A Note From Lindsey
Thank you for taking time to visit our website during your wedding planning, I know you have a lot on your “to do” list! I started Lovely Day Events (previously Events, Etc.) to serve the savvy, planner-couple that wants to enjoy the big day while someone else worries about the details and schedule. Lovely Day Events prides itself on giving each client 110% effort and service while getting to know you (you will never be a number in a busy summer). Finally, it is import that the bride, groom, families, your vendors and our staff all have fun (let’s be honest, weddings are a super fun celebration).
Truly though, I am a dreamer and a perfectionist, two things that I have learned are essential for being a small business owner and entrepreneur. I am always thinking of how we can better serve clients, how we can offer more services and what we will do next. Finally, it was my dream from the first day I arrived in Jackson Hole, as a river rafting guide, to split my time between my two loves: Jackson Hole and the Bay Area. I am very grateful to have found a career that I love and allows me to work in two of the most beautiful places on earth.
I look forward to working with you on any size wedding. Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions.
Meet the Team
owner, wedding planner
Jackson Hole and Napa + Sonoma
Lindsey grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. She came to Jackson Hole as a river rafting guide during college (Syracuse University) and returned after graduating “just for one winter.” Many years later she left Jackson Hole for warmer weather and family back in California, with a plan to spend summers in Jackson Hole working on weddings and enjoying the mountains. She continues to spend time in Jackson Hole each summer and maintains strong relationships with Jackson Hole vendors. She started Lovely Day Events (Events, Etc. at the time) in Jackson Hole and later expanded to Napa + Sonoma. From a young age she always dreamed of starting her own business, but always thought it would be the second part of her career, not the first.
From Lindsey: I think becoming a wedding planner stems from always being very social. I am very engaged with my wedding clients and love hearing from them long after the wedding day. The first party I ever planned was a surprise birthday party for my best friend in seventh grade. Between then and now I organized the first Banff Mountain Film Festival at my college, weddings, fundraisers, galas and everything in between. Oh, and of course I have hosted countless barbecues, holidays and birthday parties at my house. What can I say? I just love celebrations.
Sandra was born and raised in the Lima, Peru. She came to Jackson Hole after graduating from college in Lima. After a year and half internship in the hospitality industry at Spring Creek Ranch and Snake River Lodge and Spa, she decided to call Jackson home and began a 10 plus year career in event planning. She traded the big city life for the natural beauty of Jackson Hole. Over the years she helped plan everything from fundraisers to social galas to corporate meetings and retreats to destination weddings of every size.
From Sandra: I grew up in my parent’s travel agency in Peru, helping to plan trips and creating new memories for our clients from all over the world. From an early age I realized how much I enjoyed turning a client’s vision to a reality. A well planned trip is much like a well planned wedding; both take months of detailed planning to create a once-in-a-lifetime memory. I’ve enjoyed building relationships with brides, grooms, and their families and becoming not just a wedding planner but also a friend. I can’t wait to be a part of you special day!

Jamie has grown up her entire life in the wonderful Midwest, specifically, in Wisconsin. That hasn't stopped her from traveling all over the country, though, and even to countries outside of the U.S.! After graduating from college, she stepped foot inside of the "corporate world" and spent the next 15 years climbing the corporate ladder. Soon after her kids were born, though, she knew she wanted to find something that was going to allow her the freedom and flexibility to call the shots on her career, and soon, she started her own business where she now works-from-home daily. She loves being able to help business owners and entrepreneurs move their businesses to the next level, while being able to grow her own business and dreams. The best of both worlds!
From Jamie: For as long as I can remember, people have called me a planner. Organize a social activity with friends? Let Jamie take the reigns. Getting ready for an upcoming vacation? I plan in as much as possible to make sure I don't "miss anything" at the destination (which I don't know if my husband loves or hates!). So it was only natural that I'd want to take control of how I was going to be present for my family, while managing a career. Before I knew it, I was starting a business and haven't looked back. I absolutely love being able to meet like-minded individuals and bouncing ideas off of each other. It has been so rewarding and I pinch myself that I've been able to do something I love everyday!
