Fantastic Florists for Charlottesville Weddings

Charlottesville is positively blooming with top-notch floral designers whose hand-crafted bouquets can give your big day the whimsical (or classic or boho or rustic…) touch it needs. Here are our top picks.

Hedge Fine Blooms

No need to hedge your bets on this one— this downtown floral designer knocks it out of the park every time, with an emphasis on Virginia-grown flowers and creative arrangements that work to enhance the look of your special day (think cozy lamb’s ear for a winter wedding, or a cascade of eucalyptus across your farmhouse table).

Tourterelle Floral Design

With a career spent in the wedding and event industries (growing up, her family owned an inn, and later, she worked at Caspari, where she was responsible for all of the store’s display table arrangements), Lucia Evans-Morse has carved out a space in the local floral industry with her romantic, thoughtful designs.

Fiori Floral

Weddings are pricey, but Fiori focuses on affordability without skimping on style. While you can ask owner Jenn Finazzo to hand-craft bouquets for you, the designer also offers floral packages of loose blooms for your wedding party to arrange on its own, saving on cost and giving you an extra opportunity for customization.

Verde Natural Florals

As they say, the words “verde” and “natural” are in the company’s name on purpose—Verde specializes in nature-inspired arrangements for local vineyard and outdoor weddings, often incorporating greenery, herbs, and other garden elements into bouquets.

Blue Ridge Floral

Floral arches are all the rage (and rightfully so—they create such a moment), and no one does them better than Blue Ridge Floral. From climbing vines that look like they’ve been there forever to bright blooms skimming the curve of a handcrafted altar, owner Amy Webb takes your vision to the next level.

Nature Composed

You’ve heard of farm-to-table? Nature Composed subscribes to the idea of garden-to-vase, growing many of the flowers for their relaxed bouquets at owner Jenn Pineau’s farm in Rochelle, Virginia. For wedding arrangements, they make it easy: Tell the designers your color palette and style preference and they’ll, well, compose a bouquet based on what’s in season.

Southern Blooms

Everything’s bigger in the south, and that includes the beautiful, bountiful bouquets from mother-daughter team Pat Roberts and Sherry Spencer. They’ve been in the business since 1986 and, since then, have gained national recognition and trendsetters and industry leaders for their statement-making arrangements.
