For the best flowers in Charlottesville, Amy (Blue Ridge Floral Design) is it. Not only does she grow some of the flowers in own garden, her kindness and creativity are top notch.Sent on 03/22/2013
When first looking for a florist, all the reviews initially led me to Pat's Floral Design. Although their arrangements were beautiful, their lack of professionalism (didn't get back to me until I followed up and left me hanging with a "we might be able to work with you") was a HUGE turn off. Fortunately for me, that is when I found Amy and I am so thankful I did.
Amy was extremely flexible as she graciously worked with me down to the last second, and our wedding flowers ABSOLUTELY exceeded my expectations. STUNNING.

I was just married this past weekend and I'm still in awe of my flowers! I can't get over how Amy was able to see my wedding vision so perfectly. I live out of state so working with Amy set my mind at ease while planning from hundreds of miles away. I completely trusted her and she is so talented and takes such pride in the work she does. She kept me posted on the progress of the growth of my flowers and was always so excited about them! (She had them planted especially for me!) Amy was a complete joy to work with and I am so glad she will forever be a part of our special day! I recommend Blue Ridge Floral Design a hundred times over!Sent on 10/11/2012

Blue Ridge Floral Design was the best decision we made for our wedding (other than our lovely venue)! Not only were they are such a pleasure to work with, they took our vision and made it a reality. I could not have asked for more beautiful flower arrangements or better quality of service!Sent on 02/05/2015

Blue Ridge Floral Design was by far the best choice I made in wedding planning. Amy took a couple of pictures, a swatch of fabric, and a few keywords and turned it into exactly what I wanted. She is creative, and her attention to detail is impeccable. You can tell that she loves flowers and takes pride in her work. Her pricing is also very reasonable. I felt that I got a great value.Sent on 09/19/2012

Amy and her team are awesome! Our flowers looked amazing and she was really great to work with. Before I met Amy, I was really struggling to put together a vision for flowers, I had colors picked out, but not much more. She asked me some questions and put together a perfect day for us. I loved the little touches and details that she and her team put into our centerpieces. She was an incredible pleasure to work with, her team was very prompt and responsive and incredibly sweet as well. Our pictures looked great and I loved loved loved how the flowers turned out! I highly recommend working with Amy and Blue Ridge Floral, you will not be disappointed.Sent on 11/25/2012

Amy Webb is a great florist! I don’t really know a lot about flowers and had an idea of what I wanted, but wasn’t exactly sure how to convey that. Amy was great she took the vague idea I had, had great ideas, and made the flowers perfect. It was simple, elegant, and made the ceremony/reception look amazing! She had great ideas and a great vision. Amy even recommended that we just move the flowers from outdoors (used for the ceremony) inside for the (reception) to save some. Everything was beautiful and perfectly arranged, I still have my bouquet dried sitting in our living room (it still smells amazing)!Sent on 07/28/2012

Amy was so great to work with. From the first time we met her we could tell she perfectly understood our vision of the day. All her update emails along the way were much appreciated and she took special care in making sure every flower fit with our color palette(even the tricky "vivid poppy" bridesmaid dress color). From the large arrangements to the table centerpiecese to our bouquets, I was speechless upon walking into King Family and seeing everything set up. She is such a gifted florist and professional.Sent on 06/04/2012

Blue Ridge Floral was an absolute treat to work with. I came to Amy after experiencing disappointment with another floral vendor that failed to offer me a proposal within my suggested budget. Not only did Amy gladly accept our budget, but at every step of the way, she did everythign she could to get us the most beautiful flowers for our wedding - and she refused to settle for less than best when it came to the quality of flowers.Sent on 06/07/2012
Despite a warm winter and a spring wedding date, Amy delivered on the various peonies and roses that we contracted for. She even made several trips up into the mountains to find the lilac that bloomed late enough! At every turn, Amy was professional. She met us at the venue when we came for the tasting just so could see the site and give us her early thoughts. On the wedding date, she was on time and even stuck around to make sure the moms, dads and groomsmen had their respective accoutrement fastened properly. The flowers were simply stunning - never compromised for less than great.
My husband and I both felt in good hands with Amy, and although we gave her photos of the arrangements we liked, we let her have artistic control of most of the decisions. This turned out to be a great decision because she has a much better eye than either of us! We really enjoyed working with Amy and absolutely recommend her work.

I am not an over-rater, but Amy deserves 5/5 stars! She does great quality work at a reasonable price, especially compared to other florists in the Charlottesville area.Sent on 04/14/2012
I don't know much about flowers, but I did pick a few bouquets I liked off of Pinterest and Amy worked off those ideas to create exactly what I wanted! My bouquet was stunning and the bridesmaids were equally as beautiful. I didn't really have wedding "colors", but went with a burlap/lace theme throughout. At Amy's suggestion, she tastefully added lace to my bouquet stem and burlap to the bridesmaids'. My husband's boutonniere was very nice and looked great with his suit.
I also asked Amy to create two large arrangements for the ceremony. I gave her no direction whatsoever and simply trusted her judgement and style. They were absolutely gorgeous! I was surprised at how large they were, especially given the great price. These were probably one of my favorite things she created for me.
Amy also bought burlap ribbon and made bows for the ceremony pews (really rows of chairs since I got married at Veritas). She tied them to the chairs on the inside of the aisle so the pictures of the bridal party walking down will look really nice! The pew bows were at her suggestion and I'm glad I decided to do it.
Overall, I highly recommend Blue Ridge Floral Designs (I did interview 2 other florists in the area and wouldn't change a thing!). Flowers will be one less thing you'll have to worry about when you work with Amy.

Words can not express how AMAZING Amy and her team is. She is so knowledgeable about flowers and you can trust (100%) that she will make your wedding/event beautiful.Sent on 12/27/2011
When I first met with Amy at her house I had a few ideas but knew very little about flowers. She showed photos and actual flowers that can be used for my bouquet and my two bridesmaids. She is such a kind person and clearly loves what she does.
Because I am not from Charlottesville I did most communication through email. We emailed a few times and when I updated her with any changes they were made. A few days before the wedding she shared with me that she was able to find fabulous winter flowers for the centerpieces. They were gorgeous!!!! I wish I could have taken them home. Amy's team delivery and clean up was not an issue of budget at all. The value of flowers I received for the price was amazing. My bouquet was so huge that there would be no way I could get it somewhere else for the price I had. Some flowers that she used that day were orchids, calla lillies, hydrangeas, and those are pricey flowers.
I think Blue Ridge Floral Design is the only way to go in Charlottesville.

I highly recommend Blue Ridge Floral if you want gorgeous floral decor on your wedding day!Sent on 11/08/2011
Everything from the table centerpieces to the bridesmaids bouquets and my cascading bouquet were intricately done with beautiful flowers, with remarkable color that blended perfectly with my wedding color palate and bridesmaids dresses. Everything was very lovely and extremely fresh. The chuppah she made was very elegant as well.
I was so grateful that Amy was able to work within my budget and provide magnificent decor at the same time.I found her prices more reasonable, and her quality higher, than other vendors I interviewed.
Amy also has a wealth of knowledge. When I first met with her to tell her my ideas of what I wanted to create, she was very receptive and had a ton of different flower photos that came to her mind to show me that fit with exactly what I was looking for.
She simply does a fabulous job!

While it may be difficult to put into words how AMAZING Amy was to work with for my wedding a few weeks ago, I will at least give it a shot!Sent on 10/06/2011
From the very beginning of the wedding planning process, it was clear that I had no idea what I wanted with flowers. My mom and her friends wanted to do the centerpieces to add a personal touch, but we still wanted a florist to do all of the bouquets, corsages, aisle and arch decorations, etc. Based on reviews and wedding blogs, my mom contacted a few potential florists in the Charlottesville area and were immediately blown away by Amy's responsiveness, professionalism, and obvious passion for what she does. Amy invited my family to her home to sit down and discuss my "vision" and, based on my complete lack of knowledge of flowers (and lack of pictures), I'm sure I was a florist's nightmare! I simply described what I wanted my wedding to be like in a few sentences without any clear idea, and Amy then took care of the rest. Based on some sample pictures she showed me, I just knew we were in good hands, which is a very big deal when planning a wedding with so many different pieces to the puzzle.
Blue Ridge Floral Design completely BLEW ME AWAY on the day of my wedding. WIth 210+ people traveling from all over to be at my vineyard wedding, I of course was upset when it was POURING rain the entire day. Amy showed up at the venue much earlier than expected just to "check in" and provide us all with her calming presence. Because of her experience at various venues in the area, she assured me that the indoor back-up plan would be beautiful, and even made arrangements for extra indoor decorations with her incredible work. She openly welcomed (and encouraged) the involvement of my mom and her friends while they worked on the centerpieces, and even tied in a few personal touches of my mom's into the archway. Amy was a HUGE part in orchestrating a BEAUTIFUL indoor wedding, and at a much more reasonable price than other florists (as I quickly learned, flowers can easily eat up a wedding budget!)
Thank you, Blue Ridge Floral Design, for making our wedding so perfect. I strongly, strongly recommend contacting Amy for ANY event and will certainly use her again in the future for any floral needs. You are the best!!!

Amy is wonderful to work with! She immediately got my vision for the "look and feel" of the ceremony and she seemed genuinely excited and enthusiastic about helping to make it come true.Sent on 09/28/2011
The flowers and chuppah decorations were gorgeous, and we had a number of guests comment on how beautiful the chuppah was in particular. The flowers matched my dress and the bridesmaids dresses perfectly, and were exactly what I had hoped for.
Amy was a pleasure to work with, and a true professional.

I love Amy! I had a 10 month engagement. At the beginning I envisioned something classic and elegant and then completely switched gears to something wild, crazy, and colorful- Amy was so easy to work with and completely jumped on board my new color crazy vision and took it to the next level. I could tell she truly loved flowers and her enthusiasm and excitement really got me excited, even though I know nothing about flowers.Sent on 07/25/2011
She was one of my favorite vendors to work with and it really felt like you were working with a family member who cared just as much about the big day as you did. Like I said, her enthusiasm is contagious.
A month after the wedding and I'm still hearing back from guests about how beautiful the flowers were.
I can't recommend Amy enough!
Elizabeth · Married on 05/30/2011
Amy provided the flowers and other decor for our wedding and she did a terrific job. Our wedding was outside with an indoor reception and we ordered bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, a chuppah and other misc. floral decorations from her (flowers for the cake, for the ceremony chairs, etc). We met with her initially to tell her what we were thinking about and we didn't have a strong color palette, but rather wanted neutrals with some touches of color. She took it from there and did an amazing job with the flowers we love. I would most definitely recommend Amy to anyone as she is very talented with designing her pieces, organized, efficient at setup and very personable (both of our parents enjoyed talking with her as she was helping them with their corsages/boutonnieres).Sent on 06/23/2011

Jim and I were married March 26, 2011 at the UVA Chapel with a reception at Alumni Hall. Amy Webb helped with all the flowers for our wedding, and we could not have made a better choice. Amy Webb is incredible with flowers. I know so little about flowers, and Amy was the perfect florist to work with. She met with my fiancé and me to discuss what we envisioned and what we wanted on our wedding day and then she took our ideas and created beautiful arrangements. All of our bouquets and boutonnières were perfect, the chapel was gorgeous, and the receptions area was breathtaking. Amy wanted to create flower arrangements that really represented what we wanted and us. I would not hesitate to recommend Amy and Blue Ridge Floral Designs for any floral needs!Sent on 04/13/2011

I agree with another review here that Amy Webb is a true hidden gem of Central Virginia! My husband and I were recently married at Clifton Inn in Charlottesville, and Amy came highly recommended by the staff at Clifton. We were so fortunate to find her - we were planning our wedding from out of state and she was so patient and easy-going. We are not people who know a great deal about flowers, but had an overall idea of colors and the look we were going for. I trusted her judgement completely and she did not disappoint! The flowers and arrangements she created for our ceremony, bouquets and the reception were absolutely stunning - a perfect fit to the space and the feel of our celebration. People were literally gushing about them. In addition, Amy was so easy to work with. She truly knows and loves her craft - and we loved being able to give her the room and freedom to create and work her art. Thank you again, Amy! We miss our gorgeous flowers!Sent on 04/25/2011

From our first meeting with Amy Webb, it was apparent that she knew exactly what look we were hoping for and she didn't disappoint us one bit!

BEST FLORIST EVER!!! Exquisite. Fresh, gorgeous flowers that were beautifully arranged!! I couldn't have imagined how beautiful and special all of the flowers were going to be to both my guests and me. I had some delivered to family and friends prior to the wedding, and her careful, beautiful work was such a blessing to them and captured the joy of the occasion. Amy’s style is timeless, and she was easy to work with! She loves what she does, and it shows. We met once to discuss what style I wanted and what my favorite flowers were. I gave her a lot of freedom to choose anything she thought would go well with what I liked, and I'm so glad I did. The arrangements were absolutely stunning – the centerpieces at my December wedding included red and white tulips, roses, berries, boxwood leaves and more. And the rehearsal dinner centerpieces were mint julep cups with all white flowers, which we had the guests take home. Amy takes her job very seriously and absolutely loves what she does -- and it shows! She even made a Christmas wreath for my new husband and me to enjoy during the season and remind us of our special day! I've never written an on-line review before, but Amy was so good, I had to let people know.Sent on 12/14/2010

BRFD is amazing! Amy Webb, the florist who made everything, is a pleasure to work with. She listens carefully and then creates the most beautiful arrangements. The colors she picked were exactly what I envisioned in my mind! The bouquet she created was full of so many flowers and felt so regal as I carried it down the aisle. Amy takes the time to call the weeks before the wedding to confirm the flower order, discuss the wedding vision in great detail, and discuss the timeline of the day to the smallest detail. You can sit back and relax on your wedding day knowing that Amy is in charge! She was an amazing florist to have!Sent on 12/14/2010

Blue Ride Floral Design is simply amazing!!! My husband and I met with a few different vendors before meeting with Amy at BRFD...within 10 minutes of talking with Amy we had made our decision. Amy has an amazing eye for flowers and design in general. My husband and I had a general idea of how we wanted the ceremony and reception to look but really didn't know how to bring it all together. Within just one appointment with Amy, she laid out the flowers, centerpieces, and other elements to make our idea come to life!!! Additionally, Amy and her husband went out of their way to help us with not only the flowers / centerpieces for the wedding, but they also helped us build an amazing canopy that was the focal point for our ceremony!!! I would highly recommend Blue Ride Floral Design to anyone looking to have a beautifully decorated wedding!Sent on 04/10/2011

My husband and I used Amy and Blue Ridge Floral Design for our 7/10/2010 wedding and couldn't have been happier with her service and products. Everything from the arch and rose petals we used for our ceremony, to the bouquets and corsages, to the reception centerpieces, were all gorgeous. There was not one aspect of our flowers that we were not incredibly happy with.Sent on 09/16/2010
Amy went out of her way to make sure that the flowers were exactly what we imagined, and was able to do so even though we contacted her fairly late in the planning process. She was open to any and all ideas we had and was always reachable and happy to meet in person. She went above and beyond our expectations. In fact, when I had the idea to float flowers in the pool where we were holding our cocktail hour, she went as far as to special order flower rings and orchids, and to test ahead of time to make sure they would work (the floating flowers turned out to be a huge hit with guests). I would recommend her services to any couple getting married in the Charlottesville area.
