I can't say enough about Lori at AvaFlora! She is so sweet and incredibly talented!

She was so patient and responsive throughout the planning process. She put together visuals, mood boards, and a clear breakout of what costs what.

And the finished product.... STUNNING. She handled our wedding of 185 people. The centerpieces, the bouquets... they were all perfect and exactly what I was hoping for. Everything was absolutely perfect and I would recommend Lori to anyone planning a wedding

AvaFlora was outstanding!! Lori did an unbelievable job with our centerpieces, bouquets, and personal flowers. I was so happy to find her. We asked for loose, whimsical arrangements- and she blew it out of the water. Check out her website and instagram.

We loved working with Lori at AvaFlora! Lori provided the floral arrangements for our June country club wedding on Long Island, which included large outdoor urn arrangements, flower petals, potted flowers, tall centerpieces, a sweetheart table piece, cocktail hour small vases, bouquets and boutonnieres.

I knew I wanted to work with Lori for several reasons.

1. Lori listened carefully to what I wanted, even when I didn't have a perfectly clear picture. Other florists I met with tried to TELL me what I wanted and weren't really listening. Lori took notes and affirmed what I said.

2. Following our first meeting, Lori emailed me a beautiful, detailed proposal complete with an "inspirational" picture collage, which included photos from my Pinterest board. She expand on my vision to create something cohesive and perfect.

3. Lori is very responsive and would respond to my emails quickly. If I changed my mind about something, she updated the proposal and got back to me fast.

4. Lori was so great about working within my budget!! She was kind, understanding, and eager to come up with solutions. She provided suggestions and alternatives that would bring an arrangement within my price range. I SO appreciated this - we made many changes between our first meeting and the wedding day, and everything was perfect in the end.

5. Lori is creative, and her arrangements are beautiful! I would describe a color scheme and a "feeling" - Lori made it come to life!

6. Lori was on the ball on the wedding day! I didn't have to worry about the flowers for a single second - she arrived with our bouquets before they even entered my mind.

I would recommend AvaFlora in a heartbeat, no matter what size wedding you are having. Even though it's a small shop (in charming Cold Spring Harbor), Lori can handle a big wedding - we had about 180 people at ours (I guess that would be ... medium?). Thank you, Lori, for making our wedding day so beautiful!

I can't thank Lori from AvaFlora enough for creating the most jaw-droppingly beautiful florals for my May wedding at the Bourne Mansion. From the romantic bouquets to the ceremony decor and chuppah to the stunning centerpieces, Lori did the most INCREDIBLE job. She was extremely professional, responsive, and accommodating throughout the year-long planning process. Lori understood my vision from the very beginning and executed it absolutely perfectly - I seriously couldn't be happier with how everything came together to make my wedding dreams come to life. My husband and I are still receiving compliments from guests about her gorgeous creations. Lori's talent, design aesthetic, and passion for what she does at AvaFlora shines through. I would HIGHLY recommend AvaFlora to anyone!

I have been blessed to know Lori through the wedding vendor circuit, and this past March, was honored to officiate her wedding here on the East End of Long Island. So, when it came to my wedding this past October, I could think of no one better to create the floral mood for my special day. Lori worked with us closely to make sure that all the important and sentimental touches were there, from colorful fall arrangements, to flowers that were important to my grandparents. She created a few different "mood boards" for us to make sure that she was on the right track. She even made sure we had extra boutonnieres for my 2 1/2 year old ring bearer (who was certain to play with them)! The colors were so vibrant and the bouquets were more amazing than anything I have ever seen (she even made sure to wrap them in a blue ribbon - since I didn't have my "something blue") :)

Lori is one of the most talented designers I know, and if you want rich, beautiful flowers and accents for your special day, look no further than AvaFlora! Thank you Lori!!! ~Sarah and Kit (10.26.2014)

It's hard to imagine how one can make The New York Botanical Garden even more beautiful than it already is, but Lori Orlando, owner of AvaFlora, did exactly that. The flowers at our wedding this past September were absolutely, positively breathtaking. The bouquets, chuppah, escort table, centerpieces... I cannot put into words how beautiful everything was (I wish I could attach a picture). Even more so, Lori was an absolute pleasure to work with. Always kind, patient and beyond accommodating. To say I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted would be a HUGE understatement. My thoughts were always random, scattered, and inconsistent, but somehow, in the midst of all my babbling, Lori was able to make complete sense of it. Lori, thank you, thank you, thank you for everything. You are truly amazing at what you do, and I am so so happy we strayed from the Garden's vendor list and ended up in your boutique.

Lori was an absolute pleasure to work with. After first stepping into her adorable store in Cold Spring Harbor, I knew I wanted to hire her. She has an exceptional eye for color and creates truly elegant and beautiful arrangements that are both, modern and timeless at the same time. She was very professional, organized, responsive and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. All of the flowers, from my bouquet to the centerpieces to the cake decorations and everything in between, were perfectly executed and were an integral part of making my wedding into a beautiful and cohesive event. Many thanks to Lori and her team!

Hire her! Lori was amazing. She really hears you and makes your vision come to life. We'd never met prior to the wedding day (we had a destination wedding), but 2 minutes after we got off the phone from our first call I wanted to hire her. Then she sent her vision board and that sealed the deal.

She was professional, the value was more than expected and the day was spectacular because of the amazing flowers. She really can see your vision.
