A friend of ours had Leeching as their day of coordinator and raved about how happy they were with their wedding, mainly because of how smooth everything went. So when my fiance and I started planning our wedding, it was an easy decision hiring Leeching as our wedding coordinator.
She is responsive, professional, and extremely organized. Leeching asked all the right questions and provided helpful suggestions to make our wedding day more efficient.
After meeting with Leeching 2 months before our wedding to go over the day-of timeline, a huge sense of relief was lifted off our shoulders as we were finally able to put moving pieces together.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a stress-free wedding :)

Leeching is absolutely wonderful to work with and my husband and I wholeheartedly recommend her services. When I first started planning, I knew that I would need some major help with the day of the wedding. My fiancé was doubtful at first about hiring a Day-Of-Coordinator, but soon saw I had made the right choice in having Leeching help us. The day of our rehearsal, our officiant lost his way to the ceremony site and we were only allowed a small window of time to rehearse. I was initially stressed out about this, but Leeching immediately took the reins and orchestrated the rehearsal and set my worries at ease. By the time the officiant arrived, we had already gone through the processional and recessional twice. Leeching had done most of the work with organizing the rehearsal last minute and the officiant only needed to do a quick run-through of the details of the program. (FYI, she is also ordained just in case some unfortunate event should befall on your officiant the actual day of your wedding.) The day of, I only had to show up to the ceremony. Leeching made sure rentals were set up as I asked and everything was perfect and on schedule. Even extremely organized, control-freak brides (myself included) will benefit from having her help. Trust me, the day of you will want to relinquish all control and let someone else take care of things. It is extremely overwhelming as a bride to have to worry about details the day of the wedding, when you have already spent months thinking about them. Do yourself a favor and have Leeching help you on your big day. She’s super friendly, quick to answer any questions, will offer you awesome advice and suggestions, and is great at handling the inevitable wedding mini-crisis so you don’t have a nervous bridal breakdown.
(Also, she has A LOT of experience handling a large Vietnamese or Chinese reception, like ours. Really helpful for 2nd gen Asian couples trying to balance modern tastes with traditional expectations from families.)

L Events is run by Leeching Tran. She is awesome, and did an amazing job in day of coordination for our wedding. She is very responsive to email and easy to get a hold of. We don't know what we would have done without her help on the day of the wedding. She made sure everyone was on time and focused. I would highly recommended her services to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator/event planner. Leeching is extremely efficient, organized and friendly!

Leeching is amazing! She is an incredible wedding planner/coordinator and is dedicated to her clients and to making their special day perfect. She is a lot of fun to work with, and she also provides great suggestions for other wedding vendor services (i.e., officiants, photographers, printers, etc.). We couldn't have had our wedding day run so well without her and would highly recommend her expert services to anyone -- thanks so much, Leeching!

Leeching was absolutely amazing as our day-of coordinator. She helped me put together a schedule for the day, did decorating day-of, made sure the cake and flowers arrived, made sure all the wedding events ran smoothly and according to our schedule, and even helped out with other small tasks we needed done. Leeching made it so that we were able to relax and not worry about anything besides our vows and first dance!

I had originally contacted a Seattle Wedding planner whom I found on Wedding Wire in January. She was already booked for our September wedding date but had referred us to Leeching at L Events. My fiance and I had only lived in Seattle for 6 months and were really struggling to plan the wedding on our own. So, when I met with Leeching, we chatted for a bit, she showed me more pictures, and then gave me her price list to think over things with my then fiance. No need to think through – everything sounded great and I signed with Leeching that day with her Partial Planning package (the middle package of the 3 she offers - Full, Partial, or Day of). By the time we booked with Leeching, we had already secured some of the most important vendors like Venue, Hotel Wedding Block, Photographer, & invitations. The vendors Leeching recommended whom we ended up loving were: DJ, Florals, and Decorations. We had done most of the heavy lifting to find these vendors but Leeching definitely helped validate prices were fair and gave us other options to think about: Caterer, Hair & Makeup, Officiate.
Leeching was easy to work with – very responsive via email. We also set up meetings with her ( 4 or 5 times over the 7 months we were working her) to discuss details in person and make sure we were on track with everything.
Leeching led our rehearsal the Thursday before the wedding. She had us practice our entrance and exits with music – Great idea! On the day of, Leeching had everything under control. She was so calm and collected that I don’t think I even came close to feeling stressed out on our big day. One added bonus – We were more than halfway through our liquor before dinner had even started. Leeching was amazing and stopped by Safeway to buy more for us. If you’re a bride on a budget, keep in mind that you’ll still need a ton of help. All in all, my husband and I were so glad we found L Events and don’t think we could’ve pulled off our wedding without Leeching!
