I started DJing 26 years ago. I began with a radio show in 8th grade which continued throughout my high school career. My business has been evolving since I opened in 2007.

With an insatiable passion for music and events, I've DJed around 1550 dance floors!

My behind-the-scenes work in theatre & film and my details-focused administrative roles in education & finance fueled my desire to expand my knowledge in the planning side of the wedding industry.

I founded this LLC in 2017 with the mission to help couples be present and party at their amazing wedding.

As a full-service wedding planning company, we provide all of the tools and resources you need at your fingertips.

We offer an initial consultation to understand your vision. We then draft a proposal that outlines our services and estimated costs. Once booked, we guide you through the process with your easy-to-use virtual portal!

The investment in our wedding day planning is 14% of your final budget. Because wedding plans evolve, the pricing adjusts to account for the complexities of different elements and to fairly reflect our work. 

e.g. A wedding with a budget of $90,000 will account for a planning budget of $12,600. We will always be clear on communication about expectations.

Sara is the best! She is incredibly down to earth and extremely organized! If you are someone who has specific music tastes and doesn't want the same wedding songs played at your reception, Sara is your DJ! We attended multiple weddings with the cheesiest DJs and wanted 1000% the opposite for our special day. Sara provided a fantastic experience and embraced our weird music tastes. Would hire her again and again if we could!

the best experience for music lovers!

So basically, they are magicians.

I was really worried about being able to let go of details- months of planning and we were just handing it off. Very stressful! But Sara and the team handled it for us. When there was something out of place they got it fixed immediately. Sara and Dan also coordinated an EPIC dance party at the same time.

- Ashley & Dan

We immediately felt a connection with Sara's intentional way of supporting the whole process, with the range of intense experiences it can bring. She's in it with you. We hired her first as our DJ, then saw she was capable of even more. She helped us bring some needed shape to our dreams and then was there to help us execute. She helped us bring our music together. She's "working" your wedding on many levels with her whole self, and all in a nurturing, open, and ultimately helpful ways.

seriously, go with sara.

- Joel & Emily

ABSOLUTE BEST investment you could make in your wedding!

My wife and I are counting every lucky star that we hired Sara for our wedding day. The day before our wedding, we had to change almost every single detail because of COVID-19, and Sara didn’t miss a single beat, remembered and highlighted what was important to us on our big day, and kept our spirits high! She is incredibly organized, professional, and really, seriously was SO mindful of every single detail. Her DJ skills are ✨amazing✨, and she played all our favorites and more—it really kept the energy up and joyful.

On our wedding day, Sara and Elise came early in the day, and we were struck by how friendly and genuine they were, and how well they worked with all the people they were meeting for the first time! They were also excellent at handling some of our more controlling bridesmaids :) — stepping back to let them make suggestions, but taking control in the end.

- Flavia & Jeremy

the wedding went off without a hitch, and we couldn’t have done it without them!
