Looking to add that something ‘special’ to your wedding or reception? Consider uplights. Uplighting is growing in popularity at weddings and receptions because it enhances the entire event. They can literally bring an entire room to life. Wedding uplighting is the strategic placement of LED uplights on the ground/floor so that they project light at particular objects or off of walls. It’s really the art of painting with light – creating a beautiful background of color at the event. DJ Cutt Entertainment are experts at knowing where and when to use LED wedding uplights.
Colored uplighting will turn a boring room with plain walls into a colorful and unique space. If expertly coordinated in advance, these color schemes can be used to bring out the accent colors at your event and it works especially well at weddings! The colors can match your bridesmaid dresses, flowers and more. A popular choice for brides and grooms is to uplight the head table. Not only do uplights draw attention and make the head table a nice focal point for your guests but they also look great in photos. Your photographer will have a wonderful opportunity to capture special pictures during the toasts with a uniquely lit background tailored to your specific tastes. Light fixtures project washes of light adding color, warmth and depth complementing the colors you are using for your decor. Uplighting looks fantastic in photos and is a great base layer for transforming the event space.
Here at DJ Cutt Entertainment we work with the bride and groom on our uplighting packages and find the perfect match for your big day. The uplighting LED fixtures are customized to match your theme. We also do spotlight entrances at the reception if the couple so chooses. Monogrammed lighting on the dance floor or event walls is another option. Even intelligent lighting where computer software controls the lights can be implemented. We have several video examples of our wedding uplighting on this page – we invite you to watch a few of the videos to see how they can dramatically change a reception hall or wedding venue.
Generally you need a light for every 10ft – 20ft of wall length depending on the overall look that you want to achieve. Uplighting can come in any color for your event. Amber, blues, purples, teals, reds, yellows all look really nice for uplighting. Wedding lights can be done as whites, a texture light, or in conjunction with a pipe and drape. You can do a solid color throughout the room, multiple colors or have the lights change for different points during the evening.
Lighting is the most cost effective way to transform and enhance your reception space. Choose a company who strives to understand your event, asks questions, and is able to show you what each of the lighting effects will do to a space. Flowers, cakes, menus, food, place card settings, photos, venues and people all look better in the right light. Vision is the one of most important senses to entertain during an event, lighting is the magical element that helps you define exactly what they see.
