Nashville holiday lights strung in the shape of a tree on the waterfrontCall us crazy, but we get excited about holiday lighting in the heat of the summer at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville! We’re particularly overjoyed this year because we’ve been asked to design and install all the holiday lights for Cheekwood Gardens this year! From November 25th through January 1st, you will be able to see what has become a tradition in our local area, as we set the Cheekwood mansion and the surrounding grounds ablaze with over one million lights.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville Can Upgrade or Expand Your Outdoor Lighting, No Matter Who Installed It!

Brentwood TN architectural lightingWe aren’t persnickety about getting the job done at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville. If you want to upgrade, tweak or expand your existing outdoor lighting system, we are up for the task no matter who installed it—even a competitor’s system! That’s right, other lighting contractors may not want to touch outdoor lighting installed by another company, but that’s only because they don’t have the expertise to do it. They are afraid of what they may find or have to deal with, but our techs have seen it all (and have fixed every imaginable problem we have encountered), so it’s a no-brainer for us!

Brentwood TN architectural lighting

Check out this stately home that we recently took on the challenge of a full architectural and landscape revamp to an existing system. Located in beautiful Brentwood, TN, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville gave this property’s  lighting a whole new jolt of pizzazz by adding more light and giving it a much needed upgrade. As you can see, it has extreme WOW-factor now with a dazzling dance between shadows and light.

We are proud to say our work and fixtures absolutely pass the test of time. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is the ONLY outdoor lighting company in our area that is maintaining systems that we installed 25 years ago! We don’t do outdoor lighting as a sideline other types of work. We aren’t gardeners, landscapers, electricians or irrigation companies that dabble in putting a few fixtures in the ground and adding a timer just to make an extra buck–ALL WE DO IS OUTDOOR LIGHTING!

Our lighting designers and architects are specially trained in the art of casting light in a theatrical and exciting manner. We don’t just shove a fixture in the ground without thought of how light can play up every feature of your home and garden. Everything we do carefully planned and poised to showcase a home’s facades, garden paths, decks, water features, pools, patios and more in a romantic wash of light. We are professional, dependable and we only sell American-made systems and fixtures that will stand the test of time.

Nashville backyard festival lighting

We can recreate the same magic in your residential or commercial outdoor space!

Overhead festival lighting is perfect if you have a large patio or deck that begs for visibility across a larger spread.  It provides the ideal unexpected splash for a party feel for a backyard wedding, birthday bash or graduation. We can even alternate red, white and blue bulbs for the ultimate patriotic 4th of July!  Once the party is over, we can remove it or return the bulbs to clear (or any hue you desire). But if you simply cannot get enough of this dreamy style, we can install it permanently so you can enjoy it always. We can totally understand why many customers are captivated by the look, and want to keep it year-round to relive that festive feeling any evening.

Orb Lighting at Arrington Vineyards by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville.

Festival lighting comes in two styles that each gives a different feel to a space. We give you the option of orb or festoon lighting, and we can even do both together for incredible variety. Orb illumination provides an ethereal, fairytale appeal with its fanciful globes that look like they are dancing around the air. They are available in 10″, 12″ and 16″ circumferences sizes in clear, white or an assortment of colors. On the other hand, festoon illumination is string style lights that drape gorgeously from one end of a space to the other with its café vibe.  These can also be done in colors if you choose, or the classic clear most of our customers have come to love. You can see an example of this lighting at The Gulch, where we were asked to swag festival lighting across the alley.

Memphis BBQ Contest Showcases Nationwide Talent and Gets Us Thinking about Illuminating Your Outdoor Kitchen and Grill Area for Summer

Nashville SkylineBeing part of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is something we absolutely love to do as a team. We enjoy meeting clients, being creative with lighting and we are always up to a challenge when it comes to making things work in the most unique situations to give our customers exactly what they want. We also love to support Nashville’s local community events and give back whenever we can.

Springtime means barbecue time!We’ve participated in many fun events such as the Memphis In May BBQ competition with the team at Peg Leg Porkers, which brings in the county’s best BBQ teams for a cook off while raising awareness that provides education, international and economic program opportunities for the people of Memphis. Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it this year, but we wanted to tip our hat to the Peg Leg Porkers team for their stellar effort this year.

The Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest is quite a big deal for those of us with our hearts deep in BBQ, and it’s no different than ranking in a golf major or even the Kentucky Derby. They take barbeque seriously in the Memphis area, so it’s no surprise its home to this event. Any team taking the top three slots garners some pretty significant bragging rights throughout the entire USA and the BBQ world. Judging is serious business and determining the final winner in various categories is quite the heart-stopper.

Peg Leg Porker

To taste some fabulous BBQ in Nashville, definitely drop by Peg Leg Porker in the Gulch for some certified world-class barbecue and to congratulate the team.

Nashville’s own  Peg Leg Porker founder and owner, Carey Bringle, is a veteran of the Memphis in May contestant, but has never ended up in one of the coveted top-3 finalist spots.But this year was different as Bringle fielded two teams, one in his traditional category of Pork Shoulder and a second smaller team competing in Whole Hog. A brand-new competition trailer hauled everything they needed to compete, including one of his new line of smokers that he is selling, specifically the BMF-200. Fantastically, they came in third place and faced some stiff competition!

Task lighting over an outdoor kitchen makes food preparation effortless!

Task lighting within an outdoor kitchen makes food preparation effortless!

If you live in Music City and you want to get your own BBQ groove going, we can add real value to your backyard grilling and smoking experience thanks to task lighting that makes the job easy no matter what time you are flipping meat. Your outdoor kitchen and deck/patio area will not only look great, but it will work hard for you to ensure you know exactly when the brisket is done and ready to eat. Proper visibility to cook, serve and dine is an important part of any outdoor barbeque zone, so why not let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville help you get it summer ready so you can show off your grilling skills to family and friends.

Huston Station Nashville lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville used special event festoon lighting to add romance to this wedding held inside Huston Station in downtown Nashville.

Garden and walkway lighting safeguards every step your guests take around the property. Whether they are walking around your pool deck, patio, to your home, up or down your steps, etc., we will make their journey from one area to another a safer one.  Additionally, we will make your home, party tent or celebration site easy to find no matter what the hour. We offer orb globes that can be suspended most anywhere in your space or trees that give a cool other-worldly feel that is totally unexpected with their floating effect. Festival style lighting hung above huge spans such as a dance floor, patio or deck allows your wedding or party guests to eat, boogie and simply hang underneath and sophisticated setting.

Nashville outdoor special event lighting

Our customers tell us time and time again how much functional space lighting will reveal. “It’s like that part of my yard didn’t existing at night because it’s not lit up at night”. For an outdoor party, this is an important benefit. You don’t want your guests on top of each other when there’s plenty of room just begging for illumination. Proper lighting can really open up that area for use and allow guests to “spread out in the space” comfortably. Consider an outdoor event under a tent. If only the tented area is illuminated, everyone will stay under the tent. But, perhaps there’s adjacent functional landscape area, or even a gazebo or patio which could double as a dance floor. Lighting extended areas within your landscape will encourage guests to use the areas beyond your primary location adding space to your event location — and mingle!
