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 did an amazing job with our flower arrangements. My family members were fighting over who would be able to take the centerpieces home! We gave Joanne a vision for what we wanted, and she made it happen perfectly!

I was very very happy with my flowers at my wedding. The bouquets were gorgeous (gorgeous!) and the centerpieces were perfect. I didn't give Joanne a ton of direction yet she was easy to work with, accommodating, pleasant and went with the flow. She was on time and did everything I asked her to and the flowers she uses are obviously very high quality. I believe for the quality of flowers, labor costs (she arrived 4 hours before my ceremony to set up) and all the extras her pricing was fair. One thing to note- she doesn't communicate by email or really use any technology (it makes me nervous when people have things written down in pen and paper that could easily get lost) but "alls well that ends well." Overall I would definitely recommend Joanne at Le Francois.

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!!!

Joanne was simply fantastic! All I had to do was give her a rough idea of my vision and she took it from there with tons of creative and unique ideas. I really loved working with her - she is such a sweet woman. Highly recommended!

I was married at the Mystic Seaport in September 2014. I screened a number of florists in the area but I found Joanne at LaFrancois to be the most approachable and flexible. She was upfront that she doesn't check the computer often so if you need her you have to use the phone. That's fine by me, I appreciated her telling me that! Flowers aren't necessarily my thing and I explained that when I spoke with Joanne - she didn't make me feel like an idiot like other florists did for not knowing specific species, etc - I told her the theme, the color palette and the emotions/vibe we were going for for the day and she said she loved it. I followed up with photos via email just to be sure we were on the same page and she confirmed she was on board and could make it work for my modest budget (under $2000 for minimal centerpieces and outdoor arrangements). Because I live in Colorado, we decided not to plan everything over the phone - I trusted her and waited until I could meet in person to see her decor and accessories and take a look at different style of flowers. I didn't mind waiting; it was helpful to meet in person, confirm we clicked and trust that she understood the rustic eclectic arrangements we were envisioning. Her workroom is a crafty artists playspace; I loved it - there are styles galore and decor options everywhere. It's not polished or neat, but instead it was like we were rolling up our sleeves to shop around for the right knick knacks to include. Joanne is incredibly passionate about what she does, she can be spacey but that's becasue her mind is planning and racing at a mile a minute - all good by me as long as she has follow through, I thought - which she does! Her team was also very nice the two times I came in and the one time I had my dog with me they furnished dog biscuits! The day of the wedding she personally delivered our bouquets (on time) and her husband set up the ceremony space and reception room (also on time, no issues with the venue) which I a

Joanne is a great florist. I was thrilled when I saw how all of the flowers turned out on my wedding day. Joanne was able to create bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony decorations that were consistent with my vision, while still staying within a budget I was comfortable with. Although Joanne does not use email, she communicated that upfront and was responsive via phone. This was important since I was an out-of-state bride and had limited opportunities to meet with Joanne in person. When I did meet with her, she really helped me to understand how everything would look for my wedding, pulling together sample flower/color combinations using actual flowers she had in the store, not just pictures from a catalog.

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!
