We recently got married at a vineyard in Charlottesville, VA in early March and Sandy of Verde Naturals did an INCREDIBLE job!! Sandy was recommended to us by our wedding planner, and from our initial interaction, Sandy was an absolute joy to work with. Sandy is super responsive and responded to my emails almost immediately. Before we met, I sent Sandy some photos of flower arrangements I liked and she was immediately able to tell my style and recommended which flowers would be best to use. This was so wonderful because I knew nothing about flowers (and still don’t) so I felt instantly relieved that Sandy picked up on these things right away. Sandy asked a lot of questions to get a feel for the rest of the decor, the colors my bridal party would be wearing, etc. to make sure that the flowers would compliment the overall theme and design of our wedding. Besides showing her a few photos, telling her my budget, and noting that I wanted to use big flowers that were in season, Sandy took it from there! As the wedding got closer, Sandy checked in with me to make sure I hadn’t changed my mind - and I did end up making a minor tweak to the colors as the wedding got closer, which was not an issue at all! When Sandy showed up on our wedding day with my bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets - I CRIED tears of joy!! The flowers were absolutely stunning and more beautiful than I could have imagined. The rest of the floral arrangements were equally gorgeous and I received TONS of compliments from guests on how beautiful they were. After the wedding, every person that has seen wedding photos has commented on how gorgeous my bridal bouquet was, as well as the rest of the floral arrangements Sandy put together. I can’t thank Sandy enough and am so thankful we chose her as our florist. Besides being incredibly talented, Sandy is a wonderful person and I would absolutely recommend hiring Verde Naturals to any Bride-to-Be!

It is my pleasure to write this review for Sandy Goodson of Verde Natural Florals. All I can say is “WOW”. We were married in November, and I wanted my flowers to be full of the vibrant autumn colors I love so much. After meeting with Sandy to discuss our vision, we knew we were in good hands. I loved my bouquet so much—and my bridesmaids’ bouquets complemented their dresses perfectly. The centerpieces Sandy created for our reception added such beautiful color and vibrancy to the room. We received so many compliments on how amazing the flowers were. I can honestly say they were the most stunning flowers I’ve ever seen. Aside from being a fantastic florist, Sandy is a lovely person. Her warm personality and friendly demeanor made working with her a wonderful experience. I only wish I could give her a hug and tell her in person how happy I was with the pieces she created for my wedding day. Thank you so much, Sandy!

Sandy was great to work with! The bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and all the flowers were gorgeous and really fit in with the vibe of our wedding day. She definitely will give you suggestions on what flowers will work and she thought ahead on my wedding day to bring my bouquets to me rather than just depositing them at the venue - something I hadn't specified and didn't realize until the day of! The flowers all lasted throughout the evening and I never felt like anything was falling apart or weren't up to par. She lets you provide your own materials for the most part, which is a huge cost-saving benefit.

The only reasons I have to knock off any stars was that the corsages were supposed to be wrist corsages and they were pin corsages. Luckily they worked with the ladies' dresses, but that could've been bad. If you're a local bride, then the issue of not being able to deliver any materials to her until 2 weeks out won't be an issue, but for me it was a little inconvenient to spend 4 hours in the car 2 weeks before my wedding.

Overall, my experience with Sandy was great! I would absolutely recommend her as a florist.

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.
