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.

Peacock Inspired Wedding Lighting at The Woodlands

peacock inspired wedding lighting

Peacock inspired wedding lighting tied all the decor elements together for this wedding.

This wedding at The Woodlands at Algonkian Park in Cascades, Virginia shows our wireless uplights and monogram lighting combined to pull together all the decor elements for this peacock inspired wedding.

By setting the lights to two different controllers they were able to pull the teal and the blue elements from the wedding colors and paint on the walls with light. The monogram light does a great job of highlighting the beautiful stone wall in the room and personalizing it with the bride and grooms names.

Altogether the lighting helped transform the otherwise fairly plain reception space into a warm, elegant entertaining space worthy of a wedding reception.

Thanks to our friends at Bushnell Photography for the great photo!

Former Hechts Building Wireless Uplighting – Washington, DC

Hechts building after wireless uplighting.

We provided wireless uplights for Douglas Development Corporation’s corporate party this summer. The lights were used to light up the stripped down historic space for one last hurrah before being converted into a mixed use residential and commercial space.

The building had been stripped down completely to the concrete supports and the party was held in the middle of the building. It would have been nearly impossible to safely run power to each of the columns in the space and wireless uplights were the perfect solution for lighting up the space.

Over 200 wireless uplights were used to light up the columns throughout the space and created the perfect backdrop to a fantastic party.

Here are the plans for the new Hechts building.

Two Color Uplighting, Amber and Blue with Cake Spotlight

wireless uplighting with blue and amber uplights

Blue and amber wireless uplights create a two toned uplighting effect with white under the table lighting with wireless uplights. A cake spotlight makes the cake pop.

Two color uplighting is a great way to create a high end look. In this example at the Gaithersburg Marriott in Maryland, they used our battery uplights to create a blue and amber color combination.

They also used 2 of the wireless uplights to create a nice under the table lighting effect for the sweetheart table. The photo also shows our rental cake spotlights that help make the cake pop at the reception.

The second photo shows a bigger view of the room where you can better see how the cake spotlight really makes the cake pop out and how the under the table lighting makes the sweetheart table pop on the stage.

They used a screen and a projector to show a slideshow and used one of our monogram designs on the screen before and after the slideshow when it wasn’t playing the video.

So when you are looking to rent uplights in Maryland check out what we have to offer and see how much you’ll save.

Wedding Lighting at Molan Lave Vineyard in Warrenton, VA

A high arched ceiling and simple walls are pretty plain for a wedding. Brighten the walls and the room and pull together your color by renting wireless uplighting and a rental monogram light.

A lot of venues like vineyards are amazing outdoors and offer a great cocktail hour experience but their reception spaces can be somewhat plain. Lighting is the lowest cost option to transform the space for your wedding and make it completely personalized.

Simple walls are enhanced with a monogram and a purple uplighting.

Even with daylight in the room the uplights did a great job pulling together the bride and groom’s colors and creating the perfect ambiance for their wedding.

Virginia Tech Wedding – Whitehall Manor Wedding Lighting

lighting at whitehall manor cake spotlight renal uplighting and texture lighting

Cake spotlight, texture lighting and uplighting at Whitehall Manor for a Virginia Tech inspired wedding.

Lighting is the difference between your wedding being forgotten or your wedding being unforgettable. We make it easy and affordable for anyone to create an unforgettable wedding.

This wedding features Monica and Ray, a couple who met and had a love for Virginia Tech. Their cake featured two Hokie Birds dressed up for the wedding as a cake topper and a beautifully elegant tree and maroon and orange leaf motif climbing the tiers of the cake. Without a cake spotlight the cake would have been in the dark, the Hokie birds would have been missed, and the elegant design would have been forgotten. Smartly they had a cake spotlight on the cake to illuminate the details that they had put so much thought into.

A scroll texture pattern light was used in conjunction with the organic elements that they used throughout the rest of the wedding decor. Amber was an elegant choice that matched the existing lighting temperature of the fixtures in the space and warmed up the beautiful  historic features of the venue. Wireless uplights are a perfect match for historic venues like Whitehall where power isn’t necessarily where you want to place lights.

Together the elements worked together to create the perfect inspired elegant and romantic atmosphere that highlighted the important details in their decor for their wedding making it unforgettable. Go Hokies!

Wedding Uplighting – Army Navy Country Club – Arlington, VA

cake spotlight with amber uplighting

Uplighting and a cake spotlight can transform a reception space.

We had the opportunity to work with the Army Navy Country for a wedding to provide entertainment and lighting. They have a beautiful ballroom that we were able to enhance with wireless uplighting and a cake spotlight package.

The couple used lighted LED branches for their centerpieces that worked perfectly with the amber uplighting that we used throughout the space. This particular room used 26 uplights throughout to create a warm amber glow.

The cake spotlight created a focal point using the beautiful cake the couple had created for their wedding. The combination of lighting helped transform the ballroom creating the perfect atmosphere for the wedding reception.

Thanks to Bushnell Photography for the wonderful photos!
