He has been inducted into the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD), The American Academy of Floriculture (AAF) and Professional Floral Communicators International (PFCI) .

In 2005, Ian was given the honor by the Society to serve as "Floral Design Chairperson" for the second-term inauguration of President George W. Bush. As "Floral Design Chairperson", Ian helped in the selection and management of the 160 florists picked from across the country to create the floral decorations needed for the many events surrounding the inauguration.

Absolutely gorgeous! They knew everything I could want even before I wanted it. They were sweet and attentive. They were always communicating and keeping us up to date. Extremely flexible and understanding since we lived far away and exceeded all expectations from the first meeting

Ian Prosser, AAF, AIFD, PFCI, NDSF*, is simply brilliant. I’ve been familiar with his work for almost a decade, so I wasn’t surprised at all — but my wedding guests had never seen anything so spectacular. It was so fun watching them running around and snapping photos with the decor. I work for the floral industry and definitely had my choice of “suitors” for my wedding flowers, but the choice was obvious. When I close my eyes, I can still smell the tent at my reception — it was full of garden roses, gardenias and jasmine vine. My husband immediately remarked that it felt like we were in a botanical garden. In addition to his floral expertise, Ian helped me make smart decisions regarding colors, table linens, flatware etc. The end result was perfection.

*all these acronyms represent his many advanced accredidations

I had the pleasure of working with Ian, Zoe and Margot for my wedding this past weekend, and they were INCREDIBLE! The flowers and displays were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. For the past few days, I've had guests contacting me and asking me who did the flowers, because they were simply stunning! The experience was seamless, magical and surreal! They even brought in my mom and I before the wedding to see samples of the designs they would create for our wedding. I told them my vision, and they brought to life! I recommend Botanica and their team of experts with the highest regard! Thank you for an amazing job!!!
