Holly created beautiful flowers! I cannot say enough of how beautiful they were. She listened to all of the colors I wanted and found ways to incorporte my favorite color (orange) and flowers. The flowers were so bright and full of life!! They even smelled lovely and lasted for a few days. :)

We absolutely LOVE Holly. Her eye for detail and her passion for flowers is unmatched. She really gets to know you and matches your personality for your wedding day. Our reception was stunning - flowers, candles, votives! Every time I see a photo of my bouquet, I smile!! BEAUTIFUL!

My wedding was two weeks ago and I'm still so, so happy thinking about the flower arrangements and bouquets designed and provided by Holly Chapple. Everything at the wedding was gorgeous. I received so many compliments on the chuppah, the bouquets, the flower arrangements, and even the boutonnieres! Check out her blog - http://thefullbouquetblog.com/ - to see some examples of her work.
Holly was a delight to work with. She asked a lot of good questions and spent a long time with me and my mom going through pictures of flowers to help her figure out what kind of flowers I wanted at the wedding. She's friendly, nice and takes a lot of interest in getting to know her brides. She even called me a few days before the wedding to say hello and just make sure everything was going well! She was also very attentive to sticking to our budget.

I can’t even describe how happy I am that Holly was able to do the flowers for my wedding. She was the florist for both of my sisters’ weddings, almost ten years ago now and I immediately reached out to her as soon as I got engaged – she was the only vendor I knew I had to have! Both of my sisters raved about the work she did and since then, she has become a legend around these parts. My fiancé (now husband) and I had so much fun meeting with her and discussing the vision for the flowers –looking back, we were pretty vague about what we wanted-- rustic elegant, soft pinks and purples , greens and some whites. Holly somehow got it exactly right – above and beyond what I could have imagined myself. The bouquets brought tears to my eyes when I saw them on my wedding day…. Every detail was stunningly beautiful, and completely authentic. She has this ability to create arrangements that cater specifically to you and really reflect the bride’s vision and personality. She was also great in working to fit our budget, with ideas like using the bridesmaid and bridal bouquets for the centerpieces at the reception. The flowers were simply amazing and Holly is so much fun to work with. I feel so honored that I was able to have her design our wedding flowers and she herself is so wonderful! So, so, so thrilled with how everything turned out.

I tried describing to Holly as best I could what I thought I wanted for the wedding flowers, and the day of the wedding when they all arrived they were even more incredible than I ever could have imagined!!! I couldn't believe it. I didn't realize how much I cared about the flowers for our wedding until they showed up and they completely took my breath away. Thank you, Holly!

Words don't do justice to Holly Chapple's incredible talent. From the moment I arrived at our venue I was SPEECHLESS (that never happens). The entire place was transformed into the most incredibly romantic, picturesque, elegant setting I have ever seen in my life and Holly did that with the hundreds of arrangements she created, each one unique, each one more beautiful than the next, and all of them working together to create the most spectacular setting that my mom, my husband and I (and all of our guests) have ever seen. I wish we could've captured all of the compliments our guests made throughout the evening -- everyone was so taken with Holly's designs that people were literally stroking the centerpieces! I really hope someone got that on camera. We knew Holly was great when we saw the pictures of her work on her website and it was evident from the beginning that she has an incredible gift but holy cow -- what she created for our wedding exceeded our wildest expectations! Everything was beyond perfect. I'm still trying to pick my jaw up off the ground. Holly is the best of the best!

Holly was more than I could ask for. I found her through Cara Berger our wedding planner, and I couldn't have asked for a better florist. Not only does she do amazing work, but she is caring and loving, and she makes you feel like you have been a friend of the family for years. I didn't want to spend a lot on flowers, or go overboard with them, and Holly met those requirements with stunning artistry. The flowers were breath taking (IMHO) and actually made me tear up when she brought them up to the dressing room.
You can just see in Holly how much she loves her work, and cares about her projects. In my opinion one of the greatest things a vendor can have is love for their work.
So long story short, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Holly's work and would recommend her to anyone!

I saw a creation of Holly's on her blog that made me fall in love with wedding flowers (and I never paid that much attention to flowers before). Based on that I knew I HAD to have her as my florist. She was already overbooked on my wedding weekend, but I begged and begged her to do my flowers until she gave in. I was lucky that she is such a softie! Despite having to do flowers for 7 weddings that weekend, she delivered. My flowers were truly beautiful - lush, wispy, and airy - just as I asked.
I should note that you should give Holly time to get back to you - she is perhaps the busiest floral designer in the area (and with seven children, this is a true superwoman). Once she is able to focus on you, the wait will be worthwhile. She listened to my ideas, complemented them with her own exciting ideas and wealth of knowledge about flowers, and gave spot-on advice (not just about flowers but about weddings in general, too). I find her passion for flowers and design very inspiring.
Holly is very highly demanded for good reason - she is AMAZING at what she does, and she combines that enormous talent with a generous heart. A friend of mine made a comment that summed up Holly's work very well: "Everything in your wedding was absolutely gorgeous but I think you stole your bouquet right out of my dreams! So lovely!"

After all the positive reviews I'd heard for my wedding planner about her work I knew Holly wouldn't disappoint. She was by far the most talent wedding vendor I worked with. She really goes above and beyond and knows how to give every bride exactly what that bride needs. Even though my wedding flowers were on the smaller side in terms of the caliber of weddings Holly does she still blew me away. I am still getting compliments about how gorgeous, unique and creative the flower were. If you chose Holly for your florist you will not unhappy, she works with all budgets, but will be realistic with you about what you can get for your money. Her flowers are fresh and she will not put out a bad product. I cannot say thank you enough for the beautiful bouquets she made for me and my girls. Thanks Holly!

Holly is everything I could have asked for in a florist and MORE! She has incredible style and is so artistic. After viewing her work on her blog I knew before even meeting her I wanted her as my florist. Holly knew exactly what I was going for and truly went ABOVE AND BEYOND for me. She found incredible props ie: a cast iron chalk board for a vintage country chic look and created the most charming and stunning feeling for my wedding. I trusted her taste 100% and she never let me down. Holly loves what she does more than anyone I know and you can tell the minute you meet her. She's so enthusiastic and excited about her work and it really shows. Holly is absolutely the most talented florist in the DC area and I would recommend her to anyone.

Where do I start with Holly. I began my love affair with her designs years ago while working at a local event in the Leesburg area. She had done wedding flowers for 2 of my best friends and finally it was my turn. Our first offical meeting was just to get some ideas together and give her the swatch colors of the girls dresses. She had compelte control of my flower design. I believed in her abilities as an artist to come up with something I knew I would love. My gut instinct was right. Holly Heider Chapple Flowers was by far the best investment in my wedding.

Holly Chapple and her staff are true artists! I LOVED all of the flowers for my wedding! My bouquet was sexy and elegant, just as I imagined! I really didn't know what type of flowers I wanted, but I knew the colors and Holly did a great job making my vision (or lack thereof) a reality! She is so talented and very sweet! She makes you feel like part of her family!
Holly does an amazing job and I would highly recommend her a floral designer and artist!
