Everyone knows that April showers bring May flowers but we chose to take our chances and hold our wedding at home in our backyard. One of my biggest concerns was how could we possibly accommodate over 100 people for a wedding ceremony and reception given the average size of the yard. We hired Jacquie Duggan with Stunning @ Brilliant Events a little more than three months prior to our date. How could I know that this would be by far THE BEST CHOICE I would make for my special day? It began with a visit to our home and an assessment and layout of ceremony, tent, table and seating arrangement, bar set up and pianist. . We met numerous times along the way. This include a tasting with our caterer, china selection, linen selection, floral arrangements and more. Jacquie guided my fiancé and I through every detail along the way from the wedding programs, signage directing our guests to
the back yard, marriage license and so much more.
Sara and her team are absolutely incredible. My now husband and I planned our wedding from the Midwest, and we certainly could not have pulled off our wedding day without Stunning & Brilliant Events. I knew we would hire Sara from the first moment I spoke with her on the phone. Sara is a great communicator and promptly returned all of my calls and emails. She followed up with vendors, eased my nerves, and took care of all the "little" details that truly made our day perfect. I could not speak more highly of Sara and Stunning & Brilliant Events.
If you want a beautiful, tasteful, and elegant wedding, Sara McCall with Stunning and Brilliant Events is absolutely the must have person to plan your wedding. Sara’s exquisite taste and wealth of experience made our wedding so incredibly beautiful that we are still getting calls from friends and family to get Sara's number so they could plan their events with her. Her unconditional help and advice, any time of the day and night, her unbelievable connections that helped us get the lowest prices on everything, and her amazing knowledge and love for this business absolutely overwhelmed us. She became a friend for life. Our wedding celebration was held at our beach front property on the Golden Mile in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Hiring Sara and her staff was the best decision we made in planning our daughter's wedding. Since we are local to Myrtle Beach, we already had picked most of our vendors and knew we wanted the reception at our home. Even though Sara was dealing with an outside reception at a private home, using a caterer and florist with whom she had no experience, everything went off without a hitch. Sara did a site visit and immediately took our ideas and not only made them reality, but also used her own vision that complemented ours perfectly. These ladies are totally organized and unflappable, right down to dispatching two baby snakes who crawled out of the ivy and under a table about two hours before the guests arrived! The evening of the event went off without a hitch, entirely due to Sara's calm attitude and quiet competence.
Sara, Tia, and Kristen at S&B made my wedding day an absolute perfect and stress free day. I can honestly say I would not change one thing about my wedding day! During the wedding planning, Sara made everything go so smooth and I had total confidence in her opinions and suggestions. The rehearsal and day of could not have been any more perfect. My family and friends have all commented on how organized and professional the girls were. My husband and dad have even bragged how wonderful they were to work with! The girls checked on us throughout the week prior and even stopped by our house on the day of the wedding to make sure I was stress-free and enjoying every minute of the day! I could not have chosen a better team to work with in planning my perfect fairy tale wedding!
Sara and her team at Stunning & Brillant Events, LLC should absolutely be working at EVERY brides wedding. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her and her team and there's no way I could have made it through the wedding day without them.
All brides question after the wedding on whether they would choose some vendors again, and without a doubt, I would choose Sara and her team again and again. They're professional, organized, personable, realiable, and one step ahead of everything at all times.
Plus, when the wedding party is nervous and anxious, Sara is completely calm and keeps everything running smoothly on schedule. You can put your full trust in her to decorate anything you need and have every vendor on schedule so you never have to worry about anything.
I had numerous comments from my wedding party about how incredible they were to work with. My dad even told me recently that he was so impressed with everything that he'd do it all again just as it was.
Basically, if you're getting married in the near future, you're crazy not to hire them. I recommend them to anyone who will listen.
Sara and Kristen from Stunning and Brilliant events are amazing. I don't know what I would have done without them especially the day of my wedding. Sara helped with design, decor and all my questions throughout the year of our engagement. My wedding day was so wonderful and stress free not to mention so organized. I didnt have to worry about anything and enjoyed the best day of my life. I would highly recommend at least the day of package to brides planning their wedding. Sara and Kristen you ladies rock!!!Thank you so much for everything you did for us!Our day would not have been the same without you!
Let me start off by saying I loved working with Sara and her team at S&B Events. I originally tried to plan my 9/14/13 Pawleys Island, SC wedding on my own from Boston, MA, which proved to be entirely overwhelming. I had no idea who to use for vendors, and I really didn't have anyone in the area to bounce wedding-related questions off of. I found Sara online and quickly set up a phone call to see if she would be a good fit. From that first phone call, I knew Sara would be the perfect wedding planner. I booked her for full planning services, and I do not regret one bit of it. She knows so many wedding contacts in the area and was able to set up meetings for my husband and me with several vendors so we could get a comparison of services provided. Sara was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls and was more than willing to meet in person each time I traveled to SC to do wedding planning things. She was able to take my very high level vision of what I wanted our wedding to look like and executed it beyond my expectations. In the days leading up to our wedding date, I was way more relaxed than I probably would have been if I had not had Sara's help. I highly recommend Sara and her team to anyone looking for wedding planning services in the Carolina area!
If you are looking to genuinely enjoy the wedding planning process and not be stressed out on your wedding day you need not look any further than Stunning and Brilliant Events. My mother and I attempted to plan my wedding on our own and about 2 months in we decided we were in over our heads. We reached out to our vendors and our florist gave us Sara's name with Stunning and Brilliant Events. From the first conversation with Sara I knew she was going to be a rock star. She is extremely organized, prompt, creative and overall just someone who is fun to be around. We had a lot of the bigger decisions made with our wedding but it's the little decisions that are the hardest and Sara navigated our ideas and desires with ease. We also had a few kinks in the process (nothing to do with Sara) and instead of having me call to fix them Sara took the bull by the horns and demanded things be fixed or found me another vendor who was just as good if not better than the first. I felt like the whole process was truly FUN and I had time to enjoy my engagement and not be constantly worried about the wedding. Sara also has the ability to build great relationships with the vendors - lucky for me she already had great relationships with all of mine prior to my wedding, but there were a few that she didn't know and am confident they would strongly recommend her in the future based off of my wedding. The day of my wedding went off without a hitch - she had it planned to the minute and I felt like I got to squeeze every minute and moment out of my special day because we had Sara and her amazing assistant Kristen. Sara pays so much attention to detail the she and Kristen actually purchased an outfit in my wedding colors to wear to my wedding - how cute is that? I absolutely adore Sara but from a business standpoint she is OUTSTANDING - she exceeded all my expectations and to reiterate made my special day one that I enjoyed and will never forget!
We could not be more thrilled with how our big day came to fruition and Sara's attention to detail and her organization skill made the whole process a breeze for myself and more importantly, my mother. After hiring Sara and her team, my mother was able to enjoy the day as much as anyone else.
Sara is extremely poised and professional and was able to manage all of our vendors. Even more important, she helped us realize what we didn't know about planning a wedding. Her creative eye and design acumen really kicked the event up a notch. We never would have thought about uplighting or linens or the creative and personal wedding favors that she suggested.
Stunning & Brilliant Events made the wedding process stress free and we could not have enjoyed the day more. Thank you!
Could not have planned my daughter's wedding without this wonderful team of experts. They listened to our ideas and helped us expand upon them. Everything ran like clock work. The vendors were lined up and everything was there on time. Anything we didn't care for was addressed with other options with no problem. My daughter's wedding was very complicated to included horses and wedding on the beach. The day of the wedding Sara and her team made sure everything was in place and on schedule, even checking the weather and starting early to avoid the rain.
If you don't want to worry about a thing on your wedding day, then contact this expert team. Thank you Stunning and Brilliant Events for helping me make this day so special.
Sara and her staff at S and B are fabulous! My husband and I found our wedding events to be easy and so much fun because S & B did everything. They are creative, fun, and easy to work with! It will be the best money you invest in! I highly recommend using S & B for you wedding day! Sara rocks!!!
Sara and her team at S & B Events were friendly, energetic and organized. My husband and I planned our Myrtle Beach wedding from Boston and we were a little nervous about how everything would come together. Once we decided to work with S & B Events, those worries were gone. From the moment we met Sara in her office, she was excited to be a part of our special day and enthusiastic about our ideas. We went with the "Stunning Day" package and felt that Sara went above and beyond just “the day of.” She emailed us often to check in on the planning process; she was always fast to respond to any of our questions or concerns. Sara also put together a weekend agenda for vendors and the wedding party, communicated with the vendors during the month leading up to the wedding, and organized the rehearsal. Sara and her team gave us peace of mind and brought everything together beautifully! On the morning of the wedding, we had a laundry list of things that needed to be set up (center pieces, chair ties, favors, ceremony decorations, etc). Sara and her team brought everything together and didn’t miss a single detail. They exceeded our expectations beyond anything that we could have ever imagined. It was so nice to have Sara and her team there to make sure everything happened smoothly. It took the pressure off of our families so that everyone could relax and enjoy themselves. The day truly was Stunning, our family is raving about the weekend, and we are SO thankful for S & B Events!!
To be honest, we weren't very excited about the work ahead of us when starting to plan our wedding. We reached out to Sara and she helped us get excited about the big day and plan our unique wedding from start to finish. We had some special requests and she was able to make everything happen exactly as we hoped - from dueling pianos to clear acrylic custom made table tops with flowers inside. She listened to our ideas and also made suggestions based off our style - like a swirl ceremony where all of our guests sat in a circle around us during the ceremony. Our wedding was outside at our home and we lost power the day of the wedding. Sara stayed calm and took the lead on getting us a generator before the guests arrived. We couldn't be happier with Stunning and Brilliant Events and would absolutely recommend them to any bride and...
Sara is truly a gift from God. She took something small and made it absolutely grand!! When you use her services you better believe we will have a remarkable day to remember. She is there every step of the way to guide and help you during the wedding process. She is so phenmoinal that I didn't meet her until 5 days before my wedding!!! My husband and I live in Pittsburgh, PA and she is located in Myrtle Beach. We did all of the planning by phone, email and Pinterest. I can say she worked with our very small budget and made us feel like royalty!! She is very organized, creative, flexible, and she is focused on giving the bride and groom what they envision for their wedding day!! I love Sara and hope to use her services again for the renewal of our vows in the years to come. I highly recommend Sara Barnhill you won't be...
SARA BLEW OUR EXPECTATIONS OUT OF THE WATER! She is extremely detail oriented, outgoing, and so much FUN to work with! I have a very difficult time seeing the big picture but she kept insisting that everything would be beautiful and that it was! Sara took the time to research and seek out some of the best vendors saving us time and money. She was accommodating and ALWAYS available. Rehearsal was fun and moved right along - Our bridal party was impressed with her Wedding Day timeline as it pinpointed where everyone had to be and when. She also included all of the important addresses and phone numbers to make sure everyone was on time and at the right place :) Our wedding day was stress free and so enjoyable. She and her team took care of any last minute requests and made sure that Dan and I worried about nothing but enjoying our friends and family! Thank you...
Throughout the entire planning process of our destination wedding in Pawley's Island, SC on 8/2/12, Sara and the team at Stunning & Brilliant were BEYOND helpful!Planning a South Carolina wedding from Missouri was scary at first! But after hiring Stunning & Brilliant, the ideas and dreams I had in my mind started to become a reality. Sara has connections with wonderful vendors for every aspect of planning a wedding- from rentals, to caterers, to our wonderful harpist!The timelines and information packets they provided helped keep us on track in the months leading up to the wedding, and on the rehearsal and wedding days... what a relief to send everyone with questions or issues to the professionals, instead of having to worry over small details. Another huge advantage was having constant email communication. Anytime I had a question, I recieved an email back very promptly- usually same day. Not only were Stunning & Brilliant Event's services professional and efficient, but it was a joy to work with such a kind, friendly, and energetic person as Sara.
My advice to anyone planning a wedding in the Myrtle Beach area... HIRE STUNNING & BRILLIANT, EVENTS!!! =)
Stunning & Brilliant Events made our day SEAMLESS, Organized & Perfect!
Sara and her assistants did an outstanding job for my daughters wedding!!! I could not have asked for a more thorough, attentive, and caring/sooo sweet wedding planner!!! Every last detail and then some was planned and prepared for leaving us stress free and able to enjoy the wedding weekend!! From the wedding preparation, dress rehersal, and to all the wedding events, Sara and her assistants were absoulutly Amazing!!! I wouldnt even consider another wedding planner but Sara!!!!!!
The absolute best planner you could possibly have!!! Sara goes up, over and beyond your expectations!!
My husband and I planned a Myrtle Beach wedding all the way from Pittsburgh. Sara was truly a God send during the entire process! We emailed almost daily, and she was always quick and helpful with her responses. We booked most of our vendors with Sara's help, and each and every one of them were better than I could have imagined. I did not stress for a second on the day of the wedding. Sara and her team set up our entire ceremony and reception just as we had imagined! Everything went smooth and our guests had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Sara and Stunning and Brilliant Events to anyone planning a wedding! Especially consider hiring her if you are out of state! You will get more than your investment back! Thanks again, Sara!!
As a mother of the bride I thought Sara was perfect! Yes, 5 stars in every category. She helped my daughter plan; allowing her to express her own individuality, and assisting in so many ways, from the biggest, "I can get a tent, I have peeps," when it started raining the day before, to the smallest details that made all the difference. Flexible? You betcha! We threw last minute requests at her and she handled it with grace. And best of all her poise, composure, and confidence rubbed off on the bride so she could relax and enjoy her day. If you want a stunning and brilliant wedding hire Sara and you won't be disappointed.
Sara was our weekend wedding coordinator! She helped us execute every detail I had made and made every vision of my wedding day come to life! What was a surprise help was the 3 weeks before. Sara contacted the other vendors and took care of my wedding from there on out and as much as I didn't think I needed it before, I can't think of what I would have done without her! Our getaway car flooded a couple weeks before the wedding and she was able to find a new one in the area and book it for us! And the best part was the to-go boxes of our food she prepared for us, since of course we didn't get to eat! AND our cake topper had a list of instructions ;) I can't thank you enough Sara for everything you did and I will recommend you to everyone!
Sara was a godsend! Planning a wedding while having a full-time job is incredibly stressful, and one of the first things to go (at least for me) was my organizational skills. Someone told me once that is called 'bride brain'. Regardless of what you want to call it, Sara was there to keep me focused, on task and timely. It was fabulous having her around to coordinate with all of our out-of-town members of the wedding party, and she consistently thought of and remembered to do things I would have forgotten without her (including eat at the recepption :) ) She's incredibly professional and I would highly recommend her planning services.
Sara and her team went above and beyond from the second I hired her. Our wedding went of without a hitch because of her and I recommend her to any and every one. She truly made my reception stunning I couldn't have asked for a better day.
Sara was so easy to work with! She made my wedding perfect and so memorable. Every detail was perfect and so beautiful. I could not have been happier.
Sara is an amazing wedding planner! Top notch! Everything is wonderful! All the vision i had, she was able to put it in!
She is always available, ready, answer and she give her real opinion!
You feel dealing with a friend and not with a vendor! If you went Class, Perfection and top notch, Event and Brilliant Event LLC!
With a accountant point a view, a wedding planner can save you a lot of money, a lot of stress, wrinkles and grey hair!
I wish I could get an other event right now just to deal with Sara!
Sara you are the best!
Sara at Stunning and Brilliant Events should be the first hire you make after you get engaged and purchase your dress! She is wonderful and on top of everything. She was always available by phone or email. NEver had a problem answering any questions or suggesting ideas if you needed help. She will make your wedding the most brilliant and stunning event ever, thus she lives up to the name of her business! She took an early disaster at our reception and nicked it in the bud and made our reception the best ever!!! Thank you Sara for all you did!
I cannot begin to express how valuable Sara and her staff are to any bride and groom that are planning a wedding. Stunning and Brilliant Events lives up to its name! Sara Barnhill puts forth amazing organizational skills, a great eye for color and decoration, and superb service. Even four days post-wedding while we were disputing over a vendor payment, she was there for us. We could not thank her enough for the amazing job she did on our wedding and how understanding she is throughout, what is often considered, a stressful process. Sara made every detail perfect with unparalleled accuracy and professionalism.
Stunning and Brilliant Events would be an asset to any bride on her way down the aisle! This former bride would recommend Sara to anyone and will continue to praise her work and provide recommendations to anyone planning events large and small. A five star rating curbs this event planner's knowledge and quality of service, and if there were more stars provided I would not hesitate to express my happiness in her services.
You will not be disappointed.
Thank you to Sara from Stunning and Brilliant events! Thank you so much Sara for your assistance provided prior to and on the day of our wedding. Stunning and Brilliant events did such a wonderful job and exceeded our expectations on every detail. Everything ran smoothly and on time. I had many guests come to me after the wedding and say what a wonderful job she did; she never stopped cleaning and helping the whole day! Thank you Sara and her crew from Stunning and Brilliant events for making our day everything we wanted and more!
