Ira & Lucy Wedding Professionals Spring Workshop

 

Today, I’m honored to welcome Heidi Wight, Owner & Principal Designer from Ira & Lucy, to the podcast.

If her name sounds familiar, it’s because I’ve mentioned her multiple times on the podcast because I learned the concept of the “Communication Clause” in a contract from her!

I first met Heidi at Rooted in the Rockies, a wedding professionals conference here in Denver, CO.

I sat in Heidi’s breakout session at this conference taking PAGES of notes because she is a master educator and I didn’t want to miss anything - I knew I had to have her on the podcast!

In today’s episode, Heidi is throwing down on:

  • Foundational building principals for any wedding business
  • How to hire WELL
  • How to diversify your income
  • Book recommendations for wedding pros
  • AND MORE!

Books Heidi Mentions in this Episode: 

The Small Business Startup Kit 

Hiring Your First Employee

The Wedding Book

Here’s a bit about Heidi:

As the co-founder and principal designer of Ira + Lucy, Heidi Wight, is recognized for her intuitive sense of style, as an impeccable design expert, offering her clients a full wedding experience focused on authentic client relationships and bespoke service.

Ira + Lucy, named after Heidi’s husband’s great-grandparents, began 7 years ago as a boutique wedding rental business that organically evolved into a thriving, highly sought after event planning and design firm. Raised in the beautiful Pacific NW, south of Seattle, Heidi has incorporated the blend of city culture and style with the personable nature of country life in Idaho.

Heidi and her team boast an extensive portfolio featured in industry-leading publications, has been a featured speaker at Rooted in the Rockies conference, and orchestrated some of Idaho’s most prominent weddings!
