I have hired Suzanne twice, once to cater my 50 birthday party and most recently she was my wedding planner (2015). What is most amazing is how well Suzanne listens. When planning an event, especially a wedding it can be extremely stressful. You have numerous ideas but so often they are difficult to express. Somehow, Suzanne had the ability to take might, what seemed like random thoughts, and clearly summarize what I was saying. From that point she had numerous ideas. For my wedding she created a fairytale theme wedding, from a shoestring budget. It was beautiful. For my 50th birthday, Suzanne catered the affair. Everything was delicious. Suzanne was very calm, even when I was stressed and kept saying "I got that, don't worry about it...now go have fun!" If you are seeking a creative, out of the box stylist/caterer who listens and provides a superior product then Suzanne Sparkman is the person for you.
