|Vendor Spotlight|: Jewell Event Design
We are very excited to highlight one of our favorite wedding planners, Leanne Jewell with Jewell Event Design! She is always such a joy to work with, super fun, and does a fabulous job; so we reached out to find out more about her and the business.
Tell us a little bit about Jewell Event Design.
I have been a Wedding and Event Planner for just over 23 years in Colorado. Jewell Event Design was launched out of love in December of 2015. We are a Wedding Planning & Event Design Service. We specialize in simple, elegant and luxury weddings. We are planners through and through and love designing and executing events. We also plan social and corporate events!
What makes you unique to other planners in Colorado?
I have an amazing sense of humor and an ability to execute events in an extremely calm manner. I really try to make sure that my clients are relaxed and having fun throughout their whole planning process and particularly on their wedding day. We go above and beyond and our packages are all-inclusive and custom tailored to fit every client. Our packages include everything our clients may need and if they need less, then we will adjust their package accordingly.
What wedding trends are you loving right now?
I am still very much in love with simple elegance along the lines of whites, ivory and greenery. However, the exact opposite end of that spectrum is exciting for me too! Strong and bold, beautiful colors really excite me!
Can you name your most memorable event?
Gah! I have had so many of them! I’ve been very blessed to have several high-end (millionaire) weddings and those always blow my socks off! I just wrapped up the wedding for Jerry Greenfield’s (Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream) son and new daughter-in-law and their theme was chaotic floral and was BEAUTIFUL! All of the guests participated in the theme and wore floral prints. The flowers were stunning, colorful and over the top…which was so amazing to see come together. I also got to build a paper flower wall for them, which was huge and involved intense, gorgeous colors. But most of all, they were a FUN group of people!
What is your number one tip for couples planning their wedding?
Do not book a single vendor or your venue prior to researching your budget and overall vision and what that looks like! I have a lot of clients that book venues, etc. prior to setting a budget and it ends up causing them a lot of hassle. Let a planner help you! Even if it’s just a free consultation. We offer a complimentary budget break-down for our clients, regardless of whether they book with us or not. It’s really helpful and our clients appreciate it!
What other kinds of events do you like to help with besides weddings?
I enjoy all types of events and love variety! I particularly love working on fundraisers and things that make a difference. We support several charitable organizations throughout every year.
What’s next for Jewell Event Design?
We are expanding! We are currently in the process of launching Jewell Event Design in the Los Angeles market. We will be focusing on Los Angeles, Malibu and Orange County. We are also working on a “women-to-work” program, where we train women who are trying to rebuild their lives in our career field so that they can refocus their lives and build something for themselves! I am so excited about this program and looking forward to helping empower women to be the best that they can be!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am a professional Comedian and I also work as a Commercial and Film Actress. I LOVE IT! It keeps me balanced in this awesomely busy industry of ours 🙂
What is your favorite hang out spot in Boulder?
Anywhere on Pearl Street Mall that has Happy Hour!
What is your favorite outdoor activity in Colorado?
Hiking & Trail Running. I love Sanitas! Lounging by the pool with a cocktail. Oops… I named too many.
Anything else you would like to add?
I LOVE working at Rembrandt Yard! It is one of my all-time favorite venues for weddings and events! (don’t tell the others) 😉
