Modern Tropical Chic Ybor City Wedding | Hotel Haya

We didn’t just need a florist but a floral designer. Jean King came highly recommended by our planner. We hired Monarch Events and Design because she absolutely nailed our vision of what we wanted our floral arrangements to look like.

From our first call with Jean, we knew she was the one. Her warm demeanor and a keen eye for design, as well as many years of experience, are some of the many reasons why we chose her as our wedding florist.

Timeless Black and White New Year’s Eve Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We knew we wanted flowers at our wedding, but we didn't know exactly what we wanted and all the little details of what a florist could provide, so we were looking for someone who was patient, could explain the process to us, and give us ideas on what we could have at our wedding while staying within our desired budget.

Monarch Events and Design was on the preferred vendor list from our venue, and we also noticed their work on Marry Me Tampa Bay and saw they had a lot of good reviews. After our first call with Jean, we knew we had to book her! She was everything (and more) that we could have asked for in a florist. She was patient, thorough, kind, and organized. She explained the entire process, talked through every little detail, gave us inspiration, and did it all by staying within our budget. She was beyond organized, and communicative, and helped us with our vision even when we didn't know what we wanted. Even with all the questions we had and changes we made along the way, she had the best attitude and handled everything with ease. Her service was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations!

The budget was extremely important as we got very differing quotes from various florists. Communication was also important as well. We wanted a florist that really understood what we wanted.

We had an awful experience with our initial florist where we paid them in full and never heard from them again. Two months before our wedding we thought we weren’t going to have florals. But thankfully we found Jean from Monarch Events and Design who was so wonderful and reassuring that she understood my vision and our insane circumstances booking her so last minute. She hands down exceeded our expectations. Our florals were one of my favorite details of the day. She did such an amazing job, and I’d recommend her over and over again. She went above and beyond what we discussed in our planning phone calls. I call her my wedding angel because she saved our wedding!

Whimsical Succulent Inspired Downtown Tampa Wedding | Rialto Theatre

We looked for a company that was easy to communicate with and offered the arrangements we were looking for at a price we felt was fair.

We were having trouble hiring a florist and we were able to find Monarch Events and Design on Marry Me Tampa Bay. They did the job perfectly. We hired Monarch after speaking with Jean. Specifically building a package that suited us, she made the process seamless. We fell in love with the custom curly willow trees she recommended and featured them prominently during the ceremony.
