What others are saying...
I had the pleasure to work closely with Lena for a year. During that time, Lena proved to be a competent and dedicated event planner, and a wonderful person to work with.
Planning an event can be a stressful task where unexpected situations occur, with a constant need to find quick solutions. I believe that is Lena's strongest asset - efficient problem solving – which sets her apart from all other people I have worked with. Her outstanding negotiation skills are extremely valuable when organizing an event that will be exclusive and different while staying in predetermined budget. As a result, every event that Lena planned was all that the client wanted and even more.
Lena is punctual, works well within the deadlines, and has exceptional interpersonal skills. She will take time to fully understand how you have envisioned your special day. What I highly valuable in Lena is her attention to details, and a unique sense of aesthetics. Having in mind her experience in planning different types of events, including corporate occasions, weddings, concerts and festivals, she has practical input on every step in the process and can offer ideas that will make each occasion unique with a personal stamp of every client.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Lena as she will help you organize an enjoyable event that your guests will remember.
I had the pleasure of working with Lena and her team on two projects; a corporate event and a wedding. I have to say that I had never experienced event management in a more professional, relaxing and uncomplicated way. Lena is very dedicated to her work and her experience in organizing events makes everything very efficient.

Corporate event - June 16, 2016
The corporate event was an Annual Meeting from a global, leading asset management company. The event took place at the Dolder Grand in Zurich, Switzerland, and was primarily organized for the firm`s clients, which were 120 guests from pension funds, insurance companies and other institutions located in Europe, the US and Asia. A special twist to the event was the theme "football" as the UEFA European Championship took place at that time. Lena and her team came over to Zurich and transformed our event into a beautifully decorated football location that was a bit playful but still kept it's corporate character. Working together with the team was very professional, in fact you wouldn't even realize that they are there - it just felt like magic, all of the sudden everything was ready and just spot on. Being in charge of the event, I have to say that it made my life very easy from this perspective as Lena dealt with both, myself and the hotel staff in a very effective manner. A BIG thank you also from the management team of our organization, who really enjoyed the event and the atmosphere that Lena and her team were able to create.
Wedding - August 26-28, 2016
From the moment when we got in touch with Lena, which was around a year before our planned wedding date, we were sure we found the right person to help us with our special day. Our wedding took place in Belgrade, Serbia, and living outside of the country, in Zurich, Switzerland (or New York at that time) we knew that it was just impossible to plan it ourselves. From our first skype call, where we got to know each other, through thousands of emails and calls, Lena was always reachable, she asked the right questions, never hesitated to sit in the car and check out things for us, and ultimately delivered exactly what we imagined for our wedding! We never got really nervous about the organization of our wedding as she always gave us the feeling that she had everything under control, which definitely proved to be right. We basically just flew in 2 days prior to our fest and did not have to take care of anything! Since we live abroad, we had around 100 guests flying into Belgrade and another 30 locals - for 3 events (one get together, the wedding day and a brunch) and everything was just so beautifully made that we couldn't even say which day we thought was better. It was just all so amazing and special for us and we would like to once again express our sincere thankfulness to the team at "Dream Wedding by Lena"!
As a wedding photographer and filmmaker, we work on a tight bond with wedding planners, and the number one thing we appreciate is simplicity in communication. And Lena is extremely easy to work with. When it comes to planning your best day ever, we personally think this is number one thing to look for. You want someone calm, simple and understanding by your side, and Lena is a master at effortless, highly effective planning.
Lena is a capable person. She commands trustworthiness in everyday (mundane) tasks and oozes professional approach towards the work trusted upon her. Lena is a passionate worker which understands the importance of quality under the pressure of deadlines. It was really a pleasure to have worked with her and, more importantly, she was of great value to our team.
Lena is always your best choice if you are looking for a great and reliable associate. She is working for all our festivals more than 10 years and there must be a good reason for that. It is always a pleasure to have her in our team.
We have collaborated on a few projects in which her creativity played a crucial role. Due to all her characteristics she is always more than welcome visiting professor on my lectures.
