"Links We Love Interview" Veils & Fairytales


Name:  Leslie Velazquez, Owner, Lead Coordinator/Planner
             Melissa Rodriguez, Coordinator Assistant (and sister)

Business Name: Veils and Fairytales Weddings & Events

1. Why did you start your business??

I love to plan and host parties of all types, including holiday parties, birthday parties, I was even allowed a little bit of a say on my own bridal shower!  But it was planning my own wedding that started it all (I got married in 2008).  I completely enjoyed the planning of my own wedding, although it was stressful, hectic and kept me extremely busy, I really enjoyed it!  Everyone kept saying I had a knack for it; being that I am somewhat of a perfectionist and need to stay and keep everything organized, the planning was easy for me!  So, this is where it all started. The wedding coordinator that I hired for my own wedding later offered me a part-time job assisting her and this is where the love for it grew.  She ended up moving up north and took her business with her and this is when I decided to venture on my own and see if I could do it.  I started my business in 2009 and it started with a bang!  I did more weddings on my own than I could have ever imagined in my first year!  The passion and love for assisting brides is what keeps me doing it and is so rewarding.  I love making their fairy tale come true!

2. Is there anything you want your clients to know about you and your business?

I started my business on my own and my sister jumped on board to assist me with all events almost immediately.  The both of us work hand-in-hand very well.  We love to do this and make a great and efficient team.  Together we make the Veils and Fairytales lead team.  We also have other girls on hand if we need that extra help.

Our main focus is wedding planning, but we definitely can assist you with coordination of any other type of party or special occasion, including (for the guys) “popping” the question!  See below in ‘what services we provide’ for more info.

For the brides out there, please, please hire at the least a day-of coordinator (even if it’s not me!) for your wedding day.  If you are planning your own wedding, I’m sure you worked hard preparing all the little details such as favors, photos, DIY décor, and other such items.  Please note your venue coordinator doesn’t necessarily set up these items for you.  And you don’t want to rely on family or friends to do this for you either (you want them to enjoy the day; they are of course your GUESTS!). This is where my team and I come in.  I am naturally very meticulous about things in my personal life, I will definitely be meticulous with your details and decor on your wedding day (this is why you would hire me anyway, right?!).  I will make sure that everything is placed according to your preferences or just make everything look fabulous!  No detail will go missed and I make sure that all the hired vendors are there and doing the job you hired them for.  My team and I work hard to make sure everything goes smoothly and you get to completely enjoy your special day.

3. What kind of services do you provide?

I offer both wedding as well as event planning services.  For wedding planning, I offer 3 packages: full-service planning, month-of planning and day-of coordination.  These packages can also be used for quinceanera parties. Please visit my website (link below) for details of what each package offers as well as pricing information.

For event planning, I offer services for all other events other than weddings or quinceaneras, such as bridal or baby showers, (milestone) birthday parties, anniversary, etc.  Please visit my flickr page (link below) for photos of both bridal shower and anniversary parties I have done.

Guys, are you ‘popping’ the question soon??  Let us help you with that special surprise for your girlfriend! However you plan to do it, we can help take it a step further and make it a truly special and memorable occasion!  Call or email us for unique ideas and how we can help you.

Last, but not least, I also offer candy/dessert buffet services.  We provide all glassware and jars, the candy and/or desserts, set up & clean up, favor bags and décor for the table.  Please visit our candy buffet website for detailed information.  If you’re interested, email us for a free quote!

4. What funny story or memorable one have you had since you had your business?

I have special memories about each wedding and/or event I have done. Each bride (and their husbands-to-be and families) is unique and I have developed fabulous relationships with each.  I even still keep in touch with a few!  It’s important to be able to build not only a business relationship, but a wonderful friendship with each of our clients.  Each of our clients is treated with the utmost respect and professionalism.

During the few months of her planning stage(s), I become almost like the bride’s best friend.  She is in fact intrusting me to assist her with planning one of the most important days of her life!  And I am truly privileged and honored to be a part of their special day. 

Won’t you allow us to make your wedding a fairy tale dream come true?  Give me a call or visit my website for more information.
