Owner / Principal Planner The Essence of Elegance Events Warwick, Bermuda

What inspired you to launch your own business?

I love EVERYTHING to do with event planning!! I started at a very young age (planning tea parties with the dolls and teddy bears!) and loved it. I also helped plan parties and events in high school, church conferences, weddings and events.I especially love to plan proposals; I always find a unique spot for this or use things from their relationship to set up the surprise. For weddings, I am all in from start to finish, and I will stop doing weddings the day I don't want to cry as the bride walks down the aisle... that will be my queue that it is time to stop.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

The look on the Bride and Grom's faces as they first see each other, and I love when the couple and their guests see the final results of my work!

"Yolanda is the GREATEST wedding planner you will ever find! I usually don't let people control my "life"; However, Yolanda nicely took the reins and led the way. Boy, was it perfect! Everything ran smoothly from the moment I got there until I left. The only things that were a mess were the things I tried to take on myself, ha! All 30 people who came to the wedding can't stop talking about Yolanda. I think she has officially become part of the family! Blessings to her and her family. WE MISS YOU YOLANDA!" --Yvette E.
