Last month, Something New Entertainment headliner MCs Justin and  Anna-Jeannine “DJ AJ9” Herman appeared at the Cleveland Flea, Borrow Vintage  Eclectic Rentals, and With Love and Whimsy Event Design’s joint wedding styling-and-planning venture “Supa Fresh” at the Lake Erie Building’s Screw Factory Artist Lofts Event Space.

In addition to entertaining guests in the comfort of the Something New Entertainment lounge-booth (our sign is pictured, above), Justin and Anna-Jeannine spent several days leading up to the event planning the day’s all-vintage fashion shows alongside Jackie Ann as well as designing lightscapes to compliment each of several event designer’s very different styled decor visions.  Anna-Jeannine also MCed all three fashion shows, wearing vintage-styled attire from her own wardrobe.

Each of the three all-vintage fashion shows over the course of the day featured a completely different wardrobe of styles from Great Lakes Outfitters and Miranda’s Vintage Bridal with accessories by Weddings Bespoke.  Click to enlarge each of the photos, below, for a look at fashions from each show.

Something New Entertainment’s lighting design for Supa Fresh included theatrical stage lighting for the model’s runway — key lighting in a soft, face-flattering warm white with fill in a soft, cool blue for definition.  We also included uplighting in Supa Fresh’s signature fuchsia along the stage wall, draped with a metallic gold and silver tinsel curtain by with Love and Whimsy, adding an ambiance that the existing industrial fluorescent lighting lacked.

Several event designers showcased their unique style through themed event vignettes complimented by Something New Entertainment lighting design — including:

Bright modern geo was a veritable symphony of cheerful colors and daring textures.

 

The palette included blush, pinks, purples and greens juxtaposed with warm wood (Borrow Vintage + Eclectic Rental’s signature farm tables), evergreen with soft blooms (Twig’s lush, romantic florals), golden gilt on the individual menu boards,  brightly-painted wire lamps, and crowned by a luxurious custom-draped canopy of bistro-style globe lights by Something New Entertainment.

 

After the sun set, the effect was particularly stunning, the round globes of the cafe lights giving off a warm glow that really set the mood for the intimate design dinner held in the space, that evening, bringing out all the beautiful warm tones in the brass candlesticks, glided menu boards, golden flatware, and event the designs on the vintage glassware.

Opulent Masquerade combined bold, rich hues with luxe fabrics, modern lines, and avante-garde floral design.

 

 

The palette included royal purples, bright greens, and teals tempered with a hodge-podge of clean lines and luxe textures like the smooth leather lounge furniture, custom faux-hedge dividers, peacock feathers a-plenty, and iridescent satin, all complimented by Something New Entertainment’s punchy-purple uplighting.

Daylight.

Baci Designer’s vignette and tablescape by daylight.  Something New Entertainment’s lighting really sets the mood for an intimate dinner, later!

Modern Aztec Desert was an edgy play on bold, HOT colors and textures with a distinctively desert flair.

The palette included fluorescent yellow and fuchsia pink contrasted with succulents, cacti, and terra cotta.  From Baci Designer’s colorful paper work to Meringue’s pyramid of macarons, all accented by a lighting design by Something New Entertainment (including wash lighting with a soft amber key lighting and a strong fuchsia side fill to simulate the arid, desert air), the atmosphere of adventure was loud and clear!

Guests were treated to individual-serving-sized bottles of Tabasco sauce, as they marveled at Amanda Cursaro’s (Baci Designer) and Bailey Wilson’s (Molly Taylor Designs) attention to detail.

Like Bright Modern Geo, the lighting design was particularly stunning, after the sun set, the soft amber key lighting adding to the  warm glow that really set the mood for the intimate design dinner held in the space adjacent to the vignette.

The evening’s design dinner was hosted by Spice of Life Catering Co., who transformed an empty corner of the raw, open space into a fully-functioning, open kitchen to cook up a variety of delightful eats over the course of the day for brides and grooms attending the marketplace to sample.

Above their dinner table and throughout their 400 sqft open kitchen space, Something New Entertainment installed pendant lamps at irregular intervals and a variety of heights with exposed, vintage-styled Edison Bulbs.

Besides being a cute decor element with an industrial feel perfect for their temporary kitchen, the additional lighting provided ample light for a safe cooking environment, once the sun set, allowing us to kill the warehouse’s unpleasant existing fluorescent lighting in time for that intimate design dinner in favor of the pleasant, diffused warm lighting from the Edison bulbs.

For those of you who attended — thanks for visiting us!  For those of you who missed it — definitely plan to attend, next year!  It’s hard to believe this was a first-time event, it went SO WELL, and next year’s bound to be even better!
