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

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!

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.

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.

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.

I have been working with Blue Sky Events for 8 years now. We met the first time at a wedding that we were hosting here at Tahoe Mountain Home. Although I've had coordinators work prior weddings with moderate to average execution. I was immediately impressed with Kerry's extremely organized approach, professional appearance, attention to the smallest detail and overall execution. It did not take me long to recognize that she was best and only choice for coordinating events at the property. After 8 years working together hosting 30 plus events I can honestly say I have not regretted my decision. Everyone who has had there wedding and stayed at Tahoe Mountain Home has expressed the same feelings and opinions that I have. Kerry and the business and also her great staff have continued to grow and evolve into what I think to be Tahoe's top choice for all types of event coordinating and especially weddings. Just give them a call, meet them for a site tour, or simply visit there website and you will see first hand...professionalism

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.

We had Kerry and Melissa help with our wedding this summer. We live in Portland and had a destination wedding in Lake Tahoe, were my family has a small cabin. They gave recommendations and helped patiently answer any questions during the whole planning process. The last week before the wedding they jumped into gear and basically coordinated everything the day of. This was totally invaluable to us. We were able to relax and enjoy our day without worrying about any of the vendors. If there was any small snag they jumped in to get more soda, talk to the dj about inappropriate music, and just meshed in with the crowd. Melissa was at our reception the whole time and everyone at the wedding came up to me to tell me how nice and wonderful she was. And it's true, this is where Blue Sky Events shines. They are laid back, down to earth, really great people. I felt totally comfortable with them every step of the way, which is exactly what I wanted for my wedding and very important to my husband and I. The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars on responsiveness is because they are so busy, they are out of the office basically every weekend Friday through Monday. My husband and I would mostly work on wedding planning on the weekends and find ourselves waiting until Tuesday or Wednesday to hear back from them. I understand this is the nature of the beast and am ultimately totally elated with Blue Sky services and would recommend them in a heart beat to any bride and groom looking for lovely, hard working, genuinely nice people to coordinate their wedding.

The best advice I can give anyone planning a wedding: hire a wedding planner. And if you're getting married around Lake Tahoe, hire Blue Sky. We hemmed and hawed about hiring a planner-- it seemed expensive, and we weren't sure we really needed it. But we were incredibly glad we ended up hiring Blue Sky!

Kerry and her team were amazing. They coordinated with all of our (many!) vendors, gave frank and often money-saving advice about what we really needed, and worried about all the details on our wedding day so that we didn't have to. And there were many details-- the wedding was at Ehrman Mansion in Tahoma, which is a gorgeous location, but everything has to be brought in, from chairs to silverware to a dance floor to lights, and even generators. Blue Sky made sure that everything happened on time (especially important, because we had a very tight timeline), and everything went smoothly.

They also excelled at crisis management, which I learned when they called my sister at 11am on our wedding day to tell us our original DJ had cancelled. But they had already found a replacement who agreed to work for the same price as the original, and made the first DJ promise to refund the deposit we'd put down. By the time we even knew there was a problem, it had already been solved-- and that alone would have made it worth hiring Blue Sky.

Hiring a planner is not cheap, but Blue Sky was sensitive to our budgetary concerns, and helped us create our own package that included only the things we really needed help with. For us, that was rentals, transportation, and vendor coordination.

I really can't say enough good things about Blue Sky. Our wedding was beautiful and we were able to relax and really enjoy the day-- and a lot of that had to do with Kerry.

We worked with Kerry and her team for over 6 months in preparation of our wedding, and it was a great experience. We went with the full-service package as it was a destination wedding, and the value she provided exceeded our expectations. To accommodate our different schedules, we often Skype'd and emailed to stay in touch and move things forward. Her recommendations for venues and vendors in the South Lake Tahoe area were helpful and all of them did a good job. The first budget estimates from the vendors were usually above our limits, so we had to do some critical thinking on those.

Kerry was our main contact during the preparation, and we also met some of her assistants in the run-up to the wedding. On the day itself another coordinator, who we had met briefly before, was leading, together with the assistants. This led to some minor disconnects, but everything went smoothly and the feedback we received from the guests was very positive.

Overall, Blue Sky Events did a great job and we would go with them again for any event planning services.

Melissa Weir was the event coordinator for our wedding. She did an awesome job and made sure everything ran smoothly. We were very laid back about our wedding and she respected that but in a fun upbeat kind of way made sure everything was taken care of. I personally loved it when our ceremony & first set of photos were done she asked us " Now the most important question, what do you want to drink?" It just validated that she knew how to put us at ease while still making sure we had fun.
