Joy Suits

Owner of Mini Rose Farm

Joy Suits, head designer, has a rich business and communications background, but floral design and artistry is her passion. If you step into the home, the heart of operations, of Mini Rose Farm Floral, you may see Joy bringing design ideas to life in the kitchen or dining room. You may see various family gathered around at any time to lend a helping hand, including her husband, Joseph Suits, who supports his wife in all aspects of the business. Behind the scenes are a few folks dedicated to the vision and success of Mini Rose Farm Floral including myself, Tammy Fox.  I head up the marketing team, just to give you a sneak peek at the commitment and love that surround this business. 

Tamara Fox


Virginia Beach Event Manager

Tamara Fox is our Virginia Beach Division Manager. She has over 20 years of experience with wedding and event planning. Tamara is married to a first responder and together they have two adult children. Tamara has a bachelor's degree in psychology and master's degree in professional counseling but decided to turn her passion for helping into a successful career in real estate and event planning. Tamara is a beach girl at heart and loves to read and spend time writing when possible. Tamara primarily handles the social media and blogging for Mini Rose Farm but also assists in florals and coordination. Her passion for people make her an asset to the team as she seeks to help turn a bride's vision in to reality at a budget she can afford.

Shiva Schilling

Assistant to the Owner

Long time Lovettsville residents, Shiva and her husband moved to the area before many of the homes in the neighborhood were built.  According to Shiva, “We have two amazing kids who keep us on our toes and light up our lives.” When asked what excites her about joining the Mini Rose Farm team, she replied, “On the list of things I love, weddings are pretty high up there.  I love the fashion, the energy, the way the groom looks at his bride coming down the aisle, the love in the air and most importantly, the flowers!!  I am happy to be part of the team and look forward to learning a lot from Joy and her designers.”

No overhead costs

Not having a store front means that I don’t have to overcharge for your wedding. Your flowers are purchased from the same wholesalers as other florists, at the same discounts and those savings are passed to you.
