We used Little River Flower Farm for both our flowers and our ceremony/reception, and they were wonderful to work with! When looking for a venue, we knew we wanted to get married outdoors, ideally somewhere with natural beauty. We also wanted flexibility – no vendor requirements or strict windows for moving things in and out of the venue. LRFF went above and beyond our expectations and desires! The ceremony site is beautiful – in the woods, surrounded by trees and next to a stream, with handmade benches for guests. The reception area is spacious and included a large bonfire, which was a HUGE hit. The flowers were all beautiful. Nancy picked and arranged the bouquets and arbor from her gardens and the morning before the wedding, my fiance, parents, and some family members all arrived at the farm early to pick the flowers for the wedding. It was the dreamiest start to the wedding weekend and ensured the arrangements turned out exactly as I had envisioned. Prior to the wedding, Nancy was responsive to all of my calls, and provided a lot of advice. On the day of the wedding, Nancy and Bruce helped to guide guests, answer questions, and build the previously mentioned bonfire! In the days after the wedding, the venue was one of the things that was so highly regarded among our guests. I highly recommend Little River Flower Farm for a ceremony and reception site, as well as for all your flower needs!

Nancy at little River Flower Farm was amazing. I didn't really have any vision at all for my flowers, but what Nancy created was exactly perfect for me and the venue. The bouquets were absolutely gorgeous, and I completely fell in love with the arrangements she made for the barrels and vases. Nancy was always so easy and pleasant to a work with. I couldn't recommend Little River Flower Farm more.

I can't say enough amazing things about LIttle River Flower Farm and Nancy for my wedding flowers. I was an out of state, destination wedding bride and finding a florist was tricky. Add getting married on an island and needing 20+ table arrangements to come via ferry to the mix but LRFF was the answer! Nancy asked for photos of arrangements I liked, discussed budget and what would be in season. I gave Nancy a few ideas but overall gave her free range and the arrangements were the most gorgeous flowers I've ever seen. She exceeded all my expectations. I would have paid over double the amount had I gone with anyone else. Thank you Nancy and LRFF, so many people complimented how gorgeous all the arrangements were!
