Dazzling Outdoor Lights

Summer weddings at Twin Oaks Golf Course, evening patio with market lightsLights – Part 2

Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time for outside weddings! With the right lights and ambiance you can turn any patio into your perfect dream wedding. Here are some of our favorite outdoor looks.




Summer weddings at Twin Oaks Golf Course, String lights

Market lights are back and in popular demand. Many venues like Twin Oaks Golf Course already have market lights set up, giving our patio a classic nostalgic touch to allow for an intimate evening. If your selected venue does not have market lights there are many local listings that will go to your venue and take care of the set-up and take-down. Use String lights as a great alternative to decorate walls, ivy, bushes and trees to give your wedding that extra little dazzle that makes for beautiful romantic pictures.

Summer weddings at Twin Oaks Golf Course, market lights with lanterns


Chandeliers and lanterns – no longer reserved for inside only. Chandeliers are being used outside to give the venue a personal touch from the bride and groom. Used them to change the entire style of wedding from modern to rustic or rustic to traditional. One of our favorites here, is to mix in some lanterns with our market lights. This adds a little more detail to our venue. Want to make it more personalized for your wedding? Order lanterns in your wedding colors or have a monogram placed on the lantern. Later you can take the lanterns home and use them on your own patio as a keepsake.

Weddings at Twin Oaks, uplighting

Beautiful Example of Uplighting

Part 1…

Want to decorate those plain white walls at your wedding venue?

Try uplighting. Uplighting can be used to bring attention to the wedding party table, desserts, entrances and whatever else your heart desires! Add your wedding colors to the room and break up plain white walls. One of the best things about uplighting is they can change quickly to whatever color needs to be used and this can signal to your guests that it’s time to eat, toast or dance!

Gobo lighting is one of the latest trends to hit wedding walls. Gobo “Goes Before Optics” is a small stencil that slides over the light source to project any desired image on a wall, dance floor or ceiling. What’s great about this is it can be unique to you. Often times the happy couple will have a stencil of their monograms, dates or a starry night.

Charley & Amy

Military Couple

It was a regular work day…

Amy was working as a civil military contractor, her job consisted of visiting every military installation from Hawaii to the Midwest and everything in-between. Amy had met what felt like a million people on her travels, nobody had made her stop in her tracks quite like Charley did. Charley is a U.S. Marine stationed in Camp Pendleton. Amy literally walked into Charlie’s life and he became like the seagulls in Finding Nemo, “mine. mine. mine.” It was love at first sight for the both of them.

Now the couple can’t wait to get married and share their love with friends and family that will soon allow them to share a last name.
