We are devoted to guiding you throughout your entire design process. Whether you have chosen to hold your celebration in a rustic barn, lakeside meadow, mountaintop, or your own backyard, we will plan and design with you from the start until you are elegantly down the aisle.

We believe floral details are an essential ingredient for setting a personal tone throughout your wedding. We enjoy creating garden inspired designs of grace and magic by closely watching not only the freshest flowers but the wonderful marriage of foliage, moss, berries, and branches unique to each season.

We look forward to working with you and ultimately attending to every design and floral detail of your special day.

Favorite Moment During a Wedding: It’s very hard to choose just one, but perhaps the moment I see complete joy as I present our bride her bouquet!

Favorite Vermont Activity: I enjoy exploring Vermont towns, preferably with a beautiful quiet pond for kayaking.

Love Notes

The best in Vermont

January 18, 2024

I can’t say enough good things about Nancy and her team. Their floral designs on our wedding day absolutely knocked it out of the park. I still daydream about my wedding bouquet and wish I had preserved it SO BADLY. She was communicative, organized, detail-oriented, and so thorough. She really helped keep things on track during our wedding day and timeline, and was able to pivot when we had to make a last minute rain plan decision. Please, do yourself a favor and hire Nancy immediately for your wedding day florals. She is the best in Vermont!

An absolute pleasure to work with

A Schoolhouse Garden was an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding day. Nancy is incredibly knowledgable and talented and was able to pull together my random thoughts into a beautiful, cohesive picture. She spent quality time with me months before the wedding learning about my style, vision, and personality. The staff were timely, professional and helpful on our wedding day – and I was able to get a boutonniere for my “Best Dog” too (worth it)!

I couldn't have imagined anything better!

I cannot recommend A Schoolhouse Garden enough! I know absolutely NOTHING about flowers, and Nancy was truly amazing, and never made me feel less-than for not knowing what I wanted. I gave her very little to work with when planning my wedding – I basically gave her colors of my bridesmaids dresses and that I like eucalyptus, and she created the most beautiful vision board I could have asked for.

Nancy was so easy to work with, especially considering we were planning our Vermont wedding from Austin, TX so we couldn’t make trips up to plan with her in person. We gave her basically free reign with her vision, and our wedding day flowers was absolutely perfect. I literally started crying when I saw all the bouquets because they were so beautiful. The tables were gorgeous, the bouquets were gorgeous, the arbor was gorgeous… I literally couldn’t have imagined it any better!

Nancy and her team are extraordinary!

January 18, 2024

They were creative, communicative, and so incredibly fun to work with. They were mindful of our budget, so incredibly thoughtful with the design proposal, listened to every piece of feedback, and incorporated every inspiration image we sent throughout the months of working together. At the same time that they were receptive to direction, they were also so generative with their ideas and had tremendous vision to bring them all to reality. One of the best parts for me is that they always seemed excited about working together and brought such care and attention to detail to every interaction. The results were beyond words and our wildest imaginations! The florals truly took my breath away and were my favorite element of the wedding. I could not recommend A Schoolhouse Garden more highly.

No Title

January 18, 2024

Nancy and her team were phenomenal from start to finish. She surprised me with her level of service throughout the entire process. Firstly, she’s obviously an expert in her field and was extremely helpful in developing our vision for florals for our wedding. She guided me towards some decisions based on her knowledge and experience, which made the process much smoother. Not only that, but after our long covid delay, she let me entirely change the vision and then somehow absolutely nailed the aesthetic after just a single phone call! Two giant bonuses that demonstrate the level of service Nancy and her team provide: First, Julia coordinated with the bridal party in order to affix boutonnieres onto the men’s suits at the appropriate time while getting ready. Such an undervalued service!! After spending too long struggling and watching videos at our sibling’s recent wedding, this was major! Second, the team returned after our reception to re-create bouquets out of all of our centerpieces, which were placed throughout our brunch for decor and for guests to take home with them. The bouquets were stunning and our friends and family within driving distance were totally thrilled. (I even got texts with photos over a week later with people exclaiming how impressed they were that the bouquets were lasting so long!) We thought everything was very reasonably priced for extremely high quality work and would recommend A Schoolhouse Garden to anyone and everyone!
