Michelle Burke is a California born, Georgia raised, twenty-something who’s love for timelines, a well-set table and a bouquet full of fresh flowers led her to chase her dream and become Founder & Owner of BURKE | DESIGN + PLANNING.

Raised in a family who valued time around the table, Michelle grew up appreciating the small details, like good lighting, a well stocked bar and good conversation... as it was in the details that gatherings were so special and memorable. 

Michelle got her start in the corporate event industry and along the way, she steadily fostered her dream of building her own brand and business... and so was born BURKE | DESIGN + PLANNING.

When she's not in wedding and event mode, you might find Michelle exploring the Atlanta Beltline with her goldendoodle, Lou, or sitting on a porch somewhere with live music and a glass of Cabernet.

Above all else, Michelle loves nothing more than creating experiences that lead to life-long memories for her clients. Seamless planning, a calm demeanor, consistent communication and flawless execution are all things that lead Michelle's clients to become dear friends and trusted partners.

“The heart of hospitality is about creating space for someone to feel seen and heard and loved. It’s about declaring your table a safe zone, a place of warmth and nourishment.”
