MoB in Virginia realizes a Santa Barbara wedding at a venue where everything, including kitchen and dance floor, must be rented and set up in 3 outdoor courtyards for ceremony, cocktails, and reception/dancing is a herculean task. She doesn't know what she doesn't know! Who ya gonna call? Leanne Elliott of Soleil Events in Santa Ynez! Her "Finishing Touches Plus" package is magical -- a custom vendor list, on-line planning tool, handling of all logistics (lighting, sound, rentals, layout), leaving the fun decisions to Bride, Groom and parents.Sent on 07/05/2018
Leanne is truly a joy. No more anxiety about hosting a wedding 2,700 miles away! In touch via email and telephone, when we meet nine months before the wedding, she's already a friend. She responds promptly to questions and concerns, offers expert advice patiently, and assists with endless minute details. Leanne recommends vendors who fit our "vision;" all far exceed expectations.
For the 4:00 p.m. wedding, Leanne is at the venue early in the morning to meet the vendors -- caterer, florist, lighting/stage crews, tables, chairs and linen rentals, band, and string quartet -- to ensure precise set-up. At 2:30, the Bridal Party and family arrive; Leanne looks professional and calm, despite having already worked nearly 8 hours! She efficiently guides us and 200 guests through the ceremony, photo shoot, cocktail hour, and reception, making sure Bridal Party and Bride's and Groom's families want for nothing all day.
During Leanne's 18-hour day, she seamlessly handles details, so we can enjoy ourselves, our guests, and spend time on the dance floor. At the end of the day, she oversees vendors to ensure the venue is left in good order. It is like a Fairy Godmother has waved her wand, loveliness prevails until the clock strikes midnight and the Bride and Groom start their new life together, leaving beautiful memories and gorgeous photos of the perfect Wedding Day that Leanne Elliott orchestrated.

On July 2nd my husband and I had our wedding reception at Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos. The day felt like a perfect dream. The flow of the evening went unbelievably smooth and every moment exceeded my expectations. Leanne at Soleil Events was the reason for this. Our wedding reception had a couple unique aspects. We had 120 guests seated at one long table in the vineyard's barrel room and we incorporated 3 different areas of the venue (one for the cocktail hour, another for dinner, and a third location for dessert and dancing). The vibe of the evening was classy, elegant, and romantic. Leanne was wonderful to work with. She knew exactly what we wanted and how to make our vision a reality. I strongly recommend Leanne and am so happy we crossed paths. She made our wedding a day to remember.Sent on 07/18/2017

Leanne is amazing!! We were planning our wedding from across the country and Leanne's help was invaluable to us and made everything so easy and effortless! From our first phone conversation we knew Leanne would be a perfect match for our relaxed California winery wedding vibe! Can't say enough how effortless planning was because Leanne took care of everything and gave my husband and I excellent vendor selections. Such an amazing team and Leanne as the leader created an absolutely perfect day!!Sent on 08/15/2017
