Years ago, I worked with a variety of planners while serving as the Director of Catering for a pair of Dallas venues - none of whom met my expectations. Pretty end results were often achieved, but the process of getting there was anything but.
Stress, chaos, missed details, forgotten seating arrangements, and overlooked opportunities were the status quo. I knew there had to be a better way to make big things happen.
A collaborative spirit. Trustworthy guidance. Smart decision making. Streamlined planning. Boundary-pushing designs. Superior craftsmanship. Honest communication. And a ton of fun every step of the way. That's our promise to you.
“Excellence is never an accident.
It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution.”
Sometimes we’re sweating it out while building a tent at your private ranch, solving math puzzles to get the chandelier height just right, obsessively aligning dining chairs, or taking out trash at the end of night because the caterer overlooked it. Our attention to detail goes beyond pretty design, and layers into the care we take while executing for you.
With nearly two decades of industry experience, Molly’s reputation for event planning excellence is unrivaled. After graduating with a degree in Hospitality Management from the University of North Texas, she jumped straight into the world of over-the-top event production while assisting a celebrity wedding planner - and never looked back.

she took my dreamy romantic vibe and transformed that into reality!"
"Molly is unbelievably creative and has the best taste in the world -
In 2015, she poured her accumulated expertise in floral design, catering direction, audio-visual components, and live show production into the founding of Pop Parties. Her highly-trained team produces more than 40 events per year and is regarded as one of Texas’ premier planning firms for creative weddings, social gatherings, and corporate events.
Molly has executed luxury events across the United States and in the Caribbean, worked in conjunction with the White House Chief of Staff, and had the pleasure of assisting behind-the-scenes for events featured on national television. The hands-on leadership and “whatever it takes” mentality that Pop Parties is known for starts with Molly, making her an invaluable partner for your celebration.
As a small town girl, Jenna didn’t realize event planning was a viable career path until she enrolled at the University of North Texas. A class in special event management shifted her sights from law to hospitality, and she’s been immersed in the industry ever since.
-Kristi, Mother of the Bride
Jenna walked us through every little detail, and there was absolutely no stress involved! And best of all, on the wedding day we didn’t have to lift a finger.”
“Jenna said she could give my daughter the wedding of her dreams and she gave us so much more!
Prior to joining Pop Parties, Jenna gained extensive experience while working in catering and event staffing for a country club in North Texas. She further developed her eye for patterns, textures, and event design while working for one of the nation’s leading linen retailers. Jenna has personally executed more than 100 extraordinary weddings and events and has been with the company since its founding in 2015.
Her love for detail, solutions-oriented mindset, and fun-loving personality make her an incredible asset to her clients. On that note, don’t be surprised by the mix of professional communication and hilarious commentary you’ll receive from Jenna - she’s secretly always working on her stand-up comedy set.
Born and raised in Allen, Texas, Addason’s driven personality, knack for organization, and reputation for taking control of her family’s vacation and party plans were early indicators that the event industry was for her. Having decided on her career path, Addason attended the University of North Texas to play volleyball and pursue a degree in Hospitality Management.
Addason’s 10 years of industry experience include working in a high-volume production environment at Ashton Gardens and Noah’s Event Venue. Her ability to listen to her clients’ needs and put their ideas into action make her an ideal event planner, and superior service is her signature.
A lifelong member of Chi Omega Fraternity, Addason enjoys attending networking events for members of the wedding industry whenever possible (so if you see her out and about, be sure to say hello). When she isn’t working at weddings and events across Texas, she’s spending time with her husband, their daughter, and their firstborn - a fur baby named Riley.
Addason’s attention to detail and direct but nurturing communication style make her an excellent wedding planner.
She never misses a beat, and always takes great care of her clients.”

They were extremely accommodating, (last minute RSVP no shows or add-ins) and even helped with the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Many vendors often commented that ‘we are in good hands.’ The entire wedding day Molly and her team were calm, cool, and collected. They are extremely professional with the perfect touch of excitement for the big day. We literally looked up and it was all taken care of for us. Thank you Pop Parties!
