  • We hired SL Events to provide day-of coordination services for our January 13, 2018 wedding at the Rainbow Room. Sara came highly recommended by family friends who used her for a wedding the previous autumn. Without a doubt, Sara's fee was the best money we spent on the wedding. Sara advertises "day-of" coordination, but she was available for the full six or so weeks prior to the wedding to answer questions and manage all logistics. She was also available even earlier than that -- she happily answered a few planning-related questions and provided helpful recommendations. In the month leading up to my wedding, I was not in contact with any of my vendors -- Sara handled it all -- and I felt completely confident handing over the full extent of the logistical work to her. She is calm, collected, flexible, approachable, and fun. She totally understood what my anxieties were, and she made sure that they were all ironed out perfectly. She put together an EPIC timeline for the whole day of the... Read more

  • We hired Sara Landon as our day-of coordinator for our 9/30 wedding. She came highly recommended from our photographers (Ryan and Tatiana Brenizer, whom we loved btw), as she actually was THEIR wedding planner -- and we figured, why not trust people with tons of first-hand wedding experience? GREAT DECISION. Sara was amazing and put us at ease from our first meeting. She really showed us her worth in the month leading up to the wedding. Apparently, planning an all-day, 50-60-person event requires a lot of attention to detail that my husband and I don't have, oops, but Sara does! She helped us create our schedule, provided guidance when we were confused (who gives speeches?), warned us against bad ideas we had (self-manned photobooths), and basically provided a calming / knowledgable presence we could turn to for advice. She said that by now, she'd done more than 300 weddings -- at time of planning our own, that was 300 more than we had ever done. Sara was especially essential dur... Read more

  • Sara and her SL Events team was top notch! I was able to stay so relaxed and in the moment the day of our wedding because of Sara and her team. Sara, Stephanie, and Efren took care of all of the details so that my husband and I could just focus on having the time of our lives. Especially the day of, Brian and I were so happy to have Sara and her team there. Efren, in particular, was so attentive and just a true joy to be around. He took care of every detail from my veil and train to my tear-stained eye makeup after the ceremony and kept my husband and me laughing throughout the day. He was also my advocate when I needed a break from pictures or to escape from a conversation. Sara coordinated with all of the vendors and made fantastic recommendations throughout the planning process.

  • We used Sara and her company for Day Of Coordination services. Her and her team were wonderful. As I was interviewing wedding planners, I chose her because I liked her personality. You can tell she has experience, but she is also laid back and helpful during the sales process, not pushy or aggressive at all to her potential clients. Leading up to the day, she answered all of the questions we had, including some questions related to regular planning. About 4-6 weeks before she took over to reach out to all of our vendors. She contacted all of our vendors, created timelines, and was completely organized to ensure nothing small was forgotten about. On the actual day of, when her and her team went to work it was amazing. I thought I had my very own special operations/green beret team running around tackling anything that came up on our special day, with ear pieces in for communications, and the whole set up. It was awesome. She's worth every penny. The day went smooth and ... Read more

  • Given how hard Sara worked and how much she added to our wedding, I could not believe how reasonably priced she is. She started working with us in early April for July wedding day coordination. In early June, she stepped in to do design. She never batted an eye about the turn around, and flawlessly executed a beautiful space that stayed exactly within our budget. We did not want to spend too much money on flowers, and she designed a space with lots of greenery that did not feel cheap. She also added a number of classy touches: she encouraged us to welcome our guests ourselves and she made a board of escort cards that matched a family photo collage that was specially featured at our event. Efren, who worked with us on the day of the ceremony, was phenomenal. He busseled my dress, fixed my makeup, and helped our pre-wedding photos go off without a hitch. He fit in so well with my friends and family that everyone wanted to know more about him! Sara's firm yet not overbearing hand was an e... Read more

  • What can we say...Sara and her team are absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I live in London and wanted to have a yacht wedding in New York. We started planning our wedding with SL Events a year and a half ago, and Sara was with us every step of the way. Her bubbling personality, knowledge of wedding planning and vendors, and immense professionalism, allowed my husband and I to plan the wedding of our dreams! On the day of our wedding, Sara and her assistant provided unparalleled organisation and liaison not only with our family and friends, but with venue and vendors. This provided my husband and I with a stress free day, and the opportunity to fully enjoy our wedding. We would highly recommend SL Events for your wedding day planning!

  • We hired Sara Landon and her team for Day of Event Coordination. Excellent move! While my daughter and I enjoyed orchestrating all the details of the wedding, we could not possibly have conducted the affair on the day of. Sara helped answer numerous questions ahead of time and put together a timeline that allowed our day to flow seamlessly. Efren and Eric kept us calm, on point - we could NOT have enjoyed the wedding without the SLEvents team.

  • First of all, Sara Landon was the sweetest, most sincere person to work with throughout our wedding planning process. She listened carefully to all of our aspirations, and eased our concerns with feasible solutions. She respected our original vision, and helped us make it happen with style and grace. Having her as our day of coordinator, we started collaborating a month out, which is when she corralled our vendors and helped us finalize decisions. It is important to note that we had our wedding in the heart of NYC, which could have been riddled with hassles, but with Sara, was a breeze. When it came down to the day of the Big Dance, we literally didn’t have to worry about a thing. Sara and Efren, her amazing day of partner, handled all vendors, timelines and even our somewhat difficult families. They made sure that there was nothing that got in our way of having the best night of our lives. Looking back, it would not have been the smashing success that it was without Sar... Read more

  • We just had our daughter's wedding this past Saturday evening at Gotham Hall in New York City, and it could not have been more perfect. Everything went on flawlessly, my wife and I as well as the Bride and Groom got to enjoy the entire night and didn't have to worry or be concerned about ANYTHING! Why? Sara Landon and her staff she brought with her! No one comes close to the organization and follow through she performs. And on top of all this, she is a wonderful person. Sara even came out to our house on Long Island to transport boxes to Gotham for the wedding. The best money I've spent on the wedding was for SL events and Sara!

  • My wife and I are both wedding photographers, and between us we’ve been to more than 1,000 weddings …Sure, we knew a few things, but luckily one of the things we knew was how many behind-the-scenes aspects of putting a wedding together were hopelessly out of our depth. Out of the countless wedding planners we’ve known, we both chose to work with Sara Landon, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. Sara is everything we could want in a wedding planner. Part Leslie Knope (in her organization) and part Amy Schumer (in her candor and wit), she combines encyclopedic knowledge of wedding-day minutiae with an energetic personality that keeps it all fun and loose, the way weddings should be! She bore all the stress of the planning for us and let us enjoy ourselves throughout. And, when she needed to, she could fight fiercely for us … not only working out good deals with vendors, but making sure we weren’t subject to changing policies and attitudes. Sara was very responsive thro... Read more

  • If you want a wedding planner you can trust, have confidence in, put you at ease and make your dream wedding go off without a hitch....HIRE SL EVENTS! Sara is an extraordinary person who is truly passionate at what she does. We gave her full reigns to execute the wedding of our dreams and she pulled it off flawlessly. Any little hiccup that came up was quickly and quietly handled where my husband and I didn't even have a clue. My family all knew to take ques from Sara on how the day would run and it was a huge relief for us. At the end of the night, by some miracle (aka Sara!), all of our DIY decor and personal items from the venue made it back with us. We are talking 2 HUGE car loads full. Sara gave us the ability to actually enjoy our special day and not stress about the small stuff. Like the bride, me, totally forgetting to put on deodorant that day. Sara and her assistant were close by with a stick ready to go! We could not have asked for a more amazing planner for our wedd... Read more

  • Sara Landon is a consummate professional and a pure delight to work with! From our first phone conversation, we knew she was "the one." She loves what she does - and does it brilliantly. She is highly experienced, dedicated, energetic, attentive to details, savvy about contracts and scheduling, makes herself readily available, and consistently goes above and beyond. Her upbeat personality is also the perfect antidote during moments of stress and throughout the planning process. She responds quickly to emails/phone calls, finds brilliant solutions to problems, is great at dealing with a wide range of personalities, and beautifully coordinates all members of the wedding team. She also has excellent vendor contacts and works to maximize the results of your budget. Sara took us from anxious and overwhelmed to wonderfully happy and at ease. Working with Sara was a pleasure and felt like being with a trusted friend. Efren, her right hand, is an invaluable team member, who also has outsta... Read more

  • HIGHLY recommend SL Events to anyone looking for the highest quality and attentiveness in a wedding planner and/or day-of planner. Sara Landon was born to do this - my wedding day had some hiccups she notified me later of, but neither myself nor my 200 guests noticed a thing was out of place. She is incredibly reliable and every correspondence or specific detail promised to me, from a mock-up schedule to follow-up on a phone conversation, was delivered in a timely manner. She was just as committed to making sure my wedding was perfect as I was. Her leadership, friendship and collaboration during the planning process exceeded my expectations. OH, and all the vendors she referred me to also happen to be fantastic with their follow through and service. The woman's got great connections in the industry that she readily shares with you. 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!

  • SL Events came to me as a referral from my best friend who recently got married. My (now) husband and I had a call with Sara and immediately knew we needed her help with our wedding. It was without question the best decision we ever made. When you meet with Sara you'll see that she has amazing taste, but also has the ability to work within a budget. She was always providing recommendations on vendors to work with and always working in our best interest to get us the quality we desired at the price points we needed. Sara worked with us so patiently and carefully to make sure everything looked beautiful and and gave me the wedding we had always dreamed about. Her staff was also amazing. Diligent and on point throughout the wedding. Helping me with so many things such as my dress, announcements/emcee, and many more. Funny story actually was that my dress was dragging on the floor and getting dirty, so Efren, Sara’s second in command created the most beautiful bustle for my dres... Read more

  • I worked with Sara for the planning of my wedding starting a month out and then Efren for day-of coordination. Sara is extremely organized and knowledgeable. She has strong opinions and shared candidly when she thought something was a bad idea. If you are someone with a clear vision for your wedding, be ready to go along with her opinions or be assertive about what you want. Efren is also fantastic. He was my day-of point person and he was on time, high energy, on top of every detail, kept people on task, etc. He had a good balance of staying focused, having a good time, and making sure I was happy and relaxed. Highly recommend them both.
