Designer & Decor Obsessed Wedding Planner Who Knows How To Throw A Damn Good Party…

Hi Friends, I’m Sarah….

Welcome To Shades of Teal 


In other words, you’re looking at your wedding’s Biggest Fan

Shades of Teal Creative Co began as a Design and Decor Company in 2017, specializing in Vintage decor rentals.

What started as a creative outlet and a desire to grow my love of design quickly grew into a dream of owning a full-fledged design and decor rental company serving the wedding community. In 2019 we added our charmingly intimate venue and the Photography Studio, and Shades of Teal Creative Co came to life!

Collaboration with our local creative community is the heart of what we do at Shades of Teal - from decor that spans vintage boho to midcentury modern and eclectic styles with whimsical touches, we have styles to serve all couples!

Travel is my love language! If your love story is taking you outside of Michigan for your wedding, then we definitely need to talk. You bring the joy, and I will take care of all the details to ensure your wedding is unforgettable! 


I believe you should trust your gut. Sure, I could tell you a whole bunch of great things about what I can do, but I would much rather show you and let you decide. Let’s meet, over zoom or for a cup of coffee, you pick! Let’s really get to know each other! 


Thanks to Sarah, our ceremony was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Covid has sure been overwhelming. But do you know what was not? Planning our wedding. Shades of Teal in Vassar is an outstanding venue. Sarah is very easy to work with and she was able to put everything we wanted into our special day. She does an beautiful job decorating and makes you feel very welcomed. I want to have another event, just so she can organize it for me. Thank you Sarah!

If you are looking for a very intimate wedding I highly recommend booking with Shades of Teal!

We were so impressed with the decorations and how smoothly everything went. We had no idea what anything was going to look like (my choice) and Sarah completely exceeded our expectations. I showed her a picture of my dress for color inspiration and said “work your magic” and she did just that! We received so many compliments from our guests and even friends and family that were not there and just saw pictures. Jené did a fantastic job officiating our ceremony and made us feel very comfortable. Thank you Sarah and Jené for making our special day absolutely perfect! 

I've gotten so many compliments from my guests saying our wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings ever .

My fiance and I were engaged for years and really wanted to have a small simple affordable wedding. It's so stressful to plan that ( let's be real). While scrolling through FB one day I saw a listing for POP UP WEDDINGS . It sounded just what I was looking for for the right price ! My fiance thought it was too good to be true ! It was beautiful , everything I could of asked for in my dream wedding and so much more . We got married in the forest summer 2019 . I've gotten so many compliments from my guests saying our wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings ever . That's all thanks to Shades of teal! If your looking for stress free wedding planning that's so so affordable. Go with Shades of teal ! Sarah does such beautiful work you will not be disappointed!

Are We The Perfect Fit?

If you know anything about Sevens, you know they love spontaneity, adventure, and building relationships through incredible experiences. Sounds like all the elements to a great party, doesn’t it? Is it any wonder that I have made a business out of throwing one hell of shindig?

Even my coffee likes to party! One part sweet & creamy goodness, one part coffee disguised as a milkshake. All I know is it’s a good time in a cup, and I am here for it!

 I LOVE all the puppies, but there is just something about cuddles with a fluffy golden retriever that makes life instantly joyful, don’t you agree?

Motherhood has me asking WTF all the time! I want to show my children how to find fun and adventure no matter what the situation! For this reason, you may see them around our venue because I believe wholeheartedly that the greatest gift I can give them is for them to see me building a life doing what I love.

WTF….Where’s The FUN?

My favorite part of any travel adventure is exploring what outdoor wonders are available. From hiking and camping to see natural rock formations, I am always inspired by new places and the beauty this world has to offer!
