Amazing to Work With!

Advanced Production & Design is a great company and I absolutely loved working with Sarah to make my wedding vision come to life. I had contacted APAD last minute because I was planning on hanging lanterns at my venue, and learned that I needed a licensed, insured company to do that. In a panic, I researched lighting and rental companies, and found APAD. I was so relieved to find out they still had my date open, and Sarah was extremely helpful and accommodating. Looking back, there was no way- if I even was allowed to hang those lanterns myself - that me and my family could've gotten that done on the day of the wedding. Sarah and her team did set up and breakdown, and even stayed to make sure everything was set up properly. I didn't have to lift a finger. Sarah was also able to recommend some uplighting packages, and let me tell you that these drastically improved the atmosphere of our reception, making it feel much more vibrant and party-like. Everyone was impressed. Finally, I had a last minute request of Sarah to add some curtains to the hallway of our venue, since it was a public venue and, while it was painted nice, we wanted to class it up a bit. My husband and I are still talking about what a nice touch the curtains were. They hid a lot of the fire hydrants, etc. and made the area around the bar and bathrooms really classy. All in all, I am so impressed with APAD, and so glad that they were able to help my wedding vision come to life. Don't hesitate and contact them for your event!

Mother of the bride

Hired Advanced production and design for my daughter’s wedding. The drapes were beautifully hung, up lighting perfect for ambiance and seating chart impeccably designed. What was a real plus is their responsiveness; willingness to take time to travel to venue, before hiring to give a demonstration and fair pricing. Thank you APD!!

The best for event lighting! Adam and the team at Advanced Production were fantastic to work with. We hired them (on relatively short notice) to string bistro lights in our wedding tent and they did an excellent job making our tent bright and beautiful. Adam was responsive, thorough and a total professional, and the lighting quote was very competitively priced (other vendors quoted us several thousand dollars more than he did). It was great that he and his team knew exactly what they were doing—they had done a similar job at our venue a few months before and had worked with our tent company, so could coordinate with them directly. When a few lightbulbs burned out between our Friday and Saturday night events, I emailed Adam, he responded within an hour, and sent a team on site to replace the bulbs before noon. It was a pleasure working with Advanced Production, and I’d highly recommend them!
