  • (Father of bride): After a horrible experience 20 years ago with a "wedding planner/coordinator" at my first daughter's wedding, I was dubious as to the value one of these consultants could deliver. Now you can count me as sold, because Sarah at Daisies & Pearls was indispensable to us in working with our daughter to pull off (and put on) a complicated "fusion" wedding. The wedding included traditional full-dress Sikh/Punjabi ceremonies in the morning and midday, and a traditional "white dress" wedding and reception that night. The wedding was hosted at Spruce Point Inn in Boothbay Harbor, ME, a venue with a number of beautiful alternative gathering sites that enabled us to use basically the entire property over the course of the day. Sarah spent countless hours for many months dealing with our daughter -- by phone, email and text -- to plan the wedding. Sarah had not worked this venue before, so she traveled repeatedly, both on her own and to meet with us, to learn the property... Read more

  • Hiring Sarah was the best decision my husband and I made! Planning your wedding tends to be extremely stressful but we rarely felt that planning pressure thanks to her! Sarah went above and beyond executing our vision. We still have guests tell us how beautiful our wedding was and we couldn't agree more! Working with Sarah was an absolute pleasure! She is extremely detailed oriented and thorough. She is creative, thoughtful, and reliable. Most importantly, she is highly organized. We cannot thank her enough for making our wedding day the best day ever!

  • Sarah was a dream come true from the very first email to the realization of our dream wedding come true. We could not recommend her as a professional and a person more highly.

  • Not a week has gone by since our wedding where I haven’t stopped for a second to think, thank goodness for Sarah! Sarah was an outstanding wedding planner—thoughtful, organized and truly a professional. My husband and I got engaged at the end of March in Washington state, where we lived at the time, and knew we wanted to be married in Maine, 5 months later, in September. A month after our engagement, I accepted a job offer in Maine and a cross country moved was slated for a week and a half prior to our wedding date. All to say, we had a lot on our plates- planning a wedding long distance, planning a move, and both working full time. Choosing to work with Sarah was the very best decision we made in planning our wedding. She was an attentive listener and very professional. She was realistic in coaching us on what the costs would be for our dream day. As an art director in my day job, I was impressed by Sarah’s ability to internalize the vision we had our wedding day and bring i... Read more

  • Our wedding weekend went off without a hitch and it was because of Sarah. I am sure people say similar things about their own wedding designers/planners, but Sarah is truly one of a kind (and I heard that repeatedly from other vendors and friends who had worked with her). She actually goes above and beyond to make everything fit perfectly for you and your family. She is the kind of person that if you wanted to get married on a floating platform, she would try to build it for you (or find someone who could), and it would be even better than you imagined! In all honesty, on our wedding day, everything was taken care of and I just had to show up and marry the love of my life. The best way I can describe her work and her personality is thoughtful. Everything she does is filled with intent and purpose in a thoughtful and meaningful way. We cannot thank her enough for helping us celebrate the best day of our lives. Thank you for being such a warm presence during our wedding planning process ... Read more

  • Where do I begin? Hiring Sarah was the absolute best decision Phil and I could have ever made. We had our hearts set on having a wedding on Great Diamond Island - a place that had come to mean so much to Phil and I. I knew we needed help since we were based in New York. From the very beginning Sarah was a joy work with. She is completely professional, reliable, impeccably organized and on top of all that a wedding genius and just an overall wonderful person. She made our vision come to life in ways that exceeded every expectation. Our wedding was everything I could have hoped for and more. She put together an incredible team of talented vendors and helped coordinate the million details that goes into planning a large formal wedding on an island. She thought of everything and had no problem coordinating over 200 guests - all of whom were flying in from all over the US and the world. I really cannot say enough about her talent and thoughtfulness. Thank you Sarah! If you’re still re... Read more

  • We had such a wonderful experience working with Sarah, and are so grateful to her for her talent and dedication! Sarah was always knowledgeable, enthusiastic, organized, and fun. Our wedding was better than our wildest expectations, and we know that we have Sarah to thank for that! We really felt that we could trust in Sarah's judgement and considerable expertise. Organizing a complex event like a wedding for the first time is daunting, but Sarah guided us through it with ease. She has a great network of vendors (we loved them all!) and works efficiently with them to make so much of the behind-the-scenes stuff seem effortless. She managed everything flawlessly, in the lead up and on the day of. We were able to sit back and soak up the day because we were confident that Sarah had thought through everything and would be extremely capable of dealing with any last minute snag. We cannot recommend her highly enough! She was truly the glue that stuck our whole wedding together. - Becca an... Read more

  • Working with Sarah was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made. We would have been lost without her guidance and expertise, from the overall plan to the budget to the timeline, finding the right vendors, and more. She was so friendly to work with, and her design aesthetic and attention to detail in knowing just how to plan and arrange the decor and manage the setup process on the day of the event was key in helping us create exactly the feel that we wanted for our wedding. We would highly recommend working with Sarah/Daisies & Pearls.

  • Living and working in New York City, our daughter and her fiancé needed on-the-ground help planning their wedding in Maine. Sarah Goodwin was highly recommended to us, and she proved to be an invaluable asset! She quickly grasped the style of wedding our couple wanted and their tastes. Not only did she recommend just the right vendors for them, she also met with each one and handled all the coordination and logistics necessary right through the day of the wedding. Sarah was a superb consultant and advisor. She reviewed contracts and kept us all on track and on time in her calm, tactful manner. She is fun, warm and supportive while being completely professional. We can’t thank Sarah enough for guiding us through every stage of planning so brilliantly and assuring that the day was so very special for all of us!!

  • Sarah was an absolute rock star from start to finish. She has the organization behind planning a beautiful wedding down to a science, but with her creative eye and attention to detail, it still feels like an art. She thought of everything we needed ahead of time, and made our wedding weekend stress free as a result. We would recommend Sarah with great enthusiasm to any couple or family planning a wedding!

  • I can’t say enough great things about working with Sarah to achieve our daughter’s wedding dreams. The event was not a traditional setting and required a number of special accommodations including working with us remotely for the entire planning period. Sarah handled every twist and turn with calm and grace. She helped us through every phase of planning including providing excellent vendor recommendations. She listened when we were anxious, celebrated with us when we were done, and often went above and beyond what we expected. I would recommend Sarah without reservation. She is everything one could ask for in a wedding designer and coordinator.

  • Where to begin with the wonderfulness that is Sarah? Sarah has an incredible way of helping shape your wedding to be exactly what fits you, even in ways that you did not realize. From her vendor recommendations to her design ideas, everything is perfection. Throughout the planning process she is a positive presence that makes everything feel fun and achievable. She helps create your vision without pushing ideas on you. She is always there, ready to answer questions or find solutions. Just when you think Sarah can’t get any better, the wedding day arrives and she knocks everything out of the park. Her design execution, calm presence and attention to detail are amazing. She is incredibly responsive, helpful, talented, competent and sweet. I felt comfortable and content throughout the wedding planning process and wedding weekend because I knew we had Sarah by our side! I cannot say enough good things about her, I will truly miss working with her, and I PROUDLY recommend her to anyone!

  • Sarah is a planning and design goddess. I hired her as my venue designer, which was a great option for me because I wanted to plan the wedding, but needed some help refining the design concept. Sarah helped me develop my wedding vision, crafted an inspiration board, recommended vendors, created a floor plan and wedding design handbook, and kept me sane and excited during the whole process. Since Sarah’s venue design services are hourly, I opted to engage directly with the other vendors. This was easy to do because I was able to pass them the inspiration board and communicate the rental needs that Sarah and I had discussed. Once the wedding arrived, Sarah’s design handbook laid out ever detail of the wedding set-up so execution was a breeze! Sarah’s style, tact, professionalism and general coolness makes her an ideal planner/venue designer! Thanks Sarah!

  • Working with Daisies & Pearls Merrymaking was an incredible experience! We can't say enough good things about Sarah! We were planning our Maine wedding from California, and Sarah helped every step of the way. It was incredibly reassuring to have her on the job. She is amazing at perfecting the details, and helping to make your wedding vision come to life. A wealth of information and so sweet to work with. The day of our wedding, she took care of everything and I was completely relaxed knowing that all of the details were getting sorted out.

  • Sarah was absolutely amazing. From our first call about the wedding to the final clean up, she was organized, friendly, professional, and somehow magically had everything we needed at every moment. The photos of Sarah's events speak for themselves -- she designs beautiful, tasteful spaces that perfectly reflect the bride and groom. A few examples of how critical Sarah was to our wedding going off without a hitch: - We had rain right before out outdoor ceremony -- Sarah was in constant communication with us about plans and timing, worked with vendors and guests to communicate the plan, cleaned up the ceremony site, and convinced us not to spend a lot of extra money on cushions that the venue was trying to rent us. - We had some issues with our lodging. This was not something we had worked with Sarah, but given her expertise in the area, she was able to assist none-the-less. - I liked the look, feel, and cost of bulk flowers instead of arrangements, but this meant filling h...
