    Best Decision Ever!

    We were so extremely happy to have worked with Sara for our wedding! She worked as day of/month of wedding coordinator for us - she really helped me get organized leading up to the big day. She was super helpful with creating a timeline that best suited our style and very helpful with details regarding the ceremony. Above all else, Sara was extremely calm and came to me the day of only if absolutely necessary to make sure certain details were as I would like them. It was great not having to deal with every other vendor on the day of and only have 1 point of contact to ease my stress level :) We could not have asked for a better coordinator and are very grateful everything went so smooth and on time. She executed our wedding day vision perfectly!

    My life savor

    There aren't enough words for me to express how much we loved working with Sara. Not only is she organized and knowledgeable, she is also so kind and compassionate - truly caring for her couples.

    Sara went above and BEYOND for my husband and I. She was the best coordinator we could have EVER found. I am a bit of a control freak and I knew it would be hard for me to let go on my wedding day and not worry... UNTIL I met Sara. I knew I could trust her with every detail, the timeline, the details, the decor, YOU NAME IT. She made sure everything was perfect for us leading up to the wedding and then the DAY of the wedding.

    She joined our menu tastings and logistics meetings with the venue to make sure that everything was correct. She responded to every call and every text I had in a timely matter providing sound advice. She also gave her opinion on certain things which I really appreciated coming from someone NOT in my wedding.

    We unfortunately had to push our wedding due to COVID. Not only did we have to change dates, but also change venues. Sara was SO supportive and SO helpful throughout this crazy process. She helped us find our NEW venue in a matter of two months. She came to site visits with us & helped us review proposals giving her expert advice.

    I would recommend Sara to ANY bride looking to book a coordinator. ACTUALLY, I recommend ALL brides to book a day-of coordinator (at the least) as it makes the process so much less stressful for brides! Look no further with Sara and 9TwentyEight.

    The only bad thing is that our relationship has sadly ended... I hope our paths cross in the future because I absolutely love her! :)

Sara is an such pleasure to work with! She is very detail oriented and creative. She will go above and beyond adding special meaningful touches. You won't be disappointed in choosing her for your coordinator. Your special day will run smooth and exceed all of your expectations :)

Sara is an absolute gem to work with. She is incredibly professional, meticulous, thoughtful, and creative when it comes to planning and coordinating. In fact, the first time I worked with Sara, she was not only the planner and coordinator of the wedding and reception, but she was also in the bridal party! As if one role wasn't enough, she absolutely excelled at all 3! I have never, in all my years, seen someone manage so many tasks and roles so well. I've worked with plenty of event planners and coordinators in my day, but Sara and 9TwentyEight are one of a very small handful of companies I'd personally recommend. If you're looking for professionalism, personality, meticulosity, relationship and trustworthiness, you've found it.

Sara is such a pleasure to work with! Her cool and calm personality makes weddings run smoothly and her attention to detail is fabulous! I am a professional photographer and I can honestly say that Sara is one of the most delightful event planners I have had the pleasure to work along. Our last wedding was flawless and everyone had an amazing time. Please make sure to put Sara and 9TwentyEight Events on your short list for wedding planners if you have not already done so!
