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!

Real Corporate Event – ACI Jet’s 20th Anniversary

Real Corporate Event – ACI Jet’s 20th Anniversary

The Kramer Events team has been working diligently behind the scenes to prepare for this year’s Wedding and Event season, and they kicked it off strong with the ACI Jet’s 20th Anniversary Gala.

The Kramer Lighting crew set up an amazing display, arranging multiple sets of blue and white uplights along the walls of the hanger to create a colorful effect throughout the building. Pinspot lights on the ceiling illuminated the beautiful centerpieces arranged on the dining tables, and custom projections, an airplane, and the ACI Jet’s Logo can be seen along the back wall of the hanger.

Kramer Events Coordinator, Renee Weber worked endlessly to ensure the night came together just right. The guests loved the custom airplane place cards that she handcrafted directing them to their appropriate seat on the “runway”.

Kramer Events Photography and Videography captured guests arriving to the party in front of the ACI Jet’s custom backdrop, and captured all the key moments throughout the evening.

It was inspirational for our team to hear how far ACI Jet has come in their 20 years of existence, and how much they give back to their employees and the community.

Real Wedding: Katelyn & Bruce • Bianchi Winery

Bruce & Katelyn’s Wedding • 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 inseparable 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.

Congratulations Brian & Amber!

We had an amazing time being apart of the first ever Finally I Do Wedding in San Luis Obispo! Brian and Amber were voted on by their community to receive a completely free wedding from participating wedding vendors. Their love story captured the heart of all of us and their undying love was evident from the moment they stepped into our office.


13043317_624839207669012_5775919382135045034_n

“Amber teaches seven art classes at Templeton High School and dedicates countless hours before, after school, and on weekends, mentoring her students. Amber started the student Art Club, served as the Assistant Activities Director /ASB advisor, and doubled the participation in the California Scholarship Federation club which emphasizes students serving their community. Brian is a Volunteer Firefighter with SLO County Fire and is the Training Officer for his station. In the role of Training Officer, Brian is also a mentor to new recruits, many of whom are students straight out of high school still trying to decide their paths in life. Instead of spending hours volunteering as mentors and roles models, Brian and Amber could take on second jobs to help save for their wedding. But the couple says they’re not interested in giving up their passion for helping and guiding others, simply to spend more money and energy on themselves. They were nominated by a former student and fire academy trainee.”
