    Look no further for your coordinator!

    We chose Charlene for our "month of" coordination, and although we unfortunately had to postpone our wedding due to Covid-19, we have been so grateful to have Charlene's help along the way. She is extremely responsive, organized, and thoughtful - she's happy to give advice or recommendations, but is extremely focused on what you want and how she can help support you/ make your day a success. She was very accommodating and helpful during the postponing process - can't wait to work with her on our wedding day!

    Memorable intimate moment!!!

    Wow! Where should I begin. Our wedding day was very intimate and special. The most beautiful and perfect day! Thank you so much Charlene for Officiating our intimate ceremony, providing the space, treating my family like you would your own and the amazing decorations to top it off! I had a beautiful aisle to walk down created from hooks of hanging gold potted flowers, and leading into the gazebo (where we said our I Dos) was rose pedals on the ground. The cake table alone was a masterpiece. It was such a beautiful day God blessed us with and to have you available to provide intimate wedding ceremonies at this crazy time is favor! Your Day, Your Way are great people filled with peace and love!

    Your Day, Your Way (Charlene) is helping with planning and coordinating our October wedding of 100 guest. With the pandemic and things being so uncertain, my now husband, Keshawn and I decided we were ready to tie the knot. Although, we still plan on having our October wedding if the law permits, Charlene was not allowing us to have a courthouse ceremony. Charlene and her husband Chuck opened the doors of their home for Keshawn & I, plus 10 family members. They have a beautiful backyard with a screened-in gazebo, fenced in yard and beautiful flowers. Charlene planned this day from beginning to end staying in close contact and adding things that were special and important for us. If an intimate wedding is what you're looking for and you'd like it to be a lot nicer than the courthouse's in and out ceremony you've found the right place and people to execute.

    Your Day Your Way!'s reply:

    Tia, Chuck and I had so much fun preparing for our first mini-wedding with you and Keshawn! Everything turned out really nice and you were beautiful. I feel like it was a very special day in the midst of the COVID crisis. Yes, there was NO WAY I was letting you do the Courthouse! Can't wait for your big celebration in October!!

Charlene Gallagher

Charlene Gallagher

Certified Event & Wedding Planner Specialist, Owner

Hi, my name is Charlene. I establshed Your Day Your Way in 2002. I absolutely love planning events and weddings! I love listening to my cleints' visions and then bringing them to reality.

I worked at Towson University Foundaiton for 18 years as the Executive Assistant to the Vice President of Finance. I was fortunate that I was in a workplace that knew I had a business and a passion for weddings and allowed me the flexibiity to work those weddings. I left this position in 2017 and am following my passion of wedding and event planning full time.

To plan a wedding takes many skills. First listening to our clients is the first step in determining their vision. Then, the planning and negotiating skills kick in. I have always been a very organized person and organization is a must to plan our client's most important events of their lives!

The most important thing to me as that my client is happy and stress-free and pleased with our service.

Day of Coordination and/or Month of Coordination is our specialty. We meet our clients along the way of their planning and offer advice and make sure nothing is forgotten. We develop a very detailed timeline for the day. This makes for a very smooth and stress-free day.

I personally like to plan the weddings and events from beginning to end and leave the day of coordinating in my very capable associate Coordinators' hands. I still work with my day of clients on gathering all their important details and in development of the timeline.

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. We married in 2014 and are living happily with our ShitZu, Molly, in Parkville. Chuck loves helping me with weddings and he actually operates our Vision Me Mirror Photo Booth.

I am also a licensed minister and we're very active in our church.

Chuck Gallagher

Chuck Gallagher

Owner, Operator, Vision Me Mirror Photo Booth

Chuck has co-owned Your Day Your Way with Charlene Gallagher since 2015. He loves weddings and in particular has fun creating templates and operating our Mirror Photo Booth.

Chuck has an amazing way with people - he can get anyone to smile or laugh - he's just easy.

When we are coordinating weddings, Chuck helps us unpack boxes and bins for set up, he gets the items to the tables for us come behind and make it pretty. He helps us pack up at the end of the night. He has also worked as a Greeter to help direct the guests where they need to go. He has set up many many yard games! He fills in any place we need him. He laughs and says he's our "pack-mule". But he also has an incredible way of fixing things. If we get stumped during set-up, he's always ready with a solution.

Chuck fills out our team very well.

He currently works at Johns Hopkins Hospital as a Biomed Tech and is retiring in December. He plans to promote our photo booth after he retires.

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 live happily with our ShitZu, Molly, in Parkville.

Tia Sturgis

Tia Sturgis

Associate Coordinator

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.
