Welcome to Matt Murphy Event Lighting. We design tent and event lighting for weddings, parties and charity events in the Hamptons. Whether you want your event to have a feeling of elegance, excitement, or drama, we can help you achieve it.


Our goal is to create a flattering light in which guests look and feel their best. We want a bride to be seen at her most beautiful. People spend a large portion of their time and budget on the event design. We make sure their design does not get lost in the shadows. We look to highlight the tabletop design and make other special touches stand out.

Layers of light are very important. We love the contrast of lights and darks. A venue should never be saturated with light like Times Square. We are fond of subtle, understated elegance, yet at the same time we are not afraid to be unique and different. We love to transform a space with something totally unexpected and fun.

Our lighting creates a mood. The difference between a room with lighting versus one without it is like the difference between eating in a cafeteria under glaring white lights and dining in an upscale lounge with soft romantic mood lighting.
