Services Offered
EPIC Event Specialists offers three wedding packages to accommodate couples at every stage in their process.

During this meeting, they will establish a realistic timeline and budget, assist in deciding colors and themes, make vendor recommendations, and more. For clients who prefer to make all their own arrangements but want someone to ensure everything runs smoothly, Month-of Coordination is the best fit. This option comes with a meeting three months ahead of the big day, timeline creation, liaising with vendors, help with on-site deliveries, cleanup, and more. The company also offers an All Inclusive Package that guarantees to take care of all the details. Event styling, including exquisite lighting, floral arrangements, and dining décor, is also available.
