praise & love

I love Lori! She is not only an exceptional florist, she is an attentive and driven business owner and it shows in every piece of work she puts out in the world. Lori did all the floral arrangements for my wedding, from the elegant bouquets, to the intricate center pieces and hanging baskets in the tent, to the endless garlands and urn arrangements at the ceremony. The arch that she created as the backdrop to our ceremony took my breath away, it was so flawlessly assembled and had gorgeous personal touches that I really appreciated. Lori is super detail oriented, has an eye for rare beauty and runs an amazing small business. I love working with her and I turn to her for all floral inspiration!”

“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. 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 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!”

My event planner, Amanda Barbara Events, recommended AvaFlora and Lori to me. 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 came out better than 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. 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 AvaFlora!”

Lori Orlando of Ava Flora is such a dream to work with. My planner, Amanda of Amanda Barbara Events referred me to Lori based on the description of what I was looking for, and I couldn’t have hoped for a better experience. Lori is so calm and patient and really seems to understand your vision for your big day. My husband didn’t have a lot of opinions on all the details I picked out but he could not stop talking about how impressed he was by the gorgeous flowers and the way in which Lori arranged them. It’s extremely rare that my expectations are exceeded and I’m happy to say that my wedding day was one of those few occasions. I can’t say enough about how perfect my experience was with AvaFlora; they are simply the best!”

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!”
