Twenty five years ago, while on vacation with my family in Coeur d’Alene I watched as a wedding planner helped a bride through the lobby heading to what I assume was her first look. In every job and experience after that, I have always thought back to her joy and what an incredible job that would be.


Fourteen years later, my husband and I moved to Arizona for his career, and I had the opportunity to get my start in the event industry. The dream of being the one to help a couple on their wedding day had finally come true! I worked at a wedding venue and was given the chance to wear many different hats and help couples through one of the most memorable days of their life. While working with all these couples, I was asked to help with weddings outside the venue, and I made the decision to start Andrea Leslie Weddings & Events.


The company started with my husband assisting me on my events and over the past eight years has grown to the incredible team we have today.
