About our guest:
Having worked a wedding show at fifteen, Andrea fell in love with the beauty, the timeless traditions, and the transformative qualities of weddings and events. During her time at UNLV, she planned weddings while working in restaurants and studying her craft. In 1998, Andrea opened the iconic Bellagio Resort; the first of many she would ultimately come to work with.
Andrea founded her eponymous event planning business, Andrea Eppolito Events, in 2011. In the years that followed, her work received numerous awards and has been featured by the likes of BRIDES, WedLuxe, Grace Ormonde, and more. Renowned for designing weddings with soul, and called “vibrant, chic, and impeccably organized” Andrea prides herself on the deep relationships she creates with her clients and partners.
A custom magazine she gifted to her clients went viral in 2016, leading to the creation of The Wedding Editorialist. This self publishing platform creates story-driven issues published both online and in print. The Wedding Editorialist believes that every story deserves to be told, and services couples, creatives, and venues.
Committed to collaboration and education, Andrea is a keynote speaker, eternal student, and eager participant in think tanks and book clubs. Born in New York, Andrea lived bi-coastally between there and LA before relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada. After over 20 years she considers herself “nearly a native” of the city she now resides in with her husband and children
