Ira + Lucy showcases beautiful Idaho State in Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine Volume 4 | Stunning western refinement featuring dress designer, Leanne Marshall and designer hat from Janessa Leon. “I love to encourage our clients to think outside the box! Sleeves are a huge trend right now, and what could be more perfect than a gorgeous flowing gown with whimsical texture? I love the Idaho Bride - she’s bold, kind, adventurous and loves a little glam. I get to work with Ranchers, Horse Trainers, Doctors, Nurses, Creatives, Environmentalists, Politicians… Every bride is different, every wedding is fresh new design!”
We had the pleasure of having Ira + Lucy plan our dream wedding. Heidi truly understood what we envisioned our wedding to look and feel like. She was attentive to my needs, even when I'd text her frantically at all hours of the night. She and her staff made our wedding day more than perfect, there were NO stones left unturned. I can't recommend her enough!
These two are the epitome of laid back (though Leah likes to say “easy peasy”)! From our first meeting, I had to contain my excitement about their modern minimalism vision! I left the consultation with fingers and toes crossed hoping they decided to book with us...and they did!
I loved the planning process with these two and learning more and more about them. A few months into the process, we had some sad news that Leah was diagnosed with skin cancer. But, in true Leah fashion, that too was easy peasy! She took her arm sling off the day before engagement photos and still rocked the session even without being able to do her normal hair/makeup...and still looked gorgeous. Oh, and I’ll also mention that they had to replace their septic system, had some emergency vet visits for their pup AND Leah was traveling for a solid 1.5 months RIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING! Like seriously...she flew back into town 2 days prior to saying “I do”.
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
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!

I love having the Father of the Bride present the bridal bouquet to the bride - it's such a special moment. We had Alexis' Dad and Step Dad, have a private moment seeing Alexis in her gown for the first time - the "First Look" with Dad.

BEHIND THE SCENES
No details are left unplanned. Our Senior Planners take time to plan table layout and event flow. Emily and Clark's design is one of my favorites! We softened the space with floor to ceiling drapes, created a focal lounge space near the custom dance floor and drew focus to a wow head table. The staircase was draped in stunning greenery and florals! Accent lighting and soft candlelight filled the room with a romantic glow.

IRA + LUCY FEATURED IN OREGON BRIDE MAGAZINE!
Oregon Bride Magazine
We can finally let the cat out of the bag! We are so happy to be featured in Oregon Bride Magazine's Best of 2017 Issue! This feature means a lot as it's been so important to me and our brand that we are recognized as a PNW Wedding and Event Planner.
Hope you enjoy the images from our shoot and be sure to check out the magazine, out now on shelves! Thank you to the awesome team of Creatives (listed below).
We were drawn to Portland’s beautiful architecture as it truly speaks for itself. This styled shoot at Adored Vintage focused on bringing out the truly imaginative, creative and natural talent that we love about the Portland scene. Keeping to neutral tones to accent Portland’s unique structure. The Oatmeal tone velvet with natural Tuscany linen napkins accented the ceramic pottery details and romantic gold elements.
Textures were the focus for this tablescape with simple two tone vases, soft romantic hues and lush local floral elements. A tablescape is an experience for your guests. Run your fingertips over the soft velvet linen, the rough and smooth ceramics, the glassware, brass candlesticks and acrylic chairs. A tactile dream!
Acrylic chairs are a beautiful modern take on special event seating. Modern or classic and even with old world design style, they work! Showcase that beautiful linen and table design with a chair that only enhances the experience.
The brides dress, a stunning design from Alexandra Grecco, reflects simple elegance with contemporary lines and movement. The silhouette while simple in design; mimics the dramatic architecture surrounding St. John’s bridge with a mirrored deep V neckline and stunning mid-thigh slit. Complementing the modern design is a delicate golden maple leaf crown from Melinda Rose Designs.
The cake was kept simple to compliment the signature cocktail and focus on texture mimicking the ceramic details and adorned with natural floral elements
We adore simple elegant design. Timeless. Classic. Unforgettable.
