The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station in Haddam, CT – Wedding DJ & Lighting

The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station in Haddam, CT – Wedding DJ & Lighting

The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station located at 55 Bridge Road in Haddam CT is a wonderful location for your CT Shoreline wedding.  It’s a bit off the beat and path, but worth the trip (I don’t have much for cell service, but I’m on Sprint).  It has a couple beautiful outdoor areas (wrap around porch off the back and a large patio on the side) and don’t forget the grand staircase inside that leads to a large indoor social hour area.

The high arching ceiling lines of The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station is what get’s most people’s attention.     They especially look amazing with our added up-lighting for your Connecticut Wedding.  We’ve projected texture patterns on the ceiling for some added character and your wedding photos at The Riverhouse will look so much better with our added lighting. (Just ask your wedding photographer)  With all the windows in The Riverhouse, you will want to make sure your wedding lighting professional has top of the line gear to properly light this large wedding venue.  Our LED fixtures are high output fixtures with 15,000 – 30,000 LUX @ 1m to […]

Ashley + Rick – The Riverview in Simsbury CT – Wedding DJ + Lighting

Ashley + Rick had a gorgeous day to be married outside at The Riverview in Simsbury CT.  There was a lot of laughter during the ceremony (one of the flower girls ran off in the middle of the ceremony and dad had to go chasing after her).   We provided microphones and music for both the ceremony and reception.

Ashley + Rick did get the free built in lighting at The Riverview but opted to have us come in and supplement it with our pro-level up-lighting.  We installed lighting to light up the beautiful columns in The Riverview (their lighting is on the windows?).   We also projected their name in lights on the air-wall.

We had to battle a prom in the other half of the Riverview so we started dancing between meal courses to keep from hearing the other room.  It all worked out as people got up to dance and kept the energy going.

Nicole + Kyle – The Marquee – Wedding Hartford CT

Nicole & Kyle had both their ceremony and reception at The Marquee (Gershon Fox Room) in Hartford CT.   We provided the lighting in the ballroom as well as on the white drapery behind the ceremony in the atrium. Sound support for the ceremony (microphones & music) as well as DJ & Photo Booth were through us.

It just makes it so much easier for our clients to utilize all our services.  There is only one contact for all your services.  It also makes it easier on us as I have control over my staff so I can send Pat to pick up lights in the atrium while Jesse is starting the cocktail music upstairs and then they reconvene to setup the photo booth and manage the behind the scenes details as I concentrate on DJing.

It was a beautiful ceremony in the atrium and then guests headed upstairs to the Mezzanine for cocktails.  The ballroom glowed with our amber up-lighting as guests entered for dinner.

Dancing started off with a bang and it was looking to be a great party but unfortunately, a medical emergency caused an unexpected wrinkle in the activities.  It seems their 92 year old grandfather collapsed in the […]

How Many Up-Lighting Fixtures Do I Need For My Wedding Reception?

How Many Up-Lighting Fixtures Do I Need For My Wedding Reception? This is a question that we get asked all the time in the lighting industry. As a wedding lighting expert, there is not a single answer to this question. It depends on whether there are specific things or objects in the room that need to be highlighted. Is the room symmetrical? You want your lighting to be symmetrical and fit the space as well. Too many fixtures can be just as bad as too few.

Mechanics Hall – Worcester MA – Wedding Reception – Event Up-Lighting

We provided DJ, Photo Booth and up-lighting services for Nikki’s wedding at Mechanics Hall in downtown Worcester.  This is a HUGE venue requiring a large number of our staff to properly run this event (We had DJ, assistant, 2 photo booth attendants and a lighting technician)

We setup the drapery behind Nikki’s head table onstage and then lit everything in baby pink.  With nearly 300 guests – this was a full house.

Check out some of the images we took at Nikki’s wedding and of Mechanics Hall in Worcester.

The Winvian in Morris, CT with our event lighting – Rustic Barn, Cleartop Tent

Our lighting was installed at The Winvian this past weekend for Allyson & David’s wedding.   We up-lit the barn with amber to warm up the space and then did an amber wash in their cleartop tent just outside the Gordon Brown House.

Adding warm amber up-lighting to a barn will help warm the deep wood tones and lighten your barn wedding venue.  Barn weddings can be very dark and adding custom lighting to your barn will help brighten your wedding day.

Shari & Eric’s Wedding at The Society Room of Hartford CT

Shari & Eric already had a DJ, but they hired us to provide event lighting for their wedding reception at The Society Room of Hartford.   We had up-lighting both on the main level as well as up-stairs.   Their name in lights matched their invitation and we placed it on the wall near the cake table.   Later, we wirelessly controlled the lights based on the music to add some fun to the reception dancing.

The Pavillion at Pinehills – Plymouth MA – Cape Cod Wedding DJ – Lighting

The Pavillion at Pinehills located on Cape Cod in Plymouth, MA is a wonderful place for a wedding reception.  We were invited in for their tasting / open house to provide our Edison Bulb string lighting to enhance the wood beams in this beautiful wedding facility.

String lights can be used both indoors and outdoors as long as you have something to hang them from.  At Pinehills, there are amazing high ceilings with wood beams just for that.  All our string lights are put on dimmers so that the light level can be adjusted as the night moves on to suit your needs.
