Planner Gratitude: Dandelion Events

With Thanksgiving almost a week away, I thought I would spend some time thanking the incredible planners who literally keep my business afloat.

Today’s post is dedicated to Leslie of Dandelion Events, who plans gorgeously heartfelt celebrations at incredible North Bay venues. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Leslie on countless weddings over the past few years, and I’m always so excited when I get a new inquiry that includes her as the planner.

Why is Leslie such an amazing planner? Well, first off - she might be the most down-to-earth planner I know! She is so calm and collected, which I’m sure is a huge relief to the couples she works with. Her zen-like composure makes even a major hiccup feel like no big deal, and in my experience the events she plans always feel seamlessly breezy.

As a vendor, Leslie is super communicative, and totally trusts me to take her design ideas and run with them! She is also equally great to work with when she’s on the sidelines, if the couple wants to work with me directly. I’m always so thrilled to collaborate with her because I know her couples always have amazing taste, and an eye for design.


Here are some of my favorite weddings we’ve collaborated on together:

There are countless other favorites, of course - and hopefully many many more to come.

Leslie, thank you for all of your support over the years - I am so grateful we found each other!
