An Unforgettable & Breathtaking Experience

Crimson Haze is truly the best event lighting company in the industry! My (now) husband and I hired Crimson Haze for our July 2022 wedding at AXIS Pioneer Square in Downtown Seattle. From the beginning, Clea (the owner) was super kind, thoughtful, and helpful in describing the many wonderful services they have to offer and making suggestions on how we could have the biggest impact while staying within our budget. With Clea’s expertise, we decided on archway drapes, chandeliers, market lighting, pinspot lighting, and dynamic uplighting throughout the venue. We also added a special surprise during our mother/son dances - the dancing on the clouds dry ice effect! Leading up to the wedding, Clea worked with us to decide on dynamic lighting cues to make our venue come to life on our special day. And it sure did! From moody lighting upon guest arrival to rainbow uplighting during our recessional, and from blue uplighting and romantic twinkling lights (paired with the dancing on the clouds effect) during our mother/son dances to a vibrant, energetic, and lively dance party - Crimson Haze elevated our event to a whole new level! Finally, beyond providing lighting services, Clea and Clayton were so attentive, kindhearted, and thoughtful on our special day, which happened to be during a heat wave. Clea went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I stayed hydrated, cool, and had everything we needed. We highly recommend hiring Crimson Haze to bring your vision to life. You truly won’t be disappointed!

Best Enhancement!

Honestly, we hadn't planned on hiring for lighting; we didn’t think it was necessary and we thought that the venue was great as it was. But we happened to meet Clea at a vendor tour and we are SO GRATEFUL for that chance encounter. Having Crimson Haze light our event was one of the absolute best decisions that we made for our wedding party. It truly made such a huge impact on the event and the photos are magical! Not only did the lighting enhance everything, but working with Clea, Clayton, and Jamie was wonderful. They are professional, communicate well, and were willing to work with me on a few little extras last minute! They were so helpful, knowledgeable, and had brilliant ideas to create the event of my dreams. I highly recommend Crimson Haze.

Crimson haze truly cares! Best in the northwest!

Warning - this is going to be a pretty long and very detailed review because I am a very detailed bride (lol). I am also a fellow wedding vendor. My husband and I run The Afterparty Band, a wedding and event show band in Seattle, WA. We actually had worked with Crimson Haze on a couple of events prior to our wedding and thought - wow, what a great couple who clearly know what they're doing and clearly really truly care about the outcome of every event they light. We saw them and chatted with them at multiple industry events. We've known about them for years. We had other people and vendors recommend them. So we chatted with them about our wedding, and from the very get-go, we knew they were genuinely excited, genuinely proud of their products and service, and they genuinely cared for us and our special day. Clea and Clayton are also a strong power couple husband and wife team, so we also had that special bond and connection with them. Let's hear it for the boutique family businesses! Clea was great at communication and responsiveness. She always provided links of examples, a thorough and clear proposal for our wedding lighting, and just had the utmost professionalism. She was also very grounded and understanding. We gave them some notes and feedback about what we wanted and didn't want, and they took those notes so well and gave us exactly what we wanted, AND MORE. We hired our band to play at our wedding (of course - lol), and we added on their Dynamic lighting package, and WOW. JUST WOW. It took our performance from, "great band," to "this is the second best thing to the Taylor Swift Concert happening a couple miles away." When they say Dynamic, they mean DYNAMIC. I can't explain exactly what they used, but it was SO COOL. It really turned the band's performance into a show. We had our own private theatrical concert. And we also added the dry ice fog "dancing on the clouds," which turned our first dance into a freaking magical fairytale dream come true. We didn't even realize in the moment how absolutely freaking awesome that looked. Seeing the pictures afterward made me cry. With the sun shining through the windows, it looked like an October morning in Eastern Washington on a farm when you get low fog with sunshine coming through, and you stop and go, "This must be the work of a loving God." You couldn't see the dance floor anymore. It literally looked like we were dancing on the clouds. No joke. It was flawless and definitely in the top 5 highlights from our entire wedding day. We added on a second fog for the very end of the night for the last song (it was "Time to Say Goodbye" into "Don't Stop Believing"), and with all the colors and it being nighttime, it was such a rad and totally different look and feel for the end of the night. The best part was I forgot that we added these fog moments on, and then they just happened right when they were supposed to, and I was surprised and delighted by it all. I highly highly recommend that add-on (do it twice, too!). Also, they hadn't done lighting at The Edgewater Hotel (our wedding venue) before, so they went there ahead of time to make sure they had everything they'd need. They came back with some suggestions and made everything look really great. With the very dramatic side lighting coming in from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Olympic Ballroom, their lighting was SOOO important. We had actually done a wedding there two weeks prior to our wedding, and that couple did not hire a lighting company, and everything was drastically shadowed. You couldn't see anything, and it was very difficult for the photographer to capture everything without it being too dark or too bright. We had beautiful tables with records for chargers (it was obviously a very music-themed wedding - lol), candles, big flowers, signs, etc., and all of it would have been lost on the side opposite the light source. Instead, because of Crimson Haze and their expertise and the pin spots, you could see it all. Side note, you know you have an experienced professional vendor when you completely forget that they're there, but all these magical things are happening around you. That was Crimson Haze. We don't have a single complaint about them. Only things we loved. (And we can't say that about every vendor we hired). If it's in the budget to have some lighting at your wedding, do it and go with Crimson Haze. You won't be sorry or regretful. You will feel absolutely cared for and in good hands. They are one of those rare vendors (and I say this because we consider ourselves one of these rare vendors as well; after being in the business for a number of years, you just know) who go above and beyond for their clients. They keep their standards high, and they don't allow for any "oh well, it doesn't matter's." Have a consultation meeting with them. Just meet them. You'll see. They continually win awards for a reason (or several reasons, really). We hope to continue to work with them on future events and collaborate again soon to continue to go above and beyond for our clients. THANK YOU, CLEA AND CLAYTON!! YOU'RE THE BEST IN THE NORTHWEST!!! :-D
