Alison Events - Jackson WY


Background: Ironic was hired by Alison Events to provide weather updates for a wedding being held at Creek Ranch in Jackson, WY. As the day of the wedding approached, a storm system was forecasted to move into the area, with lightning detected 20 miles away from the venue.

Challenge: As the storm system approached, the lightning moved within 10 miles and then within 8 miles of the venue, Ironic prompted a request for a shelter-in-place for the wedding guests and vendors working. The challenge was to ensure the safety of all attendees while minimizing disruptions to the wedding ceremony.

Solution: Alison and her team used the information provided by Ironic to make a decision to speed up the ceremony and get everyone inside and safe for the 30 minutes that were needed for the shelter in place.

Outcome: Thanks to the collaboration between Ironic and Alison Events, the wedding guests and vendors were able to take shelter and avoid potential danger from the storm. The ceremony was able to proceed with minimal disruptions, and the wedding reception was able to proceed as planned. The couple and guests were able to enjoy their special day without any weather-related interruptions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having a weather monitoring company on board can provide critical information for making decisions to ensure safety during outdoor events.
  • Collaboration between event planners and weather monitoring companies can help minimize disruptions and ensure the safety of all attendees.
  • The ability to make quick decisions in the face of potential danger can help to ensure a successful event.

"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."
