THE bruncheon

Melanie

I'm the Party starter at the Bruncheon, an Events Director, a Wedding Planner + Designer! The Bruncheon empowers Soonlyweds to plan the wedding of their dreams with education and inspiration while connecting them with local wedding experts.  

Growing up, I had two passions sports and throwing parties. What do sports and parties have in common? They both bring people together. They're both bridges to connection, collective joy and excitement... 


As full-time Boss Lady and 9 to 5'er, I know first hand how overwhelming it is to have all the ideas in your head and no idea how to make them happen or where to start.

I created the Bruncheon to ease your overwhelm and make sure your know there is a community of local wedding experts who support and care about you. I can't wait to party with you in April!

Growing up, I had two passions sports and throwing parties. What do sports and parties have in common? They both bring people together. They're bridges to connection, collective joy and excitement. 

I created the Bruncheon in hopes it would be that bridge for connection, joy and excitement for Wedding Pros and Soonlyweds. 

Our goal is to educate, connect, inspire, and give Soonlyweds like you confidence + clarity to plan the wedding of your dreams. 

Cheers! 

Our goal is two fold educate, connect, inspire and give Soonlyweds and showcase local Wedding Professionals.

We believe knowledge is power and planning a Wedding is no different. When you are more educated in what it takes to plan a wedding, you will see the value and importance in hiring Wedding Professionals.

We believe in fostering  a genuine connections in a fun, informative, pitch free  environment!

 We believe in inspiration. Not only do we strive to inspire you through bold design and education, but in areas of your life that go beyond the planning.

 "through love, serve one another”
