Illuminating Events is committed to providing incredible lighting designs combined with unmatched customer service, professionalism, and  attention to detail, resulting in an unforgettable memory for life.

Lighting is the "jewelry" for your event.   It has the unique ability to transform a space from a hard surface to an enchanted forest, for example. It softens the space.  The correct lighting has a significant impact on the quality of the ambiance of your event, making it an experience.  Lighting sets the tone for the message you wish to convey to your guests, whether it be magical and mystical, enchanted, or wild. Lighting has also proven to significantly impact the quality of your  photography.

Keith Register, the owner, has over fifteen years of experience in event planning and execution due to management positions held across various prestigious country clubs such as Cape Fear Country Club, Prestonwood Country Club, Hasentree Club, and Raleigh Country Club. This experience is a key differentiator for Illuminating Events compared to others in our field.  Keith has worked to ensure successful execution of over 400 weddings to date by fostering customer satisfaction with not only brides as his customers, but wedding planners and vendors as well. He has served as the conductor of the orchestra so to speak on the day of the wedding, supporting all team members from the bride to the groom to the chef. He "gets it" and is willing to jump in and help with any last minute requests to ensure the finishing touches for your event are precisely as you wish them to be.

1.) Create a unique atmosphere for your event

Lighting is essential in completing the overall atmosphere and appeal of your event. A well thought-out lighting design can evoke a range of positive emotions in people attending your event from being excited and inspired to comfortable and relaxed.

2.) Change visual dimensions of your space

By manipulating different lighting effects, it is also possible to change visual dimensions of a space. For example, washing the walls with light by using creatively placed spotlights can make a room appear larger than it is.

3.) Highlight important details of your decor

Accent lighting is becoming increasingly popular today, offering a new dimension to important details of your event decor by illuminating features that you would like your guests to notice.

4.) Look your best

When used by professional lighting designers, the correct type of light with the correct color of light will be used. Certain colors will not make you look your best on your special day.
