Best bouquet EVER! Sweetest most talented florist

Reviewed on 6/01/2011 Gabriela G

If there's anything you need to do for your wedding it's hiring Semia - her work is unbelievable!!! I just had my wedding at Belle Mer in Newport and Semia's designs just took the venue to the next level. To start, she is probably one of the easiest people in the world to work... Read More with - she's the perfect balance of creative, intelligent, kind. From our first phone meeting with her I knew she was the florist for me. I had so many ideas and she just picked up exactly where I left off. She truly listened to what I did (and more importantly did not) like and made every idea come to life. She's also incredibly responsive to email which can be hard to come by. I was also really happy that she was flexible and creative when it came to working with my budget. She actually gave me 3 proposals to work from that were at different price points, then we worked from there to come up with the perfect plan. So now on to the flowers...I actually think I had the most beautiful bouquet ever created! When I say it took my breath away, I am not kidding. Then I got to the venue and almost died - she took flowers to a new level of interior design. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how gorgeous the flowers were...they couldn't have been better. So! Take the time to meet with Semia and see for yourself what an incredibly wonderful and talented person she is!!! She's the best!

Semia really deserves 10 stars, not 5. It is hard to find words to express how amazed and delighted we were by her wedding flowers. She took our vision and went beyond it. The father of the groom is a plant biologist, and he said the garland Semia installed in the church looked... Read More like it was growing there. All the small touches she added, from the delivery trays, to the beautiful ribbon, to the vases and votives, enhanced the incredibly gorgeous array of florals, herbs, and greenery. Semia is an utter genius.

Of all the wonderful parts of my wedding, the flowers by Semia were my favorite. From the moment we met, Semia and I clicked.

Not only were her floral creations the talk of the wedding, but her demeanor was professional, calm, and very receptive... it was truly a pleasure working with her. After our initial meeting, I felt confident that she was the right person for us and she consistently exceeded our expectations even pulling together a last minute change with our seating cards that became one of my favorites. I can't recommend anyone more than Semia. She was amazing. Thank you for such a beautiful wedding! - Laura

I cannot even begin to descibe how fantastic Semia was. From the first day I met her I could tell that she got my vision and knew exactly what I wanted - despite not even knowing myself!

i am not a big flower girl and didn't have a great sense of what flowers I wanted or even a general theme. But Semia TOTALLY got me. She was SO nice and warm and just from sitting down with me and seeing a few pinterest pins she had a whole vision of what would look good and I... Read More fell in love with it in a way that no other florist "got" me. She is a little pricier but TRUST ME- from someone who isn't a flower person-- it was so worth it. My bridesmaids bouquets rivaled bridal bouquets in their depth of color and fullness. Our centerpieces were absolutely magical and even her toned down cocktail table arrangements were nothing short of breathtaking. Her assistant Katie is also a pleasure to talk to and super fast at getting back to you. One of my favorite vendors

I was beyond impressed with the work that Semia did with the flowers for our wedding! My bouquet was enormous and stunning.

The MOST BEAUTIFUL arrangements I have ever seen!

I am beyond thrilled that I chose Flowers by Semia for my wedding day! Communication was always very fast and pleasant. I received a call from Semia and did a consultation over the phone (since I lived a little further from her studio). I knew nothing about flowers and just... Read More knew what colors I wanted (deep and saturated fall colors) and that I wanted them to fit in with the rustic theme. She was so friendly and obviously knew everything there was to know about her job. She was somehow able to pull together an amazing vision for our wedding with the very little input I gave her. I later received an email reviewing what we had talked about and she even attached pictures of flowers she was thinking of using. She was also very respectful of my budget and was kind enough to offer less expensive "DIY" options and made great suggestions about making items that could be used in the ceremony and then moved to the reception area. She also never pressured me into committing to the sale, and always allowed me time to consider what I wanted. During the course of wedding planning I made several changes and additions, which Flowers by Semia always accommodated. They were always positive and happy and replied very promptly with updated costs and relevant information. Since I had not given much direction, I had no idea what to expect the flowers were delivered on the wedding day. I was absolutely STUNNED by how LARGE and BEAUTIFUL the bouquets were. They were so detailed and fit perfectly with the feel of our day. I had no idea how much of a different flowers could make in our wedding. I have been to many other weddings and seen many arrangements, but these were the most beautiful I have ever seen. We also had an arbor that we had asked them to decorate for our ceremony, and when I saw it for the first time coming down the aisle, my jaw dropped. Beautiful does not even begin to described. Semia also made several small arrangements in mason jars that lined the aisle hanging on Shepard hooks. All of our guests kept asking where these amazing flowers came from and could not believe how gorgeous everything was. When the ceremony was over, Flowers by Semia took the flowers off the arbor (there was A LOT) and decorated out reception area with them. It was all done when we walked in, and it was breathtaking. This was the best investment we made in our wedding.

Best decision ever!

Ah! I cannot say enough good things about her. Semia is absolutely amazing! She has an incredibly talented and artistic eye. She caters to any style and lets you think outside the box when dreaming of ideas for your big day. WIth just a handful of inspiration pictures, she was... Read More able to design the most amazing chuppah and reception space for us. I trusted her completely to create our dream space and aside from colors and a few pictures, did not know anything about how the space would turn out. It was beyond my wildest dreams and we received so many compliments on our flowers! She is truly wonderful and aside from creating a floral wonderland, she also has great ideas about the overall aesthetic for your event space. She will create your dream wedding!

The best flowers I have ever seen

Reviewed on 10/07/2014 Laurel D

I hired Flower By Semia based on a recommendation from my wedding venue. When I met with Semia to discuss my vision and what I liked I was amazed at how well we connected on my ideas, and loved that she was so enthusiastic about my vision. I showed her some images that I liked... Read More and she was so excited about my colors and ideas. She quickly put together a quote and worked with me to get the price to a point I felt comfortable. I love flowers, but I am not a professional, so I gave her my color pallet and images of things I liked, then told her to just make the arrangements with the freshest, best flowers that were available the day she made them. Brides, HER FLOWERS WERE AMAZING!!! I have never loved wedding flowers as much as I loved the ones she put together. Her arrangements were modern, intricate, stunning, and EXACTLY what I envisioned (even though I didn't really know what they would look like, she created the perfect flowers just for me!). She was a delight to work with and flowers were, by far, my favorite part of the wedding. (Plus some of the arrangements lasted for almost 3 weeks after the wedding was over!!)

When I first met Semia, I was somewhat leery because I knew her prices were a little higher. However, within moments of sitting down at her desk, she was finishing my sentence and reading my mind with regards to the type of flowers and visuals I wanted to use. Our wedding was at... Read More the Providence Public Library and had a book theme, and she found away to incorporate flowers and books beautifully, including creating paper flowers with book text, arrangements "sprouting" from old books, and the coup de grace - an actual 7' tall arch built from vintage books! The construction of the arch itself cost $2500, which was part of the reason for our sizable price tag, but it was well worth it. Any future brides and grooms at the library will be able to rent the arch (at a lower cost) for a gorgeous addition to their ceremony. Semia was sweet and accommodating, and her crew were some of the most talented people I've ever met. I cannot recommend them enough!

Words cannot begin to express what an AMAZING job Semia and her team did on the flowers for my wedding.

I ended up spending a little more than my budget, but that decision was completely justified by the quality of the work and the service provided by Flowers by Semia.

My father and I met with Semia, and she was extremely helpful in helping me find a vision for not only the flowers, but dresses and décor for my wedding. I will be forever grateful to Semia for that. She gave me so many ideas and was so personable and professional. Her books... Read More were new, updated, and realllly impressive. Unfortunately, I inadvertently chose Mother's Day weekend for my wedding, so flowers were expensive by default (as Semia explained to us ever so gently) and we just couldn't afford her prices. I'm sure it would have been worth it if we could, but there was just no room in the budget. Nevertheless, I am really glad to have met her and would not hesitate to recommend Semia to anyone as long as they are able to spend a little bit extra on the flowers. (I did end up using a friend of a friend who was able to give us a deep discount on our flowers, but we still had to make some cut backs)
