SPE is a full-service wedding planning and design company based in the Tampa Bay Area. We specialize in working with fun, bold, and adventurous couples that really want to wow their guest with amazing experiences. We love bringing out-of-the-box ideas to life and working with creative color palettes that will make heads turn.
Our Wedding Style Is:
Our wedding planning style is fun and relaxed. We love creating authentic connections with couples and being true partners during the wedding planning phase. From virtual zoom meetings to planning sessions over wine and dinner, our conversations always include more than planning. The more genuinely we can connect with a couple the easier it is to plan a wedding that is uniquely theirs.
Our Personality Is:
SPE is fun and bubbly, but leave it to us to also bring the calm. As your planners, we want to make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed when we are together, but we will also be having fun! We serve couples best when we can joke around and also get down to business.
What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:
After planning my own wedding and a few friends weddings I became one of the in house coordinators at a popular St. Pete venue. After 3 years of getting know the business I felt it was time to share my passion for planning and designing out-of-the box weddings with couples beyond the walls of one venue.
We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:
We love planning weddings because we truly do love celebrating love. It is always an honor to be one of the first people to congratulate our couples when they say I do. Being a part of such a special day and witnessing so many raw emotions still gets us every time. Wedding planning to us is not just about the logistics or aesthetics that go into your wedding day, but instead, it’s a challenge to also incorporate our couples love story all around. Dreaming up the small details that make weddings truly unique is one of those things that fill up our cup with joy.
What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:
At SPE we are untraditional which doesn’t mean we aren’t professional. We learned early on that the couples we serve best are those that are unconventional and like to have fun. Bold color palettes and a focus on guest experiences are another way that SPE stands out. Our couples know from the beginning that we are the right fit because just like that we really click.
One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:
I love traveling! Whether it’s a family trip, girls’ trip, or even the occasional solo trip I love exploring new locations near and far.

Dark and Moody Goth-Inspired Downtown St. Pete Wedding | NOVA 535
We actually researched a few wedding planners before landing with Stephany Perry Events. After an initial google search of “Tampa Bay wedding planners,” we went through Instagram and picked out a few whose styles we really liked. After narrowing down the few we liked, we did a deep dive into each of their personal social media accounts to make sure they were politically aligned with our personal ideals.
We found Stephany through the NOVA 535 website and saw that she had posted in support of the BLM movement, which was baseline enough for us to know we were on the same page about certain ideologies.
After our initial meeting with Stephany, we knew we were in good hands. She was so kind and patient throughout the entire year we worked with her. John and I are both type-A planners and loved the level of detail Stephany put into every decision. She is incredibly professional, prompt, and willing to go above and beyond for any request you might have. We were very new to the world of weddings, and she walked us through every detail with patience and without judgment.
When planning was stressful, Stephany was there to help us through it. She worked within our budget, helped us make tough decisions, worked within our covid limitations, helped manage tricky family dynamics, worked to make special/odd requests a reality, and worked with us remotely from our home in Philly! She truly wanted the best for us, and we never felt pressured to do anything we weren't comfortable with. The vendors we booked through her were also extremely professional and kind! On the day of the wedding, when my nerves were at an all-time high, she was three steps ahead of everyone, and the whole event literally ran perfectly. She helped us have the wedding of our dreams that we will remember for the rest of our lives!
Minimal Boho Garden Tampa Bay Wedding | Mill Pond Estate
I wanted help with especially the coordination of our wedding day as I had most of our ideas of who the vendors would be. I wanted someone who not only had the experience but also loved what they were doing and could help put my vision in place.
Our venue recommended Stephany Perry Events, and thank God she did. Stephany and I clicked immediately! I loved her spunky personality, and her talent speaks for itself! She knew immediately how to implement my ideas and make them into realities while also adding her own input on things. She made things so simple and run so smoothly.
When I felt stressed about certain things, she would immediately set up a Zoom meeting and made me feel better. There is no way my day would have been as perfect as it was without her.
