Heather and Kennedy made my day absolutely amazing and stress-free. I hired them as my decorator and day-of coordinator respectively, and the whole day was so effortless. Kennedy made an almost minute-by-minute timeline that the whole bridal party referred to all day, and she got with all of our vendors ahead of time to coordinate set up times, flower drop offs, DJ cues throughout the night, etc. When we had an issue with an unruly guest later in the night, I watched them handle the situation immediately and I didn’t even need to stop dancing. Truly fantastic. As far as decorating, Heather made great suggestions and I did rent several items through her, but I made several DIY pieces and had my own centerpieces and votives that my husband dropped off at the venue the night before, and Heather set up everything! These ladies saved me multiple headaches and stress, which is incredible considering Covid threw us some curveballs. They were supportive and rolled with everything, highly recommend.Sent on 08/19/2020

Heather is the best-very creative, responsible, and helpful!!
We had to rearrange our wedding 3 times due to COVID-19. She smoothly helped us transition to each postponement and change and did it flawlessly. She will help coordinate our reception party that we will have next year!!Sent on 10/21/2020

Heather did my decor set-up and take-down for my wedding, while Kennedy was my day-of-coordinator.Sent on 06/05/2019
First, decor.. My ceremony had to be moved inside last minute due to rain. While I knew this was a possibility and inside was our back-up plan, it was very unexpected, and we had never gone over exact details of where decor would go, set-up, etc. I asked Heather to use as much of my ceremony decor as she could, since most was handmade, but she has very little instruction due to the last minute change. It was BEAUTIFUL! I have NO idea what I would have done without her. On top of this, she was so helpful, organized, and comforting. On the day of, I didn't have to lift a finger. It was such a welcome relief.
Kennedy was absolutely amazing as well! She coordinated all the last minute details, especially with the last minute rain change, and made sure that everything ran smoothly. She helped me through every last minute crisis, from moving my ceremony indoors to needing eyelash glue after the first look to making sure someone stood in when the flower girl was late. All of my vendors commented on how organized and awesome she was, and I'm confident that my wedding would not have run half as smoothly without her.
All I can say is HIRE THESE LADIES!!!! They were the single BEST investment I made in the entire wedding planning process (and super affordable, especially for all of the work they put in). I absolutely promise you will not regret having them.

Minimal Expectations, but Blown Away!
We found Heather on The Knot with zero personal referrals. We were hesitant to choose this very important vendor with nobody to tell us either way about her services. From the first communication BEFORE WE EVEN HIRED her, she would reply to my emails almost immediately. This would later continue to be way she communicated with us until our wedding day was complete! She was also always available via text, anytime. She's lucky we were both so busy, or we may have really given her a marathon for her money. Each person close to us, be it a family member or my best friend who hosted our wedding would immediately say, "Oh yeah, everything is going to be more than ok", when meeting her for the very first time.Sent on 06/04/2019
In sum, here is my wife's list of adjectives for Heather and her company:
Attentive, prepared, engaged, thorough, self-assured, responsible, knowledgeable, in-charge.

Heather, owner of Leave It To Us Wedding & Event Planning, is sensational!! From my initial phone call she was polite, professional and LGBTQ accepting. She listened completely to what our vision was for our wedding day and made it happen. Everything was beautiful and elegant, beyond our dreams for our special day!! She will respond quickly to emails/text and always knows what to do to solve the problem at hand. We cannot imagine how it would have been possible with out her and her fabulous team!!Sent on 09/04/2018

Lynne and I had waited a long time to make this dream come true. When we came to you guys you never hesitated about our wedding and you ensured that the vendors you recommended were just as excited about our marriage. Unfortunately that has not always been our experience.Sent on 10/17/2016
I felt that once we started planning we were swept up in your arms and that you guys just took care of us.
Lynne and I both work in the world of hospitality and customer service so we know what great looks like. The vendors you did recommend were top notch. Every one of them were professional, timely and very caring. I felt like they were invested in us and in making our day amazing. You should be proud of the relationships you have formed with these vendors.
So let's get to the specifics:
I always felt that Beth, you were a calming yet forceful presence. The rehearsal and wedding day were so easy. I actually said to Lynne the night of the rehearsal "I'm scared because it is going too well". Thank you for caring about us and our family. You were kind to every single person - even when they were driving me crazy. Every time I felt stressed you were able to talk me off the ledge. As a person who "controls" so much at work it felt amazing to be able to give this up and enjoy the experience.
I am still amazed as to how Heather, you were able to take my dream wedding vision and make it appear. We had guest from Chicago and Manhattan who said that it looked like something out of a magazine - wow talk about impressing people. The decorations were beyond what I expected and absolutely beautiful. I cried when I saw the room not just because it was gorgeous but because you "got it" and it meant the world to me.
I want to think that thank you is enough but somehow it feels weak. I do know that it feels good knowing that there are people who care about their work and the relationships that they form with their clients.

Having that trusting relationship in someone outside the wedding party meant that I could keep calm to really ENJOY my day. Beth gave me that. Thank you Beth!Sent on 10/15/2015

Leave it to us was incredibly helpful! After having to fire my previous wedding planner, I was really stressed. When I met with their team, they put my mind at ease and had many options for me to choose from as far as how involved I wanted them in my planning process. Lauren was my day of coordinator and was absolutely amazing, I didn't have to worry about a thing! Heather provided all of the decorations and did a truly fantastic job. I really couldn't have picked a better company to help me with my big day.Sent on 10/20/2015

The ladies of Leave It To Us were amazing with making my special day perfect. They often could anticipate my needs before I knew of them. Any time I had a question, concern or any want, they were there to help in every way they could. From providing helpful checklists, offering vendor suggestions, setting up the details with the salon, to making sure everything went well for our ceremony and reception. I would recommend Leave It To Us for any friends wedding or any other event someone may need help planning. Thank you ladies for doing so much for me and always making my wedding a priority.Sent on 10/20/2015

Working with "Leave it to us" was absolutely wonderful. I saved more with $ with vendors than I spent on the cost of their services. All of their preferred vendors and recommendations were very professional, easy to work with, and reliable. Planning with them is easy and the decorations were perfect when we walked in. Thank you Leave It To Us for making our day so special!Sent on 10/20/2015

Beth and Debbie coordinated my wedding and I couldn't have asked for an easier, more carefree day! Leading up to our wedding day, Beth worked with me to plan out the ceremony and brought up things I hadn't event thought of yet, which was a huge help. On our wedding day, Debbie and Beth made sure everything ran smoothly from start to finish and made sure my husband and I had everything we needed at all times. They even dealt flawlessly with our quirky organ player!Sent on 10/20/2015
These ladies are so easy to work with and made me feel relaxed and comfortable so that my Type A personality didn't have to worry about the small things. I would, recommend their services to anyone!

LITU was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable when it came to all the small details of our wedding day. They helped it run smoothly, our decorations were lovely, and Heather even stepped in as a bartender when one of ours cancelled the day before our wedding! Thanks LITU!Sent on 10/21/2015

Heather is who worked with us. She was fun and listened and did everything she could to make my daughters wedding all it could be. We had a few mishaps (what wedding day don't) but she stepped in and took care of the problems and let us enjoy the day. Choosing Leave it to us was one of our best descitions we made for this wedding.Sent on 12/17/2014

Our wedding reception went flawlessly because of all the hard work and dedication from Heather. She set up our entire venue for us and everything turned out amazing! Heather was very responsive to email, text, and phone calls throughout the entire process and made sure that we received exactly what we wanted. Everything was exactly how I envisioned and I am so happy I chose this vendor to do everything for me, it definitely took a lot of stress off my plate. Thank you so much, LITU!!!Sent on 10/18/2014

I have had this company do my daughter's wedding and then my son's wedding. Heather took the stress out of the wedding planning process. On both occasions Heather listened to the visions of the bride and groom and displayed them in perfect detail. Each wedding was absolutely amazing and made this special event memorable for everyone who attended.Sent on 12/18/2014

Heather and Danielle were AMAZING! I had a small wedding but guest were coming from many states and I was moving to the state that we were getting married in, so most of our communication was over the phone or via email and Heather made me feel as if she was right there in California with me. I can't express enough how much stress having Heather and Danielle took off of me. They are beautiful women whose goal was too make my day the most amazing day ever which they did. At first I was hesitant in spending the money (extremely reasonable) because I thougth I could put that towards my dress or the reception, but besides saying Yes, to my husband saying Yes to the wedding planners was the second best decision that I may. And Oh yeah, Heather and Danielle can totally dance. Truly, truly, truly....if you are looking for a wedding planner..stop thinking about it and call Leave It To Us.Sent on 10/06/2011

Leave it to Us (LITU) is amazing. Beth and her mom, Debbie, made sure that our day was everything we ever wanted. We had several major glitches in planning our wedding (like our original venue deciding we weren't the right fit for them after we'd already put in our deposit, and then we were scrambling to find someplace else before everything was booked!), and Beth helped us get through it all. On the day of the wedding I didn't have a single worry because I knew that LITU was there to make sure everything went as planned. You can't ask for a better planner/coordinator, especially for the price! If you're getting married anywhere in or around SE Michigan, you can't go wrong with LITU!Sent on 09/20/2011

We loved working with Beth and Debbie! They handled everything professionally and quickly. I would have been so stressed out about everything but Beth provided the support that made me enjoy my day. I would recommend their services to anyone. It's definitely the only way to go!Sent on 07/12/2011
Jennifer · Married on 06/11/2011
WOW and I glad I hired Beth and Debbie! They made my life so much easier trying to plan a wedding from 700 miles away. I couldn't have done it without their help. They truly became friends of mine and were there every step of the way, making sure I had things done on time and offering me moral support!Sent on 06/28/2011
The rehearsal went fantastic, they made sure everyone knew what they were doing and also made it very comfortable. The DAY OF I couldn't have imagined it without them! Debbie made sure I was relaxed in my bridal suite which I am forever grateful for! She sat with me and held my heavy flowers. She got me water when I needed it. It was just really nice. Beth made sure everything ran smoothly upstairs which it did! I can't think of anything that went wrong!!!! After the ceremony, they took everyone over to the cocktail hour and got everyone seated for us. They made sure we were all announced and had time for everything (cake, first dance, other dances, flower toss, garter toss, etc) I will be hiring them again for other parties because they absolutely rock and are VERY VERY reasonably priced! If you're thinking about hiring a coordinator or at least someone to keep you on track, HIRE THEM, don't hesitate, seriously!
Also, they hired a new decorator, Heather who made the finishing touches on the reception venue, she did an amazing job. It was more than I could have ever dreamed of! She did a fantastic job setting everything up and putting things where they needed to be. (She was a little extra $), but worth it. My family or I didn't have to set up which was extra nice because it reduced stress.
Love Leave It To Us and Event Planning!

If you are from out of town this is the comapany to use. They found and set up interviews for me so that I could fly in and make decisions quickly over a weekend. Although we had to communicate via e-mail, text and phone I always felt my needs were a priority.Sent on 06/02/2011

Leave it to Us is a great vendor to have on your side during the wedding planning process. Beth helped me plan my wedding (which was beautiful and perfect in every way) in only 5 months. Beth has great relationships with all types of wedding vendors and was able to connect me with great and reasonably priced companies to accomplish my wedding dreams. I would recommend Leave it to US to anyone planning a wedding.Sent on 11/19/2009
Thanks for making my dreams come true!
