Being the Mother of the Bride I could not be more pleased that we chose Sarah of Embark Event Design to be our Wedding Planner. Sarah was impressively on top of every detail from choosing venders, helping with the design details, and solving every question and hurdle we encountered. The wedding worked out beautifully with Sarah directing the entire event from helping the bridal party, arranging the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception. She alleviated so much stress and worry for us throughout the year from start to finish. It was incredible to us how she was prepared for every detail we encountered. Sarah handled all of the above with boundless energy, grace, sweetness, and a positive, delightful attitude throughout our entire wedding experience.

Embark Event Design is changing the status quo of the wedding industry in the Central Coast. Instead of being worried and stressed through your entire engagement, when you work with Sarah Strausser, founder of Embark Event Design, you will be confident that every detail is in place and you will actually enjoy the process of planning your wedding and be able to be at ease on your big day. She will facilitate your wedding staff with grace and ease, she will keep the environment positive through any bumps in the road, and you can fully trust her to get things done. The coordinator you choose to hire for your wedding really matters and makes a difference and I cannot recommend anyone better than Sarah Strausser! Thank you Sarah, so grateful for you and your passion for serving your clients.

Working with Sarah is an absolute honor. I noticed Sarah’s talent long before we worked on my event together. Her eye for detail and incredible organization skills is the foundation of what brings all of her work to life. There was never a time that I doubted the completion of a project or the reaching of a deadline with Sarah. Her calming and assuring persona set my mind at ease and allowed me to focus on other aspects of my week-long event. Words cannot describe what it was like to walk in to the venue the day of the event to see everything that she had worked so hard on, come alive. Sarah is with you from the initial consultation, to the final clean up at the end of the night and every moment in between. Sarah is much more than your event coordinator, she is a necessity to your team, and if you have the privilege to work with her, it will become impossible to imagine working without her.

Sarah stayed on top of everything and kept open lines of communication throughout. From our first call, she had such a positive and charismatic attitude. She was so easy to work with, had amazing relationships with all the best local vendors, and truly ensured our day went off without any issues. She truly executed the plans leading up to and on the big day flawlessly, all while keeping a positive and calm vibe. During the process, she took extra time to schedule countless calls and video visits, all while keeping the plan and vision on track. We could not have been happier with how the rehearsal and wedding days went overall. We are so happy we we the chance to work with Sarah and her lovely team. Thank you for making this so special!

Sarah is not an emerging wedding planner, she is fast becoming a leader in the field. We trusted her taste and the results were everything we imagined, plus more. Thank you, Sarah, for making our wedding the best we've ever attended (and so say our guests!)
