The feedback we receive from our clients and the wedding professionals we work with is a testament to Bella Notte’s dedication to creating seamless and elegantly executed weddings. In their own words. . .

"I can't, at this moment, speak for Abigail but I can most definitely speak for Jerry and myself when I say the wedding surpassed our wildest expectations and we simply could not be more pleased with your splendid performance Saturday evening and the hours, days, weeks and months that preceded the big night.

At each and every step along the way you provided solid guidance in the most cheerful and sensible manner. You know, we weren't shooting for perfection, but somehow we got it.

We will be telling everybody we see who is even thinking of a wedding that they would be crazy not to hire a wedding planner and they would be crazy not to hire you. Please send all potential clients our way so we can sing your praises."

"I 100% agree with my mom. I have already been telling my friends getting married, in places near and far, that a wedding planner is crucial! I so appreciate the work you did to help us pull off what was really an extraordinary, extremely happy day (dare we say... perfect). Your opinions were tremendously helpful, nd at times I think staved off major family battles - quite a statement, really. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Sarah, Mother of the Bride, and her daughter, Abby

Sara is just a joy to work with. If you’re planning a wedding and want someone who is detail-oriented but relaxed and fun-loving, then definitely consider Sara. We had the pleasure of working with her at a recent wedding in Washington, DC and were struck by how well she kept the day progressing, all the while maintaining a smile on her face. It was clear that other wedding professionals associated with this event enjoyed working with her as well, and we recommend her without reservation.

I want to thank you for all you did to make Sarah’s wedding a perfect one.  You are just wonderful and I can’t thank you enough. Just to let you know, Elliot, who was somewhat skeptical and resistant to the whole idea [of hiring a wedding planner] but was willing to go along, can’t stop singing your praises and saying it was the best money we spent on the whole wedding!

Karen , Mother of the Bride,

Sara is one of the best wedding planners we work with in the Washington, DC area. Her attention to detail and command of many moving pieces in a challenging and emotional field is unparalleled. Her sense of diplomacy is astounding. We highly recommend Sara, and are always delighted when we get the chance to work with her.

Gerry Rogers , Owner, Petal’s Edge Floral Design

From our first meeting, you made us feel comfortable that you understood our style and vision for the wedding. Throughout the planning phase, John and I were increasingly pleased with our decision to hire you as our wedding coordinator. Your professionalism, experience, and warm personality guided us through every decision. You made the task of planning our wedding a fun and enjoyable experience. Because of your help, we never felt the stress that frequently accompanies wedding planning – not even on the big day. In the end, our wedding was so beautiful, with every detail executed with seamless perfection. Thank you again for helping to create such a special day in our lives that we will always remember.

Kimberly and John

I now feel confident in saying that the best wedding planning related decision that I made was hiring you, Sara. You were so attentive to my vision of the wedding, down to the last detail. Not only were you meticulous in your planning, contacting all of the vendors, creating the timeline for the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and wedding (which you executed perfectly!), but you did everything with such enthusiasm. You were always such a pleasure to be around, and several of my vendors mentioned the same thing to me after the wedding. While I expected my wedding day to be wonderful in spite of the little things that would inevitably go wrong, I did not expect it to be perfect. But, it was. And I owe that entirely to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


My favorite vendor of all - Sara truly made our dreams come true! Everything I needed, Sara provided. She has an incredible command of the industry and is full of great ideas and creative solutions. I could never have pulled off the wedding of my dreams without her assistance!

Lindsey and Mark

The single best decision we made in planning this wedding was hiring Sara for day-of-coordination. The whole day was completely stress-free for me and I attribute that 100% to Sara’s efforts. Get a smaller cake, lose some flower arrangements, but don’t skip on quality day-of-services. Sara made my wedding day.
