Mission: Elegant Evening
Grandover Resort, Greensboro, NC - CareySound may have had its beginning as an audio company but our roots go much deeper harnessing the technological magic of event theatrics — fleshing out the dreams of our customers and fulfilling fantasies. When event specialist Veronica Foster approached us a several months ago with a request to create a lavish ballroom experience featuring a very large nine foot by twenty-four foot dazzling crystal centerpiece that hung 6 foot tall over a huge white dance floor we jumped at the chance.
Special challenges presented themselves to our CareySound team from the very beginning of the project. The event was to take place in the large Grandview Ballroom located in the heart of the luxurious Grandover Resort Complex located in central North Carolina. The hotels strict policies on hanging anything, much less a huge centerpiece, was particularly challenging. Couple this to the very high profile of the invited guests that was to include local dignitaries, out of town professionals and the governor of the state, it required a lot of creative engineering and consultation with hotel staff. There was no room for error in its implementation. We basically had to provide a safe support structure for the hanging crystals where there was none in the ballroom ceiling. Sophistication & Style - CareySound adds a dramatic crystal & light centerpiece and a changing color palate to this elegant evening. (Click to Enlarge)
The client, their over four hundred invited guests and the hotel management all agreed that the CareySounds solution was spectacular. From Cool Blue to Red Hot at a flick of the switch.
Thirty–four interconnected LED light fixtures surrounding the ballroom provided a dynamic saturation of color that changed the mood in the room throughout the night without elevating the temperature in the hall. They utilized existing power outlets throughout the room without the need for additional power distribution.Guests dance the night away on the huge white dance floor under sparkling crystals.
