The short version is Cherry Brandy was a pleasure to work with, helped us stay on budget, and on the day of the wedding, the flowers were truly amazing and exceeded our expectations.

The long version: Cherry Brandy exceeded our expectations in every way. JoAnn was extremely responsive, kind, and helpful throughout the process. A lot of other florists didn't get back to me with quotes or were generally difficult to communicate with, but we booked Cherry Brandy on the basis of their superior customer service. JoAnn encouraged me to send over ideas and never made me feel like I was asking too much or had too many questions, etc. At times, I wasn't sure what I wanted or had way too many ideas, but JoAnn worked with us to hone into what our vision was and she really, really got it perfectly!

On the day of the wedding, the flowers were BEAUTIFUL!! When I saw my bouquet, I nearly cried and I'm not really the mushy type. The flowers and decor were truly a highlight of the day. We received so many compliments on them. The flowers were were super fresh and lasted well over a week after the wedding. Cherry Brandy was also accommodating in terms of budget and I never felt pushed to spend more, etc.

All around - fantastic, 5 stars. I highly recommend Cherry Brandy Designs!

Cherry Brandy Designs provided the bride's bouquet and the bouquet for all 8 of the bridesmaids. I had no idea what flowers I wanted (flowers just aren't my thing). All I told them was that I wanted to keep them in the coral/peach color family. I emailed them a few pictures of bouquets I had like and trusted that they would provide some nice bouquets. Well, THEY DID! The bouquets were more beautiful that I could imagine. Plus, they were able to attached 2 of my Grandmothers' handkerchiefs and some pins and charms from my family to my bridal bouquet. Everything came out amazing. I would highly recommend them!!

My fiance and I met with JoAnn and didn't have an exact floral design in mind. We hosted our wedding at our Hudson Valley farmhouse, but gave her pretty vague direction... "overgrown", no specific color palette, "we like herbs" (LOL!)... also, our budget was nothing to get excited about.

SHE HIT IT OUT OF THE BALLPARK.

Our tables were country/rustic/garden chic perfection. Runners of woven greenery. Bud vases with wildflowers, herbs and eucalyptus. The bridal/maids bouquets also included roses and hydrangea, and were absolutely breathtaking. I wish I could take more credit for the vision!

She even made a couple little custom creations, like clips for our puppy's collars and a comb with flowers for my hair.

JoAnn's work alone really polished the look of our whole wedding. We went from "backyard gathering" to "country wedding" in one consultation.

FIVE STARS IS NOT ENOUGH!!! Thank you!!!!!

JoAnn and Heidi are amazing! They are knowledgeable, helpful and always professional. Their bouquets, boutineers, and corsages were gorgeous and made my wedding truly special. JoAnn and Heidi went above and beyond to make sure the centerpieces were perfectly set up and arranged. I would only do business with them again! The flowers were excellent quality, too.

Overall, A++ service!!

Working with JoAnn and Heidi was phenomenal, they were one of my favorite vendors! From the first time we met up I knew that they would be the florists for me. They listened to everything I wanted and took good notes. We looked at pinterest together and they totally understood what I was looking for. I had a rustic/tree themed wedding and they pulled it off exactly like what I wanted. The bouquets were GORGEOUS! I was so happy and everyone loved the flowers. For centerpieces, I wanted every one different and used a lot of my own antique collection for containers. I gave them an assortment of lanterns, watering cans, boxes, etc - all things that needed special foam and such to put flowers in. They all came out amazing! The price was very reasonable also. They will work within any budget you tell them. We met again when it came closer to the wedding for me to see samples and discuss last minute details. Heidi and JoAnn are so friendly and easy to talk to, I felt like we were old friends talking about the upcoming wedding! You will not be disappointed if you go with Cherry Brandy Designs!!!

JoAnn and Heidi were the best possible floral team I could have ever worked with! As many brides know or will soon find out, having real flowers on your wedding day can get expensive fast. My husband and I wanted the wedding to look beautiful and elegant, however at a price that we felt was reasonable. As a type A bride, planning an out of state Latino wedding, my budget was extremely important but I didn't want to have to compromise the desired look we were going for. I presented them my budget and my numerous over-the-top ideas that I wanted for the wedding. They very kindly gave me estimates for my elaborate ideas and then worked with me diligently over the course of a month to make adjustments to the floral designs (types of flowers used, color combinations, types of arrangements and glassware, re-purposing arrangements throughout the day, etc.) until we were able to make all of our needs fit our price point. They genuinely made me feel comfortable with the final decisions we made. The day of the wedding everything was executed beautifully and the guests were all very impressed with how the flowers brought together all of the decor elements. At the end of the night, JoAnn and Heidi helped us pack up all of the flowers as we wanted to donate them to a senior care facility to enjoy. It was an absolute pleasure working with this dedicated team!

JoAnn and Heidi are a FANTASTIC team! From our first phone call, JoAnn instantly made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions with knowledge and confidence. She continually worked with us throughout the planning to maintain our budget, even after Pinterest gave us a few more ideas we hadn’t originally planned on! She even offered to meet us halfway between Port Ewen and Queens for our first meeting. I really appreciated that.

Heidi is so sweet and friendly, and SO amazingly talented. She paid such close attention to all of our ideas and explained everything she envisioned so thoroughly, showing us photos of all the flowers and even drawing little sketches of how it would all be laid out. We really felt like Heidi understood the non-traditional look we were going for with our centerpieces, and she took it above and beyond anything we could’ve hoped for. When I finally got to see my bouquet on the day of the wedding, I was speechless. It was absolute PERFECTION. She truly nailed every little detail: the ceremony trellis and aisle, the escort card table, centerpieces, bouquets, corsages, and the cake! Everything came together beautifully to create exactly the look and feel that we imagined for our special day.

We honestly cannot thank JoAnn and Heidi enough! AMAZING!

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.
