Stephanie is an ARTIST, not just a simple florist. I spoke with a couple of florists before choosing to work with her for my wedding and she blew me away with her creativity. I am so happy she was available on my wedding day. Stephanie really listened to what I wanted but also had lots of suggestions -- which I absolutely loved and needed, since I did not know much about flowers. She worked very hard at maintaining my budget, offered different options to include all price ranges, and provided me with choices.Sent on 09/22/2015
The flowers came out stunning - breathtaking, romantic, and elegant. Everything turned out above and beyond what I expected. Stephanie also took charge of arranging and decorating the tables with the provided materials - which was so helpful - and made sure that everything looked impeccable as far as centerpieces went.
Stephanie runs a tight ship and everything was delivered as promised, on time, details were not omitted, and she went the extra mile for me. Her studio is a garden wonderland and as with every artist's studio there is a degree of organized chaos involved.. : ) Don't let this fool you because you will get everything done just right with lots of extra attention to detail. I would absolutely work with her again and recommend her to others.

Stephanie was wonderful to work with from start to finish! I was not entirely sure what I was looking for when she and I first sat down, but she spent a lot of time with me to learn about my style. We decided to go in one direction, but after she and I met again where she had created samples (a WONDERFUL perk of working with her!), I had a few different ideas that she completely went along with. Our flowers day of were absolutely gorgeous and had been set up perfectly by the time I arrived at the wedding venue. Lastly, Stephanie was willing to work within my budget! She is incredibly talented, creative, and a great listener. I could not recommend her more!Sent on 11/25/2019

Better Than I Imagined
Stephanie took what was in my head and created arrangements above and beyond my ideas. She has such an amazing eye for flowers and was so receptive to what I wanted and gave such amazing ideas to make all of the flower arrangements beautiful!Sent on 10/21/2019
Stephanie's Secret Garden's reply:Thank you so much Andria!!! You, your Mom, and your Mother-in-law were absolutely delightful to work with❤️
Stephanie's Secret Garden should not be a secret... she makes lovely floral decorations for all seasons and all types of events. She is extremely creative, and knows how to make "one of a kind" floral masterpieces. She lives nearby Rocklands Farm, so the delivery time is short! I love having our local businesses here in the Agricultural Reserve of Montgomery County be a part of our wedding team!
We recently had the pleasure of working with Stephanie's Secret Garden and can't say enough about the beautiful floral designs created by Stephanie and her team. Their designs are always stylish and sophisticated!
