Inventive, unique, and beautiful flower arrangements
Photosynthesis knocked it out of the park at our wedding last weekend! They took our loose vision and ran with it. The arrangements were beautiful, unique, natural, and totally in line with the feel of our wedding. They also designed and executed a gorgeous hanging installation with greenery and lit candles, which set the mood for our dance floor. We couldn't have been more pleased!Sent on 09/13/2019

Dream wedding florist!
I absolutely loved working with Rhea and selecting Photosynthesis as my wedding florist was one of my best wedding decisions! She is beyond professional and made the entire process seamless. My mom and I sat in Rhea's studio for hours dreaming up our wedding vision and Rhea was integral in making everything come to life. Her input took our vision to the next level, she would even make suggestions on alternatives to cheaper options. The insulation piece was a centerpiece of the entire wedding and our bouquets were stunning. Rhea is an excellent communicator, professional in every interaction and is creative genius. Beyond happy with how everything turned out and she is officially our go to florist!!Sent on 07/11/2019

The only florist I ever want in my life.
Rhea and the ladies at Photosynthesis are literal dream makers, if you can book them it's a must. No one understood my vision for my wedding as instantly and as fully as Rhea. She took great care to ask questions, send visuals, and communicate back and forth to create the full vision that was in my head. I was never a florals person, but what they created was art. My vision was the natural garden surroundings overtaking the manmade items, with moss and greenery coming to life, and what she did exceeded all of my expectations. To this day my guests (and most importantly my Mother!) swoon about the installation pieces and my bouquet. They were incredibly professional, attentive, communicative, and remarkably affordable for the quality of work. Hire these artists and sleep easy. Thank you for making my dreams come true, Ladies!Sent on 01/09/2019
Photosynthesis Floral Design's reply:Thank you Lauren! You are so sweet! We LOVED working with you to bring your flower vision to life. xoxo
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!
