World Class Design, Planning, and Execution--A Wedding for the Ages!

Michelle Cousins and her MLE team, especially Heather Hull, are the best in the business for a reason--completely on their game and genius in their ability to create a vision and execute it flawlessly and with grace.

They were true collaborators throughout the entire wedding planning process. We felt seen, heard, and honored. MLE uses software tools to keep track of everything and to anticipate and minimize surprises. They are high tech and high touch at the same time.

Heather could not have been more professional and gracious as she escorted us throughout the wedding planning process and on the wedding day. She was everywhere all at once, and always with a smile.

Michelle Cousins created and realized an elegant, beautiful vision for our daughter's wedding. She knows what works and what doesn't. She has a keen sense of aesthetics, flow, and how to create the consummate wedding experience.

Overall, MLE has the design chops, brilliant visioning skills, and the team and resources to make a wedding dream come true. We wholeheartedly recommend MLE as a world class organization and would use them again for any and all events in the future.

AMAZING wedding experience!!!

From the beginning, Elysha (our coordinator) was amazing. She was organized, told us what to expect, helped us set priorities, and started recommending vendors. If I was to plan my daughter's wedding again, I would use MLE again! They took all of the stress away from my daughter and me. The worst part of the experience...it is over. MLE created a dream for us that came true. I would tell anyone that asked that they should look no further for a coordinator than MLE. They are truly the best!!!!

Working with Michelle Leo Events the past year for three wedding ceremonies I had the pleasure of getting acquainted with Michelle and her highly trained staff. Their expertise and teamwork made everything flow smoothly and without hassle. At each event, the wedding participants, brides, grooms and the guests were all completely satisfied from my estimation. I would recommend Michelle Leo Events to any of my close friends or family searching for a well-organized, experienced and personable wedding planner.
