Welcome to Wilde Rose
Hand crafted, bespoke blooms for classically timeless weddings and events across the greater DC area and beyond...
Hello! I'm Carmen.
Gardener. Creative. Dreamer. Perfectionist.
Lover of the good and the beautiful.
Together with my husband Brandon, we have founded a little floral design studio on the outskirts of Hagerstown, Maryland. My career in floristry began over ten years ago and I continue to learn something new every day. We've been honored to be a part of some truly meaningful and beautiful events, really some of the most special moments in people's lives. This is an honor we don't take lightly, and we promise to deliver all of our very best, every single time. We are passionate about the pursuit of excellence in all things and making sure no detail, however small, is overlooked.
I bet you've been dreaming of this day for a long time, so please hit that contact button and we'll get this conversation started. I can't wait to meet you!
"We were so grateful to have found Carmen for our wedding! She created beautiful florals and went above and beyond for us (if she didn’t have something she found it or offered to build it). She responded to emails promptly and was very professional yet it felt like talking with a friend."
"As a wedding planner who works with tons of vendors daily, I can say that Carmen at Wilde Rose is amongst one of the best!
The attention to detail to help us achieve the look we were going for was incredible."
- Priyanna @ Mahani Events
"I knew when I saw the flowers she’d arranged for my sister’s wedding that she had to do the same for mine! Carmen goes above and beyond in her efforts to create exactly what you want. She took a few of the ideas I had and put her own beautiful twist to them, creating the loveliest flowers I’ve ever seen."
"Carmen is awesome!! She made the BEST floral arrangements for my wedding. She captured exactly what I had in mind and they were absolutely stunning!"

"Thoughtful listening. Gorgeous, inspired design. Careful execution. And very, very kind. We could not have had a better experience for my daughter's January wedding. It was beyond lovely!"
"Carmen was so easy to work with. She had a very quick response time, reasonable pricing, and was open to all of our ideas."
In my pursuit to find the best of what nature has to offer, I often find myself gathering home-grown blooms from my garden and wandering through the woods doing a bit of foraging here and there. Mainly though, I love to support my local farmer friends who work so hard to grow amazing and beautiful blooms. These locally grown, in-season flowers are at the heart of my designs and always leave a lasting impression due to their quality, fragrance, and general delightfulness. However, since our climate doesn't support growing every beautiful bloom out there, we also support farms from farther away.
We also strongly believe that your wedding day flowers should be as fresh as you are, so we don't offer faux floral services at this time.
Every wedding is uniquely different and beautiful because your story is too...and your flowers should help to tell that story. Here at Wilde Rose, much thought and planning go into the selection of each and every wedding flower palette and design, no two are exactly the same.
