A great way to add a warm ambiance to your next event is to add stringer lights into your lighting design. Stringer lights can be utilized in both outdoor and indoor spaces to create the mood you are wanting to achieve. Here at BEYOND we have used stringer lights, also known as beer garden or pizzeria lights, in our designs to add a unique touch to an outdoor patio, suspended over a walkway for an inviting entrance, strung across tents and over guest tables to highlight the event space.  The stringer lights can also be used to add a unique touch to your design by stringing them through windows or across a pool area. In the photo of the tent below our twinkle lights were used to string across and highlight the chandelier centerpiece. For a variation lighting design elements clients can combine the twinkle and bulb stringer lights. Another way you can create a certain mood or ambiance for your space is to change out the bulbs in the stringer lights for a different color effect. One thing you want to consider when adding stringer lights is to see if there is an existing structure you will be able to use or if you will need to add a structure such as a support beam into your design. BEYOND offers support beams including a unique cedar wrapped beam to attach the lights to. The cedar beams works great in outdoor spaces or if your event has a more rustic feel to it.

BEYOND’s new 80 inch TVs

When talking with a client in regards to their audio visual needs for their event we want to make sure we are providing the best service to suit their needs. For our clients who we have provided our HD LED 80 inch TVs for they have been used for viewing of speakers during a conference, rehearsal dinner slideshows and corporate dinners. Often times in rooms that have limited views where the floorplan does not allow for some of the audience to see the screens upfront we will often put the 80 inch TVs as supplementle visuals on the side of the room. The TVs along the side of the room are then tilted at an angle for easy viewing. When helping a client choose between the traditional screen and projector or the 80 inch TVs we also consider the look of the room the event is taking place in. For example at Cafe 43 at the Bush Center for a clients rehearsal dinner we suggested the 80 inch TVs  to match the clean and chic feel of the room.

Want to add a unique lighting element to your wedding or event. Consider going BEYOND with pattern projections. Adding a pattern projection can help to carry out the feel of your over all theme and design. Our clients have used the pattern projections on the sides of buildings, inside tents, down on the floor to on up to the ceiling. Using the gobos you can project anything from stars to leaves and trees to fireworks on the ceiling for a New Year’s Eve wedding. For a little bit more fun we even offer pattern lights that move as seen in the photos below. Interested in adding patterned projections you can inquire here
