Epic Event Center is EPIC!
Epic Event Center should be at the top of every engaged couples list to tour. The Epic team is professional, responsive, and most importantly understands that this is the most important day of starting your lives as a couple. They take the time to learn about you and your families, and in a way, welcome you into theirs. Working with the Epic team was absolutely seamless; this included recommendations on table/decoration placement, referrals to vendors, and providing unique accommodations as needed on the day of our reception. We were able to provide the Epic team with a list of our vendors and the coordination on the day of was handled in the background so the wedding party could focus on our big day. Absolutely nothing felt out of place or fell through; all of our expectations were exceeded. Epic is large enough to accommodate 300+ which was close to our guest list. No matter the size the building is beautiful ranging all from the changing of colors on the walls, the white lights that hang from the ceiling, the beautiful willow tree and pond out front, the gazebo and outdoor area with fire pits to the gorgeous stone decorated bar to pull the ambiance together for an EPIC reception! You will not be disappointed choosing Epic for your event, wedding, or reception.Sent on 03/28/2020

Absolutely outstanding service and venue
From the first time we toured, Epic was AMAZING. Not only is it a gorgeous space, but the owners are so professional, helpful, and accommodating. Karen and Jami and their families made us feel so welcome and taken care of at every point, when we were in the planning stages, during the big day, and afterwards. I am so glad we chose Epic Event Center for our reception venue. I can’t imagine having it anywhere else!Sent on 04/30/2020
