LEANNE JEWELLColorado, Los Angeles & Special Destinations


My inspiration for Jewell Event Design is to provide superb personal and detailed service for weddings and special events. Before launching Jewell Event Design in Colorado, I worked for several wedding and event venues, planed corporate events for Google, and captained one of the largest catering companies in the state, picking up unprecedented knowledge and experiences along the way…but also watching clients get brushed over as they tried to make important decisions about their events.

I have specialized in wedding planning for the past 24 years, and have assisted in opening several fabulous venues, making me an expert in my profession (although I still find moments for learning!) My knowledge and love of the industry, attention to detail, and comedic personality are what draw me to my passion for assisting my clients as they navigate the wedding and event industry—this job 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. I cultivate so much happiness in seeing all the pieces come together—the smiles and joy that a wedding day brings.” – Leanne

We thrive on hilarity—enjoy these outtakes.


I bet you didn't know that Leanne:

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!

I am totally serious about the beach. Also, I love an engaging book, running and hiking, good music, a glass of wine, watching beautiful mountain sunsets and hanging out with my son.

loves to step out of her comfort zone

I can't believe I tried skydiving! I am not a fan of flying, so getting on a tiny plane—and then jumping out of a tiny plane—were never on my to-do list. It was amazing and terrifying all at the same time. I'm so proud of myself for doing it!

loves loves loves all things wedding!

I sincerely enjoy every second of it. But my biggest joy is watching a couples' vision come to life on their wedding day and knowing I'm there so they can relax and enjoy all of it. I love that two people have welcomed me into their story—it's a very special feeling to get to know them and understand their bond from behind the scenes. And then, the flowers. Let's not forget beautiful flowers!

Michelle Miracle—Los Angeles


With a background in television post-production, project management, and  coordinating events for one of the largest Jewish communities in Los Angeles, I bring a lot of skills to the table. I will vet the best vendors depending on your needs, as well as hire and oversee the expert staff that will carry out all the details of your special day. I am the “boots on the ground” for all events in Los Angeles.

No stranger to large-scale events (can you say Jewish High Holy Days services for 1000 people daily over five days? No problem!), I have been in Los Angeles for 12 years and know this city inside and out. Leanne and I have been friends & associates for almost 20 years, and together we make a great team—focusing on all the things you don’t want to think about—so you can just have fun and enjoy your day!

Fun facts about Michelle: I am a television and film actress, as well as a comedian in all trades of the industry. I will bring light-heartedness and fun to your planning process!
