Matt and Emily’s Uplighting Wow!

I’ve begun to offer uplighting to my clients through our sister comapny Light Your Day. If you are not familiar with this type of decorative lighting you’ll be amazed to see what a difference it can make in the look and feel of your reception. Since my entertainment stlye is all about helping coupels be creative, fun and organized these amazing lights fit right in.

This event where I used the uplighting is Matthew and Emily’s wedding and reception at The French House in French Park. I had the pleasure to work with some of the industries finest vendors on this event. Photography was done by Steph Carson who does a great job and is easy to work with. Jeff Thomas handled the catering and had some nice ideas for the layout of this event since guests were spread around the property. Joyce with Micheal Bambino Co. shot the video and was really impressed with the lighting. I hope to have a video from her soon.

Matthew and Emily’s wedding and reception were at the same location. I provided a ceremony system which included a small sound system, a microphone on a stand for two readings and a lapel microphone for the minister. A string trio played the ceremony music.

Across the lawn on the back patio of the French House I was set-up with my Bose system neatly placed to provide sound to the tent and to the lower patio for dancing.

Matt and Emily wanted a casual and fun evening. The layout of the facility proved to be a challange with many guests seated inside, some on veranda and even more seated outside under the tent. We managed to pull it all together and create a smooth flowing and amazing evening. With their guests gathered around them on the patio the couple shared a fun first dance which transitioned into toasts and the cake cutting. This was all done up front so that guests would all be in the same area. With Matt and Emily’s approval and some help from the guests at the end of dinner I presented a David Letterman style top 10 list of the reasons Matthew and Emily should be together. It was met with great laughter, cheers from the crowd and smiles on the bride and grooms faces. It also pulled guests back to the patio where they could witness the parent dances. Matt and Emily’s friends and family danced the night away to a variety of music from current hits to 80’s party favorites. The newlyweds had a big sparkler exit as they headed off on their honeymoon.

And now to the uplighting. Here are some pictures. Just look at how it can transform an event.

The French House is truely an amazing setting for a wedding reception. It is also a place where I would certainly recommend highering a Master of Ceremonies with great coordination skills due to it’s layout. Maybe I’m biased.

    I absolutely LOVED what you did with the lighting for their wedding! I thought is was a great idea to light each of the pillars. It really set a mood for the evening. Definitely worth it.

    I was here. Wish you had found me. I hear that at receptions pretty often. Ladies who have been married already come up and say similar things. Thanks for reading the blog. Tell your friends.
