We had the opportunity to work with Angel Duenas with Sky Bright Lighting on a wedding in late 2018. The wedding reception was held at Heritage Park in Sante Fe Springs (https://www.santafesprings.org/). The park itself offers unique features such as a vintage conservatory, reconstructed carriage barn, antique railroad cars and train station, and an aviary.
Our bride and groom chose an evening reception in a section of the park near the aviary and conservatory. It was beautiful and so peaceful in the mid-afternoon with the chirping of the birds in the background as we set up for the outdoor event. What truly made the setting spectacular was the way Angel made the park setting come to life! The park would have been very dark and unwelcoming without his unique gift for design with the exquisitely lit trees and subtle lighting. The trees were perfect staging in a park!

In planning all the details, don’t forget that lighting is especially important when working in an outdoor setting. Many times, when you are checking out a venue, you are visiting it during daylight hours. It’s important to think how the natural light is going to transition as the afternoon turns to nightfall. Working with a gifted lighting designer can affect the entire vision of your dream. Angel’s vision and implementation created fantastic photos for the couple and a lifetime of special memories.
