Wow, where do I even begin with Ira + Lucy, and Victoria. When I was younger, I remember imagining what my wedding day would be like and how beautiful everything would look. It wasn’t until we got engaged and started talking about planning the wedding that reality hit me, and I wondered how I was going to be able to pull it all off. We weren’t having any luck finding a venue, when out of nowhere an old friend highly recommended Ira + Lucy to us and said that Heidi had been amazing to work with for their wedding a few years prior. I instantly went online to their website and was amazed! The first thing I saw were the beautiful farm tables they offer as rentals, and upon looking further into their portfolio I saw multiple weddings they had planned at a gorgeous venue called Still Water Hollow. I filled out the pre-consultation form and couldn’t believe that I heard a reply from Victoria the next day! She was so nice and arranged so we could meet up at Still Water Hollow to discuss wedding plans. Victoria was so kind and shared with me how excited she was about my ideas for a fall wedding, and from there the rest is history. After the meeting I knew we needed to book Ira + Lucy, and it’s honestly the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding. From the first day to the last, Victoria was able to take all my thoughts, ideas, and wants and turn them into reality. From the colors I wanted, to the flowers, the décor, the style, and the logistics she was able to make everything perfect. Another major concern I had with wedding planning was finding the right vendors, and that was absolutely no problem at all for Victoria. She works with many of these vendors quite often, so she was able to recommend who she thought would work best with us and to fit our budget. She not only helped with coordinating and scheduling, but was there with us for support at every single meeting whether it was about floral, a venue walk-though, food selections, or choosing a photographer. She was there for us this entire past year answering the countless number of questions and concerns that we had while planning. Victoria helped us to stay on track and organized every step of the way with weekly email updates and an awesome online planning tool. Then, to top it all off, Victoria and the Ira + Lucy team worked so hard the day of our wedding to make sure everything looked truly amazing. It made us so happy to know that on our wedding day our families and friends would be able to relax, have a good time, and enjoy the day without having to worry about setting things up in the morning or cleaning up at the end of the night. I would without a doubt highly recommend Ira + Lucy to anyone who is planning a wedding. Not only will they help you every single step of the way through your planning process, but they will be there your entire wedding day making sure everything goes smoothly and as planned so you can rest assured and enjoy your day. Ira + Lucy, I honestly don’t think we could ever thank you enough for all your hard work and everything you did to help us plan the wedding of our dreams. Thank you so much for everything! - Amy
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!”
Where to even begin with Ira and Lucy! They were the very first decision that we made in planning our wedding, and also the best. We were lucky enough to work with Erin as our senior coordinator. Within planning a wedding, it is impossible that everything goes smoothly, but through the ups and downs, Erin walked alongside us and made sure we made the right decisions and that everything was going to work out perfectly for us. She spent so much time meeting with us, working tirelessly on our wedding, Facetime calls, vendor meetings, etc. and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. She made sure that we left no stone unturned as we planned this day, so that the day of the wedding we would have nothing to worry about. She communicated with vendors and made sure everything was properly coordinated. She was simply amazing. I seriously cannot imagine what planning our wedding would have been like without Erin. - Karli
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”.
I've worked as a professional photographer for twelve years and worked with so many wedding coordinators over the years and Heidi and her team are absolutely the best of the best. They are everything you want from a wedding vendor, professional and extremely good at what they do, while also be really enjoyable to work with. If you want your wedding in great hands, they are the people to hire. - Johanna and Sebastian’s Photographer, Bryan Rupp
Sophine and Caspar fell in love vacationing in Sun Valley and wanted to share their beloved Idaho experience with their dearest friends and family. Caspar spent many winters with his family in Sun Valley and sharing this place with their Australian guests was a must for them! Planning from "down under", okay, maybe way too cliche there, Sophine reached out to us to help her bring her vision to life. It was quite the fete! the best part was how much it snowed, come the wedding day! We went from bare ground to almost two feet! It was a winter wonderland! Thank you Sophine and Caspar for having Ira + Lucy part of your incredible wedding! I think you have officially redefined what it means to party!
You guys are champs! Happiness is an understatement, and I’m speaking for both my husband and I and my parents. You guys went above and beyond. It was literally everything we could have dreamed of and so much more. Every detail was perfect and we knew we didn’t have to worry about anything. I have never seen my parents in such good moods. Every single guest said it was literally the best wedding ever and I know they weren’t bs’ing me. We blew people’s minds while we married our best friend and that’s the effect we wanted :) - Katie
