Robert Fraser IV and Joseph Barragan

Understanding your Vision | Creating your Dream


We grew up in very different regions of the United States (Rob in Tidewater, Virginia and Joseph in El Paso, Texas.) Fortunately, married  life brought us to an idyllic location on the banks of the York River where our guests may be seated in a 1730's chair while sipping a cocktail from a 1930's glass.

Our home, Riverwood Cottage, is decorated with a unique blend of antiques and collectibles that span the past 300 years. We love to pair treasured, centuries-old family heirlooms with kitschy castoffs to create spaces that are inviting, comfortable, and tell stories.  Our style can definitely be described as traditional with a twist.

RIVERWOOD DESIGN-ers  Joseph Barragan and Robert Fraser IV

In our professional lives we have worked in the fields of education and retail management, but have always found great joy in entertaining friends and family. Our foray into the world of floral design and event planning is organic; it has grown out of increasingly frequent requests from friends for help with events, decorating, and floral design. We bring to Riverwood Designs a stellar understanding of relationship building and the promise of exemplary customer service. We will approach your wedding or event with the same enthusiasm that we approached our 2011 nuptial brunch celebration; your event will be as important as an event for our friends.  Working together, we form a dynamic, creative, and  efficient team who will bring positive energy to your event or design project.  Don't hesitate to text, call, or email us to schedule your free consultation.

WE truly look forward to understanding your vision and creating your dream.

All of the floral designs on this website were designed and created by Riverwood Designs, LLC.
