Leanne at Your Name It Events is EXCEPTIONAL. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Leanne and her team. Throughout our wedding planning, Leanne was a great resource to bounce ideas off of and brainstorm with. Leanne was there to answer any and all questions that I threw at her - and boy there were a lot of them. The last month leading up to the wedding was a whirlwind. Leanne's calming presence was welcomed and necessary. We felt as though Leanne was there every step of the way in the weeks leading up to the special day. There was no question that went unanswered or "uh oh" that Leanne was phased by. It was clear throughout the process we had made the right decision hiring a wedding planner but the day of our wedding made it almost feel like destiny. We did not hire just a wedding planner, we hired You Name It Events and Leanne Valdes. Our wedding day was flawless (at least to me it was). Yes, we put a TON of our own efforts into a vision. Yes, it was months of planning and wishing and hoping it would come to fruition. But honestly, Leanne and her team executed on every aspect of our day flawlessly. She dedicates the time and care necessary to remember the details and make sure YOUR day feel as special as she'd want HER day to be. We cannot thank You Name It Events and Leanne enough. Don't even think on this decision - just hire You Name It Events!

If you are planning a wedding... You need Leanne! Planning a wedding should be fun and that can be true with Leanne & her team. I wanted to make sure that our wedding was still a reflection of my husband and I while keeping it stress free. That also means that we wanted details that were truly us... cue when Leanne comes in! Not only did she give us feedback and mainstream our ideas, but she is a great sounding board for things that have worked in the past and ways to make it your own.
Also, the day of my wedding she was wonderful! I trusted her to make decisions for me since she knew my vision and my style. I actually was able to relax on my wedding day and enjoy all the details we had put in place. Since I had hired Leanne, my family was also able to enjoy the wedding day because they knew I was relaxed. All the things that she took care of (handing out tips, keeping time and managing schedule, creating timeline etc) are all details that would have landed on my family to be in charge of if she was not there.
Now with my friends planning their own weddings, the first piece of advice I tell is to hire Leanne!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Leanne is absoluteley amazing! We have worked with "You Name it " in a few ocassions. Everything was perfect coordinated. You Name It team was very discret but very helpful in the same time. We totally recommend them to any wedding that want to be a succes!!

You Name It Events was recently the planner for a wedding at our Paramount Theatre wedding venue. After working with several coordinators for various events, I was extremely impressed with Leanne and her team. The amount of attention they gave to the client, and every detail, was absolutely amazing. There was not a situation they could not handle flawlessly. I was also surprised that Leanne was so integrally involved early in the planning process and was assisting the couple from their first site visit! She has a wealth of knowledge about the industry and really goes the extra mile for her clients. Leanne is a thoughtful and caring wedding planning professional and we cannot wait to work with her again!

We first met Leanne when she was hired for a friend's wedding and was reviewed as, "the best money spent on the entire wedding". Now, we work together as often as possible! Leanne and her team are incredibly attentive, organized, and professional. Leanne is an absolute master at event coordination, and her craftiness really makes her productions extra special. Her integrity, and dedication to her clients have impressed us again and again. We love YNIE!!

You Name It Events is absolutely wonderful to work with! Leanne is always friendly and professional, we love working with her on events. We know that she always has every last detail taken care of.
