From lanterns in the trees, to a dimly lit reception tent and monogram on the dance floor, event lighting can transform a venue and create the perfect atmosphere at your wedding.

According to Bentley Meeker, America’s premiere lighting designer, “Light creates the environment, and the environment creates the mood, and the mood creates the experience. Light is one singular difference between an average event and a great one.”

Meeker, who has lit weddings for Chelsea Clinton and Catherine Zeta-Jones, shares with us some important tips on how to light a great event:

1. GO DARKER: Always make your lighting just a little bit darker than you think you should. This adds the sexiness and mood that most people are looking for at their events.

2. HAVE EVERYTHING DIMMABLE: It is critical for everything to be adjustable and at your fingertips (or close by).

3. USE LED’s SPARINGLY: Be extremely selective with where you use LED’s. Technology is becoming rampant at events and is often coming at the expense of beautiful light.
