Why should I hire a Professional Lighting Company?

profesisonal-lighting-company-mercury-slWe often get this question.  “My DJ offers uplighting. Why should we choose Mercury?”  We are glad you asked.

Over the years, there have been many DJ’s, florists, decorators and party rental companies here in Michigan that have added uplighting to their service’s list.  To make this plain and clear, they are not production companies and can not offer you the same service or equipment that we can.  We’ve all heard the expression “A Jack of All Trades” and have heard or experienced horror stories of what choosing the wrong company or vendor can cause.  This is why it is important to hire a company that specializes in the service or product you are looking for.  You wouldn’t hire an electrician to do your plumbing work, would you!? Why not? They are both in the construction business?

Make sure that you ask the proper questions while choosing the right company for your wedding lighting needs.  We often hear a client tell us that their DJ or florist is offerring them uplighting for the fraction of the cost, but what type of lighting are they giving you?  There are hundreds of different lighting fixtures on the market (the same as there are automobiles).  Your DJ may be offering you a much cheaper lighting fixture than what Mercury can offer you.  You might say, “An Uplight is an Uplight!”, but this simply isn’t true.  Photo’s are always a great reference to use when looking at different lighting options.  You will realize how much of a broad wash our lighting fixtures give after looking through our wedding lighting photos. An LED uplight that costs $100 does not even come close the intensity, color or beam spread of a $1500 fixture.  This is why there is a cost difference.  It’s ok if you are on a tight budget and can only spend a small amount on lighting. This is why MSL offers a wide selection of wall wash fixtures and packages starting at only $250.

Aside from uplighting and wall washes, there are several other important lighting component’s to making your wedding day shine! Mercury has the tools and expert’s to make your wedding beautiful.  Please contact us today to discuss how we can provide you with the look you want.  Be sure to check out our wedding lighting photo’s from venues across Michigan and the Midwest!
