THE WEDDING PLANNER: LESLIE SHORT


Founder and CEO of K.I.M. Media L.L.C., Leslie Short has facilitated everything from branding and marketing to public relations and advertising for clients, all the while creating award-winning events as well.


The Beginning: Short's career has included quite a few diverse paths, from globe-trotting dancer, producer and choreographer to FUBU advertising exec. She would eventually start K.I.M Media, but it took some convincing to finally add wedding planning to the roster.


“I would dress couples, help out friends with rehearsal dinners, serve as translator for destination weddings and things like that, but I just refused to accept the fact that I was actually planning them,” Short says with a laugh.
