Creative weddings for the modern boho couple

Love Notes

With over 200 weddings and 24 years of combined experience, the Leilani Weddings team creates dream weddings for the modern boho couple

Danielle and her team made our dream wedding a reality. We had multiple challenging requests – like a small budget, unconventional venue locations, perplexing transportation needs and confounding timing issues just to name a few – but they were able to handle it all and make it go smoothly. During the planning process Danielle was incredible. She would check in with us, make sure everything was on track and put all bridezilla nerves at ease. There are countless elements she facilitated like budgeting, choosing our vendors, decorations, visiting the venues and so much more. Danielle was always professional, timely, accurate and really went above and beyond all of my expectations (even when we would ask for some outlandish things). The decision to hire Danielle and her team was the best money that we spent on the wedding. I just wish we found her sooner! My husband and I realized the features that made our wedding so special and unique would have never happened without Danielle and her team. Thank you for the beautiful memories of our wedding that we will treasure forever.

Danielle is fantastic!! She is extremely professional yet will make you feel like you’ve been best friends your whole life. No matter how far away your wedding or event is, she will never prioritize her clients, rather she will always make you feel just as important as someone whose wedding is tomorrow morning. Nevertheless, she delivers to the maximum and does an incredible job at everything!

I had a great experience having Danielle as my full wedding planner. She was always on top of things, returned my emails right away, listened to my requests, and always checked in with me to make sure I wasn’t behind on anything. On the day of my wedding, she made sure everything went smoothly, and when there was an incident with the sparklers, she went out of her way to get glow sticks since sparklers were very hard to find in the remote area our reception was at. She saved our night! Overall, she was an excellent wedding planner!

My husband and I didn’t have a plan to hire a coordinator, but thank goodness we did. Without Danielle’s help and contacts, I’m not sure we could’ve gotten everything I’ve dreamt of, from his/her reception chairs, to large gold blow up balloons that I requested like 2 weeks out before the wedding! She made everything happen and everything went SO smooth. TOO smooth! There wasn’t a single thing that went wrong and communication throughout the whole wedding process was phenomenal. Your wedding is a stressful time and without people who know the industry, it’s hard to find the right contacts (along with the right PRICES!). Danielle is very organized with an excel spreadsheet of day-of events along with lunch that was even brought to my bridal party and I while we were getting ready! Danielle made it a point to cater to my husband and I. Could NOT have done it without her! Still hearing today that it was the best wedding that our guests have ever attended. Do yourselves a favor brides, hire Danielle!

Danielle was such a valuable asset on my wedding day! We had her for day-of coordinating. She is super organized and on top of it! She really helped out a lot during the family pictures (I have a large family who was very loud) and she was great at communicating with me. She looked out for details that I wouldn’t even have thought of. I cannot recommend her enough!

A wedding day is anything but a regular day and with family and friends wanting every minute of your time it’s tough to keep it together while you’ve been planning the biggest event of your life. To say Danielle and her team made it a breeze is an understatement. Constant updates and options was the name of the game and come day of wedding we didn’t need to worry about anything. Her team is organized, prepared and there wasn’t an issue I needed to hear about because it was resolved before it would have affected us. We had time to not only enjoy our wedding but enjoy the experience of planning a wedding, and that to us is the difference maker. Our memories of our wedding, wedding planning and working with Danielle are all great ones. Thank you Danielle for helping our big day be captured just the way we imagined it.

Planning a wedding can be an intimidating task. The moment I met Danielle, we just clicked. I loved every one of her ideas and suggestions and felt like she understood my wants and needs, as well. She made the planning process seamless and easy. Every question/concern/idea I had, she handled with care and professionalism. On the day of our wedding, Danielle was a rockstar. My vision and dreams came true above and beyond what I could have expected and it was all Danielle’s doing. I didn’t have to lift a finger or have a worry in the world. She handled everything and literally made the most special day of our lives perfect in every way. My friends and family got to interact with Danielle, as well, and had nothing but positive and appreciative responses. I can’t thank her enough for everything she did for my husband, myself and our friends and family. I’ve already recommended her to several friends who are getting married. If you want your fairytale wedding, work with Danielle!

Danielle, you and your team did a FANTASTIC job! Thank you so much for everything. You really helped keep my head on straight the whole time. Frank and I had a blast! You guys are the best, thank you! …and from the groom: Seriously, Danielle! You were the absolute best, you were AMAZING! You did such a wonderful job coordinating everything and controlling the chaos. It was so much fun working with you, thanks for helping us maintain our cool. You ROCK!

Our wedding went smoothly & completely stress free because of Danielle. I only wish we would have hired her sooner. Danielle is great at what she does. She anticipated our needs & made sure everything went on without a glitch. She helped make our day perfect and i would gladly hire her again. Looking back I cannot imagine our wedding without a coordinator.

Bringing on Danielle was the best decision we made during the entire process. The connections she had built and the vast knowledge she had of the industry allowed us to find options for our tent, restrooms, bar service, florals, and more within our very small budget. She was a master at scheduling and was able to plan the “big day” in way more detail than I ever would have thought to, which proved to make the event run so much smoother. I could really tell that it was Danielle’s experience that made the difference in knowing just how long each part should last. The biggest difference she made for me, and what I appreciate most, was that despite how much I wanted to control all the decorations and nitpick everything, I found myself easily relying on Danielle to take over. I was able to enjoy the day as a member of a bridal party and let her work her magic. She and her team were able to take our concept and materials and turn it into my sister’s dream wedding. Choosing Danielle will be the best decision any bride, groom, or family can make for their special day. I have the utmost respect for her and trust her judgment with all things wedding!

SARA POLITO

As the ” Mother of the Bride” helping with my daughter’s wedding was a joy and dream that I had always envisioned. Danielle helped us understand “why” a wedding coordinator would be helpful. Danielle was patient and offered suggestions which in the end made for a beautiful event. Danielle was very open to my suggestions of repurposing flowers from the ceremony to the reception and when my daughter’s bouquet was delivered and wasn’t quite as planned, Danielle with her floral knowledge was able to make some changes to give it the perfect “look” it needed. Guests are still commenting about the beautiful wedding!

LORI FRIEDBERG

My journey with Leilani Weddings was almost a year long process. I started off a bride with not much of vision of what my wedding should look like or entail. I had no favorite color and the only thing I knew for sure is that I wanted a beach wedding. Over the year, the team at Leilani Weddings really took the time to know me as a person and as result they were able to adequately match my personality to the details of my wedding. The team did an exceptional job with matching me with right vendors and ensuring that I had both the best quality and the best prices. Early on in my wedding planning process, I had decided on a florist I met at a Bridal Show. As time went on, it became clear that my vision and the florist were not aligned. The team at Leilani Weddings moved quickly (4 weeks) to help me find a new florist for the wedding. They created the most beautiful vision board to help solicit quotes. The vendor I eventually selected was very impressed with the organization and the detail of the vision board. The final results were astounding. Throughout the final stages of planning, the Leilani Weddings team stayed in close contact with all my vendors coordinating payments, times of arrivals, set-ups, etc. There was not much I had to think of because most of it was handled. The day of the wedding things went off without a hitch! Vendors arrived on-time and the Leilani Weddings staff was very attentive to the wedding parties needs throughout the day. My family, friends and vendors often complimented how organized and well ran everything was that day. The on-site coordinator at the venue complimented the reception room décor by stating the room was one of the best she had seen on-site. I owe that to the execution of Danielle and her team. My Husband is a simple man and he would have been happy with white table linens, DJ and In & Out. On our way home, he says to me that was the best and most beautiful wedding he had ever attended with this complete look of “AWW”. I knew at that moment, Leilani Wedding had done their job to perfection! The sentiment of my husband was matched by family and friends we said over and over that our wedding was not only visually beautiful but fun, a perfect combination! From my vantage point, the whole day went flawless. What I heard most from my family is that hard work pays off because they could see all the organization, details and work done to make my wedding day a success. Thank you to Leilani Weddings because there is no way I could have done it without you!

Danielle made the wedding of my dreams come to a reality! She had great suggestions, great taste, was organized, was conscious of my budget, and helped with creatively figuring out ways to stay within budget! Danielle is very responsive to her emails and made the communication process very easy. I had a lot of questions and we emailed constantly throughout the planning process. I felt that no matter how silly or what time I emailed her (I work at night and sleep during the day), she prioritized my needs and made my schedule work around hers! I was very nervous about all the changes in my wedding and she was able to communicate with my vendors well! She also has great referrals and I used a few of her vendors which turned out to be the best choices I have ever made! I had a lot of personal items that I brought in the day of the wedding and she stayed organized throughout the whole process. We met many times throughout the year and she was very thorough throughout the planning. I had A LOT of ideas and Danielle was able to help me take my ideas and transform them into a reality. The day of the wedding – she rocked! I felt so calm and enjoyed the day, knowing that everything was going to work out! The set up of the ceremony and reception were unbelievably gorgeous and all my guests said that this was the nicest wedding they have ever been to! I’m a little sad that it’s over, but when I look back on this wedding – I know that she helped create the wedding of my dreams and I have no regrets.

I am a Southern California Wedding Photographer and I first met Danielle when she coordinated for one of my clients. She was so fantastic and warm that I knew I needed her for my wedding. So, this past spring we hired her and her team for Month of Coordinating and she rocked it. She was on top of everything anytime I had a question or a need leading up to the day. There was SO MUCH that had to come together the day of my wedding and she made it all happen despite crazy unexpected weather. She and her team were so helpful and sweet to me, even helping me rinse and blow-dry my train because it had been covered in mud during the ceremony! We couldn’t have done it without her!

SARAH SOTRO-TORRES

Danielle did a superb job on our wedding planning! Even though she signed up for “day of” planning, she went above and beyond to make sure we were all set for our big day. Danielle has amazing organizational skills and time management skills. She has amazing rapport with all the vendors which made a huge difference in how things got done and how we were treated. Even though our wedding day was complete chaos, Danielle remained cheerful and calm throughout the entire event. Our entire family was extremely impressed by her leadership and thoroughness. Our wedding could not have been more perfect. She captured my dream and made it into reality. Having her by my side on through this journey made everything possible. I couldn’t have done it without her!
