“Live events have everything that I love,” Caruso says. “They have elements of theater, storytelling, hospitality and branding.”
In 2002, Caruso moved back to his hometown of Milwaukee and founded Dynamic Events. He started small, operating out of a 200-square foot rented storage space his first year. After planning his first wedding for a Chicago couple, he started to gain attention for his lavish and thoughtfully planned occasions. The business began to grow, and he developed the signature flair that has made his name a recognizable brand.
“There really is nothing else quite like a Dynamic Events by David Caruso experience.” – David Caruso
“My work is really about discovering the story of each and every event, the heart and soul, and turning that into an experience,” he says. “It’s so much more than making a place look pretty. It’s about infusing the experience in every way with the spirit of hospitality. That really is what makes my events different from so many others.”
While he started out planning mostly weddings, Caruso since expanded his business and now plans charitable galas, private parties, corporate gatherings and more both in Milwaukee and across the globe. Dynamic Events now plans around 25 events per year. He works with his clients from conception to execution to create a signature, unique, unforgettable experience for the guests.
“The events that really stand out to me are where we transform spaces,” Caruso says. “It might have been The Pfister Hotel or the Milwaukee Art Museum, but you would never know because of the transformation. Watching the guests experience that is extremely rewarding.”
