29:11 Celebrations is a wedding planning company that believes you should be a guest at your wedding! We have been coordinating weddings in Hampton Roads since 2007. With a strong vendor base 29:11 will work with you to create the wedding of your dreams! Let 29:11 take all the stress off of you with one of our many wedding planning packages! We offer wedding packages ranging from Total Wedding Planning to Month-of Wedding Coordination. If we don’t have a package that fits your needs we work with you to create a package just for your wedding! As of 2013 we are proud to offer consulting and packages for DIY brides!


Susan Benjaminson, the founder and owner of 29:11 Celebrations has been planning events since she was a child. Ask her mom or dad and they will recollect on the many holidays, plays, neighborhood kids’ carnivals that she had planned prior to ten years old. The first wedding she coordinated was when she was 19 years old, for a bride who waited two weeks prior to her wedding date to begin the planning process. After wrapping up college and being a bridesmaid for the fourth time, Susan decided to open an event planning company, specializing in planning on a budget.

When working with 29:11 Celebrations, you will work directly with Susan, and depending on the size of your event, you may work with Ruth also. The two of them together make an excellent team that thrives on making your event flawless and memorable.

What’s in a name? A lot of people ask where 29:11 Celebrations got it’s name... When trying to decide on a name Susan fell upon this verse:

“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

At 29:11 Celebrations we believe that when planning any event, whether it is a wedding, a 13 year old’s birthday party, or even your schedule for the day, no matter how much planning and preparation goes into the event, God has a plan for all of us. Read less

Susan was a joy to work with in planning our wedding ceremony and reception! We chose the month-of coordination service, and she went above and beyond to make our special day stress-free and absolutely beautiful. She was an invaluable resource in the weeks leading up to the wedding, working to sort out vendor issues, confirm pickups/deliveries, and create/tweak timelines. But that was nothing compared to the huge help that her and Ruth were for our big day! They were both present at our rehearsal to help communicate details and share timelines with our family members and wedding party. Then, they set up all of our decorations at both the church and reception venue, accepted deliveries, packed up gifts and decorations at the end of the night, managed to keep everyone on schedule, and even squeezed in a visit to our hotel while my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. Susan even gave my husband and I a ride to our hotel at the end of the night! Susan and Ruth were an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would give (and already have!) my highest recommendation for working with 29:11 Celebrations.

There aren't enough positive comments I can leave about Susan and her team. She not only kept me calm, but made our big day amazing and relatively stress free. She is very thorough throughout the whole process, and thinks of things that I never would have without her expertise. She has a positive attitude, and always goes above and beyond for her clients. She is easily available to talk, discuss plans, or simply calm your nerves. She made sure our wedding was effortless, and made sure we were able to enjoy our beautiful experience. I highly recommend her!!!!

It is difficult to put into words what an amazing job Susan and her staff at 29:11 Celebrations did for my daughter’s wedding. I truly could not have made it through weeks leading up to the wedding, and the wedding weekend without her. Susan always responded quickly, traveled all the way up into the mountains of Virginia for the weekend of the wedding, and worked many hours to make sure every last detail was in place. The wedding ran on schedule, the venue was decorated beautifully, and the day couldn’t have been more perfect! There is no one I would recommend more than Susan and her crew at 29:11 Celebrations if you are planning a wedding or special event!

Susan made our day run smoothly and on time!! She was very professional. She was hired as a gift from my now in-laws and I couldn't have asked for a better gift! We hired her early (a year in advance), and we stayed in touch the entire time! Our timeline was perfect when the big day came!

Susan was a wonderful wedding planner. We used 29:11 celebrations as a day-of coordinator and Susan helped keep my wedding organized from the rehearsal the day before the wedding to cleaning up after the reception. I can't recommend her enough.

I have been writing reviews for the past two days for all of the wedding vendors who were a part of my daughter's wedding in Smithfield on Sun, June 8th. I saved Susan for last, not because she didn't do a good job, but for lack of words and what exactly to say because there just aren't enough words to thank her for the amazing job that she & her staff did. Susan is awesome! She stayed on top of everything every step of the way. She was there at the crack of dawn to help us decorate the dock the morning of the ceremony and still showed up for the wedding after I nearly gave her a concussion lol. Seriously, Susan, thank you so much for all your time & effort to make Kayla's day perfect. She stayed in touch with us every step of the way and kept us calm & relaxed. We could not have done it without you. If anyone is looking for an awesome event coordinator, look no further than Susan & the staff at 29:11 celebrations, you will not be disappointed.

I can't even being to tell you how fantastic Susan and the 29:11 Celebrations crew were!! We had a bit of a "rough around the edges" reception venue but we gave Susan & team all the decorations and they made it look gorgeous! My family and I couldn't believe the transformation! Susan met with us before the wedding, walked through the reception venue with us, and helped us come up with a timeline for the day. She knows exactly what she's doing so I felt completely comfortable and confident. Her team totally took the stress out of wedding planning. My husband and I felt completely calm the day of the wedding, because we knew we were in good hands. It was nice to have someone else willing to corral our friends and family and make sure everyone was where they needed to be!

29:11 was worth every single penny! I would definitely recommend them to family and friends in the future!

I used Susan for the "Month of" planning and she was perfect! She helped me with any questions I had and even suggested vendors for me. On the day of the wedding, nothing went wrong at all! I think she does a great job and you always need someone for the day of your wedding which is why I really loved the package she offered. She also has great pricing! I would definitely recommend her to every bride! I just got married in April and it turned out perfect!

Susan was amazing. I came to her with a vision and venue in mind. She really helped me to build on my own ideas for my wedding and make it into something spectacular. Her recommendations for vendors were spot on for what I was looking for and were very much in line with my vision. Having her as my wedding planner was so important for so many reasons like knowing if something was actually a reasonable estimate for services, knowing where to look for services, knowing what services fit my price range and my vision, knowing reliable vendors that weren't going to rip me off, having someone to follow up with vendors particularly the week before the wedding, and most of all having, as much as possible, a stress free wedding day. Her rehearsal and day of coordination was incredible. She had timelines for everyone involved in the wedding from rehearsal to the end of the reception, worked with the minister and the photographers to make sure that we had the best of everything possible, worked with the hotel to ensure our rooms were taken care of and all transitions were seamless, herded everyone where they were supposed to be at each juncture, worked interference between crazy family members (her assistant even dressed my elderly grandmother), worked with the DJ/lighting designer to make the reception venue even more beautiful and ensure we had great music, and made sure my husband and I were tucked away in our suite at the end of the night with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and 2 pieces of delicious wedding cake.
I could not have done it without Susan! She is absolutely the best!! Very professional, amazing design prowess, and really willing to go the extra mile for her clients!
HIRE HER!!! :D :D :D

Outstanding service from an extremely professional and organized individual. Susan Geoghegan's attention to the smallest detail help make this a very special day. She handled matters in a timely manner. Susan constantly reached out to us ahead of our daughter's wedding to make sure things were going smoothly and to set our minds at ease on the many matters leading up to the wedding. I am not sure what we would have done the day of the wedding without Susan. Whenever we turned around she was there ensuring things moved along. She was like a sponge absorbing all our worries so we could totally enjoy the day. If we had another daughter getting married, 29:11 Celebrations would be our Wedding Planner choice, Hands Down!! Thanks so much Susan.
