Wedding lighting and sound at International Market Square

 

IMG_1188

For a recent wedding at the International Market Square we had the privilage of working with a couple that wanted to transform the space for their reception. Working closely with D’Amico Catering and Eventlab, we saturated the room with 50 LED uplights as well as highlighting Eventlab’s crystal chandeliers with gobo projection from our intelligent moving lights. This wedding made the use of every type of lighting fixture in our inventory, whether it was the custom gobo projection on the dancefloor or using a follow spot for the couples first dance. In two separate locations we set up 2 55” LED TVs with a looping slide show. We also provided the sound system for the ceremony and the DJ.

The Knot event at the Golden Valley Country Club

Recently we had the pleasure to be a sponsor for the annual Knot event.  Thanks to Hana at Mani-Mela and Kelly Brown Photography we had the opportunity to show everyone in the business a little more of what we can do, as well as some clever alternatives to common needs.  I was happy to show off  what we can do for lighting at this event, the purple LED uplighting added a whole new depth and temperature to the room, while the gobos hitting the ceiling added a completely different texture from an angle you wouldn’t suspect.  Another demonstration we were able to show was what to do about projection.  When a slide show needs to be played we like to substitute the projector for a flat screen TV, you get all the benefits of a large screen but without the worry of sunlight or people walking through the projection; a very handy way of handling a cramped space.
