What’s our story?

Ambiance Matchmaking was founded by Leslie Wardman and Taylor Wade. Leslie had been working for an international matchmaking agency for most of the 1990’s. It was a large company, 90% of applicants were accepted, and there wasn’t enough time or resources to dedicate to client searches. She thought there had to be a better way…

In 2002, Leslie partnered with Taylor and launched Ambiance Matchmaking with one simple goal: to offer a personalized, hands-on matchmaking experience. It would be a small boutique company and only a few applicants would be accepted at a time to ensure time, energy, and resources to dedicate to each client.

This founding value still holds true today. We accept 20 clients at a time to truly dedicate ourselves to finding each client’s life partner.

Who are our members?

We cater to CEOs, executives, founders, entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals, celebrities, and industry leaders varying in age, ethnicity, career paths and life passions, yet all seeking someone with whom to share their life. Our members are accomplished and highly educated, with 99% having college degrees and 70% having advanced degrees. We are very proud of our members!

Some people think that using a matchmaker shrinks the dating pool, but really the opposite is true.

We have been matchmaking for two decades, and in that time, we built extensive networks for connecting with quality singles in all parts of the world. It really opens a wide range of canals for finding that special person.
