Leslye was the day-of-coordinator for our wedding at Camp Ketcha. It was really important that we had a great coordinator for our wedding because there were a lot of moving parts at our venue. Leslye vastly exceeded our expectations. She came t...
o the rehearsal prepared with all the details prepared for the ceremony (the processional order, where everyone would be standing, timing of everything), and worked with the officiant to make sure they were on the same page. On the day of, she and Nick (her assistant for our wedding) helped make sure all table settings and decorations were just right before the wedding, including making some of the floral centerpieces. Throughout the day, Lesley kept vendors aware of the schedule and any last minute changes made. Leslye repeatedly checked on my husband and I throughout the night to see to make sure we'd eaten enough and see if we needed anything (she even texted us before the wedding in the morning reminding us to eat, which was greatly appreciated!). I think how Leslye and Nick dealt with the chaos before ceremony best demonstrates her exceptional work as a coordinator. It was still raining up to an hour before our outdoor ceremony was supposed to begin and she got our reception room ready for the ceremony instead in literally less than 10 minutes. The weather ended up clearing up and we decided last minute to have the ceremony outside and she quickly got the reception room put back in place for dinner while Nick dried all the seats outside off before any guests arrived.
Overall, our day ran so smoothly thanks to Lesyle and Nick. If there were any issues, we had no idea because they immediately took care of them before anyone could notice. I chose Leslye as our coordinator because I knew after my first phone call with her that she was someone who can take charge and get things done and that's absolutely what she did. We're so thankful we had her there on our wedding day - it couldn't have happened without her!

Leslye did an excellent job as the day of coordinator for my daughter's wedding. Everything was perfect and went without a hitch thanks to Leslye. If there were any problems, we didn't know about them. It is obvious with Leslye's experience s...

Wedding planning is pretty overwhelming, so having someone who can give insight into the process is invaluable. Lesley is a pro, she’s been doing this long enough that she is a great resource for the industry! She’ll think of things you definit...
ely won’t have even considered, which will save you lots of headaches down the line. A few of our vendors were directly recommended by her – and they were absolutely wonderful, she knows the best people for the job! Lesley was great to work with and she kept me on track throughout the process. On the day of the wedding – she was there to help with anything we needed, including repeatedly sewing me into my dress after the eye hook gave out!! Not to mention we definitely would have forgotten to actually sit down and eat at our own wedding without her.
She really went above and beyond helping us find a venue – she spent a couple of her weekends very generously going with us to northern NH to check out different venues! It was great having her there to guide us through the process and use her extensive experience to help us navigate the pros and cons of each one. She even drew up helpful comparison guides to give us a better picture of the cost and benefits of each different venue. If you’re looking for a wonderful wedding planner to help you through the process and to be there to think of everything (so you won’t have to) on your wedding day, go with Leslye!

dled every little detail 1 at a time. Karen was more than a wedding planner she became more like family, like a 2nd mom to turn too! I was so at ease planning my wedding that people would often comment at how pulled together I seemed. She handled everything! ANd when things got a little bumpy, she was there to tell me to enjoy my time and let her handle everything. That alone was priceless! In the end, I found myself missing working with Karen. I wish I was able to plan more events :)She made our wedding stress free, enjoying and a night that we and many others will always remember. It was beyond what I had hoped for!!! Thank you Karen for everything you did. Your creativity, flexibility, patience and professionalism. I know you enjoyed the day as much as we did!
