Chariolett Marie

Founder and Lead Planner

It is my privilege to be able to do what I enjoy every day! Planning events came naturally and from an early age, before I even knew it was a thing, I wanted to be a part of the world of hospitality. With 22 + years of experience, I’ve planned and managed events with as many as 70,000 guests in attendance.

As the face of this company, my passion for excellence motivates an investment in continuing education and connections to a team of event professionals who share the same standards of excellence. I am dedicated to curating events inspired by your personal style, transforming events to an experience.  

I am a proud Baltimore native with roots and culture rooted in Jamaica. My parents exposed my siblings and I to a world of travel, diversity of cultures and people. I have a twin brother, a sister, and younger brother. 

Some of my personal life inspirations: love, experiencing different cultures and people through travel, spending time with family and friends enjoying great food, nature, music, laugher, and YOU!! 

I can’t wait to meet you!
