Custom Design

We incorporate ideas from the client as well as lean on past experiences to create a unique look. This can range from a grand 13 foot chandelier with 76 Edison bulbs (used exclusively at The Church on Main) to a dance floor covered in chandeliers hung at varying heights, visions of a moonlit starry night using twinkle-lights, to a vision of a themed event coming to life from the ceiling down using many different design elements. Our Professional team is capable of creating one of a kind lighting fixture to custom back drop designs. We love a good challenge!

Illumination & Lighting

Creative use of up-lighting and color washes, pin spots, and string lighting are the most popular lighting services. You can change the entire look of a venue or enhance the natural beauty of the venue with up-lighting. The most cost-effective lighting technique is to envelope a space in ambient light keeping important details such as centerpieces or the wedding cake out of the dark with pin spots. Outdoor events with a canopy of bistro lights feel intimate while being functionally lit with a great decor element.

Lighting is a specialty service unique to each event. Enlisting a lighting company allows you to achieve your desired look with the confidence that you are getting the best design and well-versed advice, making your event as special as it can and should be.


Using lightweight fabrics as drapery is a simple way to instantly transform a room from cold to bold. Draping is what we do and we do it very well! Drapery can be used to cover unsightly walls, create grand entrances, transform ceilings, use in backdrops, and overall to change the look of a room, space, or venue. Fabric walls from ceiling to floor can make an incredible difference in any room. White or ivory drapery coupled with up-lighting can dramatically change the look and color of a room with the touch of a button.

Decor 1601 offers an array of drapery services to enclose, soften, divide, color, mask, or swag any area. Whether functional or decorative, pipe and drape can transform your venue into the perfect layout or set the tone to achieve the desired look for your vision.
