Match Your Room with Your Color
What color will you use for your big day? The brighter your color, the better your results. Colors that are high in saturation show up better. This includes vibrant oranges, baby blues, pastel pinks, and festive greens. The most common solution we do for weddings is wall washes. This is accomplished by placing LED fixtures at the base of your walls around the perimeter of the room. During dinner and cocktail hour, lighting will match your linens and bridesmaids dresses. During the dancing portion of your evening, lighting will slowly fade between colors For example, if we play Lady in Red your whole room is red… if we play Usher Yea, your room is green like the music video. Your walls can even change color with the beat of your music.

Elegant Weddings have Pipe and Drape
Drapery is just one way to renovate the layout of any reception site. This is commonly done to create a beautiful backdrops behind your head table. Pipe & drape is also used when there are no other lighting choices. If your hall has wood panels or dark colored walls, then pipe and drape will give you a blank canvas.

You’ve probably seen some facilities that have walls that need to be covered. Drapery is a great way to fix these situations.You can even re-create separate spaces with pipe & drape. Some couples will use this around grand entrances and lounge areas. When up lighting pipe and drapery, we suggest light colored cloth for optimal color saturation.
Dance Under the Stars
Another way you can highlight your wedding reception is by lighting up your ceiling. Instead of using a color wash, you can give an open sky effect with our starry ceiling. This requires high powered fixtures with moving patterns that shine onto your ceiling. The end result gives the illusion that your building has no ceiling. A majority of forest, fall, and outdoor winter themes request this effect. Bring the outside inside with our constellations ceiling. Your family and friends will be captivated by the results.
Event trees give that natural feel to weddings
Event trees are an Encore original. You heard it right, you can have real trees at your wedding reception. Since they work best with lighting, the trees create shadows and add complexity to your room. They have a light texture which means they will be receptive to any color scheme your wedding uses. Your event trees will add a sophisticated vibe in a completely unconventional way. Another great method of highlighting your decor is by hanging crystal-beads, larger than life pinecones, mossy greens, or tying a variety of ribbon colors to branches.

You can even incorporate crystal bead strands hanging from branches in tall vases. These crystals will capture and reflect the pin-spotted lighting making your whole room shimmer like stars. All you need to create this stunning effect is (1) lighting fixture per table. Guests will notice all the time you’ve dedicated to your centerpieces.
Wash Your Ceiling to the Color of Your Choice
A ceiling wash helps top off your room by keeping it well balanced with color. This works especially well for venues that have vaulted ceilings and outdoor tented wedding receptions. The higher the ceiling the more efficiently your colors will blend. Majority of the times your ceiling is done in a secondary color to compliment the primary color. For example you can have teal walls with a light purple ceiling. Since the fixtures are computer controlled, your ceiling will change as the night progresses. Since we use intelligent moving head fixtures, ceiling washes can doubled as a follow-spot for grand entrances and special dances.
