Highly personalized florist

It was such a pleasure working with Growing Wild Floral Company. Lindsay worked with us to meet our design plan. Their locally grown flowers were magnificent flowers, as were the vases, votives, and chuppah. So many people came up to us complimenting us on the flowers, noting how they were perfect for spring and matched our tastes. Each piece was so tastefully done. We especially enjoyed the flowers around and over the chuppah - what a delightful array and fragrance. Thank you for making our day so special.

Beautiful, sustainably-managed florals

The team did a wonderful job on my bouquet. To reduce waste, I used rented flowers for everything except my own bouquet, so I just needed something that would go with my chosen design, but still stand out from the rest. They took my inspiration photos and created a beautiful piece that I am now having preserved as a memory of the day. Most importantly, their farm is run with sustainability in mind. A great choice for Northern Virginia!

Spectacular!

We simply can’t say enough how absolutely thrilled we were with the flower arrangements Barbara and her company put together for our wedding. They were beautiful and made every aspect of our day look incredible. From the moment we first spoke to her and she kindly invited us to meet her at her farm, Barbara was fun and easy to work with, asked all the right questions to understand our vision, and then made it a stunning reality. During our first meeting, after she understood what we were looking for and we explained what we liked, she said something like, “If you give me a little leeway, I will make your wedding look gorgeous,” and she absolutely delivered. Everyone who attended and everyone we’ve shown the pictures to has raved about how beautiful the flowers were. She understood the colors I wanted, the looks I liked for the table centerpieces, the arbor, and our cake, and she went out of her way to get my husband a boutonniere that mimicked the look and colors of his favorite flower, the Colorado columbine, since columbines were out of season at the time of our wedding. We’re so happy with how everything turned out!

Growing Wild time and time again comes in at budget and provides a gorgeous product. My clients are always thrilled with the bouquets and arrangements. Growing Wild is always on time at the beginning and end of the event. Responses via email are always timely, and appointments are easy to make. But ultimately it comes down to the floral design. The array of props is wide, and the quality of the floral is just stunning. You can't go wrong when you hire Growing Wild.
