Premier Venue of Upstate New York

Special Effects for Our Ballroom

A vast array of visuals designed to impress!

For couples seeking that extra special WOW factor,  we offer several premium lighting options...
 
  • Undertable accents
  • Tabletop spotlighting
  • Rustic light-up lettercraft

And while we offer the following at no additional cost, some effects require additional staff, setup, safety precautions and/or trained operation which can only be accomplished by insured technicians, who work affordably right in-house:
 
  • Iconic spotlight & pattern projection
  • Monogram / Your Name In Lights
  • Virtual mirror ball & illuminated columns
  • Custom ceiling decor

Let's examine more closely each of these amazing effects...
 
UNDER-TABLE ACCENTS
When used with translucent white fabrics, such as cocktail tablecloths, battery powered uplighting set to your choice of colors are used to adorn background areas of our venue that demand to be explored by your guests, such as the balcony lounge on our mezzanine, or on our back deck at night. Either are included at no added cost to couples who upgrade to Dramatic Lighting Decor.
 
TABLETOP SPOTLIGHTING
Up to 20 subtle spotlights installed overhead, specific to your floor plan, granting soft illumination for guests as they dine, highlighting centerpieces, and greatly enhancing photos taken at your sweetheart table or wedding cake, preset to your liking at up to four levels of brightness.
RUSTIC LIGHT-UP LETTERCRAFTS
We offer your choice of popular sets in varying sizes for a flat rate rental. Current selection consists of either "LOVE" or 12" "MR & MRS", arranged anywhere you like. Popular choices are on our stage and/or at a sweetheart table.  Rented as a set for one flat rate.

PATTERN PROJECTION
Custom die-cut settings (called gobos) can be crafted in-house to cast unique textures on virtually any surface in our ballroom. The small steel medallions are set inside a high-powered spotlight to achieve striking results such as shown above. Following your event, we preserve the gobo as a  keepsake, which many choose to fashion into jewelry.
 
YOUR NAME IN LIGHTS
Your choice of projected text and icons fashioned from any combination of your names, initials or wedding date. Alternately, your favorite song lyrics, movie quote, or verse from a poem... anything! Adorns the upper tier of our ballroom, alone or in tandem with your choice of accompanying effects. You also get a custom graphic displayed on our boardwalk marquee at no added cost.
 
ICONIC SPOTLIGHT
Whether an open lens or used with a custom-fabricated gobo (see pattern projection above), this high-powered spotlight in your choice of any 8 preset colors, including white, is manually operated to follow you during your grand entrance, first dance, or when a guest of honor appears on stage for a speech. The applications for this effect are endless and can be used as often as you see fit for a flat-rate which covers the cost of our technician for the day.
 
VIRTUAL MIRROR BALL
A classic effect, perfect for slow dances or as guests make their way in during cocktail hour. Available at no additional charge when paired with...
 
COLOR COLUMNS
Place near your main entryway, at the edge of your dance floor, or on-stage. Light cascades from inside with a color that compliments your ballroom. When coupled with dramatic lightscaping, the colors inside the column change with your decor and even pulse to music!

CUSTOM CEILING DECOR
Available by request, we can install decorative elements you provide, arranged any number of ways from key points in the high ceiling of our ballroom - over 25 feet high!  Quotes are determined by the scope and complexity of your desired effect, which includes insurance for items suspended overhead. In the picture above, white oriental lanterns have been accented by our dramatic lighting decor for a wildly colorful effect over the dance floor.
