3 Reasons We Are the CSRA’s Premier Event Lighting Company

Quick riddle for you: what do the Academy Awards, the Royal Wedding, and Augusta’s Sacred Heart Garden Tour all have in common? Answer: Great Event Lighting. 

Whether it be Backyard Parties, Elaborate Weddings, Office Celebrations, or Community Fundraisers, Quality Lighting Makes a Good Event Great

Although we are best known for installing permanent residential and commercial lighting systems, did you know that we also offer temporary lighting systems for special events? For many years, we have quietly been making a name for ourselves as the CSRA’s premier event lighting company. It has been our honor to light a wide variety of important events for our customers: from backyard parties to elaborate weddings, office celebrations to community fundraisers, we shine at special events where good lighting is a must. 

So, why should you call us for your next special event?  Here are the top 3 reasons…

Our Lights…

1. Set the Right Mood for Your Special Event

Romantic, Elegant, Exciting, or Anything in-between, Let Us Create the Perfect Mood for your Special Event

We’ve all heard the term “mood lighting” used many times before. The term’s popularity is evidence of the power of light to shape our mood and experience of an event. Consider some of the most memorable events you have experienced. Whether it be a  romantic dinner with your partner, a performance piece that touched you deeply, or a particularly beautiful wedding, chances are, by intentional design (or blind luck), lighting played an important part in making that event so meaningful and memorable for you. Truly, good mood lighting has the power to make a good event great. Whether you are aiming for romantic, intimate, exciting, or anything in between, we have the practical experience, technical skill, and artistic sensibilities needed to help you create the perfect mood for your next special event.

 2. Make Your Event Planning Easier

Let Us Help you Take Care of Some Crucial Aesthetic and Practical Details to Ensure that your Special Event is Beautiful, Seamless, and Low Stress.

Let’s be honest – planning special events can present a quite a challenge. Consider all the details an event planner has to keep track of: does the caterer have all the equipment they need? Is the florist on time and on track? Which guests still need directions? Every event requires planners to juggle a lot of details, but the best events create a mood (and a host) that is calm, complimentary, and engaging. When you choose us, we help you by taking care of some of the most crucial aesthetic and practical details to ensure that your special event is beautiful, seamless, and most importantly, low stress. We will quietly set up our lights at a convenient time before your event, test/program them on site, and quickly take them down at a time that works best for you. With us, you get to rest a bit easier, trusting that there will be no hassle, no fuss, and no problems with our lights. We know that you’ve got enough to worry about, so let us help you enjoy the event you have worked so hard on.

3. Provide Lighting of Some of CSRA’s Most Prestigious Events

The Cotton Ball – Lighting Up An Augusta Tradition


An Augusta Tradition since 1988

We Are Proud to be Lighting
Historic Augusta’sCotton Ball 2013

Today was a great day at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Augusta and Lake Oconee. I’ve said it many times before – May is my favorite month of the year. The flowers are blooming, local produce fills store bins, and the weather is almost perfect.

It is days like today that make me grateful to be working outside with my hands. Not only was the weather beautiful, but my crew also finished setting up some lighting for a really fantastic local event – Historic Augusta’s Cotton Ball.

What Is The Cotton Ball? Since 1988, the Cotton Ball is an annual tradition of Historic Augusta, Inc. Historic Augusta is an important local organization whose mission is to preserve some of our city’s most important and historic landmarks.

Where Is It Held?– The casual affair will take place in the gardens surrounding the home of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond John Doumar, located at 2644 Henry Street. The Doumar’s home was originally built in 1917 by architect Henry Ten Eyck Wendell, who designed many of the finest homes that were built in Augusta in the early 20th century. The Doumars are also long time clients of ours, and we are very proud to have done the lights for this party, as well as the lights for their house and their incredible backyard.

When Is It Happening? This Thursday, May 16th from 6:30-9:30pm.

How Much Does It Cost? The Cotton Ball is free with a membership to Historic Augusta, Inc. Not a member? No sweat, membership rates are very reasonable – just $50 for an individual and $85 for a couple. Again, all proceeds go to Historic Augusta and their mission of local preservation.

You can also enjoy mingling in the beautiful May weather and in the warm glow of this beautiful home. For more information, check out Historic Augusta’s website.

Do you have an evening event coming up soon? No worries, we can help. In addition to residential and commercial lighting, we also specialize in event lighting. Whether it be weddings, special events (The Blue Jean Ball), festivals (Sacred Heart Garden Festival), or even private dinner parties, discerning customers know how a few of our lights can make a huge difference for their event.
