DO YOU HAVE RECOMMENDED VENDORS?
It's important to us that your wedding is personal and showcases YOU, so while we have a long list of trusted vendors who we partner with regularly, we always welcome working with new vendors!
WHAT AREA(S) DO YOU SERVICE?
Atlanta + The Southeast (although we're always up for an adventure - contact us for information on booking outside of the Southeast).
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER?
Your wedding day is an incredible life event that you and your groom will treasure forever. Our job as wedding planners is to insure that your focus is enjoying the process, instead of stressing over it. Hiring a wedding planner will not only alleviate stress, it will assist in providing seasoned professional advice, a curated list of trusted vendors to choose from and a sounding board for any questions throughout the planning process.
HOW FREQUENTLY WILL WE TALK?
Something that makes us unique is that we offer unlimited phone/Skype/in-person communications upon booking with us. We understand that every client is different and has different needs and schedules, which we are happy to accommodate. Our office hours are Mon-Fri, 6:00-9:00 p.m. and by appointment on weekends when we're not onsite coordinating a wedding.
WILL YOU ASSIST ME WITH MY BUDGET?
Absolutely! When booking a Full Service package, BURKE | DESIGN + PLANNING provides complete budget management services. Upon booking, we'll sit down together to discuss your needs, wants and expectations... defining what the top priorities are to you and your groom. After we've discussed those elements, we will build a custom budget built to show a detailed account of all the elements that go into planning a wedding, along with realistic estimates.
I'M NOT SURE I NEED A WEDDING PLANNER, BUT I DO HAVE QUESTIONS AND NEED ADVICE... CAN YOU HELP?
Certainly. We currently offer wedding consultation services to assist with answering specific questions, recommending vendors, etc. Please reach out to us for more information on this service.
WHY BURKE | DESIGN + PLANNING?
BURKE | DESIGN + PLANNING sets itself apart by focusing on relationships. Our relationship with our clients, our relationship with our trusted vendors and of course, the relationship between a bride and groom. At the end of the day, your wedding is far more about your marriage than it is about the sparklers and red velvet cake and cascading greenery... but if we can help create an inviting, peaceful and creative environment to highlight that marriage all do so with seamless coordination, than we believe you and your families are able to revel in your relationships the way you should on your big day and all the days leading up to it!
