make memories


How would it feel to celebrate your most special day in luxurious style and ease? 

Maybe you already have a vision in mind about how your perfect day could be. Or maybe you need help creating one from the ground up. Either way, how do you get that vision onto paper, into the hands of vendors, and executed to perfection on your special day? 

How do you create an elegant affair that will wow your guests and meet every expectation without also having to worry about keeping a timeline on track, or stressing out about details during the event? 

How can you create a wedding that is as momentous and beautiful as the love you feel for your partner, especially when you’ve never done this before and have no idea how to create the ideal layout, or pick the right vendors? 

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that not only would your wedding be designed to perfection but that you’d have someone in your corner, helping to make sure the event ran smoothly and allowing you to enjoy the moment? Someone who could help you negotiate with your vendors (while also navigating challenging family issues)? 

If you're nodding along with me, take a deep breath.

When you work with Brilliant Event Design

you come first.


Let me handle all the details while you soak up every moment of your most special day. 


And who am I?

Hi, I’m Leila Oberdorfer - head designer and planner here at Brilliant Event Design. When it comes to your wedding I believe you should be able to focus on you, your partner, and your treasured guests and leave the logistics to someone else. 

I’m a designer with a passion for creativity, but as much as I draw from my artistic right brain, you could say I’m brain ambidextrous and can draw from my analytical left brain when planning and problem solving (all while staying calm and composed.) Above all, I make sure the final designs are reflective of YOU - my clients. 


I believe that while planning and logistics can make or break an event, you shouldn’t be the one having to deal with vendors or time lines, or creating a floorplan (mine are computerized and to scale) when you’ve never done this before. I believe you should be the guest of honor and get to enjoy every minute of the day. Let me handle the event while you get to be carefree and fully engaged in the telling of your love story. 


how I work

Weddings are so much more than just an event. They are a celebration of joining two lives together. They are the culmination of your love and the expression of that love to your friends and family. They are a journey that combines two families in perfect polished style. That’s where I come in. Planning a wedding goes beyond choosing a color scheme and flower arrangements. Your wedding can be a story about who you are and the love you share with one another. My specialty is infusing weddings with the style and personality of my clients. 

I believe that even just the tiniest added details can create memories that you’ll treasure for a lifetime. In other words, I put YOU in your wedding (and your spouse to be too!). I love combining unexpected things, creating new styles instead of just following trends, and making sure that above all, your wedding is something you will cherish forever.

That’s why when you work with Brilliant Event Design

I do it all.

My Full Service and Full Service Plus packages are like rolling out a red carpet at your event. This is your time to get the design of your dreams without having to do all the work. 

Since I work personally with each client and they get my undivided attention for their special day I only take on one event per weekend and a limited number of events per year. My services are perfect for the couple who wants an extra special touch. When you work with me I will make sure you get the white glove treatment from start to finish. 


Of course, you don’t have to just take my word for it.

here’s what happy clients are saying after working with me


I currently offer two wedding planning packages (and am always happy to provide a custom quote if you wedding falls out of the scope of one of these packages). I enjoy planning all of life’s celebrations and do social and corporate events as well.
