Working with Monica was such a great experience. Florals were something that we wanted, but also didn't prioritize. Fortunately, we trusted Monica's expertise and eye for what works and what doesn't and that is something that I highly recommend...
that you do if you go with her. She's not afraid to give her opinion and by trusting her, it worked out way better than we could've imagined.
During our planning process, the flower industry went through a major shift and the prices of flowers skyrocketed. Fortunately, Monica was able to make things work and stay within our budget. She's such a magician when it comes to florals. She managed to get the most lushest and bloomed flowers we have ever seen. Our guests and we were so amazed with the florals. We got compliments left and right on how beautiful our flowers looked. I also love that Monica donates your flowers to a local retirement home after the wedding so you know they'll get a second life after your wedding.
Monica is such a sweet and wonderful person. We are so happy that she worked on our wedding.

I'm going to preference every wedding review I write by saying that I literally plan weddings for a living so you can imagine that I know a thing or two about what I want went it came to my own wedding day. Being very type A and a perfectionist...
at heart (what planner isn't? I knew I needed the best of the best in the industry to ensure my wedding was everything I dreamed of an more. Now on to the review!
Monica is truly a calming spirit which once you get started on the planning you'll understand how important it is to have someone who is very calming on your side. During the 2.5 years it took for us to finally get married (thanks Covid!) Monica has been so gracious handling 3 postponements AND seasonal changes of my wedding to ensure I get the look and feel I wanted. There were plenty of times where I would change to look or flowers used at my wedding and she took in all my requests. We knew when we moved the wedding from the summer to fall that I could be dealing with some weather challenges (i.e. wind potentially knocking over my floral arrangements on acrylic stands down the aisle.) Monica came up with a way to keep the very light acrylic stands from knocking over if it got windy (and boy was it windy that day), she weighed the bottom with a brick and designed greenery around it. The week before my wedding I decided to add draping to the pergola because I was again concerned about the wind and potentially not being able to have the florals on stands which will end up making the ceremony space very bland. This was after the fact that Monica called me to let me know that pricing for flowers went up significantly (due to covid) and I appreciate her being transparent. She will still work within the budget you allotted but if this happens to you I would say be flexible and trust her and her judgement. She mentioned she may not have flowers for the pergola because of the increase costs I was already stretching my budget but on the day of when I arrived to the ceremony space Monica and her team were putting greenery on the pergola and draping. She really did go the extra mile and I couldn't have entrusted anyone more to have beautified my wedding!

We worked with Monica for our wedding. She did everything: from the altar to the center pieces to the boutonnieres. Monica had great ideas, helped us figure out the right arrangements, and was responsive to all of our questions. We did a few wa...

I recently used Verde for my wedding flowers in December and it was just the best experience! When I first met Monica, she was so kind and even came to my venue to look at the decorations since I was getting married at Christmas. The flowers c...
ame out beautifully and went perfectly with the Christmas decorations that were already up at the venue. She is so talented and her designs were just stunning! She also came and delivered the bouquets, etc to our bridal party separately before dropping the centerpieces at the venue. Her customer service is top-notch and I highly recommend her! Thank you, Monica!

Verde has a wonderful selection of flowers and Monica, the owner, is a brilliant designer. And, she's warm and friendly, which makes shopping at her little shop even more of a pleasure.

I was blown away by her creativity, especially considering the budget limitations we presented. She personally delivered the flowers to us on the day of the wedding, and we were so appreciative of her excellent customer service.
I highly recommend Verde for friendly service and gorgeous flowers!
