If you asked us our absolute favorite moment on a couple’s wedding day, (next to the walk down the aisle of course!), the one that just melts our hearts…It’s the moment we get to have a private reveal with our couple of their transformed reception venue, just before their guests come in. Their reactions are absolutely, priceless as they see all of the ideas, planning, dedication, personal touches, and design throughout the process of months and possibly years, all came together flawlessly, beyond what they ever dreamed! That’s the moment for us, that has us falling in love with weddings over and over and over again!

Someone who could get my vision and take initiative for a month of planning to tie all the details together!

I chose Blue Skies Weddings and Events because I saw they worked with many of the other vendors I chose, so I knew they would make a good team with a history of working together. They were the most reasonably priced for what they had to offer, which was a lot! Heather went above and beyond with every detail; I didn't even have to ask her for things. She just knew what I needed!

I hired a wedding planner because I wanted to enjoy the experience and not be stressed out. Day-of services are crucial in my opinion. I didn’t have to think or worry about anything and could truly be present and mindful during that special day. Blue Skies was amazing, and I truly feel like I have made forever friends with Heather and her team. They were always available to me when I had questions, attended any appointment with me for support, and kept my spirits high on the wedding day. I highly recommend Blue Skies.

Kelly from Blue Skies was all I wanted and more in a wedding planner. We couldn’t have been happier with her service throughout our planning process and of course on the big day. She was always so quick to answer any questions I had or talk through any crazy ideas I came up with. Kelly ensured our special day was perfect, and we could not be more grateful that she was there!
