Simone Lennon Events is a boutique special events company located in San Francisco that specializes in the planning and designing of unique and elegant affairs. Our company launched in 2010 and has since produced over seventy weddings and special events all over Northern California and the Central Coast. Our mission is to cultivate a partnership with our clients to ensure we create an experience that is memorable and a true reflection of their style, taste and values. We are perfectionists and we strive to provide a high level of customer service to each client we take on. In an effort to stay true to our hands on process, we limit the amount of events we produce each season. We know that having the right person plan your event is important to the overall client experience, so we ensure a thorough consultation and two-way interview is conducted prior to contracting our company for services.
