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!
Celine and I go way back.. I’ve known this cutie since she was a weee-one. (Click here to see)
We have been waiting to have a snow shoot for 2 winters now and when the forecast showed snow for Saturday I knew this was our chance!! Celines awesome mommy Tara could not join us for the shoot but her rock star dad Raul braved the weather. Man was it COLD but the smile and excitement on Celines face made it totally worth it. We jumped, played, sled, tried to make a snow man, snow angels, and simply just enjoyed a white covered Central Park. 🙂
Last night the Mrs. and I saw Emile Sandé live at Webster Hall. My friend Cruz has introduced me to her music about 6 month ago and I instantly fell in love with her soulful voice. The scottish singer has amazing vocals and songwriting skills. She’s huge in the UK and I have no doubt that she will be taking over the charts here in the states soon.
