    Litmon Wedding 02-22-20

    I am writing this review on Elite Events Management to provide honest feedback regarding my experience with this remarkable company. Elite Events by Tawanda is a wedding and event planning firm providing excellent services to customers. I recently experienced the best customer service of all time!! The planner, Tawanda Sims, was easy to work with and very organized. Her degree of professionalism and creativity increased my comfort level as she negotiated with various vendors on my behalf. Everything from large items such as our venue to small items like a handkerchief was communicated with us from day one and there were no "hidden figures." I strongly recommend using Elite Events; a company operated by an individual who is extremely knowledgeable at budgets and problem solving. I assure you that you will not be disappointed. After entrusting Elite Events by Tawanda to plan everything for my daughter's wedding, the only words I have heard from my guests have been Five-Star, Elegant, Stunning, Beautiful, etc. I was left speechless after such a diamond experience. The staff made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Elite Events by Tawanda exceeded our expectations and made our special day a heartwarming memory we will cherish forever. If you are looking for excellent service from exceptional people, then there is no other option, choose Elite Events by Tawanda.

    Our Halfway Experience

    OMG! This has to be a dream, Ever since my Fiancee and I was first introduced to Tawanda, we have been overly grateful and appreciative for her to be our wedding planner. Even though our wedding is next year 2021, she has gone ABOVE and BEYOND to make sure that we have all that we dream and wish to have for our big day. We are excited to see the day that Tawanda has created for us. Many blessings to Elite Events by Tawanda. To be continued......

    Professionalism at its best

    Tawanda did such a wonderful job at our wedding that without her we simply wouldn鈥檛 have a wedding. Being from out of town, we relied on her for everything and she was resourceful, responsive, and patient. I have to say that one trait you definitely want your planner to have is patience. Tawanda鈥檚 positivity and professionalism was simply incredible. Her network of vendors was extremely impressive and everyone she recommended delivered over and above our expectations. I would without a doubt recommend Tawanda to anyone I know as her incredibly hard work ethic and talent are the only reason we had our dream wedding. Thank you for everything Tawanda!!!

    Above and Beyond

    Tawanda is the angel you need when wedding planning. She ensures everything is executed with excellence and the bride and groom can enjoy the planning period. Because of her expertise we had no worries and had the best team of vendors we could ask for. Although there are things that will go wrong on wedding day we had absolutely no idea and our day was perfect. Her team goes above and beyond until the very last minute. I can not write enough great things about Tawanda. Hire Elite Events for your next event to be sure you experience the diamond experience!

    Tawanda Simms is my Wedding Planner FOR LIFE!!!

    Tawanda Simms Elite Events is a life saver. My fianc茅 and I were in deep water when our first wedding planner no longer felt that they were capable to assist us for our wedding planning. We were less than 30 days until it was our wedding and did not know what to do. Tawanda was recommended to us and words cannot express how we feel having her being part of our wedding experience. SHE IS BEST AND WILL BE MY FAMILY鈥檚 WEDDING PLANNER FOR LIFE!!!! Whoever needs someone who is efficient, professional, reliable, amazing and passionate on what their doing, Tawanda Simms is the one you NEED!!!

    Our special day was 7/1/2017, ceremony and reception at a beautiful location in Davie, Fl. Twanda and her assistant Dee despite the heat of south florida made our day so cool! She remained professional yet felt like family and understood that it's our day and what was important to my wife, she made her priority. Her attention to detail was impeccable and everywhere we turned, either her or Dee were there for us. I cannot thank them enough my only wish is that the day never ended. Thank you so much Twanda and Dee gor making our day so memorable.

    The entire Elite Events staff were very professional and personable. Tawanda has a beautiful disposition, which is a great asset when putting your dreams in her hands. Time is always of the essence and I must say, the I's were dotted and T's were crossed. Communication is a must and can be a tad bit draining when planning that special day. Tawanda maintained professionalism while keeping the wedding party and all participants on cruise control. The Elite Events experience was absolutely fabulous!

    Tawanda is the best from the the beginning to the end. Everything was perfect on my day!!! It was great for my husband and I not to worry about certain things while she planned our wedding. She answered phone calls, text messages, and emails in a timely manner so I didn't have to turn into a bridezilla.. Lol. I told her what I wanted and she took it from there, and boy were we surprised!! Lol . We would use her again for all other party purposes.. Thank you love for ending my year with a bang ??

    Elite Events is hands down the best planning co. I've ever worked with. Tawanda Sims and her staff were the most accommodating and professional team of people I've ever worked with. She held our hands through every step of the planning, even late at night and after hours. She always made herself accessible and responded in a timely manner. Her ideas and suggestions, were impeccable and so classy and sophisticated.

    Tawanda and her team went above and beyond me and my husband's expectations of our dream wedding. They gave us a FairyTale. Our guests are still talking about our wedding........calling it the wedding of the century.

    Thank you Elite Events, but especially to you Tawanda. You are the best wedding planning out there and if future brides don't hire you, they need to, because they are missing out on the best Wedding Planner in S. Florida. Elite Events is going places.

    I don't even know where to begin Mrs. Tee is thee best planner ever, hands down. She was there from start to finish providing advice, suggestions, and being an ear to a picky bride (that's me lol). She has a very sweet spirit and my wedding would not have been so successful without her. Me and my husband came up with the ideas but she and her team produce them. The staff was professional and friendly. We were very pleased with our wedding. There is no such thing as perfect but to us our wedding just that. If you are looking for a wedding planner she is a must have. Mr. & Mrs. Bosket Approves this message. Thanks Mrs. Tee.

    I obtained the services of this company in April of 2013 for my wedding in June 2014. When I met with Mrs. Sims for our event, I immediately felt a connection to her. I had to have her plan our wedding. Professionalism beyond amazing, full of ideas and organization like no other. They made our "dream" feel like a dream. It was so much more beautiful than we could've imagined it to be. We had a BALL and received so many compliments. Not to mention the surprise they helped my family pull off. PRICELESS!!! Its all in the name鈥︹︹.ELITE service is what you will get.
