Uplighting, Custom Gobo and Pinspots

Being a Los Angeles DJ isn't always just about music. Here is some uplighting I did for a July wedding at The Hyatt Regency in Long Beach.

The bride wanted a soft pink to match her chosen motif. My challenge was to light two different color surfaces and make them match and provide a vivid, custom gobo projection on the dance floor. And of course, I pinspotted the cake! You can be the judge on how well I did by watching the following video provided by my clients, Joel and Shirley. The lighting part of the video starts at 3:49:

On three walls I programmed the lights to get the desired color. On the whiter surface behind the head table this was looking too bright so I compensated by programming the lights slightly differently to make them match. Thanks for watching and here's to another great beginning!

I am the manager of a venue in Birmingham. I would love to know what type of lights you use. Have you any experience with the American DJ LED GOBO? Are LED lights ok for the up lights?
