Michelle Cousins | Michelle Leo Events

A heartfelt connection is a powerful thing .... A native to Utah, I grew up in a small town surrounded by some pretty amazing people who helped me develop a lasting appreciation for life’s defining moments. They also helped me create many of the memories I cherish today. I learned at a very early age that I value things like gathering together with family on Sunday afternoons to chat about the week as we devoured Mom’s delicious dinners and Grandma’s homemade brownies. As an adult, I relish in the friendships and connections I developed years ago that carried me through the carefree years, supported me in the growing years and continue to accompany me in the tears and laughter of everyday living.  Staying connected to the people I love fuels my energy and zest for life.

Today, I still find comfort in the little things such as colorful throw pillows in cozy spaces, big hugs, handwritten notes, and the “just because” phone calls that remind me I’m surrounded by people I thoroughly love and adore. And through it all, I find sheer joy in owning a company where our highest priority is helping our clients design, plan and enjoy life’s most celebrated events. At Michelle Leo Events, we feel so privileged to have the opportunity to meet and connect with wonderful people and assist them while they prepare for life’s many joyous occasions. We do more than simply plan events; we participate in connecting life's moments to lasting memories our clients will cherish for a lifetime.

Throughout my career as an event planner and designer, I have had the opportunity to connect with people and to produce events all over the world. Each unique experience has contributed to the way I see and connect with our clients both near and far. The Michelle Leo Events team recognizes and understands that each client provides us with an opportunity to learn, grow and connect on a much deeper, more intimate level. I truly believe our ability to connect with our clients is part of what contributes to the successful composition of our event designs and the award-winning experiences we create. We look forward to creating a heartfelt connection with you and helping you celebrate life's most memorable events!
