Uplighting FAQs:

Can I Have Outdoor Wedding Uplighting?   

You sure can! We can help you design indoor and outdoor lighting combinations to transform your venue into the space of your dreams. We can share ideas from our past events at your venue. Or, we can work with you to design something entirely new.


Indoor, outdoor, and in between—we can make it happen!


Do You Do Custom Monograms?

Yes! For any event, we’re happy to create a custom monogram that can be projected in your event space. Custom monograms may include:

  • Initials of the newlyweds
  • Your wedding or event date
  • Your high school slogan or mascot
  • Sorority or fraternity letters
  • And anything else that will put your stamp on the big day!


My Venue Only Allows Wireless Uplighting. Why?

There may be many reasons for this limitation. Wired lights may require tape that can cause damage to floors and walls. And, when installed by an inexperienced provider or by following many DIY uplighting methods, they can create a tripping hazard.


These issues are rare with experienced lighting professionals. However, we understand that venues have good reason to create rules that protect them from amateur lighting-related damage.


Not to worry—we can install wireless uplighting in your space to comply with your venue’s rules. We’re always happy to work with your on-site coordinator and honor their rules while exceeding your expectations.


How Much Does Event Uplighting/Wedding Uplighting Cost?

Uplighting is a cost-effective way to make a big impact statement at your Buffalo or Rochester special event. With event uplighting, you can:

  • Add simple and fun effects to your dance floor.
  • Place a monogram or backlighting above your sweetheart or cake table.  
  • Transform your entire space with a professional, music-reactive lighting presentation.
  • And more!

SoundWave’s special event uplighting packages start at $200.
