Lauren and Rachel transformed our beautiful, majestic but cold space into a warm, indoor-meets outdoor space. It was exactly what we wanted, but the way they executed the flowers, greenery and custom bar were beyond our dreams. They captured our style perfectly. The bouquets, particularly my bridal bouquet were not just beautiful but high quality ... my bouquet lasted over a week even after not being in water the entire wedding day! On top of that, they are so easy and pleasant to work with - professional and responsive but warm, affable, and the right amount of laid back. I would recommend them to anyone without question.

It's hard for me to write a review because I can't put into words how thankful we are that we found them!!!!
-Lauren and Rachel (and the rest of the SRV team!) are SUPER talented, sweet, creative flower geniuses
-The floral arrangements they did for the bouquets, the church, and our reception were even more beautiful than we could have hoped! They were gorgeous- with lovely textures, rich colors, beautiful combinations of flowers.
-When we walked into our reception space, our jaws hit the floor. They transformed an already beautiful space and made it truly magical.
-They are extremely responsive and we had a really great time working with them.
-We LOVE their work!! We loved it on their blog and website, and we loved it SO much more at our own event. They really exceeded expectations!

Sweet Root Village did a stunning job at my wedding at Murray Hill in Leesburg, VA. From the early stages of wedding planning, they were extremely easy-going, patient, understanding, open-minded, and listened to all my ideas. The entire team was ALWAYS positive and I can truly tell they love what they do. They understood my vision including every detail which allowed me to focus on other aspects of my wedding. Our floral arrangements on our wedding day were perfect! It was everything I wanted and more; whimsical, rustic, yet classic and sophisticated. They have a knack for making sure that the entire space looked cohesive and finished. I would highly recommend Sweet Root Village!

I cannot adequately describe how incredibly amazing the team at Sweet Root Village is. They made my wedding the most perfect day, and took so much stress off my shoulders. From our initial consultation to the day-of, the team at Sweet Root Village was always so responsive, thoughtful, positive, and just plain excited for us. They provided the decor at our wedding, including the most gorgeous flowers/greenery on our arbor and the most stunning centerpieces. Their artistic vision is truly one-of-a-kind, and I was so impressed by their ability to create the most unique and jaw dropping pieces. I still have wedding guests telling me what a beautiful sight it was, and that is all thanks to Sweet Root Village. What I also love is that Rachel, Lauren, and Rachele become your best friends throughout the process - they are the sweetest, funniest, and most genuine girls, and it was truly an honor to work with them for our big day. Their team is also so professional and lovely - in particular, our parents were amazed at how efficiently they took down the decor at the end of the night as vendors were packing up. Seriously, there are not enough wonderful things to say about all of them. I promise you that choosing Sweet Root Village for your big day is the best decision you'll make!

Sweet Root Village worked with us by providing the flowers and photography. Both Lauren and Rachel did a phenomenal job in executing what I had envisioned for my wedding day. I highly recommend these talented ladies to anyone. We are still getting compliments on our photos and flowers!!

Our first consultation was great. I went in knowing what direction I was going for as far as colors for my flowers along with Pinterest photos. They took my vision and made them my own and in the end did an amazing job!! The flowers were perfect!

Lauren was the only photographer on site and seemed to have captured every moment beautifully. She was very professional, and very organized. We went over the pictures we wanted her to capture prior to our wedding day and it helped put me at ease that she knew what shots I wanted. She was able to manage getting our large family together and helped us stick to our schedule.

We had originally planned on having our ceremony outside, however it was raining that day and so plan B was implemented very quickly with no issues. Their staff set up everything indoors for our ceremony and then rearranged everything back accordingly for the reception. Everything ran smoothly. The flowers were gorgeous, luscious, and vibrant and the pictures are amazing. If you are looking for a professional, crazy talented, and creative bunch – these are your girls!

I really liked working with Rachel and Lauren of SRV for your flowers and reception decor. They were responsive over email and the online contract program they use was intuitive, and made revisions quick and easy.

I recommend driving out to their warehouse and talking face-to-face. I had been putting labels under photos on a Pinterest board. It wasn't until we discussed the Board in person that they realized why it was so scattered: some things I pinned because I love them and others I pinned because I want to stay away from them.

Once we had this sorted, I felt confident they could deliver. And they did! The bouquets were (expensive but) SPECTACULAR and many guests commented that they'd never seen such beautiful and unique arrangements. I opted for candles for the entire reception -- no flowers -- and that, too, was quite special. My only caution is that the room got hot as the night wore on and at one point I looked around and noticed that two long tables had blew them out ;(

The set-up and clean-up crews were on time and got the job done.

Overall, I have no suggestions for improvement. Great vendor!

Sweet Root Village is phenomenal. After one look at their portfolio I made the easy decision to hire them as our wedding day florist. For our wedding flowers I was hoping for a traditional (yet whimsical) and classic (without being stuffy) look and the SRV made the vision come to life! During our consultation I had no idea how to describe my vision, but the SRV team listened and were able to translate my rough descriptions into the most beautiful sketch to give me an idea of what the arrangements could look like. It was incredible--they just understood! The SRV team asked the right questions and were able to offer recommendations that tied in perfectly with the rest of the wedding day look. There is no way that I could have made the decisions without their help! The team worked within my budget to deliver the most beautiful reception arrangements, flowers for the wedding party, and the showstopper--my bridal bouquet (it had artichokes!). I can’t say enough great things about Sweet Root Village!

Both Rachel and Lauren were creative and thoughtful in putting together conceptual ideas for our wedding ceremony. From our first meeting, they put us at ease and were willing to work through our budget with some beautiful and creative ideas. Since this was our first time getting married, they brought forward ideas and variations and showed a LOT of creativity and style in putting together a special look for our wedding. Since we are a same sex couple, they showed a tremendous amount of thoughtfulness in just just delivering a "cookie cutter" approach to any wedding, but something that reflected our own personal style. I would highly recommend and think their local connection as well as personal hands on approach should make any couple feel GREAT about their big day. They exceeded our expectations when it came time to final delivery - it was FLAWLESS and left us completely at ease during our big day. Thank you so much!
