About Courtney


Courtney Leigh Events may have officially commenced in 2024, but little did I know, it was in the works for many years. From planning events in college, to the beginning of my career with CMT Event Planning, and most recently as the Senior Events Manager with Waterman's, The Attic at Waterman's, Chix on the Beach, The Shack, and Festival on 8th, I have coordinated thousands of events ranging from 5 to 800 people. I am the Race Director for the Crush N' Run 5K and was the Assistant Tournament Director for the Mid Atlantic Rockfish Shootout. In my spare time, I have helped coordinate numerous friends’ weddings and friends of their friends’ weddings. The past 14 years have been consumed with a variety of events and it finally occurred to me that I should make it official! I am excited to welcome, Courtney Leigh Events!



Courtney Leigh Events offers a wide range of event management from high heels to running shoes to baby booties!

Pics & Kindness


There are not enough words to describe how amazing Courtney is! As a very detail oriented person, I wasn't sure if I would need a wedding planner or find one that was to the standard I wanted. However, after helping my Mother in Law with the rehearsal dinner and seeing her at my best friend's wedding, I KNEW she was the wedding coordinator I wanted. Her attention to detail and organization skills are beyond amazing. In addition, she oversaw every step of the wedding day process to make sure not only I, but my entire family could relax on this special day. She even planned an amazing exit and met us with a to-go box for us filled with extra food, cake, and drinks so we could continue our celebration. Courtney may have started as my wedding coordinator, but I now consider her one of my dear friends. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, you MUST get Courtney.

-Ashley & William, 2023

We could not be more grateful to have had Courtney as our wedding coordinator! From the beginning to end, working with Courtney was a dream. She is professional, organized, easy to communicate with, and clearly a master of her craft. Not to mention one of the kindest people you'll ever meet. 


She was incredibly helpful when it came to making schedules, knowing who needs to be where and when, general best practices when it comes to things like rehearsals, and also in managing communication with our vendors during the day. She is also known to go above and beyond to make sure everything is JUST right. She really helped make the whole wedding process very easy, and that's exactly what you want on your big day! We simply couldn't recommend her enough. 


In fact, I did refer her to my best friend who got engaged shortly after me. I was the Matron of Honor at this wedding that Courtney also coordinated. It was an awesome, stress-free wedding for both myself and the bride because Courtney was running things! 


Look no further, Courtney is simply the best!

I have worked with Courtney for several years planning events for my company. She is very attentive and always responds in a timely manner. She worked to accommodate our requests and even gave me suggestions if there were new food items on the menu. She really got to know our group and remembered what we liked or didn’t like from prior events and helped make adjustments based on what worked for us. Working with Courtney was always very easy and I looked forward to working with her since I knew she had our best interests and would make everything easy for us. I would highly recommend working with Courtney for planning any event.

-Corporate Client

Courtney was extremely professional and extremely easy to work with. She was very organized from the first time we met with her. She made all the catering decisions seamless and due to her pleasant demeanor, she made the planning process very enjoyable. Her coordination with our vendors and ensuring we had everything just right for our perfect day took away a lot of stress. I would highly recommend Courtney if you are looking for a true professional to help make all your dreams come true for your wedding day or special event. 

-Aimee & Roger, 2019

We adore Courtney and she is so wonderful to work with! She was our wedding coordinator in 2016 and not only did she make our day a dream come true, she became a dear friend! 


My husband and I were planning our wedding in VB while living in Florida, and as if wedding planning isn’t stressful enough, we chose a location four states away! I will say, a majority of the stress faded after meeting Courtney. She is personable, charismatic, and listens to understand - not just respond. For us, she heard what we were looking for and moved forward as if our event was her own, exceeding all of our expectations. Our friends are still talking about how epic our day was! 


Courtney values open, honest, and consistent communication, she understands the importance behind each detail that makes every event unique, and she has the expertise and outcome-driven mindset to power through any scenario. 


We feel so lucky to have not only met, but to have worked with, Courtney. Her attention to detail and compassion for each of her clients is unmatched. Any event coordinated by Courtney is going to be successful and unforgettable! 

-Leigh & Kevin, 2016
