Q&A with Elana Walker, CWP

Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BUSINESS?
A: I began my entrepreneurial journey as a wedding planner in 2009. I was working for a dead end job and I needed to make extra money. I soon realized that this could be a full time career and I grew from there. I left my day job in 2013 and never looked back.

Q: WHAT QUALIFIES YOU TO PLAN WEDDINGS?
A: Early on I decided to obtain my certification in wedding planning. This taught me the proper way to plan weddings by learning how to select vendors, review contracts and so much more. 8 years later and countless weddings, I have won Best of The Knot from 2013 – 2017 and was recently inducted into The Knot’s Hall of Fame. From 2012 – 2017 I have won Wedding Wire’s Couples Choice Award. In 2016 I won Event of the Year at the International Live Events Association Trinity Awards and in 2016 & 2017 I won Best Wedding of a 75k budget of higher. In addition, both NBC & CBS affiliate stations have called upon my expertise and was featured on the morning news as well as a show called,  My Carolina Today.

Q: WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU?
A: Many clients describe me as organized, responsive, available, knowledgable, well connected, meticulous with a keen eye for timeless and elegant designs. These attributes often award my clients trust which brings on a sense of relief.  After getting to know me you will find that I am easy going, friendly & humous which enables me to establish a relationship that we can continue beyond the wedding day.

Q: HOW DO I GET STARTED?
A: Let’s set up a time to chat further. I love getting to know new people and listening to their wedding day dreams. If we are a good fit for one another, you pay a 40% retainer for full planning or a 50% retainer for event management after signing the contract and then we go from there!

Q: HOW DO YOUR PAYMENTS WORK?
A: After you pay your retainer, for full planning services, we will create a payment plan that will be automatically drafted from your account either on the 1st or the 15th (you choose). If you have selected Event Management, you will pay a 50% retainer and the balance will be due 30 days prior to your wedding. 50% of the 12% of the design fee is due once the design is approved. The balance is due 14 days prior.

Q: WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER PAYING THE RETAINER?
A: I will reach out right away with a welcome letter and our next steps. If its full planning, I will begin working on your planning tools. If its event management, you will be sent a logistics questionnaire and a wedding party guide. These services don’t normally begin until 2 months away so if you book me before then, please feel free to reach out with any questions about planning that you may have. Design services begin 6 months prior to your wedding. i find that before 6 months, brides are still trying to sort out the look of their wedding. If you know what you want, GREAT! We can jump start the process earlier.
