Meet Sarah Bond

Event Planner Extraordinaire


I'm Sarah, owner and lead planner of Grace and Gold Events. I was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky but moved in Southern California in 2012. I have such an amazing husband who believes in my dreams and I have a baby boy named Ollie whose cheeks you just want to kiss all the time!

I have always known I wanted to be a wedding planner since I was a young girl. I started working for a catering company at the age of 16 where I learned key elements of planning but also was able to see how the catering staff works at an event. The more I became involved with a local catering company the more I fell head over heels in love with weddings. Someone recently asked me "Why did I decide to get into the wedding industry?" and I had the simplest answer, "I am a people person and love to be around happy people. There is no one happier than on a wedding day!" 

Grace and Gold Events home base is in San Diego but I love to travel as often as I can! This year Grace and Gold Events will be heading to Palm Springs, Orange County, Los Angeles and Kentucky! 

I am a huge fan of a great bread pudding, a glass of Wilson Creek Almond Champagne and a great Lilly Pulitzer dress!  


XOXO, Sarah 

Love Letters

From Our Couples

"Sarah at Grace and Gold Events was everything and more when it came to wedding planning! From the start she was excited and attentive to our wedding desires! We especially loved her willingness to meet with our vendors at our destination when we were unable to make the trip! She offered constructive and honest advice, showed attention to detail and was full of energy during rehearsal and our wedding evening! She is an absolute thrill to work with and went above and beyond for me as the bride... She went out of her way to get blister protector's for me last minute when my wedding shoes TORE my feet up. She's amaze and you would be lucky to have her plan your wedding!"
Maggie + Mike
"From the first day I met Sarah, I knew she would be the perfect person to help organize and plan the wedding. She is organized, hard-working and very easy to work with. I had a general idea of the items I wanted and what I wanted included in the wedding, and Sarah made it happen. On the Day of the Wedding, she was solving problems before I even got a chance to ask her about them. She made sure we were well taken care of on the day of the Wedding and everything went seamlessly. I will definitely recommend her and her team to anyone who is looking for an Events planner. Thank you Sarah."
Kathy + Graham
"If you are getting married and would like help planning your big day, I highly recommend Grace & Gold events! My husband and I are extremely grateful and thankful to have worked with Sarah. She made the wedding planning process as stress free as possible for us. Sarah's organizational skills, attention to detail, responsiveness, and professionalism far exceeded our expectations. We don't know what we would have done without her. She worked with our vendors and asked the questions we didn't even know to ask. She executed our vision perfectly and was the number one reason our wedding day was stress free. We knew we had nothing to worry about because Sarah was there keeping everything organized and perfect. We are so glad to have met Sarah and work with Grace & Gold events. Thank you Sarah for making our day so special and memorable!"
Michelle + Eugene
"I don't even know where to begin. I found Sarah by accident after signing up for a Calligraphy class at my wedding venue a few months prior to my wedding. We knew we needed a planner but after meeting with a few here and there, we never found anyone we loved and knew we wanted for our wedding. After meeting with Sarah for five minutes, I knew she was the one we wanted for our special day. Sarah thought of every detail, and more. Our day was absolutely perfect. She took care of EVERYTHING! (all while being pregnant, I might add.) We had no hiccups and our day was flawless. From the first meeting I took with Sarah, I knew she was the planner for us. She was always there with advice or any questions I had. Our bridal party, parents and even guests complimented Sarah on several occasions. Sarah, You're the best! Our wedding day was beyond perfect."
Taylor + Eric
"The first time I talked to Sarah, she was walking up a hill getting her fit on. I knew right then and there she was the one I wanted to be my Day of Coordinator. She is super organized, helped me think of things I hadn't even thought about and recommended a great florist (The David Rohr Floral Studio). She also helped find a last minute videography! My 91 year old grandmother wasn't able to make the trip to palm springs and we wanted her to see the ceremony. Sarah found a videographer month away form the wedding date. She's the best! I would highly recommend Grace & Gold Events for your next event!"
