I am so excited at the opportunity to work with you on your upcoming event. It is my goal to always make you as the Couple or Host feel comfortable, confident & open to sharing your thoughts and dreams. I don't care if your a sarority girl who wants a princess wedding, a tractor driving hick marrying your country sweetheart or a tattooed grafitti artist that's finally found the one who truly gets you. No matter what your background, style or orientation if you are a fun, rad, loving person then I want to work with you!  I want you to feel like you are being supported by a close & trusted friend, not just some planner. Together we will create not just an amazing event but memories that will last a lifetime. I love planning rad events for rad people. Let’s get started!!

A Message from Sari

Sari photo stripI love, love and consider myself a realistic romantic. As much as I always wanted that “notebook moment” I knew I was the rule and not the exception…. That is until I met my husband. Our courtship and wedding was very untraditional, but very authentic to us. I want every couple to have a genuine wedding celebrating their love. Here at Obsessed Events we will help inspire you to either find or enhance your unique vision to help you create a true once in a lifetime love story. I have never been a look at me look at me kind of girl. So planning my own wedding knowing that I was going to be the center of attention was terrifying!  Going through that experience has given me such a strong passion to help others eliminate fear, feel comfortable & have the wedding that they want, not anyone else. I look forwarding to meeting you in person soon!
