ECLECTIC & BOLD
Heather alana - Owner + Creator
Heather is a proud Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2010. Whoop! She is a greater Houstonian married to her Aggie Sweetheart (and event assistant, Henry). Heather spends her days raising their three lovable gremlins, Coraline, Hank and Augustus, collecting moments, dreaming up creations and avidly hunting for treasures for her sister company VESTIGE EVENT RENTALS! Her designs tend to lean more toward the bolder side of things, emphasizing on vibrant colors and contrasted images - encouraging clients to step outside of the box and incorporate things uniquely "you".
With a love for traveling, food and learning about other cultures, her and her hubby have dubbed themselves amateur globe trotters, and you will often see Henry tagging along to assist with events (especially for those in need of someone fluent in Spanish!). After only knowing each other for five months, they took off for a month galavanting across Arizona, Colorado and Las Vegas - four-wheeling, hiking (and some gambling) - exploring everything the great outdoors had to offer! It was this month long, impromptu road-trip that solidified their bond together. Their honeymoon was equally venturesome spanning a month across Greece & Italy (and a random evening in London). Between the two of them, they have travelled to other places such as, Mexico, Cuba, China, Thailand, Puerto Rico, St. John - to name a few! Heather utilizes her vast knowledge of travel, expansive industry connections, superb organizational skills and "go-with-flow" mentality to help clients searching for a planner that is flexible to go "where the wind blows".

MaryBeth is originally from Corpus Christi, but did most of her growing up in Cypress, Texas, where she graduated from Cy-Fair High School in 2014. She graduates in May from Texas A&M University with her bachelors degree in Floral Design and Event Planning. She has worked at many event venues, in retail floristry and as an event coordinator. Through these experiences, she has found great joy in helping brides achieve as many of their wedding goals as possible by creating custom floral designs for their big day! After graduation, her primary focus will be her new Associate Florist position under Urban Rubbish. But will remain our hands on associate coordinator for an added helping hand.
Some of her favorite things include: Jesus, her HUGE family, fiance-Garrett, siblings-Katie, Julie & Jack, cactus, & Dr. Pepper!
Katherine joined the EPOCH team Fall of 2017. She is from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and one of the hardest working people we know. You can always depend on her to know exactly what is going on with her thorough checklists and detailed planner. Katherine is currently a student at Texas A&M University with graduation set for May 2019 with a degree in Event Planning. You can commonly find her helping plan her sorority events, working campus activities, studying diligently, or helping her family business back home...and occasionally modeling for our photoshoots. ;-)
Her kind soul and beautiful smile can't be beat and we look forward to seeing where her journey with us leads!
