Sarah led our styled shoot and did a great job. She was patient and pulled the whole project together. She has offered valuable insight into the wedding space and we are glad we have a great partner in the future to work with.Sent on 12/04/2018

Amazing & Priceless
Hiring Sarah as our “day-of” planner was the best decision EVER. She did so much more than I expected from a day-of planner, and her help was priceless in my opinion. She always responded quickly to emails and texts, and her advice made my life so much easier. I contacted her approx. 2 months before the wedding, and not long after I first corresponded with her, we met in person and went over all the wedding details I had so far. She was very organized and immediately made us feel at ease. She then sent us a google doc with multiple templates to fill out; this helped me get organized and figure out what I still needed to work on. She was available to help with any issues/concerns along the way, and always got back to me promptly. About a month before the wedding, she had us over to her home to sample drink options for our signature drink and we chatted, drank, and went over additional wedding details. Sarah does graphic design, so she created a “signature drink” sign, which featured our cat, and she also created our menu card. All we had to do was “ok” the designs and get them printed. We got so many compliments on the drink sign, and the menu cards were sophisticated and added to the beauty of the dinner tables. After she got all of our wedding details, she put together the master timeline and once I verified it, she sent it to all my vendors and then dealt with them if they had any issues with the timing of their services. Creating the timeline was invaluable to me because that was one of the things I was stressing about for the wedding. I love how she dealt with all the vendors as well, and she would pass along messages from me, so that I wasn’t bombarded with emails from them all day long. Sarah attended our rehearsal and of course she came equipped with all the pertinent info I had written out for her. She was a huge help, and I really appreciated how people and vendors would go to her with changes/issues, and therefore left me alone. When the wedding day came, she was with us like the entire day. She intercepted all our food deliveries, made sure we stayed on time, dealt with all the vendors, made sure the reception was set up the way I detailed out for her, and she even helped set up my items where I wanted them at the reception. She guarded all our gifts/cards, and at the end of the night, she packed up everything, and brought it to my mother in law’s room, so my in laws could bring it back to our house the next day. Sarah brought an intern that day as well, and he was also wonderful to work with!Sent on 12/18/2019
Overall, I would recommend Sarah to anyone I come across that is thinking of having a planner, and I already told my co-worker about her! Sarah’s help and guidance was a Godsend and I would hire her all over again! Worth every penny. Thank you for everything, Sarah!

The perfect coordinators for my perfect day!!!
First let me say that I'm taking time during my honeymoon to write this glowing review of Sarah Kathleen Events. Which says a whole lot right there! I hired SKE for their Day Of Service and they really went over and above. I wasnt originally planning on a coordinator but many past brides told me they wish they had spent the money to hire one. Which by the way its pess expensive then you think! Don't be fooled by the idea of having to hire an independent coordinator versus a team because this team really gets behind each other to make your day special. They will be your village! We first scheduled an appointment and they paired us with the amazing Alyssa. We hit it off instantly. My fiance said it best she had a way of explaining things in an easier way to understand and she felt like family instead of a strict coordinator. Alyssa who is the rock star of our review was constantly checking in within the 6 months we were nearing our wedding. We even utilized some vendor recommendations like our officiant when we were looking for a customizable service. I'm pretty organized so my mother and I throughly enjoyed planning the wedding day on our own but even with the wedding app to do list it was nice to have the backup and support leading up to the day. I can honestly say that the day of the wedding I had absolutely no stress and neither did ANY of the MOMS!!! Which was amazing!!! Alyssa and her assistant Luis made everything run on time. I never had to look at a watch or a schedule the day of they just shepherded us and our vendors. Most people look out for the bride at the reception but my mom said she was stopped non stop and rarely had a chance to get to the bar Alyssa constantly took notice and made sure my mom always had a drink as well as the bride and groom. There really is so much to offer with SK As someone who planned her wedding and tried to keep the expenses down we initially looked at the less expensive coordinators and met with a couple outside our budget. You get what you pay for. And honestly after spending so much money for your perfect day isnt it worth just a little bit more for someone affordable to find a team like SKE who will give you the experiance of a worry free day. I didnt think it existed but it really is true and it can happen to you. All I ask if you take this time to read this review. Give them a chance and set up a meeting. It never hurts to take a meeting. And let them dazzle you the way they dazzled us.Sent on 11/01/2019
Sarah is a well organized event planner and I have seen her in action several times. Sarah is a fast thinking and is able to shift on the fly, she has many good ideas. the best endorsement I could give her is that after seeing her work I introduced her to some friends that actually used her service.
This is one of the most sought after wedding planning/coordinating teams in the Chicago area. With their experience and know-how, you can trust your big day to SKE. As a wedding officiant I always enjoy working with professionals to lead our vendor teams. The planners and coordinators at Sarah Kathleen Events are just those kinds of leaders.
