I came across this good post on wedding lighting and thought I would share. It is hard not to come of as “salesy” when we try to tell people how much of an impact lighting really can make. This article is from a wedding planners prospective and has some great before and after pictures to illustrate.

This past Saturday I got to entertain at the awesome wedding celebration of Edward Sim and Elisa Rah at the Hyatt Deerfield. Edward and Elisa put a lot of thought into the planning of their wedding to make it a true reflection of their style and taste and it really made for a fun and memorable wedding for their guests.

While scanning one of the popular wedding websites today, as I often do to stay informed about the industry, I came across a great blog entry about wedding lighting by Caroline Wolfe Papocchia that I thought I would share with everyone.

Kristin and Donald got married last Saturday at the Eaglewood Resort in Itasca and what a wonderful day it was. It would have been nice had the weather cooperated and been as warm as it was earlier in the week but alas, we live in Chicago.

Despite the chill in the air and a little rain the reception was a great party. A few things were different from a typical MDM wedding reception though. The first thing was that when the bride and groom were introduced there was very little cheering and hand clapping. This wasn’t because the couple’s friends and family weren’t enthusiastic, quite the contrary actually, but because the couple was deaf. Instead of clapping your hands together for applause, deaf people throw their hands up in the air and shake them. There were definitely a lot of hands up in the air shaking vigorously as Kristin and Donald entered the room!

Schaumburg, IL. March 31st, 2010 – New trends in the wedding industry indicate that today’s brides want the luxurious ambiance that lighting décor can offer at their wedding without having to spend $20,000 to make it happen.

Lighting is often overlooked when discussing wedding décor. This is unfortunate because lighting can have a significant impact on the look and feel of your wedding for a relatively small investment. The proper lighting can transform an ordinary room into a stunning work of art. In addition to transforming the room, different types and colors of lighting can create different atmospheres and moods throughout the course of the evening.



When using lighting as part of your Chicago wedding décor the first element you should consider is having your name in lights. Tweet
