"No matter your vision and style,
I have the passion and expertise to make it a reality!"
I’ve always been passionate about conceptualizing spaces and changing the look and feel from one event to the next. I have the reputation for being very adaptable as well as someone who leaves a lasting impression when it comes to planning an event. While working in the events and hospitality industry for over the past twenty years, I have built great connections with both colleagues and clients alike, often being called a “social chameleon.” Prior to starting my own Event Planning + Design company, Events By Chrissie Sue in 2018, I was a Director of Catering for Colwen Hotels and spent over seven years managing Weddings and Events for the Renaissance Boston Patriot Place Hotel and the Hilton Garden Inn at Patriot Place. Some of my earlier testimonials noted on this site are from my efforts there. I hold a certification as a Wedding and Event Planner through Marriott International, I am a certified Wedding and Event Planner through US Career Institute and I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Corporate Communications. My areas of expertise include event planning and design on small and large scales, including but not limited to Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Corporate Events. While working for Renaissance Boston Patriot Place Hotel, I was voted Best of Weddings for six years in a row by TheKnot.com; Couples Choice for 2016 and 2018 by WeddingWire.com and in 2017 awarded by Marriott International, the Catering Sales Excellence Team of the Year for America’s East!
Since the onset of Events By Chrissie Sue in 2018, my personal efforts and that of my dedicated team members, have continued to be acknowledged by our peers and clients alike year over year. Events By Chrissie Sue has been recognized nationally as "Best of Weddings" 2021, 2022, and 2023 by TheKnot.com, putting us in the Best of Weddings Hall of Fame! Locally, we have also been voted Best of Weddings 2022 by Discover Rhode Island, and Best of Boston 2021 and 2022, by Boston Magazine! In addition to the accolades mentioned above, Events By Chrissie Sue has been featured in magazine publications for the following companies: Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Bride & Groom Magazine, Rhode Island Monthly, and Boston Magazine! All of which we are humbly grateful.
My ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment whilst maintaining an emphasis on quality over the years, coupled with my reputation for being a great collaborator, allows me to continuously exceed my client’s expectations. I look forward to meeting with you and getting the chance for my team and I to make your event most memorable!
