Ellen did an absolutely wonderful job with the flowers for my wedding! She had a very personal touch, and she took me to the flower mart so that I could get a better idea of the flowers that were available to choose from. She made several samples for me and tweaked them over and over again until we had the exact colors that I was looking for. She was so patient and kind as we traded one shade of pink for another and one type of lavender rose for another. When Ellen walked into my hotel room with the bouquets on the day of the wedding, my bridesmaids literally oohed and ahhed at the sight of the flowers. I got so many compliments from guests and even the photographer about how beautiful the flowers were. I would highly recommend Ellen to any bride in the Virginia-DC-Maryland area. She worked tirelessly to ensure that I loved my flowers on my wedding day!

Ellen providing the chuppah, flowers, and candles for our wedding. She met with my husband and me at her home, discussing style, colors, preferences, and budget. As with all weddings, budgets are tough, and Ellen worked with us to find a combination that met our budget. Then she took us to the flower wholesaler to look at different options for both flowers and candles. Then she provided three examples of centerpieces for us to chose from ahead of time. She was very helpful and responsive through the entire wedding planning process.

The bouquets and boutineers were beautiful and fresh for our evening ceremony. Whites and creams for me and my husband, blues for the bridesmaids and groomsmen, plus something specials for our moms and dads and grandparents. The chuppah was so lovely - exactly as I imagined. She stayed at the location to help flip the ballroom and put the centerpieces on the tables. We had half flower arrangements and half floating candles in tall vases. The room just sparkled when we walked in for dinner. Ellen was an amazing guide to the world of flowers and brought continuity and a glow to the ceremony and reception. I would highly recommend her.

My husband and I were delighted with our wedding flowers! From the very first, Ellen and Hal took the time to really listen to what we wanted - style, colors, requirements - and from their experience, had lots of suggestions for what would work well. I met them a second time on a Saturday at a wholesaler and got to handpick the flowers I liked most. And they spent the time sorting various colors of red roses and chartreuse hydrangea and tea leaves on a cart until one combination just popped, and we both agreed that was "it". I could feel their excitement about the art of flower arrangements - they really cared about achieving a "look" and one that would create the right mood for our event, match our personalities. And I wasn't the pickiest bride, but I'm a painter, and I LOVE color.

We felt very welcome to change our minds at any time up until the week of the event! And on the day of the event, they were on time (an hour ahead) and stayed to help attach all the boutonnieres and even arranged my veil while I stood outside the church awaiting the big entrance. My bouquet with its dark red roses and green hydrangea and a few popping green tulips was a cascading colorful display of natural, joyful beauty. True artistry.

I recently attended a friend's less traditional backyard wedding on a beautiful spring day in the Hamptons. The flowers Ellen and Hal arranged in tall oblong clear vases with orange and blue glass balls inside stood on the long white tables underneath the white tents and simply transformed the place. The fanned leaves and pale orange blossoms created an atmosphere that transported the guests on a Saturday afternoon to someplace else exotic.
