Karin’s Florist is a contemporary wedding florist in the Washington, D.C. area for couples seeking the perfect blooms on their big day. This florist works with couples to bring their visions to life in full color, with overflowing bouquets, lush decor, and delicate petals. The company also helps couples find their own creative vision when they feel lost in the process. This ensures that each wedding becomes a fairytale.
This florist opened in 1956 as a business owned by Bill Dukas and his father-in-law George Raptis. They worked weddings of a much different style when they began their business. The trends of the time included elaborate fountains of water, strictly modest dress codes, and wedding cakes with bridge structures. Though the times have certainly changed for many couples since that era, the principles held by Karin’s Florist still ring true. This business also combines trust and expertise with beauty and originality to make dreams come true for happy couples.
Couples will find assistance through every step of the wedding process when working with this florist, now run by Bill’s daughter, Maris Angolia. The team offers consultations, samples, and a venue visit in order to plan their design and their arrangements. For the wedding day itself, the staff offers delivery, setup, and cleanup of the flowers. No matter the style of wedding couples desire, the team at Karin’s Florist can design it. They create vintage and classic arrangements, modern and eclectic arrangements, even nautical or rustic floral arrangements. Each piece will reflect the day’s romance and the love the couple has for one another. Their arrangements include:

Karin’s Flowers came recommended by another friend who was recently married, and Bryan really delivered for us. From our initial conversations, Bryan was interested in our story and our overall expectations for the day. He took time to weave in smaller touches that ultimately gave the flowers a special meaning. When we shifted our plans in late February, Bryan quickly adjusted the pieces to meet our new needs. When the flowers were delivered, they were an instant hit and some people definitely still have them. Throughout the entire process, Bryan’s flexibility and professionalism really saved us a lot of time and stress. We will be Karin’s Flowers customers for life!Sent on 04/09/2021

I met with Bryan to discuss our initial ideas. Orchids, tropical, pinks, purples, and greens. He was wonderful to work with. When we ended up spending more on other items, we had to cut our flower budget. Bryan worked with us to decide on the cuts. We ended up keeping all the personal flowers (bouquets, bouts, etc.) in the order. They arrived that morning, right on time, for our pictures. They were absolutely beautiful!! Gorgeous!! I highly recommend this florist. It's so worth it.Sent on 05/24/2012
On a side note: I even ended up deciding to have the flowers preserved since they were so gorgeous! :) I'll review that vendor as well once I see the finished product!

Bryan was creative from the start of the process where we had little knowledge of what flower arrangements would work best with the stargazer flowers we were trying to include at our wedding. Bryan came up with a unique approach to the boutonnieres as well as the centerpieces. Even when I decided to change the flowers a few months before the wedding Bryan was able to communicate with me quickly and efficiently to get those changes done and was very clear in terms of the cost changes, so there were no surprises. On the day of the wedding, we found we did not need one of the three tables and were worried we paid for an extra centerpiece that was going to waste. However, Bryan and his team along with our wedding coordinator made an on-site decision and broke down the third centerpiece to decorate the venue. Overall Karin's florist has an amazing staff, great coordinators, and Bryan always replied to my email or calls promptly.Sent on 12/26/2020

Karin's Florist is EXCELLENT! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing and photographing all their beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, arrangements and chuppah display at a wedding in May 2012. I would recommend them to anyone! See photos from the gorgeous May wedding here: http://www.jessicaschmittphotography.com/blog/2012/05/georgetown-glamour/
