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!

As my daughter's wedding grew near I began singing praises for Leslie and the Wedding Belle. Mildly panicked one night about the reception in our back and side yards, I asked Leslie the next day, "Are you sure the tables will fit?" They did indeed fit; this was one of a hundred details handed over to The Wedding Belle before and on the wedding day. It's tough hosting a reception at home - but the Wedding Belle allowed my wife and I - and most importantly our daughter - enjoy the day and evening to the fullest. I highly recommend the Wedding Belle. Good natured, confident, enthusiastic and professional, detail-oriented and listens to the client.

I recently got married on August 1, 2015 and had the pleasure of working with Leslie from The Wedding Belle in planning my wedding. The ceremony took place in York ME at the ViewPoint Inn over looking the Nubble Lighthouse and the reception was at the Portsmouth Harbor Event and Conference Center in Portsmouth. Leslie and her team were able to take the visions in my head and turn them into a reality that was above and beyond what I could have ever dreamed. Leslie made my life so much easier by being the one point of contact for all my vendors. I would communicate my thoughts to her and she worked with my vendors to make them possible. The weekend of my wedding Leslie and team were with us from the rehearsal on Friday through the luncheon on Sunday. The day of the wedding she made sure the guys and the girls were situated and in the proper locations all while making sure the logistics of the day were running smoothly. She and her team took care of any "hiccups" that happened during the day before they ever even got to me. When coffee ice cream was delivered for the ice cream bar instead of coffee oreo. Leslie and her team made time to stop at the ice cream store between the ceremony and reception to get me and my husband each an order of coffee oreo ice cream so that at least we had the correct flavor! It's the little things, like grabbing the correct ice cream, and the big things, like organizing all my vendors, invitations, transportation, and more, that Leslie and her team do that make working with them so amazing! I would recommend Leslie and the whole Wedding Belle's crew a thousand times over! Thank you so much Leslie and team for making my wedding the best day of my life!

I can't say enough good things about Leslie and her staff. They were easy to work with, professional, organized and helped us create a beautiful wedding. Leslie is very organized and very creative - a combination you don't always find! She listened to what we wanted and designed some beautiful and unique touches that made the wedding very personal and very special. During the weekend of the wedding, she and her staff were in charge and out of the way at the same time. They made sure all the details flowed and everyone had what they needed at all times. They are so experienced they know how things should flow and how to troubleshoot along the way. Leslie ran a fantastic rehearsal for us the night before the wedding which went a long way to alleviating everyone's nerves and made everything flow like clockwork during the real event. She was incredibly responsive to our questions along the way and held us to a reasonable timeline that made sure everything was buttoned up and there were no loose ends. I have had so many guests email, text or follow up with personal comments of how much they enjoyed the wedding. I heard more than once that "That was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to." and "The whole day was flawlessly run and made it so much fun for guests." More importantly, the bride and groom and both families felt it was just what they wanted and we were free to enjoy every moment of it - thanks to Leslie and her staff.

Hiring The Wedding Belle was the best decision we made. We truly got to enjoy our daughters wedding. Leslie and her team took care of all the details that would have been so distracting that day. Can't thank them enough.

We had Leslie from the Wedding Belle work with us as a day of planner and was so happy we did. She took so much pressure off me as the mother of the bride, starting with the rehearsal the night before through the entire night of the wedding. She went above and beyond the call of duty and kept us all moving the ceremony was right on time and we were all cool and calm thanks to Leslie. I would highly recommend her and her team.

I could go on for pages writing why booking the Wedding Belle for my wedding was the best decision I made throughout the entire planning process. I will try to keep it brief though! At the beginning of my planning, I couldn't believe how little I knew about planning a wedding and how complicating it actually can be. After my first meeting with the Wedding Belle, I finally felt at ease and stress free about my wedding. It's simple, they just GET IT. They not only made the process so incredibly simple for me, but they took my confused, pinterest over loaded mind and created a wedding that I could have only dreamed about before. And WOW, the vendors they helped us pick.... They were all perfect and ideal! We barely had to do research... We told them our style and they had lists of reputable vendors that matched our needs and budget. When the whole thing was said and done, my husband and I looked back and couldn't fathom how it would have all came to fruition without "The Belle's". There were so many small things they did that made or day flawless. Another thing that sticks out at me was when we were all enjoying our after party and the belles were taking care of breaking down our reception, carefully putting away the décor pieces, organizing everything so that we could enjoy our night. I couldn't believe it! It was the cherry on top. Thank you to the Wedding Belle for making our day perfect.
