  • I hired Sara to help me with my proposal to my girlfriend in early July in Newport, RI. I wasn’t sure about hiring an event (wedding) planner for such an occasion, but she was the best decision I could've made! Sara helped deliver the vision for my proposal and added high value ideas that really made the proposal! (eg. white rose petals leading to proposal spot and rental of a vintage vehicle to take my fiancé and I from the proposal location to a private dinner – sourced by Sara). She was also really great about keeping me in check about what was reasonable and within the budget we had initially discussed. Furthermore, she developed a “plan B” scenario when bad weather was forecasted leading up to the day, luckily we made it through the proposal with no rain! Sara was proactive, kind, communicative, creative, and helped me execute a phenomenal evening both my fiancé and I will never forget!

  • We could not have pulled this wedding off stress-free without Sara! I was coasting on the actual wedding day because I knew she was in the driver's seat. We got married on November 30, 2019 at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park (NYC). It helped she's worked many weddings at the venue so she knew the staff and I didn't have to worry about very tedious things like distributing permits required for vehicles to enter Central Park. Her pre-wedding documents helped really solidify any details that I hadn't worked out yet (picture order, timeline of events, carrying cash and snacks etc.). She also has a very authoritative presence, so she had no trouble keeping pictures and videos on time and even early. I had such a flawless day, in large part due to Sara (and her fun assistant, Travis)! It was just such a savior to have Sara there on our wedding day!

  • Sara has a positive, optimistic, can do attitude that is highly infectious in a very good way! She and her team made the day stress free by coordinating every detail at my daughter's event space: 99 Scott, which by the way is a super cool venue. Highly recommend Sara for anyone going through the process!!

  • I can't say enough about the professionalism of Sara and her colleague. At every turn, Sara made us calm and took care of us like relaxed, honored guests at our own wedding (as we wanted). Sara is the unique, highly skilled expert who never seemed interested in anything but our vision and making it come to life. At the same time, when there were last-minute things we couldn't have envisioned (as there always are), she had the steady hand to guide us. Even more, she made our parents, our families, our friends, all feel like they were at the greatest party without a care in the world. We are a demanding duo, one working in fashion, one working in media, and both used to seeing execution of the highest levels. Sara came through on every detail, even advising us where there were opportunities to get our experience without overspending along the way. If you have dreamed of your wedding, but also of really experiencing it, rather than executing on your own, you could not choose better than S... Read more

  • Sara was a dream come true in a partner for our wedding planning. Her vision, support, and guidance throughout the entire process were wonderful and she created an elegant, timeless event for us. Sara’s creativity and expertise were everything we hoped for in a wedding planner and by the end of the process, we considered her as much of a friend as a partner. Sara is responsible for making our wedding feel seamless and cohesive. We had extremely high expectations for what we wanted from our wedding and Sara delivered a level of execution, counsel and attention to detail that far exceeded what we hoped for. Sara’s Partial Planning package was perfect for us and she and her team went above and beyond at every step. Her technical execution was flawless and her close relationship with the top vendors in the City was evident by the ease of coordination across our event. Thank you to Sara and her team for accounting for every detail, large and small.

  • How a wedding could ever happen on schedule and issue-free without Sara and her team is beyond me. Sara, Travis, and Ava were our day-of coordinators, though she stepped in to help much earlier than that. The peace of mind they provided in the weeks leading up to our wedding was invaluable, but the laughs and happy tears that were a result of them being with us on our wedding day were more than we anticipated. We never once had to worry about where to be and when, if things were being set up properly, if our guests were having a good time, or how we would get all of our things back to the hotel – Sara took care of all of this. On top of her experience, her energy brings a level of confidence that makes her the most necessary expense on such an important day. I will suggest SL Events to every one of my friends who are planning their weddings.

  • Sara went above and beyond for every aspect of planning our wedding. From responding to myself, the bride, within seconds at nearly every correspondence to managing the personalities of both sets of parents involved to interacting and cutting deals with the other vendors we hired - she was nothing short of perfection. Sara brought in an entire all star team to execute our full 2-3 day wedding weekend which went off without a single issue. I am forever grateful to ALL of SL Events staff and hope to plan many more events with them in the future!

  • Had my sons wedding at the NYAC and Sara and her Assistant were wonderful. They handled all the last minute details and allowed us to really enjoy the wedding. Definitely a must team to have those last few weeks before the big day! They are a pleasure to work with!

  • Sara and her assistant provided 'day of' services for my son's wedding earlier this month. I am from the U.K., where such services are not often used. In my opinion, this service was invaluable. Everything was covered, from rowdy groomsmen intent on emptying the mini-bar and rendering themselves incapable of tying bow-ties, to a guest's 'wardrobe malfunction.' It takes very special people to manage such a variety of cultures and expectations with humour, tact and diplomacy. They were discrete when appropriate, and yet very visible when needed. Well done to all concerned.

  • We LOVED every minute and every aspect of our wedding, and we wouldn't have been able to do it without Sara. She made the planning process easy from the start, found us our unique and gorgeous venue for the date we wanted, and helped us so much with her skills at design, managing vendors, and coordinating the many many elements of the big day. Sara was careful to alert us to any decisions that would put us over budget, and she suggested easy places to cut costs. We selected the full planning package because we both have demanding jobs, and it was worth the price. I was basically stress-free during the entire planning process, and even when I was a little nervous in the days leading up to the wedding, Sara was so on top of things that she put me right at ease. Last but not least: our wedding went off without a hitch, we had an amazing time, and our guests loved every minute. Service, catering, music, lighting, decor, flowers were all perfect and Sara's team made sure we could just... Read more

  • As a mother of the Bride living in Honolulu and having a wedding in Montauk at Gurney’s, Sara was the BEST decision my daughter made! She hired Sara for month-of coordination, which involved tying up all the logistics for the big day and executing the vision. We had a last minute desire to do a Candy Bar and Sara was instrumental in giving us the guidance we needed. She beautifully set it up for us too! I was able to actually enjoy the day and not worry about a thing. She gave me great insight for my speech and certainly calmed my nerves. Sara’s entire team was so professional and they communicated well though out the day so stealthily. You will be elated that you hired SL Events without a doubt!

  • Fabulous to work with! I (bride) got married Sept 2018 at Gurney's Montauk and hired SL Events to do day-of coordination and they did an amazing job. True to their mission, I felt like a guest at my party. They made the day stress free and handled everything so I just got to enjoy my day and spend time with my guests. I plan events for a living so have high standards and they get a glowing review from me. Right before the wedding, there are so many logistics and little things that can fall through the cracks and they were on it all so nothing was missed. Also, SL Events saved me a lot of time and stress by having them come in and take over all vendor communication. They thought of things I didn't even think to ask. Highly recommend hiring SL events to make your wedding run smoothly. Also, Sara and her team are so sweet and professional and a pleasure to work with.

  • Sara was our wedding planner for our wedding in Brooklyn, NY in August 2018 and she was absolutely incredible. We live on the West coast and had to plan a wedding in 8 months, but Sara made the whole process feel manageable. She helped us come up with a budget that we were comfortable with, suggested fantastic vendors and worked with them directly leading up to the big day (including negotiating on our behalf and saving us lots of $$), and made sure that everything went smoothly on the day of. She was very responsive to our questions, proactive about things we didn't think of, and generally a very professional and friendly person to work with. I could not recommend her highly enough!

  • Sara and her assistant Carly were amazing. They made my daughter’s wedding seamless and were incredibly responsive - we did not have to worry about a single glitch and were able to enjoy the magical evening. Their responsiveness and professionalism were not just appreciated by us but by the other vendors. We highly recommend using them if you want a perfect wedding!

  • SL Events provided partial planning services for our wedding this past June at the Metropolitan Club. I can’t underscore enough the degree to which Sara went above and beyond to ensure that the day was absolutely perfect. She spent countless hours in the months leading up to the wedding advising and helping us with everything down to the smallest detail, from building out a detailed schedule of the day, managing the band, photographers and other vendors, to making sure that my grandmothers had comfortable chairs to watch our first dance up close and coordinating props for our photo booth. Sara is extraordinary steady and calming, and was a joy to work with from day one. We had a fairly large wedding (~250) and I was apprehensive going in that it might be overwhelming: Sara made sure that stress was the farthest thing from our minds, and elegantly guided us through the day, including ensuring that we had a few moments to ourselves after the ceremony and before the first dance to decom...
