Highlights of 2013

Epic Event Planning by Jessica & Kourtney has had our BEST YEAR in 2013 in our 4 1/2 years of being in business!  We are thankful for the many opportunities that we’ve had to assist in planning events “that will make history!”  We are also very happy to have met new, wonderful vendors as well as working with many that we’ve depended on in the past!

The best way to describe is by showing many of our events through pictures!

Added to the simple, yet elegant baby’s breath lining the ceremony chairs, the new concept of opening the seats to all was shown through this great sign “Pick a Seat, Not a Side.  Today We’re All Family!”
