What inspired you to launch your own business?

After planning social and corporate events for many years, I knew I found my niche after my son’s wedding. I love all of the details that come with planning a wedding, from the big decisions, like the dress or the venue, to the small ones, like escort cards or table numbers! I have to say, the icing on the cake is definitely getting to share one of the best days of my client’s life with them. By the end of our time working together, watching my clients walk down the aisle is the most heartwarming feeling.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

Very few people find themselves hosting large parties regularly. So, really, a wedding is often the biggest party most people will ever throw. All of the excitement and passion my clients feel is contagious, so I can’t help but put my all into every wedding, staying on trend with all of the newest styles and themes in the industry to suit all of my clients’ personalities. Plus, it helps that this is one industry where being a perfectionist is necessary!


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"If you are here to decide on an event coordinator - CHOOSE COUTURE EVENTS. Suzanne is an angel on Earth, I really don't know how else to describe her. Not only is she organized, timely, efficient, detail-oriented, a phenomenal listener, but she is a total BOSS. I am a bride that lives in Michigan, with Suzanne based in Chicago, planning a wedding in California. The time zones alone are confusing! Suzanne is truly the only reason my wedding was made possible and she made it actually fun to plan! I literally wondered if I was the only wedding she was planning at a couple points, I thought there is no way she is doing this much work for everyone... Well, I was wrong and she is in fact a fairy godmother to all! It was such a gorgeous perfect evening, really it was a dream wedding. I am forever grateful to Suzanne, I will miss our emails and calls. She is such a joy to be around and she is the lady for the job. Suzanne, I love you!" - Melanie K.
