Brock & Jenelle | Terra Mia

May 6, 2017

 

What happens when a handsome Firefighter meets a gorgeous, independant and entreprenuerial 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 amzing 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 thier 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!

Katelyn & Bruce | Bianchi Winery

 

 

The clouds parted and the sun shined for Katelyn and Bruce’s wedding at Bianchi Winery in Paso Robles.  With a light-hearted color scheme of red, pink, and burgundy, the couple’s child-at-heart nature came through in every aspect of the day (they met in a toy store!). With a nod to vintage glamour, Katelyn chose satin flats from Etsy, and assisted her friend Lauren, owner of Etsy shop, Zella and Kay in creating a gorgeous felt toss bouquet. Making sure little touches that reflected their personality and personal style was marquee for the couple.

With its variance in location of ceremony and reception sites at Bianchi Winery, it is one of our favorite Central Coast Wedding Venues to shoot! We love how the winery’s lush vineyards meet the pond just off the tasting room, creating a variety of back drops and locations. The couple chose the hilltop area just off the winery’s production room to say their vows, and guests were treated stunning vineyard views and peeks of the sunset!

Having met when Bruce wandered into the toy store where Katelyn worked, the couple bonded early on their shared love of all things young-at-heart and Legos. Katelyn says that she knew immediately that Bruce was someone special, and thought about him non-stop after their first meeting. He found his way back to that toy store a few months later- and they have been inseperable since! They recently made the move from Katelyn’s hometown, San Luis Obispo, California, to College Station, Texas, where Bruce has a position at his Alma Mater, Texas A&M University.

With their shared love of the Paso Robles Wine Region, it was a natural choice for them to return to the Central Coast for their wedding. Friends and family from all over the country joined them for what became a weekend event of dinners, and (of course) wine tasting. Both fell in love with the pond at Bianchi Winery, and decided it was their dream venue.

Guests were escorted to the tasting room, where they were treated to hand passed appetizers by Chipwrecked Catering; bruschetta, mac and cheese stuffed sweet peppers, and fresh fruit- and sipped on a selection of wines by Bianchi Winery. Dinner was located on the patio overlooking the pond, and was a delicious buffet of prime rib, butternut squash lasagna, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole- a few of the couple’s favorite dishes. Dessert was strawberry shortcake, also by Chipwrecked, and red velvet cake by Lickity Split, now known as Pardon my French Bakery.

As the sun set over Bianchi, guests danced to jazz standards and were entertained by the bride’s friends- all accomplished swing dancers. It was a swinging evening to remember in Paso Robles!

Take a peek at this year’s highlights!

The evening began with a bubbles and cheese party in the stunning stables at Greengate Ranch. Once a horse barn; the stables have been renovated and are ready for intimate dinners, cocktail receptions, and ceremonies. Guests were treated to welcome glasses of Sparkling Wine by neighbor, Biddle Ranch Vineyard. The bottles housed in a rustic barrel wine chiller by All About Events, and surrounded by floral ice cubes by Noonan’s Wine Country Designs. Guests milled about concept tables designed by Brooke Johnson of All About Events; listened to the sounds of Kramer Events’s live musician, Matt Cross; and were treated to a delicious (and beautiful!) charcuterie board by Ribline Catering, under chandeliers by Kramer Events. The board featured selections by Fromagerie Sophie, Catteneo Bros., and local fruits.

Guests then meandered down to the Vintage Barn and Courtyard for an evening of networking, eating, drinking, and dancing! The team at All About Events showcased their new clear top jumbo track tent, draped elegantly by Flowers by Kim, and furnished beautifully by Greer Woodruff of Scout Rental Co.. Luxe Linen’s 2016 and 2017 linen line were showcased as well, brilliantly by Brooke Johnson of All About Events, and highlighted the rental companies gorgeous offerings- including their new rose gold line and floral centerpieces by Noonan’s Wine Country Designs!

Sidecar Cocktail Co. displayed their Tinkertin Trailer Mobile Bar and shook up cocktails for the crowd, showcasing their popular drinks, ‘The Cure” and “My Hips don’t Lie”. Guests were treated to a fantastic display of food by Ribline Catering with stations providing hand carved sliders, salads, a Mac & Cheese Bar (a hit!), hand passed black truffle oysters, and their popular beach balls appetizer. For those with a sweet tooth, Ribline Catering displayed their baking prowess and introduced their new dessert offerings and cakes for 2017 weddings and events!

Guests partied and networked into the night with Kramer Events’s Silent Disco Party featuring Dueling DJ’s Conor and Lou, who put on quite a show! (Costume changes, drums kits and all!) Kramer Events also debuted their new massive Disco Ball, interactive green screen photo booth and light wall, which made quite the dramatic entrance and exit- and is available now for this season’s events.

There is something about a vineyard wedding that absolutely inspires us! For those of us on the Central Coast, it’s a location that is part of our daily life and drive, but rarely do we get to really play with the elements at hand. We absolutely jumped at the chance to create a style shoot with the incredibly talented Korinna Peterson of Le Festin Events at the gorgeous and up-and-coming Terra Mia Vineyard on the west side of the Paso Robles Wine Country. Thank you to Korinna’s style, and some amazing partners we created a day to pin and be inspired by!

 

Nestled onto 30 acres of rolling hills in Paso Robles, Terra Mia Vineyards offers a charming secluded setting that promises to create the most memorable visit or event. This private estate offers everything you could ever want in a Central Coast wedding venue, or a wine country vacation. This unique property has it all… It features rolling vineyards outlined with olive orchards and highlighted with majestic Oak trees, and a gorgeous path lined lake centered within the venue- creating a canvas for beautiful lighting design and stunning photos.

We love the touches of gold throughout this shoot- from the round back dining chairs, to the cake, and beading elements around the charger. This simple metal is perfectly paired with pinks and greens that are so fresh for spring!

Featured Venue: Cambria Pines Lodge

North Coast charm with a touch of European oppulance

Photography by Kramer Events

Set among 25 acres of lush gardens, and a Monterey pine forest, this gorgeous hilltop lodge boasts a history of European nobility and adventure. Built in the early 1920’s by a European baroness seeking adventure and fun on the rugged California coastline, built the lodge as her personal resort within visiting distance of Hearst Castle. But alas her Husband, the baron, called her back to Europe- leaving the lodge to a development company, and dashing her hopes of parties with the Hearst Family.

 

The lodge today resembles a gorgeous, modern-day cabin with a ballroom, upgraded rooms and suites, and a fire side lounge- perfect for post-event nightcaps. The grounds of Cambria Pines Lodge pay tribute to the baroness with an English garden, and rows of sculpted hedges along the garden paths. Couples love the beautiful gazebo for their ceremony, and often host cocktail parties on the adjacent patio prior to begin their receptions.

 

The Peacock Room, beautifully comes alive for indoor receptions! Trimmed in pine, the room boasts high ceilings, a moveable dance floor, and a granite-topped built in pine bar. We love working with couples to take advantage of this space with lighting and draping.

 

While this Central Coast wedding venue is bursting with picturesque locations on site for photos and gatherings, the lodge is located just minutes from the iconic Moonstone Beach- perfect for wedding party photos, or capturing the sunset.

Cambria Pines Lodge can accommodate up to 300 guests; and is perfect for weddings, gatherings, and  corporate events.

Featured Venue: Santa Margarita Ranch

Rustic sophistication in the heart of Wine Country

Photography by Kramer Events

Nestled in the little town of Santa Margarita, sits one of the longest continually operating cattle ranches in California- and our featured venue this week, Santa Margarita Ranch. The ranch has become a favorite venue among couples seeking a rustic yet sophisticated style for their wedding. The 15,000 acre property located just 15 minutes from San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles; features open space, vineyards, garden spaces, a barn, and an original Disneyland steam train!

The Santa Margarita Ranch is a special venue for our coordinators, Bri and Melissa, which is why we chose this very special place as our Featured Venue of the Week! Both coordinators rave about the incredibly accommodating and helpful venue staff, versatility of the space for events from rehearsal dinners to very large weddings and corporate events, and the uniqueness of the ranch’s steam train- a huge hit for wedding photos, and entertaining guests.

Bri’s favorite part of the venue is the iconic barn and the way the sun shines through the expansive doors at the golden hour, providing a natural backdrop for amazing photos. Melissa loves the plethora of photo back drops provided by the venue- there is no shortage of photo inspiration at the ranch! Both caution cake placement in the barn, as there is a resident barn owl that adds to the charm of the historic space!

Santa Margarita Ranch can accommodate up to 1000 guests; and is perfect for weddings, events, corporate parties, and rehearsal dinners.

Central Coast Venue Guide: What to know, what to ask

Central Coast Venue Guide

What to know, what to ask

 

One of the first and most important steps in planning any event is the selection of your venue! There are so many unique venues to choose from on the Central Coast, it’s important to take your time and ask lots of questions. Your venue is one of the most important aspects of your wedding day; it helps set the scene of your day as well as determine the flow of your event. We suggest to start your search using our Central Coast Wedding Venue Guide to get your ideas flowing, and make initial contact with the venues that catch your eye. With so many things to consider (and some you may not have thought of); we put together a list of points to ponder, and questions to ask when deciding on a venue.

Location

Is the venue close to accommodations for your family and friends? If you have a large number of guests travelling in, you’ll want to make sure there are adequate options nearby, or, plenty of transportation options such as Uber or possibly reserving a shuttle service such as SLO Safe Ride for your event and the safety of your guests.

Style

From Paso Robles to Santa Barbara, the Central Coast is wide open and varied in terrain from mountains to vineyards, cool downtown districts, and coastal areas- which makes it perfect to satisfy any wedding style or theme!

Does the venue match the style and feel you are hoping for? Wedding venues such as Greengate Ranch and Vineyard offers rustic charm with a vintage twist, while Whispering Rose Ranch in Solvang provides breathtaking views of the Santa Ynez Valley from a gorgeous working horse ranch with an air of Santa Barbara sophistication. If you are dreaming of a coastal wedding; venues such as Point 16 in Big Sur offer wide open views of the California coast line, while Avila Beach Golf Resort offers a beach front location with stunning sunsets. And of course, we have no shortage of vineyard and winery locations up and down the Central Coast!

Venue

When you’ve narrowed down your list of venues, there are a few questions to keep in mind that may save you money and hassle come event day:

How far in advance can you reserve the venue, and, does the venue offer an off-season discount? The wedding season on the Central Coast is typically late April through early November, when the weather here is best. Many venues and vendors (like Kramer Events) offer off-season discounts on venues and services if you book during November through early April.

What is included in the rental fee? Some venues offer tables, chairs, and other wedding related items and fold it into the cost of the rental; however, not all do. Make sure to get the list of what’s included to make the most of your budget and vendor needs.

Can you choose your own vendors? Another very important question! Most venues will allow outside catering, and liquor; however, there are several on the Central Coast that utilize their own in-house catering or liquor license. Often, you can still bring in outside wine, beer, or liquor, but there may be a corkage fee. Be sure to outline this clearly ahead of time with the venue’s Event Manager.

-Finally, time of year is also very important when determining a venue. While the temperature throughout much of the coastline and inland valleys of the Central Coast stay sunny and temperate throughout much of the year; our summertime and early fall temperatures in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Ynez can climb into the 90’s and higher. Does the venue have an indoor option for coverage, or, enough room for tenting should the weather call for it?

As you begin your search for the perfect Central Coast wedding venue, keep these points in mind and look for venues that will bring the vision of your perfect day to life!
