I got ILDs services through their partnership with Antebellum Oaks. They were in the middle of partnering while I was planning so I got passed around a bit between different ILD people as well as ILD and the venue which was mildly irritating. As far as the services go though the uplighting was perfect as far as positioning and color and it was a reasonably simple process so I would definitely recommend the services as long as it is just ILD or an already established partnership.

We knew from the beginning that we wanted to do uplighting and all that jazz to really give that "wow" factor. ILD came as a recommendation from our wedding planner, and they did a fabulous job in transforming the room.

Our venue has a lot of gold accents in the curtains, chandelier, etc and we wanted to tone it down as gold was not one of our wedding colors. We relied on their expertise to choose the right shades of purple, and they seriously did an amazing job. We were able to take advantage of their holiday deal, which included full room color + custom gobo monogram + on-site team. They also did a pin spot for our cake which really made it pop!

The entire room looked better & better as the night went on, and it truly was a magical and romantic effect.

Lighting is everything! I am sure you hear this over and over, but I cannot express enough its virtues! The color wash, and the constrasting floor patterns in my colors enhanced the ambiance with romance and warmth, you never wanted to leave! The team of installers were awesome to work with, they stuck around to get the colors and the pattern on the floor just right! Thanks Again!

Other than the fact that our uplighting color had an odd greenish hue to the amber color we requested, ILD did a beautiful job on our uplighting and dance floor pattern. I was, however, very unimpressed with the responsiveness of their staff and didn't feel as though they were very organized or professional in their email correspondence with me. After I ordered everything, signed a contract online and paid for everything, I didn't hear anything back from them, so I assumed that we were all set. A week out from the wedding I hadn't heard anything from them, so I shot the contact an email asking if everything was confirmed and ready to go for the wedding. I got a very terse and annoyingly color coded/bolded email back from some VP telling me that I hadn't provided them with tons of information that they had never requested from me. Everything ended up turning out okay, but I was unhappy with the way the whole situation was handled. Being in this business, they should understand the stress and anxiety that goes on the week before a bride's wedding, and they should be more organized and polite/accommodating with their clients. Like I said, the work was fine, but I would look elsewhere. Plenty of other companies offer the same thing, but hopefully they have more professional staff.

ILD Lighting - Intelligent Lighting Design of Texas (Austin/Houston/Dallas) responded with the following comments:

Hi Sabrina, we send out a final design confirmation email 10-15 days prior to our clients' wedding date. The confirmation email outlines final choices outlined throughout the communication about an event over months of discussion. We bold and highlight areas that are most important, so our clients can read the email easily to see what final choices and approvals are needed. We know you have many wedding items on your plate and our goal is to make our communication easy, efficient, and respectful of your time. Although you made 75% of your choices during the quote process, we wanted to check back in and make sure you were still happy with your choices. Our ultimate goal is to make sure you, the client, is taken care of. It was not our intention to stress you, but instead value your wedding day and double check all of our notes. Thankfully, you replied excitedly about your wedding date and confirmed your vendor load-in / load-out times, final color choice, and room layout. Had we known you were upset or annoyed by our communication, we would have been happy to explain our confirmation process. Your opinion is important to us! On the day of the event, we arrived on-time for both setup and clean-up and delivered the color match lighting fixtures you requested. Not mentioned, we also provided speciality black iron lanterns to line the walkway of your venue entrance and provided a beautiful pattern wash on your dance floor. Because of our fixtures are 3X more powerful than standard uplighting fixtures, you were happy we were able to save you $350+ by requiring less fixtures to make your room glow in AMBER as compared to other lighting companies. Also, we provided you with a $50 off 48-hour booking discount which helped you save on your lighting equipment & services. It is unfortunate that you have only focused on areas of your perception you were unaware of. We wish you the best in your marriage and beautiful life together with husband. Blessings - The ILD Team

INCREDIBLE. By far the most professional and organized vendor that we had. We spoke with several lighting companies (including the Texas Road Show) and ILD is far and away the most professional lighting company with whom we interacted. They did an amazing job with the lighting, and I felt that the lighting truly did make the reception for us!

ILD was a last minute addition to our wedding and they worked with us to get everything done in time. The lighting made all the difference to our reception! They worked with us to get the lighting design just right, and helped us get our custom monogram displayed. Super easy to communicate with and very professional, I wouldn't have hired anyone else!

Thanks Angelica! We adored your Four Seasons wedding - elegant, modern, and gorgeous. Your vendor team was incredible and the lilac room uplighting/color wash glow you chose was perfect! The monogram creation process was our favorite and projecting your amazing design was the highlight of our team's on-site work. Cheers to you and your husband for being workable and fun. (We appreciate you for sending over photos - they are awesome!)

The ILD team made the Chandelier Ballroom at the Bell Tower on 34th look absolutely amazing for us. Our wedding colors were purple/violet with a touch of orange (I didn't want the room to be washed out in purple). Brian (who was our designer for the event) seemed to understand what we wanted and was actually pretty inspired by that. We were not sure how to make both colors work (even if it works on the paper it is not always very easy in lighting designs and for such an original mix it had to be carefully fine-tuned). In spite of a couple of mistakes on our original contract they were quick to make the necessary adjustements and contrarily to most vendors they didn't make it stressful. Our originality was the pattern lighting that we wanted: our wedding's theme was 'Math and Science' and Brian worked a lot with us to find something fun but still classy to project on the walls. He helped a lot on the final decision and it was just super original and you could have guessed by looking at the projection that it was our wedding! All my guests (mostly scientists) were amazed by the lighting decor! The only negative point I can say is that the patterns weren't absolutely clear and neat (not as much as I would have loved). I guess they couldn't do better with the pattern that we picked but I wish they would have told us before. On the positive side let's say that they were able to make final ajustements before our arrival to match the rest of the decor and my fear of having a pinkish purple all over the place just faded away as soon as I came in. Great people to work with, I totally recommend!

We used ILD for our lighting for our reception. just amazing! It was a perfect splurge and touch to really make the room. We used amber lighting in the room, because we wanted the effect of candlle light and it really made the room. Working with this company was an absolute pleasure, we worked with Katherine, and she was so responsive, funny, and kind. She was perfect. They are so worth it! Thank you for making our room just glow that night, it was a huge hit!!!!
