An early January wedding & reception at Skylight Modern

Retained by creative and production agency Empire Entertainment, Inc., we provided our lighting design, audio, and staging services for a wedding and reception held at Skylight Modern on West 27th Street in Manhattan the first weekend after 2014's New Year's Day. The brief ceremony, held on the ground floor of the venue, was quickly followed by a combined cocktails and buffet reception in the vast lower level of the event space. Planned, designed, produced and styled by Empire Entertainment's art direction team in a unified visual manner simultaneously modern, whimsical, and romantic, the evening featured the cuisine of Pinch Food Design, floral decor by Denise Fasanello Flowers, a light string canopy installed by Brooklyn-based scenic shop The Factory NYC, a custom round dance floor by Hi Tech Event Flooring, photography by Caroline MJ Dorn, music by St. Paul and The Broken Bones, and cake by Sylvia Weinstock.  Lighting design, sound design and audio services, rigging, and staging by L & M Sound & Light.

A centrally placed floral display anchored the room visually and provided a backdrop for the bride and groom's lounge setting placed between it and the custom round dance floor.

Simultaneously modern, whimsical, and romantic, the event layout and styling by event planner and producer Empire Entertainment lent itself perfectly to the couple's own style and wishes for their wedding celebration and their approximately 225 guests.

The design presentation called for a "Lighting Installation Wall" the nature of which we collaborated on with Empire Entertainment to create this simple but striking modern backdrop to the event reception.

Pinch Food Design's catering setting awaits its cuisine.  Pinch's "interaction" buffets were placed throughout the event reception.

The Factory NYC - a Brooklyn-based set and scenic company - installed the light canopy and, together, we collaborated with their team to provide the center rigging point for the structure and electrical power and dimming.
