Our wedding planning style is: 
Our style is your style! Whether it’s rustic-country, sleek-modern, or jaw-dropping glam, we can do it all and do it well! We also love it when our clients bring us UNIQUE inspiration – photos from a recent trip to Italy, your grandmother’s vintage jewelry, or a beautiful fabric that you came across. No problem! We can translate it into a beautiful and fun wedding for you and your guests.

We love planning weddings because:
We are obsessed with the evolution from meeting a client and learning about them to creating a completely personalized, UNIQUE, and fun experience for them and their guests. Seeing a huge smile on our clients’ faces when they realize that we captured who they are, is the ultimate reward for us!

Our personality is:
We are fun and we want our clients to have fun with the wedding planning process! You are planning one of the most important celebrations of your life, if you’re not having fun, then you are NOT doing it right.

What makes our business stand out from other planners is:
We are not your typical, “clipboard in hand” wedding planners. We are designers, (educated and experienced)! Both myself and my associate have degrees in design and have experience in multiple different avenues of design – set design, retail design, hospitality design, residential design, etc. We have the ability to find inspiration, compile a design concept, and organize all of the vendors to make the event detailed and cohesive.

Our pricing:
Our Day of Coordination / Event Management Package starts at $1,800, with Partial Planning services starting at $2,600. Our Full-Service Wedding Planning & Design has a starting price of $6,000.

**Additional fees may apply for weddings outside of the Tampa Bay area, weddings at homes or at venues that require extensive setup, weddings over 100 guests, complex weddings, and weddings that require travel between two locations.**

Contact us today, so we can gather some detailed information about you and your wedding, and compile a personalized service proposal for your wedding and your needs.

UNIQUE Weddings & Events Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“I interviewed several wedding planners before I found Staci from UNIQUE Weddings + Events. Since we live in Seattle, I wanted to find someone who I could communicate with easily over the phone. I found Staci from Marry Me Tampa Bay, and then she found the rest of my vendors. I am in no way someone who is good with details, so I needed someone who could handle all the little things I knew I would forget. Staci is an amazing, talented individual who puts together amazing weddings! I loved all of her previous work, and she was so easy to talk to! She was such a champ and never complained. She did an amazing job, and I could not have done it without her!” -Madeline & Quentin | Urban Meets Garden Chic Downtown St. Pete Wedding

“From the moment we sat down with Staci of UNIQUE Weddings + Events, I just knew she was right for us. She was basically already finishing my sentences and predicting what I wanted based on what we were talking about. I knew that I could trust her with our special day, and I am so incredibly lucky to have found her. Staci was absolutely perfect and made everything come to life. Every bride needs a wedding planner like Staci in their lives! I loved every aspect of our wedding. Everything came together so perfectly, and I have Staci to thank for that.”-Katie and Jason | Organic Blush Pink and Navy St. Pete Wedding

“We spoke with our wedding planner Staci from UNIQUE Weddings and Events, and she was able to look at our Pinterest idea board and come up with an overall theme. From there, Staci put together a draft of more in-detail touches that could bring all of our likes together. We wanted something that screamed summer and brunch that was colorful, and tied into the bountiful amount of murals and art in and around our venue.” -Sarat and Colin | Intimate Organic Copper and Orange South Tampa Wedding

“I asked Staci of UNIQUE Weddings and Events to be our wedding planner because she was professional, detail-oriented and diligent. She helped us bring our vision to life and seamlessly handled every aspect of the wedding. When our wedding day came I was able to focus on enjoying my time with family and friends instead of worrying about the logistical details.” -Anna and John | Lavender and Turquoise Waterfront Sarasota Wedding

“I didn’t really know what to look for in a wedding planner, to be honest. I got lucky AF I think! Staci of [UNIQUE Weddings & Events] and her crew knocked each and every detail out of Wonderland! She and her staff were organized, professional, always on time, and just generally had all their shit together. They operate like a well-oiled machine tending to every last detail. Almost everything about our wedding was unique. Staci had surprised us with a floating rose cake topper. It hung from the ceiling and floated perfectly like a Dali painting above our cake. Truly a perfect finishing touch and delightful surprise. Staci killed it!” -Paige and Rick | Whimsical Alice in Wonderland Inspired St. Pete Wedding
