Sherri + Artie's McCall Wedding

“Hiring Heidi and her team at Ira & Lucy was the best decision we made while planning our wedding! We had a remote wedding in McCall, Idaho at a venue where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, had to be brought in from out of town through multiple vendors. Needless to say it was complicated, but Heidi managed it all with ease. Heidi and her staff completely transformed the space. I wanted an elegant but laid back outdoor wedding, and she brought all of my ideas to life and was able to create the unique vibe we were looking for. On the day of the wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that the Ira & Lucy team was keeping everything running smoothly, attending to guests needs, working with all of the vendors to keep the timeline, and handling any unexpected hiccups without us ever knowing about it! So many of our guests commented that they felt so taken care of throughout the weekend, which was important to us. When you hire Ira & Lucy, not only do you get a planner with impeccable taste and resourcefulness, but a team that cares about your guests and their experience as much as you do.

SIDE BAR: Heidi and her team are FUN! Not only did Heidi exceed our expectations in planning our wedding, but we became great friends with her during the process. We're still texting one another months after our wedding! She truly cares for her clients -- you are not just a number to this team.” Sherri

After seeing Ira and Lucy’s portfolio and reading their mission statement to design thoughtful and remarkable weddings, I knew they were the perfect team to help me plan my wedding while I was living out of state. From our first phone conversation to our sparkler send off, senior coordinator Victoria Haney went above and beyond to make my wedding day a dream come true. Most importantly, she consistently listened carefully to both my fiancé’s hopes and mine for our wedding day to ensure that all our expectations were met. She remembered even the smallest details I mentioned along the way, calmed my worries no matter what time of day, was creative and innovative when it came to the wedding design, was resourceful and well connected to our vendors, logical when talking through our mutual decision making and exceedingly kind and patient throughout the entire process. I cannot say enough about how Victoria was an advocate for me, my fiancé and my family, in order to make sure the day was everything we all wanted it to be. Victoria is incredibly talented and dedicated to her work. I would (and have already!) recommend Ira and Lucy to anyone planning a wedding, no matter how big or small.

Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine's Regional Debut

You know when something so meaningful happens to you that you actually don't want to share it with the world just yet, instead you want to hold onto it for a little while longer in your own quiet and safe space and take it all in? That's how I have been feeling about the debut of Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine's regional launch featuring the big editorial I designed for them back in October. It's been a journey getting to this place and I never want to lose site of my gratitude or faith in what my dream and goal of Ira and Lucy is. I've been experiencing a ton of emotions leading up to this week and finally holding the magazine in my hands and seeing my work on actual magazine pages, it's surreal! Thank you Rocky Mountain Magazine for this incredible opportunity. Every single page is beautiful and it's an honor being party of such a gorgeous collection!

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.
