Shawn was a dream to work with. She was really responsive and always got back to your emails quickly! After seeing the flowers from previous weddings I knew this was our florist! They were unbelievably gorgeous. I was actually most excited on our wedding day for the flowers. I was surprised and confused however when the bouquets were brought to the hotel room the day of the wedding because I was almost certain they had accidentally brought me the wrong bouquet. The main flower in bouquet was going to be a dahlia with a yellow center that went out to coral on the edges. I unfortunately didn't get any in the bouquet. The pops of color in the bouquet were supposed to be poppy and coral but instead we received a lot of hot pinks and some purples. The bouquet itself was stunning, but it just wasn't what I was expecting at all. After multiple planning meetings I had a pretty good idea in my head what it was going to look like so it was disappointing to not have that at the wedding. After Shawn heard I was confused about the flowers and colors she let me know that the dahlias that originally were supposed to be in the bouquet were far too large but they were being used in the centerpieces at the reception. Totally understandable, but maybe more communication would have been helpful. When we got to the venue for the first look Shawn added a few more flowers to my bouquet which was really nice of her.
We worked with Shawn at the Floral Studio for our wedding at the Peabody Library in Baltimore. Shawn was wonderful to work with- she listened to our ideas, provided suggestions specific to our venue since she has worked there before, and delivered a breathtaking product the day of. We looked at several florists in the area before deciding to work with Shawn because she understood our style and vision and also was the most reasonably priced, given my champagne taste (peonies, ranunculus, garden roses- I'm looking at you). She's also just the nicest person to work with, and her staff was also extremely helpful in arranging delivery logistics. Thank you!
"These flowers look like they are from a magazine"
That is the quote that my guests had said to me about my center pieces and bridal and bridesmaids bouquets.
They are fantastic! They had such great ideas and were able to incorporate the pictures I brought to them in our meeting to life!
Shawn at the Floral Studio was a delight to work with. She paid close attention to our color scheme and stuck to the budget we wanted to spend. The flowers were beautiful, especially the gorgeous arrangement she created for the escort card table which was mounted on a tall crystal stand.
If you have a chance to check out her blog, please do so. You can tell that she has a real eye for color and composition. Just a natural talent. http://floralstudio.wordpress.com/
I would highly recommend her services for your special day. Oh, and Susie, who delivered and set up the flowers did a wonderful job as well. She is so sweet!
My wife and I worked with Shawn and had a very pleasant experience. She was able to take our pictures and descriptions to put together our beautiful bouquets and even glitzed them up with pearls and crystals. The flowers are a little on the pricey side which is why we only got bouquets but flowers are expensive period. We would definitely recommend this florist.
Shawn was fantastic to work with and has a truly artistic vision for floral displays.
I was referred to Shawn at The Floral Studio by a friend of mine whose wedding flowers were gorgeous. Of the three vendors we met with, only Shawn made an impact. Our consultation was over an hour and I felt like she really understood the overall look I wanted. I left her a lot of freedom in the specifics, but wasn't stressed about it because we had such a rich consultation. The flowers were beautiful on my wedding day. Very fresh and a beautiful color palate that matched what I was looking for. She emailed me the morning of saying she switched the boutinteere flower due to a color issue with the flower we had originally discussed. I was totally find with it and appreciated getting the heads up before hand. I would select Shawn again!
Our ceremony was at the Pier 5 Hotel, and our reception was in the National Aquarium’s Pier 4. Shawn came highly recommended by event staff at the Pier 5 Hotel. Her business is operated out of her home, and she was very warm in welcoming us inside to plan the floral arrangements. Her knowledge of both flowers and the circumstances that surround weddings are nothing short of extraordinary. Without hesitation, she was able to recommend flowers that not only matched the style of our wedding but also our budget. When issues with the availability of specific flowers arose, she was immediately able to recommend an alternative approach that was every bit as beautiful as originally designed. Deliveries were made to both venues, on time, and well organized. Arrangements were as creative as they were gorgeous. Great florist!
The flowers for my wedding were absolutely beautiful - I used bright pink and orange colors. I had bouquets, wrist corsages, boutonnieres, and flowers for the church. My bouquet was wrapped in pretty satin ribbon, and the wrist corsages came with very delicate pearl bracelets. I gave Shawn pictures of what I wanted and the final flowers were very close matches. We planned the flowers in just one in-person meeting and we had a phone call to confirm details, which I appreciated since I was planning a wedding on a shorter time frame. I also liked that the bouquets were delivered in vases. I would definitely recommend The Floral Studio.
Shawn and her team did my personals recently for my wedding. They did a great job and delivered exactly what was promised
Shawn was excellent. I had so many complements on the floral décor Shawn and her team did for my wedding. I had a prolonged wedding planning process since my military better half got deployed right before the original date, and everyone was so understanding and accepting about it. When it came time a year later to get into the swing of things again for the new date, everything progressed seamlessly, picking up where we left off. Other than the beautiful product, what also really impressed me was the Shawn personally got involved in a situation that really did not have anything to do with her aspect of the wedding, when there was an issue between my venue and another decorator. She was very honest and open with me about what was going on, and her opinions on the situation, which I was very appreciative of. In the end, everything turned out wonderfully, and if there is one aspect of the wedding that I could change, it would have been to have a larger flower budget.
We met with multiple florists before the wedding and after meeting with Shawn I knew we had to work with her. We simply told her the look we were going for and some specific flowers we wanted to include and she took it from there. She was able to show us some different options based on our color scheme and the season. I was really set on incorporating one specific flower and even though it was hard to get due to the season Shawn was not only able to secure some for the wedding, she also incorporated them beautifully. I love that I could be hands-off with Shawn. She does a really good job of listening to you and gauging your style and on the wedding day she definitely delivers. I received so many compliments on the flowers and my bouquet. The flowers really made my tables and Shawn and her team did a great job setting it all up. Shawn was very flexible; I e-mailed her as it got closer to the wedding because I wanted to add more flowers to the chapel and to the cake. I sent one e-mail and they looked perfect on the day of the wedding! All of the flowers looked fresh and fully bloomed; they were really beautiful. I highly recommend The Floral Studio to anyone looking for beautiful flowers for their wedding day!
I met with Shawn early on in my wedding planning and was able to share my vision for all of the wedding florals with her. I ordered florals for the day before my wedding and put them in vases myself with bridesmaids. They were all so beautiful and Shawn captured my vision perfectly! I then had the bridal bouquets dropped off on the wedding day. While some of the flowers in my bouquet were bruised and not perfect when I received it, overall everything was beautiful and I loved the style. I really appreciated that Shawn really heard my vision and executed it perfectly in her floral decisions.
It was wonderful to work with Shawn at the Floral Studio. When I first spoke to Shawn, I let her know that my friends offered to do my flowers for my wedding but had seen a wedding she had done with cherry blossoms and was curious to know if it was possible given my budget. Shawn very candid about where to cut costs which was such a relief considering so many other vendors I spoke with seemed to be marking up prices for weddings. She worked within my budget and she exceeded my expectations on our wedding day.
We used the Floral Studio for our recent wedding and the flowers were beautiful. I met with Shawn early in the process and she was really helpful in thinking through with me what would be best for our venue and what flowers went with the vision I had of how the reception would look. Everything was right on time the day of the wedding, and the flowers were beautiful. Highly recommended.
The flowers for my wedding were absolutely gorgeous! I could not take my eyes off of them. Shawn really understood my vision and exceeded my expectations. Her creations really elevated the atmosphere at my wedding- magazine worthy. The chuppah was exactly how I had imagined, rustic elegance. I received so many compliments from my guests. Shawn and her staff were attentive, professional, and a pleasure to work with. Shawn also provided the flowers for my rehearsal dinner which we re-purposed for the cocktail hour. Her suggestions, recommendations, and experience helped me set my expectations and make decisions that yielded the intended results I dreamed about within my budget.
