Throughout our wedding planning process and even the day of, people were constantly commenting that we seemed very relaxed. We attribute that to the amazing efforts of Danielle at Classic Events. From our first meeting, she understood the balance of our formal venue with a desire to throw a fun party for all our guests, while incorporating personal touches. It was evident in all our meetings with vendors that Danielle has strong relationships across the city, and is able to identify the best combinations for her clients. She was extremely responsive and patient throughout planning, and ready to help out with anything (even when you accidentally drop a fork of food down your wedding dress in the middle of cocktail hour). We didn’t have to worry about a single detail the day of our wedding, Danielle was always steps ahead of us and keeping everyone on schedule.

Danielle and her team at Classic Events are efficient, responsive, meticulous, and a complete joy to work with. From the start, Danielle took the time to understand exactly what we wanted for our wedding, and from there she worked tirelessly to help us achieve our vision. From thoughtful vendor selections and design recommendations, to flawless day-of execution, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Beyond her absolute professionalism, Danielle’s kind, thoughtful and calming demeanor put us at complete ease. Looking back on our day, there isn’t a single thing we would change. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to work with Classic Events, and feel particularly lucky to now be able to call Danielle a friend.

I have to say, I was hesitant to hire a planner at first and wasn’t sure what level of planning I needed or whether I needed a planner at all. But, it was apparent to me from my first meeting with Danielle that not only was she a true professional who knew the industry inside and out, but she was kind and someone I would enjoy working with. I was incredibly relaxed on my wedding day and it was 100% due to the fact that I had Danielle by my side and I had full confidence that she had everything under control. Everything went off without a hitch and it is all due to her tireless efforts.

As a testament to how wonderful Danielle and her team are, by the end of the wedding, I felt so sad that we wouldn’t be working together anymore that I immediately started to conjure up events in my mind that I could hire them to plan for me. Don’t let Danielle’s kindness fool you - she is beyond competent and totally kick-ass but in a very sophisticated way. I really don’t think there is anything Danielle can’t do and hiring her was the best thing we did for ourselves and for our wedding. We could not have done it without her!!

Danielle at Classic Events & her team were wonderful to work with. Her attention to detail and calming attitude made the planning process very smooth. She suggested great vendors & we ended up using a lot of them. She was extremely responsive over emailing always replying within 24 hours or less. She attended almost every, if not every vendor meeting and site visit. The weekend of the wedding went flawlessly. I would highly recommend Danielle and her team to execute a creative, elegant, customized event or wedding.

Three cheers for Classic Events and Danielle Elder! From start to finish this team was organized, helpful and fun to work with. Danielle was incredibly respectful of our concerns and needs, coordinating a beautiful day that we’ll remember for a lifetime. Even more importantly, she doesn’t just tell you what you want to hear – a type of candor I SO appreciated and found was very rare with the wedding coordinators I met. She’s honest, direct and will give you the advice you need.
On a personal level, Danielle was sensitive and patient – from fielding my persistent questions about floral arrangements, to showing up at the hotel the morning-of to personally fix a toenail polish smudge, to caring for our older guests’ needs. She is kind, smart, fun and warm.
I cannot recommend Classic Events highly enough. They are the BEST.

There are not enough words to compliment Danielle, her company, and her team. We worked together to plan my wedding for 18 months, and I couldn’t have done it without her. Danielle’s professionalism shines through in everything she does – from helping us find the perfect vendors, to helping me through a potential meltdown over a bump in the road! She is knowledgeable, hardworking, and extremely level-headed and calm. Over the months we worked together, she became a friend and a confidant to both me and my fiancé. She helped us stick to our budget and stay on track with our timeline through the whole process. Danielle and her team helped everything come together seamlessly. Her work is invaluable. I am so happy I had the opportunity to work with Danielle and would recommend her company and services to anyone looking to hire a planner.

Danielle and her team from Classic Events were spectacular. We could NOT have had this wedding without their help and wedding planning wisdom. My husband and I discussed the day after our wedding that hiring Classic Events was the best wedding decision we made and the best money we spent. Danielle is a true professional in every sense of the word, is always calm and composed, and had everything under control and timed perfectly. She was the reason I was not a lunatic bridezilla and I got to really enjoy my wedding day. I told all of my friends and acquaintances who are engaged that they would be CRAZY not to hire Classic Events for their weddings. I honestly cannot compliment their team enough.
