    I initially started out thinking I would not need a coordinator or designer for my wedding. I am so glad I was convinced otherwise and was referred to Elana Walker Events! My day would have been a stressful disaster without Elana's help with design and Dionne and Brandy's help with directing! I used Carolina Fete, a subsidiary of Elana Walker Events for coordination and they were top notch. They are there the whole day to ensure everything goes smoothly and everything happens on time! I seriously do not know what I would have done without these ladies throughout the wedding planning progress. They are the best in the biz!! Thank you guys so much for everything!

    Elana is such a lovely person. She is so great to work with! I found Elana through my venue’s (Grand Marquise Ballroom) recommendation list. I really liked her work so I set up a meeting with her and my (now) husband. From the beginning, she made us feel at ease about planning our wedding. Before finding Elana, I felt so stressed about wedding planning. She made the whole process so fun, easy, and stress free. During the day of the wedding, she made sure I was okay throughout the day. During our room reveal, my husband and I was so overjoyed. Everything looked so beautiful. It felt like she picked my vision for our wedding right out of my brain. Our wedding was so magical and everything was perfect. She is very passionate about her job and it shows. I highly recommend her!

    I loved working with Elana! She was recommended to me through a friend's friend that had gotten married in Raleigh. From the beginning she made us feel very comfortable and was very receptive to our ideas and what we wanted from our wedding. Elana coordinated everything as far as the event design and really helped create our vision. She connected me with Fresh Affairs, CE Rental, and Dreamcatcher Stationary for our wedding design and everything turned out perfect. She was so flexible in that I would call her mid-panic attack regarding the seating chart and she would walk me through it. She always gave me her opinion and suggestions but always let me make the final call. She was very personable and friendly and I would recommend her services to anyone! I don't know what my wedding would have looked like without all of her help and support.

    I also used her planning service Carolina Fete for day of coordination. I was assigned to Dionne and Loanlita. Let me tell you, they were freaking awesome! They start working with you two months out for day of coordination. Our meetings were well organized and I felt as if everything was set up perfectly before the wedding. Dionne texted me all the time and always made sure I knew she was available if I needed help or had questions. On the day of, Dionne and Loanlita were the calm in the storm. They were so kept together and everything flowed perfectly! They catered to my every need and made sure I was happy with everything. I couldn't even say the words "this isn't right" before Dionne was right there asking what needed to be fixed. I don't know how they did it. It was well worth the money and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
