Maddy + Cameron's Lakeside Willowbridge Wedding

Maddy + Cameron's Lakeside Willowbridge Wedding

Oh my gosh...what an incredible wedding. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much!! You and your team are absolutely incredible. - Maddy, Bride

I have had the WORSE wedding withdrawals ever! It’s such a sad feeling when it’s all over. *:( sad My heart was happy to see your name pop up this morning! I will never be able to thank you enough for everything you did for us. You are an amazing person with a heart of gold. You pulled off Maddy’s special day perfectly. I know how incredibly hard you and your staff work. Everything little tiny thing was done with so much love and attention. I LOVE seeing your “Behind the Scenes” on Instagram! It breaks my heart really!! Maddy and I have been enjoying seeing all your posts of the weddings you have been working on. We giggle because we are actually” jealous” they get to spend time you. You make the planning process so special and fun, we didn’t want it to end. You have a talent beyond words but combine it with so much love and that’s what make you so special. We have had endless compliments on the wedding thanks to you. The venue turned out spectacular and when we walked into to dinner, it was truly a wonderland. Just gorgeous and thanks to Kara, it smelled so good! I can’t wait for our pictures! I thought the sneak peeks were so awesome! We appreciate you to no end!!!! I don’t know how I could ever thank you enough. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. I will recommend you to everyone I know!! - Jenny, MOB

Let's talk chairs!

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.

We can not say it enough. We LOVE these acrylic ghost chairs. At Ira + Lucy we pride ourselves on being able to provide thoughtful and unique design as well as new and different ideas to showcase your style. We can not wait to see where the ghost chairs take us. When doing your own design research you will find that these are called "ghost chairs" "acrylic chairs" or "lucite chairs".

Late Night Thoughts

quoteAs many of you know, it's hard for me to separate business from personal...Ira & Lucy is quite personal since my heart, soul and sweat have and continue to pour into this dream. I know I tend to wear my everything on my sleeves and Jonnathan often tells me that it's one of my best qualities and yet, gets me into hard situations as well. I have always believed in the value of authenticity. Maybe sometimes I share too much, but truthfully I do allow myself to be vulnerable because I hate to accept the negative that is out there...even if it has caused me some painful lessons. I don't want to have to build walls and be "all business", but sometimes I really see the value in that. You know what I mean?! It's scary as hell to be that vulnerable, and my word, is that emphasized when it comes to starting your own business. Ira & Lucy is not a hobby, it's a living breathing full scale business that supports our family. I thank God every day for the opportunities and blessings He has given us to help make Ira & Lucy what it is. The relationships we have built with some incredible people have lifted us up and encouraged us through the stuggles business owners all understand. I am blown away by the growth we have had in less than a year!!! It's thrilling and fills me with hope for the longevity of this business. If you follow us and feel connected to Ira & Lucy, thank you for your support and encouragement. It means so much to us. We truly believe that the Treasure Valley has phenomenal businesses and people behind those businesses and are honored you pick us. Tonight I'm focusing on believing in the potential, for not listening to any of my insecurities, and allowing myself to continue to share my heart with you. I encourage you to allow yourself to be vulnerable, to reject allowing fear to control your actions and to leap for your dreams! Leap and FLY!

Tangerine and Shades of Blue Inspiration Board

A beautiful and fresh approach to Spring and Summer Weddings! Perfect for the couple wanting to incorporate vintage accents without being overly "vintage". It's all about key pieces! This board features our "Carina" velvet blue sofa. Add in blue china and shades of blue for escort cards. I adore the orange tulips! Keep decor costs down using seasonal fruit too! I might add this is a great way for you Boise State Fans to incorporate the University Colors without it being overtly BSU theme! The ideas are limitless!
