My husband and I knew we would be using Joy the minute we walked into her shop. We'd been recommended to her after we complimented my best friend on her centerpieces at her wedding in May. She immediately said,' when you start planning you must go to Joy' and that's exactly... Read More what we did. I had already had a few idea's in mind (thank you Pinterest) and we knew our budget. We showed Joy our photos and immediately she had already pulled up 3 flowers she thought would be perfect AND in in our $$ range. In less than an hour, we had everything written down and the contract signed. It was one of the easiest and most exciting parts of wedding planning for us. I never once felt that i was loosing out or compromising due to my budget bc Joy made sure we got the exact same look and feel. Aside from the guests, the flowers bring life to the venue and the event! Joy and her staff went ABOVE and BEYOND our expectations. People were arguing over who'd take the centerpieces home the minute they walked in and the entire bridal party received nothing but compliments on their bouquets and boutonnieres (which Joy designed her self and had us drooling over from the minute she showed us her idea- hypericum berries with rosemary). The flowers brought the entire look of the bridal party together- I can't even begin to tell you how overwhelmed and impressed I was with my bridal bouquet. I had wanted a blush-tone (antique) looking bouquet with peonies but since it was a Nov wedding Joy was hesitant to promise peonies and so she made a beautiful suggestion of a rose that looked just the same. Well she arrived with a bouquet of antique blush roses and PEONIES!!! I knew i immediately would be having my bouquet preserved so that I can admire it for years to come. Thank you Joy, you'll never know how important you really were to our wedding experience and to the entire feel of our day.

Completely Magical!

I simply do not have enough kind words to say about Joy and ELEGANT DESIGNS BY JOY. From start to finish Joy took to heart my vision and made it come true. I have recommended her to everyone I know and will continue to seek out her services for all future events. Our Wedding... Read More was on Friday, Oct 23, 2015 at Stonebridge Golf and Country Club. It was a gorgeous Autumn day that was further accented by the beautiful pieces Joy created. The theme of our wedding was "books and love stories". My bouquet had book page roses dotted through with gold baby's breath and "free spirit" roses. It was exactly what I had been envisioning all along and when I saw it come to life... I teared up. My girls wore dark plum gowns and the bouquets Joy created with sunflowers and autumn blooms in yellows, oranges, and purples just popped in every photo. The girls were obsessed with their bouquets and with good reason, not only were they absolutely gorgeous but they were light weight enough for them to be comfortable holding throughout pictures and the ceremony. My bridesmen and groomsmen had the most unusual and ornate boutonnieres that incorporated fiddle-head ferns, and the groom had a book page rose incorporated into his design. The ceremony took place in an altar covered in blooms and the reception/cocktail area were also full of gorgeous, lush and beautiful flowers in an amazing variety of shades. I absolutely loved the use of hydrangeas within our centerpieces as they have long been a favorite of mine! It seemed that within every decision and every detail Joy had my best interests in mind and stayed completely true to the vision I had. Every guest noticed and appreciated the beauty of it all. I cannot thank Joy and her team enough for all that they did to ensure I had a perfect day! I could not be happier!

The best decision we made!

Working with Joy for our wedding was such a pleasure! She really loves what she does and it shows! Our flowers looked amazing!! From our first meeting she immediately got our vision and went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. I am still in awe even now almost a week... Read More later as I look at my bouquet in my kitchen! :) We had to move our dinner inside that day due to weather and she transformed the dining room with her beautiful centerpieces. Even our bathroom arrangements were spectacular! She even added some special touches that we didn't ask for such as throwing rose petals down the aisle at our ceremony site which looked incredible. Everyone at our wedding was in awe. We've never seen anything look so elegant, so romantic, so perfect. She worked within our budget and went above and beyond! Thank you for making our day so very special! I would recommend Joy to anyone that is getting married (and already have! ).

I cannot begin to describe the pure beauty that is Elegant Design by Joy. Now try to understand that as someone who is ALLERGIC to flowers, this part of planning our wedding came very low on the totem pole. All we wanted was a centerpiece for each table, bouquets for our girls... Read More and boutonnieres for our men. Joy had told me that any extras I had bought on my own she would gladly set up. Let me tell you something, Joy managed to take our very fake and artificial fall foliage purchased at Christmas tree shop and turn them into something out of a fairy tale. Saying my jaw dropped would be an understatement. And to put the icing on the cake, the day before our wedding I received an email from Joy stating nothing other than wishing me a stress free day. Purely selfless and so professional. Day of our wedding Joy arrived and did everything without me even knowing. After she was done she personally hand delivered mine and my girls bouquets to our bridal suite. 7 including my own, and on her own adding a special touch to my sisters. Our main centerpiece arrangements were breathtaking. They were a compilation of fall floral with greenery all coming out of a pumpkin. PERFECT for fall! If i EVER need floral arrangements i will certainly look no farther. This is one business that deserves every award they've won and then some. THANK YOU JOY!

Joy was recommended to me by a close friend who had just recently used her for her wedding. I was lucky enough to see first hand how Joy and her team work with their brides as well as the execution. After tagging along for my friends appointment, I knew right away that Joy was... Read More not like all the other florists out there and I had to book her! She really listens to your vision and adds her personal advice to help bring it all together. During our appointments she takes her time in really seeing what my style was and the arrangement of flowers I wanted (even though everyone I wanted was not in season) she was able to show me work a rounds that looked identical! I was beyond thrilled with my bouquet as well as all my bridesmaids and Mother's flower bracelet in place of a corsage . I must have shown her 20+ photos, and from them she was able to pull together a beautiful floral arrangement that was right on point with my wedding style. As for my venue, she went above and beyond! My mantel looked gorgeous, people are still talking about it as well as all the floral arrangements throughout the day/night. I am so happy that I got to work with someone who really is passionate about what she does and puts her heart into everything. If you are looking for a florist who will bring your vision to life within your budget, Elegant Designs by Joy is the place to book! I look forward to working with Joy again soon!!

Joy was a pleasure to work with. She knew I had a budget and had lots of great ideas. I know nothing about flowers, so her guidance was essential.

After visiting a few florists on LI I walked into Joy's store. What I loved most about her is she never asked what my budget was- she simply asked what I was looking for and how she could make my wedding great- after listening and offering up some great ideas she gave me a quote... Read More which was actually FAR less then any other florist. Other florists wanted to charge hundreds to decorate my cake Joy said " oh yea .. i will make sure it looks perfect by the time i leave- i will just bring some extra flowers" and it looked perfect!

Joy- is- AMAZING!

I could not think of enough words to describe how AMAZING our experience with Elegant Designs by Joy was. We came to Joy after we were put off by a few other local florists and could not be more thankful that we stumbled into her shop. We did not have an appointment but Joy... Read More still managed to take time out of her busy day to sit with us and help us visualize what we wanted our arrangements to look like. She was able to take our scattered vision and turn it into truly beautiful pieces of art. She offered suggestions that allowed us to still get what we wanted, all while remaining within our budget. I can go on and on about Joy's work because it exceeded all of our expectations and made our day even more special but what honestly made this planning process enjoyable and comforting was Joy's calming, caring, creative, friendly disposition. She made it so easy to express our ideas and to make us feel like we were the only customers she had, even though she was SWAMPED! She made us feel like we were family. Choosing Elegant Designs by Joy might have been the best vendor decision we made through our entire planning process. If you use Joy, you will not be disappointed!

Daughter's Wedding

Reviewed on 8/24/2015

We had visited other florists, but I believed it was important to feel a certain level of trust, and I just wasn't getting it from them. This was to be my daughter's wedding and if something didn't look the way I wanted, I could not go back and do it over again. Right from the... Read More start, I liked Joy and her shop. I felt right at home among the flowers and knick knacks. I knew what my daughter wanted and she let me take the lead. With a handful of pictures from pinterest and the rest dreamed up in my head, Joy brought our vision to reality. My daughter wanted everything to have an ombre effect, and her colors were purple and teal. I found the teal accessories and Joy brought every shade of purple she could get her hands on! The results were spectacular! We are still getting compliments from guests. They could not believe the attention to detail. Joy and her staff did an amazing job, from the arbor, to the entry, to the bouquets and finally the stunning reception tent. We were blown away. Bravo Joy and thank you for making my daughter's wedding everything I had hoped it would be.

Before I was even engaged I was stalking Elegant Designs by Joy on facebook! I swooned over the gorgeous flowers, centerpieces, and bouquets that are posted weekly. When it was my time to pick my vendors I knew I would be using Joy. From our first meeting she was an absolute... Read More doll to work with. She took into account everything we wanted and turned my vision into a reality. I loved having someone so experienced with weddings to bounce ideas off of with our tables, linens, etc. She helped me design everything so it looked perfect with the flower colors and centerpieces. We had purchased tall candelabras to use for our vintage theme and after getting them we were so nervous they would tip over in the middle of our reception! Joy played with them for weeks before our wedding and made them look absolutely gorgeous with flowers and greens and made sure they would be perfect (and wouldn't tip over!). So many people called me after our wedding to say how unique the centerpieces were and how gorgeous they looked. Our bouquets were gorgeous and looked perfect even at the end of the day. Joy also decorated our ceremony, it was so elegant and she stuck to our vintage theme perfectly. I would highly recommend Joy for anyone who is looking for a wedding florist, they were super affordable and we really felt she went above and beyond to make our special day perfect.

Working with Joy was a pleasure. When I first met Joy I was not sure of what exactly I wanted. All I knew was I wanted yellow flowers, I wanted a cascade bouquet for myself, I wanted all my bridesmaids to each have a different type of flower for their bouquet and I knew I wanted... Read More to use blue wine bottles for some of the center pieces (I wanted 3 types of center pieces, one high one low and the wine bottles). Joy was able to work with me to determine what type of flowers would go great for my wedding. She has so much knowledge of flowers and which ones are in season in the spring and summer. You can tell she loves what she does. We originally set the total price for 15 tables. However, I ended up having 17 tables. Joy worked with me so that the additional two tables did not cost me any extra money!!!!!! SHE WAS FANTASTIC. The day of the wedding she arrived to my hotel with the bouquets and then headed to our venue to set up our tables. The room looked gorgeous I loved all the flowers and so did my guest. At the end my guest were able to take the arrangements home with them. It was a great experience working with Joy and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs flowers.

Having a family farm, greenhouse & nursery on L.I., I guess my Love of flowers are just deeply rooted in me. Always having my hands in the growing end of the business, I loved to watch how flowers grew day by day then to be able to work with them, to create arrangements is such a reward. I enjoy to push things just a bit to see how to make things work in different ways. Most people just don't understand really how much work goes into it all. From sitting with a client, coming up with new ideas, researching & ordering, shipments, creating arrangements, delv & set-ups. It's a labor of Love!
