Weddings for Real


Jun 6, 2018

Elana Walker has built up her empire in the Raleigh NC market. It started with her wedding planning company Elana Walker Events back in 2009, and has expanded to her inspiration blog Southern Noir Weddings, her Masterclass for wedding industry vendors, her month-of coordination company Carolina Fete, and she even co-authored a book...she really does it all. It seems like she never stops and always has ideas on how to improve and expand that empire.

Elana came on the show today to talk about how to work best with a wedding planner, and she provides some budget tips as well so you can get the most for your money.

Below is the book that Elana co-wrote, and here's a link to buy.

Planners Unplugged

 

And below are some images of Elana in action as well as a picture of her two kids :)
