Meet the Team

Amberley Adams-Thomas
Owner & Lead Designer

Howdy! I am Amberley Adams-Thomas, the proud owner of Blue Events & Co. I was born with a passion for organizing and executing events. 

I moved to Austin from La Porte, TX in 2011. Two years later, I completed my AAS in Hospitality Management specializing in Meeting and Events at Austin Community College.

Before creating my first company, Blue Boot Events, I worked on my education and tried to wear every hat possible in the industry. My background is in wedding planning, nonprofit planning, conventions, restaurants, hotels, venues, event rentals, photography, and even wedding dresses. Blue Events & Co. is my life’s calling. It has taken 13-years of experience to build this company and I could not be more proud of how far my team and I have come.

I've been happily married to my amazing and supportive husband for 7-years. We have two energetic 6-year old boys that fill our hearts with love and laughter every day. Being an introvert working in an extrovert's world, I like to decompress by spending quality time with my boys, reading a good book on my patio, or tending to my garden and animals at our mini-farm.
