This clip is an excerpt from a reception at The Intercontinental Hotel in Century City California.
Cool music, lots of dancing and this reception possesses an awesome display of lighting for ambiance. I cannot emphasize enough how "LED" up lighting, pin spots, gobos, intelligent lights, etc. make a difference for a party...in this case a wedding reception.
As a Los Angeles Wedding videographer, I can honestly say that this room would have looked like a square box with no atmosphere at all without the use of decorative reception lighting as seen in this clip. When you book a hotel banquet room or most any other reception site, they generally only provide the overhead lights built into the space, and IMO they just don't cut the mustard. This is why I made it a point to write about reception lighting.
Pin spots accent the beautiful centerpieces that took you countless time in designing, often time without the use of pin spots...those centerpieces get lost in the background.
So, for anyone considering up lights, gobos, pin spots, etc...if it fits into your budget, DO IT! You will not regret it.
The "best man" at the wedding got a lot of screen time during this reception clip, can you figure out who he is?
