CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!
We’re so glad you’re here and can’t wait to help you get started on your wedding planning journey!
Now that the post-engagement high is starting to give way to the exciting (and kind of overwhelming) reality of planning the most amazing day of your life, we’d love to come alongside you and be there to help you manage all of the details that go into planning your big day. Our goal is to make this process as stress-free as possible so that you are able to be fully present and enjoy every moment of this incredibly special time with friends and family.
We love talking with our NYC couples about how they met, where they went on their first date, and which niche of the city is their favorite. We use these details from their lives to design a wedding that integrates the important locations from their love story into their one-of-a-kind New York City celebration.
Arranging all of the details that go into a wedding, especially if you or your guests are traveling into the city for your wedding, can be overwhelming! That’s why we love giving our NYC couples access to our suite of online planning tools and virtual design boards, making planning from afar stress-free!
We have also curated a group of top-tier wedding vendors in the area that we love to recommend. A few of our favorite venues and vendors include: The Hudson Hotel, Park Avenue Armory, The Met, Sawyer Baird Photography, and Jeremy Harwell Photography.
Our clients never waste hours of their lives scrolling through The Knot looking for the perfect team of wedding professionals, because we’ve done the hard work for them. Our goal is to create an unforgettable guest experience AND a stress-free wedding planning process for our clients.

WHAT MAKES OUR PLANNING PROCESS UNIQUE:
Wedding planning doesn’t need to be stressful. In fact, it can (and should) be exciting and fun! Our goal is to give our clients an incredible planning experience and to make this entire process as enjoyable as possible.
In order to do this we offer our brides support in both “Full Planning” and “Month-of” capacities depending on the amount of assistance they need. But no matter how much support a bride chooses, she always has access to our incredible suite of online planning tools.
Our goal is that all of our brides feel relaxed and calm from “Yes!” to “I do!” knowing that they have an extraordinary team of planners and designers behind them every step of the way!

MEET THE NYC TEAM
Chantal enjoys handling the complex logistics that are a natural part of her couple’s wedding day. Details are her love language, so finding ways to incorporate them into her designs is one of the keys to her signature style.
Despite being a wedding lover from the start, Chantal almost didn’t follow her dreams into the industry. Instead, she chose to pursue a more “logical” career path and become a lawyer after deciding that being a wedding planner was just a pipe dream.
But being a lawyer didn’t feed her passion for creativity, and Chantal decided to make the leap into working in the wedding industry. Five years later, she knows she has found her purpose in life and loves being a part of her client’s special day.
When she’s not planning love-filled celebrations, you can find Chantal cheering on the Yankees or enjoying time at the beach. And when the weather doesn’t cooperate, she’s often been spotted rummaging the bargain bins at Target.
Alexa’s love for weddings started young and she has been involved in over 75 weddings at this point in her career! While still in high school she became an assistant to one of Long Island’s top wedding planners which gave her the opportunity to work at prestigious venues like Oheka Castle and The Garden City Hotel. Over the past 10 years Alexa has worked for planning firms of all sizes, and has served in every capacity imaginable from being the right hand woman to a solo planner, to working on a large team in a corporate planning environment.
After earning her BBA in Management and Event Planning from LIM College, Alexa continued working in the fashion industry despite the fact that her heart was really in events. In order to feed her passion for the world of weddings Alexa would freelance for NYC planners on the weekends. Eventually,she was unable to deny that weddings were her true love and accepted a full time position as a wedding planner at the Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa. Her depth of knowledge about the industry combined with her eye for fashion makes her a huge asset to our brides and we’re thrilled to have her on the Chancey Charm team.
Katie Werkin has been an integral part of the Chancey Charm team for over six years. Her designs have been featured in several top-tier national publications including: The Knot, Reverie Gallery, and Brides.
Katie started her journey as a wedding planner in Atlanta before moving North when her husband needed to finish his residency. As a native of Mississippi, and a University of Southern Mississippi alumna, Katie’s Southern roots make her the perfect planner to orchestrate a wedding that treats both the couple, and their guests to a luxurious event experience. Her feminine, classic aesthetic is balanced by a love for all things Kate Spade and an affinity for modern spaces.
When she’s not planning weddings, Katie has a penchant for exploring new restaurants across the city, and loves spending a lazy afternoon with her sweet husband Jacob and their spunky pup Bexley.

Are you ready to hand off the stress of planning and connect with a professional planner that can make your dream wedding a reality?
Even though we are a national brand, all of our locations are served by local planners–including our NYC team. This is so important when you are planning your wedding in an area with such a large array of vendor and venue options like we have in NYC. Our team will do the legwork for you by curating a select group of wedding professionals that are the perfect match for your needs.
As we mentioned above, we are a national brand with local roots meaning that our team has access to multiple mentors and a team of luxury wedding planners across the country to help with sourcing and problem solving as they plan your wedding. Our planners also have back-end business support behind them so that they can focus on planning your wedding, without having to worry about the business tasks that take their attention away from planning and orchestrating your big day.
Finally, our design board + sketching process make our planning and design services one of the best parts of the process.
We created this package for our clients because we are absolutely devoted to an exceptional level of service, and that kind of attention to detail takes time. With our “month-of” package we’ve found the sweet spot that allows us the right amount of time review the details and ensure that there will be no issues on the wedding day, while providing our clients with an enjoyable experience.
Our team specializes in full-service wedding planning and design which provides our clients with comprehensive guidance and expertise throughout the planning process. This package is completely customizable based on how much support you’ll need throughout the planning process.
Custom design work is an integral element of our full-service package. We love to offer creative direction and inspiration throughout the entire wedding planning experience.
Our planners work closely with our clients to develop detailed online wedding design boards which lay out every detail you’ve chosen for your wedding so you don’t have to be anxious knowing exactly what your big day will look like.
Our team is comprised of professionals who have made planning your wedding their full-time focus. We respond to emails and calls within 24-48 hours during normal business hours M-TH. Our weekends are typically spent orchestrating events or spending time with family, so we will respond to any inquiries first thing when we get back into the office on Monday.
We believe that communication is a key part of our success. So, rather than charging hourly, we assess your needs during our initial consultation and determine a flat up-front fee that covers all of your planning needs. This fee will never increase later in the process, allowing us to truly serve our clients with excellence.
We adore our NYC destination clients! Our custom, online planning system ensures that all the details are covered, and also allows our clients to watch the progress of their event in real time. This online planning system makes planning an event with our clients fun and easy, even if it is from a destination location.
Great question! We plan weddings throughout the five boroughs of NYC. From Central Park vows with live music, to a rooftop ceremony with a view of the city skyline–the possibilities are endless. We are also happy to plan events outside the city as well. So if you’ve been dreaming of a September wedding in the Hamptons, we’d love to make that dream a reality!
We are also happy to plan a destination wedding wherever our clients would like to venture to, and we often work with destination clients internationally. So if you are based in NYC and want to bring your planner with you to a different destination (foreign or domestic!), we’ve got our passports ready and our suitcases packed. For more info on planning a destination event click here to head to our International events page.
WE WORK WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST!
At Chancey Charm we understand that having an amazing team is one of the keys to a successful event. This philosophy is one of the cornerstones of our brand, and is illustrated by the close relationships we have with some of the best wedding vendors in the five boroughs.
