Sandy was a gem to work with! She was flexible and had wonderful ideas to make our wedding day unique and special. Her flower arrangements were beautiful and lasted quite a while after the wedding. She was professional, met with us twice to discuss plans, and arrived to our venue with plenty of time to set up the arrangements. Her price was also the best we found in town. Although her price was far below other florists we researched, she provided quality service.

Sandy Goodson and Verde Natural Florals are fantastic! My husband and I were recommended by our day of coordinator to Sandy. From the beginning we were very pleased with her professionalism. Sandy was flexible and very attentive to our needs. Our wedding was held at the UVa Chapel, with a reception at Alumni Hall. We wanted our style and decor to be "UVa" with orange and blue tones. After meeting with Sandy, she had excellent suggestions to keep costs lower by using in season spring flowers all within the orange and white families with 'pops' of blue. Our guests complimented the fresh floral centerpieces and my husband and I were very happy with the wedding party flowers. My favorite flower is the tulip and Sandy did an amazing, full bouquet of all white and orange tulips for my bridal bouquet. We were able to bring our own vases for the guest tables and drop them off when we were already in town. My husband and I highly recommend Sandy and the Verde Natural Florals team!

I cannot begin to explain how amazing Sandy is at creating beautiful flowers for every aspect of weddings! When my husband I met with Sandy, my vision consisted of a rustic, fall vineyard wedding. Sandy took my vague ideas and turned the wedding into an amazing Fall Fantasy Wedding (per many of our guests!). To honor my late Jewish grandmother, we decided to incorporate some Jewish traditions into our ceremony. Sandy and her husband built the most beautiful Chuppah! She even used my parents lace clothe that was purchased on their honeymoon. I had no specific flower requests and left these decisions to Sandy depending on what looked gorgeous and was local to the area. Sandy's bouquets and boutonnieres were stunning and incorporated gorgeous autumn flowers and berries. She even designed our centerpieces by providing gorgeous glassware for her flowers and bark pieces. I absolutely loved working with Sandy, especially when we needed to make last minute changes two weeks before the wedding. You will not be disappointed with her amazing work!

Flowers were not very high on my must get right list, but unfortunately I was sadly pretty dissapointed with what I was given by Verde Natural Florals. While the price of our flowers was excellent and well within our budget, I definitely did not get what I expected. I had thought my order was easy enough, (all white bouquets with burlap, wheat and grey accents with no green in any of our bouquets and boutonnieres), but apparently it was not.

The bouquets were certainly very pretty, but were full of peach and pale pink flowers as well as green ferns (exactly what I did not want.) Further, my grooms boutonniere was missing the white rose (the only thing that would have made him stand out from the rest), as well the boutonnieres had a completely different look than the bouquets. The boutonnieres were made of red berries with green leaves and wrapped in green ribbon which was very different than the requested wheat and pale grey leaves wrapped in burlap. Further, the contrast of my pale peach/pink/whitish flowers with the guys' green and red boutonnieres was definitely very noticeable, and not in a good way. I am not sure if perhaps there was some mix up and I received someone else's boutonnieres, or if somehow my vision was lost in translation (although most of what we had discussed in person was captured in the contract and I had sent pictures with exactly what I had in mind).

I would not say avoid Verde Natural Florals, just be VERY clear exactly what you want in your contract and confirm just before the wedding again what you want and ensure that it is available.

Sandy's work is outstanding! We can't speak highly enough of our experience with her. After just one in-person meeting, exchanging emails here and there, and sharing my Pinterest page, she captured the look I wanted to the tee. Actually, it was even more beautiful than I pictured. We did not have a very generous flower budget, and she was incredibly respectful of that, never tempting us to go beyond the budget. She was very flexible as our order changed a bit a couple of weeks before the wedding. On top of that, she is incredibly lovely to interact with. Even among our many wonderful vendors, she stood out.

I absolutely cannot say ENOUGH good things about Sandy!!! When we first met with her, she was so sweet and recognized our vision immediately. She gave me great alternatives for flowers that would be in-season during the time of our wedding and always responded to my many emails :). I'm from South Africa, so I had asked for proteas (native to S.A.) but would not have been upset if she wasn't able to get them... lo and behold, on our wedding day, I saw a protea not only at our altar but on every single centerpiece! They were BEAUTIFUL. I was also absolutely in love with all the flowers, especially my BOUQUET! Omg, it was absolutely gorgeous and EXACTLY what I had asked for! Everything was so, so perfect - and we received so many comments about the flowers. She also has an AWESOME collection of old bottles, mason jars, and vases, so that was really handy since we wanted mismatched bottles on each table :) Sandy is just beyond awesome and we HIGHLY recommend her!!!!

Sandy from Verde Natural Florals was a pleasure to work with which made the experience fun and easy! Even with me being based in NYC and Sandy in Charlottesville, it was easy to have calls with her so we could discuss our vision for the wedding. We communicated easily over phone, email and through many pictures. I had a Indian and Traditional wedding. Sandy had only done a few Indian weddings before, but she fully embraced the culture and did lots of research on Indian weddings which I thought was very nice and professional. The flowers were amazing the day of the wedding. Sandy is someone you can trust and that was very important to me. I felt like she new exactly what I wanted and that showed the day of the wedding. I loved working with her and would highly recommend her to any bride! Everything from the flower garlands she made for the Indian ceremony to the flower elephants she constructed, made our wedding so beautiful. Thank you Sandy :)

I can't praise Sandy and Rosie at Verde Naturals enough! First of all, BEAUTIFUL flowers, I received so many compliments on them at the wedding. Additionally, Sandy and Rosie provided excellent service and advice, quick response time for all communication, were extremely professional and had extensive experience working in Charlottesville weddings. I always felt like I was in the hands of experts, and that everything would be marvelous as long as I told them what I was envisioning! Also their work is an excellent value for money - their prices were extremely reasonable for wedding flowers (and besides being less expensive than those at my friends' weddings, they were prettier too!). If you're looking for a florist for your wedding, Verde Naturals should be your immediate choice!

Sandy did an amazing job with the flowers. I wanted gardenias as the main flower and we had a winter wedding theme. She listened to what I wanted and gave me something so beautiful. The two large arrangements for the front of the church were amazing and we reused them at the reception. The table settings were small and delicate and exactly what I wanted. The cake topper was just gardenias and absolutely beautiful. Not only were the flowers gorgeous but the price was right and Sandy was so nice and easy to work with. Definitely would choose them again. Was very pleased!

Sandy was the sweetest, most easy-going but hard-working florist and vendor I've ever met and worked with. Upon our first wedding meeting, she was very responsive to my ideas and provided great ideas of her own. She came back to me with a proposal that was under my budget, and worked with me as my ideas and our numbers changed. She was totally flexible, responsive, sweet, and easy to work with. She has a great attitude, loves what she does, and it shows in her work. Her flowers, the bouquets, and boutineers that she provided for my wedding were one of the best parts of the day. They were absolutely beautiful - vibrant, colorful, textured, and just as I'd imagined. I had absolutely confidence that she would do amazing things, but she exceeded my expectations in every way. She really made my wedding vision come to life, and I am so grateful to her. My mom took the ceremony flowers home with her when we left for our honeymoon, and is still enjoying them, almost two weeks later. I would recommend Sandy to anyone for any reason and would work with her again in a heartbeat. She is one in a million!

Sandy at Verde Natural Florals did an absolutely amazing job for my wedding. We only consulted over the phone and via email, but she showed up with flowers EXACTLY as we'd discussed and I'd invisioned. They were just beautiful. She offers a great service, at a great price.

Sandy was awesome!! She was super sweet on the phone and went out of her way to meet me to pick up her payment when I forgot to send it out due to a crazy work schedule!! Her flowers were absolutely beautiful and the bouquets once in water are still alive two weeks later!!! She knew I had a small budget for flowers and she made sure to work within that and also help me figure out some extras that I wanted and where my money was best spent!!

Great to work with and provided gorgeous arrangements! She totally understood my vision for the day, and she made it happen with very little direction. A dream for a girl who doesn't know much about flowers :)

Sandy provided the flowers and centerpieces for our wedding this past Saturday and she did an incredible job. The tablescapes that she created were exactly as I had pictured them (based on pictures I had seen on a wedding blog) and the flowers were gorgeous. Sandy listened to what I wanted and made sure that the arrangements she created reflected my taste. Her prices are reasonable and she's very easy to work with.

Sandy created gorgeous centerpieces and bouquets for our wedding! Admittedly, we went over-budget on some other aspects of our wedding, so by the time we got to flowers, I was seriously considering doing them myself (which I'm SO glad I didn't do!). I really wanted dark blue and white hydrangeas for the bouquets, and hydrangeas plus any other similarly colored flowers for the centerpieces. Most of the florists I contacted quoted me several hundred dollars just for 6 bouquets, but Sandy was able to work with our budget and fulfill all of our floral needs for less than some florists quoted for the bouquets!

She works with a local grower, so has many "unconventional" flowers at her disposal - for example, she used clover and other wildflowers in our centerpieces, as well as the requested hydrangeas. Everything was beautiful, and she picked up the bouquets and centerpieces from the venue the following day to take to a local nursing home. :) (I was glad she had something to do with them - I certainly didn't!) She also provided ivy for the mantle, and arranged it with candleholders I'd purchased. Everything was beautiful, very classy, and elegant, and helped create the perfect atmosphere for the wedding!

I loved working with Sandy to construct bouquets and centerpieces for our wedding. We had a meet-and-greet over coffee to discuss colors and flower types, and what she came up with was beyond beautiful. Everything turned out wonderfully!
