Meet Stephanie A.K.A. "SL"
If you haven't figured it out by now, Esselle is a play on my initials SL for Stephanie Le. Although, I prefer to be called Steph. I was born and raised in Hawaii by my Vietnamese parents who immigrated here in the late 80's early 90's. It was through my parents' hard work that I had the experience to grow up in paradise and be a product of their "American" dream.
I stayed in Hawaii my entire life but often took trips back to Vietnam and around Asia and Europe with my parents who love to travel. I'm a graduate of President William McKinley High School and the University of Hawaii, Manoa where I studied Travel Industry Management and earned my Bachelor of Science. I’ve worked in restaurants, hotels, and a private catering and events facility before venturing out to the crazy world of weddings.
I’m overly expressive, get excited about everything, and I wear my heart on my sleeve. I have a tendency to fall in love with all of my couples and become invested in their #relationshipgoals. It is an honor to be a small part of your love story. It gives me joy knowing that somewhere along the way, you placed your trust in me as your planner to help make your wedding dreams come true.
To me, this is more than a business deal cut between Bride and Planner. It is a meaningful connection fueled by a shared interest - to bring your wedding to life.
