorful uplighting.  This is the icing on the cake for a beautiful venue.  Or, use a color wash to transform a drab venue into a modern, chic space. Space lights 5 feet apart around perimeter of room.
