In July, 2017 Susan Bloom, a freelance writer for the Asbury Park Press was kind enough to interview me about finding my passion, in addition, Doug Hood took some sweet photos of the farm. As I continue on this path I am thankful every day for my not only being afforded the opportunity to follow my dream, but for so many new and wonderful people that I have met along the way.

Couldn't Be Anymore Perfect! From the first phone conversation I knew Dana was going to be a perfect fit. My husband and I were planning our wedding in Avon, NJ from Boston, MA and wanted someone we could trust to take our ideas and make them into something beautiful without having to go over every tiny detail. Dana did that and more! She understood everything we wanted and created bouquets, centerpieces, and an arbor that made the day! She delivered the flowers, set everything up, and organized the tables. Not once was I worried about the flowers or set up. I knew they were in great hands! Dana is an extremely skilled florist and wonderfully sweet person. I highly recommend her for any and all of your flower needs! Caitlin & Gary - September, 2018
Thank you so so so much for being so awesome to work with (and of course for all the flowers)! You captured all of the thoughts and ideas I didn't even know I had and created the most beautiful and perfect bouquets and arrangements I’ve ever seen. You have a real talent; thanks for making my wedding so perfect. Kelly and Mark - September 2018.
Dana was so knowledgeable and helpful in planning our wedding flowers. From teaching us about the variety of flowers she has growing in her beautiful garden, to explaining her brilliant visions of floral arrangements. Matching colors and textures, bringing attention to the natural beauty of the flowers and how they compliment each other, Dana has mastered the art of floral design. Dana was so thorough in getting to know us to assure that our relaxed personalities came across in every way possible through our flowers. We will forever be grateful for such an enjoyable and easygoing flower planning process with Dana; something that could have brought so much stress into our planning was made one of the simplest activities with phenomenal results.- Meghan & Ryan, June 2018
Dana was by far my favorite & most flexible wedding vendor. I'm an Art Teacher and had LOTS of creative ideas for how I wanted my DIY centerpieces to be arranged. Dana worked with me to include all of my DIY ideas from handmade ceramic succulent pots to creating arrangements in square-shaped jars that I collected for over a year before our wedding. Do yourself a favor and book Dana as your florist. She cares so deeply about what she does, and your satisfaction is her #1 priority!- Nicole & Bill - October 2017
Working with Dana was phenomenal! She was great with helping us navigate our options, which was SO important for us as we didn’t have a clear vision of exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments from our guests on the flowers - Dana did such a beautiful job designing unique bouquets and centerpieces that matched the style and feel of the wedding. In addition, she created a gorgeous floral comb and decorated our chuppah. We also loved visiting the farm and seeing everything Dana grows! We can’t recommend Dana enough - both the experience and the end results were amazing! - Lindsay - September 2017
"Dana is the absolute best. We recently used Dana for our March 2017 wedding in Ocean Grove, NJ and could not be more thrilled with her work. It was so much fun working and planning with her. She is so creative and attentive to detail and she absolutely listened to everything I wanted and more than delivered. The service is so personal and exceptional. If you are looking to work with someone who can really tailor to your needs and work to create your vision look no further. Really can't say enough good things about Dana and her work and would highly recommend her services to any bride or individual needing a florist. " - Maura & Chris, March 2017
I used Dana for the bouquets for my wedding and I was so thrilled with the results. I was having trouble deciding what I wanted for my flowers until I walked into Calgo Gardens and saw her arrangements for sale. I quickly grabbed her card and was able to meet her. She is such a sweet woman who is so passionate about what she does. She graciously invited us to check out her garden and when she gave us the tour, you could see how much she loves what she does. I put all of my trust in her and she more than held up her end. - Kelly September 2016
