Wedding Planner

Sari was an amazing party planner! She has the “get it done” energy that every bride needs supporting them throughout the process. She was on point from the moment we found her until the end of our wedding. I was in need of help with only 2.5 months left to plan and she answered my call right away. She is fun to talk to and had the experience to make the perfect suggestions based on your wants and needs. She brought her A Team to help make our day the best it could be. Her husband was very helpful and provided the comic relief we needed to keep the pressure off. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Thank you Sari for everything!
