Incredible every step of the way, simply the best!
I'm not sure that words in a review can fully capture our gratitude and appreciation for Sarah and Katie at Leila Ryan.Sent on 09/24/2019
We had a long engagement and ended up hiring Leila Ryan back in December 2017 and worked with them all the way up to our wedding in August 2019, so over a year and a half. Every step of the way they were on top of everything, provided invaluable guidance and recommendations, were responsive and professional, listened to exactly what we wanted, and were simply the best to work with in every way imaginable. When we finally got to the wedding weekend everything was executed perfectly, there was no stress thanks to them, and we had multiple guests and vendors tell us how incredible they were.
The bottom line is that Katie and Sarah exceeded our high expectations and we couldn't have asked for anything more. They made our dream wedding happen without a hitch, took all of the stress out of planning and executing (they actually made even the most tedious parts of planing fun), and were always a pleasure to work with and be around. I simply can't recommend them enough. Thank you Katie and Sarah, we love you guys!

Hands down, the best!
Sarah and Katie of Leila Ryan Events are quite simply the best. My MOH had gotten married last year and recommended them to me, and it was easily the best decision/investment of my entire wedding planning process (maybe my entire wedding? Sorry, Dan! :).) They are the most professional, responsive, talented, organized, down-to-earth, calming, fun, well-connected duo who made our day carefree, flawless and fun from start to finish. I even had other vendors coming up to me telling me what a joy it is when they get to work with them. For those interested in their services, I HIGHLY recommend going with their full planning package. I did not heed my own advice, and as organized as I am, it was easily the biggest regret I had in this entire process. It is definitely a worthwhile investment, at will allow you to enjoy everything so much more. Either way, if you're recently engaged, and looking for planning services, go ahead and book LRE now. You will be so unbelievably glad you did!Sent on 08/20/2019

Thoroughly professional. Great response time on all correspondence!
I am writing this review as the groom. We enlisted the help of Sarah & Katie with LeilaRyanEvents about 10-11 months before our big day. I am in an interracial relationship (I am a south Indian and my wife is an east coast caucasian american.) My wife and I wanted both an Indian Wedding and an American Styled one. We ended up picking Castle Hill Inn for the american ceremony and the Newport Marriott for the indian one.Sent on 07/15/2019
When we first enlisted their help, we lived in the Midwest. So communication over phone/email/text with our vendors was of paramount importance. We primarily worked with Sarah and she was phenomenal on that front. She never let our nerves get to us. She always had our back and was working to save us money while still giving us the best experience that our heart could desire. Sarah had a ton of vendors she already worked with whom she recommended throughout the process and they all came through exceeding our expectations. Everything from the band, to the string quartet, to the catering staff for the indian wedding, to the donut vendors, etc.
I would highly recommend Sarah and her business partner Katie for any couple in the east coast area.
Key aspects about our wedding & lead up to it:
- 2 wedding ceremonies in the same weekend.
- 1 American ceremony & 1 Indian Ceremony.
- We did not physically live in the East coast at the time of planning so Sarah was of great help when it came to meeting vendors on our behalf.
- Keeping us on track with a timeline they created just for our special day came in handy.
- Payment reminders were handy when we had double the normal vendors as a 1 ceremony couple.
- Responsiveness of Sarah was great.
- Confirmation and clarification questions from vendors was handled by Sarah.
You will not regret picking Sarah & team for your wedding planning needs.
