owner / expert wedding & event planner

I have been in the wedding and special events industry since 1994, specializing in wedding planning for the past 24 years, making me an expert in my profession (although, I’m always learning!). My knowledge and love of the industry, attention to detail, and fun personality are what draw me to my passion and the wedding and event industry. Before launching Jewell Event Design in Colorado, I worked for several wedding and event venues, as well as one of the largest catering companies in the state and Google, picking up unprecedented knowledge and experiences along the way. I have worked as a wedding and event venue consultant and have assisted in opening several fabulous venues. With Jewell Event Design, I wanted to provide more personal and detailed service for weddings and special events, which allows me to utilize my style and personality in everything that I do!

“I help clients make the weddings that they’ve dreamed of come to fruition. My happiness comes from seeing everything come together and the smiles and joy that their wedding day brings them.” – Leanne





You'd Be Surprised to know...

I am a comedian and actor. I perform short and long form improv, sketch comedy and game improv. I also work as a commercial and film actor. My sense of humor keeps me balanced!

Things I Enjoy...

Long walks on the beach (yes, I’m serious), a good book, running and hiking, amazing beach vacations, good music and a glass of wine, watching beautiful Colorado sunsets, and most of all, my amazing son.

Something I Dared To Try...

Skydiving! It was amazing and terrifying all at the same time. I am not a fan of flying, so getting on a tiny plane and then jumping out of it wasn't something I ever thought I would do. So glad I did! Sometimes you need to get out of your comfort zone.

Things I Enjoy Most About Weddings...

I sincerely enjoy every piece of it, but the biggest joy is seeing a couples vision come to life on their wedding day and knowing that I’m there so that they can relax and enjoy every single minute of it. Every couple has their own story to tell and I love getting behind that and getting to know them. It’s a very special feeling. Oh, and flowers! I love beautiful flowers!
