Hi! I'm Casey, the owner and lead floral designer of Cultivate Event Co. That means I run the floral consultations, curate the floral recipes, execute the design elements for your big day, and so much more.
My aesthetic is lush and organic, and I live for color. I love everything from muted and muddy to bold and bright. Coordinating color palettes is one of my all-time favorite things to do (aside from designing flowers, playing with puppies, drinking coffee, and watching true-crime documentaries).
Outside of work, I live in Richmond with my sweet partner, Elliot. You may see us around the city taking a walk through Maymont, eating at The Daily, or performing improv at The Coalition Theater in Jackson Ward. Even though I'm definitely a Richmonder, I grew up outside of Charlottesville, and I love serving couples all over the Central, Coastal, and Northern Virginia areas.

It made our day come together.
The flowers picked out by Casey fit the description of what I requested: deep reds, some green, and something different-- I just wanted her touch added to it. The jasmine that she included in the arrangements smelled incredible and matched beautifully with my dress. Casey was there before my photographer arrived, making sure I absolutely loved the arrangements, and she helped my husband with his boutonniere and my ladies with their flowers as well. She was calm, loving, professional, and excited, all at the same time. If you book her for your wedding, you're lucky. Simple as that.Sent on 06/06/2019

Casey was beyond amazing. She took our vision and made it breathtaking. Travis and I do not know too much about flowers- the main thing we knew was that we wanted purple throughout the arrangements. Aside from a few minor requests, Casey built us a portfolio to review. We knew we could trust her. The big day came along and Casey was there busting her behind to get everything in place- it was absolutely perfect. From the bouquets to the table arrangements, she did not disappoint. We are so happy with everything Casey provided!Sent on 10/14/2018
