A little bit about me (and you!)...

Sarah Carroll Founder of Small Shindigs Weddings and Event Planning San Francisco

Hi, I'm Sarah!

Over the years I've worked in industries including hospitality, the arts, and tech. While the types of events have varied, the common thread has always been the people. Small Shindigs was created out of a desire to bring people together and I believe that intimate gatherings foster the best connections. After years of doing events for up to 1,800 people, I've realized that big moments happen in small spaces. 

Whether you are looking to have a dinner party with friends or plan your intimate wedding, I will help create an experience that authentic and memorable. From beer tractors to flower bikes, I’ve seen lots of unique event elements, but it’s most important that the event reflects you.

When I work with a client, I am focused on bringing your idea to life, while communicating with you every step of the way. I take a personal approach to every event I plan and feel strongly that no detail is too small. I love working with the in-between couple—those who may want more than a courthouse style elopement but less than a 200-person full-blown extravaganza. Above all else, I enjoy supporting those who want to co-create their day together.

After six years in NYC, I decided it was time for a change of scenery and headed out to San Francisco. Now, I’m creating moments that matter for you on both the east and west coasts.
