Austin Event Lighting creates beautiful spaces for special events. We design lighting, audio/visual, and production solutions for weddings, private events, concerts and one-off productions.
Lighting is one of the most overlooked yet important elements of interior and exterior decorating. Our lighting techniques and equipment build drama by layering light to achieve a desired atmosphere. Austin Event Lighting establishes the mood and ambiance that transforms any environment into a memorable experience.
AEL transforms venues for brand activations, corporate functions, weddings, and one-off productions. Intelligent and scenic lighting, trussing, custom stages, projection mapping/VJ, full production and concept creation/implementation.
One stop for all your event needs.
Lighting can be the biggest factor in creating the perfect mood for your event. It can transform a space into an elegant, golden-age affair or make you feel like you’ve stepped into a shimmering, neon world of disco light. We love shaping events with the right products to get that unforgettable look.
Our Inventory includes all the right equipment for your next event. Seamlessly controlled battery lights, energy-efficient LED Edison string lighting, the latest intelligent lighting found in festivals throughout the world, we have the best solution for your lighting needs.
THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF OUR INVENTORY
Think of trussing as the Legos of the production world. Trussing is used to build structures and provide the “backbone” for lighting, video and sound elements. Whether rigging trussing from other structures, or elaborate ground supports, we can provide the right expertise to keep the environment safe and non-obtrusive.
We utilize industry-standard, Global Truss to build and support our designs. Austin Event Lighting offers every size, angle, or diameter truss you need to ensure your design is possible. With a variety of chain motors and self-climbing roof stems available, we can build even the most complex structures.
Austin Event Lighting also utilizes cad software to illustrate our designs to clients. This allows early visualization of the concept and quick changes throughout the planning. We can also wrap most of our structures in white, black or custom-colored fabric.
STAGE PANELS DESIGNED FOR LUXURY
Our sister company, HK Stages, works in unison with Austin Event Lighting to bridge the gap between staging and production. With this partnership, we’re able to offer industry-leading AS2100 Bil Jax stage decks in a variety of sizes, shapes and heights.
Aesthetics are incredibly important to us, so each panel features a rich, black polypropylene top. We can also offer custom stage covers including carpet, custom vinyl and acrylic options. Pleated or non pleated skirting, acrylic or translucent side panels, and video wall options are also available stage upgrades.
THE BRILLIANCE OF BRIGHT VIDEO AND CLEAR AUDIO
Never has video played a larger part in event productions than present day. Austin Event Lighting has worked with 3-D video mapping using high-definition projectors, built elaborate HD video wall structures, and tied vast arrays of LED flatscreens together for national brands. We understand the technology and know how to visualize your message with the best equipment in the industry.
Our staff also has a vast knowledge of audio equipment that allows us to bring in everything from powered speakers for an auditorium to a full line array system for a 5,000 person concert. We can also provide backline, microphones, consoles, DJ equipment, monitors, and sound engineers. The right equipment with the right technicians.
Top brands with unparalleled service.
360 DEGREE INTEGRATION
Austin Event Lighting was created to bring many production elements under one roof so that planning is streamlined, processes are effective and time is used efficiently. With most of our clients being from out of town, we understand how to quickly communicate and design a concept that properly meets the client’s needs.
Using CAD and lighting visualization software, we plan projects months in advance to help dial in every detail. From creating a visual representation of a design with full power and signal layouts to creating back-up solutions with further redundancies, we plan everything out. Austin Event Lighting has also formed partnerships with the best fabricators, designers, caterers, and event industry professionals in the nation to bring clients a vast network that knows how to work together. Permits, food, vendors, sponsors, security, restrooms, fencing, water, the list goes on, but we can help you check everything off.
Let us work for you.
Austin Event Lighting started with the loving support of a mom. Who just so happened to own a wedding venue in local Austin, Texas :) …..so weddings are somewhat of a specialty to us. From outdoor receptions with crystal chandeliers and Edison-style festoon lighting, to Grand Ballrooms with pin spots for your centerpieces and up-lighting to transform the space, we can take your wedding to the next level. Bridging our experience with concerts and intelligent lighting design, we can also take your party and dance floor to match an LA Nightclub! Give us a call and we can create a custom quote to match you vision.
Birthdays, anniversaries, block parties, graduations, or just that moment when you want to host an unforgettable party, Austin Event Lighting knows how to make it happen. We’re all about coming up with a custom lighting design for making your dreams a reality. Let us get imaginative with our resources to create another great memory with your friends, coworkers, and yes, even those pesky relatives. :)
Live music lighting is our specialty. Whether it’s an acoustic, solo artist that needs some background effects or a full festival with multiple stages, we understand how to develop a plan that works for the client. We carry the most innovative lighting equipment in the industry by High End Systems, Martin, Elation, and Chauvet Professional, as well as have the resources to scale a production to fill any size stage. We can also supply video elements including original content, video panels, LED panels, projector mapping, pro-level lasers, and VJ capabilities. Let us know your vision and we can make it a reality.
From live mural renderings to framed, irreplaceable pieces of history, we have the ability to deliver a range of lighting solutions to meet your needs. Our team can bring in motors from the ceiling, pipe-rigging or trussing solutions to meet any space’s challenges. Indoors or out, 12’ x 30’ or framed canvas, live art or digital, we can provide an array of solutions for your next event.
Fashion shows present an array of challenges that face every planner. From challenges with the location, to the design, to the build out, to even the power, the team at Austin Event Lighting understands how to translate through the vision to the final product. We can help coordinate the production and have some amazing relationships to insure the job gets done right. But truly, it’s all about the pictures, so we use the best fixtures on the market to get that perfect color temperature.
We are a turn key operation. Austin Event Lighting can coordinate not only the lighting, staging, trussing, and power of your event, but we work with the best in video and sound to deliver a one-stop-shop for producers. We’ve worked all the major venues in the Austin landscape, but also have the ability to organize and operate in parks, parking lots, or other “unusual areas” that spring up. Our team also understands the importance of a timeline, so we offer Run-of-Show services to insure permits get filed, logistics are planned, and deadlines get met. Multiple years running through the SXSW festival has given us some amazing experience that we look forward to applying to your next event.
We work with clients of all sizes.
