John Farr Lighting {Vendor Love}

I first started using John Farr back when he was just starting out in the event lighting business in DC. This was before I had kids, was married or had even met my husband. So a long time ago!  We met working on a wedding I was doing at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town and the rest, as they say, is history.

We have worked together hundreds of times since because, not only do John and his team do an awesome job, but John is a really honest, ethical, great guy. He always works hard to do the absolute best work for his clients and at a fair price. And in this business, that is gold.

No matter what loops we throw him, John has always handled them perfectly without a word of complaint. His guys even pulled a survivor out of a burning car after a horrible car crash during the load-out of one of our weddings! Talk about a handy bunch to have around. Enjoy just a taste of the gorgeous lighting work John Farr Lighting has done for Engaging Affairs over the years!
