One of our favorite ways to spend a Saturday? A meet and greet with the newest members of our SMP family, aka, those fab vendors that know everything there is to know about bringing the pretty. So today we’re talking shop with Susan Dunne, a planner extraordinaire that designs and coordinates some of the prettiest affairs you will ever lay your eyes upon. See for yourself (and fall in love) below.
From Weddings by Susan Dunne… After working in the fashion retail industry for several years, my exceptional work ethic and perfectionist nature led me down a path of visual display coordination for a well-known Fortune 500 company. This further ignited my innate passion for design and I began leveraging my professional experience to assist couples in planning one of the most memorable days of their lives. Being part of a couple’s most important day with their friends and loves ones is an unparalleled privilege to me.
I have always had a keen eye for fashion, style and a discriminating taste for food. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to be part of the planning process of such a joyous occasion. As a wedding planner, certified by the Associations of Bridal Consultants, my goal is to surpass all expectations while creating an extraordinary event which overflows with elegance, refinement, and sophistication.
We offer full service wedding planning, as well as Day of Coordination.
We all have friends and family that have been affected one way or another by debilitating conditions, illnesses, diseases or catastrophic events. Whether by contributing spare change, volunteering at an event, or just simply spreading the word, every little bit can help raise awareness for a multitude of causes. As a show of our commitment to giving back, 5% of all proceeds will be distributed evenly amongst Autism Speaks, Joslin Diabetes Center and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Any couple who books with Weddings by Susan Dunne by 10.1.2016 and mentions promo code “Style Me Pretty” will receive 20% off their wedding services!

This, loves, is exactly how we like to spend our weekends: with an entire portfolio of pretty courtesy of the seriously talented Sergey Green. Think one breathtaking image after another filled with the sweetest moments you will ever lay your eyes upon and you are sooo on the right track. It’s SoCal beauty meets a photog that knows a thing or two about capturing every amazing moment… and we can’t get enough.
From Sergey Green… There is nothing that can keep me away from shooting photos. It’s in my nature. I have been a wedding photographer for over eight years now and have worked on over 350 weddings. It’s not easy to keep the passion going for many people, but with every year I love doing what I do more and more.
Every single event or shoot I do carries the unique style and unique people involved in it. That’s why I like photographing in a photojournalistic style and capturing true people and true emotions in the most beautiful way possible. When you hire someone to capture the best day of your life, it really has to be that feeling: “He’s the perfect photographer for our wedding!”
Welcome to the family, Sergey! We are so happy to have you! xo
