STUNNING Floral and Candle Display for a Winter Wedding
We are so grateful to Lucia and her team for making our wedding day so beautiful. Lucia and Elena were absolutely lovely to work with. We are so appreciative that they took the time to visit the venue (Dover Hall) with us to better understand the space. They helped us articulate an absolutely gorgeous vision for our day, and were graciously flexible when seating arrangements changed. I had complete faith in Lucia and her team to do a fabulous job and they exceeded all of our expectations. Words cannot express how stunning all of the floral and candle arrangements looked. It was truly like a fairy tale. We are STILL getting compliments about how romantic, elegant, and magical everything looked.
In addition to being really thoughtful and smart professionals, the team at Tourterelle were also extremely kind and lovely people. We HIGHLY recommended Lucia and her amazing team.

A Day That Dreams Came True
Tourterelle was so wonderful to work with us from beginning to end. We (The Bride, Groom, Mother of the Bride & me—Grandmother of the Bride and "Coordinator”) visited Charlottesville in mid-February before the October wedding. The warmth and thoughtfulness of their welcome made all of us know we were in the right place. They listened closely to our ideas and visions. Planning a large event from 3,000 miles away is never easy. The Bride spent considerable time with the designers that day....and 8 months later we had the most spectacular and magical day any of us ever dreamed of. The colors and the care with which the flowers were arranged or tied looked so natural.... but not a petal out of place. Everything was delivered on time. We repurposed several arrangements from the outdoor ceremony to the reception, enhancing the look in both places, and saving us on duplicate expenses. As I had the primary contact with the florist over the pre-wedding months, I can attest to their responsiveness and to their input on how we might accomplish certain looks within the constraints of our budget. I only wish that I lived in Charlottesville, or they could move to SoCal so I could have such beautiful arrangements all the time!Sent on 10/17/2019

From my first meeting with Lucia, I knew I had made the right decision booking Tourterelle Floral Design for my daughter's March 12, 2016 wedding at Pippin Hill . Lucia is so polite and calm, as is the rest of her team. She even gave us a wonderful recommendation for the wedding cake. We were coming from out of town and I knew we were in excellent hands. The flowers were absolutely breathtaking. Words can hardly do them justice. I would not hesitate to hire Lucia and her team at Tourterelle again. Absolutely a wonderful experience all around!!Sent on 07/06/2016
