Converted Flower Lover
When it came to flowers for the wedding, I had no idea what I wanted as I'm not a big "flower-loving" gal. All I knew is that I wanted a classic/romantic feel that worked well with the décor and timing of a fall vineyard wedding and that complemented my color palette. As I was not from VA (planning a wedding from NJ), I set up a 30 minute call with Karen and Darby when I first started talking with them in order to review my prioritizes and vision. The conversation was so natural and easy that we found ourselves talking on the phone for 1 hour as I was getting so excited over all the flower options. Karen and Darby put together a proposal which was right up my alley. After a bit of adjusting to come into some updated wedding budgets, the end result was absolutely spectacular. The bouquets were dropped off on time at my mother's house the morning-of and looked amazing in all the photos. I absolutely loved all of the arrangements, as well as the decorations that Foxtail supplied for the reception. If I had to do it again, I would have requested additional structure in the boutonnieres, as some of the groomsmen boutonnieres started falling apart during the photos (after the wedding). Thankfully, my sister-in-law was a pro at fixing them for the photos and it wasn't a big deal at all, as the flowers had served their purpose (looking stunning for all the photos). If you're looking for a talented florist, Foxtail Cottage is it!Sent on 08/09/2020

Wonderful to work with and stunning arrangements
Karen and her team are amazing. I initially met with Karen when I first started planning my wedding and I had no idea what I wanted. Karen guided me and provided her expert advice to help me come up with a vision. She’s talented and tasteful, which shows in her work. The prices are extremely reasonable and Karen does not skimp on anything. Every arrangement I received was luscious and full. My wedding flowers were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined (and more beautiful than anything I’ve ever seen on Pinterest too!). I would recommend Foxtail Cottage to anyone and everyone. They’re the best.Sent on 09/23/2019
