My Dream Florist
Rhea is incredibly talented! I was obsessed with how the florals turned out for our wedding. Still waiting on photos from our photographer so will post those on a later date, but everyone raved about how beautiful all of the flowers were. It really made the night spectacular. I knew I wanted to incorporate orchids but gave rhea creative control and so glad I did, the overall floral design turned our better than I could have dreamed it. On top of how beautiful everything was, Rhea was a joy to work with! She was extremely flexible especially given the constant changes 2020 threw at us. She even added an entry piece to the order the week of, which ended up being one of my favorite parts as it was so gorgeous. I can not thank Rhea enough! Photosynthesis was my dream florist and she made my dreams a reality! Book her for your wedding, you will not regret it.Sent on 11/23/2020

Extremely talented floral designer
Rhea is an incredible floral designer and was able to make my daughter's wedding day very special due to the floral beauty she brought into the venue. Rhea listens to your desires and offers options to fulfill them. She is also conscious of your budget. We had a visually difficult venue to work with, but Rhea was able to bring creativity and beauty. She and her team do stunning work. The 18 table arrangements were incredibly gorgeous as well as an arch the groom had made to be used during the wedding ceremony. I could not be more pleased and Rhea is an absolute pleasure to work with. We had NUMEROUS compliments. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would.Sent on 11/25/2019

incredible floral design
I am still blown away by the incredible floral design Rhea did for our wedding! Our church venue was not the most visually appealing to start with, but Rhea and her team completely transformed it with some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. When we first met with Rhea, I didn't have much of a vision for my wedding flowers beyond the color palette. After seeing photos of her previous work, I knew I completely trusted her to do her thing and create floral arrangements we would love. The photos speak for themselves — the flowers were truly a work of art and we are still getting compliments on them! We can't thank Rhea and Photosynthesis enough for making our day so beautiful.Sent on 12/23/2019
I had the pleasure of working with Rhea briefly on a styled shoot and was honored to be a part of her art. Her florals are stunning, carefully crafted masterpieces that fully capture the raw beauty of nature married with the organization and structure of a true floral arrangement. Highly recommend her and her work!
