Savoir-Faire Signature Events
On May 25,2013, My husband and I renewed our vows to celebrate ten years of marriage. After only one meeting with us, Elana listened and understood what we wanted for this event. She immediately went to work and introduced us to fantastic vendors that believed in being budget friendly, professional, dependable, and the quality of services given were simply superb. Planning a wedding tends to take a toll on many people and before we met Elana it was taking its toll on us. We both work, we have three small children, and we are both going to school...Where would we have the time to plan, better yet where would we get the energy and brain power to do so. Thankfully, Elana stepped in and prevented all of the extra stress and thanks to her our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and more. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful and memorable our wedding was. When I first met Elana I told her that I'm not really picky, but I want this occasion to be simplistic and elegant. Now that the wedding has come and gone, when I speak to my family and friends who attended our ceremony, they all compliment on different aspects of that evening, the flowers, centerpieces, the music... but each time when it was time for the conversations to end they all ended by saying one thing, " Lauren your wedding ceremony was the very definition of Simplistic Elegance and we enjoyed every moment of it. " Thank you So Much Elana for making those special moments so breath taking, for the memories made, for the bonds that were reunited and strengthened, and most of all for the chance to show our three beautiful children that truly blessed love can accomplish anything in such a beautiful environment. We will see you in another ten years.
Elana was great in helping us plan an unusual event--just the wedding reception. She was extremely flexible and provided great vendors for us to choose from. Everything turned out perfectly, even tho the weather on the day of the event (it was held outside) was not so wonderful. We could not be happier.
Elana was amazing and made everything flow so well and provided me with no stress on this big day. She is so organized and responsive and really catered to the needs of my family. She added special touches to things to make our day unique and came up wih wonderful ideas. She took hold of everything and was confident, thorough and extremely meticulous and organized which made our wedding so spectacular. It is clear that she is passionate about event planning and goes ou of her way to make things great. She even made herself available after hours at times to make sure we were okay or to answer any questions. My wedding was the best day of my life because I married my best friend and Elana made sure it all went perfectly.
Only if the stars could go higher! Elana was the best planner I could ask for. She's attentive, professional, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile for brides. She also did my flowers. Never was there a moment I wasn't confident with decisions and the day of my wedding it started on time to the tee! The whole day was perfect, and not only did I get a fab wedding I gained a new friend!
It was with great pleasure that my husband and I had the opportunity to work with the infamous Ms. Elana Lynette Walker. She without a doubt is one of the most loving, professional, hard-working individuals that I have crossed paths with. Her first initial impression is remarkably irresistable beyond belief because she has such a open, yet humourous persona that immediately captures your heart. I knew our wedding would be beautiful and purposefully driven and indeed it was. Encore to Savior-Faire Signature Events and Staff.
As a newlywed of almost 1 month, I still reflect on my day. Considering, I'm big on replaying things in my mind and finding every possible thing that I could have done differently, I am so very happy to have the consistent thought that "my wedding day was perfect". Elana was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She was extremely personable and that went a very long way. I couldn't have imagined my wedding day being what it turned out to be. My guests have continued talking about it and have named it by far the best wedding they've attended. Even my husband was 100% pleased and he's everyones biggest critic! So again, I thank Elana and her staff for giving us our dream wedding. I would highly recommend Savoir-Faire for any bride looking for her fairy tale day.
Elana Walker of Savoir Faire Signature Events is an amazing wedding planner to say the least. She was very organized, very experienced, and has an creative eye for details. When I was all out of ideas or solutions she steps in with all the ideas and solutions to assure me/us that our day will be beautiful. She is highly professional and energetic, her personality had us all laughing throughout the process over these months. Although she does this a lot, I felt special, I felt as if my day was just as important to her as it was for me as the bride. Elana Walker and her team do what they do very well. I hope to work with her in the future, maybe a baby shower? Who knows, but I want to have something again just so we all can work with her again. It was absolutely a pleasure and a joy to work with this beautiful wedding planner inside and out.
Elana was great! I had a few vendors that I hired before I hired Elana mess up big time. Elana smoothed things out and I had a wonderful day! Elana and her staff were friendly, professional and a joy to work with.
Elana and her team were worth every cent, from the beginning to the end result.
Elana was there every time i needed her (i paid for that packet)
From responsible to team player to comfort, it was a pleasure working with her.
I am sad it is over.
I couldn't ask for a better wedding planner. I'm glad I hired Elana at the beginning of the planning process. She reduced my stress level considerably, and stayed calm and confident throughout the process.
Elana took the time to get to know us and learn as much as she could about what we wanted. She then created a step by step plan to get us there. The decisions involved were a bit overwhelming, but she cut through the chaos and suggested absolutely perfect vendors. I would never have found them by myself. She has great pride in delivering a quality outcome, and has answers to every potential issue.
She is professional, organized, calm, kind, responsive, helpful, creative, fun, and knowledgeable. Her services were priced considerably lower than others. Why would you go anywhere else?
Elana Walker is is a very professional and thorough wedding planner. She handles details before, during and after the wedding. She listened to what I wanted and made every effort to make my day special.... even in Fayetteville. I only wish I had something else going on so we could work together again.
Elana and her team were awesome! A few minor things went wrong during the day but they took care of them and I didn't find out until I was on the beach in Costa Rica, enjoying my honeymoon. The value was well worth the price.
Elana was very instrumental in making sure all of my needs were met and if there was something that she couldn't do or didn't think would look right, she didn't hesitate to offer her professional advice. I never experienced a lot of stress during my planning and I accredit that to Elana making everything light-hearted and an "easy-fix." We shared many ideas and plenty of laughter throughout the process. She met all of my needs plus some unexpected ones too. I would recommend her to anyone I knew that was considering marriage. I now consider her a friend!
First of all let me start by thanking Elana Walker for providing us with a perfect wedding. Everything we ask her she did. She was not only very professional, she was a great friend throughout the entire planning process, up until the day and afterwards. If I could do it all over again I would hire Elana again. She was very precise down to the minute. She listened to our vision and made it some magical. If you are reading this to determine who you should choose Elana would be a great choice. She is worth every thing you can ask for and imagine. Thanks again Elana, you are wonderful!!!
We truly appreciate all of Elana's excellent services she provided for my daughter's wedding. She was right on target and everything came together beautifully. She is very professional and into all of the details. I live in California, my daughter lives in Wash DC and the wedding was in Chapel Hill, NC. Elana coordinated all of the various vendors and was front and center organizing everything on the big day. Cannot thank her enough and I would highly recommend her to plan and organize any event.
Elana Walker's Professionalism is beyond 5.0
My first wedding came to life when God directed me to Elana. My wedding was so beautiful. I could not imagine it any other way because it was PERFECT. I have no idea how she did it with our budget but she did. Anytime I needed her she was always there. Elana's work is more than amazing and I thank God for her and the excellent quality of service. Thank you Savoir-Faire, Event Planning & Management for bringing my princess wedding to life.
The wedding was wonderful due in large part to Savoir-Faire and Elana Walker's involvement. I have known Elana for about 15 years, however I did not know the extent of her wedding knowledge until she began to work on our wedding. I must say that she impressed me and immediately my worry floated away. Our wedding weekend would not have been the same without her. Savoir-Faire's recommendations and ability to pull everything together and make it happen in a very professional way really sets her apart from others. They helped with everything from venue selection, to venue and vendor recommendations to invitiation wording and day of coordination. Many of my guests have approached me and expressed their delight in Elana's wedding planning/coordination efforts for the day of. The day went smoothly and flowed divinely. I felt no pressure and was at ease. We made great memories and my guests are still talking about the grand time they had. We cannot thank Savoir-Faire and Elana Walker enough.
From day one Elana was quickly responsive to all phone calls and emails. She was available to reassure me and guide me. She gave me, as the bride, a great sense of peace in knowing that my ceremony and reception would go off without a hitch. And you know what it did! Met all my expectations and more. Thank you Savoir-Faire! Thank you Elana Walker!
Elana and her team are a talented group of wedding professionals. It was not only a pleasure to work with her, but I was able to feel comfortable with giving her tasks of great importance to me and know they would be handled as if I were doing them myself. A real treat for a bride who wants her stamp of approval on every big thing and every little detail. Thanks Savior Faire for making my wedding day dream come true!

Elana was an absolute pleasure to work with. If you are looking for the perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness, that is Elana. I felt like we were friends from the first time I spoke with her on the phone. I felt very comfortable working with her before and the day of the wedding. She helped to make my job as the wedding photographer easier and I would love to work with her again in the future.
