The right lighting can deliver the perfect first impression and capture your guests' attention throughout the ceremony and reception. With our high-quality wedding lighting rentals and professional wedding lighting design and installation services, we'll create the perfect backdrop for you to exchange your vows and create your first memories as a married couple. 

Importance of Choosing the Right Lighting for Your Wedding in Atlanta 

Lighting does more than add brightness to a space — the right type, amount and placement of lighting can impact the overall wedding mood and ambiance. If your wedding style is bright and cheerful, our team can add multiple accent lights to emphasize this mood. If you prefer to create more of a romantic atmosphere, we can design a softly glowing space with a balance of light and dark.

Whether you want to feel as if you are dancing under the stars or partying at an edgy club, our lighting for wedding receptions can transform your venue and fit your specific aesthetic. 





















Things to Keep in Mind as You Plan Your Wedding Lighting Design

There are a few important areas to consider before installing lighting for your wedding or reception: 


  • Does the venue already have some lighting? If so, how much and what kind?

  • What architecture or decor do you want to highlight?

  • Is there anything you want to de-emphasize in the venue?

  • Do you want to add a personalized touch through an image or a special monogram or date?


Considering these questions can help you narrow down what type of lighting services you'd like to incorporate in your venue.

Our Atlanta Wedding and Reception Lighting Services

At Illuminating Designs, we combine artistic designs with commercial-grade lighting to achieve a professional result. Depending on your needs and budget, we can incorporate the following lighting services into your wedding venue:


  • Cake mapping: With cake mapping, you can project an image — ranging from a picture to a special date — on your cake to tell a story.

  • Gobo lights: Gobo lights are a popular type of wedding lighting. By adding a stencil over the lights, you can project your monograms, wedding motifs or wedding date onto the dance floor, ceiling or wall. 

  • Pin spotting: Pin spots can create a focused beam to highlight something special, such as your wedding cake.

  • Uplighting: To create an "uplighting" effect, we place lighting fixtures in key areas on the ground and then pointed upward. 

  • Wash lighting: Wash lighting creates an even wash of light. For a dramatic effect, you can choose wash lighting in a color other than white.


We can also work with you to create a variety of other lighting features ranging from cafe to sound-activated lighting to transform your venue into an unforgettable space.
