Down to Earth
Working with Joy on our wedding flowers was the most low-key, non-stressful experience. Joy is completely down to Earth and will work effortlessly within your budget, without ever trying to up-sell you. The quality of her work is fantastic - she was able to execute our vision perfectly.Sent on 03/18/2020

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS! Two Weeks later, and they are still just as special! Joy made my vision come to life. I was back and forth with a few ideas for my wedding and Joy listened every step of the way. I’m point blank, blown away at how beautiful everything came out. When I look at my wedding photos so far, it’s my flowers I notice first! So many of my guests have called to compliment the quality of her work. I can’t be convinced there’s competition out there for this florist shop. It simply doesn’t compare! Thank you a million times over!Sent on 02/08/2020

We alway tell couple's the flowers are a big part in your photo's and the main decor people notice, and you couldn't have explained it any better.. It was our pleasure to pull everything together for a magical winter wedding day!

A breath of fresh air (and flowers)
When you are working with your vendors you want to choose someone that you can count on to make sure everything is perfect for your day, someone that you don't need to check up on to make sure everything is being taken care of. This is Elegant Designs by Joy. Joy was so easy to work with and really went above and beyond expected. She really is talented. We got so many compliments about our flowers after the wedding. A huge thank you to Joy for making everything I envisioned come alive for our wedding day!Sent on 11/04/2019

We had such an incredible experience with Elegant Designs by Joy! The flowers came out absolutely stunning! I live in NC so we had to plan everything via email and phone calls and did not meet until the day of the wedding. I sent Joy a few pictures of the color scheme I wanted and the final arrangements exceeded all of my expectations and I am STILL getting compliments from guests about the flowers. My husband and I got married outside in a gazebo which I wanted decorated. Joy added the flowers and accent greenery to the white draping (she worked with the company who did the draping) and the final product came out AMAZING. It was better than I could have ever imagined! Everyone wanted their pictures in front of the gazebo! I can't emphasize enough how pleased I am with everything Joy did to make our wedding day absolutely PERFECT. I highly recommend Elegant Designs by Joy - you are in the best hands!Sent on 12/29/2019

AMAZING from start to finish
Where do I even begin. Joy you were an absolute pleasure and everything you delivered was beyond. From the moment we stepped in her store, I knew her aesthetic was exactly what I was looking for. Our first meeting was like talking with an old friend. I gave her a few inspiration pictures and let her know my color palette of whites and greens. From there she was able to capture exactly what I envisioned and more. My bouquet was what I had alway dreamed it would be; Joy even sourced anemones (not even in season!) to add to my bouquet because she knew they were one of my favorite flowers. Everything else was just as perfect, from the centerpieces, the bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, and even the daintiest flower girl crowns. I couldn't have asked for more. We are SO happy with everything. We would recommend Joy again and again and cannot wait to use her in the future for all of our events. THANK YOU JOY!!!Sent on 09/12/2019

Truly beautiful arrangements- THANK YOU!!
Joy is AMAZING! We wanted a clean, elegant style for our winter wedding- in terms of flowers, we weren’t quite sure how to capture that style-but that is where Joy came in. She is so creative, knowledgeable and talented that she instantly knew what to do to make our wedding vision a beautiful reality. She is very passionate about her work and spent ample time with us going over details to make sure everything she created was aligned with our style. She really went above and beyond. The arrangements she created for our wedding day were absolutely stunning. Everything from the church flowers, to my cascading bridal bouquet, to the bed of roses for the seating cards to sit atop, to the high and low arrangements for the reception were breathtaking. We are still getting compliments on the flowers and how magnificent they were. Joy was a pleasure to work with for our wedding and I cannot recommend her and her team more highly. I will use Joy for any event in the future, and I look forward to continually being blown away by her amazing arrangements. Thank you, Joy & the Team!Sent on 02/12/2020

Amazingly Beautiful Flowers
Joy has a great personality, works with your budget, and truly listens to what you request. I had a certain vision for my flowers and explained exactly what I wanted, including how much I was willing to spend, and Joy was spot on with what she provided – the flowers were exactly what I asked for and I could not have been happier with them. We also had the ability to give a ton away after the wedding as favors, and take a bunch back to decorate our apartment for the week. Very happy with the Joy!Sent on 06/14/2019

Joy is amazing!
Joy always creates gorgeous, unforgettable arrangements - but she really outdid herself for our small Brooklyn wedding this Memorial Day weekend. The most incredible, vibrant, and wild arrangements graced our tables, I had the most magnificent bouquet anyone had ever seen. I wanted some pampas grass in these wooden crates for our welcome table, and the arrangements Joy created in them were so gorgeous that everyone remarked about them - and we ended up toting them to our brunch the following day because we just couldn't get enough! Just an overall amazing job, and we couldn't recommend more highly or be more grateful.Sent on 06/05/2019

Joy is amazing!!!
Always a bridesmaid and never yet a bride, I knew exactly what I had wanted in a florist. I had the pleasure of having Joy create two previous bouquets for me as a bridesmaid, and I was head over heels for them. I never wanted to put them down- at the end of the night I ended up going back for both bouquets to save.
My mother and I met with Joy several months before my wedding and she had asked me to show her some pictures of what I had wanted. All I knew I wanted was astilbe, peonies and anemones. The rest was up to Joy. She and her team created the most GORGEOUS and intricate bouquet incorporating everything I had wanted and them some. Joy went above and beyond for me and made all my dreams come true. I HIGHLY recommend using Joy and her team. There is no other florist on Long Island that could create such jaw dropping floral arrangements. Also, a huge bonus, my mother and I were very happy to see that for all of the bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnières, and additional flowers, we were right on budget. Joy was such a pleasure to work with.
I had the flowers of my dreams and felt like a true queen. I plan on preserving this bouquet to look at for years to come.
Thank you Joy for everything!!Sent on 02/05/2019
Elegant Designs by Joy's reply:Our Pleasure Nicole, Thank you for letting us take your inspirations & run with it... So happy we were able to hunt down peonies and surprise you with them. Our Best to you both, cant wait to see the rest of the pic's...

It was pure JOY to work with Joy! :)
This amazing woman is located in Islip. Her store, to start, is so quaint and beautiful. When my mom and I met with Joy, we were amazed by her knowledge of all things flowers. Flowers were the one thing I had no clue about going in to this wedding process, and Joy assured me that she would take care of everything and make my vision come alive. She was so right. I personally believe she was reasonably priced, and threw in a few extras for us that truly made our decor come alive at Stonebridge. She understood the space, and made sure it all came together. I had emailed her a few times throughout the process due to concerns I had. She emailed me immediately. She has amazing customer service. She is beyond sweet and has an awesome team behind her.Sent on 11/18/2018
I just got my bouquet back from Stonebridge (Tuesday after the wedding - I left them at the venue) after being married on a Friday. My flowers are still as beautiful as they were the day we got them. They have quality products and I am so grateful I found her to be my florist!
I just dropped off my bouquet to be preserved at "Don't Toss the Bouquet" in Patchogue. When I showed up to give my flowers in, Christa (from DTTB), immediately knew it was made by Joy. She was also shocked at how beautiful and alive they still looked after being out of water for 4 days! She continued to tell me about how the flowers she receives from brides who used Joy are by far her favorite flowers. It says a lot that another vendor (who has never met Joy, by the way) says such amazing things about a florist. I cannot wait to get my bouquet back from being preserved so I can relive my day for years to come.
Avoid using a big company. Support the local businesses around you. Go with Joy for your flower needs - she does amazing work and you will not regret it!!
Elegant Designs by Joy's reply:Thank you Kerry for such a nice review. We really do enjoy what we do & our couple's. Our biggest thing is being there, no matter the question, even when not flower related,. we are doing this for years, so if we can offer any help to make our couple's a little less stressed then were doing our job & having fun working with great brides like yourself. xoxo You'll Love your bouquet, Christina is awesome.
Meghan · Married on 10/06/2018
JOY IS THE BEST! I waited until a couple months before my wedding to book my florist because I didn't realize it needed to be done so far in advance but clearly waiting worked out in my favor. Joy had a cancellation and I was able to sneak in! She was amazing and went above and beyond what I thought flowers could be! She understood my idea of playful and colorful and ran wild. I gave Joy approx. 150 bud vases to fill and line the middle of my tables and she did not disappoint! My bouquet was AMAZING! The colors, choice of flowers and arrangement was impeccable. She is a true talent! The small touches on the boutonnieres and corsages made them pure beauties, especially the baby boutonniere for my ring bearer under 2! Choose Joy - you won't be disappointed!Sent on 10/12/2018
Elegant Designs by Joy's reply:Meghan, What can I say ... We loved working with you. Sitting down & putting together idea's to pull together your visions & make your look your own. Our Best to you both. Joy & The Crew.
Jesse · Married on 08/25/2018
My husband and I recently got married, and I must say that Joy was AMAZING to work with. She had just as much fun and pride in putting our vision together as we did, and it came out PERFECT! Not only is she extraordinarily talented, she was so easy to work with and offered up so much insider advice for planning our wedding. We received so many compliments on our floral arrangements. An absolute must for any future LGBT weddings and events.Sent on 09/12/2018
Elegant Designs by Joy's reply:Jesse & Michael, We couldn't be more happy you had picked us be your floral design company. You both had a vision & let us bring it to life. We love being able to design in some many different styles, but the late summer weather couldn't have fit the tropical clean vibe any more.
Jenn · Married on 08/24/2018
All of my sisters wedding vendors were great but if there had to be a favorite it was by far her florist, Joy. So I knew when I got married, naturally, I had to use Joy because of how much my sister raved about her. From the first time I met with Joy, she was patient and understanding of all of my questions and took the time to explain to me different options of flowers, how they would look, hold up during the day, and ultimately fit in with my color scheme/match my dress. She spent a lot of time with me helping me decide exactly what I wanted that I can’t say I felt like a lot of other vendors do. I changed things from my initial vision as the planning process went on and Joy was happy to accommodate my changes. One of my favorite moments from my wedding day was when Chrissy walked in my house to drop off my flowers. I was ecstatic! Joy made my vision come to life better than I could have imagined and my flowers were absolutely beautiful! There are not enough good things to say about this lady. She goes above and beyond to set the bar high for herself - trust me, you will not be disappointed with her product. Bottom line, you are not doing yourself justice if you don’t visit her for your wedding flowers.Sent on 09/14/2018
Elegant Designs by Joy's reply:Jennifer, It was our pleasure to help put together the look you wanted for your wedding day. You & your sister Sammy, just gave us some idea's & being open to different option's make's thing's work all the way around, gives us some wiggle to have create freedom leave's us wanting to do more..So we are able to do a little more from time to time.xoxo Our Best Joy & The Crew.
Liz · Married on 08/18/2018
As soon as I met Joy, I knew she was the one to do the flowers for my wedding. I had met with other impersonal vendors and felt like I was every other bride. With Joy, she took the time to listen to what I wanted and gave us amazing suggestions. She is so knowledgeable of flowers and what is available and when. She made sure that since I wanted anemones and they were out of season, to have silk as a back up (and they looked amazing!!). Other vendors didn’t care and would have given me wilted anemones or whatever white flower was available that day. The day of, everything was on time and seamless. She got my vision perfectly and truly made the biggest difference for my dream wedding!!Sent on 09/14/2018
Elegant Designs by Joy's reply:We really enjoy when our couple's have fun idea's they want to add into their wedding day. Letting us play around with different way's to make sure they all blend together.. Thank you for letting us run with your idea's. Our Best to you & Fred.

Joy and her team were a dream to work with. From the first time I met with Joy, she got my vision (more than I did) and made me feel totally comfortable in her abilities. She did not disappoint. All of the flowers on our wedding day (my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, short centerpieces, garland centerpieces, and everything in between) we absolutely perfect. We could not have made a better choice!Sent on 07/27/2018

Having come from a multi-generational family of florists, our family is very particular when it comes to floral arrangements. When everyone walked into our main reception and saw the beautiful work that Joy created they were all instantly impressed and floored with how extraordinary everything was. And rightfully so - Joy captured our special day and exceeded all expectations. More importantly, she respected our vision, but added her expertise and creativity to deliver something even more special. When we first saw her arrangements we started to tear up because it was that beautiful. Our parents corsages stood out as unique pieces of art, but the real centerpiece was the cascading bouquet. Joy created a stunning bouquet that everyone commented on and really shined in our photos. We can't say the word beautiful enough because that's exactly what Joy created. Beauty. Joy and her staff are absolute professionals and we can't recommend Elegant Designs by Joy enough. Her work speaks for itself, but she truly is in a league all to her own. Thank you so much Joy for making our wedding not only extra special, but extra beautiful.Sent on 06/18/2018

From the moment I walked into joys shop I knew she was the florest I needed for my wedding. She is extremely talented and so creative.

Joy told me to trust her and I gave her full range to put together whatever she thought I would love.... and BOY was she right! She walked into my house the morning of my wedding and I couldn't stop hugging her! Everything from the guys boutonnières, to the flower girl basket, to my bridal bouquet was breathtaking!

When searching for vendors my fiancé and I wanted to find someone that we could connect with. Someone that understood our vision and style. The second I sat down with Joy I knew right away I found my florist!! Joy knew exactly what I wanted. She gave me such good advice and had great ideas. I felt like I’ve known her for years!! The whole process working with Elegant Designs was perfect!Sent on 04/19/2018
I really wanted peonies in my bouquet but we weren’t sure if they would be ready in time. When Joy dropped the flowers off the morning of the wedding she surprised me with peonies!!!

Joy was an amazing person to work with. I showed her several pictures of the style of bridal bouquets and table centerpieces I admired as well as a variety of shades of purple that I wanted for my color scheme. She was so attentive and took the time to show me pictures of the various flowers that would be coming into season for my February wedding and the variety of purple colors. Sitting down with her felt like having coffee with a friend. My mother and I were so happy after our first appointment and knew instantly we wanted Joy and her team at Elegant Designs for the wedding. I nearly started to cry when Joy hand delivered my bouquet - it was more than I could I ever have dreamed of and absolutely perfect. The centerpieces at my reception were just as beautiful. I highly recommend Joy and her team at Elegant Designs!!! -ChristineSent on 03/02/2018

I can’t possibly put into words how happy we are with the flowers Joy and her staff provided for our wedding!!!
Although I did use some photos to show her what I was looking for / envisioning for the wedding bouquets, boutonnières and center pieces, Joy exceeded every expectation I could have possibly had.
All the flowers were fresh, delivered timely, and she even added some special little touches. For example, our center pieces were lanterns with little decorated milk bottles in them, with little firefly lights inside, I asked Joy to create flowers to surround the lanterns- not only did she do a phenomenal job doing so, she called me the day before and asked if she could put some baby’s breath inside the little milk bottles because she thought it would look better that way. She really went above and beyond my expectations and was a pleasure to work with, as was her staff. I couldn’t recommend her more! She’s doing my friends wedding in July and I cannot wait to see the beautiful creations she has in store for her!
Do not hesitate-
Book her!!!!Sent on 01/06/2018
