    Wonderful Wedding Experience

    One of my dearest friends recently married in Bermuda and she hired Yolanda to be her wedding coordinator. What good luck! From the beginning of our trip to the reluctant return to the airport, Yolanda took care of all of us. We all truly felt as if Yolanda had taken us under her very competent wing from our first meeting. She is organized, thorough, efficient, considerate and one funny lady. If you retain Yolanda as a wedding coordinator, your special day will be easy and you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your wedding!

    Thanks, Yolanda, for making Michele and Robert's wedding such a marvelous event!

    Essence of Elegance Events's reply:

    Hello Dana,
    Thank you so much for the kind words!! It was a great pleasure to plan and be a part of Michele & Robert's wedding and I had a great time with ALL of you. Hope to see you all soon.
    Warmly
    Yolanda

I have worked in several roles for events with Essence of Elegance. If forced to choose, it would be the behind the scenes logistics on wedding day and the magic of watching it all come together that are my absolute favorite. Seeing it all come together gives me great joy. In planning and life, I absolutely love forming connections with others.

Born in Bermuda but raised by my Grandmother in Bequia (part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines) for 3 years. I graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a Bachelors in Business Administration. After graduation, I worked in the hotel industry for almost 5 years in the reservations dept. Working in that role lead me to love helping with events. Planning an event from start to finish gives me a sense of gratification when I see the clients enjoying themselves.
