Lighting & Decor Rentals

Custom lighting packages are available and are the most common type of rental agreement I make. Every lighting rental contract starts off with a $149 site fee, then you add the services you are interested in. It's simple!


  1. I visit your venue with you ahead of time and we discuss what you would like (if you would like to; it's preferred but not required).
  2. I prepare your quote.
  3. If you accept the quote, I strike up your contract & payment terms.
  4. On the day of your event, I deliver and set up your lighting. Sometimes I'll set up the day before, or even days before.
  5. After your event, I retrieve my equipment.


You'll enjoy the very best price possible for lightscaping services you always wanted but never thought you could afford! If you prefer I am onsite during the event add $85/hour.

"Chris was exceptionally professional, responsive to questions, knowledgeable, and well prepared.

When we arrived we picked up 2 very well organized plastic tubs and a large pole for a spotlight, and Chris went over how to use each item and set up the lights. He was even familiar with our venue, so he adjusted the color of two lights to best match the space before we arrived!

We rented string lights, a large spotlight, a few smaller spotlights, and two up lights. He told us the best way to set up the lights, included zip ties and carabiners to make securing the lights a snap, and a detailed inventory list that turned out to be a huge help when packing up (we were able to confidently say we had everything packed).

Overall he was great to work with and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for lighting."
