Southern Elegance Events

Our Philosophy

Every wedding is a story

We think every wedding and every love story is special. We love weddings, big or small, indoors or outdoors, whatever your dream is.

Every detail will be thought of

We are there by your side to help get you through the harder times of planning and help you celebrate the good times. Then, on your wedding day, we take care of the tiniest of details, direct and oversee every vendor; and make sure things run like a well oiled machine while you dance the night away with your friends and family.

Every couple deserves luxury

Over the course of the engagement, we’ll get to know you both, so we can guide the event exactly as you would wish. Every bride and groom deserves to live in luxury for their wedding, so let us provide that luxury for you.

Meet Nikki & Alicia

Nikki
CEO & Head Planner
Nikki is a Southern girl from the start. Growing up the southern midwest, she’s a yes ma’am, no ma’am, sweet tea kind of girl. She’s known for her parties and hospitality, and loves utilizing those skills for her brides and grooms. She’s a wife, a mother to a little boy, and a dog lover. She loves the Florida State Seminoles and the Indianapolis Colts, and is a perfect lady until football season. She knows how to get things done to keep an event flowing seamlessly, while also making every guest in the room feel completely welcome and at home. After minoring in event management at Florida State, and planning her own 200 guest wedding, Nikki became a certified wedding coordinator. She and her husband founded Southern Elegance Events in early 2012. Since then, the business has grown and flourished and become a unique and well oiled machine. While the company specializes in southern charm, they also take pride in the ability to make each event reflect the couple’s personalities and vision, and flow flawlessly from beginning to end.
Alicia
Junior Planner & Floral Design
Alicia is a west coaster by birth, but spent her formative years in Florida. She moved to West Virginia for college (Go Mountaineers!) where she was a design major while also working for a large catering company. She obtained a lot of experience with multi tasking during events, and also honed her creative eye. Combined with her professionally trained ballroom dance background, Alicia brings a fabulous design skill set to the team, and is the resident in house floral designer.
