Up-lighting or as the pros call it, Architectural Lighting, is how you can change your Celebration Venue’s atmosphere. Colors can change the how your event will feel. Take those tired walls that everyone’s seen 100 times before with the dimmed house lighting, and ad your own personal touch. Some couples love the feel that a completely washed wall looks in hot pink. Others, just want accent colors on some of the beautiful architecture in the room. Some just want an accent wall to draw attention to the head table or other important areas being used during the Celebration.
Which ever mood you want to create with Up-Lighting, control is the ultimate weapon. If set up properly, the person in charge of your lighting can really take command of the atmosphere in the room. From stationary colors throughout the room, to a virtual lighting storm inside the same space; a properly controlled lighting environment will help engage people on a visual level like never before.

When Project Management Meets the Ultimate Commitment
Good day to you! Whether you are an aspiring Project Manager, or someone who just said ‘Yes’, you know that there is a lot of work ahead of you when taking on an Celebration Event.
People often look to Wedding Planners for help (I found this at Huffington Post). Sometimes people have misconceptions on what a planner or what someone with the proper mindset brings to the table. I’ve decided to take it upon myself to break it all down for you. Below is a top level breakdown of the elements that need to be addressed when considering to plan your wedding. I hope it helps or at minimum reminds you of the things you need to do 🙂 -Steven www.DJYourLife.com
The Answer is NOW.
The earlier the better! Did you know that most of the top rated DJs in Manitoba are constantly evolving their skill level?
The movement for self improvement will typically yield higher expectations of price. It does for myself. As I train and build my experience levels in ways that I can translate to my clientele, I can guarantee today that my price today will be the lowest it’s ever going to be. By the time I present my services to someone later on, I could very well have given myself a well deserved raise.
This Does Not Apply to All Companies, or Individuals.
The ones that are continually improving themselves will bring their new skills to the table at their next event, and by the following morning they will have sold themselves on a better wage.
This is typically what you find with sole proprietors in the market. For bigger companies with multiple DJs on hand, they will keep costs relatively the same. The reason being, their employees are mostly part time. Their dedication is not required by the company and do not require heavy training. There are even people out there who operate on their own part time. Simply put: Part-Time Effort = Part-Time Results.
Where as a full time professional single-operator will put in the effort and funds required to educate themselves on the best practices in the industry.
When Should I Book My DJ?
Would you rather wait til all the good DJs get booked up, or would you get the best possible rate for your event even if it’s one to two years away? I personally believe that you should have the DJ booked after you find the Venue(s) and secure your dates. In some cases, you may even want to book your DJ first (that’s right). If your DJ is in high enough demand, you may want to source them out first so you know what dates you can work with before booking anything else.
Do your homework and research your DJs. If you are looking for something specific, hear what they have to say and how they are going to service you and your big Celebration.

I’d love to hear from you!
