Melissa and Rick’s colorful Leesburg, VA wedding is full of gorgeous floral creations from one of my favorite ladies, Holly ofÂ Holly Heider Chapple Flowers.Â Â The wedding took place at Leesburg’s historicÂ Thomas Birkby House and Holly and Melissa worked together to fill the day with colorful blooms that scream personality!

Melissa’s beautiful gown is by Novissima.Â After purchasing it (off the rack!Â for $500!) at a small local bridal shop in Maryland, she had it completely altered and customized by her seamstress, and the dress bears little resemblance to her bargain buy.Â A great eye for fashionÂ can sometimes save a lot of money!
My favorite element is Melissa’s amazing bouquet, in hues of yellow, green, purple, and vivid fuschia.Â Melissa’s bridesmaids carried matching bouquets which coordinated perfectly with their J Crew cypress gowns.
