Efficient, professional expert and lovely human being and team

Charlene Gallagher is not only a lovely human being, she is also capable, efficient, and thorough. This is exactly what I was looking for in my wedding planner. She took my idea of my dream wedding and made it a reality within 6 months at my dream venue- the BMA. Her style is simple and to the point-- no gimicks, no BS. From our first meeting she got into the nuts and bolts of my wedding day. I ended-up hiring her not only to plan my wedding day, but to plan all the events of my wedding weekend. Charlene's experience in the wedding planning business, as well as her relationships with vendors in Baltimore, made the entire planning process easy. My husband and I are full-time working surgeons with no availability or flexibility in our OR and call schedules. Charlene knew this up-front and worked around our schedules, coordinated meetings with vendors on our behalf, and kept our wedding planning on track. Her detailed timeline for the weekend was pristine, and everything proceeded with the accuracy of a Swiss train. I am forever grateful to Charlene and her team (yes, I see you Shantel!) for helping me coordinate the wedding of my dreams to my husband, in front of our friends and family. Thanks will never be enough.

Stress Reducing!

I used Your Day Your Way as a day-of coordinator. Charlene was quick to respond, thought of everything I needed to have ready ahead of time, and made any necessary changes. Tia was so sweet to work with day-of. She helped to keep the bridal party calm and things moving. Despite some hiccups she made sure things continued to happen and everyone had a great time!

Above and Beyond

We hired Charlene as a day-of planner. Throughout the 1+ year we worked with Charlene and her team, we consistently found that she went above and beyond our expectations. She provided so much useful advice to us every time we frantically sent her an email about one of our concerns (and we had a lot of concerns!). She helped us think about so many aspects of the wedding that we never would have thought of. She helped us nail down the timeline down to the minute which helped us feel at ease on the day. On the day of, we had both Tia and Shantel on site. Everything went about as smooth as I could have hoped for and they really ran the show and made everything very easy for us. We would absolutely recommend Your Day Your Way!

Charlene Gallagher
Charlene Gallagher
Certified Event & Wedding Planner Specialist, Owner

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 Gallagher
Chuck Gallagher
Owner, Operator, Vision Me Mirror Photo Booth

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 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.
