Nina Leis discovered her passion and talent for event planning in 2001 when she began planning events for her local high school. A few years later, at the University of Texas, Austin, where she received her BS in Public Relations, Nina founded a womens social/service organization for which she planned dozens of unique events each year.
Upon graduating, Nina joined the Los Angeles office of Bain and Company, Inc, a global strategy consulting firm. Over the next few years, Nina was exposed to and worked with a variety of different Fortune 500 companies in industries ranging from Media and Entertainment to Consumer Products to High Tech. Given her high positive energy, fun personality and meticulous attention to detail, her co-workers soon began delegating to her the planning of all case-team events in addition to her normal consulting job. When she transferred to the San Francisco Bay Area, her reputation for planning awesome case team events preceded her and she was designated the title of “Fun Czar” on each of her cases. As her final assignment with Bain, Nina was asked to co-lead the planning for the office’s summer offsite in Napa Valley, California.
After getting engaged in 2008 and consuming everything related to events and weddings, Nina decided it was time to seriously explore event planning as a career. She started working with Equal Access International, a communications for social change non-profit in San Francisco, to plan its first large-scale charity event. A bit to her surprise, a lot of the skills she had gained working in management consulting - process and project management, organizational skills, careful consideration of finances and working closely with others - were also applicable to event planning and her passion for event planning quickly became more than just a hobby. In 2009, Leis Events (pronounced L-A-C-E) was founded to help busy people create the event of their dreams and enjoy each and every moment of the big day.

"THANK YOU...for your incredible attention to all the details of Erin and Neel's wedding last Saturday. I can't tell you how many times I heard someone say, "Ask Nina" when there was a question about any of the dozens of moving parts involved in a destination wedding. You really were remarkable, and we appreciate your efficiency, graciousness, and kindness. I think Erin and Neel would say they had the wedding of their dreams, and you played a VERY big role in making that happen. Thank you again." -Lee Kucera, Mother of the Bride (Kucera/Murarka Wedding, October 16th, 2010)
"Nina Leis was a wonderful compliment to my wedding year. From the engagement on, she offered kind recommendations, knowledgeable ideas and the personal touch in helping me plan my wedding. Nina is truly a professional event planner who will make any one's big day better merely from her presence. She is a caring young lady who makes you feel like your event is the most important thing in the world. She knows when to offer advice, when to listen and how to use your budget to the best of it's ability. Budgeting can be a very stressful area of planning a big event and Nina knows how to make it all work. Having Leis Events in charge of my wedding made the day flow smoothly and without stress. I would not change one thing about my wedding day, and I highly recommend Leis Events for your next party. Leis Events is the reason I married my man without a worry in my head." -Sondra Padlo, Married May 30th, 2010
"The best thing I did when planing this wedding was to hire you. You were so wonderful, I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I am for all your help. You were very professional, and yet I felt I was talking to a friend. My family loved you in the short time they met you. I was able to relax and enjoy my family and Ron's family during the week before the wedding. The day of the wedding, as soon as I saw you there, I relaxed because I knew you were going to be on top of everything. You allowed me to enjoy every moment and every detail of this wonderful day! You made the difference between an stressful and crazy time and a wonderful time filled with positive memories Ron and I will never forget! Thanks you so much for all you did. You took care of the big things but also all the little details! Always with a smile on your face and a wonderful attitude. I know you are going to be so successful in your business because you can tell you do it with love....and it shows! Again....THANKS!!!!!" -Cecilia and Ron, Married December 31, 2009
