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!

Mary + Chase's Private Estate Wedding

Boise Idaho Temple

Mary and Chase married in the beautiful Boise Idaho Temple on one of this summer's most breathtaking days. Abbey Kyhl Photography captured the joy and love surrounding them. We fell in love with Abbey and her genuine love for what Wedding photography is truly about. She writes, 

But weddings include so much more than just the gorgeous images of the couple and I strive to capture every moment as it unfolds throughout the day. Your wedding day is about all the warm smiles and happy faces of the people who came to support you, tears of joy that are shed as you pledge your love to each other, all the details of the day you have worked so hard to make perfect, and everything in between. It’s about the moment you slip your dress on, to the moment you hug your parents goodbye. The tiny moments that make up your perfect day are special, fleeting and perfect. Life is scattered with tiny moments of beauty and emotion, and my goal is to capture each one of those memories that tell your entire love story.

Intimate Formal Dinner

Mary and Chase had their hearts set on an intimate and more formal dinner with their closest family and friends before getting the party started with the more traditional open house style for their reception. We created a separate private space for this part of the evening by setting the dinner tent with the soft glow of candle light, clean modern and romantic neutrals and lush greenery garlands draped in stunning orchids! Flowers At Will nailed the floral design!

The Reception

The reception was full of good friends, music, and dancing, the perfect mixture for a great time. Oh and maybe having a private fireworks show helped too! The Bride and Groom really loved the idea of having soda bars. They were a complete hit with the guests, as well as having fun lawn games, waterside seating, disposable cameras and polaroids and ended the night with a sparkler exit in a vintage family car.

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!!!

Nancy + Connor's Country Club Wedding

Saturday May 7, 2016 | Club at Spurwing | Meridian, ID

‘I don’t believe in magic.’
The young boy said.
The old man smiled.
’You will, when you see her.’

TABLE DESIGN

Even with more simple table design, sometimes just a little somethin' is needed to give it that finished look. Nancy wanted bright and fancy, but specialty linen and large floral arrangements weren't in the budget. That's ok! And we get it! We decided that it was worth surprising Nancy and Connor with some added fruit elements that just brought it all together so nicely! We felt like the tables needed something as bright and fun as our couple, so we decided to add some fresh fruit to really pack an extra punch throughout the table design. Our vintage blush stemware added more of the pink tones Nancy loved and added some glitzy gold pillows for the Bride and Groom's chairs.

Dessert Bar

Mrs. Fancy Nancy our bride, knew she could not throw the perfect wedding reception without a dessert bar filled with delicious goodies. We helped bring the dessert bar to life with clear glass containers filled with bright candies and trays of custom cookies Nancy had made just for their special day. Adding different elements that vary in height helps bring dimension to displays, and we can't forget about the glittering gold fabric to make it all come together. 

"Ira and Lucy were hands down the best decision I could have made to coordinate our wedding and help with all our wonderful design ideas! Heidi is so personal and caring, and always wanted to make sure our needs were met and we were happy! She went above and beyond her job duty for us and we were so pleased with the final outcome! We couldn't have made our wedding any more beautiful and memorable without her and the team! They are all so professional and punctual! I would recommend Ira and Lucy to everyone! You won't be disappointed!"

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.

The lingerie paired incredibly well with the handcrafted crown and hair adornments by Naturae Design.

westchesterweddingplannerI am so excited to start my week with Ira and Lucy featured on The Westchester Wedding Planner! A "transplant" to Idaho from the bigger city life has been an adjustment these past few years and quite the adventure! Boise has been so welcoming and embraced our family with a lot of love and support! It's been incredible building our vintage rental and wedding design and planning business from the ground up here, so much so that we are now expanding our design and coordination services into Seattle and Portland! It is awesome to be featured by New York's Westchester Wedding Planner this morning! I adore when Idaho Creatives are recognized and put on the "wedding designer map"! We have some incredibly awesome talent here! I'm so grateful for the awesome team of creatives that helped me pull this dream shoot together! xx

[pullquote width="600" float="left"]Happy Monday! This is a fantastic way to begin our week! Heidi of Ira & Lucy Event Design envisioned a dream photo shoot with the most delicate color palette, stunning tablescape with the accents of watercolor, and wedding attire producing one of the prettiest shoots we’ve had the pleasure of featuring here at TWWP. There are so many sweet details that brides can use as inspiration for their own lovely weddings. I hope you love this photo shoot as much as I do. [/pullquote]
