Though we have grown, and our name has changed, our company still represents our 3-core values:
Top Notch Customer Service
Owner + Lead Planner: Amberley Adams-Thomas
"Howdy! I am Amberley Adams-Thomas, the proud owner of Blue Events & Co.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for organizing and executing events.
I started working with events in 2010. My heart has always belonged to Austin, TX; so in 2011 I made the move from La Porte, TX. 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 10-years of experience to build this company, and I could not be more proud of how far my team and I have come.
My daily titles are entrepreneur, wife, and mother. Our family grows and shrinks as we foster children when we are able. Being an introvert working in an extrovert's world, I enjoy to decompress with a good book in my hammock, or tending to my garden and animals at our farmhouse."
