When it comes time to celebrating life’s biggest moments, there’s one thing you should expect: excellence. And that’s what SG3 Events delivers. 

Maybe it’s our decades of experience planning and executing weddings and events in the DC area. Maybe it’s our dedication to providing stellar customer service. Maybe it’s our focus on curating events that reflect your lifestyle and wow your guests. Maybe it’s our roster of
high caliber vendors we refer our clients to.
Maybe it’s our refined taste, or incredibly high standards. 

Whatever the reason, you should know that we don’t do anything less than excellent!

About

That’s why I started SG3 Events in 2019 — because we all deserve more celebrations in our life. And my hot take? 

Every event should be one to remember. A party with substance, that tells the story of who you are, and does it
with style!

I’m Sarah Nickens, and I’m the kind of person who can’t enjoy a concert. I love live music, of course, but while most folks are jamming out to the artist on stage, I’m wondering who is controlling the lighting, noticing the transitions between songs, and thinking of little tweaks that could have made the event better. I can’t help it — I love prooducing events! I always have; there’s just something so special about celebrations and overseeing all the details is my Jam!

I assist with planning all of your event details, like securing top-notch vendors, coordinating logistics, and answering your questions along the way. I obsess over the little details that will make your day unique and incredibly special. Simply put, my job is to make your vision become a reality. And the only thing that makes me happier than seeing your smiling face at the end of the party, is going home to raise a glass of red wine and cheers a job well done!
