Just as the candles, flowers, and décor are a big part of your special day, so can lighting be part of enhancing the visual appeal of your wedding. They accent your amazing celebration, your love, your uniqueness, and your style that is…well, you! Here’s a few wedding lighting ideas…
A subtle, soft lighting during dinner adds a romantic ambiance. We carefully consider light levels that will compliment any candles you plan to use, yet subtlety enhance a room to it’s full potential. Sprinkle in some exquisite and strategic up-lighting to transform an ordinary place into an extraordinary space. During summer Colorado months, like an Estes Park wedding at Della Terra Mountain Chateau, or an elegant wedding at the Chateaux at Fox Meadows, or even a fun wedding at Brookside Gardens, additional lighting beyond dance floor lighting simply may not make much sense during the summer months (due to a later sunset). In fact, lighting beyond basic dance floor lighting may detract from the ambiance of a beautiful venue, stunning views or that perfect Colorado setting. Don’t worry! We still have some very creative ideas for decor!
Your wedding, whether you realize it or not, will bring guests on an emotional journey, from joy, surprise, friendship, laughter, love and hope. Your wedding lighting and décor (working in tandem with music) should compliment these emotions to produce a one-of-a-kind Colorado wedding celebration.
Lighting should always be considered part of the wedding décor budget in the same manner as flowers, table linens, chair covers, ceiling treatments, and flower centerpieces. Wedding lighting is not a simple budget line item entitled “lighting” because unlike linens, flowers or favors, lighting and décor is the only element that will enhance the overall atmosphere (and experience) of your wedding celebration.
Lighting and décor ideas
Lighting and décor is a delicate blend of aesthetic and technical creation that can be literally used to create an infinite number of dramatic effects. By using effective wedding lighting ideas and tools of varying color, intensity, shape, size, texture and contrast, these can be used to evoke a full range of moods, and emotions, from calm to excited, joy, to utter exhilaration. Frankly, no other medium exists that can establish mood more effectively than well done lighting and décor. In the end, effective wedding lighting completes a full circle of both the emotion and performance action in any production, wedding or event, to accent words, music and movement.
Dimming the lights
Another wedding lighting idea? Dimming the lights after dinner motivates your guests to dance, but our separate lighting division can make the celebration an amazing, total experience with just the right lighting and décor. Perhaps adding bistro lights for the romantic European cafe feel?
So, when you’re ready for your debut, we’ll simply dim the lights and accentuate your colors (using “Color Theory for Weddings) for the perfect atmosphere with many of of our common wedding celebration enrichment options our brides love! (additional lighting and decor prices from Amore’ Wedding Lighting and Decor, a division of Amore DJ Entertainment, range from $500 to $10,000)
