Services at AXIS Pioneer Square

AXIS Pioneer Square is a beautiful special event venue located in the classic Globe Building of Pioneer Square. This versatile space centers on a row of 18′ tall brick arches gracefully combining the historic textures of the 1890 building with subtle industrial modern touches.

As the former home to the Elliott Bay Book Company, many Seattleites spent joyful hours wandering these floors, and the resurrection into AXIS has garnered universally rave reviews.

Crimson Haze is proud to partner with AXIS for all your custom lighting needs.

Café-Style String Lights

Create a lovely overhead ambiance with our charming, café-style string lights (sometimes called “Italian lights” or “bistro lights”).

Our string 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. (Many 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 offered by glass incandescent bulbs. Our bulbs are warm white on their brightest setting and become a golden “candlelight” amber 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.

Fairy Light Backdrop

Our Fairy Light Backdrop provides a bright, warm white glow and is a great backdrop for your ceremony, lounge, sweetheart table, dessert display, and more.

Each Fairy Light Backdrop is a maximum of 11 feet tall and 10 feet wide.


Elevate the ambiance of your event with stylish wireless chandeliers.

These luxury fixtures are fully dimmable to provide adjustable levels from a soft warm glow to full dazzling brightness.

Our chandeliers look great in the AXIS archways!

Wedding Inspiration: Stacey & Marc

Stacey and Marc loved the warmth and romance of AXIS and wanted to complement it with soft lighting and fabric.

Our antique style string lights — a perennial favorite at AXIS — provided an intimate and charming ambiance in both rooms. We coordinated softly draped ivory fabric for the archways, paired with our pretty Fairy Light Backdrop for the ceremony backdrop and then head table backdrop for reception. For a few more pops of light, we illuminated their cocktail rounds with white linens to give them a soft glow. Dreamy!
