Ms. Tonya did a wonderful job providing the flowers for my August Top of the Town wedding. She was very flexible and allowed me to keep adding things to her "to-do" list without charging me extra (for example, I asked her to set up our anniversary box and tape childhood pictures to the bathroom doors etc.). Her arrangements were lovely and I could not be happier. She had good prices and worked with me to stay under my budget.

Tonya did an AMAZING job with the flowers for my wedding. She made a bouquet for my last-minute elopement back in March right after we had booked her for our bigger ceremony and the flowers for our wedding last weekend were perfection. Everything was on time and beautiful! I'm crazy picky when it comes to flowers but everything was gorgeous and it was so awesome to not have to worry about trying to set everything up ourselves.

Sometimes the simplest things are the most beautiful. Certainly was the case with this wedding! Deep shades of Red were so fitting for the ceremony and reception that took place on the grounds of the National Marine Corps Museum. The sweetest chapel and breathtaking museum were a perfect fit...clean and classic. Great fun designing these flowers!

Tonya did an amazing job with the flowers for my wedding. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful bouquet. The flowers more than exceeded my expectations. From the first time I contacted Tonya, she was so extremely helpful and responsive. She worked with me, offering up different ideas and flower options, to stay within our budget. I explained to Tonya the theme we were going with for the wedding, and she really took her time to explain to me different flower options and showed me pictures, so I knew exactly what she was going to create. She was very flexible and accommodated my last minute drop off location. She also made things for very easy for us by providing us a pre-paid, self-addressed box to send back the rented vases to her. Tonya nailed it! We loved our flowers! We would use her again and recommend her to anyone who wants a great experience when working with a florist!

Tonya was great! She was such a pleasure to work with and when I wanted to see samples before the wedding she went above and beyond, bringing a sample of my bouquet and both of my selected centerpieces. She really listened to me and we worked together to ensure that everything was exactly the way I wanted it. I couldn't have been more pleased with all of the flowers on my wedding day! Everything was absolutely stunning and exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend Tonya!

We worked with Tonya from Occasional Flowers for our November 2nd wedding and she was fantastic. Our venue was a hotel and I was a little concerned about the ceremony looking "pretty." When I saw the room it was beautiful. Tonya also did a fantastic job with the reception, wedding bouquets, and boutonniere's. Tonya was extremely flexible and allowed me to change things about our order up until the week of the wedding. Her prices are also very reasonable compared to other vendors we looked at with a similar product. I would highly recommend her and occasional flowers to any other bride!

I met with Tonya several months before my October 2013 wedding to discuss ideas. Honestly, I did not have a clear vision because I'm not a big fan of flowers and let Tonya know that fact. Despite my initial lack of direction and aversion to flowers, Tonya helped me come up with a beautiful design for the wedding. Because we used the same space (and decor) for the ceremony and reception, Tonya stayed on site through the ceremony to transform the room. And because I rented the vases, she also returned after the wedding to retrieve them. All of her work was absolutely beautiful, including the arbor, centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres and her prices were very reasonable.

I loved working on this wedding! It took a lot of muscle and more than one set of hands to place all those glass, cylinder vases filled with water and submerged flowers but it was worth it. The end result was stunning! And speaking of stunning, I recently saw some pictures and video...the bride put the flowers to shame!

I can't say enough about Tonya. She met with me on short notice, came up with a beautiful plan that was within my budget and with little help from me because I really didn't know what I wanted, and created the most beautiful arrangements for my wedding. I loved working with her and would refer her, without hesitation, to any bride.

Tonya Evans was amazing. She took our vision, really understood what we wanted and made it better than we ever imagined. All our guests were so impressed. We even gave her some homemade paper flowers and asked that she mix them in with real ones and they look so classy!

We met in person and she was also extremely responsive via email. She also helped us work within our budget. Thank you, Tonya!!

Tonya was fantastic. Period. I wanted an ecclectic and unique floral scheme for our wedding and was having difficulty finding pictures of exactly what I wanted, and also of a florist willing to do what I wanted. Others kept trying to get me to fit into what worked for them, the flowers they liked or were comfortable with, and didn't seem to care too much what my vision was since it was less traditional. Tonya heard my all-over-the-place ideas and honed them into a cohesive theme that was absolutely beautiful AND on budget. No one else even gave me a proposal that was on our budget, and they're proposals didn't provide what we wanted. So Tonya is my hero.

Our wedding was in an old mansion in DC with a large garden. We didn't do outside flowers (other than a few single stems in low vases on the cocktail hour tables) but inside each table had its own unique centerpiece. She hung clusters of sunflowers on the front doors to welcome people, and arranged clusters of small vases with flowers around the property, giving it a grand but homey feeling. The bouquets were lush, fun, and simply beautiful. She even helped a groomsman get his boutinneirre on.

Tonya pretty much read my mind. She absolutely delivered the vision that I couldn't even properly articulate and did so on budget. She is an artist and professional and I (we) aboslutely recommend her.

Tonya was an absolute pleasure to work with. She responded very quickly to my many emails, worked with me to fit something in my budget, was spot-on with the vision I had in mind for my wedding. Her prices were reasonable and the quality of the thoughtful and skillfully made bouquets and arch arrangement were superb! She was very flexible and kind in accommodating my various requests that changed many times. She even threw in some lovely lace that went around my bouquet for free. In addition to the bouquets, bouts and arch decorations she provided for me, she made my endeavor to do my own centerpieces (which she doesn't recommend and neither do I) so much easier by cutting, treating and refrigerating my flowers for fraction of what any other florist would have charged (if they would have even agreed in the first place). Then, since I lived pretty close to her business, she even delivered them to my house for free! It is so hard to find vendors that will really go out of their way to make your vision a reality and she did just that with a smile for the entire 7 months that I worked with her. I would book her again in a heartbeat!

Tonya at Occasional Flowers did a stellar job with our wedding. As we were planning, she provided excellent suggestions (we weren’t always quite sure what we wanted), and she seemed to intuit what we would like, despite our clumsy descriptions. The bouquets were simply gorgeous, as many of our guests commented. Her prices were quite reasonable--a bargain compared to what other florists were quoting!--and she was always transparent about what we were paying for. She was quick to respond on email, which was great. She also very kindly agreed to help us arrange a number of non-floral parts of our centerpieces that we had stored at the venue the day before (table number luminaries, little apothecary jars of herbs, etc.), and she allowed us to provide our own “vases” (jars we had decorated ourselves) for the flowers. She provided complimentary flowers for our cake and assembled them on the cake at the venue. I would highly recommend Occasional Flowers.

I was referred to Tonya from a friend and after meeting her in person I knew it was the right choice! My wedding flowers were absolutely perfect. She arrived on time and was very professional. The boquets were beautiful, and the corsages exactly what I envisioned. The vases at the alter and the center pieces were even better than I imagined. We did floating candles in vases with orchids in the water - perfect. Best part is she picked up all the vases at the end of the night and her prices were great.

I was originally planning on having my flowers done by affordably arrangements (the same florist my sister used for her wedding), but was told that they did not have the staff available during the Christmas season. At first I was disappointed, but now am thrilled at how things panned out. I discovered Tonya and found that she had the BEST prices around. She makes you feel at ease and is extremely knowledgeable about the field. I came into our consultation not quite sure with what I wanted and she was able to guide me in the right direction. All of our arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, etc. were above and beyond what I had imagined. There were so many compliments! Highly recommended!

Tonya took care of all of the flower set-up and when I walked into the room I could not believe how beautiful everything was. She was great! You will not be disappointed!

Occasional Flowers and Tonya Evans were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!

Tonya was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, flexible and accomodating throughout the entire planning process. She provided me with pictures of her past work and also let me flood her emails with pictures of centerpieces that I had gathered independently so she could get an idea of what I was looking for. She also told me about the various options and totally worked with me to create something that was WITHIN my budget.

On the day of my wedding, Tonya completely knocked my vision out of the park! It was so beautiful and unbelievable. Better than anything I could had ever envisioned. My peonies and hydrangeas were plush, colorful and vibrant - and my centerpieces and ceremony flowers were simulanteously elegant and bold. The colors were absolutely perfect and brightened up my venue (the Newseum) perfectly!! When I picture my wedding day, I picture my flowers because they were such an outstanding part of the day. I was just sad that I was hopping on a plane to Texas and I couldn't take all my ceremony and reception flowers with me!!!

Tonya sincerely cares about making your wedding day special. Her artistic ability and sense of design is amazing and she really creates pieces that are unique and personal and that speak to you individually. Most of all, she listens to YOUR vision and does everything she can to make that vision come to life. She's extremely easy to work with, responsive, meticulous, extremely generous, reasonable and more than anything a fantastic floral designer.

I would use them again in a heartbeat!!!

Tonya at Occasional Flowers did an incredible job with her our wedding flowers. I had met 3 florists prior to meeting her, and she had SO many more ideas than the others, and her pricing was WAY better than the others. She was very flexible up to two weeks before the wedding and kept giving me so many ideas when I was unsure about stuff... even ideas to cut costs.
She even came the night of the wedding to wrap up our flowers for us to take home at no extra charge (we rented vases from her).

I HIGHLY recommend Tonya at Occasional Flowers. Don't waste your time going to other florists- she is the best.

It was truly a pleasure working with Tonya of Occasional Flowers. She really listened to the vision and ideas I had for our wedding and was able to provide affordable service without compromising beauty and quality. She provided a spectacular arch with flowers for our outdoor ceremony as well as the wedding party flowers and table centerpieces. She was able to incorporate the butterflies I had purchased into the arragements -- they were so amazing! I would definitely work with Tonya again for a wedding or special occasion.

She really listened to the vision and ideas I had for our wedding and was able to provide affordable service without compromising beauty and quality. She provided a spectacular arch with flowers for our outdoor ceremony as well as the wedding party flowers and table centerpieces. She was able to incorporate the butterflies I had purchased into the arragements -- they were so amazing! I would definitely work with Tonya again for a wedding or special occasion. Read less

Tonya did a beautiful job for three weddings in my family - my two sisters, and mine. We each had our own looks and Tonya did them all great. I was not very picky and just told her to go with it because I knew she had it under control. What she came up with was perfect and I couldn't have asked for more. She was flexible and helpful in working with my schedule. She loves working with flowers and it shows.

Tonya is a dream! Her work is beautiful and of the highest quality. Many of my guests raved about the flowers, and were delighted to take home centerpieces at the end of the night. Everything from the centerpieces to my bouquet to the corsages was exactly as I had specified and as I had wished for. Occasional flowers is affordable, and Tonya works with you to make the most of your budget--she really respects the budget! Everything was delivered on time, fresh and beautiful, with no hassles. Tonya is amazing and I am so grateful to her for making my wedding so special.

Occasional Flowers provided so much at an unbelievable cost we're still counting ourselves lucky we heard about them. We met with Tonya with very little in mind as to what we wanted. She asked all the right questions and presented so many options, we easily narrowed down what would work for us within 30 minutes of meeting her. We explained our budget was tight and she never flinched - just offered beautiful options that would fit our budget. When our quote arrived, we were shocked. In fact, we assumed we would have to just hope for the best at that price. We got the best. We were overwhelmed with how everything turned out. Many of our guests made comments on how stunning our centerpieces looked. Tonya even added additional greenery to the pieces after asking if she could take some license
with the original plan if she felt it necessary - and didn't charge us. This made the pieces look even more exceptional. She was flexible with our budget, our ideas, and our suggestions; professional throughout; responsive and eager to please; and over-delivered on our meager budget. We're eager to happily recommend Occasional Flowers!

She was punctual and I never had to worry about the quality of my flowers through the whole process. Everything was perfect and I couldnt be happier with my choice!

As a wedding planner, Tonya at Occasional Flowers was one of the first calls I made after getting engaged myself. She has a fantastic eye for flowers and excels at creating unique arrangements that guests will remember. Her rates are more affordable than most florists around, often because you can rent her vases and columns instead of purchasing them like many florists. She worked within our small budget and was happy to use our vintage vases and ribbon that we had found. She is happy to work within your budget to make beautiful arrangements....instead of trying to upsell you or give you sub-par arrangements. Tonya is fantastic to work with and doesn't have the overhead costs of many larger flower shops. I highly recommend her!

When it was just a little over budget she was able to come up with another proposal that met my budget and vision. The flowers on the day of the wedding were gorgeous! All were very much alive and in full bloom. She was on time with delivery and set up. I was very happy with this vendor.

She took the photos I had collected and created bouquets and bouts that were exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know what that was. She delivered the flowers to the hotel where we were getting ready so that she could add my father's wedding band to my bouquet. The bouquets were in vases and the bouts were on ice so that they stayed nice and fresh.

Absolutely wonderful!!!! Tonya is gifted with her designs and arrangements. It was breathtaking walking in to see our reception room transformed. She worked with us and came up with 3 unique designs. After meeting with her we decided to upgrade (our idea not hers) and it was worth it. We also ended up with 50 additional guests so our end cost was of course a little more. All of the flowers were fresh and 5 days later still look pristine. Delivery to our site was on time and set up was very efficient. Guest comments were WOW!!! with many of them remarking they had never seen Airlie (our site) look so good.
She is great and I will definitely use her again for other occasions.

What impressed me most about Tonya is that she REALLY listens. After we met and she forwarded her proposal for our wedding flowers, I was amazed. She captured everything thing I imagined on paper, precisely! Proposals that I received from other florists were no where near as close to my vision (and I gave them the exact same description of what I wanted).

When I needed to cut my floral budget a little, Tonya worked with me, making suggestions that worked perfectly but did not compromise our wedding style. In the end our flowers were absolutely beautiful and we got several compliments from wedding guests. Tonya is truly an artist who is professional, flexible and provides great service. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have about Occassional Flowers. I am more than happy to be a reference.

With Tonya, I was able to spend no more than I wanted to spend for beautiful flowers. I wanted orchids and calla lilies, which are not cheap, and she was able to come up with some beautiful arrangements within my budget. And five days before the wedding, I contacted her to see if she could do 3 arrangements for my rehearsal dinner, and not only was she able to do them and deliver them, but they were exactly what I wanted.

Tonya Evans came highly recommend by a close friend who also used Occasional Flowers as her wedding florist. Tonya was very receptive to my requests and ideas and developed a floral package that allowed me to stay within my budget. Although I wish I had selected groomsmen bouonnieres that were a little more substantial, I was more than pleased with the floral arrangements on my wedding cake - they were stunning! We also received several compliments on our reception centerpieces where Tonya used fresh limes to line vases of pink gerber daisies. I would recommend Occasional Flowers to anyone who is seeking the personal attention and creative of an independent florist.

If you live in Northern Virginia and are looking for beautiful flowers that are not terribly expensive, please contact Tanya at Occasional Flowers. What I asked for was very simple and minimal, but she provided me with exactly what I wanted for a reasonable price. She also delivered everything to the hotel we were getting ready at prior to the ceremony. She was extremely professional and did everything that I asked. I couldn't have been more pleased with the way the flowers turned out that day.

Tonya at Occasional Flowers did a wonderful job at our wedding! She provided, flowers, decorated an arbor, and hung lanterns for us. The flowers were stunning. Also the arbor was beautifully decorated and amazing! From start to finish Tonya was very patient with us and worked within our budget to get everything we wanted. We would highly recommend her for your event!

Please note, this is my recommendation to other couples!! If you give anything to your vendor to set up for your wedding, make sure you give explicit instructions for those items including if you expect them back after your event. By default they will trash them if you do not specify.

Tonya was wonderful to work with and we loved our centerpieces and bouquets. Tonya was respectful of our shoestring floral budget and tastes and really came through with set up and clean up.

Tonya was incredible and very helpful to me, a bride with both vague and specific ideas. She was able to work with a smaller budget and still create very beautiful arrangements. Her patience, professionalism, and skill really shines through over other vendors.

Tonya at Occasional Flowers did a gorgeous job! Loved the bouquets, and the sweetheart table flower arrangement was amazing. Very good prices and was easy to communicate with throughout the planning process.

I always received timely responses to questions via email, and the contract was always updated quickly.

She had some great ideas and allowed me to make changes even a month or so before for the date.

I would note that we couldn't find the toss bouquet on the wedding day, but we just used a bridesmaid bouquet instead. Overall great experience and I would recommend her.

Occasional Flowers responded with the following comments:

It is never good to hear that something got missed, even if it is something small like the toss bouquet. I always place the toss bouquet on the cake table at the reception, whenever possible. If I do not have florals for the reception, I send it along with the personal flowers to the ceremony location. Though I provide a complimentary toss bouquet to every bride, many are choosing not to perform this tradition anymore! Because of this I began providing small, complimentary cake florals instead. Now, some are not even having a cake!
Since I am not sure which wedding this was, I can't say for sure what happened here but I have to say;
I hope that brides don't feel like I am unreachable after the flowers have been delivered. If there is ever a problem, question, anything...give me a call, send me a text, let me know! I am happy to do my best to fix any issues that may arise!

Tonya was absolutely lovely! She met with myself, my wedding coordinator, my mother, and my future mother-in-law and was very patient as many opinos were expressed. I am not that familiar with flowers and she had plenty of resources and pictures which helped me to choose. She also was helpful in making suggestions when I felt lost as to what to pick. Tonya was also helpful in picking flowers and combinations of flowers which provided the right value. On the day of the wedding, she delivered promptly and the products were gorgeous. She was also flexible as we altered the amount of corsages a few weeks prior. I highly recommend Tonya!

Tonya was great for my flowers and inexpensive. Although I didn't have a lot since I didn't use them in centerpieces the bouquets and other flowers were great quality. A few of the roses were a little wilted but other than that they were supurb! I also loved that the toss bouquet was complimentary as I wanted to save my actual bouquet. The toss bouquet was beautiful too. Tonya was very accomodating to changes and quickly responded to inquiries. I would highly reccommend her!

Tonya was very easy to work with and her flowers were beautiful! When we first started planning, we had a very limited floral budget, but she was the only florist that proposed using better quality flowers while staying within budget. We were able to expand our floral budget later on, yet she was still mindful to propose attractive designs using seasonal flowers to maximize our budget. We received many compliments on our flowers and are very happy we chose to work with her!

Tonya Evans of Occasional Flowers was delightful to work with while planning the flowers for our wedding. She listens to your input and also makes helpful suggestions to enhance what you have in mind. My bridal bouquet and the table arrangements were all lovely. Our only disappointment were the wrist corsages, most of which fell apart.

Occasional Flowers did a beautiful job on our flowers and centerpieces. After just one meeting, Tonya was able to produce everything just as we'd envisioned. She was great to work with, and everything was in the right place at the right time our our wedding day. Her work is beautiful - and very affordable. I'd definitely use her again.

The flowers and centerpieces were beautiful-just what I was looking for! Tonya was wiling to work with me last minute and was very clear, prompt, and professional in her interactions with me. The only thing that I would have changed was I wish the flowers had been delivered earlier. They came an hour and a half before the ceremony, but we had started taking pictures a few hours before that & had to do without the flowers. But that was a miscommunication on both our parts! All-in-all, I was very satisfied & would recommend this vendor!

Tonya was one of the first vendors I found. We met at a restaurant and she had pictures of every conceivable flower in the universe. It was really fun looking through them and working with her to pick out what I wanted. As the wedding planning progressed and I began to realize what other things were costing, I had to scale back my flowers. Tonya was wonderful in helping me. I did not ever feel pressure to spend more than I felt I could afford. Tonya was always very attentive and responsive.

The Orange Gerbera Dasies, Carnations & Tropical Amazon Roses were breath taking. On our wedding day, Tonya & Carolyn (our cake lady) magically combined their creativity to display the most beautiful wedding cake I've ever seen. On the front of the gazebo organza fabric sways were attached with 2 striking floral clusters.

The white stephanotis were not as perky as I would have liked. Also when I arrived @ the bridal suite I was impressed that bridal bouquets were in vases throughout the 2 rooms. However, I learned that Tonya had put them all in a bucket of water. It was Jo Anne, our ceremony host, who took the extra step.

I couldn't have been happier with the flower arrangements, they were exactly what we orderd! :) At times Tonya wasn't as responsive as I would like. I wouldn't get a response at times for days. Overall, I would recommend her services.

I worked with Tonya strictly through email since we live out of the country, and she was able to provide exactly what we wanted. We originally were going to go through a wholesaler because we put the decorations together ourselves, but Tonya actually beat their prices. We had her make bouquets for myself and the bridesmaids and corsages for our grandmothers. They all came out beautifully and just like we had discussed. The fact that she delivered everything to us at the hotel on the day of the wedding was exceptionally helpful. We were very pleased in working with Occasional Flowers.

I was very happy with our flowers. Tonya was professional to deal with and her proposal for the flowers I wanted blew the others out of the water. We kept the flowers really simple, roses and calla lillies made up the bridal party flowers and boutenniers, and our centrepieces were 3 small vases with either hydrangeas, greem mum's or cream roses in them on each table. And baby's breath in mason jars for the cocktail tables. Everything looked lovely and the bridal party flowers arrived at the hotel right on time and looking exactly as promised. We got to our reception a little early and so happened to see the reception flowers being delivered literally 15 minutes before the reception was due to begin. It all worked out fine and we would never have known if we didn't get there early, but that was cutting it pretty close. Overall I would recommend this vendor, the flowers looked lovely and fresh and were reasonably priced, and we got to send our guests home with the centerpieces which was nice.

At our first meeting with Tanya, she seemed very flexible in terms of our budget and our needs. However we were disappointed with the final product. The bridal bouquet was smaller than we talked about and all of the groomsmen's boutier's fell apart before we even got them on! Afterwards, I let her know about the problem and she blamed it on a poor crop of those type of flowers that year. However, she didn't let us know and didn't give us the opportunity to change the flowers.

Occasional Flowers responded with the following comments:

directly from Emily's contract: "Small, beautiful cluster of 18-20 White miniature calla lilies gathered together and finished with a sheer ivory ribbon wrapped around the stems." This is what we discussed and what I delivered to her. I will say the Hybrid Delphinium boutonnieres where a learning experience for me and I had no way of knowing ahead of time that they would fall apart. If I had know I most certainly would not have sent them out and would have contacted her and provided alternate options.
