Featured Wedding Florist: Beneva

Beneva Weddings has been committed to local brides and grooms for 35 years, helping them conjure up the wedding of their dreams, using flowers and greens as the medium. With over 50 years of combined experience, our team’s design knowledge and creativity are extensive, and it’s constantly being refined. When we’re not educating other florists, we’re educating ourselves.


What We Offer:

We bring to the table (and everywhere else) everything from flowering ceremony arches to pool floats made of florals. From aisle treatments to chair decor, centerpieces, place cards and more, we make your wedding beautiful through flowers.

Our Wedding Style Is:

We customize our floral designs and decor to each and every bride who walks through the door and pride ourselves on never saying no to anything. The strength of our team and our deep roots in the floral industry enable us to accommodate any vision. Our level of expert customization, along with our service, is what has earned us the Sarasota Herald Tribune’s Reader’s Choice Award 19 years in a row for stunning wedding flower designs. We aim to not only please but impress, working within your budget to achieve that “Wow” factor and giving you highly-personalized attention along the way.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We buy our flowers direct from the farm and fresh from all over the world. The quality of our florals is top-notch, and yet we’re still able to offer competitive wedding flower pricing to our clients. Whether it’s the most romantic occasion of your life, a huge corporate gala, or a milestone birthday, we’re here to translate your floral fantasies into reality.

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

The size of our operation and the rental resources we provide.

We wanted a florist who could look at our vision and make it come to life. With Beneva Weddings, we just showed them the theme we were going for and let them make the decisions. We had no particular flower or design we were looking for; we just knew our colors and that we wanted limited decor. We let the flowers be more of the decor and centerpieces and chose Beneva because we got to work with the florist, Samantha. She really brought our ideas to life and seemed genuinely excited to take on our project.

Elegant Coral and Pink Tropical Sarasota Wedding | The Resort at Longboat Key Club

When I started to look at flowers, I absolutely loved the idea of potted white orchids, and I wanted an all-white orchid bouquet, but I just couldn’t get away from my love for color!

After talking about my ideas with Beneva Weddings, I was so happy that I would be able to incorporate orchids and many different tropical flowers, such as ginger root and palm leaves, into our design.

Working with Beneva Weddings was a dream. They understood my vision right away! They were able to incorporate my love for white orchids while still using pops of color with colorful tropical flowers throughout our design. We were blown away by our beautiful flower semi-arch at our ceremony and the amazing bridal and bridesmaids bouquet they created for us! Corona was incredibly easy to work with, and she was always willing to make adjustments. As an out-of-town bride, I loved that all the proposals included photos of what the floral designs would look like, so I could visualize what I would see on the wedding day.

Our priorities were creativity and staying within our budget. Beneva Weddings was one of the preferred vendors for our venue.

Beneva Weddings exceeded my expectations because it's hard to know what the flowers are going to actually look like when you put every piece together, but it turned out better than I could have imagined, and I was in love with my bouquet! They were happy to change things until we created the perfect combination of florals.

The best, Beneva Weddings for sure. We knew that our ceremony arch was atypical and easy to mess up. They nailed it. No regrets here.
