Couldn't recommend my florist more highly. John is fantastic. He takes your vision, makes a couple of suggestions, and then comes the wedding and it's even better than what you were expecting. He really listens and he works with your budget to make it both beautiful and feasible. Definitely recommend him!

I was married last week and I can't tell you how thrilled we were with the floral designs from Yellow Door. John Duffy worked tirelessly to ensure my vision came to realty - from the ceremony to the cocktail reception to the dinner reception. He was also very flexible in helping us stay within budget and answered my countless number of questions with patience. We went to several other florists before selecting Yellow Door and we were impressed how he showed us the different vases and really took the time to listen. You will not regret selecting Yellow Door as your florist!

John was very professional and extremely organized from the moment we had our consultation. He had great examples and great advice - so much so that we hardly changed anything from our initial consult to the day-of. He understood what we wanted and made sure it was executed perfectly. From the corsages to the bouquets to the centerpieces, we couldn't have asked for more beautiful flowers. We even kept a few after the wedding and they lasted at least a week (talk about fresh!). We highly recommend Yellow Door without hesitation to our closest family and friends.

I was completely satisfied with the process, and end result, of flowers from Yellow Door. I only needed personal flowers, including bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and a flower halo, and felt that John Duffy took my order seriously even though it was a smaller job. He was communicative, prompt, and made adjustments to accommodate my budget. I didn’t have especially strong preferences about the flowers, but did come in with some inspiration photos, and John helped understand what I would like by asking excellent questions. My mother-in-law and many guests were impressed with the flowers.

Yellow Door did an amazing job on my wedding in October! The quality of the flowers was truly top notch - and the price was so reasonable. John took the time in our consultation to really learn the flowers I liked and didn't, and asked all of the right questions to make me feel like we were on the same page with the look and feel of the design for the ceremony and reception. The large arrangments to fill the church and the restaurant were absolutely BEAUTIFUL. He was both timely and responsive to all of my concerns and made adjustments as needed approaching my big day. I couldn't have been happier with my wedding florals!

This is the second wedding where we have used Yellow Door Floral and once again we were completely pleased and satisfied. John is easy to work with, listened to what my daughter wanted and then delivered flowers that were even more beautiful than we envisioned. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful the flowers looked!! The bridal bouquet was spectacular.

Our flowers were beautiful. John was very easy to work with, and I really appreciated the process that he used in helping us to decide what worked for our wedding. I didn't really have strong feelings about flowers -- and my husband had no feelings whatsoever -- but John asked great questions and helped educate me. We also really liked being able to get a sense of table arrangements at his home office, actually sitting at a table and viewing some options for vases, etc. We ultimately ended up with centerpieces that were unique and varied, but not obtrusive, and all of the wedding party flowers were gorgeous.

Yellow Door's prices were competitive, and I'd recommend them to anyone in need.

We worked with three flower vendors - Yellow Door Floral Designs, Da Vinci’s Florist and GreenWorks, before selecting Yellow Door to handle our wedding floral arrangements.

John Duffy from Yellow Door was wonderful to work with. His work is simply beautiful and value unmatched. He listened to our ideas, made suggestions and ultimately put together a stunning array of arrangements. Our guests raved about the designs and beauty of all the arrangements, and we could not have been more pleased. We highly recommend Yellow Door Floral Designs, for all your floral needs.

The floral arrangements at my wedding by John Duffy of Yellow Door Floral Designs were superb. I can’t begin to write about just how amazing the flowers were. From the floral arch under which my husband and I said our vows, to the spectacular focal point in the entry area, to the variety of floral arrangements in each room that adorned the café tables, to the floral bouquets that greeted guests as they chose their seats, to the bouquets carried by the bridesmaids, to the single orchids worn by the groom, and to the extra thoughtful touches of flowers for the godmothers – all were truly spectacular! I have a number of friends that I consider flower snobs when it comes to using flowers in exactly the correct way such that they make the ultimate statement. These friends all wanted contact information John Duffy. Lastly, and possibly most significantly, I must mention my cascading bridal bouquet of fuchsia phalaenopsis orchids. Truly breathtaking!!! My mother and I knew we were in good hands with Yellow Door Floral Designs from our first meeting with John Duffy when we saw his portfolio. It was extremely important to us that we work with someone who would actually listen to our thoughts about the look we wanted to create. John listened to and delivered on everything we said about our signature look. We are so very pleased that chose Yellow Door Floral Designs!

John Duffy and Yellow Door Floral Designs were extremely easy to work with and really wanted my wedding flowers to reflect my tastes and style. Our initial consult was over an hour long and he helped me pick out flower styles I liked that were in season for my wedding. He typed up a well written proposal explaining all of the details of the specific designs and sent them via email. As the wedding date approached, he didn't give me a hard time when I wanted subtle differences in the designs or colors. He and his crew delivered the flowers on time to our church and venue and everything looked better than I imagined! Definitely made my life easier during planning. Thanks John!

THE FLOWERS BY JOHN DUFFY AT YELLOW DOOR BLEW US AWAY. His vision was spot on and our wedding flowers greatly enhanced the room. My bridal bouquet was gorgeous as were my bridesmaids. He was smart at being cost effective by using centerpieces during the ceremony as aisle runners on columns. Each table had a different centerpiece and they were each unique and absolutely gorgeous. He knew the venue space well. He was patient while I figured out what I wanted. I loved the boutonnieres. The chuppah matched the room perfectly. I was extremely happy with Yellow Door.

It was a pleasure working with John at Yellow Door. I was overwhelmed by colors and choices and he really was able to help guide me through the process. He was quick to respond to e-mails and adjust the proposal as necessary. He was not overwhelmed at all when I wanted to change the colors about a month away. He was very flexible! The bouquets, bouts, and centerpieces were beautiful! He also was able to create the simple, but beautiful chuppah that we wanted without much guidance from us. I was blown away with how perfect it was because it clearly demonstrated how he listened to what we wanted! His prices were very reasonable and he took the little input I gave him and created something beautiful.

We were very pleased with John Duffy and Yellow Door Floral and the work that he did at our DC wedding. I shopped around a lot for florists and met with Sidra Forman, Growing Wild Floral, and Petal's Edge Floral Design but ultimately went with John because of his professionalism, quality of product and frankly his incredible affordable prices. In fact we ultimately spent about $2,000 less than we had budgeted for all of our flowers. [Sidenote: if we had the money, I would have hired Sidra in a second -- her work is outstanding]

I went out to John's home where he runs his business and he was very professional and seemed to understand what I was envisioning while also inserting his own ideas (I don't know much about flowers). He promptly delivered the most detailed and precise quote that I had seen from any florist and we decided to go with him. He was open to some last minute changes as we had dropped one table and decided to go with a different arrangement for the escort card table. On our wedding day he made his deliveries on time (including a stop at the hotel with the bouquets and bouts), did a great job setting up and all of the arrangements, most importantly for me the personal flowers and arrangements were exactly what we had discussed and looked gorgeous throughout the night.

I went out to John's home where he runs his business and he was very professional and seemed to understand what I was envisioning while also inserting his own ideas (I don't know much about flowers). He promptly delivered the most detailed and precise quote that I had seen from any florist and we decided to go with him. He was open to some last minute changes as we had dropped one table and decided to go with a different arrangement for the escort card table. On our wedding day he made his deliveries on time (including a stop at the hotel with the bouquets and bouts), did a great job setting up and all of the arrangements, most importantly for me the personal flowers and arrangements were exactly what we had discussed and looked gorgeous throughout the night.

We used Yellow Door Floral Designs after a friend referred us. Our contact was John Duffy and he was phenomenal. I had an idea of what I wanted for florals and John really helped us figure out what was right for the season and what florals looked good together. He gave us all the details we needed for the big day and was very flexible as we made changes to the floral order. What I loved most was that John provided us with a centerpiece when we went for our tasting at the reception. It gave me a chance to see the florals and I was in love. John made it all happen and was responsive. He wasn't afraid to offer other suggestions or advice and I appreciated it because he is the professional and knows best. The cost was super reasonable and we stayed within our budget. Yellow Door will help you achieve your budget as long as you're willing to make changes. Again, I would recommend Yellow Door hands down.

John Duffy of Yellow Door Floral was extremely responsive and professional and provided the most beautiful flowers for our son's rehearsal dinner. Of the 3 florists I contacted, his was the best price. The entire process of dealing with him was just flawless, and we received many compliments on the gorgeous floral centerpieces. I would highly recommend John and his company for beautiful flowers, excellent value and easiness of the whole process.

Our flowers for the wedding were magnificant! Mokara orchids submerged in cylindrical vases with candlelight on the top and high arrangements with a beautiful variety of flowers. I especially liked the fact that John was open to idea of having 4 different flower arrangements spread out over the 16 guest tables that we had.
As our guests moved around the dining room after dinner, everyone commented that they loved looking at the different arrangements. My bouquet was gorgeous as was my bridesmaids. The white flowers on the wedding cake looked like a million bucks! The finishing touch for our guests was a lovely arrangement in the ladies room. John thinks of everything! And his prices are very competitive. He's the best!

John was fantastic, especially with only a couple of week's notice for the event. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on centerpieces, and I wanted a fairly small and simple bouquet. He was the only florist I spoke to who actually *listened* to me and came up with a proposal that included a viable alternative to the more expensive traditional centerpieces: He suggested floating gerbera daisies in bowls of water filled with glass stones. It was lovely -- pretty, unobtrusive, and inexpensive. He also personally delivered the flowers during a torrential hurricane-like rain storm (I sat in my car watching him run in and out of the venue getting soaking wet, as I waited for the rain to calm down a little before going out there.) It's been a year and I never thanked him personally, so if you are reading this, John, thank you!

John Duffy at Yellow Door provided the most beautiful floral arrangements for our wedding at the Fairmont in D.C. I know my descriptions of “all white” and “classic” didn’t give him a whole lot to work with, but he was able to take my limited vision and transform it into something greater than I could’ve ever imagined. The centerpieces were beautiful and I absolutely loved all of the girls' bouquets, especially mine. The table with the escort cards was amazing as well! If you are looking for elegant and classic floral arrangements, I can testify that John is the right guy for you.

AMAZING! John was very professional and so easy to work with, I could not have been happier with all of our gorgeous flowers. I basically showed him a picture of a bouquet that I loved and he recreated it perfectly. Because he was recommended by two friends who used him I completely trusted him with his designs for our centerpieces. They were beautiful and perfect. I highly recommend Yellow Door Floral Designs.

John Duffy was one of the easiest wedding vendors I had the pleasure to work with in planning our wedding day. Yellow Door is a company that he runs out of his home, so it seems that he is able to pass on the savings of lack of overhead from leasing an office to the customer.

Flowers were always something I never particularly was interested in, and I was always more concerned with maintaining my budget. John was able to create beautiful displays by asking me very specific questions about how I wanted my wedding day to feel, and he kept it well within the planned budget. He was the only florist that I spoke to that did that, so I knew he was the right choice! The flowers themselves were amazing. My bouquet was drop dead gorgeous and smelled so good. The arrangements were very fresh and went perfectly with the other wedding decor.

John Duffy and Yellow Door Floral Designs did a great job with all of the florals on my wedding day and we couldn't have asked for a better florist to execute such a beautiful presentation.

John Duffy at Yellow Door Floral is absolutely amazing. Choosing him to do the flowers for our March 2012 DC wedding was the easiest and BEST DECISION my fiance and I made throughout our planning process! We looked at several other florists and John was by far the most helpful. We came in with only a rough idea of what we wanted, and John was patient and very creative in helping us come up with the floral designs that would work for us. We wanted something modern, and he designed the most gorgeous architectural arrangements for us. My fiance and I were absolutely speechless when we saw our reception space for the first time - it looked better than anything I ever could've imagined! So many of our guests came up to us throughout the evening and said the same thing.

I should mention that the flowers were not only perfect, but also exactly within the budget that we'd given John. He was the ONLY florist out of the four that we interviewed who gave us a proposal that stuck to the budget we set out.

If you are looking for a wedding florist, look no further. John Duffy is a consummate professional and very talented at what he does. I'm positive that he'd make even the pickiest bride happy.

It was a pleasure working with John Duffy at Yellow Door. I was impressed with John from the very beginning because he had a lot of great ideas right away and seemed much more interested in the floral design than in making a sales pitch. Throughout the planning process, John was quick to respond to my emails, and he made a number of major last-minute adjustments -- including adding rehearsal dinner flowers and designing pew flowers for the church -- without any problems. John also helpfully recommended other vendors for chair covers and for floral preservation. Most importantly, the flowers themselves were beautiful! All flowers, from the bouquets to the centerpieces to everything in between, were in fantastic shape when they arrived on the wedding day and kept their color and freshness well into the following day. I would highly recommend John and Yellow Door -- you won't be disappointed!

I selected a sort of difficult color for the bridesmaids dresses, and he did a great job coordinating their bouquets with the dress color. He was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend him.

I cannot say enough good things about John Duffy. He worked with me from the first moment I met him to help me realize the exact vision I wanted for my reception. He replicated the exact centerpieces I wanted out of a magazine, he helped me choose coordinating linens, and when I changed the colors of my bridesmaid dresses, he created the perfect bouquets from the swatches and google images of the dresses that I sent him. He also created a sample centerpiece for me and was happy to tweak it when I pointed out something I didn't like. The flowers on the big day were exactly as I had envisioned them. I'd highly recommend John and his services.

Overall I was very pleased with Yellow Door and would definitely recommend them to any bride (and already have!). My reception flowers and bouquets were amazing! I really loved working with John Duffy because he was able to see the big design picture I was going for rather than just thinking about flowers. My only complaints, and they are minor, were that sometimes it took awhile to hear back from him, one of my three centerpieces was not quite like the picture I picked (but still looked neat) and the chuppa had about half the amount of flowers than what was in the proposal. But John was great about working in my budget and overall I was very happy with the floral design of our wedding!

John was amazing to work with! I met with almost 5 different florists and didn't feel like I connected with any of them. John was the last one I met and I knew right away he would be our florist. He has such great taste and was able to create floral designs that perfectly matched the look I was going for at the wedding. He created flower centerpieces for the cocktail hour, and reception as well as ceremony flowers. He made a beautiful and simple huppuh that I loved! He also provided the isle runner and ribbon ties for the linen at the cocktail hour. My bouquet was beautiful and so were my bridesmaids! The groom and his groomsmen also had very nice boutonnieres. His prices are fair and we got a lot for what we paid. John even provided vases filled with water (at no cost) for us to put the bridesmaids bouquets in at the reception. We knew that flowers were very important to us and would be a large portion of our budget, and I am so happy we spent the money to do the flowers right. They were amazing and fresh! He created one bouquet in my mothers personal vase for a credenza that was the most gorgeous arrangement I have ever seen. My mom took the flowers home with her and they lasted a long time. I was thrilled with all the flowers and definitely recommend John and Yellow Door.
John was amazing to work with! I met with almost 5 different florists and didn't feel like I connected with any of them. Read more...
John was amazing to work with! I met with almost 5 different florists and didn't feel like I connected with any of them. John was the last one I met and I knew right away he would be our florist. He has such great taste and was able to create floral designs that perfectly matched the look I was going for at the wedding. He created flower centerpieces for the cocktail hour, and reception as well as ceremony flowers. He made a beautiful and simple huppuh that I loved!

John at Yellow Door is great to work with when planning a wedding. We weren't sure what we wanted as far as color scheme, etc and he provided us with many ideas for a fall wedding that fit into our reception venue and budget. We made a number of changes throughout the year and he always accommodated with a pleasant demeanor. They did a really nice job on the floral arrangements, giving our tables some wonderful colors.

John Duffy was the epitome of professionalism from start to finish! He helped create a unique environment that was still classy but not too cookie cutter, which was exactly what we asked for. John's prices were very competitive and he included lots of special touches like our sweet bathroom arrangement free of charge. We met with John twice before the wedding and he was very responsive on email in between. Everything turned out exactly as we discussed, and we would absolutely refer John to anyone looking for a great florist in the VA/DC area.

The Yellow Door team was able to provide my wife and I with the perfect Chuppa for our blended ceremony. John was able to come up with a concept that captured some of the more traditional elements, as well as incorporating our overall vision for the ceremony. The centerpieces were fantastic, with a perfect mixture of heights, colors and looks! My wife never had anything but positive interactions with John, and we would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding.

I was blown away by the job John did on the flowers for our wedding. He exceeded all of my expectations. From the personal flowers to the ceremony/receptions flowers everything was amazing. We hit it off from the moment we had our first meeting and enjoyed the fact that he really listened to what we were looking for . We have had at least a dozen people ask who did our flowers. If Yellow Door does not do your flowers you have made a mistake.

John was the second florist we visited and we were sold. He immediately seemed to grasp the elements and qualities of what we were looking for. The floral arrangements were elegant, creative and modern. He suggested graduated rose petals along the aisle from white - pink - burgundy to go with our theme and it was spectacular. Everyone commented on the beautiful flowers - no regrets here. John listens and delivers a quality product.

Our centerpieces were spectacular! They used some unusual materials, and were something I'm not confident we could have gotten somewhere else. Yellow Door definitely has an artistic vision. The initial consultation was excellent! Lots of pictures to look at, a discussion of what styles we liked, a sample table, and different vases displayed all over. John really walked us through our vision throroughly and professionally.

The only reason I didn't give a 5-star on quality of service was because there was one big mistake -- my bouquet was wrong! I ended up carrying one of the bridesmaid bouquets instead. It wasn't a disaster or anything, but I was surprised to see a mistake in a major element like that.

Responsiveness -- I have to give a thumbs down on this. Really slow on returning emails, and it seemed that phone calls were the way to go with this vendor. Email is a lot more convenient for me for a variety of reasons, so that was difficult for me.

Aside from the responsiveness issue, John was always polite, pleasant, and accomodating. His studio is great, and he was very flexible about emailing us pictures of arrangements for us to review (we were planning the wedding from out of state, and couldn't meet with him in person except for the initial consultation).

John Duffy really listened to what I envisioned for my wedding day. He took the time to discuss different arrangments and even went through several books to get a better understanding of what I was looking for. The result of this preparation was a beautiful wedding day! Everyone raved about our unique center pieces and the chuppah was very elegant and he did all of it below our budget! I would highly recommend Yellow Door for any event.

I was extremely pleased with Yellow Door. The flowers they designed for our wedding, inlcuding a chuppah, were gorgeous. They really listened to what I was looking for (which I couldn't always describe well) and certainly delivered. I worked primarily with Bryan, who was great. He was very easy to work with, extremely creative, and was on hand to personally give me my flowers at the wedding, which was really nice - many florists would leave them hours before and run. They were also extremely reasonable on price. Highly recommended.

We were extremely happy with our flowers through Yellow Door Floral! Flowers were one of the last things on our to-do list, so we only booked Yellow Door about 2 months before the wedding, but every interaction with them was so positive. At my first meeting with John, Yellow Door's owner, he helped me figure out what we wanted by going through books of pictures and flowers and explaining different floral terms. He used his floral expertise and let me know which flowers would be available at the time of our wedding, which flowers were available in our colors, etc. He was also extremely familiar with the room we were getting married in, which was really helpful. About 3 weeks before the wedding, John traveled to the hotel we were getting married at (during rush hour!) to show us samples of the three different centerpieces we'd decided on. He prefaced the meeting by saying, "If you don't like anything, please tell me. I won't be offended." That opened up the door for us to make changes and not feel bad about it. Ultimately, John wanted to make sure we had what we wanted. We did make a few changes and on the wedding day we were SO happy. Yellow Door's team showed up on time and all of the flowers were beautiful. The centerpieces turned out gorgeous and my bridal bouquet took my breath away. The prices were extremely reasonable and we were thrilled with what we got. I definitely recommend John Duffy and Yellow Door Florals -- you won't be disappointed!

John Duffy listened to us and came up with a proposal based on what we said we liked. The reception flowers were beautiful and the bridal bouquet was perfect. His price quote was lower than others we received and he was very flexible. When we asked him if we could bring down the price of the table centerpieces, he gave us the option of filling out the bouquets with a less expensive in-season flower. Also, we contacted him last-minute about adding some additional flowers and he was very accomodating. I highly recommend Yellow Door.

We booked John Duffy's team after having been to another wedding in the family that he did floral designs for, and I can honestly say I haven't seen more beautiful reception arrangements (although I admit, I'm biased)! John was fantastic to work with, very straightforward with what we should use for the season, and for what we spent, we got an amazing value. Down to the smallest touches (a ringbearer's pillow made entirely of blooms) John's team nailed exactly what I wanted. I was asked by guests if Preston Bailey did our flowers! We were so impressed, and will only be using him in the future.

Yellow Door has been nominated so many times for DC's best, and they really are! My ceremony flowers, personal flowers, reception flowers, etc. were all beautiful. I wanted an antique look and they did such a good job creating that feel. John Duffy is amazing to work with. He let me bring in my own hat boxes to use as centerpieces and he used his creativity to make them beautiful. His website and studio are filled with pictures that are amazing. The only downside is how expensive he is, but if flowers are your "thing" to splurge on, I would definitely say go with Yellow Door.
