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.

We are thrilled to be in three cities - SF, LA, and DC - and you can expect the same high level of service across the board. We train all of our staff in our flagship DC studio, ensuring that no matter in which city you need us, we can deliver 5 star service. While we do have multiple offices, you will get boutique-style services because each city's office is specialized in it's region with a close-knit team of planners, florists, and event producers. We also take a limited amount of events per week, so no need to get on a conveyer belt.

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

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!

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!

Liza is the best! She was able to make my daughter's citrus wedding concept so perfect. The luscious citrus garlands strung across the backs of the chairs and railing behind the bridal party at the Newseum looked fabulous. Then they were re-purposed at the reception, hugging the sweetheart table, lining the wedding cake table, providing a backdrop to the wedding guest book puzzle table, and elsewhere. They completed the look of the gorgeous and varied floral and fruit arrangements on the tables. The guests even enjoyed the sweet clementines scattered on each table. My daughter's vision became Liza's vision. It was a pleasure working this Liza over this past year and I highly recommend Liza and StudioDBI to anyone.

My wedding was this past weekend and the flowers from Studio DBI were absolutely beautiful! Liza was very easy to work with and she really understood the vision I was trying to achieve. The bouquets were so elegant and the ceremony and reception decor provided the perfect splash of color. I would certainly work with her again the future! Thank you again, Liza!

Liza did an amazing job with the flowers for my wedding! I was looking for simple bouquets and a few center pieces for my wedding in Old Town. Unlike many brides, I didn't have an exact vision for my flowers other than "blue and green." What Liza designed was simple amazing - perfect green and blue bouquets for my bridesmaids, a stunning ivory bouquet for me (complete with sparkles!) and some beautiful centerpieces. I could not have been happier with the product.

In addition, Liza was incredibly responsive and flexible. She sent great summaries of the flowers she recommended and followed up about a month before the wedding to make sure that everything was on track. She was perfectly on time on our wedding day and totally wowed us.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We used DBI for our recent wedding and were very pleased with the results! Like a previous reviewer, I didn't have a real vision for my flowers other than color and a couple of flowers I liked. Liza did an amazing job putting together a proposal for me that was within my budget and incorporated the flowers I knew I wanted. It was simple yet elegant and exactly what we wanted.

I had different ceremony and reception sites, and this was no problem for DBI. They showed up on time to both sites, and were incredibly professional. They truly went above and beyond when one of the centerpieces got jostled by another vendor, and came back to our reception venue to fix it! They were also incredibly flexible, and let us keep the glassware and flowers an extra day to use at brunch.

Their work is beautiful and I'd recommend them to anyone!

I had wanted to keep the flowers at my wedding to a minimum, but have the ceremony space which was indoors be filled with trees. Not only was Lisa on board with using a small amount of flowers to make a statement she bent over backwards helping us plan how to create the look we envisioned.
The flowers arrived on time and were exactly what we talked about.

I look forward to working with Studio DBI again!

I am so thrilled that I got to work with Liza and will sing her praises over and over to anyone in search of an extremely talented event designer. Liza is not just your average florist. She looks at your event as a whole and is excellent at understanding your vision. However, beyond my own vision, what impressed me the most about Liza from the start, was that she was able to enhance my vision and suggest small ways to make ideas pop. I decided to work with Liza for the simple reason that I immediately trusted her to come up with unique, but stunning solutions when faced with a challenge, rather than look to me for direction. She just made things easy and I instantly trusted her judgment.

Not to mention, Liza's flowers were simply incredible. She 110% nailed the look I was going for and I continue to receive so many compliments as guests reflect on the event. There isn't a single thing I would have changed.

I also hired Liza for overall event design and I was thrilled with how effortlessly she made all the pieces come together -- paper products, linens, chair rentals, draping, etc. all came through her and she helped streamline the process and eliminate the number of vendors that I had to manage. She even went so far as to set-up a final walk-through meeting with our team at the hotel in the weeks leading up to the wedding so that I felt comfortable with all the moving pieces.

Finally, Liza provides excellent value for her services. Her flower prices were extremely reasonable as compared to her peers and she offered excellent transparency in terms of the costs of all the services she outsourced. Liza truly seems equipped to be able to make a major impact to your event no matter your budget.

Thank you, Liza!!

My husband and I planned our wedding in about 2.5 months. When my mother-in-law identified locally-owned, small business Studio DBI and owner Liza Bourkard as the best florist for our DC-area wedding, we didn't hesitate to move forward -- and we were so happy we did. As an individual, Liza is awesome -- she is the consummate professional (creative, organized, responsive, timely) and really nice. She gave us excellent suggestions for our chuppah, bouquet and center pieces and upon request linked us to our deejay, DJ Mark Maskell (www.djmaskell.com), who proved amazing as well from serving as our Master of Ceremonies to going above and beyond throughout our wedding. We can't say enough good things about Liza and Studio DBI, and Mark! Because they are both such engaging personalities, they will certainly add to the warmth of your event. Independently they are both phenomenal at what they do and together they pack a one-two punch (we later learned Mark's wife is a wedding planner so I'm convinced there is no challenge to large for this dynamic duo!) We'd wholeheartedly recommend Studio DBI and DJ Mark Maskell to family, friends and business associates.

My husband and I planned our wedding in about 2.5 months. When my mother-in-law identified locally-owned, small business Studio DBI and owner Liza Bourkard as the best florist for our DC-area wedding, we didn't hesitate to move forward -- and we were so happy we did. As an individual, Liza is awesome -- she is the consummate professional (creative, organized, responsive, timely) and really nice. She gave us excellent suggestions for our chuppah, bouquet and center pieces and upon request linked us to our deejay, DJ Mark Maskell (www.djmaskell.com), who proved amazing as well from serving as our Master of Ceremonies to going above and beyond throughout our wedding.

My husband and I highly recommend Studio DBI for wedding flowers, design, and coordination. Thanks to Liza, we had a beautiful, flawless, October wedding at Decatur House in Washington, DC. Over the months that we worked with Liza, we were always impressed with her patience. Liza listened to us and had a genuine interest in learning what we had in mind for our wedding. We were also impressed with how quickly she responded to all of the numerous e-mails we sent her way. We also appreciated that Liza was willing to work with the vendors we had already selected and were impressed with the vendor referrals she sent our way. Thanks to the coordination by Studio DBI, we enjoyed our wedding day without stress. Finally, the flowers were exquisite. We were so pleased that the Studio DBI team delivered some of the floral arrangements to another site so we could enjoy them again the day after our wedding.

I LOVE Studio DBI. Liza could not be easier to work with. I had a very specific concept of what I wanted for our wedding flowers in terms of "feel" and style but no idea as to specific flowers. Liza was absolutely spot on with her interpretation of our vision- the flowers were simply lovely and perfect. Translating subjective verbs and emotions related to flowers is not easily done and Liza excels at her job. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and spot-on with my vision. She even made several last minute adjustments and additions the week of the wedding without comment or complaint- she just made everything work. It was obvious that she truly cared about the job and went above and beyond to make everything perfect.

I found DBI online after comparing several other florists I found online and a florist my family has used in the past. I feel lucky to have found Liza and she is now our go-to florist. If I hadn't already booked a day-of coordinator I have no doubt Liza would excel at event planning as well. She is the type of vendor you want, easy to work with, great communicator, affordable, friendly and calm. And her talent with floral arrangement is impeccable.

We got married this past September and I must say that the highlight of the experience was working with Liza and her team. I first met with her regarding our floral design but after one meeting I knew there was no one else I could trust the details to but her. I am not well versed in flowers but my fiance and I had a very specific vision that we could not quite put into words. Liza took my "muddy" description and turned it into a crystal clear picture.
We also opted to use DBI for our planning and I must say, were it not for her attention to detail and comforting words during my "bridezilla" moments, I don't know if we would have had such a magical wedding. The day of went completely smooth and we were able to kick back and enjoy because we were so confident in the DBI team. I will definitly be going to them for all other big celebrations to come!

Liza , aka DBI events, helped to make my wedding all I wanted it to be. Liza knows how to "run with the punches". While I don't recommend making changes at the last minute. I DO recommend Liza. She was adaptable and make the revisions I requested. I respected her as the gifted designer that she is. And this talent enabled her to bring the verbal rambling of this bride into a room filled with color, warmth, beauty, and simplistic elegance.

From the simplistic, elegant and clean floral table displays to exceeding my expectations with the bouquets I was pleased.( could you tell). The popcorn table was great and your ability to work within my budget was even better.

I would only recommend DBI for events that you want people to rave about, be impressed by, or stand in amazement and awe. And only then.

Studio DBI were professional and creative, always amazing to work with! We loved their flower arrangements, and couldn't have imagined a more easily flowing and relaxed wedding day, as they provided day-of planning services. Liza and her team met with us within a month of our wedding and constructed a detailed wedding day schedule, I did not spend one second of my wedding day worrying about the timing of events! In addition, Liza went above and beyond to make our wedding day special- including a late night delivery of our wedding cake to our nearby hotel suite, since we weren't able to enjoy it during the reception! That is just one example of the many ways that Liza and Studio DBI go out of their way to provide the highest quality personalized services!

Liza and her team where so amazing. Throughout the planning process Liza was super responsive and accommodating. She even answered the phone off hours when I was in the store with some random thought I wanted to share! I was so shocked that she was willing to have the conversation. During the site visit, she had so many wonderful ideas while staying within our budget. We had already received the quote and proposed flowers, but being on the site it was like her creativity was sparked. By making the slight adjustments based on the actual location, I really believe our wedding was more beautiful then we could have imagined.

On the day of the wedding, her team arrived on time and quickly proceeded to set-up the event. They were quiet and respectful and worked well with the catering company. Had they not come in to give us our bouquets, I would have never know they were there! I loved working with Studio DBI and would do it again tomorrow without a second thought!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend Studio DBI (especially Liza) to anyone planning an event. They are very professional, responsive, creative, and friendly. They took our wedding idea and completely transformed it into the modern hip atmosphere that we were going for. Guests are still raving about it. It was absolutely perfect.Even the party favors were unique and fun (we did hang over kits and Liza put stickers of our puppy on the back of the little kit and called it "Hair of the Dog"). Don't look anywhere else, choose Studio DBI. They are AWESOME!

I wish I could fully express how AMAZING my experience with Studio DBI has been! Working with Liza was truly a joy, and her work was absolute perfection!

When I first contacted Studio DBI to discuss my wedding bouquet, the wedding was about four months away. In my initial conversation with Liza, I was immediately impressed by her professionalism, how well she listened, and with her creative suggestions. Over the course of the next four months, Liza was always quick to respond to my (many, many, many) emails and phone calls, and was always pleasant, caring, calm, and helpful. Not only was I impressed by Liza's exceptional customer service, but I was blown away by her creative abilities.

Liza crafted (what I will always consider to be) the GREATEST WEDDING BOUQUET IN HISTORY for me. Liza listened to my unusual requests to include deer antlers, cotton, and wheat in my wedding bouquet, and she really understood my obsession with the color yellow. She stayed true to my vision and produced a bouquet that far exceeded my expectations.

Since the bride's bouquet is probably the second wedding detail that gets noticed (only after the wedding dress), I was thrilled that my bouquet was absolutely stunning. I was so enamored with my bouquet that I opted to dry it after the wedding. My Liza-crafted wedding bouquet dried beautifully. I proudly displayed it near the front of our apartment and am reminded of the greatest day of my life every time I walk through the front door.

I cannot thank Studio DBI enough for their beautiful flowers they did for my wedding! They were picture perfect. Life has been hectic and challenging so it made planning a wedding not as a priority. I had done some research through wedding wire for florists and came across Studio DBI. Immediately after sending a request, I received an email from Liza about setting up some time to talk about what I was looking for and more so get to know me. We quickly connected and was happy that we hit it off. Within our initial phone conversation, Liza knew exactly the style of my wedding and what I was looking for. I sent her some pictures of flowers I liked and had in mind. She quickly put together a proposal and photos of various flowers that she had picked in keeping with what we discussed and what I had sent over. Liza and I kept in touch throughout the planning which was great. A week before my wedding she had emailed me to let me know that peonies may not be available as the weather has pushed back the time when they are supposed to bloom. She had suggested another type of flower which would give a similar look - I trusted her and knew that no matter what with or without peonies they would still be a beautiful arrangement.

On the day of my wedding I had the flowers arrive to the hotel where I was getting ready, Liza had arrived with her colleague to my suite to drop them off. I could not believe how gorgeous the flowers were. She surprised me with being able to get the peonies! I loved them so much! They were everything I was looking for. I would recommend Studio DBI to anyone.

Liza was so sweet and easy to work with, I was happy to have her and her team be part of my big day.

I do not think words can express how awesome our wedding flowers from DBI events were. From our very first meeting with Liza, she had so many great ideas. Since our wedding was in November, I wanted to use fall colors but wasn't really excited about red, yellow and orange. Liza suggested deep purple, red and blue as an alternative, which was a great combination. The flowers used in my bouquet were so unique, as opposed to traditional wedding flowers. Also, we were married in a building that use to be a library, so I really wanted to play up the library theme. Liza suggested she create "book trees." Basically she used pages from books as leaves to create tall centerpieces. The book trees also had garlands of flowers throughout. They were such a conversation piece and really tied the whole library theme into the reception. The service provide by DBI events is above and beyond that of a florist and the prices are comparable.

We can't even begin to put into words how amazing Liza is as a decorator and a coordinator. She was simply the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding.

Her taste is unbelievable. After just a few conversations, she was able to propose decor options quickly that were right along the lines of what we wanted. We had a lot of opinions of what we were looking for, and each time she would respond right away and give us more options, on the phone and in person. She knows the area very well and works with so many vendors that it was magnificent. The wedding ceremony and reception turned out beautiful, and she was able to do so many things with a tight budget. It looked so elegant.

She was even more impressive as a coordinator. There was not a single thing she was not on top of during our wedding and well in advance. We hired her as our day-of coordinator, but she was talking to vendors and coordinating months in advance. She always gave it 110%, having phone calls and e-mails with us whenever we needed to talk about something, talking to our vendors multiple times so that everything was perfect, and having a minute by minute schedule that was executed flawlessly. Even when little things came up during the wedding, she handled them with such grace that we never knew many of the things that happened. She was s huge part of why our wedding was a blast and could not have been the same without her.

If you have the chance to work with Liza, definitely do not pass it up. She's simply amazing.

I didn't really think I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding to look like. I met with Liza and let her know what I had planned so far and some general ideas of what I wanted. I didn't think it was helpful at the time, but she must have massaged enough information out of me because not only did she come up with a beautiful designs, they complemented my wedding seamlessly.

I didn't really think I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding to look like. I met with Liza and let her know what I had planned so far and some general ideas of what I wanted. I didn't think it was helpful at the time, but she must have massaged enough information out of me because not only did she come up with a beautiful designs, they complemented my wedding seamlessly. From the ceremony to the reception, her pieces set the tone. They were original and fresh, but classy and timeless. I cannot recommend Liza and DBI events highly enough! Read less

DBI Events was exactly what we needed. Liza is flexible and so good at what she does. My mom even commented on how perfectly the flowers looked. She some how achieved the antique/rustic look we wanted without the flowers looking old or damaged. Perfect! She was really a pleasure to work with. If I had to do it over again I would have absolutely used DBI Events again.

Liza was great! I had only a very small budget to spend on flowers, and she was able to come up with creative and beautiful flowers for us. The table arrangements, especially were just gorgeous! I told her the mood I wanted to create and what colors I liked and she came back very quickly with a detailed proposal that included photos and descriptions. She was very professional and easy to work with as well!

One word: AMAZING! Actually, one word is not enough to describe the work that DBI Events did for our wedding. The event design was simply stunning - gorgeous arrangements with so much style and at the same time so unique that it was even more beautiful than I could ever imagine! Liza is amazing to work with, she understood right away the look and feel of our wedding and she worked within our budget to create magnificent bouquets, centerpieces, bouts and chuppah. Everyone at our wedding could not stop commenting on the beautiful flower design! I cannot recommend DBI Events enough!

When choosing vendors for my wedding, one piece of advice I received was to meet with at least three companies before making a decision. When it came time to choose a florist, I actually met with four potential vendors and spoke on the phone with countless others before luckily finding DBI. When I first spoke with Liza over the phone, we talked for almost an hour about the breakdown of my floral needs; after our conversation, I sent her various images of centerpieces and bouquets that I liked. Soon after, when we met to discuss everything in more detail, it was obvious to me that Liza and DBI were the perfect choice for my wedding.

Liza wanted to know all the details—what my husband and I wanted the “feel” of our wedding to be, the design my wedding dress, etc.— and she really cared about having a cohesive theme for all my wedding flowers, manifesting what I truly wanted, and staying within my budget. After our meeting, she promptly responded to all my emails and phone calls with follow up questions or tweaks that came to mind—and was happy to incorporate any updates. For example, I was choosing between a white orchid centerpiece and a more colorful mix of hydrangeas and roses. When we left the meeting, I had decided on the white orchids. Later, after deliberating with my sister and sister-in-law, we felt like the more colorful flower mix would better in my venue. Liza had absolutely no problems with changing course—it was clear that she was there to bring my vision to life. Every time I spoke or emailed with her, I felt like I was speaking with my sister since I felt so comfortable and at ease, and at the same time, she was so professional, remembering every last detail without any hesitation (everything from ribbon color choices and ceremony as well as reception flower choices).

A note on the budget: I remember sharing the image of the white orchid centerpiece that I originally wanted with another florist in Georgetown and she laughed at me when I told her what my budget was (and later accidently sent me an email again making fun of me!). On the other hand, from the very beginning, Liza assured me that what I wanted was compatible with my budget and we tailored everything to ensure that I stayed within what I had in mind to spend.

On the day of my wedding, during the cocktail hour, the wedding coordinator took my husband and I aside and asked us if we would like to take a peek at the ballroom (this was just minutes before the guests were to be seated for dinner). The flowers in the room just took our breath away—it was exactly what I wanted: the tall centerpieces were grand, sitting in very dramatic vases with submerged orchids, the flowers sitting on top were a beautiful, full mixture of hydrangeas and roses and the low centerpieces served as an elegant counterbalance. I remember my sister had a chance to see the room before everyone else and she too remarked: “This is exactly what you wanted!!!!”

I can’t say enough amazing things about Liza and her staff. They are professional, prompt, flexible, budget-friendly, and most importantly work wonders with flowers and treated me like I was their only client. Going forward, I will be using DBI for any and all upcoming celebrations and events and will recommend them to all my friends and family.

Liza was a joy to work with and was a sea of calm amidst much wedding chaos planning. Not only was she completely patient with a perfectionist bride, but she did an excellent job of taking the ideas and bringing them to life. We wanted a warm environment but that was also cheerful and that would speak to a Moroccan inspired color palette. Everyone commented on how beautiful our tables looked and I personally feel her knowledge of flowers and eye for style and decor made our wedding exactly what we wanted.

A friend of mine sent me a link to Liza's blog knowing I was looking for someone to do my wedding flowers and decor and I instantly fell in love with her designs. Her retro flare, edgy undertones and classy style all shine brilliantly through her work. She worked with me, sensitive to my taste and adaptive to the site and occasion, with a flow of endless creative ideas and the patience of a saint. Liza has a burning passion for the business that is apparent in her work and is incredibly refreshing to work with. Her fun loving friendly personality lends well to working closely together creating something intimate and personal. Aside from being warm, receptive and exceptionally creative, Liza is extremely professional and punctual. I look forward to hiring Liza for every special occasion and party I throw in the future, because I know without a doubt with Liza's touch it will be more beautiful than I could have envisioned on my own. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone with taste, class, edge, and a budget.

Melanie and I could not have asked for anything more from DBI. The work was beautiful and exactly what we would have done if we were able to do this kind of stuff ourselves. Liza was available and was quick to answer emails and questions. Her guidance and service was priceless. Liza made the process of picking flowers and arrangements painless and easy, which as the groom, I valued. Everything was perfect and we were ecstatic to have Liza and DBI be part of our special day. Thank You!

DBI is expensive, but they have everything you could possibly need - from the candy bar supplies, to a wealth of vases, gorgeous fabrics, flower chandeliers, access to stunning flowers and more. Liza was fantastic. She found creative ways to make my vision work within my budget. She was incredibly flexible in terms of redesigning arrangements, changing ideas, squeezing in calls between my work meetings, etc. The flowers themselves were stunning. I got so many compliments on the bridal party's bouquets and the table arrangements. She worked with my caterer and wedding planner to design the wedding cake and provide the flowers. She even surprised us with a stunningly gorgeous arrangement for the bride and groom dining chairs. Our theme was modern-rustic, and we had an outdoor wedding. She created lush, soft, flowing bouquets and arrangements. Even though it was 97 degrees the day of our wedding, everything held up beautifully. The pictures of those flowers - even at the end of the night are still just so beautiful! Liza came prepared to keep the flowers chilled in the heat. Super thoughtful and detail oriented. Really - just wonderful to work with her!

We contracted with Liza Bourkard at StudioDBI to act as the coordinator for my daughter’s wedding based upon a couple of phone calls and my daughter’s meeting with her more than a year ago. Liza’s role was to begin 6 weeks from the event and the goal was to turn over the management of the vendors and the day of timeline to Lisa. What she did over the year, with just a few suggestions and phone calls:
• Suggested a much better location for the event than the one we were considering
• Identified a wonderful photographer when we were having a great deal of difficulty securing one we liked
• Pointing us to a DJ who was as perfect as one could have been
• Helping us find a last minute videographer who handled himself with great care and kindness
The key, however, were the actions of Liza and her assistant Stephanie near and on the day of the event. They developed a carefully crafted timeline with everything timed and practiced. The rehearsal dinner really included a rehearsal of the ceremony. We ran it through enough to work through the kinks and the awkwardness, changing an order here and a word there. The actual ceremony would follow with ease and comfort.
Everything was planned in advanced, the timeline well established and the hotel all set. Nonetheless, things happen. The key is that, at all time, even when I was aware of what was happening (and to be honest, I usually found out after things were fixed), I was always greeted with “we’ve already taken care of it” or “we’ll take care of it”. Most importantly, everything really was taken care of.
Whether it was the bridesmaid being stuck in the elevator, or the Chuppah not fitting into the room or my daughter needing to eat something right after the ceremony (she’d not eaten all day and was starving!), Liza or Stephanie just took care of things. There are undoubtedly other things that went sideways that I’ll never even knew because they were just handled. Thank you Liza and Stephanie.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Liza Bourkard and Studio DBI for my wedding. When I first met with Liza, I had a vague idea of the overall look that I was trying to create for my wedding, but was at a loss as to how to execute it. Liza walked me through a series of images, which allowed me to develop a specific look for my wedding. I met with two other vendors after meeting with Liza and found myself comparing them to the way she approached her floral design. I ultimately hired Liza and Studio DBI to do the flowers for my wedding and I was thrilled with the results. Liza is extremely responsive and professional, and I highly recommend Liza and Studio DBI.

The flowers were great, from what I saw. I rarely notice flowers at an event, but I did at our wedding. My boutonniere fell off before the ceremony, but that's probably because I was giving too many hugs. Other than that it was fantastic.
