Joy did an amazing job working with my vision and color scheme on our wedding day 9/6/15.I met 2 times with Joy and at each meeting she seemed organized, professional and you could tell she has been in the business for awhile. She asks you to create a pinterest board so she can... Read More work with your vision and off of other pieces she has made in the past, which is very helpful! Her prices are very affordable and her chuppah was beautiful! The birch wood chuppah is the REAL reason we went with Joy, it was one of the nicest ones we had found in the area. She was able to secure the chuppah to the ground on a VERY windy day at Warwick Country Club with planters filled with blue and green hydrangeas. It was beautiful and we received many compliments on the chuppah and centerpieces. My own negatives were the size of my bouquet and the bridesmaids. From what we had planned I thought they would be bigger, but they still showed up well in the photographs. Due to the weather and during delivery, a tall vase with flowers also broke which was supposed to be used in the ballroom, but she was able to salvage the flowers and use them on the gift table. Also the hydrangeas on the cake went limp and dry halfway through the night and she only placed them on top of the cake, when I had planned to have them continue on each layer downward. These were minor issues in the whole scheme of the day, but I wish she would have acknowledged them and maybe credited us something in return. All in all, Joy is very good at what she does and I would use her again, as her work is beautiful and very affordable!
