Sarah Kazemburg, Founder & Lead Planner
A lifelong DC-area resident with a background in business administration, project management and marketing, Sarah quickly found that wedding planning integrated her strongest abilities: planning and executing complex logistics, with her passion for design and creativity. She launched Sarah Kazemburg Events + Styling with the goal of providing a personalized experience; one that takes the guess-work and stress out of wedding planning and allows her couples to not only have fun with the process, but to be fully present for every moment of their big day.
With a special focus on event design, Sarah customizes each couple’s design concept to reflect their personal style, tastes and story. She loves including meaningful details that spark up conversation and remain a cherished memory far beyond the wedding day. Her work has been published by Washingtonian Weddings, Inspired By This, Baltimore Weddings, BRIDES and more.
On-site at events, Sarah is known for her calm and level-headed demeanor, impeccable attention to detail and finding quick solutions under pressure. She resides in Maryland, just outside of DC with her husband Michael and sweet maltese Moritz. When she is not planning or designing, you might find her working on a home decor project, hiking, taking a spin class, or dining out a favorite Mediterranean restaurant.
“Sarah is incredible. From the moment I first spoke to her about our wedding I knew she would have a unique and personalized approach and she really went above and beyond. Throughout the entire process she was diligent, thorough and creative. Our wedding was absolutely magical and came together better than we ever thought possible. A real added bonus to the fact that it all went so well is that I didn't have to worry about a single thing on the actual day! Sarah (and her team!) had everything under control and made sure every little detail went according to our plan, which allowed me to really enjoy every moment of the day. Since the wedding was in a tent at my parent's house it was especially crucial that we had someone thinking of the little details and Sarah didn't miss anything (and organizing a walk-through with all our vendors at one time was incredible). Every vendor she recommended was awesome and executed perfectly. We can't thank Sarah enough and would 100% recommend her to anyone!”

“From the very beginning Sarah understood the feeling that I wanted to evoke for my wedding, and the end result was nothing short of perfection. She was very helpful and invested throughout the entire planning process, and when it finally came, she made sure the day ran smoothly. I didn’t have to worry about a thing! Her easy going nature, responsiveness, strong connections with other vendors, and incredible attention to even the smallest detail, really made this day possible. My dream wedding could not have come to life without Sarah.”

"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!"

“FABULOUS! Hiring Sarah was the best decision I made in planning my daughter's wedding. From the venue to the ceremony details to the flowers to the table scapes and reception details -- everything was perfection. Sarah was so easy to work with and always available. I cannot imagine going thru the planning stages (which are daunting) without her guiding hand and expertise. I especially cannot imagine the wedding day without her direction. Sarah handled the vendors and made sure everything ran smoothly and on time, which allowed us to enjoy the most incredible day! When I see the pure joy in my daughter's face in all the pictures, I know all the work and effort was worth it -- and I owe all of that to Sarah.”

"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!”

Sarah created a wedding day that was elegant, timeless, and most importantly stress-free for us and our families.

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."
