About us image

FROST DC Event Lighting & Production is a team of highly skilled designers, craftsmen, engineers and illusionists adding ambience, soul and stunning effects to Washington, DC area special events. A longtime favorite of top event planners and sought-after venues, FROST DC combines impeccable service with expertise in event lighting, technical management, staging, red carpet & backdrops, audio, video, pipe & drape and other fabric techniques. Specialties include weddings, galas, mitzvahs, corporate events, parties and premieres.

Founded in 1994, FROST DC’s work consistently garners 5-star reviews, with features in Bride & Groom, Martha Stewart Weddings, Washington Post, Washingtonian, Capitol File and more. You’ll spy FROST DC trucks at the Library of Congress, The Willard Intercontinental, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Smithsonian Museums, embassies and National Archives. Our signature style has graced Inaugural Balls, movie premieres, Ambassador residences and Vanity Fair after-parties.

FROST DC has designed walls that erupt into flames, fashioned canopies to segue from sunset to starry night and transformed back yards into zen retreats. But some of our fondest memories are the simple touches: white paper lanterns lighting fishbowls with single orchids, the lingering kiss of a bride and groom under a sparkling chandelier, rustic lamps swaying lazily in a cozy garden. No matter the event, our approach is the same: relentless pursuit of client delight.
