Meet the Owner
Donielle Warren, Owner & Lead Event Planner, worked corporately as a project manager and supervisor for 10 years and has experience in Business Management, Special Event Planning and Hospitality. Always having a logistical plan and an eye for design, she brings increased attention to detail and innovative creativity to her work with clients and vendors.
It seems like yesterday that Donielle started her wedding planning internship. Her story began with the owner of Elegant Events inviting her to observe a wedding ceremony just to see if Donielle actually wanted a career in this industry. Donielle arrived extra early on wedding day so eager to take it all in! When the owner arrived, she found Donielle handing out wedding programs to guests that arrived ahead of schedule. She quickly apologized and explained to the owner that she saw a need and addressed it. Needless to say, Donielle was HIRED! It was 15 years ago when she was given the opportunity that would forever chart her course.
Though time has passed and roles have changed Donielle still remains true to her goal of serving others. Today, Donielle humbly stands as the owner of the company that gave her a start in the wedding planning industry. There’s so much more to accomplish, but she reminds everyone that with God anything is possible!
