Holly Heider Chapple Flowers started in 1990 as a boutique flower shop focused on quality and beautiful design. What began as an idea for me out of my love for flowers has blossomed into an incredible business that now offers floral training, a national organization for floral and event collaboration and daily inspiration for couples getting married. Our hope is to always leave you inspired. Our specialty first and foremost is weddings. We are proud to offer our couples full design services from start to finish. We also offer event styling, planning services, lighting and pipe and drape and décor production. With over 20 years of wedding industry experience, our focus is centered around creating one of a kind events and providing our couples with top notch service infused with creativity and reliability. We like to say we “gather” the pieces and we “style” them to capture the vision; ensuring that each of our couples has a truly unique look for their special day.
