April Bourne Mansion WeddingReviewed on 4/24/2015 cassie k
Best florist on Long Island!! Outstanding, wonderful, perfection!! I found Joy after going to quite a few other florist. We had a budget in mind and she was happy to work with us to achieve our look. I immediately felt comfortable with her. We discussed ideas, colors, flowers, photos and inspiration for hours. I knew she completely understood what I was looking for and knew I could trust her eye. She was extremely helpful with recommendations and is truly there to help her brides. The night of our wedding I was completely floored!!! The centerpieces in the ballroom were absolutely beautiful and even more than I could have imagined. She went above and beyond our expectations. The bouquets and boutineers were perfect! I have already recommended Joy to many friends and plan to use her for years to come. Thank you again Joy!! You made our day even more perfect!
One of our best wedding decisions!Reviewed on 4/26/2015 Elizabeth T
The minute my husband and I met with Joy we knew that she was the florist for us. She whipped up a sample bouquet for me without a single flower suggestion and blew us away. She wasn't pushy and was willing to work with our budget which was super important to us. I knew with Joy putting together the flowers for my big day I didn't need to stress about a thing and I was right. If you want a stress free day and the confidence of someone who truly loves what she does and does it beautifully... choose Joy to make your bouquets, ceremony location and reception location, and even wedding cake look stunning!
Incredibly Talented!Reviewed on 10/08/2014 Angela P
My family has worked with Joy several times, so when it came time to plan our wedding, she was my first (and only!) floral option. From the moment you step into her shop, it is clear she is far beyond your "typical" florist. She is flexible with her designs and thrives when given the freedom to use her creative judgement on what will look best. The pieces she created for us exceeded our expectations. In addition to providing beautiful, unique arrangements, she also acts as an advocate for your wedding style and keeps your best interest in mind. Joy is an incredibly talented artist and should be your best (and only!) choice!
Everything you want in a floristReviewed on 3/16/2015 nicole d
I got married a little over a year and a half ago on 9/14/13, and am definitely late with writing a review, but better late than never. I was recommended to Joy by a family member on my husband's side, and as soon as I met her I knew she was who I wanted to work with. I wasn't a picky bride, had somewhat of a vision of what I wanted, and was prepared with all the milk glass and brass candles for Joy to play with. She understood what kind of bride I was and when I was naming off colors that I wanted to see, she was in her flower cooler pulling out flowers left and right and created the most beautiful bouquet right on the spot as a sample. She is easy to get along, will work with ANY budget, and she is on point, delivered my flowers to the hotel and reception on time. She helped set up the reception, and I had no worries during my day, as we met numerous times to share our visions, and what I expected. I highly, highly recommend her to any Bride, or person for that matter in need of flower arrangements, etc.

Let me start by just giving a big thank you to Joy for making my wedding day beautiful. Joy really out did herself with my amazing chuppah which brought my ceremony room to life. And my bouquets and centerpiece flowers were amazing. The flowers were so fresh and beautiful and arranged so nice. Joy really knows her flowers she was great to work with in making my winter wonderland theme wedding come to life. I would recommend her to any bride and will use her for any future events.
Elegant Designs by Joy is Flower Artistry!Reviewed on 12/01/2014 mary b
Joy is not your typical florist. She works with the bride and completely visualizes the bride's style working with her to bring it to life. She is creative and brings unique ideas and design to everything she does. Including unique flowers! The bouquets, table centerpieces and all of the floral decor was exactly what we envisioned. Joy is passionate and loves everyone of her brides. You will have a personal experience and be +100% happy working with her. Its a family business and she will treat you as such.

Joy at Elegant Designs did an amazing job with my wedding flowers. Her ability to capture exactly what we wanted and input her own creativity was incredible. I couldn't be happier with how everything came out!
Perfectection!Reviewed on 11/20/2014 Emily B
Joy did such a wonderful job making my entire wedding day beautiful, from the ceremony to the reception! I had so much fun working and brain storming with her about my wedding florals and she did such a great job of bringing my fall wedding vision to life. She truly is a creative and talented florist. I highly recommend!
Loved loved loved my flowers!!Reviewed on 9/26/2014 Tammi L
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Joy and everyone at Elegant Designs by Joy. From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew that we wanted to work with her. She was very sweet, honest and didn't pressure us at all, like some other vendors had. We were on a tight budget and Elegant Designs by Joy was very affordable. Joy was very creative and artistic in putting together absolutely gorgeous centerpieces and bouquets. My husband and I didn't know exactly what we wanted and aren't too familiar with types of flowers. Based on our tastes and the theme of our wedding Joy created the perfect floral arrangements for us. Both Joy and her husband with even stayed at the venue until we arrived to make sure that we were happy with everything. On a side note, my bouquet lasted an entire week after putting it in water! Like I said, I cannot say enough great things about Joy and her staff. I have been recommending her to everyone not only for weddings, but for anytime someone might need flowers. Planning a wedding can be a stressful time, but my mind was definitely at ease concerning our flowers because we chose Joy!
Joy Made our Wedding BEAUTIFUL!Reviewed on 9/20/2014 Arielle G
Joy was so amazing to work with from the first time I stepped foot in her store to our wedding day. She is so enthusiastic about her work and you can tell she truly loves what she does. I showed her pictures and shared my ideas with her and she helped to make our wedding day even better than I imagined. She was so willing to work within out budget, I was shocked at how beautiful the centerpieces were, talk about bang for your buck. Our day would not have been complete without her, our guests were all begging to take home a centerpiece because they were so gorgeous. I even gave my bouquet away to a guest who was disappointed they didn't get a centerpiece to take home! Rave reviews. Thanks for everything joy!
OutstandingReviewed on 9/12/2014 Melissa H
Elegant Designs did my wedding flowers and I can't tell you how perfect and breathtaking they were! From our first meeting, Elegant Designs knew 100% of what I was asking for and worked with me to get everything I wanted at a very reasonable price! The flowers for the wedding were one of my favorite pieces of it because they were so perfect and beautiful. We got married in August so it was very hot and somewhat muggy and the flowers held up beautifully. Joy has been a pleasure to work with and I recommend her to anyone and everyone getting married! I can't say enough of how perfect the flowers were and how wonderful everyone was to work with. I never once felt pressured into something I didn't want and I always felt that they were trying to give me everything I was looking for within my budget. I really cannot say enough how happy I am!!!
Brilliant!!!Reviewed on 9/08/2014 danielle g
Walking into this quaint little shop in Islip was the fulfillment of our dream come true. My vision for floral arrangements was a little out of the box (enchanted forest), but Joy went above and beyond our expectations. She is a talented and artistic florist, and her designs are craftfully and artistically brought together. She transformed our venue into a delightful forest of ferns and floral greenery. I received countless compliments on the arrangements, and I absolutely started crying when I saw my bouquets and those of my bridesmaids. Joy was professional and communicative, and brought our vision to life with her stunning designs. We couldn't have asked for a better price, as her's was well below competitive standards, but the quality we received was higher than most. Most importantly was that Joy took the vision we explained to her in dialogue, and transformed it into a reality. Her insight was incredible, and gave us everything we asked for and more. I feel silly to write this review because I feel like there are not words to adequately convey our pleasure in choosing this shop. I highly and happily recommend this shop to anyone and everyone!!
Simply PerfectReviewed on 8/17/2014 Susan C
Joy was a delight to work with and her ability to capture what my daughter asked for was spot on. She worked with her on style as well as budget. Joy beautifully incorporated keepsakes into my daughter's bouquet making it even more special. I would highly recommend her.
Don't bother with other florists if you want something amazing!!Reviewed on 7/29/2014
My brother and his now wife were getting married. My parents decided to have an intimate ceremony to celebrate this wonderful event. I wanted to do something special for my to be sister-in-law, so I chose to get her a bridal bouquet, flowers for her hair, and some flowers for the close relatives who would be a part of the ceremony. I contacted Joy because she had done my wedding flowers a few years earlier and did an absolutely amazing job. I mentioned to her that my brother's wife is from Costa Rica and it would be nice to have some tropical flowers mixed in to her bouquet. I left the rest of what needed to be done in Joy's supremely able hands. On the day of the wedding, Joy arrived with a stunning bouquet of flowers that literally brought my sister-in-law to tears with happiness. She was elated to receive the beautiful flowers. After she proudly carried the flowers in her wedding, she kept them in a vase in their apartment. She told me that they lasted and stayed as gorgeous as they had been on the wedding day for well over a week. I could not more strongly recommend Joy's work. She is creative, accommodating, and does absolutely brilliant work that will make you elated that you passed on all of those terrible flower mills that pump out the same boring bouquets and centerpieces for every event!
Details make the day!Reviewed on 7/09/2014
Our wedding day was beautiful, thanks to Joy. She made up gorgeous bouquets for the bridal party, boutonnières to match, and centerpieces that tied the look together! Since we had an outdoor ceremony, Joy decorated the gazebo with additional ribbon and sunflowers, making the ceremony photos amazing!
Amazing flowers and service!Reviewed on 6/29/2014 Karen M
I was absolutely thrilled with the wonderful service I received from Joy at Elegant Designs. I went in to her shop with little to go on ("purple", "wildflowers", "natural") and she created beautiful masterpieces! The bouquets for myself and the bridesmaids were perfect and she also helped transform our wedding location with her wonderful arrangements. She knew we were on a budget, and put in a lot of extra time (and flowers) anyway. She was so sweet to work with and she was able to make my vision (which was not very well articulated!) into a perfect reality. I would highly recommend her for a wedding or any other event!
More Than Just Elegant!Reviewed on 5/12/2014 Stephanie C
Joy was such a pleasure to work with from our very first meeting! She listened to the ideas I had & ran with them to turn them in to a reality. She helped me incorporate family heirlooms into my bouquet making it truly one of a kind & special. Her expertise shined through as she made suggestions to accommodate both my vision & my budget. The end result were flowers that were more than just elegant - they were breathtaking! From the bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and table arrangements we got nothing but compliments on how beautiful the flowers were! Two weeks later & the hydrangeas from the center pieces are still fresh!! Her attention to detail - flowers on the cake & petal details throughout our reception - just proved how much she cares about her customers. I would recommend her again & again for not only weddings but any type of event (she did the floral centerpieces for my bridal shower too!) Thank you so much Joy!! -Stephanie & Alex
Vineyard/rustic/vintage/romantic weddingReviewed on 5/09/2014 Lisa D
Joy was a pleasure to work with! My husband and I trusted her vision and quality of her work from our very first meeting. She encouraged us to communicate what were looking for, instead of exactly pinpointing every single detail. . We greatly appreciated that. Weddings can be stressful enough, and it was refreshing to work with a vendor that took our ideas and just "ran with them." She is dedicated to her work and captured the spirit of our vineyard wedding perfectly. We highly recommend her for your wedding!
Wedding of our dreams!!Reviewed on 5/01/2014 kristin h

FabulousReviewed on 3/26/2014
Joy was such a sweetheart through the entire process! She was always willing to lend a helping hand and made everything exactly how I wanted it. The flowers smelled beautiful! Even the men couldn't get over how pretty they were! I would defiantly recommend Joy to anyone who needs flowers for any occasion!

Amazing !Reviewed on 1/06/2014 Nina P
The first time we met with Joy, I brought my fiancé, mom and future mother in law. As I was describing my wedding "vision", which was unusual and seemingly bizarre to my family, Joy was on the same page with me throughout the entire conversation. My MiL was not the nicest, making off-the-cuff Comments and it became very frustrating for all- except Joy. She stayed cool and kind and tolerated the unkind comments (my MIL hated my choice in flowers and colors) and continued to show us how to make my vision come alive. Although I knew I wanted to work with Joy from the first moment I met her, my feelings strengthen after I witnessed how she dealt with tense circumstances. She drowned out the negativity and focused on me and my ideas and comments. She carried the remaining trial calmly and made sure all my questions were answered. Joy cares about her customers, she makes them feel comfortable no matter the Issue. This particular experience foreshadowed my entire journey with Joy- from start to finish, it is about the bride. Joy will go to great lengths to make you happy, and to make even the craziest of ideas come alive and still meet your budget She will search high and low for the best quality flowers and will help you with anything you need to make your day seamless and beautiful. My bridesmaid bouquets and centerpieces are still alive- and I was married over a week ago- the flowers are as beautiful as the wedding day. All in all, Joy is a gem. She puts much love, time and patience into each arrangement and will never settle for anything but the best. The flowers are long lasting and even the simplest of arrangements will wow your guests! Perhaps Joy's flowers represent her, too. Simply beautiful; vibrant; charming.
Perfect!Reviewed on 12/18/2013 Donna L
Joy was such a pleasure to work with and we were extremely happy with the flowers. She listened to what we wanted and made it a reality. I would highly recommend Joy if you are looking for fresh, beautiful flowers at the right price. To top it all off, she was so kind, caring and warm which made the experience even better.
