Experience is the one deciding factor our clients look for when selecting an event/wedding planner for their special day. Susan and her team of Grade A planners all come from a catering background which speaks volumes to their keen visual sense and problem solving abilities which are crucial qualities to have in logistical event planning. In essence, catering is the heart and soul of event planning. Because Susan got her start in the world of event planning through her catering company “The Open Kitchen”, her knowledge of impeccable cuisine surpasses that of any of her fellow industry peers and colleagues. We believe our field experience as caterers has helped us become better event planners since we’re right there in the trenches experiencing firsthand what CAN go wrong. We’ve seen it all – power outages from unreliable power supplies; executing last minute timing changes with regard to dinner plating service; inaccurate china or glass rentals, wrong linen sizes, the list goes on and on. In each and every situation we troubleshoot anything that comes in the way of planning your event so swiftly and effortlessly that YOU can rest assured and won’t feel bothered by the hiccups. We’re able to easily come up with a feasible solution to any curve ball thrown our way and know how to react and prepare for the unexpected. So please, step aside and let us handle the details.

Susan is wonderful to work with. I am the Mother of the Bride and hired her for a wedding hosted at my home. She is so flexible and experienced that she can work well with any one. She can take your vision and make it a better reality than you could imagine. I am very glad that she helped make this experience a truly wonderful one.

Anne and I are both back in Boston for the first time since the wedding, so we wanted to sit down together immediately and tell you what a fabulous job you did for all of us.
We now fully recognize how unrealistic our initial expectations were for what would be required to produce the kind of destination wedding that we wanted. But you helped us through the process, you listened to what we wanted, and you corralled an enormous group of vendors from all corners of New England to work together seamlessly. Who would have thought that a "barn" wedding would be so much more complicated than one in a more typical venue? Every detail, every piece of equipment, every service, every element of decor had to be planned and procured as if it had never been done before, and yet you found people to take care of everything. From the rehearsal dinner, to the Saturday activities, to the wedding ceremony (the "Chapel in the Woods" looked absolutely spectacular!), to the cocktail tent & hors oeuvres, to the reception (with the gorgeous table decorations, delicious food, and totally rockin' band), not to speak of the wildly dramatic fireworks - the entire weekend was completely magical. We could not possibly be more thrilled or more appreciative of your help in making it all possible. We have received dozens of cards and emails from family and friends saying how much fun it was, how much they felt a part of our family, and how clearly this wedding reflected Kendra and Jenny's love for each other and for their guests. Their marriage is off to a fabulous start, with their first hours overflowing with joy.
Thank you, we will forever be grateful.

We hired Susan to advise along the way with the wedding planning with special attention to the month before and the weekend of. She did an excellent job of connecting with all of our many vendors (it was a home wedding in Maine with lots of moving parts!), suggesting ways to make the day be just what we hoped it would be, and filling in details that might have been over looked. She ran the show on the day of and came to our rescue when the caterer fell down on the job. She and her assistant literally saved the day! Neither the bride and groom or any of our guests knew of any issues with the food and service because Susan was able to jump in to get everything back on track. I have used Susan for catering many times over the years and have highly recommended her to many people, but she out-did herself on this event. Highly recommend!
