Rehearsal Dinner & Welcome Cocktail Party at Montalto

Sarah is absolutely amazing! She is meticulously organized, professional, offers guidance, design advice, vendor suggestions, and managed the events to a precise timeline. We had to “reset” the venue from a dinner setting to a cocktail party in a set 15 minute timeframe and it was done perfectly. We had shuttles on a precise schedule, and they executed beautifully. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Everyone raved about each detail and we were able to focus on the guests and enjoy our event. She was flawless!

Sarah was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Her attention to detail and her knowledge is incomparable.

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Sarah guided us from the beginning and helped us to execute a perfect wedding day. She went above and beyond and her attention to detail is remarkable. She connected us with amazing vendors and gave us suggestions along the way and was also very mindful of our budget. We didn’t have to think about anything on our wedding day, we showed up and had fun and Sarah handled the rest. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding!!

Highly recommend!!

Sarah is truly the best of the best—not only is she organized, responsive, flexible, kind, and incredibly talented, she also makes wedding planning fun! Our wedding day went so smoothly thanks to Sarah and her team. She handled every wedding day surprise effortlessly, including a rain shower shortly before our outdoor ceremony! Sarah and her team dried off all the chairs and got the ceremony back on track before I even knew it rained! Sarah is amazing at what she does and we highly recommend her!
