Meet Erika Sherek
Hi! I’m Erika, owner and principal planner of PlumTree Events. I have been planning and coordinating events since 1998, and weddings since 2008.
As an Event Planner in Montana, I specialize 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 you have on your plate, I’m here to give you the support and guidance you need.
I’m the bossy one! I am a team player and like to get as much input from everyone as possible so I can ponder the information and see how to make it all work.
Erika is a Certified Event Planner, Certified Professional Wedding Planner, and Professional Bridal Consultant.
A little bit more about Erika…
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. I’m a Certified Wedding and Event Planner in 2008 and 2009 respectively, and a 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 on an international stage. I then moved into a consulting role for fortune 500 companies and was in charge of events on a global level.
WAY back in the day, I spent a year in finishing school at John Robert Powers in Philadelphia. At the time it was something that I was made to do by my grandmother, and I am grateful for that experience. I’ve kept up on all the new rules, because, yes, there are some changes! I’m kind of on a mission to get people interested in the “proper” way to do certain things. I’m a stickler for a table setting!
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 I have a cat: Princess named Kitty Mui Mui we call Kitty or The Princess. And the newest addition to our family is a puppy, Daisy.
I work hard and I like to have fun doing it!
