The Polished Principle

Consider nothing impossible, treat possibilities as probabilities.
Make promises you can keep. If you say it, mean it, do it.
Treat every person you meet with dignity and respect.
Be the most positive, enthusiastic person you know.
Listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly.
Laugh a lot. Good humor will fix most anything.
Think big thoughts and relish small pleasures.
Commit yourself to constant improvement.
There is no substitute for hard work.

Where do we even begin? Well, one, our wedding probably wouldnt have happened if we didnt have you. Or, it would have, but with gross food, no tent or bathrooms & it would have rained. You were the perfect mix of hustle & kind. We are so grateful for all of the hard work you put into our wedding day.

By far the best vendor of our entire wedding experience! Working with Sarah was the best decision we made throughout our entire process. She was so detail oriented and organized, and made our planning journey so much less stressful. Because of her depth of experience, she was able to direct us to lots of other vendors with a solid reputation and they all delivered. I would highly recommend anyone who is considering a wedding planner to do it, and to use A Polished Plan. Especially with a tented wedding, there is a lot more planning that goes into a wedding than meets the eye. Our guests have been giving us really great feedback on how seamless everything was from start to finish and even saying it was "the best wedding they have ever been to"! That is definitely a testament to A Polished Plan. We would have been completely lost without Sarah. Thank you times a million!

Sarah is an expert in her field and makes the whole wedding planning process fun.

Our ceremony and reception were at two different locations about 30 minutes away from each other, both were outdoor and neither had power or the normal amenities that come with a standard venue (including bathrooms). So Sarah had to create both venues from the ground up.

This takes a tremendous amount of coordination, a deep knowledge of the event planning industry and the foresight to think of everything you need before you realize you even need it.

But not only does she have the attention to detail required to pull of a polished wedding, she is creative. I loved bouncing ideas off of Sarah and having her build on them. Walking into our tent on the day of our wedding, we were truly in awe of how Sarah had brought our vision to life and beyond. She also introduced us to incredible vendors that never would have found on our own.

What I loved about working with Sarah best is her calm demeanor, with Sarah there are never problems, only solutions. On our wedding day, I felt completely relaxed and so did our families, because we knew that Sarah and her team had every detail under control.

We highly highly recommend Sarah and are so thankful that she was a part of our day.

I was skeptical about hiring a wedding planner at first not knowing if it was worth the money or not. I can now say that hiring Sarah as our wedding planner was the BEST money we spent on our wedding! My fiancé and I both have very intense, time consuming jobs and Sarah took so much stress off my plate during the planning process. I had a pretty strong vision for what I wanted on my wedding day and Sarah helped bring everything to life flawlessly. She is creative, has amazing taste and knows how to manage logistics and execute a plan. She's also super sweet and fun to work with. Love you Sarah!!

Sarah was a dream! I reached out to her a few months into my planning process when I realized I wouldn't be able to do everything having to do with planning and executing a wedding on my own!

After our first phone conversation I was confident Sarah and I would make a great team. She did not disappoint! Sarah was so helpful and full of ideas throughout the planning process and beyond organized - obviously super important when there are so many moving parts! We were in constant contact throughout the planning by email, text, phone conversations and meeting in person.

I fell more in love with Sarah and A Polished Plan on my wedding weekend. She helped me with all last minute necessities so I could relax and enjoy the celebrations and was on point with every aspect of our rehearsal and wedding. I never once worried about anything on our wedding day because I knew Sarah and her team had it handled. Our wedding definitely would not have been the same without her and I wouldn't have been the sane, stress free bride she allowed me to be!

"We’re still basking in the glow of an absolutely beautiful wedding weekend. Thank you so much for all that you did to make it so successful and memorable. David asked me yesterday if there was anything I would have changed or done differently and I couldn’t come up with a single thing. He then asked me what was the most crucial element of the whole process and, without hesitation, I replied Sarah Taggart…."

"Sarah was hands down one of the best decisions my husband and I made while planning our wedding. I work in the design world so Sarah really had her hands full with me but she was able to take all of my (numerous) DIY projects and really give us the wedding of our dreams! (She even took home the table numbers I couldn't finish the night before the wedding and cut them out of foam core and spray painted them for me - they looked fantastic!!) The biggest compliment we received from most of our guests was how "us" the wedding felt and I know we couldn't have pulled it off without Sarah!"
- Rachel & Ben
"My husband and I met with Sarah this past October for a "non-wedding wedding party" that we wanted to have in June. We told Sarah about a cool art-deco inspired hotel in South Beach where we'd stayed, and said we wanted a party that recreated the vibe around the hotel’s pool area. She took our simple idea and ran with it, and we ended up with an absolutely stunning, cool and fun party that our guests are still raving about. Sarah's attention to detail is awesome. Everything from the invitations to the table linens to the bar design reflected the theme of our party beautifully, which is what made the event so memorable. Our party was perfect from beginning to end."

"I remember talking to Sarah over the phone over 18 months ago for the first time. Among all the wedding planners I had emailed/talked to, she was the only one that noticed in my email signature that I am in medical school and what this means in terms of my inflexible schedule. This attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the amazing job she's done for us since that first phone call! Sarah has been instrumental in helping us plan our dream wedding!"

"How blessed we were by you, Sarah, to have a truly outstanding, talented event planner & a very lovely, special person all wrapped into you! Thank you for everything including beautiful weather! We are all so grateful to you."
- Brett & Jay
"Whenever I was feeling overwhelmed or unsure about parts of the planning (like gathering addresses and making seating charts, no fun!) Sarah was there to cheer, support, and give advice. Most importantly, she put together the most beautiful wedding we could have asked for. “They” say that your wedding is supposed to be one of the best days of your life, and for us, it really was, thanks to Sarah and A Polished Plan!"
