I don't know how but I started following Elana's Instagram page. I went through her pictures and also reviewed some of the couples she's worked with in the past. What sold me was the amount of diversity she had and that they entrusted her with their cultural traditions, customs, and visions.

Having a planner is probably be one of the best investments that can be made during the wedding planning process. I found myself to be less stressed and with having Elana she already had a built up portfolio of vendors that it made the selection process a lot easier. With the amount of experience she has she is flexible, patient, detailed oriented, and a perfectionist.

This process would have not been as smooth sailing if it wasn't for Elana! When you are great a what you do and love what you do it doesn't feel like work and I can honestly tell she loves what she does. When you set your own office hours and don't abide by them, or maximizes her time if she's in the state near you or answers a text knowing she tells you to use the online tracking system. She absolutely love her clients and I lover her too!

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!!

There aren't enough words in the English language that can adequately explain Elana's greatness. Our wedding came together beautifully and she made sure everything went smoothly. I received so many compliments from guests on how beautiful everything was, how much everyone enjoyed themselves, and Elana's professionalism. During the entire planning process, she made herself easily accessible which was very important to me since I was an out-of-state bride. I am so grateful she was there for us on such a special day and I highly recommend Elana to any bride-to-be!

Working with Elana Walker Events was absolutely the best decision we have made with our wedding thus far! Elana is very professional, super helpful, and just one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Her personality alone makes you feel like you've known her all your life! She has made us feel more than comfortable since the day we met her and we just love her! She's always just a phone call or email away if we have any questions. We are still in the planning process, but we feel certain that Elana and her team will supersede our expectations for our dream wedding. Elana Walker Events is most definitely the #1 choice in event planning!

Elana and her team (shout out to Loanlita) were awesome. Everything flowed beautifully. Couldn't have asked for a better, more professional team than them! They even won over my mom (who is a very hypercritical person); so great job! Thank you for all that you did for our special day. I will definitely (and have already) be recommending you to all my friends:).

Using Elana Walker Events was honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made. Elana made the entire wedding process enjoyable and decreased my stress considerably. She is a joy to work with and has such a calming, beautiful spirit. She remains professional but is very personable and makes you feel like you are talking to one of your friends. I knew from our first meeting that she was going to be my planner. She is very organized, pays attention to details, and truly cares about making sure the couple has their dream wedding. She handles change well and did a great job keeping everything moving along during our reception. I can't imagine what our wedding would have been like without her. I am one of those brides who can never make up her mind about things and also has trouble being creative. She helped me with the decision making process and offered suggestions to make my wedding more unique when I had trouble. My wedding was more beautiful than my vision because of her and the team of vendors that she recommended!! Thank you so much Elana! Future brides: Elana and her team are the BEST!

Where do I begin with Elana Walker Events? My wife and I were thoroughly please with the professionalism and friendly manner of Elana. Upon meeting Elana for the first time both my wife and I felt extremely at ease. While my wife explained what she was looking for and gave a proposed budget, Elana was very honest and stated that the expectation and proposed budget my not align, but she’ll do her best to make her dream wedding come to fruition. I then phoned Elana and asked her what did she think would be the ideal budget for my then fiancé’s dream Elana gave me a number and said the number could go up or down a couple thousand, but I told her do not worry about the number I would like her to make the dream a reality and plans were in motion.
I believe when you hire a planner you hire the planner for their knowledge, expertise, contacts and day of event precision which Elana gave us all of these. While my wife found our venue prior to us hiring Elana that the only major detail in which she did not have her hand in. Elana was instrumental in finding us a single photography/videography company, florist, cake designer, stationary, ice sculptor, DJ, string quartet, rehearsal dinner location, high end transportation, caterer along with floor and room design. I know that while Elana could have worked with any vendors or subcontractors which we would have chosen I believe to have a smooth lead up and wedding day allowing your planner to have input on the selection process will allow for the planner to be more at ease and comfortable with the professionalism of each of the vendors.
Elana Walker events was the best choice for our wedding. She was gracious and as professional as expected. Our expectations of her were superseded. While there may be less expensive options, I'll only say sometimes you get what you pay for and your wedding day is not the day to look for a deal. We not only look at Elana as our planner, but a true friend as she’s the best.

Where do I begin with the review?

Elana Walker events saved me from a great amount of stress. My wedding was June 11, 2016. I contacted Elana Walker Events in September of 2015. When contacting Elana Walker, I still had no accomplished anything as far as wedding planning. When I first met with Elana, she put my vision together within an hour of us meeting! After booking Elana as our wedding planner, a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders!
On the day of our wedding, the vision the Elana and I had sought out was sitting right in front of my face! She made my dreams come true and made one of the most memorable days of my life amazing!

I highly recommend using Elana Walker Events! If you are looking for someone who is passionate about what they do, then I suggest her company! Every time meeting her, it was always laughs and smiles! Not only is Elana Walker amazing but her staff as well! They made everything move so much smoother the day of our wedding!

If you are looking to have a stress-less time while planning your wedding, then book Elana Walker Events. You will NOT regret it!

One thing we are sure about writing this review, is that there isn't enough words to share how well Elana did. She was punctual, accurate, and a bowl of spunk and ideas. We enjoyed every step of the way, and she made life so much easier during this time. We developed a friendship during the 12-14 months that we worked together. We appreciate that, that's what life is about for us developing genuine friendships. You can never know enough good people!! We highly recommend her as your next planner!!
