A Wedding We Truly Enjoyed Thanks to Weddings by Leslye!

Leslye was quick to respond when I was looking for a wedding coordinator and quickly got me on a phone call meeting. She was friendly, professional, and so easy to talk to. Her packages were also the most straight forward and easy to understand. From the phone call to comparing her packages to those of other companies, I instantly knew I wanted her as my wedding coordinator.

My husband and I decided on the wedding day management package. Leslye and her team, Mary and Sandy, hopped on the wedding planning two months before which was so helpful in them understanding all the details and ultimately ensuring a smooth wedding day.

Invaluable reasons Weddings by Leslye is the best:
- Leslye helped create my wedding timeline.
- Leslye kept in contact with all my vendors to ensure they had the correct schedules, etc. so I didn’t have to. I had a lot of vendors, so this was a big weight off my shoulder leading up to the wedding day.
- Leslye, Mary and Sandy all went to my wedding venue final details meeting and my rehearsal for guidance and support.
- Leslye, Mary and Sandy arrived early to the venue to help with setup and coordination with all the vendors. They also helped put on all the boutonnieres for my wedding party and lined them up early prior to the ceremony.
- They ensured we were right on time with the schedule throughout the day. We were never late and everything went by so smoothly. They knew my timeline so well that I just followed their direction that day which was perfect.
- Right after my 1st look photoshoot, I returned to my bridal suite to find a lot of extended family in there. I was so overwhelmed. I just wanted privacy before the start of my ceremony. I also didn’t want a lot of my guests to see me until I walk down the aisle. I didn’t want to kick out family myself and make it awkward. I hid in the bathroom and called Leslye to tell her. Within minutes, Mary came into the bridal suite to politely kick everyone out except for my immediate family. I was so thankful for this moment. They help with any crisis on the wedding day!
- When I was on the dance floor, I would randomly find Mary sneaking from behind to fix the train of my dress. Thank you Mary!
- One of my vendors, the caricaturist, was late and ended up not showing up. Leslye’s team took the initiative to contact him in the midst of everything while also keeping me up-to-date with what was happening.
- They stayed after the reception to help with the strike/breakdown.

Leslye, Mary and Sandy were so patient and positive throughout the process. Leslye never missed my call whenever I needed her and was also quick to reply to every email. She understands that brides get stressed so she will never leave you hanging! The team made the day go by so smoothly that we did not have to worry about a thing. We got to truly enjoy the evening as we were guests of our own wedding!

Full-Service Wedding Planner

We hired Katelyn as a full-service planner. My partner and I wanted someone who had experience with a Western-Indian fusion wedding. Katelyn has had years of experience in the wedding industry along with her mother. After our first call, I knew we had to choose this awesome mother-daughter duo. Katelyn was very responsive from the beginning! She is a very warm, kind, fun, and so easy to get along with! Katelyn was on top of everything! She met with us in person, called, texted, emailed all of our updates, and was there for every question we needed answered! Communication and being on the same page with all the vendors is key to putting on a big event. Katelyn dealt with all of our vendors, made sure to keep track of all the payments, and ensured the wedding day went seamlessly. We would definitely recommend Katelyn and her team for all your wedding needs!

On the day of, her team was absolutely incredible and kept our wedding running like a well-oiled machine.

My wife and I got to enjoy our wedding day to the fullest and it couldn't have been possible without Leslye. She's the best of the best and we'd recommend her to anyone looking to plan their big day!
