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.

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!

Nashville Post showcases our stunning festival lighitng completed in the Gulch!

Nashville Post

Our permanent festival lighting installation in “the Gulch” recently featured in the Nashville Post.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville is super proud to light up the evening sky in many of the most prominent commercial spaces in and around our beloved city.We are humbled and proud to have contributed the outdoor lighting on  venerable landmarks such as the Country Music Hall of Fame, Arrington Vineyards and even lighting up the Christmas tree at the capitol building. It’s a pretty big deal to us that Nashville entrusts us to illuminate these important spaces. The Gulch is one of the hottest parts of town with nifty restaurants, apartments and shopping. Its industrial warehouse look of the past is a big draw for hipsters looking for a cool way to spend some time in Nashville, and there is always a ton of fun that can be had in this part of town. We were honored to be asked to add some evening allure with the addition of overhead permanent festival lighting that casts a  glow in the alleys during the evenings. The Nashville Post recently profiled the Gulch with a great photo that clearly showcases these awesome fixtures that look just as striking during the daylight hours, and they definitely fit into the industrial vibe and perfectly match the brick on the buildings and the concrete walkways.

If you think these overhead festival lights are great, we can also incorporate them into any commercial setting such as over an outdoor restaurant patio for a European café vibe or even the clubhouse pool for a pretty watery sparkle after nightfall. Residential homes can also benefit from the same treatment over a patio, within a covered porch or veranda or even over your outdoor kitchen area for a delightful look that will give you plenty of visibility.

Our festival lights are commercial grade and made in the USA especially for us. They are meant to last season after season and are suspended by a strong wire so they do not sag over time.  We offer clear, white or an array of colors with bulbs, so you can keep the look classic like at The Gulch or jazz things up with a stimulating colorful vibe. Best of all, you can change out the bulbs at any time if you enjoy switching things up during different seasons of the year.

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

We can match any theme or ambiance that you are trying to exude to your clients—whether it’s industrial and sophisticated or elegant and graceful that is meant to stand out and turn heads. We will work with you to capture whatever atmosphere  you desire and fits your brand.

Nashville Decorative Outdoor Lighting Delivers Endless Evening (and Daytime) Appeal with a New Twist

Nashville cafe-inspired outdoor lightingDecorative outdoor lighting is the new rage in design. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has a broad range of chic and trendy lights that offer something totally different from what traditional landscapers offer that come from those big home improvement stores. Our fixtures are custom-made specifically for us and proudly made in America with high quality commercial parts. We do not sell or install inferior made products made of plastic or other low-grade components that won’t survive the season before needing replacement. Our fixtures stand the test of time, and Mother Nature, to provide years of unbridled enjoyment.

If you are still sporting an outdated or aging halogen outdoor lighting system, it’s time to check out how much outdoor lighting has changed in recent years. Modern LED bulbs cut down on energy consumption and provide a long life, and they come in all sorts of unique genres that give lots of different benefits and appeal.

Permanent Festoon lights (aka festival or cafe lights) can be installed across a covered porch or deck and provide plenty of visibility as an overhead light source that delivers a swagged romantic lighting effect. They have a party feel like you’d see in outdoor festival settings or that lovely corner cafe you visiting while on vacation — we offer them in either white or in colored bulbs that are housed in small globes and we can change out the lights whenever you want a totally different effect such as during the holiday season.

Nashville Outdoor Orb LightingOrb lights are a twist on festival lighting that kick it up a notch since the globe housing that surrounds is much bigger. You can choose either 10, 12 or 16 inch globes in size (or vary them and mix it up) and it looks like these ethereal spheres are floating through the air in a mystical way. You can also get these in white, clear or in multiple colors and the effect is truly breathtaking and unusual.

Nashville decorative outdoor lighting Normally, we hide our ground level fixtures so they are very hard for anyone looking around your property to see. In some cases, the fixtures are just as pretty as the light they cast and have incredible artistic value—and this is absolutely the case with our Attraction lighting series. Custom made for us; these dazzling metal fixtures have incredible sculptural flair that sends rays of light dancing around your walkways, a retaining wall or even your home’s walls. If you are fascinated by the use of light as an art source, then these lights are right up your alley as they throw immensely interesting patterns of twirling light around an outdoor space. They even look fantastic during the day thanks to their interesting shapes and cut-outs, and no can argue how decadent these look in comparison to boring landscape lights you see in most yards.

Decorative lighting can become a work of art in the garden and landscape.

If that’s not enough for you, our Starry Light fixtures uses hologram technology to shoot pinpoints of light that can be elegantly sprayed all over your home, trees or pool. They are perfect during Christmas time because it avoids the nightmare of wires and string lights that have to be taken down after the holidays. This clever light fixture plugs right in and comes in red, green, purple and blue, and it casts a fantasy land of shimmering light wherever you want it. Take a peek:

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.

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.
