Simply, our wedding wouldn't have been possible without Tracey. From the moment we first spoke on the phone, to hugging goodbye the morning after our wedding day, she was nothing short of amazing.
Nothing was too much to ask and her attention to detail is impeccable. With so many changes made to our wedding due to Covid19, Tracey removed (most of!) the stress and we felt safe in the knowledge that all was in hand and we would have the wedding day of our dreams.
Planning a wedding from a different country can definitely have its challenges but with Tracey speaking Italian and being able to communicate between us and the suppliers, it meant that nothing was lost in translation - everyone was very much on the same page and we were able to create such a beautiful day.
Although our wedding went from 130 people to just 11, Tracey made every effort to ensure that our day was still just as special and as magical as it would have been pre Covid! Tracey really connected with our vision and understood us as a couple, which made the whole process and experience so enjoyable - I miss our constant emails and Whatsapp chats!
We can't thank Tracey enough for everything she did for us and our families during the run up and on the day of our wedding - without a doubt, the best wedding planner EVER!
Orchestrating 3 days worth of events in a small town outside of a small city in Italy for a bunch of Americans (several of whom were not particularly sophisticated travelers) is no easy feat, but Tracey and her team not only orchestrated it but it went off without a hitch.
I still receive praise for Tracey’s work to this day. Many of my guests were so impressed with her they are now friendly on social media, and many of them bring up how amazing her work was every time we speak to this day! Tracey worked tirelessly for me for over a year and spoke to me literally almost every week on Skype to go through details so that everything was perfect.
When the big weekend came, I watched my vision come to life and I honestly have never felt so relaxed and happy. I did not worry about a thing the entire weekend, and was able to soak in every beautiful minute. And getting to know someone I am now happy to call a friend through the whole process has been the cherry on top.
Hiring Tracey and Lusso Events was the smartest decision I made for my wedding and made ALL of the difference!

Without Lusso Events, we would never have been able to plan our dream wedding in Tuscany, Italy! Tracey and her team thought of every last detail to make sure our day was as special and stress-free as possible.
Planning a destination wedding in Italy from NYC seemed nearly impossible to us at first, but after speaking with Tracey we knew we were in good hands.
Tracey took the time to listen to all of our wants and needs and went above and beyond to make them happen. We couldn't recommend Tracey and Lusso Events enough to help plan your destination wedding in Italy. If you want a gorgeous, well-organized, stunning wedding in beautiful Italy, look no further than Lusso Events!
For our wedding, we wanted a really special location, so we found the most beautiful island ISC. This beautiful island led us to you Tracey, the most amazing wedding planner anyone could wish for. We first met in Venice after several Skype calls, but meeting you in person was even nicer.
We really felt in the right hands with your kind and warm-hearted personality paired with professionality. You read all our wishes almost from our mind and transformed them into our dream wedding!
We would not change one single thing from our big day and most importantly not our wedding planner. You made it special for us.
Tracey was an absolute godsend when planning our wedding in Tuscany from NYC. Although I loved making all of the design decisions, it was great to have Tracey there (and Always accessible either by chat or video for months leading up to the wedding) to help bounce ideas off of and guide us logistically.
As a professional in the industry for many years, she also had a bunch of great connections and was able to get us great deals with certain vendors. She was our home base for whenever things needed to be delivered ahead of time, so there was less for us to pack in our suitcases.
She and her lovely assistant took all of our amazon goods, and hand picked purchases she made around Italy, packed them in a van, and drove 6+ hours to our destination. Could not have done any of that without her!
On the day leading up to the wedding and on the day-of, her team was an integral part in maintaining order and in dealing with last minute unforeseen logistical issues that involved the caterer, guest seating arrangements, and the weather.
Tracey is one of the kindest, most accommodating, and organized people I know. She took over in places I could not, and truly made our dream wedding come true.
Organising a wedding in a foreign country is difficult enough, having to do it over and over due to a global pandemic was truly stressful. Tracey and her Lusso Events team were wonderful throughout. Her positive 'can do' attitude, her familiarity and good relationship with all the suppliers and most of all her enthusiasm, made sure we never doubted our decision to hold out for a dream Tuscan wedding. When we eventually made it to Italy we had the most amazing day - everything ran smoothly with any last minute problems or changes being dealt with quickly and efficiently so that we had nothing to worry about except enjoying ourselves - perfect!
Thank you Tracey for enhancing everything, communicating with us throughout and helping us have a joyful weekend we will never forget.
Tracey and the team at Lusso Events are worth their weight in gold! When we decided to book a destination wedding we were apprehensive as we had no idea where to begin. We had absolutely no reason to be as Tracey had it all under control. Two years, a pandemic and lots of video calls and emails later all of our dreams came true in the beautiful hills of Tuscany.
Tracey is a complete professional who knows her stuff. Over the years that we got to know her she listened to our every whim and maintained such a positive outlook when we worried about the Covid impact on our wedding- keeping me sane in the process! She really took the time to get to know both of us during the wedding planning process and supported us in organising a day that so many guests complimented was just so authentically ‘us’.
The wedding day itself was an absolute dream come true and I felt completely relaxed and at ease as Tracey and the team had everything under control. I can honestly say we had the best day of our lives and it’s because we knew we were in such safe hands.
So many of our guests commented on the perfect organisation of the day and the fantastic job of team Lusso.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We could write a book about how amazing Tracey was as the wedding planner for our 120 person wedding in Tuscany! We live in California, so needed someone reliable and diligent 'on the ground' in Italy who could push things along without any prompting from us (as we both have busy jobs and lives). I can confidently say she did this and so much more.
She was a consistently calm presence, even towards the end when we were both pretty frazzled (and she was dealing with 10+ vendors for three days worth of events). Tracey was patient, even as we took a long time to decide on various choices that needed to be made. But most importantly of all, she completely understood our vision from the beginning, delivered on everything she promised, and totally exceeded our expectations when the weekend finally rolled around.
We could go on and on about our appreciation for Tracey and her team. But in short she was organized, presented multiple different options, was cost conscious when we needed her to be, helped us make decisions without getting frustrated, handled the vast majority of vendor planning and coordination, and then on the weekend delivered a totally seamless experience. We could not recommend Tracey more highly. Not only is she an incredible wedding planner, but she is also a lovely human being that we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know (probably way too well if you asked her) throughout the wedding planning process!
Tracey and the Lusso Events team truly made our dream of a perfect Tuscan destination wedding come true. We first contacted Tracey following our engagement in 2020 where she warmly agreed to work with us. Over the 2 years leading up to our wedding, Tracey ensured that the planning process was not only seamless, but enjoyable!
In addition to finding a phenomenal wedding planner, we also found a friend in Tracey. She really put in the time and effort to get to know us as a couple in order to make our wedding as personal and special as possible. Our beautiful wedding situated in the rolling hills of Tuscany at Villa Catignano was exactly tailored to our style and preference – we truly could not have asked for more. Although we will miss our frequent WhatsApp chats, videocalls and emails, we know that we will always be in touch!
Tracey’s attention to detail, hands-on approach, and ability to assist us whenever needed are only a few components to what made our experience with Tracey so special. The professional relationships that Tracey shares with the venues and vendors in Italy constantly assured us that we would receive nothing short of the best quality service. We knew all along that we were in good and extremely capable hands!
We attribute our wedding’s success amidst a global pandemic and travel uncertainties to Tracey. Without her support and patience, we truly would not have had the wedding of our dreams. We absolutely love how every memory from our Wedding includes Tracey and her team’s phenomenal service and professionalism.
For any newly engaged couple who is looking to plan a destination wedding in the beautiful country of Italy, we cannot recommend Tracey and Lusso Events enough!
Thank you, Lusso Events for creating and facilitating the most perfect wedding experience for us.
With love from Canada!
