With dynamic lighting to help tell the story of their wedding, their elegant reception effortlessly transitioned to a bold, retro-style after-party.

The allure of St. James Church was beautifully showcased in Perry and Chris’ heartwarming ceremony. The stunning wood features of the church provided a rich, warm backdrop, enveloping Perry and Chris as they embarked on this new chapter of their journey together. The church exudes an atmosphere of timeless elegance, resonating with the couple’s love.

The celebration continued with an awe-inspiring reception. Set in a tent that stretched toward the heavens, the atmosphere exuded an air of summer enchantment. The surrounding waters added a touch of natural magic to the setting, creating a dynamic interplay between the elements.

The reception space came alive with statement lighting that beautifully complemented the summery ambiance. Our lighting design team worked tirelessly to infuse the environment with an ethereal radiance, collaborating with HMR Designs who masterfully implemented the gorgeous lighting clusters seen throughout the reception. Soft lights danced around the tent, casting a warm and inviting glow that embraced the guests in a sea of tranquility.

But the magic didn’t stop there. The reception effortlessly transitioned into a vibrant after-party, taking the festivities from day to night in a whirlwind of excitement. A red carpet unfurled, inviting guests to experience a sense of Hollywood glamor as they stepped onto the dance floor adorned with disco balls that scattered shimmering reflections across the space, achieving the nightclub atmosphere our team at Griffin + Griffin wanted to create. The dance floor was captivating, bathed in dynamic lighting in shades of purple and red light, casting an enchanting spell that enticed everyone to let loose and dance the night away in celebration of Perry and Chris. 

On the gorgeous coast of Maine, Perry and Chris celebrated their union and showcased the transformative power of love and celebration. Their journey, from the radiant daylight ceremony to the bold and enchanting after-party, was a testament to the magic of two souls intertwining. The rich wood accents of St. James Church, the summery tented reception, and the disco dance floor all played a part in crafting a truly memorable day that transitioned seamlessly from day to night, leaving an indelible mark on everyone fortunate enough to witness it.

We are thrilled to have worked with the team at HMR Designs and SoCo Events to help create this perfect day to night celebration for the couple and their friends and family!
