Elite Wedding Planning

Elite Event Services is a small, family-owned business created with the purpose of providing professional yet personal services in support of weddings and events. Our Elite Planning Coordinators have extensive experience, and work very hard to execute your vision and create a memorable wedding day. Tony and Kristina Daugherty, husband and wife team, started Elite Event Services together in their living room. They met while working at The Magnolia wedding venue, and were married there in May 2020! Kristina has been in the wedding planning business since 2013, and has been instrumental in the planning and coordination of weddings at the Magnolia Wedding Venue, Castleton Farms, Marblegate, and many more venues around the area. Tony and Kristina created Elite to bring their unique experience, expertise, and family-first values to the service of wedding and event centers throughout the region. They have continued to grow as a company, with their new office located in Pigeon Forge and adding additional wedding coordinators and assistants to their family.
