Blue Sky Events is a Destination Management Company based in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. We design, plan, and manage destination weddings and events throughout Lake Tahoe, Northern California and Nevada.

Formed in Lake Tahoe almost a decade ago, we have worked with clients from all over the world. Through the leverage of technology and proven systems, we help to close the distance between Lake Tahoe and our client’s home residence.

When considering Destination Management Companies, you will find that many can provide the basic necessities to organize your event, but they lack the passion and attention to detail to make your event outstanding.

Planning outstanding destination events is “what we do”, and did we mention “we love what we do”?

Our passion is what drives our goal of ensuring our clients receive only the best services and experiences an area has to offer, no matter the size of the event or budget.

Enthusiasm, organization, and professionalism are what you can expect from Blue Sky Events. Please visit www.yelp.com to see reviews from some our clients and vendors. We hope we have the opportunity to work with you in the future; have a great day! Read less

Melissa was our wedding planner at blue sky events and she was absolutely amazing. We are so happy we made the choice to go with blue sky. She was very accommodating to our needs and budget without being pushy or rude. I was overwhelmed with some of the planning but I had Melissa to take care of my worries. She made us feel comfortable and gave us all the answers we needed. We are locals of South Lake Tahoe and I can say we could have never planned this wedding without her help. She was extremely professional but personable at the same time. All of their vendor relationships are solid and accommodated every need that we wanted to accomplish for our wedding. Our wedding day was complete perfection and we could not have asked for a better day. With thanks to Melissa at Blue Sky Events!

Kerry from Blue Sky Events was such a pleasure to work with. My husband and I had a lot of different ideas and were very non traditional with our wedding visions and Kerry worked hard to bring our ideas to life. She even added some creative ideas of her own that we absolutely loved. Thank you again Kerry!!

I cannot say enough to recommend Kerry and Melissa at Blue Sky Events--they are just simply fantastic. I hired them as my day-of coordinators, and they did that and so much more! For a long review of Blue Sky, check out this yelp review (Wedding Wire has a character limit): http://www.yelp.com/biz/blue-sky-event-and-destination-management-stateline?hrid=tN7QBbKAazW3zj1UZHG_zw

But for a shorter version, here is a list of the amazingnesses of Blue Sky:
1. Far out pre-wedding recommendations and guidance: I didn't want a full-service planner, but I did need a lot of help figuring out where to start when choosing vendors--Kerry and Melissa's recommendations were spot on and so helpful when planning a wedding from 4 hours away!
2. 2 months before the wedding planning and vendor management: 8 weeks before the wedding date, Melissa took over all of my contracts and fixed all my newbie mistakes--the right numbers, schedules, prices, etc--all taken care of.
3. Wedding coordination: The wedding went off without a hitch--and I didn't lift a finger. Not one finger the entire day. All I had to do was tell them what I wanted, hide in a room for 6 hours getting pretty, and my wedding happened exactly the way I had always hoped it would. AMAZING. There were more than a few unexpected challenges that Kerry dealt with along the way, and she did so without making me feel stressed out for a moment! :)

I cannot imagine getting through this process without Kerry and Melissa, and recommend them to anyone getting married in the Tahoe area!!

Being from the area originally, I thought planning would be a breeze; however, I quickly found out I needed help and lots of it! From the start, the staff at Blue Sky was accommodating to all my needs. Even though I wanted a small, no-frills ceremony, I never realized how much work goes behind it.

Kerry Hawk assisted with the pre-planning stage, and offered suggestions but was never pushy with unneeded expenses. She was thoughtful, kind, responded promptly to all my emails, and I found her very trustworthy. She set up a contract specific to my needs which was straight-forward with pricing and payment was a breeze. I felt she picked up on my personality from the start and I didn't feel I was just another client. Even the vendors she recommended for hair/make-up (Studio 89 - Alex) and photography (Indidgo Photography - Brandi) were amazing, super friendly, and relaxed, which suited us perfectly.

Melissa Weir was my contact the week of the wedding and the transition was seamless. Even with last minute requests, Melissa was quick to respond. Every detail was planned, communicated clearly and I was glad I could just sit back and go with the flow.

Bottom line, Blue Sky made our wedding exactly that - it was OUR wedding and their planning made it perfect for OUR day. I can't thank them enough!

Kerry is unbelievably good at what she does. My now husband and I are two people who never thought we'd get married until we found each other, so neither of us had any clue how to go about planning a wedding. A wedding planner was a must.

We spoke to several different coordinators from the area. A couple of them were out of our price range and handled mainly high end weddings. There was one who was the cheapest, but for that price we got an extremely "itemized" contract. She actually had written out how many phone calls with her we were allowed to have, along with a lot of other stipulations that turned us off.

Kerry was exactly what we needed - a reasonable fee and true "full service". She was also so nice and professional during our consultation.

Over the next year and a half she proved over and over that we had made the right decision. She found us the perfect venue and some of the best vendors we could have hoped to work with. She coordinated every possible detail and remembered all the things we never would have thought of. She took two people who were completely hopeless with all things wedding-related and walked us through the process with patience and expertise. All of the decisions were still our own, and when the big day finally came, we looked in wonder as all of those decisions finally came together. The day that we had spent so much time designing was beautiful and perfect, and everything we wanted.

And as amazing as Kerry was during the planning process...she absolutely shined on the day itself. She thought of EVERYTHING that could possibly come up and planned for all of it. She even had white safety pins to use when the bustle on my dress failed. Every possible detail was taken care of and there was nothing for us to do but enjoy the day. Many of our family and friends told us how fantastic she was, and we wholeheartedly agreed. Our wedding will always be one of the most special days of our lives, and we owe it all to Kerry.

So, I was a guy who never thought I would get married, something my wife & I shared. So, when we found each other and got engaged, we both had thoughts on what we might like, and agreed we should plan it together. However, as a couple who never thought they would ever get married, and planning a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe as a bonus, we knew going into it that we needed a wedding coordinator. Kerry Hawk and her team from BlueSky Events, was nothing short of AMAZING!

First, her contract is simple and straightforward, a flat fee for her services depending on the level of service you want (we chose the full package) – unlike the other coordinators we spoke to who were very ‘line item’ – where they would charge per call or email, or would do this but not that.

Then, over the next year and a half, she patiently guided us through a process where we had to balance a conservative budget (we were paying for it), but also wanted the wedding to be very personalized and ‘us’. She helped us from everything to colors and linens choices to wedding etiquette. She even helped us find a custom made Chuppah when all we could say to the ones that we were seeing were, ‘something isn’t quite right’.

The rehearsal the day prior was quick and efficient. On the day of, she effortlessly coordinated all the vendors, and NOT ONE item fell through the cracks! Not one! Every simple touch we asked for (and we had a few) was made and carried out, not only adding to how impressed we were with her, but which made the wedding ‘us’. Were they necessary, no – were they appreciated and made the day that much more special? – Absolutely!

By the end of the evening, my entire family (existing and new-in-laws) knew her by name and loved her. At the reception, multiple guests came up to me and not only commented on how beautiful the wedding was, but said how our wedding was the one and only wedding they’d all been too, where not one thing went wrong.

Very true - and all b/c of Kerry.

We are SO SO SO glad we chose Blue Sky Events to coordinate my daughter's wedding at Thunderbird Lodge. Kerry and her staff did an amazing job. We worked with Kerry for 8 months before the wedding and she was so helpful throughout the whole planning process. Her team was responsive, great on email and sent us lots of planning photos, very professional, and timely. When Kerry said she would get it done - we could count on her to do it!! Besides how organized she was, she has a delightful personality and a good sense of humor. I would highly recommend Blue Sky Events to anyone!

Melissa Weir has been an absolute lifesaver throughout the planning of our wedding at Heavenly in Tahoe. She and Kerry completely understood our vision for the wedding and executed it flawlessly. We received so many compliments from our guests that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. Melissa was attentive, supportive, and readily available throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend them to any out of town or local bride planning a wedding in the Tahoe area. The table settings, floral arrangements and ceremony decor was of high quality and masterfully put together. Love these gals!

Kerry Hawk, who is Blue Sky Events, and her assistant, Melissa Weir, expertly guided us through our wedding planning experience and gave us a beautiful wedding ceremony and a perfect, fun reception.
We live in Texas, but after vacationing in Reno and Lake Tahoe, we wanted a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe. Not knowing the area, we knew we needed a wedding planner. We interviewed several planners in the area. After talking with Kerry and receiving an unsolicited and very strong referral, Kerry was for us.
She supplied us with a time management calendar, and a budget management system. She provided us with vendors, always giving us several to talk with. She would give her personal recommendations, only when we specifically requested this information. She scheduled a conference call with us once per month for 6 months and 1 time per week in the month immediately preceding the wedding. This call was often late in her day, so that the timing was convenient to our schedule—we were in a different time zone. She was always available to us any other time we telephoned, and we corresponded by frequent e-mail. Kerry met with us personally twice during our months of planning and she coordinated appointments with our vendors, so that final decisions were easy. Kerry shared her creativity with us—she executed a circular seating arrangement for our ceremony, and made it fit on the limited lawn area available to us at our wedding venue, Edgewood Tahoe.
She was never ruffled or angry when we were NOT early meeting her planning calendar, and she always had our back when last minute details finally got to #1 on the planning list.
Kerry is an expert professional planner and a creative thinker; she can answer all questions from contracts to music and flowers. Kerry became a good friend. I know that she is THE CHOICE in wedding and event planning in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area.
