Sarah Miller 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 planning. 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 serve 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 completing this event and moving to Caplan Miller, she has gone on to plan some of the area’s finest and most elaborate weddings and events.
Among Sarah’s recent accomplishments, she worked with Courtney Caplan to produce a dream wedding for an Iraq war veteran, broadcasted during a February 2011 edition of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Her production strategy focuses on customer service; she is dedicated to communicating thoroughly and efficiently with each client and vendor. 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 to follow-up after the lights go out.
