Transforming A Tent With Lighting

Kirkbrides North Canton Tent Reception

On July 7, 2012, Rock The House Entertainment provided lighting for a Kirkbrides Wedding Planners Reception inside an Everything Tented Tent in North Canton, Ohio. Those are the facts. Before that could happen, though, our teams worked together in heat of around 105 degrees for two days in order to get the perfect look our client was looking for. Creating a vibrant club-like atmosphere in the middle of a field doesn’t happen through magic. Our teams collaborated by working hand in hand to create a venue in tough conditions because we’re committed to creating the best event locations where and whenever our clients choose.

Kirkbrides really put together an exceptional team for a wedding reception. Setting up an beautiful outdoor reception venue for hundreds of guests is rarely easy but Kirkbrides knew who has the most experience doing it RIGHT and chose their partners accordingly. This is at the heart of what great event planners do. They know how to organize and coach a team of professionals that are right for the job. Knowing who has the experience, passion, and creativity necessary for the client’s needs is a difficult task that they don’t get enough credit for.

In addition to knowing who is needed to execute the functions of the event correctly, the Kirkbrides team did an excellent job with the myriad of details that this beautiful wedding had. Our lighting designer was on-hand for the entire event to create the specific vision of Kirkbrides and the client. In addition to our uplights, dance floor lighting design, decorative gobo lighting designs on the tent ceiling, gobo monogram on the dance floor, and generators for power, we also provided our elegant wedding reception chandeliers. These chandeliers are a great way to take an outdoor event to the next level of class as distinction.

Let us show you why we should be part of your team – Rock The House Entertainment Group

Wedding Lighting at Shaker Heights Country Club

Wedding Reception Teamwork

When Kirkbrides Wedding Planning calls, we answer! Kirkbrides put together an AMAZING team for this Shaker Heights Country Club wedding reception. It’s such a pleasure to work with other professionals at the top of their game. No aspect of this wedding wasn’t absolutely fantastic. You could instantly tell that every detail was thought of which lead to a smooth and very FUN party.

As the lighting professionals on this event, it was our task to create the client’s unique vision for this already breath-taking venue ballroom. This couple was looking for a effect that was beyond just uplighting. Our uplights helped wash the room in their specific colors but it was our on-site lighting designer who created an experience that paired with the live band’s performance. Jerry Bruno Production’s “The Orchestra” coordinated their set list with our lighting designer in an effort that took full advantage of the their strengths.

For a list of all the great event professionals that worked together on this wedding, see below.
