The Right Kind of Lighting Can Really Make Your Wedding Day Glow

There’s a lot of glow that happens on a wedding day. The glow comes from the couple, for sure—there’s a certain kind of lit-from-within thing that happens when you’re getting married. As soon as you’re engaged, you emanate this light that sticks with you from the beginning to the end. And it’s not just the bride, either, a groom glows too. The natural lighting that shines on your day is a huge deal, of course, because your photos rely on it. Your photographer will bring lighting in case it’s needed for a few shots, but once you get into your cocktail hour and reception, the lighting in the room just brings an energy to your celebration.

Well, guys, we’re going to tell you a secret: Usually the wedding day lighting is an extra, but if your venue is Mint Springs Farm, you’ve lucked out! We’re a wedding venue just outside of Nashville and we’re all-inclusive. The lighting that “comes with” our event packages is awesome. Find out exactly what kinds of light do the most for your wedding day. Bonus – they’re yours when you tie the knot at Mint Springs Farm.

It’s one thing if your venue has epic natural lighting, it’s another when their party spots glow, too.

Once your day-of shots and portraits have been snapped, you will float into the fun part. That’s not to say that the vows aren’t a good time, (obvi, they are!) with statement lighting all around you.

Chandeliers in the open-air ceremony pavilion, chandeliers in the reception barn, string lights strung over the patio, uplighting on the walls. Don’t forget about pin spot lighting that accents all of your important parts (your centerpieces, your sweetheart table, your dessert display).

Oh, did we mention it’s all included?
