To color the room with enough light you'll want to make sure you have enough lighting fixtures to cover the entire circumference of the room. Rather than purchasing these expensive fixtures you can often times rent them from your local production company or maybe even a local entertainment.
Now comes the tricky part - balancing the light. Our goal here is to fill in the shadows on the face caused by the sun...those under the eyes, nose and chin. To achieve this look you want your subject to be lit about 1-1.5 stops brighter then the background. I use a handheld light meter to first meter for the ambient light falling onto my subjects. Then, using a pocket wizard I trigger my flash, adjusting until I have a reading abut 1-1.5 stops above my ambient reading. So say the ambient reading is ISO 200, 250th of a second at f 5.6. I adjust my flash to give me a reading of about f 8.0. My preference is always to keep my f-stop as low as possible. This makes the depth of field small as well which means your background will go slightly blurry which in turn helps to emphasize your subject.
Here is another idea of something you can try when you are figuring out how to surprise your husband on your wedding anniversary:
