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.
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.
