About Chelsea Suddes, Owner of Pearl Weddings & Events

Chelsea Suddes, owner of Pearl Weddings & Events, began her career in the wedding industry 11 years ago as an intern. Not surprisingly, she fell in love with event planning and design. Now, Chelsea focuses her energy on her own Connecticut wedding planning company, bringing her couple's vision to life.

Serving couples in Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, and Massachusetts, Chelsea does not miss a beat! She has an innate ability to listen carefully and fully understand her client's perspective. Chelsea is a grounded individual who stays on task and has a keen eye for detail.

Chelsea gets inspired by others' dreams and love for life. She is madly in love with her husband. She craves adventure in the great outdoors, and will jump on any chance she gets to travel. Without question, her joy and excitement for her couples are always felt throughout the planning process and beyond.

What's your favorite part of working with your clients on the planning, design, and/or coordination of their wedding?

I love it all! You can’t have a good wedding without a killer plan. The design is the magic that takes our weddings to the next level. It produces a feeling and the experience. I am energized by the production – the joyfulness, focus, and presence needed keeps me coming back for more!

Here's what Chelsea Suddes has to say about The Planner's Playbook…

Before joining, I was trying to fine-tune my behind the scenes process. With the help of The Planner's Playbook and Candice, I am working out all the kinks to make sure it’s a process that is easy for me and my clients.

I have also received some awesome insight into creating a design. As a result, I’ve gained so much more confidence in bringing the design to the client!

There is an endless amount of support and business advice to help you launch your career. And if there is a setback, or you're too busy or overwhelmed (like me!), you can always come back to the community when you feel ready to take on the next thing. They will be there for you!
