Lately I have been obsessed with lighting. Lighting for the wedding, lighting for the reception. I am, overall, simply illuminated with joy at the spectacle that has become what can almost be labeled as an archaic revival.
Many couples have chosen beautifully vibrant outdoor receptions with flowing and pouring streams of floating globes filled with specks of candle lit fires.
Some have made a spectacle from strings of Edison bulbs while others are trickling tapestries of Christmas lights mixed among the accentuating floral colors of their wedding.
Well, I have been tracking down pins for my Ceremony and Reception Lighting Board for several weeks now. Here are a few that stand out as they are indeed the most delightful of the bunch.
We here at Modern Era Weddings do strive to be the most up to date on wedding trends and often find ourselves talking to a bride that asks us, “Do you have those old fashioned lights? You know, the old timey ones that look like their from a hundred years ago?”
These are the lights known as Edison Bulbs and they are the epitome of perfect ambient reception lighting. Whether strung as individuals from wires, wrapped as a bunch in a make shift chandelier or cascading across the canopy above – Edison Bulbs are what you’re looking for.
Now I’m going to head back over to Pinterest and take a look at other forms of unique and eccentric lighting for weddings. Specifically I think I’ll take a stroll through the skies, as we offer here at Modern Era Weddings the very novel product of dancing on the clouds – perhaps for the next wedding, perhaps even yours, we’ll be ready to also offer clouds lit from above for your dance floor.
Do you have any special lighting features that you would like to share with us? What have you come across that has been illuminating?
