Where do I begin? Sue was an absolute God-send. We could not have done it without her! Sue's been in the business for so long that she knows everyone, which was great for us. As you know, the choices for everything can be overwhelming. Sue got to know us and our tastes and then... Read More would tailor the selection of vendors to 1-3 for us to meet with. Of course, everyone of the vendors she chose for us to meet with was fabulous; so, that it was a mixed blessing :-). But, she was absolutely spot-on with every vendor she brought us. We would immediately "hit it off" with one of the choices she put in front of us and were very satisfied with all of the choices we made. Another thing to know about Sue is she is in attendance at everything and documenting everything. She was always able to negotiate better rates on everything than we could have done ourselves (THANKS SUE!). She had a lot of great ideas and kept us on schedule, on task, and (most importantly) on budget! She was on top of everything throughout the entire process. And, if that wasn't enough, she prepared the most wonderful gift basket for us to take with us back to hotel so that we had a little "something" just for us to enjoy. I can't say enough wonderful things about Sue. If you doubt the value of a wedding planner, doubt no more. Sue was worth every penny (and then some). For the two of us (both full time jobs), it would have been impossible to pull this off without her help. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Getting married? Who you gonna' call? Call Sue Kelson (that's who!)

We had the pleasure of working with Sue Kelson Events to plan our September 2016 wedding.

My husband and I hired Sue just a couple of weeks out from the wedding. Although my daughter had done most of the work, I wanted to make sure that neither she nor I needed to worry about anything on her wedding day. Sue had done a couple of events for us before with birthday... Read More parties, so I felt very comfortable bringing her in at the last minute. We had a few hiccups with the vendors, but I did not even know of the problems until after the wedding, when Sue called to tell me I would be getting a discount from a couple of vendors. So as I understand, she and her assistant put out a few fires on the wedding day. But I got my wish, as I did not have to worry. It was a lovely day for my daughter and her new husband, and our entire family. Sue allowed us to enjoy the big day!

Sue and her assistant were fantastic. I did the 'day of' package - and Sue went above and beyond my expectations. Nearly a month before the wedding she started pulling together all the lose strings of the wedding and driving for organization. On top of that - she provided great... Read More advice for the inevitable wedding stress and drama. The day of she executed the plans flawlessly. Even with all the planning, small unforeseeable things pop up (like a dress button popping off, the wedding guest book pen not working, an impromptu speech at the reception) and she managed them so quickly I wasn't able to let the chaos sink in and freak out. I was 100% comfortable around both of them - which is very important. She allowed me to have unforgettable wedding memories and enjoy every moment of the night. Fast forward a few months and I find out that my wedding videographer went bankrupt and I still haven't received my footage. Sue immediately responded to my request and went above and beyond her role as my day of coordinator. She is so well connected in the Dallas wedding scene, she was easily able to get me some more answers. Sue followed up with the frantic aftermath (I received the footage - raw, uncut) and exceeded her duties as my day of coordinator. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Every woman has her own unique vision of her wedding day. Over time it becomes a shared vision of both the bride and the groom; one that can become seemingly overwhelming to implement. Enter Wedding Planner, Sue Kelson and her uncanny ability to hone in on what is absolutely... Read More most important to the couple, what can be tweaked, what should be enhanced and still stay within the budget. As our son and his fiancé's wedding planner, Sue spent time very early in the process to understand the bride’s style (her likes/dislikes). Doing so enabled her to engage both venues and vendors who were not only affordable, but truly creative. Sue ensured everyone involved understood the importance of enabling the couple’s vision of their special day to become a reality. Sue brings years of event planning skills and techniques to the table and offered truly valuable advice and counsel to the happy couple and to us as parents; things we would never have thought about had we attempted this on our own. Sue ensured all the vendors were properly coordinated and that the flow of the ceremony and the reception were perfectly timed and executed. An incredible amount of time, energy and effort went on behind the scenes all of which Sue kept totally transparent to our guests. Sue’s knowledge of the wedding industry, her wide span of connections, coupled with her outstanding reputation in the area enabled the bride and groom’s wedding to be a truly memorable occasion. We highly recommend Sue Kelson and thank her immensely for her attention to detail, her experience, her ethical, keen negotiation skills and her advice and guidance. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll be thoroughly delighted!!

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.

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.
