worth every penny

Popped events was great we had Tara and she was on point, knew what she was doing and took care of it all! Like most weddings little things come up and Tara was there to handle it, from setup, to ques for the ceremony and reception, cocktail hour, vendor management and clean up. Gave her a list and photos of setup and she made it all come to life. She was a resource of help before the big day, they kept everything organized for us and did a great job working with our other vendors. My Groom was particularly impressed by the little things she handled under the radar so quickly to make our day go without a hitch. Im type A (tend to micromanage) it was nice and weird to know she had everything taken care of and I could just focus on the day. I almost felt like checking on her to see if there was anything I could do lol! We even got this cute cookie box with our names and wedding date. Hopefully I never get married again but If I do Id hire Tara/ popped events again. It really is valuable to have someone who knows how things should flow and what you can press on.

My wedding day was perfect because of Leah!

From the moment I spoke to Sydney during my interest call, I knew Popped Event Planning is who I wanted to work with. Sydney provided solutions to my planning needs where other planners I spoke to could not. I knew at that moment, I needed this team to help execute my wedding day.

I choose the month of coordination because I had my vendors and most of the details locked in. With month of coordination, you actually get your coordinator 3 months out! That is when we met Leah. I cannot say enough great things about Leah. She helped with my final details, coordinated changes with vendors, adjusted my floor plan/rentals to accommodate a larger wedding for the space that we had, put together timeline and offered suggestions when needed. Leah was quick to respond, detailed, professional, and ALWAYS had solutions like Sydney did in my initial call with her. I would think of random things that other people worried about on their wedding day (card boxes/emptying cards in the box, handoffs at the end of the night, etc.) and Leah was always one step ahead of me and already had it taken care of/plan in place. Seriously, she is good at what she does!

I ended up renting my flowers and decor from
an online distributor and there was a lot of setup needed from the planning team. Leah and her assistant worked through all of the details and everything was absolutely perfect day of.

I am so happy I went with Popped Event Planning and cannot recommend them more. They are thoughtful in everything that they do thought out the planning process and after. In one of our take home boxes, we had a letter from Leah and personalized cookies. The perfect touch we received after our wedding.

My wedding day was perfect because of Leah. I did not stress about one thing and was able to enjoy it. Thank you Leah and Popped Event Planning!

Perfect picnic proposal

Popped Event Planning helped my fiancé pull off such a beautiful picnic proposal. He told me the ladies of Popped helped him with every aspect, from picking a location and finding a photographer to taking care of the setup and takedown of the gorgeous picnic area. They really focused on the small details like arranging for cookies with our initials and printing out a small paper that listed the day of the proposal and day we met.

I can’t recommend Popped enough and we will definitely be using them to help plan to wedding!
