Erin did a fabulous job with the floral arrangements for my wedding. From our first meeting through our wedding day, I felt confident that she would put her all into making the day beautiful. Erin worked with me to develop a vision for my décor, and in our last conversation before the wedding, I could tell that she was just as excited to create the florals as I was to see them. Sensing Erin’s inspiration made me feel at ease and I knew I could rely on her to realize my vision. Erin is not only extremely kind and hardworking, but she is also not afraid to be untraditional in what she creates. I wanted each of my centerpieces to be different, and Erin lived up to the task. Some tables had a single large lush centerpiece while others had assortments of smaller vases on vintage trays. All of the elements – from the fresh flowers to the unique vessels to the way they were all arranged – were thoughtfully chosen and well designed. Each of my bridesmaids also had different bouquets, and I was beyond happy with how beautiful they all came out. Ever since our wedding, our guests still talk about the stunning floral arrangements that Erin designed for us. I was so pleased with Erin’s services, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat! - Elena, Bride

I am one of those people who has to shop around until I find the best, and so I looked at lots and lots of florists before my wedding day. When I came across Erin and her work, I knew that my search was over. She does amazing things with flowers–she can create anything in any style. I especially loved her work in more natural, free-flowing designs that were a little bit untamed. She simply creates the most unreal arrangements, things that you would never think to put together but look incredible as a finished product. Not only did I love her designs, but Erin was incredibly sweet, easy-going, and made working with her so absolutely smooth. She was willing to work with me and come up with solutions that were thoughtful and perfect. But by far the best part of working with Erin was knowing that I could trust her fully and that she would bring my vision to life. I gave Erin extremely vague descriptions of what I liked and didn’t like in our meetings leading up to the wedding, and she showed up on the wedding day with florals that blew me away. They were my vision–and beyond–exactly. I am so happy that I got to work with Erin, and I only wish I had more opportunities to need a bouquet and floral crown! I recommend her a thousand times over–you cannot pick a better floral artist than Erin. - Maya, Bride

Erin has a way with flowers that I find so compelling. She is a true artist that understands that each flower and piece of greenery has a place. They are so perfectly arranged in an organic and natural way. Having worked with her on different weddings and inspiration shoots, I recommend her to everyone I speak to, she truly rises above. - Christa, Invitation Designer

When I learn that a couple has booked Erin to design their wedding, I feel an immediate sense of excitement! She is so intuitive to each couple’s style, needs and personalities and works tirelessly to make sure each detail comes to fruition just the way that they had envisioned it. Erin’s unique sense of style and sweet personality makes the planning process fun and easy. - Jenna, Event Coordinator

Working with Erin is such a treat. She has an eye for floral design unlike anyone else who I’ve ever worked with and her effortless, yet, sumptuous arrangements are a dream to photograph every time. Erin is not only an amazing floral artist but also a delightful person to know and be around. Erin’s passion for her craft and commitment to her clients makes Nectar & Root an obvious choice for floral design. - Christina, Photographer

My job as a wedding photographer is to capture all forms of beauty. And being that I work mostly in New England, natural beauty is everywhere! After five years in the industry, I can say without a doubt that it takes a skilled eye and an incredible amount of talent to add to this natural beauty rather than detract from it. The work that Erin creates is always so flawlessly intertwined with the landscape and natural elements found wherever she’s working, be it a hillside in Vermont or on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Erin’s work always motivates and inspires me, pushing me to be more creative behind the camera. And as for Erin herself, she’s like a breath of fresh air … always in a delightful mood and calm as can be! I can say without a doubt that her talent and style is unmatched, and I would enthusiastically recommend her to any couple who is looking to bring a bit of the beautiful and wild outdoors into their wedding celebration. - Kelly, Photographer

I have had the pleasure of working besides Erin on multiple occasions for multiple events. Her passion and love of florals can be seen in her breathtakingly gorgeous arrangements. She is always smiling, always laughing and always loving while creating her work. She goes above and beyond to source local flowers for creating unbelievable color palettes for each and every one of her clients. It is an experience to work with Erin, one you surely wont forget. I am happy to call her my flower friend. - Chris, Floral Designer

Erin has been coming to the farm for a few years and its always a pleasure to see her. She arrives gets out of her car and takes a deep breath. After all the hugs and hellos she gets her buckets ready and she begins her search for the perfect combination of flowers. Erin is always careful in the gardens and respectful of the work that is put into making the gardens .It always takes her longer then she thinks to pick but in the end I can always see that her designing skills have again conquered. Rain or shine she gets the job done with a smile. The gardens love her and we love her. - Olga, Flower Farmer

My interest in Erin’s work was initially piqued by her combination of sophisticated, elegant technique and playful, adventuresome materials. There is a freshness and innovation in her arrangements that makes her unique among Vermont-based florists. She takes an infectious delight in her craft, and in flowers and beautiful spaces and objects. Her friendly, easy-going demeanor makes her very pleasant to work with, and her broad knowledge of flowers both familiar and rare, their growing seasons, and specialized vendors in Vermont and across the country made her an invaluable resource. I also appreciated her professionalism and her frank and honest discussion of costs; she responded to all of my questions and requests with clarity and poise, and it helped me feel confident in my decisions- and in Erin. The whole process of working with her, from the first phone call to the week of the wedding itself, was a pleasure. That said, nothing—not the beautiful pictures of her past work, not even the gorgeous sample arrangement she put together after our fun early-morning expedition to the flower market—prepared me for the exquisite beauty of the flowers. Even though she gave me exactly what I wanted, they still managed to exceed my expectations. She incorporated details I had mentioned off-handedly many months before, and every component, from garland to centerpieces to boutonnieres to an extraordinary flower crown for our officiant, was both a satisfying realization of a year’s work and a beautiful surprise. - Ash, Groom
