Sarah Kazemburg, Founder & Lead Planner
As a lifelong DC area resident, I love this city and everything it offers. Prior to launching SKb Events, I graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and went on to have an eight year career in the legal services industry, supporting multiple attorneys in a fast paced litigation practice.While I excelled working under pressure and managing many moving parts, I was longing for a creative outlet.
I quickly found that wedding planning integrated my strongest abilities: planning down to the smallest details, with my passion for style, creativity and serving awesome couples. Today, I have planned, designed and executed weddings from 30 to 300 guests and everywhere in between. I adore my clients and I'm committed to making the planning process as fun, memorable and stress-free as possible.
I reside in Maryland, just outside of DC with my handsome husband Michael and our puppy maltese Moritz. Outside of work, I love hiking, spin classes, Anthropologie & CB2, Mediterranean food and Game of Thrones. But enough about me, I would love to hear about you!
"I had the best experience working with Sarah and would highly recommend her to any bride looking for a wedding planner! I came to Sarah with a venue and about a six month timeline until our wedding day. I explained my vision to Sarah that I wanted our room to look light, warm, and fresh despite the venues dark carpet. She promised me no one would notice the carpet and she totally delivered! Her design was everything I envisioned in my head but never would have been able to put together by myself. From the moment we had our first phone call I felt that she instantly got me, my husband and I as a couple, and what we wanted for our wedding. Sarah was incredibly detail oriented and organized throughout our entire planning process. She often asked questions to our venue and vendors that I don't think I ever would have thought of. On top of her professionalism Sarah is so kind and thoughtful. She made my husband and I feel so special throughout the planning process and when our wedding day came along she made sure our only job and worry was to enjoy the day and live in the moment as bride and groom while she handled the rest!"

"Without a doubt, hiring Sarah was hands down the BEST decision we made regarding our wedding! The second I met Sarah, I knew instantly that she 'got it' and thanks to her, our wedding weekend was everything we dreamed of and so much more. She was incredibly patient and immediately responsive, and her attention to detail kept me organized and tuned in while still eliminating so much stress just knowing she was there to rely on for advice and recommendations. A month before the wedding, she took over all vendor communication and timeline coordination, which was SO amazing. I was able to enjoy the weeks leading up to the wedding without stress or worry of forgetting anything, knowing she was on top of it. Thanks to Sarah, the wedding day seemed to magically come together while we could just relax and soak it all in, and it went absolutely perfectly. I cannot recommend her enough, and I can't imagine how I would have gone through this process without her. I'm genuinely sad it's over and wish I could have her for every aspect of my life :) THANK YOU, Sarah! You are the absolute best!

"Truly the best decision we made regarding our wedding was working with Sarah Kazemburg. She is professional, detail oriented, kind and thoughtful, fun to work with, and knowledgeable. Sarah made sure our wedding kept to our budget and helped keep us on a timeline even when life and schedules got busy. Sarah created a wedding day that was elegant, timeless, and most importantly stress-free for us and our families. Every vendor she recommended was excellent- from florals to makeup, hair, photography, music, cake and desserts, the list is endless! Sarah is absolutely amazing and I will always be thankful to her for giving us the most beautiful perfect day to begin our happily ever after."

"There's no way Megan and I could have done this without Sarah, and we wouldn't have wanted to. Having a wedding planner gave us peace of mind that we weren't going to miss anything important, kept us on schedule, and provided access to resources we wouldn't have known about otherwise. Having Sarah at the reception to keep things moving gave Megan and Zack the opportunity to have fun and enjoy the reception."
-Kathy, Mother of the Bride
"Leading up to the big day, Sarah made me feel completely at ease with her attention to detail and her ability to compose timelines. She helped me think through situations that I hadn't considered, and she made sure everything was set up the way she knew I wanted it to look... Sarah is everything a bride needs in a wedding planner - someone that is detail oriented, responsible, organized and reliable. We can't imagine using anyone but Sarah for our big day!"
