Sarah Pease, The Proposal Planner: Subject-Matter Expert on Marriage Proposals and Engagements
Marriage proposal and engagement expert, Sarah Pease, is the pioneer of marriage proposal planning. Sarah has made her mark by designing and producing hundreds of dream marriage proposals in New York City and around the world.
Described as a true people-person, her success can be attributed to her genuine likeability coupled with a keen sense for what makes men (and the women they propose to) tick. She's equally as comfortable discussing football and finance as she is shopping for the perfect diamond ring for her clients.
Sarah began her career in the banking industry, but quickly realized that spreadsheets and interest rates weren't her passion. As the daughter of a small business owner, and armed with her MBA studies, she quit her job and started her company, Brilliant Event Planning, focusing on planning high-end weddings in New York City. When she learned that an acquaintance had popped the question by putting a gorgeous diamond ring at the bottom of a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, the idea of proposal planning was born.
Proposal Planning at its Best
With a client list including some of the world's most elite men and women, she has created countless memorable engagement stories. From elaborate proposals like the big screen in Times Square and a private serenade by American Idol celebrity Katherine McPhee, to more intimate ones like a log cabin in the French Alps and a glamorous yacht in Miami, she is the go-to person for dream marriage proposals. Her happy customers include celebrities and professional athletes, Wall Street bankers and industry leaders. She has on-camera experience (both live and pre-recorded including hosting) and is in development for tv show on proposals with a major network. Her expert advice on marriage proposals and engagement ideas has been featured on The Today Show, ABC Nightline, E! Entertainment News, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Glamour, Chicago Tribune and various other media outlets.
Never a proposal snob, Sarah says that the most important part of proposal planning is getting a yes. It's her belief that no matter your budget, there is always a way to achieve a creative and unique proposal. Born and raised in the Midwest, she currently lives in New York City with her husband. When she's not busy planning dream marriage proposals, she can be found travelling the world or volunteering in adult job readiness with the New York Cares Foundation.
Sarah is available for press, speaking engagements and appearance as a subject-matter expert on marriage proposals and wedding planning.
