Quantity and Quality:

Did you know that for the average price a DJ is going to charge you for 8 lights, Duluth Event Lighting is coming with 30 or 40 lights? Make sure you ask how many lights you’re getting! Because Duluth Event Lighting specializes in lighting, we make sure our equipment is better than our competitors. Go with a company where lighting is their first and foremost concern.  Our inventory includes hundreds of lights and is always growing. We have been told by venues around town that there is a clear difference with Duluth Event Lighting's quality. A venue's staff told us they can walk into the room and immediately know if  the lighting is our work: "There's no comparison."

Duluth Event Lighting has been doing lighting as our only focus. Lighting is all we do, and we do it with a passion. Our staff all come from professional theater lighting backgrounds and have been working with theaters around town for over 20 years. Many of our staff have college level degrees in lighting design. A venue once told us that they could tell our lighting design stood out: "You came in here with a solid plan, the lighting looks designed and thought out. DJ's that do lighting look like they just throw out a couple of lights."

Our photo inventory proves that we have years of professional experience. The photos prove another aspect of quantity and quality that allows you to compare our services. Our reputation with your wedding venue is the gold standard, and we encourage you to ask your wedding venue event planner what they think of Duluth Event Lighting.
