Behind the Name

Our Jonrah Events started as a wedding hashtag (#OurJonrah) when the founder Sarah Valencia planned and coordinated her wedding in the summer of 2018. She loves a good pun and when she discovered how her husband’s name (Jon from Jon Jon) and her name (rah from Sarah) blended together seamlessly to form “Jonrah” and sound like the word genre, she felt there was a special ring and feel to it! It felt unique that their names sounded like an actual word that was defined as,

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

Likewise, she believes that every couple and event is unique, just like their own defined genre. As with a classic tale, song, or book, Sarah wants the events she coordinates to be looked back on with a nostalgic joy and defined by the people she worked with.

With her passion for planning and creative engine reignited, she ventured to begin Our Jonrah Events that fall. You can read more about her background at Founder + Planner.
