    Hire Sincerely Pete - you won't regret it!

    Working with Sincerely Pete is truly a great choice. Sarah will put you at ease, calm your fears, and make the entire wedding planning and execution process seem comparatively effortless. That's high praise coming from a couple with little wedding savvy, decision paralysis, and a tendency to research everything to death. Sarah took the time to understand us, helped us decide what traditions made sense, and suggested unique twists to make things personal. She told us where our wish list didn't make sense (one food truck for 80 guests) but came up with even better alternatives to maintain our look/feel (pop-up food stations throughout the evening). She helped us narrow our choices, kept us on track, and made spot-on vendor recommendations each time. The day of our wedding, we had nothing to do but fully experience the events and emotions. No stress, no last-minute details... Sarah had it all under control. She even helped button my dress. It was perfect!

    From Panic to Peace with Sarah Pete!

    When my husband and I first reached out to Sarah Pete, we were panicked: We had just parted ways with the original wedding planner that we hired and we weren’t sure we were going to be able to find another one before our big day. From the first phone call with SP to the end of our wedding day, panic was never again an emotion that we felt.

    We are very happy that we hired Sarah Pete to be our wedding planner. Not only is SP’s energy amazing, but she is extremely creative and is so fun to work with. Throughout the planning process, I felt more like I was planning with a friend than my wedding planner. This, combined with her business-first attitude to getting things done, made us feel very comfortable working with her on items both big and small.

    We got married in my hometown of Sun Valley, Idaho which is pretty slow-paced. Despite the challenges of dealing with vendors from a small town, Sarah Pete navigated conversations and issues beautifully. My florist, for example, didn’t use email and barely texted. Sarah Pete somehow still figured out a way to work with him beautifully and produce an escort card board that was 100% what I envisioned. I am pretty sure they are still friends to do this day as well :).

    On the wedding day itself, Sarah Pete also had all the big and small stuff handled as well. From being there to make sure my veil was perfect to making sure my husband didn’t step in deer poop (!) during sunset photos to helping me handle a dress emergency at the end of the night, Sarah Pete was there to make us feel calm, but more importantly make sure we had the time of our life. At this point it is such a cliche, but I can honestly say that my wedding day was the best day of my life and Sarah Pete truly helped make that a reality.

    So to summarize, If you’re looking for a fun wedding planner that can truly get shit done, hire Sarah Pete!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Sarah! We planned our wedding (140 guests, 10 person bridal party) in about a year. During our first meeting, she gave us a general timeline of what to expect over the course of planning the wedding, and deadlines we should meet. My fiance and I had a baby 10 months before our wedding date, and even with all the craziness that comes with a new baby, I never felt stressed out or overwhelmed with planning the wedding. When the day arrived, everything was even better than I expected. She was even present at the hotel where the bridal party was getting ready before she headed to the venue to set up. At the end of the reception, she took our wedding gifts to the hotel for us so we could head right to the after party. I definitely recommend Sincerely Pete for planning your wedding!
