My flowers were gorgeous! From the first meeting I had with Phyllis, it was like she could read my mind about what I wanted for my bouquets, arrangements, etc. Which was great because I don't know that much about flowers :) Near wedding time, I realized I was closing in on my budget limit for flowers, and she was so helpful in suggesting options for what we could use for centerpieces and making sure that everything was still beautiful without spending quite as much. I am so glad the we found the Enchanted Florist!

We worked closely with Phyllis from Enchanted Florist. From our first meeting we felt at ease and knew that Phyllis and her team would make our wedding very special. The flowers on the tables were beautiful, the bouquets stunning and we used the mother of the brides lace from her wedding to wrap the brides bouquet.
Still, we have guests asking us about our flowers, including the caterer who will recommend Enchanted Florist.
I would surely return and would recommend this florist for all your needs..Just a great team to work with!

During one of our walks around Old Town, we happened upon Enchanted Florist. What caught our attention was a stunning red wreath displayed. When we got engaged a year later, we contacted Enchanted Florist immediately. Phyllis is wonderful to work with. My fiance (at the time) purchased flowers for me on several occasions from Enchanted Florist and they were always gorgeous. On our wedding day, they did not disappoint. The arrangements were stunning, the single flowers and bouttoniers for our guests were perfect and my bouquet was exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you, Phyllis, for your hard work, eye for detail and amazing creations.

Phyllis and the Enchanted Florist Staff created beautiful floral work for my wedding. The flowers were outstanding! Even the little cups for the cocktail tables were beautiful. The bouquets and table centerpieces were gorgeous. I loved the dahlias, the various hydrangeas and the orchids. The berries and red leaves really were perfect and made it look like autumn. It exceeded my expectations!

Flowers make the day special. Fresh flowers are a luxury and a feast for the senses. Your flowers were a delight! I could not have been happier. I am so glad we chose you as our florist.

Natalie did an amazing job on our wedding flowers. She was very helpful and responsive throughout the process, taking time to look at pictures I had sent for ideas. I had also wanted a smaller bouquet and she totally knocked it out of the park - the flowers were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! We got many compliments on them by the guests as well. I would highly recommend the Enchanted Florist for any weddings or special occasions!

Amazing does not begin to describe Phyllis and all of the lovely ladies at The Enchanted Florist! The flowers and vision that they created for our June 15th wedding far surpassed our expectations! I came with an idea of what I had envisioned for our wedding day and they exceeded my expectations! So responsive, professional and truly made us feel so welcomed at their lovely shop in Alexandria. Thank you so much for making our day even more special with the unique touches you made to our bouquets, boutineers, flower dog leash and collar, ceremony and reception flowers...you all are truly the best!

The Enchanted Florist in Old Town is a true Gem. I interviewed many florists and I never felt like any of them could quite understand what I was looking for. Well, Phyllis came along. She is an amazing person, her staff is very professional and talented. We used Phyllis and her Enchanted team for our Rehearsal Dinner and our Wedding flowers. They did an amazing job, my flowers were EXACTLY what I wanted and more. My bouquet was gorgeous, the peonies smelled like heaven and the flowers held up great so we re-used them for our post wedding brunch! I would recommend Phyllis and her team to everyone no matter what the occasion!
Lots of Love and thanks to the Enchanted team!

The Enchanted Florist is one of the vendors used by the Morrison House in their elopement package. I decided to upgrade the flowers that were provided as part of the package, and The Enchanted Florist did a fabulous job! Natalie was responsive and ultimately exceeded my expectations in terms of the size and beauty of the arrangements and my bouquet. I highly recommend Natalie and her colleagues!

I had the pleasure of working with Phyllis Kennedy from Enchanted Florist. When I told her what I was looking for for my wedding she immediately understood and came up with the most beautiful recommendations within our price range. She is so tasteful and really knows she is doing - I trusted her fully to come up with gorgeous center pieces and bouquets. She also provided the best customer service- she is so sweet and makes you feel so excited for your upcoming wedding day. The floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres came out beautiful- she even designed my bouquet according to my size and the shape of my dress! I would recommend her to any bride!!

We had The Enchanted Florist do our bouquet and boutonniere for our wedding day. I provided the color and amount I wanted to spend, and they designed the bouquet entirely. It was amazingly beautiful, exactly what I had in mind. When we went to pick it up, we asked if they had any food safe flowers we could put on our cake - they were able to provide the perfect cake topping flowers for that too.

The Enchanted Florist is the best of the best when it comes to floral design. I received so many compliments on my wedding flowers, and I really enjoyed working with Phyllis. All of my centerpieces were just absolutely stunning. My bouquet was a work of art. I considered using another florist to cut some corners, but nothing compares to Enchanted. They're true artists! I had some ideas about the look, but I left the important decisions to them, and they did not disappoint! You will be glad you went with them.

So to be honest, Floral designers get married too. I undertook a lot on my own, but when my day approached all the ladies of Enchanted Florist were there in full force to help me get all that needed to get done, done and delivered. I could not have accomplished my vision without Phyllis's expertise, guidance, and kindness. And the experience that I had was not something exclusive and special me, it is what I see happen every weekend no matter the bride, no matter the venue, no matter the budget, and no matter the uniqueness of the style. As for me, the bride got what she wanted on her special day:)

The Enchanted Florist was not my first phone call to a florist regarding flowers for my daughter's wedding but it was certainly my last. From the first friendly voice on the phone a year before the wedding until wedding weekend was complete the entire staff was always friendly, personable, and wonderful to work with. They happily offered suggestions, loved that we wanted in-season flowers, offered rental vases to keep our costs lower, and provided the most beautiful, unique arrangements and bouquets I've ever seen. They love flowers, love design, and obviously love what they do. True works of art!! Pat Cunningham

I am so pleased with my wedding flowers from The Enchanted Florist! Everything was beautiful and so thoughtully crafted. At my initial appointment it was very clear I know nothing about flowers but they were so helpful and thoughtful of my budget--they weren't trying to upsell me as a clueless consumer, but instead were ready and willing to show me ways to repurpose arrangements throughout the wedding weekend and save money using in-season flowers. I could not be happier with the results of working with The Enchanted Florist and would absolutely recommend them to anyone getting married in or around Alexandria!

just coming down from the weekend’s high, and want to let you know how very, very happy we were w/ the flowers for sheila’s wedding! they were, to say the least, gorgeous!! and truly, exactly what sheila and I envisioned. the subtle, soft colors complimented the gowns and reflected on the romance and “enchanted” nature of the day and evening. I am also very glad we decided to do arrangements at the church— they were perfect! the escort table’s fabulous trumpet vase was delightful, and sara lit the candles at just the right moment!
I felt like I was at someone’s home (albeit, a very large one!) w/ the beautiful varied arrangements on the tables, in their own silver compotes, jefferson cups, and yes, I loved the tall slender arrangements, as well : )
I could go on and on, and I will, to anyone who is planning a wedding.... you are a joy to work w/ , and enchanted florist will be my recommendation to all brides (and grooms, after the wedding!!).

I have to confess that at first I was a little bit afraid about how my bouquets (one bridal, 2 bridesmaids + 3 boutineres) would come out. Spite of the fact I had great recommendations of The Enchanted florist, I had very short time to plan my wedding and even it's being my small wedding (the big one we'lll make next year in my home country Brazil) I wanted things to look nice.
I went to the shop after I email them, which I highly recommend because they are very busy, and Natalie was the person who attended me. She was very sweet and attentive and did her best to understand and take notes of everything I wanted, while also trying to manage the busy shop pace. I sent her pictures of the type of bouquets I had in mind, we talked about how we could make it work inside my budget and we closed the deal.
I was anxiously waiting to see how my bouquet would look like, and as I said before a little bit afraid, so I asked Natalie to send me a picture of the bouquet was ready, what she promptly did. And for my sweet surprise, it looked awesome already only by the picture. When I saw all bouquets in person and OMG, I was truly amazed. They were all awesome, exactly what I wanted. My wedding pictures were yellow and orange for the flowers, and the bouquets glow in every picture, they definitely gave that special touch to my wedding look and pictures ( I wish I could post a picture here). Highly recommended if you want a really personalized bouquet, thumbs up! :)

The Enchanted Florist was part of the elopement package at the Morrison House in Alexandria, VA. While I didn't choose them, I definitely would have if I had had to find my own vendors. I didn't want anything traditional for my bouquet, hated the idea of hydrangeas, roses and typical flowers and our color scheme of blue and yellow isn't the easiest to find flowers in. Yet they did an amazing job of taking all those ideas and turning them into an amazing and unique bouquet for me. The day of I realized I had forgotten to request two boutoneirres for the best man and man of honor, but they pulled two together in no time and without any issues. This, of course, I loved. Finally the Enchanted Florist can do whatever traditional wedding ideas you want, but if you are a little creative or aren't afraid to do something different they have amazing ideas there too.

The Enchanted Florist was part of the elopement package at the Morrison House in Alexandria, VA. While I didn't choose them, I definitely would have if I had had to find my own vendors. I didn't want anything traditional for my bouquet, hated the idea of hydrangeas, roses and typical flowers and our color scheme of blue and yellow isn't the easiest to find flowers in. Yet they did an amazing job of taking all those ideas and turning them into an amazing and unique bouquet for me. The day of I realized I had forgotten to request two boutoneirres for the best man and man of honor, but they pulled two together in no time and without any issues. This, of course, I loved. Finally the Enchanted Florist can do whatever traditional wedding ideas you want, but if you are a little creative or aren't afraid to do something different they have amazing ideas there too. Definitely go with Enchanted Florist and you won't be disappointed. Read less

The Enchanted Florist is amazing! They created the exact look and feel that we were looking for, while staying within our budget - we found the staff to be honest and forthright about costs, which was a great help during the planning process. They are very professional to work with, as evidenced when our initial contact left the company due to an out-of-state move. The transition to Natalie, our contract through the wedding, was flawless. After a few phone conversations and emails, Natalie and her team ran with the concept/design. And it was perfect - the right balance of arrangements, colors, and textures. We opted to use our own glassware, with no issues. As I said to Natalie after the wedding, they were able to make our happiest day also the prettiest, and we are so thankful! I look forward to shopping at the Enchanted Florist for special arrangements in the future. P.S.: If you are looking for a wreath to hang at the church or front door of your reception venue as part of your decor, definitely choose Enchanted Florist. The wreath they created for us was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen!

In early May Enchanted Florist created the floral arrangements for our daughter’s wedding luncheon at Restaurant Eve. The flowers for the luncheon were incredibly creative – fushia orchids with white hydrangeas and fun green apples to match the containers. In early June Enchanted Florist provided the flowers for our daughter’s wedding reception, dinner, and breakfast at the Lorien Hotel. Enchanted continued the fushia orchid theme for the events at the Lorien beginning with two gorgeous fushia orchids in white cylinder containers. Many of our guests wanted the name of the florist as the room was just beautiful. Natalie’s enthusiasm and created talents provided a lovely backdrop to all of our daughter’s wedding events.

Phyllis and her team were amazing to work with. My consultation with Phyllis was completely different than any other florist -- she took the time to sit down, really look at pictures and ideas, and take notes on what flowers I liked and the details of our wedding and wedding party. Closer to the actual wedding, we sat down again and went through everything -- in the interim, she was incredibly responsive on email and willing to accommodate any request. She was especially helpful with ceremony decoration -- had some great ideas and listened to my main request which was to repurpose what we used during the ceremony for the reception. She and her team are SO wonderful, and the flowers were beautiful. Customer service is extremely important to them, and it really made a difference!

Phyllis and her team at the Enchanted Florist did an amazing job with my wedding, from the ceremony to the reception flowers. From the time of our initial consultation, Phyllis really listened to the vision that I had for my wedding. Throughout the planning process, she was receptive to changes and suggestions. At the end, she executed on my concept in a way that exceeded all my expectations. The design was sleek and modern and perfectly set the mood for the evening.

I want to convey my sincere (although much belated!) gratitude to the staff at The Enchanted Florist for creating a beautiful landscape of flowers at my April 2012 wedding!

We first contacted The Enchanted Florist at the recommendation of a friend who described the flowers as her favorite part of the wedding. After seeing the amazing floral designs that The Enchanted Florist created I would definitely agree! I was first impressed with the professionalism and enthusiasm. My husband and I were married the day before Easter 2012--a very busy weekend for any florist. However we never felt as though The Enchanted Florist had any other customers to worry about. Natalie Kappel was a pleasure to work with. When I realized I forgot to order flowers for my MOH's hair only 2 days before the wedding she not only made it happen without any issue--she even comped the flowers!

In addition to the gorgeous centerpieces that exceeded our expectations, Natalie created 5 beautiful cherry blossom pieces, and aisle decor that created a dreamy romantic backdrop for our vows. She accommodated every wish that I had for my bouquet--incorporating lace and an antique handkerchief from my family. The flowers looked absolutely stunning in photographs and held up very well in our floral artwork that we ultimately had created.

Thank you Natalie and all of the staff at The Enchanted Florist for making such beautiful arrangements that provided a gorgeous backdrop to our wedding.

I would recommend Natalie at the Enchanted Florist without hesitation - from the first conversation I had with her I knew she understood what I wanted and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. I love flowers and floral design so flowers were a very important element of my wedding - I knew I wanted to work with someone who would make them truly special and sophisticated and Natalie was able to do that. She was also incredibly patient and flexible - I wanted to re-purpose a number of the arrangements used during the ceremony later for the reception and this was totally fine with her. I also wanted to use family glass and silver pieces as vessels for some of the arrangements which I'm sure was more difficult than just using the vases in their stock, but Natalie loved the idea and was enthusiastic and using them. If you want truly special, beautifully arranged flowers for your wedding you can't go wrong with the Enchanted Florist.

My contact person at Enchanted Florist was Melissa Worrilow and she was fantastic. She made it really easy to meet with her and she was super professional and personable. I am a total worry-wart and type-A, and was really worried about the idea that I have to tell someone what I want for a wedding that is a year away and I would not get to see the finished product until the day of the wedding, when it is too late to change anything. Melissa got my vision from the beginning and made me feel comfortable and absolutely relaxed about the whole process. She was extremely flexible when I had changed some things almost at the last minute. The team created the most beautiful centerpieces and my bouquet was fantastic (I really did not want to throw it, it was too pretty to part with, but I threw it and a friend caught it). Enchanted Florist was well worth the money and did an impeccable job!

I'm so glad it came together in the end because everything came out so beautiful and perfect. They really created everything I wanted to perfection and made the process seem so easy. Melissa was so fun and easy to work with! I loved going over all of the decor ideas with her and she was always so flexible with whatever I wanted or needed (last minute!).

The Enchanted Florist is such a wonderful florist shop and I highly recommend them for your big day!!!

Unbelievable flowers and service.

For being a successful florist outside of DC their prices were reasonable and the service and attention was outstanding. Melissa was out for her own wedding just a week before mine and only returned to work a few days before mine. Phyllis stepped up and made the finishing touches on my last minute ideas and order.

My cake flowers were ordered at the very last minute and I wasn't sure what to expect...it turned out amazing! My bouquet was heavenly and my nieces flower baskets were lovely.

I wish I could surround myself by the beautiful arrangements this florist makes everyday!

Thanks for a great job ladies. You truly tied the ribbon on my dream wedding with your work!

Beyond that, Melissa was so patient and easy to work with - I had a LOT of questions, and she worked with me to find a way to get the flowers we wanted within what we wanted to spend.

Thank you!!!

My husband and I were lured into the Enchanted Florist by their beautiful windows on a rainy Saturday. We were greeted and became fast friends with Gina and their whole team. They were the first vendor we booked (even before our venue) and it was such a fun process to work with them the whole way through. Planning the flowers for our wedding was one of the aspects that I looked forward to the most- and on the day of, our flowers were amazing- more than we ever could have hoped for. Enchanted Florist really made our wedding decor- the wreaths, the tiny floral decor, the bouquets, everything was breathtaking. They really understood our aesthetic, and we really enjoyed trusting their talents, and letting them do what they do best.

I'd love to relive the flowers from our wedding day over and over. The Enchanted Florist is fantastic- great people, reasonable price, and great talent.

With fear and trepidation, I entered the realm of flowers to create a wedding day for my daughter that would meet not only her incredibly high expectations but engender a calm within me as flowers are not my forte. I interviewed several companies and consistently came back to the Enchanted Florist as the company that provided me with my two strongest criteria. Not only was my daughter, who was living in Atlanta, impressed and comfortable with the email exchanges, phone calls and meetings, I never felt forgotten throughout the entire process. In fact, my inquiries and requests were greeted with enthusiasm, delight and dedicated professionalism. On site meetings, meetings at the rental company and meetings at the event venue were a joy and Phyllis Kennedy and her staff kept me truly excited about the preparations for this very important event. Even when I called ten days before the wedding and asked for what could have been an impossible request, they stood at the ready and bailed me out one more time.
I can only say that my experience with them was truly "enchanting" and I can not recommend them more highly.

This could not have been an easier experience for me. I had originally booked another vendor to do all of our ceremony decorations and flowers, but due to their unresponsiveness and a couple of design changes I was looking for a new Flower vendor 2 months before our wedding. I found Enchanted Florist doing a quick search on Wedding Wire and it was the best choice I made. Melissa worked with me through email and on the phone to ensure that she understood what I was looking for in our decor. She was able to work around my schedule and the flowers could not have turned out more perfect, plus they were able to do it at a lower cost then my first vendor. I would recommend Enchanted Florist and specifically Melissa to anyone and would plan on using them again for any other floral needs.

No need for brides to look any further than Enchanted Florist. I have hosted a number of events throughout the US and clearly Enchanted is at the top of my list. These creative pros know flowers and produced grogeous arrangements that beautifully complimented fine linens and custom menus. I am a tabletop fanatic and very detailed oriented. With fairly short notice and little guidance from me, Natalie breezed in with unique arrangements that filled the room and were absolute show stoppers! No matter what your budget is, I am confident that Phyllis and Natalie can make your day!

Hi! My partner and I got married in June. We went all out with an event at the W for 140 of our closest friends. When we were choosing florist we entered it with a very specific idea in mind with a very clear understanding that you get what you pay for. We choose the Enchanted Florist to do our flowers and could not have been happier. We brought them our idea and they made it better (way better) we brought them our budget and they respected it and as for you get what you pay for…..we got more then we paid for. You can’t pay enough for this level of service and attention. We hope you enjoy the experience as much as we did. CJC

Enchanted Florist turned my modest budget into the most amazing bouquets and table arrangements! I very much appreciated how they immediately understood the look and feel we wanted for our wedding and how they were able to share in our excitement. When they asked to make certain changes based on their professional judgement, there was no question that they had our goals and best interests in mind. I will turn to them again the next time I need flowers.

The Enchanted Florist provided me with amazing flowers on my wedding day and was by far the best wedding vendor I had. The flowers were truly stunning -- everyone admired them. More importantly, Phyllis and her staff were wonderful throughout the planning process. Phyllis was so helpful in helping me articulate the look that I wanted, and she spent a lot of time trying to understand my vision.
I interviewed serveral florists in the area, and not one matched the level of personal service that did the Enchanted Florist. In addition, Phyllis provided tremendous value for my flowers, as it was clear that she gave me very competitive pricing when compared to other florists. No other "premiere" florist (like Amarylis) in the area can hold a candle to the Enchanted Florist when it comes to the personal touches. Phyllis or staff would respond almost immediately to any questions or issues I had during the proposal and planning stages, until just days before the wedding. Their work speaks for itself, but I definitely felt all the more confident that the staff seemed to care about my special day.

I really could not have been happier with the arrangements and bouquets designed by the ladies at The Enchanted Florist. I met with Phyllis Kennedy, the shop owner, several months before the wedding to talk about ideas and give her the information she would need to prepare a bid. I never had specific pictures of what I wanted, only random pictures of flowers and ideas in my head. Phyllis was wonderful at fleshing out the ideas and expanding on them. She really listened and took note of things I liked and didn't like. She was great about suggesting beautiful flowers that I hadn't considered, but that would be less expensive than some exotic varieties. She was totally receptive to my ideas about re-using bridesmaids bouquets and pew flowers again on the tables at the reception, which allowed me to do more with my budget. I got a bid from one other florist in DC - Amaryllis - making all the same requests (to compare apples to apples,) and the bid from The Enchanted Florist was less than a third of their bid. You will definitely get great value with The Enchanted Florist.

I worked with Gina and Phyllis and took them one photo of a bouquet I saw on line. They were able to make exactly the bouquet I wanted, and provided bridesmaid bouquets, a mother of the groom bouquet, flower girl pom and boutinnieres that were absolutely perfect. I knew it would be hard to find lily of the valley flowers but I really wanted them and Phyllis told me not to worry, she would guarantee the flowers and sure enough, she found them without charging me any extra. I was extremely pleased with this business and would highly recommend them. Competitive rates and great creative designs.

I would highly recommend The Enchanted Florist. I met with three florists, and Phyllis (the 3rd one) just understood the whole theme of my wedding. The visions dancing around in her head were the same as the ones in mine. She provided gorgeous altar pieces, centerpieces, bouquets and boutinneires. The flower fell off of the corsages unfortunately, but Phyllis promptly reimbursed us the cost of the corsages. She was very willing to work inside my budget and made it work and it still looked absolutely amazing. Great job, I highly recommend The Enchated Florist!!

The Enchanted Florist provided exquisitely beautiful flowers for our wedding - we changed our flower preferences several times in the planning stages and Phyllis and her staff were responsive and helpful every time. Our wedding was in a garden, and I never thought a florist could compete with the flowers in bloom that day, but The Enchanted Florist managed to match the natural beauty of our surroundings in the arrangements they created for us. I still haven't seen a bridal bouquet that I love as much as the one I carried on my wedding day - it was gorgeous!

When my family and friends would ask me what detail I was most excited to see at my wedding, I always said: the flowers. I spent the past few months just dreaming about them. I knew Phyllis and her team would do a wonderful job -- but the Enchanted Florist ended up exceeding my expectations by miles and miles. Our flowers were GORGEOUS!!!! I had a pretty clear "vision" of what I wanted: brightly-colored flowers arranged in antique bud vases that I sourced. I truly appreciated Phyllis' enthusiasm and flexibility in making my vision come to life (and she was even able to find some flowers that we originally thought were out-of-season). The bouquets, centerpieces, everything was so thoughtfully put together. Phyllis' team was professional, responsive, and easy to work with. I 110% recommend hiring them as your florist.

The flowers were an important part of my Wedding decoration, since my mother adored flowers and it was the way to celebrate her. I also had a clear idea of what I wanted and since the colors (mainly off white with a touch of lavender) were rather pale, the quality of the flowers were my priority, as well as staying within my budget, using as many Ecuadorian flowers as possible (my husband’s country). This was rather difficult until I met Natalie at The Enchanted Florist, she quickly understood what I wanted and with great knowledge and enthusiasm helped me to design the perfect bouquet and great centerpieces with great price!
The day of my Wedding I was happily surprise with a gorgeous bouquet. And although the centerpieces were not exactly what was written in the contract, to be more precise, Rannunculus were missing (which she lately explained to me that they weren't looking so hot) replaced by fluffy small off pink (instead of only off white) spray roses. I know this might sound chaotic, but actually they looked great, and gave more warmth do the whole room, that otherwise, would have created a colder atmosphere.
Lastly, I asked last minute for some flowers to decorate the cake and they not only deliver them perfectly but there complimentary!

I was very happy with the work done by The Enchanted Florist for my wedding last month. I had a great time working with Phyllis because she is fun, enthusiastic, and really listened to what I wanted for my wedding. The centerpieces and bouquets they created were beautiful. They also decorated a chuppah for our ceremony, which was absolutely gorgeous. I was concerned because we had our ceremony in a hotel, which I didn't feel was a pretty ceremony location, but when I walked down the aisle, I felt like I was in a fairy tale land, which is exactly what I wanted. The decor was perfect. I would highly recommend The Enchanted Florist for wedding flowers/decor.

The flowers they provided were absolutely beautiful and perfected coordinated with the federal decor of the Lloyd House. The burgundy flowers even coordinated with the prosaic upholstered chairs that come with the house. Every one complimented the flowers. I chose Enchanted Florist because they understood what I wanted in their proposal, they had done flowers for Lloyd House before and they were affordable.

The Enchanted Florist did a fabulous job for our wedding. Melissa was great to work with and was always very responsive and able to chat about various options, including ways to maximize value. Melissa was particularly great because I really didn't have any sort of vision or ideal in mind. I gave her very broad concepts and color themes to work within, and she took it and really made it work. Our bouquets were beautiful, and the table arrangements were also great. Perhaps most importantly, the flowers looked like the vague ideas I had in mind and attempted to convey to Melissa. I definitely recommend working with Melissa and Enchanted Florist, and I look forward to going back for other flowers in the future.

Phyllis at Enchanted Florist is truly amazing. The first time I sat down with her to discuss the flowers for our wedding, she completely impressed me. She really got to know me as a person, as well as our vision/ style for the wedding. On a later date, my mother and father sat down with her as well. They were unsure about the expense, but after meeting with her we all agreed that we completely trusted her to do a great job. On our wedding day, the flowers exceeded our expectations-- they were so beautiful, and unique. Now, looking back through photos from the wedding day, our church and reception hall were both so complimented by her vision. Flowers were a bigger chunk of our budget, and The Enchanted Florist was completely worth it.

Enchanted Florist were the easiest vendors to work with, from the first email/phone call, to picking up the flowers. We had a tiny wedding, so didn't have the need to place a large order, but that gave us the flexibility to choose higher quality flowers. They were able to accomodate us with only two weeks notice, and when we met in person, were able to figure out which flowers I had envisioned. I didn't know the name of the flower -could only describe it - turned out to be callalilies. I was especially pleased that they were flexible and willing to help me turn the vision into a reality. In my culture, brides traditionally wear jasmine flowers strung together into long garlands in their hair. Jasmine wasn't available, but Natalie quickly came up with an alternative, winding gold string around the stems of some white petals so it could hang down my hair in strings. It came out beautifully.

Only one caveat - callalillies don't make good boutannieres. Although the prices are above average, I would highly recommend Enchanted Florist for its flexibility, knowledge and service.

We had The Enchanted florist do our floces flower arrangements and center pieces for my wedding this past weekend. Our boquets and the mens boutonniere's were absolutely beautiful! They did a wonderful job on those as well as the center pieces. I also had her pomander balls for the isle chairs, but unfortunately I wasnt that pleased with them. We paid good money to have them done, just to have a flower and leave stuck inside. Overall they did a wonderful job and would highly reccommend them.

The flowers were beautiful and different than your average every day looking wedding flowers. They have a definate modern look. The price I gave 3 stars because it is a bit more expensive but average within alexandria. I would definately go back. My flowers were by far the most beautiful i have ever seen.

I was satisfied with the flowers they provided in the end but I had a difficult working experience with them. They had a hard time understanding what I was looking for - despite being able to verbalize it back to me after I explained - as was evident in the trial. In the end, I had to send them photos of exactly what I wanted (for them to copy) bc I didnt have enough faith that they would "get it" and the flowers did not end up looking as good as the magazine photos. I would imagine that is a much higher skill level so I get it. Anyway, the flowers were very expensive, more than I really wanted to pay, but I felt talked into by the planner and the florist. If possible, go find someone who grows their own flowers so doesnt have the overhead of the shop (like E.F.) that you end up paying for...

The Enchanted Florist responded with the following comments:

I do feel the need to respond to this review, however, I trust that most readers of it will read it and actually wonder … what???

It is very difficult to understand why she had a difficult experience working with us – from the first (and only) meeting, when she was here from out of the country, we bent over backwards to accommodate her. In an effort to show her what we felt she wanted, we offered to show up the next day at the equipment company and bring possible containers that could provide the look she wanted. Not only did we do that, but we threw together flowers that would give a sense of what her colors would look like on the linens and in these containers. The flowers were not purchased for this purpose, rather we gathered whatever we could, including flowers returning after a week on our accounts, just as a courtesy, to illustrate color and texture. So her mention of the “trial” flowers is really out of order, and suggests that she doesn’t understand the extra effort that was made.

Following that meeting, many things changed over time – including a major element of her look, and the linens themselves. Furthermore, we did not have any contact with her for some time, as she had returned to Europe, did not communicate with us, and in the process was making changes.

Almost all of her communication was done thru her wedding planner and not directly with us. This might have been part of why she felt that we might not “get it”. Once we had some direct communication, I feel that we quickly ascertained exactly what she wanted. It is of utmost importance that we understand what our client wants, and based on our reviews, I think we do a good job of that. Given the changes and lack of contact, perhaps we did question things, but only to be sure that we had the current vision in mind.

On the topic of finding someone who grows their own flowers … given her look and the color scheme, I don’t think that would have been possible for her October wedding, especially in the Washington area.

I honestly believe that we provided exactly what was asked for, and that her flowers were beautiful. As far as expensive or not … we, ourselves have the choice of how we spend our money, and with whom. We most certainly did not “talk” her into anything at all. And for all the talk of “talk”, it would have been nice to hear directly from this client, rather than just read a very harsh, and I believe, unfair and inaccurate review.

I actually had just written a lengthy review for this vendor, but for some reason, it didn't go through.

I'll keep it short and to the point this time:

Pros: Great quality flowers, beautiful arrangements, pleasant staff

Cons: lack of creativity in design, unresponsiveness (delays in email response between 2-4 weeks at times), less than friendly/involved owner

Our consultant was Melissa, an associate of the owner's (whom we never officially met although she came into the room at one point to grab something). Melissa was pleasant to work with, but didn't quite understand a more creative vision for the wedding, and also seemed entirely too busy to really pay attention to our wedding. I wish I could have offered a better review since I had high hopes for this cute shop in Old Town Alexandria, but unfortunately, wasn't satisfied with my experience.

The staff were very professional, kind, and caring, and the flowers arrived on time. However, we were utterly disappointed with what we got for the price. The bouquets were incredibly small and did not meet our expectations, despite a pre-wedding consultation where we provided pictures of what we were looking for. Definitely felt let down.

The Enchanted Florist responded with the following comments:

Oh my. When I read this I was so surprised. While October is some time ago, my recollection was that we had rave reviews from all our October weddings, and in fact we did, October of 2013 that is. In researching this, I realized this was from 2012!!
I was able to find the order, and recall it was a very small order with a few personals. However we do our very best to create beautiful flowers, no matter the price and I am sure that we did just that for her.
