The Sheraton Grand Hotel Transformed For Italian/Guatemalan Inspired Wedding

December 22, 2009

It’s funny. The significance of lighting and production design is never more apparent than when you want to take your guests on a journey or transform an event space to create a theme that fits your personality or vision. When Stephanie and Justin Castillo chose Extreme Productions Entertainment to be their DJ/MC and Lighting and Production company for their wedding, we JUMPED at the chance! Stephanie and Justin told us in our first planning meeting “We want to take our guests on a journey… we want to feel like we are celebrating in a courtyard in Guatemala… or Italy… or any of the other romantic courtyards we have ever visited.”

We love  it when we have the opportunity to take guests on  a journey 🙂

Extreme Productions Entertainment Lighting and Production

The beautiful Sheraton Grand Hotel – Sacramento was the stage for this wonderful and fun event. Our design included dividing the ballroom into sections to accomplish the wedding courtyard reception (as pictured above) along with a beautiful rustic chapel inspired church setting for the ceremony to take place (below)

Debra and her team from Tres Fabu Event Planning and Design always go above and beyond. This wedding was no exception. Debra surprised our wonderful clients with a massive (and beautiful) working fountain complete with Italian paver tile. She even laid moss in the cracks to make it appear as if this piece of the courtyard had been there for years! Talk about a WOW factor!

When the bride and groom entered their reception in a private “room reveal”, their reaction said it all… “Over the top! WOW! We could not have imagined anything like this… we cannot believe this is OUR wedding!”

Those are the reactions we strive for! 🙂

Below is a picture from the Extreme Productions Entertainment stage moments before guests arrive into the reception site.

We just received a wonderful thank you card from Stephanie and Justin! “Thank you for continuing to amaze us-days after our wedding. You really are the creators of magic and we are still in awe of how amazing our wedding was…”

Stephanie and Justin… the pleasure was all ours. 🙂

Birthday Party With Zany Lighting And Fun Entertainment

December 10, 2009

When our client birthday girl extraordinaire Beth Dodson approached us and told us she wanted “a party that was outrageous and would leave people saying wow!”… we were INSTANTLY excited to design and produce this party for her. Elizabeth LOVES fun colors, fun people and a good time. We went right to work designing a zany and outrageous lighting and production platform complete with fun graphics, wild colors and theatrics such as a light up bar, light up tables and chairs and computer controlled lighting that would add energy and surprise to the mix. In addition, we worked with out business partner Steve Bloom and the group at AEC/Hip Service to make the event come to life.

Putting the final touches on the lighting before guests arrive. Computer controlled lighting controls the room, the bar and the tables. FUN

Lighting fills room with fun colors, shapes and graphics making this theme thrive!

A Holiday Celebration Cirque Style!

December 9, 2009

We had such a blast helping to create and celebrate this event! Matt Brys and the group from Extreme Productions Entertainment was on hand to be the Master of Ceremonies and DJ as well as provide some wii and arcade style gaming. Working with our business partner and the event’s producer Sharri Black with CMC Events, we made the Cirque style holiday party come to life. The over 400+ guests  were treated to flair, theatrics and fun at every turn! From the aerial Cirque performers to the actors on stilts, the greeters and the holiday characters… this event came to life!

Our thanks to this wonderful client for allowing us to entertain them and assist to produce such a fun and outside-the-box holiday celebration. We can’t wait to do it again for you next year… with a whole new theme! Sharri, Janice and the group at CMC… you ROCK! Wow!
