I went to a outside wedding where the backyard had these great big oak trees and the trees had great lighting – but, it was more like landscape lighting vs. traditional uplighting.  In the space you are using, are there surfaces available you could light?  I’d go crazy with candlelight and use that as your fancy element, personally.

We have done quite a bit of outdoor uplighting in amber and red.  It really adds a lot to the ambiance.  I hope to have some photos up soon from an event last week. 

Here is a link to a wedding we did uplighting for: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=174578&id=273823203609

The reason you don’t often see uplighting in outdoor venues is because there are fewer surfaces to shine them on than, say, in a hotel ballroom with walls and columns.  Uplighting would get lost in open spaces, unless there were trees or barns or other surfaces for the light to bounce off.  Wonderful idea, if you have those surfaces… very outdoor-dreamy!
