à propos de Avec Amour by Mel, coordinatrice jour j, about me

BONJOUR ! I am Melanie, but you can call me Mel.

I was born and raised in Paris, a proud Filipina and a true French (well Parisian) at heart. I am also a wife to my Husby (who is my rock!) and a mom to my boys, Liam & Lenny.

Since my young age, I have always been immersed in lots of events – family, friends or church – whether it’s a birthday or just a gathering with good food and singing karaoke, you know where to find me. I loved being part of the planning and especially seeing the people around me having a good time.

Where everything starts

One day, a bride straight from the Philippines contacted the company where I used to work as an event coordinator. Long story short, I found myself coordinating the wedding ceremony to the reception – I was only 21! At the end of that wedding day, I remember feeling so delighted for them – satisfied and content. Since then I knew that celebrating and helping couples on their most special day would also genuinely bring me on cloud nine.

Your favorite moment during a wedding ?

Each moment is my fave ! But happy tears is one of a kind, specially when the couple discovers each other for the first time.

Spread love everywhere you go,
let no one ever come to you
without leaving happier.

– Mother Teresa

What do you do when you’re not coordinating ?

I love reading (when I have time), listening to my favorite podcast « Abiding Together », getting lost in Paris, boxing is my happy therapy and call me crazy but ironing relaxes me ! Haha

What I like

A good cup of coffee, dark chocolate with a hint of salt, watching FRIENDS, a sunny but not too warm day & spending quality time with my boys !

With me by your side, you can offload the stress of managing details, timelines and unforeseen challenges on d-day. 

This allows you to focus on enjoying the moments with your loved ones and specially with your futur husband/wife.

We chose Mel as the master of ceremonies for our wedding reception because of her energy, enthusiasm, and expertise in weddings. She kept our guests entertained and was able to improvise as needed. Thank you again, Mel, for saying YES and bringing such a wonderful atmosphere to our wedding evening.
