About Susan & SMP Events
SMP Events specializes in expert wedding management and intimate custom dinner and cocktail parties.
"Susan, without you this complicated, two locations, multi leveled, highly staffed, food laden, wedding and reception could not have been as fabulous as it was.
All great events are personal, inviting, specific and smooth. Personal to you, inviting to your guests, specific to your sensibilities, and seamlessly smooth.
This is where I get excited!
Say your wish is declaring your vows under a January sky, or hosting a five-course vegan feast in your chic digs, or even transforming your garden into Tuscany for the summer solstice... and I'll say, "Let's get started!"
As a boutique business owner, I am able to really focus on you. I am your partner and collaborator bringing years of experience to your ideas and plans.
The first step is getting to know you.
So I listen when you come to me with your celebration ideas, as we create the elements of your party, and most importantly I listen on the day of your celebration.
There is no limit on communication or exchange of ideas... I am always right by your side.
A party that has flow and calm leaves space for excitement and surprise!
I started my special events career working for upscale caterers and corporate event organizations in and around NYC.
Before long, I was overseeing elite dinner and cocktail soirees, captaining high-end weddings, and ultimately holding the high-pressure role of Maitre D' for 1000 seat benefit Galas.
Those experiences, and my sincere love of hospitality, provided me with the solid foundation to move forward with the 2004 launch of SMP Events.
My flair for logistics and organization keep both large and intimate parties running smoothly, but my calm focus and innate ability to put people at ease are the qualities I am most proud to bring to my work.
My greatest asset, though, is the people I work alongside.
I have the profound pleasure of working with the most amazing bespoke caterers, florists, and event professionals the NYC area.
Together, the SMP Events team brings respect, innovation and professionalism to your special occasion...
and we wrap it all up by loving what we do!
SMP Events is based in the metro NYC area. I have worked with so many lovely clients in New York City, New Jersey, the Hudson Valley, Westchester, The Hamptons and beyond!
I will happily travel to wherever you want to celebrate.
