Wild Thyme Event Studio as seen on @offbeatbride

Wild Thyme Event Studio was founded on Sarah Acconcia's love of parties, DIY, delicious food, craft cocktails, and all-around creativity. Wild Thyme specializes in offbeat and alt weddings. If your wedding is going to be in a ballroom, or require satin chair covers, then Wild Thyme might not be for you…if you want taxidermy centerpieces, or all black florals, then please inquire within!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I was an Offbeat Bride myself! When I was planning my own wedding, I discovered that I felt a bit marginalized. Nothing I wanted was "right," according to the Wedding Industrial Complex. I didn't have the right body for a wedding dress, I didn't want to rent expensive trailer port-a-potties (ughWHY), we refused a traditional venue or ceremony…you get the idea. Worse, there weren't really any standout wedding planners in my area that catered to us "offbeat" folks. So I decided to take all my service industry experience and start a wedding & party planning business myself!

I can't wait to hear all of your dream wedding ideas, and to work with you to make them happen. I can do as much or as little as you need. Let's make something weird & amazing that you will remember forever!

"We found Wild Thyme Event Studio through Offbeat Bride. We had booked most of our vendors by that point, but were getting overwhelmed by all the little details and the decorations. We were having a Halloween wedding and wanted someone who would embrace our theme instead of just going with it – and that’s exactly what Sarah did! She met with us twice in person (initial consultation and venue walkthrough) and answered lots of questions through text and email. She helped us come up with decoration ideas and eased so much stress just by being there! For the day of the wedding, there were a bunch of decorations that we handed to her in boxes and said “do something with these, please”. Sarah reached out to our vendors the week of the wedding to confirm all of the details. Sarah and her assistant, Annie, really got into our Halloween theme – they even dressed up in costume! They did a fantastic job with decorating our venue. They incorporated all of our decorations in fun and gorgeous ways, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing! After the wedding was over, Sarah and Annie broke everything down and packed everything up for us so quickly, it was ready and waiting for us by the time we had changed out of our wedding costumes. We would highly recommend Sarah and Wild Thyme Event Studio for wedding planning and our only regret is not booking her from the very beginning!"

"The day of was perfect with delightful and unexpected details in decor set-up, surprise bingo cards with our names printed on them <3 and she even rolled up her sleeves helping behind the bar."

"Sarah was very easy to get a hold of and very responsive, she met with us beforehand and got a sense of who we were and exactly what we needed to make our wedding day move smoothly, we had an extremely DIY wedding so there was a lot to be done. The day of my wedding she and Colin took care of every little detail and let my husband and I enjoy our day. They made the day move seamlessly and if there were any issues, I have no clue since they didn't let me feel like there were.

Sarah is very talented and is an easy going and approachable vendor, we couldn't be happier that we took a chance on her. All brides, especially those who are doing DIY weddings could really benefit from her." – Fareeha, September 2015 Bride
