Dana & Dave – Brooklyn Arts Center

This couple’s wedding was a fun design with an original, but classic design vibe. The Brooklyn Arts Center lighting worked well for both their ceremony and their reception. Here are a few images of the overhead Edison string lights and the vertical wall backdrop lighting behind large balloons…

Jamie + Mike | Brooklyn Arts Center

Brooklyn Arts Center is a beautiful venue that is rich in warm textures and colors. Brittany from Orchid Island Events and I met and supplemented those design elements with our new vintage bulbs and handmade lighting features.  Our over-sized vintage bulbs fit perfectly above the band and provided a focal point on the stage and lighting for the band, Port City Shakedown.

The Aquarium at Fort Fisher is a unique venue that can magical at night.  Due to the dark nature of the venue lighting is really needed to make it beautiful and functional.  Pin spotting florals and your cake or adding our led lined railings adds both.  Here are some images from Genie Leigh Photography that help to capture some of our lights there.

Biking and Lighting – a Creative Mix Indeed

outdoor lighting mountain bikes

Two of my favorite things, bicycles and lights.

This video by Sweetgrass Productions, aptly named “Darklight”, uses light to illuminate various landscapes and then adds mountain bikes to the mix. It’s a great example of how light can transform a scene into something very special!

This took over three weeks and 27 crew members to accomplish. Charging my lights now!

Wedding Lighting at Making Memories House in Ocean Isle Beach


The Making Memories house in Ocean Isle Beach makes a great wedding reception venue.

The back yard is large enough to accommodate a large number of guests and the lighting possibilities there are many. Here, we lit the palm trees and fence line, lamposts, string lighting and colored uplighting under the house.
