Hire Elise and Leslie at Love Affair for your Dream Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with Leslie and Elise at Love Affair for my dream beach wedding and I can't say enough good things about them! They were so organized and helpful throughout the entire planning process, and they made sure that my wedding day was absolutely perfect.

One of the things I loved most about Leslie and Elise was that they really listened to what I wanted and helped me to make my vision a reality. They had a wealth of experience and knowledge, and they were able to offer me great advice on everything from table settings, to hair stylists to catering. Our wedding venue was a blank canvas but they went above and beyond to make sure that all of my vendors were top-notch and reflected our style.

On my wedding day, Leslie and Elise were there every step of the way to make sure that everything went smoothly. They were calm and collected under pressure, and they handled any unexpected hiccups with grace and ease. They turned out venue into a floral wonderland and even made sure our dog could come! I couldn't have asked for a better team to help me plan and execute my dream wedding.

I highly recommend working with Leslie and Elise at Love Affair. They are truly the best in the business, a great value and they will make your wedding day everything you've ever dreamed of and more.

Great Event Planner

Kudos and shout outs to Leslie and her team at Love Affair for the spectacular job they have been doing managing events at The Waterfront at the Elks venue. They are professional, detailed-oriented, compassionate and able to adapt. It’s not an understatement to say they are great communicators, are extremely skillful at executing on each event and do everything they can to create memories that last a lifetime! And thank you guys for dealing with the many challenges that you have met head on and for addressing them professionally, equitably and in a positive manner. A strong 10

Leslie is the best!

I had the pleasure of getting Leslie for my coordinator for the Elks lodge in Portsmouth. The minute she took over my event I knew I was in good hands. She was so organized and realized the stress I was under being a covid bride. She took on what ever she could, was supportive in offering suggestions, understanding in family dynamics, and just overall fabulous. Thank you Leslie for making mine and Matt’s day so special and memorable!

Leslie is thorough and professional, and has a bright smile and happy demeanor. She radiates competence and is able to give the gift of being able to enjoy their own wedding to her clients. I believe most of her clients become life long friends - the ultimate endorsement.

Working with Love Affair was ideal! Organized, creative, on time, caring... I could go on. A wedding day has so many moving parts and these ladies were on top of everything. Before the wedding via the phone and the day of. I would refer them and hope to work with them in the future.
