Leslie resides between Visalia and St. Helena, CA and truly loves working the two extremes of California. She started her production and planning company LOM Productions in the non-profit sector creatively designing and planning annual events and parties. Leslie helped raise over $3 million for various projects and organizations throughout California including those for The Boys and Girls Club, CASA, The Creative Center and Valley Center for the Blind.
In 2009, when the economy took a drastic turn, the free flowing funds of the non-profit world subsided. Instead of retreating, Leslie saw it as the perfect time to start offering her expertise, creating beautiful experiences, not just to businesses but also for individuals. As with everything she does she devoted herself full time and went full speed ahead. Local families and couples were quickly recognizing that most of the outdoor events that they had attended through the years was a product of Leslie’s handy-work and creativity. Guests realized that these outdoor experiences were seamlessly created, woven together and not confined to one predictable and often restricted space.
“It became apparent at some point in the process that outdoor space was my passion and heart. My love for people, diversity and culture is what propelled me into the wedding industry and what keeps me here working with couples from all over the country. There is not one type of client that I serve, not one venue that I work or one theme that is consistently reproduced. What sets us apart when we work with our clients; it is more the vibe that is given when we work together, for me that is where the creative energy is truly allowed to grow.” - Leslie
