The best money we spent!
MARRIED: December 5, 2021
As we look back, we can't imagine planning our wedding without Kerry and the Blue Sky team. They were absolutely crucial. I'm an event planner myself in the corporate world, so I doubted hiring someone to do the wedding planning at all. It was the best thing that we spent money on and so worth it. We had to postpone our wedding day due to the wildfires and we are out of state. Kerry made this process so easy and comforted our nerves every step of the way. She thought of everything and is just a joy to be around. We would definitely recommend hiring BSE for your wedding in Tahoe!! Mary & Michael
My husband and I worked with Blue Sky Events. Chelsea was assigned to us as our lead planner for our wedding, her organization and expertise was invaluable. We were planning our Tahoe wedding from Washington, DC, so it was super helpful to have a local expert. I researched and interviewed multiple wedding planners in the area, and Blue Sky rose to the top of my list because of their positive attitudes, their welcoming energy, and their attention to detail. The week of our wedding, Chelsea made sure that all of the details were taken care of, and her coordination the day of was amazing! We never worried about anything the day of, and the event was perfect. Many of our friends and family told us that they had never been to such a wonderful, well-executed wedding.
We also really enjoyed Chelsea's personality - she was fun, laid back, but also very competent and took our opinions seriously. The day of the wedding, she made sure we were feeling good and happy, and after the ceremony she put together a plate of our appetizers for us with our signature cocktails to make sure that we got to enjoy everything. She was amazing, and we would highly recommend Blue Sky Events for planning a beautiful, fun, smooth wedding! Claire, Bride
I had a great experience working with Blue Sky Events and specifically, my planner Aimee, for my wedding this summer. I do a lot of event planning as part of my day job, so my bar is set pretty high. I was extremely satisfied with their services. In particular, Aimee did a wonderful job recommending and helping me manage my vendors, and coordination in the weeks leading up to my wedding and on the day itself was outstanding. The whole thing went off without a hitch and was extremely low stress for me, thanks in very large part to Aimee and her team. I would definitely recommend the Blue Sky Team! Katherine, Bride
Where to begin? During the initial planning stages of our destination wedding to Lake Tahoe, we somehow thought we could handle everything ourselves from the other side of the country. Reluctantly, we reached out to Kerry and her team just to say we at least explored the idea of engaging with a wedding planner. Coming from someone who is a total DIY'er, we completely changed our tune- and it was the best decision we made! Kerry tailored the perfect package for our needs.
We were absolutely blessed to be paired with Lindsey Johnson. From day one throughout the next eleven months, Lindsey was not only extremely attentive, she continually hit home runs with her recommendations and suggestions. Having a local planner proved to be intrinsically valuable. Even though we picked out most of our vendors prior to engaging Blue Sky Events, she already had amazing working relationships with them from past events. Having that familiarity on your side goes a long way in removing some of those "unknowns" and the stress that comes with it.
Our ceremony and reception took place at the top of ski resort. From a logistical standpoint, this isn't the easiest venue due to vendor loading times, etc. Due to her vast experience of working with both the venue and our vendors, she was an absolute maestro in all communications leading up to, and day of our wedding.
As everyone knows, SOMETHING almost always doesn't go as planned. That's the beauty of life, I suppose! In our case, we had a massive hail storm right before our wedding ceremony was to begin. Lindsey knew how much an outdoor ceremony meant to us, so she immediately took charge and worked with the venue staff, our officiant, and our guests who were patiently waiting at the bottom of the tram to make the necessary adjustments to make it happen. And it was perfect!
We highly recommend BSE and their amazing staff! Christopher, Groom
Perfect Planning, Perfect Day! Kerry Hawk and her team at Blue Sky events are BEYOND AMAZING! They are delightful to work with and truly make wedding planning a more relaxed and enjoyable process than we imagined possible. They have a "can do" attitude that means the sky, literally, is the limit because they'll make anything possible. For example, we wanted to parasail away after taking our vows and this seemed daunting to some folks, but Kerry said "fabulous, let's do it!" and it was a highlight of the day.
Kerry turns challenges into opportunities. She and her team were always available for questions by phone and email and met with us repeatedly at the wedding venue, with the caterer, and with the florist. Her attention to detail, timelines, organization and follow-through are impeccable! Our wedding was at a particularly complex venue and due to Blue Sky’s expert planning, logistical savvy, and personal connections with our many vendors, everything went off without a hitch (except we did get hitched)!
And if, like me, you inadvertently try to walk down the aisle without your bridal bouquet, Kerry and her team will save the day! Kerry is kind, creative, and fun. Her team is professional and able to respond to the crazy unforeseen circumstances that are inevitable with any complex event. After our wedding, numerous guests commented on how terrific the Blue Sky team was. They'd be a tremendous asset to anyone planning to walk down the aisle. We'll return to Blue Sky for any future events we host in the Tahoe area. Kim, Bride
