Meet our Team
Founder Sophie frequently finds her heart ready to burst with the beauty in nature and humanity that surrounds her. Working with flowers is her outlet. She's entranced by the natural grace, whimsy and wildness of the flowers. She believes that the passions, spirit and visions of her clients should be the driving force in the design process.
Having studied floral design under some of the country's most celebrated florists, Sophie fuses her own nature-inspired style with classic design principals to create her signature, lush, loose & garden-style pieces.
Sophie and her husband Mike have four children and a backyard full of flowers.
Director of Operations + Garden Manager Erica has a background in organic farming and sustainability from her time living and working on The Big Island, Hawaii. In addition to designing flowers, she manages the Sophie + Co cutting garden which allows us to incorporate heirloom & home grown flower varieties into our designs. Erica brings a background in customer service and finance to the mix and manages the behind-the-scenes details of the studio. Erica hand dyes silk, makes potpourri and weaves macrame. She has the kindest & most open, down-to-earth soul. To know Erica is to love her.
Production Manager Charlotte first partnered with Sophie at Ruppert Sisters Pumpkins, a pumpkin patch and roadside stand. The sisters have been working together ever since. Charlotte's career in landscape construction management equipped her with the ability to bring written plans and drawings to beautiful life. She manages the execution of our events with rigorous attention to detail and timing and she leads the set up team with warm professionalism. Charlotte is grounded and has a knack for lifting up those around her. She and her husband have a beautiful baby girl.
Stylist Becca moved with her husband, Mike, to DC from New England in 2015 shortly after their twins were born. In New England, Becca ran Petal Floral Design, and was named one of the top floral designers in the country by Martha Stewart Weddings. After her babies were born, Becca took a step back to focus on family. She met Sophie in the most serendipitous of circumstances and joined the team as a stylist, designer and brand photographer. Becca has a zest for life and joyful enthusiasm that are irresistible. When she isn't at the flower studio, you can find Becca photographing families and children. See her portfolio here.
