The right kind of Event Lighting can transform any Maui Wedding from dull to dramatic. There are many different variations to choose from. Essentially the choices really are unlimited. In this blog I cover just a few options of lighting. Let KCK Entertainment provide a touch of dramatic to your Wedding or Special Event.
Up Lighting is one of the basic elements to add to a wedding reception. Up Lights can be coordinated to match your wedding colors and bring some added light to your reception whether your venue is inside or outside. Uplights can be “sync’d” and can rotate colors throughout the night for a dramatic effect. Example, say you want to start the night with a blue color during dinner and when the dancing starts, change to green and white! These lights are called “up” lights because they do just that…they shine upwards from the floor on key areas around your venue (along the wall, against trees or greenery, highlighting pillars or columns, etc). There are two types of up lights which can be provided. LED Uplights can match the cooler, brighter colors and give off no heat and are eco-friendly, using very little power to illuminate. Traditional Par Can Uplights have the ability to match warm tones such as amber but can get very hot and require more power, traditionally here in Maui, we use these High Wattage Par Cans to Illuminate the Ocean and give it an amazing glow. Both LED’s and Par Can lights have their advantages and disadvantages so be sure to discuss what will work best with your wedding planner and Lighting Specialist for your desired venue.
Pin Spot Lighting is a simple way to highlight all of the details and decor at your wedding with a large pay- off because they provide so much value in enhancing your pictures. We guarantee if you ask any floral designer or photographer their opinion, they will absolutely recommend this type of lighting for your reception. These lights are especially perfect if you want to show off the beautiful flowers and details in your centerpieces, along with your cake or sweets table. They are called “pin” spot lights because of their small size and ability to accurately provide light on even the smallest details. They are usually mounted on a pipe and base structure and can be dimmed to ensure none of your guests are blinded when sitting at their tables. We at KCK Entertainment will always stay at the event long enough to check the accuracy and brightness of the pin spots once your guests have been seated. When you start to combine pin spot lighting with any other decor lighting you can create a very romantic and beautiful ambience that your guests will not forget.
Custom Monogram and Textured Gobos have become increasingly popular over the past few years. There are thousands of pre-designed monograms to choose from OR you can design your own and even match it to your invitations or ceremony program. The textured gobos are patterns that shine on the dance floor or tent ceiling or any focal point throughout your event. These “breakout” patterns can really add to your design and make your pictures stand out. They can transform any dull, blank surface to a beautiful backdrop. Imagine having an LED Waterfall on that bare wall or ceiling, very dramatic. Custom GOBOs have a production cost associated with them since each gobo has to be custom created for your event. However, these lights can add a lot of value to your lighting design and truly make your event unique.
