Elegante Entertainment at Briscoe Manor | Wedding DJ Video

I was recently the MC/DJ at a wedding at Briscoe Manor. We had the pleasure of also doing the Up Lighting, Photo Booth, and Monogram Projection and Display.

Below is a 10 Minute Video of Briscoe Manor as we decorated it with our NON-LED uplights and our Monogram Displayed on the walls.

Monogram Designs in Houston

Last year, in July, I wrote an article about Gobo Designs to inform you, my readers, about Gobos and Monograms as well as to provide a few ideas to help you get started in the design of your own Monogram, if you wanted to do it on your own.

What is a Monogram?

A Monogram is not the same thing as a Gobo, however,  a Monogram can be used in a Gobo.

Sounds confusing? Well let me see if I can clear it up a bit.

A Monogram is the actual design that you use for your wedding.

A Gobo, is the metal plate that goes inside a special light, that is used to project your monogram.

Clear as Mud? 🙂 Good!

Why another Post on Monogram Design?

Well I’m glad you asked, we have been designing Monograms for our brides since of Late ’08 (Rhymes.. lol… Sorry I’m easily amused.) As I mentioned in the introduction to this post, in July of last year I did a blog post with a compilation of most of the Monograms that I had designed up to that point. To be honest, my main goal was to rank high on the search engines for Gobo Designers in Houston in Google and the other Search engines.

Well That worked extremely, extremely well… I was able to expand my business and offer the Monograms to some of the brides whom already had a DJ and even up lighting and all they wanted was to have their Monogram displayed at their event.

Anyway, this post was inspired by a call I got today from a bride who all she wanted was for me to help her design her monogram… I am more than glad to be able to help her and what she does with her monogram after we get it designed, then that’s up to her… So thank you for calling Michelle! 🙂

To our readers:

Whether you are a Bride researching Monograms, a Quinceanera looking for something different for your event, a birthday guy/gal looking for a way to put your stamp on your party, or another DJ trying to get into the whole Monogram Design world, feel free to be inspired by our designs and come up with your own!

So to continue with the last post on Gobo Design, I will put a few more of the Elegante Entertainment’s Monogram Designs for the second part of 2009 and the early part of 2010.

Monogram Designs in Houston


And if you can tell, there was one Monogram in particular that has been very popular… I really surprised myself, most people who call me ask if I can do that design for their event… If you are in the market for someone to design your Monogram, feel free to shoot as an email or give us a call!

Happy Planning!

Gobo Design in Houston

About Gobo Design

Gobo Design is something that we recently started doing along with Gobo Rental. Gobo Design can be as easy as taking you monogram from you cake topper or you napkins and replicating the design into a Gobo, or a small metal that goes into the Gobo Projector.

About the Gobo Projector

A Gobo Projector is a specialized light that is used in theaters and more recently at weddings and corporate functions. The light, also known as a Leko, has a special slot cut into the light where you can stick your metal Gobo Design and it can project the image into a wall or the dance floor.

Gobo Design Pricing

Although, we really don’t charge our clients for the actual Gobo Design, we usually decide to give the design as a thank you for selecting our services. A lot of the time, they already have a Gobo design that they can use. As mentioned above, you can just take the monogram and use it for your Gobo Design. To rent our Gobo Projector and our Gobo with the design already etched into it,  visit our Gobo Monogram design Rental Section of our DJ website.

Custom Gobo Design Pictures and Examples

Below are a few of our recent Gobo Designs and Examples.


Paraiso Maravilla Houston Reviews: Uplights Decore and Morel

Paraiso Maravilla is located on:

5714 Fairdale Ln
Houston, TX 77057-6303

Map to Paraiso Maravilla:

The Place is Elegant as they call themselves, the Elegant Alternative, and I couldn’t agree more.

Very beautiful and very romantic. It’s unique, there is no other place in Houston that has the same elegant and romantic atmosphere. Paraiso Maravilla brings the outside world inside. It’s Stone pillars, walls and flooring make you feel like you are on the outside with the benefits of what we Houstonians cannot live without: AC!

Here is a summary of how they describe themselves:

The Elegant Alternative

Paraiso Maravilla is one of Houston’s most exclusive private event venues. Reminiscent of the 17th and 18th century villas, Paraiso Maravilla’s beautiful gardens, spectacular fountains, and decorative wrought-iron and hand-carved stonework provide an unforgettable backdrop for your special day.

Here is a video of our uplights at a recent event at Paraiso Maravilla in Houston TX.  You can see for yourself the elegance and the beauty of the place.

Additionally, we were able to accent the elegance and make it a warm elegant atmosphere wit just a few uplights strategically placed to highlight the stone columns and a few of the unique backgrounds in Paraiso Maravilla.

This is probably one of my favorite places in all of Houston!

Hope you Enjoyed the video and a breif review of Paraiso Maravilla.

Happy Planning!
