Hi, I'm Charlene. I discovered my passion for weddings and events when I helped with decor and set up in a large church. I pursued my passion by taking college courses on wedding consulting and coordination. I went on to earn my Planning Certification through American Association of Wedding Professionals (AAWP). It's my absolute joy to work with you to create a memorable wedding or event. When I see that big smile at the end of the night, that is my reward!
I love my family. I have grandchildren in Utah and doing videos via Marco Parlo is priceless. I also have family in Delaware and they mean everything to me.
It took me many many years to find my soul mate. Chuck and I married in 2014 and are living happily with our ShitZu, Molly, in Parkville.
I am also a licensed minister and we're very active in our church so my faith is of the utmost importance.
Chuck is my Partner in Your Day Your Way LLC. He loves weddings and in particular has fun creating templates and operating our Mirror Photo Booth.
When Chuck and I first met, he really wanted to help me with weddings so he became our "pack mule" as he described himself. He was a lot of help opening and unpacking boxes and packing up at the end of the night and carrying the heavier items.
When we talked about getting a photo booth, he was really excited. So, I said "okay but it's your baby!" And .. it is!
Chuck has an amazing way with people - he can get anyone to smile or laugh - he's just easy. He has a blast with our photo booth!
Chuck loves gardening; he creates wonderful flower gardens as well as vegetable gardens for us in the Spring. He likes getting his hands in the dirt and says it's real therapy for him.
Chuck and I married in 2014 and we live happily with our Shih Tsu, Molly.
Tia joined our team in 2017 and what a wonderful addition she is! She came onto our team with a love for weddings and a strong desire to be involved in coordinating the bride's day.
During the day she works as a Dental Assistant and on the weekends she's not helping with weddings, she's spending time with her 4 children and her new husband.
She and Keshawn got married in our gazebo in May 2020. Like many brides, they had to postpone their own wedding until 2021 and decided to have a mini-wedding at our home. I married them in our gazebo and we had a cake cutting, toast, and first dance. Her photographer got amazing pictures! Their celebration will be in September 2021.
Tia took my wedding coordinator course a couple years ago and she is very capable or running and coordinating weddings on her own. My brides love her energy and personality! She hardly ever turns me down for taking a wedding because she truly loves weddings! She does a fantastic job!!
She lives in Baltimore City with her husband, Keshawn, and 4 children.

Charlene from Your Day Your Way gave me my start in the business and I will be forever grateful to her! Charlene's experience is out of this world! She listens to couples as they describe what they want and asks all the right questions to gather information that they might not have known they needed or even wanted. You cannot go wrong hiring Charlene!
A great woman to work with when planning your Special day! Can't say enough great things about her!
Highly recommended. Reliable, reputable and rea$onable. Attention to detail is extraordinary.
