I have had the great pleasure to work with Sara over the past several years, not only as a colleague but also in a vendor/client relationship. Needless to say she is a stunning example of professionalism; her keen eye to every last detail ensures a smooth, successful event. Sara’s experience in the planning, management, design & execution of events is one of a kind; I’ve had the pleasure to watch her flawlessly execute client’s dreams time and time again. The ability to stay calm and work extremely well under pressure are just more attributes that add to Sara’s overall amazingness!

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.
