ABOUT FAMILY AFFAIR KEY WEST
Let our family take care of your family affair!
Family Affair Event and Wedding Planning ~ started by with two sisters and their husbands who found themselves in the wedding industry in Key West and really enjoyed working together. When we added Planning to 25 combined years of wedding experience we started to add other specialties – so new Key West “family” members were added – chosen for the same dedication and fun approach to weddings. Just like any family we are a cast of characters all with different personalities, different shapes and sizes, different talents and together we make up a team that will do everything they can to make your day perfect.
You awake on your wedding day with such anticipation of a perfect day – one of the ways that you can guarantee this, is when you have a team of specialist that are working together seamlessly – everything that needs to take place for a perfect day will happen in the background without your knowing – but the better the team the better your day – so whether real family members or our honorary family member – you will find the team that WILL make your day as beautiful as our Key West sunsets. We have fun together and it shows – when you look around you will see smiles. Our family now includes a group of planners, photographers, videographers, DJ’s, officiates, floral design experts, hair/make up, and catering working together.
SO If you are looking for a stress free, exciting and fun filled wedding celebration – look no further. You start by hiring us as your Day of or Full Service Planner – then you continue to build your day your way. We will assist you from the first day when you sign the contract by creating your wedding day time line, then can have vendors contact you directly so you don’t have to do the research, and after that we provide conference calls every 60 days throughout til the day you arrive on this beautiful and unique tropical island. Once you arrive, we will guide you through till the end of your celebration! If you chose the Full Service Planning option, we will assist you in every aspect of your full wedding celebration and you have total access to us as needed. So no matter what size your event or how traditional or unique we are here to assist.
Bernadette McCall, Executive Planner and her team are waiting to assist you in every way.
Bernedette, John and your entire staff—I cannot begin to thank you for everything you have done for us and made possible. Everything was perfect and our guests had the time of their lives.

We are so fortunate to have worked with you. To anyone thinking of a key west wedding Family Affair is 100% recommended as they will see your every need is met and any of your wedding wishes and visions will come true. We love you guys. THANK YOU!!!!
Dearest Bernadette, John, Sam and the entire Family Affair team, I’m sorry it took me a few days to be able to collect my thoughts, but I wanted to express clearly how amazing your entire team was on our wedding day. Steve and I could not have had a more perfect day and that is all because of you. From the very first day you made this entire experience enjoyable, fun, and absolutely stress-free. You were there for us through every decision making process, helping us make the best choices for a wedding that we could only imagine. You were able to take our ideas and make them a beautiful reality. You ensured us thoughout our year of planning that we were in great hands and you were absolutely right! I can’t image anyone else doing a better job! And Bernadette, whatever you have done to get in the good graces of the weather gods, KEEP DOING IT! You promised me the day of the wedding that rain wouldn’t keep us from having the most perfect day and you were right! The sun shower that came in that day landed right between our amazing photo tour around town with John and ended at 5pm on the dot just in time for family pics and the ceremony! And when the torrential thunder storm came through, your team, especially Sam and Sanaris, made sure that it didn’t stop a minute of the fun! So thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for a picture perfect wedding day! We owe it all to you and your team. Love, Chrissy and Steve Flite
John, Bernadette, Joanna, and Jim are truly amazing! They really care about making your day magical. They pay attention to ever detail and love what they do! I couldn't have asked for a better team to document our special day! Thank you all a million times! You guys honestly rock and we look forward to coming back and meeting up with you all!
I cannot say enough about how amazing Bernadette McCall and her husband John were as my photographers AND as my Day of Service Planner was for my wedding day. The combination was out of this world. As an out-of-town bride, I was very nervous. I personally have never been to Key West and prior to connecting with Bernadette, I had to rely on photos and online reviews to aid me in my wedding planning. As soon as I spoke to Bernadette on the phone, I knew I struck gold. She helped put my nerves at ease and shared such great ideas and perspectives that made me more and more confident with each wedding decision I made – even though I was over 1,400 miles away. From day number one Bernadette, walked me through the planning process to help ensure I was on track with my planning. We touched based ever couple weeks by phone and multiple times a week via email. She answered all of my questions timely and ALWAYS had photos she sent to give me a visual. Bernadette knows Key West very well and her eye for design and her ability to interpret the light has made for the most breathtaking photos and décor. Bernadette is so friendly and thoughtful. So much care and attention to detail went into each and every moment of the night. Bernadette knew I was on a tight budget but still was able to give me such elegance and glam. Bernadette took the time to get to know me and what I needed and was easily able to adapt to ensure that I was comfortable and happy. Every expectation that I ever imagined for my special day was far beyond exceeded. It has been a few weeks since the wedding and my husband, his family, and my family, are still raving about how flawless the day was and how amazing the photos turned out. I just can’t say enough. I still think back over all the moments and am so beyond happy.
True wedding experts!! Bernadette and Joanna did a fantastic job coordinating my wedding day at Southernmost Beach Resort. We had regular phone calls leading up to the big day which helped ease my stress. I was able to ship them my decorations and they were displayed beautifully as planned. The day was picture perfect. Everything went smoothly, and my guests were very impressed. I highly recommend working with these ladies! 🙂
Bernadette and team, Cody and I can’t say thank you enough for the perfect wedding day. I never imagined myself getting married at eight months pregnant, but you somehow still managed to make the day live up to and even exceed my dreams. We had countless comments from guests that it was the “best destination wedding they have ever been to,” the hors d oeuvres were “the best they had ever had,” the key lime cupcakes were “amazing, and wedding cake is never amazing.” One of my friends knew that Cody and I had paid for the wedding ourselves, so she said she just had to ask how much we spent. She was shocked that the wedding day was as beautiful and perfect as it was while staying within our budget. Her shock quickly turned to anger when she revealed what she had spent on her own wedding day which, by her own words, didn’t even come close to the incredible experience you put together for our guests and ourselves. The Family Affair team created priceless memories for Cody and I and will forever be a part of our love story. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did and treating us with the quality and care that is only associated with family. With love and gratitude, Cody and Becca Rivers
We were very fortunate to have found Bernadette McCall of Family Affair. Our daughter had a destination wedding this November in Key West. Bernadette's advice and guidance was invaluable. When planning this type of wedding, its important to have someone whose recommendations you can trust. Her help with the venue, photographer, DJ and everything else in between was spot on. Her efforts to keep within our budget were also greatly appreciated. The day before the wedding my husband became sick and spent the night in the hospital. Both Bernadette and her husband John became involved and helped us throughout the whole ordeal taking care of everything they could to allow my husband to walk our daughter down the aisle. We will never forget all they did for us that day. From start to finish Bernadette handled the wedding perfectly and with the utmost professionalism. We are so grateful to her and all of the Family Affair team for the time and hard work they put into making that special day so memorable for us. I highly recommend Family Affair for your event. They are the best !!
My husband and I got married May 2018 and what a memory and a blast it was! From the second I spoke to Bernadette as our planner, I knew she was our girl! Bernadette along with her assistant, John (fun photographer, her husband), Joanna (hysterical videographer, her sister), and Jim (incredibly talented DJ, her brother-in-law and Joanna's husband) from Family Affair - we knew that was our Dream Team. The group kept everything fun while maintaining organization from almost 2,000 miles away with me on day one. Not only did they keep my head on my shoulders with planning and perfect advice, but Family Affair Wedding and Event planning put the Dream Team together as Bernadette as my planner. Family Affair really means family affair to this incredible group of people. Bernadette was not only a planner in this process, but an honest friend. I will never forget this group letting Rob and I enter our wedding venue before any other person could see it - just the two of us - and we not only saw the first look beauty of it all, but we danced to our song by ourselves for an unforgettable private moment. What a surprise, I was floating on my own two feet in the moment of time. Family Affair let us have our humorous lifestyle throughout our event, whether it was from our crazy music choices, costume changes of guests and groom, cowboy hats during video shoots, goofy photos for each other to see one day, and of course the unconditional compassion for the love of our pup who suddenly passed a month before our wedding and was supposed to be our ring bearer. Bernadette as our planner and her Dream Team are an all around wonderful, timely, organized, loving group of people. They were by our side every second we needed them at our event. If I could give over 5 stars, I totally would! Hands down, the best!
I could not imagine my wedding day with out Bernadette and her team. They were amazing and so nice. I was nervous at first about planning everything by pictures and not seeing it in person first but everything was even more amazing than I imagined. She made everything so easy. Jackie was also amazing and super friendly. They constantly checked on me and made sure everything was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing
Family Affair were great to work with, Bernadette and her team were fantastic. Kayla and Jennifer were the day of coordinators and they were wonderful to work with.

They will make your wedding planning so much easier. they know all the first class vendors and the wedding turned out to be wonderful!!!
