    Amazing job!

    I can’t say enough good things about Jana and her girls! They did an absolutely AMAZING job at our wedding at Brooklyn Arts Center. She got all of the vendors on the same page and made the perfect plan for our special day! The rain finally stopped about an hour before our ceremony but I would have never even known it was raining all day because Jana stayed so calm and always had a smile on her face. She got all of our guys, in the right places at the right time, which was a big job alone :) They decorated all of the tables perfectly and cleaned them up and organized them after which made it so easy for us to pick up. Jana is so awesome to work with and I would highly recommend to her anyone!! She’s a life saver and I can’t thank her enough!!! 💕

    The Best Day Ever

    Where to begin with how grateful Design A Dream Events was!!! I did initial meetings and phone calls with several event planning companies. Immediately on the phone I knew Jana was the event planner for me. Her bubbly personality and energy could be felt through the phone. Honestly without Jana and her team being by my side to make sure everything was not only on time but ran perfectly smoothly was so comforting. The girls were so sweet and adorable and had a big smile on throughout the whole night! I give them full credit for our flawless big day. Everyone kept asking how stressful planning a big wedding was and my answer ... with a great wedding planning team it’s not stressful at all! When I didn’t know what I wanted her recommendations were better than I ever expected! I remember after getting ready and walking into my venue before anyone arrived and thinking wow this is above and beyond what I envisioned before this day!! Absolute perfection. Looking back on the weekend there wasn’t a thing I would have changed!! Thank you Design A Dream Events for creating my picture perfect day and night!! Appreciate you ladies and will without a doubt recommend their services to any bride and groom!!!!♥️ our hearts are so full!! Thank you all again for making this the best day of our lives.
