He also loves our Tall Thanksgiving centerpiece as a festive touch, especially for Thanksgiving. For Thomas' costume, he would be the Huntsman from Snow White.
Shea Ange, the Operations Manager and Wedding Service Coordinator’s, favorite aspect of fall is, also, the weather. There is something magical about the early sunsets and the cool evenings that make fall a special time. Her ideal fall lighting would be branch fairy lights, cascading through an open space, intricately wrapped with greenery for a fresh, natural look. As for Halloween, Shea’s would want to have a costume designed as a FABulous witch, just like the classic Sander Sisters!
Becky Smith, who works in accounting here at IES, loves all things that have to do with the fall! Some of her favorite elements of fall include cool nights by the warm, crackling campfire and all the delicious pumpkin spice flavored treats that we find around these times. When she thinks of fall, she pictures an outdoor lighting design, utilizing rentals such as Cafe Lights, Up Lights, and our chandeliers, to accentuate the natural elements of the space while maintaining the cozy vibes.
