Krisy Thomas

Owner & Master Certified Wedding Planner

I am Krisy Parker Thomas, a Master Certified Wedding Planner through The Bridal Society, the nation’s leading wedding planning certification program. I was also named 2016 Wedding Planner of the Year. I am extremely passionate about celebrating all of life’s events, especially weddings! I dedicate myself to each and every one of my clients. I genuinely want you to focus on the joy of getting married.

As your wedding planner, I consider YOU to be my number one priority—not the venue or your other vendors. I am more than happy to mediate any issues you may have with your vendors, and I promise to be honest with you throughout the process. Ensuring that you are taken care of and that your needs and expectations are met is something that I take very seriously, and I pride myself in working with my clients to make sure that both the wedding planning process AND the wedding day are incredible, memorable experiences.

Not only am I a wedding planner, but I am also an educator for the wedding industry! I serve as co-instructor for The Bridal Society, where I train and teach other wedding planners from across the country and all over the world. Community over competition isn’t just a motto to me, but something I truly live by.

Among many other things, I love champagne, all things that sparkle, The Golden Girls, spending time with family, Dr Pepper, and being inspired by the people I surround myself with. I am blessed with a loving husband, the sweetest rescue dog, and quite possibly the cutest boys in the world, Jameson and Cortland! I am truly grateful that you stopped by Southern Sparkle Wedding & Event Planning, and I look forward to helping you plan your big day!
