"I thrive on creating the best experience for others

and making their event as memorable as possible."


Kara | Michelle Leo Events

Kara loves having a hand in planning and creating events that are beyond compare, whether it be a family member’s birthday, a themed party for friends, or for her wonderful MLE brides. 

Kara currently attends the University of Utah, where she is pursuing a BS in Hospitality Management with a certificate in Entrepreneurship. Having worked in customer service for many years, Kara learned how focus on creating the best experience for others and making the customer experience as memorable as possible.

Kara was born and raised in the beach town of Ventura, CA –  a true SoCal girl at heart, but she describes moving to Salt Lake City as a choice she will never regret (and neither will Team MLE). She loves experiencing the seasons Utah has to offer, and some of Kara’s favorite winter activities include sledding and snowboarding (or being wrapped up in her heated blanket). During the warmer months she loves to hike or go camping, though nothing beats a nice day out on the lake. 

Kara has fallen in love with the wedding side of the event industry and loves being constantly surrounded by the blissfulness and elegance these events have to offer. She loves to go above and beyond to make sure the people around her are genuinely satisfied, and planning weddings provides her the perfect opportunity to bring this passion to life.
