Susan is exactly what you need in a wedding planner!! The thought of planning a wedding was extremely overwhelming to me. Just thinking about it stressed me out. When my husband and I decided to do a destination wedding in Costa Rica, I knew immediately that I would need to find a wedding planner. Fortunately, my search was over when I found Susan. Her presentation, website and proposal for her services were very clear and well communicated. When I spoke with her on the phone, I immediately connected with her – which is very important for this type of service. She has a genuine sense of excitement, a calm demeanor and passion for what she does. These qualities blended together perfectly to create the best day of my life in Manual Antonio, Costa Rica. I hired Susan for both wedding planning and rehearsal dinner coordination services. She was very organized, kept things moving so that we wouldn’t be in a panic later and most importantly, she listened to what I wanted for my special day. I was always able to count on her for suggestions and input, when needed. Even when I didn’t want to make another decision on anything or didn’t think that some of the little details were that important Susan helped me through it! All the little details did matter and that is what separates a great wedding planner from all the rest – they pay attention to those special details that they know will make a difference! Susan was extremely professional throughout the whole process and truly made our wedding day completely unforgettable. I can’t tell you the number of compliments we received on everything from our guests. She made herself available and I knew I could call or e-mail her anytime. She also put us in touch with some great vendors and was very resourceful. For such a special day that is often one of the bigger expenses in a couple’s life, Susan was an amazing investment – worth her weight in gold! – and we made a friend along the way!Sent on 06/05/2018

Susan makes every wedding magical!
I never thought that I would have hired a wedding planner—that is until I met Susan. I thought it would be easy to plan my wedding by myself (boy was I wrong) since I had a general idea of what I wanted it to look like but I wasn’t sure how I was going to accomplish it all. Before Susan and I started working together, I was stressed trying to find my vendors, book a venue, and how I would pull it all off.Sent on 07/05/2019
I hired Susan for full planning and design. She listened to everything I wanted and didn’t want. She took the ideas that before were just in my head and made them real life. She was the main point of contact for all the vendors which she recommended to me and we chose together. I honestly was never stressed about the wedding with her planning it! It was so nice to enjoy the rehearsal dinner without worrying if I had everything ready for the next day. It was even nicer when I got to sleep in and drink champagne with my bridesmaids while Susan worked her magic and put everything together.
The day of the wedding, Susan took care of EVERYTHING! If something went wrong she had it fixed before I even knew and made sure I was having a good time. She provided a sense of relief and direction I didn’t even know I needed until after I hired her. On top of everything, she is the kindest soul and has the best personal style! I will forever be thankful for Susan that she created my dream wedding.

My Dream Wedding Went Off Without a Hitch!
Susan worked tirelessly with me for months to create my dream wedding and it turned out absolutely perfect! From our initial FaceTime through every meeting leading up to the big day Susan was genuinely sweet and kind. She brought me a sense of calm and maintained poise and professionalism through all the troubleshooting that came along the way. She even got tough with vendors when it was necessary so I wouldn’t have to. Her talent for design and overall sense of style shined through the entire process and the end result was the most personalized and stunningly beautiful wedding I could have imagined. Hire Susan if you have absolutely no sense of design and can’t make decisions and trust her process. Also hire her if you know exactly what you want and she will execute every detail large and small. In either case you can’t lose with Susan! The weekend and day of our wedding Susan blew me away with her efforts. There was a package with our seating chart and table settings that did not arrive so Susan tracked down the package and picked it up! I forgot to buy 2 picture frames meant for our signature drink signs so Susan bought new ones and spray painted them gold to match our decor. Our guestbook was a watercolor portrait of our dogs (with the missing package mentioned before) but it was too wrinkled when she got it so she had the image printed out instead and it looked much better. Things that could have been major disappointments she solved immediately! To name a few things from the wedding day, she made sure our timeline ran smoothly, she took amazing pictures of us throughout so we would have something to look at while we wait for professional shots, she touched up my makeup after dancing, while taking photos I heard the DJ play a slower song but I wanted the party to amp up so Susan had him change it right away, she setup a marshmallow display for our fire pit that was lovely, and packed up absolutely everything (including the cake) and delivered it to me at our hotel the next day! Thanks to Susan my wedding was gorgeous and perfect because Susan worked to make sure any little hiccup was solved to the point where I didn’t even notice. I had a stress free, happy day thanks to her! You’re the best Susan!Sent on 08/18/2019
