About Quintessential Events

Sarah Quinlivan, the owner and lead planner of Quintessential Events & PR, LLC, has been involved in planning events since she was a teenager. After years spent in the advertising and public relations industry and working with another event planner on the side, she knew she wanted to do something bigger and more meaningful. She wanted to directly help couples plan this once in a lifetime moment.


In 2015, she started Quintessential Events with the mission of providing every couple with the same experience she had when she got married – a stress-free, unforgettable day.


For any couple, planning a wedding can be overwhelming thanks to the sheer amount of details that need to be thought through and carefully planned. She truly believes it is these small details that matter most, and are what keep guests talking about your wedding for years. You will often hear her telling her couples, “There is no detail about your wedding that I don’t what to know about.” From making sure there are flip flops for the ladies by the dance floor to arranging transportation for the entire weekend, you can rest assured everything will be well planned.


Quintessential Events take the time to truly understand their couples – who they are, what they want and what really matters to them. We use this insight to create a wedding that is one-of-a-kind, and is perfectly inline with the couple’s vision. We believe this approach along with superior organizational skills, straight to the point communication style and down to earth demeanor are what sets Sarah and Quintessential Events apart. That and her sense of humor and love for big hugs!
