I absolutely loved the flowers for our wedding done by Lora of Sophisticated Floral. She's not only wonderful to work with but a professional and truly gifted in her work. She captured my style and the flowers were such an important element in the wedding and her creations were above and beyond what I could have imagined. I highly recommend Lora.

Thank you Lora. You helped make our wedding day so beautiful!

She was professional, on time, and the flowers were stunning! I would highly recommend Lora at Sophisticated Floral. My theme was a mix of romantic and antique which she helped me define through the use of Pinterest. We then discussed quantities of flower arrangements, and she made it a simple process because of her experience. Thank you Lora!

Lora is amazing. She has a beautiful artistic eye for creating gorgeous arrangements. She spends a lot of time getting all the information she needs on what you want everything to look like, what kind of arrangements she needs and where, and then creates perfect arrangements. She was absolutely wonderful on the day of the wedding, too; she helped us solve some other decoration issues and helped my pastry chef figure out how to get my action figure cake toppers to stay up. I think I picked super expensive flowers, so the cost was pretty high (although I don't know how it compares, I never shopped around because I knew her arrangements are amazing), but I LOVE flowers so it was something I was willing to invest in.

Thanks so much for reviewing my services. It was an absolute pleasuring working with you on wedding flowers. Premium flowers are definitely more expensive than others. Imported Coral Charm Peonies absolutely top that list.

My wedding bouquets far exceeded my expectations! Lora created a stunning bridal bouquet that was more beautiful than the pictures I had sent her from Pinterest. She worked with me and my budget in creating equally gorgeous bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres. I could not have been more satisfied and have already recommended her to friends.

My destination wedding relied on reviews, pictures and emails. Her bouquets are gorgeous and she is constantly posting beautiful pictures on her FB. Her prices are reasonable. She created a Pinterest board for me and we pinned back and forth ideas and suggestions and I was excited for the flowers. I couldn't meet with her face to face and I feel like that was partially to blame with what happened.

After, she said that she had written in her calendar that my wedding was on the Sunday and not on the Saturday it was actually on. I called her 30 minutes before my ceremony – about an hour after she was supposed to be there and she rushed to get everything ready. We delayed the ceremony for 15 minutes but then I decided that with everyone waiting we would just do the ceremony w/o the flowers. She showed up half way through and left the flowers outside by the door to not disturb us.

To me, the flowers looked terrible - like they were thrown together at the last minute. Half of the men in my party didn't wear their boutonnieres. My photographer tore off some of the flowers in my bouquet because some were awkwardly long, off centered and distracting. There were wilting and brownish flowers in the bouquets.

I love flowers. They were a crucial element to my wedding. I loved SFD so much that I even upped my budget. Pretty much all email communication I had had my wedding date in the email title and it was on the contract. It was Easter weekend so perhaps she got "Easter" in her head and it stuck with her.

She refunded the full amount and sent the check asap. She also threw in the wood slices and apologized profusely.

The reason why I hate bad reviews is that it can undermine a business. I'm not writing this review with the intention of doing that. For me if it can be fixed easily then it is not a deal breaker but I still want to know about it. Prices, costumer service and product are core services and would be,

Would I hire Lora to do my flowers? Yes.

It was such a pleasure to work with Lora! She really went above and beyond to make our wedding day beautiful!!! For example, Lora took it upon herself to find silver clothespins for one of the structures I was using at the wedding. This is totally not floral related, but she offered to take this one because she cares so much! I just LOVED working with her. Besides being an amazing person to work with, her designs are just amazing and top-notch! She really listened to my vision and made it all come to life. Throughout the process she was so reassuring about how everything would look--she went above and beyond at our 30-day out vendor meeting, where she showed us what a table would like---this was just a delight because she brought in all this decor to really give us an image, we really appreciated this! From start to finish, Lora was just amazing to work with! She even dropped off flowers at our hotel the night of the wedding to be used the next day at our farewell brunch. I loved working with her and would HIGHLY recommend her! You won't regret it! =) =) =)

I seriously could not say enough about how gorgeous our flowers were, both arrangements and bouquets. Not to mention the price! I think we did 8 bouquets (including mine -the bride) and all the centerpieces (we provided our own yarn-wrapped vases -though Lora did offer to paint them for free) for under $600 -all because she was able to give us beautiful suggestions and options within our budget. And gorgeous!!!!! She also did my husband's gun shell bout, which he loved!!! It's onvious she loves what she does!

I also should mention that she responded to every email and had hundreds of detailed ideas, and was soooo supportive! I would absolutely recommend her and would love to work with her again.

EXCEPTIONAL and EXCEEDED my expectation in every way. sight unseen - selected this florist for my daughters wedding from a website. I live in Columbus OH and she lives in San Jose with a wedding in Newport OR. I was very nervous as Lora and I only discussed over the phone and via pictures what we wanted with regards to color theme and type of flowers.
She came to the venue with everything ready to go and even had a few extra flowers for me to use on the cake. the colors and type of flowers were exactly what I asked for and even when I wanted peonies for my daughters bouquet ( difficult to get this time of year and we ended up deciding to not go with peonies due to the expense) - Lora was able to get the peonies and incorporate them into my daughters bouquet. What a wonderful surprise. Talking about going above and beyond -
The flowers were arranged beautifully and she worked in a very short time notice. This florist is a rare find!

Thank you for your review Ashley. I curious as to why you gave us 3.0 out of 5.0 for responsiveness? This was a last minute inquiry with merely 2 weeks before the wedding. I communicated promptly via phone and email to make this last minute order happen and made the delivery almost 4 hours away.

After my original florist cancelled on me just a couple months before the wedding, Lora was a light in a dark tunnel!! Not only did she do such an amazing job on the flower arraignments (which is expected of every florist), she also went out of her way to make my wedding day the most beautiful it can be! Lora created a board on pinterest JUST FOR ME & we would both add pins of ideas on there for flowers we liked or thought would look good. I mostly told her to do what she thought looked good, because honestly I had no idea! I trusted her & was most definitely not disappointed! My (now) husband even said the flowers look amazing & he doesn't even notice things like that! Lora also found gold ribbon that matched my wedding that didn't look Christmasy at all, which is quite an achievement in itself. She had some flowers left over from a previous event & added them to my bouquets at no extra charge. She also let me use her vases because my original ones were an awkward height. I wish I could add pictures on here, everyone at my wedding was asking who did my flowers & even the lady we rented the venue from was taking pictures of all the flower bouquets/table arraignments. We have a lot of siblings in the family & I am the first to have a wedding. Lora better watch out because she is going to be thee florist for every one else's weddings!

She had some flowers left over from a previous event & added them to my bouquets at no extra charge. She also let me use her vases because my original ones were an awkward height. I wish I could add pictures on here, everyone at my wedding was asking who did my flowers & even the lady we rented the venue from was taking pictures of all the flower bouquets/table arraignments. We have a lot of siblings in the family & I am the first to have a wedding. Lora better watch out because she is going to be thee florist for every one else's weddings! Read less

Lora at Sophisticated Floral Design did a beautiful job with my flowers! I loved my bouquets, then when I saw the ceremony site for the first time I was overjoyed! It was what I had envisioned and more! The centerpieces were beautiful and I received so many compliments from guests. Not only did Lora help set up everything she also stayed to help break everything down after the evening was over. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Sophisticated Floral Design did an amazing job on my daughters wedding. The flowers were fresh, perfect and smelled amazing. Her ability to arrange them to in a manner that fit what the bride desired was outstanding. She did not cause any stress in time that we were so busy with other details. We did not have to worry about her being late or any unexpected issues. You will not go wrong with Sophisticated Floral Design and we highly recommend her without reservation. You will not be disappointed.

What can I say? Lora's work exceeded my expectations! Not only did she come under budget, she saved us a considerable amount of money. Portland is my home, but I am a transplant to the deep south, and she worked with me, long-distance; by phone, email, and mail. She opened her home to me 4 days before my wedding, and allowed me to see all my flowers before everything was put together. She made everything so easy. Everything was beyond perfect! I sing you praises, Lora! Your work is phenomonal!

Lora did an amazing job with everything from start to finish. I was speechless when I saw the amazing floral arrangements that she did for our wedding. She went above and beyond in her arrangements and design, and couldn't be happier then I was that day. She made my dream come true and then some. She is also very easy to work with, I told her what my colors, flowers I didn't want and she produced something breathtaking. I would recommend her a million times over for any event that you are wanting. I don't think that thank you is enough for what you did for me!!

I just recently got married on August 11th. It was an outdoor wedding at Persimmon Country Club in Gresham. When I first met with Lora, she made my family and I feel so comfortable. There is something about her that is real, approachable...like you are talking with a friend. She brought along with her lots of photo albums with ideas and was great about listening to what I wanted. Even though I changed my mind about 10 times from beginning to end, Lora professionalism always stood out. She would listen, then send me ideas on Pintrest of different colors/variations/themes to consider. Eventually, I found the colors/flower combination that I loved. Lora took that idea and then blew it out of the park. She surpassed my expectations for my bouqet, for the flower arrangments framing the altar, and the flower boxes hanging along the aisle. I can't tell you how many compliments we received on the flowers. I even had a special request of incorporating navy/white striped ribbon into the flower arrangments, and I couldn't have been happier with that as well. Lora stands out in her field because she is so adept at listening to what the customer wants, and then using her creativity and expertise to create what you (the customer) couldn't have put into words. I will definitely recommend Lora at Sophisticated Floral to all my friends getting married. She will make your special day incredible!

Sophisticated floral was fantastic! Lora helped me plan my table decorations, even helping me find places that sold / rented what I would need. I don't know much about different types of flowers, so I wasn't sure what to ask for. Lora asked questions about how we wanted the wedding to feel, and came up with beautiful arrangements for us. She was fantastic about letting us know what needed to be done and how things were coming along. She even delivered the flowers on the day of the event, which was very helpful! I would definitely recommend this shop.

I came upon SFD by chance, after being utterly appalled by the outrageous prices I encountered from NW Portland florists who wanted to charge $250+ for a bridal bouquet. I randomly was searching on Craig's List when I found her advertisement. We met a few weeks later and I was really impressed with what she was able to do for us. I gave her my dollar amount, told her our colors and what I liked (tulips) and didn't like (roses). She didn't promise she could get tulips since our wedding was in August and they weren't in season, but she said she would try.

Lora DELIVERED big time. The flowers blew my mind. My bouquet was absolutely stunning, and she did manage to find dark purple tulips--yippy! The bridesmaids bouquets were simple but colorful and lovely. The boutonnieres were just perfect, and my groom's boutonniere lasted all through the week (somehow it came with us on our honeymoon). It was nice to have it the next day for our day after photos.

In the 11th hour I also asked her to do alter arrangements for the church and they were lovely too, in huge glass containers and gorgeous bells of Ireland. Lovely!

I would highly recommend SFD. She will work with any budget and make it fabulous!

I am so glad I chose Lora to be my flower designer! I had a specific look that I wanted and she made it just like I had imagined it to look like! Lora went out of her way to make me a happy bride! She even came the night before and helped us create bouquets that we were suppose to do on our own.

She really wants the best for her customers. With her reasonable prices, planning to the detail, and amazing service, Lora is the girl!

Thank you Lora so much for making my crazy flower ideas come true! You made me very happy!
