    Great team and great experience!

    Due to covid and other circumstances, we had 4 months to pull together a farm and tent wedding. Thanks to Elana and Lolita the day off we were able to have the wedding of our dreams and it exceeded all our expectations. I would highly recommend the EW team -- Elana helped us pull together an amazing vendor team that made our wedding weekend so perfect!

    The BEST coordinator!

    I am SO happy that I chose Elana Walker Events as my wedding coordinator. My original wedding date was supposed to be in May of 2020, and unfortunately I had to postpone twice. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Elana. I barely had to lift a finger as she coordinated with ALL of the other vendors to reschedule BOTH times. Once the wedding day finally came, I could not have been more relaxed knowing Elana was running the show. I was truly able to let go and trust in her, which is not an easy task for me! Not a single thing went wrong, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day!

    Swag surfing into love

    As a little girl, I never envisioned what I wanted my wedding to look like. But our wedding would have made little me so happy. When we started the journey of planning our wedding it was important to hire someone who felt comfortable with working with same sex couples. Elana assured us that she did, and we entrusted her with the process. And she did not disappoint. She listened to what we wanted and always delivered it to perfection. When we couldn’t make a decision, she was there to offer alternatives that made the most sense.

    To see the wedding day come together, it was everything I could have hoped it to be. Elana is like family now and we are so thankful that we were able to work with her.
