Perfect from beginning to end!
Shanda and her team were awesome to work with from start to finish; we're so glad we found Flor de Casa!
We had basically no idea what we wanted when we started planning our wedding but I stumbled across the Flor de Casa instagram and fell in love with Shanda's designs. Despite not really knowing what to ask for, Shanda was able to put together a proposal that totally fit our vision for the day. She was happy to work with us to adjust as we approached our wedding date.
Things couldn't have turned out better on the day! My bouquet was gorgeous, as were my bridesmaids' bouquets and the matching ceremony/sweetheart table arrangements. Guests and other vendors couldn't stop commenting on the amazing the floating baby's breath clouds installed throughout the space. These were just -so cool- and her team clearly worked really hard to put them together. Plus, we noticed that some extra flowers were sprinkled throughout our space and deeply appreciated such thoughtful touches.
The florals at our wedding were everything we could've hoped for and we would highly, highly recommend Flor de Casa!Sent on 02/22/2020

I cannot recommend Shanda and the Flor de Casa team enough! From the first consultation call (which Shanda took from vacation so I wouldn't have to wait for her to get back!) to the final execution of our plan, it was such a pleasure to work with this team. Importantly, I was looking to save money on florals because my parents were paying and I didn't want to overburden them with additional costs. Shanda listened to my needs and concerns and came up with a gorgeous bridal bouquet and groom's boutonnière, simple and classy centerpieces, and an absolutely show-stopping fireplace mantelpiece that served as the focal point for our ceremony and pictures. And all for less than the budget I gave her. Four months later, and my mother is STILL talking about how much she loved that mantelpiece! It was organic and flowing and really, really special - we got compliments on it all night long. And on top of all of this, my wedding was on March 14, 2020 - right as the COVID-19 panic was taking hold in DC. We went back and forth on whether to cancel, and Shanda and her team were supportive and understanding. We ultimately decided to go forward and while I was worried about potentially putting them in harm's way, they showed up with smiles and grace and did an amazing job. I'm so incredibly grateful! Don't hesitate to work with them if you can!Sent on 07/10/2020

Shanda and her team is the real deal.

Shanda's team works with purpose, empathy and efficiency. I've been in this profession for quite some time and I can't help but compare Shanda's performance with other professionals. She looks after the event as a whole, properly considering every facet of the day.
They're creatives, this is very important when dealing with fellow artisans that work for you on your wedding day. She's never rushed the portrait sessions throughout the day, allowing the couple to enjoy the process. If you're like the rest of us, we don't look forward to picture-taking. Someone waiting for you while tapping their toes until you finish doesn't help. :)
There are so many more good things to say as I'm sure you'll see from the other reviews. Cheers.
