But wait! There's more! Keep reading to hear from Abby about why she decided to hiring an event coordinator and her experience with Heidi of Ira & Lucy.
From the Bride:
Before Dylan and I were even officially engaged, we knew that we wanted to get married at Still Water Hollow. In fact, it was the first and only venue we visited! Brianne and Tyler were so wonderful to work with and were flexible with us, even allowing us to change our date when Dylan was unable to take leave from flight school for the date that we originally set. Since Still Water Hollow was already so beautiful on its own, we knew that we wanted the décor of our wedding to be equally exquisite. Since we were planning our wedding on a budget, my original plan was to create all of the decorations myself ahead of time and decorate the venue myself the morning of the wedding. I am SO GLAD that we found another solution!
Through the Bridal Social at Still Water Hollow, my mom and I learned about Ira & Lucy Event Design and Vintage Rentals. Mom was already hesitant about me trying to decorate the venue myself on the wedding day, and I was looking for another solution to my decorating plans. Seeing the designs that Heidi had created for the Bridal Social was all I needed to convince myself that it would be more than worth it to hire a professional to take over that aspect of our wedding!
Throughout the entire planning process, Heidi from Ira & Lucy blew me away with her creativity, attention to detail, and flawless ability to pull our desired look together. Another aspect that was very important to Dylan and I was staying within our budget, and Heidi was incredibly mindful of that—she found cost-effective ways to create dramatic décor elements, and suggested thrifty alternatives to ideas that were over our budget. During the weeks leading up to the wedding, Heidi kept me updated on the projects she was working on for us—custom signs, dessert flags, centerpiece ideas—but kept some parts of the design a secret so Dylan and I would have little surprises on our wedding day.
Knowing about Dylan’s passion for old vehicles, she even arranged for our dessert station to be set up on a vintage pickup truck! And on the day of the wedding, she and her team worked tirelessly to make sure that our ceremony and reception spaces were flawlessly designed. She also coordinated with our photographer to make sure that Dylan and I would have photos of all of the little details that we might not have time to focus on during the day. Of all of the positive decisions that I made regarding the wedding, the decision to hire Heidi and hand off my wedding décor to her is second only to my decision to say yes to Dylan’s proposal in the first place! We are so grateful to Heidi for creating such a lovely day for us and for being such a wonderful friend to both of us throughout our wedding planning process.
