2017 // Day-of Wedding Coordination by Jen Leslie Events

TELL US ABOUT JEN LESLIE EVENTS

Jen Leslie Events is a Seattle-based wedding, floral & event design studio. Whether you’re planning an elegant wedding or a fancy birthday bash, a sweet baby shower or a corporate holiday party, our team can help you bring extraordinary celebrations to life.

At Jen Leslie Events, we find fresh inspiration in every client’s story, and we work to fill your event with details and moments as unique as you are. We understand that special occasions are about more than how things look —it’s about how all those details make you and your guests feel. In everything, we want you and your guests to feel welcomed, at ease, and more than a little amazed!

WHAT INSPIRED YOU ABOUT GHGH

Giving back is so important to us as a company, so when the opportunity arose to donate one of our day-of coordination packages, we jumped at the opportunity. We’re looking forward to working with a couple that loves to give back as well, and as a group supporting others in need through the Dream Foundation and Mary’s Place.

WHY DO PEOPLE LOVE YOU

Clients love how organized we are, as well as how we put them at ease on the day of the wedding. We’re fortunate to work with some incredible couples, and it’s our honor to help them plan, design and execute the biggest celebration of their life. We love to be a sounding board for our clients, someone they can trust, and we love when they tell us how much fun they had through the planning process.

WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?

We are proud to offer the most services in the greater Seattle area including planning, design and floral services. We have the perfect packages for newly engaged couples whether they’re looking for someone full service, someone to design, execute and produce their florals, or maybe they’re looking for assistance 6 or 3 months prior to the wedding to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. Whatever they’re looking for, we can help with our 9+ years in the field, stylish designs and attention to detail.

WHAT ARE YOU DONATING?

Day-Of Wedding Coordination
You’ve planned every detail of your big day and now you want it to go off seamlessly. Let Jen Leslie Events put you at ease by executing a flawless wedding for you! We’ll start working with you two months before your wedding to create a custom timeline, floor plan and vendor contact sheet. Then we’ll connect with each of your vendors to ensure everyone is on the same page and all of the logistics have been smoothed out. We will be the first to arrive and the last to leave on the big day, making sure every candle is lit, every place card has been set, and every little detail is accounted for. This package includes two in-person meetings, vendor confirmations, one hour of ceremony rehearsal management, access to our emergency kit and ten (10) hours of setup and/or wedding ceremony/reception coordination by your coordinator on your wedding day.

Donation Value: $2300

2017 // 3-Hour Photo Booth Rental by 321 Foto

TELL US ABOUT 321 FOTO AND YOUR ULTRA LUXE PHOTO BOOTH

Our “Ultra Luxe” is a classic enclosed, vintage style photo booth for those with a penchant for tradition. The “Studio” is an open set photo experience and brings a strong visual element to your venue with our designer backdrops. With almost a decade of photo booth experience, we continue to balance sophistication and fun, while capturing truly beautiful photos. From classic black and white to hyper-colorful, we continue to innovate for our unique clientele.

WHY DO YOU LOVE GHGH

I became involved in GHGH during a time when I was assisting a friend with stage 4 cancer at the her end of life, and coping with the diagnosis of cancer of my husband’s sister and father, which all overlapped at the same time. It was a time when I needed hope, and was moved (to tears) by the generosity of our wedding community for people who were strangers to them. Giving is a big part of my nature, and seeing how a few photographers and wedding planners had taken this concept and broadened it into this incredible fundraiser, I could not have felt more honored to join this team.

WHAT DO YOUR CLIENTS SAY

“I LOOK SO GOOD?! I LOVE THIS PHOTO BOOTH!!!” is a quote that is repeated at every.single.event we attend. Its true, and its not by accident. In addition to our fantastic photo booth, is our incredible attendants who keep guests engaged at the photo booth & create a photo guest book that will be your instant heirloom. We love what we do, and its evident in all of the details of our service.

WHAT MAKES 321 FOTO UNIQUE

321 FOTO is a product created by Marilee Kimball, a furniture & industrial designer from Cornish College of the Arts. The arts are incredibly important to us, and we partner with artists whenever possible for our exclusive collection of backdrops. We are local, award winning, and love love.

2017 // Stardust Session with Laurel McConnell Photography

 Meet Laurel McConnell, who describes herself as chief photographer, cocktail maker and janitor. She forgot about a thousand other descriptors, including entrepreneurial, clever, mischievous, FUN. This girl is serious fun.TELL US ABOUT LAUREL McCONNELL PHOTOGRAPHY

Throughout the last 16 years, I’ve photographed weddings in hurricanes and dust storms, on islands and in snow, multi-day cultural events and 1.5 minute ceremonies on New Year’s Eve, and have documented love in America and not-America. I learned photography from the basics up at art school on actual film, evolving alongside the digital industry and refining my craft as went. Even though I’ve spearheaded worldwide commercial advertising shoots and have been commissioned to photograph A-List celebs and VIPs, I still love the intimacy of a wedding; each one brings an exhilarating challenge, warmness, and uniqueness that I am ever thankful for!

WHAT DO YOUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH YOU?

They have so much fun :). Often we become great friends after we shoot together, and always keep in touch over the years!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO GIVE, AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED?

I’ve been a VP, board member, or vendor each year, and sometimes all three!

The 10 year milestone is a big one. We never dreamed our organization would have flourished this way- touching nearly each person in this industry and helping so many people realize their dreams along the way …. I kinda wish I could travel back in time and show the 10-year-ago us how amazing this organization has become 🙂
