About Us 

Jeff Johnson spent a lifetime in the Southern California events industry. Jeff’s grandfather owned a flower shop, his Mom owned a chain of shops, and his stepdad and brother managed the famous Mark’s Garden’s in Los Angeles. After years of paying his dues as a freelance floral artist, Jeff co-founded Square Root Designs, one of the premier event design companies in Southern California. He boasted a client base that included the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas; Ritz Carlton, Laguna Niguel; Montage Hotels in Beverly Hills, Laguna Beach and Deer Valley; the St. Regis in Monarch Beach; and several upscale corporate projects in Tokyo.


Jeff sold Square Root after a decade of success in order to return his wife to her beloved Maryland hometown. He launched Blue Vanda Designs in 2012 and quickly became recognized as one of the most innovative and respected designers in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore communities - collaborating with the region’s top wedding planners at dynamic venues such as the:
