Keeping track of the jargon used in the lighting industry can be confusing when looking into lighting for your wedding. Here are some of the most commonly seen terms:
These are lighting fixtures that are placed below eye level(usually on the floor along walls) and project beams of light upwards to highlight architecture, frame entryways and windows, or simply to add color and light.
Narrow and concentrated beams of light are used to highlight objects of interest in the room such as centerpieces, the cake table, sweetheart table, place cards, guestbook area, floral arrangements, and art.
An effect where lighting fixtures blanket an entire area to create a mood or change the look of décor.
Circular stencils made of metal, glass, or(with cutting-edge LED fixtures like ours) plastic are put over a light source to project a design or pattern onto a ceiling, wall, or floor. Monograms, names, dates and wedding motifs are popular gobo designs.
LED stands for "light emitting diode" and is a type of light that uses far less power and outputs less heat than traditional bulbs that have been used in the past. LEDs can also change color to a myriad of hues unlike bulbs which are either one color or require a "gel" or colored overlay.
- Never use green wash lighting, it will make your guests' skin look terrible. Amber, rose, and magenta are known to make guests' skin look fantastic.
- Hire a professional! Professionals know what works and what does not when it comes to lighting an event. Fixtures can be very technical to operate, and setting them up correctly and gaffing cable properly are needed to avoid hazards and injury to your guests and the venue.
- Don't neglect outdoors areas! Courtyards, patios, and other locations that your guests' may be gathered can be brought to life by wireless lighting.
