I highly recommend the team at Love Affair! I booked a two-hour consultation with Leslie and it was worth every penny! The first thing that struck me was how friendly she is, I instantly felt comfortable chatting with her. She really listened to what we had in mind and offered suggestions that were a perfect fit for our personalities. She helped us to put together a budget and was spot on with cost estimates for the vendors that we've booked to date. In order to get the most out of your consultation, I recommend going prepared with a long list of questions; the more you can pick her brain, the more valuable the time will be for you. We didn't personally need a full wedding planning package for our event but, if we did, I would not have thought twice about hiring Leslie on the spot, she rocks!

Leslie was fantastic to work with. My only regret was not engaging their services sooner as Love Affair provided my Day Of Coordination. It would have been so helpful to have had them planning the wedding from the start.

I loved working with Leslie at loveaffair. I don't think I could have gotten through the wedding day without her. Any little problem that came up she dealt with. It was also such a stress reliever not to have to deal with the vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and being confident everything would be taken care of.

Leslie and Elise were SO amazing to work with. Our wedding weekend went off without a hitch, even in the pouring rain! Both the planning process and day-of coordination was more than we could have hoped for. Our intimate ceremony was far more beautiful than we could have imagined, and our guests raved about how fun our big outdoor reception was....even in the stormy weather! Leslie and her team scrambled to make sure our guests were comfortable and stayed dry throughout the night. I don't think anyone will even remember the rain :) We highly recommend The Wedding Belle/Love Affair. They are truly outstanding.

Leslie at Love Affair is amazing! She put me at ease during my daughter's wedding weekend and the month that led up to it. She is very organized and takes care of every little detail. Because of Leslie, I was able to enjoy this very special weekend. Thank You!

We had the most amazing wedding and it was everything we dreamed it would be thanks to the help of Love Affair. Elise and Leslie are amazing!!! From start to finish they were there every step of the way. They helped us finding the right DJ, lighting, catering, beauty and so much more. They made sure the wedding day was perfect for not only us, but also our family and friends. My dress was a bit wrinkled from transporting and I told Elise at the rehearsal. She said not to worry and that she would take care of it. These ladies think of it all, no detail goes unnoticed. Everything was organized and well planned. All we had to do was show up the day of, get ready and have the most amazing time!! All other details were handled by Elise and Leslie. We truly couldn't be more thankful to Love Affair for making our wedding the best day ever!!!

Leslie and Elise from Love Affair planned my husbands' 50th birthday party. They were the most professional, creative, communicative and fun party planners I have ever worked with! We had over 100 guests and when people asked me if I was stressed about the planning, I always replied "no" because Leslie and Elise took care of everything. As many guests commented, "not a detail was left out" and that was all due to the talents of these amazing women. I highly recommend them for ANY event!!

My daughter and I planned all of the decorations and hired all of the vendors for her wedding, but gratefully The Wedding Belle offers a package called Tranquility that provides outstanding services to coordinate the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. They provided a timeline for the wedding day, which was invaluable, and also handled everything from picking up food to keeping all of the vendors, as well as the bridal party, on schedule during the reception. We delivered all of the props, signs and other special amenities to Leslie the week before the wedding and she made sure they were all properly (and beautifully) displayed at the reception, then collected all of them at the end of the night and delivered them to my home. They distributed all of the gratuities to the vendors throughout the night and even delivered flowers from the reception to the hotel to be used for the brunch the following morning. I was able to enjoy the wedding and the Tranquility Package made that possible. My daughters wedding was perfect in every way, and came off without a hitch, thanks to The Wedding Belle and owner Leslie Barbini!!

The Wedding Belle is a well oiled machine! Leslie and her Belle's work so hard to make your day memorable and relaxing. My family and I hired Leslie for the day of coordination for my wedding that took place on September 12th. She went above and beyond just the day of coordinating and made the whole planning process so much easier. When it came to the day of the wedding, Leslie was always on point and available to myself and my family for anything we needed. With the few hiccups that occurred, Leslie made sure that my husband and I were unaware and just focusing on enjoying our wedding day. I cannot express enough how grateful my entire family is to Leslie and her staff for making our wedding day spectacular!
