Sarah was wonderful in planning all aspects of my daughter's wedding! She has a great group of vendors and she works hard on every detail. The day of the wedding was flawless and she seemed to be everywhere…from setting up in the tent to getting my daughter into her dress to coordinating the reception.
Sarah is very friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who needed event planning!

We recently worked with Sarah at One Fine Day and she did an amazing job! She coordinated with all of our vendors, and was there from the morning to the very end of our wedding. The entire day of was SO much less stressful because we knew the Sarah would handle any issues. She anticipated so many things throughout the day, and anytime I needed something she just happened to be right there. She has one assistant with her, and he did a great job as well. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her. Our wedding went incredibly smoothly and perfectly and we know the reason why is because she was there behind the scenes for us!

Our wedding was in Sarasota but we live out of state, so we needed someone who knew the area and local vendors well and could help us do some serious 'leg work' in planning our wedding. We came to Sarasota only twice before our wedding, and Sarah was able to coordinate meetings with vendors when we were there and keep things moving along when we weren't. She did a great job of matching us to the right vendors and understanding our tastes and budget, so much so that I was completely comfortable approving some details sight unseen if she suggested them (table linen colors, for example). Being several hundred miles away, this was hugely helpful.

One of the main reasons I chose to work with Sarah was her personality. I spoke with a lot of gushy, bubbly, 'it's your day, you're the princess' kind of planners and vendors, which does not fit my own personality at all. Sarah's calm, genuine, softspoken nature was a refreshing change, and proved to be the best type of person to have around on a day when nerves are running high!

When I first met with Sarah the first thing that I noticed was how CALM she was - while I sat there all nervous and anxious, worring about literally everything - she was completely calm and understanding. I didn't have my mom's help at all for planning my wedding and having never been involved in a wedding like this before - had no idea what was typical or expected of me. She provided me with so much guidance on what I needed to be doing and what she would handle too. To make planning this wedding even more complicated, I travel to another state each for work and am only available for vendor meetings on Fridays or weekends. To try to touch base and keep me on track - I would e-mail Sarah long winded lists of what I was working on for the wedding, questions and worries I had, and asked for statuses on where she was with items she was handling - I have no idea if this is normal for brides to do but she went with it and helped keep me from going completely insane while planning the biggest party of my life. She helped us with the budget and although we went over - I feel sure that we got the best vendors that we could. Our band decided to break up 2 months before our wedding and Sarah was able to contact the band members and find a resolution so that we didn't end up with a true problem on our hands - the band got a new lead singer to play during the reception and the old lead singer played during cocktail hour - a nice resolution that prevented us from having to find a new band. It is so hard to envision what your reception will look like but Sarah was able to help my vision come together and I'm so thankful. I know that given my worrying ways and perfectionism that I'm not the easiest to please and Sarah still managed to help us coordinate a beautiful day. I have had countless friends/family tell me that it was the by far the best wedding and reception they'd ever been to! Thank you so much, Sarah!!

Words cannot express how grateful my husband and I are to have hired Sarah to help plan and coordinate our wedding day. I met with Sarah almost a year before our wedding. She was there to guide and recommend me to the best vendors that the Tampa has to offer. Sarah is extremely organized, has great communication and always made me feel like I was her 1st priority even though I know she has other clients. Sarah provided me with the gift on my wedding day, that I didn’t have to worry about anything other than having the wedding of my dreams. Thanks again Sarah, I can’t say enough positive things about you and your assistant.

Make your special day really wonderful for you and your parents. Hire Sarah Fairbairn to help you with your wedding. Our Florida wedding was on an island with the bride & groom in New York City, the bride’s parents in Illinois and the groom’s parents in another part of New York. All 140 guests were from out of town. Difficult…YES. But Sarah was fabulous. And to make it even more difficult, just as we were to start taking pictures it started to RAIN (after 10 weeks of perfect sunny weather). But Sarah handled it all with calm and efficiency. Sarah worked with the florist to hold the cost of flowers down and covered most of her fees in doing so. She was fabulous in everything from organizing, filling and distributing all the Welcome Bags to helping us decide on an additional tent for the ceremony to holding the umbrellas for us as we entered the venue in the rain. She could not have been more wonderful and efficient.
After the hours of celebration, we arrived home and here comes Sarah and her assistant Natalie with the bride’s bouquet, a vase to put it in, the rest of the cake and other flowers from the reception to decorate our home. Sarah coordinated 3 events for us for wedding weekend; a Welcome Dinner for 124, the Wedding Ceremony and Reception for 140 and a Brunch on Sunday for 100. And the rain didn’t fluster her in the least. Five stars are not enough for this lovely, unflappable woman. Sarah, many thanks for the most wonderful day of our lives.

I just recently got married and one of the best decision about the wedding beyond the dress and the groom was Sarah! She is fabulous, a live saver, calm, and friendly. Do yourself a huge favor--involve Sarah in your day. She caught every detail, helped things run perfectly on the day of and for the rehearsal. Sarah was so on top of things that on the day of the wedding I didn't have to worry because I knew that she would take care of everything.

For example, the day of the wedding also happened to be my now husband's sister's birthday. I had ordered a special cupcake to be delivered along with the wedding cake, so that the my husband and I could give it to her. MY first mistake is I forgot to tell Sarah about the cupcake. So when the cake vendor didn't bring the cupcake and I did not realize this until during the reception. Sarah sprang into action instantly found a little cake, candles, lit the candles, and signaled the band to sing happy birthday all in about 5 minutes. It was downright AMAZING!

Sarah helped bustle my dress, orchestrate the schedule, calm my mom down--she did everything. She helped find linens for the reception and glasses for the cocktail hour. She did the last minute coordinating with all of the vendors and helped the reception turn into the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. She had awesome suggestions about the order events to keep the reception flowing, decor ideas, and was spot on about everything. I would absolutely recommend Sarah to anyone and everyone. According to my mom, "Sarah is worth more than her weight in gold."

Sarah is an amazing coordinator and really helps the Bride to feel at ease on such a stressful day. Sarah is prepared for any and all situations that may arise on the day of your wedding and helps to make everything run perfectly. Although I only hired Sarah for the "day of" she made sure that I knew if I had any questions or needed advice for the months leading up to the wedding that she was always available. Everytime I emailed her, I would get a response in a very timely manner. I don't know what I would have done without her for my wedding and I highly recommend her to every Bride!

My wedding day ran so smoothly that I received many compliments on her quality of service. Sarah was able to remain calm at all times and get the job done!

Sarah and Laura were amazing from the very beginning of the wedding experience, until my last guest left the building. They were willing to share fabulous advice regarding other vendors, were on call at any time for questions, and made the wedding actually enjoyable for my husband and I (and our mothers!). At one point someone stepped on my complicated bustle, and out came the thread and needle. She is amazing and well worth the money!

Sarah pulled together a wedding that our family will be gushing over for the rest of their lives. It was perfect ... every detail reflected our personalities and showcased a beautiful, original style. Do yourself a favor and hire One Fine Day: You get Sarah's knowledge and experience, built over the decade she's spent working with Tampa's best wedding vendors -- and, of course she stays cool under pressure. One example: She and Anita, on the day of the wedding, were ready for anything. Their box of supplies even included a hot glue gun. Who would have thought we'd need a hot glue gun? They did, and they were right -- the glue gun saved the day after a wedding-gown wardrobe malfunction!
