I'm Sarah Lizabeth
WEDDING PLANNER, FLORIST, VENUE OWNER, WEDDING NON-PROFIT CEO & FOUNDER, AUTHOR, SPEAKER AND CREATOR OF ONLINE WEDDING PLANNING PRODUCTS
Twenty years ago, I started my career in weddings. I was a helping a family member set up her wedding and a soon to be mother of the bride walked into the church and ask me, “How can I have this for my daughter’s wedding?” I timidly said, “I guess you can hire me?” With forty dollars in my bank account, I got a business license and started my business. I had no idea what I was doing. I didn’t have a plan. But I had a heart of service. Little did I know how many couples, family, and friends I was about to be given the opportunity to serve. I am so grateful for the one who first believe in me.
It takes more than
It takes passion and grit. I am passionate about serving others well. For as long as I can remember, I have loved event planning. The specific shift to impact the wedding industry came from a passion to serve others during an important and stressful time in their life. When I first started, I read all the books, took all the courses, and watched all the videos. Even after all of that, it wasn’t until I worked my first wedding where I learned about grit. I remember being out in the middle of nowhere tearing down a wedding by myself until 5am. (The wedding ended at 11pm) I broke down every chair and stacked them, I took down all the lights, cleaned off every table, took those tables down, stacked them and hauled all the trash. It was just me and the animals that met me on top of that hill that night. I watched the sunrise as I loaded everything into my car and drove an hour home. No one knew what I did by myself. No one knew how long it took me to tear down that wedding. No one thanked me for my work. I didn’t need that. I just needed the knowledge of giving a couple the best day ever that started their marriage and my career of selfless service to others. Fast forward to today, they have five sons and life is perfectly hectic. That is why I do what I do.
