Welcome to Studio DBI! We are a full service event design company, offering planning, coordinating, design consulting, and in-house floral services. Our unique structure allows us to truly taylor services to the client's specific needs. Whether you're looking for month-of coordinating, floral arrangements, or the full shabang we can make it happen.

What makes us special: by offering a one-stop shop, you limit the number of vendors you deal with and the time you spend going from meeting to meeting. We will work with you to not only put your vision together but to also execute on it. How many planners have an in-house floral team, ability to bring in lighting, draping, and rentals, and put it all on one invoice? Not many. While DBI has quickly become known for natural garden floral arrangements reflecting a sense of curated nature, we are not limited to just organic elements. Between our extensive decor inventory, those draping and lighting teams, and fantastic vendor relationships we are able to envision and execute on truly unique soirees. Larger-than-life paper flowers? We'll produce them. Flower chandeliers - you got it! We are a team of organized creatives, who love pushing each other to constantly think outside of the box. We're not just all talk- check out our past client and vendor reviews, as well as our portfolio.

Ok - enough of us talking. We'd love to hear from you - your vision, your ideas, your questions. Email us at info[at]studiodbi[dot]com. Read less

We used Liza's floral and wedding coordinating services for our recent wedding and I have to say that I was thrilled with both. The flowers at our ceremony and reception looked beautiful and Liza even threw in little touches like flowers in the bathrooms that were not included in our contract but which I really appreciated. In picking out the floral design Liza's approach was very practical- she was prepared for our first meeting with a slew of photos on her ipad for us to review which made it really easy to hone in on what I liked and didn't like. Other florists asked us to describe "our vision" for the event which as someone who did not really have one I found difficult. Liza was a really good listener and she was able to quickly interpret from my vague description exactly the look we were going for and executed it just as we discussed without a lot of further back and forth after our first meeting. She also was able to deliver a beautiful, simple and modern Chuppah which went perfectly with the look of the wedding. As far as wedding coordinating services Liza was very organized, responsive, and accessible. On the wedding day itself everything was executed exactly how we had discussed and I saw her working feverishly throughout but she never once approached me with any issues other than gently making suggestions about moving on to the next stage of the timeline so I didn't have to worry about a thing all night. At the end of the night all of our stuff was packed up and delivered back to our hotel room before we even got there and thoughtfully my bouquet and leftover cake were stored in the hotel refrigerator. I felt as if every detail had been thought through and that Liza really went the extra mile to make sure that everything went off without a hitch.

Liza Bourkard is a gem! She worked with me in the month prior to my daughter's October 19, 2014 wedding. She was energetic and organized in tying up loose ends. She attended a pre-wedding meeting at the venue, worked up timelines and lists, and provided the florals and tape top designs for us. It was at the wedding, however, that she really shone! She and her assistant were on site early and worked throughout the day and evening to smoothly handle the "run of show" as well as the emergencies that arose (an extensive pipe/drape installation that collapsed because it was not properly weighted by the rental company; as well as appalling dinner service by the caterer). After the event, Liza followed up with the providers whose performance caused us issue, wrote emails to back up our complaints; and ensured that our satisfaction with our event was at the forefront of her efforts. She is truly a gifted professional.

Liza and the rest of the Studio DBI team provided exceptional service for our wedding on Oct. 4! We used her for month-of services, which was the best decision we made for our DC wedding of about 200 people (mostly out of towners).

For any brides who feel that they don't want a wedding planner the whole engagement (for budgetary reasons or because you want to plan it yourself and think it's fun -- I was both), I cannot recommend Liza enough for month-of planning. The month-of is when all the fun starts and you want to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy all of your hard work while she handles all the details, which she did. When you are that close to the wedding, you want to be able to spend time with your family, friends and fiance; you DO NOT want to be on the phone to a million vendors, sending out timelines, going over logistics and worrying about details -- trust me. I did not have to speak to a single vendor to confirm anything or figure out timing or details. She put together a DETAILED and well-thought out timeline and was able to execute a flawless weekend for us. Logistics and the nitty-gritty details were NOT my strong suit, and she took care of it all perfectly.

Finally, Liza and her assistants are all so laid back and enjoyable to be around. She never inserted her opinion without me asking, but when I did ask her advice on something, she had such good ideas that we never would have thought of ourselves. You can tell she is able to adapt to any and every style of wedding and be fully on board with it without any judgement or unwarranted opinions. We really appreciated that about her.

All in all, Liza and the Studio DBI team made for a fun, relaxing and PERFECTLY executed wedding weekend for us that was flawless from start to finish. My family, husband and I could not recommend her highly enough!

They were professional and fabulous from our first meeting to the last minute of the wedding and were worth every penny and then some. I enjoyed my daughter's wedding immensely because I didn't have to worry about a thing. They thought of things I didn't even know existed that made the wedding beautiful and elegant. Could not imagine it without all their help!!

Hiring Studio DBI for month-of coordination was one the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. We called Liza three months out, somewhat stressed about lack of space in the restaurant where we were having both the ceremony and reception. We had interviewed other coordinators who were skeptical that we would be able to do what we wanted to do there. Not Liza--she was excited about everything we described and immediately got to work coordinating with the restaurant. Within days she had developed a floor plan and a schedule that put our minds completely at ease. Here’s everything else Liza and team did to make our wedding extra-special: Confirmed all vendors--if there were any issues, we never heard of them; provided a structure for a ceremony backdrop after our failed DIY attempt; directed a rehearsal at our apartment on the night of Liza’s own anniversary; prepared a bridal bouquet that perfectly reflected the bride’s style and the feel of the wedding; made sure we paid all vendors and recommended tip amounts; oversaw all set-up and takedown at the restaurant; returned all personal equipment and decorations to our apartment and even walked our dog so we could stay out later. We are so grateful to Liza and team!

I loved working with Liza and her team! They provided the flowers for my wedding and they turned out so beautiful! They were extremely responsive, friendly and reliable. After meeting her, i trusted her, the team and their work instantly which led to NO stress at all for the wedding regarding the flowers! The end result was far better and more amazing than what I tried to envision and describe. I would recommend DBI Studio to everyone.

Liza and the team at DBI were awesome! She came up with really creative suggestions to fit what we wanted -- which was challenging because we had no color, no theme and just a couple of wildly varying pinterest pictures to go by! I LOVED the bouquets, the boutineers, the garland for the ceremony and all the different table arrangements. We had the ceremony and the reception in the same space, and the flowers really helped transform so it felt totally different. She had really good suggestions for varying the arrangements by tables to keep the tables uncluttered and save us a little money. Liza also gave us great advice on linens and lighting to help really make the room. Highly recommend!

She came up with really creative suggestions to fit what we wanted -- which was challenging because we had no color, no theme and just a couple of wildly varying pinterest pictures to go by! I LOVED the bouquets, the boutineers, the garland for the ceremony and all the different table arrangements. We had the ceremony and the reception in the same space, and the flowers really helped transform so it felt totally different. She had really good suggestions for varying the arrangements by tables to keep the tables uncluttered and save us a little money. Liza also gave us great advice on linens and lighting to help really make the room. Highly recommend! Read less
