In high school, Charlene was that girl who secretly read wedding magazines in the corner of the library; fortunately, it worked to her advantage. As the owner of Sweetchic Events, Charlene knows that a wedding isn’t about her vision, it’s about yours. She brings your dream to life with finesse and passion, balancing logistical details with creativity and warmth.
Charlene started Sweetchic Events in 2008 to fulfill her long time love-affair with weddings. Charlene graduated with an M.B.A. in marketing and management from Loyola University Chicago and a B.S. from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. She is also a Professional Bridal Consultant with the Association of Bridal Consultants. For many years, Charlene worked in the hospitality industry, honing her organizational and customer service skills.
