Hello, there! My name is Antoinette Yelenic, but you'll hear just about everyone call me Toni. I am a Partner, Principal Planner + Lead Coordinator at A & L Events. About seven years ago, I began my journey in the wedding world assisting a local wedding planner near my university. I instantly fell in love with the fast-paced industry, which aligned perfectly with my collegiate studies of Marketing + Communications/Event Planning; I knew I had found a special calling.
As a true ‘lover of love’, I am passionate about working with vendors to plan a celebration that allows complete happiness, enjoyment and content on behalf of our couples and clients. At A & L Events, I will be your go-to gal for all things planning, coordination and logistics - working with our full service clients to our coordination clients on achieving the event of their dreams. I like to consider myself a game-plan guru, aiming to handle my position with positivity and poise no matter what comes my way. The warmth and fulfillment I feel at the end of a long wedding or event day is something I can honestly say that I will never grow tired of; it's rewarding beyond measure.
Outside of A & L Events, I work for an outdoor advertising company and love my career and community there. Some of my favorite things to do are to spend time with my loving (& loud) Italian family, create custom cupcake creations, and find the best restaurants in the burgh' -- give me allll the pasta + red wine! The people person in me enjoys volunteering with different organizations which allows me to give back some of the joy that others bring to my life. I want to impact people's lives #forgood and what better way to do that than connecting with you and learning your story so that I can bring your wedding or event vision to fruition. I look forward to our upcoming season and feel extremely blessed to be a part of wonderful weddings to come!
