Those chandeliers are gorgeous!!! I think some uplighting would really highlight the arches and architectural features of the place. If you have the room in your budget, I say go for it. If not, you can live without it.

i love uplights! i battled with this decision as well but ended up doing it – he had the long uplights that run the length of the wall and i had them set on red for dinner but when dancing came we had him have the lights change colors – i think it really helps set a tone and makes it more romantic looking – plus it got everyone in the dancing mood when the colors started to change.

here is a picture of my candle centerpieces – you can see the red glow of the room in the background

sorry the pic is so big! i cant figure out how to resize

$350 in this market seems high to me. See if you can negotiate -it always help to have more light for the photographer. It is a very simple task and you might even be able to get some guys from a local theatre department or university to do it for $100.

I paid $350 for my uplighting and thought it was worth every single penny!!

It really finished the room! 

A soft amber uplight and with all the candles in your venue would probably look amazing!

If you’re using tons of candles and those chandeliers, do you need uplighting? I think the classic beauty of that place is incrediblybeautiful and uplighting might take away from that.
