As one of the longest standing members of the Grace Ormonde family, Amaryllis Floral & Event Design has become Washington D.C.’s most sought-after wedding and event specialist. For more than 25 years, Amaryllis has been catering to upscale clientele, drawing up visions of unique and creative design schemes and executing them to perfection.
Rick Davis became the owner of Amaryllis in 2002, using his award-winning style to transform the company into the success it is today. His signature aesthetic is innovative with a focus on elegance and sophistication; and as an avid gardener himself, Rick’s passion for florals is evident in each event he produces.
“Beauty is at the heart of our business. From a bride’s bouquet or groom’s boutonniere, to a glorious centerpiece or a massive installation – stunning flowers, plants, trees, and greenery are central to what we do. We utilize only the freshest, most lush and stunning florals in original, unique, and extraordinary designs that add to the overall beauty of your occasion.”
Event designer and vice president Christopher Vazquez is the second half of the Amaryllis team with a background that includes theater arts and the restaurant industry – experience that provides greater insight into the world of luxury events and design.
Rick and Christopher’s business partnership extends beyond creating luxury Washington D.C. weddings together, as the two were happily married in October of 2014. From raising various flocks of exotic fowl at their Southern Maryland farm, to tending to their lush vegetable and flower gardens, the couple shares the same passion for their work as they do for their everyday lives together. Rick and Christopher have even grown and harvested many of the specialty flowers used in their weddings and events.
Whether it’s a sleek and modern wedding or an over-the-top ballroom affair filled with lush florals, Amaryllis is dedicated to bringing their clients’ décor dreams to life.
