Hi! I’m Sarah Petersen, aka Pete! I started working in hospitality over 15 years ago and have been planning weddings & events for over 12 years.
Sincerely Pete Events is the natural step to take with my background in event planning, sales and management. I bring a uniquely diverse background of experience including event planning for the military, associations, nonprofit organizations, hotels and conference centers and private social functions as well as sales, marketing, branding, social media management, fundraising as well as operating a number of highly successful private event venues.
I specialize in wedding & event coordination, event design, conference/meeting coordination, branding, social media and event/business consulting.
I’m passionate about my local community and being a Washingtonian, networking and collaboration. I’m love being able to relate to people of all walks of life including same-sex wedding couples who, like myself, want to see themselves more fully represented in the events industry.
On a personal note, I love travel & sunshine, folk music, sailing & anchors, farmers markets, cooking family dinners & a good whiskey cocktail or glass of Pinot Noir. I’m a former opera singer & big band front-lady who still plays piano and is learning ukulele.
I live in Georgetown with my future wife & our two dogs, Lola & Miles. We’re planning our own wedding in Positano, Italy for the fall of 2016!
