As a bride planning a destination wedding, Sara was truly the biggest blessing I could have asked for! She was organized on another level and truly had such creative ideas and fabulous vendor suggestions that helped my wedding turn into more than I could have ever imagined. Thanks to Sara the day went off seamlessly without a hitch and I got to really enjoy the day and not worry about everything coming together. Sara is worth every penny!

My daughter was married at our Evergreen home July of 2017. It was an outdoor event with 190 guests and the details were complex as we moved from ceremony to cocktail site and then again up to the tent site for the reception and dancing. We hired Sara over a year before the event. We knew we would need help since my daughter the bride lived in Oregon, and was in med school, so would not have much time to contribute. My goal was to be able to relax and enjoy the wedding day. Sara was a great listener, took good notes, and really understood what we wanted the wedding to feel like and look like. We had phone conferences monthly for a year, and running, personalized Google drive communications all along. She helped us to stay on track during all the planning stages, double- checked our invitations before they were printed and offered invaluable suggestions along the way. If either of us (or the groom) had questions we could call Sara and she would get back to us within the day. She had great suggestions if we needed recommendations for vendors. The month before the wedding we had weekly calls with Sara, as well as a site visit when she visited with caterers and vendors to be sure that everyone was on the same page. She communicated well with the vendors and made sure that everyone showed up on time. She also coordinated a bunch of family volunteers so that everything and everyone found the correct place during a complex set up. She checked in with the bride, the groom and me to find out whether we had any concerns. Sara coordinated the rehearsal like the professional that she is. The wedding day and evening were just PERFECT! I was truly able to enjoy the wedding, reception and after party. I would highly recommend Sara Brown for any wedding big or small. She was great to work with, highly organized.
Sara was absolutely amazing to work with!! She helped me plan my wedding within 45 days. I spoke with several other planners who were scared of the tight timeframe. Sara had no problems with the timeframe, handled it with ease and was a dream to work with. She had great recommendations and contacts to make my dreams come to fruition and she was very flexible and always helped to try and make things as stress-free as possible. She was one of our best wedding investments. Cannot say enough great things and I would hire Sara again in a heartbeat.
If you want the freedom to enjoy your wedding, concentrating on your guests and celebrating your big day rather than worrying whether the DJ knows when to play your first dance song, then you should retain Sara Brown as your wedding planner. Sara did an outstanding job in guiding our family through the myriad steps involved in planning our daughter’s wedding at a Colorado mountain resort. Given the variables associated with a mountaintop ceremony and 150+ guests - weather, logistics, travel times, coordination of separate vendors for flowers, food, etc. - there was much that could have gone wrong or been overlooked. Sara managed all the factors, both large and small, in order to create a perfect Colorado mountain wedding ceremony and reception. Working with Sara is such a pleasure - she has a wealth of experience and contacts which she can provide and which make the wedding planning so much more fulfilling and fun as you see the dream become a reality! Sara suggested many ideas that were key in establishing the wedding and reception tone and atmosphere that we were hoping to achieve. She couples this wealth of knowledge and experience with an approach that is patient, professional and personable.She helped our my daughter and her fiancé, and my wife and me, with the difficult decisions that inevitably need to be made in the planning process, and kept us organized and on-task. Once the date arrived, Sara and her assistant efficiently coordinated the various phases of the ceremony and reception, all the while remaining unobtrusively in the background and ensuring that everything went off without a hitch. We were able to thoroughly enjoy the celebration and be swept up in a wave of happiness and joy without having to concern ourselves with the underlying details (“Did I tip the musicians?”) All the hard work and planning were rewarded with a celebration that many of our guests remarked was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding. I am so thankful and appreciative of the level of service that Sara provided over a period of months that resulted in wedding ceremony and celebration memories that will last a lifetime. I cannot recommend highly enough Sara’s services as a wedding planner.
“Hiring Sara was the single best decision we made in the entire wedding process. We met a few planners before finally meeting Sara. She was the only planner who cared enough to ask questions about us and actually listened to what we wanted on our wedding day. Throughout the entire process, she was ten steps in front of us. We knew that we never had to worry about any of the details because she had them covered. She weeded through the hundreds of possible vendors to the present us with only the best options in our budget range. She communicated quickly with not only us but also both sets of parents. On the actual wedding day, we did not have to worry about anything because Sara had thought of everything. The smallest detail was not overlooked by her. We cannot thank Sara enough for her work on our wedding. It was absolutely perfect for us. We would recommend her to our closest friends and family!”
Where do I even begin to explain how incredible Sara is and the phenomenal impact she has had on our lives?! We hired Sara as a day of wedding coordinator because we wanted to actually be able to enjoy our wedding and the time leading up to it. I knew there was a ton of logistics to handle, even for the most organized bride, but I had no idea just how much. Between decorating the venue on the day of the wedding to coordinating with vendors and family members regarding minute details and timelines (on the day of and the weeks leading up to the big day), to even running out to get more ice during the reception when we ran out, Sara handled everything so smoothly and confidently. Sara has a really calming energy that my now-husband and I found to be very important, especially with the hustle and bustle and emotions that surround weddings. She took the time to understand our hopes and wishes and truly cared what both I AND my groom had to say. We knew we were in good hands with her from our initial meeting and Sara did not let us down once. She was super communicative, organized and delightful to work with and we are sad this whole process is over - that’s how enjoyable it was. We can’t thank Sara enough for helping create the best day of our lives!
Sara was the best hire we made for our wedding! We were planning from Texas, and getting married in Steamboat Springs, CO, so we knew it was going to be a challenge - plus we were on a budget. She was SO wonderful - always available to meet, call or text if I had a quick question. She did a great job keeping us on track and was SO organized. She helped streamline all of my crazy ideas and thoughts into a reality, kept me sane, and most important, was so easy to work with. I can’t imagine our day without her, and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a kind, supportive, organized, fun wedding planner
Sara was fantastic. In addition to just being a good-humored, cool person to be around, she’s very professional, organized and calm. She did a very good job of setting expectations for us and for our family and friends, as well as handled the various vendors and set up. She paid attention to detail and made sure everything was right. I was particularly impressed when she noticed that between the caterers and the table staff, there were no napkins. She brought it to my attention and quickly took care of it.Finally, we did a wedding in a non-wedding venue area with a nice view. I knew it was going to be a hit because of the view, but when I walked down the isle, I was blown away by how beautiful the setting was, and I credit her fully for that.
Sara was literally a god send to us. We had (foolishly) thought “We can do this ourselves”. Oh, but there are so many details and then you actually have to enjoy your own wedding. We found Sara and she stepped in and was fantastic. She was extremely responsive, had great ideas and was so helpful not only in the planning but the execution of the wedding on the day of the event. our wedding was exactly as my husband and I had hoped and I can tell you, Sara Brown is the reason why!”
I could not have pulled my wedding off without Sara! She is absolutely amazing! I highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, calm, organized and supportive wedding coordinator! She went above and beyond my expectations! An emergency came up the weekend before my wedding, and Sara stepped in and completed the task for me. If it had not been for her, it would not have gotten done! The day of the wedding, she was my place of zen. I knew that all the details were getting done, so I could relax and enjoy my friends and family. I worked hard to make my dream wedding come true. Having Sara in my corner allowed me to enjoy every single minute of my very special day! Thank you, Sara!
Sara was exactly what we needed. Though we didn’t think our wedding/reception were complex, they were fairly nontraditional, we soon learned that presented its own challenges. Sara was great about anticipating things we hadn’t planning for those challenges, and executing those plans meticulously. We felt completely at ease turning our event over to her, and she did not let us down. She conducts herself with grace but can pull out whatever is needed to make your event go smoothly.
I’m still glowing and overflowing with joy about how neat our wedding weekend was and I owe a huge part of that to you. Thanks again for everything! Having you there was the best investment we made for the entire weekend! It was so nice to know someone else was managing the flow of everything/everyone else there. We are so appreciative!
Sara made sure everything was in place, was ready when I arrive and I didn’t have to worry about ONE SINGLE thing. She is professional, was fantastic with my guests and is very prepared. it was an absolute honor to have her be a part of my day. she definitely gave me a huge sense of relief that everything was going to be okay and as a bride, you need that.
Sara is extremely organized and relaxed. She handled the rehearsal and made sure everything went smoothly the day of the wedding! She was extremely calm during our wedding making me feel like details just fell into place and I didn’t have to worry about a thing except enjoying our big day.
