Why PlumTree Events?
Hi! I'm Erika, owner and principal planner of PlumTree Events. I have been doing events since 1998, and weddings since 2008.
PlumTree Events specializes in helping people, just like you, create, plan, and execute that wedding or event you've envisioned! Let us take out the guesswork and stress so you can enjoy your guests and your event. If you are short on time or just overwhelmed while trying to balance everything going on in your life, I'm here to give you the support and guidance you need so you can plan your wedding or event.
Having produced, planned and coordinated events for 2 decades, I spent the majority of my 20+ years experience working in corporate events, meetings, and parties. I've worked with some of the biggest names in the business to intimate celebrations with friends. Certified Wedding and Event Planner in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Member of the Association of Bridal Consultants. Certified 2018
I'm a little Crazy Aunt and a little Fairy Godmother. I love all things that sparkle and yes, I have a tiara collection; because you just never know when you need to feel a little EXTRA! I've been the bride, the mother of the groom, and the crazy aunt, so I get it!
In the corporate world, I started out as the Assistant to the Executive VP of an international travel company where I was put in charge of all company events. Over the years I planned hundreds of meetings, parties, retreats, kick-off meetings, movie premieres and trade shows. After a few years I took everything to the next level and became an Event Producer for Virtual Events and Webinars for Corporate America. I then moved into a consulting role for fortune 500 companies. After all this I worked for a software company and was in charge of events for the company on a global level.
I'm a lover of all animals. Except for snakes. I'm not a big fan of snakes. So if your wedding or event is out in the pasture and a snake is spotted, I will scream. I have a dog Cleopatra Queen of Egypt; we call her Cleo. And a kitten Princess Kitty Mew Mew we call; Kitty.
I work hard and I like to have fun doing it!
