    I would heartily recommend Charlena as a party planner. She has planned and coordinated the annual party for our choir for the last three years and has done a terrific job. She is very organized, creative and skilled at knowing what is needed and what resources are available and how to use them all to maximum advantage. She is very easy to work with and effective at joyfully bringing others into the process, and she handles or directs each part of the execution of the event with apparent ease, setting the tone and the stage for everyone to have a fun time. I would definitely use her services again.

About this pro

I believe ministering and performing wedding ceremonies is in my DNA. My father was a minister, as well. With the addition of volunteering as a Prayer Chaplain within my spiritual center, I believe this other factor leads to my intuitiveness of what each couple is desirous of fulfilling within their ceremony. I enjoy being part of their great journey of enlightenment through their wedding ceremony planning guiding their guests to experience their love for each while reshaping their love into a beautiful ceremony. Additionally I offer a one-on-one or for a weekend intensive, I request a pre-interview questionnaire to be filled out from each person, so I can receive a clearer picture of the couple. Even if we do not get to do the intensive the questions allow a larger understanding of the couple and their desires. Not to worry it is a fun questionnaire, that helps remind you of who you are, for and with each other along with your own personal dreams for the future wedding ceremony and beyond. I am a romantic, but also realize it takes work to stay connected to self and the other person. I enjoy guiding people to fulfill both. I also love finding out about the how and what made people fall in love with each other.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My standard is $80 an hour with a three hour minimum after our initial FREE first hour of consultation. That three-hour minimum includes two hours on the ceremony day. Beyond that I would need to know the parameters of the couples desires, before giving a final price.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to meet face-to-face. Talk about how they met, their hopes and dreams not only for their wedding day but also during their new life together. There are words or at least a feeling expressed during the ceremony that the couple joining together is forming a new community.Through that community, society heaps a lot of pressure on the wedding day, when it's really just the jumping off point into a new life together. I like to get to the heart of what they foresee as their new lives together. In that way I get a feeling of who they are and that helps me to assist them in your vows, if I am their officiant or in coordinating their wedding, if I am in that capacity.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I do a great deal of reading especially for mindfulness, mediation and alleviating fear. I am a Prayer Chaplain for my spiritual center. I am about to enter a Licensed teacher program for my spiritual center.
