Simply put, Bridget is amazing. As someone who has an affinity for floral design, I fell in love with Bridget's work at first glance. From our initial conversation, I knew immediately that Bridget understood our vision for our intimate wedding everything from the bouquets to the tablescapes and she did not disappoint on the big day. Her work is stunning and she was able to transform raw, empty rooms into warm and inviting spaces with her beautiful arrangements, unique vessels and incredible design aesthetic. Bridget's talent, kindness, patience, responsiveness and professionalism made her a joy to work with through every interaction from beginning to end. She realized our vision perfectly and we could not be more thrilled! I only wish the flowers could've lasted forever somehow, because they were honestly too beautiful to part with. :) - Michelle K.
I never considered myself to be a very 'picky bride,' but I have to admit, being an avid gardener myself, I agonized over how my wedding flowers would look. The first meeting I had with Bridget was in an adorable cafe in Brooklyn, where we sat, talked, had tea, and kicked ideas around, and from that point on, she was responsive to all my questions, patient with my indecisiveness, and willing to revise our plan (and budget) at any time. Bridget took the time to discuss the look and availability of different types of flowers I wanted (on the phone, over email, and in person), and she made the most wonderful Pinterest page for me so that I could visualize how my flowers might look. When I arrived at the New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park on my wedding day, the flowers were all I could have hoped for and more. Bridget captured the soft fall look I had tried to articulate, and she even managed to bring to life an aesthetic I don't know that I was ever quite able to put into words. Bridget is not only a skilled and stylish professional, but she is caring and kind, and her work is creative and beautiful. - Danielle M.
I am lucky to say that all of my vendors produced beautiful work, but Bridget was by far the most professional. She was reliable, responsive and a true artist. She works with professionals as well. She had never worked in my space before - which can be a worry for some - but she scoped out everything necessary for the room and it went off without a hitch. She really brought my dreams to life and prices were reasonable to boot! I would recommend Bridget to anyone. - Haley Y.
It was a pleasure to work with Bridget! She is so nice and professional and she makes the whole planning easy and stress free. Her work was beautiful and went BEYOND my expectations and what I have pictured. Also Bridget replied to emails and questions super quickly! I would not hesitate to use Bridget again! - Recent Bride
I cannot overstate what an incredible job Bridget and her team did for our wedding. My husband and I were not terribly interested in micromanaging the floral process (neither of us know the first thing about flowers) but we did have an overarching vision. We met with Bridget initially to explain what we were looking for and she just got it right away. From there, she worked pretty much completely independently (although was always very accessible by phone/email and even attended a walk through at our venue!) and created the most breathtaking floral arrangements I've ever seen. We received so many compliments on our flowers on the day of the wedding, and for weeks after. Amazing value and beauty, especially for the price. I was SO thrilled with Bridget's work. - Elizabeth D.
Working with Bridget from Violet and Verde was such a great experience. She was quick to respond in the planning process, worked with and was flexible with my needs and totally nailed the aesthetic on the big day. I thought what we got for the price was incredible. The flowers were organic feeling, unforced and uplifted the whole ambiance of the wedding. There was nothing cookie cutter about the choice of flowers and the way they were put together. The flowers ended up being one of my favorite parts of the decorations that day. Thank you Bridget! - Nicole W.
I would recommend Violet and Verde to brides planning their weddings with the utmost confidence and enthusiasm. Bridget is wonderful. She's thoughtful, efficient and very direct. She helped me transform a raw warehouse space into a glittering, elegant party room, and in the smaller room where we held our wedding ceremony she created a space that felt deeply spiritual. I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw it. During the planning, she graciously spent an hour with me in the venue and talked with me about every detail of the design. Even when I made very vague requests - such as a desire for a couple of chandeliers hanging from the rafters high above - she fulfilled them in a way that was more exciting than I could have imagined. I really cannot say enough good things about Bridget. - Emily F.
I hired Bridget Reale of Violet & Verde and it was the best decision I made throughout the entire wedding process. Our wedding was held at Wave Hill Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. My vision was to have a whimsical and romantic wedding at sunset where the floral arrangements blended in with the natural beauty of the gardens. Bridget understood my vision and more than delivered! Not only were the bouquets, centerpieces, and chuppah gorgeous, but Bridget also lined the ceremony aisle with lanterns and rose petals. She even made sure that the ground was sprinkled with tea lights. At the reception, all of the nooks and crannies that made up Wave Hill House sparkled with candlelight, giving me the perfect romantic wedding. Bridget thought of everything! To top it off, she is also incredibly kind, professional, and organized. Leading up to the big day, I must have e-mailed her twenty times (at least!) changing one detail or another. She was so accommodating and made me feel a lot less crazy than I'm sure I was! I highly recommend Violet & Verde. - Jenny C.
Bridget of Violet and Verde (V&V) created wonderful arrangements for my wedding in Manhattan. I was completely blown away by how beautiful the flowers turned out. I was particularly stunned by how full my bouquet was and I absolutely loved the ceremony arrangements. Overall, it was everything we discussed and more. Moreover, Bridget was fantastic to work with - she was professional and very accommodating to any changes I made. I highly recommend V&V to anyone planning an event. - Kelly K.
Bridget did an amazing job with the flowers at my wedding, to say the least. From the moment I met her, I knew she understood the look I was going for. I changed my mind throughout the planning process, and Bridget was very understanding and and patient with my ideas. The day of the wedding the flowers looked absolutely stunning! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for. We had a Jewish ceremony and our chuppah was absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect!! Thanks Bridget!! - Jaclyn B.
First of all I live in Los Angeles but planned my wedding in Brooklyn for Labor Day weekend. Bridget was a joy to work with from the very first email. I literally know nothing about flowers and she was just so patient and so sweet throughout the entire process. I thought it was so cool that she likes to get an idea of what you want by seeing your Pinterest page and instagram feed. I also wanted to include a handkerchief from my grandmother on the day and I had it mailed directly to her. She informed me when it arrived and she just made it look so stunning as my bouquet wrap with the pearl pins she included. She even made & delivered 2 boutonnieres for my wife to choose from on the day. We got so many wonderful compliments on all of the flowers. I can't recommend Bridget or Violet & Verde enough. She really helped make our day so perfect and I will be singing her praises for a very long time! - Emily H.
When I began my search for a florist, I knew I wanted someone who would listen to my interests, consider my tastes, fine-tune my rough vision, and maybe even educate me in flowers. All I knew was, I liked RED, I liked Roses, and I like things to be a little off beat (maybe even "gothic"), retro, and that I wanted branch centerpieces. I presented this idea to several florists, and VIOLET & VERDE was the only vendor that actually took the time to consider my tastes, turn them around and presented a FLORIST'S expertise! Bridget was inventive, passionate, and incredibly creative! She really opened my eyes to the wide range of possibilities and gave me the most bold, yet tasteful flower arrangements I could have ever asked for. The entire process from start to finish was absolutely a pleasure. She worked with my schedule, met every bit of criteria, worked within my budget, she was punctual, UNBELIEVABLY flexible, and had a welcoming enthusiastic smile throughout the entire process! When it came to the day of, she blew me away with her efficiency, and ability to work under pressure! I will tell you now, you will NOT find a more capable, intelligent, and talented florist. - Krissy K.
