1) Your wedding is in a beautiful place. If you’re getting married in a remarkable old hotel, a modern gem or a building with some history, lighting will often highlight the beauty in an already impressive space. Architectural features like columns and windows can be lit for effect, and materials like unfinished brick and plaster really catch the eye when they’re lit right. If you’re planning on wearing makeup on your wedding day, you already understand this principle – it’s about making a good thing look its best!
2) Your wedding is in an ugly place. Some venues have amazing food and the perfect ceremony spot. However, sometimes there’s a wall in that main ballroom that’s a little underwhelming. Uplighting can do wonders for a bland slab of drywall or an unimpressive corner, dressing it up so it ties into the rest of your party instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.
3) Your wedding is in a familiar place. Getting married at your parents’ home, or at a theater you love? Renting an “alternative” space like a greenhouse or barn and transforming it to the event space of your dreams? Uplighting adds more than a dash of the dramatic, making something familiar into something extraordinary with the flip of a switch.
