PARIS WEDDING PLANNER: WORLD-CLASS EVENTS
Hi, I’m Chantelle, Founder and Executive Proposal & Wedding Planner with Kiss Me in Paris.
Nothing brings me greater professional fulfillment than creating beautiful, personalized, and infinitely memorable experiences for my couples.
I’m fortunate to be around people for some of the happiest and most significant occasions. It’s a great honor and awesome responsibility to help inspire and bring their fabulous visions to life. Their unbridled enthusiasm during the planning process and heartfelt appreciation along the way make being a proposal and Paris wedding planner amazing.
Yet, I didn’t start on this path … a former Wall Street maven turned entrepreneur, I believe a career should be spiritually fulfilling. It’s about mind-body living, positive thinking, generous gratitude, loads of fun, and not taking life or myself seriously.
I’m a wife, Mom, sister, daughter, pet parent, and loyal friend.
My passions include fashion, food, design, music, and travel.
I try to connect with people on a deep level, where inner beauty reigns supreme.
I believe in eating cake … because what’s life without cake?
My perfect evening is to be with friends and family, sharing laughs over a yummy meal with free-flowing red wine … deep into the wee hours of the morning.

what I love about Paris
Imagine cruising along the Seine night, stealing a kiss under a sparkling Eiffel Tower, strolling the Tuileries Gardens, getting lost in the cobblestone streets of Montmartre, and ducking into an intimate, candlelit restaurant that seems to beckon lovers … Paris is indeed the most romantic city in my mind.
my tip for the best event planning experience
Trust in your proposal & wedding planner. You hire her for her local expertise, proven experience, and ability to communicate, organize, and execute. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!
favorite proposal spots around Paris
when you have the budget, go for an exclusive rooftop overlooking Paris or for a romantic chateau just outside the City. Otherwise, I love the Seine Riverbank with the Eiffel Tower as your backdrop … lit up against the deep blue sky.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but rather that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” — Marianne Williamson
For anyone reading my review, Kiss Me in Paris is hands-down the best and most reliable company of them all. This year, I decided to ask my girlfriend to marry me. I had planned every last detail, but literally, two days before our engagement, the company I initially hired called to say they could not make it anymore. Imagine how I felt, having spent so much time planning, renting a car to bring friends from Amsterdam, and just preparing myself for such a life-changing moment.
But then there was Chantelle, my guardian angel! Well, I did not know that before, but certainly, I did after my experience. Totally stressed, I reached out to Chantelle. After my previous experience, I was unsure how to trust her to arrange everything in less than what, 24/48 hours? But let me tell you guys, the warm welcome and the phone calls gave me hope that I could still pull this off. And pulling-off, we did! Chantelle arranged EVERYTHING, came up with brilliant ideas, conceived of an even better proposal concept, and dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s for me. I swear I could not have asked for a better companion to help me with this than Chantelle. In fact, the entire team was spectacular with a big shoutout to Scander, our Paris proposal photographer.Malek Jubrail
For anyone else struggling to find the best people to help with your surprise proposal, I highly recommend Chantelle and Kiss Me in Paris.
I was unsure how to best surprise my soon-to-be fiancée while visiting Paris. With only a few days left to nail down the details, I discovered Kiss Me in Paris and its in-house Paris proposal planner, Chantelle. Oh WOW, did they deliver! Our engagement was magical, surreal, and even better than we could have imagined. Now married, we regularly reminisce about Paris, and how important Chantelle was in making our dreams come true. I cannot recommend her and the company enough.Jonathan McNabb
Words cannot describe the experience I had with Chantelle and Vincent from Kiss Me in Paris. I knew I wanted to propose in Paris, but I didn’t know where to start. Somehow, I stumbled upon Kiss Me in Paris, whom I immediately reached out to them for help. Not knowing what to expect, Chantelle made the process fun and straightforward! If Chantelle was not by my side every step of the way, I’m not sure we would have had the proposal we did. She and I spoke on the phone many times and chatted at length throughout the proposal planning process. She was super responsive, easy to talk to, and warmly welcoming!
I’m sure Chantelle had several sleepless nights as she worked tirelessly to ensure my marriage proposal would be special and unique. On the day of the engagement, she showed up in person to the proposal spot to coordinate every detail with our photographer/videographer, Vincent. Thank you, Kiss Me in Paris—especially Chantelle—for making our proposal so magical. Vincent was the best photographer in the whole world! He took spectacular pictures of us throughout Paris. Our friends and family always tell us that the photos appear to be straight out of a magazine! Finally, Kiss Me in Paris provided a video (beautifully set to music) that touched and amazed us!
My fiancéé and I count ourselves lucky to have had the chance to work with Chantelle and the entire team of Kiss Me in Paris. A proposal in Paris was my dream, and Chantelle made my dream come to life. You will not find a better company out there. Thank you for everything, and we hope everyone stays safe during these unprecedented times. We promise to visit soon!Manthan Davé
Wow, where do I start? The entire Kiss Me in Paris team was fantastic!
We worked with Chantelle, the company’s main proposal and wedding planner; she’s an absolute blessing—one of the best people you’ll ever work with! She will take care of anything you could possibly ask for: violinist, photographers, fabulous locations, gorgeous flowers … you name it, and Chantelle will make it happen. For the gentlemen planning a surprise proposal … she also happens to be a great scriptwriter.
A marriage proposal only happens once, and so I’m thrilled to have had Kiss Me in Paris and Chantelle support me along the journey.Akshay Dalal
Kiss Me in Paris truly helped make my surprise proposal a unique and unforgettable experience! My fiancee and I (girlfriend at the time) booked a winter vacation to Paris, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to propose coming out of Covid. At first, I thought I could handle everything by myself. Still, some constraints made it challenging: the holidays, rainy season, and some hunches of things my fiancée would be particular about. So, I reached out to Kiss Me in Paris three weeks before our proposal date.
I actually spoke with two other companies, who suggested I stick with a few tried-and-true ideas. At Kiss Me in Paris, Chantelle worked directly with me, and she was nothing short of amazing! We discussed multiple proposal ideas; she pointed out important considerations such as traffic, noise, ambiance, and cover to help keep things a surprise. I was super-worried about rain and was appreciative that she patiently worked with me on backup plans. Luckily, the sky ended up perfect.
Extremely grateful to Chantelle for going above and beyond to make sure everything goes well, especially during the holiday season! Planning, communication, and execution were all so on point.Michael Wei
