Cambridge Marriott Boston

August 23, 2010

The Cambridge Marriott Boston is located right by the MIT Campus. (just driving through makes you feel smarter) ūüôā We transformed 2 sections of the ballroom¬†for this very stylish wedding. We washed 2 airwalls¬†in a light amber texture, and uplit¬†the opposing walls with a light pink to match the linens¬†and chair sashes. As the night progressed the colors slowly faded into other complementing shades. During a few of the high energy dance sets, the walls came alive with color creating¬†a high end club atmosphere thanks to our wireless lighting control system.¬†¬†¬†

Avon Old Farms Hotel, Avon, CT

August 15, 2010
The Towbridge ballroom at The Avon Old Farms Hotel in Avon, CT is just the place for a small intimate elegant wedding with an adjacent tent covered patio. We created an elegant atmosphere with our light Amber uplights individually dimmed via our proprietary IPod controlled dimmer system for conventional lighting fixtures. At this wedding, we worked with the DreamTeam,  a great 11 piece horn band from NYC.

Tent Wedding in Southwick, Massachusetts

August 10, 2010

When I was first approached by Jason and Beth about lighting a tent for their Wedding in Southwick, Massachusetts, there were more then a few open items. Like color and the size of the tent for instance! But this wedding has raised the bar in our book for a successful back yard (yes,  back yard!!) wedding. The tent was 120 feet by 40 feet and provided by Fantasy Tents of East Longmeadow.  This was one of the largest tents we have worked in and the quality of the tent was amazing!
We washed the ceiling with a light Amber leaf texture and pinspotted the tables for contrast. We also hung a few 24″ white lanterns in the bar tent and on the deck of the home hosting the wedding.
We also had the pleasure of providing lighting for¬†the band Maxxtone. This band rocked the reception and had the dance floor full until… well, whatever time we got out of there. Yes, folks we enjoyed ourselves at this wedding :). The catering was provided by The North Elm Butcher Block of Westfield and the food was amazing!¬†

The Boston Harbor Hotel

August 10, 2010

The Boston Harbor Hotel is a great place for a wedding! The view is spectacular and the service is second to none. The venue has some features that make lighting the room a fun project! There are accessible, but unnoticable lighting battens built in to the ceiling for Pinspots or lekos, and a dmx console built into the room! The 6 columns in the center of the room can be uplit with either our wireless units or our pars or short bars. The perimeter of the room looks great with our 1 meter LED bars for full, even coverage.

Mohegan Sun

August 10, 2010

Uplighting the Uncasville ballroom at the Mohegan Sun Casino takes a little bit of doing!  We used our 1 meter LED Bars to uplight the traditional indian decor sconces and pinspotted the Cake table, Head Table and selected guest tables. We also provided a subtle texture to hide the massive airwall that divided the 40,000 square foot ballroom into the more manageable Salon A !

Tommy and Laura at The Log Cabin

August 10, 2010

The recent wedding of Tommy and Laura Plante at The Log Cabin included many of our wedding vendor friends. It’s only right that the owner of Hard at Play DJ service had one of the most well planned and elegant weddings we’ve lit this year!
We uplit the perimeter of the ballroom with shades of Lipstick and slowly transformed the color to Spice over the course of the evening and added accents of Amber to the airwall. We pinspotted¬†the table arrangements from Durocher Florist, the cake from Cerrato’s Bakery, and the head table.
Joining us that evening were Seth Kaye Photography, Steven Fowler Films, CT Party Photos, and DJ Rob Alberti.
