I am a DIY sort of bride so I was apprehensive about hiring a wedding planner. I booked Elana as a day-of-coordinator 14 months prior to my wedding day. Since booking her, she has allowed me to consult her frequently about vendors and helped me review vendor contracts. She is extremely committed to making the months leading up to the wedding as stress free as possible. I couldn't ask for a better wedding planner!

Your such a sweetheart Melanie! Anything I can do to help.
Organized professional and personable! I loved what Elana did for my sister and brother
Wedding planning never once was stressful. My planner and her assistants were more than Great! Our wedding was more perfect than either of us could have expected
Selecting Elana as our wedding planner was single-handedly the greatest decision that we made during the entire wedding process. Elana has a friendly and approachable personality that sets you at ease during all your meetings. While her professionalism and attention to detail gives you comfort that one of the biggest days of your life will be under complete control.
From the beginning, Elana helped us set and stay with a realistic budget by guiding us through the uncharted wedding industry. She recommended amazing vendors that we would not have found ourselves. This permitted our style to be infused into the wedding rather than having a string of "Googled Vendors" who were beyond our price point. She helped shape our ambitious ideas into a complete and cohesive vision. She prepared a number of logistics to ensure that every element of the day -- including with our wedding party -- ran smoothly and on time. Even her staff, several of whom I met over the course of the experience, were a great pleasure to work with and meet. Particularly, her assistant coordinator on our wedding rehearsal and day -- Brandi -- had a sweet personality and was very professional with keeping all the details together.
Most importantly for me, Elana gave me the confidence and ability to truly enjoy my wedding day. I had no concerns on the day of the wedding because I knew regardless the issue, Elana would handle it. I can reflect back on the day knowing that the stress was removed and only timeless memories with my new husband, family and friend remain. That alone is worth it, period.
The only regret I have is not engaging Elana sooner. It would have saved us a lot of time with unnecessary vendor vetting and stress of struggling to get organized. Do yourself, your fiance, your guests and your future memories a huge favor and meet with Elana.
Savoie-Faire Signature Events coordinated our daughter's wedding reception. Ms Walker recommended vendors and coordinated the activities for the event. She was personable, professional, resourceful, and thorough in planning our event. The reception was highly successful and several guessts provided highly favorable compliments about the events of the evening. My husband and I were very pleased with the services Savoir-Faire Signature Events provided for us and recommend Ms. Walker and her staff without reservation.
Elana was the perfect wedding coordinator!! She immediately took charge--in a very positive way--of a stagnant nerve-wracking situation. She came in the middle of a.work in progress that needed an expert. She addressed every issue in a professional way--calming nerves along the way.
I was very impressed with her relationship with the vendors. She is very well thought of by the other professionals necessary for a beautiful wedding--florists, caterers, linen person, photographers, etcs. She was just the best!!!
Absolutely loved the professionalism of her Elana and her assistants during the wedding!! Everything ran extremely smoothly!!! Can't thank her enough for everything she did. She is a beautiful person and a WONDERFUL person to work with!!!
Elana was more than fantastic, and did a phenomenal job as our wedding coordinator. She went above and beyond, not only to make our day special but also to ensure we had everything we needed. Elanaâ€™s attention to detail, professionalism, and overall positive attitude were insurmountable in the celebration of our marriage. Not only is she GREAT at her job but she is just a wonderful person to have around. Before it was over, we felt as if she was part of the family. No matter how much you plan there will always be something that does not go as you intended. In those situations, Elana took the bull by the horn and made everything flow seamless for us, as well as our guests.
Our wedding was undoubtedly amazing, and Elana played a major role in making it happen. She was always on time, responsive, helpful, delivered exactly what she promised, and was very knowledgeable of the â€śwedding industryâ€ť. Her judgment and recommendations were beyond on point. Elana consulted with us on most of our vendors and played a crucial role in selecting our limo service. She made some recommendations and steered us away from our first choice. Thank God, as 2 days later the original limo company we selected went bankrupt and did not tell any of their customers, leaving them without transportation on their big day. Without her guidance we would have been one of those unlucky and disappointed couples.
Thank you Elana for finding and developing your gift/craft, and sharing it with the world!

Let me just start out by saying the planning of our special day and our day in its entirety could not have happened without the services of Savoir-Faire Signature Events!
Elana is the best wedding planner anyone could ask for! I often thought of her as my friend because she supported us so well, and was not just there to do her job, but to lend a hand to what we needed and even lend a shoulder for me as the bride. Even when we had to push our wedding day back, Elana was there for support, for encouragement, and to push us through! I will always remember 'it's okay! It's just a 'wee-bit' longer!' She was very professional, kept in direct contact with us, and supplied every need and want that we asked for! She was more than a wedding planner, she's our friend also, and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner!
Her staff was perfect in assisting us on the day of! They made our day run so smoothly, of course under the direction of Elana! But also, she was there to reassure us that everything would be just fine, and we didn't have to face anything because she was there to face everything for us!
I would recommend Elana and her team to anyone that will need assistance in planning their special day! Oh, did I forget that she will allow you to customize your package to exactly what you need! And her connection to the florist was awesome!
Thanks again Elana and your team, Savoir-Faire Signature...
Working with Elana was such a pleasure. She was just what I needed to stick to a wedding planning schedule, was always responsive to my emails/calls/texts, and was just an all around sweetheart. Every vendor that I interacted with spoke highly of her professionalism and organization, and after my rehearsal and wedding all of my wedding party said the same (and many guests said this was the first wedding they went to that actually started on time LOL) . Because of Elana and Savoir-Faire Signature Events, I was able to be a calm and relaxed bride on the day of my wedding--I was completely confident that every detail would be handled, and everything turned out as perfectly as I dreamed it would!

Thank you love!! It was a pleasure to work with you and Will!!!
Leaving a review for this vendor is nothing but a pleasure. I went into planning this wedding with the hopes of having a immediate connection with all my vendors. On the most special day of my life I wanted to trust the people I worked with. Well Elana is truly someone you can depend on to deliver, and ensure that your completely satisfied. Nine months ago I sat in her office and told her my vision. On this past Saturday she made my dreams come true. My wedding was a glamorus wedding, and one my guest raved about soley because of her. During this process she made sure I spoke to her several times a day to discuss where we are with everything. She was so responsive to all my needs, and helped me to be calm during this process. She provides you a feeling of having a friend, but she is completely professional. Being a professional is a priority to her. She allowed me to feel so supported while taking on my wedding. I wanted little to do with the planning , and she understood that and handled all the detials. She provided that extra peace that all brides needs, and ensured that I was able to enjoy my wedding experience. I would recommended any bride to her because her work is exemplary. Not only is she an excellent planner, but her staff is also extraordinary!! These ladies made life for me on my wedding day easy. They were able to execute my dream wedding all while wearing a smile. Even my family and all my guest raved about this company, and their responsiveness. This by far was my best investment during this process. If your looking for the best and premier wedding planning group they are it. I'm not a person that is easily impressed, but this woman and her company exceeded my expectations. Elana Walker and company is simply the best, and nothing less than perfection.

Thank you so much!!! Chaunte you are a sweetheart and I'm happy I had the chance to be a part of your special day. It was my pleasure!!
Elana Walker and Savoir Faire Signature Events offers a Certain value and quality of service that you just don't find these days. She truly has a God given talent for what she does. I feel blessed that I was able to find such a kind and genuine person to work with us on our special day. Through a few meetings, and phone calls Elana was able to transform our wedding day into the most emotional and meaningful day I've spent on this earth. I left the country for work for 3 months and arrived back 4 weeks before the wedding and this woman did not miss a beat. I was in awe watching her work her magic the day of. I literally had not a worry in the world. And if there were any issues I had no idea of it. The day was seamless and magical and I would urge you to contact Elana if you are planning an event. It's so worth it.
They were wonderful. I worked with Janelle and she was so fantastic. She was funny, attentive and thorough. She made the process extremely pleasant. All of my family raved about how well the wedding flowed and that was all her! Love!!!!
Elana is awesome. Very professional. Very attentive, flexible, open-minded, creative and just a good person period. I am so glad we chose her to help plan our wedding! After our initial consult we knew that she was the one. We booked with her almost a year in advance and 6 months before our wedding we changed everything but the bride and groom and she was eager to start on plan B. Checking in and following through with everything. I cannot express how much we enjoyed her. She pulled everything together and gave us a lifetime of memories. Highly recommended!!
There are not enough words in the English dictionary to describe how thankful and blessed both my husband and I are that we had Elana on our team for our Wedding July 20, 2013 at the Grand Marquise Ballroom. I remember how enthusiastic she was the very first time we spoke with her on the phone and she carried that excitement the entire 8 months we worked together. We had other consultations set up for that day and we booked her on the spot after first meeting her. She is a true professional and friend however we love her like family. She kept our nerves and stressed down all while keeping the anticipation and excitement going. Her team is outstanding and was eagerly ready to assist us in anyway we needed them to. After our wedding my husband I counted and thanked God for our blessing and Elana was one of them. I am going to miss our weekly/sometimes daily emails and fun-filled conversations. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication. We love you and although our wedding is over it has only paved the way for a lasting friendship! Get ready to plan our future parties and babyshower(s) any and everything that will allow us to work with you again!
Our wedding day was AWESOME! Our vision was executed perfectly! And I'm convinced we would not have been able to enjoy our day as much without the assistance of Savoir-Faire Signature Events. We definitely did not have a cookie cutter wedding. It was very personalized and we are still receiving raves about various aspects of our reception. It was such a blessing and pleasure to have worked with Elana and her team. Elana's professionalism, experience, and creativeness sets her apart from other vendors. I was a little weary at the beginning about the cost of her services, but I can attest SHE IS WORTH IT . Elana is very organized, attentive to detail, gives her honest opinion, trustworthy, personable, returns phone calls, and always has the client's best interest at heart. She referred several great vendors to us and we really trusted her judgment.
I've heard of horror stories between brides and their wedding planner. I am so thankful I had a worry free day and positive experience. Thank you so much Savoir-Faire Signature Events! We wish you much success in the future!
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!
