Shannon B. 10/6/2018 My husband and I can't say enough about Luba. From the beginning, Luba has been there for us as a consistently reliable source of knowledge, advice, comfort, and organization. We had already picked our big vendors - venue, catering, photographer, florist, music - by the time we met Luba. We had found ourselves managing crazy work schedules, without the time needed to devote to finding smaller vendors and working on the details that really bring a wedding to life. We looked into a few different planners, but we knew from our first meeting that we wanted to work with Luba. Her care and attention to us as a couple and calm demeanor showed us instantly that Luba was exactly what we needed. Throughout the wedding planning process and now beyond the wedding itself, Luba has been there for us for the smallest of questions to helping sort out last minute vendor changes. Luba stayed on top of the wedding coordination and timeline when we didn't have time to, working on our behalf behind the scenes and looping us in for decisions when needed. Luba even attended one of my final dress fittings in downtown Boston so that she could learn how to bustle my dress. Where we most needed help was the wedding weekend itself, and Luba's contributions to the weekend were above and beyond. Luba stayed at a hotel near our venue the weekend of and was a calming, helpful source for everyone involved. From coordinating with vendors, to assisting the florist in the set-up on the day of (who later told us she could not have completed it all without Luba!), to making sure everything was easy and magical for my husband and I, Luba really made the weekend an incredibly beautiful experience for all involved. We feel that we now have a friend gained from the process, and are looking forward to staying in touch with Luba. We can't recommend her enough!
Sarah M. 10/20/2018 We brought Luba in the middle of our wedding planning (six months out) to help get us organized and make sure we weren’t missing anything. She was thorough, very organized, and provided great advice. When I started wedding planning, I wasn’t sure whether it was worth investing in a wedding planner (I had already found a venue and most of my vendors), but now I would say it is absolutely worth it. Leading up to the wedding, she was extremely helpful in planning the day, suggesting wedding vendors, and being a sounding board to ensure that we were on track and not missing anything The week and day of, I did not have to think about any planning or vendor organizing. She took care of everything in the background, for which I am very grateful for given I was able to spend a lot of time with family visiting from out of town. I’ve also learned that it is really important to have someone act in your best interests when it comes to negotiating with all vendors - Luba did that superbly! If you are looking for a wedding planner, you should absolutely reach out to her!
Danielle P. 6/30/2018 We just came back to Toronto from our magical wedding near Florence, Italy and had the pleasure of having Luba as our Tuscan Wedding Planner. We worked with Luba for 1.5 years and she was excellent! Extremely organised, offered many beautiful options and couldn't have executed the day any better. Luba was a lifesaver, making sure we got things done on time and was great at mediating the different opinions between my husband and I (which is VERY important when planning a wedding!!). She was always available for a chat, and answered our emails and messages promptly. Luba is very intelligent, well educated, speaks multiple languages ( English, Russian and Italian and perhaps more!) and most importantly has a strong passion in her role as a Wedding Planner! I strongly feel her dedication, extreme diligence and passion are exactly what any couple would be looking for to help create their magical day at home or abroad :) Cheers! Danielle & Daniel
