Hi, I'm Sydney! I'm a New Yorker, now Florida transplant since 2014. A lover of the outdoors and sun worshiper, I LOVE my Florida life.

As a hopeless romantic, I have always had an affinity for weddings and romantic events. Ask me about the time I went to the fish market in my grandmother's classic 1950's ball gown wedding dress (side note: I was 7). 


Over the course of my career, I've planned everything from Auctions, to Carnivals, Weddings, Proposals, Kids Parties... and more. I started Popped Event Planning in 2018 with the mission to help couples create uniquely nontraditional celebrations.


We've got lots to celebrate, so let's get planning!

Hey, I'm Zarna! An Orlando native (for those of you who are curious...yes, Mickey is a great neighbor!) that found her calling as an event planner in Miami. 


As a seasoned event professional, I have planned all types of events from social to corporate but I have to say weddings are my favorite! What can I say, I'm a sucker for love and the small details that make your event unique and memorable!


Let's make your vision into a reality!

Hi there! My name is Leah, and as a Tampa native, I have always been a lover of all things nature. Anything by the water or involving plants (my apartment is practically an urban jungle), count me in! 


With my love for organization, attention to small details, and creative eye for aesthetic design, event planning has long been my love language.  I have fond memories of gathering my grandparents and family around a makeshift table with lawn chairs and balloons to throw a surprise birthday party for my dad in our backyard, as an 8 year old! 


I can’t wait to make your dream day come to life!

Leah Feeney

Wedding Coordinator

Hello! I'm Crystal, originally from the South, now living the Florida dream. I love the sunshine, the community, and the outdoor lifestyle. We live in Paradise!


Spanning 20 years, my career in hospitality and event planning has enabled me to visit 50+ countries (and counting!) 


From these experiences grew a passion for creating unforgettable weddings.


While taking cues from different cultures, the artful, the old, the new, the textured, and the organic, let's create together a memorable event that will reflect your unique love story.
