“Mr. MacMicking is professional, friendly, dependable, and easy to work with. He listens to what you are trying to accomplish, and then describes the different types of lighting available to make that happen. Not only did we end up with a beautiful and memorable event at 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center to close out our Smithsonian Water/Ways Exhibit, we also learned how to more effectively light our other exhibits in the future. Thank you, Jim!"

“I worked with Fairhope Event Lighting on the Grand Opening of my business and Mr. MacMicking was an absolute delight to work with. From start to finish, he had a complete vision for what I needed. He was thorough, professional, and friendly through the whole design process. He took my ideas and elevated them to create the perfect ambiance for the event. I will be using him again in the future and would completely recommend him to anyone! Thanks again for all you did!"

“We worked with Fairhope Event Lighting for our barn Christmas party and the level of creativity and professionalism we received was above reproach. The final product was not only better then expected, but Fairhope Lighting went above and beyond what we asked to make our event even more magical for the children at our event. We would definitely recommend Fairhope Event Lighting and will be using them again!"

“It is so great to finally have a dependable and professional lighting company in the Mobile area. I have been in the event industry for 6 years and have worked with many different lighting companies along the Gulf Coast. Jim and his team went above and beyond for our annual Halloween event at the History Museum of Mobile. He insured that every detail was perfect and that we, as the customers were truly satisfied."
