A Note from Sarah

Thank you for considering us for your event planning and venue needs. We know you have many choices and we are honored to be one of them.

A little about us… My company’s most recent champagne moment was the heartwarming celebration we had for our 10th anniversary in July 2016. It was a milestone I have dreamed of achieving, and now that we have surpassed that mark, the team and I are dreaming even bigger! I truly believe that the continued success of All About Events comes from a few essential components. Staying true to our customer service standards, having a passionate team of dedicated, hardworking women that put our customers’ needs first, and the amazing client reviews and referrals that we receive has kept us growing in this industry. The companies culture revolves around the power of relationships, as it has proven to be the root of existence. Relationships are formed and strengthened with everyone from our couples and their families as well as each event professional we have the pleasure of working with. Additionally, being willing to take risks or doing the unthinkable when needed and doing whatever it takes to ensure the event is executed successfully is what makes us different.

Whether you are in need of event planning services, or are considering one of the truly unique venues we represent; our promise to you is that your vision and desires will be heard, your planning process will be enjoyable, and your event will leave you and your guests wanting more and loving life. We are at your disposable every step of the way and will ensure we leave you with a lasting impression.

With love,

Sarah Zaun

Chef Tess is a native New Yorker and began her culinary career in the Hudson Valley at age 14. She was on the opening team for the Apple Pie Bakery Cafe at The Culinary Institute of America, their youngest employee to date. Her early work at historic resort and hotel properties eventually led her to cooking on board The Delta Queen, an authentic paddlewheel steamboat sailing the entire Mississippi River Valley. She jumped ship in 2005 and relocated to Savannah, Georgia, leading the banquet department at an historic Holiday Inn property. Upon her return to New York, Tess apprenticed under an Alsatian chef for many years, developing her technique and love for classic French cuisine. She was first named Executive Chef at 25, and continued to open restaurants and manage food service operations until she returned to school in 2010. Chef Tess holds a B.S. degree from the City University of New York in Food Service Administration and an M.S. from Tulane University in Disaster Resilience. While in New Orleans, she transitioned from traditional restaurant work and found a new passion for teaching culinary arts and sciences to aspiring home cooks and young professionals in the industry. Chef Tess actively engages in her community with internship and volunteer opportunities at local food banks, urban farms, and disaster relief services.
