Seen & Heard

Leslie gave my daughter the wedding of her dreams - it was a magical time filled with excitement, joy and love – in large part due to her and her wonderful ways. Her consummate professionalism, knowledge of and access to all the best sources, detailed planning skills, and fantastic ideas for execution made planning our wedding an enjoyable family experience. One always hears about how stressful planning a wedding is – especially when you don’t live in the city where the wedding is being held – but she kept us calm and happy throughout the whole process! We will carry the memories from those happy days with us for the rest of our lives.

Leslie Mastin is the ultimate event planner. She is calm in a storm, detailed, organized and unfazed when faced with a challenge. She also has great taste and understand good value for the dollar. Lucky you who hires Leslie.

Leslie’s organization, attention to detail and work ethic were very much appreciated. She dealt with all the obstacles - anticipated and unforeseen - and made our lives much easier. The night ran without a hitch….and we were able to have a great time as well.

Susan and Morris Mark

It was a pleasure working with you. I appreciate very much your adherence to my wishes including our budget. I felt you made excellent suggestions concerning choices of music, decor, theme, and timeline. You respected my wishes and never made us feel that you were not on our team. The results exceeded our expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed our collaboration. If I have another opportunity I will certainly use you again.

We had the great fortune of having Leslie come into our lives when we decided to have a formal wedding celebrating 10 years of being together as partners. We had interviewed other planners but she stood out, and there was no question in our minds that she was “the one”. She was excited for us, enthusiastic, had great creative (and uncommon) ideas to make our wedding an event to remember. Her network of talented experts and contacts were first class and mirrored the “can-do” attitude – if we wanted something unusual, there was never a no but how we can do it. Our marriage was not just our special event – She made it her special event! Whether it’s a marriage, a special anniversary or an important corporate event, consider Leslie as that person who will make sure she cares about its success as much as you do. You will not regret it.

Alain and Albert

I was so grateful for Leslie’s creativity, patience and perseverance. I was so impressed by the caliber and variety or professionals she sought to provide for the party – and by the consistently fantastic outcomes of her events – we always hear from our friends how fantastic and fun our parties are! She makes the whole process fun – her thoughtfulness always makes the difficult decisions and problems seem a whole lot smaller. My family and I appreciate the time she takes to listen to what we want, adding her own expertise and pulling together the always-incredible finished product!

To all future brides and grooms: There aren’t words that can truly capture the essence of Leslie, except there isn’t anything that can rattle her – and there wasn’t any point throughout the whole process where either one of us felt like we weren’t in the most capable and trustworthy hands. From day one, Leslie’s excitement about our idea (turning the Pierre Hotel into a winter wonderland) drove her to exceed even our highest expectations of what not only she can do, but what our end result was going to be. Leslie is the quintessential wedding planner and when Webster’s comes out with their new edition, Leslie should be included in the definition of one. Most importantly, she isn’t there just to organize an event, she is there to make sure your wedding is the most special day of your life – and in some crazy way it feels as though it is for her too!

Arielle and Ian Madover

We have collaborated with Leslie on a number of successful events over the years, from dinner dances for several hundred guests to intimate, elegant affairs for 40 guests. Leslie’s ability to function as a savvy and candid “thought partner” and also to execute our vision flawlessly makes her one of my most valued colleagues.

Merck & Co.

After 35 years in the Hospitality industry, I am asked to look back on someone that influenced my career. While there are many who helped shape my management style, Leslie Mastin is certainly someone I take my strength from. We spent 10 years together, steering the ship at The Grand Hyatt New York, and the synergy that we were able to develop with a team of ten professionals was unique to this day. Leslie's ability to be available to both clients and colleagues is a quality I strive to maintain in my business life. It isn't every day that you find a person so selfless, so caring and present to others. These are rare qualities that make Leslie Mastin so special.

Having Leslie Mastin plan your destination wedding is truly a bride’s dream come true! Leslie is one of the most talented, detailed and creative planners we have had the pleasure to work with. The knowledge and years of experience she embodies is unparalleled. We absolutely love having Leslie as a Breakers Partner!

A waterfall of Champagne pouring over Russian black caviar marked the start of the cocktail hour that followed the ceremony. Ice sculptures containing floral arrangements decorated the room, and live musicians enriched the merriment of the occasion.

Both the color scheme and the décor changed from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and reception, morphing from blushes and ivories to bold purples and hot pinks. The ceremony design was modern, while the reception was ornate and old-world.

Leslie exceeded every expectation for the wedding of our dreams. Planning a wedding is an enormous amount of work and seeing that I was living in London at the time – and planning a wedding of three days of events in the Bahamas – added another layer of complexity. Apart from having done a wedding […]

I am extremely grateful to you for the tremendous job you did planning my daughter’s wedding. Creating a wedding for over 370 guests at Pier 60, Chelsea Piers was an incredible challenge, especially since I was working full-time up until the last day, and the bride and groom were also insanely busy. Throughout the process, […]
