I had the most awesome wedding reception EVER, which I have dubbed, "My Party!" My husband and I met with Sue Kelson several times to go over everything, and I mean everything! Sue covered every last detail (things we didn't even think about). Sue listened to us, really... Read More listened to us, asked lots of questions and made suggestions, many of which we implemented. She kept in constant contact with us which was so appreciated and my stress level was kept at a minimum. I was one of those really organized, obsessed, wanting to be in control brides with a binder that went everywhere with me and never left my sight. I was thrilled when Sue had all my information, contact numbers, etc at her fingertips as well! I KNEW I was in good hands and I was right! It was at the rehearsal dinner I turned over the reigns completely to Sue. I was not the least bit apprehensive in doing so either. I was so confident MY DAY was going to be perfect and Sue would see to it...She did, without fail! Every single detail, large, down to teeny tiny was done! I did not have to do anything except get ME ready! I remained calm the entire day, because in Sue's gentle voice, she would inform me of where and what was happening next. A gentle touch on the shoulder, a whisper in my ear, a slight nod of the head, Sue was there! We had lots of stuff going on at "My Party"...guest greeting, food, photo booth...etc. I did absolutely nothing except have the time of my life! My husband and I DID have the perfect reception...Sue saw to it. The tables were beautiful, food fantastic, lighting perfect, timing for cake etc was done at the best time (and not at my doing as Sue kept everything flowing perfectly!) lots of laughter and the smile never left my face! I have nothing but praise for Sue Kelson Events! Sue was everywhere, tending to everything, but funny thing is, I don't recall seeing her other than when she would tap my shoulder and whisper my ear "it's time for..." I know she was busy behind the scenes keeping the reception going. In fact, our 200 guests are still talking about "My Party." Everyone is saying it was the wedding/reception of the century and the best one they have attended! SUCCESS! If you want your event to be perfect, Sue is your lady! Her experience, calm demeanor, gentle voice and ability to take care of every detail is priceless! I cannot express my gratitude and appreciation towards Sue. She's amazing and I am forever grateful for her. Thank you Sue Kelson!

Out of town Mom/Tried & True Indeed

Read More started with the reviews, then called the var ious planners, then had my daughter and her then fiancé meet with them. We discussed their meetings and chose Sue. So glad!! From the very beginning Sue had a plan. She first got to know my daughter and son-in-law, what they were like and what they wanted their wedding day to be. We discussed budget, of course, and then she went to work. I could not have done this from out of town nor could my daughter have found the vendors & pricing that Sue was able to. She found the perfect reception venue for them in no time at all. She was completely organized & professional, and had great contacts/vendors & ideas. She did her best to keep us in budget and even though we went slightly over (by about her fee) I believe by using her, we saved at least that much and had a much nicer experience,( the day of and the months before planning-MUCH less stressful-in fact, easy!) than had we not used her!! Also, since I could not be there for many of the pre-wedding planning events, I went for dress selection but couldn't make the first fitting :-( but Sue filled in for me--kind of a mom substitute.
