Blue Sky, and our chief wedding planner Kerry Hawk did an UNBELIEVABLE job planning and coordinating our wedding at Ehrman Mansion, south of Tahoe City, CA, this fall. Ehrman is a tricky venue -- everything has to be shipped in because it is in a state park, and timing is tight because there is a limited window available for using the venue. Kerry coordinated everything masterfully, and all the while exuded an air of calm and confidence.
One aspect of the reception that particularly has to be mentioned: our DJ (who we'd found ourselves rather than through Blue Sky -- I guess a mistake) cancelled on us on the day of the wedding. Blue Sky was able to find us a replacement immediately, even before Kerry called us to tell us about the original cancellation. So we never had even a moment of thinking we were in the lurch.
Blue Sky were also consistently responsive to emails and calls before the event, and did a great job working with us originally to customize the set of services we wanted. They handled all of the arrangements with vendors in the period leading up to the event, which saved us a lot of headaches.
Overall: what can I say but great job. Can't say enough about Kerry and Blue Sky. Only regret was not hiring them right at the beginning when we were first planning things.
Lindsey planned our wedding from start to finish and I don't know how we would have done it without her! She walked us through every decision and vendor selection laying out thoughtful options, and giving her advice where we needed it. On the day I didn't have to think about anything and it was the smoothest, most stress-free day I could have imagined. We had SO MANY compliments on our wedding and it's all due to Lindsey's careful planning.
I realized I was in over my head towards the end of my wedding planning. I had too much going on and not enough will power to pull all the strings together. I checked with many wedding planners, some flat out refused a day of or month of event planning process, some told me I couldn’t afford them (very rude...). But Blue Sky Events made me feel extremely welcome! They didn’t make me feel bad for forgetting details I forgot to tell them till a few weeks before hand, and they really took hold of all the strings and pulled it together. Thank you specifically to Aimee who really made my day come together perfectly (even after a fire marshall almost put a kaibosh on the whole thing for no real reason. She handled it and if I didn’t have her there it would have been a major issue). And I believe her assistant’s name was Keri (pronounced curry. I am so sorry I don’t know the spelling of your name. I hope I got it right!). Thank you for helping out and making my day super special! We really had a wonderful day all thanks to you guys :)
We loved working with you and your family! The day was absolutely beautiful.
Kerry just made our wedding everything I had imagined it would be and more! I hired her and her company as a month of coordinator for my Edgewood October 7th wedding. She did everything from small favors to herding my sometimes oblivious family.
I explained my wedding vision to her and she delivered perfectly. I couldn't be more grateful for the help and support that she gave to me and my family on that special day.
I would highly recommend Kerry and her company. I'll be calling them for our 10th wedding anniversary celebration ;)
Thank you Kerry! xoxo
It was our pleasure! Thank you for your kind words. Your friends and family were so fun, we loved every minute of it!
I received the full service package with Blue Sky Events since I live about 4 hours away from South Lake Tahoe and I could not have been happier with everything the staff did. My husband and I met with Kerry to begin with and she was very personable and understanding of our situation and time constraints. The pricing can seem off putting at first for someone who has never planned a wedding before, but their services and efforts are worth much more after everything is said and done.
We mainly worked with Melissa and Lindsey during the whole process. Melissa did leave Blue Sky Events in the middle of our wedding planning process, but Lindsey picked up right where Melissa left off and the transition was seamless. I have to admit I was worried when this happened due to creating such a bond with Melissa, but Lindsey and Kerry made me feel reassured that nothing would be dropped and nothing was. The vendors that were recommended by Blue Sky were fantastic. Kerry, Melissa, and Lindsey were responsive to everyone one of my emails. Even to the point where I would be emailing Lindsey on her day off thinking she would get back to me the next business day, but she would get back to me that night. I was amazed and thankful due to my anxiety was running high when it was getting close to the wedding.
The wedding occurred at Edgewood late September 2017 and now since the wedding and planning is in the past, I am still impressed with Lindsey's professionalism, knowledge, and kindness. She was there during every anxiety ridden moment, especially during interactions with family members that do not understand wedding etiquette. Overall, our wedding day was perfect and Lindsey was with us every step of the way on that day.
If you are thinking of getting a wedding planner, please go with Blue Sky Events. You will not be disappointed at all!
Thank you for this incredible review! We appreciate all your thoughtful words and appreciate you taking to time to explain the process. This will help future clients understand a little "behind the scenes" of planning wedding!
Chelsea and the team at Blue Sky were brilliant! They made it so much easier to plan a Lake Tahoe wedding from far away - helped match us with fabulous local vendors and keep track of all the little details, making the planning process much less stressful. Thanks to Chelsea's attention to detail, we didn't have to worry about anything on our big day - it went perfectly! We would definitely recommend them!
Thank you so much for taking the time to send us such positive feedback! Best Wishes
We got married at Heavenly on Sep 10th 2017. We were originally not thinking of getting a coordinator, but soon realized that we needed one, even though our was a small wedding (60 people). We talked to Kerry at Blue Sky Events and decided to hire them. Kerry was very professional and helpful. Lindsey was our day of coordinator, and let me tell you, she is as good as they come! She made the planning and our big day a breeze. Everything, and I meant EVERYTHING, went great! We were prepared for a few hiccups on our big day, but there were none. The whole day was like a dream, and we are sure that its because Lindsey was always stayed on top of it. We are very thankful and appreciative of Lindsey, Kerry and the entire Blue Sky Events team for making our day so very special and stress free! I would highly recommend them!
Thank you so much for the kind review! Your wedding was beautiful, at the Top of Heavenly!
Hiring Blue Sky Events is the best decision you will make for your wedding!!! Words cannot do our experience justice for how much we loved working with Lindsey and the immense amount of support and relief she gave us planning the wedding and coordinating on our wedding day! After a couple of months trying to find vendors for our destination wedding in North Lake Tahoe I started to get anxiety about the task I had taken on, so I switched my search to wedding planners. Blue Sky Events was a clear first choice based on their response time, friendliness, what they offered and price! You get so much for your money…piece of mind being the most important! Lindsey was assigned to our wedding and we could not have been happier with the services she provided. She helped me pick my vendors, understand wording in contracts and stay on track with planning. My husband and I flew up several times and Lindsey made herself available to join us while we were meeting vendors and gave great advice. She responded quickly to questions or concerns and followed through with everything discussed. Leading up to our wedding weekend I only stressed about minor details and never had any major stress because Lindsey had it all under control. The weekend of our wedding we were not the only people impressed by Lindsey, our family and friends also saw how helpful and organized she was making everything run so smoothly. There were even some bumps in the road on our wedding day that my guests and I were never aware of because Lindsey fixed the situations before they affected our wedding. My parents even appreciated Lindsey so much they mentioned her in their speech! The bottom line is Lindsey and Blue Sky Events are extremely helpful, friendly, organized and professional. Hiring them is the best decision you can make to have an enjoyable, much less stressful engagement, wedding planning and wedding day experience.
Thank you so much! It really was a fun experience to be a part of your wedding! We loved getting to know you, and your family. Best wishes for the future!
Perfect Planning, Perfect Day!
Kerry Hawk and her team at Blue Sky events are BEYOND AMAZING! They are delightful to work with and truly make wedding planning a more relaxed and enjoyable process than we imagined possible.
They have a "can do" attitude that means the sky, literally, is the limit because they'll make anything possible. For example, we wanted to parasail away after taking our vows and this seemed daunting to some folks, but Kerry said "fabulous, let's do it!" and it was a highlight of the day. Kerry turns challenges into opportunities.
Kerry and her team were always available for questions by phone and email and met with us repeatedly at the wedding venue, with the caterer, and with the florist. Her attention to detail, timelines, organization and follow-through are impeccable!
Our wedding was at a particularly complex venue and due to Blue Sky's expert planning, logistical savvy and personal connections with our many vendors, everything went off without a hitch (except we did get hitched!).
And all of this is more remarkable because Blue Sky's event planning rates are shockingly reasonable (to be frank, we worked briefly with another wedding planner who was 3 times as expensive and not nearly as easy to work with).
And if, like me, you inadvertently try to walk down the aisle without your bridal bouquet, Kerry and her team will save the day!
Kerry is kind, creative and fun. Her team is professional and able to respond to the crazy unforeseen circumstances that are inevitable with any complex event. After our wedding, numerous guests commented on how terrific the Blue Sky team was. They'd be a tremendous asset to anyone planning to walk down the aisle. We'll return to Blue Sky for any future events we host in the Tahoe area.
Thank you Kim and Chris, We loved planning your wedding!

Planning a destination wedding for our daughter's wedding in South Lake Tahoe @ Edgewood Golf and Country Club seemed overwhelming in the beginning but finding (on Yelp) and hiring Blue Sky Events made the task smooth and simple! Kerry was our initial contact who was with us from the start. She then assigned our wedding details to Lindsey who was FABULOUS! She guided and directed us with professionalism, listened to every detail! We feel so lucky and blessed to find the right fit for our needs. The Blue Sky Events team deserves more than 5 stars *********! As a professional myself, working in the customer service -real estate industry -details and communication are key components to a successful event/transaction! Kudos to Blue Sky Events for making our event a success! They did it all! **I have read others reviews about the planning pod and feel it is a necessary requirement to planning any event! Lauren and I are appreciative for Lindsey and her assistant for coordinating the #thechristensenwedding2017 and making Lauren and Kyle's wedding a HUGE success! Lindsey we can't "Thank you" enough for everything you did for us! You were with us every step of the way! You are a class act and very professional!! Thank you!!!

Thank you Suzanne! We really appreciate your kind words and loved working with your family!
Kerry was amazing! She is super on top of every detail! A true multi-tasker and detail oriented planner. Couldn't have done this without her. The guests were in awe of what a great job she did (although I let them think I had more to do with it than I did) She will do a great job for you!
Thank you Tina! We love to make the magic from behind the scenes. Congratulations!
Blue Sky was indispensable in planning my daughter's June wedding. We hired them for the full weekend as we had events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, extremely professional. We started with one planner, who transitioned out during our planning process for personal reasons, and Blue Sky made sure the transition to our new planner was seamless. They listened to what my daughter (and I!) wanted, provided very good options and advice, kept track of the budget and handled all of the details. Their promise to me was that they would deal with the stress of the weekend and I would be able to enjoy the whole event. Promise kept! I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Thank you for your time to write this great review!
Chelsea at Blue Sky Events did an amazing job planning my wedding. I was in Grad school during the planning process and Chelsea kept my mother and I on track, while helping me not get too overwhelmed. In the beginning, she gets an idea of who you are then recommends vendors based on this. My idea of a wedding was a great party, with most of it taking place outside. My parents wanted something nice, that they would be proud to have family fly across the country for. My ceremony was at Camp Richardson and the dinner and cocktails were on the lawn at Valhalla with dancing inside the hall. Everything was perfect. Many of the decisions about details were overwhelming for me and in a lot of cases I didn't really care, or couldn't decide. Chelsea would go through the details with me and make it easy. Instead of presenting too many options I could just say "yes, lets do that" or "no, that's not important to me". Chelsea was always available during the week and she was always very patient, even when me, my mother, and my sister were conferencing with her :0! In the end my wedding was so fun. My parents were also very pleased and proud of the end product that extended family flew so far to attend. I would definitely recommend Blue Sky Events to help plan your event. I am confident that all of the planners are amazing, but if you do get Chelsea, consider yourself lucky.
Congratulation! We were honored to be a part of your special day!
Our planner, Lindsey, was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process! Our first planner actually left the company midway through our planning, but honestly at the end of the day I was happy she did because we ended up with Lindsey. She was wonderful - super responsive, full of lots of helpful suggestions, and very experienced. Nothing was too much trouble for her to do and she really made the whole planning process very easy for me, my husband, and my mom :). From the first contact with Kerry, the owner, everything was smooth and easy.
Our wedding day turned out perfectly. And I mean PERFECTLY. Not a thing went wrong (and not in the "the bride didn't hear about it" way - literally nothing went wrong), and I credit Lindsey with making that happen. Thank you so much! I would recommend Lindsey and Blue Sky in a heartbeat.
Thank you Nora! We are so happy that everything went perfect!
Chelsea Grabham and the entire Blue Sky Events team helped make our wedding the most spectacular day ever!! We can't thank them enough for their support and guidance through our 14 months of planning! They helped to make sure we weren't stressed and could enjoy our magical fairy-tale type of day to the fullest!! Thank you so much!! We are so glad we worked with you and recommend you to anyone planning a wedding in the Lake Tahoe area!
With sincere appreciation, Julie and Chris Hovden
Thank you for your kind words! Congratulations!
I don't even know where to start! Chelsea was my wedding coordinator and did such an amazing job! She was so helpful from day one and we really got along well. I was planning a destination wedding and I couldn't have done it without her! Everyone kept asking how I was so calm pre-wedding and I kept answering "Because Chelsea is so awesome, she's taking care of everything!" She was in contact with every single one of my vendors to create a detailed itinerary that made the night go so smoothly. There were some last minute changes and she took care of all the details. I could go on and on but I will end by saying I definitely recommend hiring Chelsea and Blue Sky Events as your wedding coordinator!
Thank you for taking the time to write such positive and kind words about Blue Sky's coordinator Chelsea! Have fun on your honeymoon!
Chelsea from Blue Sky Events was incredibly helpful and professional. I was able to relax on my wedding day because she was there! I highly recommend Blue Sky Events and would use them again for any large event.
Thank you for taking the time to review Blue Sky Events! Congratulations on your wedding!
I could not imagine planning my wedding without Chelsea and Kerry!!! The Blue Sky Team was so helpful and informative in the months leading up to our big day. They had great suggestions and helped bring our vision of the wedding to life.
Unfortunately, we had some bad weather on our wedding day and we had to move the wedding to the back-up venue at Lakeview Lodge on Heavenly 3 hours before the ceremony was to begin!! Blue Sky handled everything!!! Every vendor was contacted and notified, all of our decor and personal items and decor were moved. I was able to enjoy getting dressed and ready without the stress of coordinating a venue location change. I don't know what I would have done without Chelsea! She was so organized, helpful and kind every step of the way.
The ceremony and reception ran so smoothly and everything was beautiful! I highly recommend the Blue Sky Team!
Thank you Morgan!
We were thrilled with our South Lake Tahoe wedding! Blue Sky did amazing job of juggling 80+ out-of-town guests and myriad vendors. Our ceremony was in one location and the reception was in another...so there were a lot of logistics. All was handled in a professional and proficient manner. No wedding goes on without a hitch but our small issues were handled immediately, without notice to any of our guests. My husband and I would highly recommend Blue Sky Events to any bride and groom. Thank you to the Blue Sky Events Team for making our wedding one for the books!
Thank you so much!
I had the pleasure of working with this great creative team for my wedding in August at Jacobs Family Berry Farm. From the very beginning, I was able to trust Kerry and her team with my ideas - which she took to an even grander level..... with my concerns- which were noted and referred to throughout the planning process... and with which elements were most important to our family. The communication and detail between this team of creatives and other vendors involved in the production was second to none. I got thorough and detailed updates throughout the planning process. The team at Blue Sky Events were professional and organized and thoughtful down to even the few days prior to the wedding - checking on our own last minute nerves ! - The wedding Blue Sky Events put together for us was magical. It was more than I could have ever even dreamed of .... starting from a simple Pinterest board and showcasing amazing details. They were in sight at every timeline change, they were attentive and thorough with the sequence of events we decided on. They were perfect with music cues and cake cutting.... all the way down to a surprise exit. Truly a memory to last a lifetime. I would highly recommend Blue Sky Events for any event in the future. As far as weddings go, they are masters at what they do!
Thank you for the opportunity to help plan your wedding Angie! We loved meeting your friends and family and are so happy for you and Kory!
Kerry and her team at Blue Sky Events made our daughter's wedding completely beautiful and personal and completely stress free which was my favorite part. They have really creative ideas which we never would have thought of and made sure we were on schedule for everything from the dress, flowers, lights, catering, pictures, cake, venue, bar, and all the rest. We appreciated and loved every detail. Kerry personally organized the rehearsal and made sure we were all comfortable with the order of the ceremony and who went where and when. They even made arrangements for kid activities and parking. Kerry's calm demeanor put us all at ease. We trust them completely.
You warm my heart with these wonderful words! Thank you, it was truly an honor to help your daughter!
Julia Holm with Blue Sky Events was amazing to work with! She really helped take all the stress away from the planning process. I used the partial planning package for my wedding and was very happy with it. Her calm, attentive, and professional approach helped keep everything and everyone running smoothly. I appreciated her attention to detail and her positive attitude during the planning. To me, our wedding was absolutely perfect and stress free, and I give majority of the credit to Julia.
Thank you Abby! We loved working with you and your family!
We were thrilled that Blue Sky Events was available for our wedding date. Chelsea and Kerry are very knowledgeable about Tahoe venues, vendors and the unpredictable weather patterns for the area and helped us set realistic expectations. They both gave excellent advice regarding the the pre-planning and day-of details, including where we should prioritize our time and what makes the biggest difference to our guests and to us. Chelsea was always easy to reach and very responsive. We had some last minute challenges (with weather of course) and Chelsea was 100% focused on working with our venue to make sure things happened the way we wanted, on time, and without adding any stress to us. Her patience and multi-tasking ability is impressive! She was there the entire night making sure we stayed on a timeline and was a great point person to all of our vendors and guests. If you plan on enjoying your night to the fullest and not worrying about details -big or small-I would say that hiring a coordinator is essential! I do not know how anyone does without! I would highly recommend Chelsea, Kerry and the rest of the Blue Sky team! I just want to re-live that night over and over! :)
Thank you Kendra! We are truly honored to receive this positive review especially since you have worked as a wedding coordinator at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe Resort. Your feedback is so appreciated! Congratulations on your beautiful marriage and best of luck to you both in the future!
Kerry, Julia and Melissa made my wedding planning stress free and easy. They offered the best, most reliable vendors and stayed well with in my budget. They always responded to my many emails and questions within hours. If I was panicking or having a stressful moment, they were ready to hop on a phone call to talk it through.
As far as wedding day coordination, you can't find anyone better. They treated it like it was their own sister or best friends wedding. I didn't have to worry about a single thing that day.
Many of my guests and bridal party commented on how well planned and managed the wedding weekend, ceremony & reception were, and while I'd like to take credit, I owe it all to Blue Sky Events.
Blue Sky Events was my first hire once I got engaged. I knew that I would need the help of a wedding coordinator to organize a wedding in Lake Tahoe remotely from Los Angeles. Speaking to Kerry on the phone was great. She made sure she understood my vision of the wedding and made suggestions on how we could make it a reality. We decided that the day-of coordination would work out best for my needs and I could not be happier with the service! Even though it is a day-of coordination, it is much more than that.
About 5 months before the wedding date my venue fell through and Blue Sky was there to the rescue. Kerry was very positive and helpful through the stressful process of finding a new venue that would fit 175 people! We were able to find a new venue, but one that would require a lot more rentals and vendors. Blue Sky was great about letting me know about the additional rentals I should be aware of and suggestions of people to contact.
About a month out from the wedding day they sent me a few very helpful forms to make sure I was on track for the day to go smoothly. Julia was there for me to go over everything and together we went over all the important information for the day. The last couple weeks before the wedding, though I have heard that they are stressful for the bride, were relatively relaxed because I had the comfort of knowing that we had coordinators that had everything under control.
The wedding day was a dream! Kerry and Julia were there to set up all of our decorations in the morning and make sure the caterers, DJ, band, photographer were all there ready to go. If anything went wrong I was not aware of it. Julia and Kerry were both there to keep things moving along and making sure that all the guests were having a great time.
Bottom line- they gave a Type-A kind of bride, the peace of mind to fully enjoy her wedding day and not be worried about the little details. Their coordination service is more than worth it!
