SENIOR EVENT PRODUCER
Sarah has an eye for design. Add to that a passion for food, 12 years of experience in event planning and a serious commitment to customer service, and you’ve got an award-winning event professional who raises the bar on special occasions of any kind.
A Texas native, Sarah grew up in the kitchen, where she cultivated an interest in the culinary arts. She moved to Austin to attend the Texas Culinary Academy and graduated with a particular interest in event coordination. She got her start in the field at the Radisson Austin Hotel & Suites, then joined Courtney Caplan’s catering team at The Driskill Hotel. Sarah’s specialty was weddings and large social functions, both markets she continues to lead at Caplan Miller.
In addition to her experience in the hotel industry, Sarah spent time planning the Neiman-Marcus Austin store Opening Gala. The event expanded her network of vendor relationships and connected her with the local fashion community. Since executing this event and moving to Caplan Miller, she has gone on to plan some of the region’s finest and most elaborate weddings and social events.
Among Sarah’s recent accomplishments, she worked alongside Caplan to produce a dream wedding for an Iraq war veteran, broadcasted during a February 2011 edition of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Additionally, Sarah flawlessly executed the first LBJ Foundation Gala celebrating its newest permanent exhibit. Her production strategy focuses first on customer service; she is dedicated to communicating thoroughly and efficiently with each of her clients and vendors. The best way to execute a flawless event is to make sure everyone understands the vision and remains on the same page, from initial consultation and follow-up to after the lights go out.
