Owner of Regalo Design
Sarah is passionate about serving others, building relationships and finding joy in the simple things. She has always been a person who sets goals, comes up with a plan and executes the vision. Her mission is simple…serve others well. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord.”- Colossians 3:23
A native of Indiana, her first love was found on the stage. Sarah has been awarded several vocal and performance awards through the years. At 8 years old, Sarah took center court at the Pacers vs. Bulls basketball game, looked up at Michael Jordan and belted out the National Anthem. She was a TV Host for Inside Silvertown, “Belle” in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and “Dorothy” in the Wizard of Oz over a 10 year period at the Indianapolis Civic Theatre. Sarah was Miss Indiana in 2004 and traveled to Atlantic City, representing her Hoosiers on the Miss America stage where she won a talent award, paid her way through college and gained valuable life lessons that have molded her into the person she is today.
In 2005, Sarah left the corn fields of Indiana and moved to the hills of Tennessee where she was the Marketing & Events Director for the Wild Horse Saloon and Gaylord Entertainment. Sarah was responsible for marketing, planning and executing all events, leading a team, and auditioning and booking artists who performed at the venue.
Sarah has over 20 years of experience in event planning and flower production, but more than the experience, Sarah wanted to create something that would impact the lives of those around her. In May of 2007, Sarah created Regalo Design; a planning and floral studio.
Since that time, Sarah has planned and executed over 350 weddings and proposals, made over 2,500 bouquets, 10,000 arrangements and served over 100,000 guests across the United States. Sarah’s work has been featured on Buzz Feed, Popsurgar, MSN Lifestyle, The Huffington Post, Every Last Detail, Wedding Chicks, Desiree Hartsock, Southern Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes and Borrowed and Blue. Regalo Design has also won several industry awards including best planner and florist in Nashville.
Sarah’s favorite moment on a wedding day is one that very few actually get to see. When a bride is standing behind the closed doors, waiting to take her first step down the aisle, you can’t help but think of all of the steps in her life that led to this. In that moment, there is joy.
