    Excellent wedding, in large part thanks to Sara

    When we first met Sara she was very relaxed and she always stayed relax, composed and professional throughout our entire wedding day and planning process. As our Day-Of coordinator, Sara was extremely helpful thinking of what will make things easy for guests, asking us questions we wouldn't have thought of on our own, and making executive decisions on things that needed to get done. It allowed us to glide through our day knowing there was someone one step ahead of us the entire time setting things up. Sara made herself available for an entire afternoon to attend our rehearsal and venue walk-through, which showed us how dedicated she was to making sure our vision the day was executed perfectly. Sara's assistant was also very helpful - it's obvious they're a great team together. Thank you for hustling behind the scenes for our sake, Sara!

    I could not have asked for a better day of coordinator!

    Sara was absolutely amazing! She answered any questions I had about anything within hours and was so on top of everything! Thank god I had her to remind me about all the little details that were totally over my head. She is super easy going and personable but also knows how to get stuff done! I would highly recommend Create weddings and events !!

    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 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 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.

    Sara was smart, efficient, and went the extra distance for my wedding! Her day-of coordination services were invaluable and I would recommend her to anyone looking for extra help on their big day! Thank you, Sara!

    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 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!

    Sara was amazing. We had 6 months to plan our wedding (~100 people Catholic Wedding), and Sara made it manageable. She helped by narrowing down vendors to a few suggestions based on what we told her we were looking for, she was organized and made sure we were on track, and she put us at ease with her wealth of knowledge of the wedding industry.

    The day of our wedding, I was so relaxed knowing that she would have everything under control and was able to enjoy the day. I would 100% recommend that people planning a wedding (or party) have Sara help and I have recommended her to many people already in the few months since my wedding!

    She is easy to work with, she will put your mind at ease and is worth her weight in gold.. but luckily her fees were very reasonable!

    My husband and I are very happy customers! :D

    Choosing Sara to be our wedding planner was one of the best choices my husband and I made. Sara has a calm and soothing approach to every aspect of the planning and process. After every meeting with Sara we felt energized and excited for the big day. She has impeccable attention to details and made aspect of my vision a reality. Sara does the little extras like going to a wedding dress fitting to helping me find hard to locate decor. She was available at times that worked around my husband and my complicated schedules. My friends stated that this was the only wedding they had been to that ran on time. On the day I was able to relax and drink everything in because I knew Sara was on top of things. We cannot recommend her services enough.

    My husband and I found Sara Thom to be very approachable, it was like having a friend help us out. She gave us confidence that every last thing would be looked after. I think she is the only reason I wasn't having a meltdown on the wedding day, unable to coordinate or oversee preparations - I knew it was in good hands! Sara anticipated needs and dealt with unforeseen issues, changes and last minute requests with grace and professionalism. My reception was just as I had envisioned it thanks to Sara and when the fun was over she was there to the bitter end, making sure everything was done. Thank you so much for making our big day a care-free, beautiful event!
