Many people recommend Shari Winstead for her event planning, officiating and emcee services. Read why they feel this way.

Shari did an amazing job planning our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah party.  She is incredibly detail-oriented, responsive, and organized.  She did a ton of legwork to research vendors and worked with them directly to make the planning process as stress-free as possible for us.  All of Shari’s hard work enabled us to enjoy our event as much as our guests!

Shari planned and managed many of our firm’s events for years.  I had the opportunity to work with Shari on several of those events, and I was always very impressed by her abilities.  She pays attention to details, communicates and listens exceptionally well, and cares deeply about her work and the success of the events she manages.  During events she is acutely aware of what needs to happen to keep things on track and to keep those in attendance at peace.  She foresees issues, solving problems before they happen.  Her empathy and concern for others are among her greatest strengths.  I would not hesitate to highly recommend Shari for any event or project.

As our professional event manager, Shari’s skills in executing events of all sizes were constantly put on display.  Whether it was a dinner party for 20 or a Celebration of Life for 300, she always went the extra mile to make sure every detail was meticulously handled.  Shari knows how to find the perfect venue and stay on budget, critical to any celebration!  Her communication skills and the relationships she develops with her clients ensure that your event will exceed your expectations.

Shari was the event planner for my Bat Mitzvah. She did an amazing job and made the day so special! She always came up with unique and cool ideas, along with always including me in the decisions. The event was perfectly organized, and she made it so enjoyable for everyone who attended!

I have attended many events, large and small, that Shari has organized—including my own. She’s incredibly organized, resourceful, full of brilliant ideas, and adept at putting everything into place in the right way at the right time. She handles it all with great care and always creates a truly exceptional experience.

Shari was a true professional and indispensable in planning the Celebration of Life for my close friend.  She easily understood the wishes of the family, offered great suggestions, and made sure we stayed on budget.  It was a lovely event that was just what we wanted.

Shari was a blessing for me when my husband unexpectedly passed away.  She found the perfect venue and organized every detail.  Her words as the officiant brought comfort and peace to all the guests.  Shari has a keen sense of intuition and is full of compassion and empathy.  I hope everyone has a “Shari” to help them through their loss of a loved one.

Having attended celebrations and other events organized and managed by Shari, I have seen first-hand her ability to ensure that guests are well taken care of and events well run. Whether you need someone to handle all the details of your celebration, or only a few, you can count on her.  She has an excellent understanding of what is appropriate for each event and will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy.

Shari understood perfectly how we wanted to honor my husband.  She did an amazing job on the slideshow that was a beautiful tribute to him.
