Small team. Big moments. A lifetime of happiness. We aren't your average planners. People hire us because they want a wedding or marriage proposal that is extraordinary. Our clients are intensely busy professionals that depend on us to make their planning process stress-free and to discover what will make their day uniquely special. We make design and planning simple for our clients - and simple isn't easy.
Born at the intersection of clever and creative, Brilliant Event Planning harnesses the power of emotion to make your most important day less stressful and more beautiful. At our core, we are a culture of action and imagination.
Do you want your wedding or marriage proposal to be different? Be Brilliant.
Small town girl. Big city vision. Sarah Pease was raised in the blue-collar town of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Curiosity drew her to become bilingual in Spanish and live on three different continents. Smarts made her a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar. Hard work made her a top banking exec at the young age of 23. A desire for a life outside of spreadsheets changed her path to designing weddings and marriage proposals. Her love for a Dublin-born lad made her a wife. An addiction to Diet Pepsi and a weakness for pizza makes her human.
Smile instigator. Logistical mastermind. Sarah Glick has an innate ability to connect the dots between clients and vendors, between complex creative ideas and the steps to pulling them off. Before she came to Brilliant, Sarah Glick earned her degree from McGill University and worked for one of the nation’s wealthiest families. When she’s not designing and planning dream weddings and proposals, Sarah Glick can be found traveling the world in search of more stamps for her passport, or in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes.
Detail ninja. Coordination pro. Whether an event was planned last year or last week, Chelsea has a knack for making everything run smoothly. As our superstar coordinator, she takes what’s in a client’s mind and brings it to life. Before joining Brilliant, she graduated from Boston College and managed the expansion and day-to-day operations of a successful gourmet food business. When she's not making events run smoothly you can find her hosting exquisite dinner parties and traveling to far-flung destinations.
"You have been truly amazing and that is an understatement! You're the best! You had such creative & awesome concepts and saved us from so much stress and most importantly prevented many arguments that would have taken place had we planned this wedding without you!
Your positive attitude, no matter what, kept us going! Thank you so much we are truly, truly appreciative."
Thank you for putting so much time, energy and heart into our weekend.
So many people were impressed with you; some mentioned they wanted to do their weddings over again and hire you to do it, others simply wanted to take you home with them and have you as their new best friend!
Thank you for so much for making our wedding so special. From the first moments we met, I knew you would be perfect for us…then you went and surpassed my expectations over and over again.
What can I say? We would have been lost without you. Thank you for holding our hands through this process, and for pushing us when we needed it. Most importantly, thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams, and for being such a joy to work with during the process.
We are still so amazed at how perfect everything was…and we know how much of that is a result of you (bribing construction workers with lunch?!) Thank you for everything from the bottom of our hearts.
