Sarah was a dream come true from the very first email to the realization of our dream wedding come true. We could not recommend her as a professional and a person more highly.

Not a week has gone by since our wedding where I haven’t stopped for a second to think, thank goodness for Sarah! Sarah was an outstanding wedding planner—thoughtful, organized and truly a professional. My husband and I got engaged at the end of March in Washington state, where we lived at the time, and knew we wanted to be married in Maine, 5 months later, in September. A month after our engagement, I accepted a job offer in Maine and a cross country moved was slated for a week and a half prior to our wedding date. All to say, we had a lot on our plates- planning a wedding long distance, planning a move, and both working full time.
Choosing to work with Sarah was the very best decision we made in planning our wedding. She was an attentive listener and very professional. She was realistic in coaching us on what the costs would be for our dream day. As an art director in my day job, I was impressed by Sarah’s ability to internalize the vision we had our wedding day and bring it to life by suggesting, hiring, and coordinating the right vendors (excellent lighting plug: Griffin&Griffin! Michael Beling for jazz music!) and being open to working with new vendors we suggested (family friends who were catering! And Bumbleroot Organic Farm Flowers!) Sarah saw the potential in the “venue,” a very meaningful place to us, a community sailing club, and understood that we wanted to celebrate the place, not cover up its imperfections. She embraced the space and suggested creative solutions that had our guests complementing the day just how we’d hoped, “so comfortable and welcoming,” “like being home.”
Sarah’s superior ability to earn our trust from 3,000 miles away while planning, through site visits, meeting my parents, and phone calls are what allowed our families, my husband and myself to fully enjoy our wedding day. We knew Sarah had every detail covered: from making sure my train looked great heading down the aisle to proposing a beautiful and intimate ceremony guest seating arrangement. Her experience and demeanor (professional, full of energy- she was so busy our wedding day, keeping it all flowing!) were the perfect combo for allowing us to fully focus on each other, our families, guests and enjoy the celebration to its fullest! Many of our friends commented on how I was such a relaxed and present bride on my wedding day; this could only have been possible because I had so much trust in Sarah.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Sarah!

Our wedding weekend went off without a hitch and it was because of Sarah. I am sure people say similar things about their own wedding designers/planners, but Sarah is truly one of a kind (and I heard that repeatedly from other vendors and friends who had worked with her). She actually goes above and beyond to make everything fit perfectly for you and your family. She is the kind of person that if you wanted to get married on a floating platform, she would try to build it for you (or find someone who could), and it would be even better than you imagined! In all honesty, on our wedding day, everything was taken care of and I just had to show up and marry the love of my life.
The best way I can describe her work and her personality is thoughtful. Everything she does is filled with intent and purpose in a thoughtful and meaningful way. We cannot thank her enough for helping us celebrate the best day of our lives. Thank you for being such a warm presence during our wedding planning process and more importantly on our wedding day. <3
We had the pleasure of working with Sarah this summer! She was a joy to be around and the event went so smoothly thanks to her expertise planning!
It is always a pleasure to work with Sarah on one of her events! It is fun to collaborate with her on the creative details for each event.
Sarah Goodwin is terrific and has done beautiful things at Hardy Farm!
