We’re the Chancey Charm team, we lean on cloud-based planning and our custom online planning tool to meet our brides where they are: from hometown to destination affairs, let’s make planning a stress-free process.
Katie Werkin has been an integral part of the Chancey Charm team for six years, starting her wedding planning experience in Atlanta before moving north for her husband to finish residency. With a team of dedicated planners by her side, Katie now serves as Chancey Charm’s NYC Wedding Planner and Coordinator. Katie and her team are proud to offer affordable wedding planning and coordination services to all of NYC and the surrounding area.
Katie’s work and expert planning advice has been featured online and in print in national publications such as The Knot, Reverie Gallery and Brides. Her strong southern roots, as a native of Mississippi and University of Southern Mississippi alumna, make her the perfect planner to help orchestrate a wedding that truly treats guests to an unforgettable and luxurious experience. Her feminine, classic touch is balanced by a love for all things Kate Space and penchant for modern spaces.
Katie and her team of planners love working with New York clients and top wedding vendors. A few of their favorite vendors include Bride and Blossom, The Hudson Hotel, Park Avenue Armory, The Met and Jeremy Harwell Photography. She has a special love affair with exploring all the unique restaurants and cafes the city has to offer. And always enjoys spending an afternoon with her sweet husband Jacob and spunky pup Bexley.
What is not to love about a wedding! Weddings are filled with beautiful dresses, amazing flowers, good food, and so much more. My absolute favorite part of a wedding is knowing that family and friends are coming to surround a couple with their love and support. I love looking out over the reception and seeing people laughing and dancing the night away. At that time, no matter how much my feet hurt or how many hours I have been working, it is the best time of the day. It always reminds me why I love this job so much. I always feel so honored that someone would choose me to be such a big part of the happiest day of their life! – Katie
