Cameron’s Carnevale at the Rittenhouse Hotel was a joyous and energetic coming-of-age celebration, honoring the special guest after his beautiful bar mitzvah ceremony. Cameron wanted a carnival themed extravaganza, and planner/designer Kim Rosen of Kim Rosen Events knew exactly how to make his vision come to life. Working with the team at Penncora Productions for the floral arrangements and décor, the complete carnival experience was brought to the swanky historic Philadelphia hotel, rendering the ballroom nearly unrecognizable.
We were tasked with bringing the event to electrifying levels using creative lighting, video screens, and special effects. To complement the existing décor and design, we adorned the perimeter of the ballroom and adjacent cocktail space with gold and blue LED uplighting and incorporated our Martin Mac Auras and our new Elation Artiste DaVinci intelligent profile fixtures, adding dynamic visuals with specially written cues, controlling each individual fixture to change color, direction, beam size, and effects based upon the formalities that were scheduled throughout the evening. To create Cameron’s unforgettable entrance into the ballroom, we fired our Sparktacular Effect -flameless sparklers that are safe to use both indoors and outdoors- which we also placed around the stage to create additional excitement around the focal point of the ballroom: the LED video wall. This display was custom-created from our modular 2×2′ panels, fitting perfectly in the boxed out section in the front of the ballroom. To complete the design, we illuminated each floral centerpiece and small detail with our magnetic LED pin spot fixtures, and we washed the custom banners with lekos placed strategically around the space. This event was truly magical, and the experience was brought to life by the amazing vendors who helped Cameron enjoy his special day.
