hosted by Melanie & Co. Productions 

Hey, there! I'm Melanie: the Party starter at the Bruncheon, Events Director, Wedding Planner + Designer! I empower Soonlyweds to plan the wedding of their dreams with education and inspiration while connecting them with local wedding experts.   

In 9 years, I've produced 900+ weddings and events, went from Intern to Events Director, and now BOSS. In that time, I've had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Instagram, Interscope Records and Dior Makeup to name drop a few.

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!

this is not a wedding expo

The Bruncheon Wedding Party is an intimate, fun informative Wedding experience designed with you in mind. 

There's NO booths, instead we invite you to meet Wedding Experts through Q&A Panels, and connect with them over Brunch and Bubbly. 

We're PITCH FREE! Our Experts won't overwhelm you with their pricing, promotions or their accolades. Instead they will teach you tangible tools and foster genuine connections.   

Did we mention there's an After Party?! That's right, after Brunch we throw you an EXCLUSIVE daytime after party to celebrate you planning your freaking Wedding! That's where you can chat with Experts you gravitated to, eat cake and kill it on the dance floor! 

At the Bruncheon, you can always sit with us! We welcome every single love bird to join us and we would be so honored to play a small part in your special day! 

I need this. Sign me up!

don't take it from us. here's what past GUESTS have to say!

"Melanie curated a team of amazing vendors and created an event that felt more like a chic day party instead of a wedding expo. It was the most chill wedding event 'Ive ever attended. Vendors mixed and mingled with couples in a relaxed setting. There was also a series of panel discussions where wedding pros educated attendees on various wedding topics like, photography, videography, beauty, bridal fashion and more. Oh and did we mention the delicious brunch! (that's what really sold jimmy on this event)"

- C.K. Alexander  Bride & Senior Features Editor of Black Bride Magazine


"The Bruncheon is a wonderful experience, an opportunity to meet so many couples in such a lovely and relaxed environment, everyone is enjoying themselves and the panels are fun and informative. Instead of walking away overwhelmed couples walk away reassured and ready to plan. Melanie is a joy to work with, we had never met before, but one conversation on the phone and I knew I wanted to be a part of her event. So joyful and genuine, her energy draws the best people and she works to build community all around her."

 - Sophie Ballmer of Sibyl Sophia
Floral Design

Instead of walking away overwhelmed couples walk away reassured and ready to plan.

"You have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with some of Los Angeles' top wedding vendors in a low pressure atmosphere, in addition to delicious food, strong mimosas and great music. It is extremely informative, yet fun. A great addition to the wedding planning process!"

- Bibi Quiles
