Charleston wedding uplighting by AV Connections at Charlestowne Landing: Behind the Event Scenes

Charleston wedding uplighting by AV Connections

AV Connections was so pleased to be the Charleston wedding uplighting rental supplier selected by Blue Planet Green Events on behalf of a fabulous couple who were married last week. Our Wedding Lighting Design team took the blog behind the scenes of this wedding set up to give you a peek into the preparations at our wedding venue, Founder’s Hall at Charlestowne Landing. Charlestowne Landing is both a park and historic site in the West Ashley section of Charleston, about four miles from downtown.

Founder’s Hall is the perfect mix of modern and traditional architecture brought together in a peaceful park setting deep inside Charlestowne landing. We wanted to create an amazing wedding atmosphere, respect the wedding budget, show off all Founder’s Hall has to offer, and have a completely thrilled new married couple to wave goodnight to around at the end of the enving. We had great partners in achieving the perfect wedding lighting for this newer venue in this very historic location along the Ashley River: Blue Planet Green Events accomplish beautiful, eco-sensitive weddings which are unforgettable.

For this Charleston wedding, we provided twenty white can uplighting fixtures with custom color gels in the shade of soft amber and golden amber on the drape around the reception room. AV Connections also provided the white and champagne colored draping for the wall and decorative backdrop you see in the photos. We also modified the installed lighting fixtures hanging from the ceiling in Founders Hall, by covering them with the custom color gels to soften the ambiance of the room
