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 :)Sent on 07/28/2018

Luba is through, on-time, easy to reach and very professional at her work
I think 5 start is not enough for Luba, her work and profession worth a lot more than you can explain with words. My husband and I are so busy and hard to find a time that we both are free at the same time. We planned almost 4 months in advance for our wedding and everyone was saying you can’t make it ontime. The first thing I did for wedding preparation was find a wedding planner. We found Luba and after the first meeting I really liked her. She was through, organized and know what she is doing. We were able to find the venue after a week. We had our wedding in the Conners center at Dover and I love this place. She recommended all the other vendors and i really liked them. All the vendors that Luba recommendation were very professional, flexible and nice and friendly. With Luba s advice we were able to prepare everything ready for the wedding day on time. The wedding day everything were planned and run based on schedule, no mess no rush. My wedding was a dream one and all the guests loved it. We got a lot complements and everything went smooth very beautiful and stunning. Luba worked hard to make all my requests and plan for our wedding day happened. She is awesome and I highly highly recommend her.Sent on 05/30/2019

Primavera Dreams Review
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!Sent on 11/11/2018

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!
