No words can express my love and gratitude
Kristin is one of the nicest, most beautiful human beings I’ve ever met. I’ve been going through a difficult family matter and ended up throwing a wedding together in less than 3 months. With how last minute it was, it was a miracle that Kristin was available for my big day. She did my sister‘s wedding a couple years ago and I knew I needed to have her as my florist. She was so kind and sensitive towards our family situation and agreed to do our wedding.
What was supposed to be “simple centerpieces” in my head looked so elegant when she brought them to life the day of. She ended up having trouble lighting the candles because of the wind and stopped by her house (which was thankfully nearby!) and got her battery candles to replace the real candles. The “venue” (my dad’s unfinished property) ended up only having murky well water, which I didn’t even consider she may need access to water, so she went across the street to the gas station to buy jugs of water to fill the centerpieces.
I didn’t take any pictures of the centerpieces, I wish I had. BUT - I do have about a million with my bouquet! Which I seriously cried after she delivered it to me. I was blown away by its beauty.
Kristin went absolutely above and beyond my expectations and I can never thank her enough for helping make my wedding SO amazing.
Thank you Kristin, this review doesn’t even begin to express how grateful I am that you were apart of our wedding day. ❤️

I am blown away with how gorgeous the flowers were for my wedding. I keep looking at my bouquet and am in shock. The bridesmaid bouquets were soooo amazing as well. Kristin is phenomenal. I will recommend A Happily Ever After Floral in the future.

Five star experience
Thank you Kristin, for the gorgeous flower arrangements you created for my daughter's wedding. The table decorations were simple elegance - exactly what she wanted, bridesmaids bouquets were beautiful, and the bridal bouquet was stunning. We could not have had a better "floral" experience and you were a joy to work with! I appreciate how patient and understanding you were when my daughter changed her mind about colors and flowers. So glad we found you and I highly recommend Happily Ever After Floral! I will be calling you soon for the 2019 wedding we are now planning!
Denise, grateful mother of the bride

beautiful flowers plus caring and professional
If you are looking for the most wonderful florist for a wedding in the Jacksonville area, Kristen, the owner of A Happily Ever After Floral, is the florist for you. From the first time I called Kristen, she made me feel comfortable and at ease with all of my questions—and from that first conversation on, she always answered my calls. She was professional, kind, caring, and listened to every detail—actually writing them down in her notebook.
When my Daughter-in-Law and I met with Kristen to finalize everything, we shared pictures and ideas, and she assured us that everything would be perfect—and it was. We were looking for a theme using succulents, and Kristen made this dream a reality, with succulent-based bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, groomsmen’s boutonnieres, and the reception favors at each place-setting. Not only was she skilled, with great service, but she helped make our budget work—as an example, the greenery for the bridal-arch was repurposed for the reception.
You can tell that Kristen loves what she does, and she does it so well. On the wedding day, she was there personally delivering the bridal bouquets, the table favors, and pinning the succulent boutonnieres on the groomsmen, telling each of them about the rules for succulents so they would make it to the photos (they made it). This personal touch helped make that pinning a special time for us, the parents of the groom.
If you are in the Jacksonville area and in need of a florist who has the rare combination of skill and caring, contact Kristen at A Happily Ever After Floral.

Kristin with A Happily Ever After Floral is amazing. Not only are the florals gorgeous but her and her team are professional and joy to work with.
Sarah · Married on 03/16/2018
Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish! Kristin is wonderful to work with, and perfect doesn't even begin to describes the flowers she arranged for me. Any thought I had in my mind about how great they would be, she surpassed that. Highly highly highly recommended. She not only did the flowers for my spring wedding, she also did the flowers for my sister's fall wedding. Couldn't say enough great things about this company!
Kelsey · Married on 03/03/2018
Kristin's flowers were absolutely stunning, she did our bouquets, boutonnieres, center pieces, isle pieces, floral piece over the four-post pergola, and some greenery over our chandelier. You kind of forget what you ask for 6 months prior to what you get so I was excited to see the surprise! Right when she walked it - I was blown away! She puts an incredible amount of effort into every detail and really listens to what the bride wants. She was also quick to respond and even stayed after the ceremony to help my wedding planners repurpose all of the flowers in the reception area that were used for the ceremony. Below are some pictures, although I don't have too many professional ones back yet - I will add them when I get the rest! I would highly recommend Happily Ever After Floral!!

If you are looking for a florist for your wedding look no further. Kristin is a professional at what she does & it shows in her work. She listened to vision & didn’t try to change a think. I loved everything the bouquets, cocktail flowers & reception flowers. Thank you so much for making our day so beautiful!!!
Tessa · Married on 11/26/2017
Kristin is so sweet and so unbelievably talented. She was so accommodating and listened to everything little thing we wanted, even when we changed our minds multiple times. No detail or decision was made without running it by us first. My centerpieces were so much bigger than I thought they’d be (that’s a good thing), my bouquet was more than anything I could’ve dreamed of. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to have her do my wedding.
Mary · Married on 11/11/2017
Yes, Yes, Yes, I absolutely recommend A Happily Ever After Floral! Kristin took my daughter's ideas and budget and created a magically, beautiful design for her wedding. Everyone raved about the flowers including venue employees who were wowed by their beauty. Because I'm a very visual person, Kristin created a mock-up at the venue so I could see what the flowers would look like in the reception space, what a brilliant idea!!! I will definitely use Kristin again and confidently recommend her for anyone looking for floral design!Sent on 12/11/2017

Kristin was so friendly and helpful. The flowers for our daughter’s wedding were so beautiful. She went above and beyond and made this occasion so special. I would highly recommend her.
Luanne · Married on 09/16/2017
Working with Kristin at A Happily Ever After Floral was a dream come true! She helped us choose the perfect flowers for my daughter's wedding. The colors were absolutely incredible and the bouquets and arrangements were even more beautiful than we had imagined. Our wedding took place just 6 days after Hurricane Irma and miraculously Kristin pulled it all together without a single problem. She was truly amazing!

Kristen at a Happily Ever After Floral was so much apart of our wedding planning we tried to invite her to stay! We were so nervous about picking a florist having heard the horror stories of flowers not as requested or cost significantly changing near the wedding day. When we met Kristen and described to her what we think we wanted she was so patient and listened to every random thought. She provide the best suggestions and ideas that an otherwise stressful event turned into something fun and exciting for us. We were able to establish a reasonable budget and a include a variety of flowers that worked with our cranberry and orange themed wedding. We married on June 4th at The Lodge and Club in Ponte Vedra. The flowers we so incredible we almost had to raffle them off to family and friends who wanted to take them home. We simply can't say enough nice things about this company and their ability to deliver as promised.
Cole · Married on 05/28/2017
We can't thank Kristin enough for everything she did on our wedding day. My wife had a specific vision for how she wanted the centerpieces to look and Kristin made them a reality. During our shortened cocktail hour, she was able to repurpose our ceremony flowers, bridesmaid bouquets, and aisle decor as part of the reception. We even had guests compliment her hard work and talent. She really went above and beyond for us, and we highly recommend her services to anyone.
Anais · Married on 04/27/2017
Kristen is awesome!! Boy she had some patience with me! Lol she did such an awesome job and my centerpieces were gorgeous !!! From the floral centerpieces to the bouquets to the lanterns, she outdid herself and everything was perfect!! I recommend her a million times! I felt like I was in a fairy tale! Thank you so much Kristen for making these details for us so special!
Brittney · Married on 01/07/2017
Kristen was amazing to talk to and to help us discover the flowers that went with the theme of our wedding. She is extremely knowledgeable in wedding decor and all things floral. We had about 135 guests at our wedding and at least 30 of them asked who the florist was. It was stunning and surpassed our expectations.
Jaime · Married on 11/25/2016
I am clueless about floral arrangements, but Kristin eased my worries and knew exactly how to create an arrangement that blew me away at my wedding. She really knows her flowers and how to piece them together. I could not have been happier.
Caitlin · Married on 11/19/2016
So great!!!! Kristin is such a gem and she did such a beautiful job on our flowers for our ceremony! I would recommend her a million times over! She is so sweet and she tried to make things so convenient for us. She took my ideas and added on with some of her own, she is very knowledgeable.
Winnie · Married on 11/12/2016
Kristin is PHENOMENAL! She is such a sweetheart to work with, and very talented. I am not creative at all, so when it was time to come up with floral arrangements for my wedding, I was lost! I looked on Pinterest for ideas for my bouquet and for boutonnieres, but still had no idea what to ask for in terms of other arrangements. My husband and I met with Kristin and talked with her about our vision for the wedding, as well as how many arrangements we needed, but we relied on Kristin's expertise to create the final work. Oh. My. Gosh. They were absolutely STUNNING! In addition to the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres, and centerpieces, Kristin arranged two beautiful outdoor arrangements and an amazing decoration for our cake. Her arrangements were the perfect touch to our wedding. My husband and I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a florist for their special day.

A florist was one of the last vendors that I booked and I was so nervous about how my flowers would turn out. I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to get across the look that I wanted and the feel of the flowers. It was especially hard because you really don't know how the flowers are going to turn out since you won't see them until the day of. Let me tell you, Kristin at A Happily Ever After Floral knocked it out of the park. She got EXACTLY what I was envisioning in my head and really made my wedding dream come to life with her arrangements. I was so incredibly happy and just bursting with joy when I saw our bouquets because they were PERFECT as were all our centerpieces and other arrangements. I don't know how she was able to see inside my head because I know I wasn't explaining it well and I was very anxious about it all... she must just be that good at her job :) The flowers were honestly my favorite part of the wedding because they were just so gorgeous. Kristin - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!Sent on 11/02/2016

Ana · Married on 10/15/2016
where do I begin? after almost a year of planning I had one last final vendor to book. The flowers! I was getting super stressed and tired towards the end of planning and starting looking around and getting quotes from different florist in the area. I was even considering getting the flowers from a wholesale store and having a few friends assemble the arrangements the night before. Glad I dodged that bullet. I met with Kristen one morning before work for our first meeting. I brought pictures and gave her my vision. Even though our meeting was awesome, I still had to continue looking for the sake of giving myself options. Even when I mentioned we were still looking, her responses were so professional and made me feel comfortable.Sent on 10/25/2016
She not only delivered exactly what she promised. It was more than I could have ever dreamed. She worked with my mother once we decided to book and accommodated to every request she had while still giving her expert advice. I wanted to cry when I saw my bouquet. My mother said she would choose Kristen at A Happily Ever After Floral all over again if she could.
When I got back form the honeymoon a few days ago I stopped by my parents house to see the huge floral arrangement's made it through the week. I sat down next to them and was able to name every single flower and plant. That is how well educated she is. Thank you Kristen. You floored us! We love you.

Kristin Hendrix with A Happily Ever After Floral was absolutely phenomenal... she was friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. What impressed us most were the few special requests we had and how she went above and beyond to ensure our wedding flowers were exactly what we envisioned with the special touches we wanted. We could not be happier with the service she provided... she truly helped make our wedding perfect!
Meaghan · Married on 06/11/2016
I had the time of my life working with Kristin on my wedding! She was AMAZING in every aspect of the word. I must have changed my order 2 or 3 times before finally deciding on the look I wanted for my flowers and reception, and she was absolutely so patient with me.Sent on 06/21/2016
I don't know a lot about different flowers so when it came time to picking them out with Kristin, I was incredibly overwhelmed and confused. Kristin took so much time working with me. The greatest decision I made? When it got down to it, I finally told her to 'put together whatever she thought was best with my colors.' When I got my bouquets, I cried. They were absolutely stunning.
I was worried since I was so lax in making decisions as to how the reception would be decorated that it wouldn't turn out the way I envisioned in my head. But, when I walked in there to sneak a peak at it before the ceremony, it was the most beautiful room I had ever been in. I was so amazed at Kristin's work, and I am so glad I gave her such freedom in decorating the ballroom. I was complimented on my flowers all evening, and people asked if they could take some home. I would recommend her over and over again- great to work with and a true artist in her field!
