unearthed weddings + events

a woodland living room for two.

Empath. Old Soul. Artist. Therapist. Creative Genius. Ex-Photographer. Sagittarius. Dreamer of Themes. Nature Lover. Rescue Mom. St. Paddy’s Day Bride. Handmade + DIY Queen. Sentimentalist. Detail Guru.

The list goes on and on… regardless of the many hats Sarah may wear, she is the creative genius behind unearthed weddings + events. Sarah has always been known for her creative and artistic abilities that are engulfed with sentiment and attention to detail. Sarah prides herself in being the master of eclectic and unique combinations of decor and design creating unique themes and customary blends of styling. Sarah is an artist by nature: beginning in her youth then expanding into her college career (fine arts, photography, and graphic design) and beyond. This means that whether its a thrift store DIY completed in-house or its a Neiman Marcus purchase, Sarah has a knack for making it all blend together cohesively (you should see her home, it’s so darling.) Did we mention her knack for organization and efficiency? It’s second to none. Not only does Sarah hold a Bachelors + Masters Degree, but she is also holds a certification from “We Do” in Wedding Planning and fell over the moon far before the execution her own big day!

“There’s not much I can’t envision or physically create and put together to make cohesive for branding and design of any event. I love the challenge of incorporating elements that ordinarily may not go together, but ultimately end up making a trademark statement. By no means am I traditional, and frankly, I don’t strive to be. My style is not for everyone, but that is what makes my services unique. That’s what makes my events memorable. I’m not afraid to go for it, ever.” -Sarah

Sarah was born and raised in Upstate, NY in a town that she claims “probably had more cows than people” and snowed 8 months out of the year. About 3 years ago, Sarah relocated to the Raleigh, NC area to be with Patrick, a love interest local to her home-town who had relocated a decade prior to North Carolina. It’s a love story for the books! Prior to this venture, Sarah also was the Owner + Creator behind “foliage+fable”, an etsy shop and local artisan sold in various stores in the RTP area. Sarah’s creations included watercolors and canvas art, crystal and healing stone jewelry and hair accessories, and her most popular cedar-slice stud earrings. Together, Patrick and Sarah (newlyweds!) reside in Youngsville, NC in their beautiful home (half home, half studio, of course) with their black lab mix (Cole), black cat (Salem), and their chinchilla (Atlas). Post-Graduate School, Sarah has been working as a Therapist in the Addiction field since 2010. Sarah has high hopes to transition to a full-time event stylist and wedding planner within the next few years. Because Sarah has worn so many hats, the sky is really the limits with how she can design and impact your event, from tiny details to massive manifestations.

What is “unearthed”? + Why? There is really no better fitting word by definition. To dig, to search, to find if kept by secret – it is all so fitting to Sarah’s personality and her truly unique and eclectic style. Sarah also strives to utilize as many natural elements as possible into her styling process as she feels the best decorations are those that can be found right among the earths surface. Fun fact: Sarah and her husband sourced much of their decor from wooded areas and lakes in the Raleigh area through treks and hikes, snakes, and mud – they gathered quartz, driftwood, feathers, and rocks perfect for their own wedding day.

Sarah is incredible and easily the best decision we made in regards to planning our wedding! She took the stress off of me in the upcoming weeks and days before the wedding. She was always so calming, confident and I knew I could easily trust her to make our day the best! The day went so smoothly and both my husband and I truly had fun. We look back on the day and both agree we were able to enjoy the day to the fullest because Sarah handled everything! She took over the overwhelming task of communicating with vendors and setting up our day-of timeline. She also reviewed all of our contracts and made sure to follow through with every detail. Something that I couldn’t even wrap my head around, but Sarah handled it with ease. She was flexible and accommodating while working with new vendors and kept everyone in the loop. Sarah also recommended our DJ and flower vendor, which also turned out to be incredible! I was impressed with her professionalism and always knowing the right questions to ask. On the days before the wedding, she made sure to check in on me (the bride) just to ask how I was. Something that I SO appreciated, because those days were stressful! On the day of, she was there at every part of our day making sure we had everything we needed and made sure everything was running smoothly. Her services are priceless and Sarah is a GEM. We HIGHLY recommend her and can’t thank her enough for making our day truly the best!

I'm so glad our waitstaff team worked alongside Sarah this past weekend. She was extremely professional, organized, and just an absolute pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend her company; you will not be disappointed!

We recently had the privilege of working with Sarah for our big day, and we can say unequivocally that she is phenomenal. Sarah’s service was outstanding, and with her help and guidance, we had the wedding of our dreams! From the beginning, it was evident that Sarah was professional, knowledgeable, and punctual. Without being the least bit pushy, Sarah frequently checked in and guided us to ensure that every detail was how we wanted. She was exceptionally prompt in responding to emails and was always on-the-ball. Throughout the entire process, Sarah was organized and thorough. Her knowledge of every aspect of the industry was a great relief to two busy graduate students. Sarah understood everything from table arrangements to designing a beautiful ceremony. Without a doubt, she saved us a tremendous amount of time and headache. Sarah understood our vision and executed it to perfection. We had a family-oriented wedding at a local farmhouse venue. Fortunately for us, Sarah has superb taste and knew from the beginning exactly what we wanted. Perhaps she knew what we wanted better than we did! We cannot tell you how many times she was able to recommend touches–both large and small–that made our wedding so magical. Sarah also worked flawlessly with the various vendors we hired, and she gave us invaluable direction in contracting their services. She was instrumental in making sure everything was squared away with our vendors, so we could breathe easily in the weeks leading up to our wedding. The vendors themselves greatly appreciated her help and direction! Her professionalism and calm, collected manner translated into excellent working relationships with everyone. Sarah proactively anticipated our needs and coordinated with confidence. On the big day itself, we did not have a worry in the world and were able to focus on the main event- marrying each other! After working with Sarah leading up to the wedding, we knew we could trust her completely. We would 100% recommend Sarah + Unearthed Events to any couple who value authentic, comprehensive and quality service! There is something so very significant and intimate about crafting your wedding day, and throughout the entire process, Sarah was thoughtful, caring, and patient. We are beyond grateful to have worked with Sarah for our wedding, and it is impossible to imagine our big day without her. Thank you, Sarah! Love, Becky & Brian G.

We can't say enough wonderful things about Sarah and in case you aren't able to read this whole review – the short story is she's absolutely awesome and you should 1000% hire her for wedding coordination! Sarah worked with my husband and I recently for wedding coordination which started just over a month before our wedding day and carried through the wedding weekend. We were married at a venue that holds weddings, but weddings are not their primary business so there were no required/recommended vendors. My husband and I searched and complied an awesome team of people to make the day special and Sarah ended up being not only highly appreciated, but also highly necessary. She reviewed our contracts with other vendors, recommended specific vendors we hadn't yet found, and helped coordinate a timeline for the day amongst many other things. She was willing to meet us at our venue (over an hour away from her home) multiple times to make sure we were comfortable going in to the day and with her design/style background, she even helped with some day-of decor and made/brought some signs for us to use. As a couple that was on the fence about hiring a wedding coordinator and wanted to take care of most things ourselves, we can't recommend Sarah and her services highly enough. Her attention to detail, her caring and compassion for getting to know us and help us through the planning process, and her sense of style are truly second to none. A few other details of our wedding: outside venue in Chapel Hill, NC in October; 170 guests; large wedding party; with the exception of rentals/venue, no vendors had previously worked together. Please reach out to Sarah and get my contact information if you have any questions at all!
