Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most gorgeous wedding flowers and floral designs we have ever seen!
Thank you Semia for sticking by our side for two years and for meeting with us on multiple occasions in order...
to perfect the vision of classic, modern, yet timeless, and romantic white and green florals. From oceanside to inside the salon, you and your team completely exceeded any and all expectations we ever had for our wedding day flowers and design. You are hard-working beyond measure and it shows in each little detail of your work and in your flowers. I will never be over the Belle Mer Water Salon and how perfect it looked on 7-3-21. We are so grateful for your and your team!

Semia also runs her own Floral Reserve business for other florists to purchase from as well so you know she's getting the best and biggest variety of blooms for your wedding.

Semia & her team (hi Briana, Katie!) was an absolute joy. I had a broad vision of the aesthetic I wanted for my wedding, and FBS translated that into gorgeous blooms, garland, candlelight, greenery, high & low centerpieces. Their creative genius is truly indescribable. Beyond that, Semia and the entire team are very clearly so passionate about what they do. Hearing Semia talk about florals, you can't help but get excited! It seemed to me that Semia has created an amazing environment for her team to work in, which ultimately translates into a wonderful customer experience and end product in the florals.
Lastly, Semia & team helped a lot with my overall design (i.e. thoughts on glassware, linens), which was huge if you are planning your own wedding. And I found that she is very willing to work with you on adjusting things to work within your budget. Go see Semia now! I will forever have fond memories of having FBS as part of my day!

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.

So there I was, 8 months out before the big day and I was absolutely paralyzed on what I wanted the style of my wedding to be. I had too many ideas, all in different directions and no real plan. Then I met Semia. In about 35 minutes, I not only...
had a beautiful floral plan, but I had a complete design concept and a vision that was so uniquely me, it felt like Semia had known me my whole life! She is a fantastic listener, wildly creative and indredibly responsive. When I walked into my venue the day of the wedding, I was completely blown away by what Semia and her team had done (and I knew what to expect!) My guests could not stop talking about how gorgeous the flowers and tables were and I am still getting compliments a month later. I cannot say enough about Semia -- working with her was a complete joy and I will miss planning and scheming with her!!

From the time I met Semia while shopping around, I instantly felt like I had known her forever. Her friendly and relaxed demeanor was very comforting and she was just as excited to design for our wedding as we were for picking out our flowers!...
Semia and her team truly are artists in the floral department. She is very down to earth and gives wonderful suggestions to help fit your wedding vision. Romantic/simple elegant was our theme, and her arrangements which included, peonies, orchids, beautiful garden roses, freesia, etc. were soft and elegant and complimented our theme. I was in absolute awe when I saw my bouquet for the first time! It was on the large side and by far the most beautiful arrangement of bridal flowers I have ever seen! An 'over the top' statement piece was also created for our guest table to view when they walked in. Once guests were seated, our banquet planner moved it inside to the reception room for our guests to see. It was quite the spot to take pictures! I was super impressed with the quality and size of all the bridal party bouquets and I know they were very pleased to be carrying such pieces of art! I highly recommend Flowers by Semia for any event where flowers are needed! You will get more than that - you will have artwork in your hands :)

After searching for what seemed like forever, I finally decided on Flowers By Semia for my wedding in Newport this past June. Let me assure anyone who is in the market for a wedding florist, or any other florist.. Semia is the BEST! Guests have...
been raving about our centerpieces since the day of the wedding and continue to do so. Her pricing was extremely reasonable for what we were looking for, in fact she quoted us almost 50% less than another local florist, for even better products!! The flowers were fresh, beautiful, amazing, and even lived for several weeks after the wedding. Everyone was so so impressed, and Semia is a great, great vendor to work with. I recommend her without a single reservation!

The flowers were pretty and Semia was great, but we expected a little more for the price.

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 ea...
siest people in the world to work 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!

I met Semia because my mother is friends with her mother. When she began he business I remember seeing arrangements she made for funerals and special occasions. Most places just make the same old tradition arrangements, but Semia's arrangements...
that she makes with her staff are unique and one-of-a-kind. She uses flowers from all over the world to guarentee the highest quality of bloom. I got married over two weeks ago and I was looking at a table arrangement someone took home the other day and it still looks fresh new.
Semia takes her time to understand your vision and takes it and transforms it into something you couldn't even dream of.
When you decide to work with her be specific about what you want but let her give you suggestions there are flowers I have never even heard of that I am now in love with. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I hired Flowers by Semia for our wedding in Newport, R.I. in June 2009. Semia and her staff did NOT disappoint.
During our initial meeting, Semia personally reviewed our contract and all of our ideas/special requests for our ...
wedding flowers for both the ceremony and the reception. I am extremely detail-oriented, even downright finicky, and no detail was too much for Semia and her team of floral designers. The results were exquisite on our wedding day. From my custom bridal bouquet to our flower girl's kissing ball and all of the amazing corsages, centerpieces, and other arrangements, Semia truly crafted a magical atmosphere with the flowers we chose together. She was so easy to work with, available to address all of our (MANY!) questions throughout the planning process, and delivered awe-inspiring designs on our wedding day. We could not have been happier with the work Flowers by Semia gave us, and their willingness to "think outside the box" when it came to planning our special day. I just cannot recommend this vendor enough - if you want beautiful, memorable arrangements for your special day, you will be hard-pressed to find a better vendor in the Rhode Island area than Flowers by Semia.
