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

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 your special day!
Jayme grew up in the big city of Chicago. She moved to Jackson Hole with her husband in 2016 for a new adventure after graduating from college in New York. Jayme also attended Illinois Wesleyan University for her undergraduate degree in Biology and Biochemistry.
Jayme has many years of experience in the wedding industry. She was a DJ and hoto booth attendant for seven years in Chicago, currently works at xowyo paper + press in Jackson Hole making wedding invitations, assists with floral installations at Fleur de V in Jackson Hole, and is part owner and stationer for her mom’s event staging business in Chicago.
From Jayme: Weddings have always been a part of my life, and once I started working in the wedding industry, I learned how all different aspects (music, photo, flowers, catering, etc.) have to work together to make the perfect day! I’ve been lucky enough to dip my hand in almost every part of a wedding, and now, with wedding planning, I can finally make the whole vision come together. I’m excited for another season of wedding bliss, and I look forward to working with all of the wonderful couples who decide to make Jackson Hole a part of their special day
