Excellent service! Brian from Superlative was very responsive right off the bat. I received the lights and chargers (per request) because I was planning on using the lights 2 nights in a row. The remote that controls the lights is very cool too - touch sensitive and very easy to operate. I'm glad I didn't pay a vendor to put these in place and decided to DIY them with Superlative Events, because I never even turned them on during my second event. Very reasonably priced and easily operable! Wonderful experience overall!

I ordered a gobo light kit and cake spotlights from Superlative Events for my wedding and am so very happy with them! I sent in a custom monogram for my wedding and the monogram looked amazing with the gobo projector! The cake spotlights really make a difference for my wedding cake as well. I would definitely recommend them as they offer more services as well!

Superlative Events provided fantastic music (thank you Jeff!), gorgeous uplighting, and a Photo Booth that left us with timeless memories! I am beyond happy and extremely satisfied with their work and have gotten many compliments from every area that they covered. The DJ played the perfect mix of music that catered to every age group, the uplighting was the exact finishing touch that made our reception room pop, and the photo booth brought out the silliness in everyone which was exactly what we were hoping for. Brian and his staff were extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Superlative Events, I promise it will be worth every penny!

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.
