Elegant Events was born twenty-five years ago- around the same time Philadelphia Weddings was launched. Sheila Corbett filled a growing need for professional wedding planners in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Sheila’s corporate career as a project manager aligned seamlessly with couples who sought expert guidance to plan logistically sound and aesthetically beautiful weddings. Like all good things, Elegant Events was created out of love and passion for helping others.

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


From Intern To Owner

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.

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 company 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.
