Sometimes you gotta roll with the punches- or in this case, the rain. We planned on an outside ceremony and reception, but inclement weather forced Mandy and Alex to look into tents. Once typical Florida weather hit, it was time to move it indoors after a conversation with them the night prior. No big deal, we’ll make the Visitor’s Center at the Bok Tower look INCREDIBLE and create something that has never before been done there.
Why hasn’t this setup been done before? The reception was to start at 6:00 (ceremony still outside under a tent) and the Center closes at 5:00PM. Usually this is no problem, but a setup like this requires us to begin setup at least 3-5 hours early. Luckily, the Bok Tower staff was more than accommodating. Fitting in 200+ people in there was no easy feat, but it was done, and everyone had an amazing time.
This is one of my favorite lighting setups for a wedding because of how and where it happened. This was the first time the Bok Tower ever had anything like this indoors for a wedding. We had a few different items:
- Flood lighting to tint the entire room with their wedding colors
- Pure white lights to show off every detail of the wedding dress, as well as to capture special moments
- Moving lighs to create excitement and also spotlight special events
- Colored Discoball: A modern twist on a retro look
- Monogram: The ONLY way to make a location be truly yours!
- Custom light shows for special songs!
It was a great party, and our lighting tech, Calvin (my son), made sure that the lights didn’t miss a beat. Scenes, chases, and fades were timed perfectly and customized to their wedding colors. Check out the custom first dance and other great moments in the videos below– as well as their Harlem Shake!
Lake Region and I returned back to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for their 2013 Prom. While the theme celebrated many of the great sights this country has to offer, the “unofficial” theme was Turn Up as that’s the two main words chanted that night. This a was non-stop energetic event– then again, they did rock with the best!
It was a small and simple setup, but it fit the school’s budget and needs, and the most important part was that they had an amazing DJ; thus the Lucky 13 Prom Tour begins! Pics and video below!
“Between the Devil and the Deep, Blue Sea” was their homecoming theme. In otherwords: ONE SIDE RED, ONE SIDE BLUE. I love these types of themes, as we can do some great things with the lighting, and they are easy to decorate for.
One side had blue flames with red uplights, whereas the other side had a water effect with blue uplights. A giant X was set above the dance floor (X marks the spot, get it?) while a 20′ video screen stole all the attention. This setup looked so nice, that American DJ (a major lighting manufacturer) featured it on one of their mailers. Click here to see it!
Our hypeman, B. Frank, got challenged by a couple of students at a dance contest, and the whole room went wild! Check out the pictures and video below!
The $90K Tour Stop is off to a BIG start with Fort Meade High.
With record ticket sales, Fort Meade experienced a new setup that we haven’t tried before! The students requested a WIDE variety of music, from club, to line dance (country), to even a few throwbacks!
