Love Notes From More of Our Couples

Sue, thank you for your continued guidance on our wedding.  You have proven to us every step of the process that we chose the best wedding planner!

Janece – Dallas Bride (May 2018)


Sue Kelson is the most dedicated person I’ve ever met!  She worked non stop to make sure everything I had envisioned for my wedding was perfect.  She made every moment of the wedding planning process fun and stress free.  My wedding was absolutely magical and it was all thanks to Sue and her amazing team.  Sue is just a joy to work with and you won’t regret selecting her as your Dallas wedding planner!

Kelly – Dallas Bride (January 2018)


Sue, when we first started our acquaintance, Paul liked you for your experience in the business, Kelly liked your aesthetic, and I liked you (the Iowa connection and all!).  It turns out we were all right.  Your experience introduced us to the best Dallas vendors, the reception space was gorgeous and you have become a friend.  That is such a special talent.  We will definitely have some parties in our future for you to plan!

Karen – Dallas Mother of the Bride (January 2018)


Love love love Sue Kelson Events!!! I cannot say enough amazing things about Sue Kelson!! She is the most amazing wedding coordinator. I had so much fun planning with her. Sue suggested vendors that she knew my fiancé and I would like and would fit the style of wedding we were envisioning. Sue put up with my mom and I contacting her with lots of questions and handled each question by taking whatever was worrying us off our hands and she handled it. The whole weekend of my wedding was perfect! There was not one thing that went wrong. The whole weekend was fabulous! My wedding was the wedding of my dreams because of Sue Kelson Events!!

Amanda – Dallas Bride (November 2017)


I do not have words to thank you enough for all you have done for us.  Amanda, Charlie and I felt so comfortable with all the planning.  Your guidance has been perfect.  Thank you for everything.

Melissa – Mother of the Bride (November 2017)


We picked the Tulip Package with Sue. The package included creating a timeline and day of coordination. We enjoyed how detailed oriented Sue was and her wealth of experience. She took time to understand our vision and what was important to us for our wedding. She was very professional and quick to respond to emails. The day of our wedding the timeline was executed perfectly and Sue and her assistant handled everything for us. Thank you Sue!

Michelle – Dallas Bride (October 2017)


We hired Sue as our day-of planner and she did a fantastic job helping us coordinate on our big day. Prior to, she gave us a very helpful checklist and worksheet that helped us keep track of all the small details as we did our own planning. And then when the day came, Sue and her assistant Brittney were very well organized and were helpful all night. Sue even helped bustle my wife’s dress after the ceremony, and when one of the bustles popped off, Sue popped open her emergency kit and sewed it back on! I’m not sure what we would have done if she was not so prepared and skilled. Sue and Brittney had ear pieces that allowed them to speak with each-other and coordinate from different rooms. They were both very helpful and sweet, and we’d gladly recommend Sue Kelson Events.

Ana & Jeffrey – Dallas Bride & Groom (October 2017)


Hiring Sue to be our Day of wedding planner was the BEST wedding investment we made!! I feel like we absolutely couldn’t have done it without her. Me and my husband together had a wedding party of 22 and everything went literally perfect. She went far beyond our expectations, anytime I needed advice she was always there to help me make the best decisions. I would recommend her to anyone. You will be so happy you choose her!!

Brittany – Dallas Bride (October 2017)


We had the pleasure of working with Sue Kelson Events to plan our September 2016 wedding. The vision for your wedding was a little “out of the box,” and might have been a little challenging for the average planner, however, Sue was outstanding in every respect. Sue delightfully worked with, not just one, but two brides, who were marrying after a 16 year engagement! She guided us through the entire process, always bringing her upbeat and positive energy, taking extra time to meet with us and help us think through and plan every detail of our big day. Looking back, we would not have changed one thing. We appreciate having had the opportunity to work with Sue and her team, and thank them for making our wedding day the most memorable for years to come.

Sue & Dee – Dallas Brides (September 2016)


Thank you so much for all your help!  It has been a pleasure!  XOXO

Darcy – Dallas Bride (September 2016)


There are no words to express my appreciation and thanks for making the most important day for us so wonderful.  You have been such a joy to work with.  I will never forgot all that you have done!

Sharon & Keshia – Mother of the Bride & Bride, Plano (May 2016)


I wanted to thank you for being such an important part of making Emily and Grant’s wedding run so smoothly!  You and your team were awesome and I can’t imagine pulling off the day/evening without you.  Thanks again, and I’ll of course recommend you to anyone who is in need of an event planner.

Leslie – Mother of the Bride, Dallas (April 2016)


We could not have planned this wedding without you and are truly thankful for your service and attention to detail.

Phyllis – Mother of the Groom, Plano (April 2016)


I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you and your assistant did to make Brittney’s wedding day so perfect.  From the rehearsal to the end of the reception everything seemed to run as smooth as silk and absolutely seamless.  Your organizational skills are definitely hands down to anyone I have ever met before.  I don’t know what I would have done without you.

Joy – Mother of the Bride, Houston (January 2016)


Thank you for everything last night!  We had so much fun!  The room and flowers were so beautiful.  I loved how everything turned out.  And thank you for the goodie basket with our wedding cake – it was delicious!  Thanks again for an amazing evening – everyone had so much fun!

Petra & Cameron – Bride & Groom, Plano (August 2015)


Thank you again for helping us plan our wedding.  You are an amazing wedding planner.  You helped to make our day very special, and our wedding dreams come true!

Katy & Brian – Dallas Bride & Groom (July 2015)


Jason and I knew our wedding would be beautiful, but we didn’t know it would be THAT beautiful!  Thank you for everything!

Andrea & Jason – Bride & Groom, Anna, Texas (April 2015)


Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job planning our wedding!  You made everything worry free and our day turned out perfect!  We both feel that we’ve made a special friend in you!

Ariel & Michael – Bride & Groom, Dallas(April 2015)


Best team of wedding planners in the whole universe!!!  I couldn’t be happier!  Every detail was awesome, every problem was taken care of, everything because of you.   I really enjoyed working, and sharing time with you!  You are one of the most genuine and caring people in the world.  God truly gave you a gift and you are using it to bring happiness to people like us.   Our night was PERFECT and priceless.  Thank you, thank you!

Jennifer & Alberto – Bride & Groom (December 2014)


Thank you again so much for all that you did for our special day.  You really were able to make it perfect for us, and we know what a big job that was!  Your expertise and attention to detail helped to make our wedding day enjoyable and wonderful!  “Thank You” does not capture our true feelings of gratitude for all that you did for us!

Chrissy & Billy – Bride & Groom (October 2014)


Sue and Beverly were wonderful to work with!  They were extremely helpful with budgets at the venue, provided excellent vendor recommendations and always had multiple solutions to a problem.  We loved having both Sue and Beverly on our side, and their guidance was much appreciated.  The weekend of the wedding they were magical at making sure all the family felt welcomed plus keeping us on schedule at the rehearsal and the wedding.

Morgan & Simon – Bride and Groom (November 2014)


My day of coordinator canceled on me.  So I needed to find someone just a few days before the wedding to help.  Sue stepped in and asked all the right questions and pulled everything together perfectly in just two days!

Iana & Brad – Bride and Groom (November 2014)


No need to look any further to find the most competent, honest and efficient Event Coordinator. Sue Kelson gave our daughter and her husband as perfect a wedding as we had envisioned for them. She is a true professional and there are not enough complimentary adjectives to describe her.  When our previous coordinator bailed out on us at the very last minute, Sue pulled off the impossible when she stepped in within 3 days of their wedding and they had the wedding of their dreams. I don’t think there was a moment that day when our daughter and her husband did not have smiles on their faces. We were reassured within 15 minutes of speaking to Sue that our daughter and her husband would have a phenomenal day to remember and it was. She handled every detail before, during and after with such care and efficiency. “Perfect” was heard repeatedly by most of our friends and family. As an extremely satisfied Mother and Father of the Bride, we wholeheartedly recommend Sue.

Maria & Joseph – Mother and Father of the Bride (October 2014)


Where do I even begin on Sue Kelson?  She demonstrates every attribute of what a professional event planner should be. Throughout the years, Sue has helped us plan a variety of events including a wedding, Christmas parties, major fundraisers and everything in between. Because of her expertise and supreme professionalism, from the moment when you first approach her to plan an event, until the last linen is removed, your experience is beyond all expectations. Her ability to put clients at ease and anticipate their needs and concerns puts her in a league of her own. In the end, we felt that we had the event planner of our dreams, but we also felt as though we had gained a friend! Her dedication and passion to the job is what will keep us coming back time and time again. Sue is more than a wedding planner – she is a life concierge!

Aide to United States Congressman (September 2014)


I can only say superlatives to the way Ms. Kelson and her assistant Beverly handled the rehearsal and the wedding reception. They handled everything, so I the father of the Bride, really only had to walk my daughter down the aisle, leaving me to mingle with the guests. Anticipated everything without missing a beat!

Howard – Father of the Bride (July 2014)


Thank you so much for absolutely everything.  We could not have done it without all of your help and expertise!  The wedding was everything I dreamed of…and more.  Thank you for helping put together and carry out such a beautiful wedding.  I will definitely keep in touch and share my wonderful experience with Sue Kelson Events.  Thank you again for all of your efforts in putting together such an important event in my life.  I really appreciate it!

Kelsey (Weisheit) Sinclair – Bride (June 2014)


Sue and Beverly were a gift to Rob and I from the moment we met them.  Both of us are busy professionals, we knew we wanted a tasteful and elegant wedding (not the first for either of us), but having the time to plan all the details and bring the right vendors to the table was overwhelming.   YIKES!   Sue and Beverly did “all the heavy lifting!”   They spent time getting to know us, discovered some of our favorite things – rain and umbrellas, deep rich royal colors, and devoted their time and talent to making the entire weekend perfect. There were family and friends from age 10 to 90, and they all had a marvelous time. They planned the “get pretty party” for the all the girls in the wedding, the wonderful meals, gathered up a terrific band and photographer (who was so inconspicuous you didn’t even know he was there), arranged the rehearsal dinner, and finally the end-of-the-weekend send off luncheon when we said good-bye to out of town guests.  Through out it all they were professional, patient, pleasant and hilarious when it was time to be.  So getting together with them for planning meetings was never a chore, it was always fun!  Couples tell stories and laugh about that little guffaw that happened on their wedding day – we didn’t have one, we had Sue and Beverly – no way that was going to happen!

L & R – Bride/Groom  (May 2014)


You are awesome!  The best!  Great party…with deep appreciation for a job well done!

Geraldine – Political Fund-raiser  (February 2014)


I would highly recommend Sue Kelson Events for your wedding with no reservations. Very organized and attentive to every detail.  She thought of things that did not even cross our minds for the wedding arrangements.  Very experienced and you just feel an amazing confidence working with Sue, and the peace of mind that you need especially as you get closer to the big day! She is a wonderful, professional wedding planner with a real passion for what she does!  We were extremely happy with her!

Maryam – Bride (October 2013)


Throughout the years we have hosted many events with the advice, guidance and professional management of Sue.  One of our fondest memories was when Sue planned a wonderful wedding reception for our daughter that absolutely “took our breath away” with every fabulous detail.  So many of our guests that attended still mention it often (ten years later), as one of the most beautiful and fun wedding receptions they have ever attended!

State Representative for Texas – (July 2013)


I have known and had the pleasure of working with Sue Kelson for more than 15 years.  She has helped me plan numerous events including small celebrations for my family and golf tournaments for our medical residents.  Sue has been extremely helpful in planning our annual fund raising golf tournament for the American Red Cross since it’s inception 15 years ago.  It always draws rave reviews from the participants and Sue’s contribution is one of the main reasons.

Medical Doctor & Professor, UT Southwestern Medical Center – (July 2013)


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 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!

Kim Foster – Bride (May 2013)


Thank you so much!  You made the reception so perfect and I was able to finally relax and enjoy the night.  I really appreciate all your help from the first time I contacted you – to all the way through.  The wine was a fantastic topper to a great evening!  Thanks again and best wishes for you and all the future holds!

Sue Hughes – Mother of the Bride (April 2012)


Sue did a wonderful job planning & executing our wedding reception. Prior to our official entrance, she carted my wife and I off to her office where 2 complete place settings awaited us (along with Advil & our favorite beverages). This was a nice touch because we were able to relax & eat before being bombarded by guests! Sue also expertly dispatched pesky children that were running around which ensured our photos we nice & memorable. Details like these (and many more) that most people, my wife and I included, never even thought about is what makes Sue the perfect choice to handle your wedding.

Kelly Burnett – Groom (November 2011)


First class all the way! From the selection of the venue and the food to her recommendation for the flowers…awesome! She was very organized and easy to work with…no stone unturned. The best thing for me as the mother of the bride was that I could relax and really enjoy my daughters wedding. I would recommend Sue Kelson Events for any large or small gathering! Simply the best!

Sue Scullion – Mother of the Bride (August 2009)


I had my wedding at a local country club in 2009. Sue Kelson was the wedding planner and she was fantastic! Every detail was handled with the utmost professionalism and attention. Everything was perfect! We met a few times before the big event to line out what I wanted. She was on hand for the entire event, all the way to seeing us to our limo at the end of the night. The ceremony was perfect, and the reception was a blast. People are still telling me what a great time they had!!  Thanks Sue!!

Deena – Bride (June 2009)


Sue worked with me for weeks before my 50th Wedding Anniversary for my wife and me.  The execution was perfect – exactly as we had planned.  Sue was always near to oversee or coordinate as necessary.  I’ve sponsored many large events at country clubs that I have belonged to over my years in the military and as a CEO in Corporate America, and none have been this flawless.  I could not be more pleased.
