Golden Poppy Events is a boutique, full service luxury event planning agency devoted exclusively to creating unforgettable weddings and extraordinary parties for very special life occasions. We're based in Southern California (the Golden Poppy State!) but we happily travel to other locations around the world to help plan, design and realize memorable events that reflect the unique visions of our discerning clients.
A native of Toledo, Ohio, Sara made the trek to Ithaca, New York to attend the Cornell Hotel School, where she earned her bachelor's degree in Hotel Administration. During her tenure at Cornell, Sara was selected for prestigious internships with Union Square Hospitality Group in New York City and Lettuce Entertain You in Chicago. She also earned her chops in the kitchen as a teaching assistant in culinary theory (which her husband, Neil, really appreciates to this day!)
When it came time to leave Cornell Sara traveled to Southern California to begin her career as an event management executive, gaining years of experience working at renowned luxury hotels in Los Angeles including Montage Beverly Hills, The London West Hollywood and the Hotel Bel-Air. With a unique combination of design creativity and impeccable organizational skills, Sara has successfully planned and managed hundreds of five-star events for discerning clients and celebrities alike.
