In The Spotlight

music entertainment,event lightings

When planning an event, one thing that is often overlooked is lighting. Professional lighting is often associated only with photography or video production, but the right lighting can make an event stand out. The choices are only limited by your imagination. Think about events you’ve attended, your favorite restaurant, or even what you’ve seen on TV. Lighting, like music, sets the mood for the event.


Lighting is placed on the floor and shines upward to draw attention to a decoration (such as a wedding cake), a keynote speaker, or an architectural detail. Even if there isn’t a specific focal feature, uplighting creates a soft wash of light, with or without color.

Gobo Lighting

A gobo is a stencil that’s placed over a light to create a pattern or logo, usually on the floor or wall. Once it was the provenance of celebrity events, but it’s become popular at weddings, birthdays, and other celebrations.
