Author and Founder

Writer and Founder of Budget Wedding NYC and the Wedding Cake Taste-Off, CharLena, The (Intuitive) Wedding Doula Strategist for NYC, offers one-on-one Engaged Communication  to get to your authentic self BEFORE you even start wedding planning the budget conscious way.  (See Services tab) Besides wedding strategies Ms. Pearson-Fulcher offers and continues to educate and enlighten as host of two radio shows on www.BlogTalkRadio.com.

What is a “Wedding Doula”? CharLena is a non-therapeutic wedding coach who assists you, the engaged couple from the moment you are affianced through your marriage day or by providing emotional support through the oftentimes confusing period right after the engagement and even up to your first year or two of marriage. CharLena is here to assist the couple in thriving within their marriage and not becoming part of the divorce statistics, by providing strategies to stay married through emotional, practical and spiritual support.

CharLena pulls from her own experience and others of the blissful first year and the bumps that pop up during the second. Allow her to assist you in getting through the maze of newness, memory, renewal and back to understanding.

In addition, CharLena is a licensed wedding officiant who can also coordinate your wedding.

Don’t let anyone deter you from your wedding planning with budget restraints, it can be done, and here in New York City.  I know you’ve been told otherwise, because we were when we planned our wedding. It can be done.  For even more resources (other than reading), tune into either of the two radio shows. There’s the bi-weekly interview show with wedding or event professionals on www.blogtalkradio.com/budget-weddings-nyc. The other show is a weekly meditation show that assists in eliminating and releasing your wedding planning stress at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/meditation-with-charlena. In addition, you may sign-up for my weekly newsletter and receive the special report The 7 Most Important Wedding Questions for vendors.

She now offers One-on-One phone “wedding doula” strategies. (See her Services tab) for details and call for pricing:  917 5478 4870 or email her cpf@budgetweddingsnyc.com.

CharLena is a believer in divining what is her client’s desires and then going after it, which in the so-called “real world” is defined as being risky.  She feels blessed to be alive in this day and age while fully expecting to achieve what she desires, because she knows dreamers with intention can.  CharLena often says “Life in New York City feels like a house running on jet fuel, breaking up rocks (challenges) along the way and succeeding.”  With determination and inner belief as her guide, she knows she can, does and will find the best within anyone’s budget to wed here, because she’s done it in the past.  She feels blessed to continue sharing her knowledge with you as NYC’s budget wedding doula.  That’s her reality, what’s yours?

    Sometime you have to just go with your heart, after all it is your and fiance’s wedding. And if most people understood then you’re the winner.

    The grandmothers’ may not have understood it, but I bet they saw how happy you both were and joined in the fun and merriment anyway. Congratulations to you both!
