Hello There!

A bit about me…

Hello, I'm Laura, the owner and floral designer of LWF.  I come from a long line of gardeners! My grandfather owned and operated a large rose and flower farm in Havana, Cuba called Floreria Alcazar. In 1970, my family moved from Cuba to Cleveland, Ohio when I was six.

Many years later, I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan where I met my wonderful husband Peter. Together, we've raised five amazing kids. During those years, I discovered a passion for growing and arranging flowers. I have worked on many weddings and countless arrangements since then. I've been a Michigan State (MSU) Master Gardener for almost 25 years and have received formal floral design training as well. I am proud to be a listed floral designer on the floretflowers.com florist collective.

Approach & Style to our Designs…

I am passionate about flowers and making your day beautiful. I put my heart into every arrangement that is created. My garden style design is relaxed and full. I believe that the genuine beauty of a flower shows forth in the height of its season. LWF floral arrangements work to highlight the flowers and colors of the season that your celebration is in. I source only the freshest flowers. My garden style work springs organically from what is in season and available in my own large garden or my local sources.


I am proud to use sustainable practices in all my work. I strive to not use ecologically harmful floral foam products but instead focus on reusable and recyclable mechanics in our floral arrangements.
