We researched a handful of floral vendors, Distinctive Floral Designs was recommended by our vendor site. My mom and I fell in love when we first met Alison. She is so warm and lovely. She has many wedding photo books, which can really help if you aren’t sure of your vision. Alison asked me several questions regarding the wedding, things I never even thought of, that really helped capture the feel and gave me direction. Like others have said she was able to advise us on linens, place settings, and chair recommendations to really make a cohesive look. She is an overall great resource and supporter of your happiness. Her expertise was a huge help to our planning process. We had no stress when it came to our flowers. We received numerous compliments and hope the team receives many referrals! Distinctive Floral Designs is extremely talented. You won’t be disappointed. The team dedicates themselves to your event and I would highly recommend them for your wedding!

My husband and I had the most incredible time planning our wedding florals with Alison. Our wedding held in May of 2015, at Daughter's of the American Revolution in Washington, DC, was nothing short of spectacular and stunningly elegant.

Her incredible attention to detail and respect to our vision was one the most delightful parts of our wedding planning. She sources the most beautiful and variance of blooms to ensure that your style, colors and desires are met. She also had highly thoughtful insights and is very knowledgable regarding styles and blooms. We were grateful to have worked with her, and honored for our beautiful blooms to be a centerpiece of our special day. We had sought to work with her after seeing her stunning arrangements at another friends wedding in DC. I have and will continue to recommend Alison's talent to everyone seeking stunning arrangements for their personal, corporate and family events.

I cannot articulate how beautiful her results are and the ease of working with her and her team. Our wedding guests continue to mention how stunning her work was and added lots of pictures of themselves with Alison's blooms at our wedding to their social media pages! #gorgeous

Alison and her team are wonderful. I planned our wedding from 3 states away so the first time she and I met was about 2 months before our wedding. Flowers were one of the details I was not too concerned about and really let my mom take the wheel. Alison is so warm and fun to work with and REALLY knows her stuff! She was conscious of budget while also making everything as elegant and high-quality as we wanted. I wanted very specific centerpiece holders and they found them!! Our centerpieces turned out EXACTLY as I wanted for our reception and all of the bouquets were so beautiful. I'm also obsessed with the aisle arrangements they did for the church in addition to a beautiful garland they hand-wove for the staircase at our reception venue. We also needed another boutonniere 30 minutes before our ceremony and they whipped one up on the spot! BOOK THEM!!!

Helping my daughter plan her wedding in a different state was a challenge but Alison and her team of designers made our experience one that will hold many wonderful memories in our hearts for a lifetime. When we first met Alison we could tell she was extremely knowledgeable in her field of design, that she took a sincere interest in knowing what my daughter’s expectations and desires were, and that she was a creative person who would pay close attention to detail. She made great suggestions and worked with us until we felt we had the perfect floral arrangements in mind. When my husband and I walked in the reception room before our guests arrived, we were delighted to see such magnificent, breathtaking floral arrangements. They looked amazing. We received many compliments throughout the evening and are thrilled that we can look at them in our pictures and video for years to come. One could not work with a better team of designers.

I'm not really into flowers. I know nothing about them, couldn't name more than a handful of varieties, and am fairly ambivalent about them. In spite of that, I knew I wanted floral centerpieces for our wedding because I think that add such an elegant touch.

When I met with Alison, I only had vague directions to give her such as colors and that I liked flowers that had a lot of texture. She spent a lot of time gauging the overall look for the wedding -- she wanted to know what my dress was like, what my flower girls would be wearing, how we would describe our wedding, etc. I thought this was wonderful because I felt that she had a handle on what we were going for without actually talking extensively about flowers.

Throughout planning, Alison was a great resource whenever I had questions about what we should do with all aspects of our table decor and was a great person to bounce ideas off of.

On the day of the wedding, Alison arrived with centerpieces, ceremony flowers (essentially alter flowers, but without the church), candles galore, and bouquets. All of them were wonderful and all of them are holding up nearly a week later!

We went to a few floral shops to get quotes before selecting Distinctive Floral Designs. It was a little bit more expensive than the other shops, but notice I still gave the value a 5 star rating. Other shops charged so much more for delivery, set-up charges, rentals, etc., so I thought that we got more flowers for our money!

I absolutely loved working with Alison and I'm trying to think of when I could possibly use her services again!

Alison and her team provided the florals for our wedding and rehearsal dinner and were a complete pleasure to work with. Hiring her was one of the best wedding decisions we made. From the beginning, she was responsive, flexible, and extremely knowledgeable. Despite meeting and going over everything we wanted and our vision, I was still amazed at how beautiful the florals were when I actually saw them on my wedding day. Alison far exceeded my expectations. I can't tell you how many times I turned to my husband during the reception and said, "I can't believe how amazing the flowers look." All of the blooms were beautiful and we have received so many compliments on them. Alison and her team are truly talented and know what they're doing. Alison did an outstanding job of working within our budget while still perfectly bringing my vision to life. She was sensitive to our budget throughout the planning process and always made sure there would not be any surprise fees. I would not hesitate to use Alison again for any future floral needs and would highly recommend her services!!

Alison is wonderful to work with. From our first meeting I knew she understood our vision and the flowers would be beautiful. Meeting with her was like having tea with a good friend!
She is the only florist we consulted who asked to see a picture of the wedding dress to get an idea of style and proportion. The bouquets and centerpieces were perfect. She also designed a beautiful chuppah (wedding canopy) which was the focal point of the ceremony.
She was also conscientious about our budget.
Alison and her team are the best

I LOVE ALISON DE WIT and her team at Distinctive Floral Designs!!! She was absolutely fantastic and made the whole process so much fun! I could have chatted with her for hours and I think my mother actually did! Their work is just beautiful- romantic, elegant, and lush! I was able to relax and not worry about the flowers because I knew that whatever she did would look beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful chuppah for my ceremony and she had a whole team setting it up. We met with 2 other florists and neither of them asked us about our budget like Alison did. She was also flexible and helped us think of ways to reuse flowers for both the ceremony and reception. I only wish I could have spent more time with her!

When I first met Alison I had very limited knowledge about wedding flowers and lacked a clear vision of what I wanted. Alison was so patient with me. She walked me through a ton of her portfolios and asked me many questions. She really took the time to get to know me and I loved her attention to detail. Her passion for what she does stood out in our conversations. When I received her proposal she had written out every small detail and painted a clear picture of her floral designs.

After speaking with a couple of other well known floral vendors in the DC area it was very clear to me that Alison was the front runner. She was the only one who I felt had really tried to get to know me as a client. She never rushed me in the decision making process and took time to explain a ton of things to me about weddings, flowers, lighting, etc. Her customer service and attention to detail completely won me over.

On the day of the wedding the flowers and decor of the ceremony and reception were stunning. We had so many quests come up to us during and after the event asking for our florist's contact information. We were truly blessed to have Alison as part of the team of people who made our wedding day so magical!

The best vendor for our wedding! I had tried to deal with other florists prior to finding out about Distinctive Floral Designs. Other florists took forever to respond and quoted astronomical costs. Alison de Witt was extremely sweet and so fast at responding to my e-mails (I am a very picky bride!). Her high centerpiece prices were cheaper than other florists' low ceterpiece prices. Alison exceeded my expectations with her floral masterpieces and I received many compliments from my guests. Flowers were delivered on time and I am confident I chose the best florist in the DC area.

Thank you so much, Alison!
