How you choose to light your space can make all the difference in accenting your reception décor- it is what will make all the difference in customizing an event venue. Below we have broken down the different ways that lighting can transform a space, in both good and bad ways.
Color washing is using lights of a specific color to cover an entire area in a light glow. This effect can be very romantic and makes the room feel warm and inviting. Color washing is utilized best when combined with other lighting effects such as pin spotting. If color washing is the only lighting effect you choose to use, it can make the room look a bit flat overall and all of your special design elements will get lost. You can also choose to only color wash a certain area of the room such as the dance floor or behind the bar, this accents those areas in a more subtle way than pin spotting.
String lights are an extremely versatile style of lighting for events. They can be hung from the ceiling or used as a backdrop against a wall of your reception space. String lights also come in a variety of styles and shapes. One of our personal favorites are Edison Bulbs which are a bit rounder and create a different ambiance in a space compared to regular string lights.
