Reviews from Our Clients at Fairmont Olympic Hotel

5 Star Review

Crimson Haze was one of the best purchases we made for our wedding! We had uplighting in the garden room at the Fairmont Olympic for our reception and it was absolutely perfect! During our dinner the lighting was muted and the perfect touch but during dancing when we turned the main lights down it really made the everything stand out. Clea is so kind and easy to work with. She would answer my questions immediately. I highly recommend them for your wedding!

We used Crimson Haze for our August wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle. They were reliable, easy to communicate with, and did a fantastic job! SOLID operation. Our photographers (who are very talented) couldn’t have done their job without the perfect lighting provided by Crimson Haze. I’m very thankful they were recommended to us!

First of all, Clea was so easy to work with and I thank her for making the process easy! She was quick to respond to emails and calls, and she was always willing to answer my questions. Lighting can be underestimated at a wedding, but boy oh boy. Crimson Haze delivered! And honestly, our wedding would have had a different vibe without them. Clea walked me through the whole process of choosing lighting, and if I had something else in mind she was open to hearing me out. The detailed lighting really made our wedding a spectacular event that everyone still keeps talking about! Thank you, Crimson Haze!

Chandelier Silhouettes

A spectacular special effect! Our finely tuned spotlights focus through the Fairmont’s gorgeous chandeliers to create a striking silhouette. This option is available in the Spanish Ballroom.

We posted a little more about this in our blog.

Upgrade your uplights to feature customized, dynamic changes — like a classic warm white look for your ceremony, a golden candlelight color during dinner and toasts, and vibrant colors and animations during dancing.

Illuminate centerpieces, buffet tables, florals, cakes, and more with warm targeted pin-spot lighting.

Event Inspiration

Wedding Inspiration: Bindu & Dan

Dan and Bindu’s celebration at Fairmont Olympic Hotel embraced rich jewel tones, with violet lighting complementing the glamorous crystal decor and lavish, white florals.

For the ceremony, we kept the lighting mostly warm white with a spotlight for their ceremony and warm white uplights along the sides of the room, paired with violet uplights on their backdrop drape for a pop of color. When guests returned to the ballroom for dinner, all the uplights were set to violet for a dramatic statement, paired with warm white pinspotting on the dinner tables.

We used moving head spotlights to light their first dances, toasts and cake cutting, and then these same fixtures were part of their dance party, changing color on the dance floor. For open dancing, we introduced vibrant colors and special effect fog blasters to punctuate key moments for a lively dance party.

Wedding Inspiration: Mara & Danny

Mara and Danny created a glamorous and epic wedding celebration with customized lighting elements to showcase the different parts of their day.

Guests were greeted in the Spanish Foyer for cocktail hour with warm, candlelight colored uplighting paired with large, custom gobo monograms. We used video projection to showcase their photo slideshow, and at a key moment, their engagement video.

The reception was hosted in the Spanish Ballroom, decorated with glittering, dramatic chandelier silhouettes and purple accents in their floral, linen and uplighting colors. Our adjustable moving spotlights were used for soft spotlighting for first dances, then dramatic, choreographed spotlighting for their special performances, and finally as dance party lighting once open dancing started.

Their after-party in the Garden Room featured dynamic uplighting, a custom dance lighting package, and haze for aerial beam effects to create more of a “nightclub style” ambiance as a grand finale.

Event Inspiration: Influencer Dinner

The Fairmont Olympic Hotel’s 4th Annual Wedding Influencer Dinner was themed “Low Tide”, inspired by the natural elements of the Pacific Northwest from the coast to the shore to the forest.

With each course, we transitioned the lighting and video projection footage to complementary colors and imagery: for example, for a fish course we featured footage of the ocean, paired with uplights in shades of blues, while for a truffle dish we transitioned to footage of mushrooms paired with warmer amber color tones.

The 7 course meal took guests on a journey, both in taste and sight!

Mara and Danny – Surprise Wedding Performances

So fun! Stunning bride Mara and dashing groom Danny each prepared an awesome choreographed dance performance for their wedding celebration! Here’s a short highlight reel.

We had so much fun preparing special lighting cues for this. Spotlights, big moving color washes, gobo special effects, and more.

Dynamic Wedding Lighting

A beautiful wedding and reception in the Fairmont’s Spanish Ballroom with our dynamic uplighting in action. The lighting changes in time to your music and stays in your color palette.

An elegant and sophisticated party lighting option for those who don’t want dots, beams, or gobos.

Wedding Influencer Dinner

For this year’s lavish Influencer Dinner at Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, we contributed dual UHD projection-mapped video, sequenced with custom content that appeared with each course as the food was presented. Dynamic wireless uplighting, carefully color-matched to the video, helped set the mood for each moment of the evening. Fun!
