Introducing ...





Dreams are precious to me. 
So much so that sometimes I have a hard time telling anyone about them. 
 I am guarded at times, in more ways than I would care to admit.
I fear their reaction.
I don't want them to discourage me with a look,  words  I deem careless, or an outright dismissal.
I don't wish I was any less sensitive.  I admire transparency, emotion, an abandonment to ice queen in other people.  And it's time for me to admire that in myself.  
I have always seen and felt everything on an entirely different level.
That's the INFJ in me.

Thus, why I've been reluctant to tell anyone about what I have been wanting to do for sometime now.
It has always been a dream of mine. 
 But one I thought someone else was lucky and talented enough for, surely not me.  {see this post}
Even when countless people have told me for years that i'd be perfect at this.
I began telling my husband, my mom, my best friends, and people i've "met" on the  interweb that i knew 
would shoot me straight.  
I prayed.  and prayed.  
I asked Amazing people who to say I admire would be taking it very lightly, in the industry, that were so incredibly encouraging I really had to pinch myself.
I first started telling the people that "get it" on the creative front.  
Everyone came back to tell me similar things:
You HAVE to do this. // You were MADE for this.  // This is your CALLING.
... and my feathers would puff up.  i'd gain confidence!  
... and then one person would roll their eyes.  or just wouldn't say anything but look at me with wide wondering eyes as if to say "you poor lost dreamer of a soul".  ha.
just a few ... and I'd crumple to bits.
but i am over it.
over seeking approval.  
Because Gods been more than nudging, and the faith He has put in my heart is enough for me to follow my dreams.
 i know in my soul  that I will be exceptional at this.
and my heart just isn't wrong y'all.
there's nothing rash about this decision, as i've been plotting, researching, dreaming ever since 2009.


i am detail oriented, a natural planner, a celebrate-a-holic, and incredibly quick to discover solutions.  
with killer taste. {yes, i just said that}
i am absolutely T totally in love with love. 
celebrations where love stories are rejoiced is exactly where i belong.


So...
After being in a number of weddings, planning my own, and others ... 
I'm opening up:





 full {and a la carte} styling, design, and planning company.
Sarah Tucker Events is a 


I'm working with the most talented, passionate, creative people to bring the site live in the next month.  
I cannot wait to share it with you!


But since you all have encouraged me in more ways than you'll ever know, I wanted to give you dibs.
oh and if you'd like to be my cheerleader in the comments below you can be sure I'll be blowing you kisses from FL.

  14. Sarah Tucker. You, my dear, are going to be FABULOUS at this.

    Let me tell you - when I was planning my wedding (which happened in June of 2011), I was obsessed with Style Me Pretty. Loved it. Ate it up daily. But no wedding stunned me more than yours. Every aspect of it was simply gorgeous - right down to your dress, which I've already told you I fell in love with. Then hunted down and wore on my own wedding day.

    If your own wedding is any indication of how talented you are at planning events, I'm sure you will become an unforgettable name in the wedding world :)

    Congratulations!

  23. This is so wonderful! The whole time I was reading it, I was just dying of anticipation of what you were going to be revealing...and when I saw it, it made soooo much sense! That is amazing!

    My husband and I eloped the weekend before he deployed to Iraq, always thinking we would have a wedding once he was back. Well, 3 years later, we still never got to have our wedding. Im hoping we still can someday...and if we do, I'd love for you to help us!

    Congratulations on taking this step! I cant wait to hear more about it as things really take off!

    ReplyDelete
  31. First of all, congratulations, best wishes, and many blessings on your new venture! I think you'll be fabulous at it, and I am so pumped for you for following your dreams! Second, I have been reading the blog for a couple of months now and maybe you said it before and I missed it, but I was shocked to see you are an introvert! Love me the Myers Briggs! I am an ESFJ. :)

  32. Oh girl-may Florida be uber-blessed by you as a wedding planner!!!! What God has put in your heart, let no one remove :) He is so faithful to give us the desires of our hearts and I am so excited for you in this and obviously...you are going to rock the coast :)

  34. sarah, this is amazing news and its totally made me smile over here in Abu Dhabi :) What an inspiring post. Im so proud of you! I would LOVE you to help me plan my wedding next July... finding it quite stressful planning it all by myself, esp. when im planning it from a whole other country. Don't suppose you're services stretch as far as the UK though ;-( xoxo

  35. Long time reader, first time commenter. (haha that reminds me of sleepless in seattle when everyone calls into the radio show) I found you through Jess' site, she shot my wedding too. anyways, good for you! I was the exact same way about photography. I've been passionate about it for as long as I can remember but would rarely tell a soul for the very same reason you gave. People should be careful about the looks they give or the things they say. It can really get someone down for people who take it to the heart. People want to work with passionate people so you are going to be fabulous at this! Best of luck in your ventures!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh my gosh Sarah this sounds amazing!!! And I completely believe you will just SOAR in this arena. I can tell just from your blog that you will be amazing at this. AMAZING. This is coming from someone who HATES planning things and would be a total failure in this area, and if I were to do a wedding or event? I would definitely hire someone JUST like you. Or, of course, I would hire YOU if you didn't live so darn far away from me!

    Love that God is squelshing your fears and letting you know that you will succeed at this, because I personally have no doubt that you.

    I LOVE seeing people follow their dreams and I am so looking forward to seeing more :)

  67. I think you're going to be absolutely amazing. I can totally relate to feeling like you want to keep things to yourself so people don't burst your bubble. I actually felt that way about starting my blog at first. But the only way to make yourself happy and be successful is to do exactly what you want and ignore other people. I'm sure you're going to be great at this, and I can't wait to see your events!

I am so so excited for you, Sadie!

    This must be so exciting for you and such a big step! And you are right to have the confidence to do it because you have amazing taste and talent in abudance!

    I am so excited for you!

    I like you am a bit of an open book with my emotions and sensitivity and have protected my dreams and ideas from others due to the rolling eyes; the people bringing me down the real world; and the laughin gfollowed by "really?" But this post has given me the confidence maybe to let people know them and at least given me a little confidence that maybe it can happen...you never know.

    Oh and CONGRATS again!!!

  82. so exciting!! congrats on your new venture!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I totally agree with you and your red photo quote. So many great, creative and inspiring people are holding themselves back, for what? because they are scared of other peoples reactions and they seek approval of the surroundings. Additionaly, they forget that not everyone has good intentions and empathy on their mind.

    I think you should do in life everything that makes you happy, what fullfils you and what you dream of. and with that kind of flare you will succeed and find your place and peace.

    This is going to be a great new adventure for you :)

  84. I am so happy for you! I have been reading you blog for the past year and I must say you truly are one of my style icons! I think you will be wonderful, I will be praying for you and blowing you kisses all the way from Montana!

  85. Oh Sarah, this is AMAZING!! Congratulations, beauty!! Pretty much since I started reading your blog I've wondered when in the world you would open a business like this. You clearly have such a beautiful talent for it!! I ADORE your taste and sense of style, and know that you will create the most gorgeous events imaginable. I don't plan on being engaged/married soon, but you can bet that when the time comes, I'll probably want you to make a little trip to TX to make my day special :) Congratulations again!!!!
