Kelly Kennedy Weddings and Events

With over 10 years of experience in the wedding industry, I strive for perfection in all aspects of planning weddings. My background in catering has allowed me to fully grasp the concept of all different types of weddings and events and has allowed me the experience of being versatile. I truly enjoy being a part of the bride and groom’s perfect day!

My wedding planning style is:
My wedding planning style is laid back. The more relaxed and on top of everything I can be, the better off my couples are going to be. I like to have my hands on all the details so I can guarantee a successful wedding day for my couples. I love to offer my creative suggestions to help bring their vision to reality.

I love planning weddings because:
I feel fortunate to have found my calling in life. Planning is a part of me – it is who I am supposed to be. Along with being a mom, planning events comes naturally to me. I love being detailed and doing everything that I can possibly do to cover all the aspects of a wedding so that my bride and groom can truly have the best day of their life.

My personality is:
Fun and easy-going. I feel confident in my abilities as an event planner therefore that allows me to bring my personality out and show my couples that the planning process can be an enjoyable one!

What makes my business stand out from other planners is: Not only do I go above and beyond for my couples, I go the next step by offering decor rentals. I like to think of myself as unique because I do offer this additional service. I try and find unique pieces that will appeal to my couples and give them the option to make life just a little easier on them by letting me provide these rentals. Whether it’s a dessert table or a cool piece of furniture for their gifts and cards – I want to be able to give them options rather than the standard.

My pricing:
I offer three different packages:
Full Service Package- $5,000 (wedding budgets $19,000 or less) or 17% of the total ending budget for weddings above $20,000
Wedding Management Package – $1,300 (most familiar with a day-of planner)
Partial Planning and Design – $2,500

Kelly Kennedy Weddings and Events Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“I looked for a wedding planner who could take away our stress because we decided to get married during a pandemic, which we were able to keep our original date and venue, we were in the middle of selling our house, and we were renovating our new home. We had multiple family members use Kelly Kennedy Weddings and Events, and after our first call with her, Scott and I instantly knew she was the perfect fit! We knew just how sweet and soft her voice was that it would be an easy, funny planning adventure.” -Kourtney and Scott | Vintage Modern Anna Maria Island Wedding

“Kelly Kennedy Weddings offers an amazing day-of package, but really she starts helping you from the moment you hire her. She takes over six weeks out from your wedding and even before then for us because of the holidays. When we first met Kelly I immediately knew that she valued our business and was going to be there for me when things didn’t go as planned. She went above and beyond to make sure that Roger and I had everything planned in advance. She remembered everything that I forgot! Kelly knew my style and even wrote our bridal party’s names in gold on leaves as decor for the bridal table without me even asking. I couldn’t imagine our wedding day without her!” -Laci and Roger | “Ballroom in a Barn” Inspired Rustic Wedding

“When looking for a wedding planner we wanted someone who wouldn’t try to push their ideas on us. We needed someone who was creative, organized and approachable. We chose Kelly because she had planned one of our close friend’s weddings a few months before and did an amazing job. The day of our wedding, Kelly ensured things flowed effortlessly. We didn’t feel stressed at all because we knew she had it handled! She truly exceeded our expectations and made our day better than we could have ever imagined!” -Beth and Ben | Elegant Dusty Blue and Gray Bradenton Wedding

“We hired Kelly because she was kind, professional, and innovative. I felt I could really open up to her about my concerns and questions about the planning process or budgeting. If I wanted to incorporate something but knew it was out of the budget, Kelly was always able to come up with an affordable solution. Because of Kelly, we were able to fully enjoy our special day and didn’t have to worry once about any hiccups that occurred. She was absolutely wonderful! Kelly is the best!” -Roxy and Robert | Champagne, Gold, and Pink Tampa Wedding
