Elegant Fall Plum and Gold Wedding

I'm just days away now from Abby and Dylan's Fall Still Water Hollow Wedding and am getting so excited! No, I'm not going to be that wedding designer that is so excited because she thinks it's her own wedding...I'm excited because I really just absolutely adore my Bride Abby! She has the biggest heart and is so darn sweet! Months and months ago, prior to her booking our Event Design services, she shared with me her frustrations, her concerns...her disappointment and I found myself wanting to swoop in and play the Fairy Godmother. When Abby contacted me and said "I just want you to do it all!" I was beyond thrilled! She has been such an incredible bride to work with. I am so very blessed by her! Honestly, I'm so sad she'll be moving out of state post wedding. I'm trying to convince her otherwise ;) She'd be a fabulous assistant for Ira & Lucy! Plum and Gold Details


I'm working on the finishing touches for her and Dylan's special design details and am so pumped to see it all come together! I can't wait to share photos form their very special day and hope to blog about the full experience afterward too! Abby I am so happy for you and Dylan! You are truly a beautiful person inside and out! Your kindness and joy shine so bright! No matter how much work I put into your wedding, you will surely outshine it all!

Love you!

Event Design...explaining the Idea Board

Event Design is all about creating an atmosphere, an environment that tells your unique love story. When you view swoon-worthy weddings on Pinterest or on your favorite blogs and magazines, often a designer was involved! It’s about pulling the entire look of your wedding or special event from the invites to your after party all together for a seamless and one-of-a-kind event. Stanley Styled Shoot 1

You'll notice on our Services Page that we offer Event Design Packages! Part of the process includes a custom designed Idea/Concept Board created just for you by Heidi, Lead Designer and Owner of Ira & Lucy. A Concept Board includes color palette, hand selected typography styles, images of inspiration, select items from our inventory and a break down of the different styled stations for your wedding. Instead of being completely overwhelmed with all the eye candy from Pinterest, we narrow down your entire design, creating cohesion with a distinct and personal style of its own that perfectly represents your love story! After your initial consultation and booking our Event Design Services we then create this custom board for you! It becomes the blueprint for your event!

To give you a feel for what our Idea/Concept Boards are like, here is a custom board we designed for one of our October couple's, Abby and Dylan.
