What People Say

Over the years we have been fortunate to work with the most delightful clients who refer us to others. We couldn’t be happier to assist in making lasting memories with you.


“I don’t even know where to begin with thanks. I’m still glowing. You and your team masked a natural disaster (massive windstorm), and many guests have said its the best wedding they’ve ever been to. It was truly the party of a lifetime. You and your staff made it all so seamless and easy. Thank you for providing such strong scaffolding for an event- all we had to do was fill in good, fun people as guests! You do amazing work, and while I doubt you’re ever in need of a reference, we would always be more than happy to provide one. Oh so happy.” Meg & Larry, Washington, DC

“We wanted to personally thank you for making our wedding truly amazing in every way. Your expertise, responsiveness and organization made planning a wedding with a newborn a complete breeze! We never had to worry about whether or not things would run smoothly – every event was perfectly planned and managed, and every component far exceeded our expectations. To call out just a few examples: Your list of vendors not only linked us with the best of the best of Charlottesville but saved us a lot of money. You did an exceptional job maintaining order and efficiently with managing such a larger wedding party and incorporating our special requests. On my wedding day I was one of the lucky brides that TRULY was able to relax because you were already one step ahead of us. Enlisting your help was the best thing we ever did in executing our perfect wedding. We cannot thank you enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams.” Love, John & Sarah, Charlottesville, VA

“Barbara Lundgren and her planning staff coordinate for brides on a regular basis here at King Family Vineyards. They are one of our preferred Wedding Planners in the area. We have had an outstanding working relationship with them. Barb is always well organized and checks in often to make sure she and her assistants are working within the parameters and policies of King Family Vineyards. They do an excellent job of representing and attending to the needs of their clients (brides, grooms, and family members). They meet often here in the months leading up to the wedding, to work through the needs and expectations of the couple prior to the wedding. It is important to us that they exhibit a standard of excellence in their professionalism as it reflects on our venue to the guests who attend the wedding.”- Kelly, King Family Vineyards

“On behalf of my wife, Pat, and myself, I would like to thank you for all your work to make our daughter’s wedding day such an exciting and special one. From her arrival until we all got away from there close to midnight, everything went as smoothly and professional as I have ever seen. I’m so very thankful that Sarah and Joyee chose you to handle all the arrangements. I enjoyed chatting with your staff (and also with you )-even though you all were busy you took the time to make us feel comfortable.” Bill, Bedford, VA

“Well, it’s a year later and as we reflect back on our wedding day, we remain speechless at the service provided by Barb Wired. Although Barb was working another event that weekend, she worked feverishly behind the scenes gathering exactly what we wanted, how we wanted it while Iris directed a most spectacular and wonderful wedding day at Montfair. Honestly the words are not coming to us because there are no words for the confidence and serenity Barb Wired brought to the table. These folks have it together they listen to their clients, they are informative, and you cannot – you will not – find a more personable, reasonable, and organized production as what Barb Wired delivers. Thank you Barb for the extra assistance the following day on Sunday and to Iris and all those who assisted you in your efforts, we appreciate you and will always value the time, effort, and consideration exuded on us that special day on which we began our new life together!” Lloyd & Heather, Fairfax, VA

We could not have made it through our wedding planning process without Barbara. As my Mom said, “The best money we spent!” Though my husband and I live in California, we knew we wanted our wedding to be in Charlottesville as the town holds a special place in our hearts for various reasons. As I began planning, I quickly became overwhelmed by the challenges of organizing a wedding from a distance. I realized I was not familiar with local venues and vendors, and on top of that, a three hour time difference and miles of distance made coordinating phone calls and meetings difficult. We hired Barbara and everything changed. Barbara is very well connected and highly respected within the Charlottesville wedding industry. After our first conversation, I knew I was in good hands. Planning became fun as she guided us every step of the way. Despite the distance between us, Barbara always made time for my calls and was always extremely prompt in her email responses. She is a busy lady, but she always made me feel like I was her first priority—I truly don’t know how she did it! We are forever grateful to Barbara and to her team for working so hard to create such a perfect day for us. Through the craziness of the day, they were always smiling and ready to jump in and assist with whatever was needed. I know everything ran so smoothly because of the hard work of dedicated and passionate people. My husband and I were able to enjoy our guests and relax at our reception knowing Barbara and her team were taking care of everything behind the scenes. Seeing Barbara the morning of my wedding was like seeing a friend. Aside from being an incredible event planner, therapist 🙂 and voice of reason, Barbara is a lovely, warm, caring person and I look forward to staying in touch. To those beginning the wedding planning process. do yourselves a favor and hire Barbara. I promise she’ll take great care of you! Abigail, Manhattan Beach, CA

“I cannot say enough good things about Barb and her team. We were on a very reasonable budget and my first thought that having a coordinator was more of a luxury than we needed. My main concern was the logistics of the weekend and I did not want my family to be worrying about vendors, deliveries, etc. After one meeting with Barb, we had gotten enough inside information on how to get things done in Charlottesville that we knew we would benefit greatly from her help. Now that we have been through the entire process, I cannot imagine doing it without her. She is extremely responsive, organized and good at keeping other vendors on task. We had a fantastic wedding, and I really believe that was due to the very thorough planning and organization of Barb Wired.” Shelby, Washington DC

Without exception, clients have sung the praises of Barbara Lundgren, and we at Nutmeg have been secure in the knowledge that our interests have been protected. We could not be happier with Barb Wired.” – Alan N. Culbertson, Owner – Nutmeg Farm
