Reagan Building Wedding Lighting – Two Tone Uplighting

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.

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!

Fairytale Once Upon a Time Midsummer Nights Dream cake with texture lighting and cake spotlight.

Once Upon a Time Midsummer Night’s Themed Cake & Lighting

Fairytale Once Upon a Time Midsummer Nights Dream cake with texture lighting and cake spotlight.

Fairytale “Once Upon a Time” / “Midsummer Nights Dream” cake with texture lighting and cake spotlight.

Beautiful cake display with a fairytale “Once Upon a Time” or “Midsummer Night’s Dream” cake. There’s lot’s going on in the photo so we’ll breakdown the elements used to create it.

  1. The purple lighting effect is from wireless uplights. This creates the base effect around the cake and throughout the room.
  2. Texture lighting is the pattern that shows up on the pipe and drape behind the cake. In this photo a simple breakup pattern was used to create a light and dark dreamy feeling.
  3. Pipe and drape was used behind the cake to soften up the wall that is normally there in the room.
  4. Trees were brought in (venue actually had them in there) and put behind the cake. We hung fairy berries in the branches to create slowly glowing magical firefly effect.
  5. Under the table lighting was achieved but using two of our wireless uplights.
  6. Candles and flower petals were used around the base of the cake with a  fabric wrap on the bottom of the cake stand to help feature the detail of the cake.
  7. Cake spotlights were used to help the cake stand out in the room and completed the look.

These lighting elements combine to create a beautifully dreamy and elegant atmosphere turning the cake from just a dessert sitting in the dark into a decor piece.

Venue: Ft. Belvoir Officer’s Club – Ft. Belvoir, VA

White Uplighting – Hotel Monaco – Alexandria, VA

white uplighting hotel monaco va

White uplighting enhances the beauty of a wedding at Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, VA.

White uplighting is an elegant way to transform a hotel ballroom for a wedding. Wireless uplighting elegantly enhances the elegant ballroom at Hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria, VA.

Pin-spot lighting on the centerpieces makes the clean and elegant white flowers pop.

A cake spotlight makes the cake shine and shimmer and looks amazing in the white color scheme used for the wedding. This lighting works really well with the monogram lighting that is projected behind the cake for a beautiful way to personalize the space.

Texture lighting of a vine at the far wall of the ballroom adds a touch of elegance to the stale hotel ballroom walls.
