Welcome to The Fertile Burb, your premiere wedding florist nestled in the vibrant DMV area, servicing Greater Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Western Maryland, and the surrounding Baltimore regions. We specialize in creating floral artistry that captures the essence of your event and honors the beauty of our local and sustainable blooms. From the initial seed to the final centerpiece, we are dedicated to crafting a unique floral narrative that intertwines seamlessly with your personal story. Our bespoke service is not just about arranging flowers; it’s about creating a memorable, one-of-a-kind celebration that reflects the uniqueness of your love and life’s most cherished moments.



We cater to our environmentally conscious clients with a refined level of garden sourced floristry, featuring our farm’s sustainably grown stems of blooms and foliage, uniquely cultivated for your event. At The Fertile Burb, our dual role as farmer and florist provides an unmatched experience. Our approach goes beyond mere floral arrangements; we intimately nurture each plant from seed to centerpiece. This direct involvement in growing gives us a profound understanding of each flower’s needs, ensuring we deliver the freshest and most stunning selections, harvested specifically for your occasion. Our planning process is rooted in the earth, beginning months in advance in our fields, not from a wholesaler’s catalog. We carefully orchestrate what to plant and when, considering seasonal changes and weather influences on the blooms’ color and character. This intricate balance of farming and floral artistry ensures that the flowers adorning your event are not just decorative elements but represent stories of passion, meticulous care, and a deep connection to the natural world.

A note to our potential Full Service clients: For 2024, our Full-Service floral arrangements come with a minimum budget of $3,000, exclusive of delivery, setup, and breakdown costs. This ensures we provide the highest quality and personalized service for your special day.

To help with your planning, it’s useful to know that the average cost of event flowers typically represents 10-12 percent of the total wedding budget. This pricing structure ensures we provide the highest quality and personalized service for your special day. While $3,000 is our base, we often find our clients’ total investment, including flowers and additional decor items, falls within the $7000-$15000 range, particularly during the peak wedding season in the DMV area.


Design in floral artistry is akin to the ebb and flow of a gentle stream, effortlessly drawing us into its world of wonder and grace. It’s a journey that can evoke serenity, spark inspiration, or set the stage for moments of profound significance. Imagine the way water carves its path through nature, fluid and purposeful, its course an ever-changing dance of harmony and balance. Each arrangement we create mirrors this natural flow, where every stem finds its rightful place, allowing the entire composition to breathe and resonate with life.

Color plays a whimsical role in our designs, allowing us to experiment with shades, tones, and contrasts, interlacing complementary hues for visual impact. Drawing from my experience as a classically trained dancer, I approach floral design with the grace and fluidity reminiscent of Martha Graham’s modern dance. Her ability to express profound emotion through movement inspires my designs to go beyond the visual, creating arrangements that are not just seen but felt, evoking an emotional resonance that captures the essence of each bloom’s story.

All the words being used to describe our floristry.

We’re not just about exceptional blooms: 
Our commitment extends to providing outstanding customer service and transparency.

Spring at our farm is a symphony of colors and textures. We cultivate specialty tulips, whimsical ranunculus, ethereal Iceland poppies, and luxurious peonies. The season is further enriched with hellebores and the illuminating beauty of our sweet peas. English cottage garden favorites like foxglove, columbine, snapdragons, and delphinium add layers of texture and height, creating a dreamy spring landscape. As summer unfolds, our focus shifts to vibrant perennials and the delicate dance of Scabiosa, painting our fields with a palette of summer’s warmth and light. The season’s collection is a testament to the enduring beauty of nature, with each bloom crafted to capture the essence of summer’s splendor.

The autumn period is a celebration of nature’s final show, where each flower and leaf tells a story of the passing year. For the daring couples who choose to celebrate their union in the winter, The Fertile Burb offers something truly special.

What’s Your Reservation Process?

First, send us an inquiry, form below, to confirm our availability. Once that’s sorted, we’ll send you a comprehensive questionnaire. This is an important step as it means you’re ready for a consultation. Our consultation isn’t just a meeting; it’s where we get to know you – your unique personality, style, and love story. These insights are crucial for shaping your wedding’s floral designs. After our chat, you’ll get a customized proposal with a mood board, detailed pricing list, and contract. Keep in mind, the average cost of event flowers usually represents 10-12% of your total wedding budget. You have 7 days to review and request one revision on our initial proposal. Once you have reserved with us, you’re free to make more adjustments as needed, except for color changes, since we start planning and growing your flowers right away. For bookings less than 10 months before the wedding, we might source from local, sustainable growers if custom growing isn’t feasible due to time constraints.

How Many Weddings Do You Design Each Season?

We believe in quality over quantity. Each year, we take on only 10 full-service weddings. This deliberate choice stems from our limited growing space and our commitment to delivering an extraordinary, high-style floral experience. By focusing on a select number of events, we ensure that each couple receives our full attention, creativity, and dedication. Our service is designed for clients who place a high value on the role of flowers in their wedding experience. If you envision your wedding day adorned with florals that are as distinct and personal as your own love story, choosing The Fertile Burb for your wedding flowers is a chance to indulge in a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

When do you have flowers?

Our regular growing season at The Fertile Burb spans from mid-April through late October. This is when our gardens are in full flourish, offering a diverse array of blooms. However, the changing climate occasionally blesses us with early springs and extended autumns, allowing flowers to emerge as early as mid-March or linger until mid-November. For the daring and adventurous couples planning their weddings outside of our regular growing season, we’re up for the challenge! Embrace the unique with winter tulips, early hellebores, or late chrysanthemums. If you’re open to exploring creative and stunning floral designs beyond our regular season, please reach out to us. Let’s discuss your date and ideas to see how we can bring your visionary floral dreams to life.

How Do You Price Wedding Florals?

Unlike the usual industry practice of marking up flowers 3 to 5 times their wholesale cost, we keep our prices consistent across different types of flowers. This means choosing more greenery or fewer blooms won’t necessarily lower the cost. The difference is in our growing fee. This covers the cost of seeds, bulbs, labor for growing your flowers, composts, and beneficial insects for a sustainable approach. While our method is distinct, you’ll find our prices align with other local florists. Our approach is transparent and focuses on providing high-quality, unique, and environmentally responsible floral arrangements for your special day. All costs are detailed in your contract and proposal.
