Over the weekend, I attended my FAVORITE event in Leesburg—the flower and garden festival! I get so excited when this time of year comes around and I've been attending every year since I can remember. I knew I had one booth in mind that I wanted to visit that was there last year, but I couldn't for the life of me think of the name. I remember the tent was filled with gorgeous fresh cut flowers and they were giving out beautiful bouquets that they were making right then and there. Amazing right?
When I finally found the booth, I realized that I have met them before (and not just at the F&GF). This was THE Holly Chapple that did the flowers for my mom's wedding.
Helping her out was her daughter, and one of my childhood friends, Hannah. I remember skipping school one day with another friend and hanging out all day at their beautiful house. They had a big beautiful backyard with a playground, swings and a lot more that I can't remember right now. What I do know, is that I had a blast that day and couldn't wait to go back and hang out more. Unfortunately, that was the last time I spent time over there.
Though we didn't really keep in touch over all these years, Hannah greeted me with a warm smile and hug and I couldn't help but feel the good vibes. After exchanging some excited hugs and summaries of what we're up to, I told them I would love to have a bouquet made. Holly turned around and began working her magic, pulling colorful flowers from left and right until she handed me the final product which turned out absolutely stunning.
After the show, I went and found Holly's account on Instagram and was BLOWN away by her work. These bouquets are simply stunning, and apparently my mom and I aren't the only ones who think so. Holly has OVER 104K FOLLOWERS on Instagram and I'm sure that number is growing by the day.
I'm so happy that business is booming for such an extremely talented woman. If you need flowers for any occasion, Holly is your girl.
