I am still speechless over the breathtaking floral arrangements & designs that Semia and her team created for my wedding. I can't even count how many people have told me that my flowers were the most beautiful they've ever seen. Working with Semia & her team (hi Briana,... Read More 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! The only downside is that I wish the flowers lasted forever :) <3

Semia and her team are the absolute best! There is no one else I would have trusted 100% to run with an idea of a few Pinterest Pins and completely amaze me! My mom has always raved about how talented Semia is working in the wedding industry herself, she did not disappoint! My... Read More flowers were so unbelievably STUNNING! From the entrance way, ceremony, tables, candles, fireplace mantels, all the bouquets and more I really could not get over how beautiful everything was. Besides her beautiful work she is a pleasure to work with and the absolute sweetest as well as her team. We've married a month now and my guests are still talking about my flowers!!

It is a difficult task to put into words how we feel about working with Semia. Semia is extremely passionate about what she does and her passion shines through in the amazing floral masterpieces she creates. From the beautiful floral arbor she made for us to all of the... Read More centerpieces that filled our wedding tent, Semia created what felt like another world through her amazing and intricate arrangements. Our guests are still raving about Semia's incredible work!! Semia truly captured what we envisioned and so much more!!! Not being floral experts ourselves, we did not give Semia much guidance- we only gave her a couple of thoughts that we had, but she took those few ideas and turned them into a beautiful masterpiece and captured exactly what we were going for! She is not really a florist, but more of an artist whose genuine kindness and love for nature shines through in all that she creates! Her team was a perfect extension of Semia, making every thing they touched perfect. Not having a wedding planner, it was so important that the vendors we chose were able to hold their own, and throughout the whole process, Semia and her team went above and beyond all of our expectations; they were communicative and informative and our wedding would not have been the same without them! We are forever grateful to Semia and her team for helping to make the day so special and one that we will never forget! We cannot recommend Semia and her team enough- you will not regret it!!!!

OMG where do I even start with Semia and her team? If I could give them 100 stars I would! From my first contact with Katie to meeting Semia in person - Flowers by Semia really makes you feel like your wedding is their number one priority. Semia was a dream to work with - she is...

The whole planning process with them was a dream and so, so fun! I was so excited to see my flowers on my wedding day and they did not disappoint. When Semia brought my bouquet in, I couldn't believe it was mine!! It was beyond my dreams and more than perfect. When I saw the flowers in my ceremony space and reception it got better and better. Semia went above and beyond to make my venue beautiful. To my surprise, she added little touches all through our venue that made everything look so elegant and classy! Guests raved and raved about the flowers and how amazing they were. One of my guest's first words to me after the ceremony was "who is your florist?!?!" - they were that good!! Everywhere I looked I would see something new and beautiful. Semia created beautiful garland for my farm tables that looked like it was straight out of a magazine - it was gorgeous! She provided table candlelight, fireplace decor and table numbers as well - all way beyond my expectations. Semia truly made our wedding a fairy-tale and seeing her on our wedding day was one of the highlights of my day. She was so genuinely excited and happy for us! She is more than a wedding florist - she is a true designer and artist. After the wedding my husband and I said to each other "what other event can we plan so that we can work with Semia again?!" - she's seriously that good.

SPECTACULAR! EXTRAORDINARY! All the superlatives! This short story says it all: My parents were picking up some of our centerpieces the day after our wedding.

When other florists are jealous of your flowers, you've got a truly unique florist. Semia and her crew were incredible from start to finish.

Even people who don't care about flowers were BLOWN AWAY by our arrangements. She made us the most beautiful chuppah. You wouldn't expect flowers to steal the show, but Flowers by Semia was a highlight of our wedding day.

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 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.

I hired Flower By Semia based on a recommendation from my wedding venue.

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!).

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!
