Lighting -

Bentley Meeker - If you want your reception shots to look even better than amazing, hire these guys to light your venue. It’s a shame to get wonderful centerpieces and leave them in the dark. And nothing makes a party look more like a party than good lights.     www.bentleymeeker.com

Frost Lighting - These guys actually invented some of the lighting systems used by the rest of the wolrlds lighting designers. Makes for killer pictures.   www.frostlighting.com
