Acrylic Ghost Chairs

Who's excited for these gorgeous acrylic chairs!?! We are! You'll be spotting these beauties in some of our 2017 weddings! They are more versatile then you think and will be mixed with modern and rustic elegant styles. We hope you'll love these as much as we do! And guess what!? They are now available in the Treasure Valley! Event Rent made it happen! Tell them we sent ya!

Chairs make a MEGA impact on your overall design! Our two favorites are the beautiful cross back option or these acrylic ghost chairs! 2017 is the year of the ghost chair. One of the reasons we can't get enough of these acrylic ghost chairs is because they are a beautiful and modern take on special event seating. Modern or classic, even with old world design style, they work in such a variety of styles. These unique chairs are also the perfect way to showcase that beautiful linen and table design you’ve been planning by enhancing the incredible details around them. The acrylic fades seamlessly into the design and lets all the elements of your design blend together to create the perfect balance.  Not only do these beauties mix well in all types of wedding styles they mix well with other chairs as well. Still not convinced? Check out some of our favorite ways ghost chairs have been used so far.

"Getting Ready" Bridal Pics

You have your hair and makeup team on site, pampering you and your bridesmaids. You're laughing, excited and anxiously anticipating that moment of the first time your Groom sees you. Typically, the photographer arrives on location when some of your bridesmaids hair and makeup is complete and they are finishing your own look. What are you all wearing? How will the photographer capture this moment? Coordinating your robes or coverups is a great idea!

  1. IT'S PRACTICAL: Hair and Makeup Professionals want you wearing something that is easy to get in and out of, so you won't mess up that perfect look.
  2. IT'S MODEST: These are memories and photos you'll cherish for a long time and want to share with your friends and family. Keep that cleavage tastefully covered.
  3. IT'S STYLE: It just looks sooooo good!

Modest Swimsuits

I do a lot of research on Instagram to stay ahead on trends and styles and stumbled on Beverly Swimwear! I'm thrilled to share with you these adorable gowns for those of you wanting a suite that isn't overly showy!

Growing up in San Diego I’ve spent a large part of my life in swimsuits. Like everyone else I always struggled to find modest swimsuits that I loved and that I could also afford. I knew I could help solve this problem not only for myself, but also for the many others that are searching for cute modest swimwear.

Once I graduated I started a new venture by creating my own business, Beverly Swimwear, an online shop selling cute modest swimwear, giving people more options of styles at a reasonable price.

Mary + Chase's Private Estate Wedding

Boise Idaho Temple

Mary and Chase married in the beautiful Boise Idaho Temple on one of this summer's most breathtaking days. Abbey Kyhl Photography captured the joy and love surrounding them. We fell in love with Abbey and her genuine love for what Wedding photography is truly about. She writes, 

But weddings include so much more than just the gorgeous images of the couple and I strive to capture every moment as it unfolds throughout the day. Your wedding day is about all the warm smiles and happy faces of the people who came to support you, tears of joy that are shed as you pledge your love to each other, all the details of the day you have worked so hard to make perfect, and everything in between. It’s about the moment you slip your dress on, to the moment you hug your parents goodbye. The tiny moments that make up your perfect day are special, fleeting and perfect. Life is scattered with tiny moments of beauty and emotion, and my goal is to capture each one of those memories that tell your entire love story.

Intimate Formal Dinner

Mary and Chase had their hearts set on an intimate and more formal dinner with their closest family and friends before getting the party started with the more traditional open house style for their reception. We created a separate private space for this part of the evening by setting the dinner tent with the soft glow of candle light, clean modern and romantic neutrals and lush greenery garlands draped in stunning orchids! Flowers At Will nailed the floral design!

The Reception

The reception was full of good friends, music, and dancing, the perfect mixture for a great time. Oh and maybe having a private fireworks show helped too! The Bride and Groom really loved the idea of having soda bars. They were a complete hit with the guests, as well as having fun lawn games, waterside seating, disposable cameras and polaroids and ended the night with a sparkler exit in a vintage family car.

So let’s climb every tree
And drink imaginary tea
And speak a language only we can understand
And I will fight back the tears
As we fly through the years
And I’ll keep you as close as I can...

Sydney + Bryce's Silent Film Inspired Wedding

SATURDAY JUNE 27, 2015 | SUTHERLAND'S RANCH | EAGLE, ID

Ira and Lucy Boise Wedding Planner, E and E Photography
We would be together
and have our books
and at night
be warm in bed together
with the windows open
and the stars bright.

Featured on Swooned

Bryce Hoogland and Sydney Thomas, high school sweethearts and film students with a shared passion for the silent cinema of yesteryear, wanted to imbue their big day with a “vintage film feel.” Surrounded by fragrant lavender fields, enshrouded in decades-old greenery, and dotted with an eclectic array of found art, Sutherland’s Ranch offered the Idahoan couple a setting worthy of the old screen. A lunar motif gave the event a touch of stardust, with a handcrafted crescent moon evoking the popular portrait props of the early twentieth century.

The wedding was captured beautifully by Ethan and Emily Hensley of E + E Photography, whose photographic treatment was inflected with a sense of the past. “Bryce and Sydney put so much thought into every bygone detail,” Emily says. “Their nuptials encompassed everything that is beautiful about a summer wedding in Idaho.” - Swooned

“For us, the ceremony was the best part of the day. We wrote our own vows, and saying them out loud before all of our loved ones really hit home. We started off the ceremony by presenting both of our mothers with bouquets and thanking them for making the day possible. We ended the ceremony by having our officiant explain to our guests why Bryce and I opted to take each other’s surnames, hyphenating them together to create a new name. We wanted to have the same last name, but we didn’t want to follow the patriarchal tradition of a bride abandoning her last name.

"Made by pastry chef Greg Marsh, the couple’s four-tiered naked cake was in keeping with the Arcadian theme. It sat on an amber glass pedestal, enwreathed in sugar-dusted berries and accented with tiny sprigs of baby’s breath." - Swooned

We hired Heidi with Ira + Lucy to coordinate the wedding. This was by far one of the best decisions 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 truly can’t imagine going through the stress of planning a wedding without the help from this amazing woman. Money well spent. I would recommend Ira + Lucy for coordinating and decorations to anyone planning a special event!!!
