“nothing ever becomes real, ‘til it is experienced” – john keats

chantal events is a boutique event design, planning and production company based in san francisco, california. we host events in the sf bay area, as well as many destinations around the world, including europe and the caribbean.

the company was founded in 2014 by susanne chantal capello - a caribbean soul, born and raised on the exotic, colorful and vibrant island of curaçao. she lived in the netherlands for seven years before moving to san francisco in 2009. food, music, friends, family and traveling have always been key elements for her most memorable experiences. susanne draws her inspiration from cultural experiences, art, fashion, gastronomy and travel. she believes imagination brings creativity to a whole other level and as tim burton once said, "anybody with artistic ambitions is always trying to reconnect with the way they saw things as a child."

it is always an honor to be part of a special celebration, whether it’s a milestone birthday, a wedding celebration or any occasion worth celebrating. we dive deep to discover your story and identify the kind of experience you want to create for your celebration. through design we include the heart and soul of your culture, your traditions, and the elements that are true to your authentic self.

" i love what i do. it's dynamic, exciting and so rewarding to see the look on a client's face when their vision comes to life. for me it's not about creating events, it's about creating authentic experiences celebrating people." - susanne chantal capello
