Unique Lighting Ideas.

There is nothing more impactful to the decor of your special day than unique wedding lighting. Whether it illuminates the ceremony or brightens the reception, incorporating an inventive and brilliant touch adds not just light, but radiance.

This romantic display is created with glass geometric and round lights hung by silk ribbons. The clear glass mirrors the clear ceiling, creating an infinite glow above the party.


String lights are petite, airy and elegant no matter where you use them. This long family-style reception table is illuminated with string lights. As night falls on this reception, the lights will be that much more beautiful and bright.


If your venue has high ceilings or beams, suspending creative light fixtures can be quite transformative. Round woven orbs are strung with white lights to give this large reception venue a ceiling of luminosity.


An easy, DIY project with just a few essentials is perfect for the modern couple. A chic, minimalist light display includes glass topiaries, clear wire and tea lights. The clean, crisp appearance would be perfect for any art gallery, modern restaurant or loft.


And if you’re looking to impress with your illumination, chandeliers will never go out of style. While chandeliers aren’t a new concept, incorporating a chandelier outside of a ballroom – like in a clear tent – has become a chic and elegant way to add light to any ceremony or reception.


If your venue lacks interesting lighting options or you want to cast a certain ambiance at your wedding, tap into your creativity and think about a display you can manage. Whether it’s a few added string lights or an entire tent made of lights, the added touch of extra light will renew the look and feel of your big day.
