Create the Dance Floor with Texture Lighting

dance floor texture lighting wedding

No dance floor? No problem! Define the dance floor with dynamic texture lighting. Two texture projectors on either side of the dance floor create the space for guests to dance.

Not every venue has a defined dance floor area. Instead of bringing in a dance floor, create one using texture lighting for a fraction of the cost. Texture lighting is an effective way to create a dynamic dance floor experience.

Create the Dancefloor, Texture Lighting

One of our favorite ways of personalizing the dance floor is by using a design the couple is featuring in other aspects of their decor and creating texture lighting. In this case it was a design from the wedding couples invitations.

We helped shape the vine design into a form that would define their dance floor on a large open space they wanted to use for dancing. It not only looks good for photos but also adds some additional lighting that helps your photos turn out better.

Types of Lighting Used

This wedding also features wireless uplighting around the walls of the room in amber with pops of purple. Using pops of color at the entryway, around the stage area, and other focal areas in the space help define areas in the room and pull together linens and other elements of the wedding decor together.

White christmas string lighting around each of the archways that was already in the venue. The venue also has chandeliers on dimmers higher up in the ceiling that provide some ambient light in the room.

Cake spotlights illuminate the wedding cake so it can be enjoyed by all of your guests.

Pin-spot lighting highlights the taller centerpieces on each of the tables. Without pin-spot lighting centerpieces can appear dark, dull and drab when incorporating other lighting into your wedding.

Lighting on the cake in the form of a cake spotlight helps make the cake pop so that you can feature a beautiful design element that’s often forgotten.

Incorporating multiple lighting elements into an event creates a complete look that helps create the perfect place to have a celebration.

Reagan Building Wedding Lighting – Two Tone Uplighting

Regan building wedding lighting with wireless uplights.

Two toned uplighting can create a romantic, elegant and dramatic looks for weddings. When lighting a large space and covering unsightly room features, drape and uplights  go a really long way. Not only will the drape hide the elements you don’t want to see, drapes provide an excellent backdrop to for the uplights that will bring in warmth, color, and added light levels.

The Reagan Building in Washington, DC is a large space with soaring ceilings creating a really grand feel. The large glass ceiling provides light during the day but at night lighting is always an issue because of the large space and lack of flattering light. Offices flank either side of the main area used for weddings so large fabric sheer panels are the perfect way to hide those offices.

Use two color uplighting on tall columns and drape to create an elegant and dramatic uplighting effect.

Power is always an issue in large spaces like the Reagan building and our rental battery powered uplighting is the perfect solution. For the entire space we used 150 of our battery powered uplights to provide ambient light to the entire space.

Going with a two toned uplighting scheme reimagines the existing architectural elements into something more suited for an elegant and romantic wedding feel. The client wanted to reinforce the feeling of candlelight so we were able to use pops of amber on the second level to create the feeling of a flame that went with the candles used throughout the space.

When presented with two levels like the Reagan Building, you need to use lights at the bottom and at the transition point between the two levels. This helps continue the lighting up and create a seamless look that would otherwise be interrupted by the physical separation between the lower level and the upper level.

You can achieve this look on your own with our rental lighting and our experts have over 20 years of event lighting experience to help guide you through in creating the perfect look for your event.

Damask Texture Lighting with Blue Uplighting

Damask lighting on the wall with blue uplighting and pin-spots on the centerpieces.

Damask texture lighting on the walls help give a large space a touch of elegance for a wedding. It also helps cover up two large ugly cork boards that are located at the end of the room. Texture lighting helps cover up unsightly room features easily.

Blue wireless uplighting around the room helps give color and pull the decor items of the wedding together.

Pin-spots on the tables are the finishing touch making each of the centerpieces pop and bringing light to each of the guests tables. Using pin-spots with uplights is a great combination and brightens the center of the room for photos where the guests are.

Venue: Masonic Temple – Alexandria, VA

Pink and White Uplighting

valentines day lighting

Pink and white uplighting creates a soft elegant look.

Valentines day is this week and there is still time to create the perfect mood with our rental lighting.

This is a great example of how to rent battery uplighting to create a two color lighting look. In this example lights were set to two different remote controls and then one set was programmed to pink and the other set was programmed to white.

Pink and white work really well together to create a soft, balanced look that is perfect for dances, dinners, engagements and weddings.

When adding the additional color white it makes it feel less saturated and more elegant.

Pin-spot lighting was used on the centerpieces that really make them pop in this photo.

Venue: Army Navy Country Club

Blue Wireless Uplighting with Fresh Ideas Management

food display with blue uplighting

Blue wireless uplights help add interest to a food display.

Great example of blue wireless uplighting setup by Fresh Ideas Management  in Columbia, Missouri at an event that they catered. The uplighting added a nice touch to highlight the amazing food that they had created for their corporate event.

Our event was not a wedding, but rather a high-end party for a small corporate group. Brian and Superlative Events were so wonderful to work with! Very professional and extremely customer service oriented. The equipment I rented was top-notch and very simple to use. I will gladly rent again from Superlative! – Jami Jones, Fresh Ideas Management, LLC

Thanks again to Fresh Ideas for the great photo showing the lighting they setup at their event!

X-Games Aspen 2015 – Logo Lights

Xgames-2015-environmentalityPhoto of one of a few color gobo lights going out for the Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado that are running from January 22nd – 25th 2015.

We combined them with some of our battery powered uplights in our shop and grabbed a photo before we shipped them out.

Mixing together gobo lights with uplights is a great way to combine two lighting elements that work really well together.
