REVIEWS OF Elana Walker Events IN North Carolina

New Review: Elana Walker Events (EWE) site is filled with beautiful flowers, crystals, smiling faces and a promise to make your wedding vision a reality...and that's where the good times end. Unfortunately, at times, it was as if we were planning EWE's concept and not ours. We felt rejected when we proposed ideas like a professional dance troupe to serenade the groom, selected Asian mums that she stated we would not use until I stated, "yes we are." It was constant disconnect during ceremony planning and/or vendors if we hired staff other than those she suggested. If EWE Events hadn't birthed the idea or experienced it, she was slow to accept and/or embrace it. As we progressed through the months, we often felt secondary and or ignored during our sessions. Elana would pull her laptop out and start sending emails or answering calls during our specified time. The most disappointing experience was on the wedding day as she was late getting to the venue because she had stopped by a vendors location and without authorization, authorized them to charge our credit card even though email traffic from her promised that she would return items in question on the Monday following our wedding to avoid an additional cost. Luckily, we had the emails to avoid an ugly dispute yet Elana's comments to the vendor tried to suggest that we were fighting paying our bill. Additionally, we have yet to have "Our Planner" completed as promised even though she's been contacted via email concerning this issue and has not responded to any correspondence from us be it text, email or postal service. She was sent a letter thanking her for her expertise while at the same time sharing our disappointment and making some suggestions based on our experience. Finally, she promised to feature our wedding on her site the day of and day after as she does with all her customers; however, that did not happen until my I called and questioned why we were not featured. Though text messages, her response was that 'she was away from her computer running around all day and did not have pictures saved to her phone. She did not want to post it too late and no one see it so she was just going to compile it with the day of pictures. She texted that 'sometimes she has to do that if she doesn't get a chance to do the day before.'

I have had the great honor and privilege of working with Elana a few times and every single time has been enjoyable. As a wedding professional myself I can respect how much Elana goes out of her way for her clients. Minor setbacks may occur on your wedding day but I doubt you will ever know of it. I've seen Elana make changes on the fly and the day continued to run smoothly. Only a knowledgeable, skilled and experienced planner can do this. Lastly I can testify to Elana's ability to keep all the vendors in the loop. Your wedding day is a collaborative effort between multiple wedding professionals. Do you really want the task of having to communicate with all of them at even given time? Elana sends out a very detailed timeline with vendor names and contact information. In addition If I have a question I've never had to wait till the next day for the answer. You want regret working with Elana.

Elana and her team were absolutely amazing with planning, executing, day of coordinating our amazing wedding day in April 2018! Elana was the first investment my husband and i made after getting engaged! I know Elana was going to be my wedding planner before i was even engaged! Her social media presence, precious reviews, hearing testimonials from other EWE brides, I KNEWW therefore I was so happy when she was available for our date and we instantly clicked! Elana was always extra attentive to our needs, she was always available, for business, for ideas, for venting sessions, she was always there- so crucially important for brides! She is extremely knowledgeable in this area which is evidently her passion! She is very well connected in and outside of the RDU area and that’s extremely important as we lived in Winston Salem and for married in Raleigh! Elana’s execution of our design was emmaculent! Our guests are STILLLLL talking about how beautiful our day was. The day of was so smooth! We had no issues (or if we did- we didn’t know about them) which is how it should be on wedding day! Elana had a schedule and times set for every detail leading up until thw very minute I walked down the aisle! She handled our reception excellently! Every aspect of her execution of our day was done with excellence, class and professionalism. We often wish to relive our wedding day! It was absolutely perfect! And it has a lot to do with Elana and her team being so amazing throughout the process! I’m so honored to be a #EWEBride!

The very first thing I did after getting engaged was look for a wedding planner. Elana's reputation for excellence preceded her, so I immediately put her on a short list of potential planners to speak with. After our first conversation, I knew I had to have her, and I have never been disappointed!! Elana and her team went above and beyond to make my wedding day extra special. Elana is organized, thoughtful and always accessible! Plus, she is well-connected with tons of other great vendors, which makes the selection process much easier. I was not one of those brides whose been planning her wedding since childhood, and I initially struggled with an overall wedding theme. Elana's creativity really helped me narrow down the things I wanted (and didn't want) to make the vision in my head come to life! There truly aren't enough wonderful things I can say about Elana Walker Events. I plan to recommend her to everyone I know! If you are on the fence about using her services, don't be, you will not regret it!!

I've had the opportunity to work with Elana Walker Events at numerous weddings over the last 3 years. Her and her staff always come with their "A" game. As a DJ I believe having a planner is essential to a well programmed wedding, but not just any planner. A planner that pay's attention to detail, listens to her clients and offers her expert advice and making her clients dreams come to reality, that is what I've seen and is why Elana is one of the planners I always refer to my clients regardless if you are looking for a planner or never thought about it before.

As a groom the need for a wedding planner was FAR from my list of necessities! However; my wife knew she wanted/needed a wedding planner and knew it HAD to be Elana Walker Events (EWE). During our very first consultation with Elana over the phone she made it evident that she and EWE sole mission was to ensure our day was everything we wanted and dreamed of. EWE literally took our thoughts and ideas out of our heads, placed it on paper and excuted our #teamBEaffair2018 vision PERFECTLY! Throughout the entire planning process my wife and I never got stressed that something would go wrong or something would be out of place. Every aspect of our wedding that pertained to EWE was seamless and “on point!” While on the day of the wedding, most brides and grooms expect something, if not everything, to go wrong, I woke up with not a single worry on earth thanks to Elana and her team! To other grooms who are like me that feel a wedding planner is not a big deal and can do without a planner; I HIGHLY recommend Elana Walker Events. I promise you’ll see the benefits and be glad you chose Elana Walker Events!

Elana Walker is hands down the best event planner that I’ve worked with during my videography career. Her team along with herself make the hectic wedding days operate smoothly as a well-oiled machine. From a wedding videographers perspective, it’s imperative that your planner is knowledgeable and knows how to adjust things accordingly to the flow of the wedding day. Elana does this with ease while keeping the couple and vendors on the same page. My working experiences with her compared to other planners or no planners at all is entirely night and day. Brides and groom listen to me carefully, do not skimp out on your planner, they can make or break your precious wedding day.

Elana Walker Events coordinated my wedding last October, but here’s the best part about Ms. Elana. She came in at the tail end of things and ensured that our day was absolutely wonderful. She did not skip a beat and you would have never known she wasn’t working with us from day one. Every time I had an issue, a question or an idea she was there to listen if it was answering a call or responding to a text. She’s not just a planner but at some point she was almost my stylist. Her team was just a patient as she was and if I had to do it all over again, she would be my first choice. There is so much good I could say about her. If you’re looking for a planner that goes above and beyond look no further, this is the right one for the job!
