They were willing to try posted 6/3/2014

Nearly every part of the order was incorrect, but they did try very hard to fix it.

Absolutely perfect. posted 4/19/2014 (modified 4/20/2014)

These girls understand your vision 100%. They came fully prepared for my wedding and went above and beyond to make sure my wedding was exactly as I'd hoped it would be. They worked with my other vendors very professionally and arrived early for set up. It helped me relax quite a bit to have them so on top of things! They were also very responsive during the whole planning process - always timely in responding to emails. Their devotion to local and sustainable flower farms is applaudable and their flowers are of the highest quality and construction. I am so blessed they were a part of my big day. It would not have been as beautiful as it was without their handcrafted and unique bouquets, garlands and assortments. I love Sweet Root!

Passion and beauty posted 1/18/2014 (modified 1/19/2014)

The ladies at sweet root village truly love their work and it shows in every bloom and detail. They worked with me to stay in budget, while focusing to carry my vision of vintage elegance to fruition. They looked at pictures of my dress, the venue, and my idea pictures, and came up with a floral concept even better than I imagined. Highly recommend!

BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS! posted 10/25/2013

i can't tell you how impressed i was with lauren and rachel. the entire experience with them from start to finish was just absolutely a pleasure!

i approached them because i stumbled across their website and fell in love with their work! i was looking for someone to make a flower crown for me, and i had already been turned down by a number of florists who said my project wasn't worth their time and effort. (i was on a budget and DIY-ed lots of the other flowers)

my consultation was inspiring, and helped me figure out other things for the wedding. the quote process was also super painless, and they were willing to work with my limitations. i actually ended up getting lots more flowers than i anticipated because they were so accommodating and had such great ideas!

the whole process was just great, and i can't rave enough about these talented and sweet women!!!!!

HIRE THEM! Seriously, they are AMAZING!!!!!!! My flowers were PERFECT! They took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for in terms of bridal party flowers and decor. They picked up all of the decor items that I had purchased for our cocktail hour and reception. They came early and set everything up. My mom was THRILLED and still talks about it 7 months later. They came under my expected budget (every dollar saved adds up) and I dind't have to give up anything I wanted. My bouquet lasted 10 days! TEN!

There are not enough words to truly capture how happy I was with their work. They are my preferred florist for sure! Lauren and Rachel went out of their way to make my dreams a reality. They are so helpful and kind! Really, if you want a florist who is going to think outside the box and be creative go talk to them! I suggest them to ALL of my friends and many have hired them and been thrilled too. If you want the best, call them NOW!

USE THEM!!!! posted 6/28/2012

If you read no further, read this: USE THEM!!!! Best people and talent I've met!!!!!!
From the beginning Sweet Root Village had not only been generous, but amazing. I won our engagement session in a competition- and so- even though Rachel wasn't getting paid she went above and beyond on our shoot- even buying and preparing and bringing props to make it vintage and to add an edge (our engagement session was WWII themed).
Well after that, I entered ANOTHER competition from them, and won free make-up for my wedding day (again- so generous). Sarah Patch made the drive out to my home to "try out" the makeup style on her own expense. She is like Van Gogh with a make-up brush. The day of she was on time- and she made me feel and look more beautiful than I could have ever imagined for my wedding day. AND my makeup didn't run when I cried!!! And lasted until the next day.
I hired them for flowers (after how AMAZING they'd been for me). I was very vague giving a very general deion that I wanted "wild flowers" yet "classy" with sunflowers for my bouquet, and even more vague for the boutonnieres. And NO roses! And then, last minute I added on flowers for my cake!!! They not only came through, but exceeded EVERY expectation I had for my flowers.
The entire Sweet Root Village staff is kind, understanding, flexible, gracious, and, above all, talented. Even if I hadn't won those free photos and makeup- after seeing what they could do- I would have paid them for it! AND if I ever need photos in the future, I will save up to have them do them. I would trust no one else anymore. If I could have afforded it- they would have planned, decorated, and photographed my entire wedding!!!!
Would I recommend this to a friend? Without a doubt!
