    Beautiful flowers!

    Gorgeous gorgeous flowers!! When we met with foxtail we knew we were in the best hands. They asked what our favorite flowers were.. "Umm pretty ones?" As you can tell we don't know anything about flowers.. They took control and made sure the colors went with our color scheme and the flowers were in season.
    They were so pretty!! So many people complimented us on the flowers and then said we did such a good job.. Don't worry we corrected them to make sure they knew foxtail did it all and we trusted them!!

    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!
