We entrusted Sarah of NY Engagements with our wedding because we knew from the moment we spoke with her that she was the best person to coordinate our wedding. And what a wedding it was! We were planning a jam-packed fusion wedding at Oheka Castle that entailed two ceremonies (Hindu and Episcopal), two outfit changes, two photo sessions, two cocktail hours, 230 guests, and 20+ vendors. Sarah, with her intense focus and off-the-charts attention to detail, confidently jumped in and planned what was hands-down the best day of our lives. Not only is Sarah very good at her job—having both tremendous experience in the wedding industry and a work ethic like no other—she has a thoughtfulness and kindness about her that makes us feel lucky to have worked with her.

As our coordinator, Sarah worked tirelessly to create the most wonderful wedding we could have ever imagined. Sarah carefully guided us through the planning process, going over Excel spreadsheets, compiling to-do lists, quickly responding to emails, and staying on top of every detail. She had every aspect of our event thought through (really—everything!) and every plan set into motion.

Sarah and her team executed what both our venue and several other vendors described as the most logistically complicated wedding they had ever seen. Because of Sarah, I was able to spend my wedding day completely in the present. I felt so confident in the strength of her talents that every time I saw Sarah behind the scenes, I immediately felt at ease.

Sarah has high standards of excellence in every aspect of her business and it showed in every way on our wedding day. She proved to me what I already quickly gleaned from our first conversation: she can do it all. Whether planning the intricacies of two weddings in one day or thinking through creative ideas for our special day, Sarah made it all happen.

Working with Sarah was the best decision we made during our wedding planning process and I recommend you do the same.

Sarah at Engaging Floral Designs made my wedding dreams come true. I came to her with a pretty loose description of what I envisioned for the reception and ceremony space and what I wanted for my bouquet and the flowers for the bridal party. When I walked into my wedding I was blown away with how perfect the space looked. Sarah met and surpassed my vision for all floral aspects of my wedding. She worked very hard to make sure that I had everything I wanted on my special day. She is very professional and responsive when planning the event. I can't imagine having worked with anyone else! I would highly recommend Sarah for any event.

Sarah and her team were amazing and really helped to make the last month or wedding planning as stress-free as possible! They definitely know what they are doing : ) We hired Sarah as our day-of coordinator, and as part of that she also helped us figure out many of the final details leading up to the big day. She had a great system that walked us through our wedding day and really helped us think about every detail so there were no surprises day-of! We felt incredibly well cared-for day of, and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Sarah was so sweet and professional, and we would highly recommend her and her team!

We used Sarah Lusardi/NY Engagements as our wedding coordinator for our wedding in November 2013. She was fabulous! We chose to hire a wedding coordinator for two reasons -- 1) to lessen our wedding workload before the wedding, and 2) so we would not have to worry about the details on our wedding day.

Sarah helped us keep on top of all the minutiae by staying extremely organized and tracking every last detail. She was full of helpful advice about all sorts of things (which she offered when asked, never imposing her opinions on us otherwise) based on her considerable experience running weddings, and her familiarity with the Beacon area. She worked seamlessly with all of our vendors and was always professional and friendly.

The biggest praise we can offer Sarah is that we had a ton of fun on our wedding day. We did not have to worry about a thing because we knew all the details were handled. Likewise, our close family and best friends were not saddled with logistical responsibilities other than the ceremonial ones we gave them -- Sarah, her assistants and the vendors she helped coordinate were on top of everything. Sarah made sure we were where we needed to be when we had to be somewhere, she made sure we ate, and she worked behind the scenes with our venue, the DJ and our photographer to keep everything running on schedule. We truly felt like guests at our own wedding reception-- we danced, ate, and soaked up the love in the room.

Sarah Lusardi of Engaging Floral Designs is an absolute dream to work with!! We initially contacted a few floral designers for our Hudson Valley wedding but after speaking with Sarah and seeing her work we immediately booked Engaging Floral Designs for our big day. Sarah has a great eye for beautiful arrangements and was instrumental in translating the vision we described for our rustic, fall wedding into a reality. She is clearly an expert in this field and was able to suggest some great, personal touches from the ceremony all the way through to the reception (we were able to see a sample arrangement she made for us as well which required no changes at all!). The bridesmaids bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres were gorgeous and held up well through eight hours of pictures, ceremony and reception activities. Sarah created aisle arrangements for the ceremony that were beautifully displayed in mason jars which just added to the rustic feel of the wedding along with stunning table arrangements in rustic boxes of varying size, all of which she set-up beforehand and then came and picked up anything that remained after the reception!! She was very reliable and truly achieved the exact ambiance we were looking for. If you are looking for a floral designer for your wedding, it would be an absolute mistake not to contact Sarah - we could not have been happier with the outcome!! Absolutely perfect all around.

Sarah and her team are amazing and they are the reason my wedding was able to go ahead without a hitch. I worked with Sarah as a full wedding planner and she was also my florist.

She is really hard working, understands the needs of the bride, and personalizes her services accordingly. She also makes sure to insert realism as necessary in an assertive but kind way. This was important as I planned my wedding in just under 3 months. She got our invitations out quickly and without error, prepared favors and signage, worked closely with vendors and made the actual day run smoothly. She was key to making sure my bridal party moved and organized effectively on the day of the wedding. Her style and demeanor is perfect as she is reassuring and calm, but definitely knows all the details and is focused.

She really listens and I understand some wedding planners are pushy, which she is not. She kept me sane and helped organize all the to-dos, budgets, communications etc. She was amazing and really essential for my wedding! I would highly recommend her to other brides I know!

Sarah did such a wonderful job with the floral arrangements at my wedding. She was a pleasure and delight to work with - very responsive and knew exactly what I was looking for (even when I didnt give her much guidance). Everything was professional, prompt and easy when working with Sarah. And the flower arrangements were just gorgeous. I received so many compliments on my bridal bouquet. I definitely recommend Sarah and Engaging Floral Designs.

Sarah provided all the flowers and day of coordination for my wedding, and she was just wonderful to work with - she took my vision for the flowers at my wedding and made it come to life. The flowers were just gorgeous, I could not have asked for more! Sarah is also extremely organized, responsive, and proactive, which was important to me. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for beautiful and thoughtfully designed wedding flowers, and a truly wonderful person to work with!
Sarah and her day of coordination team made my wedding day perfect. I was an organized bride to start with, but Sarah took the time to really listen to how I wanted the day to go, down to every little detail, so that on the say of the wedding I honestly did not have to worry about one single thing - and wvery detail went exactly as I had envisioned! With Sarah and her team orchestrating the day, I knew that I could just relax and enjoy the moment, which was so important to me. Sarah's professionalism, kindness, patience, and calming presence are unmatched - don't plan a wedding without her!!

It would be a mistake to pass up the opportunity to work with NY Engagements as your planning service. In my years of working in Live Events in NYC I have yet to come across a group of professionals that are so incredibly organized, calm, collected, and dependable as NY Engagements. My wedding was all over the place with big ideas and the team whipped me into shape only after a few phone calls. In the end I had my dream wedding, which ran flawlessly despite being incredibly complicated. I would recommend them to anyone and put my reputation on the line. I can't thank them enough for everything they did for me. Do yourself the favor just give them a call, in one minute you will be sold.

We can't say enough great things about Sarah! She was our day of coordinator and florist, and she was definitely the key to us relaxing and enjoying our wedding. Sarah is extremely organized and on top of things, which allowed us to hand over the reins to her during those last few weeks. She was great at working with all our vendors and had the perfect balance of organization and flexibility to accommodate the different ways our vendors operated and make sure our wedding was absolutely amazing.

And our flowers were absolutely gorgeous! It was really great to have Sarah as both the florist and day of coordinator because during the venue setup she was able to manage both sides flawlessly. She did a wonderful job of taking our vague descriptions of the type of flowers we wanted (we sent her a Pinterest board of ideas) and turning that into a beautiful array of centerpieces, bouquets, and other arrangements. Sarah really made sure our wedding was both beautiful and seamless!

Sarah was great!! So prompt in her email replies (which to me is very important for a vendor), and super organized. I knew exactly what I was getting. She took time to meet with my mom and I, and answered tons of questions we had both in person and via email. Send me pictures of other arrangements similar to mine so I knew what to expect, and even met me at the venue one week prior to go over everything again. All of the flowers were exactly what we had discussed, and I was very pleased with it all!!

You do NOT want to host a wedding ceremony and reception without Sarah Lusardi assisting you. She is the best. She has the 'full picture' of how the events should look and feel in her head and knows how to fully deliver your vision. She guides you gently to make key decisions at the appropriate time, and her execution on the "day of" is marvelous. She is responsive to questions, flexible with changes, detail-oriented, very reliable, and very professional. Having Sarah at my side during he planning and on the day of was the best decision I made to ensure my daughter's wedding was beautiful, meaningful, and fun too.

Sarah did an absolutely phenomenal job on our wedding. The flowers were breathtaking and above and beyond what we could have hoped for. She also acted as our wedding coordinator and we can't say enough about what a help she was. She was on top of all the details and was a calming presence, helping keep everyone sane. Truly, we could not have asked for a better experience than what we got from Sarah- both professionally, in the quality of her work and beauty of her design sense, and personally.

Third time was a charm! After meeting with two other vendors and being underwhelmed by their lack of professionalism, I had the luck and absolute pleasure of being referred to NY Engagements. From start to finish Sarah proved herself to be a consummate professional. If you want a vendor who is responsive, intuitive, easy to work with, organized, and a creator of beautiful floral designs, do yourself a favor and do not miss out on the opportunity to let NY Engagements make your wedding a beautiful occasion.

Sarah was a delight to work with. She was so professional and friendly. I felt like a valued customer from our first correspondence. She was highly accommodating and patient with me - someone who has no knowledge on flowers and would send her emails with multiple pictures attached with descriptions for each. It felt like working with a friend with Sarah. Not to mention she did an absolute amazing job with the finish products. She listened well, met and exceeded expectations - stunning. Thank you again SO much, Sarah. You're wonderful!

We hired Sarah Lusardi to do the flowers for our Bronx Zoo wedding a few weeks back, and I literally could not have asked for more in a floriest or vendor. Sarah is a consummate professional and remained remarkably patient over the year-long course of my wedding planning. She never once made me feel like a nutty bride or that my questions were frivolous. We reviewed a ton of pictures together in the planning process to ensure that Sarah had a good idea of what I liked and what I disliked. She paid VERY close attention to detail and the end result was simply magical. Sarah has impeccable and sophisticated taste and pays very close attention to detail. When I caught a first glimpse of my chuppah, my breath was taken away. The bride/bridesmaid bouquets were elegant, classy and lucious and the flowers couldn't have been fresher. Everything showed up when and where it was supposed to! We received numerous compliments on the flowers over the course of the evening and I had 2 guests email me for Sarah's contact info in the weeks following the wedding. I would hire Sarah again in a heartbeat and can say without reservation that I couldn't imagine anyone, anywhere, doing a better job than Sarah and her team.

Sarah made the best floral recommendations for various environments (example: very hot church without air conditioning) within my budget! The guests stated that her arrangements rivaled that of celebrity weddings. Seriously, Sarah was one of my most favorite vendors to work with!!

Saying our wedding flowers were all we hoped for and more is an understatement. Sarah absolutely hit it out of the park with all of the flowers - every one of the details was so much better than we even imagined. The flowers lining the pergola, the aisle arrangements, the petals in the aisle, the centerpieces, the bouquets, the corsages, the ceremony arrangements, the orchids on the manzanita branches, the peony for the cake... all were so absolutely perfect. I think our many emails to her were probably as clear as mud, and she still managed to somehow read our minds and deliver exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Sarah of Engaging Floral Designs was an absolutely wonderful florist! After meeting with her on a chilly spring day to discuss my vision for the flowers and the wedding overall, we could tell by her knowledge, attention to detail and beautiful work that she was the florist for us! She is very good at what she does and made suggestions as to what flowers would accompany each other well based on what types I had my heart set on and what our color scheme was. The final products were absolutely beautiful and we couldn't have been happier! We also ran in to a unique and unfortunate situation - our wedding was scheduled for August 28, 2011, and when Hurricane Irene threatened the east coast with dangerous weather, we were forced to postpone to October. Sarah was very flexible, helpful, understanding and reassuring in our stressful time of rescheduling and was able to work with us on our new date as well as provide us with all of the original flowers we had discussed originally, rather than having to rework our entire scheme for fall (which we still cannot thank her enough for!) Even when we ran in to potential timing hiccups on the day of the wedding, she was extremely accommodating in making sure we had our arrangements as quickly as possible for photos. Guests still rave about how beautiful the arrangements and our chuppah was, and I dried and preserved as much of my bouquet as I could! She was extremely professional but also incredibly nice - an absolute joy to work with! If you're looking for beautiful and unique work done by one of the sweetest people in the industry, I highly recommend working with Sarah!

We hired Sarah as the florist and day-of coordinator for our wedding. My mom and I were designing and hand-making almost every little detail, so we really wanted the flowers to match our vision. As we planned the wedding we made a few changes to the color palette and budget and Sarah worked with us through them. She is very detail-oriented and reliable, which meant I did not have to sweat the small stuff on my big day. In the end, all of the flowers - from the altar, to the favor table - were beautiful. The table centerpieces were especially gorgeous, we got many compliments on those. After our wedding my maid of honor decided to hire Sarah for her wedding as well. We all need a Sarah on our wedding day!

Everything was just perfect. I absolutely LOVED the centerpiece! I wanted something a bit different so Sarah created a beautiful tree branch with orchids strung on with hanging votives. I received SO many compliments on the centerpieces. Wonderful job!!

She has a calming presence which helps in high times of stress. I cannot emphasize enough what a relief it was to know we were working with such a professional team. I knew I didn't have to worry about issues that would come up on the day of. They took care to make sure things ran smoothly. They were a delight to work with and I am extremely grateful to them for making our day perfect!! :) Read less

Sarah did such an incredible job on our wedding day flowers. She took my crazy ideas and nailed it! Our centerpieces were out of this world and people couldn't stop talking about them! My bridal bouquet was exactly what I envisioned. I would recommend hiring Sarah, she was so professional and just a dream to work with. From the endless detailed emails and phone calls to personally constructing and delivering our flowers on the day of, we couldn't have asked for more. Great company :)

Sarah was our DOC for our wedding in October and we couldn't have been happier with everything she helped out with (and there was a LOT). She started 3 weeks before the wedding, and as an attorney working on an out of state trial, I couldn't have needed her more right then! She coordinated with vendors seamlessly, kept me in the loop on everything critical and gently reminded me of a million things I never would have even thought of-- all of which made the Big Day truly amazing and stress-free. Having Sarah on site the day of our wedding meant that not only bride and groom, but also family and our bridal party, could focus on enjoying the festivities without distraction or headache. I'm sure there were many things Sarah handled gracefully that I'm not even aware of- the sign of a true professional. Family, friends and our vendors raved about her (she's so down to earth and friendly, she's just like one of the group!). I recommend Sarah and NY Engagements to anyone with an upcoming wedding to ensure that your day is just how you hoped it would be and memorable for all of the right reasons!

Let me begin this review by admitting I’m completely clueless and relatively unimpressed with flowers. But when planning my wedding I knew I definitely “needed” (and wanted) the obligatory bouquets and centerpieces. And as a total perfectionist who planned most every single detail of my wedding myself, I knew I needed to find the right florist- another perfectionist whose professionalism and pride in their work would ensure I had beautiful floral arrangements, even without specific instructions and expectations outlined in detail. I also knew I needed someone who could respond quickly and thoroughly to all inquiries. Sarah fit the bill! I gave Sarah some pretty general ideas and style preferences with a relatively strict budget. She was very respectful of my budget and completely understood the style and look I was aiming for. I was not disappointed in the slightest on our wedding day! All of our bouquets looked so fresh and beautiful- the pictures are really stunning. The ceremony space (outside in the fall) looked lovely and for a very reasonable price. And our centerpieces were beautiful- exactly what I had in mind. I received so many compliments on those and a girlfriend who took one home told me her home smelled wonderful for a week! I really could not have been happier with Sarah’s services and am so grateful we entrusted her with our wedding floral arrangements!

Sarah Lusardi was one of the best things that could have happened to me on my wedding day. I could not have done my wedding without her or her services! Not only were my vendors impressed with her, but my entire family commented on what a kind, professional and awesome day-of coordinator I had. She planned with me up until the event, letting me email her at all hours and she was nothing but patient and responsive. We covered all the aspects of the wedding, and the day of was so smooth I actually had a blast at my own wedding. I was not stressed out at all because I trusted her and knew she would handle everything and all the bumps that could possibly happen. She is worth SO MUCH MORE THAN SHE CHARGES. I cannot say enough about how pleased I was. I hired her TEN DAYS before my wedding because I was freaking out about doing everything on my own. She was so calm as soon as I called her, and she took care of everything. I truly would have been a disaster without her. ALSO, she listened to exactly what I wanted and was not bossy or intrusive, but got the job done in a professional and kind manner that made everyone happy. I LOVE THIS WOMAN! She is the wedding fairy...if you are getting married, give yourself this gift!

We used NY Engagements/Engaging florals for my daughters wedding in July 2010. Sarah Lusardi provided the invitations and flowers. When I first met Sarah I was very frustrated trying to decide on a florist. I sat down with Sarah and within 5 minutes I knew I had found the right person! She is very creative and was able to present a plan to me right then and there that I loved and was within my budget. The flowers were absolutely beautiful at the wedding and I received many compliments from my guests. She also helped me with the invitations and wording. She was very knowledgable about ettiquette and was able to advise me through out the entire process. I will definitely use Sarah again when my other daughter gets married. She was without a doubt the best vendor I used!

STRONG RECOMMENDATION FROM RECENT "MOTHER OF THE BRIDE" (MOB)

We first met and spoke with Sarah Lusardi of NY Engagements about 10 months prior to the June 5, 2010 wedding. After my daughter's research and follow up with Sarah's references, we decided to contract with Sarah for the flowers and for her help 3 weeks prior to the wedding.

This was one of the best and wisest decisions we made for the wedding!! As the "Mother of the Bride" ( MOB), I strongly suggest and recommend contracting NY ENGAGEMENTS owned and lead by Sarah for your wedding or other special event! IT WILL BE YOUR BEST INVESTMENT AND YOU WILL GET 100%+ RETURN FOR YOUR MONEY!

I work full-time and so does my daughter (& she was getting her MA degree this past yr also)/ We knew that we'd need help with all the details towards the final weeks before and especially "the big day".

Sarah is a true professional! She was always responsive, a great listener and follows through. Her calm, low key style along with her excellent attention to detail and fantastic organization skills help make the hectic months and especially the days before the wedding more manageable and enjoyable.


Here are two great examples to validate hiring Sarah:

1-On the afternoon right at rehearsal,( eve before the Sat wedding) we noted that caterer/vendor set up tents in the wrong place at our wedding site. My daughter and her fiance were upset and tried to reach this caterer to get this changed in time for the wedding the next day. We had the rehesarsal dinner and cocktail reception immediately after the rehearsal. We had no time to deal with the caterer/vendor to rectify this error.

Sarah was with us coordinating the rehearsal (& She did a great job!) immediately took action and told us she'd take care of this. And she did. By the time we returned late that evening after the rehearsal dinner, Sarah had spoken with the caterer/vendor and everything was corrected and tents were where we had wanted!
If we did not have Sarah, MOB, Father of the Bride, my daughter and fiance would not have been able to enjoy the rehearsal dinner and cocktail reception.


2 - Sarah was fantastic the day of the wedding. She was there when we needed her and she took the initiative to anticipate your needs. Into the later part of the reception, I had no idea that the liquor was running low. I found out the next day that Sarah resolved the problem without any disruption. I learned that she had contacted a local vendor for the additional liquor we needed and everything went on without missing a beat and no one noticed a thing. Everyone was happy and having fun enjoying themselves.

Thanks to Sarah and her team, our daughter's wedding was a real celebration for all especially for MOB (& Father of the Bride, Bride and Groom) because we were able to step back a bit and truly enjoy this special time!

Working with Sarah was the best choice that we made in our wedding planning process. She is absolutely on top of every single detail and made sure that things went absolutely perfectly. We could not have had the perfect wedding that we did without her.
Sarah was recommended to us by a friend who used her services, and I have to admit that before I met her I thought we didn't need a wedding coordinator. When she showed up for our initial meeting exactly on time and completely prepared, I thought it would be a good idea to hire her, but still wasn't completely convinced it was necessary. But I have to admit, as soon as we started working together I realized that the value she brought far outweighed the cost and I can say definitively now that our wedding day is done, it was because of Sarah that our wedding day was smooth, seamless, well-coordinatoed and fun for everyone involved.

We hired NY Engagements and Engaging Floral Designs for Day-Of Wedding Coordination and Floral Design and they were by far our favorite wedding vendors. We were not sure what kind of floral arrangements we wanted for the ceremony and reception, so Sarah sat down with us to help us come up with a general design. At the meeting, she looked at photos of my wedding dress, the bridesmaids dresses and some magazine clippings of centerpieces and bouquets we liked and she discussed possible designs that would work to create the look we wanted in our wedding venue (Sarah was also very familiar with our wedding venue, which was very helpful). Once we decided on the general design, we arranged for Sarah to make a sample centerpiece so that we could see it in person (it was gorgeous!). We discussed the general look and colors for the ceremony and bridal party flowers with Sarah, but left the details completely up to her. On our wedding day, we were completely blown away! The ceremony room was absolutely beautiful! The chuppah was covered in greenery and flowers, there were candles on the mantles, petals down the aisle, aisle markers on the chairs and floral wreaths on the doors (there were probably more details that I missed). My bouquet was gorgeous and worked perfectly with my dress (I liked it so much I arranged for Sarah to have it preserved for me after the wedding) and the bridal party flowers were prettier than I ever imagined. The centerpieces were also beautiful and worked perfectly in the reception room.

Sarah and her team also did an amazing job with the Day-Of Wedding Coordination. I honestly don't know what I would have done without them. They checked in with all of our vendors a few weeks before the wedding to coordinate logistics, and again a couple days before the wedding to confirm any final details, etc....and thank God she did! It turned out that our transportation company (that was providing shuttle bus and limo service for our bridal party and the majority of our guests) sold their business a few days or so before our wedding without saying anything to us or to Sarah and the new company didn't have our contract or enough shuttles/limos to satisfy our contract. If Sarah and her team hadn't followed up with our vendors a couple days before the wedding, we never would have known this and we wouldn't have had transportation to our wedding!! Sarah and her team handled the entire situation, they worked with the new transportation company and contacted other transportation companies that they worked with in the area to take care of the transportation issue. She also had someone stay at the hotel to make sure that guests knew where to go to get on the shuttles and to make sure that the transportation was taken care of. At the wedding, Sarah and her team took care of all the little details so that we could just sit back and enjoy the day (and we did!). I honestly do not know all of the things that Sarah and her team did behind the scenes, but I know it was a lot because I didn't have to think about a thing on my wedding day and everything ran smoothly...all of the little things that were supposed to happen throughout the day happened, the tips were handed out and the gifts and all the wedding items had already been loaded into the limo when I got in at the end of the night.

I would highly recommend NY Engagements and Engaging Floral Designs.

I hired Sarah Lusardi to for "as-needed" consultation leading up to the wedding and day-of assistance for the wedding itself. She was super responsive, extremely helpful, and very thorough for both services. Having access to her during my planning gave me peace of mind and helped me avoid making any unfixable mistakes. Her day-of services were invaluble. She helped me take care of the things I missed weeks rather than days before the event, and having her there on the day-of to take care of any problems and communicate with my vendors when I couldn't or didn't want to made the wedding a hundred times more enjoyable than it otherwise would have been. I would recommend Sarah in a second.

I hired Sarah to be our event coordinator for the day of the wedding, which is to say, she came on board 3 weeks prior to the day of. I also hired her to do all the decor and floral arrangements. To be honest, at the beginning I was a little worried b/c I couldn't see the flowers she was talking about, and had no idea what the flowers would look like the day of (I don't know flowers). I had an idea, but b/c I didn't know what each flower was like, and even when I google imaged them, I still had no idea what they would look like all together. But she told me to trust her, and I did, b/c she was professional, and experienced, and spoke like she knew her stuff, and I'd never planned a wedding before! Not only the guests were blown away at the wedding by her decor and floral arrangements, but my husband and I were too as we walked in. She worked well with our budget. She was professional, firm, but not cold at all, rather warm and sweet in dealing with our eclectic, often loud, and completely multi-cultural family, and our various vendors. When my family members began arriving from out of town, she had had all the important phone numbers needed, and she took care of EVERYTHING from that point onward, staying in communication with all my vendors so I could just take care of entertaining my friends and family as they arrived. I wouldn't have been able to do any of that without her. It should also be said that my husband, Sarah, and I put all this together within three months, and it turned out AMAZING. My dream wedding! I would recommend Sarah to ANYONE getting married!

To be honest, at the beginning I was a little worried b/c I couldn't see the flowers she was talking about, and had no idea what the flowers would look like the day of (I don't know flowers). I had an idea, but b/c I didn't know what each flower was like, and even when I google imaged them, I still had no idea what they would look like all together. But she told me to trust her, and I did, b/c she was professional, and experienced, and spoke like she knew her stuff, and I'd never planned a wedding before! Not only the guests were blown away at the wedding by her decor and floral arrangements, but my husband and I were too as we walked in. She worked well with our budget. She was professional, firm, but not cold at all, rather warm and sweet in dealing with our eclectic, often loud, and completely multi-cultural family, and our various vendors. When my family members began arriving from out of town, she had had all the important phone numbers needed, and she took care of EVERYTHING from that point onward, staying in communication with all my vendors so I could just take care of entertaining my friends and family as they arrived. I wouldn't have been able to do any of that without her. It should also be said that my husband, Sarah, and I put all this together within three months, and it turned out AMAZING. My dream wedding! I would recommend Sarah to ANYONE getting married! Read less

Sarah and her team were fantastic. I worked with her for over a year, starting with Save the Dates and invitations, all the way through floral/event design and day-of coordination. From the beginning, Sarah was always extremely professional, but friendly. She is not a stereotypical NYC wedding planner whose motto is "my way or the highway." She worked with me extensively to help implement MY vision, even when I wasn't sure what exactly it was. Although she let me run with my ideas, she was always there to offer advice and expertise. She really achieved the perfect balance of helpful and not overbearing or bossy.

The decor at the wedding was beautiful. It was exactly what I wanted even though I obviously never saw it fully put together until that night.

We really lucked out and the weather was fantastic, enabling us to do our photos and ceremony outside, but Sarah worked with me to come up with Plans B and C when the forecast was for terrible weather. I'm sure there was a lot to deal with behind the scenes on the wedding day, but I wouldn't know because everything was literally perfect and seamless, thanks to Sarah and her team. And that's exactly how it should have been.

The last couple of weeks were pretty hectic for me and Sarah was always available to answer my questions, implement changes I made at the last minute and take on even more than i'd already put on her plate, etc. Despite the fact that she was busily working on other weddings and other aspects of my wedding, she never made me feel like I was being demanding or hassling her (even though at times I may have been...). I was fortunate to have a lot of time to plan my wedding and I didn't need a full-time planner. Nonetheless, there are unexpected issues and details that come up, especially in the last week, that a bride-to-be shouldn't have to handle all on her own. One of the most valuable things Sarah did for me was to deal with all the last-minute correspondence and different opinions of all the different vendors: venue, band, photographer, videographer, etc. When things started getting a stressful for me, I spoke with Sarah, conveyed my thoughts and concerns and asked her to be my voice with each vendor so I could concentrate on other things. She did so and didn't "bother" me again until everything was settled. I can't tell you how helpful this was! This is when Sarah really earned her fee, which was very reasonable to begin with. Even if you think you won't need this service, spend the extra money if you have it in your budget. It is worth every last penny.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Engaging Floral Designs/NY Engagements LLC and Sarah in particular and would recommend her and the company to any bride-to-be.

Flawless Execution.

Sarah Lusardi served in a dual capacity for my wedding -- day-of coordinator and floral designer. From our very first conversation, Sarah was professional, prepared and punctual. For the floral design she listened to my ideas and crafted affordable options for me to consider. The results were stunning! The flowers were more beautiful than I ever imagined. Our guests spent a considerable amount of time photographing the decor. It was unforgettable.

Hiring Sarah as my day-of coordinator meant that I was able to enjoy my wedding (which was what I wanted most). I was able to turn all of details over to her without worrying. I spent a considerable amount of time and effort planning this event, and Sarah executed these plans flawlessly (and the wedding started at the appointed hour). One month after the event we're still getting calls and messages from guests telling us how wonderful the day was for them. We couldn't have done it without Sarah.

For both floral design and day-of coordination services, I recommend NYEngagements without reservation.

We booked Sarah at NY Engagements for both our flowers and invitations for our wedding. I thought the invitations came out great, and Sarah had a nice selection of different invitations. Also, she was very responsive when it came to additional invitations and changes to any invititions. While we were very satisfied with the invitations, it was in the floral design where Sarah's talents really shined. To be frank, we were blown away with the flowers, and never could have imagined getting as much as we did. We were on a tight budget, and met with a number of florists who were unwilling to work with us. Sarah had a much different attitude, and was willing to be very creative in getting us everything we wanted within our budget. She was also the only florist who told us that we would be able to afford a chuppah within our budget (not only was the price of the chuppah extremely reasonable, but it ended up being as beautiful, if not more beautiful than any others we've seen at other weddings). As for the reception, the flowers were really beautiful and really popped, and we got many compliments on them throughout the night and days after. We did half of the tables with high vases, and half with low vases which created a nice look. The last thing that I would like to add is that the day before our wedding, we realized that we had given Sarah an incorrect table count, and had one less centerpiece than table. Sarah was able to create one more centerpiece, from the extra flowers that she had ordered, and everything went off without a hitch. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with NY Engagements, and we are so very thankful of the work that Sarah put in. I honestly do not believe that we could have gotten a better value for our budget with anyone else.

Professional, Patient, Caring, Helpful, Prompt and Talented are some of the ways to describe Sarah. Me and my family were so lucky to find Sarah anything asked of her was done immediately and patiently. No matter how many things she was asked to do at the same time during pre-wedding craziness she got done with a smile....just the type of person you want helping you during your insanity.

I was impressed with Sarah from the moment she agreed to "dress me" for my wedding. She immediately asked for the number of my designer of my wedding dress. Then, she emailed me that she would meet me at my next fitting. Sarah wanted to make sure she knew all the intricacies of my dress and bustle.

Professionalism and talent like Sarah is hard to find.

Thank you Sarah

We (the bride {my daughter}, and myself) decided that we wanted to have a wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding. Sarah went beyond the call of duty. We met with her three weeks before the wedding and went over everything that had been planned along with what needed to still be completed. She emailed us with a to do list for us and for herself. As we responded to this list she would update it. She was always responsive to emails and phone calls. We were always able to communicate with her. She did all the functions of a wedding coordinator as if she had coordinated the whole wedding. The weekend of the wedding which was outdoors was the heat wave in New York. Janna, the bride :), called Sarah about buying fans for the guests. Sarah bought the fans even though that was not part of her job description. We felt secure knowing that everything that had been planned for was going to be done. The wedding was wonderful and a good part of that was Sarah. Without hesitation I would recommend Sarah as your wedding coordinator for the entire wedding or for the day of. Leah Davidson

Hiring Sarah at NY Engagements was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. She is such a creative person - although I had ideas for how I wanted the wedding to look, she brought to the table numerous suggestions that made things even better and more detailed. Sarah was always super prepared and on time for our meetings. Countless guests commented how beautiful the venue looked. The best part of all was, with her help, my family and friends never had to worry about a thing on wedding day. Sarah and her team really pulled things together smoothly, efficiently, and perfectly! She also is extremely reasonably priced. I highly recommend her services.

Sarah was worth her weight in gold! She stayed within my budget, but delivered a Class A event that my family and I were proud of. She also saved the day when the venue accidentally threw away my flowers; Sarah had fresh long-stem white roses delivered to the site within a very short time and the place looked amazing. She was there to hold my hand, she listened to me and did exactly what I wanted. She was great in handling the family drama (read mom-plays-bride-for-the-day!) and she was also very helpful after the whole thing was over in helping me deal with a photographer who failed to deliver the photos on time. I'm certain she saved me more money than I spent on her and it was well worth it. I enjoyed my day with a peace of mind, knowing Sarah was there to take care of everything. Thanks, Sarah!

My wedding flowers were everything I'd hoped they would be, Sarah did such an amazing job! She was so easy to work with and paid attention to our likes and dislikes and the results were simply gorgeous! Everyone at the wedding loved the flowers and the guests who brought centerpieces home reported back that 1) the flowers lasted for a long time and 2) everyone who saw them asked where they had gotten such beautiful flowers!

I can't imagine what the planning process would have been like in the weeks leading up to the wedding without Sarah. When we were presented with the list of everything we had to decide on and schedule/coordinate, we were completely overwhelmed, but she walked us through everything step-by-step and answered any questions we had. She established contact with our other vendors and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding; the other vendors loved working with her and commented on how calm and professional she was the entire time. It was so nice to know we didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding and that we could just enjoy ourselves!

My maid of honor/twin sister "gifted" me Sarah's services as a day of coordinator for my July 7th wedding. I had already retained most of my vendors but Sarah did provide some assistance with locating a good hair/makeup person and with finding a limo company.

However, Sarah's primary role was to serve as my insurance policy on the big day. I planned and paid for everything on my own and knowing my worry wart tendencies my sister wanted me to focus on enjoying the day.

Sarah met with me a few months before and reviewed my vendor contracts, prepared a comprehensive list of "to dos" -(-many of which, despite my incredibly thorough research and planning I hadn't thought of) and provided strategic suggestions for how to make the day flow smoothly. She also gave me some useful templates including seating chart layouts and a day of contact sheet

Days before the wedding she contacted all my vendors and confirmed that they were all a-go and knew where to be and when and how to get there. The day before the wedding she attended the rehearsal, took my programs, amenity basket and favors as well as the payments to distribute to my vendors who needed to be paid on the day of.

On the actual day she made sure everything was set up the way it was supposed to be, including distributing flowers to the wedding party, ensuring the readers were seated in locations so they could quickly access the lecturn, directing guests from the church to the reception venue, gathering everyone for photos (which can be quite challenging with a large family), ensuring the band performed in accord with my play list and generally making sure I was blissfully ignorant to any hiccups. At the end of the night (which can be chaotic) she gathered everything and made sure I had all my stuff--including my veil which I had mislaid at some point in the evening and assisting a guest in locating their camera.

In sum she was incredibly organized, professional and very diligent. I worked with very well known, high end vendors and the chances of anything going awry was probably very low, but knowing Sarah was there just in case something did not go according to plan, allowed me to get much needed pre-wedding sleep. My wedding went off with out a hitch and I do believe that was due in part thanks to Sarah.

I was extremely upset by the service I received from Sarah. I wasn't overly extravagant with my flowers however the one thing that needed to be perfect was my bouquet. I meet with her and explained that I wanted white roses with pink on the tips. She said no problem. She even showed me a whole booklet of roses. Then shortly before the wedding I sent a follow up email with a picture of the type of roses I wanted. On the day of the wedding my bouquet was all wrong. The roses looked like they were dying and were not the right type. On the day of my wedding my cousins went to the supermarket and found the kind of roses I wanted. Engaging Floral made my wedding day more difficult and my cousins should have got the money I paid her.
