Meet Suzanne Halaska, founder of couture events. Before debuting her company, Suzanne was always the go to person for planning social, charity, and community events as well as the hostess for all special occasions.

She has the passion, enthusiasm, and creativity for organizing the details to produce a special event that is elegant, fun, and memorable. With these personality traits and four years of experience in the industry, she was recently awarded best of weddings for 2018 from The Knot. Her knowledge of weddings and events ranges from the elite in top hotels and venues to a garden party in its natural landscape.

Suzanne is also accredited by the american bridal association as a certified wedding planner. She is frequently researching new event trends, learning about new venue sites, and attending workshops to ensure that she brings you the best knowledge and suggestions for your big event! Coupled with her evolving knowledge of the industry & the best resources and vendors, she and her team will always give you the highest standard of service and memorable results.
Suzanne is a true chicagoan and currently resides near wrigley field, where she gets ample opportunity to hear the cubs games from her rooftop deck. When she’s not planning events throughout the city, you can find her jogging along the lake front path and spending time with friends and family. Her favorite part of her job is the relationships she builds with her clients, which extend far beyond any event. She truly has the best couture events family.

My dream wedding would not have been possible without Couture Events Chicago! Suzanne is absolutely amazing at planning weddings. Her glowing personality combined with her eye for design and intimate knowledge of the wedding industry sets her apart from other wedding planners. Suzanne is very organized and detail oriented, and she has a quick response time with emails and phone calls. I never realized how much time and effort goes into planning a wedding, but I can honestly say Suzanne took all of the stress out of the planning process and made it enjoyable and fun. She created helpful checklists, budgets and timelines to ensure everything went smooth leading up to the big day. Having Suzanne at my wedding was like having a fairy godmother. Anything I needed or requested- she made it happen. The best decision I made at my wedding was to marry my husband, but the decision to hire Suzanne as my wedding planner was a close second. I highly recommend Couture Events Chicago to all brides who are looking to make the wedding of their dreams a reality. 

-Bride, Lauren
