I founded pop! by Yaz to fully unleash my creativity and passion, and to share the breadth of knowledge and depth of experience that I’ve gained over the last 17 years working in the marketing and events industry, with some of the most luxurious and sought after brands such as The Macallan, Moet, Louis XIII, Benjamin Moore, Verizon, Patron and Vogue just to name a few. I translate my experience with brands into fully immersive and unforgettable experiences for brides.
In producing an intimate event of this nature, I wanted to ensure the tabletop reflected the couple’s personality. Rashad has a cool, classic approachability; while Shaquita’s femininity and softness purred the moment I met her. I wanted to blend both personalities into a look that was soft, romantic, but still very clean.
While Valentine’s signature color red is beautiful and striking, it’s also expected. I wanted to be spontaneous and romantically adventurous utilizing colors which already existed in their home with pops of unexpected hues. I first started off with the colors of the flowers, which were stunning. The soft lilacs felt feminine, while the orange hues provided the fresh take on the centerpiece. Their basil green love seat was a perfect addition to the table lending warmth and closeness for the couple. I am all for sitting next to your beau. I then layered on this lavender soft sateen table cloth, which provided a soft and pretty canvas for the tableware. I used his existing modern, white dinner plate and accented with an antique sterling silver charger and an antique silver rimmed china bowl. I brought back in the modern by using streamlined stainless steel flatware and classic glassware. Burlap wrapped votives and a chrome urn with candles and vines were the perfect finishing touch.
Tune in for Part 3!
So excited to announce that my recent styled shoot is featured on Style Me Pretty today!
I can officially use the badge! Woo-hoo
For the past few years I have been smitten with the concept of an elopement. Everytime I come across a couple who chooses this kind of wedding day I smile a little bigger. Don’t get me wrong I still love a traditional wedding day but I find something a little special in the choice of proclaiming your love and vowing a lifetime together amongst yourself or a chosen few.
A girl always dreams about her wedding and all the little details that bring everything together. From the flowers to the linens and the custom made name place carvings we wanted this elopement to spare no details. Lauren of Elle’s Couture Events and I teamed up together to bring an intimate elopement in Brooklyn to life. We knew that ICI Restaurant would provide the perfect backdrop to compliment our peach and earth tone theme.
I couldn’t have asked for a better team to pull this off!
