ABOUT


Loreta Daka Floral Boutique is a floral studio based in Connecticut; serving Connecticut, New York and Coastal New England.


MY MISSION

I focus exclusively on weddings and events and the occasional shower or birthday party. Most days you can find me foraging for flowers, maneuvering through markets or knee deep in my garden curating my own product.

Whether your wedding is big or small; I enjoy designing for them all! My job is not complete until I see the first happy tears from the bride and I love to be apart of special moments in time.


DID YOU KNOW?

I avoid products that contain harsh chemicals and dyes. Instead, I use natural products that are friendly to our environment. My suppliers are located worldwide and I support growers and artisans alike. Swing by the 'Service' page to learn more about what Loreta Daka Floral Boutique has to offer!

THE FACE BEHIND THE FLOWERS

meet loreta

I fell in love with flowers at a young age. Growing up in Croatia, I would explore the meadows with Mother, run through Father's garden, and marvel over creation. I picked grass, wheat, persimmon and figs off the tree and there was nothing I loved more than to gaze at the blossoms that grew on the mountainsides overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

I found my passion . . . 

Croatia is where I became familiar with nature. My father taught me how to garden. Everything that he touched; bloomed. I was drawn to all the little things that grew.

CONTINUED . . .

years later

I acquired the floral industry tricks of the trade while scrubbing buckets in a floral shop. I learned how to cut, treat, cultivate, condition, and preserve flowers. I was given the opportunity to manage a floral department, while raising two small children and attending business school.

After college, I worked for several designers in the city. A former client asked me to flower her wedding and the rest is history! In 2016, my business bloomed. Today, I continue to chase my dreams all the while making your floral dreams come true!

Love,
