Outstanding and worry free celebration
I just noticed that Primavera Dreams is celebrating its anniversary. By coincidence, we are spending some quality time at home with the family and got to reminiscing.
In July of last year, though it seems decades ago, Luba has organized my husband’s, Alex Karpovsky, round-number birthday celebration in Italy.
To say that it was impeccable is to say nothing about it. By Primavera’s measures, it was not a large celebration - around sixty guests and two full days of festivities. But for us, when we started the preparation it seemed absolutely daunting.
How do you get together people from half a dozen countries all over the world? Many of them have never met each other. How do you make sure they enjoy their time together? And, by the way, the budget we had was (very) far from unlimited.
Well, looking back it still seems amazing that Luba was able to get it all together and made it look simple in the process. Even during the celebration itself every minute felt like fun times - and none (except for sudden onslaught of mosquitos during an open-air cocktail hour - but the spray did help) felt like fighting emergencies or straining to get things right.
Of course the location - Lago Maggiore in Italy - is gorgeous and inviting to begin with. But there are lots of choices and actions that could’ve gone wrong. Luba led us every step of the way - from choosing the right venue among many highly variable options to play-by-play entertainment and through every detail including the choice of flowers and the right photographer.
Every time I think back on the festivities I smile and the quarantine seems just a little less painful when we reminisce.
We hope - no we are sure - that there will be another family celebration in Italy and Primavera Dreams will be there for us to make it memorable and enjoyable.
Thank you Luba!Sent on 04/16/2020
Primavera Dreams's reply:Dina,
Luba from Primavera Dreams is an amazing woman that places her heart and soul in everything she does. She is educated, intelligent, organized, talented, great listener, and a true pleasure to be around. Anybody would be please to have her in the organization of an event, simply because she is just a fantastic person and a great professional.
Very qualified professional with whom we had the pleasure of collaborating. Surely Luba is a wedding planner that I would recommend to every prospective client.
When I met Luba, I knew instantly she was a kindred spirit - a scientist with an artistic soul! Luba brings her logical mind and attention to detail to her business, but she also has a warm, lovely personality. I am not at all surprised by the tons of positive reviews Primavera Dreams has on Wedding Wire!
