Vibrant Turquoise and Coral Central Florida Wedding | Streamsong Resort

I wanted someone with the experience and talent to make our vision come to life. I have known and worked with Jean King at Monarch Events & Design for 20 years and have seen her consistently create the most beautiful weddings.

Jean's superpower is getting inside the head of a bride to see her vision, and then she runs with it, taking it to a whole new level. Her service is impeccable, and she will do whatever it takes to make her couples happy.

Classic White, Blue, and Gold South Tampa Wedding | The Orlo

I wanted someone who could listen to my vision of greenery, white, with spots of blue, and then could list off the perfect flowers.

Monarch Events and Designs were spot on and immediately captured the vision I was saying I wanted as we had our first meeting. They were able to work with our budget and offer similar ideas to what we originally asked for in order to keep our order reasonable. I cannot thank them enough for how beautiful they made the day.

We were looking for a florist that was flexible, talented, understanding of budget, and who wanted to bring my vision to life.

Jean King, owner, and florist at Monarch Events And Design was amazing! She is so kind and understanding and does beautiful work! From start to finish, she was so easy to work with, and I felt so comfortable/confident knowing she was going to take care of everything. Our florals were exactly as I envisioned and more!

Bride and Groom Vow Reading | Beach Wedding Ceremony Inspiration | Round Vine Arch Ideas | White Chrysanthemum, Rose, Ruscus, Eucalyptus Greenery Ideas | Treasure Island Florist Monarch Events and Design

Rustic-Beach-Inspired Beachfront Treasure Island Wedding

I envisioned something simple and not too over the top. I had the initial call with Jean at Monarch Events and Design, and I knew that she was my girl. She went above and beyond for us, and I couldn't have had anyone better. She even built our circular arch for us by hand and ordered rustic wooden table numbers.

String Lights Over Dance Floor | Sarasota Wedding Rental Gabro Event Services | Floral Greenery Chandelier Monarch Events and Design

Elegant Waterfront Fall Sarasota Wedding | Powel Crosley Estate

We made sure that where we were using flowers, it was really purposeful. We only got one bouquet and boutonniere, then used bud vases for the cocktail and reception tables. We also stayed pretty minimalist with the decorations on the chuppah and chose to only use greenery at the ceremony. Joey's corsage was an orchid, as that was a meaningful flower for his mom, that is no longer with us.

Our big flower item was the floral chandelier over the patio. Since this was the center of the venue, we felt it was okay to spend a bit more to make it an exciting feature, and it turned out gorgeous with lots of greenery, flowers, and twinkle lights.

Flowers can get expensive really quickly, and we felt like Monarch Events And Design really understood our vision and could do it all at a really reasonable price. Jean's work was gorgeous, and we were so happy with the chandelier, bouquet, and all of the decor.
