Born in Costa Rica, flowers have been around me since my infancy. It wasn't until I married my best friend in 2015 that I realized just how much I loved them. A year later, Flor de Casa Designs was born. Inspired by a complete stranger, my Northern Virginia based floral studio caters to brides that have a taste for natural beauty.
I specialize in fine art floral design. A design style for couples wanting loose, organic, textured and free-flowing flower arrangements that take inspiration from the beautiful blooms we find in nature. No roundy-moundy's found here, folks!
I have had the honor of being featured in several publications, including: Washingtonian Weddings, United with Love, Wedding Chicks and Baltimore Magazine (June 2019 Issue) among others.
Brides searching for understated luxury, sophistication, timeless and elegant events that will remain etched in their memory for years to come have found the right place.
Some kind words
"When we first got engaged, I wasn't very concerned about flowers.
Honestly thought we could try and be modest about it and use that money elsewhere! Wrong! I had actually gotten quotes from a few other florists before talking to Shanda, and everyone's proposal with ideas when I would explain it to them was not very close to the look we were going for... I then talked to Shanda and she hit the nail right on the head... Everything turned out perfect on the day of (even better than imagined) and received many, many compliments about it as well! Thank you again for making our day beautiful!" - Jessica (2019 Bride)
