Pepper Tree Ranch on a Thursday in July. Daniel & Julia... Wow!

     Daniel and Julia are this fun, crazy and cool couple who had an idea about what they wanted and didn't stop until they had it perfect. "Fun with Style" is our company motto but they nailed it. One of the best parts of the day was how relaxed and easy going they were. They were able to experience the day almost like a guest, taking it all in and feeling everything from the food (Ribline Catering...yum ) and tear filled toasts to the wild dance party at the end. I know, A DJ's blog is supposed to sound like that but.... it was awesome and It went off! So fun and so crazy. CCWP Photographer (Dana Hodgskinson) was all over it (these are clearly not her images, they're all from my phone) and they had a great local coordinator (Kirsten Farnsworth 805-550-1329) and her crew who were the glue for the whole event.
     This was my first event at a big Central Coast venue called Pepper Tree Ranch working with their "on site" Hannah (she rules) and her team. They've built one of the most beautiful settings you could ever ask for in San Luis Obispo, Ca. The style is the key, the event spaces are stunning with one of the nicest barns we've seen that has a large covered patio for dancing or whatever. They added another pavilion style covered event space on the East side and a Huge grass area for tented events on the West. That's not all, They also have a 1200 square foot tree house style deck and a huge grass area set up for the perfect cocktail party. Now that's enough to make you love it but add a small lake with a platform and arch over looking it for ceremonies and Dang!
      Great Weddings start with a vision that is created by a Bride, a great venue, a coordinator and team of pro's who take that vision and make it happen, this day was all of that. On a Thursday!.....Loved it!! Thank You to Daniel & Julia for letting us be part of it.

Niki & Justin Got Married at The Casitas of Arroyo Grande. "Be Humble, Sit Down" :)

     The Casitas Estate is something really different and that's why Niki & Justin chose this beautiful private place for their wedding day. Pat & Tony Goetz the owners are hands on and very caring people. The vibe is wine country but not winery, private but not lost in farm fields and looks out over the Arroyo Grande Valley with foothills all around.
     The Bride & Groom chose classical guitar versions of modern songs for the prelude to the ceremony giving it a classic style with a twist. Then when it was time, professional coordinator Janet Tacy from Sandcastle Celebrations gave us the "Go" for the Bride to come down the isle, she chose Train's "Marry Me" which was about as perfect as it could be for the moment and the Bride. I loved that the Officiant quoted Kendrick Lamar to the guests as he began the tear filled ceremony by saying Welcome... "Be humble... Sit down" Afterwards they headed out to the recessional song "You are the best thing" by Ray Lamontagne, so perfect.. nailed it!
      After dinner the dance party was so crazy I didn't want it to end. They went off to mainstream, oldies, hip hop and dance right up to the very end. This was a great start for a sweet couple who Thanked their guests with tears in their eyes and started their life together. This was an amazing day and like we always say, it's all about your team, surround yourself with great people and your wedding will rule, This one did and so did this couple :) -Dj Bob
