In Demand Lighting Options | Lancaster | Northern VA | DC | Wedding Events

Providing DJ Service to clients in the Lancaster PA | Northern VA | Frederick MD area allows us to meet with a variety of people. It also allows us to DJ Corporate and Wedding events in a large variety of wedding and private event venues. One thing that all of the wedding and corporate party planners have in common is that they want their wedding or holiday party to be smashing success.

Obviously, hiring the right DJ Service provider is the most important thing to get right. Bad music or even great music selections played at the wrong time are not going to create a great result. Once you have secured you Wedding DJ or Party DJ Service, you should consider the options to enhance the experience and enjoyment of your guests.

For those looking to take their Lancaster wedding or corporate event to the next level, nothing does it easier or better than lighting. Lighting is by far the most versatile design element ever! We have all experienced its effects; whether it be a candle light dinner or simply dimming the lights before watching a movie, we all know the impact it can make on the mood.

Lighting is not just for the over the top $100,000 wedding budgets. Thankfully, lighting options exists for virtually everyone, and, trust me, it isn’t all about how much money you have to spend. You can overdo the lighting just as you can overdo just about anything else. 

Here, in no particular order, are the most popular lighting services for 2019 & 2020 weddings and corporate events.


Uplighting can completely transform or accentuate a venue. The number of lights used and the placement of these lights is a major factor in effect and visual impact made. The greater the number of lights utilized, the more dominant the lighting becomes. Obviously, the more lights required, the greater the financial impact to the wedding budget.

The amount of uplights used for at your party or wedding venue is a matter of preference, personal taste, number of guests, and size of the venue. Larger venues and a higher guest count typically go hand in hand and in those situations you will either want a greater quantity of lights or to be selective in what you are highlighting.

In my opinion you can create a “wow” moment either way. You can wash the entire venue in lighting as pictured in the images above or, focus on accentuating key areas of the wedding reception space. Those key areas would be: 

⦁ Head table or sweetheart table: This area will be captured by professional and amateur photographers alike. 

⦁ Key focal points – Most of the guest attention is going to be in the direction of the head table. Accenting the architectural elements in that area would be my second priority. 

⦁ Highlighting the most interesting room elements.

Pinspot Lighting

Pinspot lighting is used in lighting centerpieces, cake tables, buffets, floral arrangements, or anything that is significant. 

Most of the couples that we work with at wedding events in the Lancaster, PA to Northern VA area spend a great deal of time, care, and money in selecting and even creating the venue décor. Unfortunately, the venue lighting can often result in these impactful pieces blending in. Pinspots ensure that these design elements are the focal points that they deserve to be, especially the wedding cake!

Gobo or Monogram Lighting

The next lighting item on this list is the Gobo or Monogram. This projection style light allows a wedding monogram and date to be projected on a wall or dance floor. The most common is to project the first and last names of the newlyweds and their wedding date. The second most popular is to use initials. 

Whatever you decide, this is your day and this time of lighting not only allows you to see your names tastefully in lights, it makes events such as the first dance more “Royal Wedding” like. You will never have a first dance again. You deserve this!

Those are just the 3 most popular wedding lighting effects. At Perfect Harmony Entertainment we offer lighting services in addition to our Wedding DJ & Corporate DJ Service. We also offer lighting services in addition to our Photo Booth Service.
