HOLLY HEIDER CHAPPLE FLOWERS
Holly Heider Chapple founded her wedding and event floral design business 25 years ago. Over the years, the Holly Heider Chapple Flowers brand continued to grow and gain international recognition as result of Holly’s involvement in social media and the popularity of her blog, The Full Bouquet. In 2010, Holly founded The Chapel Designers, which is an international collective of wedding and event floral designers. The organization educates, supports and mentors creative while encouraging the authenticity of each designer. Holly has taught her signature 'Hollyish' design style in Moscow, Australia, China, London and Canada.
Sue McLeary is a floral designer, three-dimensional artist and instructor who creates unique and uncommon boundary-pushing floral art including elaborate headpieces, floral wearables, and her signature succulent jewelry. Sue's intricate, seasonally-inspired creations and wearable floral pieces have been described as exquisite "living artwork." Considered one of the country's top designers of floral wearables and succulent jewelry, her work has twice graced the cover of Fusion Flowers magazine, and has been featured in leading industry publications and websites.
FLOURISH BY KAY
"My design philosophy is all about creation & curation. I’d say beautiful floral design is made up of 50% the curation of the flowers and materials, and 50% creating the design with good technique. Being very intentional about my inspiration and ideas, and thoughtfully preparing my flower order has helped me to refine my design skills so much and produce the best results I possibly can."
You may have seen Veronica on our new Mayesh floral design videos in Spanish. Her style can be described as playful, unexpected, textural. She knew at an early age that her path would be in some sort of creative field and eventually discovered floristry was the outlet that really moved Veronica's heart as an artist.
