BizBash Names Got Light as 2014 Winner of Best Event Lighting Design

We are proud Got Light has been recognized as a national leader in event lighting design.

BizBash, the leading trade media for event and meeting organizers and event marketers, announced the Event Style Awards Winners on October 28, 2014 in New York City during a special ceremony celebrating excellence in the meeting and event industry. After reviewing thousands of submissions from across North America, a panel of meeting and event experts named Got Light as the winner in the Best Event Lighting Design category.

Inspired by designers Russell Holt and Jon Retsky, Got Light offers over 35 years of combined experience in lighting design and event production. Their team of passionate designers, producers, cinematographers, and engineers are industry experts at layering in color, texture, kinetic movement, and subtle highlights, taking events from "lit" to "WOW!"    

“Receiving our first BizBash award, as determined by fellow event professionals, is an extremely flattering honor,” says co-owner Jon Retsky. “Over the past ten years, our success has been built on creatively transforming empty spaces by employing innovative solutions and designs,” explains co-owner Russell Holt. “We are proud Got Light has been recognized as a national leader in event lighting design.”

For the wedding at Big Sur’s Ventana Inn in California, Got Light worked alongside celebrated event producer and caterer Paula LeDuc Fine Catering, Zephyr Tents, and under the direction of designers Preston Bailey and Ken Fulk to execute the high-profile couple’s vision of a performance-art project set in an enchanted forest. The bride and groom were married under a glade of towering 500-year-old redwoods amid a soft, radiant glow. Later in the night, the team turned the forest into a high-energy dance party with dramatic lighting and colorful moving lights illuminating the canopy of trees, while fanciful landscape lighting immersed the surrounding hillsides. Nearly all of the lighting fixtures for the event were specially suspended by Got Light, under the guidance of a professional arborist consultant, in the natural forest without damaging it and without creating the risk of fire.
