YEAH it’s launch day!!! I’m thrilled to finally be able to share with each of you what I have been working on over the past year. Thank you so much for checking out our new logo, new site and learning about the new services we’re offering to our 2017 clients.

When I started my business a little over two years ago I had an idea of my ideal client, the types of weddings and events I wanted to plan and thoughts on my brand. As I’ve expanded my services, gained experience and grown as a designer, those ideals have evolved. The look of Jen Leslie Events today is exactly where we’re headed as a full service wedding + event planning company. We’re here for the style-conscious, outdoorsy, madly in love with her man, Northwest girl who is absolutely thrilled to be committing her life to her best friend and wants a stress-free planning and designing experience with someone who understands her needs, is hardworking, reliable, and fun to work with.

So why did we choose this new look? I wanted to create a new logo that was more sophisticated and spoke to our ideal clients. I wanted a website that was easy to navigate with larger images of our work, more details on our services and a better blog interface so you could learn tips and tricks, see behind the scenes images and get to know us a little better. Overall I wanted something fresh and original. I will always be proud of v1 of our site because it’s something I designed with my father-in-law from scratch, but seeing images of our work in this new format brings a huge smile to my face and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Now that you know a little bit about our new look, let me jump to the really exciting news…our new services. I’m thrilled to announce that Jen Leslie Events is now offering florals and additional consulting services!!!!¬†

I’ve always had a passion for flowers. Whenever my Mom would purchase flowers, whether from the market or even the grocery store, I always asked to arrange them and took my time selecting the vase, arranging each bloom and admiring how they looked once they were assembled. Over the past two years I’ve attended workshops, read books and blog posts, watched tutorials, toured Seattle’s local wholesale floral markets and had great conversations with other florists about all of the beautiful blooms, and the adventure of creating arrangements and bouquets for a wedding day. Everything I had studied and practiced brought me to my sister’s wedding day where I was able to create all of her arrangements and florals. It was such an honor for me to be able to do that for her and I knew after that moment that I wanted to continue perfecting my craft and offering this to my clients. I love designing the arrangement by thinking about the color palette, textures and the local seasonal blooms available. I’ve discovered that I have an organic, gardenesque style that involves a mix of neutrals with pops of color. If you’re interested in having Jen Leslie Events design and create the florals for your next wedding or event, please let us know! For 2017 we are only offering florals to those that book one of our planning services, so please keep that in mind!

The second service we’re excited to be launching is our Cocktails + Consulting package. We understand that not everyone can afford a wedding planner, or even a day-of coordinator, but we believe that everyone should have an incredible, well organized, stress-free wedding. That’s why we’ve created Cocktails + Consulting. We’ll meet at your favorite bar or restaurant and chat through all of your¬†wedding questions. How much alcohol to purchase? What to tip your officiant? How many people can comfortably sit around a 60″ round table vs. a 72″ round? Which photo booth to hire? We’ll tell you anything and everything you’d like to know. Plus we’ll send you home with our month-by-month checklist, a tipping guide for all of your vendors, and our very own little black book of trusted vendors in the greater Seattle area. Reach out and let us know if this is something you’re interested in!
