Best day ever!
Sharon was amazing and I am so glad I hired her! We had our wedding at the Hills Private Estate, a venue where only Sharon has exclusive access. The venue was amazing and Sharon had every detail nailed down to a T. We had some unexpected surprised come up, but Sharon was right on top of it and quick to think on her feet and keep our day moving. She was truly amazing and very communicative throughout the entire planning process, as well, and was always happy to take my phone calls to talk through whatever new detail I wanted to discuss. We truly bonded with Sharon throughout the entire process and threw her plenty of curve balls (aka. a bounce house), and she did an amazing job at working around the clock to make our vision come true and capturing our day perfectly. She is fun, funny, smart, patient, and incredibly kind, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything, Sharon!!Sent on 11/17/2019

A dream wedding come true
Sharon did an exceptional job bringing my fiancé and I’s vision to life on our wedding day. We were planning a big jewish destination wedding in Petaluma (from New York) and relied on Sharon heavily to assist us in the planning and coordination. Sharon had a ton of patience in working with us especially when we were indecisive. She was always reachable via phone, email, and text whenever we needed her- we literally spoke to her every day (even 3 times a day) for 14 months. She was extremely reliable and was an excellent partner throughout the process. She gave my fiancé, myself and my mom a lot of relief in planning our wedding from a distance. On the day of, everything went very smoothly because Sharon had it all under control! Sharon exceeded our expectations- our wedding was a dream and Sharon helped make this happen. We loved working with her and would highly recommend her.Sent on 07/17/2019

Sharon Exceeds All Expectations!
You and your partner are planning the most important day of your lives. It can quickly feel overwhelming. Where do you start? Are your Google searches leading you to the best answers? Who can you rely on for help?Sent on 11/27/2018
We experienced all of these thoughts and feelings when we started to plan our own wedding. To add to our complexity, it was a destination wedding on the other side of the country. We knew we had to hire a wedding planner and there was no shortage of options in the Napa and Sonoma valley. We had a few calls with different planners, yet the minute we hung up the phone with Sharon Burns of Napa Valley Custom Events, we knew it was a done deal. We called her back within minutes and basically proposed to her to be our planner! It was a decision that felt so right; it proved to be the best decision of our entire wedding planning process.
Sharon’s experience, expertise and outstanding reviews all speak for themselves. She knows the business. She knows all the right people. She is well respected in the California wine region. She demands excellence from all those she works with. She has the ability to know when to fully support your wants and desires, while also adding in a dose of reality to your wedding dreams.
As a gay couple, one may think we posses a level of expertise on design, flowers and fashion. Sharon quickly found out this was far from reality. She filled in all of the spots where we were “weak” and supported or molded all the thoughts and wants we had in areas that were our non-negotiables. She helped us build, manage and stick to our budget throughout the 13 months we worked together leading to our wedding day. She maintained our vendor contracts, worked hard in negotiating hotel wedding blocks and even managed most payments throughout the whole process. So many of the stresses and mundane tasks of wedding planning and execution weren’t even on our radar as Sharon took care of them all.
We were already floored by all of her work done leading up to our wedding; then THE DAY came. Sharon delivered even more then we could have imagined! She was at our venue for well over 13 hours preparing, organizing, leading and even calming us throughout the event. We worried about nothing and got to enjoy everything. She ensured our whole wedding party was in place when they needed to be, our families were calm and relaxed, and, of course, that we were both smiling and enjoying every aspect of our day. Sharon even made sure that we were eating and staying hydrated throughout the most memorable day of our lives.
The day was simply perfect! So much of that joy has to do with Sharon Burns and Napa Valley Custom Events. We cannot speak highly enough about her; words do not do justice to the thanks she deserves.
Thank you Sharon, you knocked it out of the park!
I have know & worked with Sharon for years and it is always a great pleasure to work with her! Her attention to detail, experience, knowledge and calm demeanor will ensure your wedding or event is flawless.
