Lighting is one of the most important elements of your wedding prep. From the ceremony to the reception, having the right lighting for your venue is essential. Unfortunately, it often gets overlooked. Today I’ll share with you an example of what a professional lighting set up looks like. The good news is that even without a huge budget, you can still use simple lighting equipment and techniques to make sure your venue is looking Instagram-ready. This example is taken from a recent wedding at the Water Oasis, a beautiful venue in Newberg, Oregon. It’s important to note that this lighting solution was created specifically for this wedding, and took into consideration the fact it was partially indoors and partially outdoors. Every venue has its own special requirements and you need to work with a vendor who has the flexibility to create solutions tailored specifically for your needs.
