Our best wedding planning decision we made: hiring Leila Ryan Events!!
Where do I even begin?! Our wedding was absolutely flawless thanks to Sarah & Katie. They went above and beyond to make sure the entire weekend ran smoothly for us and they executed it to perfection. My husband was a little unsure about hiring a day-of coordinator at the beginning but he now fully agrees with me that hiring Leila Ryan Events was hands down the BEST decision we made throughout the entire wedding planning process! I am normally an anxious person but I can say I truly enjoyed every minute of our wedding weekend without any hint of anxiety because Sarah & Katie took care of every single little detail. Not only were they attentive and helpful to my husband and I but our entire family and bridal party echoed that the wedding would not have been the same without them. No matter how much you plan, things always come up last minute and it was a true luxury to be able to sit back and enjoy the moment because I knew Sarah and Katie were in charge and in control. The zipper on two of my bridesmaids dresses broke an hour before we had to be at the church and Sarah fixed them within minutes while Katie was busy steaming my brothers tuxedo while it was on him because he was running super late after his daughter took a longer nap than usual! These are only two small instances where they silently made sure everything was perfect in tandem with running absolutely everything else!! I promise you that hiring them is the best possible investment you can make for your wedding day. As a bride who planned most of her wedding, I cannot stress enough how seamlessly Sarah and Katie stepped in and made our wedding better than I ever imagined. If I could do the wedding all over again, Leila Ryan Events would be the absolute first vendor I would hire without question!! We cannot thank Sarah and Katie enough for making our wedding flawless!Sent on 11/13/2019

Sarah and Katie are the Best!
We hired Sarah and Katie for the full weekend package for our wedding and it is by far the best decision we made during our wedding planning. They were with us every step of the way and kept us on track the whole year (I always looked forward to email updates from Sarah!). They recommended incredible vendors (who they had great relationships with already) whose work blew us away. It was always so comforting to know I could run anything by them throughout the planning process. Our wedding weekend ran so smoothly- I truly got to relax and spend time with family and friends because I knew Sarah and Katie were taking care of all the details! These ladies are incredible and so easy to work with! Thanks again for everything Sarah and KatieSent on 11/05/2019

Sarah and Katie for the wedding win!
Wow, where do I begin? How about with the end of the story, which was the Most Magical Day we could have ever imagined. (Does anyone else read a book from back to front?) As a detail-loving Mother of the Bride [with an even more detail-loving daughter and bride], we had to be the most high maintenance mother/daughter duo Sarah could have ever dealt with. Every decision was met with ... ahem, contemplation, which meant we pushed every single deadline to the brink. Ok, we pushed every deadline past the brink. Sarah not only kept us on track, gently reminding us of upcoming deadlines, but she maintained a sense of poise and grace throughout the entire year we worked together. Quite the accomplishment, since “Type A” Mother of Bride in North Carolina and “Type A” Bride in New York was recipe for “Type Gridlock” in Newport, lol. Sarah was an absolute dream and I cannot imagine not having her to guide us, keep us on track, and keep us calm throughout a year of destination wedding planning. Everything we dreamed up, even last minute changes, was met with helpful get-it-done mentality. The number of hats Sarah wore for us was astounding: Vendor Liaison...Contract Negotiator...Budget Manager...Concierge...Welcome Box Builder...Tour Guide...Personal Package Delivery Location...Wedding Day Champion...Trusted Friend. Although Sarah was our main contact, Katie was also a GEM throughout our planning process. The Leila Ryan ladies were truly a dream team; they were like busy worker bees on our wedding day, making so many things happen behind the scenes that we weren’t even aware of. The end result was a perfect, magical day/night that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. If you want to keep all the hairs on your head (without adding gray ones), contact Sarah and Katie without hesitation for all your wedding planning needs. They are truly a dream...and will make your wedding day a dream come true!Sent on 11/11/2019
