I couldn't have been happier with Stephanie at Wisteria. I had a vision of what I wanted for my wedding flowers, but also knew that I wasn't the professional and needed Stephanie's input. She was creative, responsive and professional; my flowers were one of the highlights of my wedding. The table decorations, including the unusual and eye-catching decoration on the table with the placecards, were perfect and beyond anything I could have imagined. Stephanie was very specific about the flower containers--which needed to be returned to her and which were mine to keep. I highly recommend Wisteria for all your floral needs.

We were very happy with the flowers Stephanie provided for the wedding. However, we found Stephanie to be difficult to work with. It was hard to get her to respond to phone calls and emails. In addition, she did not communicate clearly her policy of wanting the vases returned
and in fact, charged us when we did not return all the vases.

We initially met with her in December 2013 (off the preferred vendor list) for our July 2014 nuptials; she was one of our first vendor meetings (we did not yet have a coordinator). Upon our initial consultation, you could really tell that she knew what she was talking about – guiding novices around the entire process. She made great recommendations off our ideal look and provided a thorough proposal (delivered by mail).

Once we hired our wedding coordinator, the coordinator reviewed said proposal and recommended that we schedule another meeting to ensure a cohesive look. We, our coordinator, and Stephanie met in early June to review the venue floor plan, overall design, and timeline. What started as a regular review of the proposal went very poorly once we began discussing design. Stephanie was not very appreciative of our amendments (making four medium-sized arrangements into three smaller ones) and very hesitant of agreeing to our first look (strongly insinuating that our flowers will die if we had one). The coordinator had to push for both the new aesthetic and the timeline – which made us feel incredibly uncomfortable. In addition, Stephanie charged us a wait fee that was never stipulated prior just so that we could have our flowers for the first look. It was a very agitating and disappointing meeting; it was not a pleasant experience and one we were expecting with our florist.

In regards to the product, we LOVED the bridal bouquet and the attendant’s flowers. We felt
underwhelmed by the table flowers and the birch tree alter. Most of all, we felt far more let down by the inflexibility of (and added wait fee for) Stephanie. It really put a damper on our final days of planning, adding unnecessary stress to an already-stressful day.

If you are planning your wedding without additional assistance, Stephanie is great at providing the flowers she wants. If you have a wedding planner or coordinator we would strongly suggest that you do not use Stephanie.

I highly recommend Wisteria and Stephanie for your wedding flowers. From the start I felt that Stephanie could see our vision and was excited about making it a reality. My husband's grandmother collected bud vases and we had decided to use them as our centerpieces for the reception as a way of having her there with us in spirit. Two of the other florists that I had initially met with wouldn't do it for us and either turned us away or tried to sell us on their own ideas. From the very first meeting, we could tell that Stephanie could appreciate what we wanted to do and wanted to help make this happen for us. And as a bonus, she is super down to earth and easy to talk to! Stephanie helped us pick which bud vases we should use as a part of each arrangement (each table was unique) and then gave us suggestions on how to pull the arrangements together by using some other items in our centerpieces. We couldn't have been happier with how it turned out that day! If you are looking for someone that can make the ideas in your head come alive at your wedding, look no further!

I had six weeks to plan my wedding so my planning had to be stress-free! An Old Town florist recommended that I contact Wisteria. After looking at the wedding bouquets on their website, I contacted the owner, Stephanie, and was thrilled when she replied that she could help me out! We met the next day at her studio to do the consultation. It was very calm, relaxing, and quiet in her studio so I had no problem explaining what I wanted. During the consultation she was very thoughtful and detailed, asking all the right questions from the style of my dress to how my hair looked to what the groom would be wearing, etc. I didn't have any special flowers in mind except to incorporate magnolia leaves and to use variations of greens and whites. She made recommendations based on what flowers were in season and the flowers that would hold up best during the ceremony and reception. I also needed flowers for bridesmaids, groomsmen, and the mothers. Stephanie also helped with suggesting arrangements for the ceremony and reception. Her price point for the wedding party flowers, floral arrangements, and rentals for the pedestals and vases was very reasonable. Since her studio was located so close to our wedding venue, she also helped me save money by allowing me to make arrangements to pick up the flowers. On our wedding day the flowers turned out be absolutely gorgeous!! I loved my wedding bouquet with its smaller sized magnolia leaves and beautiful variations of greens and whites. My bouquet wasn't overly done and didn't overpower me or my dress. The wedding party just looked classic and beautiful.

Thank you Wisteria and Stephanie for helping to make my wedding planning stress-free, and especially making my wedding day a truly memorable day!

I chose Wisteria based on a recommendation from a florist in Old Town, Alexandria. I sent Stephanie (owner) the details of my wedding and a hint of what I was looking for (something not very detailed…more or less along the lines of “Have you worked with thistles before? We are having a Scottish themed wedding”). Stephanie immediately wrote me back and we scheduled a face to face meeting in her shop. Upon meeting, I was instantaneously impressed with her style and her lively personality. Admittedly—I know nothing about flowers (and was a hands-off bride). We had no “wedding colors” (since the men were in kilts and the women in black), we didn’t research (or comb through Pinterest) for a “look”, we went in knowing we really wanted the flowers to be unique and emit a certain kind of energy. I showed her a picture of my wedding dress, gave her a rough idea of what we wanted to spend, and she took it from there. She NAILED it! All the centerpieces & station pieces really took on a life of their own (note: our reception was in the Torpedo Arts Factory). Each one was unique in its own way yet tied to the central color and thistle theme she created. Stephanie is truly an artist. It was so nice to have a simple conversation with a vendor and leave it in their hands. I cannot be happier with the floral arrangements at my wedding and would recommend Wisteria 100% to anyone for weddings & special events.

Wisteria provided beautiful flowers for our ceremony and reception. Stephanie and her team were extremely professional, timely and accommodating. I do not know the first thing about flowers and Stephanie walked through my options. She gave ideas based on what was in season and the colors of the bridesmaids dresses. I put complete faith in her and was very pleased. She also worked within the budget I gave her. Amazing! Can't wait to use Wisteria again!

It's been almost a year since our wedding (2/16/2013), but I finally am sitting down to review our vendors. Stephanie with Wisteria Florals is an amazing florist and wonderful person to work with. She listened to all of our ideas (my mom had a lot), and incorporated them plus her own into our gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception flowers and decor. She walked me through all the the things that I needed to think about, which I really appreciated since I wasn't familiar with all the details. She worked within our budget and warned us about certain flowers that were going to be more expensive that weekend due to Valentine's day. She was just super friendly and knowledgable. I knew as soon as I walked into her adorable studio that I had picked the right florist. She nailed it, and I credit the overall feel of the wedding to her; romantic and elegant winter wedding. Looking back at all the pictures, it's clear that the wedding wouldn't have been the same or had the same aura if it weren't for the beautiful flowers. I wish I could post pictures!

Wisteria is a fabulous florist, which works with you to ensure that your experience and floral arrangements are fitting to your personal style and your weddings overall theme. The flower arrangements and bouquets were absolutely stunning. Wisteria made sure all the flowers were beautiful and better then I could have imagined or created myself. They took my ideas, thoughts, and dreams and made them into an wonderfully creative reality. I could not have been more pleased with their services and the final product.

Wisteria Florals was an absolute pleasure to work with for my wedding and wedding guest flowers. I had a wonderful experience working with Stephanie over the course of several months to plan my wedding flowers, for the ceremony at the Church at which I was married, our reception venue, and for flowers for my immediate family members/parents. She took great care to coordinate personal flowers and reception and ceremony flowers with my dress, the bridesmaid dresses, and corsages for the groom and Mothers. She is very knowledgeable about area ceremony and reception venues and also makes sure that the flowers and arrangements she provides are in compliance with any restrictions, as well as appropriate for the occasion and theme. I absolutely loved my personal bouquet, and the bridesmaids bouquets, and I received many compliments on them from my guests. They looked absolutely beautiful and creative, and included unsual varieties. They just looked amazing and they really popped in our pictures. Wisteria's work is amazing. I also received many compliments from my parents/immediate families regarding the arrangements I ordered from Wisteria for these guests' arrival at our hotel. They loved their arrangements and were amazed at the uniqueness and the color combinations of them. I highly recommend Wisteria to anyone who is looking for beautiful wedding flowers or flowers for any occasion, as Wisteria will tailor it's amazing work to fit your needs and budget.
