Joanne was amazing to work with. We sat down and discussed all the details around my vision and she came back with some amazing ideas and recommendations. I ended up going with a great mixture of flowers that I never had originally thought of. She was also so polite and personable. Every time I called her I felt like I was the ONLY bride that she was working with (although I know she has many!). Customer service was amazing. The day of the wedding she called to let me know that the votive candles that I had bought were not large enough for the candles that she brought - so she took the time to go back to her shop and pick up extra flowers and place them within the votives to add some dimension. I was floored that she went the extra mile - and it obviously speaks to her committment to ensuring brides are 100% delighted in the floral arrangements. I highly recommend her to any bride!!!

I only needed to purchase a bridal bouquet, groom's boutonnière, and family corsages. I was not treated any differently than if I needed 20 elaborate centerpieces! I could not have designed a more wonderful, lush, beautiful, and PERFECT bouquet without the expertise of Le Francois! It was outstanding, creative, romantic, soft and lush! I knew that I wanted it to be all of these things but their expertise knew how to make it that, what to use, texture, smell and color, as well as in season. Of all my wedding elements, I am saddest that the flowers are gone! I can buy another cake, order more food from the caterer, and look over my photos but this wonderful art piece is gone forever. ONE OF A KIND!

Joanne is a creative genius and a wonderful person to work with! We met with 3 florists and had to choose Joanne. She met with us twice, three hours each time and her passion for what she does was evident in every minute of our discussions. For every problem, she had solutions and ideas galore to turn what I thought were problems into incredible opportunities to make something gorgeous! She gave me great ideas and even helped me figure out how to decorate my favor boxes, which had nothing to do with what we hired her for! She and her staff provided the most beautiful arrangements, bouquets, and other decorations, even incorporating items I had found into their creations. I loved working with her and I appreciated the confidence I had, knowing I wouldn't have to worry about the flowers and all the related decorations. It was a huge load off my mind having someone that talented to care for the details. Our flowers were expensive because we were married the week of Christmas (and flowers go up that week). She didn't want there to be any surprises, so she very carefully itemized what everything would cost. This was my first time working with Joanne, but I will continue to use her for every special occasion. She was a pleasure and came through brilliantly!

Joanne is the most wonderful florist I have ever met! When looking for a florist, I met with about 8, Joanne was my first and she set the bar. I am so happy we went with her!! She even gave me ideas for the venue decorations (that were non floral). She will make your flower dreams come true :) her team is amazing too :) I started to cry when I saw my bouquet because they did such an amazing job. She heard what I wanted, told me some options of flowers that were cheaper that could have the same effect. She stayed in my budget. I can't say enough positive things about this florist besides you would be stupid to not go with them! They are the best!!

I need to be able to give more than 5 stars! Joanne is amazing. I will be the first to admit, I have trouble visualizing things sometimes, but that is certainly not the case here. Joanne is one of the most detail oriented perfectionist I have ever met. The flowers were amazing. The people that run the reception hall said they were maybe the nicest, best flowers they had ever seen. Joanne was the third vendor we went to talk with. She was the warmest and nicest one by far! I am now a life long customer of hers! She was honest, open, and most of all, willing to give advice. When we went to the other two florists, they were just "yes" people, and never gave their opinion, or told us what was an expensive flower, and what flower you could subsititute to get the same effect for a much lower price. Joanne ended up being a little more expensive, but when you break it down versus the other quotes, you end up getting a TON more for your money. In the end, we were between two shops, Joanne and another shop that was much cheaper. Joanne's quote included alot of extras (her ideas that she came up... shes extremely creative). When we went to the other shop to try and compare apples with apples, we either got prices that were much much higher than hers, or a simple "no, we dont do that". So in the end, we couldnt have been happier with our choice!

Joanne was our florist for an April wedding at a vineyard in Connecticut. She was very fun to work with, she had an uncanny ability to transform my vague vision of what I wanted my wedding flowers to look like into the perfect arrangements. She was always lively and full of energy and delivered everything fresh and on time! The bouquets were gorgeous and exactly as I envisioned. Overall, she was very refreshing to work with as she has very straightforward policies and was willing to work with us to make our vision match our budget. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a florist.

Joanne was amazing from the start. She asked for our budget and really provided great flowers within our budget ($600!) She worked with what I had in mind, adding her professional opinion in an appropriate and friendly manner. She let us change things around the week before the wedding and had GREAT communication!
