Eagle Creek Lake Nona Wedding
Jackie and Juan had their outdoor ceremony under the gorgeous pergola at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Lake Nona Florida. It was a beautiful day and just look at the smiles on their faces *all the feels*
We lit up the Grand Ballroom with our signature Fyerfly lights (market lights) and amber uplighting.
You know you need a pin spot to show off that outstanding cake!
Dancing under the Fyerfly lights 🙂
Ending the night with some gold confetti and big smiles.
First Dance Song – : I choose you by Sara Bareilles
Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
‘Cause I could live by the light in your eyes
I’ll unfold before you
Would have strung together
The very first words of a lifelong love letter
Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I will become yours and you will become mine

Lighted Canopy at Highland Manor Wedding
High School sweethearts Alex and Emily were married at the gorgeous Highland Manor. It was a gorgeous Florida day as they got married under the old oak tree.
Below is some of our favorite moments…
They let us light up their wedding with a lighted canopy and uplighting.
First Dance – Ray LaMontagne – You Are The Best Thing
It’s been a long day, baby
Things ain’t been going my way
You now I need you here
You clear my mind all the time
The way you move me, it’s crazy
It’s like you see right through me
And make it easier
Believe me, you don’t even have to try
You are the best thing
(You’re the best thing)
You are the best thing
(You’re the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(You’re the best thing, ooh)
Ever happened to me
We’ve come a long way
You know I hope and I pray
That you believe me
When I say this love will never fade away

Mike and Paige’s June Highland Manor Wedding…
The beginning to Mike and Paige’s love story is one that will most likely be told for the remainder of the year… Why? Because their day was that beautiful from start to finish.
Starting off the day with their ceremony under the big Oak tree… Christine McPhail strummed away as the bridal party marched down the aisle… Avoiding a slight drizzle, the ceremony went off without a hitch. Celebrating and proclaiming their love for each other, Mike and Paige exchanged rings and tied the knot, sealing their new love with a kiss!
Next up, Cocktail hour! While their guest reconnect with family and friends that they have not seen in years… the the ever so talented photographers at Josh&Rachel Photo capture the sheer beauty of the bridal party. With 14 members strong, this bridal party was young, talented, and even more beautiful in their Blush and Blue’s. Standing aside their now, wedded friends, the bridal party and our Newlyweds prepared for a night of celebration and a little bit of dancing.
Finally… the decor is set, the floral was all in place, and the lights were shining brightly for the newlyweds to celebrate their love. As the guests are shown into the event space they are met with custom gold decor by DoTellCaligraphy, greenery filled floral with pops of color, and with the house lights dimmed, we provided our signature lighting service to spread a little FyerFly magic through out the event space.
After the beautiful first dance, dances with mom and dad, and dinner service had been completed…It was time to DANCE!
So without further explanation…Sit back, grab a brew of your choice, and enjoy the love story of Paige and Mike!

Is it time to decide on a venue for your reception or event?
Your head might be spinning trying to decide on a perfect venue to make your event come to life and impress your guests. If you are sticking with a budget, or have decided on a plain venue, keep in mind that you can turn an empty canvas into a masterpiece with the correct lighting. Lighting is key to any event. You can change the whole look of a room by adding color, design, or highlighting an important accent piece. You know that wedding cake you spent a fortune on? Why not draw attention to it by shining a spotlight right on it? Your guests will be wowed and you will feel like that cake money was well spent.
Have you ever walked into a room and instantly felt happy? Or vice versa, sad? Next time, pay attention to the color on the walls and the lighting in the room.
Believe it or not, there is a psychological side to colors. Yellow can make you feel happy and upbeat, while blue is more of a relaxing, calm color. If you are trying to pick a venue for your event and are having troubles with the feeling of the room, it could be the coloring and/or lighting. Don’t fret! You can hire a lighting specialist to use a technique called “color wash” to spread color throughout the room (*ahem* like Fyerfly!). A color wash will drape your room with any color of your choice and can totally transform your event space.
Textured lighting can add patterns on the walls, ceilings, or any space that will go along with your theme. It is a great way to fill empty space in the venue to add spark and creativity to your event. From snowflakes for a winter Wonderland theme, to vines or a pattern on the ceiling, textured lighting can add the extra wow-factor that might be exactly what your venue needed.
You know that cake spotlight I talked about earlier? This is where the technique of up pin spotting comes in. Your lighting specialist can draw the focus to any area or any special piece you would like to highlight in the room.
Adding the right lighting and color to the event can create the perfect amount of flare and spark. Up lighting also gives dimension to the room. By focusing lights on different parts of the walls or drape, the room can come alive.
Even the plainest venue space has the potential to transform into something amazing by adding the right lighting. Not sure where to begin with lighting? That is where we come in. We can plan any of your lighting designs and answer any questions you have. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or look us up at FyerFlyProductions.com !
Alfond Inn Wedding
We were honored to be a part of Laura and Rory big day at the beautiful Alfond Inn hotel located in downtown Winter Park. The hotels small town feel and boutique-style was just what the couple wanted. It’s walkability and architecture, combined with its elegance made it the perfect venue for a manageable and very personal intimate wedding experience. We loved the couple’s choice for the color palette in the reception space. The uplighting, pinspots and color wash provided by FyerFly just made the décor all come life. We wish the couple all the happiness in the world!
We love when the couple enters the room and it makes them cry 🙂 *job accomplished*
