  • Though I decided to save on flowers by doing them myself, JoAnn was wonderful to work with. If budget was not an issue, I would have loved to have used her services. From the moment that I contacted her, she did everything possible to make my vision come to life and work with my budget. I especially loved the program she used to show me what my flowers could look like!

  • JoAnn was simply amazing to work with! I couldn't be happier with the flowers she put together for our wedding. I immediately knew I wanted JoAnn to be a part of our big day after our first phone call. After talking with her and sending her over a few pictures I had in mind, she emailed me a detailed proposal, outlining my vision and turning it into reality. She promptly responded to all my emails- even if it was just to tell me she was on vacation, which I really appreciated. She was always ready to answer all my questions, stay within my budget, and let me know the pros and cons to any flower that I asked about. The bouquets she crafted were simply beautiful. My girls and I received so many compliments on them. JoAnn truly knows what she is doing and is a pleasure to work with!

  • JoAnn is one of the most incredible people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. From my bridal shower to my wedding our flowers were the most gorgeous arrangements I have ever seen. I am a very picky, attention to detail kind of person and it was fate that brought me to JoAnn and her team. She took my vision and brought it to life, in an even more gorgeous way than I could have ever imagined. The flowers were fresh and beautiful and the colors were exactly what we wanted. I’m still getting compliments about our centerpieces. If you need flowers for any occasion, look no further, you need JoAnn. ❤️❤️ *pictures to come 💕

  • I can’t thank Joann enough. My flowers were gorgeous and added the finishing touch to my dream wedding. It was a stress free process and she even does a sampling event so that you can see what your flowers look like (not something many vendors offer). Thank you Joann

  • Joann at CBD is amazing and wonderful to work with. We got married on a warm August day and all of our flowers were fresh and beautiful all day. The colors for our wedding were gray dresses and suits and peach flowers. Joann worked with me to help me find the perfect peach flowers, including my favorite, Gerber Daisies, for the wedding. I loved all of the bouquets and centerpieces. I would highly recommend working with Joann and CBD for beautiful flowers!

  • JoAnn and her team were so amazing and great to work with! Throughout our meetings up until the big day everything went perfect! Half way through my planning I had a change of heart on what style of flowers I wanted and they were so great about it and said they could absolutely change it up! JoAnn and her great team were so easy to talk to and really know what they are doing. They knew exactly what I wanted and were extremely flexible! Everything looked beautiful and it was just as I imagined! I'm so happy we found Cherry Brandy Designs and I would absolutely recommend them !!

  • I cannot thank JoAnn and her team at Cherry Brandy Designs enough for the beautiful wedding flowers that they provided. They made the whole process of selecting our flowers and arrangements so easy. I had a tight budget for flowers and JoAnn worked with me to ensure that my budget was met with the most beautiful flowers possible. I am so happy with how everything turned out!

  • JoAnn was my saving grace during my wedding last weekend. When I learned my father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and if I wanted him to be there to walk me down the aisle, I would need to plan a wedding in 2 months. The first day I met JoAnn, I told her my story and she let me sob my eyes out in her office. I believe everything happens for a reason and God sent me to JoAnn that day because he knew I needed her, even when I did not. She promised me my wedding would be amazing and she would make sure of it! Planning a wedding in 2 months is an impossible task, but with JoAnn's help and guidance, it all came together. Even when our officiant backed out a week before the wedding, she set us up to make sure that was also taken care. The day came and my flowers couldn't have been more beautiful. The bouquets, boutonnieres, and table settings were a beautiful blue,even in the middle winter. JoAnn was my florist, but I am proud to now consider her a close friend who I will forever b...

  • I simply can not say enough about Cherry Brand Designs, JoAnn and her entire staff. When we hired JoAnn, I knew I was getting a great florist. What I did know was that I was also gaining a trusted friend. JoAnn helped me figure out what flowers fit my style, my budget and my wedding. Aside from being just my florist, she gave me valuable advice on wedding planning as a whole - recommended vendors, gave me tips so other vendors didn't take advantage of me, and even talked me through not being a bridezilla a few times when I definitely needed it. JoAnn, Heidi, Crystal and team - I am forever grateful for your flowers, your support and your continued friendship. I will be using you for flowers in every aspect of my life and recommending you to EVERYONE I know. If I could do it all over again, the only thing I would change would be to book JoAnn sooner. Thank you!

  • Cherry Brandy Designs did the flowers for our ceremony and reception, and working with JoAnn was such a planner. A wedding planner by trade, she saw a gap in the floral industry as far as the service provided and what is generally required by most brides - and decided to fill it herself. And she goes above and beyond, meeting with us twice and putting together a whole prospectus of what we chose - which includes pictures to give you an idea of what she's thinking. It's so helpful to get that visual and make sure you're all on the same page. Everything was on time, and the flowers lasted beautifully all day - thank you for doing such a great job!

  • From the first phone call we had with JoAnn, we knew she was the perfect florist for our August wedding at Onteora Mountain House. I didn’t know much about flower names, but I knew my style vision. JoAnn listened, offered advice, and shared in my excitement. Her attitude wasn’t fake like some other vendors I had encountered, and she didn’t try to upsell me to run up my bill. We ordered my bridal bouquet, 9 bridesmaid bouquets, 13 boutonnieres, 1 corsage, 3 ceremony arrangements with vases and columns, scattered rose petals, submerged arrangements with floating candles for various stations, 15 centerpieces, and a garland for the sweetheart table. On the wedding day, I was ecstatic to find that my vision had turned to reality, because Cherry Brandy listened, understood, and followed through. Everything was beautiful! We recommend them to all couples in the area.

  • We chose Cherry Brandy Designs because they were on the preferred vendor list from our venue (Arrow Park). I wish I had researched more before choosing them. After talking about a general look and making a deposit, I was told there would be one day to view samples and it ended up being a day I was out of town. A second date was chosen by JoAnn and we drove from NYC up to Port Ewen. It turns out the store front is actually a work shed and had no running water that day (which I found out after using the bathroom and being unable to wash my hands). There were no centerpieces or bouquets ready for us and we were mostly just shown pictures on her phone. We had to ask outright to see an example, which we were shown a rough idea of and told to "imagine". For a florist, there were actually no flowers to view. This was very disappointing after making the drive up. At this point we considered find another florist, but had already paid a deposit and it was very close to the wedding. After emailin...

    Caitlyn... I’m truly sorry you feel this way. Your flowers were beautiful, and we went far beyond your $35 per centerpiece budget. As far as your sample appointment, as explained, we were in the middle of renovations at our $60,000 SHED. If you had asked about the water, I would’ve told you the other sink worked. It’s our studio/workshop, not a retail shop. How petty! Our policy is to set up weekend appointments for samples, grouping each seasons weddings into one weekend, and everyone was able to make it but you. I did have your sample set up on the table, with a bit of the greenery missing. Yes, I showed you a few photos, as the eucalyptus had dried up and I didn’t want to show you dead greenery. You had your back to us when we walked into the suite when we delivered. As I walked in with all of your bouquets, I said (quite loud & friendly) “HI LADIES!” I spoke with several of your attendants, and they commented on how pretty everything looked. I spoke with my assistant and she confirmed this!! I wish you had asked for a refund after the sample appointment and before we worked so hard to help make your day beautiful, because I might have been ok with that. And, I’m sorry you felt our delivery fee was so high. We (2 of us) took (3) hours to properly set up your centerpieces, stem by stem, so they would look beautiful, and had to drive back down the following week to pick up the rentals. It calculates out to $20 per hour, per person!! I’m sorry you didn’t speak to me about this privately, instead of posting so many untruths on social media. I hope you don’t feel as insulted as I do. You forced me to defend myself. Thank you!
