    Wonderful last minute wedding!!

    My wife and I needed someone to marry us ASAP, we called Sussie who was professional, accommodating to our needs, and extremely flexible.

    She not only guided us through the whole process of filing our marriage intentions but planned and delivered a simple and beautiful ceremony on extremely short notice (3 days).

    It was honestly above and beyond anything we could have expected and were pleasantly surprised and more than satisfied with everything. 1000% recommended to anyone looking for someone to make their special day extra special.

    Thanks again for everything!

    -Jahir and Virginia

    Wedding coordinator

    I want to give a huge shoutout to Sussie and Comfort for making my wedding day the most beautiful , stress free day. From the beginning Sussie took care of us and helped us every step of the way. She made me make sure all the preparations of the wedding were getting done in a timely manner. Comfort did an amazing job with our day of itineraries and they both made sure the day went by as planned. All throughout the night they both made sure my husband and I were having the time of our lives and thanks to them we did just that. I can definitely say the wedding planning was my least favorite but with their help it went by smoothly. I’m very grateful and happy I picked Once upon a time to coordinate my wedding and I highly recommend anyone that is looking for a coordinator that Sussie is the perfect pick.

    Once Upon A Time Wedding Services, Inc.'s reply:

    My dearest Reyna, Comfort and I had such an awesome experience working with you. I especially enjoyed our Zoom meetings and I must say I missed those. You were both such a pleasure and joy to work with from beginning to end. I know I said this to you but I'll say it again; you looked so beautiful and happy on your wedding day. May you have a blessed marriage every day of your lives. And thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. Love you lots, Sussie

    Say Yes to OUAT

    I was a bride that was trying to do it all. I wanted to be married by June 2022. I had reached out to vendors, but then life would happen and I became stuck in the same cycle. So, I reached out to Once Upon A Time Wedding Services and I got connected to Sussie. I almost cried out of relief when we had our initial conversation. When I told her that the wedding was in nine months, she gave me practical timelines and also assured me that with God’s help we were going to get it done.

    Throughout the months leading to our wedding, she provided To-Do lists broken down by months. She gave us strategies on how we can organize ourselves for the wedding. When we were stuck she gave us vendor recommendations which we definitely took. Each meeting always started with her cheerful greeting and conversation and then we got to business. Closer to the wedding, she helped us tie up all our lose ends. A week before the wedding can be extremely stressful for the bride, but Sussie was very considerate and always allowed me to tell her what I needed.

    During the bridal rehearsal, Sussie created an itinerary for the bridal party and made sure everyone knew where to go and what to do. She continued to assure me and worked to make sure all items/decorations for the church and reception hall were dropped off at their locations. The day of the wedding felt dreamy and organized. As a bride, everything happened like a whirlwind, but Sussie kept me grounded, on time, nourished and happy.

    I can continue to say more about how much Sussie and her team helped us. There were times were we had to problem solve (like vendors falling through two months from the wedding) and last minute decoration changes. There were many moments were she displayed leadership and guidance. Sussie and her team worked so hard and professionally to ensure that our vision came true for our wedding. If you want a wedding planner, who truly considers you as a bride, but also as a person going through a stressful time in their life, I highly recommend Sussie Figueroa.

Sussie was the most professional and accommodating wedding planner I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I DJed a wedding recently and was greeted immediately, followed by assurances that she would be there for me if I needed her. Not only did she have the entire wedding completely under control, she also had a lot of fun, doing a little dance here and there. This shows the ease and pleasure in what she does, which is to create and manage events that are aimed to produce positive memorable experiences. If you want to plan your wedding with the least amount of stress and the most amount of positive energy, then these are the people you need to work with.
