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!
Meet Zara Lynne White.

She is the littlest ‘little’ to grace my blog.
I had planned a special trip to Orlando just to meet this little one.. She was enjoying her time in mama’s belly that she made her appearance 5 days after he scheduled due date.
She was worth all the wait! 🙂
Because she was not even 24 hours old we had to shoot in her room at the Winnie Palmer Hospital. Surrounded by her awesome parents and grandparents we were able to get some incredible images.
When I walked in to Liz and David’s home it was like walking into a Z Gallarie show room. It was so beautifully and tastefully decorated that my mind just started racing with ideas of where to shoot. 🙂 Liz was so relaxed and open to all of my suggestions that I knew for the start this shoot that it would be amazing and flawless.
They are already awesome parents to their adorable Yorkie Bentley. He was curious to what we were up to and I couldn’t stop laughing at how insistent he was to join the fun.
Baby girl is scheduled to arrive on May 3rd and I can’t wait to see how cute she is!!
Liz and David you guys are amazing!
Thank you for letting me capture this special time in your lives.
