The Sweet Root ladies are some of my most favorite people. They are so creative, so fun, so welcoming and warm. Every bit of the process was fun and they could not be more helpful. I was so happy for every bit of working with them for our big day. The flowers were seriously incredible. The photographs captured so many of those special moments that we never even caught on the day! I cannot recommend them enough!

The girls who work there are amazing to work with. They totally got my vision and made it come true. They customized a plan based on my pinterest that was exactly what I wanted. They were experts about the types of florals and design that would work for the time of year and venue. Their designs are so unique and really different from typical wedding flowers.

I chose to use Sweet Root Village as it was one of the florists listed in the Morrison House Elopement Package. I am so glad I chose them. We worked with Lauren and she has an incredibly bubbly and friendly personality but takes her job very seriously and is incredibly passionate about it. We had an in-person meeting where she was very attentive and took excellent notes when I showed her pictures of what I wanted. Lauren and Rachel's passion for what they do came out in their work. My bouquets, alter garland, and dining room centerpieces turned out more beautifully than I imagined. My wedding was in October 2015 and I had a few unusual color requests such as blue thistles paired with champagne roses, leucadendron for a red accent, succulents, and light orange roses. When I saw the bouquets, boutonnieres, and the BEAUTIFUL garland and flowers draped over the door for the alter, I was floored. Everything turned out more beautifully than I imagine. I wanted simple centerpieces so I requested of birch branches in water for the dining room. Lauren recommended using branches with red berries to add a pop of color. Again, it turned out beautifully and better than I imagined.

We booked flowers one year in advance. Lauren was incredibly flexible when I would randomly call and make requests to change things. She was happy to make the changes and also made recommendations when I asked her opinion. She was very prompt in providing a contract and subsequent updated contracts when I made changes. I felt that I received a lot of personalized attention from these two and would absolutely recommend them for your wedding or special event.

Rachel and Lauren (in particular Lauren) were fabulous to work with. Our wedding was in the fall and in terms of flowers I wanted rich jewel toned autumnal colors, lots of greenery/vines, and a ton of flowers---Sweet Root Village more than delivered! The ceremony and dancing took place in a gorgeous clear tent, and in the tent I wanted to have jewel toned flowers dripping over a large 20 ft. boxwood wall as the backdrop to the ceremony. What they created was stunning! It deserves to be in a magazine! In addition to the boxwood wall-they draped the antique crystal chandeliers in the tent with vines, which helped to really created a gorgeous garden for us to get married in and dance the night away in. In terms of the bouquets, they used the most beautiful flowers in perfect jewel toned colors. The bouquets were a little deconstructed (as requested)--very organic looking. Each bouquet was wrapped with a blue jewel toned velvet ribbon (mine was wrapped with an ivory velvet ribbon). The bouquets were the perfect size. I specifically asked that they not be too big. I didn't want them to block anyone's dress. In addition to the bouquets, they also created a gorgeous floral collar for our English Mastiff to wear, that was so beautiful, she didn't want to take it off! The reception space (which was a ballroom built in the early 1920s with gorgeous chandeliers) was filled with crystal candelabras that Sweet Root Village found especially for our wedding, and they paired them with tall tapers and tea candles to create the most romantic glow. The head table was long and had flowers and greenery cascading down the middle of the table, up the candelabras, and then down the ends of the table to the floor. It was beautiful. The table arrangements on the surrounding round tables in the ballroom were beautiful dark jewel toned blooms that branched out organically from the the low vessel they were nestled in. Bottom Line- Sweet Root Village is amazing. Book them now!

Lauren and the Sweet Root team were absolutely wonderful. Finding a florist was hands down the most stressful part of the vendor process for me. I felt that nobody was really listening to me and that the quotes we were receiving were so high I was beginning to feel that I would really have to compromise on my vision for the flowers. This was until I found Sweet Root, meeting Lauren for the first time I was immediately at ease and could tell that she understood what I wanted. We had a small miscommunication in our final coordination call and ended up having that a little later then we should but Lauren worked late into the evening to make sure that I understood everything that she was planning prior to placing the order. The final product was breathtaking, the venue, National Museum of Women in the Arts, is such a beautiful space that it was important the flowers compliment and not detract from the space. The result was perfect and I could not have been happier. It was also very important to me that the flowers get donated to the nursing home where my grandmother was, some florists thought this was an over the top request while Sweet Root thought it was great and were more then accommodating.

Working with Lauren at Sweet Root Village was such a blast! She is so creative and wonderful to work with that it made the overwhelming task of picking decor/flowers such a breeze! She was always receptive to our thoughts and ideas and was able to take our small nuggets of creativity and blow them out into something beautiful. Their flowers, centerpieces and decor (including a handmade chuppah) made the event fabulous - everyone is still talking about it!

Sweet Root Village was incredible to work with - they completely understood my vision and were able to pull together al my different ideas into a cohesive look. Throughout the planning process they were very responsive and flexible. For example, adjusting the number of bouquets needed, suggesting alternative options if I was concerned about impact value compared to cost. I would absolutely recommend SRV to any couple planning a wedding. They were a completely easy, stress-free vendor to deal with, and are extremely talented and reasonably priced.

Sweet Root Village did the flowers for our wedding at the Decatur House, and they were absolutely amazing! They worked within our budget, but still managed to create centerpieces that fit our vision perfectly and looked like we had spent a million bucks on them. So many of our guests commented that the displays looked like something out of a magazine! They were also very easy to work with, and adding items (e.g., a beautiful garland for the entrance of our venue, and an adorable crown for our flower girl) was a snap, even very close to the wedding date. Everything was just perfect -- I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Meh. I really think I could have done WAY better when picking a florist, but Sweet Root's services came with the package we booked through our wedding site. Some flowers were part of the package deal, but I wanted more, so I went to their studio to pick what I wanted. Day of, and it was weak to say the least. I'd have thought the additional money I spent would have gotten a LOT more roses than what arrived the day of my wedding. Honestly, in hindsight, I could have just got the flowers myself and put out the few roses they sprinkled around the event and saved myself TONS of money. Live and learn I guess. Sigh.
