Our event was not a wedding, but rather a special party for a church staff. Brian and Superlative Events was an awesome find and their wireless LED lighting is the best I've ever found to rent! Super service and the equipment is top-notch and easy to use.

Hiring Superlative Events and Brian King was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Personally, I believe that the DJ can make or break a wedding and I'm so happy I decided to go with Superlative Events. We got a lighting and DJ package. Brian King was very helpful and always willing to listen to what we wanted. He even created a monogram using our favorite video game which was a surprise for my husband and everyone loved it!

On the day of our wedding he was constantly attentive to my husband and I, he even brought us drinks while taking pictures outside to warm us up! Brian's music choices were perfect during the reception! Everything flowed smoothly and all of our guests were really impressed with him. The dance floor was constantly full, which is exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend Brian to anyone getting married in the VA/DC/MD area. You won't be disappointed!

The lights arrived on time and were very easy to use. We didn't need it, but they came with detailed instructions as well. When ever we had a question leading up to the event, Brain King emailed us back immediately, even at if it was late at night. I highly recommend this vendor.

The lights were super easy to set up and to adjust (color and brightness) during the event. They added a beautiful touch to our event. They came a couple days early and we had a few days to ship them back (in the box they came in with return shipping label provided by Superlative Events). I would recommend superlative events to anyone for up lighting. Bets of all, we saved lots of $$ over renting locally or hiring a lighting guy.

We wanted uplighting at our venue but really didn't have a very big budget for that. I also didn't think of it until the last month! Superlative Events made it easy and affordable. They were very responsive and helpful. The process is very easy.

Having uplights was a really nice added bonus for our wedding. It was one of those "nice to have" items on my list that I thought we wouldn't be able to afford. Thank you to Superlative Events for making it possible!!

I have used Superlative Events twice in the past 3 years and I would highly recommend them! If you want to turn a plain room into a very special venue, Brian is your guy! Our most recent event was a "Fire&Ice" themed Sweet 16 and Brian's vision for the lights was perfect! The room looked amazing! Brian is great to work with - very nice, accommodating, worked with me patiently as I kept changing my mind before settling on our final contract and vision. Last time I used Superlative Events for lighting and the photobooth and it was a great experience as well! Pictures turned out great and kids had a blast! Great company with great product and service!

It was wonderful working with superlative events. We rented uplighting from them. They had wonderful pricing and the uplighting was battery powered which made my wedding coordinator feel better because she did not want guests tripping on cords. The uplighting was very easy to set up and helped give our reception a wonderful glow. Definitely worth the investment and a great company to work with. Very great at communicating and being responsive. I never felt unsure any step of the way, they were very clear with shipping instructions and made it simple for us.

My husband has always loved the look up uplighting for weddings, but it can be SO expensive. Our DJ offered uplighting services, but it was way out of our budget. There were places you could rent uplighting for less money, but it seemed like so much work to have to set them up, run extension cords to all of them, tape the cords down to the floor to prevent tripping, etc. That's when I did some Googling and found Superlative Events' wireless rental uplights. These things are SO COOL! Flip the switch on each light, choose the color on the color wheel remote, and you're good to go. It took literally 3 minutes to set them up in our venue, and the effect was really impressive. It really changes the look and feel of a room! The lights were so impressive, in fact, that our DJ (a guy with previous stage lighting experience) commented that their company really needed to offer something like that instead of the expensive ones they currently offered. The shipping process was very fast and easy. The case of lights arrived on my doortstep a few days before the wedding, and I simply put them back in the same shipping box after the wedding and dropped it off at FedEx with the prepaid label. Easy peasy! Big thanks to Brian King at Superlative for the great communications, and great value!
