It's so nice to meet you!
Lori Wright | Shop Owner
Before there was "The Flower Shop," there was Wright's Family Market – a local, family-owned grocery store here in Norman, Oklahoma. Lori, along with her husband, Larry, has been with Wright's from the very beginning, and she ran the floral department for 17 years. Now, Lori owns and operates The Flower Shop with the same love and enthusiasm as always. Her signature arrangements are low and lush, garden gathered, and in soft, monochromatic colors. When she's not at Market procuring unique and local items for the shop, Lolli (as her seven grandkids call her) can be found engaged in awesome adventures with her extended family and friends. The Wrights have been an amazing duo for 40 years and their joyfully generous spirits keep every customer feeling valued and appreciated.

Monica Owen | Designer
Monica has been with The Flower Shop for five years and it is the perfect job for her creative soul. Her signature arrangements are often wild, loose and loaded with a myriad of flowers and colors. Monica is an artist, and you can usually find some of her original paintings, stationery and other projects in the shop. One of her favorite special orders to fill is matching floral arrangements to featured artworks for the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. Monica has two sons – Jayson (21) and Joel (16) – and lives in OKC with her husband, Topher, and two cats, Izzy and Mr. Man.
Kate Bernard | Designer
Kate started at The Flower Shop just over a year ago and has been a plant and flower fanatic ever since! Her favorite arrangements are simple, monochromatic and asymmetrical, and she thinks nothing is more stunning than a vase full of tulips. Both inside and outside the shop, you can find Kate behind her camera and editing photos for her photography business. When she's not working, this Texas native enjoys traveling with her husband, Drew; cozying up on the couch with her pup, Millie Beau; and game nights with friends.
Jordan Barton | Designer
Jordan has been at The Flower Shop for a year and has loved getting to explore the world of flowers and events. Jordan’s favorite arrangements are lush, soft in color and play with different textures. She especially enjoys using big blooms that are unique, or learning about a new flower for the very first time. Jordan loves helping people celebrate by creating something meaningful and beautiful for them to enjoy. Outside of the shop, she loves to bake, enjoys movies and finding new places to eat with her husband, Matt, and is always ready for a trip to the beach.
