About Us

WildFlora, born in 2014 as a florist/landscape design combo shop, has now evolved into two different businesses!

However, we are both still on a mission to bring forth geographically & environmentally inspired solutions, products, & cutting-edge designs that are ecologically responsible while being convenient and fresh.

We offer floral designs, plants, terrariums, and environmentally friendly products, all which keep the ecosystem in mind.

Team

Antionette wildflora

Antoinette Hernandez Shop Lead + Floral Designer

Like a skipping stone, Antoinette spent her younger years bouncing around the state of California. Through it all, she developed a love for photography, hiking and all things nature, as is evident by her gorgeous floral tattoo sleeve. Her love for nature doesn't stop there, however. She incorporates eco-friendly practices in all she does, though she promised us, as a vegetarian, that she won't eat the plants in the shop. As a young girl, there was a florist on her way to school, but when she was finally old enough to work, the shop closed, so she's finally fulfilling her childhood dream by joining the WildFlora family. Speaking of family, she has many fur babies: four cats - Kiki, Lily, Bear, & Olivia - and three dogs - Mallory, Mamas, & Nova.

Ariel Lofaro Floral Designer

Ariel, our in-house spiritual gangster & psychic, was born and raised in Long Island, New York. She switched up coasts a couple years back to pursue directing in Los Angeles, and always hoped to work in a floral shop when she retired...but the universe answered that request waaay sooner than she anticipated. Ariel can be found bouncing around the shop, making up songs about any and everything - basically what it would be like is Jess and Schmidt from New Girl had a baby. When she's not jamming here, she enjoys listening to music and the beach, or basking in the sun in general.

Bailey is our Wisconsin-grown, West Coast livin' Minnesotan at heart, who loves black coffee, tiny embroidery, music, and art of all sorts. After earning a degree in Design/Art/Mass Communication, she realized her passion for plants and flowers and decided to use her design training in a new way as a floral designer. She and her best friend Kevyn (a teeny pug/chihuahua mix pup) are recent transplants to LA, and when they’re not out exploring nature together, Bailey can likely be found helping to build a large-scale art installations, picking dead leaves off any houseplants in the vicinity, or renovating her 1979 camper van.

Grace Sugg Floral Designer

Grace is actually yet another Alex, but she's gleefully agreed to rock her middle name to avoid confusion. Like the famed raisins of the 80's, Grace is California-grown, coming to us from the desert in the Antelope Valley. In an effective effort to avoid snow, she moved to Los Angeles, where she is now a Creative Writing student at CSUN. She loves books, as the creative writers are wont to do. She was once asked the question, "If you could be on any game show, which would you choose!?" "Uhm, the Price is Right, I guess...?" was her answer.

Hayley Whitlow Floral Designer

Hayley, our East Coast cactus-lover, moved to L.A. 4 years ago, with her now-fiancé, to pursue her love of event-planning. She dabbled in many areas of the festivity world before finding herself at Wildflora, where she gets to blend all the things she loves most: plants, flowers, styling, and photography. This bubbly blondie can always be found singing around the shop and cracking jokes. When she’s not working, Hayley, her fiancé, and her pup love to explore great outdoors, discover new ramen places, and binge-watch any and all competition shows.  

Jack Hughes Shop Worker + Delivery Driver

Jack was born and raised by wolves in Minnesota. He enjoys music, sharks, and sunset cruises on his skateboard around Valley Village while jamming to none other than Barry White. Between writing music and hanging out at Zuma Beach, he finds time to cook for his beautiful girlfriend, Angela (and though  it is unconfirmed, rumor has it that he wears a "Kiss the Cook" apron). Jack believes the most important things in life are love, respect, and treating strangers like old friends.

We’ve got the Funk! Julia has lived in about every corner of the United States, but she comes from the “Soybean Capital of the World” in Central Illinois. After going to film school at Emerson College in Boston, she ventured out west with the goal of being closer to nature, creating more, and working with her hands. In her spare time, Julia writes funny screenplays, hikes/forages for wildflowers, practices yoga, and watches anything and everything Larry David. Ask her what she’s growing in her garden plot!

Kristine Bernabe Shop Lead + Floral Designer

Kristine is our California Native, former desk-job, 9-5er turned full-time floral designer. After graduating from LMU with a degree in Business Marketing, she worked in the industry for years, but finally decided to go against the grain and quit her desk job to pursue her love and passion for flowers! A first-generation Filipina with an innate knack for all things creative, Kristine joined the Wildflora family with full steam ahead to be able to play with flowers every day, and she hasn’t looked back. On days when she’s not in the shop, she enjoys finding new plant babies, traveling — with itinerary planning down to a science (her favorites so far are Spain and the Philippines), binge watching Netflix with her pup, Huxley, and rollerskating into the sunset.  

Nicole Coco Amador wildflora business manager

Nicole "Coco" Amador Business Manager

Nicole "Coco" Amador is our master organizer, coming to us all the way from Redondo Beach.  Though she rocks out on the admin side of things, her love of nature makes her a great addition for Wildflora. It should be noted that she owns three sleeping bags (rated for different temperatures), and multiple "ready-to-go" camping boxes, allowing her to be launched into nature at a moment's notice. She comes with an eclectic past, multiple roles at Lemonade Restaurant from Cashier on up to Project Manager, Au Pair'ing in Australia, and professional scooter-riding in Bali. 

ravel ward wildflora employee driver

Ravel Ward Shop Worker + Delivery Driver

Ravel, a Minneapolis, Minnesota native, was living in New York City when he decided to make the big move to Los Angeles to expand himself (but also to escape the cold - those winters are no joke). In the last year he's been getting more and more into plants, decorating his place with green scenery and expanding his plant knowledge. Therefore, joining the WildFlora team was the logical next step! In additional to having a green thumb, Ravel enjoys watching good films, listening to good music, learning new skills, and spending quality time in nature whenever he gets the chance.

Sarah was born and raised on the island paradise that is Oahu, Hawaii and moved to California with her family when she was 16 years old. After receiving her bachelor's degree in photography, she became a wedding photographer and found her passion -  traveling to all sorts of places photographing couples on one of their happiest days! Despite growing up on an island, Sarah loves cloudy skies, rainy days, sweaters, and fall candles. When she’s not snapping pics for weddings or WildFlora, you will find Sarah on the couch editing with her fav editing buddy, Koda the black cat, and watching lots and lots of trash TV.
