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 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 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.
