1024 1012 Pacific Event Services

Choosing a wedding theme is an important step for every couple about to get married. After all, you want your wedding décor to look amazing, and to be more than a representative for your personality and love story – and having a wedding theme to unify all the elements is a more than essential when it comes to this.

How do you make sure your wedding lighting is consistent with your eclectic vintage wedding? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

Candles. There’s nothing prettier than candlelight – so if you want to add a dash of romance and beauty to your wedding, you should definitely use candles for lighting. The best way to incorporate them in an eclectic vintage wedding theme is by focusing on the candle holders – you need something with a distinct vintage flair, whether it’s from the Roaring Twenties, or a more ambiguous vintage touch.

  • Edison light bulbs. Very popular these days, Edison light bulb arrangements are ideal for brides and grooms who want to be really unique. Because of their old-school appeal, these light bulbs can be perfectly incorporated into a wedding with a vintage wedding theme – and no, you don’t have to incorporate Victorian design motifs all over (this is where the “eclectic” part comes in, right?). However, we do suggest you make sure you create a well-balanced look if you want to create a nice, welcoming vibe for your wedding.
  • What could be more glamorous than chandeliers? Gorgeous, unique, and definitely elegant, chandeliers can be incorporated into the most surprising wedding settings – and they are perfect for couples who want their big day to really shine. From barn weddings to museums, a lot of spaces are perfect for chandeliers – so don’t shy away and take the eclectic approach to vintage wedding décor!
  • Table lamps. Bring that bedroom coziness into your wedding by placing vintage table lamps on each of your wedding tables. With some flowers and great attention to detail, the lamps can really turn into splendid centerpieces – and they are ideal for someone who wants a cozy, welcoming and quite an informal wedding. Plus, you can always mix and match them to create a very eclectic, interesting appeal!

Regardless of the lighting type you may choose for your wedding, remember to pay attention to details and to choose elements that truly represent you. At the end of the day, fashion will go away and trends will fade out – but your wedding pictures are there to remember you of the most beautiful day of your life, and you really need to make sure everything about it mirrors you, your love story, and your personality!

A Rustic Wedding String Light Lightscape

Farmhouse Charm and String Lights featured on Wedding Chicks

930 620 Pacific Event Services

It was an honor to be a part of Morgan and Kevin’s big day, and we are thrilled that their ceremony was featured on Wedding Chicks. Rustic, rural, and soft were the descriptors we used to create an airy yet timeless lightscape for them.

Here is an excerpt from Wedding Chicks:

“Our style vision was probably best described as ‘Rustic-chic’. My husband grew up in a more rural area and I didn’t so we wanted to incorporate a little of both sides into our big day. Our color palette vision was just more neutrals, sage greens and other softer colors.”

We are thrilled that Pacific Event Services was featured on Style Me Pretty! This past April, Shivani and David celebrated their wedding at the Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica, CA surrounded by color, natural elements, and love from family and friends. Their ceremony was a blend of rich heritages; their reception was a culmination of all their cultures. We set out to create a lightscape that balanced the neutral wooden and botanical details, as well as showcasing their colorful fusion.

Here’s an excerpt from the Style Me Pretty feature:

“The ceremony, officiated by Shivani’s brother Vishal, tied in traditions from Hinduism, Catholicism, and Judaism. Shivani and David did an incredible job of incorporating their family heritages throughout the wedding weekend.”

How to Incorporate Lighting Into Your Rustic Glam Look

900 599 Pacific Event Services

Rustic Glam weddings are a huge trend – and you really do have all the reasons to love them. Somewhere in between “country” and “urban”, “casual” and “elegant”, and “vintage” and “modern”, this wedding theme is taking over the bridal world in full force.

Do you want to have a Rustic Glam wedding too? If yes, you will definitely want to decorate it in a beautiful way – and lighting is crucial when it comes to this. How to incorporate pretty lighting into a Rustic Glam wedding? Read on and find your inspiration.

  • Arrangements made with Edison light bulbs. Thought Edison light bulbs are heading towards complete annihilation? Think again, they can look absolutely amazing when used in a creative way. For instance, imagine a long wooden table covered with delicious treats, with an arrangement made with clusters of Edison bulbs hovering above the table. Doesn’t that sound good?
  • Mismatched floating lanterns. Old-school but adorable, lanterns are always a great choice for a countryside wedding. Want to breathe a bit of originality into the idea, though? Arrange them in a mismatching manner on the ceiling of your wedding tent – they will look amazing.
  • You may think the elegance of chandeliers has nothing to do with Rustic Glam weddings – but it can work out pretty well. The chandeliers will add a dash of sophistication and luxury to your barn or country wedding, and they will create an eclectic feel everyone will absolutely love.
  • Bistro lights. Probably the most popular type of lighting among rustic wedding brides, bistro lights are more than versatile. You can arrange them for a splendid wedding ceremony backdrop, you can arrange them as a “teepee” made with lights, you can write words with them, or you can simply use them to add a little bit of light and beauty to an otherwise simpler space.
  • Want the ultimate romantic light at your wedding? Opt for candles – but not the traditional way. Take large, white candles, and place them in spray-painted bottles for a touch of uniqueness. If you want to paint them in golden sparkle, it could create a truly beautiful, casual-glamorous look for your flower arrangements.

Despite the type of lighting you may choose, we strongly recommend you to work with true professionals in this field. Not only will they know how to pull it off, but it is safer for you and for your wedding guests too.

Love In Motion Styled Shoot On Grace Ormonde

600 400 Pacific Event Services

We are thrilled to be featured on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style for the “Love In Motion” editorial shoot that we were recently part of! From the dramatic hanging floral displays by Shawna Yamamoto Event Design to the romantic tablescape designed by Hylah White Special Events, we loved providing lighting that helped set the tone for the gorgeous shoot.

The inspiration behind this editorial shoot was the concept of ‘Love in Motion’.  Love is an action, which makes it a constant motion.  Since love is something you do and feel, we wanted the action of affection to be reflected in all elements of the decor from beginning to end, and Duke Photos perfectly captured just that.

We had the saying ‘Your love moves me’ in calligraphy by Calligraphy by Katrina as the ceremony back drop as not only a nod to the vision but as a reminder us just how powerful of love is.  The bridesmaids gowns by Kennedy Blue were rich in color and really made the custom couture gown and veil by RMINE radiate.  Pacific Event Services really set the mood for the event with their spectacular lighting, making sure to highlight the fabulous venue space A The P. ” – Hylah White Special Events

Event Signage Ideas

1024 684 Pacific Event Services

Planning a big event soon? We bet you want every single detail to look absolutely flawless – and we definitely understand the importance of this. Regardless of whether it’s a birthday party, an anniversary, a corporate event, or a wedding, this is a big moment in your life and you want to celebrate it in high style.

Of course, you will want to include one of those fun event signs and messages too – but how do you do it? We have gathered some of the most popular ideas for you – so read on and inspire yourself.

  • Neon lights. Perfect for those of you who want their message to really pop! It may be a simple “Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad”, or it may be the date of your wedding. If you want your signage to be more than energizing, neon lights are absolutely perfect. And yes, they can be worked into a more elegant décor too – but you do have to use your creativity for something really nice.
  • Video mapping. This is one of the freshest newcomers in the event signage and lighting tech spectrum – but it is by far one of the most impressive ones too. A beautiful video containing colors, stars, words, and basically everything you want can be projected on a white object – such as the cake, the wedding dress, or any other part of the venue. This idea will make your event look absolutely mesmerizing.
  • Twinkle lights. Those adorable little lights everyone’s including in their outdoor weddings and events? Yep, they can be used as signage too. You don’t have to be very thorough with the message – a simple “LOVE” or the name of your company can be written “in the air” or on a wall with the help of twinkle lights. They will look so pretty, so beautiful, and they will create such a cozy atmosphere!
  • The already classic blackboard is another great way of adding powerful messages to your event. If you want to make it pop, you can decorate the blackboard with lights too – or, why not, you can use classic backstage mirrors as your “canvas” too. Either way, these ideas are perfect for those who love a casual, old-school, but smart-and-sassy event.

The sky is the only limit you have when it comes to event signage – so don’t be afraid to step out of the box and think of ideas that are totally unique. We bet it will look impressive for your wedding!
