Flowers by Laurel
We couldn't have been happier with Flowers by Laurel! We planned our Redondo Beach wedding while living across the pond in London, and Lovorka was more than happy to do everything mostly over email/phone. When we met her only a couple of months before the wedding to finalize everything, she had captured exactly what we wanted just from the few internet photos I emailed her. She was so accommodating with our distance and even drove us back to our hotel after our last meeting a few nights before the wedding (our rental car wasn't ready yet!). And when the flowers arrived the day of the wedding I was taken aback by how beautiful and perfect they were - all for such a great price! Basically, Lovorka is an amazing florist and an even nicer woman! I can't say enough nice things about her.
Lovorka did an amazing job! She is so passionate about what she does that she really works to make your wedding flowers and arrangement absolutely beautiful! She was excellent at responding to email and phone and when we met in person she was very good an explaining everything. I am not a huge wedding person so it was nice to have someone who loved what they did for a living and who was able to help me through picking the most beautiful flower displays for my wedding. We had a arch as well made by her that displayed over us during the wedding and it looked absolutely gorgeous in person and in our wedding pictures. Great job! I would definitely recommend Flowers by Laurel.
WOW! Lavorka and her team did a remarkable job of producing what was invisioned by our daughter and son-in-law for their wedding. Flowers by Laurel was easy to work with; they listened, and they delivered.
Every flower arangement was perfect from the ceremony to the reception. It created such a beautiful setting. From the father of the bride, I say Thank you Lavorka! You do amazing work.
Both of us, my husband and I are very grateful to Lovorka for beautifying our wedding day! Lovorka is very creative, and able to create new and unique floral pieces of art, she listens and does everything in her power to help you express your ideas. This lady really goes out of her way to make you happy.
Lovorka is great to work with. She really knows her stuff and made our wedding and reception look amazing. She used fresh, high quality flowers that lasted. Everyone complimented us on our colors and she put everything together very nicely. My bouquet was gorgeous, and the bridesmaids bouquets were beautiful as well. I was very happy with her work. She also met with us twice, several times via email as my ideas changed throughout the planning process, and she worked with us offering up suggestions and keeping within our budget as well. I would definitely work with her again next time I need flowers!
Working with Lovorka was a breeze! Since our first meeting I knew I was in good hands. She helped me pick a family of flowers that made sense (not to mention absolutely beautiful)....from my bridal bouquet, to the arbor and everything in between.
Lovorka is AMAZING! She's incredibly knowledgeable and so talented! She was such a pleasure to work with and made the whole planning process so easy. She has several years of experience and a portfolio of photos to help give you an idea of what your wedding will look like. Absolutely worth every penny!
Lavorka is amazing. Our flowers turned out truly beautiful. She is also willing to work within any budget. Her work ethic is amazing and she's so very nice and sweet. We were thrilled to have her a part of our wedding day and I highly recommend her!
Lavorka was awesome! Very professional and sweet. Our flowers were beautiful! Thank You so much for everyting. Our wedding was amazing because of you.

I did meet with one of the assistants and did not have a good experience. Don't get me wrong, the photos looked amazing and I’ve seen their beautiful work at various events. After I explained our ideas and showed sample clips of what we wanted she came up with an estimate that was extremely out of range from other florists. When I attempted to figure out why the quote was so high, she shook her head and said that's just how much it costs. She then dismissed me and began talking to another client that was making a payment. There were no follow up calls after our appointment… I was very disappointed.
Meeting Lovorka, the owner of flowersbylaurel was a peak experience. With over 20 years of experience and her flair for perfection she immediately was my choice for the wedding designer for the flowers. It was my son's wedding and I was in complete charge of all the details and choices of vendors because he and his lovely bride-to-be live in Panama. The wedding was being held at La Venta Inn, a magnificent location and Tim from La Venta had a list of vendor resources for me to explore. My appointment with Lovorka was a delight. It was so easy to find the flowers we wanted because of the system of reviewing photos on her personal online software. We discussed colors and type of flowers and what we would need for the bride, groom, wedding party, tables, decorating the gazebo where they would be married and more. When my son and his fiance arrived in L.A. right before the wedding and we had a meeting at flowersbylaurel to review the flowers and designs. The bride had some of her own ideas and we integrated them into the final choices. What a fabulous experience working with a person like Lovorka that is so peaceful, calming and creative and experienced. The wedding was December 20, 2008 and the flowers exceeded our expectations. They were gorgeous and perfectly placed. The flower girl was four years old and the charm of her head piece and small floral basket was unforgetable. Everything was so beautiful. I would highly recommend to anyone for any affair that if you want a carefree, extraordinary event use Lovorka at flowersbylaurel in Redondo Beach.
The people were exteremly kind to work with and the flowers were beautiful!!!
They worked with me. I told them my ideas, showed them sample pictures and they in turn had a great database of pictures from previous weddings to which I could say, "yes, exactly like that!" Working together, we found exactly the flowers and types of bouquets, arrangements and gazebo designs I was looking for. They worked with my odd requests, like putting the table bouquets in mason jars I provided, incorporating sea glass in the flowers and cutting up a capiz shell curtain to hang from the gazebo. On the day, everything was done exactly right and they were there on time and made sure I was happy before they left. Their price was in the middle of three I met with. Flowers are never cheap, but I highly recommend them.
Flowers by Laurel is the absolute best choice for your wedding day or any special event. Lovorka truly feels the moment, and makes it as special as if it were her own family. She will take lots of time to walk you through what you want your flowers to look like, and what overall look you are trying to create. She does not rush you through the process, but truly takes the time to get to know what you want and how you ultimately picture it in the end. She did not try to upsell me a lot of things that I may not need, but at the same time, remembered to ask me about all the odds and ends that slipped my mind!
I felt 100% confident in her abilities and her artistic eye. On the day of the wedding, I was not surprised to see that everything was perfectly arranged, exactly as we discussed, and as I pictured. And, I never for a moment, worried that the flowers wouldn't show up or wouldn't be late. You will not regret working with this wonderful, wonderful lady and her lovely team! They are great!
Beautiful arrangements, lovely people to work with, a real gem!
Always beautiful & on time.
