Lauryl Lane was classically trained as a theatrical actor in London and Stratford-Upon-Avon before finishing her bachelor of arts degree at The University of Tulsa. She began working part-time in a flower shop during college and quickly discovered her passion for flowers. She trained in floral design while continuing her theatre studies, and upon graduation, moved to pursue a career in Los Angeles. Within months of arriving in Hollywood she found herself chatting with George Clooney while designing a centerpiece that would sit in front of him at luncheon... and she never looked back. After years of working for some of the most storied floral and event designers in the industry and managing a high-end floral and landscape design studio in West Hollywood, Lauryl decided to strike out on her own in late 2007.
A designer and producer of full-scale events, Lauryl planned, designed and floralized the Los Angeles nuptials of pop star Eden xo and urban artist Ryan Wilson. Her floral designs have graced the homes of Hollywood icons as diverse as Elizabeth Taylor, Denzel Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Baz Luhrmann and Rachel Zoe. As an editorial stylist, Lauryl coined the term "botanical stylist" to describe the heavy botanical influence she brings to set decorating and prop styling for still photography and film.
She has designed for publications such as In Style, Lucky and Elle magazines, and her wedding work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Cosmo Bride, The Knot, Brides, Glamour, Ceremony, California Wedding Day and Grace Ormond Wedding Style, among many others.
Lauryl's styling and florals have represented non-profit organizations such as The Pasadena Playhouse and The Weingart Center, corporate powerhouses such as Direct TV, and global luxury brands such as Stuart Weitzman, Calvin Klein and Porsche.
Lauryl is passionate about floral education, particularly green design techniques (#nofloralfoam) and is a gifted public speaker and instructor. She is often booked to speak at wedding and event conferences and other platforms. She also teaches a range of workshops focused on floral design and tabletop styling (see shop), and has entertained floral students from around the globe.
The magic Lauryl creates for weddings and occasions has led to clients retaining her services not only on the west coast, but across the country in places such as Maui, Aspen, Austin and New York City.
Lauryl works from home and on location and resides in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles, with her partner and five-year old identical twins .
