the designer + owner
Lori is no stranger to the crazy world of events. Since my senior year in high school, I knew this was the industry for her! She met Dallas florist and event planner, Betsy Baldwin, and worked under her until she graduated. During this time she also began working at a North Texas event Venue, Hidden Creek, and learned a whole other side of the industry. After graduation, she continued working with both Betsy and Hidden Creek but decided to learn even more. She then met up with another local florist and event planner, Cassey Chapman with Petals and Pearls Unique designs, and continued to gain insight into the industry. Now, FOUR years later (holy wow), Lori has decided to take all the knowledge she learned and start her own business. She has a passion for making everyone feel loved and special and wants to help those who may be financially limited to still have the day they always dreamed of. She one day hopes to turn this business into a nonprofit where she will be able to help all types of people have their dream event.
A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO WHO LORI IS:
I love my sweet husband Matthew and my precious dogs, Angel, Peanut, Ollie, and Mila. I learned to crochet but can never finish a project. I love funny TV shows and all things musical. Pink isn't just a color, it's a lifestyle. If I weren't a florist, I would like to think I would be on Broadway, a lawyer, or maybe something to do with puppies. I love the Lord, which means I love ALL people. I love pizza and Asian food. I have this dream of renovating a house, but also I rather just build one, but also you lose the character, so maybe I will do both one day! In the meantime, please tell me all about your DIY projects or passions! Family is so important, love those people, especially my mom. I am an introvert who wants to be an extrovert so bad, but all I ever want to do is get in bed and watch a movie! I want to hang out and get to know you better!
The man behind f.lori.sh

He loves people so well and is always down for a good time!
