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.

Phenomenal Wedding Captain
Working with Leah last year was a highlight from my 2019 wedding photography season. Weddings are a collaborative celebration/play/mini-series/life-changing event orchestrated between the couple, their families, wedding planner, and all the vendors involved.
Leah put together a phenomenal vendor team for Karen and Peter’s wedding at 501 Union in Brooklyn last August. She then enabled all the talented vendors involved to excel at their given tasks. She listened to my needs as a photographer and made sure that I would have a proper timeline and structure to get the photos that I wanted to deliver to the couple. It was a treat to work with her because I was able to solely focus on taking photos, and not also coordinating the wedding, which so often falls on photographers when there is either no planner, or a lackluster planner.
Which Leah is not.
She’s professional, meticulous, calm, dedicated, and thoughtful. She also has one of the most playful design spirits in the industry and it’s always a delight to see her creations.
She is an incredible wedding planner who takes tremendous care of her couples, and also vendors, creating a gorgeous canvas for a fantastic wedding experience.Sent on 01/02/2020

Perfect from beginning to end!
I remember speaking with several people when looking for a wedding planner and it was really hard to distinguish one from another... until I spoke with Leah. From the very beginning, it was clear that I was speaking with someone who was not only qualified and competent, but who really listened and understood the approach that we wanted to take toward planning our wedding. Leah made every aspect of planning easy: first sending us a selection of vendors who matched our style and vision perfectly, then kept us perfectly on track without feeling intrusive. The entire time she listened to our vague ideas and gave us useful feedback on how to make them come to life. She is also highly communicative and a great problem solver, coming to us with solutions rather than problems. I could be here all day writing about how wonderful she is. But most importantly, she’s a pleasure to be around and we felt perfectly comfortable and secure with our wedding in her hands. Needless to say, our wedding day was an absolute dream. We cannot thank you enough, Leah, for making a daunting experience so much fun. We will truly miss not seeing you around anymore!Sent on 06/12/2019

Radiates competence and calmness
When selecting a planner, Leah was the obvious choice for three main reasons. First, her down to earth and warm demeanor immediately made us comfortable and confident that she would be easy to get along with and be able to calm our planning anxieties. Other planners we interviewed seemed forced or overly bubbly. During interviews, other planners also made assumptions about what kind of wedding we wanted and how we'd use a planner, whereas Leah made it clear she was skilled at handling many different types of weddings and any vibe of couple.Sent on 06/02/2019
The second reason we went with Leah was her experience dealing with queer weddings. She had the sensitivity and know-how to use appropriate language and ask the right questions. The third reason was how Leah packages her services. We liked that she offered a level of involvement that could save us some money and also allow for collaboration, rather than other planners who cost more and who seemed eager to take over.
We clearly made the right choice. Working with Leah was such a breeze, and made the whole planning experience SOOO much more comfortable. There were the practical benefits - connections with great vendors, creative ideas, keeping us on schedule. And then there were the emotional benefits - Leah was always on it behind the scenes, monitoring everything, helping to keep us calm, and intervening when the occasional vendor started to get on our nerves.
We couldn't recommend Leah enough. In those stressful pre-wedding months that come with juggling not just tasks but lots of people, it was amazing to have such a nice, competent woman in our corner!
Leah of Color Pop Events is a style maven! This woman knows how to take a great idea and make it shine. Her attention to detail and creativity when it comes to thinking outside of the box truly make her a unique wedding planner. Our favorite part about Color Pop? They don't produce the same event over and over. Each party has a one-of-a-kind look with clever accents. We love working with Color Pop Events and capturing all of the personal touches!
