Elegant and Classy Events Professionals

Matthew & Autumn Hunter

“The setting Elegant and Classy Events created for our wedding was so breathtaking it felt like we were on a secluded island.  It was like the weddings you see in movies and soap operas.  I never would have thought of some of the ideas Sommer came up with in such a short period of time, and I never would have thought Matthew and I could have afforded the type of wedding we had.  Our friends and family still talk about it!"

Elegant and Classy Events set up an intimate beach wedding for Matthew and Autumn's ceremony and an outdoor reception area surrounded with gorgeous white fabric and intimate lighting .
