You’ve already selected an incredible wedding venue in the Charleston, SC area, if the ceremony or reception will run into darkness, you need equally incredible specialty wedding lighting Charleston SC. Today we chose to share before-the-event photographs of a wedding which took place at a private residence along the Stono River on John’s Island, SC. John Island is a rural section of the City of Charleston, home to great wide residential estates and our own farming community. Homes on Johns Island are often blessed with a lot of green space, as this estate is. It is AV Connections job to create a fully lit event once night falls. Every location is different, and those which are not regular event venue pose a special set of wedding lighting challenges.

Often, crystal chandeliers need to be hand-crafted and wired and hung from old oak trees. Dancing areas need to be lit with uplighting and gobos. We solve the problems of how to get power to all of these lights, how to hang them from invisible lines, how to create colorful light on trees in the distance. There are so many possibilities for memorable specialty wedding lighting Charleston SC that our design group is always looking for new ways to maximize AV Connections largest inventory in Charleston of specialty wedding lighting to make your event like none other.

Incredible Charleston SC Event Lighting by AV Connections

Posted on June 11, 2014

Yes, those are our rental bulb lights and chandeliers, more Charleston SC event lighting to share with you.

This time, an incredibly beautiful nighttime wedding at Legare Waring House in West Ashley photographed by one of Charleston SC’s finest wedding photographers, Aaron Nicholas Photography. Perhaps the most extraordinary part of Aaron’s photos (and we see a lot of night event photos) is that it is literally just like being there. The flash work is so perfect you can truly see the warm light generated by our cafe bulb rentals scene.

Set in a blooming and private grove surrounded by a live oak allee (pictured above in the middle photo behind the vintage Cadillac), a pond with strolling paths surrounded by ancient azaleas of every color, it is a picture perfect wedding venue.

Ceremony AV rentals Charleston SC by AV Connections

Ceremony AV rentals Charleston Ceremony AV rentals Charleston

What a beautiful afternoon to be handling ceremony AV rentals, Charleston! We were out on site for our regular Charleston SC audio rentals client, Addlestone Hebrew Academy, for a great ceremony. Addlestone Hebrew Academy broke ground on what will be their wonderful new school building! And we could not be more pleased to watch the school celebrate this momentous occasion in the West Ashley section of Charleston.

We set up the outdoor audio staging to welcome the event speakers to address the attendees in what might currently be presumed to be a field. However, soon this will be the new site of one of Charleston, SC’s finest private schools. So much of the schools work, dedication, and hopes went into this moment and it was exciting to see. For years, we’ve been with Addlestone for preformances and events and it was heart-warming to know they are on their way to a beautiful new facility.

And then, as he often has since taking office, the legendary mayor of our beautiful city of Charleston, Joe Riley, stepped up to our mic. As always, it is with pride we listened to his speech. This was a much different, less prosperous city for all of us when Charleston native  Joe Riley took office here some three decades ago. Now, Charleston, SC is Conde Nast’s best city in the world for the third amazing year in a row. He so loved the city of his birth, and believed it’s charm and grace could conquer all, that we have all benefited from his tenacity in creating a revived Charleston. Mayor Riley will leave office this year and regardless of politics, it has been a strictly amazing run.

Congratulations to Addlestone  Hebrew Academy on its new endeavor and huge growth. We’re proud to be your Charleston, SC audio rental provider.

Frequently Asked Questions: Can I use an outside AV provider for a hotel or conference center meeting?

Posted on June 4, 2014

Frequently Asked Questions: Can I use an outside AV provider for a hotel or conference center meeting?

Frequently Asked Questions: Can I use an outside AV provider for a hotel or conference center meeting?

Yes, you can.

One of the most frequently asked questions we answer is whether a conference or meeting planner is required to use the in-house AV department for their conference. The fact is, many times, you are not. A wise planner gets bids from outside AV firms which often offer more economical conference audio visual packages even with possible surcharges a hotel may assess to use an outside AV provider.  It is important to do this leg work before signing the hotel or conference center contract.

AV Connections works with hundreds of hotels and conference sites around the nation. We regularly work with those where we are not the in-house provider, and the hotels and conference center certainly know how to handle this arrangement. For new planners, this is a little known method of significant AV cost savings for conference and meeting budgets.

Additionally, AV Connections’ technical staff is totally dedicated to your specific conference.  Many times in-house AV departments are responsible for many groups and cannot dedicate their time to one specific group.

We are here to help with all of your questions regarding cost-effective and economical conference and meeting AV. AV Connections services conference clients throughout the United States from our branch offices. We are your best conference and meeting AV rentals and production resource.
