"I worked with Steve and Kelly Ann on both my intimate first ceremony and larger wedding celebration a year later and they were wonderful to work with! They made my vision come to life with the most beautiful flowers and greenery. They captured my moody fall floral ideas perfectly and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again!" - Elyssa B., Bride

Our Story

When you visit Watered Garden Florist, be prepared for something a little different from your traditional retail florist experience. The Studio is set in a commercial business park a stone’s throw from the JC Raulston Arboretum and features offices and a show room as well as a warehouse where the floral magic happens.

Steve Taras started Watered Garden Florist as a one-man show, operating out of his home building over the years to a team of designers that works with prominent local residents, businesses, museums and universities. Steve and the team have traveled up and down the eastern seaboard designing weddings and events in Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, D.C. & Virginia – even a yacht in the Caribbean.

The most intriguing thing about their work is their talent and ability to bring your vision to life – even if you’re not 100% sure what that vision is. They will work with you to come up with a design that provides the perfect finishing touch to your event.

Come in, explore the Studio and meet Isabella, Steve’s friendly and exuberant dog – you’ll also get to meet all the members of the team responsible for bringing your event to life.
