Welcome, friend.

As a Los Angeles intimate wedding planner, I can tell you it is possible to have the small, intimate wedding you’ve been dreaming of in a big, bustling city! Welcome to Kindred Weddings and Events, where we focus on crafting an event to remember that highlights all the special relationships in your life.

You know, the bond you have with your grandmother over baking. The fond memories of camping and exploring in nature every summer with your family. The best friend who held your hand through the trials and challenges of growing up. 

Those relationships have shaped you into the person you are today, the person who is promising to love, honor, and cherish their partner through the sacred bond of marriage.

What would it feel like to actually spend time being present with the people you love on your wedding day?

Your wedding day is a special time to celebrate all of these relationships, and to allow your loved ones to honor and support this new relationship you are stepping into. It’s time to start planning your love-fueled, intimate wedding!

A NorCal girl, with a heart for embracing the uncommon intimacy that can be found in this bustling metropolitan city. Weddings are about people, and I cannot wait to get to know YOU!

An intimate wedding is for anyone who desires to put their relationships first. For anyone who wants to focus on building a solid foundation for their marriage. And for those who want less on their big day, not more. Basically, everyone deep down inside wants to have an intimate wedding, but we end up having too many expectations thrust upon us (both internal and external) that lead to bigger, and busier wedding days.

Take a step back and think about what you want less of, to help create more margin for enjoying time with your favorite people. Less noise so you can focus on conversations. Less waste so you can give back. Less people so you can be your truest self. Less space so the closeness reverberates the joy. Less formalities so you can express who you are.

I cannot say enough good things about Sarah & what she does! She’s a great communicator filled with lots of ideas & definitely knows how to make sure your special day runs smoothly.
She was on top of everything, making sure vendors were on time, decorations set up, bridal party prepared & knew their duties, guests were comfortable, & most importantly made sure we (the bride & groom) were comfortable.

Sarah goes ABOVE & BEYOND! She gave us lots of helpful tips with the expertise she’s gained throughout the years & I can’t tell you enough how valuable it all was.

Sarah was the MVP of my wedding & I don’t know how I could’ve done it without her! I had many vendors at my wedding, & she kept everyone on track and everything running smoothly leading up to the wedding and on the day of. She was able to rein in my wedding party & keep things on schedule while being super fun & energetic. I would tell you about all the fires she put out on my wedding day, but I don’t know about them because she handled everything discreetly & made sure my husband and I had nothing to worry about except for enjoying the day! ... She was also there for me during the planning phase to make sure I was on track & to give advice when any issues came up.
If you’re considering Sarah, don’t hesitate to hire her... she is the best money you will spend on your wedding & will make sure you are able to enjoy the day you spend so much time anticipating!

It is impossible for me to express how amazing Sarah is. Hiring Sarah as our coordinator was the best decision we've made in this wedding because she is so much more than that. She helped me to stay organized, she thought of things that I would never think of, and answered every single one of my questions before I could ask it. 
We did our walk through of the venue, rehearsal, and detail meeting a week before the wedding and at that moment, I didn't think it was possible to be more sure that we had made the right decision...that is until we saw her in action on the day of. She took complete control while also being the sweetest person in the world. She made it very clear that she was going to take care of us, and that she did.
