    Magical Lighting with Zero Stress!

    For our wedding at the Bali Hai's Hawaiian Village, we wanted some softer outdoor lighting & papel picado. Scott from Brilliant Event Lighting provided some excellent examples & took care of everything. He's extremely responsive over email so coordinating was simple. We were able to rent their papel - which made the decoration extra easy. I've never actually met Scott because his team were so efficient that they set up our lighting / decor prior to the setup time at the Bali Hai. That meant that the second we showed up - everything looked amazing. Thank you Scott & Brilliant Event Lighting for your help on our special day!

    Beautiful twinkle lights, chandeliers and uplighting

    Scott had some beautiful ideas for our space at the Meadows of Temecula Creek Inn (I wish we could have done them all) but he worked with our budget and made everything so beautiful. Our twinkle curtain was our favorite and we got so many compliments on it. Thanks Scott!!

I worked with Scott of Brilliant Event Lighting for the first time at an all outdoor Fashion Show to benefit orphans who desperately need it in Tijuana, Mexico. Scott is the consummate professional, from inquiry to day of, going above and beyond and ensuring I didn't have to double check his work- his team was on top of it. He was realistic and competitive with his bid and achieving the vision for the night. It's a small project to install lights for an outdoor show with a long runaway. BEL showed up dressed professionally, their equipment was in top notch form and they really 'lit up the night'. I never had a concern about them. Guests were impressed with how beautiful everything was and, as an event planner, realize that lighting has that WOW factor to take your event to the next level. Thank you Scott and the BEL team for your dedication to your craft and our cause. You guys rock!
