Uplights are the foundation of any Event Lighting design. They are placed on the floor of your venue, and are used to create a color wash on the walls or drapery. Gel overlays, which come in a wide variety of colors, can be used to customize the wash to complement your wedding’s color scheme. GOBOs come from the term “go between”. GOBOs are metal or glass discs with cutout patterns, names, or initials. They are placed over the lens of the light. Their image can be projected onto walls or floors in a wide variety of colors. Pinspots can be used to highlight the bride and groom, musicians, cake, candy bar, centerpieces, tables, or other key focal points.
In order to avoid a rush fee from our supplier, we need your artwork 45 days before your wedding/event.
For Event Lighting and Décor orders in the East Bay or San Jose, we have a $1,000.00 minimum. For all Event Lighting and Décor orders in the Peninsula, Napa Valley, Carmel/Monterey, Central Valley, or Sacramento areas, there is a $2,500.00 minimum.
Availability allowing, you can add lighting to your original contracted estimate up to two weeks prior to your wedding, with the exception of custom items. Should you wish to add a custom GOBO, we require your artwork 45 days prior to your wedding to avoid a rush fee from our supplier. We cannot subtract lighting from your signed contract, but, while it is still in the estimate stage, subtractions can be made. When making additions or deletions to your order, please keep in mind that Fantasy Sound Event Services has a minimum on all Event Lighting and Décor orders, depending on your location.
A non-refundable retainer of $500.00 is required to hold your wedding date and is due two weeks after we send out your contract. The balance due is required two weeks prior to your wedding date. Acceptable methods of payment include: personal checks, cash, and all major credit cards.
Retainers cannot be refunded, as they are used to secure your date and all necessary equipment.
Our event Lighting and Décor Design Specialists are available to meet with you for a free consultation in the initial stages of planning. Many couples like to take advantage of this optional meeting as an opportunity to learn more about their lighting options. If your wedding is taking place at a venue we have not worked at before, we will require an on-site consultation. If the venue is in the East Bay or San Jose area, this on-site consultation is complimentary. If the venue is located elsewhere, the consultation is $250.00, which will be credited towards your final balance if you decide to book.
After we contact you, we will meet with you once for your final meeting, which takes place no later than two weeks before your wedding. During your final meeting, we will go over specific lighting and décor placements, as well as selected colors and patterns.
Our Event Lighting Finalization form ensures that your lighting is exactly the way you envisioned it. The form lays out the specific placement, colors, and patterns of all lighting for your wedding day. At your final meeting, you will review and sign your Event Finalization form.
While we can obtain information from you over the phone regarding your design needs, our estimates are sent out via email or, if your prefer, direct mail

They helped us plan all the lighting for the wedding, and the evening was amazing! They recommended all the right colors that helped create the mood that we were hoping for – romantic and elegant! They were on time and all the lights were in place before the other vendors arrived at the venue. They did an excellent job – I highly recommend adding lighting to your event, it made it that much more special and memorable!Christina and Michael
