Hi, I’m Joy,
flower lover, flower farmer, and flower artist at Garden by the Gate Floral Design. I grew up doing weddings with my mom where I graduated from carrying buckets to arranging the flowers! I started Garden by the Gate Floral Design in 2013 after I did all of the flowers and decor for my daughter’s wedding. When the wedding was over, I wanted to keep going! I needed another creative project so I started Garden by the Gate.
When I’m not working on a wedding, I’m usually in the garden tending to the dahlias, English roses, and peonies on our three acres. In the winter, you’ll find me in the kitchen baking my famous cookies and cake pops.
I specialize in weddings!
Garden by the Gate Floral Design only does weddings! I’ve been working with flowers all of my life, but I’m currently back in flower school! Soon I’ll hold the advanced degree of Wedding Floral Specialist from the Floral Design Institute. I can’t wait to talk with you about your vision for your wedding day. We’ll share ideas and design the perfect wedding flowers and decor for your special day.
What we do
Your ideas come to life in custom wedding bouquets, hair flowers, centerpieces, ceremony arrangements and more. We can design your entire wedding to reflect your personal style, including decor rentals.
Garden by the Gate Floral Design uses flowers grown in our North Canton garden or from local flower farms. For the unusual or out-of-season blooms, we work with local providers.
We’re here for you
