  1. After seeing all the pictures, I would definitely agree that using creative lighting like lanterns can provide a magical backdrop for a wedding. Personally, my favorite lighting option is the lanterns. We’ll have to start looking into where to buy lanterns online so that we can set something up for our daughter’s forest wedding.

  2. I love the picture with the three lanterns hanging from the ceiling above a table, with light wooden chairs, white floors and walls, and even more lanterns in the background. My sister is planning her wedding reception, and she is looking for inspiration for what to do for lighting. I think she would love to incorporate the lantern idea, I think that would really look great if she just had tons of lanterns as the main source of light.

  3. All the pictures are great. The lighting installation are so vibrant and creative. This is so mermerizing that I am going over the pictures numerous times. And, I wish that I can have similar lightings for my wedding to make it the best.
