Say “I Do” on Friday or Sunday

Why have a Friday or Sunday Wedding?

It’s no secret that the go-to day to plan a wedding is Saturday, but we have found that there are some enticing reasons to jump out of the box and schedule your Wedding on a Friday or Sunday instead. 

The first reason is a no-brainer; cost efficiency! Venues typically book their Saturdays for the year well in advance, so they often provide a discount to couples who choose to have their Wedding on an off day instead. This is great because you get the same services you would normally get, but now you can apply those extra savings to another important aspect of your big day. 

If cost saving appeals to you, or your dream venue is booked every Saturday for years out, then read on. A Friday or Sunday wedding can make for a unique wedding experience, but how do you know which one of these days is right for you? Kramer Events Wedding Coordinators took their experience planning Central Coast Weddings and helped us explore this question a bit. Let’s begin with a Friday Wedding. 

“I like the idea of a Friday wedding because it extends the weekend! You can host a bunch of different activities and get togethers with your special people and keep the party going- not just one day only!” – Bri Cormier 

This is a great option for couples whose guests don’t have to travel far to attend the wedding. The Wedding ceremony can be held on a Friday in the late afternoon/evening so that guests don’t have to take a full day off of work if they don’t want to and can thoroughly enjoy the party afterwards and still have the whole weekend to relax with their family, friends, and the newlyweds. This option may be best if you know you and your guests plan to party-hardy and won’t want the fun to stop after the wedding comes to an end. 

If going hard the night of the wedding is less of a priority for you and your loved ones, and your more interested in something intimate and relaxed, a Sunday Wedding may be your best option. You can plan something unique, like a morning wedding with brunch and mimosa’s to follow and an early end time for the reception so your guests don’t feel exhausted as they begin their work week on Monday.

Sunday is also a great option when it comes to destination weddings, as guests will be able to leave Friday evening, and have plenty of time to rest after their travels before enjoying your wedding on Sunday. 

Ultimately, when making the decision about your wedding date it is important to go with the day that feels right for you and your partner. Your guests love you and will do what it takes to make whatever date you choose work for their schedules. Most people will choose to take a day off. Whether it be the Friday before your Wedding or the Monday after, they will plan accordingly so they can celebrate this big day with you.

Real Wedding | Megan and Ross | Black Lake Golf Resort

On March 31st, 2018, Ross and Megan McCracken tied the knot at the beautiful Central Coast Wedding Venue, Black Lake Golf Resort. The Kramer Events team had a blast being a part of this one of a kind wedding which brought together families from two different parts of the world. Ross’ Scottish heritage was a huge part of the couples big day, and we must say that Kilts have become one of our new favorites when it comes to wedding attire. 

Their ceremony was held in front of a small cluster of trees above the expansive greens of the Black Lake Golf Course and couldn’t have been more beautiful. Following the ceremony, the Kramer Events Photo and Video team took the couple through the golf course to a secluded pond location for their couple photos and then headed back towards the patio area where everyone enjoyed a fun-filled reception. 

Kramer Events DJs Lou Mars and Paul Escalera kept the party jumpin’, especially when they initiated the traditional Scottish dance that took place, bringing guests from both Scottish and American origin together on the dance floor. Our brand new photobooth, designed and crafted by our very own Kris Teunissen, also made its first debut at the wedding and was a total hit. 

With a hashtag of #ReleaseTheMcCracken we knew this wedding was bound to be a hit and it certainly was a day to remember! 

Congratulations Megan and Ross!

Real Wedding: Bryan and Shaun – Madonna Inn

Bryan and Shaun’s Wedding – Madonna Inn

You know those people you meet whose bright personalities are completely infectious; those people who are confident in who they are and send out a permission slip for everyone around them to feel comfortable and confident in there own skin as well? Ya, those people are the best, and a special kind of magic is created when two people of this nature come together as one. Such is the case with Bryan and Shaun, a vivacious couple who gave Kramer Events the absolute pleasure of providing Coordination, DJ, Lighting, Photography, and Photo Booth services at our first, but certainly not last, LGBTQ wedding on the Central Coast!

The whole Kramer team came together on October 21st, 2017 to bring to life Bryan and Shaun’s vision for their Central Coast Wedding. Taking place at one of the gorgeous San Luis Obispo Wedding Venues, Madonna Inn, the West/Pallardy wedding was a vision of creativity, class, and fun! Handmade items by the couple mixed in with the one of a kind decor at Madonna Inn, and Kramer Events transformative lighting designs made the ceremony, dining room, and reception come together beautifully, after some team collaboration of course. And the photographs? Well, they speak for themselves!

One of the most inspirational things we witnessed at this particular wedding was the clear and undeniable love that was shared between the couple and their family and friends. Everyone was happy and thoroughly excited for Bryan and Shaun.

The Central Coast Wedding Photographers at Kramer Events are passionate about capturing the special bond between couples. Their technical proficiency and attention to detail makes for some stunning images and of course Madonna Inn provided a diverse range of backdrops to choose from, each adding a unique flair to the photographs captured.

Out of the many unique rooms in Madonna Inn, the couple chose the elegant ballroom to say their vows. It was a beautiful ceremony and the genuine happiness seen on Bryan and Shaun’s faces is priceless.

After the couple said their “I-dos” everyone moved into the wonderfully decorated garden room to enjoy drinks and a delicious meal catered by the Madonna Inn kitchen staff.

Bri Cormier, a renowned Central Coast Wedding Coordinator at Kramer Events used her eye for detail to assist our talented light tech Paul in finding the perfect uplighting color scheme which accentuated the dining room’s diverse wallpapers and textures excellently. This is just one example of how the multifaceted expertise the Kramer Events team brings to the table can “turn a crazy room into a dream room for a wedding”, as our lovely couple worded it.

We loved the couples cake choice, and that topper…YASSS! The Kramer lighting team really accentuated the details of the cake.

The couple had their first dance under glowing chandeliers enveloped with bright colored lights, which perfectly matched the joyful energy in the room.

Next, Shaun and Bryan shared dances with the most important women in their lives, their mothers, and grandmothers. It is so beautiful to see a glimpse of the bond shared between them in these images.

Formal photos are a must, but whats better than getting silly with your friends and family in front of the camera? The Kramer Classic PhotoBooth was loved by everyone, and the handmade backdrop provided by the couple added the perfect touch of personalization. Bryan and Shaun will be laughing for many years to come at their hilarious photo book keepsake with memories of all their guests having fun on their wedding night.

Yasss….cake!

A reception is meant to be a grand celebration to honor the remarkable journey the couple is about to embark on together, and the Central Coast Wedding Dj’s at Kramer Events know how to create a killer finale. Bryan and Shaun described Janine’s  “positive energy and MAD ability to read a room” as having created one of the “best dance parties we have ever witnessed!”. Our own team agreed it was one of the most fun weddings of the year.

We wish Bryan and Shaun all the best in their lifelong journey together. May you two have many amazing adventures side by side!

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

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.

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.
