Karin's Florist

About

Karin鈥檚 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.

Experience
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鈥檚 Florist still ring true. This business also combines trust and expertise with beauty and originality to make dreams come true for happy couples.

Services Offered
Couples will find assistance through every step of the wedding process when working with this florist, now run by Bill鈥檚 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鈥檚 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鈥檚 romance and the love the couple has for one another. Their arrangements include:

  • Aisle decor
  • Altar decor
  • Bouquets
  • Boutonnieres
  • Chuppah decor
  • Corsages
  • Flower petals
  • Single flowers
  • Table arrangements

    Great value, even better service

    Bryan was incredibly patient with me and delivered arrangements that really blew us away. I first went to Bryan without any ideas of a color palette or even what flowers I wanted -- just that I wanted as minimal flowers as possible. Despite my giving him very little to work with, he was always responsive and provided ideas for how different colors could play off of each other. His feedback played a major role in helping me lock down the final aesthetic of my wedding. He was also super flexible and happy to update the proposal as we adjusted our visions across the final months. Plus, everything was super reasonably priced. I can't recommend him enough!

    An easy collaborative process

    Karin's Florist was a breeze to work with, and our flowers looked gorgeous. Brian talked us through everything in advance and was receptive to our feedback. We ordered a sample bouquet about 6 weeks ahead of our wedding so that we had an idea of what they would look like in advance. Karin's Florist delivered on the colorful florals that we were looking for and the set up/tear down happened without a hitch. We would definitely recommend them! Photos by Lux Photography.
