    So Valuable!

    Alusha was so great to work with from start to finish. We hired her for month of services so that we didn鈥檛 have to be stressed out before and during our wedding day. She coordinated with all of our vendors and our together a great timeline, even when some were difficult to get in contact with. On the day of, I couldn鈥檛 recommend her more. We didn鈥檛 worry about a single thing and were able to just enjoy each other and friends and family. Highly recommend!

    Best wedding decision ever! Alusha is amazing!

    Alusha made our wedding day the best day ever. From day one Alusha made the planning and preparation for our wedding day seamless and stress free. Alusha ensured every little detail was taken care of, scheduled and executed perfectly. When our wedding day came Alusha and Jessica ensured everything at our venue was perfect and all vendors were taken care of from delivery, set up and tear down. They took care of everything so we were able to enjoy every second of our special day. I would highly recommend Alusha and her team. It was the best decision we made for our wedding!

    Alusha is the BEST

    Alusha is the BEST! She came recommended to us from our venue coordinator, and hiring her was the best decision we made.
    I already thought I had a vision going into the planning process, but Alusha suggested so many things that wouldn't have even crossed my mind. All the little details made a huge difference.
    Our day went off without a hitch. We loved every minute of it. And our guests can't stop talking about what an amazing time they had.

    Amazing month-of services!

    Alusha was extremely professional and helpful. We hired her for month-of services and she was instrumental to getting together all the last minute details for the big day. She confirmed everything with our vendors and created a stellar schedule for our day. On the day of the event, we were able to be completely relaxed as we knew she was there to deal with any issues that came up. Our day went off without a hitch and we remained true to the schedule. Alusha was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her!

    Great Investment!

    It was important for us to hire someone to coordinate with all of the vendors the day of the wedding so that our wedding party and family can enjoy the wedding and be stress-free (not have to run around for us) on what is suppose to be a celebration. She also coordinated 4 weeks prior to our wedding and built out the itinerary to a tee! Even months before her services would begin, she was more than happy to help with any questions, and tailored her vendor recommendations based on your what you're looking for (style) and budget! 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!

    A Valuable Asset

    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 of each bride to ensure that their vision is executed perfectly. We booked her for partial planning so she could help me with my decor ideas which included month of coordination.

    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 (which was SO hard for me), 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.

    Incredible wedding planner!

    Heince and I couldn't be happier with the way our wedding day went, and we have Alusha to thank for a huge part of that! Despite being a professional through and through, she also quickly became a friend, and made the whole process of planning a wedding fun and enjoyable. We always felt like we were in good hands with Alusha, and she really helped alleviate all the little stressors that come with planning a wedding. It's more than the know-how, the contacts and the attention to detail that Alusha brings to the table, it's also a genuine sense of care, patience and honesty. We highly recommend her to any couple looking for help planning their big day. Thanks again Alusha, you're the best!

    A true gem!

    Alusha was referred to us by our wedding venue and she was fantastic! From the moment I first sat down with her, I felt at ease, which is precisely what you want from a wedding coordinator! It was clear from the get-go that she was thorough, professional, and, best of all, lighthearted and fun!

    We had already made some of the big wedding decisions when we were referred to Alusha, so we booked her for partial planning. 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鈥檛 even know about it until the next day. That鈥檚 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!

    Alusha was key to making our wedding a success! She was very responsive the whole way through. She provided us with lots of ideas and vendors and the most helpful thing was that she really helped us stay within budget. We would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

    We met Alushya through our wedding venue (she came highly recommended through them) and were immediately impressed. We were looking for a day of coordinator and 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 Alushya 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, Alushya was fantastic - every time we would email her she would respond immediately, and was 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. A week before the wedding, we started to speak with Alushya more frequently, who went out of her way to ensure that we didn't have any stress leading up to the day. She was able to arrange special accommodations with our venue for us leading up to it, and worked with us to drop off all of our items prior to the day of.

    On the wedding day, Alushya was an absolute blessing. We truly could not have gotten through the day without her - or with anybody else as a replacement for that matter. She was incredible. 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. Her preparation and organization before the event was so impressive. She knew exactly what was supposed to happen at every point in the evening. We even had a vendor who did not want to give us a deposit back on a flower wall because it got wet, and Alushya negotiated with them that night to get us our entire deposit back. 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!
