We want to thank the staff of Elegant Events for performing miracles on our Wedding day! They took care of everything, including the 100 members of my family and other guests. Everything flowed smoothly and was totally amazing. We didn't know what to expect of the flowers, but when we walked into the Reception room we were "wowed" beyond belief. It was a Winter Wonderland, and we loved the flower wall. (Bryan you are awesome) We will make sure to recommend you to all of our family and friends. Thank you Cecelia for all the blood sweat and tears you put into making our day magnificent!

Elegant Events created the most perfect wedding day for me and my new Husband. Cecelia and her staff made all my dreams of a perfect wedding a reality. We want to thank Wesley, Bryan, Nicole, Austin, Mary and of course Cecelia for all their hard work, dedication and attention to every detail. The cake was Marvelous and the flowers made us speechless. We could not ask for a more perfect start to our new lives.

Thank You Cecelia!

Danielle, you can't have a Cinderella Wedding on a $2.00 budget. I worked with you and all you wanted was discounts on every service I provided. Weddings aren't free.

Cecelia is the owner of Elegant Events wedding service in Tpa,FL.She was very unpofessional at times when planing my wedding,and rude. She didnt understand that her job was to NOT make the bride stress,and she did nothing but add stress to me being a bride. She offered to set up my wedding venue with candles and decor I paid over $100 for,and after my wedding I NEVER got my items back.She kept them and refused to give them back! I would NEVER recommend her service to anyone!!!! Save your time and money go elsewhere,but dont hire her!!! She is very rude,and will not help you she just wants your money!!!!! Beware!!!!!

Elegant Events responded with the following comments:

I never had a client by the name of Angela and I surely didn't have a Wedding on 1/20/09. This was posted by a Bridezilla that got married on 6/13/09 at the Kapok. So Danielle you hired me as your coordinator...not your planner...there is a difference. There was just no pleasing you. Even your parents said you were a very unreasonable girl.
