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!
This morning we received a phone call from theKnot.com, informing us that we’ve been selected as one of “the best of the Knot.com.” We are excited and humbled as we know the survey was based on votes from our past customers. We sincerely thank our past brides for and hard working team for allowing us to achieve this award.

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.
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 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.
Melissa and I attended the Wedding MBA conference in Las Vegas. It’s refreshing connecting with wedding businesses across the world and bring home fresh ideas to share with our brides and grooms. The conference was filled with executives from the knot, weddingwire, Martha Stewart. Look for WeddingWire.com to become THE online resource for Brides and Vendors. Our favorite presentation was from Andy Ebon, who had over 1000 in awe with their jaws dropped as he called to attention all the ways wedding vendors have caused “weddings of mass destruction.” It was a hard truth for some and a reminder of our need for attention to the details. Among those we had the chance to hang out with were some of National DJ industry greats like Peter Merry, Drax, Randy Bartlett, Ron Brown, and the Kansas American Disc Jockey Association crew. We can’t wait to share some of the ideas we learned with our brides.
In addition to meeting Vanilla Ice this year at the DJ convention we got a chance to meet nationally recognized Professional DJ trainer Mike Walter from Elite Entertainment in New Jersey. He helped us form the basis for our DJ/MC training program and has his own video available.
We got a chance to hang out with Mike and his girlfriend Kelly as we showed them what California and Paso Robles has to offer… Vino! Cool people, cool accent, cool friends!
Cheers to New Jersey’s Finest
Matt and Sarah chose Robert Hall Winery for their beautiful Paso Robles Wedding. On a warm day, their ceremony was in the cool cellars below with the reception in the grand amphitheater.
Together with our lighting designer they chose our solid color amphitheater lighting package with theater seating lighting. Because we use all linked LED lighting, we were able to change and fade between colors for important moments and event transitions. Call today to schedule an appointment to meet with our full time lighting designer and see all your Robert Hall lighting options. (805) 544-9900.
