reception lighting

hey everyone,

shot my first wedding a few weeks ago, finished the highlight video and the long-form edit as well. can check those out here if you're curious: Michael & Catherine - Trailer on Vimeo and Michael & Catherine on Vimeo

learned a lot on that first wedding, and that's why I'm here. I need to buy some sort of light kit that I can setup on the edge of the dance floor during the reception. I don't want to put a light on top of my camera because I just don't like how that looks (the footage I mean). I'd like to have one setup in the corner that gives off a decent amount of light, without being blinding of course.

what would you guys recommend I purchase?

Re: reception lighting

Dude seriously search the forum the exact same topic was discussed just a few days ago it's still fresh on the first page if you scroll down just a little. When posting a new thread take the effort do a search & check before you ask the same question twice.

What does your reception light kit look like?

PS: Your highlight video looks great.
