About

$6,500 Package Price

Susan La Reau Events is a team of two planners, Dahianna and me! Serving couples in San Jose, Costa Rica, we each take a limited number of weddings a year which allow us to offer more quality time and give the best experience to each of our clients.

We have a true passion for creating whimsical and romantic weddings and most importantly helping my clients to have an epic destination wedding.

We have high attention to detail and really work by our client's side as part of their team more than as a vendor you just hired to do the job.We love make planning fun and easy for our couples.

The wedding planning experience with us will keep you away of filling our forms and questionnaires. Our approach is way more personable, we will become friends, will chat via phone, video calls, texts and emails and even in person when possible.

Whether intimate or large, we would love to help you plan your destination wedding!

Pura Vida!

    Most detail oriented wedding planner every!

    The best wedding planner! Susan is not only an amazing talented professional, she’s also such an amazing kind, patient and detail oriented person. She made the whole process of planning my wedding fun and stress free, especially having planned through the pandemic. From every vendor she recommended to every small detail, everything was so amazing. I can’t get over of how perfect was our wedding day was! It was beyond our expectations we had and even better than we had both visualized. Susan, we love you and we are forever grateful! If your looking for a wedding planner/destination planner you need to meet Susan!

    EPIC wedding!

    Susan was a delight to work with! Not only is she amazing but her whole team is too. They did a great job for our wedding in Costa Rica. We planned everything virtually and it turned out so so beautiful. It was a dream. I love the relationships she has with her vendors. She guided us throughout this process with an honest perspective.

    Super star team! Professionalism at its finest.

    Susan La Reau Events's reply:

    Pao and Brandon, where do I start. You are fun and kind and truly a dream couple! Your wedding was so beautiful and I had the best time putting together every detail of the big day while my team ran the day of the celebration. I wish you the best of this new stage of your lives together! Que Dios les bendiga su hogar!

    Wedding Savior

    We started working with Susan back in July of 2018 for our 2020 destination wedding in Costa Rica. She came with great reviews and was a recommended vendor at the Villa we chose for our venue. I interviewed a couple of Costa Rican wedding planners and Susan by far was the most genuine person I spoke with. We were on track with planning , then the pandemic hit. Through our roller coaster of deciding to post pone our wedding and even changing venues, Susan was with us and supported us each step of the way. Once we decided to change venues to Savannah, GA, (a city that was not in her portfolio) she was quick to find local vendors and venues for us in such a short turn around time. We eventually decided to post pone the wedding in Savannah to the following year and still she came through with everything we can ask for and more. Our parents and wedding party was so impressed with her. After the wedding we had “Susan withdrawals” because we worked with her for so long and she felt like a part of our family. She even followed up months after our wedding to check in on us and made sure we received all of our photos and videography. Our friends and family still reminisce about how beautiful and memorable our wedding was. I 110% recommend Susan for all your planning needs! You will not be disappointed!

    Susan La Reau Events's reply:

    Kristine and AJ! I miss you so much!!! Thank you for the beautiful testimony and kind words. It was a crazy and beautiful ride with uncertainty due the pandemic, but I am glad we were able to put together a memorable celebration!
    Cheers to many happy years ahead!
