Meet Sarah and Chelsea

Sarah Glick and Chelsea LaFollette are the magic makers at Brilliant Event Planning. They believe there is something to celebrate in every moment, so just imagine how much they love their jobs! Together they own Brilliant Event Planning and plan marriage proposals, weddings, corporate events, and everything in between.

MEET SARAH Sarah's favorite part of wedding day is the first dance, but not because of the newlyweds! It's the moment when the grandparents join in for that first slow song. The team fondly calls her SG (even though technically she's SR now) and she's the team's smile instigator. She started freelancing for Brilliant after graduating with a degree in Psychology from McGill University in Montreal. She fell in love with weddings and never left. Now she co-owns the company with Chelsea.  When she's not planning weddings...she's planning weddings. SG is the President of the New York Chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding, which grants weddings wishes to couples facing terminal illness or catastrophic life circumstances. Other interests include hiking mountains with her husband, traveling, a good glass of wine, Pure Barre, sunny weekends outdoors with family, snuggling with her fat cat Pip, and gummy bears.

Meet Chelsea Chelsea's favorite part of wedding day is when the father of the bride tears up at the sight of his daughter in her wedding dress - it gets her every time! Chelsea surprisingly got her start in weddings after completing her first year of law school. She realized she wanted a career that made her excited to go to work every day, so she set off to it! After managing the operations and expansion of a gourmet food company, she joined Sarah's team at Brilliant and never looked back! When she's not planning events, Chelsea can be found in her kitchen creating something delicious. She shares this love with not only her family and friends, but also often cooks for local homeless shelters because she strongly believes a good meal can change everything. Other interests include snuggling her niece and nephew, raiding home decor stores, searching for the stinkiest cheese (ask about her family's dairy farm!), and traveling with her husband.
