“Luther was an absolute delight to work with for my wedding day. He took the time to go see the venue, show me different lights and did a beautiful job! I can’t wait to recommend him to all my friends for lighting needs!” - Erica Marsan

“FANTASTIC experience with Lumenate! We did a large backyard project that included adding multiple landscape and hardscape lights. Luther was great to work with from the planning phase until the very end. He brought great ideas to us to consider and was able to walk us through a demo on site that helped shape our decisions. We couldn't be happier with the finished project and would highly recommend this company to any of our friends and family.” - Rod Riley
