I've gotten a complaint during my first year...by the wedding planner. "That's not gonna go off all night is it?"

/shrug
/thinks to myself: not sure if serious

Happy i made you chuckle

We don't always use so many flashes, sometimes 2 sometimes 20...

for family pictures, if there isn't a nice background in the hall (happens often...) we open a full studio before the guest arrive.

During the wedding we light up the dance floor.
if there is colorful/interesting light in the hall, 1-2 flashes will be enough.
But usually in our weddings the lighting is horrible, so we light-up the whole hall.
since men and women dance separately (Jewish Orthodox weddings) there are 2 dance floors, and DOUBLE flashes.



Extra flashes also allows us to setup in advance lights in all the ceremony locations, without the need to move flashes around all night.


During the wedding all flashes are located against a wall/pillar and taped to the floor, in a way that doesn't obstruct or danger the guest.

We also always come with 2 assistants, they setup the equipment, and operate as VAL's when needed.


[P.S. the equipment and photos above are my bosses - Ariel Ravinsky - i work for him also as an assistant.
I don't have so much gear (yet )
If your curios to see his work with all those flashes,check out:

What's interesting is what becomes considered the norm for amount of lights setup at a venue, and how locale will determine if people are fine with it or not.

A small intimate affair probably won't appreciate two monoblocks firing at 1/2 power, but a ritzy downtown ballroom like the Ritz-Carlton, no one will think twice about it.

I can't tell you how much I don't care if a guest complains about my lights. We always do our best to place them as unobtrusively as possible. As long as the bride, family or planner aren't upset about it, complaints are absolutely irrelevant.
