Real Wedding: Chelsea & Stefan • See Canyon Fruit Ranch

Chelsea & Stefan’s Wedding • See Canyon Fruit Ranch

There is something magical about bringing to life a couple’s unique vision for their wedding day successfully. It does not come easily, as the day can always take unexpected turns, but when a team has the ability to work together on all aspects of the event, the potential for the day to come together and exceed the couple’s original expectations rises drastically.

On October 7th, 2017, Stefan and Chelsea brought their wedding vision to life with the help of an integrated Kramer Events team at the lush Central Coast Wedding venue See Canyon Fruit Ranch. In the midst of ancient Oak trees, vibrant gardens, and overflowing fruit orchards, you might expect that a dream wedding would come together naturally, however, there is a world of team planning behind the scenes that is the backbone of a beautifully crafted event such as the Hardy Wedding.

As all wedding professionals know, there are bound to be a handful of obstacles that arise; like when the handmade Cake Pops began melting in the sun and our coordinators rushed them into the shade. Or when the dreaded scenario of running out of beer arose, and our lead coordinator went out to buy more while her assistant and the rest of the team worked together to rearrange the agenda and ensure no stress was put onto the couple or their guests. The beer was delivered right on time and the party was a blast! It is these little issues that can make or break an event depending on how they are handled, and when you go with Kramer Events you get the comfort in knowing that things will be handled efficiently.

Stefan and Chelsea’s love was so strong that after only one year of knowing one another, they took a leap of faith and moved across country together, but when it came to the planning of their wedding day, they went the route of certainty by entrusting our team with the month-of-coordination, DJ, Photography, and Photo Booth services. Our desire to make our clients happy and raise the public’s expectations of event professionals allowed us to create a vision of excellence for the Hardy’s and the guests that came to witness the exchange of their love that day.

Real Wedding: Nick & Caitlin • Avila Beach Golf Resort

Nick & Caitlin’s Wedding • Avila Beach Golf Resort

Oftentimes the best things in life are thrown at us unexpectedly. This was certainly the case when it came to the union of Caitlin and Nick. They first crossed paths in New York city, a place which had drawn them both away from their faraway hometowns. Upon meeting, they instantly felt that magical spark which lives in the presence of new love, but they never imagined how much their lives would intertwine or how they would grow to need one another. Not long after they met and fell in love, the universe let them know just how serious this was as Caitlin became pregnant – with twins! The couple embraced their surprising fate and brought forth the beautiful new life that became Jack and Fay and their lives have been unfolding together ever since.

Though Nick and Caitlin had already experienced the grandest of adventures side by side, they decided to solidify their love by entering into the sacred bond of marriage on September 23, 2017 at the beautiful Central Coast wedding venue, Avila Beach Golf Resort – a place that has held special meaning to Caitlin and her family for many years. So, with the sun shining overhead, and a light ocean breeze all around, this special couple said their I do’s surrounded by the ones they hold dear who had travelled from all sides of the country to pay witness to their love.

This wedding was yet another grand display of what the entire Kramer team can do when brought together to execute a couple’s vision for their big day. Caitlin and Nick utilized Kramer Events month-of-coordination service, ensuring that the day played out how they envisioned; Our Dj wedding package, which provided just the right vibes before and during their ceremony and kept the dance floor jumpin’ throughout the reception; and the full Kramer Events Wedding Photography package, ensuring that all their big moments were beautifully captured for them to cherish for a lifetime. All and all, the Johnson’s wedding was a lovely seaside experience that they and their guests will never forget!”

Team Member of the Month: Justin Jacobs, November 2017

Meet Justin

An amazing photographer but more importantly one of the most amazing people I’ve ever me in my life..

Anyone who’s met Justin for more than 30 seconds knows  what an incredible person and leader he is.  His infectiously positive outlook and genuine love for people makes him a person you just want to be around.

Spend more than 30 mins with him, and you will literally have a different week and a refreshed outlook on life. Call him friend, and you will walk a different life. Yes, he’s that awesome!

We are incredibly lucky to have a man of his character and talent on our team.  When he came to me as a seasoned successful photographer 3 years ago and wanted to start our photography division it was a no brainier.

Since then, he has done amazing work and produced incredible photos for our couples and clients.  He has inspired & navigated our photography team toward excellence.  And he has worked with our DJ, coordination, lighting, and video teams to integrate our services together so that all of our team works together with precision and unity of purpose.

But more than that he’s left an impact on everyone he touches.

Melissa and I are grateful to have him lead our photography team and be a cherished friend.

Real Wedding: Ryan and Lisa • Bianchi Winery

Ryan & Lisa’s Wedding • Bianchi Winery

You’ve heard the expression “opposites attract” before right? Well that couldn’t be more true when it comes to these two. Coming from different worlds, yet both possessing hearts of gold, contagious energy, and smiles that can light up a room. They are a match made in heaven, an observation that anyone present on their wedding day would surely make. The vivacious couple decided to bring their spunk to the central coast winery scene, and tied the knot at Bianchi Winery in Paso Robles.

The Seller’s wedding was full of bright colors, elegance, and touch of sparkle! Lisa’s bridal party was dolled up in a sultry coral, and outfitted with bouquets of pink and white roses; while Ryan and his mates dressed their suits up with teal ties and kept with the spirit of fun in their bright teal sunglasses. We were impressed with the couple’s ability to keep their guests physically engaged in today’s climate of iphones in front of faces by opting for an unplugged wedding – inviting their guests to be fully present during their one of kind ceremony. And it truly was a unique experience – I mean, when’s the last time you went to a wedding and witnessed the new bride and groom pull out their flasks, take a swig and proceed to walk down the aisle as husband and wife? #NationOfLyan was in full effect – from icing the bridal parties to starting one of the most epic conga lines known to man, the good times kept rolling until the end of the night. The couple ended their wedding evening with a hilarious couple photo in front of the Mirror Photo booth in which the groom asked his new wife, “Is it okay that i’m now shirtless under my vest?” to which she replied, “Of course it is!”.

In addition to utilizing the Kramer Photo booth service, Ryan and Lisa decided to bundle and enjoyed the peace of mind that comes with a solid execution of DJ, photography, videography, lighting, and month-of wedding coordination by the Kramer Events team. Ironically enough, Ryan used to work for Kramer back in the day as a DJ so it was only fitting that at one point he stepped up to rock the DJ board and kept the party bumpin’. The best aspect of going with an all inclusive Kramer Events service is witnessing a team of individuals working together seamlessly to produce an event that is top notch in every way.

Hey, we’re just out here trying to raise the public’s expectation of event professionals, and Ryan and Lisa’s spectacular vision for their wedding day matched perfectly with the Kramer Events company mission.

The beautiful bride and groom said their I Do’s at this intimate central coast wedding venue located in Cambria, California – a quaint beach town tucked away north of San Luis Obispo. Our photographer was able to effortlessly capture the undeniable connection between these two. By nightfall, the dance floor was packed, sparklers lit the sky and the newlyweds were off as husband and wife.

The central coast was named one of the happiest places on earth for a reason – the coastal beaches, lush landscapes and simply put, the way it makes you feel. Capture all of these moments with none other than a San Luis Obispo based photographer. They’re going to know all of the good spots anyways.

Engagement Shoot: Chelsea and Stefan’s Story

Chelsea and Stefan chose the beautiful Avila Beach as the set for their engagement shoot with our very own Central Coast wedding photographer, Justin Jacobs. Fast forward to October 2017, the month of their wedding, and you’ll find Chelsea walking down the aisle at See Canyon Fruit Ranch  – one of the most romantic Central Coast wedding venues in the San Luis Obispo area.

How did you two meet?

We met in San Luis Obispo, California March 2014, at a mutual friend’s house. We dated for a year and moved to South Carolina and lived there for two years before moving back to the central coast.

What is the most memorable date you guys have been on since being together?

Chelsea: Our most memorable date we have had together has got to be our first date when we went to Eureka Burger. We didn’t know a thing about each other and it was a lot of fun laughing and talking so effortlessly.

Stefan: Our first date was our most memorable date when we ate at Eureka Burger.

 

How did you know Chelsea/Stefan was “The One?”

Chelsea: I knew Stefan was the one when we went to Six Flags together after a few months of dating and rode every single rollercoaster twice, until we got sick. We were driving back from LA (3 hour drive) and I realized this guy was the most genuine person I’d ever met.

Stefan: I knew she was the one when we I could look her in the eyes and not shy away. She not only accepted my quirky personality traits but started to embrace them.

Any piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?

Always talk. Keep communication alive and well. Never go to bed angry and always try for a better life! That’s what it’s all about.

Whether your photoshoot takes you to a rustic vineyard in Paso Robles or shoots you out to a remote nook in Edna Valley – ask any Central Coast wedding photographer and they will tell you the possibilities are endless. The Central Coast wedding venues that scatter the area are some of the most breathtaking venues you will find in California. I think it’s safe to say that your photos will be leaving you with more than just 1,000 words!

Team Member of the Month: Julian Maze, August 2017

Meet Julian

Or as we know him here “The Boy Wonder.”  Julian is one of the hardest working team members we’ve ever had.  Which is why we’ve chosen him for our inaugural team member of the month recognition at Kramer Events.

At only 17 years old when he joined us over a year ago, he took on a lead role showing the maturity and leadership decades beyond his age.  Julian does the right thing every time, even when no ones watching.  He’s a true leader in the making and has been a fantastic team member at Kramer Events.

You may have seen him at events leading complicated lighting setups, running a photo booth, running our audio systems, or just plain hustling.  It’s seldom when we find someone at such a young age to take on so much with us.

It’s with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to him as he begins his college career at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego later this month.  We are excited for him, but will miss him and the attitude he brought.  You are an exceptional member to our Kramer Team Julian, good luck on your next adventure!

-Beau Kramer, Team Leader

Real Wedding Brock & Jenelle • Terra Mia Vineyard

Brock & Jenelle’s Wedding | Terra Mia Vineyard

What happens when a handsome Firefighter meets a gorgeous, independent and entrepreneurial woman? A dynamic duo! Brock and Jenelle celebrated their love in front of family and close friends on May 6, 2017, at the always stunning Terra Mia Vineyard on the westside of the Paso Robles Wine Region.

Brock and Jenelle met and fell in love almost immediately. Both are very strong people, who shared a close bond with their families, and together are incredibly charitable to their community. The couple’s qualities were evident in their day as their guests were brought to happy tears as they watched their engagement video during the reception. While proposing, Brock had surprised Jenelle by hiding a tiny camera in the ring box, and caught her expression and her “YES” all on film. The Bride’s Father, who works in the Entertainment industry, then surprised the couple with his own video- a message of congratulations by “The Princess Bride” star, Cary Elwes, who wished the couple a “Happy Mawidge”.

Guests celebrated the couple and feasted on a delicious menu by Phil’s Catering (including an amazing Mac & Cheese!). Then, enjoyed a wedding cake crafted by the bride’s friend for her day.

Kramer Events Photographer, Patrick Ibarra, photographed the “joyous and loving” couple who could not wait to get back to the party and celebrate with their loved ones! Our DJ team shared that the event was one of their “Top 10” favorite weddings, as they ate, drank, and danced into the night at the gorgeous Terra Mia Vineyard!

Congratulations to Brock and Jenelle, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day!
