Who Is Sarah?

Wedding coordinator & minister, Sarah is an internationally-acclaimed author, public speaker & human rights activist who got her start in the wedding industry in 2008 when she was a pastor in Los Angeles.

Determined to find a fulfilling career, she fell in love with weddings while serving her congregation. Since that time, she has coordinated and presided over hundreds of events - from elopements to 300+ guest full-service weddings.

In 2018, after settling in Troutdale, Oregon, she founded Sarah's Weddings to help couples get married their way.

Sarah is also the founder of the PDX Bride School Workshop, where wedding pro's teach couples how to come in under-budget when planning their own wedding day.

Human Rights! I believe marriage is a basic right - no matter your race, color, religion or background.

I help couples create a new beginning
for the rest of their lives.

When I was nineteen, my sister Emily was diagnosed with cancer. She was just ten years old. That year, I moved out on my own and built my side hustle to a 5-figure business to support my family while they battled for Emily's life.

I eventually sold it to travel the world as a minister. Ten years later, I'm on a mission to make it possible for every couple to have not just a beautiful wedding day, but a solid foundation for the rest of their lives.
