Last night Mayra and I went over to a party for the new event space at Levy Lighting, which is great for a rehearsal dinner, engagement party or birthday party. I'll be honest, we both gave up wine and beer for lent this year, so when we get to go to these event industry events, we are paying REALLY close attention to the party since we're not really paying attention to the bar!
Last night, that worked in our favor, because Levy Lighting does some of the more innovative things in special event lighting that I've seen. We got to chat with Ira Levy, who founded the company and said that he's found that brides are really starting to embrace lighting. And I have to agree-even in this climate, when people are cutting budgets, more and more brides are starting to earmark some money for some uplights and pin-spots...at the very least. And if you are bringing in some lighting anyway, why not consider a projection like this chandelier above a table of candles and escort cards in lieu of a traditional floral piece? Net-net, the cost likely works out to be similar.
Here are some pictures of us with our friend Julia from Classic Party Rental and some of the inspiring Light Innovations over at Levy!
