"We hired Shine Events to facilitate the wedding week. Leann did an excellent job and also helped us coordinate the vendors. Since the wedding was held at our home there were many additional details and Leann kept us on track and on time. It was a perfect day and we could not have done it without her help. We definitely would recommend their services."

Mother of the Bride

"Leann, you are simply one of the best at event management. You have always been so well suited for our industry- calm, deep care, diplomatic, a love for the aesthetic. Thank you so much for helping to make these enormous events even better."

Leann went above and beyond to make sure our BendFilm BASH ran smooth and looked great! Leann focused primarily on the guest experience and structured each of the elements around that. It was great for our attendees and made our lives much easier. Thank you, Leann and Shine Events!

Todd Looby, Director BendFilm

"Leann is a wedding coordinating goddess!!! She turned my dream wedding into a reality. She took care of every detail, negotiated and coordinated all my vendors, and ensured my wedding day went perfectly. My awesome dog was my ring bearer, and she even made sure he was taken care of during the hustle and bustle of the reception! Leann is amazing. I don't know what we would have done without her!"

Kristina Guerrero

"I was incredibly lucky to have Leann as my wedding coordinator. From the first day I met with her she was fantastic. She is knowledgeable, organized, completely understanding of all of a brides fears and needs and has great taste and style. I trusted her suggestions one hundred percent. She has been in the planning business a long time and it was evident. She listened to what I wanted and always steered me in the right direction. Our wedding was perfect. I want to have another event just so she can plan it for me"

Cynthia LaRoche
