Gary & Grace

Jacob & Tera

Keely is absolutely amazing!! Very professional, caring and completely on point with every single detail!! I 100% recommend Key Events!


Keely is very professional, personable, courteous, communicative and honest. Her attention to detail will astound you! I highly recommend Keely and Key Events!

Mark & Elizabeth

If I could rate more than 5 stars, I would! Keely is the most organized, composed and collected Event/Wedding Planner and Day of Coordinator I could ever asked for. I got to watch her under pressure at least 3 times, one of which was for my own wedding. She is great with communication and taking care of everything so that you dont have to! She answered all of my wedding questions leading up to big day and if she didnt know the answer, she would look into it herself and reached out to vendors if I was unable to contact them. To which, she was able to work her magic and get us what we needed!

Josh & Lynda

Keely was amazing!! We found her with about a month left to our wedding because we had a issue with the venue and she did not disappoint. We were stressed out and she took care of everything. She went above and beyond with everything. She made sure everything we wanted was done. We will definitely recommend her to our friends. Thank you again. It was a pleasure working with you.

Allan & Stacey

She is very was very knowledgeable of the area and had a list of top vendors since I was not from the area (DJ, florist, wedding cakes, hair & make up, places to stay photographer, videographer, etc). She worked directly with the venue, Lake Tahoe Golf Course to make sure my wedding was perfect. I do not live in the area, so we had very detailed phone calls and check lists of what needed to be done. We even had a surprise snow storm in late April which turned my outdoor wedding into an indoor wedding. Keely was on top of getting all the necessary changes made. I would not have changed anything. Keely is professional, well coordinated and very detailed. I highly recommend Keely and Key Events! She is absolutely amazing!

D & J

Keely is the best wedding planner for us. She helped us out from A-Z and always available when we needed her. Everything was perfect and beautifully done on the wedding day. We were so glad we had her as our wedding planner. Highly recommended Keely if you want to have Lake Tahoe as your wedding destination.

Paul & Andraya

Keely is 10/10 the best choice we made for our wedding! She is such a smooth operator, keeps everything on time and on track, and doesn't bat an eye at any changes. As someone who never romanticized my wedding and had no idea where to begin, Keely was invaluable in pulling off our day. She has so much experience, wisdom, and true excitement for her work. I can't sing her praises enough - and neither can my maid of honor and family! She made the day enjoyable for everyone. She has a vast network in Northern Nevada she can tap into and an eye for detail you'll be grateful to have!

Omar & Riley

Keely was amazing to work with. We had to plan my nieces wedding last minute due to a death in the family and change of plans. Within 2-3 weeks with Keelys help we secured all the vendors, her recommended vendors gave amazing service. I am in the customer service industry and was extremely impressed with her organization and follow up. I highly recommend Key Events Wedding planning, they give top notch service and were a pleasure to work with!

Lachlan & Raquel

Keely is a 100/10. And yes I mean one hundred out of ten. She gave us her full attention the entire 6-8 months leading up to the wedding. We had our wedding at Valhalla, which she knew inside and out. She was very experienced, organized, but most importantly was she was always available and never missed a single thing.

David & Abby

As a bride, I did not think or worry about one detail of the day, Keely handled it all. From rain to a wedding crasher, Keely made sure we were not stressed or distracted from every moment of our evening. Not only did Keely set up our reception perfectly (and better than we pictured), she also tore down our whole ceremony and reception set up, hand delivered cards and gifts to our room, and returned the rental pieces back to our florist and dessert source. Truly she handled everything. I cannot tell you enough that you should book Keely's services - you'll be so very happy you did!

Aaron & Ashley

Keely was absolutely amazing! As a bride she made it so easy for me to plan my big day. All my vendors came together with her recommendations and they all were absolutely amazing. Our day was truly a dream and it’s all because Keely made sure everything was where it was suppose to be. I truly enjoyed and felt so at peace throughout my whole wedding day. Keely has the gift to make anything work for your wedding and I highly recommend her

Jeff & Stephanie

There simply are not enough positive words to describe what kind of an experience using Key Events was … but I will warn you that if you go with someone else, you’ll have regrets. Keely is in a word a “Lifesaver!” Her endless kindness, patience, grace, talent, organization, and sheer energy will see you through the daunting experience of getting married AND she will bring so much more joy to your day that you’ll notice afterwards but you better believe your guests will notice immediately!! We had a Winter Wonderland wedding in the snowiest season of December on Lake Tahoe and gosh, did we have some challenges - but the evening went along seamlessly.

Kevin & Michelle

When looking for a wedding coordinator, my husband and I had a very specific vision that not every coordinator could accomplish: all black/purple/copper colors with a boho, vintage vibe. When we came across Keely's social media account and saw the kind of events she helps coordinates, we knew that she was the right choice. When we got off our first meeting with Keely, my husband and I instantly knew without any hesitation she was our girl for the job. Keely is also very personable, we have so many similar personality traits and we just clicked as a team. Throughout the next 12 months, she helped guide us in choosing the right vendors for our venue at Valhalla. Keely is not afraid to give honest suggestions or guidance to ensure our day could be as perfect as possible.

Chris & Kelly

Keely is amazing! We loved working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone for their wedding/event. She is prompt with responses, kind and easy to work with. Our entire experience from the beginning to end was great! You will not be disappointed when working with Keely and her team 🙂

Colin & Cera

Keely was incredible! She was recommended through our wedding venue and I'm so glad we found her. Having a wedding coordinator is a must!!! I felt way more relaxed on my wedding day knowing Keely would handle things. She was communicative before hand, attentive during and professional throughout! Can't recommend her enough 🙂

Karie MacLeod

Keely is as professional as they come! She runs her business but is also the first to jump in when another planner needs a professional, reliable team member. She shows up ready and prepared for each event which brings such peace and calmness to clients. She is creative and is such a great Wedding and event Planner. Highly recommend her for Lake Tahoe, Reno, and the Carson Valley!

Michael & Claribel

Keely and her partner were soooo amazing!!!!They went above and beyond for our wedding when the venue did not want to work with us. Keely worked with what they allowed us and made such a beautiful and memorable wedding. My husband and I couldn't have done it without Key events helping us every step of the way!!!!! They took the time to make my vision come to life and coordinate every last detail. The stress they took off my shoulders as a bride made my mind at ease. I wouldn't recommend any other wedding planner than Key Events.💙💙

Tracy Schroeder

Keely is a true professional. I own a multi-op DJ company and my team really enjoys working with Keely and her team. Honestly, I wish every wedding would hire a professional planner because it makes the event go smoothly. Keely and her team are very organized and they keep everyone on track without feeling rushed.

Elizabeth Blackley

I’ve had the pleasure of working on Key Events team. I really loved helping bring the vision her and her client had put together. The eye for detail with a blank slate was incredible to watch come to life. It is one of my 2023 favorite weddings. Keely truly is an amazing Planner and woman.
