Whimsical. Naturalistic. Off-Beat. Fresh. Sustainable. These are all words that can describe wedding flowers designed by Blue Door Flower Farm. We grow the majority of our flowers right here in Woodstock, Vermont, with support from other local and semi-local flower farms throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, and beyond in order to deliver and design seasonal, local flowers that are deeply personalized and distinctive.
Our flowers are grown using low-till and environmentally-friendly practices which allow pollinators to thrive on our farm, while also creating rich, healthy soil that allows us to grow our bountiful blooms! In addition to growing a majority of our flowers right here on-site, we pride ourselves in avoiding the use of toxic floral foams and single-use plastics wherever possible. All organic floral materials are composted right here on our farm, and we reuse vessels and containers as much as possible.
We love working with couples seeking a personalized atmosphere filled with whimsy and beauty. Due to our commitment to providing the freshest, locally-grown, sustainable blooms for our couples, our primary wedding services are currently offered during the Vermont growing season: from approximately the second week of May through the last week of October. With the addition of a high tunnel in the next year, we hope to extend our growing season in the future. We also maintain multiple wholesale relationships with other local and semi-local growers, as well as sourcing specialty and hard-to-find blooms internationally. We offer year-round wedding and event floral design.

Before booking, please review our wedding contract.
Full Bloom Package
We offer year-round floral design services, and only work with couples who truly value the importance of adding high-end florals to their wedding experience. The Full Bloom wedding service option includes all of the bells and whistles you can expect from a florist-event design, rentals, and florals for your special day!
What sets Blue Door Flower Co. apart from other wedding florists is that we strive to grow the majority of your wedding flowers here at our flower farm in Woodstock, Vermont. We often purchase seed specifically for your event. This is a labor of love, and creates a unique experience that will make your wedding incredibly personal and memorable. We maintain close partnerships with a select group of fellow growers and farmers, as well as wholesalers, to ensure that we go above-and-beyond your wildest dreams.
Full Bloom is the ultimate floral wedding package. Emma will work closely with you to select colors, create a custom mood board, provide an itemized proposal, and more to curate the wedding of your dreams. Full Bloom is a full-service wedding florals package, which may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Personals (Bridal + Bridesmaid Bouquets, Boutonnieres + Corsages)

All line items are subject to a 6% Vermont Sales and Use Tax.
A La Carte
Blue Door Flower Farm offers an A La Carte wedding package for the couple who wishes to hand-select the florals they want for their wedding day.

If you want gorgeous florals for your wedding day, with great service minus the fuss, this is the option for you!
Couples who choose this package can expect to spend anywhere from $500-$5,000 for their wedding flowers. As with the Full Bloom options, the majority of flowers will be grown sustainably right here, at Blue Door Flower Farm. Couples who choose this option entrust Blue Door with choosing specific colors and florals for their wedding day.
The A La Carte Package is available for reservation up to 12 months in advance of your event. This option does not include delivery or breakdown. Clients are entitled to one, 1-hour complimentary phone consultation. Additional consultations are by appointment only, and are subject to an hourly rate. Details outlined in client contract.
There is a $500 minimum for A La Carte weddings which does not include the delivery fee or breakdown. If this is needed or requested, there will be an additional fee. Pick-up at the farm is preferred.
Emma was so amazing to work with! She took the time to get to know me and my now husband’s story in order to make the most perfect wedding bouquet. It was everything I wanted and more. She exceeded all of my expectations and made it so much fun and stress free in the process. I’ve known Emma since college and it was amazing to see her do what she truly loves and is so passionate about. The flowers completed my special day. Thank you Emma
New Client Questionnaire: Get cozy with your love, and take some time to fill out the New Client Questionnaire. You don’t need to know all of the answers, but this is a great way for me to get to know you and your vision. I ask that you and your fiance fill this out just the two of you. We can invite others into the process later on, but it’s important for me to understand your vision as a couple.
Follow-Up and Preliminary Proposal: I will follow-up with an email confirming that I received your questionnaire. From there, I will start working on your preliminary proposal. This could take anywhere from a day to a week depending on how many other proposals and events I have at that time. I will always communicate openly with you so you aren’t waiting for an answer. All images and colors used in the proposal are simply for inspiration; your wedding will be completely customized.
Proposal Review and Retainer: You have up to one week to review the proposal and reach out with any changes you’d like to see. I will reserve your date for that week pending your response. If everything aligns with your vision and budget, we will set up a complimentary, one-hour phone call or meeting to go over the proposal and make final adjustments. Once you sign the contract and proposal, and send in your retainer deposit, your date will be reserved. Please note: your date is not reserved until the retainer fee and signed proposal/contract are received.
Planning: The planning really begins! This is the fun part, where I really tweak your proposal to fit, and hopefully surpass, your vision.
The Fine Print:
I highly suggest reaching out to Blue Door as soon as possible so that I can not only reserve your date, but have ample time to plan and design. Full-service weddings should be booked at least 12 months in advance; elopements and micro-weddings at least 3-6 months out.
Our time together includes the initial, complimentary consultation; one planned site visit; and two follow-up phone calls. Additional meetings, site visits, and conversations are subject to a $45/hour rate, in addition to the IRS mileage rate. It is important that you jot down any questions and ideas ahead of setting up a conversation to get the most out of our time together. Brief emails are totally fine, but anything that requires a lengthier response needs to be an appointment. My “office hours” are on Tuesday evenings between 5:00-8:00 EST, and Friday mornings between 9:00-12:00 EST. I am not able to accommodate times outside of those unless it is an absolute emergency.
Please do not skip reading through the entire contract. It is very important for all stakeholders to understand the process! My contract is very detailed, and outlines almost every possible scenario, question, and so on that may come up.
