    Could not ask for more!

    Kristy and her team at 500 Pearl have gone above and beyond from when we toured the venue to date. There was a special champagne toast waiting for us along with a personalized letter board and gift bag, and honestly these touches were the deciding factor for us. We felt honored and valued and cannot imagine our big day somewhere else. We’ve also had a tasting already and the food far exceeded our expectations. We are looking forward to next October and hoping to make our guests feel as special as we have so far!

    Everything we wanted and more

    Once we walked into the magical room of the Forbes Theater room we knew that we wanted our special day to be at this location. Kristy has been an amazing resource, helpful, and has been there for us since day 1. She has answered all of our concerns right away. We can not recommend the location or Kristy enough!!

Hi, Everybody!

My names Kristy and I am here to help you plan the wedding of your dreams! I have been in the event planning industry for the past 4-years having extensive experience in planning and executing events from 10 guests up to, and including 1,000 guests. I have been exposed to planning multicultural events, corporate events, social events, and of course weddings with a great pleasure in doing so! I have gained some of my "world class" Hospitality knowledge and experience by working in two professional internship roles at Walt Disney World. Fun facts, I love Disney and I love my Two Pug Dogs more than anything. If you have pets, please keep in mind that 500 Pearl is pet friendly and we'd all love to meet your fur babies! :)
