Sara is the BEST! I planned my wedding from California, and had no idea where to start. From the beginning, Sara was very patient to walk me through all the things that I need to prepare, answered all my questions, and kept an organized time table to keep everything on track.... Read More Sara communicates well, and would make sure that things are tailored to my envisions. All the vendors that Sara recommended are top notch! On the day of my wedding, it was valuable to have Sara there overseeing everything and calms me down to enjoy the moment. My wedding turned out to be exactly what I wanted. Thank you Sara for all your efforts and help. My wedding wouldn't have be as lovely without you!

Sara is AMAZING! We planned our wedding from the mainland and Sara's help was invaluable from the beginning of the planning process. She was incredibly attentive, organized, and responsive, which helped to ease any stress that came up. Our ceremony was perfectly tailored to what... Read More we envisioned. Sara knows her stuff and all of her recommendations for vendors on the Big Island were fabulous. On the day of when things felt a little overwhelming, she was calm and focused which helped to ease any stress. Thanks to Sara when anyone asked if planning a wedding was stressful I could honestly smile and say "no, it's been fun!" I wholeheartedly recommend Sara to anyone planning a special event, especially their wedding.

As wedding professional myself, I knew that I had to pick the right wedding planner to help me with design and coordination for the day of our wedding. There was never a question in my mind that I should work with anyone but Sara. Her eye for design and her ability to hone in on... Read More what you need and how to achieve it to pull off your wedding vision is amazing. From the get-go, she helped me narrow my focus, figure out what was most important to us, stick to our budget, and pulled off the wedding of our dreams! Having Sara there as the calm and confident face to look to at any point during the day was such a blessing. She made sure that we had everything we needed, that our vendors did everything they needed to do, and everything went smoothly. I can't rate her highly enough, and I recommend her to all of my clients who need a planner.

As a doctorate student, attempting to plan a destination wedding at the same time as my coursework was a bit stressful to consider. Sara took care of every detail and thoroughly brought to life exactly what my husband and I hoped for. Not living in HI, I had no idea what vendors... Read More were work, the venue we were using, etc. and she took care of everything. She suggested all the vendors we used and every single vender was spot-on! Not one thing about the day would I change and it was completely because of her. I could not recommend another planner, she's the best!

Sara was not only the greatest and most available wedding planner ever, she also felt like a friend. She was encouraging and enthusiastic, and always had our best interest in mind. She even replaced a florist who wasn't quite our style before we even had to complain about it.... Read More Her recommendations were all spot-on, from the band to the caterer to the world's greatest officiant. Sara gave us Skype walk-throughs of various potential venues, and helped us assemble pinterest boards of our favorite decore. Our friends kept asking us if we were stressed about the wedding, and we could only respond with, "Not at all, our coordinator's got it covered." She helped us cope with a rainy wedding day and an overbooked venue so that our wedding was still picture perfect and the most beautiful, fun, and memorable day of our lives. She had a great way of shepherding us through rehearsal, the reception, and all of the to-do's of getting a wedding done. TL; DR: Amazing collaborator. Made wedding planning absolutely stress-free. 10/10.

Absolutely amazing!!

Sara was such an amazing wedding planner. She made our day so special. She gave any advice that I asked for and had such amazing ideas. My wedding turned out like a fairytale because of her. There was nothing I would have changed. I would give her over 5 stars if I could.

The best!

Sara was amazing. I couldn't have had the beautiful wedding I did without her. My wedding was a destination wedding so it was very challenging to plan on my own. But once I contacted Sara she made everything very easy. She is extremely knowledgable about other vendors on the... Read More island and was very helpful with coordinating their services. She definitely went above and beyond my expectations. She was very quick to respond to my emails and supportive with all my preferences and decisions about my wedding. On my wedding day, Sara took care of everything and designed the ceremony and reception exactly how I imagined. She was very well organized and is very detail orientated. I would highly recommend Sara for any event and feel very lucky to have had her as my planner.

Sara is a wonderful wedding planner

We found Sara through our travel agent. We instantly liked her when we spoke with her the first time. We live in MN and Sara handled all of our wedding arrangements on the Big Island. She recommended the officiant, photographer, limo company, florist, and everything... Read More else. Everyone she recommended was wonderful. The photographer had the photos done in two weeks. The flowers were beautiful and lasted the full nine days we were on the island. Anything we needed, Sara had resources to help us get what we needed while still at home. She made sure what we needed in Hawaii we had. Sara was there to help take pictures during and after the ceremony. She had a camera in one hand and a cell phone camera in another and managed to get pictures off of both. She had every detail of the day scheduled to make sure the groom left the hotel earlier enough not to see me before the wedding. I highly recommend Sara to coordinate your wedding. I'm sure I'm not covering nearly everything she did, but I felt confidence in her from day one and the day was absolutely perfect.

Superb, satisfaction guaranteed
