Lighting is one of the most overlooked components of wedding décor, but the right light can truly make all the difference when it comes to setting the vibe for your big day! Today we are talking about how to create mood, add powerful emphasis to your design elements, and set the stage for stellar wedding photos by simply playing with light!

The impact of light

You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world. Oprah Winfrey


Mood lighting is a simple, yet effective way to create an inviting environment for your guests to enjoy. Vary the intensity, type, and placement of light to accommodate the different phases of your event (think ceremony, dinner, and party lighting). Dim the lights for cocktail hour then brighten them a bit for dinner. Play with color, reflections, and shadows to subtly add warmth and interest to your interior and exterior spaces.

Highlight Design Elements

Use light to strategically focus your guests’ attention on design elements that you want to emphasize. Incorporate soft lighting along the aisle of your ceremony site to enhance the romance. Add candlelight to punctuate the beautiful flowers and glassware of your centerpieces. Illuminate your cake table and specialty stations to create added allure.

Spotlight People and Traditions

Use light to emphasize important people and ceremonial elements. Spotlight your first dance, toasts, bouquet and/or garter toss to visually encourage participation in the sentimental moments of your big day.
