Lighting FAQ


What makes you different from other lighting companies out there?
We use energy friendly LED technology which means two things, it is good for the environment and good for you. You have over 1 million colors to choose from and since the lighting is computerized, it will change as your mood progresses.

Majority of other companies use high power consumption par’s. These little things get very hot and are considered a fire hazard. Also they stay the same color the entire night. Some companies purchase them for $15 a light and rent them to you for $45 a light first time around. We do not use par’s so our prices are very reasonable.

Also since this company is part of Encore Event Group, you can bundle a Modern DJ or Michigan Photo Booth with your package to receive huge discounts.

Do you provide lighting services for events besides wedding receptions?
Yes, we also do corporate applications, company logos, prom lighting, and private parties. Popular lighting solutions for the dance floor is computer lighting and light pillars.

Can I come and see the lighting at your next event?
If the event is a private affair, then unfortunately you can not come to watch us perform. We focus all our attention on the client booked for the day and not the next one that we are going to book. You would not want to have a complete stranger come uninvited to your special celebration, so expect the same consideration for the clients we book. Instead we recommend you to schedule a meeting in our comfortable studio to demo lighting.

Since pricing depends on so many factors, it is only fair to ask you a couple questions first. Our goal is to neither over or under quote you. Our pricing is set in stone.
