Michelle Garibay Events
Michelle Garibay Events was great!!!! My wedding in Hawaii was perfect, everything I dreamed about! Throughout the planning process, Michelle was great, creative, timely in her email responses, professional etc. I definitley recommend Michelle Garibay Events.
Michelle and her amazing team at Blue Sky Productions were a dream to work with every step of the planning process.
When we first thought of hiring a wedding planner we debated for a long time if it was really worth the cost. I am happy to say that her fee was well worth it and more!
Michelle's responsiveness was top notch and she made me feel as though I was her only client, as my constant emails had replies waiting for me within minutes.
I was also a bit hesitant at first when I found out that Michelle wasn't going to be the day of the wedding planner (she was so great I couldn’t imagine anyone else being there) but she put me in the best hands ever when she set us up with Alicia for our wedding day coordinator.
Alicia was so sweet and made the wedding day flow so smoothly. All of my wedding party raved about her professionalism and her warm and friendly demeanour.
Both Michelle and Alicia were extremely flexible as well, I had 3 unexpected guests surprise us for our wedding day and Michelle and Alicia were so helpful they had it all arranged without my knowledge.
I would recommend Michelle and her company to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner with the best vendor contacts Hawaii has to offer, responds immediately to even your silliest questions, offers great advice, and makes your wedding day flaw free and the greatest day of your life.
You will not regret your decision hiring this company!
Many Mahalo Michelle & Alicia

To say that my husband and I were satisfied with the service that Blue Sky Productions provided us for our North Shore Hawaii wedding would be a tremendous understatement. We were absolutely blown away by how amazingly attentive our coordinator, Alicia, was and how smoothly our entire wedding day ran as a result. I feel like its so cliché for a bride to describe her wedding as perfect, but I can't help but feel that way; the way everything came together truly took my breath away.
In the months leading up to the wedding Michelle Garibay took us through the potentially stressful planning process in a way that made it fun and enjoyable. Doing all of the planning from our home in Canada seemed way too daunting a task to undertake ourselves and once we staring working with Michelle, all the anxiety and stress gave way to excitement and anticipation. All of the vendors that Michelle recommended were amazing and went above and beyond any expectations that we had. The catering was absolutely delicious and the servers and bartender were exceptional! I kept hearing over and over from all the guests how good the service was.
Another comment that I kept hearing was how incredible the ukulele player was! That was just one of many elements that we didn't consider until we saw starting working with Michelle and Blue Sky Productions and it was one of our favourite parts.
I could go on and on about all the times I was so impressed and thankful throughout the day and night, but then this review would be a novel! So I'll finish by saying that I wish Alicia and Michelle could spend every day with me, organizing my life and making me feel good the way that they did leading up to and during our wedding. One moment during dinner, I looked over and saw Alicia entertaining our friend's baby so that the parent could enjoy their dinner and I heard numerous stories all night long about how she was making everyone's evening enjoyable and stress-free. Words cannot fully express how grateful we are that she was there and how wonderfully she handled the whole event. There was not one moment of the entire day or evening where I was stressed or even concerned about the logistics, vendors, timeline or anything! And that is solely because of Alicia, Michelle and the entire Blue Sky Productions team.
Although it was never spoken out loud, I know that our decision to hire a wedding planner for our wedding came across as a bit extravagant to some members of our family....I can tell you now, that I bet we won't go to another wedding in our family that doesn't have a wedding planner!!! And if any of them happen to be in California or Hawaii, you can bet we’ll be calling Blue Sky Productions!
The Most Thankful Bride & Groom
Kristal & Geordie Macleod
We got married this past December 11th, and Blue Sky Productions was our planner/coordinator/consultant.
Let me start by saying that if you’re looking for a wedding coordinator who is a pushover, you’re looking in the wrong place, because Michelle Garibay is not that. And I think that’s important in her line of work because her conviction in standing behind what she recommends demonstrates how much she believes in what she’s telling you. Anybody can make recommendations; Michelle stands by what she recommends! That’s not to say that Michelle is “pushy,” because she isn’t. She always defers to the client on the final decision. But when she makes recommendations, it’s usually for a good reason, and that reason is determined by her many years and many weddings of experience! That level of experience and expertise is what you get with Blue Sky Productions!
So if you’re looking for a coordinator who demonstrates the utmost professionalism, is willing to stick her neck out there and tell you how it is, and is also willing to stick her neck out there and tell the vendors how it is ON YOUR BEHALF, then you’ve come to the right place. Michelle has an impeccable reputation in the “wedding” community, and it is very well deserved. She ONLY works with quality vendors; she has a vast network of contacts; she works within the constraints of your budget; she is very responsive; she pays close attention to detail; and she has an amazing ability to visualize ideas and bring concepts into reality.
With all of that said, Michelle has also assembled a great team around her. Although Michelle did all of our planning and consultation beforehand, our day-of coordinator was Blue Sky Production’s Senior Coordinator, Jessica. Quite plainly speaking, Jessica was outstanding! That’s a credit to Michelle and her ability to mentor along and retain such quality talent on her team. That’s also a credit to the effort that both Michelle and Jessica put forth in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding! Jessica took charge of the entire day from beginning to end! If Jessica is your coordinator, you are in great hands! I really foresee Jessica as one of the young, up-and-coming talents, and I foresee her making a big splash in this community and this industry for years to come! She’s that good! And again – that’s a credit to Blue Sky Productions, as a whole, which from our experience with both Michelle and Jessica, is comprised only of TOP NOTCH TALENT!
As stated in a previous review, I encourage you to interview your potential wedding planners/coordinators to make sure that 1) they’re qualified, and 2) they’re a fit for your specific needs and workstyles. We did interview around, which ultimately led us to Blue Sky Productions. Needless to say, that was our last of those interviews. After meeting with Michelle and Jessica, we were convinced that there was no need to look further, and we couldn’t be happier with the decision!
We would recommend Blue Sky Productions to any potential bride and groom, with the utmost confidence in their ability to exceed expectations!
I love working with you. Every wedding turned out amazing. Thanks for all of your great...
