Case Studies








"We can’t control the weather. We’ve tried many times. Working with Ironic allows us to work with the weather. Starting with historical data, extended forecasts, two-week forecasts, and so on through the event, Ironic has proven to be an indispensable partner, allowing us to speak knowledgeably about the weather without the need of shuffling through endless, unreliable, and often contradictory weather apps."

- Nick Yarmac, Rafanelli Events 

"In June 2022 I was the Producer on a wedding where the ceremony, cocktails and dinner were all to be held outdoors. While the team prepared an equally amazing rain plan scenario for this wedding, we really wanted to go with our Plan A. We were introduced to Andrew by our boss Bryan and I cannot thank him and the team for their help with this event in particular. Andrew forecasted the weather multiple days in advance and sent daily reports to assist us with making our decision final. On the day of the event, we were texting every 30 minutes with weather updates and he really kept our minds at ease. Knowing we had Andrew and his meteorologist on our team was really comforting and allowed us to focus at the task at hand rather than trying to gather the forecast from multiple weather apps and resources"

- Alexandra DaRosa, Rafanelli Events

As an event planner, the feeling of anxiety that you carry heading into an outdoor wedding that has a chance of rain is something that will never go away. But Ironic is the key ingredient to easing that stress. Working with Andrew and his team has not only benefited our ability as planners to react and think knowledgeably and efficiently, but it has given our clients a sense of relief knowing that the information we are using is top of the line. We look forward to working with the team in the future and highly recommend their expertise.

Seasonal Report Examples


"Being destination event planners we are often taken out of our comfort zones and it's tricky to monitor weather effectively, especially in mountain towns! Andrew was able to give us daily weather reports and gave us hour by hour updates during rain, lighting, and any stormy weather. This helped immensely when scheduling our install. On the wedding day we were advised to adjust our ceremony timing by 15 minutes so we could keep the set up outdoors, this was one of the most beautiful moments of the day. Thankfully we were able to move forward with our Plan A thank you to Ironic's expertise! A wonderful and luxurious experience."

-Ruth Skidmore, Alison Events 


This service is invaluable for event professionals looking to have in-depth weather information. You get an incredible team behind the forecasting, and a "right-hand man" for down to the minute predictions on event day. We used Andrew's service for a recent large scale production wedding in Indio, California where high winds, last minute storms, and general unpredictability can be huge factors to contend with. He and his team not only texted our team every morning with detailed weather information, they were available and at the ready for all of our questions. He even went so far as to break out the best times for us to set the tables in our outdoor pergola! Although no one can change the weather, Andrew's team mitigated the risk factors for us and made us feel at ease about all the unpredictability.

Are you still asking yourself, "What is a wedding meteorologist?"

The best response is that a wedding meteorologist is the greatest protection against the unknown. When you hire a professional meteorologist, you can say you have a meteorologist on your team, and we are here to help you in any way we can.

Since starting, Ironic has helped planners forecast the rainstorms, thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornados, hail, blizzards, black ice, sleet, high winds, and even wave height for guests traveling to an island wedding.

We have also helped planners look at forecasts two years in advance to help set expectations for their clients regarding wind speed and humidity and how that might affect wedding hairstyle choices. In addition, we have analyzed the expected temperature to help suit material choices. We have even looked at the dew point, its relation to cake icing, and the structural integrity of wedding cakes!

The Ironic Weather Team is here to alert planners and teams of any change in weather patterns and potentially dangerous situations that could affect your client's wedding day.

Our mission is simple: to provide wedding professionals with the most accurate and detailed information so they can set expectations and make the right calls before it is too late.

If you have any questions about the weather or need help, call, text, or email us!

We are happy to help in any way we can.

-Andrew Leavitt, Ironic
