Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do.

Lisa is incredibly talented! When we first met on Scott and Lisa's ranch and discussed what she and Scott wanted in a Wedding Coordinator, what was most important... a wedding that truly reflected their life, their dreams, their personality and their friends and family. Full of spunk and a design challenge, Lisa laughed and said,

For our wedding design we need you to think,
Cowboy fur trapper goes to art school in Mexico!

Challenge on! Lisa created so many incredible DIY elements for her day that infused their relationship, history and lifestyle. It was a joy for our team to help guide she and Scott through planning logistics, bringing their vision to life and creating a memorable celebration!


Ira + Lucy Vintage Boho Wedding, Southerland's Ranch, Eagle ID

Something that I've always focused so hard on, is the relationship I and my team have with our couples, including their parents, especially the Mother-of-the-Bride. We work very close, usually with Bride and Mom in the months leading up to the wedding. Sometimes that means late night conversations on the phone about concerns or stresses and how we can help them through those challenges. I'll never forget when Sydney reached out to me back in November. She found Ira + Lucy on WeddingWire and sent us an email inquiring about our services. It was a match made in heaven! When Sydney shared her vision I immediately wanted their wedding. Sydney and Bryce are both film students in Denver and I just adore their style and both are such quality people. Soon, Sydney's mom, Denise and I were shooting emails back and forth in prepping for the big day.

Sending Sydney and Bryce off in a sparkler exit to a dreamy vintage car, a surprise gift from the Groom's parents, was so special and a bit emotional for me. Dealing with 105 degree weather, and over 13 hours in the heat, Sydney hugging me before they ran to the car and telling me how happy she was, "Heidi I just love you! Thank you!" meant the world to me!

SyYou'd think after three years of doing Ira + Lucy I wouldn't get nerves or deal with anxiety, but I totally do! I can barely sleep the night before our clients' weddings because I'm so caught up in all the lists, logistics, management etc and I can't stop my head from those lists. I want the day perfect for my couples that have trusted me and my team. It's one thing to kick ass leading up to the wedding, but it's another come "go-time". It was an incredible day! I've never seen such a stunning wedding party! Wait till you see the pics! E + E Photography were wonderful to work with and I'm just dying to see the pics! So, for now here is one stunner of a sneak peek! Thank you Sydney and Bryce and the Thomas and Hoogland Families for inviting Ira + Lucy to be part of such an incredible moment! xx

Stay tuned for more pictures coming soon!

Pink Lemonade- Summer wedding inspiration

 Summer Time!

I don't know about you but I am SO ready for summer! I am sitting here on a brisk, windy spring day wishing I could feel the sun on my face while sipping pink lemonade in the garden. And of course this daydream inspired a wedding board that is full of sunshiny yellow and soft pink mixed with just the right amount of subtle vintage accents.


I am in love with the golden ranunculus and muliti colored anemones in the bouquet...a touch of the sophisticated that neatly balances the rustic mason jars and distressed wallpapered wood. And how adorable is that mail box card catcher!? For an outdoor event a lounge area featuring a lemon yellow wingback chair paired with our cream Anna Marie sofa styled with custom pillows would be the crowning glory to an event that I know I would never forget!

This whole color palette has me positively drooling and I am already envisioning a DIY project with wallpaper and wood...maybe a ceremony backdrop or cake stand. Or maybe just something fabulous for my own house!
