  • One of the best pieces of advice we received was to hire a coordinator for our big day. My husband and I are so happy with our decision to hire the SKE team. Alyssa and Melissa were SO great on the day of our wedding and handled any and all bumps (which If there were any, I never knew!) that came their way. Alyssa was also so communicative and supportive leading up to the wedding. They really made our day stress free and perfect. We could not recommend Alyssa and the SKE team enough!

  • Sarah led our styled shoot and did a great job. She was patient and pulled the whole project together. She has offered valuable insight into the wedding space and we are glad we have a great partner in the future to work with.

  • Hiring Sarah as our “day-of” planner was the best decision EVER. She did so much more than I expected from a day-of planner, and her help was priceless in my opinion. She always responded quickly to emails and texts, and her advice made my life so much easier. I contacted her approx. 2 months before the wedding, and not long after I first corresponded with her, we met in person and went over all the wedding details I had so far. She was very organized and immediately made us feel at ease. She then sent us a google doc with multiple templates to fill out; this helped me get organized and figure out what I still needed to work on. She was available to help with any issues/concerns along the way, and always got back to me promptly. About a month before the wedding, she had us over to her home to sample drink options for our signature drink and we chatted, drank, and went over additional wedding details. Sarah does graphic design, so she created a “signature drink” sign, which feat... Read more

  • First let me say that I'm taking time during my honeymoon to write this glowing review of Sarah Kathleen Events. Which says a whole lot right there! I hired SKE for their Day Of Service and they really went over and above. I wasnt originally planning on a coordinator but many past brides told me they wish they had spent the money to hire one. Which by the way its pess expensive then you think! Don't be fooled by the idea of having to hire an independent coordinator versus a team because this team really gets behind each other to make your day special. They will be your village! We first scheduled an appointment and they paired us with the amazing Alyssa. We hit it off instantly. My fiance said it best she had a way of explaining things in an easier way to understand and she felt like family instead of a strict coordinator. Alyssa who is the rock star of our review was constantly checking in within the 6 months we were nearing our wedding. We even utilized some vendor recommendations li... Read more

  • They say hiring a wedding planner is the best money you'll spend, but I'll take it one step farther and say hiring Sarah and Jessica was the best decision we could have made for our wedding. We were originally signed with someone else who had to back out last minute (blessing in disguise). After searching through other companies for a replacement, we were so lucky to find Sarah Kathleen Events. I can't explain the weight that was lifted off our shoulders when we met them. The customer service was far beyond anything we could hope for. We used them for "day of coordination" but Jessica was constantly available for the silliest of questions via text at all times the entire time, not just the 30-60 days prior. She was so organized and encouraging and our day wouldn't have been the same without her. Not only that, but compared to everyone else we spoke to, they were the best priced, but offered the most services and were the friendliest out of everyone.

  • Sarah was my Day of Coordinator and I couldn’t be happier with her! I had no idea how the actual wedding day was supposed to flow and she handled everything! She made the schedule, contacted the vendors I was having a hard time hearing from, and even designed our wedding programs for a really reasonable price when I couldn’t find what I was looking for online. We were planning our wedding from out of state, which could be pretty stressful, but because of her we had zero worries! She’s also honestly one of the sweetest people ever!

  • I originally was not going to hire a wedding coordinator for my wedding. We had 100 guests, so not a huge wedding and I thought we could do without one. I started to get overwhelmed (like most brides) and realized I was going to have to get a coordinator if I wanted to enjoy this day that I worked so hard to plan. I was pretty desperate, and two months before my wedding I reached out to SKE. They had one planner left for my wedding day, and I booked right away after the first meeting. Just the initial meeting put me at ease. My only regret is that I wish I booked them sooner! Kylee was a fantastic. Super responsive, and polite. You can tell she loves doing this. She ran my rehearsal dinner, and I truly can't imagine what the day would have been like without her. What I appreciated about her the most was that she would help me make decisions. When you ask family and friends for help/opinions, you hear a lot of "it's your day. It's up to you" When you are looking for genuin... Read more

  • Sarah assisted professionally in every way possible for my daughter's wedding. She wears 'many hats' such as seamstress, counselor, decorator, emergency florist, dry cleaner (steamer), tear down expert, packed our car with all decorations so we could enjoy every dance including the last one of the evening. Every bride (& the family) needs Sarah at their event. Pictures went perfectly and all the details flowed on my daughter's timeline to a T. Sarah's no -worry personality is a must for every bride out there!!! Thank you Sarah, you truly have a gift as an event planner/organizer.

  • I said this to Sarah at the end of the night, but she was hands. down. the best money we could have ever spent on any vendor for our wedding. We used her for a day of coordinator and she handled everything above and beyond my expectations. Like any wedding, I'm sure there were some missteps in the background. However, I have zero idea of any of them because Sarah and her team handled everything so flawlessly. I don't know what more I could say except hire this lady!

  • Sarah and her team are best! Wedding planning closer to the date, getting all sorts of questions from vendors and family, along with working a full time job gets wild; I felt so relieved to have Sarah take over! Among all the details she also joined for the venue food tasting to make recommendations, assisted with creating a venue 3D layout for best layout configuration, confirmed details with all my vendors, and created a detailed day of timeline. Sarah was always readily available and full of creative ideas. Sarah loves what she does and is amazing at it. I was able to sail smooth into my wedding day because of her. On the big day, Hannalori assisted and she was so wonderful. She made sure the timeline was followed, communicated with guests and vendors so I could enjoy my big day with my groom. SKE, thank you for everything again!

  • Sarah Kathleen Events was pivotal in helping me plan my dream wedding from out-of-state. I live in California and got married in Illinois so Sarah and Kylee were able to go to meetings and/or tastings that I was unable to attend. They were also very helpful in recommending vendors that they have worked with and had great success with in the past. The 3-D drawing of the layout Sarah did helped me picture everything in my space and get a feel for exactly what everything would look like. The day of the wedding Sarah kept everything flowing on time so I didn't have to worry about a thing! I would definitely recommend Sarah Kathleen Events to anyone I know getting married or planning an event!

  • Where do I even start with this?!?! My husband Kevin and I just got married a few months ago and I am still in awe of how perfect the day went. The planning process was SO simple because of Sarah and all of her recommendations about everything. Almost every single vendor we came into contact with talked about how we were the most calm and non stressed out couple they have worked with and I can truly say it was because of Sarah. Any time I was stressed out about anything, all I had to do was text her or email her and she would almost always immediately get back to me while answering my (almost daily, definitely annoying) questions and reassuring me at the same time. Our wedding DEFINITELY would have been a complete disaster without her and I could go on and on about how amazing her and her team are. They were by our side through everything on the day of the wedding and Luis had everything I needed last minute, even when we were taking pictures and I needed chapstick :) I can't thank Sar...

  • Working with SKE for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. From the initial meeting with Sarah and Hannarlori we were sold. They seemed truly invested in making our wedding dream come to life and were so easy to talk to/work with. Sarah provided us with the 3D render of our reception space which was such a helpful tool for us to visualize the wedding. Hannalori was our day of coordinator and we cannot say enough amazing things. From the very beginning, months before the wedding, she was so helpful in providing vendor options and advice. She ALWAYS text me back within minutes. On the day of our wedding she was an absolute lifesaver. She made sure everything ran smoothly. If there were any hiccups, I didn’t even know because she took care of it. We were able to sit back and enjoy our wedding because Hannalori handled it all! We could not be more impressed or grateful to have worked with her and Sarah. We highly recommend SKE to anyone, absolutely worth the investment.

  • Just hire them! Seriously! Do it! Do it now!!! You will regret it if you don’t. I’m not kidding. If you want a stress free wedding, if you don’t want to worry about a timeline Or if something goes wrong and you don’t even want to know about them, HIRE THEM!!!! If you just want extra support the day of HIRE THEM! Seriously they do it all!!!!! We heard about SKE through a relative of mine who used them, I was a bridesmaid at the wedding and I was blown away with all the little things that could possibly go wrong that they were able to fix without anyone knowing!?Just watching the things that Sarah, Kara and Louis pulled off that day made the decision to spending the money on a coordinator (which is not as bad as you think! Seriously the pricing is incredible compared to others and SKE is worth it!!) just that much easier especially knowing it was with them! I knew we would be in good hands and I was right. The best decision I ever made besides marrying my husband was hiring Sa... Read more
