Andrea Eppolito knew from an early age that she wanted to plan parties. While still in high school, she began planning Sweet 16 Parties and school sponsored events. Andrea was introduced to the wedding industry at 15 when she took a weekend job helping a vendor host a bridal fair.
Having relocated to Las Vegas while still in high school, Andrea continued to work in the hospitality industry as a hostess in the Forum Shops at Caesars. While attending college, Andrea offered her special event planning services free of charge to other students in an effort to sharpen her skills and build her planning portfolio.
At the age of 21, Andrea opened The Bellagio Wedding Chapels as the youngest coordinator on staff. Two years later, seeking a new challenge, she joined the Catering & Convention Management Team at The Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino. During that time, Andrea partnered on a series of high-profile events, one of which earned a Special Events Gala Award, 2002.
That award would be the first of many.
Through the years Andrea has contributed to the success of a number of Las Vegas venues, such as the Hyatt at Lake Las Vegas, AquaKnox featuring celebrated Chef Tom Moloney, Sushi Roku & BOA Steakhouse, both of which hold numerous Epicurean Awards.
Today Andrea Eppolito is the owner and Chief Designer of Andrea Eppolito Weddings & Events, specializing in weddings and social functions in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she lives with her family.
“When all is said and done, I am not selling food, or a view, or anything tangible. I create environments and experiences that touch all of the five senses. Entice the senses while providing exceptional service, and you turn an experience into a memory. It’s the promise of those memories that move me each day, inspiring me with each and every event I plan.”
