Living that planner life

The LHE team plans and coordinates weddings and social events all across Colorado and anywhere our clients dream of celebrating! We love traveling and welcoming destination clients to our beautiful home state to celebrate the most important thing on earth... love. We thrive on managing details so that our couples can focus on what really matters and enjoy every moment of their event. 


As a team, we seek out ways to celebrate the good in the world, uplift others and give back!  This year we will be sending our love to the World Wildlife Warriors.




Owner & Lead Planner

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'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 hell of a party! 



Senior Event Planner

Details, design, and dreams have always been my passions. With seven years in the professional sports industry (NBA, NHL, NLL, MLS) coordinating events, nine 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 and make the process fun and the event you will fondly remember. From birthdays and baby showers to weddings and corporate events, I have always had a talent for bringing together the details and presentation of any event. Making your dreams my mission and your design my goal, I strive to throw in a little fun while doing it! I graduated from the University of Colorado – Boulder with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business with a Marketing emphasis and certificate of entrepreneurship. 




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.

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.
