BEYOND’s Colorful uplighting!


While one of the most popular colors of uplighting is a champagne color BEYOND loves it when clients go a different direction and choose a more colorful uplighting. Three of the most popular colors are purple, pink, and blue. With each color used  you can create a specific ambiance and atmosphere for your wedding or event. 

Purple is a color that is a sign of royalty and is associated with nobility and spirituality and is used to create a warm and elegant atmosphere. It is a popular wedding color choice especially with our TCU clients.beyond-colorful-uplighting-popular-light-colors-purple-pink-blue_0003 beyond-colorful-uplighting-popular-light-colors-purple-pink-blue_0006 beyond-colorful-uplighting-popular-light-colors-purple-pink-blue_0007

Pink is often a popular choice for weddings since it is associated with love, beauty, tenderness, sweetness and the romantic. It is often used in combination with blue and purple.

Blue is a popular color to give a more party like atmosphere to an events but can also give a more ethereal feel such as to convey a glow of clouds in the sky or to give an effect of water. Blue is also a popular choice for our SMU clients. When choosing a color such as blue or purple we do also suggest a white light is present otherwise having just the blue or purple can create a flat dimensionless room.

BEYOND’s Candlelight Uplighting



One of the most popular lighting design elements for any wedding or event is to use uplighting around the event room. Uplighting is a fixture placed on the floor to wash light up onto a wall in a selected color. For weddings one of the most popular choices is to have candlelight uplighting around the room. The candlelight uplighting is used to create a a warm and inviting ambiance for the reception. Uplighting can be used to enhance a room or event space and set the mood for the entire night. If the room has pops of color in the decor the candlelight uplighting is used to accent additional colors. If the space has draping the candlelight uplighting is often popular choice to illuminate the draping and create a soft romantic feel. If you want to set a warm inviting mood during the dinner part of your reception but want to create a party atmosphere later in the evening the uplighting color can be changed throughout the night as well.
