Our Team
Shantelle Vera & Gayla Matos
We are a mother-daughter duo. Gayla Matos (right) founded Leave the Details to Me in 2010 and is certified with WPIC. Her years of training and experience have been passed along to, Shantelle Vera (left), who has assisted her throughout the years. I (Shantelle) have now become the Head Coordinator of this business.

Together, we have hosted, coordinated, and planned dozens of events. Our main day-of coordination has been for weddings; we love seeing brides & grooms have their dream day happen. In the last few years, we have expanded into non-profit fundraisers & corporate events. Our attention to detail and our mother-daughter friendship make for the perfect team!

We have a trusted team of assistants and fellow coordinators who work alongside us, along with many vendors who we highly recommend for any event!

We service Southern Ontario and beyond.

  • I'm speechless when I try to thank you for all your time, effort, guidance, support and so much more. We appreciate everything you've done for us leading up to the wedding day, and of course, the day of. You certainly made a dream wedding come true and without you both, I'm not quite sure how we would have execute such an amazing day and evening. Thank you!

  • I've had the pleasure of working with Gayla & Shantelle many times over the past several years. As a minister who has officiated hundreds and hundreds of wedding ceremonies, I am always relieved to know when a wedding coordinator will be on hand to help handle any last minute issues, help get the wedding party in order and assist with the flow of events. Whenever Gayla & Shantelle have been hired to work their magic, I know it will be a seamless and flawless event as they always have everything in order and under control. And the best part is, they are very friendly, warm and easygoing with just the right amount of assertiveness to get the job done!

  • Thank you so much for your terrific support for our daughter’s wedding this past September. Your organizational skills, personal touches and calming presence just added to a wonderful day and relieved so much stress for all of us. You had everything set up in advance and ensured the whole event ran smoothly from beginning to end. We had nothing to worry about and better yet, we had nothing to worry about. You made the day perfect! “Leave the Details to Me” is exactly what we did!!!

  • I was so happy to have Shantelle and Gayla to help organize my wedding! They were able to make sure everything was in place and everyone was where they were supposed to be. They made sure everything was running smoothly and we were on time. I got to enjoy my wedding instead of having to worry about what time everything was happening at or when to do certain things like speeches and the cake cutting. Thank you so much for making my day less stressful!
