My event planner, Amanda Barbara Events, recommended Ava Flora and Lori to me based on my "pinterest" board. I know very little about flowers and trusted the recommendation. I am so happy I did - Lori picked up on my vision right away and had so many great ideas on how to achieve the look I had created on pinterest. I got married at Gurney's in Montauk, but planned my wedding from Miami where I recently relocated. On a whirlwind weekend trip to NY to iron out some wedding details, I met with Lori in her beautiful shop in Cold Spring Harbor. Lori opened her shop just for me to accommodate my schedule and put together a BEAUTIFUL arrangement of flowers. I was truly blown away by how much she nailed the aesthetic I was aiming for and it was clear that day how extremely talented Lori is. The day of the wedding Lori blew me away again with the arch she created for me and my husband to be married under- it was based on a pinterest picture but her take on it was so unique and special, and incorporated beautiful fall flowers in season. It came out better then I could imagine. The bridal bouquet and bridesmaid arrangements were PERFECT and the boutonnieres she created for my husband and his groomsmen were exactly what I wanted (actually, even more beautiful then I contemplated). The table arrangements were so breathtaking - I had guests who "never notice flowers" coming up to me to rave about the flowers. I loved working with Lori, she was professional, kind and so accommodating. If you want an elegant, romantic and whimsical look for your wedding, you HAVE to hire Lori and Ava Flora!

I can not say enough great things about Lori and AvaFlora. Lori was the first and only florist I met with. Her shop was so warm and welcoming! When I explained my vision to Lori she immediately knew the look I was going for. Everything she suggested I absolutely LOVED! Lori offers something that is difficult to find in other Long Island florists.

She is so attentive and wants to understand your personal style. What I loved the most was that she recommended I create a Pinterest board that I shared with her so that she can achieve the exact look I wanted and she did! She brought my Pinterest board to life. Lori went above and beyond what I could have asked for.

Lori was so responsive and accommodating. Leading up to the wedding she took time out of her schedule to meet us at the venue to discuss the details where she came up with even more great ideas. I had a lot of last minute additions/changes and she happily accommodated all of our needs. I can't thank her enough for all that she did before and on our wedding day.

Our guests are still talking about our flowers and all of the breathtaking details! Our florals were everything I could have dreamed of and more. I would highly recommend working with Lori and AvaFlora for any event!

Lori and her team are amazing! Lori has this calm demeanor which is just so refreshing – especially on your wedding day! She is so talented and creates the most beautiful and unique flower arrangements. My favorite thing that she created for me on my wedding day was the arch at the end of the isle. She decorated a white iron arch with the most beautiful flowers and it made for the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. I cannot say enough great things about Lori and how talented she is!

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.
