Welcome!

A Different Kind of Flower Shop

Stephanie's specializes in the creative, chic and unusual. Floral designs range from classic elegance to funky and over the top! Stephanie incorporates herbs, berries, fruits, feathers and ribbons. Containers are frequently vintage finds, teapots, and crystal compotes.

Weddings are a specialty, and no affair is too large or small. Weddings can be done in the entire Mid Atlantic area. Delivery in the Poolesville area, including Barnesville, Dickerson and Beallsville is free, and for a small charge delivery can be made to all parts of Montgomery and Frederick Counties, MD and most of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.

We Do Fabulous Weddings for All Budgets!

“Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.” – Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Spring is the most mesmerizing time of the year; the earth laughs in flowers, the air is soaked in sunshine, the night sings the nostalgic melody of the peep frogs and cicadas, while the fireflies dance to their rhythm ❆

Stephanie’s Secret Garden Flower Shop started on a dream in a wee shop hidden within a plaza in the rural town of Poolesville; because of all her amazing & loyal flower people, Wedding Wire has awarded Stephanie (yet again!) the ‘WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award of 2017′ – and if that was not enough Stephanie is featured in ‘The 16 Coolest Washington Weddings of 2016′!

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.” Victor Hugo

I did not bring you roses
When you searched for something rare,
Instead I brought you daisies
And I hoped you wouldn’t care;

And now I look behind me
With a wistful little smile -
You would have taken dandelions
And loved me all the while.
☾ Linda Ori

Wedding Wire Appreciation ❋ “Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow” Vincent van Gogh

Stephanie & her “flower friends”
(some would call them employees)
might say they “would rather wear flowers in their hair,
than diamonds around their neck” which Wedding Wire
obviously recognizes and truly appreciates ~
