“Susanna is a lifesaver. She worked with us leading up to our wedding to make sure every last detail was taken care of. On our wedding day she showed up at 6:00 am with breakfast and was with us until midnight making sure everything went smoothly. Susanna was incredibly professional, organized and calm under pressure. I would highly recommend her to someone looking for a wedding or event planner.”

“Susanna’s tenacity, organizational skills, and generosity led her to become a pivotal member of our team. She attacked each task exuberantly, covered many ideas, and never complained about the hours and tasks. Susanna always found a way to make it work, including securing the special events production office for VIFF’s Closing Gala on a budget of zero dollars. Not only is Susanna an exceptional team member, she has keen leadership skills and will be an asset to any organization she works with.”

Thank you so much for your all-star work that makes us shine!”

 “…VIFF throws the best after parties in the world. The one that we are in totally rocks. We’ve got Bhangra and jazz and you have the most amazing food, so I am thrilled to be here. And it’s a great audience for film, it’s perfect.”

“Susanna is an outstanding event planner. She is very organized, creative; detail oriented and is great at keeping everyone in the loop. I had the pleasure of working with her on two events and both went off without a hitch. I would recommend her to anyone!”
