Shawna Chezem contacted us last February looking for some lighting to enhance her June wedding reception at the Botanical Center Event Canopy. We met with her at the venue shortly after the big blizzard of 2011. Shawna looked at some various up-lighting colors and configurations and she decided upon 20 magenta (purple) up-lights arranged in an angled pattern.
It was a great choice. Shawna and Joel Swain’s reception hall came alive with color and light. Guests arrived in the events canopy shortly before 8PM after an outdoor Botanical Gardens ceremony and were awed by the purple lighting and the permanently installed white lights in the canopy.
Since I had previously set aside June 11 as a night off from spinning tunes it was convenient for Robin and I to deliver, set up and remove the lighting ourselves.
Shawna’s reception was scheduled to end at 1 AM. We arrived to remove the lights around 12:30 AM, in time to enjoy watching the party as it concluded. It’s always fun to watch a party when another DJ is spinning tunes. Shawna and Joel’s DJ was a family friend, from Cedar Rapids I think. Guests were enjoying the dance floor right up to the last song.
Thanks Shawna and Joel for having us Light Up Your Wedding!
