In 2016 at my aunt’s wedding, I was standing behind a rock cueing the bridal party to proceed when it hit me: there was no going back. I had stumbled into the world of wedding planning and fallen in love.

After helping family and friends with their wedding and then DIYing my own, the passion for wedding planning blossomed into a business.   

Starting Live Loved Events has introduced us to couples from across California that needed a little support to create the day of their dreams. From the craziness of COVID to the sweetness of first dances, Live Loved Events is here for our couples and clients each step of the way. We’ve had the pleasure of working on weddings, both big and small. From the micro weddings to the beach weddings, Live Loved Events has helped couples across Southern California soak up their big day.

Our business started to support our family on their biggest day and now we’re here to support yours. It’s our role to sweat the small stuff, cross the t’s and dot the i’s so that your big day is spent with those you love the most.

When we work with our couples and clients, we never lose sight of our goal: to ease up the pressure so that families can be present.

The Live Loved Team

Creative Director, Owner & Lead Planner 

Jacqueline Leslie

Raquel is a mom of four girls (the oldest being Jacqueline ;)) and has been married to her middle school crush for 27 years. She has worked as a special project manager in the corporate world for 25 years. She brings the wisdom, business expertise and project management to this team.

She is a proud (young) grandma of three! When she isn’t project managing, she will likely be enjoying time with her family and working on new DIY projects around the house. You want a venue mock up? She’s your gal!

When she hears a price, her brain will automatically start thinking how can I get this done on my own?

She thrives on coffee runs and energy drinks throughout the day!
