Why is Lighting So Important?

A recent article by Aja Frost at the Knot titled “What Wedding Planners Spurge and Save On” listed wedding elements that couples should budget more for. Lighting was listed as a “splurge item” and we could not agree more!

From the Knot’s article: ‘“Lighting is one of the most critical details,” says Lynn Easton, founder and creative director of Easton Events. “There’s no reason to have gorgeous flowers or an amazing tabletop design if no one can really see them! Lighting is expensive, but it makes the room feel fabulous.” Whether your wedding is indoors or outdoors, at night or during the day, investing in lighting will help you create the proper ambience and effect.’

We thought we should show you just how much of a difference lighting can make:

Another example here of ceremony front lighting. Your aisle can be softly illuminated with candles, creating a darker look for your guests. When ceremony lighting is added, the focus is all on you!
