BlueSpeed AV Wins Big At International Competition For Lighting Design
Tulsa AV integrator BlueSpeed AV has been selected as a global winner for the 2020 Lutron Excellence Awards for their lighting and technology design for Oklahoma wedding venue Esperanza Ranch. The Lutron Excellence Awards recognizes the world’s best in lighting and shading control technology. With help from BlueSpeed AV, Esperanza Ranch is now a top pick destination for weddings and special events of all kinds.
The secluded 250-acre Ranch is nestled along Route 66 in Luther, Okla. and includes a 2800 sq. ft. 18th-century barn venue, bridal suite, groom lounge, main residence house, and four more supporting buildings – all of which connect to one technology and lighting system for easy venue control.
“Technology and lighting aren’t only for new construction or the city,” said Ryan Sullivan, owner of BlueSpeed AV. “With the right plan, you can still live in the country and have access to leading technology.”
Two significant components of the venue’s instinctual lighting are occupancy sensors and the timing of sunset. For example, when guests walk into the barn or any of the other unique spaces, the surrounding lighting intuitively adjusts to the perfect levels. As the sun sets, the building’s shades lower, interior lights dim, and patio, landscape, and waterfall lighting all transition flawlessly. When guests want to make changes to the lighting, every building comes with a dedicated iPad interface and keypad for easy control and one-touch AV shortcuts for music streaming and television options.
“The venue technology helps present a consistent experience of what their special day will look like,” said Mindy, owner of Esperanza Ranch event venue. “It leaves the renters confident in what they will be walking into on their wedding day instead of worried if everything is going to work when they need it to.”
Tours of the Esperanza Ranch and its technology experience are available by appointment at esperanzaranch.com.
