Your story is what you have, what you will always have.
Meet our Lead Storyteller, Judy Le.
Judy is adventurous, free-spirited, and is continually seeking beauty in everything around her. She actively gives back to her community and has a huge heart for nonprofit work.
You can often find Judy binge watching Friends or The Office while working on events and crafting in an oversized t-shirt and a messy bun until 4am. The only thing she can cook confidently is ramen cups and she is a hoarder (of many things). She auditions for The Voice in the shower, and is obsessed with her Shiba Inu mix and mini Schnauzer.
She's not your typical planner- she's a storyteller.
Judy loves stories. She loves to share her adventures, the funny things that happen to her daily and bringing happiness to others. She loves hearing others' stories; their history, their aspirations, and what makes them unique. With a desire for planning memorable events and storytelling, came Your Story Events.
The idea behind Your Story Events is to connect with our clients through the power of storytelling. We are invested in learning about our clients to be able to capture and embody their personalities and vision to create a unique and memorable experience.
Everybody has a story....what's yours?
Make each day your masterpiece.

It's the little things in life
that matters most.
Meet our storyteller, Annie Lee.
Annie is caring, sentimental, and appreciates all the little things in life. Once you get to know her, you will see one of her most admirable qualities is her huge heart to love and support all those around her.
Born and raised in Boston, MA, she has met a lot of exceptional friends, including Judy where they both attended college together at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Their nature in creativity and keen eye to detail has been the glue of their friendship for more than 10+ years.
As a hopeless romantic and a lover of animals, kids and magical stories, Annie loves using her creative side to help bring visions to reality for her clients. She is a perfectionist that believes even the smallest of details matter.
Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

Meet our storyteller, Vanessa Rivera.
Born and raised in Orlando, FL, Vanessa is a proud UCF alumni
(Go Knights!). Her creativity originates from her college days in an internship at a local hospital when she would dream up fun, clever ways to entertain children. She now is a House Manager for one of the three Ronald McDonald Houses here in Central Florida. There she provides hospitality through comfort and care to the families, which also translates to her clients working with YSE.
She is a hard worker who likes to give her all at any task that comes her way, especially when it comes to event day. The preparation that goes into an event is the most inspiring for her. In the words of one of her favorite artists, Vincent Van Gogh,”Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
