The bride Jamie was blown away by the wonderful work that Julia did. I was the maid of honor at this wedding so I had some interactions with Julia and she was truly incredible. She listened to what the bride wanted and executed it to perfection. The centerpieces and bouqets were magnificent (and are still in tact today.) Julia also expanded the brides vision by adding a very romantic look with candles and different vase sizes. The tone of the wedding was really set with the arrangements Julia put together. I would highly recommend her services, she was a pleasure to work with.

I cannot begin to express how incredibly talented Julia is. She was the florist for my October wedding and was simply amazing! The flowers and decor were a DREAM. She took my vision and created a truly magical wedding. Our wedding was indoors, but she was able to create a romantic garden atmosphere. We had bouquets, floral centerpieces, hundreds of small and large candles, and a bunch of bud vases filled with gorgeous flowers. Julia is so professional and organized, which is invaluable when planning a wedding. Her passion for flowers and events comes through in everything she does which makes the planning process fun. I am still hearing from our family and friends how beautiful the flowers were. I seriously cannot recommend love and philanthropy flowers enough!

My wedding was a little over two weeks ago, and I am still receiving feedback on how beautiful our centerpieces were! My fiance and I came up with the concept of what we wanted, but Julia really put the whole thing together, inputting her creative touches to our piece. Our guests LOVED the centerpieces, saying it was so elegant and classy, and that they want it for their wedding. All the centerpieces were gone by the end of the wedding because everyone wanted to take it home with them.

Aside from the flowers, Julia was such a pleasure to work with! I booked Julia a little early in our planning, so there were a few changes made throughout the planning process. Julia was so receiving, open, and patient with our suggestions, changes, and questions. On top of that, Julia really helped guide us in selecting our flowers to help stay within budget. Julia delivered everything and more on our wedding day. I know a lot of work went into putting everything together, and I am so thankful for everything she has done for us. I highly recommend Julia for your wedding, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Julia was extremely attentive and professional with our event. Never once did she ask me the same question twice as to what we wanted. I told her very little, and gave her room to use her own initiatives and flair to do our flowers for our wedding. The result was absolutely outstanding, we got so many compliments on the arrangements, and questions as to who did the flowers.

everything was just beautiful, the arrangements were put together with style and grace. The colors were amazing. The florist put everything together neatly and was a professional from start to finish. I would definitely use her again and can recommend to my friends in confidence that she won't let them down and will only do 110%.

I was so pleased with the work Love & Philanthropy did for my wedding. We had a black and white theme and Julia tied in the floral arrangements beautifully. She did black and white Containers with polka dots that matched the invitations. They were gender neutral, sophisticated and very appropriate for the occasion. The flowers were so fresh and vibrant people who took home the arrangements said they looked beautiful for the whole following week!

Julia, you are amazing! The two bouquets were perfect for our casual wedding at City Hall in New York. The arrangements were different yet matching in style and we had so many people ask us about your lovely bouquets. We were indeed so proud to carry them during and after our "equality" wedding. We really appreciate your excellent work, efficiency, and generosity!
Thanks a million,
Sonja and Sue

Julia from L&P is simply AMAZING. She did the flowers for my wedding and I honestly can say that I couldn't have asked for a more amazing result. She is very professional, organized, detail-oriented and so, so amazingly sweet. I found out about Julia through an old friend and I really hit gold finding her. She was by far the best vendor that I worked with throughout the wedding planning process. She always quickly answered my (hundreds) of emails, and even suggested/surprised me with tons of things on my wedding day. She not only made my visions come to life but completely exceeded all of my expectations. When you book with L&P you get the best of the best, thank you for making everything so amazing, Julia!

For some reason, my fiancee put me in charge of flowers for our wedding in June due to her busy schedule. I googled around a little bit and found Julia and her company. After a free consultation I was sold and hired Love & Philanthropy Flowers and Events to supply the centerpieces and floral designs for my wedding. I was thrilled at the overall experience that Julia and Love & Philanthropy offered. Her prices were competitive in regards to the other vendors I dealt with and the "customer service" was amazing. Julia realized that me being a guy didn't exactly prepare me for being in charge of dealing with flowers for a wedding. I felt at ease with her knowledge of the business and extra touch and care in realizing that I knew nothing about the industry. I also fell in love with her business spin involving a donation of 10% of all proceeds to charity. What a good hearted and thoughtful touch! The other vendors I dealt with were very curt and almost made me feel childish in the fact that I didn't know what I wanted or how much I wanted to spend. The prices turned out to be extremely reasonable, the flowers were magnificent and fresh and exactly as described and delivery was perfectly on time on the big day. The whole experience even got my fiancee to ask me "How I got to be such an expert in the flower business?" We received compliments all throughout our night together at the freshness of the flowers and the artistic and creative manner in which they were presented. I told them Love & Philanthropy deserved the credit and even gave Julia some free advertising lol. Needless to say at the end of the night somebody from each table had taken a centerpiece with them. My Aunt called me a few weeks later to let me know that the flowers were still alive and made a nice centerpiece for a dinner party she had. Love and Philanthropy continued the next day with a follow up call to make sure the quality was satisfactory which I also thought was a very nice touch. Overall, this company delivered on every promise they made and passed with flying colors. I felt comfortable in Julia's hands and felt that she went above and beyond to make our special day that much more special. My fiancee and I were thrilled with the entire experience as were all the guests. Overall it was a wonderful experience dealing with a wonderful company who I will unquestionably use again when in need of a Floral Designer. I would rate this company a 5 out of 5 and recommend them to anybody looking for a great Floral Designer with a great cause. Thank you Love & Philanthropy!”

My wedding was this past May, I contacted Julia right before the holidays in November. I gave her a general idea of what I was looking for and my budget of $6500, for my centerpieces and bouquets. About a week later, she had exactly what I wanted. The arrangements were all tasteful and elegant, white roses, white hydrangeas and white orchids. I had a 200 guests and 10 people in my Bridal party, Julia was a pleasure to work with, even after I decided to change some arrangements last minute. At any moment Julia was accessable and easy to work with. Her creativity helped give me the wedding I had always dreamed of.
