Vibrant Amber & Red Western Themed Event Lighting at The Wigwam Resort!

Architects always say bring the outdoors in and that’s just what we did at the Wigwam this past weekend.  Massive western desert landscape murals projected onto the walls and beautiful sunset colors totally transformed this space.

Western Themed Event Lighting can be a challenge when you’re trying to avoid literal old west imagery like cowboys, boots, horses and guns.  So instead, we went with a western landscape theme in our lighting and image projections.  Red & amber uplighting around the ballroom created a warm sunset feel that coordinated with the western desert skyline images projected onto the wall.  The company logo in the center of the room between the 2 skylines was a nice bright focal point right above the DJ and dance floor.  Later in the evening when we turned down the lights & changed the room uplighting for dancing you could hear the crowd literally say “Wow” at the same time.   To complete the western theme the client used cowboy hats, handkerchiefs, cactus and boot shot glasses on red & white checkerboard table cloths.  They also brought in a line dance instructor, DJ, casino tables and green screen photo booth to round out the night’s entertainment.

The architecture, decor, location and history make The Wigwam the perfect venue for a western themed event!  The staff is always friendly and the zoned ballroom lighting is a dream for us lighting designers!
