Best LightingReviewed on 11/03/2015 Christine G
I have nothing but good things to say about Impulse Event Lighting. From the moment I contacted Raul, he was always very professional and responsive. Any questions I had he answered promptly! My wedding was on October 10, 2015 and Raul did the purple uplighting, pin spots for the main and cake tables, a custom monogram and a backdrop for our sweetheart table. Everything was absolutely gorgeous and perfect!! The ballroom was simply magical with all the lights and our monogram on the wall..it was pefect and I couldn't have asked for anything more! I definitely recommend Impulse Event lighting. Their pricing is very reasonable and they are very reliable and their work is amazing. Everything went beyond my expectations. Thank you Raul and Impulse Event Lighting.
Raul and Impulse Event Lighting are the best!Reviewed on 5/11/2015
Another glowing review for Raul and the guys at Impulse Event Lighting. Raul did the lighting for my daughter's wedding which was held at the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu. Raul turned this outdoor venue into the most beautiful and magical place you could imagine. All of the trees that surrounded the tables and dance floor were beautifully iluminated. A gorgeous chandelier was hung from the trees over the dance floor. It was exquisite! Not only did Raul do a wonderful job, he also happens to be a really nice guy to work with. My very busy wedding planner who's been in the business for a long time, absolutely loved working with him and plans to use him in the future. Good wedding planers know a good vendor when they see them. Costs. All I can say is Raul's prices are more than fair. There were no surprise added on costs. I paid exactly what his estimate was. Before hiring Raul I got one estimate that was almost 4 times what Raul charged. I knew this guy was just trying to gouge me and I quickly moved on. But be careful. Unfortunately not all lighting companies are fair, resonable, and honest in their pricing. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to use Raul again. I highly recommend Impulse Event Lighting.
HorribleReviewed on 4/09/2015 Mackenzie C
Awful customer service!! First, the owner Raul stood me up when he said he would meet me to do a site walk through for string lighting for my wedding. He apologized and said he forgot, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt and set up another appointment to which he showed up and gave me a quote. He said he was available for our wedding date and would email the contract the next day. A few days later and I still hadn't received an email and he was not responding to my phone calls. I called him consistently within the next couple weeks and he never called me back. Today he finally answered the phone and said he is busy and can't do my wedding! Thanks for wasting my time and lying to me Raul. I would definitely not recommend this company.
Exceeds expectations! Best value in Southern California!Reviewed on 11/29/2014 Karlene N
We hired Impulse Event Lighting to handle the lighting at our 300 guest wedding at LA Union Station in September 2014. Since LA Union Station was not a typical wedding reception venue, it was important to hire the right lighting vendor for the job to really make the unique venue look spectacular during our night reception. After a quick google search, I had found photos I had seen of their work from an Accenture party at LA Union Station. I was pretty sure Impulse Event Lighting was the vendor we wanted to hire... but I wasn't sure if his pricing might be too high. Fortunately, we reached out to Raul & were instantly impressed with his professionalism as well as the GREAT PRICING that he could offer. His pricing included set up, tear down, & delivery too... no hidden costs. It was pretty much a no brainer to look no further. He was organized & quick to respond over the phone/e-mail. That level of reliability gave me a lot of confidence & helped reduce my stress level as a bride-to-be. By the time our wedding day rolled around months later, we had also hired Raul & his team for a seamless 20'x20' dance floor & a 6' x 8' projector for our slideshow. On the day of the wedding, we were BLOWN AWAY by the lighting of the gorgeous vaulted ceilings at LA Union Station! We received so many compliments on the lighting & I owe it all to Raul at Impulse Event Lighting! A HUGE thank you to Raul & his team! If you are looking for an excellent vendor for lighting (especially for unique venues), look no further!! Just hire Impulse Event Lighting. You will not be disappointed!! The quality is EXCELLENT... and the PRICING in INCREDIBLE. Must be the best value for a lighting vendor in So Cal! If I could give them a 6-star rating, I would!
AwesomeReviewed on 11/04/2014 Christine K
If you want someone who's professional and will make the whole process seamless, go with Raul. Good communication, transparent, and straightforward. No B.S. The way it should be :) Made our reception awesome.
High Quality, Impressive WorkReviewed on 10/31/2014 Joana M
Impulse Lighting is such a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Raul is quick to respond to any of your inquiries and makes every bride's life easy! If you've dreamed about your wedding since you were 5, prepared to take that dream to another level as Impulse Lighting brings life to your event, leaving your guests in awe. I had many compliment my outdoor string lighting and wall monogram! It was perfection and worth every penny.
Worth Every Penny!Reviewed on 10/29/2014
These guys are fantastic. With all of the work going into our wedding, there's stuff that you just don't know how to do -- do you buy lights? Who puts them up? Who takes them down? In a high stress time, Raul and Co. pulled off a far better setup than we would have, and did so at a far lower cost than buying the items ourselves would've been. 5 stars, cannot recommend enough.
Better than we hoped forReviewed on 9/21/2014
My wife and I used Impulse Lighting for our wedding. The man who runs the business, Raul, was a pleasure to work with. He is very honest and professional. Whenever I had a question for him, I simply emailed him and he got back to me promptly. The services he provided for us were white uplighting for the ceremony and purple uplighting for the reception, GOBO projection display and centerpiece pinlighting. His pricing is very reasonable. He showed up to the venue ahead of time as well. By the time we arrived, all the lighting was in place. Everything went way better than expected for our wedding lighting service. I will certainly recommend Impulse Lighting to any of my friends or family getting married in Los Angeles area!
Good customer serviceReviewed on 9/19/2014
Impulse Event Light is awesome and we wedding event cannot finish without their help. I really appreciate Raul's patience and help and definitely recommend this company for your big day.
Best Lighting Team - for my wedding and my clientsReviewed on 8/18/2014 Julie T
I'm both a client and coordinator that has worked with the Impulse Team. I always recommend this amazing team to all my clients and use them at all of my events. The team always arrives earlier than scheduled, dresses clean and professional, and is ready to go at any time needed. At a 450 guest event at the California Science Center, Raul insisted on bringing his own power source even though the venue said they had enough for all vendors, but he wanted to be well equipped. We ended up with a power outage (city issue, not venue) and Impulse saved the day - the vendors ended up pulling their power from his source. They were kind enough to even lend out some of their equipment (extensions and such) for some of the unprepared vendors that day. I've had some of the most difficult and last minute clients but Raul has always been accommodating to every single one. With them, it's always easy to get things confirmed since they are so quick with calls, texts, and emails. They seriously offer the BEST PRICE in the industry. I've tried with other vendors but no one compares to the quality in products, service, and price with Impulse. They have everything you need - uplight/ambient lighting, pin spots for your centerpieces/cake/sweetheart table, intelligent lighting to capture those special moments, monogram projection, wall designs, string/bistro/market lights (with or without lanterns), and projector & screen equipment. They have the latest equipment and technology when it comes to these things. They have trained technicians on site, not inexperienced technicians like some other companies do. I personally used Impulse at my wedding! Working in the industry, it was a bit hard for me to decide on my vendors since I saw the good and bad behind the scenes. But for Impulse, there was no hesitation there because I knew I had nothing to worry about. It was such a stress reliever to know I was in such good hands. Thank you Raul, Rita, and the awesome Impulse Team for everything!!! :)
Just what we wantedReviewed on 8/06/2014

Beautiful Uplighting and Excellent Service!Reviewed on 7/23/2014 Judy W
Raul has been very responsive since the beginning and really helped me to customize a package that fits my wedding. The lighting team was on time on the day of and very professionally decorated the room. I did not need to worry about a thing on my wedding day a all. Overall, it was a smooth and worry-free process dealing with Impulse Event Lighting! I would definitely recommend them!
Pin Spot LightingReviewed on 7/08/2014 jason s
Our reception hall was beautiful... But once we added the pin spot lighting to each table, it really made all the tables POP and stand out. Impulse came early and set up within 30 min. Raul was awesome and answered all my questions in a timely manner and gave me a great deal. Definitely would use them for future events. Thanks Raul and Impulse
Great Price, Professional workReviewed on 6/25/2014 Monique T
I looked around everywhere and for a while and when I came upon Impulse Lighting they were professional right from the start. I would definitely recommend using them and would use them again. My wedding was fantastic and so was the lighting, and that was a huge role.
Excellent Lighting Vendor!Reviewed on 6/19/2014
Raul and his team worked our wedding this past May in Long Beach, California. From the initial meeting to the day of the wedding, my wife and I were pleased with two standout qualities of Raul and Impulse Event Lighting: their flexibility and eagerness to meet our highest expectations. Raul was very willing to work around our busy schedule for the initial meet-up to even discuss the prospects of working our wedding. Raul was honest that he had not actually done a wedding at our site, and he made three separate trips (even joining us on one of our meetings with our coordinator) to just scope out the wedding site. On the day of, he and his team were there bright and early to set up. Family and friends have not stopped telling us how beautiful the lighting was and how impressed they were with the additional decor (specifically, the lanterns and monogram). His prices were very reasonable especially for how much attention and care he provided in servicing our wedding. Thank you once again to Raul and his team for providing my wife and I with a gorgeous backdrop and lighting for the pictures and memories of our wedding day.
May WeddingReviewed on 6/18/2014 daniela o
Raul and his team met my expectations above and beyond! I had previously seen his work both online and at a friends'wedding and knew they would do a great job. When we walked in, my husband and i were speechless! We never imagined it would look this beautiful. Even when things didn't go as planned, Impulse was cooperative. I appreciated their professionalism and communication with me. There was also a last minute defect with our monogram and Raul assured me he would replace it with something else aand would make sure it looked great I could say so much more but short and sweet: you cant go wrong with Impulse :)
Awesome ExperienceReviewed on 6/04/2014 Joanna W
Raul and his team were referred to me by a friend. Raul is probably the most professional and up standing guy. He not only made my wedding beautiful. The lighting and drapery really enhanced the venue. He was great at responding back to emails and made me feel really comfortable. I have recommended Raul to all my friends and family, because I love his work and how he does business.
Great lighting and pipe-and-drape!Reviewed on 5/01/2014 Julie T
My wedding was on April 27, 2014 and Raul did the fuschia uplighting, centerpiece pinspotting, GOBO, projector slideshow, and white pipe-and-drape for the walls. Everything was gorgeous and exactly the way he had assured me they would be during our meetings and e-mails beforehand. If I ever had a question about anything before the wedding, Raul was quick to reply and super-friendly. He showed up early to our meetings and was very professional. My DJ and other rental vendor had quoted me crazy expensive pricing for lighting and pipe-and-drape, so I decided to shop around and do my research online. I'm glad that I did because I found Impulse Event Lighting that way and we got great pricing- I'm talking like over half or 3/4 savings on what other vendors quoted me. I was a little nervous, to be honest, about the quality of service I was going to get since Raul's prices were so good, but when the day came everything was perfect. The pipe-and-drape fabric was clean and thick and nicely covered the walls, and Raul himself came to do the lights at my event. I would highly recommend Impulse Lighting. Thanks, Raul!!
ITS WHAT THEY DO!!Reviewed on 4/23/2014 Estela F
Impulse Event Lighting is nothing but amazing. From being extra friendly to being there RIGHT ON TIME. Raul and his team never disappoint. I would recommend anyone who is thinking on adding lighting to their event to do so. It makes an unbelievable difference. My wedding venue went from looking like a dull gymnasium, to a lit up ... ready to dance... wedding worthy hall. I'm forever in gratitude to their friendliness and incomparable work. =)
Beautiful lighting and decor!Reviewed on 4/17/2014 Annie P
I used Impulse Event Lighting for my wedding this past March. Our reception hall transformed from a dull white room to a beautifully lit reception. We got amber uplights, pin spots (for our sweetheart table, dessert table, and cake), 100' lights streamed across the ceiling, and lanterns scattered throughout the room. I received so many compliments about our lighting on our wedding day. Raul was amazing. He listened to what I wanted and made my vision come alive. He even threw in a 30' drape behind my sweetheart table free of charge. And all this for a very reasonable price. My wedding wouldn't have been as beautiful without them!

The lighting surely did make our day memorable. People still can't stop talking about how much they loved the lighting.
