Café-Style String Lights

Create a lovely overhead ambiance with our charming, café-style string lights

Our string lights (sometimes called “Italian lights” or “bistro lights”) are always installed with a fully adjustable dimmer, enabling a variety of different moods — for instance, brighter for your ceremony, a bit lower for dinner, and turned way down for mood-lighting when it’s time to dance. Most other lighting vendors use products that are NOT dimmable!

String lights are one of the few places where we intentionally avoid using LEDs, opting instead for the warmth and style of traditional glass incandescent bulbs. Our bulbs are warm white on their brightest setting and become a golden “candlelight” color as they dim — romantic and flattering!

Multiple styles are available, including bulbs handcrafted to evoke vintage 20th-century lighting with an antique finish, defined steeple, and intricate filament design.

Our high-quality, commercial-grade strings are safe for both indoor and outdoor use.

Our string lights services include:

  • Fully adjustable dimmers are always included! (Most other lighting vendors use products that are NOT dimmable!)
  • Experienced, insured, professional installation, which is especially important for overhead lighting.

Different styles:

Please note that string light installations are venue specific.

Feasibility and cost vary depending on the complexity and scope of the project.
