Frequently Asked Questions

  • All brides have a picture in their head of what their wedding and reception should look like. This mental picture is created from wedding experiences in the past, movies, and pictures from bridal magazines. The next question is how do you create in real life that picture that is in your mind? Your wedding colors, table settings, centerpieces, wedding cake and other wedding decor are all important elements to your wedding. Wedding Lighting accents and draws the guests attention to specific elements in your wedding. Lighting also creates an atmosphere by helping to set the mood of the occasion. Remember a wedding with bright, impersonal, and overbearing lighting will create an informal and banquet hall setting for your guests. On the other hand, a wedding with precise color, intensity and location will create that perfectly elegant occasion. Setting just the right mood and highlighting the most important elements of your wedding is the essence of why you need wedding lighting.

  • We travel through all of Metro Denver and north to Fort Collins.

  • Many people ask us about the process involved with booking a lighting package. Below is a brief overview of what you can expect from the initial inquiry all the way to finalizing your design and signing the contract.

    * Once you contact us we will request the date, time, and location of your event to make sure that it is compatible with our schedule.
    * We will then talk with you about your vision. We will ask about things such as the style of your wedding and what type of mood you want to set. These details enable us to create a unique design that will fit both your vision and your budget.
    * After grasping your vision, we will then put together an estimate. Once you have received your estimate, we go over it detail by detail in order to ensure that we are achieving your desired vision. We can also meet with you at your venue to show you some examples.
    * Once we finalize the overall look, we will send you a revised estimate. Following, your review and acceptance of this estimate, we will send you a contract, at which point a 50% deposit is due and the remainder is due 5 days before the event.

  • There are plenty of DJ companies that claim to provide lighting, but that is not their specialty. You could always go and pick flowers for your wedding instead of using a florist, but there would probably be a dramatic difference in quality. Just as Golden Corral offers a steak, it is not the same as steak from Ruth's Chris. Quality products and experienced installers lead to a perfect wedding experience.

  • Yes, all we need is a computer file of the image you would like to use with the Gobo. We would prefer .png, .jpg or .pdf files of the image. We can also provide design services.

  • Depending on the package you choose, this will vary from 1-4 hours. Tear down lasts anywhere from 1-3 hours. Setup time and tear down are included in the contract agreement for no additional cost.

  • Yes, we also provide lighting services for corporate events, prom lighting, bar mitzvah's, Quince's, and private parties.

  • Simply send us color samples, a small piece of the fabric will work just fine.

  • That depends on the setting if we set up lighting for a public event you are more than welcome to attend. However, If the event is a private affair, then unfortunately you can not attend. We focus all our attention on the client booked for the day and we always respect our clients requests for privacy.

Everyone is great to work with. They email ahead to let you know when they are coming to put up the lights, and they do the same before they take the lights down. I love that they store all the lights for the following year!

I absolutely adore Denver Illuminations!!! They give prompt estimates and deliver exactly what I ask and then some! Going above and beyond, they kindly put together our light-up snowman (and even put it away!) while they were setting up the rest of lights that we rent from them. I look ...
