High Performance Lighting comes highly recommended by Airlie Gardens to all of our brides. We have worked with Steve and his team for many years with weddings and for our own events, Enchanted Airlie and Oyster Roast. High Performance is extremely professional to work with and will do an excellent job bringing all of your lighting needs to life.

High Performance Lighting is hands - down the BEST lighting and power company EVER! We trust them for all of our installations, lighting, rigging, and design elements to bring our events to life. We would be in the dark without them!

We absolutely love working with High Performance Lighting, not only do they do an amazing job at every wedding and event, they do so with smiles on there faces, and usually before anticipated time. Lighting is truly so important in the design of any wedding or event, and knowing that it is always done right with no worry or stress allows us to focus on the many other elements that need to be pulled together to make for an amazing event. We know that wonderful vendors with knowledge and experience truly make all the difference in having a seamless, stress free, and beautiful wedding day, and this is why we highly recommend Steve and his staff at High Performance Lighting.

Working with High Performance was such a professional and easy experience! They understood my client's taste and budget, and also worked in a timely and efficient manner. I would highly recommend them and most certainly will use them in the future.

I have known Steve Peterson and High Performance Lighting for years. I have worked for him and closely with him and his staff on hundreds of jobs. They always deliver and are the premier lighting and power company for Wilmington and beyond. If you want lighting and power and you want it done right they are the company to call. Highly Recommend.
