Highly recommend! posted 10/8/2014

What Dreams Are Made Of did an absolutely amazing job transforming our venue into a gorgeous, rustic, romantic atmosphere. Joann and her staff were so pleasant to work with and highly responsive. On the day of the wedding, they came in and created exactly what I was envisioning! We couldn't have been happier!

Excellent service posted 8/28/2014

Hands down did an amazing job!!! I would highly recommend for any occasion. They did all of my bouquets and center pieces and they looked beautiful. I'm terrible with flowers and had no idea what I wanted and they helped me pick out everything and gave great suggestions. It was stress free and very enjoyable working with them and they made my wedding look amazing!!

Disappointed. posted 8/19/2014 (modified 10/8/2014)

Cherry Brandy Designs was definitely great for helping my fiancé and I stay within our budget. They created beautiful centerpieces for cocktail hour and helped my vision come to light with the table centerpieces; I just provided them the materials. JoAnn was very communicative in the beginning and reached out to me to make sure that everything was squared away.

However, I requested specific hydrangea for my bouquet and bridal bouquets and that is not what I received. The church pew flowers were not what I expected either; smaller and not wrapped with silk ribbon like we had discussed. I was so wrapped up in my day I didn't notice until I saw pictures!

My tossing bouquet never appeared and my mom was supposed to receive another wrist corsage, which also did not happen. My bouquet also started to fall apart during pictures.

All that I can say was I was disappointed in this vendor.

Vendor Comments

I would like to address this review. First of all, thank you for the kind words in the beginning of this review. As far as your toss bouquet and your mom's extra corsage (which, by the way, was an upgrade on the corsage, and you were not charged fo...

Miracle Worker! posted 10/6/2013

What Dreams May Come saved my wedding, and Cherry Brandy Designs was a huge part of that salvation. I was orphaned less than two weeks before my wedding by my original coordinator, and when she disappeared, so did my floral arrangements. Cherry Brandy Designs stepped in, redesigned everything, and even found me a few stems of a rare flower that I saw a week before the wedding. She was knowledgeable about low pollen flowers (there were many guests with allergies), was sensitive to my needs, and was insanely fun and professional to work with. As with What Dreams May Come, my only regret was not finding her sooner!

Everything we dreamed of posted 10/6/2013

We hired JoAnn to be our wedding planner. While searching for vendors, she mentioned that she also owned Cherry Brandy Designs. She certainly did not push us into using them. It made our life so much easier. When meeting with JoAnn, we also were able to talk about decor, which was a blessing for saving on time. But time wasn't the most important savings. JoAnn and Heidi saved us so much money. We had a vision and it was so far out of our reach. We were able to substitute flowers for more reasonable ones without compromising on the look. We could not have been happier. Our flowers arrived beautiful and fresh. What we loved most was that unlike florists, they only took on our wedding that day. They were there for set up, and stayed there all day, repurposing our ceremony flowers into cocktail hour and for freshening up my bouquet after my "large italian" family got done with our receiving line. We were totally happy with the beauty of our day. Thank you Heidi and JoAnn for making our day everything we dreamed of.

Beautiful! posted 10/6/2013

From the beginning Heidi was so great. She was always there when I had questions and she had all the answers. Her knowledge on flowers blew my mind away. My centerpieces were incredible, I received so many compliments on them. My bouquet took my breath away. It was everything I could have dreamed of and more. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Beautiful flowers! posted 10/3/2013

My flowers were fresh and beautiful. I had a small budget for this aspect of my wedding but Cherry Brandy Designs worked with me by keeping me on budget to assisting me make affordable floral arrangements and yet very pretty flowers. The prices just can't be beat, and the quality was amazing. I received many compliments on the floral arrangements and bouquets at my wedding. Best of all a beautiful rose arrangement was placed around my recently deceased mothers picture which brought it to life and made it so special. Bottom line the work is exceptional and the prices can't be beat. Thank You Cherry Brandy Designs!

Our August Wedding posted 10/3/2013

I had THE most wonderful, beautiful flowers ever! The theme of my wedding was summer, romance, whimsical, and our flowers were all of those and more. They were planted in beautiful BHLDN planters that I had ordered and Heidi did an amazing job making them look so beautiful. As for my bouquet, it was exactly what I wanted. Pastel colors went so well with everything at our wedding! LOVED IT ALL!

Beautiful flowers! posted 10/2/2013

I can't say enough good things about the flowers at my wedding. Cherry Brandy did my centerpieces and bouquets. I thought they were gorgeous. We had a rustic outdoor wedding and the centerpieces she made with mason jars, burlap, flowers, etc. were perfect, and I absolutely loved my bouquet. Prices were very reasonable and they worked with me to stay within my budget. I would definitely recommend them for other couples.

I'm so happy we went with Cherry Brandy Designs for our wedding flowers. We knew we wouldn't have to look any further as soon as they showed us the sample centerpiece: a pumpkin with sunflowers and mums coming out of it. We were having a fall-themed wedding and everything was absolutely perfect -- all of our bouquets look stunning in the photos, and the guys' sunflower boutonnieres were adorable. They even decorated the aisle and archway with flowers and mini-pumpkins. I'm told that some guests were fighting over who got to take the pumpkin centerpieces home. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better designer than Heidi. She truly made our vision of an autumn wedding a reality.
