Timeless Spring Wedding at Ceresville Mansion

June 28, 2024

Brooke & Mohamed celebrated their beautiful wedding at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick, Maryland, with a classic white and green theme, elevated centerpieces, and a peony bouquet.

Holly of Xpression Photography captured the lovely moments of the day.

Romantic and Timeless Garden Style Flowers

The wedding florals were inspired by classic and romantic garden style wedding flowers. They kept it classy and timeless with white flowers and cheerful greenery.

Bridal Party Flowers

Brooke’s bridal bouquet was a lovely and classic peony bouquet. A round bouquet, with hints of ruscus to add contrast. Mohamed wore a simple white boutonniere to match.

Wedding Ceremony Flowers

On each side of the couple, two elevated floral arrangements were staggered on the stage and ground to frame them.

Wedding Centerpieces for the Guest Tables

The couple chose to alternate centerpieces on the guest tables to provide visual interest. Mixing tall centerpieces and low centerpieces creates a welcoming ambience for the guests. Brooke wanted timeless and beautiful table decor to match the beautiful wedding venue Ceresville Mansion. We also spruced up this fireplace mantel with some greenery and flowers.

The elevated centerpieces for the wedding guest tables contained tulips, hydrangeas, roses, snapdragons, and calla lilies. A few of the elevated centerpieces acted as the ceremony backdrop and then were moved to the guest tables. A beautiful way to repurpose flowers.

The low centerpieces were mono-variety bouquets of tulips and dainty vases of roses, snapdragons, stock, and baby’s breath.

Wedding Cake Flower Meadow Makes a Statement

One of the highlights of the wedding flowers was the cake display. This cake meadow started with a base of hydrangea, then the bridesmaid’s bouquets were tucked into the meadow to create a lush cake display.

"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.
