Garden Boho Wedding at Arbor Haven in Fredericksburg, Virginia

January 23, 2024

Meredith and Brandon reached out to me for their November wedding at Arbor Haven, a wedding venue in Fredericksburg, VA. It has the loveliest gazebo by a pond, a barn for the reception, and gorgeous views.

Meredith knew she wanted fall colors, but for them to be softened by light pinks, beige, and sage green. She described her aesthetic as somewhere between boho and garden styles. For the bridesmaids they chose simple, small bouquets made up of olive and lisianthus. These popped against their dresses and really let Meredith’s bouquet take the center stage.

For these wedding florals, we knew we wanted to use lots of texture and chose blooms that had interesting textures and ruffles like chrysanthemums, lisianthus, roses, ranunculus, and snapdragons. The challenge here was to put these traditional flowers together in a way that reflected Meredith and Brandon’s aesthetic.

Meredith and Brandon had chosen eucalyptus as their primary foliage and we incorporated fern and olive as well.

One of the most fun parts of this wedding was making the collar for Dexter to wear; and, wear it he did, so handsomely!

Meredith and Brandon had this to say about their wedding florals:

” I HIGHLY recommend booking with Ket for your wedding!! She is so thoughtful, caring, attentive, and talented! She explained every detail throughout the entire planning process and was able to create a beautiful floral color palette and display within my budget.”

"Conveying what I had envisionED was such an easy process and I greatly appreciated how smoothly we were able to communicate"

"Last year I hired Ket to do some boho florals for my 10 year vow renewal. I was OVER THE MOON with what she delivered. Conveying what I had envisioned was such an easy process and I greatly appreciated how smoothly we were able to communicate and plan out the details. If you want a florist with incredible talent, a true heart for what she does and a clear and effective approach to helping you have stunning florals Ket is your girl

"She clearly has a love and talent for her work, and it shines in what she does! 

I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Keturah on the flowers for our wedding. She created my bridal bouquet, boutonnières for my husband and my father, and corsages for the mothers of the bride and groom along with an installation that served as the backdrop for our ceremony and family photos. During our initial consultation she asked lots of questions to make sure she knew our likes, dislikes, and the look and feel of our wedding. Her designs were gorgeous and original, incorporating blooms that were local and in-season. She went the extra mile in building her own frame for the installation when the one she normally used was unavailable. The arrangements she made for the installation were lovely and unique in their use of red amaranth to create a cascading effect. Guests are still complementing us on how lovely the flowers were even 4 months after our wedding!
I would not hesitate to recommend Keturah to a bride (anyone) looking for floral designs using in-season blooms and creative flair.

"I cried when I saw the flowers the day of as they were exactly what I envisioned.

I just wanted to share my sincere gratitude for the INCREDIBLE work Keturah with One Last Avocado did for my wedding. I cried when I saw the flowers the day of as they were exactly what I envisioned. I didn't think it was possible given my budget and timeline. Highly recommend her for any of your events.
