About

Unflappable. Calm under (extreme) pressure. Keeps her cool—with her sense of humor intact.

This is how clients described Color Pop Events founder Leah Weinberg during her former career as a commercial real estate attorney. Today, happy couples have come to rely on that same soothing confidence and rock-solid competence when planning their wedding.

Early in her legal career, it became clear to Leah that she was destined to be her own boss. Constantly brainstorming business ideas, it wasn't until she planned her own wedding in 2012—dubbed the "wedding of the year" by multiple guests—that she knew she'd found her calling. Wedding planning combined her passion for spreadsheets with her love of seeing people relax, smile and laugh. In 2013, Leah launched Color Pop Events to bring her eye for detail and flawless event execution to couples in and around New York City.

Leah applies an attorney's meticulousness to all weddings. She forecasts multiple steps ahead of the game, navigating complexities and steering clear of (or quickly resolving) any problems with limitless energy and resourcefulness.

Whether your wedding is brash and bold or sweet and intimate, Leah turns the overwhelming into the easy with a smile, serenity, and contagious spirit that couples find wonderfully refreshing.

Contact us now to see how we can enhance your special day—and make the months leading up to it just as beautiful.

    Fabulous wedding planner

    I’d like to think that I provided the high-level inspiration for my wedding, but Leah definitely provided the brains and execution. We could not have pulled it off without her. She was a calming, exceedingly competent presence throughout the entire process. She never pressured us on our vision. She was reliable, organized, provided great advice and, most importantly to me, turned out to be a great creative partner. She also introduced us to a bunch of stellar vendors in the NYC area. I interviewed A LOT of planners. Leah was clearly the top of the cohort and I never regretted the decision to work with her. Strong recommend.

    Couldn't have done it without Leah!

    We simply could not have pulled off our beautiful wedding without Leah's planning expertise, vendor connections, and organizational wizardry! We knew we did not have the bandwidth to plan a wedding, given that neither one of us is particularly well-suited to event planning even in the best of non-pandemic circumstances. From our first interaction, when we were debating whether or not to even plan a 2021 wedding, she was sensitive, thoughtful, and, above all, honest. When we decided to work with her, we immediately felt like we could relax, knowing we were in more than capable hands. We relied on her to think of all the things that needed thinking of and to remember what needed remembering. She kept us on track while I was busy taking exams and graduating from grad school. She also helped corral other members of the family and was a voice of reason, reality, and sanity. Leah never judged us or pressured us to conform to wedding traditions or expectations that were not the right fit for us. She respected our priorities, and channeled our vision into a day that was more fun, beautiful and "us" than we imagined was possible.

    Amazing wedding planning!

    It is hard to put into words the impact that Leah had on our wedding, but all I can say is that if you have the chance to work with her – do it. I always knew I wanted to work with a wedding planner because the idea of planning it myself, even under normal circumstances, was overwhelming to say the least. Little did I know that we would then have to postpone our entire wedding due to COVID. I cannot imagine doing that with anyone but Leah. She was calm and collected the whole time and walked us through the process step-by-step. She made sure to check in just to see how we were doing, even if we didn’t have anything wedding-related that we needed to discuss, and made it feel so much more manageable.
    Leah has an amazing network of connections in the wedding industry, and you can’t go wrong with any of her referrals for vendors. Leah is bubbly, funny, smart and quick – and her legal background is immensely helpful with all of the contracts that need to be read, negotiated and signed in the process. If you are looking for a wedding planner, whether for full planning or just day-of, look no further than Leah.
