  • Cherry Brandy Designs did an absolutely INCREDIBLE job for our wedding! The quality and size of the flowers was exceptional and the arrangements were vibrant, elegant and stunning. Every expectation I had was exceeded a thousand times over. I cried from happiness when the bouquets were brought in to my bridal suite. It was everything I had ever dreamed of, created with such limited and obscure information from myself (how exactly do you describe the emotions and atmosphere that flowers can create???). Everyone commented on how they were the most beautiful wedding flowers they had ever seen, and it is not an exaggeration. On top of all of this, they were so affordable! My wedding day was an absolute fairytale, in no small part due to the hard work and incredible talents of the florists at Cherry Brandy Designs.

  • Let me begin by saying that the start of our wedding day was chaos. Several of the people in the bridal party were not where they were suppose to be when they were suppose to be there. We was unable to meet the girls who dropped off the flowers but my matron of honor did. She said they were nice and happy. The bouquets were delivered with vases and water to the Inn and the table settings were delivered to our venue on time and in perfect condition. The flowers were beautiful. The way JoAnn arranged them was exactly what I wanted. We had yellow sunflowers, red daisies, orange ranunculus and white freesias and some greenery. The colors were so balanced, the flower sizes compliments each other with the sunflowers being just large enough to take center stage but so not large that they overwhelmed the arrangements and the bouquets themselves were the perfect size. JoAnn is super nice and awesome to work with. We spoke to her on the phone and through email and she was always quick to answer ... Read more

  • I had absolutely no reason to doubt JoAnn and Cherry Brandy Designs when I booked them as my flower vendor in February for my June 10, 2017 wedding. They had rave reviews and beautiful pictures, and JoAnn was incredibly accommodating. However, I had a low budget (which JoAnn was willing to work with me on) and every picture I sent them was straight from Pinterest—certainly there was no way the flowers I would pick up for my wedding day could be as amazing as the pictures I sent JoAnn for inspiration. But WOW, did JoAnn and her ladies deliver! My bouquet was, quite honestly, the most beautiful bridal bouquet I have ever seen, and was even MORE stunning than the Pinterest images I had sent over! The bridesmaids bouquets, smaller version of mine, were just as beautiful, as were the pew bouquets that we hung at the church. The buckets of eucalyptus and greens for the table runners (which we picked up and put together ourselves the day before the wedding to save money) were lush and plent... Read more

  • My husband and I were married May 20, 2017 and we were so happy to have had JoAnn and Cherry Brandy Designs! JoAnn was wonderful to work with: so helpful, friendly, informative, and incredibly accommodating. The floral designs JoAnn and her staff created were beautiful and made our ceremony and reception so lovely. The flowers were so fresh and amazing: the white roses and blue hydrangeas were the biggest we've ever seen and made our centerpieces look extra special. My beautiful Grams, Mom, and MIL delighted in their pretty white rose corsages, hubby and his groomsmen looked dapper with their simple boutonnieres, my beloved bridesmaids and MOH loved their bouquets, and I was stunned at my gorgeous bouquet which I've since dried and is now displayed on my dresser. We couldn't have asked for more beautiful décor for our wedding day! Thank you, JoAnn!

  • Cherry Brandy Designs was the perfect choice for our Hudson Valley wedding. From the start, they were extremely responsive, and able to build on my ideas and make them come to life in ways more beautiful than I ever imagined! They worked within our budget and had lots of helpful hints for making the most out if. Highly recommended!

  • The short version is Cherry Brandy was a pleasure to work with, helped us stay on budget, and on the day of the wedding, the flowers were truly amazing and exceeded our expectations. The long version: Cherry Brandy exceeded our expectations in every way. JoAnn was extremely responsive, kind, and helpful throughout the process. A lot of other florists didn't get back to me with quotes or were generally difficult to communicate with, but we booked Cherry Brandy on the basis of their superior customer service. JoAnn encouraged me to send over ideas and never made me feel like I was asking too much or had too many questions, etc. At times, I wasn't sure what I wanted or had way too many ideas, but JoAnn worked with us to hone into what our vision was and she really, really got it perfectly! On the day of the wedding, the flowers were BEAUTIFUL!! When I saw my bouquet, I nearly cried and I'm not really the mushy type. The flowers and decor were truly a highlight of the day. We recei...

  • It was a pleasure to work with Joann. She was recommended to me by my officiant and I could not be happier to have met her. She is talented, creative and accommodating. Made the process so easy and seamless. I gave her my vision and she executed it perfectly while staying in budget. She had great ideas and was wonderful to work with. I recommend her- look no further call her now to book your wedding or event!!!! Thank you JoAnn and team- you guys rock!!

  • Cherry Brandy Designs provided the bride's bouquet and the bouquet for all 8 of the bridesmaids. I had no idea what flowers I wanted (flowers just aren't my thing). All I told them was that I wanted to keep them in the coral/peach color family. I emailed them a few pictures of bouquets I had like and trusted that they would provide some nice bouquets. Well, THEY DID! The bouquets were more beautiful that I could imagine. Plus, they were able to attached 2 of my Grandmothers' handkerchiefs and some pins and charms from my family to my bridal bouquet. Everything came out amazing. I would highly recommend them!!

  • My fiance and I met with JoAnn and didn't have an exact floral design in mind. We hosted our wedding at our Hudson Valley farmhouse, but gave her pretty vague direction... "overgrown", no specific color palette, "we like herbs" (LOL!)... also, our budget was nothing to get excited about. SHE HIT IT OUT OF THE BALLPARK. Our tables were country/rustic/garden chic perfection. Runners of woven greenery. Bud vases with wildflowers, herbs and eucalyptus. The bridal/maids bouquets also included roses and hydrangea, and were absolutely breathtaking. I wish I could take more credit for the vision! She even made a couple little custom creations, like clips for our puppy's collars and a comb with flowers for my hair. JoAnn's work alone really polished the look of our whole wedding. We went from "backyard gathering" to "country wedding" in one consultation. FIVE STARS IS NOT ENOUGH!!! Thank you!!!!!

  • JoAnn and Heidi are amazing! They are knowledgeable, helpful and always professional. Their bouquets, boutineers, and corsages were gorgeous and made my wedding truly special. JoAnn and Heidi went above and beyond to make sure the centerpieces were perfectly set up and arranged. I would only do business with them again! The flowers were excellent quality, too. Overall, A++ service!!

  • Working with JoAnn and Heidi was phenomenal, they were one of my favorite vendors! From the first time we met up I knew that they would be the florists for me. They listened to everything I wanted and took good notes. We looked at pinterest together and they totally understood what I was looking for. I had a rustic/tree themed wedding and they pulled it off exactly like what I wanted. The bouquets were GORGEOUS! I was so happy and everyone loved the flowers. For centerpieces, I wanted every one different and used a lot of my own antique collection for containers. I gave them an assortment of lanterns, watering cans, boxes, etc - all things that needed special foam and such to put flowers in. They all came out amazing! The price was very reasonable also. They will work within any budget you tell them. We met again when it came closer to the wedding for me to see samples and discuss last minute details. Heidi and JoAnn are so friendly and easy to talk to, I felt like we were old friends ... Read more

  • JoAnn and Heidi were the best possible floral team I could have ever worked with! As many brides know or will soon find out, having real flowers on your wedding day can get expensive fast. My husband and I wanted the wedding to look beautiful and elegant, however at a price that we felt was reasonable. As a type A bride, planning an out of state Latino wedding, my budget was extremely important but I didn't want to have to compromise the desired look we were going for. I presented them my budget and my numerous over-the-top ideas that I wanted for the wedding. They very kindly gave me estimates for my elaborate ideas and then worked with me diligently over the course of a month to make adjustments to the floral designs (types of flowers used, color combinations, types of arrangements and glassware, re-purposing arrangements throughout the day, etc.) until we were able to make all of our needs fit our price point. They genuinely made me feel comfortable with the final decisions we made.... Read more

  • JoAnn and Heidi are a FANTASTIC team! From our first phone call, JoAnn instantly made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions with knowledge and confidence. She continually worked with us throughout the planning to maintain our budget, even after Pinterest gave us a few more ideas we hadn’t originally planned on! She even offered to meet us halfway between Port Ewen and Queens for our first meeting. I really appreciated that. Heidi is so sweet and friendly, and SO amazingly talented. She paid such close attention to all of our ideas and explained everything she envisioned so thoroughly, showing us photos of all the flowers and even drawing little sketches of how it would all be laid out. We really felt like Heidi understood the non-traditional look we were going for with our centerpieces, and she took it above and beyond anything we could’ve hoped for. When I finally got to see my bouquet on the day of the wedding, I was speechless. It was absolute PERFECTION. She ... Read more

  • Cherry Brandy Designs was definitely great for helping my fiancé and I stay within our budget. They created beautiful centerpieces for cocktail hour and helped my vision come to light with the table centerpieces; I just provided them the materials. JoAnn was very communicative in the beginning and reached out to me to make sure that everything was squared away. However, I requested specific hydrangea for my bouquet and bridal bouquets and that is not what I received. The church pew flowers were not what I expected either; smaller and not wrapped with silk ribbon like we had discussed. I was so wrapped up in my day I didn't notice until I saw pictures! My tossing bouquet never appeared and my mom was supposed to receive another wrist corsage, which also did not happen. My bouquet also started to fall apart during pictures. All that I can say was I was disappointed in this vendor.
