Perfection. The beautiful flowers that Sweet Root Village provided for my client's wedding this weekend at River Farm were unmatchable. From the centerpieces to the floral chandelier that SRV crafted to the extra little things that they did to ensure that the event space was truly something that was breathtakingly beautiful. I am so pleased with the quality of their work, professionalism, flexibility and great attitude! So ecstatic that I have found such a great florist to recommend to all of my brides!

What can I say about Lauren and Rachel other than that they are absolutely amazing?? I was a picky bride and carefully selected my vendors after interviewing multiple companies. As soon as I met Lauren, I knew that SRV was the one for me! They have an amazing aesthetic, are friendly, down to earth, knowledgeable, trendy, and best of all use locally sources flowers. On the day of my wedding, they not only nailed it, but actually surpassed the vision I had. When I saw my reception, I literally gasped!! Do not look any further, you are in great hands with Lauren and Rachel!!!

These women are the BEST. From our first meeting with them, we knew we wanted to work with them. We worked with both Lauren and Rachel. We discussed our style with them and they encouraged us to send them ideas of what we wanted. We changed what we wanted in our contract several times and they were quick to make updates and incredibly understanding about us wanting to stay within a budget (and it changed toward the end).

I was blown away when I walked into the bridal suite at our venue and saw my bouquet and the bridesmaid bouquets. It was exactly the style I wanted and the flowers they picked were beautiful and the colors were perfect. The colors looked amazing with the navy blue bridesmaid dresses. At other weddings with other florists, the flowers can look generic and not special, but Lauren and Rachel are so good at what they do and it was unlike anything I'd ever seen. We had a big piece hanging on the barn where our ceremony was and it was stunning (and I'm sure not easy to hang up). Our ceremony pictures look astounding because of those flowers. PLUS, they did our centerpieces and we received compliments on how beautiful the flowers were.

I highly highly recommend Sweet Root Village as a florist for any couple getting married!

Lauren at Sweet Root Village was an indispensable part of our wedding planning; she did so much more than just photography and became a trusted advisor in our plans. The photography was excellent; we felt very comfortable working with Lauren, and she has a great eye for capturing the good moments. On the floral side, we had beautiful bouquets and boutonierres made up as well.

Lauren & Mary did all the flowers for my bridal party and ceremony/reception. They both were extremely helpful from my initial visit in helping to create a vision of what would look best for my wedding in the woods. They were both helpful in working with my budget and even with cutting back and re-doing some ideas - for example, using some flower arrangements for both the ceremony and head table. The flower arrangements were incredible and fit perfectly to my style and far better than I could have hoped! Payments were very easy to do over the phone, as well. As for the price, overall it was expected for what I asked, but I think it was far more creative, organic, unique, and natural looking in comparison to what others were offering with bland arrangements for the about the same prices.

These girls were fabulous! They are insanely creative and they made a site visit just to get inspiration (and to help me choose decor ideas). I do not think my wedding could have been more beautiful or more beautifully photographed. It definitely had a unique, organic look to it and I have gotten so many compliments!
Photography was also beautifully done. I got all the shots I wanted and Lauren also threw in her own creative energy to create some shots I didn't even think of. There were so many great shots it was very difficult when I sat down to create the photo book and had to pick about 30 that would fit!

These girls were absolutely fantastic to work with! My now husband and I went in to meet them in their adorable studio where they have freshly baked cookies waiting for us. They listening to us and really HEARD our ideas. They also communicated clearly with us and showed us pictures to ensure that they understood every aspect of the wedding. They were very attention detailed and they got very excited about the wedding which really helped us get excited as well. They were able to revise the budget multiple times whenever we needed it to be fixed and rearranged, even up to the week before!

On the day of the event, the venue looked perfect. They transformed an ordinary barn into a beautiful magical place. It was stunning. All the details! Truly breathtaking.

These girls are artistic, lovely and beautiful people to work with. I 100% recommend them.

We heard of Sweet Root Villiage through a mutual friend. We met Lauren, our photographer, in Occoquan for our engagement photos. We loved her work so much we had to have her back to do our wedding photos.

Lauren is a gifted artist. Her photography is astoninshing and she captured the biggest day of our lives in beautiful photos. She is so easy to work with for both kids and adults. Sweet Root Village is an ecellent value for the quality of their work.

We expect to see more of them as our family grows and we return for family photos. Thank you Lauren and SRV.

I heard about Lauren at Sweet Root Village through a work colleague. My fiance and I were in the middle of interviewing photographers for our wedding and added her to the list of people to talk to. But after our first meeting, that list quickly disappeared! She was different from anyone we had spoken to and we just knew that she would add a fresh, exciting energy to our photos and overall event! We were right and couldn't be happier with our decision to hire her and Sweet Root Village! She had ideas outside of the box for our pictures and we have a lot of great shots to choose from. In fact here it is 9 months later and I still haven't narrowed it down on what we should print! We have over 600 photos and love the majority of them. It's a great problem to have! I would highly recommend hiring them for photos and we used them for last minute for flowers as well. I had no intention on getting flowers since we were married in a beautiful outdoor location. But seeing the displays in their office and photos, we decided to get some.

I heard about Lauren at Sweet Root Village through a work colleague. My fiance and I were in the middle of interviewing photographers for our wedding and added her to the list of people to talk to. But after our first meeting, that list quickly disappeared! She was different from anyone we had spoken to and we just knew that she would add a fresh, exciting energy to our photos and overall event! We were right and couldn't be happier with our decision to hire her and Sweet Root Village! She had ideas outside of the box for our pictures and we have a lot of great shots to choose from. In fact here it is 9 months later and I still haven't narrowed it down on what we should print! We have over 600 photos and love the majority of them. It's a great problem to have! I would highly recommend hiring them for photos and we used them for last minute for flowers as well. I had no intention on getting flowers since we were married in a beautiful outdoor location. But seeing the displays in their office and photos, we decided to get some.

Luaren and Sweet Root Village were an absolute pleasure to work with in capturing our special day. During the planning of our wedding I was stationed in upstate NY; Lauren demonstrated unwavering flexibility throughout, willing to meet anytime/anyplace to work out all the details and ensure she captured what I and my bride wanted for our special day. Lauren provided amazingly beautiful flowers for our wedding, reception and for all the family involved including my bride's bouquet. They were a flawless complement to our outdoor wedding. I truly can not say enough about Lauren's superb support and the memories she helped us capture for us on that day! Outstanding professional, person, and would strongly recommend Lauren and Sweet Root Village for any event. Thank you Lauren and Sweet Root for everything!

Wow! As I was going through the above list of ratings, I couldn't help but remember the greatness of working with this professional, responsive, flexible and creative group of people! Worth every penny! After speaking with my daughter and her husband for a while, they completely understood what they wanted in terms of style. Their suggestions were right on target thereby showing that they truly listen to and care about their client. If we had a question, they responded almost instantly. If we had a change of mind on something, they were very accommodating. If we weren't sure about an idea(i.e. place cards), they quickly came to our rescue with suggestions to match the style. But the most amazing point was when they showed up on the day of the wedding with the most beautiful centerpieces and amazing arrangements for the bridal party! Our guests were in awe at the uniqueness and beautiful details. As you can see, I can't say enough. Totally recommend them! Thank you so much Lauren and Rachel!

Lauren and Rachel did the flowers for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the flowers or service. Upon meeting these two lovely ladies I knew we were well taken care of. They were so exited and were able to expand on our vision creating just the right look and feel for our wedding. Working with them was so fun and they quickly responded to any questions, keeping me updated on any progress they made toward our big day. I highly recommend working with Lauren and Rachel, they are very talented and passionate about what they do.

If you read no further, read this: USE THEM!!!! Best people and talent I've met!!!!!!
From the beginning Sweet Root Village had not only been generous, but amazing. I won our engagement session in a competition- and so- even though Rachel wasn't getting paid she went above and beyond on our shoot- even buying and preparing and bringing props to make it vintage and to add an edge (our engagement session was WWII themed).
Well after that, I entered ANOTHER competition from them, and won free make-up for my wedding day (again- so generous). Sarah Patch made the drive out to my home to "try out" the makeup style on her own expense. She is like Van Gogh with a make-up brush. The day of she was on time- and she made me feel and look more beautiful than I could have ever imagined for my wedding day. AND my makeup didn't run when I cried!!! And lasted until the next day.
I hired them for flowers (after how AMAZING they'd been for me). I was very vague giving a very general description that I wanted "wild flowers" yet "classy" with sunflowers for my bouquet, and even more vague for the boutonnieres. And NO roses! And then, last minute I added on flowers for my cake!!! They not only came through, but exceeded EVERY expectation I had for my flowers.
The entire Sweet Root Village staff is kind, understanding, flexible, gracious, and, above all, talented. Even if I hadn't won those free photos and makeup- after seeing what they could do- I would have paid them for it! AND if I ever need photos in the future, I will save up to have them do them. I would trust no one else anymore. If I could have afforded it- they would have planned, decorated, and photographed my entire wedding!!!!
Would I recommend this to a friend? Without a doubt!

Lauren and Rachel are amazing individuals to work with. After sitting down with them and going over our venue and vision for the reception - they ran with it. They designed the centerpieces and the layout for the space and we couldn't have been happier with everything. Even when one of the centerpiece items went missing; they didn't miss a beat - just made do with the materials available. They are extremely capable and able to adjust as issues come up. We knew that once it was in their hands we had absolutely nothing to worry about. Not only do we highly recommend them as wedding planners and decorators but also as genuinely lovely people; their friendship has been a blessing and we are truly fortunate to have had them as a part of our wedding day!

If you are a future bride looking for someone to do your flowers/decor/makeup the company Sweet Root Village, I can not say enough amazing things about! To give them a 5.0 as a score is not sufficient because they deserve 10's across the board!
From the moment I had a consultation with them and shared with them my vision they took it and ran...they were so gracious from the start. Their professionalism was exceptional but what really sold me was their kindness and warmth and the passion they brought to the table as we discussed my ideas. Not to forget, I already could see the incredibly awesome artistic talent they both individually and collectively had. Not only were they able to add to my creativity in areas that I was lacking, they were able to stay within my budget constraints (this was huge to my husband, the frugal one of the two of us)
They have an amazing eye for every little detail, including all that was important to me that I put my heart and entire self into and were able to keep it all perfectly organized. (I am still amazed by this) They executed my wedding decor/flowers ABOVE and BEYOND anything I could imagine. Remembering when I arrived to the venue to see things slowly coming to life truly brings tears to my eyes. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. I've never seen anything quite like it. The compliments were endless, one friend stated "Loved the rustic chic center pieces that you came up with- very under stated yet so elegant." And can I just confess, I was completely obsessed with my bouqet!!

Sarah Patch did an equally remarkable job, with upmost professionalism and also is very sweet! She made two trips to my home for consultations, because of my own indecisiveness as to how I wanted my makeup. The day of the wedding her patience kept me calm as I sat in the makeup chair with people coming at me in all directions. My makeup was flawless and I've never felt more beautiful than I did that day. And more importantly it all stayed intact even after the tears!! She also did my mother's makeup - when I walked in and saw my mom who I already think is beautiful look as amazing as she did brought tears of joys to my eyes!
I highly ecommend SRV to anyone and would use them again 10x over!! We can not thank you ladies enough for helping to make our wedding such a dreamy, surreal, perfect day!

Excerpts from a thank you note to SRV: "Just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic job you did prior to the wedding and the day of. Everything went so smoothly except when we forgot the veil but fortunately you were able to get it to us!
The room was gorgeous and I can't wait to see pictures.
Anyway, thanks for all your patience with me as I argued with the bride and groom and had so many questions to ask and details to run by you. Thanks for telling me to sit down and stop worrying about it (metaphorically, of course!) Lauren, you have great organizational and communication skills, not to mention the execution of the bride's vision for the flowers. You knew just what to do for all those table settings. Rachel, you were also a very sweet, cheerful and calming influence on Saturday and I so appreciate it. And I loved seeing you two whip out those walkie talkies when we had questions or there were "problems." What a relief to know you two competent women would be handling the event.

I'll say it again--the loveliness of the evening exceeded my expectations and it was so fun to see it all come together (like you said it would, Lauren). Thank you, Thank you! And if we have any more daughters marrying, I will have to coordinate the date with YOUR schedules."

We used SRV primarily for day of coordinating and flowers/decorating--worth every penny, and therefore let us relax and enjoy the day as it should be.Knowledgeable, patient, reliable, and professional. I do not know about their knowledge/experience/recommendations with various vendors and venues since we did most of that ourselves before hiring SRV. Highly recommended. Bright future for SRV!

Lauren and Rachel will make your wedding day go exactly how it should. Having seen terribly awkward weddings in the past, I knew I didn't want to have to deal with that on my big day. My sister hired SRV for her wedding and everything was smooth, calm and beautiful. So I hired them as well and had the same results. I did almost all of the planning myself, but its amazing what a huge help these day-of coordinators were. I did not have the time, skills, or experience to make a timeline (down to the 5-minute increments) for the wedding day. Not only did it help me out tremendously but my wedding party, family, and vendors loved that everything felt organized from the start.

I also had the fortunate experience of hiring Thomas Bridgwood as my videographer. You know that a videographer is talented when you barely notice they are there. He did a wonderful job of capturing the fun, loving feel of our wedding and blended perfectly into the background the whole time.

Sweet Root Village is extremely responsive and timely. I remember one night I was getting nervous about how much time was needed in a song for the bridesmaids to walk down the aisle. I emailed Lauren and Rachel for advice, thinking I would get a response in the morning, but instead they emailed me back in 3 minutes. Very attentive to their brides!

I highly recommend using SRV for your wedding. Their professionalism and calm attitude will make your big day wonderful.

I can't even begin to describe how wonderful it was to have these ladies be a part of Chris & I's big day! They are very talented individuals who make an excellent team! When it came to the flowers, I wasn't very picky, I just had a general idea of what I wanted. Lauren took the few things I told her and created the most gorgeous flower bouquets and boutonnieres I have ever seen. She took my idea and magnified it by 1,000 and I couldn't have dreamed up anything better! I have been dreaming of my wedding photos since the day Chris proposed and I instantly thought of Rachel! I know her from college so it was no surprise that she was a blast to have around snapping away! I knew the pictures would turn out fabulous just from seeing her previous work through Sweet Root Village but I couldn't believe how stunning the photos were! She captured the day, the atmosphere and the guests perfectly! These are photos that I will forever cherish. You won't be able to find more down to earth, talented, and wonderful people to be around and work with! They love what they do and they are great at it. I will definitely be inquiring their services again for more memorable photos!

Rachel did our wedding invitations. She did an amazing job. Everyone we sent invites to loved them & said they hadn't seen anything like it before. She was incredibly easy to work with. I had no idea what I wanted & she just shot out ideas until I liked one. Then we were able to work with her over skype, since I live across the country, & we could see what she was doing as she did it so we could give our input. It was great! She's amazing at what she does. I only wish these girls could've done my entire wedding. Too bad I'm in Colorado. But the invitations were a hit. I have one framed & it looks great. So glad Rachel was willing to work with me with so little time & with a bride that didn't even know what she wanted, other than her colour scheme. She's so talented. Wonderful wonderful job!

Rachel and Lauren did an excellent job! We used them for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day. They met with us to find out what style we wanted and they truely captured every important moment with beauty! They were very professional and well organized. We communicated with much ease through emails. They were on time and very flexible with changes and last minute decisions on our part as far as what poses we wanted. They were very creative in the different pictures they took...many things that I wouldn't have thought to tell them. Both girls were extremely friendly and very fun to work with. The day of the wedding they even ventured outside in 110 degree heat to take some pictures after the wedding!

Rachel and her assistant Heather of Sweet Root Village took our wedding photos and truly captured special every moment! From the beginning of our planning to the day-of, Rachel was patient, professional, and thorough. We were blown away by the photo preview and have recently received our full disc of photos. Watching them as a slideshow with family and friends was like experiencing the whole day over again! We are so pleased with our decision and the outcome---we HIGHLY recommend these talented artists. We look forward to working with them for future family portraits and other services too I'm sure. Thanks Sweet Root Village!

We hired Sweet Root Village for day-of coordination and it was the best decision we made for our wedding. They were extremely helpful and met with us multiple times prior to the wedding to make sure they knew every last detail. They were always quick to respond to our emails which was wonderful. They did a great job of making sure that we got to enjoy our wedding. They had been so great in all of our encounters prior to the wedding that we were able to trust them completely to get us through the event. Our wedding ran extremely smoothly and we didn't have to do anything to make it happen. Sweet Root Village really took care of us on our big day and we couldn't be happier with their services. After seeing them in action at our wedding, my sister hired them for hers as well. They are amazing!!

Our wedding ran extremely smoothly and we didn't have to do anything to make it happen. Sweet Root Village really took care of us on our big day and we couldn't be happier with their services. After seeing them in action at our wedding, my sister hired them for hers as well. They are amazing!! Read less

We used Rachel & Lauren for our wedding photos and let me tell you, my photos turned out exactly like I wanted them to. I absolutely love my wedding photos and I am so thankful we hired them for our wedding photography. They also did our flowers which again, were amazing! They worked with my budget and picked the best flowers to give the look I was going for. They also helped me think of ideas for other centerpieces that didn;t include flowers! I cannot thank them enough for their services on our wedding day. Sweet Root Village is AWESOME.

I love Sweet Root Village! I used them for decor and florals in my wedding. When I met with Lauren and Rachel I was so impressed. I felt like I communicated a general vision that I had for my wedding and they totally got it. They showed me photos and even scetched pictures of things that they thought would work for me. I loved how into the details they got! And somehow they managed to capture everything and more than I could have imagined and still stayed well within my budget.

They were also extremely responsive. I always got a response back to an email in a very timely manner.

And they were very flexible. I changed my mind on wedding colors and budget and they sent me a new quote promptly. On top of that they traveled all the way to Fort Valley, Virginia for my wedding. They were on time and set everything up beautifully.

Months after my wedding people still talk about how beautiful it was. I know it was largely due to the beautiful decor and florals by SRV! I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Lauren and Rachel of Sweet Village were amazing and helped our wedding day to be absolutely perfect! We went with Sweet Root Village for our flowers and day-of-wedding coordinating. After looking at several other flower vendors we went with Sweet Root Village because they understood exactly what we wanted, had great attitudes that made it fun to work with them, and they were affordable! Lauren understood perectly that we wanted our flowers to be simple yet with a unique flare. She gave us some great ideas without taking over and created a perfect look for our wedding. All our guests agreed that the flowers were amazing, from the unique and creative center pieces to the flowers linging the aisle to the perfectly assembled bouquets to the arangements on the card and cake table. Her attention to detail and creativity was evident! Lauren and Rachel also coordinated everything the day-of and they were beyond amazing and helpful! Every single thing was taken care of so that we were not worried or stressed at all. Lauren met with us beforehand to go over everything and they were there at the rehearsal to make sure everything was taken care of. The day of the wedding, they were there before I was even awake taking care of things and talking with the other vendors as well as setting up the flowers. I loved having them there to depend on and would recommend them in a heartbeat. Lauren and Rachel of Sweet Root Village are professional, talented, creative, responsive and timely in everything and always follow up. They showcase their love for event planning while allowing the uniqueness of the bride and groom to show through. Sweet Root Village--thank you, thank you, thank you!

I recently coordinated a wedding where Sweet Root Village was providing the flowers. I emailed them a week before the wedding to confirm details and arrival times and they were prompt and cheerful in their responses. On the day of the wedding, they arrived early and got all the flowers where they needed to be way ahead of time. The altar arrangements were very unique and I took note of the special touches they put into their work, like tagging all corsages and even putting the bridesmaids flowers in pretty vases (instead of buckets of water) before the wedding started. These ladies come off as very professional and friendly, and I hope to have a chance to work with them again.

Lauren was wonderful! We hired her on short notice, but that didn't keep her from taking the time to come meet with us, show us examples of her work, and offer all kinds of advice to make our day easier! She is timely, does great work, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
