My name is Sharron Banks, founder and lead planner of LeShae Events. I fell in love with weddings while planning my own many years ago. Since then, I've helped create many, many dream weddings. Helping brides to make their wedding day be the happiest day of their lives is a passin for me. I love, love seeing beaming smiles of brides as they walk down the aisle, cut their cake, take the floor for their first dance as well as the final farewell before taking off for the honeymoon.

I've always love event planning. I think its the small details and level of excellence that drives me. I started my corporate event planning with a multicultural Public Relations firm in Chicago. I've had the pleasure of coordinating events for several major companies and celebrities including - Lawry's Foods with a signature program called "Cooking Up Culture" with legendary restauranteur B. Smith, Altria Group with a six-city tour called "Know Your Money" with Earvin "Magic" Johnson and the Miller Urban Entreprenuers national business plan competition featuring Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Sister Souljah as guests speakers along with a networking reception with R&B music bands featuring Kem, Kindred and Raphael Saadiq. I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Business Management and a MBA in Human Resources Management.

"My husband and I would like to sincerely thank Sharron Banks of LeShae Events for everything she did to make our wedding the best day of our lives! From the very first contact, we knew that LeShae Events was the company that would best suit our needs. Sharron took the time to speak with me and Aaron without limits, never imposing time constraints or making us feel rushed. She was and is the most pleasant person to speak to; she portrays empathy, love, and enthusiasm and gives so much care to her clients that you never doubt that your happiness is her first priority. Sharron is a very classy, elegant, and unique woman who brings all of her many talents and business savvy (acquired in her very accomplished corporate career) to the wedding planning process. She was not only my wedding planner, but also my friend and confidant who helped guide and calm me through this very overwhelming process. She made stressful situations and apprehensive moments lighter and always knew how to help me focus on the bright side of things. She participated in every key meeting and advised us on all of the critical elements to ensure that we were making informed decisions and getting the best options and pricing. From advising our heartfelt, emotional ceremony, to organizing musicians, soloists, flowers, and a professional hair and make-up artist, she poured her heart and soul into every tiny detail. Sharron and her staff orchestrated our wedding day activities with flawless execution; the entire day was perfectly seamless for my husband and me and all of our guests. We consider ourselves blessed to have had the privilege of working with someone who translated our vision with such style, grace and professionalism. We cannot say enough about the services provided by LeShae Events for our wedding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your dedication and care!"
