End of the evening: Tearing down AV and lighting rentals in Charleston SC

One questions we are frequently asked by new clients on AV and lighting rentals in Charleston SC is when and how we break down the rentals after a conference, gala dinner, or wedding. The answer is carefully and under cloak of darkness, usually. AV and lighting rentals in Charleston SC require an around the clock presence – we get in early we get out late. There is no other way.

When it comes to conferences, often we are dealing with hotels whose house is open all night anyway, but the idea is to get the equipment broken down and out immediately. There is usually set up for something else following close behind so efficiency and organization are the name of the game on AV and lighting work.

Occasionally, brides and grooms and wedding planners can get together regarding their back-to-back events at some of Charleston’s most popular venues and the lighting will stay overnight to be set for more than one wedding. But this is infrequent, wedding planners pride themselves on designing something individual for each client. With the pressure for each wedding to be published, it is less like to make it into the pages of a magazine if all the weddings being submitted have similar details. And so, while it may be ideal to set up lighting once on Friday morning for the weekend, it is more likely that the AV and lighting rentals in Charleston SC breakdown happens Friday after one wedding, starts again on Saturday morning – and, because Charleston is the number one city in the US for destination weddings, it is likely we will be setting up AV and lighting rentals again on Sunday morning. These days, it is  not uncommon to also be putting up wedding lighting on Mondays too.

Our clients don’t want to worry about how the lights get there or how they get down, so it is a little night magic that goes on at our job sites. We take it down with precision even in pitch darkness. And it is all gone and swept away like Brigadoon before morning. Here is a little photo insight into thwat breaking down a job at midnight looks like in our beautiful Charleston, SC.
