About Cleveland Uplighting

Cleveland Event Lighting Design and Services

Don’t leave the look of your special day up to chance; hire a professional Lighting Designer and get the lighting you deserve! 

So what exactly is a Lighting Designer?  A Lighting Designer or LD, is a visual artist who specializes in manipulating light to create stunning effects.  There are many different lighting fixtures to choose from and a Lighting Designer knows which one is right for the job.  They understand how colors can complement as well as highlight but also know that too much can be worse that not enough.


The bottom line is that lighting is a skill, so if you want great, personalized wedding lighting hire a lighting designer.


The good news is that hiring an LD doesn’t have to break the bank.  Not only does every one of our lighting packages, custom or standard, include an on-site consultation with a Lighting Designer, but once you contact us, a professional LD will respond and be in touch every step of the way.


Contact us now to start a conversation with your Lighting Designer! It doesn’t cost you anything to consult with a professional LD; you can talk to us about your vision and have a custom design quoted for free!  There is never a fee for phone and email consultations and the more information you can give your designer during these conversations, the more your design can take shape even before you make any commitment.


So what kind of lighting are you looking for?  Chances are, whatever it is, we’ve got you covered.  We design lighting for everything from weddings like yours, to theater productions, to concerts for thousands of people! 



Frequently Asked Questions:


Here are the answers to some questions that if you haven’t planned on asking, you should!

1.      How much do you cost?

OK, let’s talk about the elephant in the room… This is the question everyone wants to know!  Unfortunately, it’s not always a simple answer as every wedding is unique and so are our services.  Our most popular lighting packages range from $495 to $695, which work for most couples.  However, more times than not, there are custom elements added.  The last thing we want is for you to pay for something you don’t want or need, so we try to get a good idea of exactly what you are looking for before quoting a firm price.  Services such as draping and spotlighting are almost always custom quotes.

2.      How much is the deposit?

The next thing everyone wants to know after “How much do I have to pay?” is “When do I have to pay it?”  We try to make this as simple as possible, so for any package under $1000, the deposit is only $200 which is due when you sign the contract.  The balance is due one month before your date.  For larger and custom packages, the deposit is usually 25% of the total. 

3.      What specifically is included in your costs and are there any extra fees?

We don’t like to hide costs, and we know you don’t like surprises, so here’s the low-down: 

Set-up and tear-down are always included in our package price as is delivery and pickup within 45 miles of Downtown Cleveland.  Outside of the local area, a travel fee is added to cover the cost of extra miles, extra time, and other expenses.  Typically, we do not remain on site to monitor the lights throughout your event unless you pay to have a technician on hand by purchasing an Onsite Lighting Maintenance Agreement or a service such as a photobooth that includes an operator who will also know the ins and outs of your lighting package.

All of our packages are billed as services so there is no sales tax in the State of Ohio.

We believe that planning and attention to detail are the keys to success! Therefore, we want to spend as much time as it takes to get to know you and you and your vision without you feeling like you’re “on-the-clock.” An on-site consultation is included with every package and phone and email consultations are always free

Peace of mind.  When you hire professionals, the job gets done right.  We take care of all the little stuff like scheduling the delivery and pick up with your venue.  You don’t have to worry about your lighting, that’s why you pay us.

4.      How are contracts and payments handled?

Contracts and payments are normally handled through WeddingWire.  When you contact us, we create a private, password protected Client Site where all your documents are available to you in one place.  You can sign your contract electronically and make credit card, debit card, and e-check payments through PayPal at your convenience.  Of course if you prefer, you can print and sign the contract the old-fashioned way, and yes we still accept paper checks and cash!

5.      How many weddings do you do per year?  How much experience do you have?

We have been in business over 10 years and provide services for dozens of weddings as well as other events every year.

6.      Are you insured?

Thankfully we’ve never needed it, but we do carry a Commercial Liability Policy which covers up to two million dollars per incident should the unthinkable happen.

7.     What other services do you offer?

We have the right people and equipment to cover all of your Lighting, A/V and Decorating needs!

I wanted to find a local vendor to do the uplighting for my wedding. I didn't know much about uplighting and Cleveland Uplighting was very useful. They responded very quick and were able to answer all of my questions. They were flexible and came out to my venue and showed me their idea for the wedding. One of my favorite features was the ability to sign the contact and pay over the internet. It was quick and easy to do.
