Love notes


FROM GRACE TOOLAN, BRIDE: We were beyond thrilled with the florals that Thurman & Fig created for our wedding. I was so happy in fact that I found my self clapping when they came in with my bouquet and my maid of honor cried. Carly and her team truly create magic and are true floral artists. I kept saying throughout our wedding day that I felt as if Carly had read my mind and throughout the process she really made an effort to understand our vision for our wedding and who we were as people (and she was spot on). She listened to what I liked and then created something that matched my vision and was creative, unique, and 100 times better than what I ever imagined. She was beyond a pleasure to work with and is the kindest and coolest individual. Her team was the same - they radiated positivity which added so much to our experience! It is clear that Carly is passionate about her work and it comes through in the products she creates. We were beyond impressed and would 100% recommend Thurman & Fig.

FROM BRIELLA BROADWICK, BRIDE: I cannot speak highly enough of Carly and her team. Wow wow wow! Going into the planning process, I knew I liked colorful florals, but that was about it and I was quite overwhelmed by the process. I had a hard time fully describing what I wanted, but Carly took my ideas and ran with it. All of my florals were an absolute dream--better than I could have ever imagined. I can't tell you how many of my guests also commented on how beautiful all the floral design was. Carly is also such a sweet person and easy to work with. She definitely was my MVP vendor.

Whimsical, dreamy and magical are the words that first come to mind when I reflect back on my wedding day flowers. From the bouquets, to the grounded floral arch, to the urns at the end of the isle, everything was literal perfection. The Thurman and Fig team truly brought every single vision I had come to life - but better. They blew me away. And not only is this team of incredible artists seriously talented, they are also kind, professional, patient and friendly. It was my true pleasure to work with them. I 100%, 5 stars, pick up the phone right now, recommend Thurman & Fig.

FROM BETHANY CALLAHAN, BRIDE: Carly and her team at Thurman & Fig were absolutely amazing to work with. Through several phone calls, emails, and mood boards, she took the time to get to know us and our style and was able to put together pieces for our wedding that completely surpassed any of our expectations. It was as if she went into our brains and understood exactly what we were envisioning for our wedding and then created something even more spectacular. From our ceiling installation, to our GORGEOUS chuppah, to our unreal bouquets and boutonnieres, our florals are something I will never get over. Just unbelievable. Hire her right away to have your floral dreams come true! Worth every penny.

FROM LIZ JOBSE, BRIDE: Carly was SO great to work with. I found her via instagram and immediately fell in love with everything about her floral design style. From our first phone call to the wedding day everything went very smoothly. She is easy going and super sweet. The payment/billing was also very easy. Now the florals were AMAZING - I was blown away when they arrived on our wedding morning. I had given Carly general colors and a couple specific flowers/greens but I told her for the most part she could have creative freedom and I am so happy with how all the florals turned out. I am still getting compliments about my bridal bouquet 5 months later. She clearly has a passion for what she does and it shows. Highly recommend!

FROM RACHEL SENNER, BRIDE: CARLY IS A WIZARD. She made my wildest flower dreams come true. I told her colors, feel, and some of my favorite flowers and it’s like she reached in my head and pulled out EXACTLY what I was thinking. Everything was GORGEOUS, exactly the mood I was going for, and BEYOND my wildest dreams. HIRE HER. You will be so happy with the result.

FROM TAYLOR GABLE, BRIDE: I am so thankful for the Thurman & Fig team for making my wedding flower dreams come true. I was very specific in what I wanted; long green garlands down the center of my long farm tables, large white flowers with greenery for the bouquets, and some wildflowers in my antique collection of blue glasses bottles throughout the tables. They took all of my requests and made the most perfect display. Everyone was in awe of the beauty of everything. I definitely recommend Thurman & Fig for your next wedding or event!

FROM LINDSAY PETRICK, BRIDE: Carly and her team helped create our vision for our wedding. She tapped into our style/sensibilities. She and her team collaborated with us and created the edgy/glam/french romantic look we were going for. She was detailed oriented and made time to go over every little detail of what we like and don't like. I was blown away when I walked into the reception room and saw all the tables set up. It was stunning! And our table was so gorgeous! I can't thank her and her team enough!

FROM HAYDEN ROSSMAN, BRIDE: After searching on Instagram and online for a florist, I emailed several to inquire further. Carly @ Thurman & Fig was the first to respond and we immediately scheduled time to connect. After the first few minutes of our conversation, my mom and I knew that Carly/Thurman & Fig would be perfect (and it is usually not like us to make a decision before vetting hundreds of options, ha). Carly is SO warm and genuine, has absolutely amazing style and showed her expert knowledge, accommodation, and design ideas right from the start, through the end of the event. On top of her personable and knowledgeable demeanor, we learned she had previous Anthropologie styling experience and knew it would be a perfect match. From start to finish our experience with Carly was everything we could have hoped for and more. Her communication is top knotch (which is so important and sometimes underrated in the wedding industry) and she made us feel 1000% confident in what the finished product would be. And OH MY GOSH the finished products were out of this world. When Carly & team walked into the hotel with the flowers, all other vendors in the room audibly gasped. They were the most beautiful florals I had ever seen put together and it somehow kept getting better from there. Carly and team put together absolutely stunning table-scapes (and did some on the spot improv to use decor we had brought in new ways) and an absolutely stunning smilax wall. Wowwowow we already thought the venue was incredible and Thurman & Fig brought this to the next level. We are so grateful we got to work with you; thank you, thank you, thank you.

FROM DEVIN SHERWOOD, BRIDE: Words cannot express how in awe I was of all of my wedding florals from Carly. Carly is super talented and fulfilled all of my wildest wedding dreams! She was great to work with, offering to look at my Pinterest boards for inspiration, which was so helpful because it can be hard to describe in words what you envision. Carly also offered her own great recommendations and helped me choose an option for my centerpieces that fit my budget, but still worked perfectly with my theme! Florals can definitely be expensive, but Carly was willing to work with me and figure out what was most important to me and where I may be able to cut some costs. Carly was also willing to do drop off in two different locations (on a crazy Navy football traffic day no less!) since the guys were getting ready at an Airbnb in downtown Annapolis, and the girls got ready at the venue in Edgewater. It could not have been easier! Everything exceeded my expectations, and it was apparent that Carly has an awesome artistic eye, no detail was overlooked. Carly even left a sweet handwritten thank you note in the bridal suite, which really drove home that I had picked a great vendor. My wedding felt perfectly romantic and ethereal and I could not have achieved that without Carly's help!

FROM ALLISON PECKETT, BRIDE: We were in a pinch after another florist went MIA. Carly and her team quickly jumped in and brought our wedding vision to life. She was such a pleasure to work with- was extremely responsive, professional and helpful in helping make our vision come to life! The day of our wedding we looked around and were in awe of the way she transformed our venue into the warm and moody setting we had imagined. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone moving forward! Beautiful florals!!

FROM LIZ LAUBAUCH, BRIDE: Carly and her team are so incredibly talented! From just a few phone calls and emails they turned my vision into a reality with the most beautiful flowers! I could not have asked for a better florist to work with, Carly is simply amazing. Hiring her was one of the BEST decisions I made and I would recommend her to anyone!!

FROM JENN HENSLER,  BRIDE: Words can not describe my level of gratitude for what Carly brought to our wedding. Everyone including myself  were completely blown away when we walked into the venue. The simple yet intricate greens I had asked for the tables were absolutely stunning and my bouquet was hands down the most beautiful I have ever seen. Its all in the details and detail is what Thurman and Fig brings your event. Well worth every penny! Thank you infinitely Carly!

FROM CAROLINE, BRIDE: Carly and her team were literally a dream team for my wedding weekend. I had a two day wedding- Indian wedding Friday and American wedding Saturday. The style and colors of these days could not have been more opposite. Carly absolutely nailed my vision for both days. She really steps out of the box and gives you arrangements that aren't cookie-cutter that you see at every other wedding. Bright and colorful Friday and neutrals with greenery for Saturday. All the arrangements, I loved more than what was in my head going into the weekend. She did a greenery chandelier over our dance floor that was so dreamy. I got SO many compliments on everything. She is just so creative and has such a good eye and she's so easy to work with. I would recommend Carly to everyone who needs a florist!

FROM KERRY CONNELLY, BRIDE: Carly is literally the Michelangelo of floral design. Like most brides, I had a specific vision for my wedding flowers despite having limited knowledge of flowers and floral design. After just one conversation with Carly, I knew I was in the best hands possible. From the very beginning, I knew I could trust Carly's expertise and amazing creative vision and was not even remotely surprised when, with minimal direction, she created the most beautiful floral arrangements for our ceremony and reception that perfectly captured the aesthetic I had in mind. In addition to being a creative genius, Carly is an absolute joy to work with. She's extremely professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated, and her passion and energy are contagious. I couldn't recommend Thurman & Fig more highly!

FROM LAUREN HAMMETT, BRIDE:  Thurman and Fig was amazing! The flowers were gorgeous, prettier than I could imagine and Carly was amazing to work with. The flowers were unique and I am still receiving compliments on them. I highly recommend Thurman and Fig!

FROM MEG LUCKS, LUCK & LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY: There is so much love, thought, and beauty in Thurman & Fig's florals. Carly and her team love their clients, and love the service they are providing. This love spurs these gorgeous floral creations that make me want to just stare at them all day long. Carly has such an eye and an understanding for what you're dreaming up and for me, she knew what I wanted for our event more than I did. I told her what I was thinking and the day of, she provided florals that went above and beyond my dreams. 

FROM IAN JARED BELL, IAN BELL PHOTOGRAPHY: Working with T&F was nothing short of a dream. Carly’s creative spark and attention to detail are highly evident in her work. A wedding client of mine utilized her services and her arrangements made for absolutely stunning photographs. I even photographed the wedding rings with her arrangements because they were simply immaculate! While skill and talent are extremely important, Carly makes it a point to go a step further with her distinct artistic flare and warm, personable service. I can’t wait to work with her again!

FROM JESSIE HEWITT, BRIDE: I have to pinch myself when I think about how perfect my wedding was, I know all brides say that but I truly felt that we had the most flawless day. We were married along the South River at the beautiful Historic Londontown, Edgewater MD; surrounded by acres of gardens made for a phenomenal backdrop. I wanted to emote a feeling for our guests of effortless elegance. 

Carly was able to help add to that feeling by creating unique clusters of centerpieces on each table using wonderful found glassware, while keeping everything cohesive with our jewel tone reception. She was able to help guide me a direction that allowed us to add personal touches that made it every more special. I will always think fondly of walking through my wedding venue before it started to see how she was able to transform a basic white tent. 

FROM ANNIE CARTER, BRIDE: I can't recommend Carly enough for any bride looking to break free from super traditional and boring flower arrangements. Carly has incredible creativity and her arrangements are like nothing I've seen elsewhere in the area. I also had a specific request to incorporate driftwood into my beach wedding decor, and she delivered above and beyond. My guests couldn't stop talking about how unique the center pieces were! Better yet, she is an all-around kind and friendly person. Carly's on her way to becoming a renowned florist in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

FROM SUSAN CARTER, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE: When I walked up that ramp and looked into that tent, and saw the tables with your driftwood arrangements, my jaw just dropped. It was by far the most beautiful and ORIGINAL setting I have ever seen.  When Annie and I discussed the arrangements and how we pictured driftwood with white and green , we thought,' Oh, there will be driftwood stuck in here and there, or the flowers will be stuck in driftwood...not really knowing what to expect.  Oh my !  Your creativity came through!  I cannot stop thinking about how gorgeous and unique each table was, with the driftwood logs, leaves, lanterns, votives, flowers, etc etc.  I hope you were able to get pictures of each and every table. And I hope Angie Moon got some pictures of the tables.  I know Annie was just as impressed as I was.

FROM MARIAM MULDER, BRIDE: Carly was absolute dream to work with. She captured my vision immediately and was so easy to talk to! My wedding was very short notice yet she was still able to set up a Pinterest board for me, kept me updated on what she thought, and deliver beyond beautiful end products! She did such an excellent job on the flowers and greenery I had! My favorite part was that with out me telling her I was marrying a South African (at least I don't remember telling her) she had, unbeknownst to me, incorporated a protea into the bridal bouquet. The protea is the national flower of South Africa. It was such a beautiful discovery on the wedding day! Thank you again Carly!"

FROM SUSAN BAILEY, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE: I want to thank you for the absolutely beautiful flowers that you prepared for my daughter's wedding. They were more lovely than we ever dreamed that they would be. We will be recommending you to anyone that needs floral arrangements.

FROM ERIN BAILEY, BRIDE: The flowers were GORGEOUS and Carly was very flexible with both a short timeline and a small budget. She was very responsive to emails and fit our wedding into her already booked schedule. I couldn't have asked for more!

FROM JULIANNE WOJAY, MOTHER OF GROOM: I just wanted to tell you how gorgeous your arrangements and bouquets were for Paul and Kerry’s wedding. Guests complemented the simple elegance, and marveled over the creative centerpieces. Your talent really made a special day even more special!

FROM EMILY BRODERICK, BRIDE: Carly was awesome to work with and provided the most gorgeous flowers for my wedding. Luckily for me, we were able to do all correspondence via email. I sent her my idea and I had been obsessed with the @thurmanandfig Instagram so was confident to just let her do her thing. Everything was within budget and stunning.
