  • Seriously the best decision made during our process was hiring Sarah! I met Sarah at a small bridal show and she was the very first vendor we booked. I was the first in my family to get married and planning is definitely not my forte—Sarah’s expertise and knowledge base are endless and she made the planning process so easy. She was incredible in helping us shape our vision and values into our dream ceremony and reception. I could not have asked for a better wedding day, her and her team pulled off every detail and ensured that our day went smoothly- even when part of my dress broke during the reception! I cannot thank Sarah enough for all the time and work she put into our wedding- she is INCREDIBLE. I would recommend her a thousand times over!

  • Without a doubt, our wedding would not have been the success it was without Sarah and her team. Our lifelong memory of the whole experience was imprinted with class and quality. We constantly are complemented by our family and friends in how beautiful, fun, and well-coordinated the wedding was, which is exactly what we wanted for our guests. Our marriage was observed through a Hindu-Christian ceremony and we had the exciting challenge of mixing cultural traditions throughout the event. Sarah was more than up for the challenge. For us, Sarah was much more than just another vendor. She established herself as an accountable partner in leading the planning of our wedding. She took our goals and desires to heart and helped us form a plan to achieve them in the best way possible. We came to her with ideas, a timeline, and a venue, and she guided us through the rest. Her experience was evident as she helped us with the creation of a budget that was realistic and accurate for our desired... Read more

  • WOW! I don't even know where to begin. From the day we first met Sarah to the last dance on our wedding night, she has gone above and beyond to make our wedding dreams come true. She has a glowing passion for what she does and arrived at every meeting with enthusiasm and ideas galore. Her extreme organization, attention to detail, and overall expertise made it effortless to trust her with everything for our big day. We are thrilled with how stress free and wonderful our wedding day was and all of that is due to Sarah! She is simply the best.

  • As the mother of the bride, I knew we needed someone who could make the process easy from start to finish. My experience with Sarah was incredible.!!! She worked closely with my daughter and me on every aspect of the wedding. Her attention to detail and organization was stellar and I never had to worry about anything. She was always one step ahead of me making sure I knew what to expect with respect to costs, vendors, etc. Her positive energy and calmness was always appreciated and she knew how to handle every situation that came up. I can’t say enough about Sarah and her team!! And as the mother of the bride, I could not have asked for a better experience with a wedding planner!!!

  • Are you getting married? Then stop what you are doing right now. Stop it, and go hire Sarah and Christina. These two were my actual lifelines the month before, and day of my wedding. They are there to review every little detail to make sure nothing is overlooked, they do all of the final coordination with your vendors, and their spreadsheets and timelines are straight out of my OCD dreams. They helped with everything you can think of: steaming bridesmaid dresses, the room flip, taking luggage to our hotel, bustling my dress, bringing my change of shoes to the head table… you name it, they were there. I cannot thank them enough for all that they did to give me my dream day. My only regret is only getting the month-of package and not hiring them for full-service planning. There is no doubt in my mind that it would be 100,000x worth it! SO MUCH LOVE FOR QUINTESSENTIAL EVENTS!

  • Sarah was truly the biggest blessing during my wedding planning process. I had already booked my venue and had 7 months to plan when I came to her. From the very first email exchange, she made me feel calm and confident that I could pull off the wedding of my dreams. She also made me laugh which is so important during the joyful but sometimes overwhelming planning process! When I was planning my wedding, I had a full-time job, a part-time job, a prn job, and 2 unexpected week long travels, with one of them being 2 weeks before my wedding. Despite how hectic my life was, never once did I feel stressed because of Sarah. Sarah's drive, work ethic, communication and organization skills, promptness, honesty, and talent is unmatched. She is extremely passionate about wedding planning and that was evident each step of the way. I would describe myself as a planner, but Sarah was always 5 steps ahead of me. I would also describe myself as picky, but I never had to worry about Sarah making desig... Read more

  • Sarah and Christina were a god send! Our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect, and everything we imagined. They work so hard behind the scenes to orchestrate a seamless day for the whole bridal party. The end of the night we walked up to our room exhausted to find some cake and left overs from our dinner perfectly packaged in our room, my husband may have been more excited than me, but this is some of the many small details they do that make everything perfect. I can't thank them enough for all that they did, 10 out of 10 recommend!

  • From our very first meeting, we knew Sarah would be the best wedding planner for us. No question or concern was too small, and she handled everything with grace, patience, and humor! We trusted her professional guidance and experience with all of our vendors and she never led us astray. Our rehearsal dinner and wedding day were so smooth. Great experience, great team, great vendors, great friend!

  • Hands down the best decision we made during the entire wedding process was hiring Sarah!! She made our wedding such an enjoyable experience. Sarah and her team go above and beyond in every aspect of the wedding planning adventure. My husband and I first met with Sarah 15 months before saying I do. We walked away feeling so comfortable and excited. It felt like we had just met with a friend we had known for years, that’s how down to earth she is. She just gets it, she gets it all! Fast forward 14 months to our 30 days out meeting with Sarah and Brooke ...I was completely blown away by their incredible attention to detail and extreme organization. They thought of EVERYTHING. As one who stresses easily, I left that meeting feeling 100% stress free. Sarah was available 24/7 . Her charts, to do lists, and timelines were unbelievable. I have no clue how she does it. She kept us on task and up to date daily. Our wedding weekend went off without a hitch and we truly had the time of our lives... Read more

  • Absolutely perfect! BRAVO! Sarah and her team were professional, punctual and poised to deal with any contingency that might have occurred. Frankly, their detailed approach to event planning leaves little room for error. Take it from a Father of the Bride, this wedding weekend was flawless due to Quintessential Events. Do not hesitate to hire Sarah, for if you do, she might not be available. It's truly is an investment you will not regret. I'd do it again in a heart beat!

  • Sarah is everything we wanted in a wedding planner! She made us feel like our wedding was her entire focus and really listened to our vision and priorities. She took over all communication with our vendors and worked with them to finalize all logistics and timing. She really kept us on track with a to do list that had tasks I wouldn’t have even thought of (like buy guest book pens and create playlist for getting ready). She also created the most detailed wedding timeline I have ever seen!! (which made this type A planner bride so incredibly happy!) She really took all of the stress off of my husband and our families during the last month of planning. There are SO many little things to figure out in those last few weeks that Sarah just took care of with ease. On top of her master planning and facilitation of the day, we really appreciated all the little things Sarah did to make our day special. For example, she made sure my husband and I had our drink of choice waiting for us when ... Read more

  • Sarah is WONDERFUL!! As the MOB, I of course, wanted the big day to be amazing! I also didn’t want to worry about all the little details, on the big day. The Quintessential team made the day flawless! We choose the ‘month of’ package (which is worth every penny!!). My only regret, is we didn’t hire Sarah as our full planner. This lady knows what she is doing. So many great Q-tips and worked so well with all the vendors. Didn’t think I would ever meet someone who loves spread sheets as much as my daughter 😉 We loved working with you Sarah! Thanks for everything!

  • Sarah Quinlivan is a wedding planning fairy godmother. She makes the impossible possible (within reason and budget 😏). She turns dreams into reality. She’s not afraid of the “out-of-the-ordinary-one-of-a-kind-not- your-basic-b****-Pinterest-wedding”, in fact she lives for them! My husband and I wanted a wedding that felt like US. Sarah EXCEEDED every expectation we had and opened our eyes to options we didn’t even know were possible; all while staying on budget. Her hustle is unmatched, her professionalism is on point, her kindness is everything, her heart is pure gold, and her love of love is infectious. When we first met Sarah we knew she was the planner for us. She is no nonsense, she is organized, she is honest. I love that she will always give it to you straight. She doesn’t candy coat things. That’s one of the qualities that drew us to her. We’ve never planned a wedding before we were totally lost until we met Sarah. She held our hand the whole way and made sure ... Read more

  • Sarah is a Miracle Worker! As the Mom of the Bride I had a definate standard for the wedding coordinator I wanted for my daughter’s wedding. After searching and interviewing... we knew Sarah was the only one for the job! She was organized, professional, adorable, fun and had creative ideas. Right after we hired Sarah she met with us and visualized the entire picture of what my daughter wanted to have transpire the day of her wedding. No piece of information was too big or to small for us to talk about. Sarah wanted to know it all!! From beginning she took over all contacting, organizational and administrative work. She lifted off everything from us including stress. Sarah worked hard, directed, displayed, decorated, coordinated and lived my daughter‘s wedding from inception to fairytale ending. The Bride and I could not have pulled this wedding together without her! Sarah is the absolute best!!

  • Sarah is a life saver! My husband and I were living across the country while planning and Sarah helped us bring everything together. We had a multicultural wedding with several extra events, and Sarah blended everything beautifully, taking care of all the details so we were free to enjoy our special day. Her organizational skills and constant communication make you feel like everything is well taken care of. She has great advice and is willing to help with everything! Wedding planning can be stressful, but Sarah was so organized that when the wedding day came, I was not worried about any of the logistics of the day, because I knew Sarah had it handled.
