Top Notch, Professional Planner

We hired Megan Drake and team from Elegant Events to assist with my daughters wedding on 8/26/2023 at Overlook Barn on top of Beech Mountain. Megan provided above and beyond every single thing promised and contracted for, and then some. Mountain top logistics can be a challenge and boy did they come through - experienced suggestions - detailed and thoughtful, professional execution. Wedding day was relaxing - seriously!! and beautiful - things ran like a top. Megan and team even bustled Cassie's dress for cocktail hour and reception (who knows where I was). Highest of recommendations for Elegant Events and Megan Drake. Almost (almost), wish I had another wedding to plan.

A True Source for Your Big Day

Megan and her team were able to execute our vision for our North Carolina Mountain wedding with seamless joy and intention. We were an out of town couple and Megan's vast experience helped make our wedding a reality. We leaned on and learned from her in many ways. Plus, our large wedding party and large family adored the opportunity to work with her. Our wedding was infinitely better because of her!

Chetola Wedding November 2022

If you need a competent, calm, and fabulous team, hire Megan! She is always on top of everything. She provides sage advice, but lets you control the day to ensure that it's exactly how you and your spouse want it to be. We had some weather issues (coming off Hurricane Nicole) and Megan was instrumental in helping us make a calm, informed decision. Megan and her team executed all the very special, small details perfectly. I could not imagine the day without her and her team!

The Elegant Event and I have worked together on many events, and is always a delight to see Megan and her team in their element. Their events are so well coordinated, all details are amazingly and flawlessly put together!

I have had the great pleasure of working with The Elegant Event. I can not say enough positive comments about this business. Megan is absolutely amazing and wonderfully professional. She keeps everyone in line so that everything goes smoothly, yet she is extremely conscious that it is your day and wants it to go just as you wish. She works out any problems or mishaps that come along so that you do not have to....all you have to do is enjoy your day. I have and will continue to pass her name along to all wedding clients. Having photographed hundreds of weddings myself, I can say without hesitation, having her makes everything go a lot smoother and makes for a happy bride and groom!
