    We Were So Lucky We Found Primavera Dreams!

    We feel so lucky to have found Primavera Dreams! We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into when we decided to host a nearly 200-person Russian-Jewish wedding in my family's Cape Cod backyard - but Luba came to the rescue! She worked closely with us through our year-long engagement to think through every detail, from major vendors to heel protectors for people who wore stilettos in the grass. Luba is proactive, lighting fast to respond, and has a very calming effect on a stressed out bride. She also quickly understood our vision to host a literary-themed wedding and made creative suggestion for how to entertain our guests. More than anything, Luba has an invaluable network of vetted, professional, wonderful, flexible, well-priced vendors that help you navigate the otherwise overwhelming wedding vendor marketplace. She found us our photographer (amazing), hair & make-up (so talented), DJ (unbelievable combination of DJ, live singing, and live saxophone!), videographer (great and had a drone), luxury outdoor toilets, and tent company (so professional). Every single one of these vendors was FANTASTIC on every level, and we cannot be more thankful that Luba found them for us! Because Luba is bilingual, we also asked her to MC the wedding since we had a Russian & American crowd. We felt so comfortable having her lead the evening because she knew every single detail. When unexpected things happened (electricity briefly went out in the caterer's tent so the entree got delayed), Luba checked with me and tweaked the evening's schedule on the fly so that none of the guests noticed. I absolutely recommend her services without hesitation if you're looking for a professional, organized thought partner, coordinator and planner on your wedding journey! We'll always be thankful to Luba for helping us pull off the PERFECT day!

    Dear Leah,
    Thank you so much for your kind words. I keep smiling every time I think about your wedding day, the crazy changes in the weather, you and Alex's glowing faces, your touching ceremony, the first dance, and, obviously, the cats! You've made everyone feeling happy, by sharing your love and joy. What a wonderful wedding! I am a lucky planner for being a part of it, indeed:) Best!

    Luba was invaluable at our daughter's wedding!!

    We are so so happy we hired Luba to help plan our daughter's wedding this September!
    We wanted to do it in our own backyard on the Cape and we didn't have any idea how to start. Luba met with us a number of times and recommended vendors; explained the wedding "flow" and what we need to think about.
    All her recommendations turned out to be super-valuable and we ended up hiring all of her suggested vendors.
    Luba was very attentive to details and answered all of our questions either in person, by phone or email.
    She was there on rehearsal to make sure the wedding party knows what to do!
    And of course, Luba was the Leader of the wedding day! She made sure everything was set up right at the ceremony and later at the reception; she announced the speeches, dances and coordinated with the caterer and DJ the smooth flow of the wedding.
    We would highly recommend Luba for your wedding!! Couldn't be happier!

    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!
