Chapel Designers


Brides and grooms visiting WeddingFlowerLove.com can now see instantly who is a part of the premier florist designer group for wedding and events, The Chapel Designers, lead by Holly Chapple! More about the group from Holly’s website:

The Chapel Designers group is another miracle in Holly’s life and one of her favorite “babies.” As Holly was one of the first in her field to utilize social media as a part of her marketing strategy, she had the opportunity to develop close relationships with floral designers worldwide. These designers began to regularly seek out her advice, guidance and moral support. Based on Holly’s ability to deal with a really big family, nurturing and supporting these designers was a natural love for her. It was very clear to Holly that a network of like-minded floral industry professionals needed to be started earning her the name “Flower Mamma.”

Annually, The Chapel Designers gather in NYC to tour the flower markets, have creative & business workshops, and most importantly to collaborate and share new inspiration with each other. These relationships have become invaluable to each of the Chapel Designers as both strong industry relationships and close friendships have been born. Throughout the year the group stays connected through a forum that is built to support one another and the group has also committed to a new standard of excellence when it comes to expanding our horizons, and setting industry standards in wedding and event design.

Seeing the Chapel Designers badge on a florists profile is an instant badge of approval for that florist — you know you’re going to get amazing quality and workmanship.
