If you aren't married, you'd want to be after being around Susan, the owner and wedding consultant for Circle of Events. This young and bright entrepreneur glows with passion and works like there's no tomorrow. I had the opportunity to witness how this project blossomed from a casual conversation to actually booking the shoot, casting and finally styling the campaign. It seems like a blur now but the experience in itself was nothing less then perfection.
I've known Susan for awhile but to experience the wedding consultant, was a different story. Susan exudes professionalism, compassion, emotion, sensitivity, and true love for what she does. Even with a hundred things on her plate, her first priority was always on personnel. She was genuine in making sure we were happy, fed, and as eager to be part of this project as she was. She never once doubted the project or complained that it was too much work. She listened, learned, gave inputs and ultimately made very important decisions. She worked hard using the very best of her resources to ensure this project would be the best it could be. Our crew consisted of individuals from Montana, LA to the Central Valley. This is the work of one hard working lady that we all loved so much.
The casting and shoot went great. Like all projects, there were obstacles in the way but there's nothing this lovely lady couldn't handle. Not only was she the client but she was also the Creative Director who knew exactly what she wanted. I watched as she did what she does best by running around town to meet with her clients one by one all the while still working on other projects consecutively.
Susan is a Destination Consultant so if you need someone who truly is invested in you with that extra touch of care, then Circle of Events is your final destination. It's a one stop shop and this leading lady will become family because that's her number one motto... Treating you like family and taking care of your every need in the only way she knows how... with professionalism, commitment and her whole heart... with a cherry on top!
Call Susan for a consultation for your wedding or event. Let her turn your wedding fantasies into a dream come true! If anything, you just have to meet her! Your life will be so much better because of it!
