“I love to see my clients’ reactions to their event reveal, and when they say ‘it’s much more than I ever imagined’, my job is done.”
South-Asian weddings come with a grandeur and luxury. We translate that vision with the modern couple in mind. Our clients are savvy and educated who prefer quality over quantity. At SKES, Sarah hand selects each item that contributes to our vast inventory of unique pieces, selecting each piece with our clients’ particular tastes in mind. Once you book with us, our job is just getting started. We look for custom, international and opulent pieces that add that next level of depth in creating your event’s environment.
Our job is to translate your vision into an unforgettable, grand event that your guests will talk about for months and even years to come. We are overjoyed when we hear comments, like “Sarah and her team surprised me with an incredibly and refreshingly bold and beautiful stage, unique centerpieces, and programs for our wedding reception.”

We strive to create beauty behind the concepts we design. In creating events with meticulous detail and an applauded selection of embellishments and pairings for our events, we have attracted a client roster across many nationalities and ethnicities.
The Sarah Khan Event Styling client values quality, precision, customer service, communication and a passion for beauty in all it’s forms. We understand how difficult it is to balance wedding and special event planning, let’s be honest it’s like a full time job, alongside school, work and social obligations, it can be daunting to say the least. With all the possibilities of color schemes, themes and those amazing Pinterest DIY’s that you’re wondering if you’ll have the time to do before the big day, we step in and ask you all the right questions to gather the information we need to do what we do best, create your environment and all the pretty little things that will have your guests gushing!
From your dress colors, spectacular cake and dessert displays, table settings to the room layout, my team and I will work with you on all the visual details to create a cohesive ambiance and display you as the grand centerpiece of it all.
Our skilled team specializes in constructing Mandaps for Hindu weddings, Huppahs/Chuppahs for Jewish and fusion weddings, we weave together the intricate details of a Sofreh Aghd for our Persian clients, bridal party flowers including bouquets and boutonnieres as well as floral and non-floral centerpieces. We have a beautiful selection of furniture for stage setups for Arab, Indian, Pakistani and Bengali wedding decorations and special events. We provide extravagant linens for specialty tables such as cake tables, dessert tables and escort card tables. We service the Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia areas but love executing stunning events in surrounding states.
Sarah Khan was our top choice for decor because as soon as we saw photos of her work, we knew it was a perfect fit for us. We booked her for our Mehndi and wedding in Philadelphia on two consecutive nights. She has impeccable taste, an eye for color, and gorgeous reception stage designs. She is extremely creative and came up with lots of ideas that fit our style and budget. She is very friendly, organized, and easy to talk to – she really took the time to get to understand our vision. Sarah, Bharati, & their team are absolute pros! Our guests (and we!) were in awe at how beautiful our reception space looked. Highly recommended!

Sarah Khan developed an eye for creating beauty at a young age being surrounded by women in her family always striving to perfect the visual appeal and experience of onlookers of their projects in the home.
