We are still reliving our wedding weekend and it brings us so much joy thinking about it and to hear our relatives tell us how much fun and how beautiful the whole weekend was. It was so perfect, and if there was anything that went wrong, we di...
dn't know it. And we know it couldn't have been that way if it weren't for Ashley and the Epoch Team! Even through some last minute stressors and all of the curve balls and questions I asked, Ashley always had a positive response and attitude, and was always on top of all of the information! She went above and beyond to make sure we got what we wanted. I'm sure you have to have a next level organizational skill for the work that they do, so kudos for that! Thank you, thank you, thank you - we can't say it enough.

I'm confused by all the great reviews here. Our wedding coordinator was Heather. My only guess at what happened is that she overbooked herself and decided to completely ignore us. She also seemed aggravated that we did not use her list of pr...
We probably only spoke with her for three total hours through the entire process. We made all the reservations, gave all the vendors information, answered all the vendors questions, created the timeline, etc. She did nothing. In fact, the only thing she really did do was raise false red flags, argue about our vendor choices, and disagree with our decorator. We had to keep asking her to do things, or to even talk with us, and the majority of those requests were met with no response, or 1-sentence-long snarky responses a week afterwards.
Even scheduling a call with her was very difficult. All of our calls were scheduled on her time, because she only had about 30 minutes of availability per week to talk, and all of our calls got cut short because she had somewhere else to be. One time her assistant started the call with us because she was about 20 minutes late.
Believe it or not this was the "whole shabang" option. We never felt like she knew what was going on with the wedding, even during the wedding. She was often nowhere to be found. She gave me chores the day of our wedding. We were told only a couple hours before the wedding that we needed to go to Copy Corner to pick up and pay for some prints that we had discussed several weeks ago. Then about 30 minutes later after I was on my way there we got another text saying they just needed us to call and pay for it immediately, her assistant was waiting at CopyCorner to pick it up. She just seemed unorganized, unprofessional, uninterested, unavailable, and inexperienced through the whole process. We paid far too much for what we got.
Examples of some things that definitely should have been done by the coordinator but were not:
-A week before the wedding our decorator reached out to us and told her she had not been given the floor plan yet.
-A week before the wedding it was first brought up that there was not enough time before the ceremony to set up decorations, and we'd need to purchase additional time from the venue.
-We gave her the files for the table numbers and seating charts to be printed at Copy Corner. After hearing no response for 3 days we did it ourselves.
-A day before the wedding our venue reached out to us and let us know we were missing required wedding insurance
-Leftover food, cake, wedding favors all were not even mentioned to us. In fact there was zero communication from the moment the reception send-off began. No thank you, no congratulations, no good luck, nothing.
I would not recommend this company to anyone.

To me, it was MY honor to work with Heather and her team. Heather is any version of what you need her to be, and I was sold after our first hour long call when I was trying to decide if I needed some coordinating help. I remember that conversat...
ion mostly because of one thing she said at the end" "if anything, on your wedding day, I will be the person to look at you before you walk down the aisle and remind you to take a deep, calming breath and to enjoy every second that is to come". Such a simple sentiment, but it stuck. I am SO happy I made that decision because more than anything at our wedding, we felt like we were surrounded by vendors turned wonderful friends. Apart from the five-star professionalism that Heather brings to everything she does, she has FUN and it is so apparent in her work. Making this decision will be the best one for your big day. You can see it in the photos of their end product and feel the wave of relief when seemingly small things are taken off of your plate. Epoch is the way to go, and I can assure you you will leave with a friend who has heart-felt, genuine JOY for the best day of your life. Priceless, to me!!!

Heather also made a special trip out to our venue to meet with us for a design mock up meeting - above and beyond! Our initially outdoor wedding day was just as special as I’d always dreamed despite torrential rain and flooding thanks to the hard work of Epoch Co+ team. Heather worked with our venue to confirm use of an alternate building for our ceremony, worked through the new logistics of the rainy day, and SO many other things that I am not even aware of. Can’t forget all of the wonderful styling she did with ceremony and reception set-up. She was so calm throughout all of this and the wedding ran incredibly smoothly! It was the best day ever.

ning a wedding or just how much it really entails.
We provided a “vision board” per se of the styles and colors we liked and they took it, ran with it, made it even more amazing, and made that vision a reality. They stayed on top of every single detail, answered all our phone calls and texts promptly, and every meeting felt as though we were meeting with friends.
Seeing Heather the day of our wedding was just as emotional for me as seeing my family, I truly love her. Both my parents said, “man, we should have paid her more!”. My dreams came to fruition because of this team and there is not a single critique I have for them.

As a bride planning a wedding in the midst of the dumpster fire that has been the year 2020, I was stressed from the get go.

She was our best friend during the 30 days leading up to our wedding and helped us take everything in stride. Since the wedding, I’ve been asked on several different occasions what our best investment was for our big day and I will say over and over again it was hiring Heather and her sweet team!

swing a month before my wedding making sure we had the timeline mapped out to a tee, any and all details covered for. I even met with my bakery for my cakes within the month of our wedding and she had told me that Heather had already taken over and communicated with all my vendors not to reach out to me throughout the month of our wedding! It was actually so nice because they were all in communication with Heather and if there were any questions from them, she was the sole point of contact that would communicate with me about it. Then came the challenge- Coronavirus. Exactly a week before my wedding, 3/14/2020, restrictions started. It became very clear about 4 days before our event that we would need to postpone. Throughout those 7 days leading up to our event and cancellation, Heather was SO hands on gathering EVERY SINGLE VENDOR’S availability for new dates. I’m not even kidding when I say that we had about 5-10 options for new dates and Heather communicated seamlessly. I was literally SO stressed and not stressed all at the same time because Heather had it so under control! I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her and it even solidified the need to book a coordinator for me. Once we had our new date of July 3rd, 2020, Heather collected all of our new contracts with our new dates and encouraged us sending us messages about our date and how everything will be fine. As a bride, it was nice to have reassurance. About a month before our July date, Heather went into full swing AGAIN. We pretty much had everything already planned out, but with cases on the rise again and fear increasing, she was so great about making sure that every vendor was still in line and continuing to encourage my husband and I about our date. Our wedding went off on 7/3/2020 and Heather and her team were ON IT! It was literally seamless. They helped set everything up, and I literally didn’t have to lift a finger on the day of. We had lots of last minute changes just to make sure we were social distancing (like cancelling the money dance as well as having to provide our own alcohol with bars shutting down!) and Heather had the timeline and everything down to the minute! I literally told her last minute things day of the wedding and she memorized everything and was able to make the night so seamless. I HIGHLY recommend the team at Epoch because our wedding + the postponement wouldn’t have been the same without their help!!

lity to come through in my wedding. Heather made that happen. Our wedding looked and felt like me and my husband, but so much more beautiful than we could've put together. We gave her our aesthetic tastes in the beginning, and she ran with it. I will always remember how gorgeous our wedding was. It was unique and had a boho/texan/artistic feel, nothing like all the other weddings I've been to (I'm not just saying that because it was mine!) Heather and her team just nailed it. Give her a little direction in the beginning so she knows your taste and she'll blow you away!
My husband and I both agreed that was money best spent toward our wedding, and we would go back and hire her every time. We both enjoyed our wedding day; we weren't stressed, we had so much fun and got to be present in the moment thanks to her. She handled everything; she'd check in with me on my opinions during the planning process, (but ultimately she had such great taste I deferred to her most of the time for all decisions (flowers, etc.)) and she booked and handled all the administrative tasks. She kept me punctual during planning to make sure we didn't get behind on booking vendors. If ever I was upset or stressed about something, she handled it so I didn't have to. I never thought a wedding planner would handle third party issues for you, but Heather does; she also counseled me through the whole thing! She was so comforting!
My husband and I had an idea of what we were getting into since we'd had family members recently get married, but there was so much we still would've been unprepared for if it weren't for her.. who knew if you wanted to hire a live band there's so much more to think about than just that; you have to have a DJ handle transitions, lighting guy, PA systems for the band. We were way in over heads!!!! Heather had so much experience planning she knew what we needed!
Heather's recommendations on vendors was spot on, she was so professional; there is a reason why there are wedding planners. It's completely overwhelming, and the stress of planning a huge party can take away from the joy of planning a wedding. Heather takes all that away. I loved every minute of planning my wedding with her to the actual day of. I knew I could trust her to handle the good and the bad. My wedding was the best day of my life. Heather took the burden off me and my family so we could actually enjoy it. Michael and I are eternally grateful to her and her sweet team! Please hire her and let her plan your dream wedding for you!!! She's worth every penny!! She will work her cost into your overall budget; go for it!

our budget on a planner the answer is YES. And if you are wondering who, Epoch & Co. Is the way to go. I was definitely the girl who considered not getting a planner because I wanted to spend that money elsewhere, and next to saying “I DO” having heather easy planner was the easiest and best decision.
First off the checklist and platform she used to store info and all things wedding was critical to keep me feeling confident in the planning process. I had everything in one place and I knew what to do and when to do it to stay on track keeping my stress levels low.
Secondly, as a bride there comes a time when your day is arriving rapidly, and you kinda panic. Wondering if everything will look good and go smoothly, but for me those worries went away so fast because I knew that with heather and her team I had nothing to worry about. Heather treats every wedding as if it were her own. She puts her heart in soul into every wedding and at the same time she listens to her clients and makes sure that their dreams become a reality.
All of my vendors but 2 were recommended by heather and every single one was amazing and I would hire again in a heart beat. And when one of my vendors I chose had a hiccup she knew how to shift my timeline to ensure I still got everything I wanted done but to fit the situation.
Not only did Heather help me but she extended her hand for my family, anything they needed she was there. One of the greenery pieces was too long and a few guests couldn’t see through the table. So what did she do, she saw something was wrong picked up some scissors and started chopping. This seems small but it’s the little things she does that mean the world.
I will highly recommend Heather to any and every Bride. If I ever have a major event heather will be my girl. I know that our day would have been a mess without her and to have her on your team will guarantee you an amazing, beautiful and smooth wedding.
I love you so so much Heather. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family. I can’t wait to have you as a friend for a lifetime.

everyone was perfect. The ceremony went on cue and everyone was timed and spaced with what seemed like mathematical perfection. I am a very anxious person naturally, but with her genuine caring and her telling me “I’m on it” or “It’s done” - I can honestly say that the times I felt overwhelmed went out the window. Because if she says she’s on it, consider it done and done to perfection. You never know you and your (brand new) husband have no idea how to cut a cake until it’s time to do it in front of an audience. She was RIGHT THERE and told us “Slice, slice and stab”. You’d think we did it for a living, looking back at the video and pictures. She also saved me after my bustle on my dress broke! She carries an arsenal of ‘just in case’ items that put out multiple fires. I cannot put into words how blessed and thankful I am.
