  • For our wedding and reception I wanted things to be perfect to give my bride the absolute best day ever. Things went about as perfectly as they could have and it absolutely wouldn’t have been possible without the help of TLC. They were there every step of the way offering support, staff, or any other assistance we may have needed. Maile and Micheala’s expert eye for what looks good was of great assistance when we were piecing together our reception. While my then fiance's family was preparing the main dish, the kitchen at TLC expertly and deliciously made green beans, and cheesy potato casserole. Micheala helped Emily with various things ranging from specific advice as someone who has personally put together many weddings to helping with a simple “what looks good” question. Our day would not have been possible had it not been for the TLC staff. I will forever be grateful for their help and support creating our big day. They are amazing, hardworking, and dedicated people whose expertise, in my opinion, is unmatched.

  • The Leadership Center Staff, especially Micheala, helped provide the perfect place for my daughter's wedding. It was beautiful, and everyone was welcoming and encouraging.

  • When looking for someone to help with food, setting tables, and all the small details at the reception, I knew exactly who I needed to reach out to. Maile and Micheala at TLC were the perfect people to make sure everything ran smoothly and just how I wanted it. I felt like they got my vision and were able to carry it out exactly how I had it in my mind. I appreciated all their advice and would recommend them to anyone!

  • We are more than happy with our experience and everything The Leadership Center did to make our day perfect.
