What people are saying about us
"Talented and professional."
Sarah is talented and professional. Her bubbly warm personality is welcoming to everyone and she knows how to get things done. You won't be disappointed working with her!
“Incredibly organized, knowledgeable and friendly.”
I took Sarah with me for a tasting at a venue. As the bridesmaid of an out of town bride, I felt out of my depths. Her professional opinion and thoughtfulness was very helpful as well as the report she created for the bride and groom to be. She is incredibly organized, knowledgeable and friendly. I would absolutely recommend her.
“Sarah...was not stopped by any barriers.”
I had the pleasure of working with Sarah on a styled maternity portrait session. Sarah and I discussed briefly what I wanted to create, I must admit I wasn't 100% certain what the vision was. Despite my vagueness, Sarah proposed a few ideas and came up with the most romantic picnic setting for the session.
On the day of, Sarah brought to life the vision she had crafted and was not stopped by any barriers - she shoveled out a 8'x8' by 2' deep area so that we could set up! The set-up was beautiful and the session a great success.
“Sarah was a treat to work with."
This girl was on point. As someone in the industry I've done my fair share of shows. A DJ is part of the puzzle. Most people don't look at that as part of the event. This girl did. She went above and beyond for her client as well as helping me do my job by keeping me informed throughout the night. I was extremely impressed with how professional and well planned the night was. Every piece came together perfectly. What a show!! I would HIGHLY recommend her. I've been in the business for a long time. Seen some pros. She's now on that short list! Way to go. Look forward to working with you again!
“Amazing...quality of work”
Sarah went as a guest with my bridesmaid to a tasting event at my venue as I live out of town and needed a trusted opinion on the food. She put together an amazing spreadsheet of all the food options and her thoughts/opinions on everything. She wasn't paid to do so, and at the time I didn't even know she was an event planner. Yet she went out of her way to compile her thoughts, put them in a professionally done spreadsheet and have it sent to me. If this is the kind of work she does for someone who had not even hired her then I can not begin to imagine how amazing her quality of work will be for a client.
Thanks so much Sarah!
