    From start to finish Jennifer and Southern Skies Events were amazing!. She went above and beyond all expectations. Our daughters wedding was perfect. These times are challenging, however Jennifer made sure all our guests were safe, comfortable and having a wonderful experience. It was AMAZING! I would highly recommend Jennifer and Southern Skies for any wedding or gathering.

    Southern Skies Events - Highly Recommend

    Lauren at Southern Skies Events was such a joy to work with for our wedding. Her clear passion for events made me feel at ease during the final weeks before our wedding. Additionally, during the wedding she handled everything so well that if anything went wrong I was completely oblivious. I was able to be fully present during my big day without worrying about any details. Would highly recommend.
