About Us



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.

  • review rating 5  The Family Affair was simply incredible. I had always heard wedding days can be stressful, but they took the stress out of everything on our day. They were organized, professional, kind, paid attention to detail, knew what we wanted without us having to ask, and genuinely cared about me and my husband. Everything was great: the DJ knew exactly how to get everybody dancing, the photos and video were beautiful, and the planning was flawless. It was truly the best day of our life and we could not have done it without them! If you're getting married in the Key West, use the Family Affair!

  • review rating 5  Bernadette and John made our wedding day perfect! We got married last week at the Southernmost Beach Resort and they made our wedding day go smoothly. Planning from NJ I was nervous and worried because I've never been to Key West before. Although I was stressed at times, Bernadette was always positive. I could not be happier with the way everything turned out.. if anything it was even better than I imagined. We already cannot wait to go back to Key West!! Thank you Bernadette and John �

  • review rating 5  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

  • review rating 5  Wow! That is the first word that comes to mind when I think about my experience with the Family Affair Team. Bernadette, Samyra, Mel, and every member of the team were amazing. My only regret is not hiring them sooner! As a bride planning a destination wedding, they were the key to staying sane. I have been to the Keys many times, and thought I could do it without a coordinator; I was wrong. The day turned out so beautiful and went so well. No one in my family had to set anything up the day of or before the wedding, Family Affair coordinated everything with the clean up, they got the cake set up, they set up decorations and items I brought from home. They took my vision and made it a reality. They knew the vendors and were able to speak with them about our event and get the details worked out. From my first conversation with Bernadette I was so more at ease planning the wedding. They know the area and they know how to make an event go amazing. They are wonderful. I would not have changed a thing about my wedding day, and they made it possible. I want to have another wedding, just so I can see how beautiful they would make the next one!

  • review rating 5  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!

  • review rating 5  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 !!

  • review rating 5  We had the pleasure of working with Mel & Kay while planning and preparing for our wedding day. They were wonderful - very professional. They took the time to listen to our wishes and helped us pull all our thoughts together keeping the process stress free along the way. On the wedding day, everything was perfect. They coordinated with the venue and all the vendors we had contracted with, it was a seamless production. They took such care of all our personal items, setting them up and returning them to our guest room at the end of the reception. We didn't have to think about any details that day, they handled everything and we were able to enjoy every minute of our day with our friends and famiy. Mel & Kay (and the whole Family Affair team), I Cannot thank you enough! THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!

  • review rating 5  Absolutely WONDERFUL company! We had a wonderful experience! Everything went very well and ran extremely smoothly. We had a fabulous day and our guests thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the wedding. Bernadette and the Family Affair wedding planning crew were so helpful, organized and worked so hard to make our wedding such a special and meaningful day. Being from out of town, we especially appreciated having a wedding planner who was knowledgeable about all things Key West! I cannot recommend Family Affair highly enough! We were immensely pleased with our wedding experience with this company.
