Dana,

There are so many words to describe what you did for us; amazing, beautiful, spectacular, fabulous to name a few!  My wedding flowers should be in every bride magazine out there!!!

Just as amazing as the flowers was the person who created the masterpieces at my wedding.  You, my love, are amazing and your creativity blew us away.  I could never thank you enough.  EVERYONE, was blown away by the flowers.  Thank you for everything, you are the best!!

Love Always,

Dear Dana,

Thank you so much for everything!  After watching you orchestrate our ceremony I could not believe we thought of doing it on our own.  You gave us the peace of mind we needed prior to and during the ceremony.  Now on to your other talent….Any superlative I can think of pales in comparison to the stunning flower arrangements and bouquets you created.  Our photographer commented that he had never seen a tent look so good!  Dan and I had two days to ourselves before returning to life and every time we looked at my bouquet we had placed in a vase we could not help but cry.  You certainly know how to help a sentimentalist capture the most magical day in her life.

With love and light,

Lauren and Dan Cohen

Dear Dana,

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the amazing work you did on our wedding.  The flowers were gorgeous and just what I had dreamed of.  I amso impressed that you were able to capture what I wanted despite the fact that I couldn’t articulate it…all I could tell you was what I didn’t want!

If I can ever be a reference for you, please let me know.  I am happy to sing your praises!

Thank you,

Katharine Burrage

Hi Dana,

I am just coming down out of the clouds! 
 
The wedding was wonderful start to finish!  The flowers were amazing!!!  Even more beautiful than we had imagined.  We loved the arrangement at the church and the pew cones.  The table and mantle arrangements at Myopia were breathtaking--such rich colors, creative mix of blossoms, and perfect containers for each room. You did a fantastic job with the lighting!  Who would have believed that tired old ballroom could look so beautiful?  All those votives made every room sparkle.  And the terrace...those amber lights were sensational!  The room had a very inviting glow.
 
Dana, we just cannot thank you enough!!!
 
All the best,

Dana,
 
It was an amazing day, from start to finish, and it lived up to all of my dreams and then some.
 
There aren’t words to thank you for your contributions to my wedding – before, during, and after, you were invaluable.  Your friendship and support meant the world ( still does!!).  ~ and the flowers on the day were gorgeous, memorable, and truly a reflection of Alex and I.  We’ll treasure the day forever and you were an essential part.

Dana, 
 
Just arrived home in Albany from Marisa'a wedding - YOUR FLOWERS WERE SPECTABULOUS!!!!   Marisa's bouquet was just so beautiful.  That bracelet idea is a perfect touch.  I know she will wear it with special memories of her Wedding Day!!! My gardenia wand was just so special and it was just enough and not over powering - Thank you!!.  The bracelets for Marisa's friends were outstanding - they all felt very special.  When I walked into the reception, I was blown away with your arrangements - the tall glass vases with the dramatic flowers on top were just the best.  The flowers at the "Cupcakes" were perfect.  The flowers in the church were so beautiful. You were very easy to work with, and I just wish there was someone like you here in Albany with your creativity.

Dana,
 
I want to let you know how much I appreciate you finalizing the centerpieces for me and for my mom.  They are MORE than gorgeous and my mom can't stop talking about them.  I never doubted your abilities or your vision for a second, but I certainly did get to the point where my uncertainty was stressing me out.  Having a wedding with a bicoastal wedding party is harrowing, to say the least.  The logistics are unending and sucking the life out of me - knowing that once I get home that everything is "done" is a really good feeling.  I can't thank you enough for answering the call.  You've made me happy, which is great, but even more importantly, you've made my mom happy.  She has worked her butt off for the last year planning this day for me since I am so far away.  As a result, this wedding is going to be bigger and more gorgeous than I could have ever dreamed or planned.  Right now, the only way I can really thank her is to make sure she can look back on the events with no regrets.  The best wedding present I could receive is knowing that she comes away from this wedding feeling that all her efforts were worth it.  Thank you so much for playing a part in making that a reality.
 
SEE YOU IN 2 WEEKS!  :)
 
Best,
Julia

Hi Dana,
 
I barely had a chance to say "hello" to you yesterday, but your floral designs did more than enough speaking for you. All I can say is WOW!!
They were to die for. From the wrapped orchids in the  cocktail room vases ( I  must have shot close up zooms and backlit shots of each one of them); to the tall and short table arrangements; to the bride and bridesmaid's bouquets; to the pale green cones with pink flowers lining the church pews - I was dazzled. And, I'm not one who's easy to wow. Even the simple pink cluster of flowers atop the cake was perfect. 
 
Just want to express my congratulations and appreciation to you for your lovely work. Our wedding film (or should I say, Jen and Lou's  wedding film) will be that much more beautiful as a result.
 
I'm proud and happy to work in your company.
 
Thanks!

Dana,

What can I say?  The flowers were absolutely amazing.  I had imagined they would be beautiful, but the reality was they were just exquisite and every single arrangement fit into its place so well.  We received more compliments on the flowers than on just about anything else, and I truly thank you.  The table settings were just as we had wanted in our wildest dreams, and everything was laid out to perfection.  The guests loved the books and I don't know how you did it but they just fit in so well on each table, along with the lanterns and votives.  As for the Chapel,  the entire ceremony was gorgeous and the flowers in the chapel complimented the entire wedding partie's outfits and truly made the place special.  I am right now surrounded by flowers and I am just living in a gorgeous dream world at the moment.  Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and I told Carl not to send me flowers since I am surrounded by so many beautiful arrangements left from the wedding. 

Thank you so much once again.  I truly appreciate your taking extra time to talk to Kelsey because she really did get exactly what she wanted and I thank you for listening to her.  Your creativity and professionalism is extraordinary.  Anyways, I will call you when I get my voice back(temporarily gone) but wanted to get this out right away.  I cannot wait to use you again for my youngest daughter's wedding(although hopefully not for 4-5 years) and I will certainly give your name out to all my friends and try to find reasons to use you for other family events.  I also will email you pictures once we get them.  Thanks again so much.  Jane

Hi Dana -
 
Hope all is well with you and you are hanging in with your busy season! 
 
I just wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for the amazing job you (and your designers) did on the flowers for our wedding. The bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres, welcome and ceremony arrangements - EVERYTHING came out absolutely beautiful. When I saw the reception room and all the centerpieces for the first time, I got really emotional about how beautiful everything came out!! Everything was *exactly* what I wanted and more - I was really excited and happy with how everything turned out.
 
Thank you also for all the wonderful advice you gave us on the colors, the tall callas (which a lot of people were talking about) and even down to the recommendations for the menus - you were a tremendous help and a real pleasure to work with. I will always be a recommendation if you ever need one!

Dear Dana,
 
Before time slipped away, I wanted to send you this note to thank you for your great work.  You are truly an artist. We had more comments about how beautiful the flower arrangements were.  Everyone loved your work.....But the thing I wanted to thank you for the most was how supportive and sensitive you were with Marilyn and Jessica.  If there was one vendor that they had absolute confidence in it was you.  You made a beautiful day into a spectacular day.  Thanks you for all your help and advice.    Thanks you for being so kind and thoughtful to my wife and daughter.
