Prior to launching Sara Muchnick Events, Sara worked as a wedding planner in Philadelphia before joining DC based Engaging Affairs, Inc. in 2006. Sara is a graduate of the University of Maryland and sat on the Board of Directors of the International Special Event Society’s (ISES) DC chapter from 2004-2008 as director and then VP of Programs and Education.
Sara has had four weddings nominated for Capitol Awards in the Best Wedding Event category at ISES’s annual awards gala in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2010, Sara brought home the award for Best Wedding Event in DC for an 18 hour event that had one reception, 2 ceremonies and 3 wardrobe changes. With over 10 years of experience in the industry, she has expertise in 'quick planning' weddings having completed two full weddings in just 8 weeks and another in 12.
She also has extensive experience in outdoor weddings having worked for Sugarplum Tent Company early in her career. Most recently Sara’s destination events have taken her to Connecticut and Florida.
Why does Sara love this job? "Every day is as different as the clients I work with. Nothing I do is cookie cutter and that makes each morning exciting."
When Sara isn't working she loves to travel with her husband- who is tasked with the planning of each travel adventure. After planning every other day of the year, on vacation she just wants to be told where to be and when! Sara currently sits on the board of Lolly’s Locks, a non profit started by a former bride that helps put quality wigs on the heads of women undergoing chemotherapy that would not otherwise be able to afford them.
