TESTIMONIALS

We are grateful for our clients’ praise.

 

CATHERINE AND JAMES

From the moment I first sat down with Alusha, I felt at ease. It was clear from the get-go that she was thorough, professional, and, best of all, lighthearted and fun! Alusha was extremely helpful in finalizing our remaining vendors, prioritizing our to-dos, and keeping us on task. In addition to being really responsive and organized, Alusha was my sounding board in the months leading up to the wedding. She helped me solidify some of the harder wedding decisions I wrestled with and she always gave honest, practical advice. I really appreciated her perspective and experience. 

Alusha was invaluable on our wedding day. The day was seamlessly executed and she made sure that everything went off without a hitch. In fact, there was even a small crisis with a water leak in our reception space and I didn’t even know about it until the next day. That’s how amazing Alusha is - she was so on top of everything and solved problems in a blink. She helped spare us a lot of stress and helped keep our focus on all of the wonderful things about our celebration. Alusha was truly a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an event coordinator!

LARA AND MARK

Full disclosure: Alusha had organised another 250+ event for me and once Mark proposed, she was one of the first people I turned to for help with venue, vendors, logistics and keeping my brain sane. Alusha navigated decisions between a control freak bride (me!) and an Italian groomzilla architect groom and even handled stuff right before the wedding when we were overseas. Her confident, easy going attitude inspires complete trust and it is deserved. On top of all of this, Alusha is wonderful to work with; quick to return calls/emails and was unbelievably organized and professional. I can't recommend Alusha enough. Want to remember and *enjoy* your own wedding? Book with A Lush Affair. 


CHAD AND PHILIP

We could not have got through the entire process without you! You were reliable and dependable, and took on everything and anything. Truly, so many highlights were made possible by you! We wanted to thank you so much for making our day one of the best. We have heard from so many people that it was the best wedding they have been to – what else can you ask for!! You are one of a kind - thank you!!


AMANDA AND KAMRAN

We met Alusha through our wedding venue (she came highly recommended) and were immediately impressed. We started with a phone call with her to ask a series of questions (we are the type of people who ask a LOT of questions before booking a vendor). We knew within minutes that Alusha was a good fit. She was detailed in her responses, it was immediately apparent that she was experienced and knowledgeable, and she fit the bill of everything we were looking for. Leading up to the wedding, Alusha responded immediately, always available for calls or even to meet. She was incredible at recommending vendors and services for us to use, and talking us through each process.

On the wedding day, Alusha was an absolute blessing. We truly could not have gotten through the day without her. Worked hard throughout the day but always calm, took in all of our requests and almost always anticipated things before they happened, negotiated with our vendors, had an amazing eye when it came to decor and set up. In addition to all of this, she is beautiful, warm, genuine, and on the ball - and all of our guests loved her and wouldn't stop asking about her! Truly the best in the game and unrivaled both in anticipation of the day and on the wedding day itself. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a planner/coordinator!


KIM AND GIACOMO

Alusha from A Lush Affair was recommended to us by our DJ, and after meeting only with her I booked her on the spot. She is incredibly kind, passionate and supportive.

We definitely had some bumps along the way including an extremely difficult venue coordinator, last minute guest changes, losing our videographer 1 week before the wedding, that without her I probably would have completely lost my mind. 

She always reminded me that "Anything is Possible" and encouraged me to speak up and say what I wanted, so that she could make sure it would happen. And I am very grateful for that because our wedding day was absolutely flawless and everything came together even better than I could have imagined. 


LAURA AND KRISTOPHER

Alusha just went above and beyond for us in the month leading up to our wedding. Driving in rush hour to help with our rehearsal dinner, wrangling vendors, managing our timetable, and most importantly she allowed us to not worry about ANYTHING on our special day. Both my husband and I were so happy with her, and have recommended her to all of our newly engaged friends as the BEST wedding investment we made (plus, she's just totally lovely inside and out) - Thank you for everything Alusha!!!


VICTORIA AND CHRISTIAN

Alusha is incredibly professional with an infectious energy. There are no words that can express the depth of our appreciation for all of her hard work. Not only was it an effortless day for us, but our parents were able to enjoy the day alongside us, not having to stress about all the minor details along with the bigger details. Alusha had it covered and allowed us to have complete confidence in the logistics of the day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding dreams come true!


JEN AND CHRIS

Chris and I could not be more grateful for Alusha and all that she did to make our day perfect. The amount of time and effort she put into all the planning so that every aspect was considered was amazing. She kept us on track and took care of all the fine details allowing us to enjoy both the planning and the day-of without a single worry. She worked with our schedules and met with us countless times, always going the extra mile. Alusha was organized and professional and because of her attention to detail, our wedding day was seamless. Thank you Alusha for all your hard work and for making our wedding EVEN BETTER THAN WE IMAGINED! We LOVE you!! We highly recommend A Lush Affair to anyone planning a wedding or special event.


SIOBHAN AND JEREMY

I was very impressed with Alusha’s professionalism, polish and attention to detail. Her confidence and expertise put me at ease and I knew I could trust her to execute my day to the standard that I expected. All of the vendors who were recommended by Alusha were outstanding. Alusha was extremely helpful on the day of the wedding. She managed suppliers and reacted to any unforeseen issues quickly, providing solutions all while keeping the flow of the day moving and without causing us any unnecessary stress. I would highly recommend A Lush Affair to any bride and groom!

ODILE AND AL

Al and I wanted to thank you for all your help with our wedding! The evening was perfect and I could not have imagined a better wedding. Thanks for helping us iron out all the details before the big day and accommodating my last-minute requests. Everything was perfectly executed on the day of. We definitely could not have pulled this off without your help! We truly appreciate all the work you have done.


STEPHANIE AND AARON

I am very picky and had a very specific vision of how I wanted my wedding to look and feel, Alusha understood that vision immediately. She came up with some great ideas that had a huge impact on our decor. Alusha put together the most beautiful dessert bar, our guests were raving about it. Alusha created a very detailed day of itinerary and thanks to her input, we had the exact wedding plan that we wanted. I had a lot of anxiety on the day of and Alusha managed that very well and was on top of everything. Alusha was patient, professional, timely and committed. She knows all there is to know about event and wedding planning. I could not have done it without her!


JENNY AND MACKENZIE

We loved working with Alusha - she's super personable, professional, detailed-oriented, and everything at the wedding ran smoothly. When we sat down to go through the details of the wedding day, she was able to pinpoint some areas in which the venue shouldn't be charging us for, and pushed back on the venue, which I loved as I wouldn't have thought to bring it up, if it wasn't for her knowledge in the industry and for her persistence.

On the wedding day, I lost the ankle strap of my heel and she was quick to think of a solution (used a balloon ribbon which made my shoe look even prettier !) - very clever. We also requested we wanted our first dance to be at a different location outside of the venue (rooftop) which originally we were told it wasn't going to work - but she pulled it off for us. Thinking back we should have made some adjustments to our budget so we could have her plan our entire wedding rather than just the month/day of coordination. My advice for to-be brides is if you can, hire a wedding planner to plan your whole wedding and just show up to enjoy the best day of your life, so you wouldn't have to go through the stress of comparing countless vendors. I'm sure Alusha would be great fit for planning the entire wedding knowing she's got amazing style, taste, while keeping your budget in mind. We are so grateful for Alusha and couldn't be happier we hired her. We highly recommend her services!
