I could not be more grateful to have had Sara Beveridge and Golden Poppy Events as my coordinator for my wedding!

From the first time I met with Sara, I knew we had made the right decision. She asked all the right questions and quickly began working on my timeline, one of the most important things you will have the day of your wedding. She brought things to my attention that I hadn’t thought of, was available to offer her expertise any time I had a question, and was

always honest with me. I cannot explain how much of my stress was relieved in the weeks and days leading up to my wedding because of Sara. Ninety percent of my guests were from out of town and while I was busy welcoming and entertaining relatives, Sara was crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s.

The day before our wedding, Sara flawlessly orchestrated our rehearsal so that everyone in my bridal party would know exactly what to do and where to be the following day. On my wedding day, Sara and her assistant Jenny were phenomenal!

I could go on. But in an attempt to be (somewhat) brief, I will close with this: having an excellent coordinator is just as important as having an excellent venue, florist or photographer. You really need someone to hold it all together and relieve some of the stresses of planning so you can enjoy your wedding. I will forever be grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Sara and Golden Poppy Events for helping with my dream wedding and letting me enjoy it!

Hiring Sara to be our wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She kept us sane, organized and focused but most of all, she helped us achieve one of the most memorable (and flawless) days of our lives together. Sara has the perfect personality for the work that she does. It’s true what some people say, weddings are stressful, but throughout the entire process, Sara stayed cool, calm, collected. Her problem solver mentality coupled with her sincerity makes her the perfect planner to have on such an important day.

We had a specific vision for our big day, and Sara brought that vision to life through creative design, imagination and strategic budgeting. We are so grateful for Sara’s consummate professionalism throughout this process. When anybody asks me about the value of a wedding planner, I cannot say enough amazing things about Sara. If you’re considering having her plan your wedding, don’t even think twice: do yourself a favor, and trust Sara to plan, organize and create. You will be deeply satisfied and your big day will go off without hitch!

The bottom line is, we HIGHLY recommend Sara for planning a wedding or any other important event – truly unforgettable!

I am very excited to hear that Sara is starting her own Event Planning Company because she is a true natural! Sara is so knowledgeable, experienced and well-connected. I worked side by side with Sara for years executing jaw-dropping events at Montage Beverly Hills. Sara has always been so calm during the planning and execution of these events and never stops smiling, even in the most stressful situations. She is a ball of positive energy who is extremely well-organized. As a colleague of hers, I couldn't imagine a better person to count on.
