  • Blue steel lighting was wonderful to work with. Kaci was responsive, professional, and had great ideas!! They lit up the house for out tent reception in multiple fun colors which created for a very party-like and fun atmosphere. They also installed some beautiful chandeliers into our tent. I would 100% recommend them for a wedding or any large event!

  • Blue Steel did the café light around the tent and dance floor as well as hanging lighting from the Magnolia tree and uplighting around the Hermitage Museum and Gardens. They were easy to work with, very communicative, listened to our needs and their set up crew went above and beyond to help our coordinator with some set up issues. Honestly, after booking and up until the wedding we didn't have the need for a lot of communication, but they sent reminders when needed and let myself or our coordinator know if there were any questions / issues. It was an easy process working with Blue Steel.

  • I am appalled at how unprofessional Blue Steel Lighting was to me. Having read the many great reviews that other brides posted, I was completely blindsided by how poorly I was treated, and think it’s only right that I make others aware of the bad service I received. Blue Steel (Michelle, the owner) cancelled on me literally 48 hrs before my wedding! Just the day prior they sent me an email stating how excited they were for our wedding. So I don’t understand what changed so quickly to make them do a 360 degree turn. If they did not want to work our wedding they should not have accepted our payment or signed a contract with us. They knew beforehand all of our wedding details, which was not anything complicated and included only a couple of light changes. I’ve treated Blue Steel with nothing but respect. To cancel on a bride so last minute is repulsive and heartless. On top of that, they brushed it off making it seem like it would be so easy to find another credible ven... Read more

    We are sorry this is how you feel about us and understand that planning a wedding can be frustrating. We have prided ourselves on first-class customer service and have garnered a stellar reputation with all of our 3,000+ past clients. So you must know that this review, 7.5 months after your wedding comes as a shock to us. We tried to accommodate your needs, even after we did not get a response from you for months after your inquiry. Having a completely booked schedule, we still tried to do your wedding even though you decided to hire us only 11 days out. Unfortunately, once we learned of certain last minute nuances about the event, our experience told us that we were not the right vendor for this and immediately refunded the money in-full, and helped to arrange other options for you that you were able to utilize as to not leave you "without". We are so glad that it all worked out and wish you nothing but the best and we are sorry that your opinion of us is not what we strive for.

  • My wife and I had a great experience with Blue Steel at the VMFA. Michelle and Kaci were extremely professional and easy to work with, and the lighting looked absolutely gorgeous at the museum and created the perfect ambiance for our wedding. We cannot recommend Blue Steel highly enough!

  • I highly recommend the Blue Steel group for any lighting needs! The service, professionalism, and attention to detail is paramount. When I found out that Michelle was a prior wedding planner it all made sense. Michelle is a calming presence and you can’t help but immediately fall for her positive attitude and loving nature. I didn’t originally plan to have lighting but once I saw what they had previously done I knew it would be the icing on the cake. I was unsure of the exact thing I wanted but I knew the effect I wanted. Michelle and Kaci came out and viewed the venue site with me. The communication from the start was responsive and consistent. Blue Steel gave me a variety of lighting options and was willing to listen to my wants versus my budget versus their costs. Ultimately we settled on an outside twinkle canopy. Wedding day came and rain was in the forecast. The day before Michelle called me to talk our options out. I still wanted twinkle lighting and while the origin... Read more

  • The Blue Steel team is incredible!!!!!! Blue Steel Lighting seriously knows how to transform a space - I was hesitant by the extra expense, but it is so incredibly worth it. Blue Steel did an excellent job creating a soft, romantic ambiance for the ceremony and dinner, and then proceeded to transform the venue again when our epic dance party broke out. We also had Blue Steel set up bistro lighting at our indoor venue - and guests remarked on how they felt like they were outside! Finally, I had a very specific vision for a bar that was going to be a focal point for our wedding - and Blue Steel listened to my ideas (patiently!), helped me brainstorm the perfect plan (even drew a little mock up so I could visualize everything!) and then executed my vision flawlessly! I couldn't be more pleased with Blue Steel and would recommend them to any bride that wants the perfect mood lighting (and/or specialty lighting!). This team is unreal.

  • Blue Steel did the most phenomenal job transforming our Wedding space into an absolute fairy tale! I absolutely loved working them and throughout the planning process they were extremely responsive to all my questions. I want to give special props to Michelle for really putting together my exact vision, Kaci for her top notch communication with me, and Patrick for running all the details the day of and making everything perfect! I highly recommend using their services!

  • Michelle, Jeremy and the Blue Steel team are AMAZING!! When I decided to get married in Williamsburg where I grew up, I started online searches for weddings to get a sense for the vendors. Blue Steel came up in every single one of the weddings I looked at and in particular for the weddings I liked! So I immediately contacted them even before I had my planner as I wanted to get on their books - thank goodness I did! I got married in a ballroom as a practical matter (more convenient for elderly guests) but really wanted the ballroom transformed as I wasn't a big fan of the carpet and walls. Blue Steel literally made it into a completely different room with their lighting and design. It was incredible!! Also I had a garden theme I wanted brought to life and Blue Steel not only did lighting but helps engineer the overall design including a whole dance floor structure, bringing in all sorts of trees and shrubbery and hanging lanterns from the ceiling to create an intimate atmosphere that wa...

  • Michelle & Caitlyn are WONDERFUL!! Both of them are so sweet and very professional at what we do. We got married at the Chrysler Museum & seriously, you can't have the perfect wedding there without uplighting! It really helped create and transform the venue especially with the columns. Everyone loved the gabo on the wall - we heard so many great things about it!! Highly, highly recommend blue steel! They're amazing!

  • Blue Steel is awesome! We had guests commenting on how amazing the lighting was at our wedding. They set the entire mood for the evening and do an amazing job! They were a little more expensive than a few other vendors, but they are so worth it! Technician on site all night, you worry about nothing! Gorgeous!

  • We booked Blue Steel Lighting Design for our wedding and it was one of the BEST decisions that we made!! I cannot say thank you enough to Michelle, Jeremy, Caitlyn, and the rest of the team for their kindness, support, hard work, and dedication! Starting with the first appointment, the customer service was off the charts I knew that Blue Steel would make our reception venue look gorgeous and fit the vibe that we were going for and sure enough, they did!! The draping, lighting, trees, and all of the other little touches that Blue Steel did really made our reception come together and transformed the space. We feel blessed to have had such a dedicated and brilliant team with us on our wedding day. Thank you to the entire Blue Steel team!!

  • Blue Steel did an AMAZING job with the lighting and tent decor at our wedding reception. They did 3+ site visits to ensure that we had the right type of lighting for the evening (tented outdoors at the house I grew up in) and were AMAZING when we needed to shift our layout to our rain plan. I HIGHLY recommend.

  • Blue Steel did an excellent job lighting our outdoor wedding! the lighting has turned out beautifully in the pictures and the set up looked exactly as i hoped. there was a little bit of a hiccup when the fountain that we wanted lit up ended up not happening- i think there was some confusion because the weather was iffy as to whether we would remain outside. But Kaci was quick to respond and address it and refunded that portion of our contract. They were so easy to work with and offered excellent customer service and communication!

  • Jeremy, Michelle, and the Blue Steel team were great. We didn’t have an option to go with another company, which is somewhat frustrating because Blue Steel is very expensive, however I think the end result of the lighting we chose was very simple and made everything look elegant. It took us awhile to all get on the same page but once we did everything was very easy, they took care of the rest and our wedding looked beautiful.
