Lorelei made my dream wedding a reality!!! I can't take all the credit tho, my wedding planner, Jackie Murphy, is the one who found her (I believe she has worked with her previously). I was planning a Los Angeles wedding from Hawaii so I was never able to actually look at any arrangement examples before the wedding. I just trusted my wedding planner. I described to her exactly what I wanted and it was as if Lorelei read my mind. The decor was even more beautiful than I expected! Lorelei was so sweet and helpful! She was even able to add in my last minute requests. I received so many compliments on the decor. The centerpiece were just fabulous! My sweetheart table amazing! I just cannot express my gratitude enough for the amazing job Lorelei and her staff did. I would highly recommend them for your next wedding or event. Thank you so much Lorelei for all your hard work!

Lorelei and her team did a fabulous job for my recent spring wedding in April 2015. I had a vintage, light blush and gold theme- and Lorelei executed it more beautifully than I had even imagined. People are still raving about the flowers at the wedding! The centerpieces were full and on beautiful gold candelabras. They were surrounded by 5 small gold votive cups filled with flowers for people to take home! It was such a gorgeous touch and the guests loved them. I showed her a picture of clear cylindrical clear vases wrapped in a gold lace - and she managed to find the exact material and made them look amazing!!!! Besides her impeccable taste in design and in picking the right flowers/colors, Lorelei was so professional and ALWAYS available. I kept changing my budget and she met with me more than once to cater to my style and price point. I cannot recommend her enough! She was the first florist I met with, and I knew I right away that I would go with her. I tried meeting with one other florist after Lorelei, and I did not get the dedication and excitement about flowers as I did with Lorelei. She dedicates her time to the wedding for that weekend, and makes sure everything goes seamlessly perfect. I did not get this feeling from the other florist I met with, who I felt was more distracted and trying to juggle too many clients at once. Lorelei was so genuine and has a true love and dedication to flowers and her clients. Her work is pure perfection! I would consider myself type A and slightly picky when it came to my wedding design, but Lorelei fulfilled all of my hopes for that day. She deserves the highest recommendation!!

Lorelei did an amazing job on all of the flowers at my wedding. Each and every arrangement looked absolutely beautiful. Not only is Lorelei talented, but she is also a genuine and kind person who truly cares about her clients. I met with her and communicated over phone and email with her on numerous occasions to adjust the floral proposal until it was perfect. She was always willing to offer suggestions and alternatives that she knew would look beautiful with our theme and that would also be more cost-effective for our overall budget. Additionally, Lorelei is very organized, and she communicated with our venues to ensure that set-up and transfer would go smoothly.
All of the flowers were exactly as I had imagined, and she really brought my vision to life. We received so many compliments on the centerpieces, and we couldn't be happier with how stunning the flowers looked. Lorelei is a true artist and such a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to design the florals at any wedding or other important event!

"We can’t thank Lorelei enough. She made our wedding day very beautiful! She was very professional in all of our dealings with her, from start to finish. She understood what we wanted and delivered beyond our expectations. The day of the wedding everything was perfect, meticulously set up to a tee. The service her and the staff provided was exceptional. We highly recommend Florals and Events by Design and we will be sure to refer all of our friends!"

"I cannot rave enough about Floral & Events by Design and their team, especially Lorelei. I was referred to her by a friend of mine who got married last year, and she could not say enough praises about Lorelei and her team. So I scheduled an appointment with Lorelei, and I was surprised that she was willing to meet me at the venue! I was put at ease immediately knowing that she was willing to go out her way to check out the venue herself, and was confident that she would be able to capture my vision, knowing she'd be familiar with the place. Lorelei is extremely knowledgeable and so passionate about what she does. She doesn't treat you like another customer, you can tell that she sincerely wants to give you everything you want and she does her best to give it! She was always prompt to respond to my emails and calls, and showed up many hours in advance to set up the ceremony flowers. The flowers were all extremely fresh, and my bridesmaid told me she was able to keep hers in a vase for almost a week after the wedding! It was absolutely breathtaking to see my vision come alive, and I am so grateful to Florals & Events by design."

"I can't thank Lorelei enough for making our wedding day so beautiful! From the planning stages she was always available for questions and understood right away the vision we had. I gave her ideas of what I liked and from there she came up with amazing suggestions. The day of the wedding everything was amazing! The service her and the staff provided was exceptional. We will be sure to refer all of our friends to Florals & Events by Design!"

Don't Miss Out!
"Lorelei was my florist back in June 2011. She was absolutely wonderful and went above and beyond my expectations. She came out to the actual wedding venue (which is far and inconvenient) on our first meeting. From before we first met until our wedding day she was always prompt with replies and professional. We left a lot of our flower choices up to her because she's so experienced, and I'm so glad I did. One of my favorite and most memorable parts of my wedding were the gorgeous flowers. My mom was also ranting about the flowers and she is a flower lover. Don't miss out on Lorelei and her team. You will NOT be disappointed!"

5 stars for Lorelei and Florals & Events by Design!
"Flowers were the splurge for my recent June wedding! What can I say, I'm sucker for lush fresh florals in any capacity. When it came time to seek out a florist to bring my vision to life, I looked no further than Florals & Events by Design.
Lorelei is kind and extremely patient. Very knowledgeable about flowers, and structuring arrangements, she guided me through the process of designing my centerpieces and also the ceremony Chuppah. She took all my ideas and concerns into consideration and ultimately created exactly what I was envisioning.
The quality of her work is of the highest level. She takes great care and pride in every design. All my flowers looked exactly the way they were promised, even with a last minute substitution for a lack of availability of part of my order. She kept me informed of everything so there were no surprises. I felt confident in her abilities and commitment to providing the best quality flowers.
I absolutely made the best and right choice in hiring her to take care of my wedding flowers. They were perfect! My wedding was gorgeous and the flowers were a huge part of the beauty. Thank you Lorelei!"
Artistic Work with Impeccable Service!
"Lorelei creates the most magnificent florals that you can't help but describe it as art. She worked with me for months on a tight budget and made sure that my vision came to life. I was uneducated about the flowers in season at the time of my wedding, and Lorelei insured that the look I was going for would be achieved with what was available. She was constantly full of ideas, inspiration, and advice.
We had an unconventional palette of peach, plum and gold and Lorelei created the most magical centerpieces of hydrangeas, peach carnations, peach juliet roses (my all-time favorite), purple succulents and purple calla lilies. They were modern, elegant and whimsical! I can't stop staring at my ranuculus and juliet rose bouquet!
After meeting at our venue, I knew when I was indecisive I could tell Lorelei to go with her artistic vision. On the wedding day in the pouring rain, she hand-delivered and set-up every item, including tying the very last peach carnation pomander to the ceremony chair. My photographer commented that she has never seen a florist give so much on the wedding day, including pinning boutonnières on all the guys.
Seeing Lorelei on my wedding day and looking around the room at her florals made me tear up with joy. I will recommend Lorelei to anyone looking to do something different and depend on a florist who will you her all!"
- Amy, Bride
"I remember my husband's reaction after first meeting Lorelei, he said "I think she's going to be expensive. She's really good." I'm happy to say he was wrong. Lorelei is great at creating a beautiful event within your budget and gave suggestions on alternatives when my vision exceeded my pocketbook. Plus, Lorelei really came through with me when my wedding plans completely changed within two weeks of the day. I highly, highly recommend Florals and Events by Design. Great job."

Amazing Florist!!!!!! Couldn't have been more pleased!
"Lorelei is an AMAZING florist!!! She helped us work within our budget and recommend similar flowers to what we liked so they would fit better into our budget but still have the look we wanted. She kept in touch with us throughout our wedding planning and even did a walk through at our event site to make sure everything was perfect & exactly what we wanted. She was on time the day of the wedding (already setting up when I arrived to get ready) and her flowers were beautiful! They were beyond my expectations, my husband and I were so pleased. All the guests were very impressed with our beautiful arrangements. My bouquet was incredible! And Lorelei brought a little water holder for my bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets so they would stay fresh until the ceremony. All the flowers we had definitely looked twice or three times as much what we actually paid for it. I would recommend Lorelei for a wedding or any special event. We plan to use her again in the future for any events we have. She does really great work!!!"
- Lesley KR, Bride
Couldn't have been more pleased!
"Lorelei was amazing to work with throughout the entire process. My husband and I interviewed 6 florists before deciding and had no doubts we made the right decision. We explained our concept to include our ideal flowers and absolute dislikes and she did not try to talk us into modifying our vision into anything else- a few vendors told us our colors were too dark. She was also extremely competitive on pricing as there were others asking 3-4 times the amount for the same arrangements. The flowers we used were orchids, lisianthus, lilac, callas, fern shoots, and these amazing Manzanita trees- small ones for our sign in and buffet tables, and tall ones decorated with candles and floating orchids for the ceremony landing which were later moved behind the sweetheart table. (Pictures on her website.) She used high quality blooms, was responsive to all our inquiries, and was punctual and professional the day of. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
I should note I’m known by family and friends to be…umm… “particular” (smile), and by profession I’m a client care director, so I am happy to recognize and praise good service when I receive it. You’d do well to have Lorelei help create a beautiful wedding day for you."
