Meet The Bella Baxter Team: Leslie Carter
September 8, 2020

Hello, Hello!

My name is Leslie Carter! I am from Little Rock, Arkansas born & raised. As crazy as this sounds, I am actually a quadruplet! I have two sisters & one brother and we are all 25 years old. I know it’s pretty crazy, but it’s just my everyday normal. I have the sweetest & best dog ever. I have a Yorkshire Terrier named Jessie. She’s never met a stranger and will attack you with kisses.


I graduated from Little Rock Central High School in 2014. I then attended the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville for two years. I transferred to University of Arkansas at Pulaski Tech where I finished and earned my degree in Hospitality Management.

Fun Fact:

While I was at the U of A in Fayetteville, I was Pork Chop the Arkansas Razorback Mascot! Truly an unforgettable & THE most exciting experience of my life. I attended pretty much every sporting event as well as volunteer & university events. I was super hot & sweaty, but it was all totally worth it.

Favorite parts of being Pork Chop:

-Riding Tusk Bus at the beginning of every home football game

-Crowd Surfing (scary but truly unforgettable)

-Interacting & messing with fans

-My mascot & spirit squad family

My Hobbies:

I love to be outdoors in the Natural State of Arkansas (when it’s not insanely hot). I also love sports; whether it’s playing them or watching them. My favorites are football, golf, gymnastics, and baseball. I’m super competitive, so I also love to play (I mean win) board & cards games.  I also love to read and watch movies & TV shows. My guilty pleasure: The Bachelor & Bachelorette.

My Path to BBSE:

I reached out to Katherine during the summer of 2018. I was itching to gain experience & learn more about the wedding and event industry. I then started on as an event assistant in November 2018. In September 2019, I transitioned into a more permanent & involved role with BBSE. I am an event and project coordinator for BBSE or aka “Katherine’s Mini-Me.” I’ve loved every minute of working with Katherine & the BBSE team! We have created some beautiful magic & I can’t wait to see what’s yet to come.

My Favorite Part of a Wedding:

Definitely when the bride walks down the aisle. We’ve been working & planning for this day, this moment, and it’s finally here. This is why we’re here; our beautiful couple is finally getting married. Our Elle Woods “We did it” moment!

Wedding Planners vs Wedding Coordinators

Wedding Planners vs Wedding Coordinators

Planning your wedding can be exciting, but also stressful. One thing you can do to help with your stress load is hire a wedding coordinator or wedding planner. You might ask, “are those not the same thing?” Nope! They are both two entirely different wedding professionals. We get this question a lot when speaking with potential clients. We want the best fit for you and your wedding. You may only need a coordinator, or you may want a fully involved wedding planner. Let’s go into what each title does when working with you and your wedding.
