About Steve

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 showroom 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 travelled 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.

Testimonials

I wanted to make sure that you all received how happy we were! It was beyond our expectations- the flowers and arrangements made the atmosphere of the reception so elegant and beautiful! We can't say enough about the magic that you create! Thank you for your talents, patience and care that you put into making this day so special!

I wanted to let you all know that I was overwhelmed with the arrangements on Saturday. I know you all do great work, and it’s why I’ve come to trust you all for big and important events where I need a “wow factor” but this exceeded my expectations. The attention to detail was incredible. The driftwood pieces and the clay pots were spectacular.

Watered Garden did the flowers for our ceremony and reception. My husband and I were extremely pleased how all of our arrangements turned out. I gave our vision to Watered Garden and they surpassed any idea I had in mind. From the first moment that we met with Steve and his team I fell in love with his style and his poise with us as customers.

The team at Watered Garden truly achieved our vision of elegance for our June 1, 2013 wedding at the Carolina Inn. They were not only extremely attentive and responsive, but accommodating, respectful of our budget and mindful of our taste. Our guests continue to praise the florals, which definitely served to enhance our reception decor.

I described and showed pictures of types of flower/bouquets I liked. They understood, had further ideas for improvement and made it all happen. So kind, professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend them. Wonderful job. I was even more pleased than expected. The flowers were prettier than I had imagined!

Kate

Steve, Deb and Katrina are the best florist team! I corresponded with all from over 8 hours away, they took my color scheme and came up with floral combinations that fit perfectly with my vision when i had no clue where to begin! The flowers were gorgeous and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend them!

Tiffany
