As a New Orleans native now living with my husband in Charlotte, NC, I couldn't imagine not celebrating our wedding day anywhere other than in New Orleans. My husband, having lived and worked in New Orleans for nearly 27 years, felt exactly the same way. We keep extremely busy... Read More schedules and knew it was essential to recruit the help of an expert wedding planner who has the experience and know how to negotiate on our behalf. After much searching and vetting, our personal friend and savvy local business owner gave us a glowing recommendation to meet with Susan Zackin and Z Event Co. We're so grateful for such a valuable connection! Susan's experience in the event planning industry is evident and she helped us tremendously from beginning to end. She has the relationships in the industry to make things happen that we would have been unable to pull off on our own. On the day of our wedding, we knew she had everything covered and she was completely indispensable! I can remember feeling a tremendous sense of security that she was right there to tend to every detail and our behind the scenes needs. Totally invaluable! Our joyous 11:00am wedding ceremony at St. Louis Cathedral was followed by an EPIC Second Line parade from the Cathedral straight to Brennan's for the most incredibly GORGEOUS and FABULOUSLY FUN party any of us could have ever imagined. We got married exactly 3 months ago today and our friends/family are still raving about the entire day. There is no way this would have all come together in such a magical and magnificent way without Susan's guidance and help. She put us in touch with some of the most incredible vendors and really knows her stuff. Our only wish would be that she somehow figure out how to extend time so that we could all have enjoyed our spectacular day even longer! Such wonderful memories for beginning a happy life together. Thank you Susan and Jessica for making it all come together for us! Our day was nothing short of perfection! All our Best, Holly & Dale Misiek
