Gorgeous !!!Reviewed on 5/30/2014 Yvette R
All I can say is WOW!! I am not knowledgable in flowers so, I had no clue what I wanted. All I knew is I did not want roses. I made an appointment with Lisa. I explained to Lisa that I didn't know what I wanted. Lisa started with questions such as color, dress, favorite flowers, etc. With just the simply questions, Lisa was naming and showing card(pictures). Exposing what flowers went with what. I could tell Lisa knew what she was doing. One month prior to the wedding, I saw a sample. I loved it!! The day of the wedding, I was able to see the bouquets before the ceremony. They were amazing. When I saw the center pieces, I was amazed ! Everything was gorgeous! Everyone loved the flowers. I loved everything ! I recommend A Touch of Elegance!!!
Amazing Wedding Florist!Reviewed on 4/14/2014 Brianna D
My wedding venue recommended to us A Touch of Elegance and they truly did an amazing job! Lisa was great to work with, she was extremely friendly and really listened to what we wanted and envisioned for our wedding. My husband was very particular with the centerpieces and Lisa worked with him to create a stunning arrangement for us. I had antique brooches in my bouquet that Lisa did a fantastic job incorporating and had an additional few sentimental items that were added into my bouquet last minute. The ladies that dropped off the flowers added those in so quickly and without hesitation for me which I really appreciated. A Touch of Elegance lives up to their name and I highly recommend them for your wedding.
Perfect Pink and Pop!Reviewed on 1/05/2014 Lexie L
For my wedding, I had a vision of hot pink pops, bling, and feathers! Lisa made my vision come true. It was absolutely amazing! My favorite flower is a gerbera daisy and Lisa delivered the most vibrant hot pink daisies! They popped perfectly against my white dress and the bridesmaids black dresses, and the hot pink gerberas also popped against the men's black tux's. Lisa also provided flowers for the mothers, fathers, and grandparents. At the ceremony we had this crystal archway with hanging bling, candles, and bright white feathers at the top to give it a touch a diva! At the reception, we had alternating centerpieces, some black vases with tall white feathers, draped with bling, and the other tables with square vases with a black bling buckle with hot pink gerberas! We couldn't have been happier!!
My husband and I used A Touch of Elegance for our wedding back at the end of May and are so glad we did! From the moment we met Lisa and explained what we wanted, she ran with it and was definitely on the same page as us... our visions matched and made our choice of choosing a florist easy. Lisa knows what she is doing! We saw a sample of our centerpiece about a month before and loved it... and on the day of, it was replicated exactly. And I loveddd my bridal bouquet -- it was so vibrant and like nothing I've ever seen before. Only slight setback was, for the bridesmaids' bouquets, one of the flowers we had selected to be put in the bouquet amongst a mix of colors was supposed to be a true ivory. But the morning of, the flower that arrived was much more of a yellow cream color. We were told that Lisa said she didn’t think that was the color we wanted and they actually sent another selection of flowers with the bouquet delivery in an ivory to be switched out if we wanted. Unfortunately though, that particular flower was also being used for the groomsmen boutonnieres and we wanted their flower color to match the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Flowers were brought to switch out the bouquets, but not the boutonnieres so we didn’t want to change just the bouquets. So we just said oh well and cream color flower turned out to look good overall anyway. Would definitely recommend A Touch of Elegance!
10 stars if I could!!! My wedding was on 8.7.2015 at Liberty House Restaurant, Jersey City, NJ. I was a nervous wreck, as the bride, with all my vendors. From the get-go to the finality it was a very smooth transaction with ATOE. I worked with Lisa P. who was very easy and understanding to work with- Many many many Thanks to her Company and Staff !!! Unbelievable! I already had ideas of all my floral arrangements, from the ceremony flowers, to the place card table, cocktail tables and centerpieces...ATOE delivered More and Then Some!!!! The setting and all floral arrangements were much more than I expected!!! Everything Was So Beautiful!!! It's beyond words I must say. All my wedding guests commented on how beautiful the florals were! They were elegant, classy, unique and romantic. To me, Flowers are the final touches in a wedding and it's what makes the whole place beautiful. But ATOE gives it that extra final touch :) Well worth it, and you get much much more for what you pay for in the end!!! Trust me ;) ATOE - Well Done!!! You guys ROCK! Lara
Our wedding venue recommended A Touch of Elegance as one of their preferred vendors. At first, I was skeptical as I was certain that since it was preferred, the prices would be higher. All I can say is that now, after using Lisa and A Touch of Elegance for our wedding on May 17th, I would recommend using it to ALL brides! Lisa used information such as wedding colors, bridesmaids dresses, and details on my dress to create absolutely stunning centerpieces for the reception. She worked with my budget and created three different designs (a high, medium, and low) to help create movement around the room instead of having the same centerpiece at every table. She even recreated my bouquet from a picture on Pinterest that I had fallen in love with! The centerpieces, my bouquet, and all other flowers I used looked absolutely stunning on my wedding day. I would HIGHLY recommend Lisa and A Touch of Elegance to any bride!!
Lisa provided a perfect creative vision for our wedding! From the moment we met, she completely understood my style and the feeling we wanted for our wedding. Even crazier - several of the photos I'd found on Pinterest and brought to our first meeting we actually her designs! The bouquets were gorgeous and really lasted even beyond the wedding day. The centerpieces were huge and also beautiful - we received many compliments from guests. Lisa was also incredibly knowledgeable about the venue and the industry which was a blessing. Seeing our stress level in the final meeting, she recommended an incredible day of coordinator which really made everything run smoothly. Couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you!!
Gorgeous!Reviewed on 6/17/2015 Alex S
We used A Touch of Elegance for the flowers for our wedding on June 13th and they did an amazing job! We worked with Lisa and she was so helpful and accommodating throughout the whole process. She understood exactly what we were looking for and she definitely delivered! She did a beautiful job and we received so many compliments on everything from our ceremony flowers to the centerpieces. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you, Lisa!
I know nothing about flowers and design and Lisa was such an amazing partner!! She talked me through different ideas and concepts and had cards to help give me a visual and she is just overall such an experienced professional. She was absolutely GREAT to work with. Always got back to me quickly. And made more than a few tweaks when I wasn't sure how I felt. All of my centerpieces and bouquets turned out AMAZING!! BEAUTIFUL!! I can't thank her enough!! Even my venue, who she is a preferred vendor for, says that you can always tell when Lisa has done an event for them, because everything is just beautiful! And it was!! Thank you for making my day absolutely perfect!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LISA AND A TOUCH OF ELEGANCE!!!
The Best in the BusinessReviewed on 12/01/2014 Lyndsay B
I found Lisa after stumbling upon a wedding she had done in the past. Her creativity and honesty is unparalleled. She was able to help bring my vision to reality all while staying in my budget. She was patient with my numerous questions, and my flowers and centerpieces were even more beautiful in person than I had expected.
Absolutely loved the work they did!!Reviewed on 7/27/2014 Guadalupe S
If you are looking for someone who will make your dreams come true go see Lisa. She was amazing and truly wonderful to work with. She delivered exactly what was promised. On the day of the wedding the rhinestones were missing from one of the bouquets but they came right back and delivered it. Truly professional!! So glad we went with A touch of Elegance. Highly recommend them for your wedding day!
Absolutely incredibly work!Reviewed on 7/01/2014 Jennifer S
Lisa is amazing! I know nothing about flowers, design, decoration and even color names... Lisa made my vision come to life with only a few photos and a confused bride. Her flower arrangements were more beautiful than I could have expected or imagined. The bouquets were perfect for myself and my bridesmaids and they matched the girls dresses perfectly! I cannot thank Lisa enough for taking the time to work with me and make my dreams come true! I have recommended her for all of my friends getting married and I recommend her to anyone! Her work is unique and inspired :)
Took my breath awayReviewed on 1/02/2014 Sharon S
After meeting Lisa I knew she understood exactly what I was looking for. To be honest there was a few hiccups in communication and I was a bit worried things might get mixed up on our big day but she REALLY came through. When I came down the isle it was the first time I saw everything all set up and my breath was taken away; not just mine but my bridesmaids said the same It was better than I could have imagined. She did a great job taking our budget and making it look like we spent double. I couldn't have asked for a better ceremony and reception space. Every guest I spoke to said the ceremony was so beautiful it looked like something out of a story book romance. You will not be disappointed if you go with ATOE!
Wonderful!Reviewed on 11/07/2013 Kimberly F
Lisa did an absolutely wonderful job on the flowers for my wedding. She was thorough and responsive throughout the planning process. Her creativity helped us create a very beautiful setting and she definitely went the extra mile.
BEAUTIFUL!!Reviewed on 8/08/2013 Melanie
Lisa and her team are INCREDIBLE at what they do! For my July wedding, ATOE provided ceremony flowers, bouquets (which even the groomsmen commented on how gorgeous they were), corsages, and boutonnieres, reception centerpieces, room uplighting, charger plates, a gobo (our names in the middle of the dance floor), and my favorite: the most amazing table for the placecards with flowers, candles and bling! When I went to meet with Lisa for the first time, she understood EXACTLY what I wanted and after a couple sketches, created the wedding design I dreamed of! Her experience shines through in all of her work, and she is honest about what will and won't look good. She is responsive to questions and emails and respects the budget that she is given. I am pretty controlling at times, but I felt like I could hand my entire wedding over to Lisa and A Touch of Elegance and it would be BEAUTIFUL.
Our Wedding Flowers and DecorReviewed on 7/07/2013 Emily S
I loved working with Lisa from ATOE. I had no idea what my "vision" was when planning my wedding flowers, but Lisa and her team made my wedding dreams come to life. Not only did she arrange the most beautiful flowers, but she also created a family tree as a centerpiece for our table with the escort cards. The family tree was so well crafted, and had pictures of all our family members on it that we provided to her. My husband and I wanted a way to remember those family members that have passed, and the family tree really made this possibly, and touched us when we saw it. Lisa was so easy to work with, and also so friendly. I did not ONCE worry about my flowers. I HIGHLY recommend using them for your wedding. You will not be disappointed!
Beautiful!Reviewed on 7/04/2013 Lisa F
Lisa is amazing she knows exactly what will look great together and will work with your budget. The colors and quality were fantastic. The bridesmaid bouquets were stunning! Lisa and her team are amazing at what they do!
Beautiful Centerpieces, Bouquets & Ceremony Decor!Reviewed on 6/26/2013 Sarah C
I worked with Lisa at a Touch of Elegance & was very satisfied with my experience! I gave Lisa a budget to stay within and she did so without any pressure to pay more than I was comfortable with. She offered expert advice on how to have different sized centerpieces flow throughout the room, created a beautiful piece for the table that held our table cards and decorated our ceremony perfectly! I recommend for any bride looking to stay within budget but who also wants the room to pop. Sarah & Jesse Loughlin- married 9/29/12
Amazing Florist!Reviewed on 3/18/2013 Samantha D
Lisa at a Touch of Elegance was a pleasure to work with for our wedding!!! She provided the flowers at the wedding of a friend of ours so we decided to meet with her to discuss our wedding as well and I am so happy we did! The first time we met I told her that we had a budget we wanted to stay within and she was more than willing to work with us and help us achieve the look we were going for, while staying within our budget. She was THE ONLY florist I met with who not only described to me what she had in mind for our centerpieces, but she drew up a sketch as well!!!! I am a visual person so this was extremely helpful. I showed Lisa some pictures of centerpieces and arrangements I liked and gave her some colors to work with and she created 2 unique and beautiful centerpieces for our reception. We had alternating high and low centerpieces and the room looked absolutely beautiful. My bouquet was amazing with peacock feathers, and the bridesmaids bouquets were perfect!!!!

LovelyReviewed on 11/05/2012 Samantha F
Lisa and her team are great. I am not a bridezilla but I totally have a hard time making up my mind, and poor Lisa had to deal with my inability to keep my ideas straight. Once I finally made up my mind she did exactly what I wanted, simple but elegant, The colors everything was perfect!
Amazing Work! Very happy BrideReviewed on 10/18/2012 Elizabeth S

STUNNING tables &amp; center pieces!Reviewed on 9/24/2012 Daniela C
I had to take a step back when i first entered the room, it was stunning! Lisa is a creative genius! She is great to work with. A touch of elegance delivered everything I ever wanted and MORE! from the linens, to my chargers, to the three different center pieces she designed for me. Everything was picture perfect! I would definitely recommend a touch of elegance to any bride. I went in to my first meeting undecided on what i wanted and she took the time to sit with me and go over different options. they are truly amazing!
Everything I dreamed of!!Reviewed on 7/17/2012 adriana p
Lisa is the best!! I saw her work at a bridal expo and just new she was the florist for me! She is so creative!! I went into the first meeting maybe a little jaded because I brought in pictures from magazines with HUGE centerpieces thinking that my budget would cover something of that grand size, I was wrong, but did not leave that meeting disappointed one bit. I told Lisa my budget right away and she worked very well in that budget. She told me were to cut back, like in the church since you are there for such a short amount of time we just kept it simple with 10 tall glass holders with candles and flower petals- beautiful and simple. To keep with flowers that are in season so you don't have to have them shipped from other countries really keeps cost down as well. She suggested half high and half low centerpieces to cut the cost and to add more interest throughout the ballroom instead of the same exact tall centerpieces on every table. I first chose these pretty crystal vases for the tall centerpieces but she then suggested to go with a simple glass vase and have crystal candles hang from them so we can put more of my budget into the flowers and make the centerpieces bigger instead of putting that money into the vase that no one but me would probably notice anyway. I am so glad we made that change the final product was amazing!! She got the exact shades of pink that I wanted - nothing too bright and tacky, very romantic. She told me were not to skimp like my bouquet, our sweetheart table, and the tablecloths. The tablecloths that we picked out really tied my vision together instead of using the venues basic white table cloths, we ordered pink shimmer crinkle tablecloths that were so pretty, added depth to the tables and made my wedding feel not like the cookie cutter decor. My escort card table was perfect - trays of crystals that held the cards surrounded by pink rose petals and candles, really was a nice preview of what my guests were going to see in the ballroom. I LOVED LOVED LOOVED my bouquet!! Large full pink peonies with crystal accents. I couldn't find a picture with the exact shade of pink I wanted but she nailed the color of my bouquet that I had in my head! I was so happy when I saw it. The girls bouquets were the perfect size, not small at all. The complementary toss bouquet was better than most I have seen, not just flower heads tucked into that stupid bouquet holder but an actual small tied bouquet. That is something most people wouldn't even care or think about how it looks but the fact that she made it a nice small actual bouquet really says something about how much she cares about the smallest details of her clients special day. Since I got ready at my venue I could see her staff bringing in the centerpieces and setting them all up. Lisa isn't the only person who cares about the small details, her whole staff does. They were opening up flowers and assembling them in the ballroom so they were as fresh as possible. I would recommended Lisa and her staff to anyone and hope to work with her on another event!!
Great centerpieces, okay boutinneresReviewed on 3/27/2012 Jessica S
Our centerpieces were beautiful and so were our corsages. However, the groomsmen's boutinneres were just okay. My husband's started to fall a apart before the ceremony even began. My bouquet was also not quite what I expected. It was nice; but some of the flowers looked like they were dying a little. However, no one other then me really noticed.
