Few floral designers can say they were named the best in their city a mere six months after opening their studio—but Philadelphia’s Sullivan Owen can. That was in 2011; today Owen can also call herself one of Martha Stewart’s Top 25 Florists in the world, as well as one of Harper’s Bazaar’s Top Wedding Florists in the United States.
These kudos translate to more than a finishing touch for any event; Owen’s blooms often take center stage—and her skills as an event designer extend beyond centerpieces as well. Owen is Philadelphia’s go-to for charity events, galas, and celebrations of all kinds, but she admits that weddings are her favorite—and no destination is too far-flung. From bridal bouquet masterpieces and creative boutonnieres to floral flourishes adorning walls, chairs, and tables (of course), her chic, unique creations leave clients and guests wowed.
As one of the industry’s most sought-after editorial floral stylists and with a penchant for locally-sourced seasonal flowers and foliage, Owen has collaborated with top brands, including Hermès, Tiffany & Cp., Jimmy Choo, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Anthropologie, Free People, Williams-Sonoma, Design Sponge, and more.
But you don’t have to plan a celebration to enjoy Owen’s impeccable designs—her studio delivers stunning arrangements large and small throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs.
