About Sarah Valencia,

owner and planner behind Our Jonrah Events

Edmonton Best Wedding Planners

 

Hi! I’m Sarah, the owner and planner behind Our Jonrah Events. In 2018, I married my husband, and shortly after, Our Jonrah Events was born!

My passion for events and planning started young. I always loved to attend weddings and third wheel my parents even when I wasn’t invited. When it came to my career, I have a fashion and event management background. This led to opportunities in retail grand openings, hospitality and managing banquets, and creating corporate events to host VIP guests.

Planning gets my creative engine going and I absolutely love to bring wedding visions to life. I believe that your love story should be reflected in the details of your wedding and I’m here to provide a stress-free and fun journey you can look back on.

 

Let’s get to know your plans!

Passionate, Personable, and Published!

The Story Behind "Jonrah"

It all began when I realized my husband’s name, Jon Jon and my name, Sarah formed “Jonrah” and sounded like a real word- genre. I was smitten with this new found pun and a correlated definition that was defined as

a category of artistic composition, as in music or literature, characterized by similarities in form, style, or subject matter.

Jonrah quickly became #OurJonrah when we tied the knot and planned our wedding in six short months.

When it came to choosing a name for the business, adding Events to Our Jonrah was a natural extension of the name and provided an overarching reflection to my business; capturing a unique love story of two individuals, but also creating weddings defined like its own artistic category to be recalled and looked back on.

"Sarah would be there as an extension of us to ensure things were running efficiently and smoothly."

We knew from the moment we met Sarah that we would reach back out to her to ask her to be a integral part of our day; she is so friendly, kind, patient, warm, welcoming and - I cannot stress this enough - EXTREMELY organized. Even though we knew exactly what everything would look like on our wedding day, Sarah would be there as an extension of us to ensure things were running efficiently and smoothly. 

I HIGHLY recommend Our Jonrah Events to everyone. Sarah went above and beyond in helping us stay on top of a very long day – when she heard my laptop was close to dying before playing our quick-turn around wedding video at the reception, she raced home to grab the charger for us.
