Wedding and Event Lighting in The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts

There are many reasons I am one of the most in-demand Pittsfield-based wedding DJs. One is the impressive array of dance floor lighting that comes standard with every DJ package I offer. I also offer special event lighting including uplighting, custom monogram lightingpin spot lighting, and bistro market string lighting to make your event spectacular! Looking to make the best use out of every dollar in your budget? This is the way to do it! Compared to the cost for just the centerpieces (never mind the rest of your decor), you won't believe how affordable my lighting is, and it's sure to impress every guest. This is one expenditure that everyone will notice. Plus, you can take advantage of my unique decor to fit your luxurious vision including crystal columns and matching crystal chandeliers, versatile sheer fabric draping, and vase rentals.

"My spouse and I found Chris' services online 6 months before our wedding date, and we are so glad that we found him! Initially in our search process, we had obtained quotes from several vendors including Chris. Other vendors quoted more than double of what Chris quoted... while they all had the same exact reviews online. We decided to meet Chris, and that was when we made up our minds to go with him. He is professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable about interior lighting & spatial acoustics. In the time leading up to the wedding date, he took the time to get to know the type of event we wanted by having us do a survey, which was immensely helpful in informing him on what tone we wanted to set for our event. He was also very accommodating as to our availability to do walk-throughs of the reception space; we met a total of 3 times before the event itself (the third time we caught him setting up lighting and sound well in advance of the evening). All in all, music was fantastic... as per comments from every demographic in attendance. Lighting was phenomenal; his suggestion to uplight exposed stone walls really elevated the whole space! If you are deciding between Chris and another company, go with Chris; what a pro!"

Lighting is one singular difference between an average event and a great one."
