What Uplighting Adds to a Wedding Reception

Hey gang, how was your weekend? Mine was spent at a fantastic wedding at the Carmel Valley Ranch. Here’s a quick clip highlighting my new lighting setup. Definitely added to the energy and celebration without being over the top or cheesy. I ran the lights in a static color during dinner and early dancing. When it was time to “turn up” the lights went into a sound-activated mode that matched the beat of the songs perfectly.

What do you think, is uplighting right for your reception? Let me know in the comments below.

Her Birthday Party was a Smash Hit

Received a note from a recent client who’s birthday party was held recently at the Sainte Claire hotel. Glad I was a part of a special occasion:

Thank YOU!  I have had several comments complimenting you and your style.  You were quite patient with all the kiddies and we do appreciate it.

As you might have figured out, we have had several serious health threats in our immediate family in the last year (one being my husband).  This was a celebration for them as well as for me and you helped to make it quite a success.

I will keep your information. . . another party in the future is quite possible.

The formula for this success isn’t a big secret. Take a great group of people, give them an evening to enjoy food and music and let the sparks happen. Why not use this same recipe on your next birthday, anniversary or holiday party? Contact me today!

Saratoga Mountain Winery

Chateau Julien

Guglielmo Winery

Clos LaChance

Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay

Oceano Hotel & Spa

Asian Art Museum of San Francisco

The Sainte Claire Hotel
