Our Story

Like All Good Things,

Our Company Was Created Out of Love For Helping Others.

Elegant Events was born 25 years ago when founder, Sheila Corbett, filled a growing need for professional wedding planners in the Greater Philadelphia area. Like all good things, the company was created out of love for helping others.

Since that time, Elegant Events expanded its offering to include floral design and stationery services. And with the demand in services began the growth of the Elegant Events team.

Back in 2004, Donielle Warren interned with Elegant Events to gain hospitality experience and fulfill the requirements of a college course. Unknown to Sheila and Donielle, this experience would plant a seed that would flourish. After graduating from college, Donielle continued planning weddings and special events while working corporately as a project manager and team manager.

In 2015, Donielle became the new owner of Elegant Events. On February 14th – Valentine’s Day, the company launched a rebrand to celebrate the transition. Since then, the growing team has planned weddings with hundreds of new couples. It has been featured in local and national media and elevated its reputation in the Philadelphia region as an award-winning planner and designer.

Through unwavering faith, dedication, and hard work over the years, the team is ecstatic about what they’ve accomplished and what’s yet to come! But don’t take our word for it… See what Our Couples have to say
