Pirates Cove on Treasure Island in lovely San Luis Obispo

lighting embassy suites san luis obispo central coast wedding receptionIn a fit of swashbuckling awesomeness, Mark Padgett Event Design once again wowed the crowd with a superb evening of fundraising for the Hospice Partners of the Central Coast. Sponsors and guests of this fantastic  non-profit organization were treated to a marvelous setting inside the giant ballroom at the Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo. No detail was spared. We lit the walls a deep shade of blue, filled the “sky” with stars, painted a dancefloor in soft light and let the live-action pirate brigade (The RumRunners) steal everyones attention and leave only smiles behind. The appropriately rustic centerpieces adorned with gorgeous tropical flowers by panacea event floral design really brought life to the table settings. Sophie at Mike Larson Photography caught all the splendor in some amazing shots. She really knows how to capture the ambience, even in the lowest of light. Also, a Thank You to Bill at BGA for the usage of the moon image.lighting embassy suites san luis obispo central coast wedding receptionlighting embassy suites san luis obispo central coast wedding receptionlighting embassy suites san luis obispo central coast wedding receptionlighting embassy suites san luis obispo central coast wedding reception

Most all of which can be dialed on-the-fly to any color desired. Good thing the phenomenal team fromMike Larson Photography was there to document everyones decorative efforts.

All the while it’s got all the amenities you could ask for like a totally self contained kitchen, connected bathrooms and tons of parking (just to name a few). Many thanks to Sophie from Mike Larson Photography for coming out and snapping some amazing photos of the event.

Decor Event Lighting for Robert Hall’s New Years Eve Party

@Kramerdjs.com Decor Lighting Robert Hall CavesOur Team at Kramer Entertainment DJ & Lighting was excited to have been asked to provide the decor lighting for Robert Hall’s Annual New Years Eve Bash.  This year we wanted to do something different, so we asked them to turn off ALL of there house lights in the Caves and our lighting designer, Zach, did the rest.  We decided to go with the “Eating under the stars” feel, so you’ll notice our new floating nebula and green stars effect on the ceiling.  Each table is lit by LED pinspot lighting with the uplighting in the background for contrast and accents.  Panacea helped with fabulous lampshades and floral decor.  Catering Unlimited served an incredible 4 course Moroccan Cuisine paired with Robert Hall Wine.. Delicious.  And their service was EXCEPTIONAL!  Thanks to Mike Larson for taking such great pictures for us.

Happy New Year!

Audrey & Travis’s Wedding Silverhorse Winery, San Miguel

Silverhorse wedding reception lighting central coast winery

Thank you Audrey and Travis for having us as your DJs and Lighting Designers at your Wedding at the beautiful Silverhorse Winery in San Miguel.  It was nice to work alongside one of the best floral designers in our County, Corinne Smith from Panacea Event Floral Designs.  Working alongside Corrine, our lighting designer was able to bring out the key features of the silverhorse winerey’s structure.  Except the 4 sconces on the outside wall, all of the house lights are off using only Kramer Entertainment Decor Lighting.  Although it can change to any color, our brides two choices were candle light and a fucia / purple combo.  We slowly faded between colors at key moments to accent some of the special dances.  Audrey and Travis, thanks for having us and congratulations!
