The most stunning flowers I’ve ever seen!
Soo Son from Silverstems did the flowers for two events before and after my son’s and daughter in law’s wedding in July in Annapolis, Maryland. The first one was a rehearsal dinner at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel in the ballroom with a beautiful patio overlooking the harbor. The second event was the after-wedding brunch at the Westin Hotel in Annapolis.
I contacted Soo Son less than 2 months before the wedding and we had a couple of telephone conversations and the rest of our communications were done by email. She took my ideas and turned them into the most spectacular flower arrangements I have ever seen. For the rehearsal dinner, I sent her two inspiration photos and we talked about slightly rustic arrangements in square wooden boxes. I asked her to include the bride’s favorite – succulents – and she incorporated them beautifully. The flowers were just gorgeous. Soo Son did a variety of arrangements and the guests were really thrilled when I invited some of them to take them home.
For the brunch, I had a crazy idea of modern, Asian inspired arrangements. I sent her some pictures as examples. Soo Son exceeded anything I could ever have imagined. They were breathtaking. In addition to the vertical modern table arrangements on each table, Soo Son also did 2 bigger ones for display tables. And, wow!!! Imagine the most striking and stunning arrangements you’ve ever seen and that’s what we had. They were truly remarkable.
The funny thing was since we were planning so close to the time of the events, we never actually had the opportunity to meet in person. That makes it even more astonishing that Soo Son was able to create the arrangements of my (and the bride’s) dreams. I can’t recommend Soo Son and Silverstems more highly.Sent on 09/05/2019

We were blown away by how gorgeous the centerpieces were for our reception. My bouquet was just perfect, too. I would recommend this florist for your wedding. They were very affordable without compromising in quality.Sent on 09/05/2019

Soo is an incredibly talented florist. She has done the floral centerpieces and the bouquets for bride/bridesmaids at both my older sister's Annapolis wedding 3 years ago and my own Washington D.C. wedding this summer. We were blown away both times by her professionalism, her responsiveness, and most importantly the BEAUTIFUL flowers that she arranges. I cannot recommend her highly enough.Sent on 06/26/2018

Soo really worked hard to create a wedding arch which fulfills the bride's needs even we did not have enough time until the wedding day, it was a difficult request and also we did not have a chance to meet Soo, since we only have an office in Tokyo. We are sure Soo is the best florist around Annapolis.Sent on 11/01/2018

Soo Son, Owner, Silverstems, did a FABULOUS job with all of the flowers and garland at our Watermark boat wedding!Sent on 09/08/2016
Soo was easy to work with, responsive and had a creative vision from the start.
The bouquets, garland with accent lights and centerpieces were made to perfection and we received a number of complements from our guests.
If you are looking for an exceptional florist for any occasion, trust Soo for your floral needs.
I highly recommend her and her team.

I HIGHLY recommend Silverstems for any floral needs. I could not have been happier with my wedding flowers - they were stunning and completely exceeded my expectations. Soo was wonderful - always responsive and helpful. It was a great and seamless experience that added so much beauty to the day.Sent on 05/18/2015

Thank you so much Soo for making our wedding day one we will never forget! Your arrangements were breathtakingly beautiful. It was better than we could ever have envisioned.

Soo Son was delightful to work with! She is very professional in her dealings but also very approachable and friendly. She makes every effort to understand the Bride's vision and style and is very honest about availability and possibilities for the flowers and decor. She was very meticulous with her proposal and suggestions. She was familiar with our venues and revisited them with our event in mind. We are thrilled with our results - they are over and beyond what we expected - and we had high expectations! Soo Son is a talented artist and we have been blessed by our dealings with her. We highly recommend Silverstems - they are the best! Our wedding and reception flowers were outstanding and beautiful! Thank you thank you!Sent on 08/03/2014

I used Silver Stems for my wedding a couple weeks ago and I was blown away by what they were able to do. The flowers were gorgeous, fresh and unique. They listened to exactly what I wanted and exceeded my expectations in every way. I received so many compliments from guests about how amazing the flowers were, and, on top of that, she also provided the vases and candle holders for the reception so I didn't have to go through the hassles of finding a separate vendor to rent those. I cannot recommend Silver Stems enough!Sent on 06/14/2014

Soo arranged the most beautiful centerpieces and bouquets for my wedding. I think they might have been my favorite detail of the whole day. When I walked into my reception space (I hadn't seen them beforehand) it took my breath away. Soo was great to work with and always responded to any inquiries rapidly. She created artful pieces but also listened when I told her what I wanted (and what I didn't). I am so thankful that I was introduced to Soo because I didn't have "colors" for my wedding. My flowers were the color in the space and I needed to have that bring the area to life. She listened when I said I wanted metallic vases and made it work. I literally feel like she was able to look into the vision I has in my mind. I had various types of arrangements (large, grouped, cocktail tables) to make sure that each table didn't look exactly the same. The bouquets were sublime. All shades of white and so classy. I think Silverstems is very reasonably priced and I got a lot for my money. Soo stayed to the budget we gave her and I think she went above and beyond. Please use Soo Son with Silverstems! You will be glad you did! Thank you Soo!!!Sent on 06/12/2014

Soo was great! She was attentive to my needs, even readying a bouquet for tossing even without me asking (and it was included in my price!). She worked with my limited budget and yet our flowers were AMAZING and people kept complimenting about them.Sent on 06/09/2014

Soo did the flowers for my bridal party and the reception. My mom was very concerned about having beautiful arrangements to brighten up our reception but I honestly couldn't have cared less about the flowers. Well, after seeing Soo's beautiful designs at the reception I changed my mind!Sent on 02/09/2014
We asked for modern, clean centerpieces and the arrangements Soo delivered were amazing--very unique and modern while bringing some color and interest to the room. Many of our guests commented on them throughout the night.
Also, my bouquet was beautiful--hot pink calla lilies wrapped with a white ribbon!

Soo provided us with the most beautiful flowers for our outdoor wedding at Pintail Point. She delivered with a more beautiful result than our initial discussions, worked with us on budget, and even did extra corsages and buttoners for us to have ready for special people in the party. She exceeded our expectations, and delivered superb service as well. Trust her recommendations to you!Sent on 09/09/2013

Most brides have trouble 'letting go' of major decisions and they lack trust in their vendors. I felt this same way until my second meeting with Soo at Silverstems. She immediately made me believe in her craft and her ability to create my vision exactly as I wished. Not only did she meet and exceed my expectations she was a calming affect on me and my mom. She delivered big time and the hug my mom and I had after our first glance at the reception site represents the happiness we had with her work. She is truly talented and an aboslute pleasure to work with. I COULD NOT HAVE FOUND ANYONE BETTER to bring my vision to life.Sent on 09/25/2013
Thank you to Soo and Silverstem for making my wedding beautiful!

I cannot even begin to talk about how glad I am that I chose Soo San for my daughter's wedding. She is so professional, so personable and so amazing. She worked with us carefully, respecting our budget, and still delivered above and beyond our expectations. The flowers were gorgeous, the tables so artfully done. This is one amazing florist!!!!Sent on 07/31/2013

I was delighted with Silverstems as was my daughter Pauline and our guests. The flowers Soo Son used were of high quality and they were truly beautiful. The arrangements were elegant and yet striking. The bride's bouquet and those of the bridesmaids were luminous and more beautiful than I could say.She did a fabulous job and working with her was both easy and professional. Soo Son had a vision for the project and it came through. She is truly an artist. I was also happy to have the centerpieces to use again for brunch the day after the wedding. They were stunning in the Duke of Gloucester Room of the Maryland Inn. What more could I have asked for!Sent on 05/07/2013
I have only two regrets to share. The first is that I was distracted when she arrived with her assistant and I could not speak with her longer and tell her just how much I appreciated the work she did. The second regret is that Silverstems is not close to me so I can treat myself to her flowers. O, well we can't have everything.

I was lucky enough to be have used Soo for several corporate events over the last 8 years. So when I began planning my daughter's recent wedding, Soo was my first phone call. And she delivered big time!!! The flowers for the wedding were absolutely stunning and breathtaking and most importantly exactly what we were hoping for. I knew she was very talented and a perfectionist, but she even exceeded my high expectations. Additionally, I love that she is honest and direct, but such a delight to work with. I had a few favorite vendors during the planning process and Soo is at the top of that list. Thank you Soo for making Lauren and Steve's wedding day so beautiful!!! I look forward to working with you again soon.Sent on 08/02/2012

Soo Soon of Silver Stems is nothing short of brilliant! Her arrangements reflect her artistry and creativity. Most importantly, she is more than wiling to work within your budget. My husband and I had a very limited budget for flowers and several other florists not only were unwilling to work with us, they were down right insulting. Soo was realistic yet accommodating. She informed me of what I'd be able to obtain with our budget and produced marvelous results, despite the cost limitations. As a result, our photographer submitted photos from our wedding to several blogs and online wedding databases and our arrangements and bouquets attracted a variety of favorable comments. This is a testament to Soo's ability to create stunning results within a limited budget.Sent on 07/08/2012

Soo was recommended for my daughter's wedding by our wedding planner at Wedding Savvy and boy did she deliver. She is an artist and I never had a doubt after meeting her and seeing pictures of her work that she would do a great job. She might be a bit higher in price, I don't know since as soon as my daughter and I met her she was the one. My daughter's bouquet was breathtaking, hers was soo much nicer than Kim Kardashian's! She was given a swatch of the bridesmaids' blue dresses and she made up the most beautiful bouquets in blue and white that complimented the dresses, outstanding. We were planninng on using coral colored flowers as an accent but the ones she was planning on weren't available, she sent me an email right away to suggest some other kinds she could use. Knowing what an artist she is I left her to decide what she wanted to do and she decided on just the white and blue theme and the centerpieces were more than gorgeous. She had a very dramatic centerpiece of tall vases of callas on the table with the placecards when the guests first came in and those flowers lasted more than a week. All in all Soo and Silverstems met our expectations and then some. I still remember seeing for the first time the centepieces on the tables in the ballroom and they took my breath away. As a mother of the bride there is no better feeling to see all of your plans turn out perfectly and Soo helped us attain our goal.Sent on 08/28/2011
