principal planner, heidi's reviews

Heidi and her team are the best decision I made for my wedding! Not only was my wedding beyond my wildest dreams but her team was so attentive the entire night holding my train, keeping us informed of what was coming next, and always making sure we were happy. Everybody knows finding time to eat at your own wedding can be next to impossible, but Heidi made sure my husband had more than enough of his favorite foods throughout the night (the only thing he wanted decision making power over). Heidi is nothing short of perfect and my husband and I will appreciate her forever! We love you Heidi!
— Bride, Emily
Absolutely Incredible! The team at Ira + Lucy is amazing!!! I cannot say enough positive things about my beautiful wedding! I provided Heidi with a very vague idea of what I wanted (farmhouse rustic winter wedding) and she took my idea and turned it into an absolutely stunning evening!! Every vendor she recommended was top notch. Her team pulled all of the details together and the entire evening was flawless. I had several guests compliment the décor, the food, the cake. Literally, every detail was perfect. Thank you so much to the team at Ira + Lucy!!
— Bride, Laurena
Even though I had a bit of a head start in the planning process due to the fact that I knew lots of local wedding vendors and people in the industry, I could never have imagined how truly overwhelming it can all be! Just a couple months in, I realized that I there was no way that I wanted to do this alone (nor could I!) My fiance and I met with Heidi the owner of Ira and Lucy Wedding Planning and Design upon recommendation from our florist, and I am so thankful that we did. When we met her, she had this calming presence that I knew someone like me would need on our day. Being very type A and wanting to plan everything myself, I knew instantly that Heidi was probably the only other person in the world I would trust my whole wedding day to. On the day of our wedding, I woke up knowing that everything was being taken care of. Not by myself, not by my family, but by a professional design/coordination team!

I literally cannot put into words how perfect our day was. How beautiful it looked, how it felt to see all that you had pictured come to life. All in all, my husband and I had the best night of our lives on our wedding day. Because we hired professionals to help us out, we were actually able to enjoy our big day and throw our friends and family basically just a huge awesome party. People couldn’t stop raving about how gorgeous and fun it was, and really we couldn’t take much credit! While it was inspired by my fiance and I, it only came to life because of our vendors.

Ira & Lucy have been a pleasure to work with! I am the owner of Rhodes Entertainment and had the opportunity to work two weddings (so far) with Heidi and her staff. They are professional, detail-oriented and hard-working, yet very creative and lots of fun. A great skill set to have when orchestrating and designing an important day like a wedding. 5 Stars!
— Rhodes Entertainment
Heidi and her team were hands down the best team I have ever worked with! I had a vision and dreamed of lots of bright colors and fun details and Ira & Lucy put those dreams into reality! She went above and beyond what I asked of her and always checked in to see if I needed anything, if I liked a certain idea and she also always had a smile on her face! Very professional and experienced! I would recommend to any bride or anyone interested in planning an event but needing ideas, or talent, or organization!
— Bride, Nancy
When planning a wedding, it can be overwhelming and sometimes nerve wrecking! Heidi is so professional and focused on making your big day effortless, smooth, and nothing short of lovely. Her staff, decor, and teamwork is amazing. They definitely have a beautiful way of pleasing their clients & executing each event with such class! I highly recommended their company! Very professional and friendly!
— Blair
I cannot describe how valuable Heidi and her team are to a wedding. As a groom, I was skeptical because I thought my bride and her mother were more than capable of handling it. I was wrong! Truly blown away by the organization and skill set of her and her team. They took all my wife’s decor and made it look amazing. They kept the whole wedding moving smoothly as well from a coordination standpoint. We had many people come back and say it looked like a movie set. They were definitely worth the money and stress it relieved from us on our wedding day. Check them out! Thanks Ira and Lucy!
— Groom, Matthew
When I came to Heidi with some ideas for what I wanted (and needed in a week) she responded so quickly and was on top of it! She is a ninja event planner and knows how to put an idea together and make it a reality. Even with only a few days to put everything together, her design was exactly what I was looking for and even better with her creative, fine art style.
— Photographer, Jenny Losee
My daughter was just married this month in Eagle Idaho and we hired Heidi with Ira & Lucy to coordinate the wedding. This was by far one of the best decision I’ve ever made!! Heidi was not only extremely professional and helpful, she was a lot of fun and had so many creative ideas. I truley can’t imagine going through the stress of planning a wedding without the help form this amazing woman. Money well spent. I would recommend Ira and Lucy for coordinating and decorations to anyone planning a special event!!!
— Mother of the Bride, Denise
Heidi is not only a wedding designer/coordinator she is an angel sent straight from God. Heidi took every one of my ideas and she made them all become one amazing outcome! She isn’t afraid to tell you when something won’t work with your overall vision and that is something that I, as a bride, needed. She gave me support, direction, expert guidance, and she also was a great friend through it all. Heidi doesn’t just help you with your wedding day, she makes your wedding day happen! Give this girl a call and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
— Bride, Brie
Hire a wedding planner. Just do it.

Since Bry and I live in Denver, and our wedding was taking place in our home state of Idaho, we hired an Idaho based wedding planner named Heidi and her company’s name is Ira & Lucy. Heidi was an angel sent from the heavens, let me tell you. My wedding probably would of taken place in a Zurcher’s parking lot if it wasn’t for her. I know what you’re thinking, “Wedding planners are expensive” or “I’ll just DIY my wedding” unless you are Martha freaking Stuart you cannot physically DIY an entire wedding, unless your guest count is around 10 people. Hiring a wedding planner was worth the money, seriously. And especially if you’re getting married in a different state from which you reside.

SENIOR COORDINATOR, VICTORIA'S REVIEWS

We had such a wonderful experience with your company last weekend at Tamarack. Victoria was extraordinary under tough weather circumstances. She was the perfect blend of very nice and accommodating, but assertive when necessary. She had the diplomacy of a United Nations representative! We had to move all the tables inside a hall because of wind and rain, and back out again when sunshine returned. Can’t thank her enough!
— David Bettis
Choosing Ira + Lucy was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. We used their ‘Enhanced Day-Of Coordination’ package. We were on a tight budget and struggled with the idea of spending money on something that we couldn’t quite conceptualize, but felt very strongly about not wanting our friends and family to have to set up and take down our wedding. Once we met Victoria we realized why we needed her!! Always sweet and professional, she is an excellent problem solver and helped us with some major issues right off the bat. She would come over, check on us frequently, and took the time to get to know us. I literally want to frame the ‘concept boards’ she sent us - whenever the wedding seemed stressful I always would look at them because they reminded us of the important things we wanted, and looked like OUR wedding! On the wedding day, she and the team absolutely delivered. She shielded me from the chaos of a wind and rainstorm (for our outside reception) and the team actually ended up moving everything inside and back outside again when the weather cleared up. It was so much extra work for them and the whole team remained professional and on the ball the entire time. All the other vendors absolutely loved them. Victoria quietly and calmly presented us with options whenever something went wrong and we were able to enjoy every second of our wedding. If you are on the fence like we were, it was the best money we spent. I feel like we can’t thank her enough and we have made a true friend! Despite being able to handle huge luxurious weddings, they also were able to meet us where we were at for our smaller, rustic wedding and never pushed our budget. In fact, Victoria suggested many ways for us to save money that we hadn’t considered. I’m positive she went above and beyond for us multiple times, and don’t want to make promises outside the packages offered, so I will just say if you have Victoria on your team, you will not regret it! I wish I got a picture with her on our wedding day!
— Bride, Brooke
One of the best wedding gifts was not worrying about anything (except my vows...) on the big day. Victoria just ‘got us’ from the beginning and the wedding was just as we imagined - but prettier and better organized. As I told our friends and family, if it looked nice, it was because we had nothing to do with it. It was all Ira + Lucy. Thank you!
— Groom, Tom
