    My only regret is not having Sarah helping me from the start of planning our wedding! We hired Sarah for the month and day of planning/coordinating. She went above and beyond for us, she not only completely took care of ours but also all of our guests needs. Our special day went without flaw thanks to Sarah and I would definitely recommend her to any bride feeling overwhelmed by the planning process! She’s totally worth it!

    From the first meeting with Sarah over coffee, to the final moments when she was letting me know that all of my belongings were packed away in my MIL's car and I was free to head to the after-party completely care-free and without my hands full, Sarah was our saving grace. As other reviews said it so well, Sarah does her job so effortlessly that you can't even tell she's working. She has a very sweet and nurturing charm that puts everyone at ease. I have a very hard time letting go of the details, and Sarah is the one person that I felt comfortable surrendering the wedding to. Her taste and style helped keep my dream design centered all the way through the end. She is professional, responsive, detail-oriented, and very results-oriented. I can't say enough. I hope to have the opportunity to recommend her a thousand times.

    Sarah is a gem!! My husband and I needed help planning our destination wedding in Monterey from our home in New York and are so glad we found Sarah Ward. All of her vendor recommendations were spot-on and we ended up having a dream-team of individuals that worked so well together to make our day even more special. She coordinated all details with the vendors while conveying a professional, warm and calming tone that was very helpful. I would send e-mails with many bullet points of issues or questions and she made sure to timely respond to every detail. When I suggested bad ideas out of bridal naivete, she was so patient while explaining the problems in feasibility and kindly suggesting alternatives. As a bride, wedding planning can feel very personal so it's important to have a caring professional who can support your vision, give guidance all the while being sensitive and knowledgeable. She organized a very detailed wedding weekend timeline and coordinated with all vendors on their responsibilities. As a result, the wedding day was a completely stress-free smooth operation from start to finish. I would highly recommend her to coordinate your event in Monterey/Carmel! Thank you, Sarah!

    I've known Sarah since she worked at Monterey Plaza Hotel which is a major wedding venue in our market and excellent training ground. While there, she was very involved in our local wedding association, Monterey Bay Wedding and Event Professionals. Later when she started her own business, I've seen her fleurish. Her design aesthetic is very current. She's sharp with a Southern wit. Sarah offers confidence and guidance to her customers which makes a huge difference at an event. I've had opportunity to work with Sarah at weddings and I always feel that things are being taken care of and our client is happy. Bring it on. She can handle it!
