Styles with Charm is a creation of two friends who realized they shared a common interest and passion for planning stylish events! Perhaps it is a coincidence that both our names are Charmaine, but we’d like to think otherwise. Together we combine our skills and expertise in design, marketing and project management and use our creative finesse to deliver to you a range of fun, stylish, and whimsical party packages. Our end goal is to create your desired vision into a celebration you, your family & guests will remember forever!
Charmaine Lowe has been able to fulfill her passion for designing beautiful experiences. She attended the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana and received a Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies and later received her MBA from the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business at DePaul University. She has continued the position on fostering creative talent through the years as an Architect and Project Manager. As an Architect, Charmaine has shaped environments for many years. She strives to create an ambiance where you can escape to the theme in which we have created.
Charmaine is a perfectionist and loves anything pink, sparkly, and chocolate. She lives in Bolingbrook, Illinois with her wonderful husband, Matt, and their three sweet girls Savana (4), Olivia (2), and Aubrey (2).

Charmaine Bonilla, co-founder of Styles with Charm, has always dreamed of being in fashion or anything involving design. She loves all things lace, pearls, anything purple, rose gold, Parisian, damask and shabby chic. She loves to sketch during her spare time and absolutely loves helping her friends with interior decorating. When it comes to fashion, she loves anything girly (heels, florals, jewelry) but she also loves to immerse herself in a lot of other activities. She is active in a bowling league, golfs in the summer, plays piano and cello, volunteers her time for fundraising events and loves to ride her motorcycle when the Chicago weather allows! She is a registered full-time nurse in the home health field and has worked on the rehab floor and long-term facilities. Since the age of three, she has always wanted to learn how to fly a plane!
Charmaine strives to bring the freshest ideas to our client’s events while keeping in-sync with their vision and budget.
