Lighting River Oaks Pavilion, Paso Robles

Paso Robles Wedding Venue decor LightingThanks to Claire at River Oaks Pavilion, the Broad Street Event Group got to put our talents to good use setting their beautiful event center ablaze with gorgeous place settings, some fantastic floral design and of course, a good helping of decor lighting.

This massive outdoor “gazebo” boasts a phenomenal, pastoral, panoramic view of the surrounding rolling hills, a serene lake and a very open feel. 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!

CCWP Autumn Wedding Faire – Pavilion on the Lake Atascadero

The Central Coast Wedding Professionals held their second annual Autumn Wedding Faire last Sunday at the Pavilion on the Lake in Atascadero.  Brides had a great chance to meet great vendors as the CCWP faires are the only wedding faires on the Central Coast where vendors have to qualify to participate.  And you could easily tell by the amazing booths that were there.  This faire also had a V.I.B. or Very Important Bride room, for those that preregistered (See pictures below).  We are looking forward to the next Faire on Sunday January 31st at the Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo.

Here are pictures using our Kramer Entertainment Decor Lighting Design.  Pictures taken by Mike Larson

No Power.. No Problem. Kramer Team to the resue.

Imagine spending all that time planning your wedding.  Imagine your cocktail hour coming to an end and all your guests are starting to head over to the reception.  Just then, the power goes out all over town.  You’ve got a dark room, no music, and guests ready to come in and eat dinner.  Not what you were expecting.

In 13yrs of business we’ve never faced this situation until Friday September 18 at Cambria Pines Lodge, when, because of a car accident several miles away, the power went out for 2hrs.  With the room only lit by a few decorative candles, everybody wondered what would happen.

It turns out, we had a special power generator that allowed us just enough power to power our DJ system.  Also, because our new LED lights have extremely low power draw, we had enough power to power one light that we shined in the center of the ceiling allowing everyone to see.  The night turned out to be an incredible party and later the lights finally came back on.  The next day we purchased one of the power generators for each DJ system that our DJs use.  No power, no problem.

Thanks to Patrice for making everything go off without a hitch, even without power.  Also thanks to the Cambria Pines staff who, armed with flashlights, presented an incredible meal on time.  I still don’t know how they did it so smoothly.  Thanks for helping to making Megan and Brent’s wedding everything they’ve always wanted, with or without power.

Jennifer and Scott’s Wedding – Meridian Winery, Paso Robles

Jennifer and Scott held their wedding at Meridian Winery in Paso Robles last Saturday.  Thanks to superstar coordinator Laura Robertson from TOS Events and Corinne from Panacea Event Floral Design, the place looked amazing.  The use of Fabric above the dancefloor helped to create a sub-roof effect over the event.  We loved bringing our Kramer Entertainment garden string lighting and amber up lighting as it allowed us to turn off the standard fluorescent lighting and create a softer and warmer feel.  They decided not to do a cake, but instead had the dessert bar that is becoming more popular.  It was filled with sweets and cupcakes that we pin spotted for added effect.

We got the chance to work with Rachel from Mike Larson Photography, who is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet.  Can’t wait to see her pictures.  Epic Weddings at Catering Unlimited did a great job as always with the food.  What a class act.  It’s a pleasure working with all the members of the Broad Street Event Group.
