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.

Stephanie was great and our flowers were amazing! She was flexible about only doing the ceremony flowers since we couldn't afford for her to do the reception too but it was worth the money and she is very talented. I went into the consult with one idea but by the end I realized hers were much better and it all turned out beautiful. I even dried out my bouquet and one of the bridesmaids to keep them for longer.

Stephanie at Wisteria was a pleasure to work with. Our flowers were beautiful -- I loved how the bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces turned out.

Truth be told, flowers weren't a high priority for me in planning my wedding. I gave Stephanie a wide variety of "inspiration" photos which fortunately she was able to interpret and create a lovely plan for the flowers. She worked within our budget and was always friendly and professional in our interactions. She never pressured us.

Her team arrived on schedule for the wedding and helped pin all the boutonnieres before setting the flowers up at the reception site.

Of all the vendors I worked with, Stephanie was by far the best. She has an artistic sense that resulted in stunning arrangements and bouquets. Other vendors tried to steer me to roses for Fall flowers but Stephanie embraced my desire for really unique flowers. Everyone was blown away by the flowers....I can't wait to see how much they enance the pictures. I appreciate her eye for beauty, her ability to capture my style and make great recommendations, and her genuine interest in making my wedding as memorable as possible. I would highly recommend her to any bride.

I found Stephanie absolutely terrific to work with. Some of the florists I went to would say "yes" to anything I suggested, even though I had no idea what I was talking about! Stephanie actually guided me to making choices that would be seasonal (therefore less expensive) and more setting appropriate than what I had thought of. She understood the feel I was going for, and was able to lead me to create that in a more beautiful way than I had imagined. I really appreciated this - looking back, if we had gone with my original ideas - it would have been just okay, but instead, our wedding was decorated just perfectly!

Stephanie was very responsive both with phone, email, and personal visits - whether I just found another picture of inspiration on the internet I wanted her to see or I was worried about something. She was calm and reassuring every step of the way.

And as for the results - it was amazing. I loved my bouquet, and couldn't believe how she transformed the space, making my color choices and overall feel for the event come alive with just a few strategically placed arrangements.

One more important thing - her pricing is very reasonable. She always made sure to keep my budget in mind, and never tried to push me beyond what I was comfortable with. I was amazed at how much she could do for a very reasonable amount of money. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

One more important thing - her pricing is very reasonable. She always made sure to keep my budget in mind, and never tried to push me beyond what I was comfortable with. I was amazed at how much she could do for a very reasonable amount of money. I wholeheartedly recommend her. Read less

Working with Stephanie at Wisteria was great. My wedding was in June 2010 and my vision was an outdoor garden wedding with an indoor reception and peonies galore. Wisteria helped make that a reality with their attention to detail, professionalism and creativity. My husband and I could not have been more happy. It was gorgeous! I highly recommend Wisteria for any floral needs and especially your wedding!

Stephanie did a wonderful job on the flowers for both my wedding ceremony and my reception. The arrangements were so beautiful and really reflected the ambiance I wanted for my wedding. I loved my bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets, which were so gorgeous and lush. She was really friendly and willing to work with any changes I had with my budget and/or ideas. I would highly recommend Stephanie to any bride because she truly is an artist and fantastic to work with.

Stephanie did a great job with my flowers! I had a vision of what I wanted my flowers to look like, and Stephanie was able to bring that vision to life. She really listened to what I was looking for and made great suggestions when I wasn't sure!

My one compliant is that her studio takes awhile to get to (it's a bit off the beaten path), but her friendliness, responsiveness, and creativity definitely outweigh the minor inconvenience of the studio location!

Stephanie is a delight and a terrific artist. She worked with us to keep the costs within our budget while providing flowers and arrangements that completed the event well. I was very pleased with the work she did. The flowers on the cake were gorgeous as well. Stephanie really loves her work and it showed in the quality of the arrangements as well as her pleasant and calm demeanor.

One of the best decisions we made when choosing vendors for our daughter's recent wedding, was to go with Stephanie Melvin. Planning this event from the other side of the country could have been complicated and stressful. We had one meeting with Stephanie and from there she really took the reins and delivered a spectacular floral effort. Her product was farm fresh, sophisticated and lush. I would highly recommend Wisteria Florals for your special event.

Shortly after I approached Stephanie about the possibility of her doing flowers for my wedding (after an earlier vendor fell through) we were on the phone talking about how I envisioned the look and feel of my wedding, the colours used, favorite flowers, etc. She struck that perfect mix of friendly, approachable and highly professional, offering input based on my suggestions, and I knew I had found our florist! The resulting flowers were fresh, stylish and beautifully assembled - she is definitely one of those creative minds! I would only mention that part of the reason she is so competitively priced is due to the fact that her containers are rentals. While she spells this out clearly, it didn't quite dawn on me the amount of effort it would take, and it was a bit of a hassle getting the flowers from the venue to the hotel (we were in town only two days after the wedidng from Seattle) to my mother's house to be picked up.

Wisteria did my recent wedding and they were FABULOUS! I had the ceremony and reception at two different venues, neither with overly much time to set up, but Stephanie and her staff did a wonderful job! The bouquets and corsages and boutennieres were beautiful and my centerpieces were unique and perfect for the venue! I got lots of compliments on the flowers and I couldn't have been more happy! Many thanks!

I was a little nervous about my flowers as I didn't order them until just a few weeks before the wedding. I had a small order, and Stephanie was happy to take it. I didn't get to work with her much, but she was very calm and prepared the perfect bouquet for me. I was THRILLED when I got it! Thank you Stephanie!

Stephanie Melvin is the consummate floral artist. Her unerring eye for color and form is combined with a real ability to listen and relate to her clients. I should know -- I was overflowing with ideas, and she helped me to focus my vision. My wedding order was relatively large -- four large arrangements for the church and reception, twelve table centerpieces, 11 bouquets, 14 boutonnieres, cake flowers, assorted mantel-top arrangements, six candelabra arrangements, and some other pieces as well.

Her work is absolutely exquisite, and her standards for freshness are top-notch. Our fall wedding was breathtakingly beautiful, and romantic yet modern, all thanks to Stephanie and her gorgeous, lush, creative work.
