I cannot say enough good things about Dan. As a florist myself, I knew I might be a pain to deal with when it came to designing my vision, but Dan just let me talk and then pulled together arrangements that looked like he had taken them directly from my brain- but better, Our initial consultation happened over the phone as I was planning my wedding out of state. He followed up the call with an email explaining prices, and a detailed description of every piece we would be getting. A few months before the wedding we set up a sample at his shop in Suffern. After chatting through a few things we got to see our centerpieces and I instantly fell in love, everything was simply perfect. He even managed to get some of my favorite (usually out of season at the time) Ox Blood Peonies into my bouquet, and honestly I'm still crying over how perfect everything was. Dan goes above and beyond for his clients; he is always available to talk through any worries you may have, and I'm so glad we chose to work with him.

I first came to Dramatic Innovation for floral services and immediately knew Dan was the one I wanted for my wedding. He totally understood "my vision" and I was confident that he would be able to pull together my event with a cohesiveness that some florists just don't produce. When I came to discover he also did Day of Coordination, it was a no-brainer for us.
The flowers at our wedding were AMAZING; the whole theme/look of the wedding came together beautifully because of Dan. As for the Day of Coordination services, I cannot rave enough. The catchphrase of the day was, "Don't worry, Dan's got it." Any problem or issue that came up was quickly resolved by him. I had no worries that day, which is the way it should be. My family and I were able to just enjoy the wedding, instead of dealing with tiny issues and dilemmas.
On the way home from the reception, I said, "Let's get married again so we can have Dan there!" haha, that's how much we all loved him! He's amazing!

Dan and his team at Dramatic Innovations truly blew us away from the moment we started to work together! Though I came in with a looong list of things I wanted for our wedding (and an even longer Pinterest board), Dan was incredibly receptive, found ways to incorporate each element, and even provided additional ideas and concepts to add to make the day (the whole weekend, really) even better!
Dan's personality and love for what he does makes the whole process enjoyable. He is responsive over emails and calls, always excited to talk about new things he's discovered, and generally just brings a positive attitude to the experience. He was even willing to let me purchase and DIY a few of the elements to make our wedding even more personal.
One of the BEST decisions we made with Dan was to have him do the day-of coordination. Although he really shouldn't call it that, it should be "month-of coordination"! He took over with all of our wedding vendors so that we wouldn't have to field last minute questions leading up to the big day, he put together a timeline and told everyone when they needed to be where, and he managed the day so seamlessly that it was 100% stress-free (and this is coming from a control freak who has a really hard time "letting go")! During the day, he ran the ceremony, coordinated with our photographers to make sure we got every shot, worked with the DJ to get the music just right, and connected with the shuttles to ensure everyone arrived!
The decor for our whole day was so stunning and beautiful; better than we had even dreamed of! All of our guests just could not stop talking about it, and it was the perfect backdrop for our perfect day. I feel like I cannot even begin to describe how amazing it was. From the custom ribbon wall and gerber daisies in our ceremony, to the giant balloons dotting our cocktail hour, to the perfectly preppy and personal tablescapes in our reception! And that's not even counting the bouquets and boutonnieres!
