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!

Adventures in Destination Wedding Planning

Las Vegas Wedding Planner turned Destination Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito talks the adventures of planning across state lines....
