ABOUT ME

I am a mother of two grown daughters and have had a lifelong dream of being an Event Planner.  I have been involved in various non-profit organizations within my community and have always enjoyed being the "planner" for events within these organizations.  In 2017, I started to put into motion that lifelong dream and started courses through Ashworth College.  I worked for one year as an Event Planner for a local Brewery and loved it!  I decided it was time to branch out on my own.  I really enjoy working with people to make their special events 

A Step Above what they can imagine.

It was a blessing to have Sue as our wedding coordinator.  Before the wedding, she went over every detail of our day, no  matter how small and asked us all the right questions to help us create a seamless timeline.  On the day of the wedding, Sue was always there when we needed her, going above and beyond any request that we had.  Not only did she make sure that every vendor showed up on time with everything we needed, but she took care of every small detail, from making sure all the decor was in the right place to sewing a button back on a groomsman's suit that fell off.  Sue knew the timeline of the day better than we did and kept everything running smoothly and on time throughout the entire day and night.  There wasn't a single moment during our day that either of us felt worried or stressed out thanks to Sue.

We are so grateful that Sue was a part of our big day and are certain that it wouldn't have gone as smoothly without her.  She helped make our wedding day one to remember and we would absolutely recommend her time and time again to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.

Susan was the consummate professional during the planning of our wedding.  She offered practical, yet elegant ideas to make our special day perfect.  We met with Susan several times and kept in touch in between so she could make sure that every detail was in place. On our wedding day, Susan was there from the beginning of the day, until the end of the day and made sure our guests were comfortable and that the event went smoothly.  Susan even made a thoughtful gift for us that was displayed and added her personal touch as well as some beauty to our decor.  If you want someone with experience, the ability to remain professional, and who can provide exactly what you want on your special day - Susan is that someone!

Baby Presents

In celebration of our grandson's baptism, Susan [planned a party for our family & close friends at a local restaurant.  The meal was a buffet that was well organized.  The tables were set attractively with high chairs provided for the other young grandchildren.  Susan thought to include a gift table & a cake table since we provided the cake.  I found Susan to be friendly & focused on planning an event that met our needs.

Table Setting for Wedding

"When the Hamburg Rotary Club was looking for a place to hold our annual President's Night, we chose the recently-opened 1787 Brewing Company .  We were immediately put in touch with Susan Bear, their event planner.  Susan was very detail-oriented and just a phone call away for questions and updates."

"It could not have run smoother.  We had a wonderful time without any flaws.  It was a pleasure to work with this young professional.  Thank you, Sue."

"Susan planned my son's 30th birthday party last year.  She went above & beyond to make sure everything was perfect!  We had some guests with dietary restrictions & she planned a menu to fit everyone's tastes.  During the event, Susan was available and attentive to all our guests.  It was a surprise party and Susan made sure my son was surprised and every detail was taken care of.  I couldn't have asked for an event to run more smoothly!"
