Susie was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. She was creative, energetic, supportive, truly understood my daughter’s ideas and vision, and created the most unbelievable and unforgettable bat mitzvah celebration for her. She thought of every detail and her calm demeanor kept us stress-free and right on track throughout the entire process. It was truly seamless from start to finish, so much so that I never had a thing to worry about. Everyone had a fabulous time and I cannot thank Susie enough. We most definitely “felt the love”. Perri & Bill Stopera (Megan's parents)
Susie is the best! When it came time for my family to plan a party in California I insisted that Susie help with the event. My father, who was hosting the party, was hesitant at first because there were local planners he could have used. However, once he met Susie he knew there was no one better! She is creative, organized, focused, calm, fun and a great listener. Everyone she came into contact with loved her (even all the vendors adored her). Whether you have a vison that needs implementation, or you need that unique idea Susie is the person for the job. She will work with you, allowing you to do as much or as little of the planning as you desire. After spending the weekend in Malibu with Susie my dad said, “he would never host a party without her!”. - Michelle Coppola and David Saperstein
We planned the most incredible night ever!! Everything was perfect. Exactly what Lily wanted, and what we wanted for her. The room was even more beautiful than we could have envisioned. It was really so amazing seeing all of the details and pieces come together. And EVERYONE had a blast! As you could see, the dance floor was packed the entire night...the music was amazing, the giveaways were a hit, the drinks were flowing...and everyone is still talking about what a fun night it was. And the best part...I was able to enjoy EVERY minute of it. I never left the dance floor and I was fully able to be a guest at my own party. I never once had to worry about any of the logistics...because you were there taking care of it all!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for everything!!! - Lauren Anchin (Lily's mom)
This was my second time working with Susie and she is truly fabulous. She will help as much or as little as you need depending on your affair and needs. She is so kind, loving, and fun! Susie is honest and worked with my budget and gave great advice on things I could do to cut cost and where to splurge! I am so thankful to have felt the love, she truly treats all her clients with such a positive attitude and she truly makes you feel special. Both my bar and bat mitzvahs that she helped me with were fabulous and her relationships with vendors/etc are phenomenal. Everyone DJ, florists, caterer, apparel ppl are so happy to work with her bc she is truly amazing hardworking, smart and most especially kind !!!! Sallie Schnier (Jacob's mom)
From the moment we met Susie we knew that we were in great hands. Susie's warm and easygoing demeanor combined with her high level of expertise enabled us to relax and enjoy the planning process for our son's bar mitzvah. Susie took care of all the details from beginning to end and the result was amazing. We truly felt her love and we are so grateful to her for helping to create such a beautiful and memorable weekend for our family! - Stacey & Steven Panzer (Aidan's parents)
From start to finish working with Susie and her team for our son's Bar Mitzvah was a pleasure. She was organized and thorough but most importantly listened to we wanted for Eli. Her vision and creativity combined with her knowledge of the industry made the whole experience fun for all of us. Susie brought the actual day together seamlessly, made it magical and was there from beginning to end to make sure that all we had to do was enjoy every single moment. Samantha & Jeff Lowe (Eli's parents)
Susie takes the worry out of any event big or small! From a birthday dinner for 30 to a charity gala for 350 people, Susie has stage managed magnificent occasions for my family and business with grace, calm and an unfailingly positive attitude. From beginning to end, I definitely “felt the love!” Thank you, Susie! - Shelley Meltzer
We used Susie for my son’s engagement party for over 150 people at my home last July. My son really wanted a low key party where his friends could feel relaxed and have fun. We wanted something a bit more elegant since we were including friends and family who we could not invite to the wedding. Susie managed to perfectly meld both of our wishes with food trucks lining the driveway, lawn games, special cocktails, and gorgeous low key floral decorations in tented areas that had a really fun vibe. The best part about working with Susie was that on the day of the party, all we had to do was enjoy our guests and have fun. She took care of dealing with all the vendors, tips, final payments and ensuring all went smoothly and without a glitch. We can never throw a party again without her assistance - Hillary and Eric Messer (and the future, Matt and Alessa Messer)
Working with Susie is the best! She really takes the time to listen and understand what you are looking for and help you elevate to the next level. Not only did we plan a wedding with her that was flawless, but she helped me create a Fabulous backyard 60th birthday party for my husband was unforgettable, creative and nonstop fun! - Cathy Nish
My good friend suggested I call Susie when it was time to plan my son’s bar mitzvah (ok, she’s a great friend)! But before we got started, Susie came to meet my family and, most importantly, meet Ryan to get a sense of what he liked and disliked. From that meeting we knew we were in good hands. When I look back, one of my biggest takeaways was how easy everything was. Susie and her team kept us on track, the room looked great (exceeded my expectations) and the kids had a blast! For me, there was nothing better than to see how happy my son was throughout the night. As promised, Susie had my family and my guests ‘feeling the love’.
- Lauren Zaretsky (Ryan's mom)
We worked with Susie for our son’s Bar Mitzvah, and could not have been happier to have her by our side through the whole process. She is not only super organized and incredibly familiar with the needs and timelines of throwing an event, but she also took the time to get to know us, to get a sense of the type of event we wanted to throw, and was able to bring our ideas to life. Susie was able to add value by pointing us towards options that made a big impact where we wanted, as well as ways to save in areas we were less concerned with. The event was a huge success from start to finish – enjoyed by all of our friends and family, and our son and his friends most of all! We would wholeheartedly recommend using Susie to anyone planning an event and looking to Feel the Love! -Kerri & Michael Winderman (Tyler's parents)
The fact that we chose to hold Morgan’s Bat Mitzvah at an unusual venue (Fire Island), didn’t faze Susie and the Greater Than We team. In fact, from day one, Susie eagerly took on the challenge of making Morgan’s day not only different, but as special as can be. As parents, our only goal was that Morgan would have the time of her life and remember this day for ever. Susie adopted our goal and made it her own and for that we are forever grateful. As Susie was relaxed and easy going throughout the process, we were able to remain calm and enjoy this journey. - Jill and Jeffrey Aronsky (Morgan's parents)
Our wedding was perfect thanks to Susie! She guided us through planning process with her expertise on the industry and her overall positivity! Susie is so approachable and took the time to make sure she answered every question we had - big or small! Leading up to the wedding, Susie took away so much stress by coordinating last minute details with all the vendors and venue to ensure everything would be great! On the day of our wedding, Susie made sure everything ran smoothly. She notices even the tiniest of details, we could not have trusted anymore more than Susie with the most special day of our lives. Amanda & AJ Nish (the newlyweds)
Susie helped me plan the perfect Bar Mitzvah for my son. She was so easy to work with and kept me on track the entire time. I never felt rushed or bombarded with decisions and knew she wouldn’t forget a thing so I didn’t have to worry. Additionally, she always helped me decide what extras were worth it and what were not. I wholeheartedly recommend Susie and her team for party planning. - Marcy Levitan (Zachary's mom)
When it came time to plan a special milestine birthday party, I called Susie first. That’s because I have a have a super demanding work schedule and as a repeat client I knew Susie would keep me calm and create an experience that would have my guests saying ‘Hil, that was the best party I have been to in a long time.’
The room looked magical and the attention to each detail was off the charts - creative & fun. Thank you, Susie you made it all happen...again! -Hilary Nierenberg & Dr. Binoy Singh
I truly enjoyed working with Susie & her team for my son, Tyler's Bar Mitzvah. I loved their easy going style, their hard work and attention to detail. Susie was amazing at keeping me on task without ever overwhelming me. Everyone was professional and focused to make the party perfect for our family. They really helped me capture the true spirit of my child, which was my goal for the entire evening. Susie is an amazing event planner and a very special person, I highly recommend her! - Julie Plank (Tyler's mom)
Susie was a total pleasure to work with for my son’s bar mitzvah. She immediately understood my vision for the party and added her creative touch in every detail.
Susie’s team was professional and helpful, and her calm, focused approach contributed to a wonderful experience. Susie has terrific energy and took care of everything on the night of the event so our family could enjoy every minute of our celebration. Michelle Coleman (Charlie's mom)
Susie was a godsend to me during a difficult time for our family. She was there with me every step of the way, providing spiritual support and helping me move forward planning our event in a very compressed time frame. Susie has excellent taste and much experience to draw from, which made me comfortable relying on her opinions and the solutions she suggested. Even though I am a bit of a control freak, it was really easy to work with her and the end result was fantastic! Our family and friends really enjoyed themselves as did the B'nai-Mitzvah twins who were thrilled with their big day. -David Fiderer (Jordan & Haley's dad)
We couldn't be happier than we are with the way all of the details came together and were handled by Susie Mordoh for our daughter's bat mitzvah brunch. Having two working parents in our family, we felt so lucky to have Susie atop all of the moving parts that came together so nicely for us on the big day. Her relaxed yet "on it" approach worked perfectly for us, as we always knew she was managing the overall process. She took the time to understand exactly what our daughter and we had hoped for and envisioned and helped bring it to life just as we had imagined. We are so thankful that she played such a valuable role in this special event for our family. We "FEEL THE LOVE" - Aly & Mike Levine (Charlie's Mom & Dad)
When we started planning for a unique fundraiser for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater at the Culinary Institute of America, with 5 re-knowned chefs, an incredible dinner, cocktail hour, live music, silent and live auction, etc. one committee member suggested Susie as a party planner. My initial reaction, was "why?" - we know how to do events.
I was outvoted and was I happy about that! Susie is amazing. It is not always easy to work with a committee of diverse, passionate people yet she was able to gently move us along to producing one of the best events I have ever attended. She is smart, sensitive, enthusiastic, creative (you fill in the great adjectives & she is every one of them). Thank you Susie from all of us at Clearwater - Debbie Cohen
Susie and her team helped us plan an “absolutely amazing” surprise sweet 16 party for our daughter. Not to mention, they pulled everything together within weeks.
Surprising a 16 year old is almost impossible! From faking her out with a different date, to the décor, lighting, music & photo-booth, every detail was spot on!. The guests all had a fabulous time and most importantly Sophia LOVED it! We could not have pulled this off without Susie and Greater Than We! - Andrea & Mike Scarcella (Sophia's parents)
The first moment that I spoke to Susie, I could tell that she was exactly the person that I wanted to help me navigate the seemingly overwhelming process of planning a party for my son’s Bar Mitzvah. She was warm, joyful and supportive throughout and helped us stay true to our vision. It didn’t turn out to be so overwhelming with Susie keeping me on task and helping me prioritize. In the end, the party was exactly what we hoped it would be and it exemplified our values, our son and our family. I could not recommend her more highly! Julianne Metzger (Eli’s mom)
When my daughter said “Thank you, for the perfect high school graduation party” I was so grateful (and relieved). Not only for the acknowledgement but to Susie for helping up plan the whole day. As a working mom, my days are filled. Susie knew that and made everything easy for us. We started with an afternoon luncheon for family and friends and then she transformed our backyard into a ‘kid only’ DJ driven dance party. From start to finish the day was flowed smoothly, the level of detail was perfect and we were all ‘feeling the love’. -Karen Levy (Jayne’s mom)
We are so thankful that we found Susie and Greater Than We to help us plan our 40th birthday bash! Susie was a calming, positive force during a time that can otherwise be so stressful. She had amazing ideas and was there the day of the party to make sure all was perfect. She knew exactly how to set up the flow so that it was seamless and thought of every little detail down to the mints in the bathroom! I loved working with Susie - easy to talk to, efficient and she injected love into the entire experience. The party was flawless, fun and fabulous! I would recommend her for any party large or small. Susan & Scott Malat
"Feel the Love" aren't just words for Susie Mordoh. Susie connects with each family member ensuring that your event will be one that creates lasting memories for everyone involved. As a working mom, I don't know how I could have planned my son's Bar Mitzvah without Susie and her team of experts. Her personal passion and attention to detail are unmatched. Her warmth and energy are contagious, making planning almost as much fun as celebrating. My son loved every minute of his big day. . . .what more could you ask for as a parent?! - Caryn Steinert (Gabe's mom)
"Truly magnificent planning, guiding, nudging, reminding, counseling, calming, inspiring, dealing, making it happen and of course FEELING THE LOVE. Perhaps more important, to towed the ever-so-fine line between classy elegance and over-the-top (with an added dash of whimsy and kid-friendliness). You made it special, and you made it ours. Thank you - Dave Poritzky (Sophie's dad)
We had our oldest son’s bar mitzvah earlier this year. Susie Mordoh was unbelievable.
I knew she would be from the second I met her. She has an incredible energy that makes you feel excited and also reassured. She guided us through the entire process. She made sure I was up to date with anything I needed to do. She connected us with all the right resources. She really listened to us as to what we wanted for our event. She had the most creative ideas and put together a most fabulous party! I will surely be working with Susie again for each of my next child’s mitzvahs. She is a phenomenal event planner and a really terrific person! - Beth Miller (Matthew & Justin's mom)
Susie and her team made our night SO special! Everything was really exactly what I had hoped it would be! The room looked AMAZING, the food was delicious, the DJ was great, the kids were happy and EVERYONE had fun. The entire night was so smooth & easy that I literally did not have to worry about one thing. Every detail was taken care of to perfection. We definitely 'felt the love'! -Susie Moskowitz (Lily's mom)
We are still in awe and amazement after Brady's big day. It was truly perfect and you had a HUGE hand in that. We wouldn't have changed a thing. Thank you for everything, we will continue to 'FEEL THE LOVE' thanks to you. -Aly & Jeff Schlosser (Brady's parents)
Peter and I decided to have an “at home” wedding. This is not something I would recommend for the faint of heart. There are so many things you need to think of and coordinate to turn your backyard into a place that can entertain and feed 200 people! Susie kept everything in order. She had tremendous knowledge of what was needed and knew many local vendors who provided excellent service. Susie immediately established great rapport with the vendors who we had brought in, and was great at keeping everyone on the same page. Her communication skills are excellent. Most importantly, Susie kept us calm and was great at creatively mixing my vision with Peter’s. Having Susie coordinate our wedding made the day completely stress free. Peter & I were able to relax and just enjoy ourselves!" - Susan & Peter Chatzky
I know it's cliche, but I literally did not know what I would have done without Susie Mordoh helping me with my daughter's bat mitzvah. The passion she brings to each project, based on her calling to feel the love, carries through to every minor detail. Her approach is thorough, flexible, non-judgemental and efficient. I felt I was in the best hands from day one and I was right. It proved to be an unforgettable (and stress-free) evening for our family. - Amy Oringel (Sydney's mom)
We consider ourselves truly blessed to have been referred to Susie when we began planning our son's bar mitzvah. As two busy working professionals, neither of whom know much about party planning or details, we hoped Susie would get us through the experience painlessly and happily. We also knew that trying to have a ceremony and party unlike any we had ever been to before in an observant fashion was a challenge--even Susie had no idea what our vision was--and initially neither did we! However, Susie worked tirelessly with creativity and originality--asking the questions we didn't even know needed to be asked and connecting us with all the pieces of the puzzle. She truly made our son's Bar Mitzvah into one of the most special moments of our lives. Everyone is still raving about how unique and special Max's party was--and Susie made all of it come true. We can't recommend her highly enough, and are lucky to consider her a part of our lives. Tracy Shevell (Max's mom)
Susie helped us create a truly memorable 30th anniversary party. She knew we wanted to keep it casual and fun, but helped us with all the special touches that made the evening so special. From the tiki torches that lit the pathway to the party to the tropical cookies and mini flashlights we gave out as guests departed, all the details came together with flair. Susie took the extra steps to make everything run smoothly and allow us to enjoy the evening without worrying about a thing. Guests are still coming up to me a month later and telling me what a great time they had. - Laura & Bob Mogil
Working with Susie to plan my daughter's graduation party was the first and smartest decision I made. She brought her experience in planning, thoughtfulness, creativity and genuine energy mixed with a perfect calm to the entire process. I was able to enjoy the planning and most importantly the event because she thought of everything and pulled it together so effortlessly. If there is an event to be planned- large or small- I would absolutely recommend working with Susie. She is life saver and a gem to work with! - Hilary Nierenberg (Rachel's mom)
Thank you again for helping Camphill Foundation have another wonderful event! Your attention to detail, innovative ideas and flexibility made the event process easy. Plus you made it all fun!
We have work together for several years on our annual gala and can't wait to work with you again on next year's event! - Peggy Osborn, The Camphill Foundation
We intended to host our daughter's wedding without the help of a wedding planner. Five months before the event we decided to hire Susie to help with just a few small details of our daughter's wedding. The first task was coordinating the trilingual wording, art, and custom design of the invitation. By the time the invitations were out the door, we were sold on the value of a good wedding planner. Working with Susie took some of the stress out of planning a wedding. She was always calm, resourceful and creative. Tasks that we thought we could handle on our own benefited from Susie's once over. She always had a "can do" attitude, asked the right questions and kept us on track. The experience of hosting a child's wedding was made more joyful with Susie's assistance. - Julie & Andy Peskoe
I can't say enough about how amazing Susie was in helping plan my son's Bar Mitzvah. My schedule at the time was very hectic and I had little time to plan the kind of party I was envisioning. Susie came along and seamlessly pulled it all together. Her eye for detail, patience and overall peaceful, loving manner made planning the party completely stress-free and fun! - Jessica Semegram (Devon's mom)
Thank you for all your for everything you did which included guidance, support and love. It was such a pleasure to work with you and reconnect ...thank you again for helping our family create such an unforgettable day! We couldn’t have pulled off the 50th Anniversary party without you!. You are now also “Best of Thompson” for whatever that’s worth. -The Landmans (owners of Camp Kennybrook)
"I have worked with Susie many times. My kids have also worked with her on planning parties for their Bar Mitzvahs. She helped me get ready for a big party in my home, giving our place a fresh look; she's hands-on and high energy. Thanks to her incredible spatial sense we moved a few things around and my home was made-over and ready for a fantastic celebration. I have even channeled Susie's generous spirit and saw how great it is that someone else could benefit from items I donated. Working with Susie Mordoh is like a mini-party in itself--it's fun and makes you feel good.” Stephanie Lynn (Ben, Paul & Charlotte's mom)
Susie's talent and creativity were obvious from our first sit-down. She seems to have an unending reserve of ideas, and was able to adapt them to our ever-changing minds. Susie was clearly focused on making our event special--all of our ideas and suggestions were enveloped into the end product. She was gracious, kind and warm throughout the planning process, not to mention completely respectful of our budget--a very significant plus! I recommend Susie without reserve--she will make any party a fun, festive and completely original affair. - Eden Simon
Susie’s spirit, force and inspiration were such a great influence on SPARCs Roaring 20s event. Having to plan 2 events annually, in addition to overseeing agency operations, is a busy load for me. While we are experienced at putting together a themed event, Susie helped us ratchet up the excitement level and sophisticated feel we wanted for our gala. Her resources are incredible and she knows someone to connect with who can fulfill every creative idea we had and she added many of her own. And in the end, she also came in under budget –sweet! I can’t wait to recommend Susie to friends and colleagues when they need an event planned! I know the stress and aggravation that can be part of event planning, but Susie’s great energy highlights the fun and creativity of the process. Rose Rothe, SPARC Founder and Executive Director
We used Susie as our wedding planner and have never forgotten the phenomenal experience. She made the day absolutely perfect. Every little touch she promised would work, exceeded our hopes and dreams. Every decision, everything we stressed over, she took over calmly and kindly. She was never pushy, never judgmental and never stressed. Susie's littlest touches absolutely, positively MADE the day. We loved her and still do. Wish we had another party to plan!!! - Claudia Caine & Lynda Naylor
Working with Susie on our event was like a dream come true. We were already behind schedule when we hired her yet she swept in, took charge of everything, and pulled it all together beautifully. She returned every call and email, was on time for every meeting, and didn't drop a single ball. But, more than that, she brought a terrific vision to the project. She always kept our messaging in mind, making sure every component of the event reflected our mission. And, her beautiful heart and outlook on life lent a truly wonderful zen to the project. I've never met an event planner with zen before! - Barbara Weinstein, Girls, Inc.
Working with Susie Mordoh over the past several years has been a wonderful experience. There is no one better at dedicating their heart and soul to help you achieve the dream you have for your business. Susie is professional, reliable, honest, and a pleasure to work with. Her company has been part of our fundraising efforts, event planning, and our rapid growth over the years. I highly recommend Greater Than We in helping you with your organization's vision. -Noel D'Allacco, Operation PROM Founder
From the logo to the centerpieces, Susie's work for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah was outstanding. It was perfect and I wouldn't use anyone else. I highly recommend Susie for any event that needs a thorough, creative and wonderful planner. - Janine Getler (Emily's mom)
