    I was one of those brides who foolishly started planning thinking she could do everything by herself, and if something went wrong during the wedding, it would be okay because the wedding and reception are just formalities and being there is what mattered. Even though I stick by ... View more this, by the time only a month remained until the wedding festivities, I realized I couldn't do everything alone and my wedding had too many out-of-towners for me to ask anybody else to help me. And this is where Sara comes in to rescue me. Because it was so close to the game, I worried that all of the details and things I imagined and planned wouldn't be picked up 100% by Sara simply because she wasn't there from the start of my planning process, but no sir, she impressed me in every way possible. I decided on the month-of coordination package, where Sara could book up to two vendors for me, and she was on it so quickly and efficiently and kept me in the loop with every major development and communication she'd had without bogging me down with details I didn't want to be involved with (she knew I gave her flowers and decor because those were the two things I cared least about). I initially chose this package because I wanted help with these two vendors and with the million minor details on the day fo the wedding, but what I came to realize was Sara would essentially become my emotional and mental support on the day-of as well. On the day of the wedding, she was super patient with me even though I was going crazy out of my mind (nearly literally... she definitely saw some moments I'm not proud of) trying to make sure my husband, family, bridesmaids, and groomsmen, all from different countries were keeping up with the schedule and communicating. I feel terrible about her seeing me in that form since I didn't give any signs of insanity beforehand, but she took it with beautiful stride and helped me by taking care of the major stressors. I found out about a couple problems after the wedding, like a guest who no-showed and a guest who showed up after canceling, but I did not hear about these or any other issues-- that's how in control and smooth Sara was. Any little detail I predicted would become an issue or didn't even think about, she was always ahead of, letting things flow flawlessly. My bridesmaids were gushing over how she held the answers to everything, allowing them not to be burdened by the decision whether or not to burden me, which even got them to wonder if she knows where Atlantis is. As if it wasn't obvious based on the last few paragraphs, I cannot recommend Sara enough. She was detailed and thorough, patient and courteous, and an absolute joy from the day of our first call to the end of the wedding (actually, even after-- she sent my husband and me a happy holidays card a few weeks after the wedding even though we now live in Australia!). I cringe to imagine how my wedding would've played out if I didn't have her.

    We had an amazing experience with Sara. She provided everything that we could have hoped for from a day of coordinator and helped us in ways that we could not have foreshadowed. She helped us execute what we had envisioned without us having to stress about it on the day of ... View more knowing that her (and her awesome assistant) were taking care of all of the details. This also included being a calming presence throughout the planning process and especially on the day of. Her experience and knowledge of the wedding industry helped to answer any of our questions, including planning advice, as well as helping to problem solve during crunch time the week of the wedding. The meetings that I had with Sara helped to organize our ideas and plans for the day, as she laid it all out neatly after the fact. Her guidance helped to keep me on track, and her coordination of vendors helped to ease my mind and to make everything flow smoothly. My husband and I highly recommend her services.

    We hired Sara as our Wedding 'day of coordinator' and to also take-down our Wedding décor. We were so pleased with her organization skills, positive attitude, and general flexibility. Although I felt we were fairly organized ourselves, she asked a lot of questions we had not ... View more thought about or hadn't quite pinned down when we had our pre-Wedding face to face meetings. By hashing out these details in advance, we avoided a lot of missteps that could have occurred on the day. Generally, it was such a relief to leave all of the behind the scenes details in her and her assistant's hands. Nothing was missed and the day honestly went off without a hitch in our minds. And if it didn't, we weren't aware - which is the experience you want as the Bride and Groom. I would definitely recommend hiring Sara to direct your day!
