If you are looking for a wedding planner, look NO further. Johanna and her team made my wedding experience a dream come true. We hired Johanna for month of co-ordination. I was originally hesitant, as I thought I wouldn't need a wedding planner as our venue took care of most of the major details. But with the advice of past brides, I decided to move forward with Johanna - and must I say, THANK GOD I did. I did not know how many minor details go into planning such a big day. Johanna and her team were so detailed and beyond helpful on the day of. I truly wouldn't have been able to enjoy my day as much as I did without them. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Johanna is phenomenal! She planned and executed every detail of our wedding and the day could not have been more perfect! The whole day ran so smoothly and her enthusiasm / excitement throughout the planning process was amazing. She listened to our vision and used her creativity, recommendations and relationships to make it all happen!

Johanna and her assistant Ashley were the sole reason that our day went off without a hitch!
Leading up to our wedding, Johanna was so amazing at helping us lay out the details and finalize with our vendors. She was so organized and took all of the visions we had and made them into a reality even better than we envisioned.
When the rental company sent us a lovely array of brown napkins with hints of lipstick pink instead of the chic champagne colour we had ordered, Johanna was quick to fix the issue and re order napkins from a trusted source to ensure that our tables looked beautiful (and matched!!).
In all seriousness, Johanna went above and beyond for us from the beginning. She spent countless hours of her time working on preparing everything for our big day and throughout the day as well. She left no details untouched and outdid herself to the very end.
If you want someone who you can trust, who will truly have your back and who easily becomes not only a coordinator but a friend, your search is over.
Johanna, you rock! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Johanna and her team exceeded even our greatest expectations on the most memorable day of our lives. Both my partner and I come from a hospitality background and notice the big and little things, Johanna is everything she promotes - she worked with us , worked in our budget and was always our biggest advocate. We had no stress dealing with vendors or set up pre, day of or post whatsoever. I actually enjoyed my wedding day! From what I have witnessed and heard from friends and coworkers... thats not always the case. I recommend Johanna and her team for any event needs, she is a miracle worker!

If you are looking for a dedicated wedding planner who will make you feel like you are her only client and top priority, your search is over. Johanna worked with us to plan our perfect day and delivered it exceeding all of our expectations. She superbly handled a few hitches thrown in by the venue and managed everything on the ground in Toronto as my husband and I are based in London, England. In particular Johanna stands out for her incredible personal attention to every detail and her consummate professionalism. Johanna also has a great creative mind and was very forthcoming with suggestions and guidance in every aspect from styling our tables to finalizing our contracts all whilst taking into account our personal tastes and preferences.
There truly are not enough wonderful things to say about Johanna, she took our dreams and made them into a beautiful reality. I had personally never imagined working with a wedding planner as my husband and I are both incredibly organized and detail oriented. I had thought that the wedding coordinator that our venue contracted to us along with the help from our family and friends would be sufficient support. Planning from overseas was proving to be much more difficult than we'd ever imagined and I would urge any one considering whether or not they need a wedding coordinator to go with Johanna! Once we had Johanna on our side everything changed. The dedication and time she devoted to us (over countless Skype calls!) was unbelievable. I can not stress enough to any couple embarking on their planning process: do yourselves a massive favour and invest in Johanna Leigh Wedding & Events from the first step. Make her your first call and ensure the entire process from proposal to I do is as stress free as possible.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE Johanna!
I had the pleasure of working with Johanna on a recent corporate event and I cannot say enough about what a positive experience it was! Johanna had designed a stunning Casino Royale themed evening with several moving parts. With only a small window of time to set up, she managed multiple vendors, communicated clearly with each of us, and was overall a delightful person to work with throughout the entire event: she was in control, focused, positive, and upbeat. From a "behind the scenes" perspective, I work with a lot of event planners, but Johanna clearly stood out to me. I was extremely impressed with her level of organization, crystal clear communication, and eye for detail. Bonus, she is such a LOVELY person! I would definitely recommend her for any event!
