At Moonlighting, it's always a welcoming phone call when we are presented with an opportunity to do a lighting design/install that's a little outside the box.
We were contacted by a very excited future, mother-of-the-groom who was going to be hosting an outdoor engagement party for her son, and his future bride. The home is located on beautiful marsh front overlooking the Ashley River. At the rear of the property stands a beautiful native live oak. This is ordinary oak tree though, this oak tree was hand drawn by the brides mother, as the invitation to this special event. What better way to highlight this tree, by really making it glow for the occasion.This would be the only part of the landscape that we would be lighting, which would really allow the tree to shine!
The tree is located almost 500 ft away from the house and the nearest available power source, so wiring and bulb selection would be very instrumental in capturing the live oak. We were able to highlight the tree with a series of two up lights and two down lights. The combination of both really allowed the natural, true beauty of the tree to flourish when the sun goes down. Now with the flip of the switch, the oak tree will be glowing for the engagement party and many years to come! We would like wish the young couple the best and are thankful for having the opportunity to help make their special day that much more special!
