The Lights Of Bentley Meeker

Bentley Meeker and his highly skilled design team are considered among the top special event lighting experts in the world. Meeker has lit weddings and special events for the who's who of New York and Hollywood. He has lit every U.S. President since Ronald Reagan, Mayors Giuliani, Bloomberg, Dinkins and Koch and has created the environments for the weddings of such celebrities as Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Melissa Rivers, Eddie Murphy, Catherine Zeta Jones and Liza Minelli, just to name a few. A recognized pioneer in the highly specialized art of lighting events, and an industry leader in the use of new technologies, Meeker is now poised to move the entire events industry toward becoming more environmentally responsible. Bentley Meeker is the first lighting company in New York City to announce that it will be using renewable energy sources for all of its events. They will offer all of their clients a clean, renewable alternative to traditional coal generated electricity. "With the use of renewable energy, it is now possible to create opulence without tipping into excess," adds Meeker. "I am particularly pleased that there is now an effective way for all of us to help protect the air we breathe. Also, because of the profile of our clientele and what we do, it's my hope that our renewable energy initiative will raise consciousness about the use of non-fossil fuel based energy sources for all other related and even unrelated industries."Meeker lights well over 40 events a month. He now offsets 100 percent of the electricity used with wind power.

Editors Note: Bentley Meeker, New York City's top lighting maestro, who has been responsible for making the cast of Sex in the City look incredible over the years at all their HBO premieres, was once again entrusted to create a gorgeous environment for the Sex in the City Movie premiere after-party gala at MOMA last night. Meeker tells Times Square Gossip that "lighting Sarah Jessica and the other girls with pink and fuchsia not only fits within the special theme of the night --but warm colors in that range will make almost any star look younger and sexier.

I work for Bentley on a regular freelance basis. While I can say that he's got some of the best people working for him, he personally is an ass. He's generally a spoiled, petulant and manic individual. I will say that his business sense is decent, although his style has angered many within the industry.

I think "anonymous"'s point of view is the generally accepted opinion of this guy by most people in the biz. not sure that his biz sense is all that decent though.

He is such a self absorbed primadonna. He is also getting fat. Of course he'll never get as fat as either of the Liman Brothers. Bentley Meeker is over rated and is very discriminatory in his hiring practices!!!
