Alexis + Brady's Fairytale Wedding

WILLOWBRIDGE | PRIVATE ESTATE
MAY 13 2017

I dreamt of having an Ira and Lucy wedding from the moment I became engaged. But May 13, 2017 was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. It truly felt like a fairytale! The day was smooth and calm and all my family and I had to do was relax and take in all the joy and beauty because I knew Heidi and her team would handle every detail. I can’t thank their team enough for surpassing my wildest wedding day dreams and giving me my fairytale. It was the perfect start to a beautiful life of marriage.

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.

For all of our clients, we create a Plan A as well as a contingency plan in case of bad weather. We saw the dark clouds coming as the day progressed closer to the ceremony hour. The Bride was adamant about wanting the ceremony outside on the beautiful beach. We hustled and made it happen and just in time! It started raining immediately after the recessional. Because of planning, we were able to have guests on the side of the room indoors and out of the rain. Our crew had to hustle and pull all the chairs and church pews out of the rain to prevent them from getting water damage - another reason to hire a planner and team!

Sydney + Bryce's Silent Film Inspired Wedding

SATURDAY JUNE 27, 2015 | SUTHERLAND'S RANCH | EAGLE, ID

Ira and Lucy Boise Wedding Planner, E and E Photography
We would be together
and have our books
and at night
be warm in bed together
with the windows open
and the stars bright.
— Ernest Hemingway

Featured on Swooned

Bryce Hoogland and Sydney Thomas, high school sweethearts and film students with a shared passion for the silent cinema of yesteryear, wanted to imbue their big day with a “vintage film feel.” Surrounded by fragrant lavender fields, enshrouded in decades-old greenery, and dotted with an eclectic array of found art, Sutherland’s Ranch offered the Idahoan couple a setting worthy of the old screen. A lunar motif gave the event a touch of stardust, with a handcrafted crescent moon evoking the popular portrait props of the early twentieth century.

The wedding was captured beautifully by Ethan and Emily Hensley of E + E Photography, whose photographic treatment was inflected with a sense of the past. “Bryce and Sydney put so much thought into every bygone detail,” Emily says. “Their nuptials encompassed everything that is beautiful about a summer wedding in Idaho.” - Swooned

“For us, the ceremony was the best part of the day. We wrote our own vows, and saying them out loud before all of our loved ones really hit home. We started off the ceremony by presenting both of our mothers with bouquets and thanking them for making the day possible. We ended the ceremony by having our officiant explain to our guests why Bryce and I opted to take each other’s surnames, hyphenating them together to create a new name. We wanted to have the same last name, but we didn’t want to follow the patriarchal tradition of a bride abandoning her last name.

"Made by pastry chef Greg Marsh, the couple’s four-tiered naked cake was in keeping with the Arcadian theme. It sat on an amber glass pedestal, enwreathed in sugar-dusted berries and accented with tiny sprigs of baby’s breath." - Swooned

We hired Heidi with Ira + Lucy to coordinate the wedding. This was by far one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!! Heidi was not only extremely professional and helpful, she was a lot of fun and had so many creative ideas. I truly can’t imagine going through the stress of planning a wedding without the help from this amazing woman. Money well spent. I would recommend Ira + Lucy for coordinating and decorations to anyone planning a special event!!!

I know Patty said thank you, but I wanted to echo that sentiment. Obviously, we are pretty fond of Katie and Craig. You really made their special day perfect. You, and your staff, were wonderful to work with and fun to be around. Taking all those organizational tasks off our hands allowed us to relish the occasion, what a blessing.

You are really amazing. You are passionate about what you do and you poor your whole self into it. My favorite comment was that people ‘could really feel the love’ during the whole event! Isn’t that the coolest?

Some other comments:
“They moved a LOT of people through the event and it never felt like it”
“ The decorations were incredible”…people were so impressed with every detail…
Loved the farm tables
Loved the bars
Loved the pics
Loved the table settings
LOVED the tent
Loved the DJ
“The food was remarkable” – everything here was perfect and people were wondering how you fed so many without any food being dry or cold. Wow. “The staff was really professional and worked so hard”. Everyone was jealous of the ear pieces. “There were a lot of photographers. Those pictures are going to be amazing” –

It's with bittersweet emotions that I share Katie and Craig's beautiful wedding day! It took almost a full year's work to plan, design and manage their wedding and I have come to care very much for Katie and Craig and their families. I consider myself extremely blessed by the clients and the friendships formed from the relationship we build and so sometimes when it's all over.... it can be a little sad. I know that the emails and texts and meetings will become memories, but they are cherished memories. Katie and Craig have thee biggest hearts and are two of the most kind individuals I have ever met. This was truly a labor of love! Thank you Katie and Craig, Patty and Derrick, Teresa and Jeff... thank you for sharing this intimate and cherished time in your family's lives with me and allowing me and my team the honor to create a remarkable and memorable wedding I know we will all cherish. Blessings! - H

Custom design boards

As part of our "Enhanced Day of" Package we provide design assistant to three selected areas of the couples' choice. Makayla and Mike asked for special attention for their Head Bridal Party Table, The Ceremony Alter and the Cake Feature. 

Below is a snippet from the Custom Design Boards we created for the Head Table concept, featuring a romantic floral print linen from La Tavola Fine Linen, pulling in the blush tones from the wedding color palette. The Bride and Groom sat in our "Kelli Jean" french victorian settee for their special seating and the rest of the wedding party looked lovely in the cross back chairs we sourced from Tates. Each place setting had our Honey Harvest rattan charger and a blush napkin. French vintage blush stemware added some whimsy and antique brass candlesticks and candles set the tone for a dreamy garden tablescape. The floral design by Lemon Blossom Designs was stunning!!!! Those peonies were quite the statement and so dreamy! I finished the settings by adding classic china with blush accents for the Bride and Groom place settings.

Jamie, from Blush co.

As you can imagine we are quite busy! It's the day before our first big wedding of the season and it couldn't start with a sweeter and more deserving bride. Sammie's wedding is going to be full of black, white, and hues of purples and a pop of blush for a romantic boho wedding.

Ira + Lucy Wedding Tips

brrrr.... it's cold outside!

Jillian Rose Photography, Ira + Lucy Wedding Tips

So, last night we were down to 1 DEGREE!!! And today's high was only 12.... Brrrr it's freezing! But, then I found this HOT deal today out running errands! I'll be honest, I don't shop much at Craft Warehouse, I think it's too pricey there and I'm very selective on what I do buy and that is usually if I have a coupon. As a Designer and working my butt off trying to find ways to give you beautiful weddings, while thinking of your wallet I do love when I land on cost savings. AND I usually try to source items via wholesale outlets and other connections we have. So, today I found these Pashmina scarves at $5 each in a wide variety of colors.

This is a great option for buying in bulk! Have 150 guests? Estimate half are female and plan for only a portion of those guests will use a scarf. I'd suggest 50! Keep your receipt and anything that isn't used you can return.

Ira + Lucy Wedding Design Tips

PASHMINA

Pashmina is the finest type of cashmere wool. The textiles made from it were first woven in Kashmir. The name comes from Persian: پشمینه‎‎ / pašmina, meaning "made from wool" and literally translates to "Soft Gold" in Kashmiri -

Sure, you can find these a little cheaper on wholesale sites around $3.50 each, but I vote for the $5 option where you can see the colors in person and feel the quality! I say the peace of mind is well worth the extra $1.50! Plus, any you don't use simply return! Keep your receipt!
