Bright Ideas brings
love & light
to your special event!

Bright Ideas guarantees your event will look fabulous, innovative, and will be safely installed. Although it is a small independently owned business, prices are competitive with other larger companies that offer similar services. Bright Ideas specialty is providing custom lighting – using natural surroundings such as trees, buildings, etc. – to give the scene a natural, organic feel, while at the same time being environmentally conscious. All supplies are reusable, waste is kept to a bare minimum, and the natural landscape is always treated with respect.


Bright Ideas always provides on-site consultations absolutely free! Contact us by phone at (760) 230-1724 or (760) 613-7780, or you can email us here.

About Us

About Us

Bright Ideas is a festoon lighting business owned and operated by Anne and Kirk Fagergren. Anne and Kirk met while surfing in the Pacific Ocean, instantly fell in love and tied the knot on the beach two years later. Their own wedding was the inspiration for starting the business. After planning and lighting their own wedding site, people started to ask about their services… and Bright Ideas was born!

Kirk comes from a long line of electrical engineers. He is a Journeyman Electrician, is the Lead High Voltage Electrician for UCSD Medical Center, and is a modern-day Macgyver. He loves surfing, fixing things, and making fine art out of found objects.

Anne has a degree in social work and is on many committees that support and plan community events. She has a calm and enthusiastic energy, and loves working with clients to plan out the perfect lighting scheme for their special event. In addition to expert lighting advice, she is also a wealth of resources for anyone tackling the task of planning a special event.


The love light and energy at the most special and intimate events we are a part of is pure magic. From the moment guests arrive to the last dance and the final guests depart the energy and light grows and changes. It is festive and beautiful; it moves us every time. While we take our lights down we can still feel it in the after glow. These videos showcase this energy, light and love so beautifully. Enjoy – guaranteed to make you smile!
