Lighting, Draping, Drama: How to add pizzazz to your special day!

One of the things we pride ourselves on at The Historic Post Office is that we provide our couples with a blank canvas for their wedding day. Between the white brick walls and the high ceilings, the possibilities are endless! We love that every wedding is unique to the couple and doesn’t look quite the same as the last.

If you’ve been following the HPO on social media, then you’ve seen photos of our upgraded lighting package, rented drapery backdrops, and rented additional lighting. We want to highlight a few options that we think will help you bring your event to life!

HPO Upgraded Lighting

Here at the HPO we have an additional lighting package that includes uplights, pinspots, and gobo’s. If you’re thinking, “what in the world does that gibberish mean?” Never fear, we’ll include photos to help! You can upgrade your rental package through the HPO to include uplights, which help to light up the walls for an added “wow” factor. Something sort of like this, programmed to the color of your choice:

Gobo’s can be programmed with a pattern or monogram of your choosing. We can place those to be displayed on the floor or on the walls – whatever you’d like!

Drapery at the HPO

At this time, we don’t offer drapery for our clients but we welcome you to rent from companies who can provide you with the backdrop of your dreams! For example, this lovely number from Graceful Designs.Fowler Studios

Additional Lighting

And if you really want to step things up a notch, you can rent drapery, additional lighting, and chandeliers to be installed from the ceiling. This requires scaffolding and we suggest Stage Right Lighting (their work is pictured below) & Blue Steel Lighting Design for these additions. Fowler Studios Dragon Studio

All that to say, the possibilities are endless at the HPO and we’ve only just begun! We know our future couples will choose what’s just right for them and we’ll be blown away by the outcome. Happy planning to all our couples and coordinators out there!
