Featured Planner: EventFull Weddings

We provide a luxury, boutique-style service that will make your wedding planning experience memorable and stress free.

With detailed communications and elevated client experiences, we’ll help you navigate your wedding planning from start to finish. Our services include design assistance, planning and coordination.


What We Offer:

Not all wedding planners offer design and planning but with our full and partial planning packages you’ll get both. This streamlines the process for you allowing you to work with
one professional. All of our packages include “day of coordination. If you choose day of only, we start working with you and your vendor team sixty days out from your wedding date. We also offer options to include add ons like bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, etc.

Our Wedding Style Is:

All weddings really are beautiful and special but I would best describe our personal style as modern with moody romance.  We like to think outside of the box with unexpected colors, decor, timelines and floor plans to make things interesting and unique for guests. Our ideal clients like a sophisticated highly styled design with attention to details.

Our Personality Is:

I would best describe us as fun-loving, people pleasers. with a passion for design.  You can’t be in this business if you aren’t at least a little Type A but we balance that with a relaxed vibe.

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

My inspiration is derived from a love for entertaining friends and family in beautiful environments. Every holiday or special occasion at our house was always an event. After planning my daughter’s wedding I was hooked! I launched EventFull Weddings and retired from my corporate job to pursue my passion. I believe there really isn’t anything better than bringing people together to celebrate life’s special occasions.

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

Call us hopeless romantics?  Helping our clients plan their weddings is so rewarding and truly an honor. We meet our clients at the beginning of what is to become one of the most memorable events in their lifetime and are with them until the end. I love knowing we are helping them by alleviating their anxiety and stress and there really isn’t anything better than seeing the look on their faces when they see everything come to life.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We offer wedding planning and design. What is the difference? Wedding planning is more about  logistics and production and less about design. Your planner will be with you from beginning to end making sure all details are considered and the process is seamless.  Wedding design  is focused on the aesthetics of your event.  A wedding designer will work with you on bringing your vision to life.  Not all companies do both but with EventFull Weddings, you get the luxury and benefit of working with one skilled and experienced person to satisfy all your needs in one place. 

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

I am obsessed with British history films and series.

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

I love traveling to other countries and try to take at least one trip each year somewhere abroad. I’ve been to eleven different countries so far with Greece being my favorite and India being the most surprising. The world is a huge place with so many different cultures, architectural styles, and cuisines. Travel opens the mind and soul.

Karen Cerboni, EventFull Weddings, Headshot

Meet Karen Cerboni

I am one of the few people you will find born and raised in Tampa. Before pursuing my passion for wedding planning I spent thirty five years in corporate America. That professional experience prepared me for running my own business and managing the details of planning weddings. I’m married to a wonderful man I met on a train in Chicago while on a girls’ trip. We have one daughter, a son-in-law,  a grand-dog named Franklin, and a beautiful grand-daughter we spoil ridiculously.
When I’m not working, I’m most likely spending time with my family, decorating or redecorating our 100-year-old bungalow  or roaming the aisles of Home Goods. My husband and I love traveling, dining out, going to the movies,  and enjoying our vibrant Downtown Tampa and Hyde Park Village.

Bride and Groom with Dog Wearing Wedding Tuxedo Bandana | Tropical Pink and White Wedding Ceremony Gazebo Altar Decor Inspiration

Vibrant Pink Waterfront Tampa Wedding | Davis Islands Garden Club

We looked for someone who is passionate about what they do, is well organized, communicative, and has a nice design style.

I was very involved with planning, so EventFull Weddings was hired for the partial planning package as a high-level planner and it worked out really well! Karen Cerboni was very thorough from our first consult call all the way through the wedding day. We had monthly check-in calls to stay on track but she was also available anytime via text or call to answer questions. She provided a lot of good recommendations and advice from wording on our invitations to assistance with our DIY seating chart. She even went above and beyond after the wedding and returned one of our rentals while we were on our honeymoon. Karen kept everything on track during the big day which was really helpful. Her team also pulled off handling a few minor hiccups without a hitch. My groom never would've noticed, but I have an eye for detail.

We honestly were not looking for a wedding planner until we attended the Tie the Knot wedding event in Ybor and met Karen with EventFull Weddings! We instantly hit it off! I loved her personality and how helpful she was in answering all my wedding-related questions.

They provided great service and were extremely helpful in ensuring everything went smoothly on our wedding day. In hindsight, I would have decided to use them earlier on in the process for more help in planning the details before the wedding day!

We looked for transparency and experience, and Eventfull Weddings had these traits and many more! The website was easy to read, and once we met Karen, she was professional and took all of our concerns seriously. Our wedding planner was excellent and helped us combine our styles effortlessly.

Karen's team was efficient and worked around our hectic schedules. They made the entire experience very stress-free! Even during the aftermath of a hurricane, they made our dream wedding come true, and we were so truly grateful.

Classic, Elegant Old Florida Outdoor Wedding | Tampa Yacht and Country Club

I definitely needed someone who was organized and full-service. My work schedule is crazy. I work in health care, and I never have enough time throughout the day to make phone calls or respond to emails.

I was able to text Karen Cerboni, owner of EventFull Weddings, what I wanted, and she immediately went to work getting it done. I felt she had the time and passion to really care about the planning process. I wanted to hire a small business, and I never felt like I was just another wedding to her. Karen was 100/10!

Peach and Sage Boho Inspired Wedding | Mision Lago Estate

We were nervous about planning our wedding in Tampa all the way in Alabama. I wanted a wedding planner who was resourceful and knowledgeable because we had no idea what to expect. Also, it was a requirement to find someone whose services fit our budget and involved a complete planning package.

We were immediately shown that our planner, Karen, knew what she was doing. EventFull Weddings stepped up to the plate and exceeded our expectations in every way possible!

Timeless Black, White, and Gold Downtown Tampa Wedding | Marriott Water Street

Scott and I were working full-time, and I was also juggling my Master's classes and wedding planning. We wanted someone who would lift a lot of stress off our shoulders and help guide us basically every step of the way. We knew we wanted someone with a lot of experience as well.

Karen, the owner of EventFull Weddings, was hands down one of the most generous, authentic, and professional planners I have met. We could tell she knew exactly what she was doing and was very experienced.

EventFull Weddings was seriously the best decision we could've made. Karen was so on it from the start, we felt like we had nothing to worry about. Any concerns that came up, Karen had a solution. She made sure our dream wedding that we had visioned came to life on our wedding day. We truly couldn't have done it without her and the team. We knew we could trust her with one of the happiest days of our lives. The EventFull team did an amazing job, and I will forever recommend them to anyone. Karen always made time for us whenever we needed her and constantly stayed on top of everything. We had zero hiccups on our wedding day (or maybe there were, but Karen made sure we never knew! We enjoyed our wedding day so much, and we know a big part of it is because of EventFull Weddings.
