Sophie Pyle Ziegler is a woman about town; she runs her own successful media company, Rose Media, and is always at every party you want to go to. I even caught her on a Real Housewives of Potomac episode.
Initially, Sophie and I bonded over our love for reality television and pop culture. When I voted on her Instagram story that Karlie Clausen was more boring than Gigi Hadid, she lol’d and replied they were both boring. After she and Luc got engaged, she DM’d me to let me know she was looking for a florist and asked if I would have a chance to talk flowers with her. Of course I did.
We had our initial consultation via phone and I loved her bubbly, exuberant personality. When she told me she wanted a very classic DC wedding, I told her that I had spent time freelancing in The White House Floral Shop, and that was about as classic as you could get. She loved the Obama’s and was thrilled to have a florist who had also designed for them.
Sophie’s classic, round bouquet was made of snow white peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and phalaenopsis orchids. The edges were finished with touches of hand-guilded greenery.
The next time Sophie and I met, it was for a walk through of her quintessential Georgetown venue - the City Tavern Club. It was the first time I had worked at the club since starting my company and it was the first time Emily Alyssa and I met. Since then both have become two of my favorites!
The morning of Sophie’s wedding, I delivered her bouquet to the hot salon, Karma by Erwin Gomez where I found her bridesmaids in great cheer, lounging and drinking bubbly. The salon is very chic, with discreet individual hair stations for each client (which must be appreciated by DC’s glitterati who just want to have their hair done in peace!) I presented the bouquet to Sophie and she couldn’t have been more gracious.
Congratulations on celebrating your first Anniversary Sophie and Luc! See you on the gram:)
