Hey guys! Happy Tuesday–hope everyone has survived Hurricane Sandy! We have lots of friends and family in the Northeast but so far, everyone seems fine! I wanted to start today off with an introduction of come+together’s newest team member, Sarah!
Hi y’all! My name is Sarah Whitaker and I am beyond thrilled to completely immerse myself into the world of weddings: the good, the bad and the beautiful!
Originally from outside Syracuse in Upstate, NY, I graduated from St. Bonaventure University with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. Moving to Charlotte the year after graduation, I fell in love with this little city and couldn’t be happier to be a part of such an ever-growing community. Since I moved here, I have been working in corporate jobs, but always had a desire to let my creative juices flow, while still utilizing and showcasing my love of project management and organization.
The epiphany of my love for all things wedding started surfacing right before my first wave of girlfriends got engaged. We all knew this tidal wave would come, and priding myself on being ever-prepared, I started researching EVERYTHING. I couldn’t absorb enough about venues and music, menus and cakes, florists and bouquets, dresses and rings! There was so much information out there and so little time and I couldn’t help wondering how brides navigated through so many options during their engagement and planning process. In 2010, I made it through planning my own wedding (lots of help from Mom and Robert Mondavi) and it wasn’t two weeks past our wedding date when I realized I was craving the void of wedding mania. That was when I knew I needed to learn more about the planning as a business, not just a hobby of creating Powerpoint presentations and inspiration boards of ideas I loved.
I cannot even begin to tell how you how excited I am about the opportunity to work with and learn from Katrina, meet brides-to-be and their entourages and network with any and all vendors that have the same goal: provide the best service we can to make a bride’s vision not only come to life, but make it better than imagined!
