I had a dream, literally...
It is funny how this came to exist, it literally came from a dream. Years after starting my special event business, I started to feel unfulfilled and had no idea why. I had a random call from a soldier who wanted to propose and marry his girlfriend within 24 hours of calling me I took the challenge and produced a very sweet an intimate popup wedding for them.
About 2 weeks later, a dream of a group wedding happening on Valentine’s day came to me. I quickly jumped out of my sleep and scribbled what was similar to a step by step blue print of what is now known as PopBliss!
It took over 3 years of trial and effort, research, investment, passion, support and manifestation before we got to the point of producing the very first celebration which debuted in New York City Spring of 2016.
