Sarah, a former McKenna Katherine Weddings bride herself is a mother to a beautiful baby girl, a wife and former teacher. Sarah was born in Pennsylvania and moved to the sunny state of Arizona where she attended Arizona State University. Her favorite part of her own wedding day was doing one last dance with her groom after everyone left their reception. It was so intimate and something she said she will never forget. Sarah strives to give each of her couples their own special moment. Her favorite part of being a wedding coordinator is witnessing the groom's reaction after seeing his bride for the first time as she comes down the aisle. There is something so magical about that moment! You can always count on Sarah to not only be your coordinator on your day but also someone you can lean on. A former McKenna Katherine Weddings bride once said "Seeing the faces of Mckenna and Sarah made me instantly feel calm. To me, they symbolized seeing a lifelong friend in a crowd of 100s in the middle of a busy city. You don’t anticipate being nervous for your own wedding, but right before walking down the aisle, a nerve of excitement comes over you and trust me, their faces are the ones you want to see before you have the happiest moment of your life.
