The Cleveland Pops Orchestra Salute to the Magnificat 1955 Founders Society

Solus Lighting LTD had the pleasure and distinct honor of lighting the VIP donor party for the Cleveland Pops Orchestra Salute to the Magnificat 1955 Founders Society event.  The VIP donor party was held in the Resource Center of Magnificat High School.  Solus Lighting LTD transformed the library into a more intimant space for cocktails and dinner before the performance.  For this particular event, Solus Lighting LTD did some general lighting through out the space.  Also, there was lighting for the food stations and bar.  The donors are given a commemorative bowl for their donation, which were on display that got Solus Lighting LTD’s extra special attention.  Magnificat High School is a special tie for Solus Lighting LTD, as our lead designer and owner is a 1997 graduate.  Check out the shots below and more on our website and Facebook page.  Contact us to see how we can light up

Refreshed and back at it

After a hard earned and well deserved weekend off, Solus Lighting LTD was back in the game this past weekend.  Last week featured a birthday party and a wedding reception. The birthday party was held on the beautiful grounds of a private club that had several lakes on the premises.  The design was a double ceiling wash, with no color stars laid over a blue wash.  Since the party was being held in a tent, we highlighted the food stations and the bar area.  The tent had clear panels for the gabled ends, and that gave our designer the opportunity to create some depth to the view with some landscape lighting.  Landscape lighting is something that we haven’t talked about so far, so bear with me as I elaborate…I’ll try to keep it short and sweet.  Landscape lighting offers a variety of effects and benefits.  First off, landscape lighting is

Last week re-cap

Hello out there in blog world.  I thought that I would take a moment and re-cap what has been the busiest week in Solus Lighting LTD history.  Ok, well it’s only 7 months in the making but still…it’s history! We were honored to have the opportunity to light the Sean Moore Memorial event.  This benefit was to raise funds to give some local students a vocal scholarship.  Many many great irish bands played the event and fun was had by all.  We took the irish theme of the event to a whole new level by projecting shamrocks on the ceiling of the main hall, as well as making the Irish flag with uplights in the new banquet room of the venue.  Check out some pics below and more on our Facebook page! After we were done creating fabulous lighting for the memorial event, we at Solus Lighting LTD took our

What is your lighting vendor doing for you?

I have been a lighting designer for over 12 years. The last 5 years, I have primarily focused my services to special events. Planners and coordinators are the lifeblood of my business, and I was hoping to get some opinions and feedback on what is most important to all of you. It doesn’t matter where you are located to participate in this discussion. After all, customer service and producing stunning events are universal in this industry. Any insight you can offer on the following questions would be appreciated: -What is your current lighting vendor doing that you like?-What is your current lighting vendor doing that you do not like?-If you could wave a magic wand and change things about your current supplier, what would you change? Other thoughts, ideas, and comments welcome!-Maureen E. Patterson
