Brooke and Michael's Tamarack Wedding

TAMARACK | MCCALL IDAHO
July 15 2017

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!

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!

From Planner Victoria

This weekend was amazing, crazy, beautiful, rainy, perfect, sunny, gorgeous, windy...but most of all, it was full of love!

Where do I start with these two??? From my first meeting with Brooke and Mike about a year ago at a Starbucks in Nampa, my first impression was "wow...now that is love". Brooke wasn't expecting Mike to be at the meeting because of work conflicts, but he showed up about 5 minutes after we started. I could almost see her heart skip a beat ️ For the rest of the meeting they sat no more than an inch away from one another and were always checking in with one another on questions, ideas, and design. 

From then on every meeting we had was filled with the same amount of care, love, and overall joy. 

Fast forward to wedding day...

All of that love and joy I've been speaking of, well I know where they get it! I met parents, siblings, best friends, aunts, uncles, and so many more people that are a part of their lives and they all are just as kind as our lovely bride and groom. 

Not only did we reset the reception from outside in the courtyard at beautiful Tamarack Resort, but then the family and friends help us move it all out again! Don't you just love Idaho weather?!?! 

A huge thank you to all of the amazing vendors for your help and flexibility during the initial rain storm, then again during the wind storm, and yet again to move back outside when the weather finally decided to cooperate. We were all able to give the bride and groom the day of their dreams!
