We are Pat Roberts and Sherry Spencer, a mother-daughter team that has specialized in wedding and event flowers since 1986. We are as passionate about our beautiful wedding bouquets as we are about providing exceptional service to our clients. We will personally be involved in every step of your wedding -- from consultations to design and even setup. We and our staff pride ourselves on providing superior quality in bridal bouquets & wedding flowers and top notch service with only the finest attention to detail.
We mostly serve Charlottesville & the surrounding areas but will travel for destination weddings. We require our services to be booked in advance for the entire day at a specified minimum. We often have initial consultations as early as a year in advance of busy months (May, June, & October) & suggest contacting us at least 6 months in advance for any other times of the year.

Our Designs & Method
Our designs are inspired by gardens and all things natural. We love abundant wedding bouquets and floral arrangements overflowing with garden-style flowers, fruits, and vines -- some wild, some cultivated, and many wholly unexpected. Although ours is mostly that of garden-style, we like to dabble in all styles, constantly reinventing our style and incorporating yours. This is how we keep our passion alive. We believe when you love what you do it shows!
Wedding Flowers: Pricing
The initial consultation is offered free of charge & is followed by a detail proposal in writing. We do not offer packages; instead, we price everyone on an individual bases after a comprehensive initial consultation. We have an extensive portfolio of work & we will never use standard floral design books for consultations. We show photos of our own work and pay close attention to your reactions for insight into your style & vision. We use this for inspiration in creating unique bridal bouquets & wedding flowers for you.
We only accept a limited number of weddings & events per weekend in order to maintain our high standards. We will pencil you in our calendar from the date of our initial consultation, but require a 50% deposit once the proposal has been approved to secure the date. We have no minimum budget requirements, but advise you to consider your wedding flower budget at 8-12% of your entire budget.
