Flowers by Dan
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Dan created the floral arrangements for our daughter's wedding on Labor Day weekend 2011 and we couldn't have been happier with his beautiful work and his delightful personality. We interviewed a number of floral designers before we found Dan. Some of them felt that it was their role to tell us what we wanted and how much we should pay for it. Others either weren't listening to us or just didn't seem to get what we wanted.

Dan listened, confirmed that he understood what we were saying and then showed us pictures of his past work to help clarify that we were all on the same page. More importantly, when we weren't exactly sure of what we wanted, or we weren't exactly clear in describing what was in our heads, Dan was always on the spot with more pictures or even with impromptu arrangements of flowers he had in the studio to help get a clear understanding and agreement on what he was going to create for us.

That said, even with all the pictures and live demos, what Dan delivered to our event exceeded our best expectations in every way. The colors, the variety of the flowers in the arrangements and the sheer beauty of his work was downright breathtaking. We got so many comments from our guests specifically mentioning the beautiful flowers. This was particularly true of the awesome bouquet he made for our daughter (exactly what she wanted) and the very unique centerpieces we wanted. Dan was on time and incredibly helpful and efficient with his set-up. He had the exquisite chuppah up and ready well ahead of photo time, he pinned on all the men's boutonnieres (so they all looked good for the pictures!) and when the pictures went long, he was ready to quickly finish setting up the seating area and aisle before our guests arrived. He even had plenty of extra rose petals for the aisle when the wind kicked up and scattered the original batch! His creativity in repurposing the flowers from the chuppah for the cake table and the sweetheart table was great and I'm sure was one of the reasons why he was able to do everything he did within our budget.

So, would we recommend Dan for your event? Yes -- 150%! He is an artist and a gentleman. That makes him a breeze to work with and a vendor you can trust! When it comes to flowers, Dan's your man!
