Chris Popple is an amazing Entrepreneur in every sense of the word. Chris and his then, bride-to-be Melissa, wanted something different as a floral arrangement for their center piece on their wedding day but were unable to find a florist that could deliver their request. So, Chris and his groomsmen pulled together, last minute, an incredible center piece that had all the guests talking.
Chris and Melissa had such amazing feedback that they decided to venture out on their own and open a boutique type florist. They bring tastes from all over the world having lived in Australia, the Far-East, London, New York to their shop located on Main Street in Middletown.
The business has flourished and Chris and Melissa have adapted with the times even offering courses and Do-It-Yourself classes for Brides.
The Following is From Candlelight’s Website:
Candlelight Floral Designs is a full service floral and event design company based in Frederick county MD. Using locally grown and sustainably farmed flowers our passion for all things flora translates into beautiful bouquets and arrangements for your wedding or special event.
‘Studio 36′ is our workshop space. Here we offer classes to the community, not only in floral design, but also a wide array of other subjects too with the help of local knowledgeable gurus.
It is in this space that we host DIY brides and couples for the “DIY Wine & Design!”. The bridal party, friends and family can enjoy a fun evening together arranging the flowers for the wedding. There is no prior experience of flower arranging necessary, we will teach you everything you need to know, and will be there to help and guide you every step of the way. This is not only a memorable experience, but is also a great ice breaker, giving your guests something to talk about on the day of the wedding! You then leave the flowers with us at the studio so they can be stored correctly and we will deliver and set them up on the day at the venue. Simple!
We also offer arrangements to hotels and businesses. Make sure the next time you are in Middletown that you stop by Candlelight Florist, next to The Main Cup on Main Street.
