Wedding January 4th, 2020 by Mary M
Our wedding would not be what it was without Lori and her team at Cress Floral Decorators. From the very first call, Lori was professional, insightful, patient, and incredibly kind. I had a vision of what I wanted and she was able to hear it over the phone and bring it to life. I only had to meet with Lori one time in person, which was really helpful since I was planning the wedding from another state. At our in-person meeting she created the exact arrangement and bouquet we had discussed on the phone. I felt so at ease leaving the meeting that day knowing that I did not have to worry about our floral decorations, because I knew they would be perfect. On the day of the wedding, Lori hand delivered my bouquet and my bridesmaids’ bouquets to our apartment. She then HAND delivered my groom’s boutonniere all the way uptown. She came to our venue for the ceremony to check on the decorations and make sure everything was running smoothly. I’m not sure how she was able to be everywhere at once, but I was so thankful that she was! Since the wedding, we have heard nothing but especially positive feedback from our guests about the decor. I really cannot say anything other than THANK YOU to Lori and her team for making my day exponentially more beautiful. You are the best of the best!!!!!

Cress Floral Decorators were amazing and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome of my wedding day florals and theme. They brought my vision to life and worked with me through it all!!! I work in PR and plan a ton of fashion/beauty events throughout the year, so selecting a company to plan MY special day was a big deal for me! I highly recommend having Lori and Tommy plan your big day or major event! It was worth it!

Lori and her team were amazing to work with. Like an anxious bride, I met with Lori a year before our wedding and stayed in close contact throughout the year. She made our vision come to life and it felt like such a personal experience. We loved using a local mom and pop florist that gave us all the attention to detail we wanted. They are amazing!

Working with Lori and her team for our wedding at the Boathouse in Central Park was an absolute pleasure! I did have an idea of what I was looking for, but Lori brought my idea to life in the most beautiful and elegant way. We met with her after emailing pictures of what I was looking for and she created sample centerpieces that were magnificent. This was so helpful so you could see in real life how everything was going to look. My bouquet was by far the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. When Lori showed up at my hotel with my bouquet and my bridesmaid’s bouquet I was in shock how amazing they looked. When I saw the Boathouse decorated later in the day I was blown away. The combination of high and low centerpieces with high tapered candles and lows in mercury glass gave the room such a romantic and warm feel. Just the ambiance I wanted for our Central Park wedding! Finding vendors and trusting vendors with your big day is extremely stressful. With Lori I always felt like I was being taken care of and that she was going to come through with my vision. And did she ever! I can say through my experience with Lori that you are in good hands. Trust her! And book her!! Absolutely fabulous flowers!!

Honestly, Cress Floral made my wedding! Lori is incredible to work with, along with her husband Tom. They are visionaries and incredibly kind and accommodating. From the centerpieces, to the card table display, to my bouquet and the little personal touches all over the venue– the flowers were absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my vision. Countless guests commented on the beauty of the arrangements and the fresh, vibrant flowers. I was so happy with Lori and her team’s work on the day. I can’t thank them enough. I highly, highly recommend working with Cress Floral!!

By the end of the process working with Lori, she felt like family. She took the time to listen and discuss pricing amongst different flowers and helped us bring our ideas to life. We had a color palette and idea to use gorgeous Japanese temari that my husband’s mother was making for the centerpieces and Lori created gorgeous and very unique centerpieces with. The attention to detail is wonderful, the combination of candles, flowers, especially the two STUNNING arrangements on either side of us for the ceremony created exactly the right feeling and ambiance we had imagined. Cress is extremely easy and pleasant to work with, affordable, and 100% incredible! Thank you Lori!
