    Beyond All Expectations!

    I cannot recommend John and his team enough. From the very first time I spoke to him I knew that he would help to make our wedding vision a reality. He was just as invested in our wedding as we were and was all in on our crazy idea to have a Studio 54 themed wedding. We had to postpone and he was so accommodating, not only switching our date but helping us meet our new budget. He went above what he needed to do on our wedding weekend and was there to help with the lighting and sound every step of the way including our welcome party. His crew even stayed late for the after party AND drove some of our guests home in golf carts who were staying on the other side of the property. I could go on and on, but if you want someone who is an expert at what they do AND one of the kindest and most genuine people you will meet, please choose John and his team! Here are some photos from our photographer Sasha Pedro to show some of their magic!

    Exceptional Lighting, Incredible Team

    John and BearFly team were our favorite vendor to work with. John literally took the vision in our head and turned it into a reality. The BearFly team illuminated a massive tent, creating outdoor lighting spaces, overhauled a restroom area with innovative lighting, and decorated a line of massive trees. They did so much and more, we really feel blessed to have met John and the BearFly team.

    Amazing! Made our rustic venue feel intimate and beautiful!

    John and BearFly Designs did such an amazing job for our wedding! The strung lights and the hanging chandelier, completely changed the feeling of our rustic wedding, and we couldn't have been happier! They even hung a chandelier my mom had found (even though it was not easy to hang!). Would 100% recommend them for all your event lighting needs :).

As a wedding planner I have been working with John for years and have had nothing but 100% positive experiences with him. I truly believe that is primary goal is always to make a couple happy and do everything he can to bring their vision to life while still being contentious of any restrictions they may have. I could not ask for more out of any vendor I work with, I highly recommend him all the time!
