Bryan at Karin's Florist listened to what I wanted and considered my budget to come up with the best flower options for me. The bouquets were beautifully done and held up well all day. The flowers were delivered on time and everything was labeled so that it was easy to distribute boutonnieres and corsages.

We worked with Bryan at Karin's and he was wonderful! He was very understanding of our budget needs and worked hard to keep up within (even under) budget! We decided about a week before our wedding that we wanted to add an arrangement to an arch that we were having. Bryan replied immediately and again took our budget into consideration! My flowers were amazing, my girls flowers were amazing and the arch flowers were beautiful!!

Bryan was the flower designer for my wedding. He is very talented! The flower arrangements were beautiful. My guests were gushing over my bouquet, the arrangement on the arch, and the table flowers.

Bryan makes a single flowers look beautiful. He did a single rose floating on a vase for decor on the cocktail hour tables.

The staff at Karin's is very professional. I was impressed at the level of costumer service they provide, very personalized, they definitely go above and beyond to ensure their customers are happy. They even have a wedding day flower hotline! In the event that the bride needs ANYTHING they provide you with a contact who is available to assist you at any time during your wedding day.

I'm extremely pleased with the services and Bryan's creativity.

Bryan at Karin's Florist was wonderful through the whole planning process. After I described my vision for the flowers, he made helpful suggestions and recommendations. He worked with our small-ish budget to get us the flowers that we wanted. He was VERY responsive and returned every phone call and email within a day. Everything was delivered on time or early on the day of and the flowers were beautiful (and still are days later!) My only complaint was that we paid extra for a special flower cuff for the mothers and they didn't turn out like I had described, but in all fairness I didn't have a picture example of what I wanted and it was a bit unconventional. No one but me knew the difference and they were lovely anyway.

Karin's Florist is GREAT! Bryan Swann, the director of special events is phenomenal and really takes your vision and taste into consideration when designing arrangements for you. We used them for our wedding and everything was beyond perfect...They are pricey, but not the most expensive, and completely worth it. Very professional and accommodating, will really work with your budget and is very quick at getting back to you! Could not recommend this company more for everything from weddings to single flower purchases!

Loved the dramatic centerpieces provided by Karin's. We worked with Bryan and he was most gracious in working with our budget and our vases. He did a mock up of the centerpiece he envisioned which was a great tool for an out-of-town bride. The bride's bouquet, the corsages, and the bouts were all perfect. After seeing the centerpiece, the bridesmaids made their own bouquets in a session with the bride and they complemented the centerpieces perfectly. Delivery and set up was right on time and very professional. Bryan's always responded to our questions very promptly and helped this MOB keep her cool. Thank you, Karin's!!

I worked with Bryan Swann and he was fantastic! We had a thorough meeting to discuss my theme and vision for the flowers at the wedding. What he came up with was truly breath-taking. The flowers were so affordable that I ended up adding a trellis with beautiful flowers to my order. Bryan also worked with me last minute to add olive leaves to adorn the base of my wedding cake tiers. I can not recommend Karin's Florist more. Any bride in the Washington, DC area should go with them! Completely worth every penny!!

Bryan was an amazing help to work with for my wedding flowers. I brought my idea and vision to him (without a lot of knowledge of flowers) and he helped me to come up with a plan for my and the bridesmaid's bouquets as well as incorporating flowers into our unique centerpieces. I trusted him from the onset and didn't see any flowers until the second before I walked down the aisle and I was SO impressed! I couldn't have imagined them turning out any better, and Bryan put me at ease. If you're looking for someone to listen to what you want and transform it into reality within any budget, Karin's florist will not disappoint!

What perfection, professionalism and pleasantries in working with Bryan Swann at Karins' Florist. He saw the vision our daughter had for her color palette and went with it to organize the most beautiful selections of flowers for the fall season! Her bouquet was exquisite, the bridesmaids flowers were gorgeous and the centerpieces for the tables at the reception were beyond what we expected! Mr. Swann was so easy to work with and so very very flexible with our order! It was all so easy in dealing with this florist!

Very professional, on time, stress free, and most importantly - high quality flowers and workmanship.

My husband and I were married on 9.14.2013. We were originally going to use silk flowers for our wedding for bouquets but when we saw what we got, we had to go with real flowers. My husband had worked with Karin’s florist in the past. We showed the designer two photos which were what I wanted for my bridal bouquet and the bridesmaid’s bouquets. We ended up having the flowers delivered all the way to Fredericksburg, VA. The flowers were absolutely stunning. They were exactly what we wanted and were absolutely beautiful. The price was reasonable and we were so pleased.

Karin's Florist did an excellent job for our arrangements, and they worked very hard to keep it within my budget. They had us reuse the flowers from the ceremony for the reception to save on costs, and the arrangements were all beautiful. They were on time, provided quality flowers, worked with my budget, and had great customer service. A very pleasing experience, and nothing to complain about, so I would highly recommend to anyone.

First off, Bryan is amazing. I had no idea what I wanted for flowers and had only pinned a few things that I like. He took those pictures and worked them into a masterpiece. But his job wasn't easy as I kept changing my mind on what I wanted for the ceremony. I immediately felt comfortable with him at our initial meeting and could clearly tell he was going to make my wedding flowers beautiful. He didn't disappoint. Thanks Bryan and thanks Karin's. Definitely worth the money...and they were not the most expensive that I talked to.

Karin's Florist did a wonderful job providing the flowers for my church wedding ceremony and ballroom wedding reception, and they made my mom and I feel very comfortable every step of the way! Bryan, the director of special events, is a creative genius and was a joy to work with. I so looked forward to meetings with him, and despite being a very hands-on and detail oriented bride, he always patiently listened to my ideas and built on them with excellent suggestions. I fully trusted him to take creative control when he had a new and fresh idea that I would never have thought up on my own. He immediately understood my vision for certain color choices and for the high level of elegance with a modern touch that I wanted to achieve, and he helped me to more fully realize it through the styles of the bouquets, centerpieces, and other decorative touches. On the wedding day, the flowers were delivered on time to the church and to the reception venue. The set-up of the cocktail hour space and the ballroom space was just beautiful. I highly recommend working with Bryan and Karin's Florist!

Absolutely beautiful! Bryan, the events manager, worked with me to create gorgeous flower arrangements for the ceremony and the reception. He was prompt in providing the contract and was flexible when I needed to add more arrangements a few weeks before the wedding. He also checked in before placing the order to make sure there were no additional changes.

On the wedding day, the flowers were delivered on time to both the church and the reception venue. As I was leaving for the church, I met the floral delivery person in the foyer of the hotel/reception venue. She was friendly and ensured me that everything was delivered and set up.

The flower arrangements themselves were truly works of art. My bouquet was lush and more than I ever dreamed of. The rest of the wedding flowers were amazing, and the centerpieces for the reception were fantastic. I opted to keep the reception decor fairly simple and just have flower centerpieces. Boy, I was happy I did that! The flowers were gorgeous and perfect!

Bryan Swann at Karin's florist is THE BEST! He completely captured my "vision". Our chuppah was the hit of the ceremony. People who aren't even jewish are talking about how they now want a chuppah in their wedding ceremony. I also have to give Bryan credit for getting creative on how to make the most impact on a tight budget. Even though I was taking him pictures of wedding flowers that were 10x what I was willing to spend, he found a way to make a budget-friendly version of what I liked. Also, he's just generally a pleasant and easy going person to work with. He had never done a wedding at our venue, but he was a good sport about it and everything came out great. Almost everyone mentioned how beautiful our flowers were.

Also, he's just generally a pleasant and easy going person to work with. He had never done a wedding at our venue, but he was a good sport about it and everything came out great. Almost everyone mentioned how beautiful our flowers were. Read less

Bryan was a creative genious when it came to the flowers for our wedding. I met with him during the planning process and discussed the colors, dress, and venue. What he came up with was perfect. He was also very flexible as I added other things on later in the process. The day of, my mom and I picked up the women's flowers (which he offered to deliver to the hotel) because I wanted them for pictures before hand. He delivered the men's flowers to the venue and set up all the arrangements. I also feel that this florist is competitively priced. I would highly recommend for a stress free wedding floral experience.

We chose Karin's Florist for our wedding and the flowers were all great! We worked with Bryan who really got a grasp of what we wanted before we really even knew what we wanted. Bryan was also awesome by giving us so much of his time for the planning process, he really made our wedding feel important. The arrangements went way above my expectations in how unique they were. There was a lot of little details that really made the flowers stand out. I highly recommend using Karin's Florist for any event. The flowers were fresh and the arrangements were beautiful!

The flowers for my wedding were gorgeous. I don't know much about flowers so I went there with only vague ideas about what I wanted and needed, and Bryan was able to channel that into a coherent proposal. I changed the order several times before the wedding and he was always receptive. At the wedding, I heard so many compliments about the ceremony flowers, the centerpieces, and my bridal bouquet. I am so happy I went with Karin's!

I met with Bryan to discuss our initial ideas. Orchids, tropical, pinks, purples, and greens. He was wonderful to work with. When we ended up spending more on other items, we had to cut our flower budget. Bryan worked with us to decide on the cuts. We ended up keeping all the personal flowers (bouquets, bouts, etc.) in the order. They arrived that morning, right on time, for our pictures. They were absolutely beautiful!! Gorgeous!! I highly recommend this florist. It's so worth it.

On a side note: I even ended up deciding to have the flowers preserved since they were so gorgeous! :) I'll review that vendor as well once I see the finished product!

Karin's Florist was fantastic. When I met with Bryan at Karin's and explained that I was working with a tight budget, he came up with a plan that fit my needs. At our meeting, I showed him a couple of photos and described types of flowers I liked. The centerpieces and bouquets that arrived on my wedding day exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled with what they created. I was particularly happy with my bouquet. I had said that I wanted my bouquet to include knotted ribbons like my grandmother carried at her wedding and he found a wonderful way to make it work - a nod to my grandmother with a lovely, modern twist.

Our consultation with Brian was outstanding--he asked many questions about the details of what we wanted, and he provided excellent advice on the specific flowers/arrangements that he thought would best meet our needs/desires. In every manner, he exceeded our expectations--we and our guests were duly impressed with the quality and the radiance of the floral arrangements. If one is looking for outstanding floral arrangements, look no further than Karin's Florists.

Bryan Swann at Karin's Florist provided the most amazing decor for my daughter's wedding. Without ever seeing the dress or the bridesmaid dresses, he captured her vision and turned a beautiful venue into a magical fairytale event! The Chuppa was so spectacular that it was hard to pay attention to the ceremony and the centerpieces and bouquets took the guests breath away. He carefully chose all the flowers to compliment her colors and her petite size, and it was as if he was reading her mind. We only met with Bryan once, as we all live several hours away, and he delivered more than we could have ever dreamed of in terms of quality and vision. I would not go to any other floral designer in the Virgina / DC area. Karin's will have all of my business from here on out!

It took me awhile to find a florist due to budget issues and not being able to find someone that would provide sound advice on wedding flowers to this novice. I went into Karin's and immediately received suggestions on flower types, colors and even some help on what to do with my diy centerpieces. When the flowers came in I was absolutely amazed at how beautiful the colors and styles pulled everything together. I would recommend Karin's to anyone who is in need of quality floral design!

My husband and I had the most incredible arrangements at our wedding. Their beauty captivated our guests - and months later, our guests are still talking about our wedding flowers. We procrastinated with our flowers and only stopped in to the florist three weeks before the wedding, which was coincidentally Valentines Day - a very busy time of the year for a florist! Yet, they made us feel like we were the most important people there and took time to walk us thru all of our options. We were so well taken care of with this florist - with the quality and beauty of the floral arrangements that were very creatively presented, and an awesome staff to work with. We will recommend them for years to come as the best florist in the Washington DC area.

I could not have had a better experience with Linda at Karin's Florist. For my initial consultation we met one on one and talked about the vibe of the wedding. I was very specific about certain wants (YES sunflowers, NO roses) and Linda was able to come up with an absolutely beautiful concept for how our flowers would look. She was incredibly flexible and responsive to our needs (e.g. thought of new boutenniere flowers so they wouldn't wilt during cocktail hour; took into account the arrangement of a Persian table we had at the ceremony; etc.) She was very responsive over email, phone, and in person, and was open to making changes if I changed my mind slightly. She also thought of some great ideas that hadn't crossed my mind.

The biggest thing I appreciated about this was that Linda wasn't pushy with flower choices. When I told her my budget she very consciously swapped out certain flowers that had the same effect for a much lower cost. Most vendors try to get you to buy their most expensive offering. She even threw in free wired flowers for my hair!

All in all, I absolutely recommend Karin's Florist to other brides. You get a great bang for your buck and they treat you like a unique person and not just another order in their filing system.

Karin's Florist of Vienna did the flowers for my daugher's wedding and they were spectacular. We had a tight budget and Bryan Swann, the design director, did an amazing job for the money. The ceremony and reception were in the same place and he provided pedestals and tall flower arrangements to delineate the ceremony area, then moved them to the buffet table for the reception. The bridesmaids bouquets were lovely as were the table flowers. They were very colorful and original and everyone loved them. I appreciated the professionalism, everything was in place when the wedding party arrived.

The quality of the flowers, vases, etc were superior, fragrant and fresh.

After this experience, I would never think to use another florist for an need or occasion and would recommend Karin's Florist and Bryan Swann without any reservations.

I loved Karins Florist. I worked with Linda Kasulis and she was wonderful. I had a hard time picking my flowers and stuff and no matter what she worked with me to come up with what I wanted. They are very professional and no matter what you can trust that your flowers are going to turn out beautiful. I loved my flowers and I would reccommend them to anyone.

We worked with Bryan and the team at Karin's Florist on the recommendation of my (now) mother-in-law, and we're so glad that we did. Bryan helped us create beautiful tablescapes with books and candles, provided us with classy boutonnieres and an incredible bouquet, and made a gorgeous ivy backdrop for the ceremony. We could tell that Bryan was genuinely excited to work with us, and we cannot express how grateful we are to have found someone as enthusiastic and talented as we did. He is truly an artist, and our wedding wouldn't have looked as good as it did without him. He was also very honest with us, and helped us to work within our budget to create the look and experience that we were looking for.

Karin's Florist was a big part of making our vision of the big day a reality, and we really appreciate all of their help.

Bryan and his team far exceeded my expectations for my wedding!!! I was married on a boat and they surprised me with a nautical theme better than I could ever have planned or envisioned! My ceremony arch was soft and flowy with cascades of flowers secured with nautical knots, and the reception was bold with arrangements to match the nautical flags - and even spelled a beautiful message for the day!!! Everything was amazing and everywhere I looked there was another unexpected and wonderful detail! My wedding was a truly magical day and Karin's Florist created the perfect backdrop for my celebration!

I loved working with Karin's. Bryan Swann in particular did an excellent job. They worked within my budget and came up with some absolutely beautiful designs. I appreciated the time that Bryan took to explain things to me, that really made a difference. Our mother of the bride and mother of the groom corsages ended up being wrong, but that really was the only negative thing and in the end didn't really matter that much on the wedding day anyways! I would definitely recommend working with Karin's Florist.

My mother-in-law handled all the flowers for the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception, so all contact with the florist was through her. From her reports, everything went very smoothly with the arrangements. The only slight glitch was that a boutonniere for my grandfather went missing, although it could have been placed on the wrong person by the church volunteers (we're not sure what happened). Aside from that, the flowers were all gorgeous, including the bouquets and all the various arrangements. We ended up donating some of the table arrangements to a nursing home and taking the rest home to enjoy for the next week.

The flowers at the wedding looked fantastic! I was so happy with the way everything looked and would definitely recommend Karin's Florist (and Bryan).

Bryan did a great job with our flowers. Our centerpieces were included with our hotel wedding package so we had to stay within a few choices. He did a great job of making something simple look interesting and beautiful. We also got our bouquets and ceremony flowers from him and they were beautiful. He was flexible with our budget and we changed our minds several times. He even let us bring our own pedestals to save money. We were very happy with the flowers.

The staff at Karin's Florist were outstanding! They have been doing this for such a long time that it is easy to trust that they are going to make things perfect.

I didn't have a specific vision for exactly what I wanted, but they knew the venue, the time of year, and talked to me about style and color. At the end of the day I knew that they were going to produce something perfect.

On my wedding day things were even better than I had even imagined. The bouquets, boutouniers and arrangements were perfect! They worked with our pastry chef to put the perfect flowers on the cake, and they even wired some orchids for my hair that everyone specifically complimented in person and in pictures.

We would recommend Karin's without hesitation!

I went to Karin's on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Bryan worked with me on my meager flower budget to create beautiful bouquets and flowers for my bridal party. My mother-in-law ended up ordering the rehearsal dinner centerpieces from Karin's as well and they were gorgeous. We had an asian theme to the whole weekend and the touches he added to the centerpieces and boutennaires for the men were subtle and beautiful. They delivered the flowers promptly to both the church and the reception (I ordered flowers for my cake and they decorated the cake beautifully with them) and were always pleasant to work with when I went to the store.

My mom and I met with Bryan Swan at Karin's florist and really liked him. He seemed very passionate about his work and came up with some great ideas for our french themed wedding. He never rushed us and took his time explaning things and was never pushy (we had a bad experience with one florist who was too pushy before we met with him).

My only suggestion to brides is to say exactly what kind of flowers you want. I showed him pictures of what I wanted for the bouquets, but didn't say what I didn't want. I didn't realize he was going to put ivy in my bridal bouquet and I'm not a huge fan of ivy. My bridesmaids dresses were lavendar and their bouquets had a lot of blue in them which didn't match very well, BUT the flowers looked really pretty and turned out great in the pictures. The reception flowers were really pretty as well.

He worked with us on our budget and really came up with some great alternatives since we didn't want to spend a huge amount on flowers. He made everything work that we wanted and stayed within our budget. He was also a pleasure to work with!!

Working with this vendor was wonderful, they were so helpful, offered great suggestions and found beautiful options in my price range. Unfortunately on the day of the wedding we were short one bridesmaid bouquet because of a miscommunication. The bouquets also began to wilt and fall apart before the pictures were even done after the ceremony. I was slightly disappointed in the actual bouquets, but the customer service and everything else was great.

Working with Bryan was great. I went in with some basic ideas and he was very helpful. He was also more than glad to work within our budget. The bouquets came out fantastic. I'd have given a 5 for quality of service, but my disappointment was the bouttenieres. All of them, including my dad, and the groom's fell apart before the reception even started. I'm pretty laid back, but that was frustrating to see happen.

The only reason they are not getting all 5's from me is because we got engaged in August and started heavily planning around September/October with follow-ups in November/December. These are VERY busy times for florists. With that said, the flowers were AMAZING! Everyone commented on them and I'm so glad I stuck with Karin's. Brian was our consultant and he nailed everything I wanted. The reception looked like something out of a fairy tale. I would highly recommend them... just be patient and you will be rewarded!

They did my flowers for the ceremony and the centerpieces at the reception. The ceremony flowers were great. They were fresh and looked nice and were just what I asked for. The centerpieces however were not what I ordered. Apparently the florists looked at the wrong wedding and gave me the centerpieces for a wedding happening at the same hotel, but a few weeks after mine. So my centerpieces could not have been more wrong. Luckily it looked ok and the colors were not totally off. They said it was the 1st time it had ever happened and they are refunding me half of the money I paid. This had happened because the lady we worked with was not there when they were making my flowers. Other than this they were great, but just be sure to quadruple check that they're giving you the right flowers!

I typically order from Karin's for my regular floral needs and their products are fantastic. The events staff was pleasant and professional to work with. Everything was also delivered on time and my vision for the event was more than met for the price point we negotiated. However, I was quite disappointed by the quality of the flowers received on my wedding in comparison with the normal business I conduct with them. The pieces looked nice overall, but many bouquets and arrangements were falling apart at the slightest touch. Fortunately, most of the pieces held up through the evening. I did speak with Karin's after the fact and they did provide me with some restitution for the quality of the flowers. Their rates are terrific but they may need to rethink some of their providers and ordering timelines in the future to make sure their events business keeps up with their storefront options.

I did speak with Karin's after the fact and they did provide me with some restitution for the quality of the flowers. Their rates are terrific but they may need to rethink some of their providers and ordering timelines in the future to make sure their events business keeps up with their storefront options. Read less

We were recommended to go with karin's florist and were pleasantly surprised when they wanted to work on the prices with us and our budget. There were a few glitches along the way in terms of actual flower selections and what look we really wanted being portrayed but in the end all the flowers were beautiful and our chuppa was gorgeous.

Working with Brian from Karin's Florist was a great experience. He was very helpful in making seasonal and floral color choices based on the colors of our bridal party.

The floral certerpeices were included with our recepetion package and Karin's was the vendor. We chose to have all of our floral needs meet by Karin's. I was happy with the initial service and floral choices.

I do feel my bridal bouquet was the same size and used the same flowers as the bride's maids bouquet; it was hard to distinguish mine from theirs other than the ribbon that tied it together. I didn't see a $70 difference.

It was also unfortunate that the my bouquet, 4 bride's maid bouquets, flower girl and mothers/grandmother corsages and father of the bride flowers were delivered an hour and a half late. The photograpgher needed to leave to get to the church, so I don't have picutures of gettting ready or placing the corsages or boutonniere on my father. We had one minute to spare before we needed to leave for the church and luckily the flowers arrived as we were walking out the door. Karin's is located about 2 miles from the delivery location so I didn't think this would be something to worry about.

I am disappointed that we were the ones who were calling the florist and trying to track down the flowers and not the other way around with them calling us. Overall I am pleased and happy that a crisis was averted!

We did not have a good experience with Karin's for my wedding. There was a miscommunication about an order for our rehearsal dinner and the flowers did not arrive.

The flowers for the reception did not at all match the very specific order. One particular flower I said I did not want in any arrangement, was in every one. The florist suggested this flower and I said no--specifically. The flowers were the wrong color--dark pink, and no white--and the green flower I disliked was featured prominently. It's in every photograph. We met with them twice prior to the wedding and I was very specific and had pictures printed out and emailed. My bouquet was pretty, but also included bright colors that I didn't want. The bridesmaid bouquets didn't match and again were very bright. The event order was for pastel colors.

It was very disappointing. While the flowers were fresh, nicely arranged, and quite pretty, they really were not what I had wanted or requested. Bryan did follow up with me about the experience and tried to make it right, which I appreciated.

It pains me to have to write this review! But I can’t believe the flowers were the wrong color! My wedding colors were hot pink and orange—I got PURPLE and orange. (And Linda tried to convince me that the purple flowers I got were in fact hot pink.)

I really thought that Linda and I were on the same page. I gave her paint chips and a picture of the flowers I wanted (with a few tweaks—no hydrangeas and add gerbera daisies). I didn’t sleep well the first 3 nights after my wedding because I kept waking up angry that my flowers were ruined. It breaks my heart every time I look at my pictures. I’m grateful that the photographer was able to Photoshop some of my pictures, but now the flowers look dull.

They did refund 10% and gave me a $200 gift card to try to make up for the problem. But it can’t make up for the fact that everything else on my wedding day was perfect, but my flowers were heartbreakingly wrong.

If it were not for the wrong color problem, this would have been a glowing review. Linda was nice to work with and suggested flowers that fit my budget. (Although keep in mind how much delivery costs.) I liked how it was a big shop so if one person was sick, another person could step in.

But in the end, I cannot recommend Karin’s Florist. In fact, I would go as far as to say—DON’T USE Karin’s Florists.
