Michael was great to work with at our May wedding on Ocean Isle Beach! We contacted Michael the day before our wedding for his drapery services as there had been a change in the forecast calling for rain. He was so attentive to detail, very professional, and conscious of the... Read More fact that our plans had changed last minute and that were concerned about the change of our venue space. He was quickly able to help modify the space and with his creative use of the drapery, our reception venue was transformed. Our guests raved about our drapery backdrop and it made for beautiful pictures! If you want something beautiful, Michael can get it done! He was the perfect addition to our team of wedding vendors.

Michael is the BEST! When I booked my venue it was still being completed, and I found out after completion that the venue owner hung awful, velvet, red curtains and he was not willing to budge on taking them down for my wedding. Michael was able to use pipe and drape to create... Read More an elegant entrance for me and hide the curtains and there was no red to be seen anywhere!! It was absolutely perfect. He also did uplighting in the corners, a spotlight on my cake, and a backdrop behind the wedding party table and it was flawless. I very highly recommend him; he's super easy to work with and will make your wedding PERFECT!

I can't say enough about how amazing this company is!! I won their giveaway contest and received free lighting at my wedding, I was going to use them anyhow before that as his reviews were great and the pricing for what I wanted was more affordable than other companies, but... Read More getting all of that in the contest helped me use the money elsewhere and make the day even more amazing! When I first met with Michael he was super easy going and had a lot of pictures of his other work which really helped me being that I was completely indecisive about what I wanted. I mentioned I had seen others put drapes up at our venue and had not found where to get them, he said not to worry he would handle that too! On the day of the wedding I got to the venue and all of the vendors were there, the caterer stopped me and asked a ton of questions, then the DJ interrupted that with even more questions and problems, Michael stood there patiently until they were done. He then came up to me, I was ready for another barrage of "where does this go/ who is in charge of this?" questions, but there was none of that! He asked how I was holding up, then said he was done and just wanted to show me everything he set up to make sure I liked it, and I did! Everything was absolutely gorgeous and more amazing than I had imagined it would be. The only snag was that the venue had an electrical issue down stairs but rather than bother me with that he improvised and used his wireless lighting and it looked breathtaking! I cannot say enough good things about this company, in addition to the amazing work they did I really appreciate that he made my wedding day go smoother by not stressing me out like most everyone else did that morning. He also showed up right after everything was over and quickly took everything down, which was also appreciated as our venue had pretty strict timelines to remove everything after the wedding. My husband and I have been telling everyone how amazing the lighting and Michael were since we got married last week, we really recommend them for any event and just cannot say enough good things!

I worked HUNDREDS of weddings and I saw how important lighting is to events. I work with clients from start to finish including design/setup/and take down to ensure everything is perfect.
