Let me tell you, this team is worth their weight in gold! We hired Lush Meetings & Events as our destination wedding planner and design team. We worked directly with Tamara. Tamara is extremely professional and well traveled. She had great relationships with many vendors and if something was out of our price range, she would either negotiate or look elsewhere.

I researched many wedding planners before I came across Lush Meetings & Events. I always felt as though I was the one and only bride Tamara was working with. Some companies didn't get back to me, some didn't understand my particular taste, and most were awfully expensive! Tamara provided an extremely personalized service and excellent value. Every message I sent was answered in a timely manner. Even if she didn't have the answer there and then, she would send me a quick message to ensure me that she was working on it. I never felt as though I was bothering her. She made our wedding the most magical day of our lives.

If anyone is planning on getting married in or around Florence, Italy you will not go wrong with hiring Tamara at Lush Meetings & Events.

A-m-a-z-i-n-g! Tamara was amazing! I really was unsure of how much would actually be "planned"and taken care of. I cannot say enough good things about Tamara!

From the first call we had with her to discuss our ideas, to the day of the wedding, it felt perfect and flawless. Since we were coming from out of state and with covid guidelines we were unsure what the end result would actually look like. Tamara found the prefect venue for us. She always gave multiple choices for us to choose from when it came to decor, pastors, dj's, florists, photographers, etc. but at the end of the day she nailed it as to our vision. Her "first choice" proved to be the best choice every time! We loved having our weekly meetings and getting to see everything coming together. Tamara is full of energy, visions, and excitement! We could not have planned our wedding without her and I would definitely recommend using her if you want a perfect, stress free wedding! :)

1500 Miles Away? Pandemic? No problem! Words cannot express just how WONDERFUL and AMAZING it was to work with Tamara.
We live in Texas, but wanted our wedding to be near family in Pennsylvania, 1500 miles away... and COVID-19 was in full swing. We used the phone and online meetings for everything.
Tamara was our guide at every step of the way. She walked us through everything from initial discussions, explaining her services, vision casting, budget planning, venue selection, decorations, ceremony, food and beverages, music... everything. She kept us on track and focused with homework, to-do lists and due dates.
Tamara was our eyes and ears. Behind the scenes, she was touring venues, and vetting vendors, negotiating contracts, and keeping on top of the impact of COVID. She was prompt and direct when complication arose, and she researched and proposed solutions.
If you want the absolute best wedding planner, talk to Tamara.
Not just for weddings, but any meeting or event!

I had a GREAT experience with Lush Meetings & Events. They were professional and everything was beautiful!

Lush Meetings & Events made my wedding a success. Everything was beautiful and I received a lot of compliments from my guests. From the flowers to all the little details, just made it so wonderful! I find them to be very creative & their suggestions were just perfect.

Our team has been working with Tamara since 2015. Her creativity and vision are unparalleled. She brings the best ideas to the table and knows how to implement them.

We can always trust Lush to interact with our clients, our team and our vendors with the utmost professionalism. Tamara really knows how to tap into just what an event needs to create that wow factor — and she knows how to get it done inside time constraints and within budget.

We love working with her!

Hiring Tamara and the Lush team was one of the best decisions I have ever made, period. I get teary eyed just thinking about how perfect she was. From helping us figure out what we still needed to do (suits - Menguin, total winner for our tall groomsmen) to setting up all of my flowers and decor - everything was professional, fun, and absolutely breathtaking! When I say our day could not have moved smoother, I mean it 100%. She took all the odds and ends from me planning on my own and made it come to life better than I could have ever imagined. I had zero stress on my wedding day because of this team. If you are on the fence about hiring them, I swear she will make sure your day is fantastic! All of my bridal party was blown away by how great she was. Multiple guests said I should throw parties more often and I know that was all Tamara. I can't wait to host more events just to work with her again lol. In all seriousness, she made my wedding go off without a single hiccup. The day was perfect and I know that is because of their hard work. You will not regret having them on your team. I am still blown away! Hire these beautifully kind people now!
