Expertise in Planning


The amount of time that a professional wedding planner has to bring a dream wedding to life varies from couple to couple. However, Sari Sosa from Sari Sosa Events planned a stunning wedding in just three weeks for Mercedes and Tarik Hawatmeh. Each beautiful moment was captured by amazing photographer, Jorge Gonzalez Photography.


After gathering some details about Mercedes and Tarik’s wedding plans, Sari Sosa agreed to create the beautiful wedding day in three short weeks. The timing could not have been better for Mercedes and Tarik as Tarik’s sister would be graduating from medical school around the same time as the wedding. Because Tarik’s family flew from Lebanon and Jordon for the graduation, his family members would be in America to see the wedding day.


The first task that Sari Sosa completed was the invitations. She worked with Lilian Designs to have a proof ready that afternoon. Then, Sari Sosa spoke with wonderful vendors to make sure the event would happen at such short notice. The vendors were up to the challenge, and Rick from Avant-Gardens created such a beautiful setting for the wedding day from gorgeous florals to stunning décor.




Sari Sosa also found the perfect venue for the ceremony and reception to take place even at such short notice, The Biltmore. Mercedes knew she wanted a very colorful wedding with vibrant fuschias, oranges, purples, and golds.


The wedding décor was absolutely breathtaking. Avant-Gardens created beautiful floral arrangements with hydrangeas, callas, roses, and mokara orchids. The linens gave a rich look to compliment the details of the Biltmore. Weathered golds and rustic inspired accents gave the reception an old world feeling accented with Moroccan lanterns throughout the space.


When great, professional vendors are involved in wedding planning, tasks can be fulfilled even in a few weeks. Every detail of the wedding was taken care of as a result of having such a great wedding planner, Sari Sosa, who has had many years of wedding panning experience. Sari Sosa also kept a very optimistic attitude towards the event, which helped bring the wedding to life.



In just three weeks, Sari Sosa Events created a breathtakingly gorgeous wedding for Mercedez and Tarik Hawatmeh. Sari Sosa’s expertise in wedding planning truly shines throughout each beautiful element and image by Jorge Gonzalez from the wedding day.
