About Us

Living that planner life

Where do we go?

The LHE team plans weddings and social events anywhere our clients dream of celebrating in the continental US! We love traveling and our favorite thing is welcoming destination clients to our beautiful home state of Colorado to celebrate the most important thing on earth... love. 


What do we do?

We gladly absorb the stress that comes along with planning a major life event and filter out all the things that can detract from the joy of a celebration. We deliver understated luxury to every event. In everything we do we lead with light, positivity, and a refinement that is never pretentious.


Why do we do it?

As a team, we seek out ways to celebrate the good in the world, put a spotlight on what matters most, uplift others, and give back. This year, in addition to celebrating your biggest moments., we will be sending our love to the World Wildlife Warriors.

Our team


Owner, Lead Planner & Creative Director

Hi! My name is Ileen, but my friends call me Lina. It's been about a decade since I first stepped into the world of events. I still cry at every wedding at least once. My soul is still filled by the little moments that you decide to let me be a part of. From first kisses to yelling surprise, to hearing just how much we raised for a cause, I'm fueled by the love and the energy of a celebration.  


You should know that like most planners I am a precisionist but you should also know that I can be a little bit silly and sometimes a little nerdy...okay a lot of the time. I am a lifelong learner. I'm addicted to shoes, animals, thunderstorms, carbs, and books #tenpointsforgryffindor. I'm very much an empath which explains the tears. I'm also a hopeless romantic who believes in love above all things. In my mind love is the most powerful and beautiful force in the universe. I'm a boy mom, a fur mom, a wife, and a professional dream maker. I can't wait to meet you and throw you one heck of a party! 




Hello! My name is Shelby. My favorite part of life is to enjoy watching people be happy, so why not help those people be happy on one of the best days of their lives! I first met Lina when planning my own wedding and soon after realized that I live for moments of sweet love and affection. Younger Ranch is where my wedding was held, and I enjoy giving couples the same feeling I had on my special day. I am extremely passionate about yours and your significant others' experience. I conduct myself with professionalism, but I also ensure that you are continuing to laugh and smile on your big day. 

A few other things you should know about me are, that I love dogs, especially my two wonderful and silly corgis. I channel my creativity to craft anything, if I have a vision, I make it come to life. I can’t wait to make your dream a reality.



Senior Event Planner

Hello! My name is Jaime!! Details, design, and dreams have always been my passions. With seven years in the professional sports industry (NBA, NHL, NLL, MLS) coordinating events, ten years of experience in wedding planning, and over a decade of experience in planning non-profit and private events, my goal is to remove the stress, make the process fun and the event you will fondly remember. 


My focus is on your vision and making sure the work that is put in behind the scenes creates the day of your dreams. I strive to bring together the details and presentation of any event, making your dreams my mission and your design my goal. My heart looks forward to creating an amazing event that you will remember for years to come.


When not helping you create your dream day or event, you can find me exploring our beautiful state with my husband, three kids, and a great dane puppy. enjoying coaching others to a healthier lifestyle and a good sweat sesh in my basement.



Operations & Venue Supervisor

Hello! I'm Shannon! If you know me personally, you might call me Martha! Hosing is truly my gift! I love making all of our clients feel welcomed and cared for no matter what venue we are hosting in! I treat each and every event like you are in my own home!


I'm known for my ability to piece things together to make something spectacular! Being a mom of three and a wife to a Marine, flexibility is key! Born in Alaska, I've learned that epic disasters are real and if you're clever, you can make just about anything work! I am as old fashioned as they come and I truly embrace my millennial brain! Equipped with a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Washington, an ACE certified personal trainer and health coach, and more life experience than most should probably have at my age, there just isn't much that surprises me that I can't relate with or adjust to! When I'm not hosting memorable celebrations, I'm dreaming up new business ventures and spreading sunshine one balloon creation at a time as the owner of luxury balloon company Hello Sunshine Creatives. I look forward to hosting your next event at your dream venue or in the quaintness of your own home!




Hi! I’m Lauren! As a native to Colorado, my heart is a melting pot of love for the mountains and city lights. For as long as I can remember, I have had a love for weddings. Since I’ve been a little girl, I always knew I wanted to be a wedding planner. Being the hopeless romantic I am; I love, love. After earning my degree in communications from the University of Colorado, I entered the wedding world to let my passions run free. 

I am a creative soul who has a soft spot for modern designs with a whimsical touch yet admire everything in between. I’m in love with bringing to life new ideas; but my favorite is bringing my clients’ dreams to life. Nothing fills my heart more than feeling the warmth in the air as everyone comes together to celebrate the unique bond a couple has. I’m excited to really get to know my couples and what makes them who they are. Their story. Their personalities. Their love for one another. Ultimately curating a day that represents them and everything they ever wanted. 




Hello! I’m Brandon! A native from Kansas City, Missouri, an avid coffee drinker, with an eye for everything that sparkles and shines. 

Wedding planning has always been a passion of mine, I remember being young and being asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, The answer was always a designer.  Seeing David Tutera and Randy Fenoli on the big screen I knew that would be me. I set off to the University of Central Missouri where I gained a scholarship to cheer for the Mules, which then earned me a BA in Sociology.


From planning with my fraternity Alpha Tau Omega’s Social and Formal events to interning with different wedding planning companies in the Midwest helping me create an eye for design. Nothing makes me happier than a couple planning their big day!
