hello! i am susanne capello, founder and creative of chantal events, where imagination is bliss and creativity knows no boundaries. i focus on creating unforgettable experiences, by designing, planning and producing impeccable weddings and events throughout the sf bay area and breathtaking destinations throughout the world like the caribbean and europe. each celebration is inspired by your story, your vision, your dreams and your imagination and is combined with elements of luxury, elegance, sophistication and style to bring them to life. 

i'm a caribbean soul, born and raised on the exotic, colorful and vibrant island of curaçao, where food, music, friends, family and entertainment have always been key elements for my most memorable experiences. i love art, design, fashion, gastronomy and travel. i believe 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."  

my style is described as contemporary glam with an edge. i am inspired by the works of tim burton, alexander mcqueen, jean paul gaultier and edward gorey... just to name a few. when it comes to creativity there is no such thing as the impossible. i love what i do. it's dynamic, exciting and especially so very rewarding to see the look on a client's face when their vision becomes a reality. it's not just about creating events, it's about creating experiences that give you stories worth sharing.
