“Some things in life are too strange and strong to be a mere coincidence” 

Some would say that the meeting of Sharon and Lane was a mere coincidence - from both deciding to attend law school in North Dakota and meeting at a mutual friend’s party on the last day of their first semester. However, when you dig deeper into their story, you’ll see that the universe had destined these two to meet and fall in love.

Two Grooms + Two Kids Equals One Gorgeous Engagement Session

Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito shares the engagement photos of Greg Flamer and Fletcher Whitwell by AltF Photography.

Fate brought them together and, ultimately to me.  Nearly 10 years ago Greg called the restaurant I worked at wanting to plan a surprise party for Fletcher.  The two had not yet moved here, but had their eye on the city.  I fell in love with them instantly, and while my career took me elsewhere before the actual event, I popped in to meet the men who would eventually become my two grooms!

When Anna and Angelo booked their October 31st wedding at The Mandarin Oriental, it never occurred to them that guests would assume it was going to be a Halloween-themed party.  But as the couple shared their date, it became clear that they needed to provide their family and friends with an "inspired" attire suggestion.  That's when they called me.

A Beautiful Backyard Wedding in Las Vegas for Anna Lyssa + DJ

Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito presents this beautiful backyard wedding celebrating Anna Lyssa and DJ Johnson.  Images by Altf Photography.

It isn’t often that I am hired as a surprise gift to a bride, but that is exactly what happened when the mother of the bride, Sandy, called to bring me into the planning process of her daughter’s wedding.  The bride, Anna Lyssa, is a corporate event planner for an oil company in Texas, she explained, and for once she wanted the bride to be free to relax and enjoy the process while having someone cater to her.  This idea, well, I just loved it!  But I also know how hard it is for us Type-A personalities to relinquish control and let someone else handle the details…no matter how much we may say we want to!

An Interview with Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito

An interview with Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito.

I can only say "Thank You" to Lighten Films for taking the time to put together this video showcasing some of the weddings we have partnered on together, and including a little interview we did while visiting at the Mandarin Oriental.

It's not very often that I am in front of the camera; I really prefer to be behind the scenes.  But I love that Terrence captured and included the excitement I feel while meeting new couples, and that he showed some of the behind the scenes moments that go into creating these magical, extraordinary days.

Celebrating the Engagement of Anna and Angelo

I always ask my couples to tell me about how they met, how they fell in love, and what their hope for the future are.  Many times, I find myself crafting this into a short biography that I can share with our creative partners and on my blog.  But sometimes, the couple turns in something so spectacular, that I can't even take credit for it, and I don't change a word.  Such is the love story of Anna Akopian and Angelo Langadakis.
