We went into the planning process for our wedding searching for a vendor that could accommodate our clean, masculine aesthetic. After viewing many options, we were inspired by the versatility of Sweet Root Village. Lauren & Rachel took our ideas and made our dreams into reality. They are INCREDIBLY responsive and always made us feel like their number one priority.

Lauren and Rachel have been a joy to work with from start to finish! Even in the midst of their busy wedding seasons and growing business, they made us feel like our photos and flowers were their top priority. They really wanted to get to know us as individuals and as a couple so our flowers and photos were perfect reflections of us. They truly love what they do, and it can be infectious despite the stresses of wedding planning. Their work--both photography and floral design--is exquisite, and done with lots of love.

Sweet Root Village provided the best experience we could have dreamed of. They do amazing work and are great at capturing moments during the wedding itself; however, their best work is done with the portraits. SRV did both engagement and wedding photography for us, and each time made sure to get a lot of different shots with varied scenery. Everything came out better than we could have imagined! Their work is definitely unique and could easily be featured in blogs, magazines, etc. Everyone we met with the company was willing to help us and SRV overall is extremely easy to work with. We can't say enough good things about Sweet Root Village!

Sweet Root Village did the bridal party flowers for my wedding. As I had a fairly limited flower vocabulary, I need a great deal of help in translating my vision for my bouquet. Sweet Root Village absolutely nailed it, turning my "this, not that" and "more like this than that" directions into an absolutely beautiful arrangement. They are so artistic and lovely, perfectly capturing my classic with a twist style. They also made the corsages and boutonnieres to match perfectly!

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.

Sweet Root Village was the florist included with my wedding package at The Morrison House. The ladies are very creative and the floral arrangements provided for the dinner, reception, and boquets were beautiful, and was aligned with our winter wedding theme, the arrangements provided added a burst of color.
