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!

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ~ Lauren DeStefano

Summer has dissipated and took along its orchestra of cicadas, its pastel watercolored scenery, and eternally bare feet; but left us with the arresting earth tones of oranges, browns, and yellows splashed intermittently in our backyards. Autumn has a unique lure about it; you cannot help but to try to inhale the entire world into your lungs the moment you walk outside. That crisp air, sings a sweet melody as it hits your face, into your nostrils, and travels through your body – “today is a new day” ❂

Thank you, Washingtonian Magazine and yet again Wedding Wire… 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 awarded Stephanie (yet again!) the ‘WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award of 2017′ – and if that was not enough Stephanie was featured in the Washingtonian for ‘The 16 Coolest Washington Weddings of 2016′ and her flowers were also featured in an article on the beautiful wedding of Nancy Bell & Jesse Vasquez!

“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:
