Natalie and Brad's Classic and Timeless Wedding

Lindsey Nickel

Natalie and Brad will always stand out as a wedding we loved and will never forget. They are a very sweet couple who loves the outdoors and adventures. Skiing is one of their favorite activities. When they first started dating they would book ski trips on Friday to the newest snow for the weekend and off they went. The ski town of Jackson Hole was the perfect fit for their summer wedding and Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club was the perfect venue. The cloudy day didn't stop this wedding from being beautiful and tons of fun! From the arch, to the garlands, to the antler wedding logo, no detail was overlooked. Natalie and Brad recently welcomed a baby boy into their adventures as well!

Lovely Day Events Named to The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame 2017!

Lindsey Nickel

Fifth Annual Hall of Fame Awards Honor the Top Wedding Vendors Across America

We're super excited to announce that Lovely Day Events has been inducted into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame from The Knot, the leading wedding brand and marketplace. Exceptional wedding professionals who have earned four or more of The Knot Best of Weddings awards are inducted into the prestigious The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.

In its eleventh annual year, The Knot continues its longstanding tradition of supporting local wedding vendors with The Knot Best of Weddings, a by-couples, for-couples guide to the top wedding professionals across the country. To determine the winners, The Knot assessed almost one million real reviews across the various vendor categories—venues, musicians, florists, photographers, caterers and more—that a bride or groom would want in order to inspire, plan and book their own unique wedding.

This year, The Knot Best of Weddings winners represent the top 2% of local wedding vendors listed on TheKnot.com. There were only 808 new inductees into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame for 2017 out of more than 300,000 local vendors featured on TheKnot.com. We're honored that doing what we love has resonated with the couples we have worked with! 

Hiring Lindsey was the first move we made in planning our destination Jackson Hole wedding, and I am so glad! The first phone call felt like I was talking to a close friend about the vision and details that were important to us. Lindsey stayed in contact throughout our nearly two year planning process, offering suggestions on vendors, planning tips, and follow-up on anything I needed help with. She is incredibly detail oriented and I felt comfortable early on that every aspect would be taken care of in her capable hands. Our day-of-timeline was so well planned and executed that we could have started our ceremony early if we wanted, which is amazing, because I am notoriously late for everything! Her attention to detail, and precision make her excellent at her job, and I am so glad she was there to help us with every step along the way. Thank you Lindsey!
— Rachel B.

Kim and Dom's Vibrant Wyoming Affair Featured on Borrowed & Blue!

Lindsey Nickel

Kim and Dom's June wedding had all the summer details that we love. They were married at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club on a bluebird sky day with clear views of the Tetons behind them.

The bright blue pops of color in the water goblets, flowers and napkins made everything feel cheerful and celebratory. Many children attended (including the couple's two adorable sons) and they were thrilled with the kids' activity table, filled with coloring books and toys. A blue and white candy bar was a huge success for both young and adult guests. Everyone danced the night away with music provided by Jackson Hole DJ

Liz and Brian's Romantically Chic Hillsborough Wedding Featured on Borrowed & Blue

Lindsey Nickel

In May, we had the privilege of working with Liz and Brian to plan their spring wedding at a private residence in Hillsborough. This wedding was extra special because Liz and Lindsey are friends from summer camp. Liz and Brian were married at a family friend's farm home in the Hillsborough, CA. They included tons of personal touches such as wood coasters for favors, a carrot cake in place a a traditional wedding cake and groomsmen wearing socks supporting their favorite teams. The wedding turned out so magnificently, it was recently featured on Borrowed & Blue! We think the smiling photos of the happy couple below say it all.

Congratulations Liz and Brian! We wish you a life filled with love and happiness!

Kelly & Shane’s Mountaintop Wedding Featured on Rocky Mountain Bride

Lindsey Nickel

We had sun, rain, hail, thunder and lightning on Kelly and Shane's wedding day making it extra memorable. Somehow this weather seemed fitting for a couple who loves adventures! Kelly and Shane met at a Crossfit gym in 2012 and from that day forward, it was obvious they were destined to be together.

Couloir Restaurant was the perfect venue for their special day with its amazing mountaintop views and delicious cuisine. Guests sipped huckleberry champagne as they rode up the gondola to the ceremony. A family member officiated the heartfelt wedding where there was not a dry eye in the house!

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio followed by a buffet dinner, speeches and dancing.  As always, Jackson Hole DJ brought down the house.

Chelsea and Mason's Casually Elegant Wedding at Sylvan Lake Estate Featured on Borrowed & Blue

Lindsey Nickel

"Casual" and "elegant" are the perfect way to describe Chelsea and Mason's wedding at Sylvan Lake Estate. We had a blast working with this down-to-earth couple and were excited to see their special day featured on Borrowed & Blue.

Chelsea and Mason's romance began working together on a political campaign. As Northern California natives, the couple has always loved the relaxed atmosphere and picturesque beauty of wine country. They selected Sylvan Estate as their venue because it still felt like an intimate destination within close proximity to their families.

EV Floral Design's lush green and white floral arrangements were breathtaking. Delicious gourmet pizza from Ca'Momi contributed to the elegant yet casual feeling of the day. The night ended with an unforgettable dance party to the sound of the Decades Band and a delicious treat from Johnny Donuts.  See the full details on Borrowed & Blue!

Erin and Garrison's Winter Wonderland Wedding at Spring Creek Ranch featured in Rocky Mountain Bride

Lindsey Nickel

Erin and Garrison's winter wonderland wedding at Spring Creek Ranch was nothing short of spectacular. We were delighted to be a part of this couple's snowy, romantic day and are pleased to announce their wedding has been featured in Rocky Mountain Bride's 2016 Wyoming Issue!

Some of the details of Erin and Garrison's wedding included the bride's beautiful boho chic dress by Rue De Seine. The dress was perfectly completed by a fur wrap which went along with their neutral color palette.

One of our favorite details of the day were the stunning flowers by Jackson Hole Flower Company which included a delicate floral crown for the bride made of champagne roses. Guests were seated at tables adorned with antlers and horseshoes, making for the perfect place settings.

The night ended with petit fours from Jackson Hole's own Atelier Ortega and dancing to the beat of local band Major Zephyr.

Katie and Farzad’s Peony-Filled Wedding at the Harvest Inn Featured on Borrowed & Blue

Lindsey Nickel

A little rain did not stop Katie and Farzad's wedding at the Harvest Inn from being featured on Borrowed & Blue! The rain actually made this one of the most unique, romantic and unforgettable weddings we've worked on to date.

The unbelievable peonies were styled by Rion Designs and featured pops of pink and blue which are on trend with this year's wedding Pantone colors.  Although the reception was moved to a tent at the last minute, the end result was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!

Another piece that made this wedding day extra special was the Persian wedding ceremony, including a traditional Sofreh. The Sofreh set up included foods, decorations, herbs and a mirror all representing a piece of the couple's new life together. This Sofreh was a labor of love and turned out beautifully.

Anna and Derek's Dreamy Vineyard Wedding at B.R. Cohn Featured on Brides

LovelyDay Events

We were so excited to see Anna and Derek’s wedding featured on Brides! BR Cohn’s rolling vineyards were the setting for this dreamy, summer wedding in Sonoma, California. Bride Anna chose a stunning lace dress designed by Maggie Sotero that was complimented by her colorful bouquet of roses and ranunculus.

Anna and Derek love traveling was a theme throughout the day. Their guest’s tables were named after states the couple had visited together. Anna also handcrafted a seating chart using a map of the US to help guests locate their table.

The bride’s advice to anyone getting married is to hire a wedding coordinator, "it will make your wedding day so much more enjoyable and stress-free!" We are so glad Anna chose us to help make her wedding a “Lovely Day!”

LovelyDay Events

A beautiful homegrown garden wedding in Napa Valley? We can't think of many things more picture-perfect than that! Take a look at Addie and Jeff's wedding day at Winter Creek Estate Gardens, which we were honored to recently have featured on Borrowed & Blue! The pictures are so gorgeous and if you're looking for more details on this purple and yellow homegrown garden wedding, read the full feature now at Borrowed & Blue!

June weddings are just the best! The weather is gorgeous, everything is warm and refreshing and it's the perfect time to get married, which is exactly what Addie and Jeff did! We loved the elegant, yet intimate backyard feel for their wedding vows, along with their reception. And the complementary yellow and purple color palette screams warm and fun-loving for the big day!

What a picturesque location, with the lush greens, white drapery and flowers that finished the look. Everything was so down-to-earth, with a homegrown wedding ambience all around. It was exactly what this couple was looking to achieve! And the rustic vibe came shining through with the great chalkboard wedding signs that were used for guests to see what was happening around the event. Nailed it!

How "sweet" is this sweetheart table for the happy couple! What a great way to start your marriage with just a little bit of privacy and fun for the two of you during the reception! How cute!

We were beyond giddy when we learned Lindsey and Florian’s wedding had been featured on Carats & Cake!

This past September, Lindsey and Florian celebrated the wedding of their dreams at Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford. The beauty in this spectacular wedding was truly in the details. Every special touch was thoughtfully planned including the vintage cake plates and mogrammed pillows.

The bride stunned in a delicate Monique Lhuillier gown. Pale pink accents were woven throughout the day from the bridesmaid's gowns to the Crème Anglaise cake and romantic floral arrangements.

Adriana Klas Photography and Reel Eyes Media captured the day so that none of these incredible memories will be forgotten!

Thank you Lindsey and Florian for allowing Lovely Day Events to be a part of your magical wedding day!

The bride's peachy-pink bouquet of garden roses, along with ranunculus, complements the greenery around the winery absolutely perfectly! The white base palette that was used during the reception also complements the touches of color that was brought in from the flowers and the greenery. And we absolutely adore this unique take on a guest book. Instead, the couple opted to have all of their guests sign a wine crate from B.R. Cohn Winery that will forever hold a special place in their hearts! What a great idea!

Lindsay and Matt's Jackson Hole Wedding at Trail Creek Ranch Featured on Rocky Mountain Bride

LovelyDay Events

When it came to planning this couple's perfect wedding, being unique was at the forefront of their minds! They had decided to host the wedding in the bride's hometown of Jackson Hole, which meant they had a lot of familiarity with the area. Trail Creek Ranch offered the perfect backdrop to their vision and it turned out absolutely breathtaking! If a low-key wedding in the mountains is in your future, than you HAVE to take a minute to check out Lindsay and Matt's rustic wedding! We were so honored to have this wedding be featured on Rocky Mountain Bride. Head on over to the full feature, where you can read about all of the great details this wedding had! 8

While they had been to many beautiful weddings, their goal was to create the ultimate low-key and relaxing event that everyone would enjoy and remember. Trail Creek Ranch provided the perfect western experience they were looking for and by having friends and family participate in every aspect of the wedding (from the wedding officient, to the caterer, to the bartenders!), they were able to pull of the low-key and laid back vibe they were hoping for!

And what about this amazing vintage-style, teardrop trailer that the bride's father handmade?! It was converted into an open-air bar for the reception and was a huge hit with all of the guests!
