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 to serve the savvy, planning minded 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 important that the bride, groom, families, your vendors, and our staff all have fun (let’s be honest, weddings are a super fun celebration).
Two things that I have learned that are essential for being a small business owner and entrepreneur are being a dreamer and perfectionist. 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 and returned after graduating “just for one winter.” Many years later (okay, it was 10 years), 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 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. When she's not working she enjoys traveling, hiking, and spending time with her husband and dog.
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 and seeing photos of what's new in their lives on Instagram. 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.
Napa + Sonoma
Born and raised in California, Michaela has pursued a career in the fitness industry as a personal trainer for the last five years. Specializing in weight loss and strength training, Michaela loves working with people to help them achieve their goals. She was introduced to the wedding planning business in 2015. Wedding planning has always been something she dreamed of doing since watching "The Wedding Planner" as a child, and now it has become a reality!
From Michaela: I love seeing everyone’s creative minds and personal styles shine through on their wedding day. Not one wedding is the same, so it really keeps the job interesting. My favorite part about the whole day is that it’s based on love and happiness.
Jackson Hole, WY
Olivia has grown up all over the world. After graduating college in Florida, the mountains called her name and she moved to beautiful Jackson Hole. As she spent more time outdoors, hiking up mountains, fly fishing, and snowboarding in the winter, she discovered her love of exploration. Olivia spent two years traveling through the Eurasia region learning about new cultures and since returning back to Wyoming in 2017 she has been specializing in vacation planning; helping others find their love in adventure.
From Olivia: As a young girl I always wanted to own my own bridal boutique. In college I realized that event planning really drew my attention. After helping a few family and friends produce their special days, I realized my overall love for this industry. Working with Lindsey has inspired me creatively and opened my eyes to the world of wedding planning. Watching a production come to fruition and seeing a couple spend their day care-free and very happy with the people they love is what makes this job and industry to worth while.

Originally from the outskirts of Vancouver, BC, Lindsay relocated to Victoria, BC at the age of 20 after a day trip to the Island led to Lindsay meeting her now husband and knowing he was “The One” over a bag of baby carrots.
Lindsay is now Lindsey’s (confusing, right?!) “behind the scenes lady” who helps out with all things tech, marketing, admin, and website-based.
In her spare time, you can find Lindsay dancing to Disney Princess music with her two little girls, catching up on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette”, and up to her eyeballs in luscious Lush bubble baths.
From Lindsay: I feel so lucky to be working with my namesake in an industry that I love; Lindsey has such an awesome sense of humor, and is so much fun to work with! I appreciate her knack for being able to have fun, and manage stressful situations without batting an eye. The entire team is full of upbeat energy and excitement- exactly what anybody bride wants in somebody who is going to play such an important role in their wedding!
