Courtney was absolutely fabulous! My fiance and I were living in Florida while planning our wedding back home in Virginia Beach. I was nervous about finding vendors that could see my vision from so far away. But after my first consultation with Courtney, nerves were put at ease and excitement set in. She took the time to listen to what I was envisioning while at the same time offering her expertise. She stayed with me through the whole process and by the time of our wedding, I thought I knew what I was getting...and was so excited! However, everything turned out 10X better than my imagination! She captured everything I possibly wanted and made it that much better. I adored my bouquet that captured my personality so well. Another favorite was this eucalyptus greenery that went along the back of my ceremony chairs and was repurposed for my head table..it was so lush and beautiful that everyone couldn't believe it was real! Courtney was incredible and if there was a rating greater than 5 stars she would receive it from my now husband and I without question! I would recommend Courtney again and again to every Bride looking to make your wedding beautiful!

Where do I start?! Courtney was absolutely amazing from the first time we talked on the phone all the way to helping us get ready on our wedding day. She made the bouquet of my dreams, as well as all the other florals she did for the day... they could not have been more perfect! The florals she did truly helped make our day beautiful and I am so thankful for the friend I have found in Courtney through this whole process. I would recommend her 100%!

"All I can say is WOW. Courtney absolutely nailed my vision for a winter wedding! I'm not a flower person so I needed all the help I could get. She's not only great at executing ideas, she's an absolutely amazing listener. I knew that flowers can make or break a space so DIY was completely out of the question. I'm so glad we trusted Courtney with the reins! She provided the lush greenery, neutral colored blooms, gold accents, and a massive eucalyptus garland that complimented our venue perfectly. She was even able to modify arrangements a few days before the event. I knew we needed additional decor and we were able to bounce ideas back and forth ironing out the specifics. They looked great! Our guests still rave about the flowers till this day! After our very first Skype meeting I knew I had made the right choice. She just "got me". I live near Baltimore, her office was in Richmond, and the venue was in Charlottesville, so trying to coordinate a wedding in a city you've only visited once (for 30 minutes) was tough. Luckily Courtney understood and worked diligently to make the planning process as easy as possible. I'm so glad I came across her Instagram page months ago. I adore her work and now I'm a CIE bride for life!"

Courtney was an absolute dream to work with and I honestly could not recommend her enough!
I live in Brooklyn but was getting married in Virginia and Courtney helped make the process so much easier. She was always beyond accommodating with scheduling and overall just totally on top of her game.
Before our initial conversation she asked that I fill out a brief survey outlining the vision for our wedding and as you could imagine not having the "bridal gene" myself, I left this quite vague. I was going for a rustic, romantic vibe and knew that I wanted all white florals with table lanterns but that was about it. Courtney showed up to our first meeting not only beyond prepared but with photos of what I was imagining but couldn't put into words. About two weeks before our wedding I had a last minute request to add flowers to our place card table (my initial idea wasn't going to work) and Courtney again was not only so accommodating but executed it perfectly.
Our venue had three options for the ceremony location depending on weather and it just so happened to pour on our wedding day so we had to bring everything inside. Courtney brought the venue to life with her floral design and to this day I get the sweetest compliments from family and friends on how beautifully it all came together.
Courtney honestly, is a true genius at her craft. Her warm personality is infectious and our meetings always felt more like a catch up with an old friend I've known for years versus business. She brought my floral vision to life, in fact beyond anything I could have imagined (or pinned!) and helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect! Highly, highly, highly recommended!!

I could not have asked for more gorgeous wedding flowers or a better experience with Courtney! I was so impressed by how quickly and thoroughly she communicated with me through the entire process. She listened and understood my ideas, and gave amazing suggestions as well. Even her proposal was incredible, with the names and pictures of each type of flower as well as inspiration photos so that I could easily see what we had talked about. Courtney went above and beyond to make sure my flowers were perfect and that the day went smoothly. She is so genuinely nice, in addition to being such a talented and creative florist. My flower crown, bouquet, and eucalyptus garland were honestly some of my very favorite elements of my wedding day thanks to Courtney!

Courtney is absolutely AMAZING!! We hired her for her floral services, but she still used her knowledge as an event planner to answer questions I had regarding planning. I know that she would do a thorough and amazing job planning/coordinating! Our floral arrangements were more beautiful than I ever could have imagined and I was bummed that I couldn't enjoy them beyond our wedding (our honeymoon was right after the wedding)! Courtney was incredibly thorough and imaginative - she was able to envision what I could not articulate for the wedding. She worked within our budget to give us the most gorgeous outcome possible AND she traveled 4 HOURS to not only deliver the arrangements then she and her awesome husband took the time to take care of our centerpiece arrangements at the venue!! She is also one of the nicest people I have met and is a fellow coffee addict! :)
Look no further, because Courtney will deliver what you are searching for to make your wedding gorgeous and memorable and she will make you incredibly happy and put you at ease!
