Our wedding planning style is:
Diversity is of utmost importance to us and personalization is the key to our success. As designers, we customize each couple’s wedding to their personal love story! From romantic, luxury, southern bell, boho, vintage, organic, just to name a few; each wedding we design is truly one of a kind and unique to the couple we are planning for. We LOVE trend-setting!

We love planning weddings because:
Of our couples, of course! They are our inspiration! We have the honor of being welcomed into our couple’s lives and being a part of one of the most beautiful moments for the two of them together surrounded by their family and loved ones. We learn all about their love stories and have the opportunity to bring in special elements and personal touches that reflect that love into their wedding day. There isn’t a detail we don’t love about planning with our couples. We love textures, colors, fabrics, and absolutely everything design!

If you asked us our absolute favorite moment on a couples 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!

Our personality is:
We believe in dreaming big, going above and beyond and doing it with compassion, heart, style and grace! We are over the moon in love with everything design and detail-oriented! We live for planning, coordinating, designing and executing, awe-inspiring weddings. Planning our couple’s weddings isn’t just our careers, it’s our absolute passion!

What makes our business stand out from other planners is:
Each of our couples becomes a part of our Blue Skies Family. Planning a couple’s wedding isn’t a business transaction, it’s a trusting partnership and friendship. Our couples provide us with the opportunity and trust to plan their first day together as one! We don’t just logistically plan our couple’s weddings; we also become their storytellers, coaches, nurturers, dreamers, designers and build friendships that last a lifetime. From Creative Direction, Logistical Planning and to the Main Production, we create our couple’s weddings to be as extraordinary as the relationship they are celebrating!

Blue Skies Weddings and Events Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples: 

“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!” – Lexi and Tucker | Neutral and Gold South Tampa Wedding

“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.” – Courtney and Alexander | Purple and Gold Spring Downtown St. Pete Wedding
