Elana Walker, CWP Certified Wedding Planner/ Owner
Meeting new people when they are at their happiest point in life is one of the things I truly enjoy about my job. The excitement in the brides eyes to fulfill her desires of having the wedding of her dreams. The groom, proud as a peacock, embarking on a new journey in life and stepping into the next phase of manhood, pulls at my heartstrings as I sit and listen to my clients share their dream wedding idea’s with me.
I majored in fashion design in 2000 at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago and that¹s where my love for beautification, style, and design was refined. When I returned to NC I decided to become a certified wedding planner through the American Academy of Wedding Professionals. Becoming a certified wedding planner prepared me to project things that may happen from early in the planning process, catch things in contracts that are not in the best interest of my clients, how to save my clients money, the proper way to plan a wedding and so much more.
“Getting to know my clients and creating an event that represents them is the goal for every couple I work with. It is important for me to get to know my clients and to deliver the wedding of their dreams even if they can’t verbally relay every detail.”
