Vendor Review - The Flowers

my balcony in the rain


It's a rainy day here in NY, and so I figure that if I can't go out and smell the flowers here, instead I can review the beautiful flowers from my wedding....

My wedding decor was mostly candle light, but I wanted some gorgeous and simple flowers to help make the tables more elegant. Everything needed to be done perfectly, and Dana (pronounced more like "Donna"), from Events by Stylish in Queens NY, was the only person I trusted!

Dana is one of the warmest people I've ever met, and I would recommend her ten thousand times over. She is breathe of fresh air during the stressful time of wedding planning. She is a real person that loves what she does and it shows in her work... she's warm, friendly, creative and oooober talented!  I told her what my budget was, and she was able to work with me to produce stunning florals within that number, which is a big deal when it comes to flowers and weddings.

Dana and I seemed to work perfectly together - I knew exactly the look I wanted, and she knew exactly what flowers to use to turn my vision into reality! I told her I wanted all the centerpieces to be white and to all be different, but flow together perfectly. The dinner tent was envisioned as ethereal, while the cocktail hour a little more modern. Dana nailed it!

Check out some pictures:

Oh! And how could I possibly forget about my AMAZING bouquet? I fell in love with a bouquet on the Events by Stylish Website, and threw all creativity out the window. I wanted that one, and that one only! My favorite part is the beautiful vintage style beading on the stems. Amazing. I remember holding onto it for dear life walking down the aisle, and I'm pretty sure I slept with it on my nightstand that night.





Thank you, Dana, for being so amazing to work with! You made me smile so many times when I desperately needed it :)

  1. Dear Jackie,

    It was a real pleasure working with you on your flowers for your wedding day! You always had a smile on your face, which made everything we talked about even more fun. I especially loved how you decided to get married at the location where you both met. And how your wedding was a family effort. From your dad's wine, to grandma's peonies, and your beautiful invitations that you yourself designed.

    I'm so happy you loved your custom bouquet, because I feel that the bridal bouquet is the most important floral piece that I can create for a bride on her wedding day.

    I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your sweet compliments, which brought me to tears. I love what I do because it's rewarding to hear back from such a thankful and happy bride. I wish you both a lifetime of beautiful memories and an awsome journey together. I will never forget you :)

    Dana
