We at Got Light are ecstatic to have been named BizBash National 2014 Event Style Awards Winners for Best Event Lighting Design for our Redwood Forest Wedding!
We are celebrating this honor with our amazing staff and crew who made this enormous undertaking happen! And a big thank you to our event partners Paula Le Duc Fine Catering, Ken Fulk Inc., Preston Bailey, and Zephyr Tents!!
“Receiving our first BizBash award, as determined by fellow event professionals, is an extremely flattering honor,” says co-owner Jon Retsky. “Over the past ten years, our success has been built on creatively transforming empty spaces by employing innovative solutions and designs,” explains co-owner Russell Holt. “We are proud Got Light has been recognized as a national leader in event lighting design.”
The bride and groom were married under a glade of towering 500-year-old redwoods amid a soft, radiant glow. Later in the night, the team turned the forest into a high-energy dance party with dramatic lighting and colorful moving lights illuminating the canopy of trees, while fanciful landscape lighting immersed the surrounding hillsides. Nearly all of the lighting fixtures for the event were specially suspended by Got Light, under the guidance of a professional arborist consultant, in the natural forest without damaging it and without creating the risk of fire.
