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.

Villa Rosa, Waterbury, CT

July 20, 2010

This was our first visit to Villa Rosa in Waterbury CT. This facility has 24 faux columns surrounding the perimeter of the ballroom. We uplit each one with our LED pars and added a few LED bars to highlight the draping along a row of windows. We also provided pinspotting, and a monogram gobo projection on the airwall with a complementing amber texture background. We also projected another monogram gobo onto the floor in the foyer to be seen as guests were leaving. We had the pleasure of working with DJ Rocco, Schaler Photography and Myers Video Productions for this wedding!

Don’t Forget the Couches!

July 20, 2010

We got a few double takes when we delivered 4 crisp white couches to the American Portuguese Club in Chicopee for a wedding on a recent Saturday.  People are used to seeing us loading in with our black road cases and lighting fixtures! But this day a very forward thinking couple had rented these 4 white couches from us along with 4 black tables to form a lounge area on each side of their sweetheart table. We don’t have any of the pro pics from the event yet, but here’s a few taken during setup.  These are available from us in White, Black or with enough notice, any color you wish. They look great with a nice fuzzed out gobo texture projection and pinspotted arrangements on the tables!

Three Weddings and a Lighting Design!

July 12, 2010

The Hunnewell Building on the grounds of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank, is one of our favorite venues to light. There is plenty of power, a high ceiling, and a big white empty room to work with! Our latest project there were 3 weddings in one weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The 3 couples and their families collaborated with us and the result was a medium amber conventional uplighting scheme with a lighter complementing texture gobo wash on the ceiling of the main building. We also uplit the attached tent (and a second tent added for the first wedding)  and hung 2 dozen illuminated white lanterns to add scale to the tent. Each wedding used the different parts of the building for different purposes, and we were able to adjust the design quickly to fit each couples needs. All 3 weddings were able to share the cost of the basic lighting package and  were able to add additional items for thier event. For the second wedding, we provided wireless mics and sound for the ceremony and for the reception supported a Jazz trio with a full sound system in the main room and provided a satellite speaker system and feed into the tent.
The third wedding moved the dance floor into the tent so we dimmed the lanterns and uplights to create a romantic atmosphere as the night progressed.

Springstep in Medford

June 24, 2010

Springstep is a  busy multi-use dance facility in the Boston suburb of Medford, MA. We used LED bars to transform a medium-sized dance studio into an upscale club room for dancing after the formal reception was held in the large studio upstairs! We lit an existing full length window drape with a custom programmed slow rolling color fade that complemented the wedding colors and added the Bride and Groom’s custom monogram via a gobo projection on the wall.

The Castle of Knights

June 21, 2010

The Castle of Knights is a classic banquet facility in Chicopee, MA. We were asked to provide a custom sized Gobo projection over the impressive stone fireplace, pinspot selected room elements and uplight the room.

Cape Cod Wedding Style

June 13, 2010

The Red Jacket Beach Resort on the Cape is a great venue for a family vacation; we’ve been there many times! But we recently had the opportunity to transform the function rooms at the facility for a great wedding. The location is perfect for a wedding and the service and food were outstanding. We used pipe and drape to hide some elements in the room and provided two scenes of uplighting, table pinspotting and a monogram gobo projection. Our friends from the Boston Common Band and E.C.F. Entertainment provided some of the best live entertainment we have heard at a wedding this year!

A Tuscan Wedding

June 6, 2010

We transformed The Log Cabin in Holyoke, MA for a Tuscan themed wedding using Amber uplights and a de-focused head table texture using antique floral breakup gobos. We pinspotted the Head Table, cake table and guest table arrangements to highlight and the transformation took its true form during a wonderful “Log Cabin” sunset! The food at this wedding was incredible and non-stop!

A Blue Wedding in the Berkshires

April 26, 2010

This weekend we were honored to light Sara and Joe’s wedding at the Crowne Plaza in Pittsfield, MA. This ballroom is great to work in; plenty of airwall track to hang fixtures from! We hung 12 Pinspots from the ceiling, and used 30 LED pars and 8 LED bars to uplight the entire 7600 sq.ft. ballroom (The largest ballroom in the Berkshires!)  in Blue with 2 Magenta accents by the gobo. We also custom designed the gobo projection to fit precisely in the space behind the head table.
