Fun Facts about Sarah Glick

Posted by SarahAug 26, 2014

As we’ve said before, we’ll be spending a lot of time learning more about you and your partner as we help to plan your marriage proposal or wedding. So, it’s only fair to share a bit more about us! Here are top 10 interesting facts about the wonderful Sarah Glick, you can read my top ten interesting facts here.  Surprised by what you see?  Leave a comment below.

1.  I love crime shows – real or fake. The more gore, the happier I am.

2.  I don’t own a TV, so I only get to watch things live at the gym. If I had at TV at home, I would be really out of shape.

3.  I hate beach vacations that last longer than a weekend.

4.  Used book stores are a constant distraction for me. I love the smell and feel of old books. Sometimes I even buy really old books and then never read them.

5. Wine, cheese, coffee, and chocolate are all fast track ways to my heart

6.  I am bad at all sports – love watching them, but I am way safer on the bench than on the field. However, I am a complete sucker for all fad exercise classes and hiking/climbing.

7.  Misha and I have a weekend tradition of trying new bakeries – generally this means 1 almond croissant, 1 chocolate croissant, and one new baked good. I then like to try to figure out a recipe for the new one – baking is my second passion.

8.  I’m currently learning Russian.

9.  I have a serious case of Wanderlust. If I won the lotto, I would quit my job (sorry!) and travel to every country.

10.  Morning sing-a-longs are an essential part of my daily routine. My guilty pleasure music is anything from the 90s and any genre of music that has an unexpected rap verse.

Fun Facts about Sarah Pease

Posted by SarahAug 26, 2014

Since you’ll be sharing a ton about you and your partner over the coming weeks and months, you might be curious to learn a little bit more about us, so here are 10 fun facts about me. You can learn more about Sarah Glick here. Surprised by what you see?  Leave a comment below.

1. I’m fluent at a native level in Spanish. People ask me what country I’m from, not where I learned it.

2. When I was a freshman in college, I worked as a bank teller and was held up at gunpoint.

3.  A silly pet peeve is extra time left on the microwave. I also dislike sharing food.

4. I’m a classically trained violinist and pianist. Classical music is what I listen to when I want to relax.

5. My passport will tell you that I’ve traveled to over 25 countries in the past five years.  I’ve lived in 5 countries on three continents.

6.  I’m an insatiable learner. I devour books (and am a scary-fast reader), podcasts and magazines and am a big believer that you can always improve.

7. Presidential politics, Native American history, small business tips and wine are just a few of the topics that I’m constantly learning about. I do enjoy a good Bossypants/Chelsea Handler type of book from time to time, too.

8. I can dance some serious salsa. New York Style is my least favorite.  “On one” is my default and my absolute favorite is a style that originated in Cuba called Rueda de Casino. It involves learning hundreds of unique spins and is typically done in a group with a caller, similar to square dancing. You can see what it looks like here.

9. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I’m a terrible cook, but a great eater.

10. For the past few years, I’ve been dedicating time to the wedding industry charity, Wish Upon a Wedding, which gives weddings to couples facing life-threatening illness. I serve on the National Board as National Marketing Chair and on the New York Board as Wish Coordinator Chair.

Wish Upon a Wedding New York

Posted by SarahOct 10, 2013

With Central Park as the backdrop, Le Parker Meridien Hotel provided the perfect location for a beautiful breakfast that joined together wedding industry pros with media experts.   I’m proud to be a Board Member of Wish Upon a Wedding New York.  Wish Upon a Wedding is an organization that makes it possible for couples facing terminal illness or other serious circumstances to have a dream weddings or vow renewal through the generosity of donations from local wedding professionals. With 60 wishes already being granted nationwide, we hosted a breakfast to share our successes and forge new partnerships.  We were especially honored to have famed designer Nicole Miller speak about how terminal illness has touched her life and her support for Wish Upon a Wedding.  If you’d like to donate to couples in need, please contact newyorkvolunteer@wishuponawedding.org.

Trend Alert: Food Trucks

Posted by Sarah PeaseDec 13, 2012

Step aside food stations, there’s a new catering trend in town! Food trucks! This food trend has quickly become a staple of the after party and more recently, of the reception itself. The food truck ups the fun factor and allows guests to put their own spin on dinner. Now, if only every wedding venue had a place to park a truck or two!
