What makes Bellevue Lighting different?
We create memorable moments.
We’re not here to just make your space look good. We want your space to feel good as well. The #1 theory in lighting is if you notice the lights, you haven’t done your job right. And we stand to that. You won’t notice our lights because of how we manage to transform the space.
We create experiences.
Any event can stand out as a good time. But we want to create something that transports you, inspires you, and captivates you to take you away from the real world and experience something truly extraordinary.

The Technical Stuff
There are two types of smoke alarm systems: particle and heat. Particle sensors go off when they meet a threshold of particulates (fog creates particulates). These are no fun for fog effects BUT different techniques or fluids can help to avoid an alarm.
Are fog and haze safe? What are they made of?
We can also make fog with dry ice (frozen liquid nitrogen) or regular ice. But a combination of the 3 is best.
Do snow machines make a mess? Do they damage fabrics or carpet?
