Hi, I’m Sara

And I’m the owner and certified wedding planner behind 9TwentyEight

I’ve always been someone who pays special attention to the small details, so the world of weddings seemed to be a natural fit for me. A local wedding planner gave me the gracious opportunity to intern for her, and I’ve been in love with love ever since. I received my wedding planning certification from CSUEB, and in 2015, 9TwentyEight was born.

My goal is to make the wedding planning process as stress-free as possible, so that you are able to enjoy every moment of this special time with family and friends. I’ll gracefully guide you through the planning process, to not only produce a wedding that speaks to who you are as a couple, but what you’ve always hoped for on your wedding day. My attention to detail and genuine love for what I do will ensure that you feel calm and confident knowing your big day will run flawlessly.

I believe in quality over quantity. In order to build a meaningful relationship with my clients, I take on a limited number of weddings per year, focusing on only one wedding per weekend.
