I cannot thank Studio DBI enough for their beautiful flowers they did for my wedding! They were picture perfect. Life has been hectic and challenging so it made planning a wedding not as a priority. I had done some research through wedding wire for florists and came across Studio DBI. Immediately after sending a request, I received an email from Liza about setting up some time to talk about what I was looking for and more so get to know me. We quickly connected and was happy that we hit it off. Within our initial phone conversation, Liza knew exactly the style of my wedding and what I was looking for. I sent her some pictures of flowers I liked and had in mind. She quickly put together a proposal and photos of various flowers that she had picked in keeping with what we discussed and what I had sent over. Liza and I kept in touch throughout the planning which was great. A week before my wedding she had emailed me to let me know that peonies may not be available as the weather has pushed back the time when they are supposed to bloom. She had suggested another type of flower which would give a similar look - I trusted her and knew that no matter what with or without peonies they would still be a beautiful arrangement.
On the day of my wedding I had the flowers arrive to the hotel where I was getting ready, Liza had arrived with her colleague to my suite to drop them off. I could not believe how gorgeous the flowers were. She surprised me with being able to get the peonies! I loved them so much! They were everything I was looking for. I would recommend Studio DBI to anyone.
Liza was so sweet and easy to work with, I was happy to have her and her team be part of my...
Liza and DBI Events are amazing! The flowers for our wedding were gorgeous and we received many, many compliments from our family and friends. Liza is incredibly creative and during the planning stages, she did an amazing job of listening to my hopes and dreams. We had a remarkably small budget and she made the very most of what we were able to afford. I highly recommend DBI events - the value, their professionalism and artistic creativity are incredible. We couldn't be happier!
I do not think words can express how awesome our wedding flowers from DBI events were. From our very first meeting with Liza, she had so many great ideas. Since our wedding was in November, I wanted to use fall colors but wasn't really excited about red, yellow and orange. Liza suggested deep purple, red and blue as an alternative, which was a great combination. The flowers used in my bouquet were so unique, as opposed to traditional wedding flowers. Also, we were married in a building that use to be a library, so I really wanted to play up the library theme. Liza suggested she create "book trees." Basically she used pages from books as leaves to create tall centerpieces. The book trees also had garlands of flowers throughout. They were such a conversation piece and really tied the whole library theme into the reception. The service provide by DBI events is above and beyond that of a florist and the prices are comparable.
She was awesome!!!! The flowers were gorgeous. She got my aesthetic completely. Couldn't have been happier.
We can't even begin to put into words how amazing Liza is as a decorator and a coordinator. She was simply the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding.
Her taste is unbelievable. After just a few conversations, she was able to propose decor options quickly that were right along the lines of what we wanted. We had a lot of opinions of what we were looking for, and each time she would respond right away and give us more options, on the phone and in person. She knows the area very well and works with so many vendors that it was magnificent. The wedding ceremony and reception turned out beautiful, and she was able to do so many things with a tight budget. It looked so elegant.
She was even more impressive as a coordinator. There was not a single thing she was not on top of during our wedding and well in advance. We hired her as our day-of coordinator, but she was talking to vendors and coordinating months in advance. She always gave it 110%, having phone calls and e-mails with us whenever we needed to talk about something, talking to our vendors multiple times so that everything was perfect, and having a minute by minute schedule that was executed flawlessly. Even when little things came up during the wedding, she handled them with such grace that we never knew many of the things that happened. She was s huge part of why our wedding was a blast and could not have been the same without her.
If you have the chance to work with Liza, definitely do not pass it up. She's simply...
Liza was pretty great! She took the crazy images in our heads and was able to put it together into a workable vision. She is calm, professional and dependable. We had a teeny budget, and she went out of her way to make everything work for us.
Liza did more than just the flowers for my wedding in june. She was amazing! she helped me chose linen colors and decor and made sure that everything was coordinated.
but the flowers were GORGEOUS. Even more beautiful than i could have imagined. They were my favorite part of my wedding.
Liza has impeccable taste. Would totally choose DBI again!!
The flowers were great, from what I saw. I rarely notice flowers at an event, but I did at our wedding. My boutonniere fell off before the ceremony, but that's probably because I was giving too many hugs. Other than that it was fantastic.
I didn't really think I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding to look like. I met with Liza and let her know what I had planned so far and some general ideas of what I wanted. I didn't think it was helpful at the time, but she must have massaged enough information out of me because not only did she come up with a beautiful designs, they complemented my wedding seamlessly. From the ceremony to the reception, her pieces set the tone. They were original and fresh, but classy and timeless. I cannot recommend Liza and DBI events highly enough!
DBI Events was exactly what we needed. Liza is flexible and so good at what she does. My mom even commented on how perfectly the flowers looked. She some how achieved the antique/rustic look we wanted without the flowers looking old or damaged. Perfect! She was really a pleasure to work with. If I had to do it over again I would have absolutely used DBI Events again.
Liza was great! I had only a very small budget to spend on flowers, and she was able to come up with creative and beautiful flowers for us. The table arrangements, especially were just gorgeous! I told her the mood I wanted to create and what colors I liked and she came back very quickly with a detailed proposal that included photos and descriptions. She was very professional and easy to work with as well!
Liza was very open to our ideas with an extra touch of her professionalism. Her quality of work was second to none. She was able to accommodate our budget and provided us with a beautiful outcome. I would 100% recommend her to family and friends.
One word: AMAZING! Actually, one word is not enough to describe the work that DBI Events did for our wedding. The event design was simply stunning - gorgeous arrangements with so much style and at the same time so unique that it was even more beautiful than I could ever imagine! Liza is amazing to work with, she understood right away the look and feel of our wedding and she worked within our budget to create magnificent bouquets, centerpieces, bouts and chuppah. Everyone at our wedding could not stop commenting on the beautiful flower design! I cannot recommend DBI Events enough!
Liza was amazing to work with, she was able to take my vision and bring it to life! The decor for our reception was absolutely amazing and the bouquets and corsages were beautiful! She is very professional and is able to work within the budget you give her. It was truly a pleasure working with her and DBI events!
When choosing vendors for my wedding, one piece of advice I received was to meet with at least three companies before making a decision. When it came time to choose a florist, I actually met with four potential vendors and spoke on the phone with countless others before luckily finding DBI. When I first spoke with Liza over the phone, we talked for almost an hour about the breakdown of my floral needs; after our conversation, I sent her various images of centerpieces and bouquets that I liked. Soon after, when we met to discuss everything in more detail, it was obvious to me that Liza and DBI were the perfect choice for my wedding.
Liza wanted to know all the details—what my husband and I wanted the “feel” of our wedding to be, the design my wedding dress, etc.— and she really cared about having a cohesive theme for all my wedding flowers, manifesting what I truly wanted, and staying within my budget. After our meeting, she promptly responded to all my emails and phone calls with follow up questions or tweaks that came to mind—and was happy to incorporate any updates. For example, I was choosing between a white orchid centerpiece and a more colorful mix of hydrangeas and roses. When we left the meeting, I had decided on the white orchids. Later, after deliberating with my sister and sister-in-law, we felt like the more colorful flower mix would better in my venue. Liza had absolutely no problems with changing course—it was clear that she was there to bring my vision to life. Every time I spoke or emailed with her, I felt like I was speaking with my sister since I felt so comfortable and at ease, and at the same time, she was so professional, remembering every last detail without any hesitation (everything from ribbon color choices and ceremony as well as reception flower choices).
A note on the budget: I remember sharing the image of the white orchid centerpiece that I originally wanted with another florist in Georgetown and she laughed at me when I told her what my budget was (and later accidently sent me an email again making fun of me!). On the other hand, from the very beginning, Liza assured me that what I wanted was compatible with my budget and we tailored everything to ensure that I stayed within what I had in mind to spend.
On the day of my wedding, during the cocktail hour, the wedding coordinator took my husband and I aside and asked us if we would like to take a peek at the ballroom (this was just minutes before the guests were to be seated for dinner). The flowers in the room just took our breath away—it was exactly what I wanted: the tall centerpieces were grand, sitting in very dramatic vases with submerged orchids, the flowers sitting on top were a beautiful, full mixture of hydrangeas and roses and the low centerpieces served as an elegant counterbalance. I remember my sister had a chance to see the room before everyone else and she too remarked: “This is exactly what you wanted!!!!”
I can’t say enough amazing things about Liza and her staff. They are professional, prompt, flexible, budget-friendly, and most importantly work wonders with flowers and treated me like I was their only client. Going forward, I will be using DBI for any and all upcoming celebrations and events and will recommend them to all my friends and family.
DBI Events took our vision and made it a reality beyond our wildest dreams. They transformed our space for our wedding. Their attention to detail was thoroughly appreciated. It was a great collaborative effort to work with DBI through the creative process. And the day of, we were completely blown away.
We had friends who had a flower design delivered to our room. It was breathtaking and fresh. I would recommend their services anytime.
Liza was a joy to work with and was a sea of calm amidst much wedding chaos planning. Not only was she completely patient with a perfectionist bride, but she did an excellent job of taking the ideas and bringing them to life. We wanted a warm environment but that was also cheerful and that would speak to a Moroccan inspired color palette. Everyone commented on how beautiful our tables looked and I personally feel her knowledge of flowers and eye for style and decor made our wedding exactly what we wanted.
Liza was a pleasure to work with. My daughter was pleased with her ideas for the theme she wanted for her wedding. She exceeded all expectations of the proposal presented for the wedding. The guest also gave great comments about how beautiful everything was. She did an outstanding job on the chuppah she created. Liza is very creative and her presentation and devotion to her work was evident at our special occasion. Robin G.
A friend of mine sent me a link to Liza's blog knowing I was looking for someone to do my wedding flowers and decor and I instantly fell in love with her designs. Her retro flare, edgy undertones and classy style all shine brilliantly through her work. She worked with me, sensitive to my taste and adaptive to the site and occasion, with a flow of endless creative ideas and the patience of a saint. Liza has a burning passion for the business that is apparent in her work and is incredibly refreshing to work with. Her fun loving friendly personality lends well to working closely together creating something intimate and personal. Aside from being warm, receptive and exceptionally creative, Liza is extremely professional and punctual. I look forward to hiring Liza for every special occasion and party I throw in the future, because I know without a doubt with Liza's touch it will be more beautiful than I could have envisioned on my own. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone with taste, class, edge, and a budget.
Melanie and I could not have asked for anything more from DBI. The work was beautiful and exactly what we would have done if we were able to do this kind of stuff ourselves. Liza was available and was quick to answer emails and questions. Her guidance and service was priceless. Liza made the process of picking flowers and arrangements painless and easy, which as the groom, I valued. Everything was perfect and we were ecstatic to have Liza and DBI be part of our special day. Thank You!
Very talented team.
I just love working with DBI Events! They have a knack for pulling together all the right details to make every event special.
Combine your need for a florist, designer and all of those special whimsical touches in one company and you come up with DBI Events.
Owner and Head designer, Liza Bourkard, not only trained with one of the top floral designers in NYC but went on to travel the world, researching, learning and becoming inspired. Bringing all of that with her, she opened DBI in the DC Metro area.

DBI hits the nail smack on the head, every time. Why waste your time looking...
Liza of DBI Events is a true artist. She will listen to your ideas and then take them to a whole other level so that the final product is beyond your expectations. She knows flowers, color, decor, and design. I had the pleasure of not only working with her through my clients, but also commissioned her for my Royal Watch Party Event. I knew I wanted an English Garden look but didn't know exactly how to pull it together. Liza worked her magic and the results were stunning. Liza will not disappoint.
Liza at DBI events is the gal to go to for flowers. She's so creative, and her arrangements always feature creative combination of flowers, colors and texture. She's reasonably priced and a delight to work with. Any time I get a wedding that she's working in I know I'm in for a treat!
