As Sara’s cousin, Liza was literally born to be in this business! She’s always had a passion for event planning. Liza brings a background of photography, catering, film editing and production management to the team. She started with Scarlet Plan & Design from the get-go back in 2013 when we just started our mission in Charleston, SC. And now that she's moved "back home" Scarlet now has a Philadelphia location as well!
some of Liza's favorite events
During the 700 mile drive back and forth between Charleston and New Jersey made her realize that she would love a world where teleportation exists, but trains and planes will do the job for now. In another life she would be a bird, so she could soar through the sky and get around with the ease of air travel, not to mention all the places she’ll see! Destination weddings are her go to, she’s always had a passion for traveling the world.
A little bit about her: She jams out to “Let’s Get it Started” by the Black Eyed Peas on the way to every single event. Her friends say that she can get every drop out of a wine bottle, as well as open the bottle with anything handy, like a shoe. Her love languages are Champagne (I mean she is related to Sara, so obvi) and a nice home cooked meal (that she doesn’t have to cook herself). She wouldn’t be able to live without lipstick and coffee on a wedding day, keeps her awake and motivated to make your day perfect! In her off time you will find her in her natural habitat of the woods, either snowboarding in Vermont or hiking with her dog, Sakari and her boyfriend, Chuck.
When they aren't enjoying the fresh air in the mountains, they are video game nerds and love a not so quiet night in. (Yelling at the TV & game servers for not loading or there is a terrible glitch)! Chuck is also a die hard Minnesota Vikings Fan, so you might catch them in Minnesota this upcoming football season for a game or two.
Okay, Okay.. Time for the fun to start!
What’s your favorite happy hour drink?
I'm more of a clear liquor drinker, but if happy hour doesn't include Tito's vodka, that's totally fine because I'd rather do a gin margarita anyway. I'm not a fan of tequila unless it's in shot form with a lime on the rim. Gin is the perfect replacement for a marg. Plus a $4 margarita!!? UMMM YES, COUNT ME IN.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
A lot, but also not enough.. I have more heels than I do everyday shoes!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Stretching across the whole entire bed when my love leaves for work at 6 in the morning.
What are you binge watching on Netflix, right now?
Travelers. I love the curiosity of the future and technology, this show combines those two by bringing people from the future into the 21st century.
If your life was a movie, which actress would play your role?
Scarlett Johansson, mainly because she is absolutely stunning and has played a giant range of different characters. She’d be the perfect fit!
What is your spirit animal, why?
I'm not going to lie, I definitely took a spirit animal quiz to get my result.. This is what it said, “The butterfly is one of the most emblematic totem animals symbolizing personal transformation...the ability to get through changes with lightness”.
Yeahhhh that is a big fat nope. I’m a Honey Badger. Urban Dictionary describes them as the Chuck Norris of the animal Kingdom.. They can also live off of cobra for two weeks. If you don’t believe me google the Honey Badger video on YouTube narrated by Randall.
If Scarlet had a theme song what would it be?
Other than our usual "Shout" by Otis Day and the Knights, I would say “Can’t Hold Us Down” by Christina Aguilera. It might be because I have a giant lady crush on her.. But mainly because she is a badass female that I have always looked up too and I have the best lady boss that ever was.
What’s the best gift you ever received?
Honestly, I know it is going to sound generic and sappy but, life. I love my family more than anything and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way!
What are three things left on your bucket list?
Backpacking in Europe, Skydiving, and visiting all 50 states. Right now I’m at 16 states. (I have a long ways to go).
Android or Apple?
Apple, everything I have is Apple products: macbook, iphone, watch, and tv. Everything syncs together, it is amazing. I haven’t had an android in 3 years.
Me while writing this and jamming out to Christina.
Xoxo, Liza Sakowski
