As the mother of the bride, I have to say Sara Franklin is amazing. This is the second time I have used Sara and it was like working with an old friend. She recommended all the vendors which made our life so easy because we trusted her choices completely. She did all the leg work and communication with the vendors and was in on all the decisions. She always had wonderful suggestions. The day of the wedding, she took care of everything. I didn't have to think, I could just enjoy a very special day thanks to Sara. It will be the best money you spend!!!!!!Sent on 11/06/2017

Sara and her team recently planned our wedding, which included a ceremony, lunch, and large evening party (so more than your typical 2 events). I hired her to do part-time and day-of planning. I knew Sara would be great from our very first phone call. She is assertive, very knowledge, not afraid to pipe in to ask the right questions, but also listened intently to our ideas and worked to make them happen - striking the perfect balance and in turn being a lifesaver to my fiancé and I during our wedding planning and the day of our wedding. I cannot thank Sara enough for all of the help and insight she provided during the planning process. Once she had our thoughts on a décor, music, etc., she would communicate directly with the vendor to make it happen, relieving us from a lot of the planning nitty-gritty. On the day of, Sara and her assistant, Missy, ran the show. Jordan and I never once had to think about timing or what was coming up next. I found myself saying more than once to someone asking when the speeches were or when we were cutting the cake, "I'm not sure, but Sara knows, she's find us when it's time." It allowed my fiancé and I to truly enjoy our day and not worry about anything but having a good time with our friends and family. Just have an initial meeting with Sara and you'll know she'll be great :)Sent on 09/26/2016

I have no idea what I would have done without Sara Franklin from Social Scene as my wedding planner!! She made my Mom and I feel like we could completely enjoy the wedding and not worry about any of the details because she was on top of them all! Highly recommend her!! So much fun to work with as well!Sent on 05/11/2015
Sarah is among the most professional and experienced planners we have had the privilege of working with. She is always in control, and ahead of the little details that make or break an event. Her events are always elegant and extremely well styled. Sarah is one of the best planners in DC -- we highly recommend Social Scene.
Sara Franklin handles everything from complete planning to day of coordination. She is definitely a fantastic choice for either. She will ensure that your vision is executed, and that you will have fun making it all happen for the big day. She has a great relationship with her vendors and puts everyone at ease. Weddings can be hectic but having Sara involved means the bride will be able to simply enjoy her day and marry the man she loves.
Sara Franklin of Social Scene LLC iis amazing. She has been working weddings and events in the DC area for quite some time, and her background in off-premise catering gives her an extensive understanding of how to set up and execute every kind of event. I am happy to refer clients to Sara when I am unable to assist them. She is the consummate professional, she has a great attitude, and an endless network of contacts in the area.
