Specializing in planning uniques weddings and other special occasions

My name is Shirley Burt and I have been planning and directing weddings for over 20 years. In recent years I have added the planning of housewarmings, birthday parties, anniversaries, and family reunions to my duties. My approach to planning any event is to make it unique to the client(s) that I am serving. The client wants something that is special and my goal is to give them both special and unique.

Over 20 years ago, I planned and directed my first wedding, at the request of a niece-to-be. Since then, I have directly many weddings, planned retirement, anniversary, birthday parties, and family reunions. Most of my knowledge has come from reading and research. Just recently I chose to complete the course in event planning from QC School of Event Planning.
I am also a retired social worker which has given me extensive experience in working with the public, both privately and professionally. I am married with 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren. I enjoy traveling in my spare time, which affords much opportunity for obtaining new ideas and information to use in my planning business.


Services offered including planning and/or directing your event. I am available to do the entire event from start to finish or portions of the event. I locate or assist with locating resources for any or all of the components of an event, whether it is a wedding or some other affair. Once an initial interview is conducted with the clients, a contract and plan of action for my services are determined by the clients’ wants and needs. Fees are based on the services requested and to be provided.
