  • When I think of Sarah True and True Event, words cannot adequately describe how pleased my husband and I were with her level of service. I lived in TN, my fiance in NYC and Sarah was in CT the entire planning process, and it was completely smooth! We planned our wedding at the Chanler in Newport, RI in just two months. When I called Sarah to ask if she thought we could do this in that amount of time and with both of us out of state, she calmly assured us we could. She completely delivered and the wedding was completely what we wanted our day to be. I was completely relaxed the entire day knowing Sarah had all our bases covered. It was a bridal day come true. She also executed our theme and ideas flawlessly. Again, I cannot say enough good about True Event and Sarah True. She is a lovely person and a top notch professional!!

  • I was referred to Sarah True early on in our wedding planning process by a friend whose wedding she had helped plan. From our first meeting I was blown away by Sarah's talent and over all calm demeanor. I had no idea what 'theme' we wanted and by simply talking a for a few minutes Sarah created a vision that was more beautiful than I had ever pictured our wedding could be - and it was exactly what we were looking for. What's even more impressive is that she took this vision and actually made it come to life! There were a couple times through out the planning process where I felt overwhelmed and Sarah was readily available to talk any concerns over and basically solved whatever I was worried about. Also at our wedding there were two 'surprise' guests that we had to find seating for and Sarah handled it seamlessly. Needless to say I am super happy to have worked with TRUE Event. Sarah is an incredible planner and the members of her team like Caitlin are wonderful to work with as well. Fo... Read more

  • I would highly recommend Sarah and her team for planning a wedding. I hired True event and did not know them other than their website and referrals. I liked the work true event had done in the past so decided to hire them for my wedding. My wedding was at a private residence in Rhode Island and it required building the ceremony and reception from scratch everything from the tent, ceremony, linens, flowers, etc surpassed my expectations. I explained the vision and style I wanted to Sarah and Caitlin and they were able to create an enchanting evening. All of the vendors True event suggested were fantastic especially Hanafloral and Leila Brewster. The guests were commenting on the quality of the flowers, food and drinks for months! Her work exceeded my expectations and I would recommend True event to anyone looking for a wedding planner. The quality of their work was exceptional and even my guests were asking for the planners contact info!!! Thank you True event!

  • I needed a part time event planner to help me execute my 2-day destination wedding and I couldn't have been happier with True Event. Sarah and Caitlin were a pleasure to work with and they were prompt and accessible while planning my wedding remotely. The weekend went off perfectly with their flawless execution and I wholeheartedly trusted them to do so.

  • I don't think I can convey in words how wonderful Sarah True and her team at TRUE Event is. My husband and I planned our wedding from a distance as we wanted to be married in the hometown of his family. Having had limited access to the area, I was at a loss for where to go or who to turn to. I was provided Sarah's contact information by the people at our reception venue. I will forever call the day I contacted Sarah as the day my dreams began to come true. As a girl, I had dreamed of my wedding day for years, but I could never actually create a vision for what it looked like. Sarah and her team were instrumental in creating a beautiful setting with the most perfect personal and intimate touches. She was also able to direct us to so many of our vendors who are all equally as wonderful as Sarah and everyone at TRUE Event. Were there any flaws at our wedding? If so...we would have never known! The day-of coordination was fabulous and the flow of events was absolute perfection! ... Read more

  • Sarah True and her team at True Event went above and beyond my expectations for our wedding at the Ocean House in Watch Hill Rhode Island on July 20, 2013. Growing up I always called the view at the Ocean House, "a little glimpse of heaven" and Sarah, Caitlin, and her team were able to beautifully create our vision of an "old hollywood glamour wedding". During the planning of our wedding my husband was deployed and I was working at a demanding job in Washington DC, and really needed assistance with vendors having only spent summers in Rhode Island.Sarah and her team had amazing recommendations. True Event and her team were quick to to explain to us advantages and/or disadvantages in working various vendors, in addition to where vendors fell regarding payment, follow through, and reviews. In the end Sarah True and her recommendations outdid themselves. To this day we get compliments and many guests who ask, "where did you find your band", "what was the name of the person you u...

  • I couldn't have had a better experience with Sarah True and The True Event team. I am coming up on my second anniversary and get teary-eyed thinking back to the wonderful weekend. The stars aligned when we met Sarah. A few of my favorite weddings I had seen on Style Me Pretty were all by True Event. Then when we asked our wedding venue in RI for recommendations, she was at the top of the list. Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. From the first meeting, we felt a sense of comfort, as if we were working with one of our longest friends. She listened to what we were thinking, taking both of our thoughts and ideas into consideration as well as coming to the table with interesting ideas. She recommended vendors I would never have found on my own, and have since recommended to my friends in the midst of their own planning. Knowing how busy my husband and I were with work while planning the wedding from afar, Sarah took the initiative to constantly provide updates, f... Read more

  • When my now husband and I decided to have our wedding at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI, we were given a list of vendors directly from their wedding coordinator. True Events was on the list so I decided to call and get some information. Sarah could not have been sweeter and easy to talk to and we set up a face to face at her office in Madison. In the meantime, I checked her website and fell in love with the details and decor of the other weddings she had planned in the past. When we finally met there was an instant connection and her soft spoken, calming persona was exactly what a future bride would need by her side on her wedding day. We went through our initial vision of a beach wedding with a nautical theme and her excitment and ideas started pouring out that after 2 hours I was practically ready to get married the next day. Leading up to the wedding she provided us with a list of the best vendors in the area which allowed us to do our own research and utimitely make our own d... Read more

  • There really are no words that can appropriately express how incredibly happy I was with everything Sarah did for my wedding. As a designer myself, I was beyond impressed with Sarah's natural talent for design. She really inspires you, excites you, and is an amazing support throughout the entire process. She's creative in her approach and brilliant in her execution. She doesn't miss a beat and makes everything that can be stressful for brides seem like a piece of cake. She is so thoughtful, gives you so much of her attention and really makes you feel like you're her only client. It's when you see all her work over a wedding season that you realize how phenomenal she is because she does that for every bride. I don't know how she does it all! What really impressed me about Sarah was not only her talent and professionalism, but her ability to listen and visualize all the ideas running through a bride’s head and turn them into a sensational event. I was on a strict budget, and she was... Read more

  • Sarah is truely an amazing event/wedding planner. She is super creative. She listens to your,"the brides", vision and provides appropriate feedback to make a wedding day happen in style. She is highly organized and responsible. I had nothing to worry about which made me relaxed on the most important day of my life. Sarah has lots of connections which helps with finding vendors. Sarah is always available, even in June when it is the craziest time for weddings. Yeah.........Sarah!!!!!! I highly recommend her services and wish her a lot of luck in the future with making each bride happy.

  • Sarah True was non-responsive throughout the entire wedding planning process. I emailed her countless times and she took an average of 3-4 days to respond. She waited or forgot to contact vendors, and as a result, I lost out on my first choice items. She was condescending when I finally confronted her on her lack of follow through, and stated that I should just go with someone else if I wasn't happy with her services. Well, 2 months before the wedding and I had little choice but to just stick it out and contact vendors on my own. To add insult to injury, she attempted to take credit on her website for designing my wedding-which i did 100 percent on my own. when I noticed this on her website and asked her about it, she immediately changed it from event designer to event coordinator. Trying to take credit for the countless hours I spent designing my wedding is just classless in my book. I am glad that so many people have had good experiences with her, however, and I truly hope she has be... Read more

  • Sarah True and her staff were fabulous to work with. They knew what needed to be done and worked with me to make my daughter's dream wedding come true. She kept me calm when I got nervous. I am not always easy to work with but Sarah made it look easy.

  • Sarah True was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I was so appreciative of her calm, friendly and genuine disposition. I had a very clear idea of what I wanted the wedding to feel like and Sarah understood completely and helped to elevate the ambiance and decor to the next level. I truly could not be happier with how the day turned out- completely gorgeous and unique thanks to Sarah and her team. Sarah is the type of person you would want to be your best friend. It was so important to me to have vendors and professionals around me that I trusted and made me feel calm- she did exactly that. I give True Event an A+!

  • Hi everyone, I am a September 2011 bride that hired Sarah of True Events this past January to help plan my wedding. Given that I hired her largely based on reviews like the ones posted here, I think it's important that I share my personal experience with other brides as my experience was very different than the others stated here and, just four weeks before my wedding, we decided to stopped working together. To start, I was really excited to be working with Sarah and had high expectations. I had gone on her website, her blog, her facebook, etc and looked through all the beautiful pictures of her work. We spoke on the phone a couple of times and I called 3 of her references. Everything sounded great and I felt confident in my decision to hire her. From the minute I began working with Sarah, I made it clear that I had a very demanding job and while I would love to dedicate hours to planning my wedding, it just wasn't in the cards for me. As such, I was going to rely very heavily on h... Read more
