Amazing, eco-friendly greatness!
Working with Emily to plan the florals for my wedding day was SUCH an enjoyable experience! Emily is knowledgeable, experienced, and so professional! I came into my first meeting with Emily with a very specific vision in mind, but worried that since I lacked much floral knowledge, that she would have difficulty understanding what I was looking for. But throughout our meetings it become very clear to me that she saw my vision even more clearly than I did! On our wedding day, the florals were everything I could've dreamed of and more. We got so many compliments from all of our guests. I would recommend her to any bride in a heartbeat!Sent on 10/14/2019

Working in the wedding industry for the last ten years and owning my own event company meant I knew exactly what I wanted in a florist. Emily is a local powerhouse, boss babe who created a business quite literally from the ground up. Wood Violet is eco-friendly and their preferred medium is locally grown flowers and foliage with a loose, natural, garden-y, a little messy, lush and bountiful style. Um, we were was SOLD. Their website boasts they are not fans of rules or convention and that's exactly the aesthetic we were looking for.
Our planning meetings with Emily were a blast. She understood our dark, slightly gothic/rock & roll, boho style from the jump and ran with it. She sourced beautiful black velvet for our bouquets. She found unique vessels for the mixed foliage and plants around the venue. She custom built an incredible copper pipe piece that floated above our head table, dripped in insanely beautiful greenery. WHATTTTTT.
The bouquets were out of this world. Emily and her team went above and beyond for us. Way beyond. We had a flip from the ceremony to the reception and the Wood Violet team literally made it all happen. They came back at the end of the night to collect rentals so we didn't have to worry about any of it. Seriously, guys, I provided probably the most laid-back, "meh whatever you want to do" direction to Emily and I got magic. MAGIC, I TELL YOU.
One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was hiring Emily. Forever grateful for the beauty we were surrounded by on the most incredible day of our lives. Wood Violet is what's up, y'all!Sent on 09/30/2018
