Nashville wedding & special event lighting.

Hosting special events to acknowledge and celebrate the important people and milestones of your life brings abundant personal joy. You work hard planning out all the details for the big events and the small ones, like weddings, graduations, birthdays, family reunions, job promotions and even fundraising events for your favorite charity, club or organization. You pick the when and where, the food, the music, the photographer, the color scheme and decorations…but what about the lighting? Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville provides temporary lighting for all your outdoor (and indoor) events you have planned.

For an outdoor party you can extend your “party” space with our special event lighting. With the right lighting your guests can spread out into more of your back yard beyond the deck or patio. Our temporary special event lighting (as well as our permanent landscape and garden lighting designs) provide ambiance and make your back yard come to life after nightfall. It opens up plenty of additional space for your guests to circulate more easily and feel more comfortable. Lighting extended areas will encourage guests to use the areas beyond your primary location adding space to your event location.

Temporary LED lighting fixtures in Nashville

We have a variety of outdoor lighting fixtures available for temporary use or permanent installation. Our fixtures are also available in LED.

When hosting an outdoor event, safety is always an important consideration especially in the evening. Backyard terrains are grassy and often uneven, which can sometimes make sure footing uncertain. Without the proper lighting, your nighttime event mixed with high heel shoes and guests engaged in conversation as they stroll, opportunities for disaster are sure to arise. Make these areas safe for all guests (even those in heels) with ambient light for your grassy areas, gravel paths and cobbled surfaces. Proper illumination of the entry path and the party will not only enhance the safety of your event, but it will set the mood as well, making it an enjoyable evening for all.

What is a special event without pictures? How many times have you been heartbroken over candid photos of your family gathering or birthday party that weren’t taken in a properly lit area? Those are missed moments that you can’t get back. Whether you’re hiring a professional photographer, or have everyone using their cell phone cameras to snap lots of candid shots throughout the party, the right lighting is essential for getting it all on film with good color and clear faces full of expression.

How saying “I Do” takes on a whole new light: Nashville special event lighting for the June bride

wedding lighting

Say “I Do” to our special event lighting for your special day!

Nothing is more memorable than your wedding day. It signifies the beginning to a new chapter in your life. When it comes to choosing the venue for your wedding, times have changed. With the wedding season underway, more brides are opting for outdoor weddings, evening weddings and wedding venues that take the traditional ceremony to a whole new level. Part of the reason couples are choosing a setting that is less traditional is the freedom it allows for self-expression in designing and setting the mood for your special event.

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

A crucial part of creating romance and a memorable atmosphere to look back on and cherish for years to come is the manner in which you design your wedding venue. In order to convey a theme, or personal style of the bride and groom every facet of your nuptials takes planning. This can be to the color of the paper goods used at your reception, to the blooms you choose for you floral arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces and even the band you book to play your reception. As part of this planning, never overlook the role proper lighting can play in the enjoyment and success of your wedding.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville provides temporary lighting for events and special occasions such as weddings, outdoor proms, graduation and birthday celebrations, family reunions and other outdoor (and indoor) events you have planned.

You’ve probably considered the benefits proper lighting for your event will provide, as well as the downfall of not having lighting. With this in mind, here is some food for thought: 

  • Nashville professional landscape and garden lighting

    Lighting extended areas will allow guests to use the areas beyond your primary event location.

    The right lighting can add space: That’s right — One thing our customers tell us time and time again is how much more they and their guests use their back yards once they add permanent outdoor lighting. “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 even more important consideration. 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 an adjacent gazebo or patio which could double as a dance floor. Lighting extended areas will encourage guests to use the areas beyond your primary location adding space to your event location.

  • The right lighting can enhance safety: Safety is always an important consideration when hosting an outdoor event, especially in the evening. Grassy areas can hold numerous pitfalls that can make sure footing difficult. Then,add the darkness of night, and high heel shoes to the equation and without proper lighting you have a recipe for disaster! With proper lighting, traversing grass, gravel paths and bumpy surfaces such as a cobbled walkway (even in heels) can be made safe. Proper illumination of the entry path and the party will enhance the safety and ultimate enjoyment of all your guests in the evening. Lighting will ensure your event goes off without a hitch!

    Romance is in the air – have you thought about the lighting for your special day yet?

    The right lighting enhances evening photography: Maybe you haven’t considered the impact a darkened venue or landscape will have on the quality of your wedding photography. But the lighting can impact the quality of those pictures you will hold dear for an entire lifetime. Good outdoor lighting renders colors and images in a way similar to how they are seen during the day. If it’s a wedding, imagine the difference between outdoor evening photos with good illumination and without. The same applies if you’re hosting a graduation party or family reunion and likely won’t see those relatives in attendance again for many years, you want to capture all of the moments that will turn into memories. Good lighting will help make this possible!

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville specializes in special event lighting, including wedding lighting, and permanent landscape and festival lighting. Whether you choose an indoor venue, or an outdoor wedding our special event lighting will ensure your wedding day is memorable. Our large selection of fixtures, including festival lighting and LED lighting combine with our experience in utilizing unique lighting techniques enable us to create an atmosphere that embraces beautiful beginnings and happily-ever-after’s.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville uses sustainability practices and practices what they preach.

Our approach to a greener workplace promotes sustainability, which affects our world on a global level.

Nowadays, everyone you talk to is discussing the importance of living in a world where sustainability practices are key to preserving our environment on a global level. Small changes in the way you live and function on a daily basis can impact the entire planet in the big scheme of things. This includes the way you function on a professional level as well. Discussing the importance of sustainable living practices is one thing, but ” talking the talk” and “walking the walk” is another. Outdoor Living Perspectives of Nashville is instilling sustainable practices in our everyday professional duties in an effort to make a habit out of trying to better our lives and the lives of our grandchildren in years to come.

We offer our clients a way to invest in tomorrow through the use of “green” outdoor lighting technologies such as LED and LCA, (lighting control automation), so we,along with our parent company, and our local manufacturing company ( B&B Mfg.), are practicing what we preach about sustainable living practices. We are operating under a “green” approach to our workplace by recycling materials such as copper fixtures. We also recycle all the paper in our office and our goal is to allocate a paperless system in the near future by incorporating tablets with each of our field workers. We are also moving towards an automatic bill pay system so we save paper by not having to send out invoices each month. We are installing solar panels on our building as well, to reflect the importance of less impact on the environment by reducing power consumption.

Solar_Panels_LR_5

We are installing solar panels on our building to decrease energy usage in our workplace, and lessen our direct impact on the environment.

By working in a field of expertise, such as outdoor lighting, that now has the technology to offer homeowners a more sustainable living product, such as an upgradeable LED bulbs that never get discarded in a land-fill but can be refurbished to reuse, it is a real “no-brainer” to begin at the core of our business. The workplace. Hopefully, each employee, delivery-person, and individual whom frequents our office will have these sustainability practices “rub off” on he/she and take a little piece of that realization back home with them creating a ripple-effect of sustainability initiatives to live by.  Remember, that what we do today, will affect tomorrow.

Our LCA technology gets you out of the dark and adds confidence to your lifestyle

The House

A safe house is a well-lit house. LCA makes this possible from driveway to den.

Do you cringe when entering your driveway and garage area late at night because you know you will have to fumble to find that back door key in the minimal moonlight? Do you worry that your home will become a target for thieves while you and your family are away on summer vacation? If these scenarios sound familiar to you then Outdoor Lighting  of Nashville can help. Our lighting control automation, or LCA, technology can make you life easier and offer you the conveniences that you never dreamed possible.

One of the features that is available with our LCA technology is what we refer to as ” the driveway sensor”. This feature puts an end to coming home to a dark house and can’t find the keys situation you may be finding yourself in. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville programs the lights to automatically come on when you enter your driveway at night. Not only are you ensured safe passage right to your door, but we can program the feature to automatically turn on any multitude of chosen exterior and interior lights as well. This will safely take you from the top of the driveway to the safety of your home interior after a hard day with no worry or struggle, just peace of mind.

Another wonderful feature we offer is what we call “someone’s home”. This feature can be programmed with both your interior and exterior lights to give the appearance that someone is home, by simultaneously cutting on both indoor and outdoor lighting to mimic the pattern in correspondence with someone walking around their home at night. These lights are programmed so if the home is being watched, no one is the wiser, and your home is safe while you and your family is away having fun.

A great feature we offer using LCA technology is called the “safe entry” feature. This feature works much like the driveway sensor feature, the difference is the technology is programmed into a key fab you can place on your key chain to turn on both interior and exterior lighting at the simple touch of a button.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville proudly offers these LCA features  and many more to our valued outdoor lighting customers to make their lives hassle free, and their home safer. Remember: a well-lit home is a safer home indeed.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville offers you the whole enchilada with all the trimmings.

The ultimate in smart home technology is lighting control.

Would you buy a car just because it offers you the convenience of a remote control ignition that could be started before you walk out the door to get into your car in the morning? You probably would not let that be the deciding factor for you to purchase a particular car. But in the same token, finding the perfect car with the perfect features to suit you would only seem more appealing when it came with all the bells and whistles, like a remote ignition.  Most consumers don’t purchase items or services just to get the extras, but when the extras are part of the available package it can truly sway you in one direction or the other.

Many analogies can be made in terms of making the decision to go with a product or service that offers you the convenience of hands-free or remote features. But until you see an individual need tied to these features personally, you may likely view them as nothing more than mere “extras”. Outdoor lighting is one such example. The technologies of outdoor lighting are advancing rapidly and with those advancements come high-tech automation that is geared to make your home safer and the available way to control your outdoor lighting much more convenient.

Control your lighting with your smart phone, network your lights!!!

Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about turning the lights on and off in the evening? Wouldn’t it be great to have a way to turn the lights on for your daughter who is running late returning from her movie date with her girlfriends while you are still out to dinner? How about being able to program your lights to come on and off at different intervals while vacationing to give the appearance that someone is home without having to depend on a friend or neighbor to do it for you while they are feeding Fido or watering your ferns while you are away? If an easy, convenient answer to addressing all of these situations with simplicity seems too good to be true, it actually isn’t.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville creates magic with holiday lighting

Can you imagine the memories a Christmas lighting display like this will create?

We are quickly approaching the time of year when our thoughts turn to the smell of home-baked goodies, busy shoppers running to and fro with presents adorned with ribbons of red and green, and the way seeing a beautifully lit Christmas lighting display makes us feel inside. I remember as a child my parents would pile all of us in the car right after Thanksgiving and we would set out in search of neighborhoods with mesmerizing and memorable holiday lighting displays. This memory still brings a smile to my face when I remember seeing those lights for the first time each year from the eyes of a child, the clarity of this memory is unforgettable and still makes me feel happy to reminisce.

This memory, this moment in time is what homeowners wish to achieve when they set out each year to create an outdoor lighting display of their own. The problem with this is that many times what the homeowner visualizes and what actually comes to fruition are two different things. This can be because of time constraints, lack of design knowledge or just simply because they don’t know where to begin. That is where we come into play…

A few outdoor lights on a string will not create a memorable holiday lighting display, but we can. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville offers a holiday lighting program that will take the guess-work out of designing your Christmas outdoor lights this year. We design, order, install, remove and store your Christmas lighting display for you and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the season with the ones you love.

No more rituals of turning on the lights one strand at a time.
