The primary goal of any event we plan is to make the guests feel something. From the time they receive a personalized invitation to the time they walk into the room and beyond - we want them be moved - to feel special, considered, and loved. That attention and care is ultimately a reflection of our clients and what the people in their circle mean to them. Whether a corporate party celebrating its employees or a wedding celebrating a union of two families, the recipe is the same. Personalized, intentional details alongside seamless logistics and one of one designs that challenge the status quo.
In the realm of events, Karen Landis stands as a beacon of expertise and insight. With a flair for merging creativity with strategy, Karen has cultivated a reputation as a sought-after wedding and event planner. Her well-rounded, methodical approach to planning events is rooted in understanding a client’s core vision and translating it into memorable experiences. The resulting events tell client’s stories through impeccable design.
Beyond her professional prowess, Karen’s genuine passion for storytelling and her commitment to authenticity make her not just a planner, but a great friend in the process. No matter when you choose to book Pop + Fizz, the brand she has built is the compass that will point you toward an unforgettable event.

A Chicago native, Payton moved to ATL and joined the team in 2016. Her wardrobe consists mostly of black, but don’t let that fool you. Payton has a keen eye for detail, a flair for edgy creativity, and a deep love for carefully curated color. When she’s not spending her time planning epic moments for her clients, she's training for a race, curling up with a coffee + her latest read, or learning a new trade for her next home improvement project.
Originally hailing from sunny Florida, Kayla joined the Pop + Fizz team in 2023. Creating above-and-beyond magical moments for her clients and sparking joy is what she loves most about wedding and event planning. Her creative instincts and caring personality shine in every event she touches. When she isn't planning weddings, Kayla paints for her local art gallery, writes, and enjoys staying active through dance, hiking, and pilates.
Overjoyed for the celebrations and goodness to come!
Kayla joined the team after graduating from SCAD.

Our clients are diverse in their backgrounds, upbringings, and educations. They are people who enjoy the sunshine, but appreciate the rain. People who love to enjoy dinners in new places, honor family traditions while creating new ones, and fill their cup with great conversations. People who can find as much joy couching with Netflix as they do dancing the night away. People who appreciate every moment because life and its intricacies are dually magnificent.
Each year, we donate a portion of our profits to organizations that are near to our hearts.
Charlie, Dansby, and Maisy are the fur babies of our office. They motivate us and cheer us on in their own little ways. We love the work Friends of Animals does to save animals from exploitation.
The only thing Karen craved while pregnant was Wendy's fries and that's how she learned about Dave Thomas's Foundation - by reading the bag. Karen's and Payton's families have had wonderful adoption experiences. This organization is doing great work to match families with children in the foster care system before they age out of foster care.
