I love that I get to be a part of such a special moment in my client’s life while also getting a glimpse in to their world and meeting their wonderful families! It is such a pleasure when I get to take the reins and manage the details that can easily be overwhelming and stressful so that ultimately my clients can truly focus on the reason, the love and of course the PARTY!
The most important things in my life are my faith and family, and being intentional with my time whether by working on person development or serving others in the community.
I currently live in Belmont with my husband, Markus and our two fur babies Leo and Lyla.
Originally from the gorgeous New England state of Vermont, I love Ben & Jerry’s, REAL Maple Syrup and Cabot cheese on my apples! A lover of the lake, mountains and ocean, I am always up for an outdoor adventure or a quick weekend away.
My career in events started way back in High School when I worked on the banquets staff at The Equinox, a Luxury Collection Golf Resort and Spa. Despite the long hours, I absolutely loved working weddings and cried at every maid of honor/best man speech and still do today! In 2010 I received my bachelor’s degree in Sports Entertainment and Event Management from Johnson & Wales University, Charlotte. Since that time, I have gained over 10 years of experience in the industry working for companies within the NBA, AHL, NFL, PGA, NASCAR and the Olympics.
Combining my love for hospitality, passion for design and excitement for events, I founded Sarah Duckworth Events in 2018.
There are so many things I love about my career, but mostly it’s that I get to work in a growing community that’s all about people and relationships.
The thing that impressed me the most about Sarah was her ability to multi-task and think outside of the box. Every time we had a question, Sarah had the answer because she was 10 steps ahead of us and the few times we thought we had a crisis, she had a solution before the conversation ever ended. This made for a completely stress free planning process and allowed us to soak in each and every moment.
The day of the wedding was flawless. Literally, all we had to do was show up and everything was perfect. Sarah worked so hard that day and if it is even possible for one person to be in four different places at once, she was! We are still talking about our wedding day and so is everyone who attended. If there were any mishaps at all on the day of, we still have no idea about them and that is exactly how it should be.
Sarah is a delight to work with. I have worked with her on a few projects through the local Chamber of Commerce, and her attention to detail and creative ideas, keeps me calling her for more help. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family who are getting married. She connects personally with everyone she meets and treats them like family.
From day one of the planning process, Sarah was our rock. During our initial meeting she took notes as we described what our dream wedding would be. Over the next nine months, Sarah turned our dreams into a reality. She helped us hand pick each vendor as well as individual design elements which lead to a truly remarkable event. Sarah was extremely organized throughout the entire process and kept our budget in mind with each decision that was made. She worked extremely hard to ensure that the ceremony and reception were a reflection of our taste and personalities - even using items from our house to decorate for the cocktail party. We are now more than two weeks past our wedding but are still talking about how flawless it was.
