Quality of service – 5 stars – Yelena was great. Even on such short notice, she was able to put together the flowers I chose and give me ideas on what would look good in a bouquet. She also provided her professional opinion for boutonnieres.
Responsiveness – 5 stars – Yelena left a voice mail that she was going on vacation but continued to go back and forth with me on email to be sure I had answers to all of my questions.
Professionalism – 5 stars –
Value – 5 stars – the value of the florist also includes the wedding planner. The wedding planner scheduled the arrangements with the florist and she provided exactly what I asked for.

Flowers were beautiful. I couldn't use the flowers I originally wanted but everything still looked great. I specifically asked for a special flower to be in my bouquet in honor of a passed loved one. This was left out of my bouquet and was very disappointing. My guests were very complimentary of the flowers.

Elegant Designs did an absolutely amazing job at our recent wedding. Everything was beautiful!! Yelena was also wonderful to work with. She is a very nice, helpful, kind, and talented person. She was very patient and gave me many suggestions about floral decor throughout a period of months while trying to finalize the contract and make it perfect! I feel as though the flowers were the most detailed and difficult to decide on/finalize throughout the whole wedding planning. There are many small details that Yelena took the time to explain to me, send me images of, and she even put examples together to give me a visual of the color of sea shells that I wanted added to my bouquet. She knew exactly what kind of flowers matched my wedding colors and exactly the kind of flowers/decor I was looking for. We received an immense amount of complements about the floral decor throughout the wedding and I'm looking forward to seeing them in our photos, as well. Elegant Designs really stood out in my mind and made our wedding beautiful and unique. I highly recommend Elegant Designs.

I loved my flowers on my wedding day! Yelena's work is unique and she was very knowledgeable. I was a destination bride and we only had a couple of phone conversations and she provided some great suggestions based on my budget, taste and what I was looking for. My budget was small but Yelena was so accommodating and still made sure that I had beautiful flowers. She was very prompt at responding to my emails and numerous changes leading up the wedding. Her prices were so fair for the quality and the work that she does and the flowers you can get. The only thing I was disappointed in was that I did not get to meet her on my wedding day to personally thank her but I did get to meet her lovely husband! Book Elegant Designs for your wedding flowers!! Thank you Yelena!

Yelena at Elegant Design Florist is exceptional. During our initial meeting she spent ample time discussing design ideas with me. She intuitively understood what style I was looking for in our wedding. During the months leading up to the wedding she responded promptly to my emails and made all of the changes to my order that I requested. The flowers on the wedding day were beautiful and exactly what I had envisioned. The bouquets for the bridesmaids and myself were especially wonderful. I would wholeheartedly recommend Yelena for any event. Her pricing is fair and she is a fabulous florist.

Simply amazing. I have no words to describe the awesome, amazing, and incredible talent that Elegant Designs offers to this area. I came in as a bride with a lot of ideas and a few pinterest pins of ideas I liked. Yelena immediately started showing us photos of flowers that matched my ideas. As an Ohio State Alumni, I wanted buckeyes to be a big part of the wedding. Yelena, not knowing what a Buckeye was, went to work doing her research and within 10 minutes gave us the most amazing ideas of how to integrate the funny nut into our flowers. My bridal bouquet was simply the most amazing thing I have ever seen. My wedding planners, venue, photographer, and DJ all commented that they had never seen such a beautiful bouquet. She matched my description and more. Our centerpieces were absolutely AMAZING. It was important to me that our centerpieces be tall and slim so that people wouldn't be blocked of a view when talking to others at the table. She delivered. And more. I just can't say enough good things about Elegant Designs. They were the first and only florist we met with. That's how good they are. You ROCK, Elegant Designs!

Yelena is an absolutely amazing florist. She made my wedding day turn into a true fairy tale. My flowers were absolutely stunning and I had many guests come up to tell me they had never seen a more beautiful bouquet. Yelena made the planning process super easy and personable. She met with me in person and communicated through email in order to make sure my vision for the day was brought to life. I was speechless when I saw my beautiful church and table arrangements. I am so happy I chose elegant designs for my big day!!!! I highly recommend Yelena to be your florist on your big day!

Yelena is amazing. The floral arrangements she made for our wedding were absolutely gorgeous, and she is so wonderful to work with. Our consultation was great - she has great ideas and was able to understand and work with what I was trying to describe, even though I have almost no knowledge of plant and flower names! On the wedding day, she was there for hours setting everything up just right. I would absolutely recommend Yelena for any event, she is a wonderfully talented woman.

My experience working with Elegant Designs Floral exceeded my expectations. Yelena is such a warm, caring and easy person to work with. In all honesty I have never been much of a flower lover but Yelena has changed me since the wedding, I met with her with photos from the internet of different flowers and ideas I had for my wedding centerpieces, bouquets and ceremony arrangements and she truly make my vision come to life! The floral arrangements, bouquets and centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous, you can tell that she has a passion for what she does and due to this she brings such an amazing artistic eye to floral arrangement. Not only was I able to rent all the centerpiece vases, candle holders and candles from her, she came to my venue to set everything up and then once the reception was over packed all the florals in water in boxes for my family to easily take home and not worry about! I did not have to worry once about the flowers knowing that they were in Yelena’s hands. If you are looking for flowers for any occasion I would definitely recommend stopping by Elegant Designs Floral, you will not be sorry you did!

Elegant Designs is an Amazing Florist. We both do not know much about flowers, but Yelena is amazing with her creations and will make your wedding beautiful. Our wedding coordinator recommended her and we could not be happier that we decided to work with her. She met with us early on in the planning stage and we showed her pictures of what we wanted and she recreated and made them even more beautiful on the special day. She hand delivered and set everything up perfectly at the Powel Crosley. The flowers were all so beautiful and so fresh!! My mom displayed them around our house after the wedding and they were still beautiful when we came home after our honeymoon!! We highly recommend Yelena with Elegant Designs, you will be so happy that you chose them!!! Thank you Yelena!!!

You've found your florist. Hesitate no more.

I had a very limited budget and was worried that it would take a lot DIY to make my wedding look the way I had envisioned. I was encouraged by my baker to just give Yelena a try and I am so glad I did. She was so sweet, and so amazing. The gold sprayed manzanita branches with hanging tea lights she made for our winter reception dinner was almost magical, especially with the lights dimmed.

Bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres were waiting for us in the designated separate rooms at the church. We loved everything, Yelena. Thank you!

I am over the moon to endorse Yelena! My Mom and I loved her from the moment we met. We felt at ease and relaxed with her. She also made my dreams come true. Our bouquets were absolutely incredible and filled with the flowers we discussed: succulents, roses, ranunculus, oh my! The centerpieces were beautiful, too. Each table was in perfect harmony without looking matchy-matchy. And, my cake! I cannot begin to explain how gorgeous the cascading vine and floral accented it. Finally, our chuppa. It was romantic, organic and elegant.

Look no further than Yelena for your floral services. She's the key to the wedding of your dreams!

Yelena was a pleasure to work with from our first telephone conversation to our last! I planned a beach wedding at Lido Key, Sarasota, FL long distance from New York and Yelena was very helpful with suggestions relative to what I envisioned for my beach wedding set up. I wanted an arbor arch set up on the sand with a tropical floral arrangement across the top. It was perfect - exactly what I wanted! I wished I could have taken it home on the plane with me, but I gave it to the condominium we stayed at, so that they could put it in their lobby for everyone to enjoy! Yelena designed my bouquet of hot pink Calla lillies which was gorgeous. Everyone commented on how lovely it was! Elegant Designs set up everything beautifully and everything was taken down after we left for dinner after the ceremony. They did a beautiful job, and I would highly recommend Elegant designs for all of your flowers as well as your set up needs if you are having a ceremony outdoors.

My flowers were absolutely beautiful! We could not have chosen a better florist for our special day. The morning of our wedding I almost had a panic attack as I just remembered that we had added an extra groomsmen a couple months prior to the wedding, but had never order his boutonniere. Yelena calmed my nerves and assured me it would not be a big deal to add another one that day. I was so relieved! They also delivered my flowers ahead of schedule, which is always nice. Thanks for everything Yelena!! :)

Yelena at Elegant Design Floral Art Studio was a pleasure to work with. She was willing to conduct business with me over email, which is a necessity when you are planning a wedding and working 50-60 hours a week. Her floral designs are beautiful. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted my arrangements to look like, and she was able to create them with her own flair. I love how her arrangements are both classic and simple, but also often interesting and different. She also suggested the photographer that we wound up using, as well, so overall, I recommend and approve of her aesthetic judgement. I even texted her at around 930pm the night before the wedding to ask if she could bring some petals for the floral girl in the am, which she did without fuss. Seems sweet and genuine, on top of being talented!

Yelena and her team at Elegant Designs were incredible. Our officiant recommended Elegant Designs and we are so glad we hired Yelena to be our florist for our wedding. We planned our wedding long distance and I thought it would be challenging to plan the flowers and decor for our ceremony and reception. However, Yelena and I kept in contact throughout the planning months and she was a great asset to have. I gave her my vision and ideas and she was right on track with what I wanted. She was very accommodating to all our changes and was happy to give me advice on different aspects of the ceremony and reception decor. The results were incredible. The flowers were beautiful and the centerpieces for our wedding were amazing and unique.
Thank you Yelena for all your help and beautiful work. We appreciate all your work, inspirational ideas and guidance as we planned our perfect wedding.

Everything with Elegant Designs and Yelena went so smooth and the flowers turned out gorgeous! Yelena did our ceremony flowers, bouquets, boutonnieres, and of course, our reception centerpieces.

My husband and I had narrowed down our florists to Elegant Designs based only on reviews since we're from out of town. Once we met her, we had no reason to look elsewhere. From the start, Yelena was accommodating (we were on a budget) and patient with my indecisiveness. She was prompt with her emails and offered great suggestions. On the day, I knew I didn't need to worry about the flowers - Yelena was early and even gave us free petals for the reception tables.

Yelena and Elegant Designs were wonderful to work with - you won't go wrong in selecting them!

Yelena at Elegant Designs is truly amazing. She is an artist; her floral work is breathtaking! Beyond that, she is a kind, creative, and professional vendor who feels more like a friend. She was easy to work with and was very timely with her correspondence. When our guest count changed, causing the workload to change, she adapted our contract with ease. Most importantly, she and her team worked TIRELESSLY to place our flowers how I requested them (outside) in an unexpected windstorm. Most people would have said, "I'm sorry, it's too windy and we just can't do it." Instead, they were out there, freezing, balancing on a ladder, making it happen for me. I am so grateful! I can say with complete certainty that choosing Yelena as your florist will be the best decision you can make!

Yelena was amazing to work with and such a sweet person in addition! She listened to all of our random ideas and pictures that we provided her with and transformed that into something incredibly beautiful. She went above and beyond with our not so traditional ceremony backdrop. She was also so creative with the floral arrangements for the tables as well as the bouquets. My mother and I greatly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone.

Yelena was a dream to work with. All I did was bring a few photos of arrangements that I liked to our first meeting and she took those inspiration photos and ran with it. The flowers the she put together for our wedding were stunning. Just what I wanted. Everything that she used was in season and she worked easily within our budget. There were a few additions at the last minute and she accommodated all of those changes easily. I cannot say enough good things about Elegant Designs. Save yourself time shopping around and go with this florist. You will be happy you did.

I cannot say enough good things about Yelena and Elegant Design Florists. She took my vision and made it into a dream come true. She brought the flowers I needed the day of the wedding for pictures to my hotel and brought the rest to the venue. Since I was not at the venue, I did not see the ceremony set up until I arrived right before the wedding and I was blown away. It was one of the most beautiful ceremony set ups I had ever seen!! She truly went above and beyond to make it perfect and did I mention my bouquet. Bright fresh red roses that were just the perfect amount bloomed to make the most beautiful bouquet. My bridesmaids bouquets were just as perfect and the centerpieces for the reception tables were beautiful. Like I said, I cannot say enough good things. Amazing, beautiful and affordable. Yelena has it all for your wedding.

If you are looking for a florist, end your search here....Elegant Designs is who you should hire!!! Yelena is the most wonderful person to work with and her talent for floral arranging is beyond words. She was so amazing and had so many creative ideas which really helped us decide how we wanted our wedding to look. It was also nice to know that when we hired Elelgant Designs for our wedding, we knew it would be Yelena who was arranging the flowers (as opposed to other local "commercial" non personal stores). The day of our wedding Yelena showed up w/ all of the flowers and they looked ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I have found my florist for life :) Thanks Yelena!!! - Kim & Jim

Yelena at Elegant designs iis AMAZING! We couldn't have been happier that we chose her as our florist for our October 2012 Wedding. She was able to visualize and capture my ideas and add a uniqueness with her creative touch. She was fun and vibrant to work with, as well as flexible. Yelena's love of her work really shows in each of her designs.

I changed my mind on the number of arrangements quite a few times in the process, yet she was willing to accomedate my all of my back and forth requests. While her pictures online are beautiful, they really don't do her work justice. Our flowers were fresh, beautifully arranged and the colors were absolutely perfect. Her services are very reasonably priced and she does beautiful work. she made me feel right at ease and confident that she would make it beautiful. She made everything look so wonderful and she went above and beyond what I even expected!

I loved all of my wedding flowers. She truly made our day spectacular. People are STILL talking about the flowers at our wedding ceremony and reception. Thank you Yelena...we love you.

Yelena was very easy to work with and made good suggestions. My bridal bouqet was stunning, and groom's boutonniere was beautiful. I chose to have the bamboo arch decorated with white and blue fabric and two small removable floral bouquets. At the last minute my ceremony had to be moved indoors and the arch was nicely set up inside with box stands filled in with large seashells. Overall it looked pretty, but the decorating of the bamboo was not quite what I had pictured. It did somewhat resemble curtains, and it probably would have looked nicer with another larger floral arrangement at the top in the middle to cover where the blue fabric was gathered. I was supposed to have aisles made in the sand with some palm fronds, but had leftover rose petals sprinkled around my dinner tables and cake table instead. That was just what my cake table needed! Yelena had the best prices, and she offers a military discount!

Yelena created our bouquets and boutonnieres. The Groom and Groomsmen had succulent boutonnieres, which came out beautiful and were very reasonably priced. My bouquet was all green with succulents, chrysanthemums and orchids. It came out incredible! Planning my wedding, I micro-managed every detail and knew what to expect from all my vendors. But, the flowers were a wonderful surprise that were well worth the expense!

Yelena also provided us with flowers for our centerpieces, which were very reasonable. She was able to do very expensive, high end arrangements, but gave lots of suggestions for less expensive options. Very pleasant to work with!

You are exceptional in that you put your heart into your work, and it was certainly evident in working with my daughter as she changed and changed and changed ideas. You are a true master in your field. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Yelena with Elegant Design Flowers was amazing! She had the best price by far and such great reviews that I decided to go with her and I'm so glad I did. I changed my mind many times about many things, and she gladly reworked the contract each time. She took the time to really understand what I wanted and to figure out how to make it a reality. The flowers were gorgeous and so much more beautiful than I had imagined. I had a destination wedding with a honeymoon right after, so preserving my flowers wasn't an option. I carted my bouquet with me as long as I could before leaving for the honeymoon, and I was honestly really sad to part with it.

Yelena with Elegant Design Flowers was amazing! She had the best price by far and such great reviews that I decided to go with her and I'm so glad I did. I changed my mind many times about many things, and she gladly reworked the contract each time. She took the time to really understand what I wanted and to figure out how to make it a reality. The flowers were gorgeous and so much more beautiful than I had imagined. I had a destination wedding with a honeymoon right after, so preserving my flowers wasn't an option. I carted my bouquet with me as long as I could before leaving for the honeymoon, and I was honestly really sad to part with it.

I could not have been more happy with Elegant Designs Floral Art Studio. I met with Yelena (owner) having no idea what I wanted and a tight budget. She spent two hours with me helping me create my vision and worked within my budget to create a truly magical outdoor wedding. She was able to coordinate my beautiful bright blue orchids (the one flower I had my heart set on) with other complimentary flowers that made the whole wedding pop. She had the wonderful idea to use some greenary inbetween the fowers of the wedding arch, which gave the whole venue a beautiful garden look while staying within budget. She was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls and her flowers were absolutely beautiful. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, I am so glad I found her!!

Yelena was fantastic to work with! My husband and I were not well versed with all the different flowers but had a vision and she talked us through all the options, pricing, and what it would take to transform our big day. We flew in from out of town and she was more than accommodating to meet with us having limited time and helping us plan our destination wedding. She had beautiful arrangements and her attention to detail was exquisite! Everything from meeting to planning and delivery of the flowers was perfect! Thank you Yelena for making gorgeous arrangements that fit every bride's vision! :)

We initially contacted Elegant Designs because the owner was a friend of my parents. However, after talking with them, we were happy with the suggestions that were offered and the value. I had some ideas on what I wanted, but Yelena's expertise led to some beautiful arrangements that were better than what I had planned. And, both of the mothers loved the wrist corsage, which is both pretty and practical. Thanks for helping to make my beach wedding so beautiful, Yelena! I've received many compliments on the flowers when people view the pictures.

Yelena was awesome to work with. She was very quick when it came to communication, and understood what I was looking for. She knew we had a budget we were trying to stay within, and she did everything she could to try to make it work with what we wanted. She made my bouquet, my MOH bouquet, bouts for Groom, Best Man & both Dads, flower centerpieces for 4 tables, and the flowers on our bamboo arch. They were all absolutely beautiful and exactly what I pictured and wanted. This was a destination wedding for us, so I didn't even get to meet in person with Yelena during planning. She made it so easy for us. Thank you Yelena!

Yelena from Elegant Designs was fabulous. She brought my vision to life. I had an outdoor dinner reception which she filled with bright flower arrangements and then we moved indoors for a club feel where she used all white flowers. I was very happy with everything. She was easy to work with. She used my ideas and gave me some of her own too, when I wasn’t sure what to do. When we made changes at the venue she quickly accommodated. She was always there when I needed something. Elegant Designs was also very reasonably priced.

She did our chairs rentals and she isn't even a rental company! She went above and beyond for our wedding and gave us an affordable option that was more beautiful than any overpriced florist!! Her arrangements were so beautiful. I loved working with Yelena and I would not recommend anyone but her. Thank you!!

Yelena listened, heard, and made our vision come true! She knew we wanted simple and romantic and that's is what she did! She was so accommodating, it was incredible! We describe the way we wanted the chuppah to look, and she more than met our expectations! When the Ritz Salon asked for small orchids for the bride's hair, Yelena made sure she brought them over when she delivered all the gorgeous bouquets to the salon for us to have for photos. I absolutely loved working with her and highly recommend Elegant Designs. She truly deserved the ratings that she got and I would be happy to speak to anyone on her behalf if a reference is needed.

She was the only one that really understood what I was looking for for my wedding. When I saw the reception room it was even better than I imagined my head. She is truly amazing! Not to mention she is extreamly professional and answered my emails in record time and answered every question I had with care and understanding. She did a special wrapping of my bouquet with my mom's veil from when she got married and it was done so beautifully. She is truly incredible and out of all the vendors from my wedding, I was most pleased with her!

Yelena is very talented at her flower design. I came in looking for something different and elegant and she wowed me with just that! I look at my flowers for my wedding and then look at what other people's flowers had for their wedding and I could not be happier with mine! She did just an amazing job and the arrangements were unlike any of the flowers I have seen. She has such unique and beautiful ideas and designs. Our centerpieces were by far the perfect setting for our beach wedding! It has just simplistic elegance and I was stunned by how amazing the tables looked! I had a beach wedding and did not want to be completely traditional so I told Yelena and we decided to use flower combs for the mothers instead of corsages.. they were gorgeous! Anyone I told about Elegant Designs being my florist told me I would be very happy and they were right!

I would absolutely recommend Elegant Designs. I was planning my wedding from out of state. All I knew was generally what colors the linens would be and Yelena helped guide me with flowers and decorations from there. When she was testing out the design on the tables she came up with something better looking than we had originally agreed upon and she called me to ask if it was okay to make the change, which shows great customer service. Yelena was great to work with and she made my wedding look beautiful.

We loved their work and they really took the time to find the look we wanted at an affordable price! I loved my bouquet (it was everything I wanted) and especially loved the unique corsages she made for the women in our family! They are more like bracelets. No uncomfortable elastic bands of pin pricks! I would definitely recommend using them!

Yelena did beautiful work on my flowers. She perfectly envisioned what I wanted in my flowers and more than delivered. The orchid bouquets she did for myself and my maid of honor were gorgeous. The groomsmen flowers were equally lovely. She also did the centerpieces, which were elegant and understated, just like what I wanted. Also, her prices were affordable. When I said I wanted orchids, most people told me to be prepared to pay big bucks, but Elegant Designs prices were reasonable. She even threw in a few extra orchid blossoms for my hair. And on top of all that, she delivered the personal flowers to my hotel so I could have them for photos. I couldn't recommend her more!

Yelena was by far the nicest and most professional florist that I've ever worked with. Her creativity and willingness to please her clients puts her above many of her competitors. She put together the most beautiful bouquets for my wedding party and myself, and it didn't break my budget. Her artistic streak and easy going personality makes her incredibly easy and fun to work with.

Elegant Designs put together the most beautiful bamboo arch for our quaint beach wedding that exuded simplicity and class. My bouquet full of lilies, orchids, roses, and a few others stayed vibrant and beautiful for several days.

I could not have asked for a more beautiful set-up or a more beautiful set of bouquets. Yelena really went above and beyond to what I had expected, and I will definitely be working with her for any future floral needs!!

Wow! Yeleana went above & beyond my wildest imagination. When searching for a florist, I had this crazy idea in my head about what I wanted. Yelena was able to pluck it right out of my brain and make it a reality. She was so great working with from afar. I sent her a picture of different bouquets that I liked. She emailed me back with her ideas. Then we put them together, she made a mock bouquet and sent me pictures of that too. We made a couple more changes and she came up with such a beautiful finished product. Besides our bouquets, she created our beautiful arch & added some last minute centerpiece flowers (that I didn't ask her to do until the week before). She was so efficient, I never even got to meet her. She came in and set up so quickly, I never got the chance to thank her in person.
